Michael F. Flaherty draws coveted #1 Ballot Spot for Nov. 5th City Council Election

Incumbent and Candidate for Re-Election Continues Citywide Outreach Efforts

In the much anticipated ballot drawing for November 5th’s final election for Boston City Council candidates, Boston City Councilor At-Large Michael F. Flaherty’s name was drawn for the coveted first spot in a public ballot drawing held by the City of Boston’s Elections Department. The ballot drawing, which was held on Thursday, October 3rd, 2019 at 11:00a.m. at City Hall, set the stage for the citywide general election scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, 2019. 

Councilor Flaherty, who is seeking another term as a Boston City Councilor At-Large, had a strong showing of results in field of 15 At-Large candidates leading into the preliminary election and thus securing a spot on the ballot for the general election. “Having your name printed first or in the upper tier can help in a citywide election,” stated Councilor Flaherty. “You just don’t want to be last on the ballot in a competitive field like this one.”

With approximately 4 weeks remaining until the general election, Councilor Flaherty continues to reach out to voters across Boston. “Residents in Boston want to build on the work we’ve accomplished — increased access to affordable housing, closing the opportunity gaps, and stabilizing our neighborhoods through community preservation efforts,” stated Flaherty. “In order to continue these efforts and more, I look forward to reaching out to more voters to earn their support as my team and I campaign until polls close on election day on November 5th.”

As a husband, father, neighbor and proud lifelong Bostonian, Boston City Councilor At-Large Michael F. Flaherty is committed to ensuring that Boston is an accessible, equitable, and inclusive city for our residents.
