All my readers who live in the city of Boston, please set aside the time to vote in the Boston Preliminary Election at your local polling place between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Candidates are running for Boston City Council for At Large offices and in Districts Five, Seven, Eight, and Nine. The other districts are sadly uncontested. Your vote tomorrow will help decide which candidates advance to the General Election on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. If you need help determining were to vote use this handy online tool.
Municipal elections are often overlooked in Boston allowing candidates who don’t represent the best interests of Boston’s people to gain off. Please take the time to participate and make sure our city gets the best representation possible. If you’re not sure who to vote for – and lord knows the local news media doesn’t help – here are some resources I’ve found with the candidates’ statements on various issues (note: I’m sharing these for informational purposes and not as an endorsement for any candidates).
- Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition survey responses
- Progressive Massachusetts questionnaire responses
- ACLU Massachusetts questionnaire responses
- Boston Coalition For Education Equity questionnaire responses
