Boston City Councilor At-Large Roundtable
The Boston City Council election cycle is upon us with the general election around the corner on November 8. We continue our candidate roundtables focusing on the City Councilor At-Large race, offering you the chance to decide who to vote for come election day. There’s a total of seven candidates on the ballot, and the roster is as diverse as the city itself--from seasoned politicos, to school teachers, to community activists. The race is heated, with four incumbents fighting to save their seats from three outside opponents. The stakes are high, and not just for the candidates, but for the future of the Boston City Council. This race could reshape the diversity and dynamics among these lawmakers from the number of women on the council, to those representing communities of color.
Today, we meet three of the seven vying to win, or keep a seat on the city council. We’ll be joined by City Councilor At-Large John Connolly, City Councilor At-Large Aynna Pressley, and candidate Sean Ryan.
