Ed Markey today became the second senator to endorse Michelle Wu, citing her environmental activism:
As mayoral candidate and as Boston city councilor, Michelle Wu has championed the Green New Deal and made transformational action on climate change central to her commitment to the City of Boston. Her proposals to expand access to free public transportation, decarbonize our economy, and invest in the basic rights of clean air and water will put Boston on a path to implement the systemic changes we need to provide our children, workers, and families a just and livable future. Michelle Wu will make Boston a Green New Deal city and position us to lead the national movement for climate action
Annissa Essaibi George traveled to Nubian Square yesterday to unveil her "Equity, Inclusion and Justice" agenda. WGBH reports.
Some late-campaign nonsense is breaking out in Boston's southern tier. Over the weekend, somebody (described in one account as an "older man on a bicycle") went around Roslindale tossing plastic Easter eggs into people's yards that contained a piece of paper with Michelle Wu's picture and a couple of "thought balloons," one reading "I’m a communist carpetbagger from Chicago." Somebody egged a couple of Annissa Essaibi George signs on the door to the Dance Academy in Hyde Park. Somebody (presumably somebody else) vandalized the signs on the Wu van that has been sitting in the parking lot of the abandoned credit union across from the Corrib on Centre Street in West Roxbury.
Both Tito Jackson and Ayanna Pressley have endorsed the next District 7 (Roxbury) city councilor, Tania Fernandes Anderson, who probably is not running particularly scared in the face of a challenge from perennial loser Roy Owens. Anderson will be the city's first Muslim and African-immigrant city council come November.
City councilors Matt O'Malley, Michael Flaherty, Julia Mejia, Ed Flynn, Kenzie Bok and Liz Breadon are slated to announce they'll be supporting Lydia Edwards in her bid for a seat in the State Senate.
If you've been waiting for the twice-impeached former guy to endorse somebody for governor of Massachusetts, well, Geoff Diehl is your man.
