Our Common Values: Unity, Hope, Love, and Empathy

I’m Voting for Ed Flynn

Ed Flynn grew up and still lives in South Boston, one of the neighborhoods that make up our District 2. He shares the collective values of our diverse district of Bay Village, Beacon Hill, Chinatown, The South End, and South Boston. And that is I will vote for him on November 7, 2017

come rain, sleet, or snow.

This is one of the most important elections in recent memory. There was a time when coaching youth sports, participation in neighborhood associations, and service to one’s country was a requisite to running for public office.

Only one candidate running has consistently demonstrated his devotion to our nation and our community. Ed Flynn is a combat veteran who served in the Navy for 25 years. He is a member of City Side Neighborhood Association, South Boston Citizens’ Association, and coaches youth sports. Furthermore, he is an active parent at the Josiah Quincy School in Chinatown. Massachusetts is one of the only Constitutions in the world that guarantees public as a right. Ed Flynn’s commitment to the right to public education is unwavering, and he has a personal stake in our education system as the parent of a student in the one of Boston Public Schools.

Only one candidate has experience promulgating our collective values into effective public policy. Ed Flynn worked for five years in the Department of Labor where he fought to improve labor conditions, expand access to health care, and increase the federal minimum wage.

Ed Flynn believes Boston’s diversity to be one of its greatest strengths, and with District 2 being such a diverse district, it is imperative that we elect someone who celebrates Boston’s diversity. I am voting for Ed Flynn because he will represent the core values of this diverse district. I am voting for Ed Flynn because he spent his entire adult life serving his country and his community. I am voting for Ed Flynn on the September 26 Primary Election and the November 7 General Election. He earned my vote because he is man of strong moral fiber who has dedicated his life to serving our country and our district, and he will be the independent, progressive voice we need in City Hall.
