Overwhelming Support For Kelley as Ward 5 Democrats Endorse for City Council Election
Last evening, Boston’s Ward 5 Democrats held their candidate’s night for the 2017 municipal election. The group voted overwhelmingly to endorse Mike Kelley’s candidacy for District 2 City Council, making him the first candidate in the race to receive an endorsement from a Democratic Ward Committee. Mike and his progressive Putting People First agenda received 17 of the 24 endorsement votes cast. He has advocated on behalf of Bostonians for his entire professional life, and looks forward to continuing his service as a member of the Boston City Council. The Ward 5 Democrats have long been tireless advocates for progressive values and ideals in Boston. Mike is running a campaign on the issues that matter most to the residents of District 2, and the endorsement from the Ward 5 Democrats is further proof that his vision for the district is one that resonates. He looks forward to working with the members of the Ward 5 Dems as the campaign progresses, and would be honored to serve them as their next District City Councilor.
