Ward 15 Dems boost nine for city council

Dorchester ‘s Ward 15 Democratic Committee endorsed nine candidates for at-large city council seats at a meeting on July 20. Candidates must receive a two-thirds approval vote from the group to gain approval.

The panel endorsed District 4 Councillor Andrea Campbell, the council’s president. The at-large candidates endorsed included incumbents Michelle Wu, Annissa Essaibi-George and Michael Flaherty, along with hopefuls Priscilla E. Flint Banks, Alejandra St. Guillen, Domingos DaRosa, David Halbert and Julia Mejia.

“These endorsements culminated the six-month process during which the committee interviewed 12 of the 15 candidates for the at-large seats as well as the incumbents in Districts 3 and 4,” said Ward Committee spokesman Edward Cook.

The committee also passed a resolution supporting for Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, one of the four US Representatives who have been the subject of repeated attacks by the president.
