“Boston is building a powerful new girls’ network. Yesterday, voters elected four competent and qualified women to the Boston City Council. This marks the beginning of a new era of women’s leadership in Boston,” said Barbara Lee, founder and president of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation and the Barbara Lee Political Office.
“I am thrilled that the number of women serving on the city council will double from two to four, and look forward to the leadership of newly-elected Councilors Andrea Campbell and Annissa Essaibi-George, and the continued leadership of Councilors Michelle Wu and Ayanna Pressley These women have what it takes to get results for their constituents and create effective public policy that is good for Boston families.”
