Stephen Passacantilli, a North End civic leader and Boston Public Schools parent running for District 1 City Council has been endorsed by City Councilor Salvatore LaMattina.  LaMattina has represented Charlestown, East Boston, and the North End on the City Council since 2006.

Passacantilli has also been endorsed by State Representative Aaron Michlewitz, the North End/Waterfront’s Ward 3 Democratic Committee, and numerous other local organizations and unions.

Councilor LaMattina said, “I am excited to support Stephen Passacantilli to be District 1’s next City Councilor. Stephen has done the job and he has both the heart and the experience to deliver for East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End. There is no one more passionate and better prepared to fight for our neighborhoods than Stephen Passacantilli, and I will proudly be casting my vote for him on Tuesday.”

Passacantilli said, “Having the support of Sal LaMattina – someone who has done this job for more than a decade – means the world to me.  Both Sal and Aaron Michlewitz live here and work on our behalf every day, and it is an honor having their backing.  On the City Council, I will work collaboratively with neighbors, local businesses, and our elected officials to ensure that residents of the North End, Charlestown, and East Boston have a great quality of life and responsive constituent services.
