In a letter dated October 4, 2023, Alfred Lattanzi, the incumbent candidate for ward 6 city council, was informed that his campaign for reelection was being endorsed by the Boston Labor Council.
The letter, written by Executive Secretary-Treasurer Darlene Lombos, described the surging support for unions throughout the country and the organization of union workers on a daily basis.
“The time is ripe to unite against the corporate elite who want to make themselves richer off the backs of working people. With strong partnerships, we can continue to make Greater Boston a region for all of us,” stated Lombos.
“Together, unions represent more than 100,000 hardworking families throughout every neighborhood in Greater Boston. We stand for opportunity, equity, and safety. We’re hotel workers, construction workers, healthcare workers, janitors, teachers, and more. We are also voters. Our labor champions on City Councils, School Committees and in Mayors’ offices across the region are essential to creating communities where working people can live and thrive,” stated the executive secretary-treasurer.
“Thank you for engaging in our endorsement process and for pledging to fight together for our communities.”
