Lifelong educator and leader in Revere, School Committeewoman Carol Tye has endorsed Juan Pablo Jaramillo for Revere City Council at-large. Tye has deep roots as a leader in Revere having served as a school teacher, union president, superintendent, and now as school committeewoman. In her endorsement, Carol cites Juan’s experience in local and state government as an asset for the Revere City Council.
“I am proud to support Juan Pablo Jaramillo for Revere City Council at-large. As a colleague of mine on the School Committee, Juan always stood by his values. Juan is a leader fighting for and alongside working families here in Revere and around the Commonwealth. His experience in municipal and state government makes him an asset for our city council. I am confident that he will continue to fight and deliver results for our residents, our students, our parents, our teachers, and our schools as a Revere City Councilor at-large,” said Carol Tye.
Carol has been a fierce advocate for our public schools and the deacon of Revere’s leadership team. Her years of dedication to Revere have earned her the respect of community members, parents, teachers and the students she taught through the years.
“This is likely the most emotional endorsement I have received,” Juan said. “All along this campaign, I have touted the investments that Revere residents made into my life via the education system that set me up for success. It is impossible to talk about the success stories of other working-class kids like me in Revere without acknowledging that those successes have been catalyzed by Carol’s leadership in our city. That is why this endorsement is so humbling to me,” said Jaramillo.
This endorsement demonstrates Juan’s momentum heading into the November 7th General Election. He has received the endorsement of community leaders like School Committeewoman Stacey Rizzo, former Councillor Guinasso, Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna, State Senator Lydia Edwards, and organizations like the AFL-CIO, the Sierra Club, Painters DC35, IBEW 103, SEIU 509, and the Environmental League of Massachusetts, among others.
The last day to vote is Tuesday, November 7th, however early voting begins on October 21st at city hall. Juan will appear as the fifth name on the ballot.
