This week, David Halbert’s campaign for Boston City Council At-Large is honored to announce that Halbert has been endorsed by State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz. In a crowded field still taking shape, this key early endorsement assures Halbert will be a formidable candidate and serves as a testament to the strength of Halbert’s operation this cycle.
“David is the kind of progressive leader we need in City Hall to bring transformative and lasting change to Boston,” said Senator Chang-Díaz. “I know David will be a strong advocate and committed ally in his pursuit of educational equity, housing justice, and economic opportunity for all. In his years of service to our city and Commonwealth, he’s shown himself to be a dedicated, innovative, and values-led public servant time and time again. I’m excited to endorse him for City Councilor At-Large.”
“I am humbled to have the support of Senator Chang-Díaz,” said Halbert. “ She is a progressive force in the State House, who centers equity and community in everything she does. I am honored to receive her endorsement, and I look forward to partnering with her in our shared mission of improving the lives of Bostonians.”
Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz is the first Latina elected to the Massachusetts State Senate, and is currently serving her fifth term on behalf of the Second Suffolk District, which is comprised of all or part of the Boston neighborhoods of Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Mission Hill, Roslindale, Roxbury, and the South End. Senator Chang-Díaz is the first member of Boston’s State House delegation to endorse Halbert. She joins a steadily-growing list of formal endorsers, including 2013 mayoral candidate and former State Representative Charlotte Golar Richie, and 2019 Boston City Council At-Large candidate Alejandra St. Guillen.
