The first few days after Labor Day have been a whirlwind but fun and full of terrific news.
I’m pleased to report that the Boston Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW), endorsed my candidate. “For more than 15 years Rosie Hanlon has successfully advocated on behalf of Allston/ Brighton. Rosie understands the importance of utilizing the many resources located within Allston/ Brighton to improve the community and the lives of its citizens,” stated Clare Bertrand, Co-President, Boston NOW.
I’ve continued to campaign hard and well and my campaign continues to attract supporters. As of last count, 130+ households and businesses in Allston-Brighton have placed Rosie Hanlon signs on their lawns and in their windows. These days, it’s hard to drive anywhere without seeing my name lining our streets.
I’ve also made significant updates to my website and encourage you to visit and learn more about both what I’ve done and also what I will do as Allston-Brighton’s next City Councilor. There are so many different challenging we’re facing but I’ve identified 8 priority issues: affordable housing; business viability; city services; civil and human rights; education; environment; institutional expansion; and public safety.
Later today I’m looking forward to attending the Hobart Park Picnic which is always a lot of fun. Before that, I’m going to continue to walk the neighborhoods. I’m now on my fourth pair of shoes! Campaigning isn’t always easy and requires a lot of stamina – but I’m committed and being able to continue to represent, advocate and champion on your behalf is worth every step I take!
I hope to see you on the campaign trails and don’t forget to mark down in your calendar election day – September 25!
