Labor-backed candidates won big on November 7. In Boston, Lydia Edwards won a hotly contested City Council seat in District 1. Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, and Michael Flaherty won City Council At-Large seats.
In Malden, Local 888 member Emmanuel Marsh, lost his race for Malden School Committee by only two votes. The vote will be recounted because of how tight the election results were. It shows that every vote counts!
In Somerville, Local 888 candidates cleaned up, winning seats for challengers JT Scott (Ward 2), Ben Ewen-Campen (Ward 3) and SEIU member Jesse Clingan (Ward 4). Somerville also re-elected 888 endorsed incumbent Matt McLaughlin (Ward 1).
