The day after his mayoral rival rolled out two high-profile endorsements, Councilor John R. Connolly announced three endorsements of his own.
Standing in the South End on Wednesday morning, Connolly accepted the backing of state Representative Aaron M. Michlewitz, who represents Chinatown, Bay Village, and parts of the South End and Beacon Hill.
“John has been a true progressive leader in Boston and no doubt will be the true progressive mayor for the city of Boston,” he said.
Michlewitz, who was an early supporter of Charlotte Golar Richie during the preliminary race, said that he considered both candidates closely before deciding to back Connolly.
“John and I share the same belief that young families are the lifeblood and the future of this city,” Michlewitz said. “And I know that John will be ready to roll up his sleeves as mayor and take on the tough issues that will help young families thrive in the city of Boston for generations to come.”
