Boston City Council president Michelle Wu will vote "No" on a November referendum to lift the state charter school cap, echoing the position of several other city politicians.
In a tweet posted earlier this week by "Save our Public Schools," an anti-charter schools organization that is working to defeat the November referendum, Wu donned a "Save our Public Schools" sticker and offered her endorsement for the grass-roots campaign.
"Thank you @BOSCityCouncil President @wutrain for the endorsement today! #NoOn2," the tweet from Save our Public Schools read. #NoOn2 has become the preferred hashtag for opponents of the referendum, which will be Question 2 on the November ballot.
Wu's position should not come as a surprise. Over the summer, the Boston City Council passed a full-body resolution opposing the expanded charter school cap, and Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh has also announced he will vote "No" in November.
