All politics are local, the saying goes, and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey took a break from mounting legal challenges to President Trump’s administration Wednesday to endorse Michael Kelley in Boston’s District 2 City Council race.
“As City Councilor, Mike Kelley will bring people, organizations and government together to find solutions that help everyone and I look forward to working in partnership with him,” Healey said in a press release.
Kelley, a longtime South End resident and former aide to Mayor Thomas M. Menino, is running for the seat that will soon be vacated by Councilor Bill Linehan. The district includes South Boston, the South End, and Chinatown.
“I am humbled by Attorney General Healey’s support for my campaign, and I look forward to working with her on developing creative and effective solutions to the challenges facing District 2 and all of Boston,” Kelley said in a press release.
Also vying for the seat are Ed Flynn, a Navy veteran and the son of former mayor Raymond Flynn, and Corey Dinopoulos, a community organizer who cofounded the privately backed Boston 2024 Olympics bid.
US Representative Stephen F. Lynch, a South Boston Democrat, endorsed Flynn in June.
