John Connolly seen as a proven champion for kids, schools

I am a member of Stand for Children Massachusetts, and, while Boston mayoral candidate John Connolly has declined the group’s pledge of financial support, I want to set the record straight on our motivation to endorse his campaign. Connolly is a proven champion for kids and our schools. He has continually fought to ensure that the children of Boston have access to the resources they need to succeed in school and in life.

Connolly secured quality food in our school cafeterias and passed a resolution to put great teachers in our classrooms. These are reasons that Stand for Children Massachusetts, which has spent the last decade advocating for better schools here, is supporting him.


As a member of the organization’s Boston chapter, I helped make the decision to endorse Connolly because members of the community must carve the path that shapes our city. Our organization works with parents, teachers, and community members to advocate for education funding and policies that push us forward. Connolly will do the same for us in City Hall.
