After consulting with representatives of the RTA and WTA on their Candidate Endorsement Committee, the MTA has announced it is supporting Juan Jaramillo for the special primary to replace retiring State Rep and former Speaker Robert DeLeo.
Here is the full endorsement on Juan’s Facebook page.
He is also endorsed by the SEIU, Act UP, Progressive Mass, MA Alliance, and several Revere elected officials including Councilor Patrick Keefe and School Committee Members Carol Tye and Susan Gravellese.
For purposes of disclosure while I am both an RTA and MTA member, I was not part of the committee that made this selection, although I am pleased with this result as Juan appears to be the most progressive candidate running and he has inspired countless students of mine to support his campaign.
This is a once in a generation opportunity to put a progressive in this seat. Consider donating.
