Team Flaherty Marches On!
Discussing the plight of homicide survivors.


As a city and community, we face some extraordinary opportunities. I am confident that together we can transform Boston and move forward into a new era of accountability, transparency, and inclusion.
With innovation, courage, and a fierce belief in what we can achieve together, we can make Boston an even better place to live, work and raise a family. I look forward to this new chapter in the story of Boston. Please know that if I can be of assistance to you or your family, be it a constituent request or policy issue – I am ready to help. My door is always open.

To the thousands who participated in the initial peaceful march honoring the legacy of Mr. George Floyd and calling for change that returned home after its completion, I thank you. I am sorry that those with ill-intentions usurped the narrative of your event and put your lives and cause in danger. 


Following a very productive virtual hearing on Tuesday, May 5th with testimony from project advocates, neighborhood leaders, and representatives from the City of Boston, Councilor Flaherty has recommended passage of all 40 projects at the amounts designated. "I was pleased with the quality of the applications we received this year. Each and every project we reviewed was fully deserving of funding," said Councilor Flaherty. "Community Preservation Funds are all about making sure residents have a voice in the betterment of their communities and I am confident that each of these projects will go a long way towards improving the quality of life in our City." 

As an elected official, the well-being and safety of the residents across our city is an utmost priority for me. No one should experience any level of threatening actions directed towards them. My family, my neighbors, my supporters and my staff should not feel that they are in harm's way. I feel awful and I am deeply sorry that this incident happened.
