With friends at Campaign Kick-Off!
2016 Boston City Council Swearing-In
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.
