Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu Praises Former Professor, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren at Campaign Kickoff in Lawrence


Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu Praises Former Professor, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren at Campaign Kickoff in Lawrence
Wu was one of six elected officials and the only city official to offer remarks ahead of Warren’s address.
LAWRENCE – On Saturday, Boston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu offered remarks in support of her former Harvard Law Professor and current U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren during Warren’s presidential campaign kickoff in Lawrence, MA.

Wu, who first met Warren in 2009 when the Senator was her Contracts Law professor, spoke of her experiences both in the classroom and working on the Senator’s 2012 campaign as Constituency Director.

“Know this: when Senator Warren sees someone in office who doesn’t represent the people, she doesn't accept it; she gears up for a fight,” said Councilor Wu. “We've seen her start campaigns as the underdog before. We've seen her bring bold ideas that ignite the grassroots before. We’ve seen her win, and then turn her platform into a foundation for changing the system, together.”

The Boston City Councilor At-Large also described the Senator’s influence on her own run for office:

“She's inspired progressive young people, women, first-time candidates from every background and communities who have been left behind, to know that they can run and win elections too. She is a major reason why I ran for office and why countless other young people have run in Massachusetts.”

Councilor Wu offered remarks as part of the program on Saturday, following Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera and Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins. The speaking program also included U.S. Senator Ed Markey, Congresswoman Lori Trahan, and Congressman Joe Kennedy.
