Nguyen of the 18th Essex District  (parts of Andover, Boxford, North Andover, and Tewksbury) endorsed Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston today, citing her powerful advocacy for education, healthcare, the environment and economic justice. 

 “I’m proud to support my friend and sister in service, Michelle

Wu, to become the next mayor of Boston. She is a strong advocate for public education, healthcare, our environment, and economic justice for all. I look forward to continuing to partner with Michelle on issues that matter to residents across the Commonwealth, and to join city and state government in bringing diverse voices into the process,” said State Representative Tram Nguyen.

 “I’m grateful to have the support of Representative Nguyen, a

trailblazer and strong voice for justice in her district and for all of us across the Commonwealth. We’re building a coalition to get things done throughout every neighborhood of Boston and across the Commonwealth, and I am excited to have Representative Nguyen on our team,” said Michelle Wu
