Governor Deval Patrick Endorses Michelle Wu for Mayor

 Governor Deval Patrick Endorses Michelle Wu for Mayor

Boston, MA— Former Governor Deval Patrick endorsed Michelle Wu for Mayor today. Citing her proven track record and bold vision, Governor Patrick called Wu the best candidate to bring people together and move Boston forward.  


“The best leaders bring people together, with hope and determination, to forge solutions to pressing problems. That starts during a campaign, not just afterwards, and has to be about all the people, not just the ones already on your side. Michelle Wu has been that kind of leader on the City Council, and in this campaign. She is the kind of Mayor Boston needs and deserves. 


Michelle’s vision, intellect, energy and heart will move the City forward on housing, transportation, climate, education, public safety and so much more. Her humility and independence incline her to listen to the views of others. She has demonstrated her understanding that, instead of more division or scare tactics, Boston needs transformative leadership that looks to the future. I am proud to endorse her for Mayor of Boston,” said Governor Deval Patrick.


“I’m grateful and honored to have the support of Governor Deval Patrick. Governor Patrick, whose legacy of bringing people together in politics and public service, has opened the doors for a new generation to lead. I look forward to continuing to partner with him on the urgent challenges facing Boston and the Commonwealth,” said Michelle Wu.
