I look forward to partnering with them to boldly address our shared challenges, from housing to transportation and climate change,” said Michelle Wu.

I look forward to continuing to partner with her as Mayor,” said Representative Christine Barber


“As a lead sponsor of legislation to lift the statewide ban on rent control — and as a strong proponent of free public transit and a Green New Deal — I’m very proud to endorse Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston because she has a vision for bold, systematic change and a proven ability to bring people together to make progress for all residents,” said Representative Mike Connolly

Michelle has the energy, dedication and bold ideas to make Boston city government work for all of its residents," said Senator Jamie Eldridge. 


“I am proud to endorse my friend Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston.

I look forward to continuing to partner with Michelle to build communities across the Commonwealth that are healthy, safe, and resilient,” said Representative Sean Garballey


“I have known and worked with Michelle for many years, and have seen first hand her character, determination, and vision. She changed the debate on transportation access, and I look forward to working with her on building a modern, affordable, and reliable  rail and bus system for Boston and our entire Commonwealth. She is a leader who brings people together and follows vision with hard work and collaboration — that’s exactly what we need right now,” said Senator Eric Lesser. 


“I am proud to endorse Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston. Since joining the city council in 2014, Michelle has been a bold, progressive leader with a welcoming and inclusive vision for Boston. On so many issues -- from the Green New Deal to affordable housing to racial equity to transportation access -- Michelle has led the way. Michelle understands what is at stake for our children and sets a respectful tone that combines fierce urgency and civility. She will be a terrific mayor,” said Former Democratic Lt. Governor Nominee Quentin Palfrey. 


“I am proud to endorse Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston. She has a proven record of working across all levels of government to get things done and advocate for working families. I look forward to continuing to partner with Michelle to fight for progressive policies that matter to residents across the Commonwealth,” said Representative Jack Patrick-Lewis


“Michelle and I first joined forces to push for riders to have a voice on the MBTA oversight board. Now, it’s a reality. Whether it’s public transit or climate action or uplifting fellow families with young children, Michelle delivers results. She’s the mayoral partner we need on Beacon Hill and she’s the justice-driven leader Bostonians deserve. I am proud and thrilled to endorse Michelle Wu for Mayor,” said Senator Becca Rausch
