Seamus Whelan on the Ballot!

Published on

We’re on the Ballot!

We are pleased to announce that Seamus Whelan was one of the first three candidates certified for the ballot for City Council at-large in Boston this year! We smashed the massive hurdle of 1,500 signatures in just three weeks using all volunteers and no “professional signature collectors.” All in all we turned in over 2,800 signatures!

We are excited about the responses we received while campaigning. People were excited to hear about a working nurse, union activist, immigrant and open socialist running for office. Going forward, we do need your help to continue to make such an impressive impact for independent working class politics and socialist ideas.

We’d like you to donate and volunteer for the campaign. We’ll be holding a celebration and fundraiser to build support, have fun and talk about next steps for the campaign after the final ballot announcement later in June. Watch this spot to hear more about the front lines in the battle against corporate domination of Boston politics!
