Sen. Ed Markey endorses Michelle Wu for Mayor of Boston

BOSTON — Michelle Wu just gained another high-profile endorsement.

Senator Ed Markey announced his “strong endorsement” of Wu for Mayor of Boston, citing her “leadership on climate issues and her commitment to a more equitable city.”

Wu now has the backing of both Massachusetts U.S. Senators. Recently, Wu also was endorsed by acting mayor Kim Janey, who Wu beat out in the preliminary election.

“As mayoral candidate and as Boston city councilor, Michelle Wu has championed the Green New Deal and made transformational action on climate change central to her commitment to the City of Boston. Her proposals to expand access to free public transportation, decarbonize our economy, and invest in the basic rights of clean air and water will put Boston on a path to implement the systemic changes we need to provide our children, workers, and families a just and livable future. Michelle Wu will make Boston a Green New Deal city and position us to lead the national movement for climate action,” said Senator Markey.
