SENA 9158 endorses the candidacy of Joseph Ruggiero for State Representative from East Boston.
Mr. Ruggiero, a community activist has indicated his support for union issues along with his willingness to assist us on legislation important to the membership. SENA 9158 joins Mayor Marty Walsh and Councillor Frank Baker in endorsing his candidacy. We ask all members residing in East Boston to vote on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.
In conjunction with the 2024 Committee, SENA 9158 will begin providing our members, particularly those residing in our City neighborhoods with information pertaining to upcoming meetings. While acknowledging the Olympics are still years away, infrastructure topics like logistics and transportation will begin to be discussed. As we have see over the past month any assistance that can be provided to improve transportation in and out of Boston should be open for discussion. In addition these meeting provide a forum as to what impact it may have in our daily lives.
For those of us who have worked decades for the City you may remember when Mayor Kevin White sponsored "The Great Cities of The World" back in 1978. At that time it was in conjunction with Boston's 350th birthday and a time when Mayor's from across the world came to Boston to celebrate our history. It will be interesting to see whether 50 years later if Boston is the Olympics host City.
My name is Stephen Bright the Transportation Department stewart and I'm running the 2015 Boston Marathon for Team MR8, the Richard family, and for their son Martin.
I am running this race because I have never felt more powerless than I did after the 2013 Boston Marathon. The finish line is about a mile from my apartment and I felt like just a scared bystander to such a terrible tragedy. I wanted to do something to help those impacted, but what?
The answer came to me during the 2014 Marathon. I went for the first time last year to support some friends and I was overwhelmed by the atmosphere. Rather than being your typical race with people only cheering for those that they knew, spectators were going crazy for complete strangers. The raw emotion was palpable, and rather than it being a somber occasion, it was a triumph.
I knew then that I wanted to run for Team MR8 in 2015. I am running so that people remember the tragedy that happened that day and the selflessness and courage that many responded with. I am running to honor the Richard family, whose strength and resolve in dealing with the innumerable challenges they have faced has been extraordinary. But most importantly, I want to run for Martin to ensure that his message of peace is not forgotten.
Please help me reach my goal of raising $7,500 (and hopefully more) for Team MR8. Running this race is an incredible honor and supporting the Richard family and Martin's memory is very important to me. I appreciate any and all contributions, and I cannot thank you enough for your support. Please help by clicking below.
