The Ward 5 Boston Democratic Committee announced that they are endorsing Rachael Rollins as their candidate for District Attorney of Suffolk County. In doing so, Ward 5 joins Rachael’s 75 endorsers, which include Boston Wards 4, 11, 12, and 19.
The Ward 5 Committee Chair Kenzie Bok stated: “We’re thrilled to be endorsing Rachael Rollins for this key role in our criminal justice system. We spent the spring and summer emphasizing the importance of this down-ballot race to how justice is served in our community, and we were proud to see Rachael win her historic primary victory with extensive support across our diverse neighborhoods of Beacon Hill, Bay Village, Back Bay, the South End, Chinatown, and Fenway. We know that Rachael will bring strong, thoughtful, progressive leadership to the District Attorney’s office, and that she will implement fair policy solutions that will make our neighborhoods safer by building trust. We hope that voters across Ward 5 and all of Suffolk County will join us in spreading the word and voting for Rachael Rollins on Tuesday, November 6th.”
Rollins responded by saying: “I am truly proud to have the endorsement of the Ward 5 Boston Democratic Committee. In the Primary, we made history, and I could not have done it without the support of the Ward 5 voters. By building a large coalition of support — that draws on the knowledge, experience, and passion of Ward 5 residents — I know that we can win on November 6th. Together, we will make truly progressive criminal justice reform a reality in Suffolk County and in the Commonwealth.”
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. To learn more about Rollins or to get involved, please visit: www.rollins4da.com.
