Boston City Councilor Tim McCarthy (D-5) today announced his endorsement of Joe Avellone’s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts.
“I am proud to endorse Joe Avellone to be the next Governor of Massachusetts,” said McCarthy, who represents Hyde Park, Mattapan and Roslindale. “Joe is the only candidate in this race who understands the middle class. I met Joe over the summer while I was campaigning. I was amazed to see him constantly at neighborhood events throughout the city; it was like nothing I've ever seen from a candidate running for Governor before. Hyde Park, Mattapan and Roslindale need a leader like Joe in the Governor's office. His track record of creating thousands of middle class jobs is what my district needs and that’s why I am supporting him.”
“It is truly an honor to have the endorsement of Councilor McCarthy,” said Avellone. “Throughout his career, Tim has worked tirelessly on a range of issues that impact the day to day lives of all Bostonians. Whether it was with the Office of Neighborhood Services, the Boston Youth Fund, or most recently, the Department of Public Works, Tim has shown that he’s truly passionate about helping people and fixing problems. Tim truly cares about the people of Boston and I’m so proud to have his support.”
Joe Avellone is a Democrat running for Governor of Massachusetts. He has served in various management leadership roles throughout his distinguished private and public sector career, including surgeon, entrepreneur, healthcare executive, Selectman and Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserves.
