At the June 8th, 2017 North End Waterfront Residents’ Association meeting, Margaret Farmer discussed her vision for the City of Boston. Farmer is running for District 1 City Councilor in the upcoming primary election this September. Running against Lydia Edwards, who was just endorsed by State Senator Joe Boncore, and Stephen Passacantilli, Farmer proudly noted, “I am the only person in this race who doesn’t work for the mayor.”
Farmer’s three main issues:
- Development, Housing, and Land Use
- Transportation, Traffic, and Parking
- Boston’s Public Schools
Farmer plans to fight for an inner harbor ferry that will connect East Boston, Charlestown, the North End, Downtown, and the Seaport. With less and less space to build new roads in Boston, Farmer suggests the inner harbor ferry will help with transportation issues in the city.
As an East Boston resident, Farmer has served as the president of the Jeffries Point Neighborhood Association for over five years. Currently, Farmer is the Director of Development for North Suffolk Mental Health Association.
