City Councilor At-Large candidate, Philip Frattaroli, held a campaign fundraiser on Tuesday evening at Lucia Ristorante on Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. While the candidate has been canvassing all the neighborhoods in Boston, this is home turf for Philip Frattaroli. Lucia is owned and operated by Donato Frattaroli, Philip’s uncle, and was the first restaurant opened by his father and mother, Filippo and Anna Frattaroli over 35 years ago. Philip has a law degree and also owns nearby Ducali Pizzeria on Causeway Street.
Coincident with the fundraiser, Philip Frattaroli also sponsored an ice cream truck to serve complimentary treats at National Night Out on the Prado. The community event is part of a public safety effort by North End Against Drugs and Boston Police District A-1.
With over 20 candidates vying for the four At-Large seats, the City Councilor At-Large field will narrow to eight contenders during the preliminary election scheduled for Tuesday, September 24, 2013. Find out more about Philip Frattaroli at his website and Facebook page.
