NEWNC Candidate: Anne Devlin Tagliaferro, #5 on the Ballot


I am running for re-election because I like having a voice for my neighbors. I am the longest member on the council and feel that I have the best interest in my vote for the community.

I have lived in North End for about 20 years and love the neighborhood. I was one of the founding members of the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park and was on fundraising committee for 10 years and chaired it for 5 years.

#5 on Ballot and appreciate your vote.
Anne Devlin Tagliaferro
