State Representative Adrian Madaro of the 1st Suffolk district today endorsed Lydia Edwards for Boston city councilor.

“Lydia Edwards is a strong voice and champion for working families,” says Rep. Madaro. “She has a proven track record of getting results, has a relentless work ethic and is the right choice to lead us forward. I’m proud to endorse Lydia and am excited to help her become our next City Councilor.”

I look forward to advocating with Rep. Madaro to be sure all residents have a seat at the table to define their neighborhood as your next city councilor.”
