All of the candidates listed above will be serving a two-year term on the council. View their introductions on this video from the last NEWNC meeting.
This year, the NEWNC election saw a relatively low turnout of 107 voters because there were only five candidates running for six open seats, ensuring all nominees would get a seat on the council. Write in votes were not permitted.
The other six sitting members of the council with one more year remaining on their term include: Tina Natale, Carmine Guarino, Sean Hennessey, Damien DiPaola, Tania Green and Ashley McCarthy. There will only be 11 NEWNC members in the coming year with one vacant seat.
The first NEWNC meeting with the new council members is scheduled for Monday, June 11, 2018. It will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 N. Bennet Street, North End, Boston.
NEWNC was created in 1985 by the Mayor’s Office in an effort to increase communication between the neighborhoods and city agencies. NEWNC is comprised of up to twelve North End/Waterfront residents who serve as an advisory board to the City of Boston in municipal affairs. Council members are elected to a two-year term and terms are staggered so that six seats are filled each year. The Council meets on the second Monday of each month (except August).
