Election Day is Tuesday November 7!
I have a proven record of standing up to special interests and getting things done—from passing legislation that protects women workers to leading a city department on day-to-day issues facing Bostonians in housing and development.
Now more than ever, we need an independent voice with a fresh perspective representing us in City Hall to fight for what matters: great education for our kids, pathways to home ownership, and reliable transportation.
I promise to be your advocate and fight for our communities as your next city councilor.
Vote November 7th!
- Lydia Edwards

I will be a champion for public education across the district and for all Bostonians.

  • Transportation and Parking

    Traffic congestion is a huge problem for many parts of the district, in part because our district has much to offer and serves as connector for Boston, the suburbs and, through the airport, much of the world. I will work closely with the Boston Transportation Department, MBTA and MassDOT to reduce traffic congestion and ensure our streets are safe and sustainable, and I will approach developers with an eye toward aligning new projects to meet city goals on accessing to housing, quality transportation and environmental sustainability.
