Passacantilli said, "I'm excited to
officially launch my campaign for Boston City Council here in East
Boston. I am running for City Council because I want to ensure that all
residents of East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End have access to
great schools close to home, safe streets, accessible transportation,
and top-notch services for our seniors."
He continued, "I have
been out knocking on doors, attending community events, and calling East
Boston voters, and the response has been incredible. I know how
important it is for East Boston to have a real voice in government. I
will be a bold, independent voice for our communities, and I will always
put you first."
Many know Passacantilli from his years of public
service across Boston. He is a lifelong resident of the North End where
he has been deeply involved as past president of his local civic
association and through local charities and community organizations like
North End Against Drugs (NEAD) and the North End Beautification
Committee. Passacantilli is also an active Boston Public Schools parent
