Last Monday, Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley joined the Greater Boston Young Democrats for their monthly meeting. Pressley, who currently serves as an At-Large Councilor, is mounting a primary challenge against Congressman Mike Capuano, who was first elected to the seat in 1998. The 7th Congressional includes most of Boston, a sizable share of Cambridge, a small part of Milton, and then all of Chelsea, Everett, Revere, and Somerville.
Pressley spoke of how the 7th Congressional district is both incredibly diverse and incredibly unequal and underscored the role that policy has played in creating such inequality (and thus must play in fixing it). In particular, she emphasized the value of a cooperative governance style, inviting those in attendance to deliver testimony before Congress on issues that matter to them.
