BOSTON—This week, City Council President Bill Linehan, District 3 City Councilor Frank Baker and At-Large City Councilors Michael Flaherty and Michelle Wu endorsed State Representative Nick Collins for re-election, citing Collins’ efforts to bring state resources to the City of Boston and his hands-on work in the communities he represents.

Council President Bill Linehan stated, “Nick’s work as Chairman of the Boston Delegation to deliver state funding to the City of Boston will help strengthen city services with our education system at the core. Nick’s successful efforts to bring capital funding to his district will not only create good, blue-collar jobs but also ensure that South Boston gets the infrastructure upgrades we badly need. I am proud to stand with him for re-election.”

District 3 City Councilor Frank Baker said of Rep. Collins, “I support Nick Collins because of the hands-on approach he takes to the job, working with his partners in City government to address the day-to-day, quality of life needs of his constituents. For these reasons and many more, I am proud to endorse Nick Collins for re-election.”

On why he is endorsing Collins, At-Large Councilor Michael Flaherty stated, “Working closely with Nick Collins on the most challenging issues of importance to our community—substance abuse, drug related crime and violence and overdevelopment—I can say that nobody works more effectively for his constituents. Nick operates every day according to a single principle: How can I help my neighbors? I am proud to call him my state representative, a friend and to support his re-election because nobody works harder or cares more.”

First term At-Large City Councilor Michelle Wu said, “Nick Collins is a fierce advocate for his constituents, a thoughtful policymaker, and a friend. I am proud to support Nick in his re-election for State Representative, so that the 4th Suffolk District will continue to have a champion for public safety, neighborhood issues, and inclusion.”

Rep. Nick Collins is seeking a third term in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. The general election is slated for Tuesday Nov. 4th.
