Vote for my friend Ayanna Pressley for the EMILY's List Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award

02.12.2015

Dear friend,

It's been a whirlwind since I took office just three weeks ago (to say nothing of the weather). But I wanted to share some exciting news about a friend and partner of mine in government, Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley.

In recognition of her work, Ayanna has been named one of six national finalists for the EMILY's List Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award, which honors women who demonstrate outstanding commitment to leadership and excellence in public service.


Will you join me in casting your vote for Ayanna Pressley and help recognize her leadership for Boston and for Massachusetts?

Since being elected to the City Council, Ayanna has focused on improving the lives of Boston's women and girls, fighting against sexual and domestic violence, and ensuring new economic opportunities. Those are causes that matter deeply to me and to each of us. We are all beneficiaries of her leadership.

The Rising Star Award winner will be announced on March 3rd at EMILY's List 30th Annual National Conference and Gala, where I will also be presenting. I hope you'll join me in casting your vote so I can share the stage with Councilor Pressley.

Please cast your vote here by Friday at midnight.

Thank you so much!
Maura
