Ed Flynn has a long history of public service, and has made many friends in Boston Chinatown and other neighborhoods of the second district of Boston City Council over past 10 months. “Ed is a strong leader.

She has the ability to listen to different voices and represent those traditionally under-represented. A diversified and multicultural city as Cambridge will benefit from her unique life experiences and perspectives,” said Connie Dai.
