Boston City Councilors
So far in 2014, we’ve enjoyed exploring the careers of some of Boston’s City Councilors, some of whom are still widely recognized as Boston icons today. There are many more City Councilors who we haven’t had time to explore, and many of them are featured in various news stories in our collections. Even though we will no longer be highlighting a specific City Councilor each month, we encourage to look into them on your own. Here’s a list of some to get you started.
