    Dear Friends,
    Thank you for your endorsement for Annissa George.

    i wish I could vote for her but I don’t live in Boston. I’m telling my Boston friends to vote for her.
    Wu has the politicians endorsements – George has the people -the workers- the people – the unions – against defunding police – for firefighters.

    I don’t believe in the polls. Always proud to stand with the Carmen’s Union,
    Your Friend Marilyn,
    (Governor’s Councillor Marilyn Petitto Devaney
