At-large city council candidate Tomas Gonzalez submits over 3,500 signatures


AT LARGE CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE TOMAS GONZALEZ SUBMITS OVER 3,500 SIGNATURES, SECURELY EARNING A PLACE ON THE BALLOT FOR THE SEPTEMBER
PRIMARY

BOSTON - This Tuesday, May 19, was that last day for at-large City Council candidates to compile the necessary signatures to secure a place on the ballot and, while other campaigns were rushing to compile their signatures at polling places and submit them on the last day of the signature drive, the Gonzalez campaign demonstrated solid organization. The Gonzalez campaign turned in 3,521 signatures, over two times the number of signatures
required to secure a place on the ballot. Support for the Gonzalez campaign poured in from neighborhoods across the city and over 100 dedicated volunteers joined the field team for the signature drive.

If signatures are any indication of a campaign's strength, the Gonzalez campaign is in a good position. Just last weekend, campaign supporters fanned out across Boston to collect the last batch of signatures in a city wide blitz. "We had people in every neighborhood from Hyde Park to
Charlestown," said Dan Hoffer, Field Director for the Committee to Elect Tomás Gonzalez.

The Elections Department reports that Gonzalez already has his 1800 certified signatures along with a handful of other candidates. So far it looks like at least 12 candidates will make the ballot, setting the stage
for a very exciting election season. "I welcome the chance begin community dialog on jobs, public safety and the economy during debates across the city. I want to thank all of those supporters who took the time to sign my
nomination sheets. I intend to campaign diligently through the September Primary to introduce myself to the voters of Boston and will continue to make my case to voters and work to earn votes." said Tomás Gonzalez from his
Tremont St. headquarters.

A one-time aide to Mayor Menino, Gonzalez served as Latino Liaison to Menino from 2002 to 2004. He launched his campaign for an at-large City Council seat this spring, promising to leverage his City Hall experience and background as a community organizer to bring change to the City Council.

In addition to his work in city government as Mayor Menino's Latino Liaison, Gonzalez served as Chief of Staff for the city's Elderly Commission. Born in South Boston and raised in Jamaica Plain and Dorchester, Gonzalez attended Boston Public Schools and was the first in his family to attend college. He began his career in public service as a Recruitment Manager for City Year, followed by stints as Youth Center Director at the City of Cambridge Youth Programs, as well as at the Brookside Community Health Center at Northeastern University as the Youth Sport Health Coordinator.

The Committee to Elect Tomas Gonzalez has cited his experience growing up in tough neighborhoods, as well as his years working to address the needs of some of the most underserved populations of Boston, as the driving force behind his candidacy. "Tomás has built his career on his record of public service and is committed providing the city services the people of Boston deserve," said
Hoffer.
