Boston Globe names city council candidate Lydia Edwards “2017 Game Changer”

District 1 City Council Candidate Lydia Edwards

(BOSTON, MA May 22, 2017) – Lydia Edwards, East Boston resident and candidate for district 1 Boston City Councilor, was named a 2017 Game Changer by the Boston Globe as part of their series highlighting innovation and leadership in the metro Boston area.

The Globe praised Edwards ability to build relationships and conversations among “three constituencies that often can feel as if they’re speaking completely different languages”: tenants, landlords, and city hall to come up with solutions for gentrification and displacement. 

“We have to come up with a way we can talk and have all of us feel like part of the solution,” Edwards says. “I am honored to receive this distinction from the Boston Globe and to shed light on this issue.”

Edwards campaign kickoff is taking place in East Boston on Wednesday, May 24th at 5:30PM at La Hacienda located at 150 Meridian Street. All are welcomed to attend.
