Stephen Passacantilli, a North End civic leader, Boston Public Schools parent, and former staffer to City Councilor Sal LaMattina has earned the endorsements of prominent local organizations, including the Charlestown-based Bricklayers & Allied Craftsmen Local 3, East Boston’s Ward 1 Democratic Committee, and AFSCME Council 93.

Earlier this summer, Passacanillti was endorsed by other local labor unions and organizations, including the Ward 3 Democratic Committee, UNITE HERE! Local 26, Painters & Allied Trades DC 35, Boston Firefighters Local 718, Iron Workers Local 7, Pipe Fitters Local 537, and the Massachusetts Laborers District Council.

Passacantilli said, “With Election Day less than two weeks away, I’m excited that our campaign continues to pick up momentum.  It’s great having the support of such a broad-based coalition of supporters from each and every neighborhood in District 1 as we work together toward our shared goals – ensuring all residents of District 1 experience economic mobility while living on safe streets, sending their kids to great schools close to home, and retiring in the communities they helped build.”

Many know Passacantilli from his years of public service across Boston. He is a lifelong resident of the North End where he has been deeply involved as past president of his local civic association and through local charities and community organizations like North End Against Drugs (NEAD) and the North End Beautification Committee. Passacantilli is also an active Boston Public Schools parent and serves on the board of the Gavin Foundation.

Passacantilli and his wife, Renée, are raising their two children, Grace and Evan, just around the corner where he grew up in the North End.
