Stephen Passacantilli, a North End civic leader, Boston Public Schools parent, and former staffer to City Councilor Sal LaMattina, will formally launch his campaign for Boston City Council (District 1) in the North End next week. Passacantilli’s North End Kickoff is next Thursday, June 15 from 6-9pm at Filippo Ristorante on Causeway Street.
Passacantilli said, “I’m excited to officially launch my campaign for Boston City Council here in the North End — the community where I grew up. I am running for City Council because I want to ensure that all residents of the North End, Charlestown, and East Boston have access to great schools close to home, safe streets, accessible transportation, and top-notch services for our seniors.”
He continued, “I have been out knocking on doors, attending community events, and calling voters, and the response has been incredible. I know how important it is for the North End to have a real voice in government. I will be a bold, independent voice for our communities, and I will always put you first.”
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 a member of the Ward 3 Democratic Committee.
Passacantilli and his wife, Renee, are raising their two children, Grace and Evan, just around the corner where he grew up in the North End.
