Attorney General Maura Healey today endorsed Kenzie Bok (District 8) for Boston City Council.
Bok, a lifelong Bostonian, has been a community leader at the neighborhood association and ward committee level and a former volunteer Civics teacher in the Boston Public Schools.

She will be an excellent representative for the people of the Eighth District.”
“I am so honored to earn Attorney General Healey’s endorsement,” Bok said. “She is a leader who shows what it means to fight tirelessly every day on behalf of the public interest. I’m deeply grateful for her vote of confidence in my work bringing people together to make the city we love more affordable, equitable, and inclusive.”
