OPENLY GAY & FIRST LATINX WOMAN RUNS FOR BOSTON CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE SEAT

The Rainbow Times - June 6, 2019

If there is something that the mid-term elections have taught Americans is that the political arena is shifting because voters are more interested in people who bring them results, not just promises, who share similar backgrounds and intersectionalities. Those elections resulted in the highest number of LGBT people ever holding public office, including women and people of color—from various races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. In Boston, Alejandra St. Guillen, isn’t just another candidate. If elected, she will make history as the first Latinx woman to take a seat on the Boston City Council.
