Boston Wrong: Michelle Wu

Many in the community feel betrayed by newly elected City Councillor At-Large Michelle Wu.  Her recent vote to Elect Bill Linehan to Boston City Council Presidency has been increasingly divisive among the progressive base that largely elected her.  Her decision resonates among several groups who would have preferred a different candidate, namely Ayanna Pressley who seemed like an obvious choice.  Wu’s vote simultaneously ticked off women, LGBT, young professionals, as well as communities of color who were wooed during the campaign and felt abandoned by this very first vote of 2014.  We will see if Wu will be able to recover from this disappointing decision or if this a sign of more to come.
