“Being a long-time union member and supporter, I’m extremely honored to receive these endorsements.

I will always support organizations that prioritize their workers’ well-being, just as I will continue to prioritize our residents’ well-being and quality of life,” Silvestri said. “I am grateful to have the support and confidence of the hard-working men and women represented by these unions, and I will continue fighting to ensure any large-scale development in Revere is 100% union-built.
During his time on the council, Silvestri has worked hard to support our local economy and explore new economic opportunities for Revere and its residents and remains committed to ensuring our community continues to thrive.
