Felix Arroyo Kicks Off Campaign for Mayor

City Councilor Felix G. Arroyo announces he will run for mayor Tuesday morning.

Standing in front of a wall lined with supporters, another city councilor announced he would be running for mayor Tuesday morning.

City Councilor Felix G. Arroyo officially entered his name into the race at a press conference from SEIU Local 615 Tuesday morning. If elected, Arroyo, who lives in Jamaica Plain, would be Boston’s first Latino mayor.

Arroyo answered a few questions from the media, including one about his campaign’s approach.

“I will have the strongest grassroots campaign, powered by committed volunteers and funded by small donors, that’s…the only way that I would want to win, and that’s exactly how I will govern,” he said.

Arroyo has been an organizer advocating for workers’ rights at SEIU 16.
