Do stuff with and for your neighbors

Hi folks,

My name is Sean and I'm running in the special election to succeed John Tobin as Boston City Councilor for JP and West Roxbury.  I was born and raised in JP, on Lamartine Street.  I went to Boston Public Schools in Roxbury, Dorchester and JP.  I'm a musician by trade, and I also take a keen interest in economics.  I don't own a car, and I use a bicycle for much of my transportation needs, as well as the T.  Last year, I was a music teacher at Boston Latin School, directing school orchestras.  The issue I am focusing on in this race is the state of the public schools - I believe that REAL school reform is long overdue, and that this issue can unite both ends of the district around a common concern.  I also share many of the interests of my JP neighbors, and will be an advocate for simpler, community-approved building codes; enhanced opportunities for bike transit; expanded community gardens; more sensible drug and violence-prevention policies; and local solutions generally.

If you have any questions about my background, resume, platform, or philosophy of government - please feel free to pose them HERE, and I will answer them.  You can also stop by the soon-to-open JP headquarters, located at 767 Centre Street (next to Salmagundi).  Once we get the place cleaned (it was a smoke-filled hair salon for 70 years and looks/smells it), we'll bring in a couch and all will be welcome.

See you around the neighborhood, and please remember to vote in the primary on October 19th!

Sean Ryan
