BOSTON, MA – On Tuesday, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 103 endorsed Revere City Councilor At-Large Jessica Giannino for State Representative, 16th Suffolk District. Giannino officially claimed a spot on the September 1st ballot after submitting the required certified signatures to the Secretary of State’s office last month.
“Jessica has strong community values and deep roots in public service, which she has proved through her work on the Revere City Council,” said Louis Antonellis, Local 103 Business Manager. “Local 103 IBEW is proud to endorse Jessica’s campaign for State Representative, and looks forward to her bringing the same level of determination and preparedness to Beacon Hill.”
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 103, located in Dorchester, represents Electricians and Technicians in the Greater Boston Area. IBEW’s mission is to provide Greater Boston's developers with the best trained, most efficient, safest electricians and telecommunications specialists, while fostering the Union's values of economic fairness, equal opportunity and charitable giving in the communities they work, live and raise families in.
“Having Local 103 in my corner means a lot, coming from a family full of dedicated public servants and union members,” said Giannino. “I’m running a volunteer-heavy, boots-to-the-ground style campaign. We will work tirelessly to reach as many voters as possible before the September primary and I’m so thankful to Local 103 for their support of my campaign.”
Jessica began her career in politics as a City Councilor At-Large for the City of Revere in 2012. In that time, she has worked on countless issues that impact the daily lives of the citizens of Revere, as well as ordinances that will impact generations to follow. In 2013 her inclusive style and strong leadership qualities prompted her colleagues to elect her Vice President of the Council. In 2016 and 2018, Jessica had the honor of serving as City Council President. During that time, she worked to ensure the agenda maintained a balance between protecting and growing the city’s economic base, without compromising the quality of city services to residents. Jessica believes it is her responsibility to ensure that Revere’s government is accountable to the people, financially responsible and forward thinking.
