David Halbert is hoping the second time is a charm, as he's running for an at-large seat on the Boston City Council for the second time. “Boston is an incredible city full of opportunity and possibility – but sadly also rampant inequality,” said Halbert. “Whether we are talking about housing, education, job opportunities, experiences with law-enforcement, among other critical issues facing Bostonians every day, Boston is not the same for every resident. I am running for City Council to work every day to provide the leadership, representation, and voice needed to ensure that Boston is a city that works for all, whether your Boston story stretches back generations or is just starting its first chapter.”
Halbert ran in the last election cycle for the Boston City Council in 2019. In the preliminary election he finished eighth to advance to the primary election, and finished eighth in the November general election.
