Andrew Kenneally, candidate for at-large Boston City Council, has announced that he's been endorsed by AFSCME Council 93. That's not one of the super-biggies, but it's a good one.
Because so many of the at-large candidates are essentially unknown to Bostonians, endorsements figure to be an important part of the process of breaking through -- especially endorsements that mean boots on the streets. (Somebody's got to go get those 1500 signatures, you know.)
Felix G. Arroyo claims two: SEIU 615, where he used to be political director; and UFCW 1445.
By the way, Kenneally is also doing well in the Facebook fans rankings; he's on the verge of passing 1000 members in his official Facebook Group as I write this. Arroyo is at 722. Ayanna Pressley, just a few days after announcing, has 385 fans on her Facebook page
