Ayana Pressley

Boston City Council member Ayanna Pressley beat a field of 15 candidates to win one of four at-large spots. She is the first woman of color to serve on the council in its 100-year history. Pressley capitalized on that win to form a new Committee on Women & Healthy Communities to help stabilize families and combat poverty.
