Last Wednesday after eleven and a half years as District 1 City Council, and a 30-year career as a public servant for the City of Boston, Councilor Sal LaMattina addressed his colleagues in the Council Chambers for the last time. In a stellar career that spanned three mayoral administrations LaMattina, in his last City Council meeting before leaving office, reflected on his time in office.

“Where do I begin,” LaMattina started. “When i was thinking about my last meeting and my last speech in this Chamber I was thinking of how lucky I’ve been for the last 30 years and how lucky we are as Boston City Councilors to represent this great city. I am so thankful to this city where my Italian Immigrant (family) came in the early 1900s and lived in the North End and East Boston. I am so thankful to be able to live in this city with my wife, Lisa and raise our beautiful daughter, Liana.”
