One reason is that people don’t trust politicians. And people don’t like the choices. — Sadika Edwards, Construction Worker, Roxbury
The councilors really don’t do anything for the city. — Kimberley Greene, RMV Supervisor, Dorchester
I think the City Council doesn’t have enough power. They don’t control the city budget and policies that directly affect the quality of life in our communities. — Kalila Barnett, Executive Director, Roslindale
People just don’t take it seriously. You have power if you vote. You don’t have it if you don’t use it. — Clinton Peters, Jr., Retired, Boston
