sam yoon officially announces candidacy for mayor

Today, Boston City Councilor announced his candidacy for Mayor. We already knew it was happening. I guess today was the official, formal, make-no-mistake-this-is-really-happening announcement. Here's the email I received from The Committee to Elect Sam Yoon:
Dear Friends,

Today, I am formally announcing my candidacy to be the next mayor of Boston.

With all the challenges we face, our city needs a new vision – to grow our economy, keep our streets safe, improve education, and make city services more accessible. Watch the following announcement video on my thoughts about this race: Sam Yoon Announcement for Mayor.

We're going to wage this campaign from the bottom-up, reaching out to the citizens of Boston and asking them to take action, tell their friends, organize their community, and bring change to our city government. It will be all of us — coming together at the grassroots — that will make this campaign a success.

So, today, I ask that you take a first important step. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors about our candidacy:

We have a lot to talk about and I look forward to hearing your input on how we can make Boston a better place for all of us.

Thank you,

Sam Yoon
