Fluker-Oakley, a Mattapan attorney who officially announced her campaign last week, said she was able to collect signatures while social distancing.
“I am excited to officially be on the ballot,” she said on Monday. “It took a lot of creativity, but I was able to lean on my longstanding roots in the community to collect and submit over 200 signatures while practicing social distancing."
“As state representative,” Fluker-Oakley added, “I will take my experiences – in our schools, our courts, and our community to fight for economic opportunity and small business creation in our neighborhoods, high quality education for our students, criminal justice reform, and equitable access to housing for seniors and families.”
“The outpouring of support from so many neighbors was truly incredible,” she added, “and we have some exciting plans to connect new technology and good old-fashioned campaigning to empower residents on the campaign.”
