Natalia Rudiak Campaign Kick Off (With Sound!)

Posted By on Fri, Jan 30, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Natalia Rudiak launched her campaign last night, in a Brookline Boulevard headquarters housed in an old consignment shop.

The crowd numbered about 75, and it was a heady mix of earnest East End types and neighborhood stalwarts. As I've said previously, that may well set the tone for Rudiak's campaign: Her campaign manager and some of the volunteers hailed from the city's eastern precincts, for example, but the room was scattered with local committeefolk as well (not to mention District 3 city councilor Bruce Kraus.)

Your intrepid CP correspondent was on-hand, and recorded portions of Rudiak's speech, excerpts of which can be heard by clicking the links below. 

During her speech's call to arms, Rudiak sketched out a vision for the district's needs. She took a bit of a slap at the city's current governance, promising increased transparency and better fiscal management. But notably, she also promised to be a "bridgebuilder", who would work with anyone willing to help district 4.

Rudiak's speech delved into her biography as well: She talked about her Polish immigrant mother and her public-employee father -- who was a union officer to boot. It's also worth noting that the candidate was wearing a black skirt and gold blazer over a Troy Polamalu jersey. 

She doesn't miss much, Natalia Rudiak.
