Boston City Councillor Liz Breadon joined a group of her colleagues to raise the flag or Ireland at Boston City Hall last week. A native of Northern Ireland, Breadon emigrated to Boston in 1995 and has held positions at Boston Medical Center, The Home for Little Wanderers, and Perkins School for the Blind.
She has a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Simmons University. Prior to her election to the Boston City Council, she ran a homeopathy business from 2011 to 2020, where she claimed to be board certified in Classical Homeopathy, a pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine. After coming in second in a seven-way primary to fill the District 9 seat of retiring incumbent Mark Ciommo, Breadon won the 2019 general municipal election with 58.5% of the vote.
