InfoMichael F. Flaherty has been a member of the Boston City Council since January of 2000. A lifelong resident of South Boston, Michael lives there with his wife Laurene (Farrell), sons Patrick and Michael, and twins Elizabeth and Jack. He is the son of Peg (McGlone) Flaherty and the Honorable Michael F. Flaherty, Sr., an associate justice of the Boston Municipal Court and former State Representative.

After graduating Boston College High School, Michael went to work for Airborne Express Company, a job that brought with it membership in Teamsters Local Union #25. Michael held his union card for the next eight years, developing an abiding appreciation for the benefits of organized labor to the lives of working families in Boston and across the state.

Michael worked his way through Boston College and then Boston University School of Law. After earning his law degree, Michael went to work in the Office of Suffolk County District Attorney, serving two years as an assistant district attorney in East Boston, Charlestown and Roxbury district courts. Michael left the District Attorney’s office in 1998 and is currently a partner at the law firm Adler Pollock & Sheehan in Boston.

In November of 1999, Michael was elected to the City Council as an At-Large member and was re-elected in 2001, 2003 and 2005. Additionally, Michael has consistently been elected by a super majority of his colleagues to serve as Council President since 2002 with the most recent election in 2006. As Council President he is committed to working cooperatively with his district and at-large colleagues, as well as Mayor Menino and his administration, on the critical issues facing the City of Boston.

As a proud Bostonian, Michael is committed to ensuring Boston continues to be a place we can all live, work and raise a family.
