The 12 candidates vying to succeed longtime Boston Mayor Tom Menino have been narrowed to two.
In November, voters will have a choice between State Representative Marty Walsh and City Councillor John Connolly.
Both are Irish. Both are Democrats.
Well, it could have John Connolly vs. Dan Conley. Connolly vs. Conley. Now that would have been confusing.
When Menino was elected mayor in 1993, he became the city’s first non-Irish mayor since 1930.
Charlotte Golar-Richie, a former senior advisor to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, had actor Louis Gossett, Jr. appear in an ad for her. Although I think it would have been more effective if he had donned a drill sergeant uniform and used a rubber hose.
No matter who Bostonians elect, we will be hosed.
