Both good candidates with a strong voter base. No elected official should win in a landslide - they all need to work for our vote - and this election proved this.

I received a call from American Working Families asking if I was supporting Marty Walsh. Before answering the question, I asked her if she could name three neighborhoods of Boston. She had no idea. more »

John Connolly has received endorsements from the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Bay State Banner, Boston Courant, Bay Windows, BostInno. These are varied news outlets with a wide and varied readership. more »

Marty's campaign should get Sally Field to make an appearance as Norma Rae and stand on the platform with him with her famous cardboard with the hand scribbled words "UNION" on it. It brought Sally t more »

It is a shame that this election has turned so negative. Both are decent candidates who have done well. Both really never spent "hard" years in the careers they have chosen to portray to the public. more »

A union president as mayor is not good business practice.
Posted 10/29/2013 08:21:42 EDT
A union president should not be mayor of Boston.

Archimedes, you are correct. Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it. The unions in Detroit sued the city in attempt to stop it from declaring bankruptcy. Sometimes, the well does run more »

A mayor with strong union ties is bad for Boston.
Posted 10/28/2013 11:37:30 EDT
Marty Walsh's union ties will bankrupt the city. He is not the answer, but the problem.
Posted 10/26/2013 11:29:11 EDT
Well said. Outside unions do not care about issues facing Boston such as education or crime. Unions breathe corruption and history has proven this many times over. Unions have sued the city of Detro more »

Detroit unions sued the city to prevent it from declaring bankruptcy. Clearly, the well does run dry.

Murray is a 36-year resident of Plymouth and should stay out of Boston politics. Another politician who feels she has to say something to the citizens of Boston since we can not make our own decision more »

Barros, Arroyo, and Golar-Richie jumped on the Marty bandwagon since they can see themselves running against him in 4 years whereas Connolly, who is not in the pocket of the unions, may end doing a be more »

Unions don't care about Boston citizens. Why vote for candidate Walsh who favors unions over taxpayers. Taxpayers are the ones who finance this city; not the unions. How many donations have the union more »

I nominate Councilor Ayanna Pressley for the prestigious John F Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. NOT I voted for John and Ayanna for councilors-at-large because I thought they made a great team. Th more »

I have been reading about both candidates for several weeks. Initially undecided, I vacillated between the two candidates since each have their own strengths and weaknesses. What I find appalling is more »

Caroline has the grace of her mother, Jackie.
She will serve our country well.

The unions have unlimited cash and are now buying politicians and our elections. A $15,000 donation from the US Steelworkers based in Pittsburgh PA beats the $25 you can get from an individual taxpaye more »

In the last election, Rep Dave Rogers who represent Arlington, Cambridge, and Belmont lost every precinct in the town of Belmont. He is also received the full endorsement of SEIU so it is pretty clear more »

Rep Walshâs proposed legislation undermines local government by taking away the city's control over significant parts of its local budgets. This is a fact and in tonight's debate, he danced around more »

How can Marty Walsh make promises (although very well intentioned) to Charlotte Golar-Richie about creating more diversity in top positions in city government when he needs to follow contractual union more »

Another union flush with cash supporting Marty Walsh .... groundbreaking news. Everyone talks about Marty Walsh knowing the troubles of the working class. I don't know why his 150K part time union s more »

I voted for Charlotte; but certainly not voting for Marty.
Posted 10/11/2013 11:56:52 EDT
This is unfortunate. Her endorsement is not about the community, but about what she can get out of Walsh as mayor. She is simply looking out for herself. I hope citizens of Boston will not swayed b more »
