The Boston Bastard reminds reporters that it's not just Michael Flaherty and the Incumbents (Ed. note: Would make a good 60s cover band) - there are two other candidates running for one of the four open seats this year.
Andrew Ryan wrote a piece about Michael Flaherty's disappointing fundraising considering his mastery of it in previous races. Ryan also fell into the mold of not acknowledging Ryan and Dorcena, characterizing the race as one in which, "five well-known politicians are competing for four seats. One will lose."
