managed to do to Southie in one election what the realtors and developers have been trying for years.
Maude has tried selling used underwear on Broadway, starts a blog about Southie for the Yuppies, and now tries a run for State Senate.

the head table because she is going to plan it and run it for Linda. But, alas, it will be moving to the IBEW or Florian Hall in DORCHESTER!
