Election roundup: Soggy candidates

Steve Murphy with an umbrella

Steve Murphy was one of the sensible candidates in yesterday's parade.

The Globe gets drenched covering the two mayoral candidates in yesterday's Roslindale parade; doesn't note that both were preceded by Rob Consalvo, staying dry in a trolley bus.

The Herald reports both Walsh and Connolly are running by running away from City Hall and that both camps are concerned voters might get distracted by a Red Sox World Series run.

The Globe takes a look at that arbitration bill Walsh has been pushing for years; not everybody's in favor.

District 5 city-council hopeful Tim McCarthy flings a mean Frisbee.

David Ertischek, who long covered West Roxbury and Roslindale for the Transcript and Patch, is now working on Matt O'Malley's re-election campaign in District 6.

Francisco White, who didn't make the final 8 in the at-large council race, is calling for a confab of minority residents to figure out how to break "wealth-serving policy and decades of sustained, quiet racist-classist ideology at City Hall."

the political hacks, politicians, and hanger-ons could do, considering their generous public sector jobs, perks, contracts. How many people's jobs and influence are reliant on Mr. Murphy and those like him, at election time?

I heard the Boy Scouts are looking for a new Scout Leader. Maybe if Sheriff doesn't pan out you could make a run for it.
