The Globe reports on a transportation forum, in which Marty Walsh said 30 m.p.h. is too fast for most Boston streets, John Barros blasted Walsh and Menino for not doing more to get more T funding and John Connolly and Felix Arroyo praised true dedicated bike lanes.
Connolly, Walsh and Charlotte Golar Richie are the leaders in a WBUR poll.
Golar Richie fan Margery Eagan writes Rob Consalvo and Arroyo just lost the election by taking the endorsement of a bunch of "teenage thugs," i.e., the Boston Teachers Union.
Candidates participated in a forum at Boston Latin School the other day. Among the many issues: Chickens being kept illegally in Boston. Golar Richie declared herself against illegal chickens, but said she wouldn't send police out after them. Instead, she called for beefed up animal control services to pluck them out.
The city council yesterday approved a measure by Arroyo to limit city funds to banks that can prove they are investing money in Boston neighborhoods. The proposed ordinance now goes to Menino.
The South End News endorsed Connolly:
His much publicized exposure of the waste in the school lunch program, his clashes with Menino, the Boston public school administration, and the Teachers Union prove that he is an elected official not afraid to shake up the status quo to get things done. And that's exactly the type of leadership Boston needs, and deserves.
The Walsh campaign has gone to the dogs.
