Auto Show in Boston this Week

It's here again. We shouldn't be surprised because it's mid January, but the New England Auto Show has shown up again at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. For locals who haven't been to the NY Auto Show or the one in Detroit, the one here is adequate. While you won't see a ton of prototypes on the show floor, you will get a chance to see a bunch of new models all together in one place.

Ray Flynn: "We must do more to help the poor..."

Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn starts off 2014 with an editorial in today's Boston Herald about the need to help those who are less fortunate with less money available today. Flynn states:


Boston is not the city it should be. We must begin to turn our attention once again to building strong families and affordable neighborhoods. It’s not too late. We have a city with many caring and concerned citizens. The only thing that stands in our way of being a great city is our political will.

Steve Tompkins registered as a Democrat on April 1, 2013

You know when you are heading for victory when anonymous posters attack and ridicule you. It always out of fear, hatred, and jealousy that these "stalker trolls" attack you when you are on the brink of success and triumph.

My good friend Moe Love obviously does not like the fact that yes I am a former Republican. However, fortunately I am in good company.

RIP Wayne Wilson, Democratic Activist

Wayne Wilson was a good man who passed away on November 15, 2013. Wayne was a resident of Ward 19 in Jamaica Plain and was a hardcore Progressive Democrat who was traveling around his State Senate District visiting the local Democrats in effort to challenge Mike Rush for the Senate seat in the September 9, 2014 Democratic Primary. Wayne was very active in local Democratic politics. I last saw him on November 12, 2013 at the Ward 19 Democrats where he was an active member in Karen Paine's organization.

Moe Love is clear: Bennett to win Sheriff

You know when you are heading for victory when anonymous posters attack and ridicule you. It always out of fear, hatred, and jealousy that these "stalker trolls" attack you when you are on the brink of success and triumph.

My good friend Moe Love obviously does not like the fact that yes I am a former Republican. However, fortunately I am in good company.

My opponent Steve Tompkins, a Press Secretary, registered as a Democrat only this past April 1, 2013 according to the Boston Elections Department. Before that he was a Republican.
