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.

Outside of the skateboarders totally loving the bridge and the stone work, I was kind of surprised how nice it actually is.
