Linehan won't seek re-election as city councilor

The Globe reports that Bill Linehan won't seek a seventh term as city councilor in District 2, which covers South Boston, the South End, Chinatown and Downtown.

Frank Ulip, who lives downtown and Peter Lin-Marcus, who lives in Chinatown, have both signaled their interest in running for the seat this fall by forming political committees. However, Linehan's announcement could also lead to a flood of candidates from South Boston.

who was extra adamant about the council getting pay raises. If so, he was kind of a prick about it, saying smugly "This issue isn't going away." Well, at least HE's going away. If they cared a little bit more about people other than themselves we'd all be better off.

Of course, recent antics by our state legislature makes the council raise look like chicken feed.

But he at least gave reasons (councilors hadn't gotten a raise in X years ...), unlike Steve Murphy, who used the whole thing to rant about stupid people too dumb to understand the importance of the August Majesty of Boston city councilors and Globe editorial writers from out of town and how he'll show them dagnabitt!

Michael Flaherty should run for District because he keeps taking steps backwards. I do not know where it all went wrong for that guy. Maybe because of his former Campaign Manager Jon Romano, maybe it was because he didn't want anything to do with becoming Deval Patrick's Lt. Governor or maybe it was him running against Mayor Menino.
