Third Boston city councilor not running for re-election reports Councilor Sal LaMattina (North End, Charlestown, East Boston) won't run for re-election this fall. The East Boston Times-Free Press, which broke the story, has more.

LaMattina, first elected in a special election in 2006, joins Bill Linehan (South Boston, South End, Downtown, Chinatown) and Tito Jackson (Roxbury) in the retirement club - although Jackson hopes to move to get elected mayor instead.

Thank you, Councilor

Thank you for your 11-years of work on the council.

Unrelated but can you guys (and gals) announce prior to a year before the election so I can carpet-bag in and run?

Super. Now maybe we can find someone who's not a supporter of racial segregation in schools and doesn't reply to constituents with dismissive Christian platitudes instead of thought and care. Good riddance.

Let me be first to congratulate you!

This is your big chance, then!

Where should I send my contribution to your campaign account? What? You don't have one? You're not running? You don't even live in Boston? Got it.

Anyone have any idea who might be running (wink, wink)?
