Boston City Councilor Michael Flaherty (at large) announced today he won't join the race for the DA's seat Dan Conley is giving up:
While I have long been interested in the DA’s position, and greatly enjoyed my time spent as a prosecutor, I will always put my home life ahead of career interests. We have been working through a family medical matter and, while the prognosis is good, my full attention is on what is most important to me, my family. Now is not the right time for me to take on the immense obligations of a countywide campaign.
Flaherty once served as an assistant district attorney.
