International Association of Fire Fighters, Local 718, today formally endorsed Councilor Annissa Essaibi George in her bid to become mayor. In a statement, local President John Soares said:
Since her early days on the Boston City Council, she has demonstrated her unwavering commitment and support for Boston’s first responders. From showing up at our firehouses with coffee, to picking up the phone to check in on our brave men and women, to advocating for investments in our health and safety, she has our backs and we have unanimously voted to have hers in this race.
The New York Times takes note of the Markyverse, the teens who worked to re-elect Ed Markey and who have now turned their enthusiasm towards Councilor Michelle Wu in her race for mayor.
WBUR reports state Rep. Jon Santiago is looking to the city's Latino population to put him over the top in the race for mayor.
Politico reports nobody among the Democratic politicorati wants to touch the radioactive controversy involving how Dennis White became, even if briefly, Boston police commissioner.
Well, nobody but Rachael Rollins, of course, who told WGBH that William Gross's affidavit trumps Walsh's denial over what he knew when, because talk is cheap, but lying in a sworn affidavit would bring potential criminal penalties.
