Annissa Essaibi George gets interviewed by boston.com, and like Marty Walsh, who also grew up in Savin Hill, acknowledges she just doesn't take the T. Also, the idea of making the T free, outside of maybe a couple of bus line in poor neighborhoods, is silly, she says, without naming the idea's two proponents - her competitors Michelle Wu and Kim Janey, both of whom are, or at least were in the Before Times, frequent T riders.
She tackles other MBTA and citywide issues, as well as the question of why she isn't consistent with whether there's a hyphen in her last name or not (this year, she's going unhyphenated).
Speaking of Walsh and Janey, the Dorchester Reporter writes Janey's trying to re-assemble that old Walsh coalition that propelled him from being a state rep little known outside of Dorchester to mayor.
WBUR looks at how the candidates would address Boston's infamous racial wealth gap.
Enough of these forums where each candidate gets to speak in turn. WBUR, the Globe, WCVB and UMass Boston will hold an old-fashioned debate at WBUR's arena, um, auditorium, at its Comm. Ave. studios.
If you decide to get lunch at the Bon Me truck at Dewey Square tomorrow, around, say, 1:30 p.m., yes, that will be Wu serving up your sandwich or rice bowl. Wu, who, as a Menino "fellow" way back in 2010, began the work to get food trucks to Boston, says her time behind the counter will show her support for small businesses.
Still haven't decided which of the 17 at-large City Council candidates to vote for? There'll be a meet-n-great for them between 1 and 2:30 p.m. at Brighton Marine, 77 Warren St. in Brighton. It's outdoors, but masks are encouraged.
You get to vote for up to four of them. Incumbents Michael Flaherty and Julia Mejia are running again; the other two at-large councilors - Essaibi George and Wu - are trying to move offices to the other side of City Hall.
