Is visionary pragmatist a class? Bill Walczak was on today simultaneously expallining his calls for taking Boston to a higher level as mayor and his pulling-rabbits-out-of-hats career. His message is I’ve been there; I’ve done it; I want to do it with the city.
A very youthful sounding 58, he was all about forward movement, despite […]
We got specific today with Rep. Martin J. (Marty) Walsh, candidate for Boston mayor. With 13, maybe even 15, running to succeed Tom Menino, Walsh has the shared problem — differentiating himself.

You can’t say, “No more Mr. Nice Guy,” about John Connolly. The popular at-large Boston City Councilor will always be pleasant and he promised us he’d run an upbeat campaign for Mayor this year. He has a flexible campaign, accounting for Mayor Tom Menino running for a sixth term or facing other Councilors and outsiders […]
