Let me get this straight. If the mayor of Boston leaves office for any reason the city council president serves out his term.
Currently Tom Menino is due for re-election next November if he wants to start another term in January.
This time around there is a much stronger than usual battle for the council presidency that will be voted on the beginning of the year.
Hmmmm, so are these statesman making the case to fellow members for their support counting on Mayor Menino resigning or dying?
My money is on them banking on his death rather than the former. I mean he’s freakin Tom Menino. He ain’t resigning.
The guy just spent a spring trainings worth of time in the hospital and nobody believes he’s even considering kissing the job goodbye before the term ends.
So, what cold hearted a-holes, really.
Hey dudes, I can’t remember the last person taken out of Spaulding Rehab with the sheet over the face. You know what I mean?
The guy’s coming back and he knows what each and everyone of you has been up to. That sucks for you.
Even if the mayor decides not to seek another term you can be sure he will put road blocks in your election possibilities as much he can. After all he will still be the mayor during the election.
BTW, on the same subject, how about the Globe’s Kevin Cullen’s that’s-the-best-you-can-do column today on Suffolk District Attorney Dan “Search and Avoid” Conley? Obviously the Globe’s way of keeping Conley’s name in the mix for mayor as the talk ramps up.
So what did Cullen write about as an example of what a great person/district attorney/public servant Conley is?
The fact that Little Man Dan is not standing in the way of a pardon for two old time gangsters wrongfully convicted of murder because the feds lied to protect the real murderers. They spent years and years in the can for this. They were eventually exonerated.
Cullen’s making Conley look good by just showing up. That’s my point. The best Cullen could find on him.
The guy is a danger in his current capacity. I can go through a list of things I’ve written before on his actions and inactions.
One thing is for sure.Dan has a problem when the judiciary does not do exactly as he and his puppeteers the police want. Little Man Dan temper tantrums.
