Have you heard anyone say “No comment” when debating? Well, if you saw the mayoral debate tonight you will.
I recommend watching the first 7 minutes of Part 3 from WBZ’s page
Marty Walsh dancing in circles when talking about the repeated bills he filed for binding arbitration awards. Walsh never really answers the question, never explaining his position. Walsh’s detailed rebuttal?
“Actually, that’s not what the bill did”
And that’s it.
Walsh painfully tries to counter that Connolly was not at the negotiation for the Boston Housing Authority contract, not sure how that was supposed to be a counter, but Connolly tactfully explains that he’s not allowed at the bargaining table by law. I guess you learn something new every day.
After multiple failed attempts to have Walsh discuss his binding arbitration bill Connolly says:
“I’m just concerned that when your campaign is taking over a million dollars in outside money and when you also work in two roles for these unions — that will influence what you do when you’re mayor,” Connolly said. “And we’ve seen that it certainly influences the legislation that you file.”
Walsh responds: “No Comment”.
It was a complete train wreck for Walsh.
