Some important, though largely below-radar, elections are happening on Tuesday. In East Boston, four candidates are competing in the Democratic primary for the 1st Suffolk state rep seat. (There are no Republicans running for the seat, though Basile comes close.) We’ve endorsed Gloribell Mota, and her campaign could really use your help on election day. Just call them up (617-567-9200), or head over to their election headquarters at 20 Meridian St., 4th floor, right near the Maverick T stop.
Also on Tuesday, there’s a preliminary election for the District 7 and District 9 seats on the Boston City Council (there is no at-large preliminary election this year). Tim Schofield is running for the District 9 seat, and we hope you’ll support him if you’re in his district. Tim’s an old friend on BMG — I believe he’s the first candidate we endorsed for anything, when he ran for the Allston-Brighton state rep seat now held by Mike Moran. He’s a solid progressive and would be an excellent addition to the City Council.
Anything else going on?
