I am really enjoying the brand new “one-stop portal for all the news you need on the 2009 Boston elections” from the Dorchester Reporter, my adopted* hometown paper.
And it's not just for Dot Rats! This came in this morning from the Lit Drop.

Wondering where you can meet your favorite mayoral candidate? Agendas are provided by the Menino, Flaherty, Yoon and McCrea campaigns and laboriously pasted here by Lit Drop staff. Please note that plans can change on the campaign trail at a moment’s notice, but we do our best to keep it up to date:
MAYOR THOMAS MENINO:

Boston University’s Marsh Plaza, 735 Commonwealth Avenue
(Rain location: The Backcourt, BU’s George Sherman Union, 775 Commonwealth Avenue)
Mayor Menino and Police Commissioner Davis will kick off the second year of the MLK Summer Scholars Program, a summer jobs collaborative that will serve more than 600 teens this year.
COUNCILOR MICHAEL FLAHERY:
11-3pm: Council Meeting, City Hall
10:30am – 11:30am Interview with El Planeta

Sam will be in his City Hall office on Wednesday, first spending time on constituent calls, and then going to the Council Chambers for the City Council meeting
*Because I do not qualify for the “Originally from Dorchester” bumper sticker that so many deserters living on the south shore and the cape have on their cars, I'm trying to raise some dough to print some “Dot Rats:still loving and living in Dorchester” shirts for us to wear on our great city beaches.
