The election to replace Boston City Councilor John Tobin (who left earlier this year to take a job at Northeastern) is tomorrow, Tuesday November 16th.
Matt O’Malley, who won the preliminary with 53%, is facing Jim Hennigan, who came in second. O’Malley has run for council a couple of times recently; Hennigan’s sister Maura was a city councilor (and ran for Mayor).
The district covers the western portion of Boston starting at Mission Hill, through JP and part of Roslindale, through West Roxbury (the blue area on this map [PDF]).
Any thoughts on these candidates, or the makeup of the city council and what effects this election might have on it?
