No Endorsement in the Boston Mayor's Prelim

bostonseal.jpegWe want to thank each of the nine candidates who submitted thoughtful questionnaires seeking our endorsement.   However, our members, like much of the city, remain divided over who the best candidate might be.  No candidate in this race reached the required 60% threshold to secure an endorsement.  We understand this is a high hurdle but a necessary one to avoid divisiveness.  We encourage everyone to continue to learn more about the field - their experience, their views, their plans for the City.
