WHERE THEY ARE: The candidates' schedules

Wondering where you can meet your favorite mayoral candidate? Want to high-five Sam Yoon? Collect Flaherty campaign handouts? The Lit Drop is now posting the public schedules of each candidate for mayor on a weekly basis. The agendas are provided by the Menino, Flaherty, Yoon and McCrea campaigns and laboriously pasted here by Lit Drop staff. There will be some editing for relevance. We here at the Dorchester Reporter can’t guarantee the accuracy of the schedules, since plans change on the campaign trail at a moment’s notice, but we’ll do our best to keep it up to date. And without further ado, WHERE THEY ARE:
