WHERE THEY ARE: The candidates' schedules - 10/26/2009

Earlier this morning, City Councillors At-Large Michael Flaherty and Sam Yoon held a presser outside of City Ha-- Actually, it was outside the Brighton Mills Shopping Center. Team Floon is protesting whiny emails from Boston Redevelopment Authority officials who are managing a housing project in the area. Community members obtained the emails through a public records law request. (What a pesky, terrible, awful, no-good law.) Meanwhile Mayor Thomas Menino celebrates the grand opening of the Boston Buying Power Office and attends the expansion of advanced placement classes in Boston Public Schools.
