#BosMayor Round-Up: Oct. 16, 2013
20 days to Nov. 5. State Rep. Marty Walsh will receive the endorsement of state Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry and Jeffrey Brown in Mattapan Square this morning. City Councillor At-Large John Connolly is holding a press conference on a proposal for a law enforcement career pathway in Roxbury.
ABOUT LAST NIGHT: The Globe headline -- "Walsh, Connolly fail to distinguish themselves." The Herald headline: "Gloves stay on in punchless debate." Jon Keller, who moderated the WBZ/Globe debate, offered this take: "[F]or the most part, the debate was a showcase for two men basically agreeing on a way forward for the city, one where old, lingering barriers – between private and public sectors, between unions and management, and among neighborhood enclaves – are torn down in favor of collaboration and community-building."
