ODDS & ENDS: An Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund poll has City Councillor At-Large Connolly up by four points. In the poll released yesterday, Connolly has 40 percent and Walsh has 36 percent. The poll, which also had those that watched the WBZ-Globe debate believing Walsh had won it, was conducted by Sage Systems and has a 3.9 percent margin of error. The rest of the poll, with the environmental views of voters, will be releases on Monday.....Connolly met with experts in gang violence yesterday.....American Working Families, a pro-Walsh independent group, put out an, uh, interesting ad with the Dropkick Murphys yesterday, complete with chair Bud Jackson's visage.
