WHERE THEY ARE: The candidates’ schedules – 8/4/09 (Party at Red Hat!)

Everyone's partying at the zoo to celebrate community watch programs, but only Sam Yoon is headed to Beacon Hill bar Red Hat after. Then it looks like he's going back to the zoo for Gospel. Mike Flaherty is holding a blogger lunch get-together tomorrow, and you can be sure that at least one of your friendly neighborhood litdroppers will be there, monitoring how many blogger-hacks accept the candidate's food and refreshments.  Read more

NECN interviews all four candidates

We know who Kevin McCrea is

Take it as a sign that the campaign in shifting into mainstream mode, where regular folks turn their attention to the names they’ll be faced with on the Sept. 22 ballot: WBUR listeners got a reprieve from pledge drives, comments from members of the healthcare committees and the enormously successful discussion on race relations in the US to get an earful of mayoral candidate Kevin McCrea.  Read more

ALLSTON-BRIGHTON TAB meets the candidates

The Allston-Brighton TAB newspaper takes a look at the 5-man (Feegbeh '09!) race for mayor. Aside from the dateline, at no point do the words "Allston" or "Brighton" appear in the piece, so don't expect much of a local angle.

Flaherty wants to be Mayor so bad, he'll take a $44k pay cut

Don't be surprised if you notice City Councillor Michael Flaherty brown-bagging it for lunch if he becomes mayor. The Globe reports today that Flaherty, who is saddled with over $900,000 in mortgage debt, would lose the $130,000 he earns annually by serving as a partner at a Boston law firm if he's elected mayor. Losing that income might make those mortgage payments a little more difficult to keep up with.  Read more
