Herald: Flaherty cancels talent show appearance over lack of Yoon

Last time we checked, City Councillor At-Large Sam Yoon is still an elected official. But the organizers of the candidates' talent show tonight say he isn't a candidate for re-election, and therefore he cannot take the stage with fellow City Councillor At-Large Michael Flaherty, who is vying to unseat Mayor Thomas Menino. (Flaherty and Yoon, who were scheduled to make an appearance, are now pulling out, according to the Herald.) "You have to be a candidate and it’s only for the candidates, and the ones that just lost, I’m sorry, but you are not part of the show,” Jay Paget, producer of the event told the Herald. “Sam was a candidate but he isn’t now."
