Globe, Herald editorials back O'Toole

Editorials in the Boston Globe and Herald on Tuesday back District 3 candidate John O'Toole for the City Council seat.

"He makes a convincing case that his volunteer activities, focusing on neighborhood stability, have served as an effective training ground for the District 3 City Council seat," the Globe editorial said, citing a thick civic resume.

The Herald, in its own editorial, said O'Toole would be a "seamless fit for the Council."

District 3 rival Frank Baker received the backing of the Boston Phoenix in an editorial last week.

The Herald also endorsed incumbent Bill Linehan over former principal Suzanne Lee in District 2, and incumbent Tito Jackson over Fenway's Sheneal Parker in District 7.
