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."
