People in Roslindale and Jamaica Plain report getting post cards from out-of-staters letting them know that whether or not they vote is a matter of public record and, of course, implying that somebody is keeping track. Nothing creepy at all about that, even if it is true one's record of going to the polls (or sending in a ballot) is public.
The Daily Free Press summarizes last night's debate between Annissa Essaibi George and Michelle Wu, in which Essaibi George all but said some Wu is a puppet controlled by some creepy right-wing rich guy from Colorado because the college roommate with whom Wu bought a house (the one she lives in in Roslindale) is Creepy Guy's daughter.
Another debate for the two is at 4 p.m. next Wednesday, an online one sponsored by Boston affordable-housing providers. Free registration required.
In addition to voting for mayor and city councilors, voters will also get to decide Question 1, which would give the council more of a say in the writing of the city's budget. Vote yes | Vote no.
