John Connolly, or, at least, his sign, towers over other candidates at the Holy Name School in West Roxbury.
Around 8 this morning, the school, which houses a polling station with one of the highest turnouts in the city, was a beehive of activity. There were few voters, but plenty of politicians (and a Fox 25 news crew), all of them ignoring that quaint law requiring them to stand, oh, 75 or 150 feet away from the entrance to the polling place. Incumbent at-large Councilor Steve Murphy and wannabe at-large Councilor Matt O'Malley bracketed the stairs to the entrance (O'Malley even introduced himself to voters exiting the polls).
Murphy anxiously awaits the next voter:
What would an election-day hotspot be without a visit from Hizzoner?
