FAA officials spent 3 1/2 hours listening to residents and elected officials rip into the way planes now fly over a host of communities, at a Milton meeting on Thursday that they agreed to attend only after US Rep. Stephen Lynch threatened to cut the agency's budget for community outreach by $25 million.

The meeting brought out several hundred people from Belmont to Hull, to complain that a new GPS-based flight-path system may be great for airline profits and schedules, but means unlucky residents are now subjected to endless waves of planes, often starting at 5 a.m., for days on end, because of the way it slots planes into very narrow air corridors. Residents also said planes are flying lower than they used to, further contributing to the noise. Read more.

This past week was a big week in politics here in Boston.

1. Steve Lynch will not run for Mayor.

Leading up to this past week, many speculated that 8th Congressional District U.S. Representative Stephen Lynch was using the U.S. Senate race to raise his profile so he could run for Boston Mayor. Lynch's chances were ruined by losing his hometown of Boston by a margin of 31,000 plus votes to Lynch's 28,000 plus votes.

Essentially, Markey "Al Gored" Stephen Lynch. To understand this, Al Gore lost his home state of Tennessee to George W. Bush in 2000 and that was the real reason why Gore lost the presidency not because of Florida. For Lynch to have won the U.S. Senate Democratic Primary, he needed to run up the vote against Markey in Boston and this just did not happen.

2. Dewey beats Truman.

The 1st Suffolk Senate race was an unbelievable contest. My parish, St. Ann's, falls right inside this state Senate district. Three great candidates fought tooth and nail to replace Jack Hart who left his seat for a high paying job at a law firm.

Lynch's sole campaign event that will still take place will be his rally tonight at the Local 7 Iron Workers Hall at 7PM.

Blue Mass. Group takes a look at the contortions that would eliminate the current 9th Congressional District.

Won't anybody think of the Irish? According to the Dorchester Reporter, Steve Lynch urged a legislative redistricting committee not to break up his 9th District because that would mean breaking up the most Irish congressional district in the country.

The 2010 federal census means Massachusetts is losing one of its ten congressional districts.

Democrats hold a get-out-the-vote rally in Roslindale Square at 4 p.m. The kidlet wants to go, but reports that, unlike the last time Deval Patrick came to the Square, she isn't planning to give him a piece of her mind.

Steve Lynch, facing only nominal opposition tomorrow, murmurs he's thinking of running for Senate, again, this time in 2012. And he says liberals better get out of his way.

Ninth District Rep. Steve Lynch and Democratic challenger Mac D'Alessandro discussed everything from the proposed Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan to, of course, health care, in a 20-minute discussion on WGBH's "Greater Boston" tonight (Watch).

D'Alessandro said he supported the rights of a Moslem group to build a cultural center two blocks from Ground Zero: "We have a constitutionally protected right to practice our faith as we see fit, and you know, those rights, those core values mean the most when it's uncomfortable for us to adhere to them," he said.

Channel 2's "Greater Boston" will air a debate between 9th District incumbent Steve Lynch and Democratic challenger Mac D'Alessandro at 7 p.m. tonight (the debate will be taped at 4:30). Greater Boston airs for 30 minutes, so that would make this twice as long as their earlier debate.

We got this flyer from the D'Alessandro campaign yesterday:

Mike Ball was at the Ironworkers Hall in Southie today:

... You'd think the rally was for Clinton and Lynch was brought in to fluff the crowd for him. Lynch praised Clinton's presidency mightily and repeatedly, then Bill took over and did the same. He eventually got back around to saying how important it was to keep Lynch in office. ...

Also, state Rep. Marty Walsh of Dorchester attacked Lynch's primary opponent, Mac D'Alessandro, by making the remarkable claim that Republicans never run against each other. Apparently, Marty hasn't gotten south of the Neponset recently.

The Mac D'Alessandro campaign says it's submitted 4,000 signatures to the secretary of state's office, which should be more than enough to get him on the Democratic primary ballot this fall against Ninth District incumbent Steve Lynch.

Man, he's one of my favorite perennial candidates - how can you not love a guy who crashes his car on the Jamaicaway while calling into WBUR - while denying allegations he was a groper?

Still, who knew that this time he's running for congress in my district, against Steve Lynch? Hey, anybody know what ever happened to Mildred Jefferson?

By adamg - 7/7/06 - 10:22 pm

That would be Phil Dunkelbarger of Westwood, who is running against incumbent U.S. Rep. Steve Lynch largely on an anti-war platform.

How quiet? I live in Lynch's district, and the first I heard Lynch had opposition was this Blue Mass. Group post.
