Boston Bulletin Editorial: Allston-Brighton City Council Seat is the "Hottest Race"

The Boston Bulletin newspaper published an editorial today about the various Boston City Council races, including Allston-Brighton:
The hottest race, however, may be the District Nine seat up for grabs in Allston-Brighton. The decision last week by City Councilor Jerry McDermott not to seek re-election, led to a last minute flurry of interest among those considering a run. Currently collecting qualifying signatures are Timothy Schofield (who ran unsuccessfully for the seat previously held by Brian Golden), Paul Creighton, Benjamin Bloomenthal, Gregory Glennon, James Joseph Jenner, Allessandro Alex Selvig, Brighton Main Streets Director Rosie Hanlon, Mark Alford and Mark Ciommo.

That so many candidates are already active is no surprise. But what may be surprising is the potential for a re-alignment on the council.
