Boston Bulletin: Interview with Outgoing Councilor McDermott

The Boston Bulletin ran an extended interview yesterday with outgoing Allston-Brighton City Councilor Jerry McDermott.

He gave a description of life as a City Councilor:
"For the past five years, it has been get up, shower, shave, go to City Hall, get out, go to meetings and, by the time I get home, everyone is already in bed," he said.
Anybody still want to run?

He continues:
"God knows, I’ve fought the battles. I’m not going to say I’m punch drunk, but I am a man who feels his adrenalin... I took my punches, but I’m leaving on a high note."
