Boston Globe Endorses Schofield for A-B District City Councilor

The Boston Globe editorial page today announced their endorsement of Tim Schofield for the Allston-Brighton District 9 City Council seat. The editorial noted his "combination of legal acumen and commitment to the community," and thought his "zoning experience and knowledge of settlement agreements would be a clear win for the neighborhood" when confronting institutional expansion issues.

I am not suprised with the announcement -- which I had privately predicted -- because I think that Schofield's background and temperament match those of candidates historically endorsed by the Globe. Watch for the Allston-Brighton TAB to come out with their own endorsement in this Friday's edition -- they recently had the candidates over for a forum, and had a reporter at Monday's forum.

Audio Recording of 9/17 A-B City Council Candidates Forum Posted

The audio recording from the one-and-one-half hour forum was put up last night on the "Election 2007 Coverage" near the top of the Brighton Centered Blog under "9/17 NEW audio recording" (mp3 format; 31 MB so it takes a while to download). For those using RSS readers or aggregators, you may have to follow this link to load the full webpage in a browser. Many thanks to Harry Mattison for webhosting of the audio recording on his HarvardInAllston website.
