No Surprise on This Media Endorsement for Schofield in City Council Race

Bay Windows, the LGBT paper of record in the area, has published an Editorial endorsing Tim Schofield for the Allston-Brighton Distrinct 9 City Council race. No surprise there, since Schofield is openly gay and was actively involved with the movement to defeat the proposed Amendment to the State Constitution banning gay marriage. The only real news is that five of six candidates in an historically Irish Catholic -- which now contains many conservative Russian Jewish immigrants -- are currently vocal in their strong support of marriage equality. It is nonetheless a sign that Schofield is holding the progressive vote despite Mark Ciommo's and Alex Selvig's attempts at inroads.
