Schofield Endorses Ciommo for City Council

Tim Schofield, third-place finisher in Tuesday's preliminary election for Allston-Brighton District 9 City Councilor, has endorsed first-place finisher Mark Ciommo. Harry Mattison has posted the full press release on the Allston Brighton Community Blog.

This move is not unexpected: Schofield's progressive positions on social issues of the day are likely a closer match to Ciommo than to Greg Glennon, the second-place finisher, although this is not exactly certain. Schofield and Ciommo have both pitched themselves as progressive to the online community BlueMassGroup. The endorsement statement, however, makes no note of social issues; instead, Schofield calls Ciommo the "unifying leader that this community needs."
