Online Video of the Candidates Forum for District 9 City Councilor

Galen Mook took video of Thursday night's candidates forum for the District 9 City Councilor race, and has now posted it to vimeo in two parts.

I would like to thank Galen for taking the initiative by volunteering to take the video and put it online. Contributions like his are valuable additions to the civic discourse in our city by providing voters, who might not have been able to make the event, the information on the candidates so that they can make an informed choice at next Tuesday's election.

I will, of course, try to twist Galen's arm again to take video of our next candidates forum in Allston-Brighton, which is tentatively set for Wednesday, October 14th with the eight remaining candidates for City Councilor-At-Large.
