Who are you supporting for mayor?
We're just nine days from the preliminary election for mayor of Boston, and I haven't seen a poll on the race since May. (Have I just missed them?) The three opponents, I would assume, have gained some ground since then, but still it seems as though Tom Menino will get a solid majority in the Sept. 22 prelim. I'm also not going far out on a limb guessing that Michael Flaherty will make the cut over his City Council colleague Sam Yoon and businessman Kevin McCrea.
Today's Globe discusses one of the mayor's big weapons: city employees -- especially the neighborhood liaisons, who are extremely loyal to Menino and who work hard on his behalf.
I haven't completely decided who I'm voting for and I'd be interested in reading people's choices, and rationale, in the comments section. I hope to hear from you.
