Hey, the mayoral election is sneaking up on us. Tonight is the first of three debates -- two before the Sept. 22 preliminary election and one after. The four candidates square off at 7 p.m. this evening on WBZ-TV (Channel 4).
Tom Menino, Boston's longest-serving mayor, is being challenged by City Councilors Michael Flaherty and Sam Yoon, and businessman Kevin McCrea. The second debate will be held on Sept. 10 from 5 to 6 p.m. on WFXT (Ch. 25) and the third on Oct. 19 from 7 to 8 p.m. on WGBH (Ch.2). The general election is on Nov. 3.
