Russian Jews spur new immigrant voter coalition

Russian Jews spur new immigrant voter coalition
The political clout of Boston’s Russian Jewish community is serving as an inspiration for a new group that aims to unite Boston’s many immigrant communities into a powerful voting block.
This past year's Boston City Council elections provided a glimpse into how responsive political leaders are to the Russian Jewish community, which is concentrated in the Allston-Brighton area of Boston. Every candidate, including Mayor Thomas Menino, held meetings with members of the community, and Allston councilor Jerry McDermott frequently liaises with Bologov and other community leaders.
