The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance website lists campaign finance reports for candidates and potential candidates for State office. Greg Glennon and Tim Schofield, two of the candidates for City Council to represent Allston & Brighton were recently considering runing for State Representative against Mike Moran.
Making laws at the State House is very different than being a City Councilor at City Hall. Allston & Brighton need a City Councilor who really wants to be City Councilor, so hopefully these two repeat candidates will present a clear explination of their sincere interest in City Council and why that is where they belong instead of at the State House.
2006 Year-end reports by the Committee to Elect Greg Glennon and the Committee to Elect Tim Schofield can be viewed by going to https://www.efs2.cpf.state.ma.us/EFSprod/servlet/WelcomeServlet, selecting "View Reports", then "Candidates", then entering the last name. For some reason the way this website is built the links directly to these reports don't work.
