Globe passes on an A/B endorsement

The Globe endorses Carlos “Tony’’ Henriquez who is running against incumbent Chuck Turner to represent Roxbury, and parts of the Fenway, South End, and Dorchester. But despite the vigorous 4-way race in A/B it garners not even a mention in this editorial.


  1. The Globe did not endorse a council candidate for A/B. The four candidates for mayor blitzed the city. Not one of them came to Allston or Brighton.

  2. @JohnT: All four candidates for Mayor were in Allston-Brighton on Sunday; three marched in the parade. All debated at WBZ with swarms of supporters. Many other events by candidates, just don't necessarily make the news.

    @Harry: the Globe obliquely referred to the A-B District 9 race when they said that the other races had no or only "nominal" opposition. After hearing the two candidates forums last week, I think that "nominal" opposition is a mis-characterization.

  3. Michael, Yesterday is traditionaly the day spent in areas where voter turnout is large. That is why they did not bother with Allston or Brighton.
