Globe columnist Yvonne Abraham wrote today about Boston City Councilor Charles Yancey running for both mayor and re-election to his city council seat. The parallels to what Alderman Ted Hess-Mahan is doing as he pursues both his Ward 3 alderman at-large seat and the mayor’s job are very interesting.
Here’s an excerpt:
Yancey, who has three challengers, bristles at the suggestion that his run isn’t genuine. He says he’s just as serious as the other guys.
“I don’t like to see my candidacy for mayor trivialized,” he said. “I love the city and believe I have something to offer.”
