Mayor Warren endorses Gail Spector for School Committee

During his eight years in office, Mayor Setti Warren has rarely endorsed local candidates. And, I’ve been looking, but I don’t think he has endorsed in anyone in this fall’s contests so far…at least until this just came in from Gail Spector’s camaign for School Committee. ..

So as you’re cheering on Tom know that after the game he’ll return to his Chestnut Hill estate to gallivant about in his red “Make America Great Again” hat.

How can I support a business that’s uncompromising in its policies about pain relief while its employees develop devastating addictions?

Does the Trump/Brady/Belichick/Kraft connection, Gail’s concerns or any other factor change how you feel about this Sunday’s game?
