  1. It’s too bad most residents couldn’t care less about local politics. And by most I mean the under 35 crowd.

  2. If Southie gets behind Nick Collins like we should then we’ll take back the senate seat from Dorchester. Southie needs more political power to stave off the insane development planned for Dorchester Avenue. Collins would have beaten Forry if but for a small splinter vote in Southie Have we learned our lesson? Time to lay the foundation to return Southie to the height of political power. The real question will be who succeeds Nick as state rep in Southie. Become politically active. Stevie Lynch can’t do all the political heavy lifting for Southie by himself!

    • We need more power to stave off more housing? Why exactly are we trying to stop more housing? My vote solely hinges on housing, because it is by far the #1 issue we have.

      Also, if any candidate wants to outlaw unions I’ll vote for you too.

  3. Dear Numb Brains, we don’t need more housing in Southie, we need more affordable housing in Southie. Dot Ave has already been approved for a major hotel. Not helpful for the looming affordable housing crisis in the town. The proposed Rehab of the Old Harbor projects is a major step forward. Southie needs work force housing or the middle class will be forced out. Nick Collins is a huge advocate of affordable housing. A neighborhood of the haves and the have nots is a formula for disaster long term.
