City Council At-Large Candidates Talk Broad Issues, Question Amazon in Boston

Yes, there are other election races this Fall besides the well-covered District 1 and District 2 City Council contests. On Tuesday night in Roslindale, the eight candidates for the four At-Large City Council seats sat down together in a forum. Incumbents Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, Michael Flaherty and Annissa Essaibi-George joined with newcomers William King, Domingos DaRosa, Althea Garrison and Pat Payaso (the clown).
