Boston Magazine’s redoubtable David Bernstein might rank former state representative Charlotte Golar Richie #2 in his list of Boston mayoral hopefuls, and the Boston Globe might report big names coalescing around her campaign, but that still doesn’t give her any cred at ABC News.
In today’s edition of The Note, reporter Michael Falcone notes Los Angeles mayoral hopeful Wendy Greuel’s loss this week to City Councilman Eric Garcetti, but says “The Year of the Woman Mayor” declared by liberal activist group Emily’s List could still come to pass.
Although Los Angeles was a top prize for Emily’s List, it is not the biggest. That distinction belongs to New York City where City Council Speaker Christine Quinn leads a crowded field of Democratic mayoral contenders, which now includes former Rep. Anthony Weiner. And other women leaders are running in mayoral races in large cities around the country — in Houston, Minneapolis, Seattle, Dayton, Syracuse, Albany, Long Beach and Tulsa — to name a few.
Albany? Tulsa?? But no Boston?
Hey, Mr. Falcone – give us a call. Better yet, give David Bernstein a call. He can get this sorted in no time.
