The highly competitive mayoral race is already sparking long overdue discussions on many City issues. One of the best benefits is simply hearing from leaders of neighborhoods that don’t often share their experiences.
In this issue of the Gazette, you’ll hear from candidates who are important leaders in Dudley Square and Dorchester. Whether one or neither of them wins the Mayor’s Office, they have ideas and experiences that could be useful to Mission Hill. Likewise, they can bring Mission Hill’s experiences back to their neighborhoods.
It is often said that Boston is a city of neighborhoods. The unspoken addition is, “Neighborhoods that rarely talk to each other.” This race is a great chance to meet our neighbors and learn new ways of working together for both local and citywide benefit.
