Mayor Candidates Race Across the Finish Line

     They all have certainly worked hard enough to win the race, but in true democratic fashion the Mayor’s medallion can and will only be worn by one candidate on Saturday night when Bob “The General” Lee crowns the winner. The Tenth Annual Mayor of South Boston Election will be held on Saturday March 4th from 10:00AM to 2:00PM at the South Boston Public Library on East Broadway. The announcement party will be held at Touchie’s Shamrock Tavern beginning at 7:00PM. The Mayor’s announcement will take place at 9:00PM.

             

     Who will succeed Janice Connolly Laubenstein? All of the experts predict a close election and once again it seems that the result will be determined on Saturday. Who will march in the St Patrick’s Day Parade and take part in all of the celebrations leading up to the parade? Will it be Tom White who has certainly brought a different dimension as well as some unique fundraising ideas including a Doo Wop Night, A Mass and a Taste of South Boston Night, a Las Vegas Night and T-shirt sales. Will all of those fundraisers be enough to propel Tommy White to the parade?  Or will Brian Mahoney’s Mardi Gras and Country and Western events send Brian to the head of the parade on March 19th ? We know the Mayor won’t be a female this year because Colleen Foley in a magnanimous gesture of territorial solidarity has thrown her support behind the other Andrew Square candidate John Paige. Paige has also been very active with a number of well attended fundraisers and maybe Foley’s support will be enough to send the medallion to the Square. Who knows? All we do know is that all of the candidates deserve our thanks and your support on Saturday. It’s been a great race and we hope you will take part on Saturday.
