The Boston Herald reports.
Why doesn't Tobin want an interim Mayor? Because he knows that no Mayor, whether elected or interim, who has had control over the BRA has ever lost an election. Once someone gets into the Mayor's office they are there for life as all development and business activity in the City must give fealty to the Mayor or face problems. Hence they control all campaign donations, etc.
This is why the BRA must be abolished and control of our land and property put under the auspices of our citizens through the city council.
