Mayor, his friends, and BRA together cutting out the non politically connected

The Herald today does a series of articles showing how much BRA workers get, how many of them give to the Mayor, and how a developer lost their designation after they dared try and hire someone other than the Mayor's long term friend. As they found out, you don't mess with the Mayor or his friends.

I've told reporters for years if they really wanted to talk about what is going on in the city they need to write about the BRA. Kudos to the Herald for picking it up.

Notice that there are no layoffs at the BRA, but there are in city schools. Who does the Mayor really care about? The kids, or the developers who line his pockets? Maybe the children of the BPS should start holding bake sales to raise money for the Mayor's campaign and then their teachers and their programs won't be cut so deeply.
