CORRECTION: The candidates will have two debates after all - they agreed to a second one on Oct. 11.
After both sides agreed not to scab out at a WBZ debate, we're left with just a single mayoral debate, at WGBH's studios on the 10th (and now a second one the next night at Hibernian Hall in Roxbury). Tito asked Marty for at least four total debates. One of Marty's minions replied, basically: Yeah, right.
Speaking of Walsh opponents, John Connolly popped up this week to endorse Stephen Passacantilli in the District 1 (East Boston, Charlestown and North End) council race. Connolly's from far-off West Roxbury, but he did win Charlestown and the North End when he ran against Walsh four years ago.
Passacantilli and challenger Lydia Edwards have agreed to have more than one debate.
In District 2 (South Boston, South End, Chinatown, Downtown), less than successful candidate Corey Dinopoulos endorsed Mike Kelley in his race against Ed Flynn.
The Dorchester Reporter takes a look at the candidates in District 7 (Roxbury, with a bit of Dorchester): Kim Janey and Rufus Faulk. Janey came in first in the September preliminary, but only got about 25% of the vote (in a 13-person field).
