Flaherty took Back Bay

The preliminary precinct breakdowns from the city show that Michael Flaherty actually carried Ward 5 (Back Bay, Beacon Hill and part of Fenway), although barely (2,544 to 2,472). In the September preliminary, that was Menino country.

Floon also carried the day in Ward 16 in Dorchester, another area Menino took in September. Obviously, though, that and the Flaherty strongholds of Charlestown, South Boston and neighboring Ward 7 in Dorchester were not enough to overcome Menino romps in areas such as Hyde Park, Roslindale and Roxbury.

Matt O'Malley, who has much better eyes, dives into the numbers in much greater depth. On Blue Mass. Group, Bob has still more analysis of the numbers.

as a Flaherty supporter, I wish it were true, but Menino won West Roxbury by a larger margin than you report. And Ward 7 is mainly South Boston with a few Dorchester precincts...

If it weren't for the fact I just had an eye exam on Monday, I'd swear I need an eye exam. The tally was 7,418 to 5,240, according to Matt O'Malley.

In keeping with his vicious policy of payback, Il Duce will begin his ticketing and towing campaign for these neighborhoods. If you don't think he would do something like that, just ask people who know have dealt with him in the past. It is however, good news for people heading in to shop for the holidays over the next few months. Remember to keep those meters fed.
