Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is scheduled to attend today's 6th annual Shamrock Shootout in West Roxbury.
While Boston Mayor Thomas Menino hasn't declared whether he'll be seeking re-election - the Temple Street area, where the shootout takes place - is a big John Connolly neighborhood. Connolly, an at-large city councilor, announced his mayoral candidacy earlier this month, lives in West Roxbury.
Connolly has hammered the Menino administration on the recent student assignment plan, calling it "a lost opportunity for our children".
And the Shamrock Shootout will be packed with families with elementary-aged children.
The Shamrock Shootout begins at 10:30 a.m. at Temple and Sherbrook streets in West Roxbury.
So is this a campaign move for Menino gearing up for a mayoral election? Let us know in the comments section.
