How slow of a State Primary Election Day is it in West Roxbury? The metal railing in the Holy Name School parking lot, normally packed with candidate signs - still had plenty of room for signs to be affixed.
Without many contested local races, the Governor's Council District 2 Democratic Primary had the most action surrounding it, with three candidates centralizing their city operations in West Roxbury.
"I'm excited. I've worked hard," said Brian Clinton, outside of Holy Name, one of the four Democratic candidates for District 2. Clinton, of Hyde Park, said he started his day at the Holy Name School at 7 a.m. He added that he was concentrating his efforts in West Roxbury and Franklin (part of the council district).
Clinton's boss, District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo, was at Holy Name supporting his Chief of Staff. "Brian is going to be an outstanding Governor's Councilor." Consalvo championed Clinton's hardwork effort and experience.
Fellow Governor's Councilor candidate Patrick McCabe also visited Holy Name in the afternoon, talking with voters and Clinton about the day.
McCabe said his day didn't start off well due to his computer dying. He said he spent time in Sharon, Canton and Milton, where there are more contested races. He added the low voter turnout was disappointing.
Farther down the road was Governor's Councilor candidate Bart Timility, who was at the West Roxbury Library, while also making his way through the district. Also at Holy Name, was state Rep. Angelo Scaccia, D-Readville.
