POLLING PLACE: MARY ELLEN MCCORMACK TASK FORCE OFFICE – 345 OLD COLONY AVENUE
WARD, PRECINCT: 7, 6 & 7
NEIGHBORHOOD: South Boston
TOTAL VOTES CAST: 75
SIGNAGE WINNER: Dozens of signs – signs everywhere – for everyone from Essaibi George to Flaherty and Murphy.
WHAT WE SAW: Two pickup trucks illegally parked outside while their occupants ran in to vote. Lots of boisterous Walsh supporters, one of whom told me he’s “going to be out all day and night.” With the exception of a pair of Connolly volunteers – one young woman with a nose ring and a young professional guy in nice dress – everybody seemed to know each other.
WHAT WE DIDN’T SEE: The two guys working the nearby rotary for Connolly giving much of a shit.
WTF?: There was literally a guy inside of the polling place bumming money to buy cigarettes.
Props to the Connolly guy for hooking up some pocket change.
