At-large Boston City Councilor John Connolly is an impatient man. As a friend of the show, as they like to say, he's always been candid with us here. He joins us to talk about his biggest step yet. He;s announced that regardless of what longest-serving Mayor Tom Menino decides, he's going for the office.
His huge issue is improving the so-so public schools. They've improved slowly...far too slowly for him. He and his wife has two school-aged kids and are serviouslyl devoted to public ed.
Listen in as John tells us what made him jump and how he expects to beat all comers, particuarly if the popular mayor goes in for a sixth term.
