District Attorney Conley Announces Bid for Mayor

File photo - Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley speaks to the press after court was dismissed.

In a statement sent to the press, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley declared his candidacy for mayor on Wednesday afternoon.

“Boston is a great city, and with the right leadership and vision, its best days are still ahead,” his statement said. “So today I am officially declaring that I am a candidate for Mayor of Boston.”

In his announcement, Conley said Boston needs to find a balance between the poor and vulnerable, middle class families, and economic hope and mobility, all while staying transparent and accountable.

“Boston can only reach its full promise and potential when every one of its residents has a fair chance to reach theirs,” he said. “I intend to put my heart and soul (and several pairs of shoes) into this campaign.”

Boston Sexual Abuse Attorney: ‘The New Pope Will Just Toe the Company Line’

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio

A Boston attorney who has helped hundreds of Catholic sexual abuse victims obtain settlements believes the new pope will continue to ignore sexual abuse issues.

“Pope Benedict and the current pope will just toe the company line. And he’s going to continue to sweep sexual abuse issues under the rug and maintain the secrecy, which has allowed sexual predators to thrive,” said Mitchell Garabedian, who heads a Boston law firm specializing in helping victims of sexual abuse. “I think sources from outside will continue to force the church to reveal the ugliness of child abuse within the church.”

Garabedian also offered his recommendations for the new pope – Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina.

“For an institution such as the Catholic church to hold themselves as the most moral organization in the world – they have to act morally. The pope is the leader of that institution. He has to clear house. He has to get rid of bishops who have allowed children to be molested. He has to report them to the police and support victims who have been sexually molested. The pope has to institute a policy of transparency so that victims are allowed to heal, and other victims are empowered – and the world is made a safer place for children.” read more
