Connolly Wants Developers to Get Fast Track For Schools

John Connolly, candidate for Boston mayor, with supporters before the 20th annual Corrib Classic 5K Road Race on June 2, 2013.

 

Boston At-Large City Councilor and mayoral John Connolly proposed allowing a fast track permitting process for large developers, if they agree to build a school or fund any of the $ 1.8 billion in construction projects identified as needed for Boston Public Schools.

“We look at large school development projects and offer an option to developers to give them a fast-track permitting process. Keep it to six months, and still do the full-robust process, but get it done in six months – in exchange for building a new school or the adoption of a major school project,” said Connolly during the Boston City Council’s Wednesday meeting. He added that projects would still get rejected, and those developers would not have to build a school or adopt a project.

Through recent budget hearings, Connolly said that Boston Public School (BPS) long-term facilities plan “is in development”, and that $ 1.8 billion in new construction needs have been identified, as well as $ 640 million in needed renovations and repairs, and $ 500 million in deferred maintenance costs. read more

Connolly Rails on Boston Redevelopment Authority and Menino

Boston City Councilor and mayoral candidate John Connolly had some harsh words for the Boston Redevelopment Authority and outgoing Mayor Thomas Menino.

“Although we have thrived from a development perspective, we are trapped in a system that puts the focus on who you know rather than the merit of your project,” Connolly said at a candidates forum, according to the Boston Herald. “That’s what we need to break and that’s the transparency — we need transparent decision-making within the BRA.”

Connolly made the comments during a development-oriented candidates’ forum hosted by the Boston Society of Architects on Wednesday morning.

Who Would You Vote For: Menino or Connolly?

At the very least, it’ll be interesting.

Boston City Councilor John Connolly threw his hat into the ring Tuesday and announced his candidacy for mayor. Connolly, a city councilor since 2007, has been raising money at an accelerated clip, according to the Globe. That money haul and speculative tweet made this the worst kept secret in the city.

Menino, on the other hand, is no shrinking violet, either. A prolonged illness late last year led to speculation that the longest-serving mayor in city history would step down at the end of this term. The Globe notes, however, that a return to health has led to whispers among the cognoscenti that Menino will run again. 

What do you think? Should Menino run again? Does Connolly have the political organization to beat as cagey a Boston politico as the mayor? And who would you vote for in this hypothetical match up? Tell us your thought in the comments below (Write-in candidate ideas are welcome)! read more

Connolly: Would Look to Preserve South End Character, Improve Schools

Connolly - South End

At-Large Boston City Councilor John Connolly announced on Tueday morning he will run for mayor of Boston this year, regardless of whether or not current Mayor Thomas Menino decides to run. 

Connolly said he respects Menino and his service to Boston, but noted he thought it’s time for a change in leadership. 

“I’ve worked with [Menino] and I’ve learned from him, however, this campaign is about Boston’s future, and the need for new ideas, new energy and a new resolve for Boston to reach its full potential.”

Connolly said the way to ensure the future success of the city of Boston is to invest in its public schools to completely transform them into high-performing schools.

“The success of our schools directly impacts our ability to create safe healthy and liveable neighborhoods as well as our ability to create jobs, attract talent and retain families in Boston,” Connolly said. “It’s not a mission impossible. Transforming our schools is a matter of political will and a bold desire to change the status quo.” read more

Boston City Councilor Connolly Running for Mayor

Boston City Councilor John Connolly is running for mayor in 2013.

Boston City Councilor John Connolly is announcing he is running for mayor today. 

“I’m running for Mayor because Boston should be the first city in America to transform urban public schools and offer every child a world-class education. We all need our Boston Public Schools to work because great schools lead to safe and healthy neighborhoods,” wrote Connolly on his campaign website.

Connolly, from West Roxbury, is in his third term, and is announcing his mayoral candidacy at the corner of Warren and Cambridge streets, in Brighton at 11 a.m. today. A former teacher and father of two young children, Connolly said he will focus on bringing “change to Boston Public Schools and to bring new ideas and new energy to the challenges facing the City of Boston.”

“If I’m elected mayor, I’ll work every day for Boston to be a city where anyone can make their home and say it was the best decision they ever made,” wrote Connolly on his website. read more
