South End’s Ross Launches City Council Campaign

Long time South End resident Jeff Ross announced this week he would officially start his campaign for an at large seat on Boston’s City Council. 

Ross, a resident of the South End for the last 19 years, is an attorney in Boston, serves on the Democratic State Committee, and works as a local activist for LGBT rights. If elected, Ross, as an openly gay man, would be the first LGBT person to hold the at-large seat. 

“I’m running for the City Council At-Large because I believe our city is best served when it is represented  by a diverse group that is reflective of the city itself,” said Ross. “While I’m not in the race to make history as the first openly gay At-Large city councilor, the significance of it is not lost on me. Boston is a city that is strong because of its diversity and I am excited about how my campaign is already bringing people together across identities to focus on the issues facing us all.” read more

South End’s McKinley Among Schools That Received Suspicious Letters

The park extends along the perimeter of the parking lot behind McKinley School

One South End School, the McKinley school, was among the Boston public schools that received suspicious letters late last week.

As of Friday afternoon the Boston Police Department had collected 24 suspicious letters sent to Boston public schools, according to BPDnews.com.

“There does not appear to be any reason why any particular schools received letters, and it is possible that others have yet to arrive. The letters all appear to be from the same sender and have the same postmarked Texas address. The investigation is ongoing,” the BPDnews.com posting stated.

Boston Police increased presence at schools across the city on Thursday and Friday, and police have said there is no credible physical threat. The letters did not contain any dangerous substances.

The following schools received the letters:

Adams Elementary School
Beethoven Elementary School
Boston Community Leadership Academy
Boston International High School
Boston Latin Academy
Charlestown High School
Community Academy of Science and Health
Dorchester Academy
Edison K-8 School
Fenway High School

Two Candidates in Race for South End’s City Council District

As of Monday, May 13, which was the last day to pull nomination papers, two candidates were in the race for the South End’s District 2 city council race. 

Those candidates are South Boston’s Bill Linehan and Chinatown’s Suzanne Lee. 

If those names sound like deja vu, that’s because they are. The 2013 race is an exact copy of the 2011 race, which Linehan won over Lee by less than 100 votes. 

“I am confident that my first six years in office will stand up in comparison to anyone who has held office both as a State or City elected official from the neighborhoods of South Boston, South End, Chinatown, Bay Village, Downtown and look forward to continuing my efforts and improve on my ability to deliver for the people of District 2,” said Linehan in a statement. 

 “As I’ve continued to talk to residents throughout the district, I still hear concerns about jobs and liveable wages, about ensuring that every child has a quality education and about making Boston a place where families can find affordable housing options,” Lee said. “As City Councilor, I will build on my years of service to our communities and work hard to deliver the results that our families deserve.” read more

Marathon Spotlight: South End’s Pflug Running for Perkins School

For South End resident Jennifer Pflug, this year’s Boston Marathon is more than just a race. It’s an opportunity to raise money for a cause near to her heart – Perkins, founded in 1829 as the nation’s first school for the blind. Pflug is on the Perkins charity team, and personally committed to raising $  5,000 for the Watertown school. Currently a student at Northeastern University, Pflug participated in the physical therapy co-op program at Perkins last year. “Working at Perkins has greatly impacted my life,” she said. “I always knew that physical therapy was the right career choice for me, but I hadn’t realized my true passion until my experience at Perkins. As much as I like to think I impacted the students’ lives, they have truly inspired me. Day after day, the kids never ceased to put a smile on my face. I want to run the marathon for the students, for all of their hard work and efforts, and because despite any difficulties, at the end of the day, they just want to be kids.” To support Pflug’s marathon run and make a donation to Perkins, visit http://www.perkins.org/supportperkins/special-events/boston-marathon/2013/jenn-pflug.html.
