It's gotten to the point that individuals wanting to be Boston mayor openly admit they are waiting for Thomas Menino to step aside.
The Boston Herald did a roundup of the usual suspects expected to make a run at being Boston's next mayor.
Included in the Herald's list are: Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley, City Councilors John Connolly, Ayanna Pressley, Felix Arroyo, Tito Jackson and Mike Ross. Arroyo is a JP resident. Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral, as well as state Representatives Linda Dorcena Forry and Marty Walsh were also tabbed as possible candidates.
Several of the usual suspects have said they'd like to run for mayor if Menino stepped aside, but not if he's still in office. Just ask JP's Maura Hennigan what it's like to run against one of the strongest mayoral incumbents in American history...
