Feeney Challenges for Council President

Breaking news, as they say, just broken by the Dorchester Reporter. Maureen Feeney joins John Tobin, whose candidacy I broke in this story, and current Boston City Council president Mike Flaherty vying for the post.

Maybe there's so much competition because of the killer view the council president's office is sure to have in the new waterfront City Hall.

Feeney told the Reporter that she "already had the support of some councillors, but declined to reveal whom."

Feeney would be, amazingly, the first woman to lead the council.

Update: Yes, it would be amazing -- if it were true. But in fact Louise Day Hicks was president of the city council, as I have been reminded.
