Southie, start your engines

Maureen Feeney has announced the schedule for the special election to fill Jimmy Kelly's seat on the city council. The preliminary will be Tuesday April 17, and the final on Tuesday May 15.

The prelim is on an interesting date: Monday the 16th is Patriots' Day, so that makes a huge three-day weekend for full-contact campaigning. The previous weekend is Easter. Another key date: Saint Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday this year, so the parade is March 17.

Looking at that neighborhood, you would think that one "traditional" Southie pol will reach the final along with one "new Boston" pol. But that could depend on how many of each type run in the prelim. Should be a fun one!
