A search of the Boston Globe archives for Carlos Henriquez reveals that the paper is, in fact, aware that there's a preliminary election for City Council in Roxbury -- although poor Carlos hasn't rated a mention since May 1. The Herald has not run a single news story about that race, but Alan Lupo did write about him in his column back in April.
Well, surely they've paid more attention to the extremely competitive council race in Allston-Brighton, right? Er, no. The Globe endorsed Tim Schofield last week, but apparently neither daily has printed Mark Ciommo's name this year. (Speaking of A-B, both papers also seem unaware that a trial is ongoing for the man accused of killing two people, including a visiting 18-year-old woman, in a Brighton apartment in January 2006.)
How about the state representative election in East Boston? The Globe ran a good piece by Michael Jonas in mid-August, and a story about Gloribell Mota a little later. That's a lot more than the Herald has done.
The Metro and Boston Now haven't done much better. Oh well. Happy voting!
