Who is Barrett Shilling For?

It's really clear that John is trying to soften up and embarrass Dick by coordinating the anti-school campaign. JBIII knows he'd get his own clock cleaned if he ran, so who is he playing surrogate for?
Moulton? John could control him.
Bosley? John would get hired and both their state pensions would increase.(And Dan's post statehouse career hasn't been particularly lucrative.)
Carridi? Again, John could play puppetmaster.
Are there other political types allied with Barrett who might be in the wings? Most of his old allies are dead, near dead or he pissed them off. There's obviously a reason bigger than joining the Cardimino Club that John is being a dick to Dick.

Moulton wouldn't have a chance.
Bosley is already collecting his State pension. I would assume that the new Science Center will be named after him and he will have some role in administrating the program.
Carridi, while a puppet on a string, would look like a schmuck in Boston if her work on securing the SBA monies were denied by the major voting block in her district. Maybe she's sick of the commute? Either way it's a no win for her.
As witnessed at last night's Council meeting John Barrett is not above throwing anyone under the bus and then backing up to make sure they felt the bus. He has obviously convinced all of his past "Unindicted Co-Conspirator's" that this is his Last Hoorah.

I don't understand what you mean by this. Are you saying the April 30 election is John's farewell?

No of course not-- the references here I think were to the Mayor's racein 2013--Barrett is not shilling for anyone he has people shill for him

While John is playing the usual suspects (and a couple I am surprised to see) like violins, I am completely convinced that he is using this anti-school movement to pave the way for an ally.
Who and why?

It's gotta be Bosley. Look for Dan to swoop in to "heal" the divisions in the city. Little will anybody suspect that the turmoil was all part of the plan.

I say Dan. Dan kept John far away during the sheriff campaign. It didn't help. People knew his connections. His alignment with John hurts him more than helps. People will fear he will put John in a top position. He would.
