I totally agree with you Q. I've been monitoring comments down at Dempseys when I have my morning coffee and I've noticed that many DiDomenico supporters are actually switching over. Just this morning there was a city worker who was complaining that he didn't like being told who to vote for.

Truth be told, I cant haven't heard one real reason to vote for the guy. What has he done?

Around town a lot of people are still undecided from what I hear. At least a lot of my friends and family are. Everyone wants the Everett guy but no one knows anything about the Everett guy except he's the Everett guy. Mayor Carlo ran for this seat back on '02 as the Everett guy and that didn't go so well for him... If I had to guess, I'd say it's Flaherty.

I def think it's Sal. Flaherty has run a dirty campaign and people are fed up with that kind of politics. All the polls are pointing to Sal as well. He has the best chance.

I am with Sal. I go to Dempsey's and Pete's all the time. I haven't heard Tim's name in a good way yet. Sal all the way. What has Tim done. Just because your attorney, you are qualified. Sal has done the job at the State House and been a city councillor. He know how government works and he knows the district and the job. Why can't people just support who they want and not come out here and bash the candidates. Everyone should be respected.

Tim Flaherty and his partners Wayne Murphy and Walter Steele (Murphy, Steele and Flaherty) are a bunch of losers. Lets see Mr. Murphy is currently suspended for practicing law (has to reapply for his law license next year) Walter Steele is disbarred from practcing law. I think the state of Massachusetts should be aware of these people because they are scam artists. i know for a fact the Tim Flaherty is under investigation by the FBI for all types of FRAUD. I wouldnt be suorisedc if we read in the coming years that there is an indictment of thses three. Be AWARE of these people.

Believe me, people make mistakes in life and there are lawyers that try to clear their names. But when you fail the mention this is what your practice has been for the last 12 years, and only boast that you use to be an Assistant DA, it will come back to bight you in the rear. This just one of many people Tim has defended.

Most of the people from Everett are voting for DiMinico because they think because he is from Everett that he will help Everett,This is false thinking.He lacks the education that Tim Flaherty has .Tim is a Professor at B.C.not to mention an Attorney.

The great thing about this country is that it takes all kinds: races, ethnic backgrounds, education levels, etc. There are numerous Lawyers in the Legislature. Do we really need another one? I like the idea of the average, everyday person representing me am "average, everyday person."
Tim seems to have so much on his plate--law practice, professor, etc.--I question how much time he will really give to his Legislative duties. Sal is and will continue to be a full time Senator who does and will have the time to give his full attention to the District.
I can do without another lawyer. The only immediate improvement over Sal I can see is if a woman ran for the seat.

Sounds like Mr. Flaherty is a busy guy! A professor with a private law practice doesn't have time to represent me in the manner which I deserve. Isn't this his THIRD time running for this seat too?
