    We don”t have an electorate representative of the city’s residents. the plurality of the residents are white 47% the majority of voters are still white 60%.

    I would like to see a pole which would analyize the outcome as if the balloting was by ranked choice voting (like the city of cambridge’s ballots are). I precieve that this field of candidates has several groups of overlaps. The vote transfers that would take place as various candidates are eliminated are interesting. Unfortunatly since the majority of voters are white this does not bode well for any candidate of colour but I have been waiting since 1983.

    I don’t even live in Boston, but I’ll say that the energy and creativity certainly goes to Felix Arroyo tonight. Wow.
