Pete said it best today: Avi Green's campaign is one of global good vs. local good. It's definitely good for the district to have a powerful representative who is in with Finneran; in terms of political power, East Cambridge and East Somerville benefit from Toomey's presence. Toomey is bad on global terms, because of his stances on certain issues.

It feels wrong to come in as an outsider and say "You people should give up all the benefits you may get from this arrangement, so that your guy will vote the guy I want more often." That's for them to decide.

I'm hoping Avi pulls this off, but the last three weeks I've basically done nothing for the campaign, because of a vague sense of ill ease (and, well, because I've been busy)... and Pete finally verbalized it for me today, as we were driving down Inman St. towards Cambridgeport.

It was a good day, and I must write of Ikea, and the last few weeks, and work, and life, and scheduling stress, and how optimism breeds flakiness.

Just not tonight. I gotta go to bed. Got a rally runthrough to get to in the morning.

I ran into Avi at a BBQ a few days ago and had a good discussion that convinced me to vote for him. I haven't done any campaigning, but I should probably do a "remember to go vote" post. I don't feel at all bad pushing for him given that I live in his district...
