WHAT HAPPENS WITH MAYOR'S RACE IN '13 NOW? by Sal Giarratani Many political know-it-alls, you know that group of media faces always getting interviewed about campaign races, assumed that if Michael Flaherty had snatched one of the four at-large seats this past Election Day, he would use it as a springboard to another run for mayor in two years. However, with his loss at the polls, he may now be taken out of any consideration as a mayoral candidate then. If he is out of the picture, the first thing to figure out is whether Mayor Tom Menino is ready to engage in a campaign for a sixth term. If he does run, he might not even get a serious challenger. However, if he does retire, we can assume a wild preliminary fight amongst a number of viable candidates. Ayanna Pressley or Felix G. Arroyo might seriously consider a run for mayor. There is also John Connolly to contend with as well. The mayor's race in 2013 could be a very important race after 2 1 years of a Menino-run City Hall. I also see City Councilor Rob Consalvo from District 5 being a very strong contender for the job. The next mayor will become the first mayor elected in the 21st century. He or she will be much younger than the incumbent and will offer hopefully some fresh ideas and greater energy. Boston voters may very well be ready for change two years down the road. Menino remains quite popular but how long in office might be too long in office? We haven't had a good mayor's race since 1967, when Kevin White won the first of four terms, or 1983, when Ray Flynn went on to serve 10 years at City Hall as mayor. Time will quickly tell what is to be because as soon as one campaign ends, you know the next one has already begun.
