Councillor earns well-deserved post
Eastie’s Boston City Councillor Sal LaMattina has once again shown his political acumen with his colleagues in government by being named the vice-president of the Boston City Council by Boston City Council President Steven Murphy.
LaMattina might well have been the Boston City Council president himself this time around if he hadn’t deferred to Murphy, who is his friend and colleague on the council.
There isn’t a lot to do as Boston City Council Vice-President.
The position is largely ceremonial, as is the president’s position.
LaMattina is showing he understands what to do and how to do it.
The rest of the matter is about timing and luck.
LaMattina is revealing he has more than a bit of both going for him.
We congratulate Councillor LaMattina on being handed this new honor.
