I could not attend Ward 13’s caucus, held on Monday, February 26, due to a professional commitment. Work also prevented me from attending Ward 17 on Tuesday, February 27. Ward 11’s caucus was to be held only a few days later, though – on Saturday, March 3 – so I eagerly anticipated the upcoming weekend. I planned to run for delegate to the convention and had also volunteered to cook breakfast for the morning’s caucus attendees. On March 1, the Thursday before the caucus, I had an interesting and productive meeting with Christopher A. Iannella, Jr. of Jamaica Plain: attorney, Governor’s Councillor for the 4th District, son of Christopher A. Iannella, Sr. and brother of Richard Iannella, former Register of Probate and Boston City Councillor. We discussed my law school prospects and he broke down some of the several Democrat primary fields now taking shape in Boston. He was especially perceptive when it came to the District Attorney race, predicting the entry of an assistant DA. Iannella proved prescient when, only a few days later, Greg Henning of Dorchester, ADA in charge of the gang unit, declared his candidacy for Suffolk County District Attorney.
