Councilor Mike McLaughlin appears to be serious about running for Joe McGonagle’s rep seat.
On or around February 10, he will be taking out papers.
He has apparently ordered bumper stickers.
He is preparing a campaign strategy, similar to that which powered him to victory over the mayor’s best friend last November. What is important there to note at this moment is that every thing about politics is always fluid, ever changing, and never static for very long.
McLaughlin is riding the tide of his victory last November.
That victory is a gift that keeps giving for McLaughlin, who has come a long way in his life with his storied success in local politics.
Many of us who watched his dogged campaign that ended in a stunning victory last November have come to believe in him.
In random talk between those who care about Everett politics, there is the commonly held belief that if Mike campaigns day and night across the city against McGonagle the way he campaigned against Al Lattanzi, that McGonagle ought to start packing his things for the move out of his State House office.
There is more at stake in this contest if it comes to pass than one or the other of these two winning the seat.
If McLaughlin beats McGonagle, he beats the machine, the DeMaria Crime Family machine, the DCF as Councilor Mike Marchese has called it.
There is a lot more at stake in this upcoming contest than McGonagle and McLaughlin.
