Boston Common /

Our first blogging city councillor


NOTE: Boston Common is no longer being updated. For the latest Boston-area blog posts, please see Universal Hub

John Tobin, who represents West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain, has a nascent blog (RSS even!). The name of the guy who set up and is posting to the blog might sound familiar to those of you familiar with local bloggerdom, too.

Now while Tobin's the first sitting councillor to test the blogging waters, he won't be the first council candidate to blog (assuming he runs this fall). Matt O'Malley of Roslindale gets that honor for his 2002 campaign blog. Looks like O'Malley's getting ready to run again.
