Brian McGrory

A model city councilor

It’s not every day that a member of that august legislative body known as the Boston City Council does something so extraordinary, so outside the limits of perceived possibility, that it must be publicly acknowledged. But today is one of those days.

Consider Charles Yancey, the representative from Mattapan and parts of Dorchester who is now serving his 15th term. He is uniformly described as a good and capable man who takes his family and his position seriously, but that’s not really the point.
