BTU poll shows voters favor like-minded mayoral hopefuls

As it prepares to endorse its first mayoral candidate in more than 20 years, the Boston Teachers Union will release a poll Wednesday that shows voters favoring candidates with similar beliefs in public education as the union.

That poll found that 73 percent of respondents said they favored a mayoral candidate who would work with the teachers union, rather than one who would “stand up to the teachers union because they are an obstacle to improving schools.”
