Candidates address minority officers at forum

John R. Connolly and Martin J. Walsh, the two finalists in Boston’s mayoral race, took turns Wednesday evening being grilled by members of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers, an outspoken group that has made no qualms about its desire to influence the first open race for the City Hall office in 20 years.

More than 100 association and community members packed the group’s headquarters in Dorchester as the candidates took the podium separately for 30 minutes to address issues of public safety, police diversity, and inequity of city services in minority neighborhoods.
