Connolly jabs Walsh on legislative record

City Councilor John R. Connolly again went after the legislative record of his mayoral opponent, state Representative Martin J. Walsh, arguing that Walsh’s efforts in the State House would have undermined funding for community police programs.

“You need to be a real independent leader who can work for all the interests in Boston if we’re going to get our priorities straight in this city,” Connolly said at a news conference today in front of Schrafft’s Chocolate factory in Charlestown, minutes before he was scheduled to speak at a violence-prevention forum. “My opponent’s legislative record indicates the exact opposite.”
