Most politicians planning to skip parade

The vast majority of Boston and statewide elected officials and all 10 gubernatorial candidates do not plan to march in South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Sunday, a sign of the diminished political draw of an event that in decades past was a not-to-be-missed affair for local politicos.
