Raising taxes is a toothache for any mayor. Add neighborhood crime and now you’ve got voter root canal. The two combined will gum up any reelection effort which is why Mayor Bill Finch is paying attention to the spike in violent crime with neighborhood outreach. Kudos to police for quick response to the recent events.
There’s a lesson here for every pol as well. When crime is down be very careful about taking credit for it.
