Local Pols Show Up for McCain

John McCain just spoke at Faneuil Hall along with supporters Henry Kissinger and R. James Woolsey. (I’ll have more on the substance of the event later.) But two local politicians showed up, both of them Brighton Democrats — or ex-Brighton Democrats –Jerry McDermott, formerly a member of the Boston City Council, and Brian Golden, formerly the neighborhood’s state representative. Golden is a military attorney, having served in Iraq monitoring prison conditions, and McDermott was the closest thing to a hawk you could find on the 5th Floor. Neither man currently resides in Boston. Golden currently works for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. McDermott heads up Habitat for Humanity’s South Shore operation.
