HOPEFUL: SCOTLAND WILLIS
REPRESENTING Fort Hill, Roxbury
AGE 42
THEME SONG "It's Easy Being Green"
IN HIS WORDS "[I have] a plan for educational engagement to achieve reform goals. Prioritizing community over business propositions, sustainability begins with what I do each day, and [with] municipal accountability."
IN OUR WORDS Scotland Willis might not have the community-organizing background of his top competitors, but the single father of three boys, and corporate-sustainability and green-jobs expert, has tangible life experience and a champion smile that can win voters. We like Willis — we just think he should have gone for the low-hanging fruit and contested Chuck Turner on his home turf.
