Boston's Haitian activist, Sylvane Simon, compares Boston's Mayor Menino to dictator Duvalier
By Yves A. Isidor, wehaitians.com executive editor
CAMBRIDGE, MA, Nov. 2 - Like in many other states, Tuesday, November 3 is when all municipalities in the state of Massachusetts will hold final elections for a multitude of public offices.

However, the race that seems to interest a large number of people most is that of the city of Boston, where Thomas Monino has been mayor for 16 years - the longest ever serving mayor in the history of Boston - and, a major city with a non-performing public school system that continues to be a point of contention in the campaign.

At a candidate Michael Flaherty's most recent mayoral event, Haitian activist Sylvane Simon had unpleasant words for Boston's incumbent mayor, Menino. "Menino 's years in power are sure the equal of those of the genocidal Duvalier regime in Haiti."
