It’s not unusual for political candidates to pick running mates that campaign for office on the same ticket, like presidents and vice presidents. But a group of candidates all vying for seats on the Boston City Council are forming a different kind of coalition, with three candidates – two incumbents and a hopeful – all sharing office space and resources. They say the move is a new model of doing local politics that emphasizes supporting each other with the goal of advancing a shared vision for the city. Jim Braude was joined by City Councilors Michelle Wu and Kim Janey, and candidate for City Council At-Large Alejandra St. Guillen.
