District 7 was a much tougher decision. Current Councilor Tito Jackson is the coolest guy around, and said personality has opened doors for Roxbury that were previously closed during the contentious tenure of Chuck Turner. At the same time, the Dudley Square and Grove Hall areas need more than just a dedicated and beloved servant–they need someone willing to form massive and aggressive coalitions that will descend on City Hall like a mob. Longtime outspoken activist Jamarhl Crawford has proven he can apply such pressure. We recommend him for Roxbury, especially since Jackson could make a fine addition to the next mayoral administration in any number of capacities.
