Murphy To Conley: Thanks, But No Thanks

The city council president responds to the DA's casino vote pestering in letter form.

Dan Conley, District Attorney, has now become Dan Conley, mayoral candidate—and has suddenly taken a great interest in the pressing question of who gets a vote in whether a casino is placed on the Boston-Revere border or the Boston-Everett border. He’s been drawing a great deal of press attention with his demand for a city-wide vote instead of the East Boston-only vote mandated by state law.

Conley fired off a letter to the city council, asking them to do something about it (below). City council president Stephen Murphy was unimpressed, and has fired off a letter in response—which I have obtained. Here it is:
