    Naysayers don't get far when Dr. Bill Loesch is on the case
    He already has decades of community activism under his belt, but longtime Dorchester community leader Dr. Rev. Bill Loesch is focused on his next project. "Our goal is to convince the mayor to make an executive decision that all stores in Boston will no longer sell tobacco products," he says matter-of-factly during a recent sit-down interview in his Dorchester home.
