Is visionary pragmatist a class? Bill Walczak was on today simultaneously expallining his calls for taking Boston to a higher level as mayor and his pulling-rabbits-out-of-hats career. His message is I’ve been there; I’ve done it; I want to do it with the city.
A very youthful sounding 58, he was all about forward movement, despite […]
Bill Walczak joins us to explain how he figures he can make big improvements in Boston. The long-time activist from Dorchester has a deep record of accomplishments and figures he can expand that citywide.
Sure enough, he founded the phenomenally successful, neighborhood-changing Codman Health Center, two schools and much more. He’s said finding and plugging […]
We got specific today with Rep. Martin J. (Marty) Walsh, candidate for Boston mayor. With 13, maybe even 15, running to succeed Tom Menino, Walsh has the shared problem — differentiating himself.
Particularly when the current craze is speed-dating-style candidate fora (45-seconds per complex topic per candidate), being the one voters remember is tough. Walsh […]
MA Rep. Marty Walsh would move offices from the State House to Boston City Hall. So far, he presents himself as a jack of all trades. a lifelong Dorchester resident, he says he loves the city as Mayor Tom Menino does. He wants faster public school reform and accelerated development in town. We’ll try to […]
John Connolly was on today — both on our show and energized. He explained how he wants to excite voters and bring them to share his three visions of high-quality schools in every neighborhood, safe and healthy living in every one as well, and a return to Boston’s role as a great job creator.
We had […]
Yet another Republican candidate for US Senate from MA, Gabriel Gomez is and isn’t in the Scott Brown mold. Both he and Brown are not really suited for the job, but both are OK looking and aw-shucks charming. Gomez doesn’t have any elected-office experience and Brown at least was a do-nothing state rep and state […]
.He says he can fix the Boston schools. The first major candidate in the race, even before Mayor Tom Menino decided not to run again, John Connolly joins us.
He has a full platform, but the big, gutsy plank is promising to put a high-quality school in every single neighborhood. That’s never been done and many […]
Today we joined the country in stomping, spewing and demanding some action. Sure, the wheezing attempt at making the Benghazi murders and attacks into a conspiracy is crap. Now though, wingers have some substance to their hysterics.
We dealt with the IRS focus on Tea Party-type groups seeking tax protection and on the DOJ collecting […]
With over two dozen announced and filed candidates to replace retiring Boston Mayor Tom Menino, we’re as busy as most.
We’ll start picking those to have on this show. Check here for updates and scheduled guests. We have no intention of trying to get everyone who’s pulled nomination papers lined up.
Today we touched on some […]
OK, politics fans, it’s long-time US Rep. Ed Markey for the Dems against venture-capitalist Gabriel Gomez for the GOP. They won the MA special-election primary to replace US Sen. John Kerry.
We did drift into the First Suffolk MA Senate (squeaker win by Linda Dorcena Forry over Nick Collins). Unlike the Markey/Gomez contest, she should […]
