Mike, Lynne and Ryan chat with 3rd Suffolk Candidate Susan Passoni, one of six candidates vying for the Special Election to fill Sal DiMasi’s old seat. Susan is a long-time resident of Boston’s South End, one of the several neighborhoods in this ethnically and socio-economically diverse district. Other parts include slices of the North End, Beacon Hill, Chinatown and even Roxbury. Her background is both as a very active community organizer, serving on many local education and community boards, as well as a longtime research analyst in finance.
On the show, she talks about reasonable measures to raise revenue, reforming home rule policy so cities and towns are able to make even basic decisions without needing state approval, as well as a great deal on education reform. Plenty of policy details abound in the 30 minute show.
