This is a racial equity argument for happy hour. Yeah the reason. I mentioned it. You know i'm. I'm often talk with people about one. Is boston fun. You know and in. Is it somewhere that really attracts people. And i think sometimes the conversation stops the because people think it's about like people wanna dance more. They want to drink more But it's really a about Creating a some economic activity and we know that particularly as as generations. When you get to millennials are younger. People are choosing where they live and then choosing where they work. And so. if you don't have places that really draw people in in you know if you have a certain level of education and connections and other things at this point you could probably find a good job most places so most cities and it's really about where do i want to create a life.

You made your announcement today outside. East boston high school. You just referenced. The fact that you were a teacher for thirteen years certainly the boston public schools is a huge part of this sort of oversight and supervision of the mayor of boston and it's been a tough year with covid nineteen especially in relations between the city the superintendent and teachers. What do you think you bring to the table. As a former teacher that would be unique in the mayor's office now.

More body police police body camera usage Yesterday, we heard from a member of the task. Force today. We will get reaction from a reformer and from the president of the Boston Police patrolman's association we begin with Shag Anita Wu. He's -secutive director at the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts and Co founder of the Boston Police Camera Action team she gun welcome back to Radio Boston. Thank you. So I just want to start by asking you for your reactions to the recommendations from the task force. You know we The cat were extremely hopeful unhappy of the recommendations that task force put together. You know everybody who was on that task force put in so many volunteer hours to talk to members of the community up both who have had negative experiences with police officers but also would have been advocating for a lot of these issues now decades. So we were happy to see that they took the bold step to ensure that everybody's voice was are recognized in that report. And had no shame or fear of putting that on the mayor's task saying now of all your court to actualize all these things. So the ball is in his court now and he embraced all the recommendations, yesterday set essentially a timeline of one, hundred, eighty days for implementation. Are you optimistic that all of the recommendations will happen and in that timeframe? But I don't Wanna get ahead of a of an actual timeframe. So I will be happy to come back on the show one hundred and eighty days to share whether or or not You know we've actually stopped to that time line. Of course, grateful that the mayor has embraced. All of these recommendations has not tried it all to a with a out of doing certain recommendations and committing to others. But you know I'm also very at his be beget. We're very used to press conferences and a commitment to making things come about several years ago that the commitment was made to equip every officer with the body camera and fortunately that had to be another recommendation in this report because it hadn't happened yet so. We're hopeful that we will. Meet that timeline. But you know we're we're cautiously optimistic I. Guess as they're short answer to that question. So let's say that with the second longer we're are overall the pressure points or the pain points that you might anticipate as a as an activist and a reformer in getting all these implement all these recommendations implemented. While I think one of the major pink winter's coming up after this conversation you know we we don't yet know where the police unions stand on. On on these reforms, pressures and you know we don't know what the internal issues may be a to actualize all of these recommendations.

"We've been pamphleting her takeout are take takeout bags pretty heavily and talking with our customers one on one when they come to the window and ask how they can help. We have been sharing the independent restaurant coalitions work to petition their Representatives about this and so when the restaurants act was included in the Heroes Act, we are thrilled because we. Were pretty certain that that was one of the only ways that we were going to. Make it through that and help from landlords and I think that's probably the the. Deal for most restaurants, it's a little bit from the landlord and a little bit from the. Federal Government. So it was. Really disappointing. Yeah. I WANNA I WANNA grab a call on this one, eight, hundred, four, two, three, eight, two, five, five, that's eight hundred four to three talk. What's the restaurant your most anxious about in your community if your restaurant tour, what changes have you had to make we've got eric on the line from Jamaica. Plain. Eric go head. Yeah. Hello yes. My it's more of a comment but looking toward the future you just kind of concerned about what the restaurant and food landscape looks like in Boston around the country it just feels like the the chains are going to be able to prevail through this because they have the most money and it just seems like it's just going to homogenize the food landscape. You know just place you go in the United. States just having the same food and you know that that's kind of concerning for me. I I really hope that you know we can preserve sort of our restaurants in our food culture. In Boston it's more of a comment so. Thanks Erica appreciate that. Yeah, and let's turn to both heather and Irene about that talk about what's happening to to use. Eric's words our food culture in Boston during this pandemic and what the tale of that is gonNA look like. When we finally do, for example, have a vaccine. How are you thinking about that? Either of you? I'll take. I. Go ahead. I think in the short term I think Eric's absolutely right I. think chains are going to win out over independent restaurants because they have the bargaining power to come up with better deals with landlords or You know they just have more money to throw at a pivot compared to an independent restaurant I think it's going to proliferate quick serve restaurants, which isn't a bad thing but I think it's going to. Just be a better climate for chains like chipotle. Way. For instance, I think that's more of a short term issue I. Think Long Term We might actually see a shakeup that allows for a more sustainable rent Climate for small businesses you know, maybe the next five years unless, of course, those chains have taken up all the..

"So late restaurant and like many of my colleagues who are restaurant owners, this is a challenging time and we also had to make a pivot as far as our dining is concerned. We we are in the headquarters of the Boston, school department and with so many administrators working from home our revenue has declined. So what we're doing is leaning more on the takeout concepts and family meals. So folks can come in buy in bulk and take it back home because the design in that we are so accustomed to and so enjoyed for for years has changed tremendously and it's going to be this way for quite some time. Thank you for that call Cheryl. Heather let me give you a chance to react Cheryl there. I think she's right it It seems like we. We know that restaurants are risky behavior in sorry. Indoor dining in restaurants is risky behavior and so to pivot with family meals like she said, and other sorts of takeout or even packaged goods for sale at a farmer's market or collaborations with other local businesses for pickup and drop off sites. It's it. It's kind of a bright spot in this really difficult time all the all the new ideas that are coming from it. One of the things that was intriguing in talking to both of you is your feelings about the safety of in restaurant dining in person dining kind of regardless of where the state is on allowing it you both. Have expressed reservations about that. And it raises questions about responsibilities of patrons, responsibilities of the state responsibilities of the restaurant industry. Do you do you feel disproportionately burdened and having to make these pivoting? Decisions for your businesses when when the state is in a different place on it. Irene maybe you can. You can go first. Yeah I think what's hardest for me not just as a restaurant owner but also as a diner and someone who really loves restaurants is that there's not consistent guidance and so restaurant owners are in the position of trying to decide what is safest for for us and for our teams and for our broader community and you know both my parents were doctors but I'm not an epidemiologist, and so I think one of the things that has been frustrating is the lack of. Leadership at you know at so many levels, and also we understand that that diners are getting really mixed messages about what's Okay and about what they should do and about how they can save the restaurant industry and frankly at this point, you know I think that only only the bailout is going to save our industry or at least.

"The Boston, the Boston Special Education. Boston Special Education Parents Advisory Council here's what she said. This opportunity to be back in school has changed our children just seeing them and Start to open up and just these two days of being in school. It's almost like seen different children. So to that point, those kids are staying in school. As you've mentioned, how is the district squaring that? If it's not safe for other students to return? How are they talking about safety for the students who are staying? Well I. Think it's a matter of like balancing benefits and risks here on their only about thirteen hundred kids back in the building right now those are the kids that can be listed under that high needs category and so you know having that few kids in the building does reduce transmission risk no. The district as a whole is fifty, five, thousand students so. In comparison spread out all of their buildings there's not a lot of people in them at the moment and the mayor, and the superintendent also stressed that they have a lot of faith in how effective you know their new cleaning protocols are and how affected their masks policies are. I noticed to carry that both the mayor and Superintendent Caselli talked about the other kinds of risks for these high needs students that can't be mitigated in the same way that Cova risks can be. So does that seem to be figuring into the Calculus? Yeah I really think. So I mean you know one thing that was talked a lot about the press conference was just you know the the risk of regressing especially when you know their skills that students have been working on for a really long time and a lot of a lot of the high needs students need you know pretty significant wraparound services that's that's really hard for an individual parent or even individual family to have the skills to be able to do effectively and so that that was definitely part of the Calculus..

It's the whole city of Boston since the beginning of the pandemic complaints about rats and mice and neighborhoods all over the city have spiked. So let's look into it here discusses Leo Bouchier Assistant Commissioner of Boston inspectional services, Commissioner Voucher. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you and also on the line with us as Boston city, Councillor Ed. Flynn whose district includes South Boston the. South End Chinatown Council Flynn Walk on radio. Boston. It's good to be with you Chris, and we also WanNa hear from you have you noticed more rats in the city recently have any crazy rats stories or my stories you want to share or tips for dealing with them you can call us one, eight, hundred, four, two, three, eight, two, five, five. That's one eight, hundred, four to three talk where you can send us a tweet at radio, Boston. Commissioner Bashar let me start with you. Can you give us a sense? How many more rat complaints are you getting this year compared to years past? So number our numbers percentage wise. We're up considerably at one point probably about thirty percents interesting knows not reflect a number of things not the least of which is folks are calling in the same complaint, multiple times and That just gives us an indication that there is a serious problem or an infestation, and it's certainly something we want to address immediately. Flynn I noticed in issue you've been working a lot on you called for a public hearing recently what are you hearing from your constituents? Hearing a lot of similar concerns that Leo mentioned but concerns had rats and nicer running throughout many neighborhoods. In Boston, a lot of the restaurants have closed or closing. So there's no food supply for them. So to going through a lot of the garbage bag set left on the sidewalk in the street. So it it is a significant problem. It's a quality of life issue. It's a public health issue. Let's dig into that a little bit in terms of public health issue Obviously nobody likes seeing rats running around the streets or. Comfortable in your house But can we talk a little bit about what is the actual health issue that this presents people? Well. One of the one of the one of the points is obviously rats can do carry disease rat to human transmission is not something that's very common. But if there's a proliferation of rat urine feces, it certainly caused concern. So it's obviously within everybody's best interest particularly US as a as a municipality to try and eliminate the food sources and eliminate the number of rodents on the street. All the rats need a food and water. They don't need anything extravagant that does not spring water doesn't have to be filet Mignon Um, you know any type of food refuse.

"I I first of all, I want to say I know the mayor loves the city. Of Boston, just as much as I do we have been very intentional working in partnership especially when it comes to the pandemic, the council working in partnership with the administration and vice versa this pandemic is new for all of us. I think the part that is missing often lost in the conversation is how communities of color or doing They are disproportionately being hit by this pandemic and ways that are unimaginable dying at higher rates. The infection rates are higher in communities of Color, all across the Sea of Boston I represent a district that if predominantly of color and so there needs to be greater intention analogy with the specter, those communities of color in every conversation with respect to the pandemic, and that's what I've been pushing. What's one thing the city could or should have had done differently in these first several months of the pandemic better support communities, of color. Well I will tell you you know they're a coalition across the city of Boston including the Black Boston coalition run by Priscilla. Priscilla banks that I've been pushing for communities of color to have greater access to testing and rapid testing. We have folks killed who are going to get tested and only getting the results back after several days over a week, which is way too long there this coalition is also pushing for us to not only have an equity lens so that we understand that everything we roll out with respect to the pandemic across the city of Boston that we might have to have greater intention out in communities of color it's because of the longstanding health. In. Those communities which are being exacerbated by this pandemic and so we just have to be. Much more intentional with respect to testing resources and so much more I. Think we're doing better now but it was it was SMO- to. Start. Last question in in a sentence, it's hard to unseat incumbent mayor in Boston..

Not so crazy about virtual Understand why people might not think it's very satisfying. William Hague lives in the Back Bay he was supposed to run Boston and New York both of those marathons this year he'd rather wait for the real racist to happen again whenever that might be but Boston did not give him that option here he is I feel like in general. A virtual marathon it really doesn't cut it to to give an equal experience for the sacrificing in training and and fundraising a lot of these folks did. Really felt like there are other options to give its runners. If you're a registered for the Boston marathon this year, you got a refund for your entry fee but your only option to run was to do this virtual race which we've been talking about New York on the other hand he's Yana did allow registered rudders to defer their entry to one of I think the next three years. So William is planning to run on new. York. Next year if.

One of them, of course, is the Boston Marathon for the first time in its more than one hundred, twenty year history no one ran the Boston marathon on marathon. It's just not safe to combine thirty thousand runners and a million spectators during pandemic but just because we didn't have the big race in April, doesn't mean the marathon isn't happening at all.

We'll try to keep this not so melancholy but let's see what happens. Well let's start with the brass tacks. Then Alex, what is the goal of this virtual marathon? Well, as you said, thirty thousand runners usually run the marathon every April it was supposed to be the one, hundred, twenty, four this year back in March officials said, maybe we can have the marathon in September but then in May, they said it's just not going to. Be Possible to do it. So the Boston Athletic Association wanted to give the runners. The folks that were registered run this year something that would come close to the experience of actually running the marathon Patriot's day something that would mean all their training and hard work wouldn't go to waste. So they set up this virtual marathon. Here's Boston Athletic Association? CEO Tom Grill Normally the world comes to Boston this year that can't happen. So we want to do everything.

"We've not requested any data from that. We don't know whether they actually compile data from those overtime slips. Summarize what you're saying because there is a four hour minimum for overtime this. You're suggesting that you're hearing from the courts that there is a structural incentive for officers to bring evidence over physically while off duty that might otherwise come in electrically in order to get that. Few minutes turned into a four hour overtime payment. Am I understanding you correctly? And do we have any sense of whether? This is happening five times a year or five thousand times a year. What do we know about how ordinary or frequent this is? All just anecdotal, but you know what basically what we heard. Is that that you know? There are very few instances in which evidence needs to be physically conveyed to accord house and and again like in other cities and towns across Massachusetts it's not you know it's. It's always hand electrically and outside of body camera footage they. These defense attorneys have told us that you know pretty much. Everything is being brought over physically by a police officer. Do. You have a formal response to your story from either the Police Department or the city. Well for reporter Catherine, mcglaughlin aft- the. The police. Department you know sort of for an explanation of this and the starts. If you boil the spokesperson for the Boston Police. Department said that. Each case is different than unique and can depend on district. Attorney's handling the case or requesting the evidence, so he didn't really give a clear reason for why something like a transcript of a nine one one call needs to be printed out and carried over versus why? Versus sent over electronically. Now the current police contract with the union expired June thirtieth, so it's in renegotiations. We do know that there's been some mentioned in the Boston City Council of concern over this four hour minimum. Do you know if there is pressure change that four hour minimum in the new police contract, and have you heard anything from advocates about the police contract in response to your story. What we what we heard in a city council hearing last week was councilor. Andrea Campbell was complaining that you know there's no transparency in the negotiations she she specifically said she would like to know whether. The Walsh Administration is negotiating willing to negotiate over that for our minimum for overtime. And you know the I think the Walsh. Administration has been fairly consistent in saying that the negotiations are private. Which is so? Council thirty! Yeah, do you have a read on the mayor's openness or willingness to renegotiate things like over time in the new police contractor? We know what's on the table there. We don't neither city council When the when the mayor promised to cut twelve million dollars out of the the the overtime budget. You know some of the counselors thought it was. It was symbolic because you know when the when the when officers work overtime. They're entitled to their overtime pay. If you cut the budget, they'll just overspend. The budget and the city is is required to to to fund the but funded over time. You know whatever whatever the dollar amount is. They consistently overspend overtime budget so. That twelve million dollar cut seems like it was largely symbolic. Just to the last overtime budget was sixty point, eight million dollars, but expenditures, overtime or closer to seventy million dollars. Yabu before we let you go I. Do want to shift gears a little because there's actually another interesting wrinkle to this story. I saw your tweet when you tweeted on Monday. That while you were outside. Roxbury District Court taking pictures for this story. You were stopped and questioned by seven police officers. Can you tell us a little more about that experience? Certainly on the officers I I.
