Items on the checklist you've given us. Yeah it's to me. It's probably the least important Of all the things and so you know. I sit on the medical advisory committee for the newton public schools where my kids go to public school. And so this office personal when we make recommendations. I'm thinking how do i keep my kids safe in public schools in newton and obviously thinking about the same thing for kids across the country. And the checklist is the checklist. Laid out get everybody. Who's eligible vaccinated. Do weekly testing. Continue to work improving ventilation. and where. Get everybody to wear masks. Endorse i did not mention social distancing people bring up questions like see the social visiting now matter at all like no no some of the you know we we don't have crowded indoor assemblies At lunch space people out a little bit. Open up the windows. His seat do lunch outside for the next month or so well dealt. The numbers are still high. There are things we can do on the distancing side but that is not the most important thing. And we've seen that over and over again if you do the other four. You get a big break on distancing. I do want to note. According to the globe governor baker said today that roughly two thirds of kids. H twelve are inoculated in the commonwealth. Now one more thing. I'm children we understand that more children are getting the delta variant than got the alpha. We also know that the alpha strain had a very low mortality rate for kids. What about severe illness and death for kids with the delta variant. Yeah this is the big question that we've all been thinking about So a lot of kids have gotten sick Because a lot of kids have gotten infected and so the outbreak especially in the south have been so massive The kids get infected when adults around them are not vaccinated and spread it to them and so as kids have gotten infected of bunch of them have ended up hospitalized in the icu and unfortunately some children have died..

"Let's put governor baker next to that. He waited in light of the letter from donors this week when also asked by. Wbu ours. steve brown well. I've said And so as lieutenant governor by the way so many other existing elected republicans and previously elected. Republicans said that we don't believe many of the recent decisions and statements that have been made by the leadership at the state party are consistent with where we believe. Most republicans are generally. So they have it is in a nutshell Marie saint fleur. You have not been a member of the republican party. What does this look like watching it from the outside as an observer from the outside ursa said he's i think our country and our state Billing need a two party system And one where we may have differences in where we start in all honesty A perspective particularly fissile policy but Respect the dignity of all human beings and so it's sad to me that a virus that's infected. The republican hardy nationally on looks like it's making its way into massachusetts politics. I do commend ombu leadership from particularly the governor for standing up so it and others. I'm particularly the funders Who are saying not on our watch and so why may not have read when the The some of the policies that republicans even publicans have fought it tickly. The fiscal policy policies various specked that they are standing up which has not happened national That they're standing up in saying that this party means more to us and that will move in. We want to look forward to being born inclusive. So it's it's just to me. It's just like the virus that suspected nationally is now making its way into the democrat republican party here and the state of massachusetts and i hope that Those folks who are a decent and Long standing on republicans Stand strong and stand up against it so greater boston.

"But it's gonna be fascinating to watch do. Are there any poll numbers or other data. Anthony that suggests that baker could be vulnerable from the right With with jeff deals candidacy. Well not i mean what we know. Is that baker is more popular among democrats than with republicans. And you know his sort of secret sauce. As i've said on this show before is that he's won over a lot of democrats and a lot of independence and and enough republicans to be a very popular governor now in terms of making a case. I mean we heard deal. Making a case. I mean bakers has made some missteps along the way i mean. He's got a contend with the state police overtime. Fraud scandal He you know there's a case to be made that the holy the holyoke soldiers home tragedy. Where seventy six veterans died happened on his watch with someone that He helped point. You know even the tea which baker made a priority has had problems and and and then there were also problems with the roll out of the vaccine but none of that seems to stick. That's the issue that baker seems to benefit from so the latest poll. We have back in march From suffolk university in the boston globe shows seven and ten massachusetts. Voters still approve of baker. They give him high marks especially for his management of the pandemic. So he'll be tough to be all right. So i wanna talk a little bit about sequencing here. So in the offing. We have question marks over the heads of attorney. General moore healy and as i talked about with geoff. Diehl governor baker himself and whether they're going to enter the race. It is notable that geoff diehl entered as a republican candidate before governor baker. The republican governor made his decision. Does this change the calculus or anything else about who might enter or when with deal making this choice. Now i mean are you asking. Will it affect more a healy's decision. The deal was getting in now. What a lead affect her decision at all or her timing or governor baker time as sort of. I guess. I'm assuming anthony that there's some sort of set of dominos here. Yeah i mean. I think charlie baker is moving toward a decision. And i think you know inevitably. He's taking his time and that's because he's the incumbent and he can afford to the fact that he now has a challenger from the right shore. I'm sure that is is a bit of a nijr that he's going to have to make up his mind. But you know he's been pretty consistent with his statements about a when he's going to make up his mind and it's coming eventually but he keeps sort of trotting out the same answer that that's a decision that he and lieutenant Lieutenant governor karen pollino have to make in conversations with their families and that decisions coming soon. But i don't get the sense that deal jumping into the race is necessary. Necessarily lighting a fire under that decision making process all right so last thirty seconds. what else obviously. You'll be watching for those potential announcements. What else are you going to watch for over. The summer is the race heater heats up. Well we shouldn't forget that there are three really interesting. Democrats running for governor as well. Former state senator ben downing state senators sonia chang diaz and harvard professor danielle allen. Clearly it's going to be a steep. Climb for them..

"Ben, you're having me on. Absolutely. I know that always getting those crews out there early. Whether it's pre trading or starting to push the snow away is paramount. How are we doing right now? What are you up to? So we have about 2500 pieces of equipment out there right now treating and filing the roadways. We've ramped up slowly. We're probably gonna bring up a little bit more as this intensifies throughout the next hour, you know now that the sun has gone down We expect things there is going to start piling up pretty quickly that this is a little bit slower of the storm system moving in. But again that many women mascot and that our DPW's. They're well prepared for this, and I'm gonna do a great job. You got varying situations with this storm, Of course, inland. Lots of snow and then closer to the coast and especially down towards the cape may be some mixing. It does pose challenges for you. I guess getting crews out there on the right strength where the storm is. Right, so that's always a challenge to make sure we have people where they need to be. We really put a lot of trust into our regional directors to make sure that they direct forces as needed. This one, unfortunately, is going to be a tough one. You know, it's gonna linger along a little bit harder than we had hoped. It looks like I mean, tomorrow morning's commute by might be a little bit messy. Initially to start off might be mid morning. You're early afternoon before we really catch up in the worlds of all cleared, Governor Baker has asked as he does in most storms for folks to stay off the road. I'm guessing that would be a big help for you and and and the folks out there doing the plowing. Sure is the more room that we have to maneuver on. The roadway beats faster than we can address it. So we're continuing. Encourage folks that don't have to be on the road to stay off the road and again this afternoon and into this evening, it's gonna be really tough quickly, with limited visibility and high winds of the storm progressive, So we really want everybody to do what they can to be safe. Stay off the roads. Impossible, Jonathan. We get obviously You've been through a lot of winter storms before. It's a pretty big ones and sometimes on the back end. We get plunging temperatures. That doesn't seem to be the case. This time. We may be in your 40 on Thursday, so that has to help a little bit in terms of what you're worried about him on the back side of this It really does. That helps quite a bit. That means that we're gonna be able to give our crews arrest once this once. This does slow down and warm up because the temperatures are expected to be stable doesn't mean that there could be some slushy areas, especially again tomorrow morning before we get things forward and up. But yes, from a long term standpoint, we're pretty happy with the next few days. Whether that gold watch Alright, Mascot Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver. Lots of crews out there right now, keeping the roads clear. They could use your help. If you can stay out of the way That would be handy. Of course, Plowing is going on with roads. Some folks will plow their driveway. Others will use the snow blower but others it's the old fashioned shovel that comes out. Digging out, though that could lead to issues for the shoveler. Every time there is no one. The forecasts doctor Brad Weiss knows his office is going to be busy. My phone rings off the hook, sometimes for months at a time, people calling with injuries mostly caused by poor shoveling technique, which he says can.
