"Let's maybe walk to an next one of the challenges i think for radio is that i wish people could see what we see today. You can recreate this in a theater. And that's that's one thing. I love about being outside is that we can have a backdrop that allows us to explore things both thematically and also just the visually that we can have that we don't have to create it. It's their professor agassi professor gray. This is exactly how i expected to find you. My curiosity for the world cannot be quenched equality quality. We share brought you something. What is it. If i told you it would spoil your fun. You were always perceptive. Not always correct but certainly perceptive. There's a long list of areas in which my perceptions were valued glaciers fossils fish to name but a few louis. Agassi is a pretty controversial figure. There are some Revelations about research is done and things he did during his career that raise some serious questions about his legacy. Can you talk a little about what those concerns are right to. The biggest issue with him is his very troubling racial history of of his views And i and argument arguments. We made his his views are not different for the time there are plenty of racists in the mid nineteenth century in and today I think what is especially troubling about him. Is that one. He's particularly repulsed by people of color and wrote about it to his family and letters but also wrote articles and essays that were then used to support slavery going forward through the mid eighteen hundreds. So you're asking some really important questions here. That i think we're grappling with as a society right in terms of legacy and and whether things that were names of people who have come and gone how how we should see those names Can you talk a little about kind of how you thinking about that. As you're putting this together i was. This kinda came about by accident..

I'm sorry one hundred just over a hundred thousand of these bates from air We're we were flying at about three hundred feet so we're able to pretty much pinpoint where these bates are going And access areas that. We can't really get to from the ground and then this week where we're focused on ground operations so bathing areas where we couldn't really fly to get these out many people in their pets On the landscape so we share. The animals are going to eat them and second. What happens if the pets him. So i i'll let your second question first.

"So much more needs to be done Around ownership in boston. And you know we have planted some seeds and laid the groundwork for some of that with the down payment assistance that i just talked about taking that from ten thousand dollars to forty thousand dollars but there's also real opportunity with the aarp funding to look at this issue With with other monies that are that are coming and then just through policy and so We will continue over these next two months to again prioritize. The people of boston during my tenure as mayor and i would encourage my The next mayor. I would encourage the next mayor to lift this up as well. Homeownership is going to be critically important in stabilising Our city And dealing with the wealth gap and making sure war that the people who want to call boston home can do so for generations to come one. Eight hundred four. Two three eight two five to join. This conversation was gonna do this. Little later in the discussion mayor janey but because you just emphasize the ratio off gap because you talked about the populations in boston who are most vulnerable and housing who are most behind compared to white bostonians in terms of wealth and assets. We are in this moment where we had three black candidates running for mayor. You're the first a black leader in the mayor's seat in boston and we're now going forward with two candidates who are not black and are going to need to make a case to are black and brown communities About hearing their issues about being responsive to their needs being present in the neighborhoods. They're both women of color. But how are you thinking about that today well again. My priority is to look to the people of boston to make sure that they're okay. And so for what i can do. And this moment now is ensure a smooth transition of power to the next mayor who as you Rightly say is going to be a woman. A woman of color and it is also true that they will have to pick up that mantle And ensure that this city works for everyone that this city You know that is. It's not leaving anyone behind And so that will be true of any mayor who sits in the office And so. I am very proud of what i've been able to do as the first as the first woman. Mayor is the first black mayor for our city to move boston. Forward to make sure we were dealing with racial justice issues. Racial equity issues and It is certainly my hope that the next mayor will do the same..

"That's hundred four to three talk So staying on education and cove for a minute the massachusetts department of elementary and secondary education or desi released. Its first cova case report of the year last week. The data show that boston worcester and springfield schools log. The highest number of staff cases with aid each. Are you thinking that with this new policy in place that you expected to see that number come down and how quickly well we want to get everyone vaccinated. We wanna get our school staff. We wanna get children who are eligible to receive. The vaccine vaccinated their families. That's why we've had as part of our back to schoolwork linking up with mobile vaccination clinics many of the back to school events had these clinics right there so that people could choose to get vaccinated We know though there will be cases in schools and that is why there is a testing policy That involves Cic health and boston medical center to make sure that we can isolate any cases Support that student or Adult who may test positive While they are away Certainly test and stay for other school children so they can continue their learning. We know that this year and a half has been so difficult for our children in particular and their families that there is learning loss that happened. You know despite everyone working hard with remote learning that can never take the place of children being in the classroom with their teachers with their peers. And so we cannot continue Down that road. We know we've gotta have school children back in the classroom to make up for that loss time And get them on the road to academic success. We'll pick up on that from it and talk about school. Buses governor baker is activated. The national guard to provide drivers to districts that needed one hundred twenty. Two drivers were trained as of last week. And we've got districts from chelsea revere. Quincy lowell worcester That have accepted help. Boston is not taking that offer. Why well i mean it's we have done Pretty good thus far really proud that today we're at ninety percent on friday. We were at ninety percent. We've had The best on our very first day. We beat the five year average and we did that independent. We did that on a rainy. School day We've been doing the work To make sure that every single bus route is covered And so if there are other districts that need more support They should certainly get that if we get to the point where we need more support. Because we're you know. Continue to lack drivers or you know. God forbid driver's test positive for covert or or anything. We certainly want to take advantage of any health. That is out there but we have done a great job In getting on time arrival in terms of students getting to school As well as that that first day of attendance we broke the record. How do you get the other ten percent and listen. I recognize on day one. It was fifty seven percent that day to eighty one percent. Now you're at ninety. I know You know from preparing for previous conversations that that's not bad in comparison to pre cove it. But how do you get the other ten percent. Well they're they're you know we'll continue to be a challenge given the shortage Which is why we are doing everything to make sure that the routes are covered that we have a backup drivers We want always to get all of our kids to school on time And we know in a city like boston with old roads And lots of traffic that that can be a challenge And so you know. This means that we've got to focus on other things not just our school buses But traffic though through water city and making sure that we have.

"Kim janey and either michelle woo or a niece. ib george will no longer being service to the city. Either i have not heard people talking about the loss of that talent and brain power. Hot is the city. Think about that. So firstly kim janey and andrea campbell have done incredible work in the city so number one we have to and john as well have to applaud that and recognize also all the work they did on the you know the campaign trail to really engage black communities and all communities around the city so yes. It's going to be tough. I think you know the the the incoming especially at large of the district level city councillors. There's a lot of talent. There's a deep talent pool in boston. And i believe that andrea campbell and kim janey and john barrows will continue doing great work. For the city and also Folks like counselor mahia Kendra hicks counselor hicks. Maybe future to be counselor hicks 'cause they're still The november second brace but you know those folks are poised and ready to step into the the big shoes That these women and men of color have have opened up the space for them to fill before we step out of this and into infrastructure. I want to note. Boston is not the only city with critical mayoral race. Or one where leadership of color has been and will be front of mind. You've got Yvonne spicer in framingham. First black woman elected as mayor in massachusetts came in second during the preliminary to a white man in lawrence. Then you have which is more than eighty percent. Latin x preparing to elect mayor on an open ticket left by former mayor. Dan rivera somerville's looking to replace a white man who held the office for eighteen years. Either of you. Do you think these cities will signal change with who sits in the mayor's seat after november. Jim on to go to you. I i forgive me on this one. I just think it goes with the person with the it was refreshing to see framingham. Elect a woman of color. But i don't. I don't think that that's going to be a barrier anymore. There and i think that the change from joker tone to whoever elected there is is a good sign it just think overall change in whose representing the city's always a good thing. You don't want to have someone there won't even if they're doing a pretty good job. So i i really don't have much to save them and murray francis i want to thank all of the activist in the door knockers. This work doesn't happen by itself.

"Real one tonight was actually black woman. Let let could we are both surpassed all others and what that shows is that there is an appetite indeed in this city for change and i know my candidacy houthi ninety and i'm proud of that. I found that pretty moving and andrea campbell ran such an energetic and such a strong campaign. And i just think she makes a really interesting point and and it got me thinking because on the one hand one of the narratives that might come out of this race. Maybe it already has. Is that boston. Isn't ready still isn't ready to elect a black candidate but but maybe the narrative should be about the fact that there were three really strong black candidates. I mean we haven't we've never. We've barely talked about john barrels. I mean he's really extraordinary guy with a great resume. He just couldn't go up against four other people who had constituencies baked into their campaigns because they were city councillors But it reminded me of what happens when multiple progressives get into a race. And i'm thinking of the congressional district race the race for district four. Joe kennedy's old seat. There were so many progressives in there that they split the vote and Jake aachen class. A former republican in a moderate took that i think back to two thousand when the progressive vote split between ralph nader and al gore and that helped elect george w bush president. So this happens in politics and it and it can be heartbreaking. But i don't know if i'm qualified to sort of say if that's the real story or if it's still the story. Boston isn't ready to elect a black president. But i'm sorry. I black mayor but this is what this is. What i'm thinking and i'll i'll put the numbers out for listener so michelle. Woo had thirty three point. Three eight percent of the vote. And he says i be george. Twenty two point five percent. Then you have andrea campbell. In kim janey at thousand nine point seven four percent and nineteen point four nine percent which also just underscores how close the vote was between them and then john barrows at three point two percent so almost forty three percent of votes cast were cast for a black candidate and yet megan no black candidate in the finals. It is on. It's really interesting struggling to find the word here Steve is ella. Who is a poster with massing. Poland looked at some initial numbers in it does give us some sense of where people were voting for whom on in in the precincts that were predominantly populated by white bostonians. Most of those votes went to an isa's that'd be george and Michelle woo it in precincts where there were you know The white population was about twenty percent or less andrea campbell and kim janey dominated in those areas. So you know it is one glimpse of on how things broke down and where people Eventually decided who they're going to vote for on and it did break along racial lines you look at those initial the show numbers. I will tell you. Though that last night. I was struck. By how kim Janey and andre campbell handled their losses. And i thought andre campbell coming out At prince hall in growth hall Before her supporters talking about the opportunity she was given some striking very hopeful at tone i particularly about the prospects for future black candidates Was pretty striking in comparison to kim..

"Nineteen so let's move on to policing which is an area you've spoken about a lot. You came into a challenging situation with commissioner. Dennis white who you chose to fire One of the hallmarks of police reform as we discussed police reform policy at the national level. The state level the local level is transparency I want to stay in the candidate laying here also acknowledging that there have been back and forth with you with other candidates with the attorney general in your role as acting mayor round transparency in the boston police department as a candidate running for a full term of mayor what is the transparency imperative in police reform and what steps was must one. Take to get there. I have done already. And just weeks of being there. More to ensure transparency and accountability. And any one before me that is unrefuted we will continue to lead on transparency making sure we are releasing trial of our police making sure that we continue to build up the office of accountability and transparency. That we are also re imagining policing. I in our city. One to talk more about every imagining have to Do much more around community policing which also means we have to imagine how respond to crisis. I have Put forth and initiative of a mental health response that looks at coa response alternatives fonts and community we spot particularly as it relates to mental health. Crises If we'd have someone who is having difficulty due to an episode around mental health. We need to make sure that are experts on the ground who can be there as a first responder Who can help. Who can assist. Who has expertise in this field. That is why We put that initiative. Or i'd like that just a couple of weeks ago And we want to make sure again that we are responding appropriately when it comes to public health so that our police officers can focus on public safety so that they are free to focus on the most violent crime in a city And so that is part of how we imagined but least we also need more diversity. Which is why. I've increased their cadet program by fifty percents in in the fbi. Twenty two hundred. It's why we've invested in racial equity training for our offices we know that No boston police officers hard. We know that people all across the city do but we also know wherever we have challenges. You've gotta meet the moment and make sure we're supporting our workforce and that were moving toward safety justice and feeling in every single. Maybe so i'm going to take advantage of this opportunity to ask you another question because the siren sound in the background is starting to get really loud anyway. I do need to change gears for us. Because i wanna spend a minute before we let you go. That is the reality of the moment. I totally get it. Listen we're talking public safety right. That's right that's right by an ambulance. There you go buy. Yeah so so. Let's talk about one other aspect here which is homelessness and addiction.

They're just checking off with a couple of family members to make sure that everybody is on board. On that we will have another candidate who does not have political experience per se, like flying law enforcement officer Lifetime law enforcement officer who has risen through the rags. I happen to think Probably Mayor Walsh is single, most effective appointment during his administration as the as the police commissioner about to decide that he's going to try to take one step further and, um, add mayor to his resume. With the lack of political experience, Dan is that beneficial in this day and age or is it hurtful?

They're public servants. They're public servants, but what they're doing is they're looking for political office, maybe to become a stepping stone to another political office.

We had the good fortune of having some fine police commissioner's A Davis, of course, comes to mind. Uh, the heavens brothers and Willie Grass has continued that great tradition of law enforcement and I think that he knows the city as well as anybody. He's been around this city. And law enforcement of the city of Boston is is a very important issue, because frankly, Boston has done so well in that area than other other major cities around the country. I think I think that he's a natural, and I think you'll be a very strong political candidate. First time out of the box. Do you think, with William Grass jumping into the fray? Will that keep others who may have thought about running for mayor on the sidelines? I think it would force other people think about it. But I certainly don't think that the announced candidates Michelle will where Andre Campbell or maybe another one or two would back away because I'm sure they will look at him and say, Well, he's a police commission. He's not a politician, but I think frankly, that is gonna win no to his benefit being a police commission and someone with hands on experience.
