"Responsible. Regional solutions Mayor jane knows that the challenges of mass and cavs probably better than anyone and this is. It's in her neighborhood. And i will send with her to work toward more. Buy in from cities and towns throughout the region. It's not one communities burden to bear alone. it's obscene reveres. It's not City boston's we have to be together and and work together on that. And she's she's right about that but it can't just be displacement to to another community either and we need real coalition of we need a real regional solution and we need something that's responsible And that's how. I look forward to talking to mayor janey about today. That was revere mayor. Brian regan. He is speaking with acting mayor. Kim genie of boston a little later this afternoon. So let's get some more context on the situation unfolding at that area around massachusetts avenue in melania cast boulevard. Wbz deborah becker was listening in on that conversation with mary. Rigo joins us now. Deb welcome back. Thank you so i'm just going to start by asking you your reactions to what you just heard death. Well i i think he's got a point If if he did in fact learn of this through a voice mail and was not getting consistent information than i think that mirror rigo Certainly has reason to have a lot of questions and a lot of concerns about this proposal. and the you know comparing it to what happened in revere for covert and being able to set up Some sort of emergency services on quick notice. He's right he had partners. He had the state and in this case It doesn't seem to be the same. So i think his concerns are legitimate at the same time There are real problems in that neighborhood of boston. in boston has been trying for a long time to get other communities Involved in to get help and it hasn't Happened at this point. So mary rigo and i didn't discuss this down but the neighborhood around mass and cast recently put a stop to a plan to house people at the vacant best western roundhouse in the area correct. That's right Victory programs had a contract to use two floors of that hotel for up to thirty..

"To five five to join this conversation so then jim week. I kinda scathing column from joan monarchy in the boston globe saying that this was genius to lose and she lost it. Do you agree with that assessment. I do i think A couple of things. I didn't say before by the way the double thumb michelle wu and niece. Sab george had the same platform by by. No means are quite different. But on the on and kim genie i think that is borne out by the pulse I believe that she was doing better in the polls before. And indi- said the suffered some decline. You can also see in the district's in which she won and where she didn't place his highly as she might when one would have thought she might given the fact that she was acting mayor. I think there are a number of missed opportunities for her. Outside of her own core constituent bates in that is some of the conversations about a vaccine passports. I think frankly one of the things that stood out for me. That was really amazing. Was during one of the debate. She noted that fifty seven percent on time Bus performance was something to To brag about in the radio. Boston special episode. Just kind of go ahead and throw that in there. And i would say that. That's anybody who follows basketball northern knows if anybody who brags about fifty seven percent free throw percentage is shouldn't be bragging and that's how i felt when i watched just it didn't seem that she was connected to the issues in the way that same. Michelle woo was were injured. Campbell or in necessay of george so murray francis this other thing that has been on my mind. And i'm going to play some sound from michael curry the former boss. Nwc ep chair now head of the massachusetts league of community health centers. He was talking. You are this week. There's a lot in here that we could talk about but my emphasis in this moment is on the first line. All of the candidates in this race was super talented But it also means that communities that are looking to break the glass ceiling avenue. African american mayor will need to organize and be more consolidated in their approach. When this race has done john barrows will no longer be in service to the city..

"And the end of their has been all kinds of a messaging racist messaging around welfare queens and trying to put that on the backs of poor working women of color specifically black women. That was true in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s and there is a lot of that still with us to this day. That is kim genie. Who since march has been the acting mayor of boston. she's democrat and the first woman and first black person in that job. And so i think people are making false judgments that are based in this racist notion of what it means to be poor and so that certainly has an impact in terms of the willingness for folks to put forth solutions and policies when they think it will benefit are certain segment of the population that they deem being unworthy of that support. I can't imagine that what you say isn't true on the other hand it's odd because there are many many many many white kids living in poverty as well absolutely absolutely and that was true fifty years ago as well but again it was the painting of this picture that i think has helped contribute to where we are. Janey has been pushing to make boston's economic recovery from the pandemic a more equitable recovery. The underlying disparities are jarring according to a two thousand fifteen report from the federal reserve bank of boston. The median net worth of boston's white residents was just under two hundred and fifty thousand dollars the number for multi generational black residents eight dollars. Not eight thousand dollars. Eight hundred eight dollars. Genie is familiar with poverty. My parents divorced. While i was very young. I grew up poor with my mom experienced food. Insecurity housing insecurity by was bust. When i was eleven years old during the nineteen seventies battled to desegregate boston public schools which came decades after brown versus board of ed by had rocks and racial slurs thrown at me. My parents though always fought for me in terms of my education. I think the more we invest in children particularly in those early years. I mean there are studies that support this that child development from birth to five and particularly birth to three is so critically important. And if we really care about eliminating the opportunity and achievement gap that would be much more investment in these early years. Let's talk about the zero to three gap. Because academic researchers do say that a lot of the deficits among poor kids by the time they get to school language and cognitive deficits and so on they're already formed. The government typically doesn't get involved in the welfare of children until early education but if so many kids are falling behind at the family unit. What's the government's supposed to do. Well the government has helped create these issues in the first place in terms of denying who would be able to bill generational wealth. And that is well documented. People can throw their hands up and say oh. These are personal choices that people are making. That's rubbish these conditions in terms of the so-called urban ghettos that are largely populated by black and brown. Folks who are poor in this country. Those conditions were created by government. And so i believe.

"President john falco now she escaped those pitfalls of incumbency. We've had all these examples spicer romay. ot can Even kim genie. Why why did she survive. What feels like a little bit of an incumbent curse this year. Oh we'll just her. I mean there are several mayors like yes we have framingham in gloucester where things didn't look right for the incumbents last night. But then you do have races in medford in salem in brockton. Even to an extent newton though i think the margin was smaller. Where You know where these mayors did get through and some of it has to do you know by pretty wide margins You know beat beat their challenges even in just the preliminary elections I think some of it is It covert hit differently city by city And each city has their own unique issues that existed before cove it and ones that were exacerbated by kovic and. i think that you're seeing those dynamics. Play out You know differently in different cities just because you know even if they share a border new to cities or like and the pandemic affected each one very differently. So let's stay on that margins Question and you. You just made a comment there about it. In some wide margins in some races you were also talking earlier about how in somerville the third place finisher was really quite close to making those top two in the top to the top. Two were separated by only about three hundred votes in lynn michael sadder white. Who didn't make the cut was only about three hundred votes out of the running there. I noticed fewer than three hundred votes separated andrea campbell. In kim janey in boston even though they both lagged in isa's ib george by closer to three thousand votes. Chris that makes me think back to two years ago. When in boston councilor at large. Julia mahia edged out. Ellie hundred saint yan by one vote so votes matter in these local races. How good are the turn. Get out the vote engines and are there lessons out of this preliminary about the importance of getting people to the polls. I think people had hoped ends I will bring this back to boston for a bet that you know. People had hoped really for a higher. Turn out in the turnout in boston. For instance ended up being lower than in the last open seat race in two thousand thirteen. So i think people are thinking a lot today about turnout about get out the vote efforts. About what more they can do. I mean it's it's gotta be painful for some of these people to lose by so few votes In tino that to know that just a few more could have made the difference of so..

"I refuse to believe that residents are dealing with the crises. As we're seeing. They're only get worse than the city of boston that they have to wait for the next election to get action from the acting. Man the administration on those critical issues and that isn't just about quality of life issues of course for those residents it also is the folks who are dealing with substance use disorder and homelessness that we have to help and then lastly we can close the gap when it comes to housing. Affordability are boston public schools as well as of course economic opportunity generally and i've put out some very thoughtful plans on how to do that with very specific things which will never cover and fifteen minutes. My very specific things that folks can of course visit at my website to learn a lot more. Yes and we will. We're going to dive into some of those issues that you just listed. I do want to start with kovic. I heard somebody say earlier in the pandemic. it's not just the elephant in the room. It's the room and right now. It still feels like it is earlier. This month acting boston miracle janey mandated that all city employees be vaccinated. You have said you called for such a mandate. You did it at the end of july. Is this a case of acting mayor. Kim genie was too late. Or is this a case of better late than never from your perspective. She was too late and she still late. And i want to stress that my pushing back on the acting. Mayor is about accountability in leadership. It's not personal so i continue to exercise leadership. Not only. that's distinct. From the acting. Mayor every candidate i have recognized that this delta variant is causing severe cases of kovin. An uptick including of boston are infection. Rate is going up and we of course want to make sure our vaccination rate is going up and you want to make sure we're protecting our residents so i exercise leadership of for months saying not only should city employees be required to get vaccinated or go through a regular testing but we should also push our employers in many others to do the same and that the city of boston has to put out guidelines on that. The acting mayor has yet to do that. And i'm also pushing the acting man administration to do what new york city's doing which is to offer incentives of course for folks to get vaccinated and require proof in crowded public indoor spaces which is critical if we're going to stay ahead of the curve on these issues and if we don't we're going to set back our progress and of course that hinders our economic prosperity and. I don't wanna see that happened in the city of boston. You've said it's not personal the way you have criticized acting mayor janey for how. She's handled kobe. But it's been frequent and it's been targeted to the acting mayor. Has she done anything right in her handling of kobe since she took over the office. And if so what. It isn't personal. Just as when marty was the mary always of course held him accountable. And i would hold anyone accountable. What distinctions i'm trying to make..

"Federal level. We need to hold our leaders accountable to implementing the solutions today. There are no shortage of solutions and proposals. To address us.

That's what we're gonna talk about after the break. We will take your calls on that eight hundred four two three eight two five. I'm on during. This is radio boston's week in review. Welcome back to radio. Boston's week in review. I am tci during with us. This week marie francis rivera president of the massachusetts budget and policy center and charlie chip yo a senior fellow at the pioneer institute. And we are going to talk about the intersection of cova policy and politics swift movement towards masking indoors vaccine mandates by many employers. Have you changed your view on anything from last week to this week or from two weeks ago to this week. Do you approve of acting mayor kim genie's decision to require vaccines for boston. City workers or do you prefer governor. Charlie baker's carrot approach to vaccinations boosters now on the table for the immuno-compromised what are your reactions to that one. Eight hundred four two three eight two five five. That's one eight hundred four to three talk to join the conversation. You can also tweet us at radio. Boston okay charlie. Let's start with one of the questions. I just asked the listeners has anything in your mind. Changed about covert policy in any way over the last couple of weeks. I wonder if delta has you thinking differently at all you know. I have to say the answer to that is yes What's happened with me. Is that i think that and i think this really is a very this is not a you know a very rational thing in a way but you know it's i have become increasingly angry simply because of the fact that i believe that you know the delta verion is what it is but the fact of the matter is you know. I was just looking at some numbers from mississippi. You know ninety. Seven percent of the people who are in the hospital in mississippi are not backs in it in the fact that matters the delta variant would have an impact no matter what but but if everyone were vaccinated. This impacting what we are going through. Right now would be far less severe. And i'm just playing angry because this is so avoidable. We just shouldn't have to go through this. Any more selfishly. I'm tired of the masks. I'm tired of. I'm tired of now. You know when. I go into to to boston Dare to a week. You know walking around and having it be a ghost. How it's depressing. It doesn't need to be that way. And frankly the impact It's had on me is that it's made me much more open to to more aggressive moves. you to make sure that people are are vaccinated.

"This is radio boston anti-sihanouk daring and we're reviewing week included mandates today tensions around what to require when creating some fascinating drama governor baker wants to keep it simple and voluntary when it comes to wear and when to wear a mask. Don't pay attention to the county bay stuff unless you want to. The most important thing is where mask. If you're going to be around somebody who's vulnerable where you are vulnerable yourself. That's a lack leaner and a lot simpler a lot straightforward for somebody to understand. Meanwhile acting boston mayor. Kim genie stan. Well pretty much everybody with this pushback on the idea of a citywide vaccine mandate. There's a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers whether we're talking about during slavery post slavery We heard trump with the birth certificate. Nonsense she walked it back. I wish i had not used those analogies because they took away from the important issue of ensuring that our vaccination and public health policies are implemented with fairness and equity but it is clear that debates on vaccine mandates fully on us and one key proving ground right now sports the patriots bill.
