I talked to four thoughtful and honest young folks about both their ideal and real communities. Take a listen:
On Jan 31 2018, City of Boston’s Community Preservation Director Christine Poff came on What’s up Eastie? to explain how CPA works in general and how its implementation in Boston is likely to unfold. Two community members also joined me on the show to add color and ask questions.
Listen to the show here:
Alex DeFronzo, a member of the Impact Advisory Group for the development, Magdalena Ayed, Director of The Harborkeepers, and Mary Ellen Welch, long term community activist in East Boston, came on What’s Up Eastie? to discuss this development and the community engagement process for impact assessment and mitigation.

Listen to the interview:
How do you get your news? What do you think about the quality of journalism today? My guests Jordan Frias, President of the New England chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, and Mary Ellen Welch, long term East Boston community activist, discuss local and city print news media. How has coverage changed since the time of East Boston Community News (1969-1989)?
Mary Ellen Welch is becoming a regular on “What’s up Eastie?” 🙂 And I couldn’t be happier about that. Joining Mary Ellen, were Magdalena Ayed of Harborkeepers, Alex DeFronzo of Piers Park Sailing Center, and John Walkey of Chelsea Greenroots, to discuss public access to East Boston’s waterfront.

I spoke with Nasser Brahim, Senior Planner, Climate Change Risk and Resiliency, at Kleinfelder. Listen to the entire show here:
We don’t have to tell East Bostonians that immigration is a hot button issue. On today’s show we take a deep dive into immigration and immigration law with our guest Matt Cameron, an immigration attorney at Cameron Law Offices right here in East Boston. Listen and learn more about the immigration process; you may also find that a few immigration myths and mis-facts about undocumented people are dispelled along the way.
Get connected to Matt and the attorneys at the Cameron Law Offices through the link above, and through the following channels:

Also check out the book, Guarding the Golden Door, that Matt recommends as a great grounding in American immigration law and history.
