SORT BY Relevancy
Political Update's first ever radio show. Hosted by Christopher Devine, this episode will be around casino's in Massachusetts. Whether they will help or hurt the local economy. We will listen to live callers share their opinions and have an open discussion.
President Barack Obama's good buddy MA Gov. Deval Patrick had led by two years for some time. He was first to a major office, first in overseeing universal health care, first in supporting and overseeing same-sex marriage. Now he is not running for a third four-year term, so he'll be first to vacate his office.
Like crows on carrion, candidates abound here. We'll update you on the issues and the shenanigans in that flurry. As background, you can check on our channel here or at Left Ahead's archives page for interviews with all but one of the candidates. The presumptive Republican nominee, Charlie Baker, has run and hidden from us, while all the Democratic, independent and the other GOP challengers have spoken with us. We may be simple minded, but doubt that cowardice or avoidance is a good qualification for office.
The best known Dem challengers are raking in bucks and sailing along. The second tier Dems plus the independents and the one (Evan Falchuk) who is kind of in a party with his new designation as United Independent Party sole candidate elbow for recognition.
The best fun has been on the Republican side, with pay-for-play scandal, accusations of chicanery at their state convention, threatened law suit, and core party members disgruntled at Baker's socially liberal positions. Augment all that with Baker's association with the Big Dig boondoggle and his scorched-earth background at a major health-care company. The jimmies on the sundae are Baker's loss to Patrick in his previous run for governor.
This promises to be a most entertaining double race — to the September primary and on to the November general.

MA's Treasurer and Receiver General Steve Grossman joins us to talk about his gubernatorial campaign. He's been a straight-ahead official, as he was business owner. He put the commonwealth's checkbook online for all to see, for the first time ever. He's also famous in a lighter tone for his love of ice cream.
We'll ask him about his very ambitious goals — 50K new manufacturing jobs, earned sick pay for workers, all schools digital-learning ready by 2016, universal pre-K, applying customer-service principles to citizens accessing government, and more.
He'll have party primary opposition as well as a GOP contender if he is the Dem nominee. Of course, we'll talk strategy.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF PRINCE HALL FREEMASONRY IN MASSACHUSETTS
Listen in to Fieldstone Common this week as host Marian Pierre-Louis talks to Heli Meltsner, author of The Poorhouses of Massachusetts.
Ever since the English settled in America, extreme poverty and the inability of individuals to support themselves and their families have been persistent problems. In the early nineteenth century, many communities established almshouses, or "poorhouses," in a valiant but ultimately failed attempt to assist the destitute, including the sick, elderly, unemployed, mentally ill and orphaned, as well as unwed mothers, petty criminals and alcoholics.
This work details the rise and decline of poorhouses in Massachusetts, painting a portrait of life inside these institutions and revealing a history of constant political and social turmoil over issues that dominate the conversation about welfare recipients even today. The first study to address the role of architecture in shaping as well as reflecting the treatment of paupers, it also provides photographs and histories of dozens of former poorhouses across the state, many of which still stand.
Heli Meltsner, the curator of the Cambridge Historical Society, has been a town planner and a preservation consultant, undertaking numerous nominations to the National Register of Historic Places and historic resource inventories for municipalities and state agencies. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
