Call in to speak with the host
Topic: How to develp an independent community
Host LaShawn Allen-Muhammad and Malik Greene welcome Kevin Tarpley and talk about how to develop an independent community.
Alderman Kevin Tarpley, the first African-American elected in Somerville, sponsored and helped push through a living wage? ordinance in his first term. Kevin has shown solidarity with many trade union struggles, both on the picket line and in City Hall, and has organized Ward 2 residents and local businesses to negotiate for mixed-use development and affordable housing. He was backed by SEIU 285, Ironworkers Local 7, Carpenters Local 218, Firemen and Oilers Local 3, and the Allied Painters Council.
It's good to talk.
