This Friday, Tito Jackson will be sworn in as Boston’s newest city councilor, coincidentally on the same day that his predecessor, Chuck Turner, reports to prison on federal corruption charges. From the outside Jackson’s path to higher office looked easy: He cruised through the primary election and a garnered a whopping 82 percent of the vote in the final election last week. The bad news is that voters in Boston’s seventh district seemed strangely disinterested, with just 8 percent of registered voters turning out. Tito joins us to talk about that and his plans for the seventh district.
