Redistricting In Boston
Anyone who lives in Boston has probably been affected one way or the other by their city councilor. They’re the people you turn to to when you have concerns about parking, trash pickups, or, an a more serious note, an uptick in crime.
Well, your neghborhood's representation could be at stake. The city council is working on redrawing the city’s nine districts; there will be a public hearing today at 3:00.
