Tonight Jim Braude (@jimbraude) looks at the big local stories of 2016 with former state treasurers Shannon O’Brien and Joe Malone, as well as Boston Globe business columnist Shirley Leung (@leung).  They’ll cover what happened with the ballot questions, grade the year for several big name politicians, assess the local impact of Trump’s win, and analyze other issues at the State House and Boston City Hall. 

It’s a big debate this time of year:  real tree vs. fake tree.  Jim has some strong opinions on this topic and will make his case on why it is far superior than the alternative.
