More than ten years after Brookline firefighter Gerald Alston first filed a complaint over a racist voicemail left for him by his supervisor, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court sided with him this week. He joined Jim Braude to talk about his decade-long quest for justice, along with Jesse Mermell, a former Brookline Select Board Member who publicly apologized for her role in the matter two years ago — in contrast to continued efforts by the town to appeal a ruling by the state Civil Service Commission in Alston’s favor.
