Baker Making An Unprecedented Bid For A Third Term?
A new report from The Boston Globe details the governor’s quiet preparations for a potential run in 2022. If he goes through with it, he would be the first governor in the state’s history to seek three consecutive four-year terms. Gov. Charlie Baker has famously enjoyed high polls numbers while in office, but will voters buy his argument that he needs another term to improve things like the MBTA, traffic, education, and housing? And how will he thread the needle as the state GOP grows increasingly conservative in a blue state?
In for Jim Braude, Adam Reilly was joined by former Republican candidate for Secretary of State Anthony Amore, former Democratic congressional candidate and former CEO of the 2012 DNC Steve Kerrigan, and Boston Globe correspondent Frank Phillips.
The Changing Face Of Harvard Square
Harvard Square is no stranger to change, but the historic neighborhood seems to be undergoing a particularly fast overturn, with more than 10 percent of retail spaces currently vacant. The empty buildings add to the list of local places that are now memories of the past: the Harvard Square Theater, Tealuxe and Crema Café.
In for Jim Braude, Adam Reilly was joined by Denise Jillson, executive director of the Harvard Square Business Association, Cathy Botindari, co-owner of Colonial Drug, which moved to Newton in 2013 after 60 years in the Square, and Shoshanah Garber, the owner of Black Sheep Bagels, which opened in the Square last summer.
