Sunrise Boston

Today we’re talking to Jordan Meehan. I think of him as the “man with a plan” for progressives in Massachusetts. If you look at his website, he has these really well thought-out, comprehensive strategies on how to stabilize housing for renters, fix our transit system, and pursue equity and justice for marginalized groups, as well as a detailed, fresh look at what a Green New Deal in Massachusetts would mean. He’s running to guarantee people a safety net that has failed for some, and which others never had in the first place. His district, Allston, is a vibrant, young, artistic community  on the west side of Boston. Like you’ll hear, it’s an area that has grown tremendously in the past decade but that growth combined with a lack of public investment has destabilized the living conditions of many of its residents. These problems really could be fixed with the right policies, and Jordan has just the plan to do that. Check out Jordan's website at https://www.jordanforma.com/
