Episode 79: Polls, Trains and Automobiles

37 minutes

4/24/2019-- Steve and Jenn are talking all things transportation on this week's edition of The Horse Race, but before they do, they've got to plug the upcoming live show at an ACTUAL horse race, AKA June 9 at Suffolk Downs. Come for the race, stay for the puns.

In other news, the partially redacted Mueller Report was released on Thursday, begging the question, to impeach or not impeach? Jenn and Steve touch on Elizabeth Warren's response to this. Plus, they talk about the newest slate of 2020 hopefuls including the recently announced Seth Moulton as well as the Trump administration’s attempts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The MassINC Polling Group released a poll last week on transportation for the Barr Foundation. It found that a majority of Massachusetts voters are feeling stressed or frustrated by their commutes. Two-thirds adjusted their schedules to leave earlier or later to avoid the worst travel times.

Steve and Jenn are joined by Jim Rooney, president and CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Kathryn Carlson of A Better City to discuss the results of the poll as well as how the business community is tackling transit.
