Episode 84: Everybody Runs

33 minutes

5/29/2019-- While drama abounds in our nation's capital, Steve and Jenn are squarely focused on state-level issues.

But first, they discuss exit polls with MassINC Polling Group Research Director Maeve Duggan. Exit polls have traditionally been the basis for understanding what happens on election night. Now, exit polls are evolving in a big way.

Jenn and Steve are then joined by Commonwealth Magazine Associate Editor Michael Jonas, who breaks down legislation centered on education funding, as well as the current charter school debacle happening in New Bedford and its statewide implications.

Finally, Yawu Miller of the Bay State Banner joins Jenn to discuss the numerous contenders for this year's Boston City Council seats, and whether the activity surrounding the race will lead to an uptick in municipal election turnout.
