WGBH provides an overview of Mayor Walsh's annual state-of-the-city address, in which he called for $500 million of new affordable-housing construction and getting Boston a seat on the board that oversees the MBTA.
StreetsblogMass reports he also called on the state to let Boston and surrounding communities add a surcharge to the sales tax to pay for transit improvements.
Walsh also called for closing the gap between a small number of high-performing BPS schools and the rest. The Boston Sun reports Councilor Andrea Campbell says the mayor isn't moving far or fast enough to make this happen.
