The first segment of March 28th’s WCVB On The Record Sunday Roundtable. Mary Anne Marsh and Rob Gray discuss Governor Baker’s vaccine rollout. One of the OTR roundtable analysts argues that the governor deserves some credit, while another says the race to quantity sacrificed equity.
Also in this segment, continuing the conversation of hate crimes against the AAPI community. After listening to remarks from Massachusetts State Rep. Tram Nguyen, Ed Harding asks if racism against Asian Americans will finally get appropriate attention.
Next, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey calls out Governor Baker, who paid notorious consulting giants McKinsey and Company to examine Boston’s post-pandemic business climate. McKinsey and Company came under fire recently for helping fuel the opioid crisis along with major pharmaceutical companies.

Meanwhile, Rob Gray considers the political optics of the AG challenging the Governor head-on.
Finally in this section, Kim Janey becomes the Mayor of Boston. With no white males currently in the candidate pool, is Boston looking at a future of diversity in leadership?
