The first segment of May 2nd’s WCVB On The Record Sunday Roundtable with anchors Ed Harding and Janet Wu. Mary Anne Marsh and Rob Gray discuss what the latest census means for Massachusetts politics. The Bay State did not lose any seats in the House of Representatives this time around, but there are questions as to whether it is inevitable in the future.
Also, is Acting Mayor Kim Janey on a fast track to becoming the next elected Mayor? When Janey went on the record to discuss whether she should drop the word “Acting” from her title, she wanted to make it clear that she was “doing the work” to earn the title of Mayor.
Next, Attorney General Maura Healey claims that the COVID-19 Vaccine should be a requirement for all public workers. However, Governor Baker disagrees. In the light of claims that Massachusetts has mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic, could vaccine mandates become a keystone topic for the next Governor’s race?
Finally, District Attorney Rachel Rollins is on the short list for Boston’s next US Attorney. If she gets the job, who should Governor Baker appoint to serve in her place until the next election?
