Arline Isaacson, co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus and a political consultant.
- “The deal with Wynn means the casino company will chip in $6 million more than it originally agreed to give Boston. In total, the deal includes $68 million in mitigation funds for Boston, according to the city.”
- “The students opened their remarks by recounting what they say has been an increasingly hostile racial atmosphere at the school after the decision not to indict a white police officer in the shooting of Michael Brown, a black teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri.”
- “Gov. Charlie Baker released his budget Wednesday. While it calls for an overall 3.5 percent increase in state spending, most state agencies will receive little or no extra money.”
- “Vincent ‘Buddy’ Cianci, the colorful longtime mayor of Providence, died Thursday at Miriam Hospital in Providence. He was 74 years old. We look back on Cianci’s time in (and out) of office, and talk about his legacy in Providence.”
