Here is the Radio Boston rundown for July 16. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • It's our Friday Week In Review, and politics around the state are just determined to be interesting. From a shrinking Boston mayoral race as State Rep. John Santiago pulls the plug, to a million dollar throw-down within the state GOP. We're also seeing COVID breakthrough cases everywhere from Fenway to Provincetown, which could threaten an already bumpy summer season. Plus, the roll-out of an expanded, and prepaid, child tax credit, and Boston's Exam schools make a controversial attempt to improve equity in admissions. We discuss with Marie St. Fleur, a former State Rep. and now principla at St. Fleur Communications, and Ed Lyons, a Massachusetts Republican activist and political writer. We also hear the latest on the Red Sox Yankees COVID situation from Radio Boston's Chris Citorik.

This program aired on July 16, 2021.
