This is the Radio Boston rundown for October 27. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- With wind speeds across Southeastern Massachusetts reaching 80 and 90 mph last night, almost half a million people were left without power today. We check in with Brian Gallant, Emergency Management Director of Sandwich, to get the latest on the storm damage and how folks are fairing as the cleanup efforts begin.
- Redrawing districts can have a massive impact on representation for everyone. And right now on Beacon Hill, legislators are working on a new redistricting proposal, something they have pledged to have on Governor Baker's desk by Friday. The emphasis is expected to be on increasing the number of minority-majority districts. We talk about the proposal with State Representative Michael Moran, who is the chair of the House's redistricting committee. Also, we check in with Beth Huang, the executive director of the advocacy group Massachusetts Voter Table.
- With five days left before election day, we are taking time this week to sit down with both Boston mayoral candidates to ask them our questions and yours. Today, we take listener calls with Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu.
