This is the rundown for Radio Boston for Feb. 28. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Mayor Wu marked 100-days in office last week, and between mandates, protests and a slew of new initiatives, it's been anything but quiet. Today, Mayor Wu joins us to reflect on her first 100 days and take listener questions in our regular segment, "Mondays with the Mayor." We also talk about the city's search for a new police commissioner and superintendent, what she's hearing from the local Ukrainian population, and the protests that have plagued her and her neighbors.
  • A Massachusetts lawmaker wants the state to send a message to Russia over its invasion of Ukraine by banning the purchase and consumption of products made in Russia. He has submitted legislation to do just that, and it comes on the heels of New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu's order to pull Russian-made vodka off the shelves at state-run liquor stores, and similar executive orders from governors in a few other states. State Representative Patrick Kearney, a Democrat representing the 4th Plymouth District, including Scituate and Marshfield, is the bill's sponsor and he joins us to talk about what a bill like this could mean for the state.

This program aired on February 28, 2022.
