A new district map for Boston...again

Download Audio

Boston City Council has finally agreed on a new district map for the city after a month of heated negotiation, narrowly avoiding potential delays to this years’ election.

This is the second time in the past year the council was faced with redrawing the city's nine districts, from which they are elected. This comes after a federal judge barred the city from using the previously approved map in early May.

Boston Globe Politics Reporter Emma Platoff joins The Common to discuss the background behind Boston’s new district map and what it means for the political landscape of the city.
