Check out this opinion piece by Newton Mayor Setti Warren that appears on bostonglobe.com (perhaps it’s going to be in tomorrow’s paper?). Headlined “How to make housing affordable,” our mayor writes about housing challenges for the shrinking middle class and how to “maintain Massachusetts’ reputation as an economic leader with a solid middle class,”
“It is time to make investments in both physical and human capital. It’s time to prioritize making higher education more affordable, investing in a statewide transportation system, increasing wages, and promoting workforce training, rather than requiring individuals and families to patch together what services they can to get by.”
It’s good to see him involved at this level but I suspect I’m not alone in thinking that the column sounds like the makings of a statewide platform.
