Description : Abstract
Christy George reports on the housing policies of the Flynn administration. George notes that Ray Flynn (Mayor of Boston) has set up successful programs to build new housing in the city. She adds that other housing policies have suffered setbacks. George reports that the Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled against Flynn's policy to set limits on condominium conversions and his linkage policy, which ties neighborhood housing to downtown construction. George's report includes footage from interviews with Stephen Coyle (Boston Redevelopment Authority) and Mel King (community activist). King says that Flynn needs to gather support for his policies from the Boston City Council and from state legislators. George notes that Flynn is constrained by the "home rule" policy. She adds that the city of Boston cannot levy new taxes or manage city real estate without approval from the Massachusetts State Legislature. George's report includes footage of Flynn at a press conference. Flynn calls the "home rule" policy "unfair and archaic." George's report also features footage of Flynn campaigning.
