Description : Abstract
David Boeri reports from a press conference with Ray Flynn (Mayor of Boston, Doris Bunte (Boston Housing Authority), Neil Sullivan (Policy Advisor to Flynn) and Robert Laplante (Department of Housing and Urban Development). The officials attempt to explain the new rules for the Boston Housing Authority's revised public housing tenant selection policy. The policy is intended to end discrimination in the selection process, but will not result in the removal of current tenants from their apartments. Boeri reports that the explanation of the policy is very confusing, but two tenants in attendance are able to do understand the policy. Boeri's report includes footage of the press conference and footage from interviews with public housing tenants Jean Deaver and Marcia Langford.
