As my law office waits to see if we'll clear this round of #PPP funding to receive the extremely modest loan we'll need to keep staff on payroll/benefits as our revenue continues to stall, I just can't stop thinking about this wanton pigfucker.
We couldn't even *apply* for relief last round bc @SantanderBankUS couldn't pull together a simple application process in 2 weeks before big GOP donors like Bennett started *paying himself & his dad dividends* from your tax $$ which could have saved 100 companies like ours
The three law partners in my office all agreed to stop receiving paychecks 2 months ago so that we could do our best to use our reserve funds & limited revenue to keep staff who does so much for us employed & insured. There was no discussion about this whatsoever. It was assumed.

1/ Proud to announce that I'm joining a team of progressive #EastBoston residents seeking election to our local Democratic ward committee. It's a wicked local #bospoli story, but I think what we're doing here really matters--and that you should try it too.

Yes, you.

2/ Ward committees are as local as local politics get. They are (or at least can be) the foundation of party organizing, and the aspirational face of a community. They're the closest thing to Jeffersonian democracy most of us will ever see. (Photo credit: @SecretaryofMass)

Working late again thanks to two awful Trump #immigration policies: #PublicCharge rule (scheduled to kick in on Tues) & the end of #TPSElSalvador in Jan.

We'd already been trying to get as many #TPS holders to residency as possible, & this new deadline has us all scrambling.
#EastBoston, #Chelsea, & #Revere are home to one of the East Coast's largest Salvadoran populations. We know from our clients & weekly visits to the consulate that reality is starting to hit: Thousands of my neighbors will begin 2020 by losing the status they've held for 18+ yrs
We have been able to process many of them for advance parole, a special travel permit which will allow those with immediate relatives who are US citizens or relatives to re-enter lawfully and qualify for residency. It's getting to be too late for those who haven't.
