Our vaccine rollout isn’t working in Metro West
It’s not working in the Pioneer Valley
It’s not set up to work for Boston.

This isn’t working - and apparently doesn’t exist anymore Image
It’s not working for the communities that have been hardest hit
It's not working in the Berkshires - "By the time registration opened for people 75 and older on the MA vaccination website Wednesday, many Berkshire County seniors and their loved ones already had spent hours trying to figure out how to secure a slot." berkshireeagle.com/news/local/fru…

Almost 17 years ago, my Dad passed away. I think of him every Election Day. But this year, its a little different. Most Sundays, after my Dad passed, I would call my Grandma. She lived one street over from us. Growing up we went over to 28 Howard Street most Sundays after church
The conversations those mornings covered everything - from the homily and readings to politics - and the same was true of my calls from DC to Howard Street. Gram would ask about the issues of the day, which was funny because she was normally better read than me.
One day we started chatting and she mentioned she was disappointed she missed Meet the Press, because "that Tim Russert is so good and I like Joe Biden. He's one of us." I thought the line about Biden was about him being Irish Catholic. But I came to realize that wasn't it.

This is a great look into how utilities wield their power on Beacon Hill, especially when they aren't being pushed to do more by @MassGovernor - I have a few additional thoughts I am going to add below #mapoli
It's a small thing, but key. The major MA utilities will generally register their opposition at Committee hearings to aggressive climate measures, then make their substantive arguments in one on one meetings with legislators, regulators and staff. Outside of the public's view. Image
Advocates, other committee members and the public aren't there to refute claims. There is already a power imbalance in these debates as utilities are seen as experts, but what is too often lost is that expertise does not come without bias.
