A New Year in Boston

[soundcloud id='20612347' color='#2a3590' format='set']
For the first show of the new year, You Are Here takes a look at the past year in Boston…and what it means for the year ahead. 2013 was a big year for Boston in sports, politics and in the community.

Boston hosted an election not once, but every few months. We inaugurated new senators, councillors, a new mayor, and are now we’re in the midst of campaigns for governor. In 2014, the city’s leadership is a roster of all new political figures.

This week was the first for Mayor Marty Walsh. He started in a position held by his predecessor for more than 30 years, and from City Hall to the Boston Police Headquarters, Walsh has already started the process of making new appointments. To start off the show, You Are Here will take a look at the aura of anticipation surrounding the city’s new leader.

2014 also continues a process of healing for Boston. It’s been less than 10 months later and many questions left by last year’s marathon bombing tragedy are left unanswered. This year’s event promises to be one of the most popular marathon’s in history. You Are Here takes a look at how the city and runners are approaching the starting line this time around.

As we look ahead at leadership in the city, one thing stands out about 2014. This years political front-runners include an incredible number of women from municipal and neighborhood leadership to D-C. We take a look at the progress made, talking to women in politics about where they see themselves in the coming year.

For the full experience, listen to You Are Here in WERS 88.9 FM in the greater Boston area or at wers.org, Sundays 7-8 AM.
