Ph.D. Candidate Don Gillis Writes Article on Boston Mayoral Race for Commonwealth Magazine
Ph.D. Candidate Don Gillis contributed the first article in a new series on Boston’s Mayoral Race for Commonwealth Magazine. Dubbed “Mayor Matters,” this special series focuses on the issues surrounding the election for Boston’s first new mayor since Thomas Menino took office in 1993.
The first article in the Mayor Matter series, “Fair Play,” discusses the economic and social justice agenda facing the next mayor of Boston. In it, Gillis calls for candidates to “offer a road map out of the poverty and inequality maze by creating policies that lead Boston to become more equal, not less” and offers a list of priorities that if acted upon, would help Boston achieve its full potential.
