Leave it to Charlie to create demand for public transportation while continuing to ignore fixing the system itself.
95% I will completely sh*t all over Charlie. But, his administration has been able to walk and chew gum on the issue of the T. Eventually they’ll get to the issues as Alewife. But overall he hasn’t been horrible. Point out where I’m shortsighted.

And how many Governors have kicked the can down the road on that? And did you ever think that some of those delays were from the winner and still champion Allston-Brighton NIMBY’s?

Both of your sentences = Wut????????

Baker has been the Governor for the last 7 years. The previous Governors weren't around when the Turnpike straightening was as imminent (Before Harvard bought up much of Allston). You're first question is akin to asking why Gov. Volpe didn't have a Climate Change policy. But even with that, THIS happened 4 months before Baker swept into office and suffocated the prospects of West Station for another 2+ decades...........


And you, obviously, are confusing "Allston Nimby's" for "Stephanie Pollack/Charlie Baker" regarding the subject of West Station:

" AMID STRONG PUSHBACK from neighborhood activists and others, Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack on Monday defended the Baker administration’s decision to put off until at least 2040 the construction of a new transit station serving an emerging neighborhood being developed by Harvard University in Allston........"

Let's be careful with the facts out there, King.
