MEL KING suggested that 1/3 of the new 30,000 units of housing being proposed by Mayor Menino be positioned below the $75,000 per household income mark the mayor has set for the new properties. King said on The Morning Show at Touch 106.1 FM that the median household income in Boston communities of color is slightly more than $30,000. If homes are being built for people who can afford them it would PREVENT ETHNIC CLEANSING from occurring in the City of Boston.

*ENDORSED BY THE BOSTON GLOBE newspaper
Congrats to John Barros and his family’s newest baby! Mr. Barros has offered compelling reasons to elect him mayor of Boston. He’s a grad of Dartmouth College and a candidate for a Masters in Public Policy from Tufts University and has been the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, Inc. Executive Director where over 200 permanent affordable homes were added to the city’s housing stock.
