Captain James, Quartermaster Joe and Secretary Steve start with a discussion of Ranked Choice Voting (aka Instant Runoff Voting), how it works, why Pirates support it and the upcoming ballot initiative to make it law in Massachusetts. We finish with a discussion of housing in Massachusetts, why it is so expensive and some of the policies that can help.
Don’t forget to register to vote, if you haven’t already. Voters who are registered to vote by the end of this Wednesday, February 12th can vote in the March 3rd presidential primary. Anyone registered under the Pirate designation can vote in any one of the four primaries. Check out our previous blog post for how you can register to vote.
