Boston Redevelopment Authority Gets New Leader

By Anthony Silva, WBZ NewsRadio 1030

BOSTON (CBS) — A well-known community leader and former Blue Cross executive is the new head of the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

Peter Meade, a former WBZ radio talk show host, has been named to lead the BRA, as the authority faces a host of challenges.

Meade takes over the BRA as the city works out details of more than 200 redevelopment projects across the city, and continued growth of the massive South Boston Waterfront and Business District.

    He will fit right in. Both the BRA and the Boston Housing Authority are full of political hacks who “work from home” and drink heavily.

    Let’s see, they hire a guy with health care and radio experience to head up a community planning organization. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I suppose he negotiated a huge golden parachute that will net him millions of dollars when he eventually leaves this job.
