News Roundup: Islands Call for More Vaccine; Local Reaction to Chauvin Guilty Verdict

S Junker

This week: the islands make a pitch for increased numbers of vaccines; local reaction comes in the conviction of a Minneapolis police officer in the death of George Floyd; and a State Senator wants to change the legislation that governs ferry service to the islands – and that sparks some heated conversations.

We have those stories and more, as CAI News Director Steve Junker speaks with some of the region’s leading journalists.

This week's guests include CAI's Jennette Barnes and Patrick Flanary; Brian Dowd of the Martha's Vineyard Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Cindy McCormick of the Cape Cod Times; Mary Ann Bragg of the Provincetown Banner; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; CAI's Statehouse reporter Mike Deehan and environmental reporter Eve Zuckoff.
