The Seaport’s problems were created during Mayor Menino’s administration. But solving those problems falls to the Walsh Administration.

Ironically, it is not because of the absence of planning, which the Walsh Administration has admirably done around several issues. Rather, it seems to come from their ignoring of their own plans and research, from prioritizing private interests over public benefits, and from bending to political pressure rather than holding to their own vision.
