On April 2, the Chinatown Safety Committee welcomed the newly instated president of Tufts Medical Center, Michael Wagner, MD. He had been serving as interim president for six months.

Afterwards, Capt. Ken Fong introduced himself. He has worked with the Boston Police Department for 27 to 28 years, and was happy to serve as commander in Area A-1 and protect the neighborhood.

There followed a presentation by Good Chemistry on a proposed Marijuana Dispensary at 57 Stuart Street. At the moment, the space is occupied by an adult bookstore. According to Chief Operating Officer Jaime Lewis, its principle is to serve patients. It is seeking a license to operate. She cited her previous success at starting a business in Colorado.

According to Capt. Fong, there were two major assaults in the month of March. The first on 800 Washington Street, where a female victim trying to use the bathroom at Tufts Medical was assaulted by a man all in black who snatched her cell phone and cut her face. He fled the area, and she was treated in the hospital. The second happened at 682 Washington at 9:27 p.m. The victim was pepper-sprayed by a 5’6” man with a slim build who took $250 from her side pocket.

 

Chinatown Resident Association

Leverett Wing told the residents about the American Association for Retired People conference coming to Boston in May. If more Chinese sign-up, they will have events in Chinatown and translators. Events will involve health and well-being, financial literacy and computer/new technology.

The Chinese Progressive Association gave a presentation on construction projects in the area. While many projects are going on, including at Parcel 24, 45 Stuart Street, 300 Harrison Avenue, 275 Albany Street and more, there are few Chinatown residents working at the construction sites.
