I was invited to speak for five minutes at Ignite Amherst last week. I told a compressed story about the city of Springfield, the 2011 mayoral election, voter participation disparities, and voter suppression. Enjoy, and check out the other provocative talks produced by Amherst Media. And some nice coverage on WFCR/NEPR.
