BRA Director Peter Meade To Retire in January

Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade will be retiring in January, stepping down at the same time as Mayor Thomas Menino, the Boston Business Journal reported this week. Appointed to the position in April 2011, Meade, 67, is considered a member of the mayor’s cabinet but also is appointed by the five-member BRA board, so he wouldn’t necessarily be ousted by the election of a new mayor, the article states. But Meade told the BBJ that he is not interested in keeping the job under a new mayor, saying that, “I have a relationship with Mayor Menino that frankly I would never have with another mayor.” Meade also said he had promised his family he would retire, according to the article.

According to the prosecution, the defendants and four others were among a large group who attacked three men and three women inside a parking garage following a verbal confrontation. The victims were leaving the parking lot after celebrating a friend’s birthday. A 24-year-old Brookline man suffered a concussion, a separated shoulder, chipped teeth, a hand injury and numerous cuts and bruises. A 22-year-old man from East Greenwich, RI and a 23-year-old from Warwick, RI each suffered head and facial injuries. A 24-year-old Boston woman also suffered a hand injury. The assailants fled prior to the police arrival, but a video of the brawl helped identify the suspects. Trong Van Huynh (D.O.B. 6/25/87) was arrainged on March 6 and was charged with assault and battery resulting in serious injuries, affray and disorderly conduct. Alex Li Lin (D.O.B. 3/13/85), Hung T.
