BROOKSIDE—Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren stopped by Ula Café on Amory Street March 13 for a roundtable discussion about the mortgage crisis. City Life/Vida Urbana, a JP-based housing advocacy group, had members there sharing their stories about troubled mortgages and foreclosures.

“We are here in Jamaica Plain because families across the Commonwealth have been hammered in the financial crisis,” said Warren after the event. “This crisis started one lost mortgage at a time.”

City Life/Vida Urbana has strong ties to the Occupy Boston movement, which the Republican Party has criticized Warren for supporting.

     That’s it? No background reporting? Obviously a Senatorial candidate coming to a community to recognize a pressing issue should certainly encourage “journalists” to expand upon the issue. This article does nothing more than state that she was in JP, and that mortgages are an issue. How? How are they an issue? What has happened? Why is Warren in JP? At the VERY LEAST, provide a link to someone who knows how to describe legitimate political events.
