DESCRIPTION:   During the first half of the show, host Sheriff Steve Tompkins talks with Jay Ash, City Manager of Chelsea, Massachusetts. The City of Chelsea is directly across the Mystic River from the City of Boston. Chelsea was first settled in 1624, established itself as a Town in 1739 and was incorporated as a city in 1857. The City of Chelsea has an estimated population of 35,080 and occupies a land area of 1.8 square miles. In August of 1995, the city implemented a new City Charter, which vested policy and legislative authority in an eleven member City Council and placed strong executive and administrative powers in an appointed City Manager. Jay Ash is only the second City Manager appointed by the City Council for Chelsea.
