Jamaica Plain Puts Its Mark on Latino Gubernatorial Town Hall

Jamaica Plain put its stamp on a major statewide political event as a crowd heard all five candidates for governor tackle the issues Latinos want to hear about before Tuesday’s election. JP's Pablo Calderón, president of the Egleston Square Neighborhood Assoc. and one of the core organizers of Friday’s event, introduced Gov. Deval Patrick, who accepted an award from JP-based El Mundo Boston. The media company co-sponsored the Latino Town Hall with Northeastern University. More than 350 people attended the event, which took place at Blackman Auditorium on that school's campus.
