Making the case for new blood in the office, Boston Medical Center physician Jonathan Santiago expresses frustration with the slow pace of change in the state’s House of Representatives, which has held up progressive legislation that sailed through the Senate, such as a recent school funding bill and a comprehensive environmental protection bill that aimed to expand the state’s use of renewable energy.

“I think we can do better,” Santiago says. “The Senate has moved forward, but the House has not.”
