Have you ever been crazy enough to consider going to the Kennedy
School, while juggling two jobs as an attorney and a Boston city
councilor? A lifelong Boston resident, attorney Paul Scapicchio
MPA 2003 is a two-term Boston city councilor. Heres a typical
day in his life:
5 a.m. Change my one-month-old daughter Emmas
diaper. Check e-mail and voicemail. Wheres my coffee?
5:45 a.m. Drive to gym to play basketball.
7:30 a.m. Quick shower. Run to the Kennedy
School for stats class.
8 a.m. Call assistant. Reschedule appointments
we had to cancel yesterday.
9:15 a.m. Sitting in stats class. Am I supposed
to be here?
10:00 a.m. Stagger out of stats. Pay $15 for
parking. Speed off to my first meeting. Two hours with irate dog
owners? Why? Are they a statistically significant group of voters?
