Description

Roger Kineavy, a former member of Congressman Moakley’s campaign and district staff, begins this interview by discussing his childhood, education, and how he first became immersed in the political world. After leaving the Navy, he volunteered to help work on Moakley’s state house campaign in the 1950s. He joined Moakley’s staff and eventually served as the district director from 1973-1994. Kineavy also discusses some of the key issues in Moakley’s career, including: Boston’s busing crisis, El Salvador, and fire-safe cigarettes. He also reflects on Moakley’s relationships with other congressmen, including members of the Republican Party. Kineavy recounts the qualities that made Moakley such a great person to work for and the inspiring legacy that he left behind.
