The Word Around the Ward

The Organizational Meeting for both the School Committee and Board of Aldermen is set for January 7th at City Hall. Both elected bodies will formally elect President/Chair, Vice President/Co-Chair, as well as, draw seats and entertain speeches. The meeting will begin at 6pm.

New Register of Deeds, Maria Curtatone, will be sworn in on January 2nd at 2pm. The ceremony will take place at the Cambridge Street Deeds office (208) and will be administered by William Galvin.

2013 does kick off a new year and, most importantly, an election year here in Somerville! I’ll be looking forward to everything from speculation to formal announcements in the coming months.

Along with a new year, it also marks the beginning of local fundraising. Please financially assist some of Somerville’s non-profits and organizations and help them continue the great work they do.

Is being more involved one of your New Year resolutions? You can always check out the City’s Meeting Portal for meeting information, as well as, sign up for listservs around your community. Here in Ward 5, we have three (that I know of): Magoun Square United, Warwick/Clyde Street, and Hudson Street. Please let me know if you’re interested and I can point you in the right direction, or if I missed any!
