The Word Around the Ward

Around 50-60 people attended the Ward 5 ResiStat meeting on June 18th which touched on topics such as the City budget, crime, Somerville by Design and the Green Line Extension. Held at the Kennedy School this year, attendees braved the flash flood warnings to hear the latest data on Ward 5.
Decisions will be made tonight regarding the FY2014 budget. The Finance Committee will be holding a 6pm meeting to go through each line item with a Special Meeting, called by the Mayor, set for 8pm. Both meetings are open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.
There are short-term and long-term volunteer opportunities available through the City. Call Nancy Bacci at 617-625-6600 Extension 2250 or email NBacci at SomervilleMA.Gov for more information.
The Somerville Patch has published a listing of all certified candidates that are vying for seats at the horseshoe this year. Be sure to check it out and begin researching your picks for both September and November.

There are so many fun events to look forward to in Ward 5 this summer including the City Fireworks display (6/27), as well as, Family Fun Day (6/29) both held at Trum Field! For a complete listing, check out:
