The Word Around the Ward

The Board of Aldermen will be back on their regular meeting schedule in one week with a 7:00pm gathering in the Aldermanic Chambers of City Hall. The agenda is posted on the City's Meeting Portal with 48 hours of the meeting time and you can watch the meeting live on Channel 22 (Comcast) or Channel 13 (RCN). This meeting will be rebroadcast at various times throughout the week, as well as, streamed live on the internet.
Primary Day (September 24th) is fast approaching, so be sure to read up on all the candidates and locate your voting place! 
The Annual Senior Picnic was absolutely beautiful with current candidates and incumbents out in full force! Not everyone showed up, but those who did were greeted with handshakes, hugs and smiles.
While speaking at the picnic, Senator Pat Jehlen asked that all seniors contact her with thoughts and concerns on the changes made to The Ride. Her contact information can be found on the City's website.
Many City Hall faces were seen at last Wednesday's Cavalia Odysseo Opening Night. Spotted, were Ward 2 Alderman Maryann Hueston, Ward 3 Alderman Tom Taylor, Ward 7 Alderman Bob Trane, Alderman at Large Jack Connolly, Mayor Joe Curtatone and other City Hall Officials. The show went off without a hitch and the entire audience gave the cast a standing ovation at the conclusion. Get your tickets soon!
Good luck to Mayor Joe Curtatone as he testifies at a hearing today on uncapping liquor licenses in the Boston area. This hearing was prompted by Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley who has submitted a Home Rule Petition for Boston. Mayor Curtatone submitted one previously, but only received an increase of 10 licenses for Somerville.

Somerville High School Cheerleaders will be at Trum Field on Saturday August 17th, teaching dances, cheers, and playing fun games. Girls and boys of all ages are welcome to join. The camp will be held by the basketball courts. The cost is $10 per child. All proceeds will be going to the Somerville High School Cheerleaders. The program runs from 10:00am until 1:00pm.
