The Word Around The Ward
It's coming down to the homestretch for candidates depending on November 4th votes to further their political dreams! I'd like to wish all candidates the best of luck and encourage everyone to get out and vote. Ward 5 voting information is easily found on this website and ballots have been posted by the Elections Department in Somerville.
Crafters, bakers and other vendors are needed for the annual Somerville Craft Fair held at Somerville High School this year. If you have items to sell, you can find more information and/or purchase a table online! The 24th Annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be held on Saturday November 29, 2014 from 9:00am-3:00pm at the Somerville High School Field House (81 Highland Ave). Admission is free to the general public.
As the cold air begins to creep into Somerville, political talk starts to heat up. If you believe what you year (...er...read), it sounds like no one in City Hall is safe. The latest is that two wards will be completely up for grabs as one Alderman will be aiming for the Mayor's seat while another will not be running for reelection. Opponents will be stepping up in all other wards with three in Ward 3. We're up to four being rumored for Alderman-At-Large seats. This should be fun!
Could an old Somerville employee be heading up the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation Department? The Word Around The Ward is that Monica Lamboy will be tapped to be the interim director as current director Susan Clippinger announced her November 14th retirement date. Monica is the former head of the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development.
