The Word Around the Ward
Please feel free to fill out the new online survey about Ward 5 Online. I'd like to see if changes I am considering for the website will be supported by readers: tinyurl.com/llvkkrq
The Somerville Times has their predictions on this year's municipal races published in this week's Newstalk. It seems that longtime Ward 3 School Committeman Adam Sweeting is out, opening the door for new representation. A couple of names have been floated, but no one confirmed.
Happy Birthday to Ward 5er Ron Passerini who is celebrating this week!
A job well done to the DPW on their storm response for Tuesday and Wednesday. Although some neighbors were frustrated about plowed sidewalks, most residents were happy to make a new path for pedestrians. I have to admit that my neighborhood is looking very good. What some residents were not happy about were the large amount of parking spaces in the Magoun Square parking lot that were taken up by plows and Police. I heard many complaints while having dinner at Olde Magoun's Saloon. Feel free to voice your thoughts in the comment section below.
How is everyone handling the lane shortage on the Ball Square bridge? My own experience is that there is some backup, but that it flows pretty quickly once the light turns green. Feel free to comment your thoughts below.
Mayor Joe Curtatone caused quite a stir when he supporter protestors on I-93 recently. What are your thoughts on his comments?
