Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope you have had a terrific summer. It was a very special one for me as I got married on August 17th. Thank you so much for all of the well wishes. I truly appreciate it.

There are some important events happening right at the beginning of September and throughout the Fall that I want to tell you about in this newsletter. The main activities are the Somerville by Design, Davis Square series coming up on September 9, 10, and 11th. See sidebar box for more details. The process continues to be community driven and is focusing on a possible hotel in Davis Square, traffic and parking issues, and redevelopment in general. I hope to see you there!

In addition to all that is happening around Ward 6, there are elections being held citywide. Although I am unopposed in the election this year, I hope I can count on your support at the polls on Tuesday, November 5th!

Aldermen meetings pick back up again the second and fourth Thursdays of the month and you can watch them through the city portal by clicking here. These meetings stream live on the web (at that same link) and are broadcast on local cable access.

If you know of events or have announcements you would like me to include in a future e-newsletter, please send me an email to:

Best wishes,

In this E-Newsletter
