Somerville Walking on Sunshine

We’re walking on sunshine (and lots more, apparently): Walk Score’s 2014 ratings put Somerville as the 7th most walkable city and the 9th most transit-friendly city in the nation. We don’t want to keep bragging, but analysis of the most re…cent Census data shows that 12.5% of Somerville residents walk to work, the 11th highest percentage in the U.S. Census data also shows that 30.4% of residents take transit to work, the 7th highest percentage in the U.S. For more on our Walk Score and infrastructure improvements that have made walking around Somerville easier: http://bit.ly/1aukZ2W


Remembering Robert “Bobby” Campo of Somerville


By William Tauro

Our condolences to the Campo family on the loss of their dad, Robert Campo.

Many of us here in the Ville knew him as Bobby, who was a good man, a good father and a good friend who we will miss him dearly here in and around Somerville.

Robert was a former elected city tax assessors for the City of Somerville during the early 80’s during the Lester Ralph, Tom August and Gene Brune Administrations.

Robert Campo will be sadly missed.
