Alderman Tom Taylor Being Recognized


Please try to come to and also spread the word about the BOA meeting on Thursday, May 8th at City Hall at 7 PM. There will be a short presentation to Tom for his long service to the Board and our community. I know it will mean a lot if a crowd is part of this. He has fought so hard for out Somerville and that spirit continues with his health battle. He is a true inspiration. Please pass this on in all the ways you can. I truly appreciate it as cancer with its many complications tends to take the dignity from its victims and manytimes cause isolation. Please also remember that Kate-Sea Ragusa and Bill from Holiday Cleaners will also be acknowledged for their many and varied contributions and dedication to our city. As always THANK YOU!
