Letter to the Editor: RE Broken Elevator at 167 Holland Street

Dear Somerville News Weekly,

I am writing to you with a big complaint regarding the elevator that’s located at 167 Holland Street in Somerville in the building that houses the Somerville Council on Aging.

The one and only elevator has been out of service for over two weeks now to date.

How are we supposed to go to our programs with the elevator out?

It seems like its falling on deaf ears and that nobody at city hall cares about us elders regarding this situation.

How are we supposed to climb those massive stairs when most of us can’t hardly walk?

Please print this letter because we are counting on you as always to get this message out for us. Please don’t fail us now.
