Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
Here are some questions for Mark Niedergang, Ward 5 Alderman, Somerville by Bruce B.Cohen
How many jobs have you created in Ward 5 since you have been elected to office.
What have you done to alleviate the high real estate taxes in the city?
Please list your areas of expertise in community redevelopment, experience education etc.
What expertise do you have and zoning other than being a self proclaimed zoning geek?
What have you done to aid many of the Ward 5 financially hard Pressed seniors?
What have you done to support SCOA (Somerville Council on Aging)?
You supported the city lawsuit against Wynn-Boston. The city spent over $500,000 on outside counsel. The results were a sad joke weren’t the city staff counsel is adequate?
You your responses to local situations is inadequate. The deplorable conditions in the CHA 112 Central parking lot and the length of time to renovtthe Hoyt-Sullivan playground is ludicrous. The Empire State building was constructed in less than a year.
Do you support an outside audit of all city apartments by a reputable accounting firm?
Why didn’t you and your cohorts send notice via email to all potentially affected property owners? After all you are very effective in rendering tax bills?
Awaiting you are non-political BS answers!
Bruce B. Cohen
