  1. What affordable housing is the city planning to give to the refugees? Long time residents have been forced out because of high rents. Look what happened to the residents at Orchard St.being forced out ! Look at the homeless people already in living on the streets. Passed a guy on Summer St near Davis Sq. Obviously homeless and all his wordly belongings with him. Nothing against helping people but take care of the people already here needing help. Shame in you Mr.Mayor!

  2. When a 4 time wounded war veteran asks the moator for help and is ignored that tells you what kind of mayor we have.

  3. I am happy and proud that Somerville would welcome these needy refugees. Taking all of them in to reside in Somerville might require a property tax increase or some new type of funding tax for these poor souls, but it is the right thing to do. We are a nation of immigrants.
