Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line:Where Are They Now?


Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,

Being an elected city council member in this day and age means a great paying part time job having to go to a meeting once in a while and learning how to ignore the people that elected you. We had one that actually worked and cared but is leaving now. Now we are back to zero. Look around, you see them a little before election now try to find them. And that is not because of the virus we can’t find them. They could never work on a real job like this, they would have been long gone.

  1. Arthur times like these pretty much sum up their usefulness for the taxpayers. Its time to think about reducing the Councilors to 7 and they represent the Somerville citywide.

    One thing for sure some of them are studying the budget during their down time readying the fight with the administration. They will be pouncing on all the fat and waste within certain departments.

    Maybe this time around they will cut back on all of the unnecessary positions that Mayor Bullshit has created that cause all the red tape and wasteful statics.

    We need more than getting rid of useless soicialist in Ward 5 to make positive change in this city.

    1. Now that people see what they have in ward 5 I think she has a better chance. Although her sexuality which shouldn’t matter may still play in that sadly. I am expecting to see a change in ward 4 which is needed. I like Bill White because of his expertise. The rest can go. Especially the new one coming in . My hope for mayor has left the city.

  2. Courtney O’Keefe posted on facebook that she is running for ward 5 next year. I am so happy we have a good choice.
