Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
Arthur Moore It’s definitely time for a change. The mayor wanted a walk and bike only city. The war on cars has been apparent for the last 10 years. Ward 4 is building apartment buildings that will not provide parking. They expect that everyone who rents there will use a bike or take the bus.
There are so many ridiculous proposals made without consulting taxpayers and homeowners who stayed in Somerville when many of the elite crowd were afraid of getting beat up in bar rooms. Now they are trying to make it their own brand and change everything about the city to suit their own selfish needs. When they are done destroying it, they will go find another city to experiment with and use grant money for business start ups through colleges. The west coast is a disaster and will only be a matter of time the same problems will be here. Many have gone to live in their second homes in NH and the locals in the White Mountains are telling them to go back to Mass and the don’t belong there.
