Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line: Inspiring Letter from a Former Somerville Resident

Good LORD I wish I still lived in Somerville so I could vote for you. I graduated high school with Curtatone. He is NOTHING like he used to be back in the late 70s, early 80s. He has Somerville so fucked up it’s beyond hysterical! And I truly believe the majority of the decisions he made were done so because it lined his pockets. I still have tons of family and friends in Somerville and I will NOT visit. I fucking HATE just driving through there. I wouldn’t live in Somerville rent free….God as my witness.

“Write-In’s” A Great Voter Approach for This Somerville Election

Richard Scirocco

Within this lifetime, our city has witnessed and had the privilege to experience a half dozen successful write in votes that have won local popularity.

Historically, we have witnessed a number of successful Write-In Campaigns. The law itself governing elections set aside a specific line space to allow the choice for a free and uninfluencial decision of each and every voter! There has always been multiple options in which you choose your candidate. This means of action is an option of choice for the every day voter to make their voice heard without the undesirable choices listed.
