Town Meeting ’13, Session 2; Special Town Meeting

I take notes during Town Meeting. They are not official in any way. As I listen to people speak, I type notes. I’m sure that, at times, I mishear or misunderstand the speaker, but my notes represent what I hear at the time. I try to publish the notes every night after the meeting, as time […]

Elect Curro and Byrne – This Tuesday!

It’s election season in Arlington, and I offer two endorsements. Short version: Vote Curro and Byrne for Selectmen.  On your ballot, those are positions #4 and #5.  Be aware that the names on the ballot are very similar and potentially confusing – you want Curro-with-the-O in the 4th slot, and Steve Byrne in the 5th […]

A Week In the Campaign

When I started this campaign, I knew better than to promise regular blog posts.  As expected, it’s been stinkin’ busy.  That said, I know some people are interested in the nuts-and-bolts of the campaign (I got good feedback on this post).  So here are some notes on the last week: Thursday, 3/3 My plan was […]

Campaign Nuts and Bolts

As I’m sure you remember, I’m running for Selectman. There’s not a lot of definitive guidance I’ve found about running a legal campaign for municipal campaign.  I’ve slogged my way through a fair amount of it the last few weeks, so I figured I’d write it up here for future interested candidates. The first is […]

I’m Running for Selectman

With excitement, energy, and a healthy appreciation of the challenges ahead, I am announcing my candidacy for the Board of Selectmen. I’m asking for your support in the upcoming campaign, and your vote on election day on April 2, 2011. My campaign for Arlington: Arlington, like most communities in Massachusetts, is working through a very […]

Finance Committee Nov 3, 2010

Black text is mostly objective, red text is mostly subjective in nature. Chairman Allan Tosti opened the meeting and ran through the agenda. Article 5 – GIC Special Legislation – Deputy Town Manager Adam Chapdelaine explained that significant progress had been made on the GIC negotiations with the unions. He thinks the GIC legislation envisioned in the […]

Finance Committee November 1, 2010

Black text is mostly objective, red text is mostly subjective in nature. I’m in a hurry tonight, and these notes are more “raw” than usual.  Please ask questions in the comments, and I’ll go into more details. Note that we did not finish our business tonight, and we will meet again on Wednesday at 7:30 in […]
