Neighborhood needs to vote in Senate special election
It appears there will be no candidate from the North End/Waterfront neighborhood for the vacant State Senate seat and a special election to replace Anthony Petruccelli who moved on to the private sector.
Hopefully, this does not deter local residents from going to the polls to vote.
The new Senator will represent the North End/Waterfront area, so it is important to try to elect the best person to serve the best interests of the community on Beacon Hill.
It is also important to elect a Senator that can work with the neighborhoods’ State Representative Aaron Michlewitz to help serve the needs of the area.
Suicide fence on Tobin Bridge a good move
A tall fence installed by MassDOT along nearly all of the Tobin Bridge is clearly a step in the right direction toward reducing suicides and suicide attempts on the 2 1/4 mile bridge.
The tall green fence on both the lower and upper levels of the bridge will span the Mystic River and Little Mystic Bridge areas is designed to save lives.
MassDOT’s decision to place a suicide fence on the Tobin Bridge has been hailed by many city and state officials and rightly so.
ONEin3 Council present new ideas
The 2016 City of Boston ONEin3 Council has been established, made up of thirty young adults appointed to lead efforts to engage Boston’s 20-34-year-old population to address the issues that impact them the most.
Obtaining information and suggestions from young adults is an important element to help the City move forward for everyone.
Formation of this group is a great opportunity to possibly improve the city in a number of ways.
Reportedly, Mayor Martin J. Walsh is looking forward to seeing the great work to come from this year’s ONEin3 Council.
Youth are the City of Boston’s future and their ideas are imperative.
