Special Election, April 30th

[an error occurred while processing this directive]  

Please come out and vote on this important issue!

On Tuesday, April 30th, the City of Newton will conduct a Special Election. Ward 8 will be choosing a new alderman, but the big issue is a proposed override of Proposition 2 1/2.

Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

As can be imagined, this is causing a lot of tumult in our ordinarily not-very-sleepy city :-)

The official wording of the proposed override, plus a list of candidates for the Ward 8 alderman position can be found here on the City of Newton's Web Site.

In addition, there are several web pages devoted either to the "pro" or "con" position. I list the ones I know about here:
