Boston Globe interviewed me about Newton government and politics

Just as I was finishing my final exams from my first semester of law school, I got a phone call from Boston Globe reporter Erica Noonan. Here's what she asked me:

1.  What's your assessment of Setti Warren's first year in office.  How
about the current Board of Aldermen?

2.  Some have used the word "honeymoon" to describe Setti's year, and
suggested the Board has not been active or aggressive enough in capital
planning, do you agree?  Disagree?

3.  What do you think will be the big tests of the administration in 2011?
This could be a financial or political decision, whatever you think is
brewing out there...

Erica tells me the article will probably be published in Thursday or Sunday's Globe West edition.

Hi Ken, I am looking forward to the article. Did they interview anyone else? I get the feeling Charlie Shapiro would like to be Mayor next! I also hear Warren is a real lightweight who is getting help running the city from Paul Coletti. When I called the Mayor's office yesterday to ask why no trucks were out salting and sanding the person who answered the phone told me, "We'regoing to look into that." Yikes!

Hi Ken! Excited to see the article - and hope benjamin is doing well these days. Any chance we could get your comments on this blog about the upcoming redistricting process? Hope all is well!
