Welcome to Centers and Squares
As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.
Watertown has posted the results of the town election of November 8, 2011. 16.65% of the 21,061 registered voters in Watertown cast ballots in yesterday’s municipal election.
Watertown Town Council Election Results
Incumbent councilors from Districts A, B and C ran unopposed and all were reelected. Angeline Kounelis, Cecilia Lenk and V.J. Piccirilli will be returning to the council. They will be joined by Kenneth Woodland who ran, without opposition, to fill the seat representing District D, currently held by John Lawn.
Incumbents also won the four council-at-large seats. However, write-in candidate Michael Mandel, who ran an anti-Walmart campaign (this is the first I’ve heard about the possibility of Walmart coming to Arsenal Street – if I lived in Watertown Mandel would have had my vote), came in just 91 votes behind the next highest vote getter, Stephen Corbett. According to the Watertown Tab, Michael Mandel is considering filing for a recount. You would think his strong showing – given that he entered the race just a couple of weeks before the election – is a reflection of many residents’ sentiment about Walmart. Here’s what the town council members and candidates have to say about Walmart.
Watertown School Committee Election Results
Three seats were up for grabs on the Watertown School Committee. Eileen Hsu-Balzer won reelection. She will be joined by two new school committee members: Michael Shepard and Julie McMahon. Christopher Beach did not win reelection.
