just wondering

This is old news. Why would anyone be pushing a home rule petition for a position that already exists. The city has had a hearing officer for over a year. Jack Connoly was the hearing officer before he was elected back on the board of alderman. He has been replaced by Kenny Joyce.

You gotta love it!!! Didn't get enough signatures...what a loser! to much time in the coffee houses Carly or down the South End?

You are going down boy...and you will now have to get....a REAL JOB! Watch the PDERs scramble to organize a sticker campaign for the boy...Queen Patricia will be lost without her loyal lackey.

Dingo - that's funny. According to the town halls of Somerville and Medford, Sciortino got more than enough signatures.

Oh, and nice veiled reference to Sciortino being gay. I'm sure that crap will work wonders for Trane's campaign.

Speaking of our esteemed alderman from ward 7, we hear that Trane showed up to tour the proposed green line maintenance site and caused quite a ruckus on Monday. Apparently he was steamed that this site was being considered and wanted to know how this was proposed without his knowledge. We wonder where he was during the countless meetings about the green line. We also hear that he insisted that the maintenance facility be located anywhere but Somerville. We don't think that will play too well with the Medford half of the district that he wants to represent.

Wow..here we go. Now the PDS groupies are going to start slinging mud. The question Traned asked is why after the MBTA had plans to locate the train yard in Cambridge at North Point were they now looking to relocate it to Somerville taking away valuable land that could be used for development. Freeing up land in Cambridge for development.

He pointed out that the city already hosts a MBTA rail yard for trains that do not service the city. Sounds to me like a good question. Maybe he asked a question our wacked out legislative members should have asked. Way to go Bob Trane, stick up for Somerville

Stinky

truth - again, maybe if he'd attended any of the many, many meetings on the matter he'd have known which sites had been evaluated and why the planners had zeroed in on this one. Fact is this is classic Traniac - stay uninvolved until the last minute then barge in with a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

Ya, all the land that has gone undeveloped in Cobble Hill. Its only been there 40 years. Maybe when we see a shovel full of dirt at Assemby Sq.
The City can't get anything built. Homans bldng, P'House school, Pub. Safety bldng, E.Som school, the list goes on and on.

Fake

I know the Skipper and you my sir are Not him!
Get your own damn nick name you foolish bastard.

Congratulations to Cambridge for securing a 1 Billion dollar development plan in Kendall Sq.. Here in Somerville we have breakfast wars in Ball Sq. ! Can't wait for the tax free MBTA repair facility to open.

Good location near the tracks and square! But who's holding out?

Put it over at the Pat's Tow yard land by Brickbottom! It's a great location near the existing tracks and Union square already! It's in the center of Cambridge, Somerville & Boston! A state of the are facility would look 100% better than what we have to look at their now! Unless polititions are helping that powerful family that owns that lot to keep their towing company there under the radar screen! Let's move forward Somervile! Less bullshit and more movement! Let's start developing Somerville for us who can enjoy it now as well as for future citizens! What a great piece of land that harnesses the gateway to our city! Let's show it off better than this! Sometimes I just dom't understand why it has'nt been done already!

shhhh

thats where the new Public Safety/ Jail building is going. Keep it quiet, nobodys knows yet!
A nice land swap gives the tow company some nice location for a hotel.....SHHHHH

Dicky Bird

Well Tom Tom from ward three wants to put a skate board park on the bottom of Avon St. Why not next door to him at 32 Vinal Arv. on that big piece of land next door to him, taking it by eminent-domain? Or down the road a little next to the dog park?

firelady

can you put that nice story online. The story of the fireman Cindy that was in your paper. She is an inspiration to all.

why do people want to keep making more and more money if they are already wealthy. If its to expand to help others make money I understand, and help others, but beyond that, its a waste of time.
I am not impressed by greed

I hope the developement in Kendall Sq and with the money they make give it to build a new pool at the somerville y which is ancient, and also with any other money makers out there, help repair some of our public pools, like in Somerville Cambridge so that the kids who's families cannot afford to go anywher have someplace to go, that's a nice thought isn't it???? But that wont happen, not the way things are these days, I'd like to see some people really dig into their pockets to help others besides themselves
