Newstalk – September 5

On September 5, 2012, in Latest News, by The News Staff

 Election Day is Thursday (tomorrow) not Tuesday. It’s unusual but hopefully between all the signs out in the city and in the media everyone will remember to go out and vote this Thursday, Primary Day. There are not many on the ballot but there are two races here that would be of interest. Representative Denise Provost is up for re-election and has a challenger, as well as two fine ladies from Somerville who are running to replace Gene Brune down at the Registry of Deeds.

Also, a former Alderman, Assistant to Eugene Brune and lifelong resident of the city Ms. Grace Abruzzio, who is one very nice and special lady. We wish her a great day.  Chris Siggins, a lifelong resident who comes from a popular family. Kristen Fournier, lifelong resident and Cambridge Health Alliance worker, is celebrating this week. Pat Roberto, who owns his own real estate company over in Everett, but he’s also a long time resident here in Somerville.
