Charlestown Neighborhood Council Cancels Nov. 16 Precinct Elections

Single candidates in five precinct and a lack of them in precincts 6 and 7 made elections unnecessary.

In precincts 6 and 7, the current incumbents have chosen not to run for re-election. As such, anyone wishing to be considered as a candidate for these seats should contact Babin at 617-275 6868 or via email at barbarababin@comcast.net" barbarababin@comcast.net for nomination papers. Nomination papers with signatures from 25 individuals living in the respective precinct will need to be submitted no later than December 13, 2013.

If The council is NOT an elected body, then they only represent themselves, and should have any authority to make decisions for this town. Same council, different year...no thank you! enough of this! I will send my concerns on local issues to the elected officials in charge at the state house and city hall.
