If anybody thought Jeff Seideman turned soft when he endorsed
the overrides, then you really should check out his letter in the TAB
where he once again sounds the alarm about Newton’s League of Woman Voters and its “dangerous effort” to form a Charter Commission.
First, Seideman warns, hopes that a Charter Commission might reduce the Board of Aldermen is doomed because the Commission is likely to be comprised largely of Aldermen.
Then he wonders what the League is really up to
Cliquish and insular, the League won’t tell the public it’s other plans for its proposed Charter Commission. It could be a runaway mess that drastically alters the structure of Newton’s government.
Are Seideman’s suspisions well-founded? Or is this just Seideman being Seideman?
