Tonight, Oct 30, from 7 – 9:30, Ward 5’s three local Area Councils (Highlands, Upper Falls, Waban) are joining together to present a Ward 5 Candidates Night at the Emerson Community Center on Pettee St in Upper Falls. Come meet and listen to the the candidates for contested seats in the upcoming election. The Ward 5 Aldermen-At-Large candidates (Deb Crossley, Chris Steele and Brian Yates), the Ward 2 School Committee candidates (Margaret Albright and Andrea Steenstrup), and mayoral candidate Tes Hess-Mahan will all be there.
The organizers of this event do appreciate that even though local politics may be very important, for many the World Series comes first, they’ve promised to have a large screen TV by the stage, so you can simultaneously get your fill of both sports & politics. Everyone’s also invited to head down the hill after the event for a post-politics pint at Dunn Gaherins … and the end of the World Series game.
If you don’t like walking home in the dark, then be sure to NOT park in the residents’ spots at the Emerson – they tow. Not to worry though, there’s plenty of on-street parking on Pettee St.
