No this isn’t some sort of werewolf thing. Rather, Newton’s Board of Aldermen are scheduled to take up Alderman Emily Norton’s proposal to adopt the more gender-neutral title City Councillor tonight.*
Since the item was originally proposed it has been expanded to include changing School Committeeman to School Committee Member and Chairman to Chair.
*Technically, I believe the change if approved, would need to be approved by the State Legislature as well because, well, this is Massachusetts.
