Just weeks before our national election, one might have expected to see a lot of Hillary Clinton, or perhaps even Donald Trump, campaign buttons or signs at Newtonville Village Day on Sunday. And if not that, perhaps citizens campaigning for or against any of our upcoming ballot questions.
Instead the button du jour was the one pictured here, reading “I (heart) our current zoning.”
Dozens of Village Day attendees were proudly “hearting our current zoning” Sunday, including the folks staffing the Newton Village Alliance booth.
I’d like to invite anyone who was wearing these — or shares this view — to please explain just why and what they [heart] about Newton’s current zoning?
