Folks who were following Newton politics back in 2009 certainly recall that now infamous moment at City Hall when then Aldermen Lenny Gentile wondered aloud why a citizens advisory group that was studying municipal finances, school enrollment and other factors kept comparing and contrasting our city with Somerville.

The project’s estimated [$257 million] price tag would top the $198.5 million spent to build the Newton North High School, completed in 2010 and currently the state’s most expensive school building project
