Setti Warren is engaged a series of “lasts” as Newton’s mayor. In February, he delivered his final “State of the City” address. This past Tuesday, he delivered his final city budget. On May 24 he will host his final “Mayor’s Community Prayer Breakfast” at Boston College. In June, it will be time for his final Newton North and South graduations as mayor….and so on.
Although Warren will occupy the mayor’s office until the end of this year and is expected to officially announce his candidacy for governor some time in the next few months, what do you think will be his legacy as our mayor will be? What will you look back and say he accomplished or failed to accomplish? Is he leaving Newton in a better place than it was when he assumed office just over seven years ago?
