We have invited all candidates running for contested seats in the upcoming Newton election to submit a guest post to Village 14. The format and content of the post is entirely up to them.
City Council candidate Maria Scibelli Greenberg who is running for the ward seat in Ward 1, has submitted this column and video (produced by her son Matteo Greenberg):
Constituent Services has been one of my top priorities as your Ward 1 Councilor. Let me help you navigate the City’s permitting process, plant a tree in your berm, fill a pothole, or even help you hunt for a lost snake! I’ve worked with neighborhood groups to implement traffic calming measures for their streets and I’ve addressed safety concerns and improvements for our parks.
Local, neighborhood issues have been my primary focus and I will continue to work hard for the villages of Ward 1-Nonantum and Newton Corner. I have also been honored to be endorsed by the Newton Teachers Association, Progressive Newton, Sierra Club and Engine 6/Livable Newton. I’m asking for your support and vote on Nov. 5th. Thank you
