I stopped by for a couple of the Area Council sponsored City Council debates this afternoon at Newton North.  I’ll leave it to others to comment on the content of the debates but my favorite line of the afternoon was when Jim Cote was speaking about housing issues facing Newton.

I’m quoting here from memory:

“Newton is facing serious housing issues.  It affects all of us in all kinds of ways.

Between me and my wife we have 10 kids between us.  Finding affordable housing to move some of those kids out is a real quality-of-life issue in my house”
