In an editorial, the Boston Globe criticizes the decisions of many Newton City Council candidates to stay silent about housing and development issues. This is a must read about an important issue. 

Here’s an excerpt:

“What happened to transparency in campaigning? It’s hard not to see these answers as just avoiding an important question, one that serves to shape voters’ view of candidacies, with a flimsy legal pretext. And the notion that a candidate can’t express a view on a question they’ll vote on defeats the purpose of having elections.”
