I couldn’t help but be struck by the two different approaches two of our Newton City Councilor-elects –Alicia Bowman* and Bill Humphrey — took to acknowledging Veterans Day in tweets this morning.
What do you think about this Tweet from Ward 5 City Council Council candidate Bill Humphrey?
The “can’t we all just get along, these elections are tearing us apart” people seem fairly naive about the existential struggle we are currently in like it or not. We can’t all just get along because we don’t all agree and we have opposing interests. You can’t hand wave that away— Bill Humphrey 🌳 (@BillHumphreyMA) October 26, 2019
Elections season is officially upon us. Here’s the NewTV/League of Women Voters forum featuring the three candidates — from left Rena Getz, Bill Humphrey and Kathy Winters — competing in a preliminary election to run for the ward city council seat representing Ward 5 on Sept. 10.
Lawns signs have started showing up across Ward 5 for the Sept.10 run off election between Bill Humphrey, Rena Getz* and Kathy Winters, who are running to fill the ward council seat currently held by Councilor John Rice, who chose not to seek reelection.
This is the only run off in Newton this year. Only registered voters in
Ward Five City Council candidate Bill Humphrey posted these tweets this evening in response to earlier criticism of the Mashpee Police.
Let's wait now for the investigation into the pursuit and hope it will lead to reforms. 2/2— Bill Humphrey 🌳 (@BillHumphreyMA) August 3, 2018
Just after Ward 5 City Councilor John Rice announced that he will not seek reelection in 2019, local activist Bill Humphrey has tossed his hat into the ring.
Thanks also to NewTV for sharing this video from the Governor’s Council debate between the three Democratic party candidates. The primary will be held on Thursday Sept. 8 between incumbent Marilyn Petitto Devaney and challengers Peter Georgiou and William Bishop Humphrey.
While this is not likely on most folks’ radar, the state primaries are one month away, Thursday Sept. 8. One of the only contested contests is yet another attempt to unseat incumbent Marilyn Petitto Devaney from the governor’s council.
This year, Devaney has two opponents. — Peter Georgiou from Lincoln and Bill Humphrey from Newton. Vote in our poll and — more importantly — explain your choice to large number of undecided voters reading this.
