It was exactly years ago today — May 19, 2009 — that Newton Alderman (now City Councilor) Lenny Gentile delivered his most notorious City Hall floor speech…
The comments accompanying last week’s Boston Globe article about the proposed revisions to a mixed used development at the Riverside MBTA station, included two very different views of long-time Newton City Councilor Lenny Gentile:

What’s your view? Is Gentile “an obstructionist” or “a hero”?
