Just downtown getting some help from the Treasurer's Office, again one of the better run offices in the City, and saw the latest display the City Clerk has up..If you are downtown, check it out. It has a bunch all ballots, pitures, etc. Very interesing.
The thing that jumped out at me was a ballot from 1973, or 1972?? It had a bunch of names on one side for City Council and a bunch of names on the other side for School Committee. There were no district councilors. If we ever reverted to that again and just had 11 open seats, the elections would be great. Creating district councilors and dual tax rates was a big mistake.
In the City Clerk's display there is a picture with a tag that says "Who am I?". Well, I got no idea. Anyone out there know.
