Ted Waldron III
I was going to write this involved blog and add links and rational, and then it hit me.
All three candidates are good people.
Okay, a little crazy, of course, because they’re dipping their feet into the political fire; but still – these are Newburyport citizens who want to make a difference and to work toward improving our neighborhoods.
So, I dumped the long blog and what you see, is what you get.
He is the only one that is clearly for historic preservation – which, if you have any clue about our city, is a primary issue in this election. My only misgiving is Tim’s “Bridge to Nowhere” statement about a pedestrian link from the garage over to Karp’s hangout. Obviously, he is not well versed on the subject or the attempt by just about everyone else to make sure the garage blends seamlessly into our historic Federalist downtown.
But his general attitude will only reinforce those on the council who are better informed.
As for the other candidates in Ward One; who am I to judge what they might do, or could possibly do; until they actually do it? There is not much of what they have said or done in the past to hang much of a hat or anything else for that matter.
They actually represent the very best representation of our city; and very glad they are making the collective attempt.
