  1. Congrats to the peace candidate Steve Owens.

    I would like to ask what he thinks about these:

    The Chaz/Chop occupation of Seattle in which 2 people were killed and many injured.

    Whether such an occupation would be appropriate for Watertown and Cambridge.

    What he thinks of the “Columbus Delta” commemorative rock in the center of Watertown Square.

    Whether he approves of people tearing or trying to tear down statues they don’t like and what does he think of statues and memorials of George Washington.

    To what extent he would like to “defund” Watertown and Cambridge police departments.

    If he favors “reparations” for Blacks, what kind?

    Thank you.

  2. I only wish that a State Rep. could actually “seek an end to war” and “foster a more peaceful U.S. foreign policy” but let’s face it, it is just a promise and more like wishful thinking.
