To the Editor:
The Inauguration of Town Officials January 4 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts was a joyous occasion. I saw a lot of smiling people that evening, on stage and in the audience.
Congratulations to all. The good people of the City called the Town of Watertown elected a fine bunch of people to steer our community forward. Four years ago I recited the oath of office for the last time as a Library Trustee. It is a humbling experience to swear and affirm publicly to the rules and regulations of the Constitution. This time, watching the newly elected officials being sworn in, I silently repeated the words to the oath.
No longer a Trustee after 20 years in office, as a private citizen I shall continue to advocate for the Watertown Free Public Library and for the special collections and programs that make our library unique in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
