  1. Good article. One correction–the proposal was brought by the Watertown Housing *Partnership*, not Authority, and Fred Reynolds is the chair of the Partnership. Thanks.

  2. I was under the impression that citizens of Watertown do not have priority for any affordable housing located in Watertown. The statement from Fred Williams seems to contradict my impression so I would appreciate someone who what the priority scheme is respond so that I can understand what is true.
    Fred’s statement follows ““It is simply to make housing affordable and available,” Reynolds said. “If someone graduates from Watertown High School and works in a trade and works up to be a journeyman, they should be able to live in Watertown, not have to move way west or north and commute long distances.”
