  1. Thank you, Charlie, for such a cogent yet comprehensive overview of the two Charter questions on the ballot. Question 2, in particular, isn’t easy to unpack, much less explain to a varied public, but you’ve done a great job.


    And kudos, too, to Council President Mark Sideris and all the members of the Charter Review Committee who worked so tirelessly over many months, through trials and tribulations of pandemic times. That their efforts bore fruit is a tribute not just to them, but to this historic moment wherein democracy is under siege from so many quarters.

    While things aren’t always smooth, here in Watertown we’re doing what we can to sustain this ongoing experiment in self governance — in service to individual and community prosperity and our cherished ideals. For that, I’m proud as punch.

  2. Why not just change the name from Watertown to Watercity? Much easier verbiage and less confusing for potential residents that are looking to for a home that is near the water and in a city.
