Newton Celebrates Mayor Setti Warren’s Inauguration
The the Inaugural festivities, Newton Coming Together, was a series of upbeat events with an emphasis on community service and neighborhood pride. Judging from the excellent attendance, citizens saw this as a welcome opportunity to celebrate together.
One of the greatest qualities of our fine city has always been an overriding committment to the common good. Newton is one of the larger cities in Massachusetts with a population of over 80,000 informally organized by neighborhoods which make up the villages of Newton. With these villages come the advantages of small neighborhood schools along with the luxury of economies of scale. The Newton Celebration was typical most city-wide events, and even smaller scaled celebrations, because many local organizations and businesses contributed. This outstanding attitude reflects a spirit of unity despite the many challenges facing our city.
