Congratulations over in Medford to Adam Knight who worked very hard this year running for the open council seat in Medford. Adam used to work for Sen. Shannon’s office. His father, Gerry Knight, was a coach at the high school. We know Adam will add to the council over there in Medford in a positive way. We wish him luck. Medford residents got this one right.

The elections last week ended with results that were very interesting. New ward aldermen in Wards One, Three, Five and Seven, along with a new Alderman at Large. We salute Alderman elect Matt McLaughlin in Ward One, Bob McWatters in Ward Three, Mark Niedergang in Ward Five and Katjana Ballantyne in Ward Seven. Also, Mary Jo Rossetti rounded out the field as the newest Alderman at Large. We also salute all those that had the courage and conviction to run for public office. We need more to step up to the plate as our city grows and moves forward. Finally, to all the incumbents that were elected as well, a job well done and congratulations to them. What an interesting two years ahead for our city, it looks to prove to be exciting if nothing else. We wish them all a happy and productive time.
