Throughout the month of July, Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray are embarking on a 'Summer Conversation Tour' across the state. The purpose of the tour is to address areas of importance including jobs, education, health care, youth violence and other current issues. Tim Murray is scheduled to visit Arlington on Thursday, July 14th at 6:00 p.m. at the Arlington Town Hall
(730 Massachusetts Avenue).
July 14th also happens to be
Bastille Day - the French National Holiday. However, at this meeting no one will be storming Town Hall and sparking a revolution - just the opposite. It is an opportunity for Arlington citizens to voice their opinions and 'claim their right to self-determination' just as the French were aiming to accomplish 222 years ago.Vive la démocratie!
