Think About It

When the Everett City Council meets twice monthly the cameras are on the members and so they all tend to want to speak – to the cameras.

This means that for each item on a 50 item agenda, there will be 550 short speeches.

Most of the items on the agenda aren’t worth speaking about in any meaningful way.

The president of the council Peter Napolitano should lean on his membership to skip the 11 speech minimum for each item on the agenda.

Either that, or shut off the cameras and then everyone will want to go home earlier.

Easter and Passover

Easter is about the resurrection.

Passover is about the Jews delivery from slavery and oppression in Egypt.

Both holidays, in their totality, are all about hope and freedom, spirituality and soaring hopes as well as somber remembrances of the past.

In this world we live in which has been turned upside down by so much that once was so important seeming to mean so little we can rejoice, even for a moment, about Easter and Passover.

Have a great meal, surround yourself with family, have a few thoughtful private moments and then smell the roses.

From us here at the Leader Herald we wish you all, all our readers and advertisers and everyone we reach in this shrinking world of ours, a very healthy, happy prosperous holiday.

Amen.

JAY ASH TOURS EVERETT BUSINESSES

Senator Sal DiDomenico had the pleasure of bringing Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash to Everett this week for a walking tour of Everett Square. During their time in the square they met with representatives of local businesses including Everett Bank, Dempsey’s Breakfast and Lunch, the Square Deli, Now Business Intelligence, the Everett Chamber of Commerce and Messinger Insurance. It was a great opportunity to connect with local businesses and entrepreneurs and showcase all that Everett has to offer!

Secretary Ash has been visiting cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth to see how his agencies can partner with our communities and bring resources to our downtown areas.
