Everett Arrests by EPD 11/13-11/19

A Saugus man, 20, was arrested for failure to appear on an outstanding warrant from the district court.

A Roxbury man, 50, was arrested for shoplifting items worth more than $250.

A Medford man, 50, was arrested for driving with a suspended license, for failure to stop and yield to a police officer and for the failure to appear on an outstanding warrant with the district court.

A comprehensive review of municipal election voting figures for Nov. 7

Leader Herald Staff

The Leader Herald reported the unofficial election result numbers, which were lower than the actual official count.

• Turnout was actually higher, around 4,892 voters. This is much closer to the 2019 election results, where turnout was 5,001 voters, which was another year where there was no competitive mayoral race on the ballot. (For comparison, 2017 turnout was 4,334).

• This is an important distinction because some are trying to dismiss the election results, or minimize their importance, based on “unusually low turnout.” Turnout was not unusually low. It was consistent with similar local election results in recent history. It is only “low” in comparison to competitive mayoral elections or state/national elections, which have drawn more turnout than municipal elections for decades and decades.

• Based on a voter file analysis of the 4,892 voters who turned out last Tuesday, an astounding 56% were women. This is definitely statistically much higher than usual. (Normally it’s more of a 51/49 or 52/48 percent split in favor of women). It’s not difficult to imagine why, after the way the superintendent and some women elected officials like Samantha Lambert have been treated over the last two years, women turned out in higher numbers than usual and voted the way they did.

Around the city…

Christmas Tree and holiday lights at Wehner Park.

Christmas approaching!

Christmas isn’t just approaching. It is barreling down on us like a runaway freight train.

Christmas music can already be heard on radio stations. Christmas trees have been for sale locally for about ten days.

It is not the end of November and Christmas is already upon us.

The city will be having the traditional Christmas Tree Lighting celebration on December 1, from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in Everett Square.

The mayor and his family will be there to throw the switch, as they say, that lights the lights that so many residents take pleasure in seeing.

This Christmas season will prove to be the most costly in decades for all our residents, what with inflation – but inflation doesn’t do very much to dim the spirit that comes with Christmas.

See you at the Christmas Tree Lighting in Everett Square – and let’s all try to be very grateful that we’re all here to celebrate the holiday.
