She's the NIMBY who also thinks nothing should be built in Widett Circle area due to global warming. A classic rich town person who wants to pull up all the ladders to their leafy suburb and demand everyone else change their lives.

By the way, has anyone noticed that there is a mafia in Newton politics that is about as shifty as you would assumed Revere or Quincy has?

These leaflets and the way land taken by eminent domain in the city for "open space" which just happen to back up to certain councilors houses could be ascertained as corruption.

I would argue Norton has been the single most active and effective opponent of housing access in Greater Boston over the past 5 years. She not only leads the NIMBY charge in Newton, but as head of the Charles River Watershed group she has testified against many major housing developments in the City of Boston and beyond, drawing heavily on her relationships with progressive politicians like Michelle Wu.

Provincial. Our city councilors have enough staff who run errands like this, when not dealing fentanyl on the side.
