Share Button

Quincy voters have several contested races to decide at today’s annual election.

But there are also three ballot questions, including one that would change the length of a mayor’s term in office.

Voters in Quincy will decide a two-way race for Ward 4 City Councilor and a four-way contest for three seats on the Quincy School Committee

Voters will also decide if the mayor’s term in office should be for four years instead of the current two-year term.

This question is a binding citizen’s petition, meaning that, if it passes, it will change the current law.

A second question that was put on the ballot by the city council is a community preservation question that would expand funding options. If it passes, it would be binding.

Also on the ballot is a question about merging the city’s two high schools. This is a non-binding citizen’s petition.

Polls in Quincy are open 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
