Mayor delivers State of the City address

Somerville Mayor Katjana Ballantyne delivered her State of the City address where she reflected on her first year in office, talked about initiatives impacting the community and offered plans for the coming year.

"Exactly one year ago, I stood right here and shared my vision for how we'd work together to translate our progressive values into progress for all," Ballantyne said.

The mayor added: "Whether (by) building systems, building relationships, or building capacity to address both our immediate needs and the global challenges that affect us here at home, we have been steadily taking action to move our city forward."
