My husband Troy and I are writing in support of Amy Ritterbusch for School Committee. We have both had many interactions with Amy and what always comes through is Amy’s dedication to the schools.

Our fine school system has stalled. Wasted time, Wasted money, with little forward progress. It is with this background, that I recently had a long discussion with Ellen Scordino.
Recap and analysis of the week in state government.
In case voters weren't paying attention, and turnout suggested many weren't, his name is Gabriel Gomez. And now only Ed Markey stands between him and the United States Senate. "My name is Gabriel Gomez, and I'm a proud Republican," Gomez said, reciting his full name for the second time during a five-minute chat with reporters outside the new go-to, post-election Broadway T stop in South Boston Wednesday morning. The reporters already knew who he was, but part of Gomez's strategy now is to make sure everybody else does too. The newly minted face of the Republican Party captured the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate on Tuesday by defeating two better known names in Massachusetts Republican politics. Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan …

Towns bordering Milford were among those who submitted comments by Friday to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission on its proposed process for reviewing resort casino applications.
Hopkinton and Medway have expressed strong concern that the state is not adequately protecting communities near proposed resort casino sites. The comments, made to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, as part of a public hearing on its proposed process for evaluating resort casino applications, were released Friday. In addition, state Sen. Karen Spilka, state Rep. Carolyn Dykema and Rep. Jeffrey Roy — whose districts include Holliston, Hopkinton, Ashland, Franklin and Medway — have sent a letter that expresses concern about the communities' access to expertise to evaulate the proposal for Milford, and a commission timeline that could compress the review. Foxwoods Massachusetts, which is seeking a license for a resort casino near I-495 in …

A space on Main Street recently vacated by Nik's Barber Shop will become a public, visible location for the development company that wants to establish a casino in Milford.
A former barber shop in Milford will be transformed in coming weeks into a location advertising a Milford casino development. The storefront recently was vacated by Nik's Barber Shop, which has relocated to Chapin Street. Foxwoods Masschusetts, with partners including Foxwoods Resort Casino, wants to build a resort casino on undeveloped land east of I-495 and north of Route 16. Its representatives have negotiated a lease for the space at 88 Main St., as well as some office space, also on Main Street, according to a letter sent to Milford Selectmen. The storefront location will allow the company to present residents with brochures and information about the proposed development. The length of the lease was not specified, or shared with town …
Initial election results show 18 people were elected Tuesday to Milford Town Meeting through write-in campaigns. Most are casino opponents.
Milford casino opponents have elected as many as 12 people as Town Meeting members, part of an effort to stop the casino development should it move ahead to a member vote. The Town Meeting would vote on a rezoning, which would be required for the property. A rezoning vote requires a two-thirds majority, according to town officials. Casino-Free Milford asked its volunteers to run for Town Meeting this year as write-in candidates with the purpose of stopping the casino development. "This was just one part of our strategy," said Geri Eddins, a spokeswoman for the organization. Eddins identified a dozen Casino-Free Milford volunteers as among the write-in candidates who would seem to have been elected, based on preliminary vote totals. In all…

The former Navy SEAL and the longtime Congressman will face off June 25 to fill John Kerry's former U.S. Senate seat.
A political newcomer will face a long-time Massachusetts politician in the race to be the Bay State's next U.S. senator. The Associated Press has declared Republican businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez of Cohasset and Democratic U.S. Congressman Edward Markey of Malden the winners of their U.S. Senate special primary elections, according to tweets from Fox 25. The call for Gomez came approximately one hour after the polls closed in the statewide primary while a call for Markey came moments later. Gomez defeats his more seasoned opponents, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan of Abington and state Rep. Dan Winslow of Norfolk. Markey beat fellow U.S. Congressman Stephen Lynch of South Boston. Brett Rhyne of Needham ran an …
