Yates keeps an open door
If you're one of the countless Newton residents who've never had to go to City Hall with a problem, but always assume that if you did need help it would be available, then I believe you should support Brian Yates for Alderman-at-Large. It has been my experience that when you need assistance, and doors seem closed, Brian's is one that is always open. Even if Brian doesn't live in your ward, he represents the entire city and is there for support. He is driven by a sense of fair play, and will work tirelessly for residents on what he believes is right. Brian is the type of representative that all of us need. His is someone who will guide you whether or not he knows you. He is soneone who is willing to listen , and who will assist you in navigating what, to the uninitiated, feels like a labyrinth of corridors at City Hall. His institutional knowledge is invaluable. I have met numerous people who have had similar experiences with Brian. I have found these people to be passionate in their support of him. Please consider voting for Brian, so that he can be there in the event that you, also may need help in manueuvering what can be confusing process.
