Dave Levy, a Precinct 18 Town Meeting provided this opinion about local news and Town Meeting:
During the time overlapping with Town Meeting, I learned that The Arlington Advocate had merged with the Winchester paper, effectively eliminating the Town of Arlington having a true local paper that has material financial support to cover local issues en masse. Later, it was reported over the Arlington Email List that the new Advocate & Star would not have a local reporter covering Arlington news.
When I went to the “WickedLocal,” site of now both papers, I could not locate any articles related to Town Meeting, masking in schools, a 5k race to support public schools, etc.
I’m a longtime subscriber of The Boston Globe. However, the only recent Arlington news I’ve seen there was related to the four high school students who made the winter all-scholastic team.
