  1. As I've understood it, one of the alders who voted on this law owns a pit bull. If this is true, it means that alder sat there listening, all the while thinking 'Who cares about all this? I intend to keep my pit bull.'

    I'm wondering why other alders allowed themselves to be persuaded to adjust public policy so as to protect the personal, trivial consumer preference of one of them instead of protecting the safety of the town's residents. I'm wondering whether detailed minutes are kept of committee discussions not open to the public, and if so whether these are public record.

    I wonder whether any Watertown residents know which (if any) of the alders owns a pit bull. If so, I hope they post the information here.

  2. Jeff's testimony was heart wrenching. I admire him deeply for his bravery and compassion in pursuing this public safety issue as he has in memory of his dear son.
