Welcome to Aldermen at Work from Alderman Lisle Baker
Welcome to Aldermen at Work - a series of half hour televised interviews with colleagues on the Newton Board of Aldermen, other Newton officials, or Newton citizens. These programs were originally cablecast during 2009 and 2010 on the (Red) Government Channel of Newton Communications Access Center, Inc. (NewTV). I want to thank NewTV for helping make them more widely available here.
You will see over twenty-five current programs listed by general category, as well as prior programs in the archives, so click on any you would like to see. You will be directed to a web page for that specific episode. That page will also list those Newton officials or citizens appearing in that episode, as well as links to public information related to the topic under discussion. Also, within each episode is an explanation of aldermanic procedures called "Rules of the Board." These short explanations are also collected on a separate page like the episode of which they are a part under "Board Operations." (You can see links to all the pages in the web site at a glance by clicking on "site map", below.)
I want to thank all those aldermanic colleagues, other Newton officials, and Newton citizens who made themselves available to appear in this series. I also want to thank the NewTV staff who directed this series, Jesse Kreitzer and Ken Brady, as well as David Backer and Alyce Kaprow, of The New Studio, who designed this web site.
