Camuso Not Running for Mayor

Over the last week I have been so humbled by the encouragement and support that I have received to run for Mayor in the city that I proudly call my hometown. I owe each and every person a sincere thank you. To those of you who have reached out to me in one form or another your words have meant so much. I have given this decision serious thought while looking back at the last 16 years I have been in public service.

I announced in December that I would not be seeking reelection because at the age of 37, I have a young family and I have personal and professional goals I would like to achieve. I am committed and devoted to my role at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and the special projects that I am currently working on. For these reasons I have made my decision to not run for mayor at this time.

Medford is the cornerstone of my life and I will continue to look for ways I can improve the quality of life for its residents as I move forward in my journey.

In the coming months I will aggressively campaign for the candidate that I feel will bring much needed change to the City of Medford.

I continue to look forward to working as your City Councilor.

Amirault Seeking School Committee Seat

John AmiraultDear Fellow Medford Citizens,

My name is John Amirault, and I am a first-time candidate for the Medford School Committee; I respectfully ask for one of your six votes for School Committee on November 3rd, 2015. I am a public school teacher and coach at Arlington High School and a lifelong resident of Medford. I am running for election to the School Committee to bring a fresh perspective to the Medford public schools that will create opportunities for our students to excel, build a vibrant future for our community, and restore our schools to the high quality they deserve.

I know that I have both the personal and professional credentials needed to make a real impact on the Medford School Committee. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Boston College, and I have a Master’s degree in Education from Boston University. I am currently a teacher and coach at Arlington High School, and if elected, would be the only teacher on the School Committee; an educator’s perspective is something I view as necessary for any well-functioning School Committee. Additionally, while in college, I served as a substitute teacher in the Medford public schools for three years, having had the opportunity to work in every school in Medford and at every grade level. Finally, for the past six summers, I have worked for the Medford Recreation Department as a park instructor.

I believe that the Medford public school system can be improved, and I believe that I have the aptitude and willingness to help improve it. In 2013, the Boston Globe ranked the Medford school system 124th out of 147 school systems in the greater Boston area, well behind comparable communities like Stoneham, Melrose, Arlington, Woburn, and Winchester. I believe that we can work together to remedy this situation.

As a member of the Medford School Committee, I would take the following actions to improve our community’s schools:

-Hold regular “office hours” at various locations throughout the city during which parents, teachers, students, and citizens can speak with me directly; I will also be available to speak with you via phone call, text message, email, and Facebook

-Work to reallocate the money in the $50 million dollar school budget to provide our students and teachers with new textbooks, more athletic opportunities, improved extracurricular activities, better professional development, and the latest technology and training

-Work collaboratively with the members of the School Committee and City Council, the Mayor, teachers, administrators, Medford residents, and other local organizations to ensure that Medford students receive the best education possible

-Look into implementing a free or reduced-cost public preschool program like surrounding cities have

-Work to add options such as plumbing and telecommunications at the Vocational High School in order to keep up with competitor schools like Minuteman

-Utilize my associations at local colleges such as Tufts, Boston College, and Boston University in order to take advantage of the valuable resources that these schools can offer to the students, teachers, and citizens of Medford

While these may seem to be rather lofty goals, I am confident that I have the background, foresight, and energy to see them through. I will work tirelessly on behalf of the children of Medford in order to ensure that each student receives a fair, equitable, and excellent education. If elected, I will always treat my position on the School Committee as a privilege rather than as a right. School Committee members are representatives of the people of Medford, and as such, my number one priority is to listen to what you- the parents, students, teachers, and citizens- of our great community have to say about improving the schools of Medford.

During the course of my campaign, I will be crisscrossing the city going door-to-door to speak with as many people as possible. I look forward to meeting you, discussing my campaign with you, and listening to the invaluable insights and opinions that you have.

I encourage you to visit my website at www.johnformedford.com and to get in touch with me via email at jjamirault16@gmail.com or by phone at 781-258-1614. You can also visit my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/johnformedford. Please do not hesitate to call, text, or email me to ask questions, voice concerns, or just chat. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you as we collaborate to build a better future for our children, and I respectfully ask for one of your six votes for Medford School Committee on November 3rd, 2015.

Thank you,

John Amirault

“Trashed – No Place For Waste” Film Screening April 29th at Grace Church

"Trashed" documentary“Trashed – No Place for Waste” looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health, a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current ‘waste industry’.

There will also be a presentation by a local community group about recycling and waste in our own community.

This free screening is sponsored by the Medford Film Collaborative, Grace Episcopal Church and the City of Medford Office of Energy and the Environment. The screening is taking place at Grace Church (160 High Street) on April 29 at 6:45PM.

Burke Announces Candidacy for Mayor

Stephanie Muccini Burke As I reflect on the future of this great city, I couldn’t help but look at the impact Medford has had on my life and how it molded me into the person I am today. I grew up in Wellington and graduated Medford High School; my husband Brian and I started our family on Belle Ave; we now walk through our yard to Edgerly Field to watch the Mustangs take the field. I am incredibly proud and honored that I bleed blue and white and this is the only city I can call my home. I came from humble roots where it was instilled that if you work hard, you can accomplish great things. This drove me every day and ultimately led to obtaining my Master’s Degree in Taxation from Bentley University. It was also instilled in me that no matter what successes you have, you can never forget where you come from and it is important to make your community a better place.

The education I received from Suffolk University enabled me to practice accounting and led me through a broad career in finance; both as the head of finance for a multi-million dollar corporation as well as starting my own accounting practice in the city that I love. Ultimately, this experience has given me the great privilege to serve as Mayor McGlynn’s Director of Budget and Personnel appointment for the past 4 ½ years. During that time, I have been able complement my passion for Medford and professional experience with a thorough understanding of the city operations. Most importantly, I have had the opportunity to get to know the extremely dedicated individuals that work for you!

One of the things that this city has taught me is that we are all partners in progress. These partnerships, whether personal or professional, are vital to the success of any community and allow it to thrive. In Medford, it is the generations of relationships we build with our classmates in middle school and high school; the interactions we foster with our local churches, sports leagues, and veterans; the partnerships we forge with our state and federal representatives. But most importantly, a respectful, engaging relationship between your local elected officials is intricate to moving this city into the future. As a 16 year veteran of the Medford City Council, I realize how important it is to have this partnership with constructive dialogue to be effective. It requires the support of the administration and its departments to bring impactful ideas to fruition. I believe that the public has observed my actions on both sides of the rail and realize that I have always been respectful, informed and productive.

This city has given me a wealth of opportunity in both my personal and professional lives. It has enabled me to start a family, build my financial experience, and forge lifelong friendships. This city means so much to me and will always be the place I call home. Of all my life experiences, Medford has been the common theme and it is because of this that I am excited to announce today that I am a candidate for Mayor of this City that I owe so much to! With strong leadership, creative thinking and fiscal accountability, I look forward to working with everyone in this great city and continue to be your Partner in Progress for the betterment of Medford!
