Last Friday, Chelmsford Patch reader Anna Bucciarelli had a question: instead of limiting our Red Commonwealth and Blue Commonwealth questionaires to just political bigwigs across the Bay State, why not have a version right here in Chelmsford that everybody can participate in?
We think that's a great idea, so in honor of Anna, we're rolling out a new weekly feature on Chelmsford Patch: the Big Three.
Three Yes or No questions for all of you to answer. Tell us your thoughts in the comments, or e-mail the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org (just make sure to mention "The Big Three" in the e-mail title.)
We'll have the results of the survey next Monday, and if you have some questions you would like to be asked, send them our way!
For now, here are our first set of questions for you.
#1. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Elizabeth Warren holds a six point lead over Scott Brown in Massachusetts U.S. Senate race. It more than likely will be one of the closest races in the country for a Senate seat this year, but will it be decided by less than five points?
#2. Traffic in the Town Center is always a sore spot with folks in town, but what we'd like to know is do you think it will be better five years from now?
#3. Another perennial issue on the minds of folks in town is the fact that Chelmsford is split up into four separate State Rep districts. Meanwhile, just next door, Billerica has one all to itself.
Let's imagine for a second that the state legislature had a magic wand and could say "Chelmsford, you can have your own district that isn't part of any other town too, but you would have to give up your distinctive character and be like Billerica," would you say yes to that deal?
