Mayor Williams: Let's promote NCS' EXCELLENT rating

Guest blog by Mayor Tom Williams

I have always tried to promote the positives about our city, and I have encouraged others to do the same. There are always going to be some negatives, but we need to promote and demand emphasis on Norwood's many positives. Superintendent Rob Amodio’s announcement Friday that Norwood City Schools has achieved an EXCELLENT rating on the state report card is a pure example of why we should promote and demand recognition.

This is an accomplishment that very few obtain. Rob Amodio’s goals filtered through the school administration to the teachers, the students and the parents, all of whom collectively achieved this momentus recognition of excellence. This is something everyone should celebrate, and the City will support that any way we can.

Last September, Norwood was recognized as one of 100 Best Communities for Young People. If there is ever a Best 10 Communities, Norwood belongs in it.

On the lighter side, I will be demanding an apology from utility player, bench-riding Tracey Jones.

Thomas F Williams, Mayor
City of Norwood
