The race to replace Will: Four Belmont residents are looking to succeed Will Brownsberger as State Rep. Democrats Bobby Reardon and , Republican and independent are all in the race to have an office on Beacon Hill.
State Ballot Initiatives: Four-likely propositions will also be on the November ballot; introducing performance-based evaluations for teachers promotions, a death with dignity law, something to do with auto repairs and to legalize pot for "medical" use.
