Ald. Osterman has been concentrating on the Winthrop/Kenmore corridor in his ward (north of Argyle) for months now, holding meetings, walking the blocks with neighbors to hear about problem areas, and implementing safety measures. We are sure he'll have something to say about this in the next day or so.
