I happened to watch a rerun of the Saturday SC meeting, mostly because I was bored out of my mind and had literally nothing else to do. The Mayor made a comment at one point about the changing demographic in Melrose, in that it now reflects major increases in the 35 to 45 age group, and in the under 18 age group, with the formerly large senior population now reduced to about 25%.
Point being, I'm one of those in that latter group who moved to another community, and since I owe no allegiance to the current demographic, I'm tickled to death that Melrose can't attract quality hires, especially teachers and administrators, because the result of that is that my town's pool of potential candidates continues to increase in quality. Keep it up, Melrose. You're doing a big favor for surrounding communities.
Thanks for leaving. We don't want, need or like old fools like you in this city. I hope whatever crappy town you moved to is glad to have you. It sure sounds like things are great in your new town...so great that you can't help but keep tabs on Melrose. I am sorry to inform you but things are great in this fine city and those of us that live here absolutely love it! Naysayers on this site have been waiting for bad things to happen for years, but home values continue to skyrocket and MHS grads continue to flourish. Good riddance.
Wow. Melrose - one community open to all. The truth hurts, huh? Whatever crappy town? Paraphrased - it isn't Melrose, so it's crappy. Looks to me like you just proved the original poster's point.

True. Good point.
Correction: according to Dolan, Melrose has lost 70% of it's over 60 population in the last 5 years, going from over 40% of the total to 12% of the total.I doubt all those people died. A great many moved out, which, truth be told, is exactly what the current "demographic" wants. Hence, I feel no loyalty, and it's in my best interests for all the good talent that won't apply there to come here instead. Again, keep it up, and thanks!
Well; I am also one of those seniors that left and we (my wife and I) are glad that we did. From what I see here and what we hear from our friends that still live in Melrose, it is obvious that we made the right choice.
