Waltham And Newton Mayors Square Off
Mayors place wager on football game.
Mayor Jeanette McCarthy and Newton Mayor Setti Warren have something to lose — money spent on a bet.
McCarthy and Warren have wagered a meal on the outcome of tonight's football game where Waltham High School will play Newton North High School for the first time in 20 years, according to a press release from Warren's office. The game starts at 7 p.m. at Waltham High School.
McCarthy has bet a lunch or at The Chateau in Waltham, while Warren wagered the same at Johnny's Luncheonette in Newton Centre.
“Earlier [yesterday] Mayor McCarthy and I had a spirited discussion, exchanged a few gifts and placed a friendly wager on the game. As a Newton North graduate, I am confident that the Tigers will pull out a win, and I look forward to my dinner at The Chateau," Warren said.
