Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone is looking to appoint the publisher of a local newspaper to a city board, according to an upcoming Board of Aldermen meeting agenda.
Donald Norton, the publisher of the Somerville News and a local realtor, has been selected by Curtatone to join the city's Zoning Board of Appeals.
The appointment requires the approval of the Board of Aldermen, who will consider it during their regular meeting Thursday night.
A call to a city spokesperson was not immediately returned Wednesday afternoon.
