As for his reaction to the vote, Warren told Newton Patch Tuesday night he was "proud" of the Newton voters for the choice they made.
"I'm really proud of our community for making an investment in our future," Warren told Newton Patch.
Warren said he was not sure what to expect for voter turnout Tuesday, but was "confident Newton would make the right decision."
Thirty-two percent of Newton's registered voters turned out for yesterday's override decision, 15 percent fewer voters than the 2008 override election.
Moving Newton Forward Co-Chair Suzanne Szescila told Patch Tuesday night that the group will soon analyze its campaign and look toward more work in the future.
"I am glad that 8,000 residents voted against Question 1 and I am thrilled with all the great work that Moving Newton Forward managed to wedge into a few short weeks," Szescila said in an email.
Fellow Co-Chair Joshua Norman also said he is looking toward Newton's future.
"Our group has a lot to offer the city," Norman told Patch. "If they follow our ideas, we won't need another override. If they don't follow our ideas, they don't deserve another override."
