This is the flyer Mayor Joe Petty is passing around as he knocks on doors of people he refers to as “morons” when he doesn’t know his microphone is on:
Notice, “we have invested millions of dollar in our streets, sidewalks, and parks.”
So lets go over to Sarai Rivera’s District 4 to a neighborhood park for children called Cookson Park to see what “millions of dollars” of investment in parks looks like under Mayor Moron:
As you can see the park is clearly well maintained and the weeds and shrubs have been cut by the parks department.
And what kind of fun park for children aged 2-5 wouldn’t have a broken down grill just chillin there?
Just imagine how much fun kids could have on this……thing:
If they ever get tired of being covered in ticks as they wade through the tall grass while enjoying their youth, they can move onto the swingset, which is of course missing swings:
But as long as they can imagine the swings being there they can have a great time. It’s all part of growing up in the Woo.
After that it’s on to the sandbox for some more priceless memories!!
What kind of child’s sandbox isn’t covered in weeds and maple leaves?
Finally children can go and sit on the bench to nowhere.
Where they can stare at the impromptu junkie firepit:
This park is on College Hill and is typical of what Worcester has become under Sarai Rivera and Joe Petty’s reign of terror, which began in 2011. It’s gotten substantially worse and nothing gets better because they are too busy holding fundraisers and cutting ribbons to get around to making Worcester actually be a livable place for taxpaying residents.
Meanwhile here is what Councilor Michael Gaffney, and Sarai Rivera’s opponent Coreen Gaffney were doing instead of ribbon cutting (before and after pictures):
Cleaning up Main South. This is what real leadership looks like. Sure, it’s not gonna result in donations to their campaign, but it actually does something to make Worcester a decent place to live. When your neighborhood looks like shit you’re gonna treat it like shit. Perhaps under new leadership the city can start investing those millions of dollars towards programs that will actually make Worcester look slightly less crappy. Just sayin.
