Last month we told you about the GoFundMe that RBG and crew had started so that he could go to a poetry slam in Oakland. They wanted to raise $3,000 so Turtleboy donated $5 with the understanding that RBG had to write us a haiku.
But they sent our money back to us. As it stands now they’ve raised $2,790, for the slam, which is going on as we type. Yet for some reason Ed Augustus and the City of Worcester decided that yesterday would be a good day to write RBG and crew a check for $1,500 for this poetry slam:
Unreal. They never learn do they? Hey Fast Eddie and company – Turtleboy is always watching. Always. You can’t get away with this anymore. It is no longer 2012. The fun and shenanigans are over. Oh yea, and we also discovered that “Poetry Slam Inc” is located out of Billerica. Not sure why the city of Worcester is paying money to a poetry group from Billerica. For what it’s worth, Poetry Slam Inc never filed their annual report for 2014. It was due on November 1, 2014.
But that’s never stopped Ed Augustus before.
Just a reminder that Robert Blackwell-Gibbs led the illegal Lincoln Square blockade, which halted traffic all over the city in December:
Then he led the Kelley Square blockade, and jumped on a trailer track in a threatening manner in January:
Then the city of Worcester offered to drop the charges against him if he agreed not to block any more streets. He declined. Now he’s facing charges in court and whining about it with his fantastic friends:
Then he threatened to skullfuck people’s parents:
Because he needs the $1,500 for a free trip to a poetry slam. After all, collecting unemployment for two straight years wasn’t enough public funding:
And luckily during this very violent summer the city of Worcester is giving money to a person who teaches children to crack other children’s skulls with baseball bats:
This is how Ed Augustus and Joe Petty think your money should be spent. We realize it’s only $1,500, which is pennies in the long run. But it’s the principle of the matter that the city of Worcester is going out of their way to give money to an unstable, dangerous criminal, who didn’t have the respect enough to promise the City Manager that he wouldn’t block any more roads.
Here’s my question for teachers out there in the WPS – what could you have done for your school with that $1,500? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page and we’ll publish them.
Sick of this yet? Register to vote. It takes two seconds do to it online. We need an army of turtle riders to send the message in the September preliminary election and the November general election, that people like Joe Petty will not be allowed to give away our money to criminals any longer. Mike Gaffney for Mayor.
