The other day we wrote this blog about the deplorable conditions at Cookson Field in Worcester, that looked like a scene out of the Walking Dead.

Which was all the more hilarious because Mayor Petty’s re-election campaign flyer highlights the “millions of dollars invested in our parks.”

Oh, and in 2013 the city spent a buttload of money repairing this dump too:

Among the many parks and playgrounds that have had makeovers during the past seven years: Kendrick Field, Duffy Field, Bennett Field, Cristoforo Colombo/East Park, Beaver Brook Park, Dodge Park, Green Hill Park, Institute Park, Logan Field, Vernon Hill Park, Cookson Field, Winslow Park (Peace Park), Spillane Field, Rockwood Field, Coes Pond Park and the Common behind City Hall.

Obviously money well spent under Mayor Puddy, Ed Augustus, George Russell, and Sarai Rivera’s reign of terror.

As usual the Gaffney’s were the ones who brought this to our attention, because them and Konnie Lukes are the only ones that seem to care about anything that doesn’t involve building another hotel that no one will stay in.

Well literally one day after the blog the Gaffney’s went back to Cookson Field and look what they found:

A ghetto cleanup job. As Councilor Gaffney points out in this video, they did a pretty shitty job, as usual:

You heard the man. If the city didn’t clean this shit up by the end of the week he was gonna hire someone to do it himself. Take notes – this is what actual leadership looks like. You think Puddy would ever do this? Nope. No ribbons to cut. Just a park that will give neighborhood kids on college hill somewhere to enjoy their youth. Puddy and crew have no interest in that because it doesn’t involve posing for a picture with a rich white guy in a suit digging an ounce of dirt with a shovel.

What this does prove once again is that Turtleboy is a catalyst for positive change in Worcester. Yes, they did a shitty, half-assed job that doesn’t really fix the problem. But it shows that EVERYONE and their mother at City Hall reads Turtleboy EVERY SINGLE DAY. Last month when Etel Haxhiaj kept a qualified attorney off the zoning board because she reads Turtleboy, little did she realize that EVERYONE in that room rides the turtle. EVERYONE!! We ARE the news in Worcester. When we point out problems that shit gets fixed the next friggin day.

We look forward to the City of Worcester actually fixing this park for good and maintaining it. More importantly we look forward to November when Gaffney is elected Mayor, his wife Coreen dethrones Sarai “Titi Ho” Rivera, and Davis Assare gets rid of George “Jaba the Hut” Russell in D3.



We urge you to support the following local businesses.

    No surprise, if a issue reaches the media. It’s corrected for the most part, temporarily of course and is soon forgotten. The state is the same way too, some things never change.

    If you are from out of town blow it out your ass and if not remember after the Police and FD take their cut, after the School takes the biggest cut there is not much left. Maybe we can tap into the levy limit for park maintenance since some of the neighborhoods are too ghetto to take care of nice things.

    Many of the parks are in very good shape. How come neighborhoods that have crappy parks do not clean them ? or better yet beat down anyone who vandalizes the parks?

    Probably cleaned up more because Gaffney posted it on Facebook. They do actually work for the city council so when one of your bosses FB shames you, you’d better snapto it.

    My neighbors’ kid is in the boyscouts and what his troupe accomplished in one day in our neighborhood absolutely puts the city’s effort to shame.

    Thank you Turtleboy! I was taking my granddaughter there in the early spring long before the weeds grew taller than her. It was a nice little park until we were forced out by the city’s neglect.

    Damn you turtleboy. The DPW must be mad at you. Your article probably caused them to miss reading the news paper from front to back and taking a 2 hours lunch that day.

    In Lowell, the only time I see those guys really try is the week leading up to the Lowell Folk Festival every year. Otherwise the City would have no reason to make it somewhat presentable.

    Rides the turtle? More like anally rapes the turtle.
    Can’t you guys find a real cause?
    Can’t you do some good for society?
    Funny how most of the reports are far away from central MA…too much heat here? Too many people on to your game?
    And your advertisers. All of them. Central MA based.
    But again, your “reporters” from far and away?
    I give the turtle about as long as the current administration.

      “most of the reports are far away from central ma” are you alright in the head??? Turtle boy posts about all the dumb shit that goes down EVERYWHERE. Ive found the only people that take offense to the articles are the idiot cumdumpster, fupasloth, and chudmunsters that walk around infecting everyone with their herpasyphilaids. I pay more attention to Turtlyboy news then I do anything on the boob tube. I am not aware of any game being played though…can you elaborate? And not for nothing but, the turtle has been around longer then the “current administration” and it will be after this one and the next one šŸ™‚ As long as asshats like yourself give them something to write about šŸ™‚
