City Officials Read Our Blog On Disgusting Cookson Field And Did A Bootleg Job Cleaning It Up Because EVERYONE Rides The Turtle

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.
