We’ve known it was gonna snow for a week, and it hasn’t snowed since February, but apparently that wasn’t enough time for the City of Worcester to get it’s collective shit together today. This afternoon at about 3:30 PM, this Turtleboy was at the Buzz Barbershop getting that post-Christmas fresh cut from Heather the West Side wonder-barber. I hadn’t been out of the house all day and found out the hard way that the official policy for Ed Augustus and crew when it came to this wintry dump, was “fuck it.”
Anyway, Heather the wonder-barber’s beau plows for the city. He was literally waiting by the phone all day for the call that didn’t come until 4:00. Coincidentally this was about 30 minutes after we posted on Facebook about what a disaster the roads were.
I’m sure the Worcester Fire Department appreciated the fact that their very expensive truck was nearly totaled on hilly First Street:
Oh good, Ed Augustus and those who manage the City of Worcester are trying to get firefighters killed and cost the city millions of dollars. Solid leadership up top. Good thing the hacks who run the FF union continue to support this administration, who REFUSES to give them a new contract:
Every firefighter we’ve spoken with, and we’ve spoken to a lot, was voting for Gaffney. All of them. But unfortunately, just like the way Lenny Z ignores his teacher’s opinions and endorses Petty/Augustus with their union dues, those who head the FF union do the exact same thing to their members. You want a new contract? You wanna drive the trucks around on roads that are actually plowed? Here’s an idea – quit giving money to the people who are FUCKING YOU OVER!!! That might help.
Here’s the people’s City Councilor, Mike Gaffney’s quote when we asked him what he thought about the roads: “Once again our City Manager has shown that he is a politician, great at handing out taxpayer money without accountability, but horrible with the actual day to day management of the City.”
Boom. Roasted. Couldn’t have said it any better myself.
This is why Gaffney is the people’s City Councilor. He continues to be the voice of the people and isn’t afraid to stand up to this corrupt, useless political machine that bends us over every chance they get. Fast Eddie is really good at playing politics. He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars putting on the “Department of Justice race discussions,” he continues to find creative ways to write checks to Mosaic Culutral Complex so they can organize blockades of our streets, but he can’t find a way to plow our roads.
Hey Eddie, taxpayers don’t give a shit about race discussions. We care about roads, schools, and municipal services, all of which are lacking. Yet we still continue to pay some of the highest property tax rates in the state. What exactly are we getting for that? Because I’m failing to see why I should continue to live in this dump.
Like Gaffney said, the problem here is that a City MANAGER is supposed to know how to MANAGE a city. And in Worcester, it has a tendency to snow. But since Ed Augustus has been a professional politician his entire career, and has no background in business administration, he has absolutely no clue how to run a small city, never mind the second largest city in New England.
The whole purpose of the City Manager system is to have your city run by someone who IS NOT a politician. Someone who doesn’t have to worry about the next election. But instead Joe Petty and the McGovern Crime Family have tapped their boy to this $200,000 job that he is clearly not qualified for. The roads today were a joke today. They were unacceptable and people need to start voicing their displeasure directly to Eddie. Here’s his email – [email protected] and here’s his phone number – (508) 799-1175. Let him know that streets like this are not acceptable:
That second picture is a bunch of sand that a sander dumped in the middle of the road and dropped off. Because…fuck it.
King Phillip Road
Pleasant Street in Leicester
Not so Pleasant Street in Worcester
West Boylston Street
Gold Star Boulevard
Main Street/Webster Square
“2 Lane” Airport Rd/Goddard Memorial Drive
The real kick in the nuts was when the City of Worcester put this up on their Facebook page:
This is the winter equivalent of “our streets are safe.” It’s just a lie that they tell you because they know you’re not gonna show up and vote them out anyway. They have the financial backing of the McGovern Crime Family so they can shit on your french toast and tell you it’s cinnamon and you have no choice but to eat the whole thing. Everyone on the City Council backs Ed Augustus except for Gaffney and Konnie Lukes. All of them. If your roads sucked today we highly suggest you contact your City Councilor and tell them that if they vote to bring back Fast Eddie at the end of the year, you won’t be voting for them in 2017.
Here’s a couple more anecdotes to wrap this thing up:
