Joe Petty and Sarai Rivera are lame ducks walking. And they have apparently hit rock bottom. Here are a couple pictures that Jumpin Joe shared on his Facebook page yesterday, from the groundbreaking opening of a Popeye’s fried chicken joint:
This is the most Joe Petty thing I’ve ever seen. This is what five minutes with Joe Petty will do to a person:
This is his big accomplishment. Cutting the tape at a chain restaurant that recently replaced another chain restaurant (Arby’s). This is how you know you have completely failed as a mayor. When this is one of the defining moments of your campaign.
John Giangregorio, a major player in the business development in the Canal District, put it best:
Meanwhile right down the street at the corner of Park Ave, Main Street, and Stafford Street, there are not one, not two, but THREE panhandlers working the corners. This is what Joe Petty’s Worcester looks like. Depressed Popeye’s managers, being forced to take photo ops with a lame duck mayor, and serving lunch to panhandlers after they scrounge up $7 from morons who give them money.
Sarai looks like she’s struggling too. She’s usually peppy and youthful. But she must be feeling the heat from the Turtleboy Sports Revolution. Those bags under her eyes tell the tale of a mentally defeated woman on the verge of surrender.
Vote the Turtleboy Ticket for City Council on September 8 and we will not longer be embarrassing the city with celebrations of the grand opening of a chain fried chicken joint on Park Ave. Mike Gaffney for Mayor and City Council. Konnie Lukes and Rob Sargent for City Council. Jackie Kostas for District 4 City Council.
