The People’s Councilor Michael Gaffney posted this on the Facebook machine yesterday:
That looks like Turtleboy Jr’s pancakes after he’s done with them. Oh well, at least it’s not an important walkway. It’s not like it’s Main Street or anything. Who’s got the time to get Paul Moosey to do his job for once? We’ve got ribbons that need cutting and hotels that need a building. Once we have more hotels and yuppie housing the economy will boom and we’ll have a bunch of suits walking around downtown sipping Mimosas and talking about world domination.
Seriously though, on what planet of lowered expectations is this at all acceptable? How is this not a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act? How the hell is someone in a wheelchari supposed to get where they’re going if the sidewalk looks like a remote village in Mogadishu?
Here’s what city leaders were doing yesterday instead of fixing this sidewalk:
Oh good, more shoveling and ribbon cutting!! Just what we needed. Somewhere out there a ribbon is waiting to be cut, and one day Sarai and Fast Eddie will cut it. And all the usual do-nothing politicians were there to celebrate the groundbreaking for a pie chain outlet. The best part is that this dedication happened in the middle of the day on a Thursday. Keep in mind, being on the City Council in Worcester is a part time job. These people all allegedly have real jobs elsewhere. Yet here are Sarai Rivera, Gary Rosen, Joe Petty, and Tony Economou who seem to have nothing but time on their hands. Shouldn’t Sarai be preparing her next homily about the importance of handing over 20% of your week’s pay to her newest “church?”
But of course the reason we have to put up with half assed, bootleg public works projects like this, is because the citizens of Worcester who vote in these boobs are 1,000% loyal to them, regardless of how grossly incompetent they are:
In the meantime, I guess the disabled can go fuck themselves, right Crystal?
But she’s right. There are bigger issues in this city, none of which seem to be getting addressed. Did we all forget the bang up job they did plowing the roads after the three times it snowed last year? Or the crime? Or the wasted money on chief diversity officers and DOJ race discussions? PC bullshit, ribbon cuttings, and chain restaurants are what Ed Augustus and Worcester’s leadership are good at. Fixing basic things in order to make Worcester look less like a third world trash pit? Not so much.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
