I love it when people say that Turtleboy Sports isn’t making a difference in this city, because it’s so easy to shove it in their face when they’re proven to be wrong. After we wrote this spicy expose on the deplorable condition of Worcester’s roads, everyone and their mother shared it on Facebook (almost 1,000 shares and counting), and the next thing you know Ed Augustus’ office was flooded with phone calls from pissed off taxpayers. This left him with no choice but to BEG for our forgiveness:
Hey Ed – apology NOT ACCEPTED. It shouldn’t take a Turtleboy investigation to get you to do your job. The fact of the matter is that Fast Eddie is once again playing politician instead of playing City Manager. He’s only sending this out because he realized the taxpaying voting public is pissed off. That’s it. He’s pandering to the masses so you vote for his girl Sarai Rivera for Mayor in 2017.
Yet this is the same manager whose DPW Commissioner, Paul Moosey, said that there’s nothing wrong with the streets as is:
“They’re all drivable. They’re a mess with slushy stuff on them. But, for the most part, they are not slippery. The type of sleety stuff we got last night isn’t like freezing rain, like a glare ice kind of thing. We haven’t really seen accidents or issues,” Mr. Moosey said late Tuesday afternoon.
So which is it? Do you “need to do better,” or are the streets drivable already? What I wanna know is, what time will he be announcing that Paul Moosey is laid off? He had ONE FREAKING JOB!!! Plow the roads!! And he said, “fuck it, I’m gonna do nothing instead.” In what parallel universe do you get to keep your job after that with no discipline?
And I don’t wanna hear your bullshit excuses either Eddie. Here’s the thing, it’s not a real apology if you spend most of it coming up with excuses for your incompetence. He’s trying to make it seem like it’s the weather man’s fault and not his. Newsflash – there were no weather reports that said it would suddenly get warm and melt the snow. None. You literally made that up to excuse your own incompetence because you were too busy burning money with your girl Brenda Jenkins.
He also tells some tall tales in there. Hey Eddie, you never salted the main roads on Monday night. You never sanded hilly residential areas. Tell that to the firefighters whose truck crashed on First Street. Does this look like sanding to you?
Because to me it looks like a dump truck took a shit.
Meanwhile, Clover Street, which is every Webster Squarians favorite cut through street to 290, was basically a skating rink. Watch this video:
That stop sign at the bottom of that street is NOTORIOUS for accidents. They never salt or plow that street and cars are always crashing into that poor lady’s fence at the bottom.
Meanwhile, this is how city streets are getting plowed now that they’re all just a thick layer of ice:
Tax dollars at work right there!!
But hey, at least we forced them to do something. Because that’s what the Turtleboy Sports Revolution does – forces people to get their act together out of shame. But once again, the apology is not accepted.
Don’t. Poke. The Turtle. (should we make these t-shirts?)
