Everyone knows Worcester’s roads are a gigantic nightmare right now. Cars are sliding around everywhere, the snow has turned into ice, and the main arteries are a standstill during peak traffic hours. But don’t worry, because you’re all just imagining these things. Everything is fine according to Department of Public Works Commissioner Paul J. Moosey:
In Worcester, Mr. Moosey said city streets in the wake of Tuesday’s wintery mix looked worse than they really were.
“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.
Translation – you’re all on drugs.
Right now it’s 26 degrees outside. Now I’m not a scientist, but I’m pretty sure slush doesn’t exist at that temperature. Pretty sure we refer to that as “ice” at that point. But then again I’m not collecting an annual salary of $150,963, like Paul Moosey.
Yup, no accidents in Worcester. I’m only listening to the police scanner right now and every five minutes another accident is being called in. Other people aren’t getting in accidents because they’re too afraid to leave their homes because the streets are death traps right now. Oh yea, and this tractor truck that’s stuck on unplowed Pleasant Street is an optical illusion:

It’s all good though, because we still paid $1,500 for RBG to go to a poetry slam in Oakland. We still wrote Mosaic tons of checks so Keesha LaTulippe could sell diversity training. We still have the extra cash to hire a “Chief Diversity Officer.” We still had enough money to host 10 discussions about race and brought the Department of Justice here for a month to do so. We still have enough money to hire a search committee for Superintendent, even though Joe Petty and Ed Augustus will just ignore them and hire the acting Superintendent anyway.
All of those things are more important than making sure the roads are usable for taxpayers.
In 2013 Bob Moylan was in charge of the DPW in Worcester. The city was looking into a residency requirement for six figure municipal workers like Moosey. Not surprisingly, Moosey adamantly opposed this requirement:
In an interview, Mr. Moosey, deputy public works commissioner, said that while he doesn’t rule it out, he and his wife are reluctant to move to the city. He maintained that he can do just as good a job living 20 miles from Worcester.
“I understand there’s a perception there, but I don’t have any immediate plans to move. It’s difficult to move,” Mr. Moosey said. “It’s not a deal-breaker to the manager whether I move into the city or not.”
Not surprisingly this is the same dingbat who thought it would be wise to build a driving range at Green Hill golf course, even though there’s absolutely no demand for it and the market is already saturated. Don’t worry though, because he said it would raise revenue and obviously this guy has great instincts.
Anyway City Manager Ed Augustus hire this guy because he was next in line, and that’s how things work under the current administration. If you want to express your disgust with these nudniks, here is their contact information:
