Bergeron is set to retire this summer, so Kearns will step back in as acting chief!Bergeron is Deputy Chief, would he get the job if Demoura left?
Just when Fitchburg just began to change! One step forward and two back!
If I was Mayor, I would bring a connector into Fitchburg. The revenue would rise dramatically! We could pay Dempoura what Somerville is offering him. Fitchburg could hire new cops and purchase new vehicles.
Unfortunately there is NO VISION! The Mayor believes that this town will run on its small art shops. These art shops would flourish with a connector.
An outside Chief is the ONLY thing that is going to work for Fitchburg!!Any and all support that this Mayor has been able to enjoy in the midst of No Xmas lights, No street lights, and higher water and sewer rates is the fact that she hired Demoura as Chief!
All these other things will become unacceptable, the residents of Fitchburg will not allow her to shut off the lights!! Renogotiate with Demoura and seal him in Fitchburg for the next four years!!
