Talk everyday,HUH? What about illegal guns in Fitchburg? What about the gangs in Fitchburg? What about drug dealing in Fitchburg?
What about commerce? What about elderly needs? What about the homeless? What about JOBS? What about the robberies? What about the shootings?
All this money flying around and NOTHING being done but patting of each others backs!! Walk the TALK!!!!!
Take the issues by the horns!!!! The Mayor needs to have a rally of citizens to march through Fitchburg telling the taggers, dealers and gang bangers that they are on notice!!!
No comments on city issues???? Where is our leader of the city??? March with the torch Mayor Wong!!!!!

Mayor Wong!!! They tagged the city's war memorial!!!! This should be addressed loudly by our Mayor!!! Criticize the judge who slapped the wrist of a tagger!!
Leadership is just that LEADING!!!! This is why I ran for Mayor because everyone is MUM on all the issues facing Fitchburg!!
The Mayor should be up front telling the police Chief to tackle this issue asap!
Nothing angersme more than the tagging of a war memorial!!! This is equal to damaging grave stones or robbing an elderly womanor elderly man!!
Mayor, call them COWARDSon the front page of the Sentinel!!! LEAD!!!

The Mayor is more concerned with taking care of a department head with generous raises in a recession in order to secure 200-300 immediate rub off votes!
This is the responsibility of the newspapers to hold the Mayor accountable to lead!!!
This is what is wrong when you have the only city newspaper protecting a do nothing Mayor instead of pushing for checks and balances.
We are very close to seeing state owned media outlets!!! When these two become one in the same then you see democracy assaulted!!!!!!!!
