THAR SHE BLOWS: Gee Liz, when Lisa Wong got elected you started with the race card, and now your griping about favoritism? Basically what that sounds like is that a.) you got preferential treatment that will be coming to an end when Mr. Mylott leaves. b)An unbounding fear of anyone from an Asian Country. c.)A serious problem with women who have a college education, and Democrats.

All that means is that you have set back civil rights for minorities and women back to the stone age, and that your pals in City Hall are cleaning their desks at the end of December.

Thus the smallest cd player in on my computer is playing...my heart bleeds for thee.

Liz, I think the people spoke LOUD AND CLEAR on election day. As a native of Fitchburg and lived during the current administration, you make it sound like there is some armegeddon about to hit Fitchburg. Well that all ready happened with the likes of you and the current administration who decided to beat up on people who rent in Fitchburg, and act like we needed a mayor like Gestapo Ted, and Tom (It's not my fault, but I am a member of the current City Council) Donnelly.

Also, your pal Donnelly and Mylott saw to the fact that taxes are going up. After all, spending a large amount of the budget on Police Officers, that got laid off, because the city couldn't afford their pay, didn't do much for creation of business, or for crime either. Seems funny that even the Police Dept. earlier this year had been clamoring for a Prop 2 1/2 override in Fitchburg. So stop blaming Lisa Wong for raising taxes. She hasn't even taken office yet!!

Bottom line: Put up or shut up. We've heard enough glop from people like you, while Fitchburg was turned into a slumlords paradise. As for your paranoia, there are people at the corner of Day and Main Street, who can help you!

I have never heard anyone say anything positive about dealing with Mr. Gallant, and I have also heard he is on a power trip.
Plus, we all know, here in Fitchburg it is all about who you know. If you were a buddy of Gallant's, you'd have your hot dog truck in no time.
Marie, I agree as it is "who you know". It is an anti business attitude that has engulfed Fitchburg and tore it down.

<quoted text>
As a person who has lived in Fitchburg twice, I can see what happened to business in Fitchburg. Danny Mylott used the hiring of more police officers to bring business, and yet he had a top cop, in Mr. Gallant, that shoots down any business, to help his friends. After all, that is what the Mylott administration is all about...scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
Paul, don't give up...Fitchburg needs more people like you. Just wait till Lisa Wong gets sworn in, and talk to her. I understand going to Leominster would be good (and I wouldn't blame you..), but I hate to see business people like you getting screwed by the system, and storm-troopers like Gallant
an I quote this Red Baron?

No wonder the only businesses left in fitchburg are the bars, hookers and drug dealers.
Only some names have changed!! Mayor Wong came out swinging then it seems like someone showed her some evidence of something that could have hurt politically.

Bars are now struggling to remain open. So, it is hookers, drug dealers and gangs running Fitchburg 6 years later.
