This has been the same story for over a decade. We lag behind always because no one encourages businesses to move here.

The Block grant funding has historically been utilized for everything but businesses.

For a city that grades extremely poor concerning business development it should require a voter from our city councilors that restricts block grant funding for upstarts and for business improvements that involve job growth.

There is no incentive, the cost of doing business is the HIGHEST in Massachusetts. These city councilors are comfortable with their rubber stamping of this continued mess.

It is the same old same old. There are empty condo units in Fitchburg. We need to concentrate on marketing Fitchburg better! Wer also have to make it financially feasible for businesses to open their doors.

Fitchburg is beginning to fill up with smog due to all the pot smoking.

I grade this city council as the most non active in its history! Our citizens are constantly batteling with the thoughts/option that states why care/ why bother to strive towards a better and safer Fitchburg?

You can thank the Village Idiot Bush for lack of jobs, 2 useless wars and Wealth transfer from Middle Class to the Upper Class. Also he created the huge Deficit by constanatly bailing out the Banks and Upper Class tax cuts with our taxpayers money!!

Of couse Working Class slugs stil scapgoat Obama, Immigrant and Welfare Children for their own miserable plight.
Right on

I like the way you think. We should cut 'Homeless Joes' taxes from 0% to minus 0%. That's how the country can make some money.

Homeless Joe would still have a job and pay taxes if it weren't for Fascists like Bush (Blithering Idiot and War Criminal-torturer) and Romney (Bain Capital pig)

Finally someone on here with common sense! Bush is a self proclaim fascists. Romney is still in denial even as the evidence has been displayed. Romney is attempting to top Bush. "Bain Capital pig"!!! I am going to put that quote on a sign and hold it at Romney rallies.

Between Bush and Romney I don't know who is worse for America! Romney has the nerve even to mention a job growth plan! Republicans count on the 70% of America not voting!

Homeless Joe would still own his house if Romney didn't incorporate Bain Capital! FACT!!!

Romney is a snake who would sell his own mother for a profit! His campaign signs are made in india!

Romney making 20 Million a year due to making America unemployed! Then he hires landscapers and painters who are illegals over hard working Americans!

Mitt Romney is NOTHING but a VULTURE CAPITALIST/FASCISTS!!!!

Don't forget the Republican initiatives in many states to dis-enfranchise voters with no photo IDs. i.e.- Elderly, poor, minorities (who don't even own cars or drivers licenses)- who are typically Democratic voters.

Just like bringing the Old Jim Crow laws back again- brilliant GOP strategy.

They need to give Teabaggers a reading test also- then none of them Right Wing Fascists will be eligible to vote!!
