If the federal government comes in to run Fitchburg we will see things fixed. There needs to be an audit of everything.
There is wasteful spending at our inept/disfunctional police station. They are embezzling tax payer monies and are failing in law enforcement.
Unitil takes Fitchburgs money and they don't do anything because all our politicians owe Unitil for all the family members that are working there.
The Unitil CEO gets 1.4 million,benefits and $100,000 bonus. The second man gets $890,000,benefits and bonuses, the third gets $840,000, benefits and bonuses. The list goes on.
We need energy spent developing our own energy company which would save every Fitchburg resident $40 off every $100 they send to Unitil.
Our police are non existent. 80 police officers are in the department. We have 3-4 cars total patrolling our dark streets on Friday and Saturday. With the lights off the criminals are getting away with everything.
If you vote for me for Mayor; I will make sure Unitil leaves as we will create our own utility company. I will have the federal government come in and audit the police station; I will tell the Union to BEAT IT!!!
I will remove the excessive comp time offered to city employees, particuarly the FPD. I love the Fire department as I see these guys as extremely respectful and professional!! The brass at these stations may need to be looked at!
I will make sure that local businesses get the respect they deserve, I will lower the rates for businesses.
I will make sure to HIRE Unemployed Fitchburg residents. We need to take care of our community. Residents are blaming other residents while government skims money off the books and takes advantage of Fitchburg behind badges.
The Fitchburg police station will have an external internal affairs department. I will have two police stations built by unemployed Fitchburg residents. The current station is a dungeon!!
There will be fairs throughout Fitchburg! Respect will be the key to success. We need a full understanding of mutual respect and "community".
Heroin and crack dealers will be hunted and ridded from our community if we have to follow them around town all day! Unlike the current policy of ignoring them.
As a society we have to mold and teach our kids to stay out of gangs; our youth is joining gangs for status only! Then they evolve into disrespectful members of our society. We need to guard these kids from gangs!
I respect and love the latino community; I will make sure they are represented at the table. There are allot of upstanding latino citizens in Fitchburg. There culture is always smiling,dancing and celebrating. We need to enjoy each others company and respect each other no matter skin color nor culture.
Fitchburg has allot to offer but it's citizens are left without opportunity. After awhile people give up and join in with negative. We need job resources. Fitchburg commuter rail just recieved 10 million dollars. 90% of this money should employ strictly Fitchburg residents. Instead you see all these CEOs and big wigs watering at the mouth for big "do nothing contracts". This money is stimulus "job creating" money. Already they have been looking at out of staters to do the job while Fitchburg residents get left behind again.
