Issues require intelligent, patient leaders in Fitchburg - Sent...

Once again the issue of tax rates has appeared on the agenda of the Fitchburg city councilors. Full Story

“I'm a Fitchburger and Proud ”

This administration has already informed us all through action if not words exactly what the agenda is. As she actually said on the "Donna Show" that she is going to exelerate her plan for Rebuilding a 21 century Fitchburg. She is going to do everything and anything to remold Fitchburg into HER IMAGE of what it "COULD" be. She has plunged the city into darkness, literely and figuritively, to force the issue on her only other means of raising funds (and satisfying her cambridge handlers), A TRASH FEE and disabling our Library!
She has the best interest of the Wong Political Machine at heart.
She has shown again and again her distain for the life long residents of this city and the safety of the all. She cavalirely states that crime has not risen, once again, she is WrONG. It is a 'crime' to strike fear into the hearts of anyone, never mind the ones you are supposed to be advocating for.
I agree with you Mr. Gallo, but in this case I think patience is a gift of the mature. She has too much power for one so young and inexperienced. "the end justifies the means" seems to be her motto!

Mr. Gallo, apparently your "Letter to the Editor" waiting period is up. Suprisingly you have no comments concerning big business and the American labor movement. Putting effective, intelligent and patient in the same sentence with Fitchburg "leaders" is sort of a stretch.

Blueboy, actually they like Gallo as he gets people riled-up with his continuous rants. You know the old saying, any publicity is good publicity! Incidentally, I really don't have an issue with individuals that are extremely biased unless they keep going and going like Anthony but I do take issue when they just "thow some statements against the wall" and don't show-up to defend them. To each his own, I guess.

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.

Everyone is afraid to say anything about our corrupt law enforcement!! Enough is Enough; if you guys don't want to do the job;LEAVE!!! We will hire energetic people to lead our community into civility!
There is zero community involvement from our department! It is "us against them", nobody wants to talk to the police because we all watch their rude and disrespectful treatment of society!
I see them man handle drunk and homeless people on main street! We need to demand an internal affairs department untied to law enforcement. Let the Union take their pawnns and LEAVE!!
There are plenty of energetic law abiding criminal justice candidates that want the work! I would make sure that they operate appropiately and lawfully; if not they can leave and their UNION can file lawsuits all day as I will also against the Union for felonious lawsuits!!!We need guts in leadership!!
Everyone just goes with the flow! Take back Fitchburg from the corruption!!!!Fitchburg has allot of nice neighborhoods. There are few that need community developement. We need to brighten these areas up.
The drug trade can be knocked out! Encourage legal businesses that attempt to strive constantly;promote Fitchburg!!! Don't just complain, do something, offer suggestions!!!
Write letters to the Mayor, to the FBI, to the Governor. There are millions floating out there that is going to go untapped again.We demand this work.
Give me the ten million and I will run the operation. Employ Fitchburg!!!!!!!!!!
