This is all that this city council has done is higher taxes and fees.
How can anyone of them talk about encouraging businesses into Fitchburg?
Welcome to "Taxburg" where all taxes and fees are high. Are insurance rates are high also due to high crime rates that go un addressed.
Discouraging businesses is what we here in Taxburg stand strongly for, we are the land of Antonucci and Unitil also. Stay out as we spend a lot of time discouraging businesses and new residents to move into Fitchburg.
See, Lynch, no one cares about any message you attempt to deliver. That's because a person who plead guilty to manslaughter, did 8 years in prison, has an extensive record of assault and battery on a police officer in Boston, was arrested in Fitchburg for assaulting a police officer and a firefighters and was banned from a college campus as a threat to public safety simply has no credibility to talk about any issue whatsoever.

Cheryl, you are just a loser! You sound like a broken record. Go move to Australia!

Get in touch with reality for once! Look in the mirror and see what misery really looks like!

You and 1992 incident can go fuck yourself! You would of liked them guys as they hid behind bushes and hurt people for profit!

You are a compulsive POS! You exploit this incident and you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about!

You are a phony with only misery for a personality. You have absolutely NO PRINCIPLES that you stand for except CORRUPTION of the connected.

If I were to guess maybe you are married to one of these corrupt POS's!!!! And do not give me the BS that he has 4 yrs of college under his belt because anyone with any knowledge knows that this equals two full yrs of school!!! WOW!!!!

You live in Leominster where your business tax is 16.78 per thousand. It is 26.32 per thousand in Fitchburg.

But as this disparity grows Leominster will raise theres' to 24 per thousand. Then where will you move your scam businesses to?

So now Leominster is $10 per thousand lower than Fitchburg, better access to all major routes, lower water, sewer, electric, gas and lower insurance rates; where will business set up shop?

Matter of fact I think Leominster has as many businesses as residents. Dual tax rate coming for your home of Leominster.

Oh. So you have downgraded that night in 1992 from a "fist fight" into only an "incident?" Nothing that someone does 8 years for is an "incident."

You killed someone. You pleaded guilty to it. You went to jail for it. You are nw running for public office. You can't make that just vanish. It isn't an "incident." It's a legitimate campaign issue that has a lot to say . As it should be. The voters about your moral character. Or lack thereof.

Your police record, your constant lying about your criminal background, your constant lying unfounded accusations against city and state officials and the fact that you neither work nor pay taxes mean that you have no business commenting on tax rates or anything else.

I agree he does not have the credibility to back up his ideas. It would be the same as he walked into a Microsoft board meeting and started telling them how to operate they business.

The first thing they will say is "and you are?" Who is Lynch? What is his formal education? Degree in political science? Law? Business management?

Does he realize if he screws up the budget for any reason he can be held liable for misappropriation of city funds?

That means jail time. Sorry Lynch you don't get to see the union contracts even as a councilor.

The city council has rubber stamped every FPD contract! They fund every officers and firefighters cellphone! Are we in a recession or not?

I just looked at the City budget and there is plenty that City councilors could do. But instead they raise the property tax aqain only to find out they have reached its limit.

I see a couple exemptions. One is to the widow of a firefighter for the amount of $4,671 in property taxes. Oh, there is one for the rest of the citizens where 30 elder residents are receiving a $175.00 credit on their property taxes for a grand total of $5,250.00.

The FFD and the FPD even got their hands extensively on the CDBG funding. And forget about the planning board as we will not even go there. If you are an average citizen they will make sure that you have lids for your trash cans but it seems like if you know a city official you get the rules bent for you.

Being a FPD supplied phone I want the text now!!! Lets really open it all up.

And from what I am hearing the Dominican cop that was fired is coming back to being an Lt at the FPD. And Demoura is leaving, can anyone reveal evidence for or against these officers that he fired over his tenure?

Wrong dumb shit ! The city does not fund any city workers cell phone or else the city would be liable for nay calls they make.

You need to stop making crap up just to get information. What is wrong with you?

Just so you know the recession ended stupid ! If you went and got a job you would know that.

This is how the economy is and will be forever, get used to it.

Wrong again, the cop that was fired was never a LT. Stop making up the crap. Are you a drama queen or a drag queen?

It is okay baby (rubbing your head like your fired brother would). I know you hate the public safety because they are the largest amount of people employed in the US. Every city and town has to have them. I am glad I fired your brother and kept Shane Melanson instead.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
