Why you subject yourself to this I can't imagine, it's clear you're not at all liked.

Whenever a person runs for public office, they open themselves up to complete scrutiny. This is part of the process and can get ruthless.

Given the start you're having, perhaps you should reconsider and drop out.

I have not written in on this page before , but a friend has sent me these commments , I don't care to hear about Ted that is no longer an issue . and yes i have heard about Rachel's multi blogs and how she don't like many people , sorry but that don't sound like a very happy person. As for Lisa , once again she stepped into a full plate and even though i don't like some of her choices she got the city out of the red into black and i'm tired of everyone blaming her for
1- what she stepped into
2 - the state wide financial & economy issues
3 - Dec 11th 2008 storm
4 - Unitil
come on get real think about it ....
I would like to see Lisa run again and win !

Having money in the bank. Cutting expenses to balance a budget...EVEN WHEN IT HURTS.

Not pussyfooting around the issues. Freakin babies.

We have no money in the back. We do not have a balanced budget (do you read hte papers, they're projecting another shortfall for the city next fiscal year). And would you categorize handing out raises to department heads as cutting expenses?

Freakin idiot. What are you smoking?

Why can't "DESALVO" just admit he lost and Rachel is not that powerful or any one person responsible for that nut bag losing the election. Any way we are safe from him and his kind. Give Rachel a chance to prove herself. What kind of people were backing this "Desalvo" some Insurace Agent on Summer St. That is frightening all the signs and he wasn't even working. Just goes to show how hard up some people are to take over Fitchburg and "Desalvo" would have been a figure head with his big egg.(HEAD HAIR) I think the Mafia was behind him and that is pretty scary.

Hi Resident,

I would like to offer a question in answer to your question.

Your question: "Well, what has she done that would make her derserving of another term?"

My question: "What would you expect that she do that she hasn't done to remedy many many years of neglect towards our city budget?"

I will say that she has almost stopped the bleeding that had been kept hidden from the city council and the taxpayers by making the reality of our situation known. Before then, we had Dan making behind the scene deals and spending money without any regard with what will happen when it all catches up to him...now he has the unmitigated gall to run for city council.

Maybe the Sentinel will do its job and find out about her family? Why don't they help take care of her? Why is she so dependent upon us, the taxpayers?

Believe what you want, but unless Rachel has testicles and a ****, then, No, I am not Rachel.
You really do seem to have an unhealthy obsession with Rachel, though.
Ohhh, I see. Really? Rachel.

Then I don't know what else to tell you. You've obviously got it in your head that I'm someone I'm not. You're insistance doesn't make it so.

Either that or you're a troll and I took the bait. Shame on me. Either way, conversing with you is really a waste of time.

Imagine if you would, the turmoil if she was the mayor. It would be horrible.

You're definitely not Rachel. Rachel may be a nut, but she can spell.
