DiNatale and the rest of the hacks before him
have been taking Unitil bribes for years,
why do you think Unitil is still here ?
They've been ripping us off for years,
the ONLY one that has really tried to change thing
is Cathy Clark from Lunenburg
Where have DiNatale, Flanagan and every elected
official from Fitchburg beeen for the past 20 years.
In the bag that's where, their dribble is
worhtless, it is time fo rthem to get of Unitil
once and for all.
do you really know this or are you assuming, I would like to know how you know this

If Rep DiNatali brought this up in Sept 2007,
why has nothing been done since then? Not to mention, this is a full 2 years after the great ice storm. Sounds like someone is on the take, but I won't name names, as I don't want this to disapear...

about time some one in city hall took a stand
i like unitills article today, preparing for the storm some nerve they got being an advocate in case of an emergency situation,

id like to see some common sence on these pot holes in fitchburg like how about spending fifty dollars on a bag of premix tar at the hardwaree store and fill the bad ones in afterall i left my front end in one the other day not everyting has to be a major price tag or a sea of red tape a little commonsence goes a long way,

Respond to WHY - U have the right to ask but if u had been following things it has been noted in the papers and with Rep DiNatalie and Cathy Clarke ..

And Respond to INFORMATION - Correct not able to answer how they know ! and YES they are assuming ...

Rep DiNatalie is a good Rep for us ... he is only one person .... it has to go past many. if it was only him , Unitil would have been gone ...

you dead beats that want this, you still pay unitil and they still shut you off! lay off teachers hire no police, hire no firefighters. but lets buy the street lights, and build a new park, nice move mayor and stupid councilors. nobody uses the parks now or we just give them away.

Our Average Monthly elecric bill =$55.00
Our Taxes =$2300.00
Our heating bill = approx $1500/yr, including wood for fireplace.
Need we remind you that you are paying for what you consume in these instances? High electric bill means high electric usage. High taxes means large house/property. High heating oil bill means (taking into consideration per gallon costs) higher usage...
How many rooms do you have, do you have gas stove and drier, thats unbelieveable,

It DOES sound good, but your bill won't change much at all. 5 dollars a month? woo hooo! Realize that you will still have to pay Unitil's high supplier rates, and ALL the fees you already pay!:) They are not replacing unitil, only trying to get the public thinking that they are - while keeping Unitil happy too!!!. Remember, Unitil makes most of its money as a supplier.
$5 a month is better than nothing. And when you add that $5 a month savings in electricity to the other small savings monthly by being smarter about your finances, it adds up pretty quickly. I keep Unitil unhappy by conserving energy, thus lowering my bill (read Unitil gets less money from me). Of course Unitil will just ask for another rate increase because of the loss in revenue due to customers conserving energy. In response, I'll conserve more. I've had the same average bill for the last ten years of rate increases. Greed will make people do despicable things, Unitil is full of greed. It's all about keeping their investors happy, not the customer.

Remember, the voices are in your head, not mine. I never said Unitil is being replaced, I said it was a step in the right direction. Don't let the voices confuse you.
