Mayor Lisa Wong is asking the company looking to build a slots casino in Leominster to sweeten the financial deal it has offered the city, arguing the project will have a negative impact on traffic and public safety in Fitchburg.

Does anyone recall our genius mayor making a similar demand or request to Great Wolf up near the landfill?

Watch out, Wong. Leominster Mayor Mazzarella just might demand something from all of those tattoo and body-art parlors that have opened in Fitchburg since you parked your ass in the chair.

What community development projects could possibly be mutually beneficial between the city and the casino, a gambling addiction center located in downtown Fitchburg?

She's acting desperate for any little crumb she can get her mitts on and it shows.

She is looking for money to pay for more police, I'm not going to argue you that. They said on the news that East Boston was going to get $52million if they open the casino in Revere. It's for more police, better roads and transportation so that the potential influx of people going to the casino doesn't bog down Fitchburg. Let her try to get more money, maybe they will finally fix everything that we complain about daily!

What impact will the casino have on Fitchburg? I believe that answer is none, zilch, nada. Leominster will be getting the benefit of hiring new cops that can be permanently assigned to the casino and paid for by the casino. Just like the Fitchburg cops get assigned to Ghetto Basket on water street and paid by Ghetto Basket. It will be treated like a permanent construction detail paid for by the company.

Wong is just grasping at straws after being denied surrounding community status by the state Gaming Commission. End of story.

Has anyone considered what impact slot machines in Leominster may have on the country of Kraplakistan???

Honestly, people in Fitchburg sell food stamp cards for drugs but now we are afraid a slot machine parlor will bring a bad element?

Nobody will be driving in Fitchburg unless they are lost.

Well, when I become da Mayor I would refuse to allow the Cordish Cos. corporate jet to land in Fitchburg.

Relax folks, it won't be long...Wong will be out and I will become da Mayor. Stay tuned to this channel during the first week in January and watch my master plan unfold.

Big, big changes when I become da Mayor.

By the way Kaddie once you leave Fitchburg you evaporate. Your perfect for Shitburg Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself. Leominster people loath your proximity and human stench.
