The violence has been steadily rising for a couple years now. Fitchburg is a bomb waiting to explode. All city officials have ignored this issue.
Drug use and abuse are on epidemic levels. Prostitution is everywhere. Crack houses throughout the college area.
The ONLY thing that will wake these people up is if a student gets stabbed or shot as n one else matters.
NO city councilor walks around Fitchburg, NONE! I have never seen as many gang members and guns in Fitchburg than the present.
Drugs is the areas biggest business!!!! Fitchburg ha bee going down hill quickly without any efforts to stem nor address the problem. Fitchburg streets are very unsafe!
The city council doesn't have any clue in reference to drug prevention efforts. Imagine being a councilor in the States biggest drug dealing city and not having such knowledge??
All they care about is Pensions, pensions and tax and fee increases and implementations to attempt to cover pension costs; PERIOD!!
