Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
This letter is actually for the Ward 5 Alderman or whatever foolish name that he chooses to go by today, City Councilor Mark Niedergang.
Regulate regulate regulate. Your socialist agenda and inaction with the important items that residents want done in their neighborhoods will not bring good change.
Take look at the conditions of the streets not only in ward 5 but throughout the city. The majority are in poor condition those recently redone get excavated as a result of shoddy workmanship requiring leaking sewers, water and gas lines to be dug up after paving has been completed.
Take a look at the condition of the public trees the worst in decades as a result of clear neglect by the city. There remain hazardous street poles many ready to fall some have already again as a direct result of neglect.
City owned buildings in disrepair maybe its time to take a walk through some of our newer schools and see the condition. Look at the exterior of city hall when you go to your next marathon meeting.
Its time to get some things accomplished rather than creating issues that cause a divided in the city.
As far as traffic calming the roads and intersections do not cause the accidents it is the drivers who are distracted, speeding or on something.
I can only imagine the results of the bridge closures especially after seeing first hand what occurred in Union Square with all the signage , barrels and police details. How the hell does a 40 foot trailer end up on a side street.
Stop the bullshit and start earning your salary!
