Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
The Somerville Sunsetters, a great bunch of talented Somerville students doing an awesome job here in the city that always draws large crowds except when they appeared on Ten Hills In Somerville.
Last Monday night, August 12 Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone hosted his annual private party featuring the Somerville Sunsetters in front of his home that is located on Ten Hills in Somerville.
In years past the mayor would draw a rather large crowd, closing down the street, catering company feeding the neighborhood and invited guests attending while enjoying the show. But this year was a different story, the Sunsetters were awesome as usual but it was a bad showing and that only about a handful or so people showed up which mainly consisted of a few neighbors, some of the mayor’s family, three City Councillor-at-Large candidates and some department heads only. it appears that the mayor has lost a lot of supporters in the past two years that’s probably why there was such a poor attendance.
Red Bones was the caterer that was hired to serve food at the event who left after the show with over a half a truck full of extra food because of the no-show of attendees. The attendees that did show up did take home some extra food as well and you know Dennis Sullivan brought a shopping bag.
