This is your hard earned tax dollars carelessly at work in Magoun Square in Somerville this past Saturday morning! This stunt is probably costing the taxpayers of Somerville about $1000 an hour just for police details alone where the officers were forced into doing this detail.
Please keep in mind that DPW city workers are not doing the work. It’s volunteers and the Somerville Arts council activity doing the work and of course the Somerville Arts Council is on the city’s payroll as well.
At the direction of the mayor, the Somerville DPW was told to supply the paint and materials at taxpayers expense again.
The city also had at the mayor’s direction DPW crews as well again at taxpayer’s expense blocking off the square with several more squares that are scheduled to be done in the near future so that he can paint BLM on our streets.
And there was no asking for permission from him to the taxpayers of Somerville to have this done, so I think it’s time to take back control of our city now!
I think it’s time for a change in our failing leadership in Somerville, don’t you agree?
