Broadway Winter Hill the Screw Job

By Arthur Moore

Well it has been way over a year we have been stuck with this mess the city decided we needed. It has not work from day one. Yet here we are after fighting for over a year for our employees(elected officials) to fix the problem they created. Between Brad Rawson, Mark Niedergang, Jesse Clingan and Joe Curtatone not a thing has been done to step up and make it right.

It has been brought to their attention in many ways and still they sit there and ignore the facts. It is like they have it on for senior people and people with disabilities. We hired them to work for us, not make our life miserable. When people screw up on the job they usually have to fix their mistakes. Obviously elected official are immune to fixing their mistakes.

And for those who have seen me write about this for over a year now I have not given up getting this corrected. I know in another year once the new mayor is in and Jesse Clingan and Mark NIedergang are gone we have a real chance at getting some relief here. I know those three are going and I am hoping for more to follow as we need to take this city back.

This screwup and the many others that have hurt small businesses and make the life of seniors here intolerable have to go. 2021 is time for the face politics to change here. Others that have a seat on the council also will have to go and replaced by people who actually care and will put some effort into doing the job that is needed and being responsible for when they make a mistake.

I know we are just finishing up the presidential election but it is early enough for people who care to start thinking about helping this city get back on track. We can’t let these people and occupy space in our city hall. Look around the city and see for yourself.

Let’s try and save it before it’s too late. I can’t tell you how many times the stupid unused bike lane is just temporary and can be changed is it does not work. Well guess what? It is still an unused bike lane making life miserable for seniors and the disabled never mind the screw job to the small business people.

But then we are stuck with Jesse Clingan who won’t speak up for people as he is afraid to. But they may as well enjoy it as they only have a little over a year to go before the new people take over. Many of us never thought there was a chance but now we do. It’s time for the people for a change.

  1. Jessie is worried anyone that walks like a duck acts like a duck is going to beat him. Look at swifty over in Assembly another wing nut added to the hall of shame.

    Arthur if ALL Somerville homeowners and their families participated in the local election things will be very different. I agree and the entire board has abandoned their constituents that really matter.

    That is very much the reason why we have had a Republican Governor to stop the attack on the middle class and the rights and freedom of everyone.

    I suggest being more positive moving into the local election encouraging people to vote and let the current body know what’s wrong that will cause change.

    1. Not a problem. Jesse is going out in 2021, No need for him to bother even running.He is done for sure. And so is Niedergang. And the mayor will be gone. At the very least those three will be gone for sure. I would like to see more gone but I do not know who else is jumping in. I am hoping once they see these three gone others will know they have a chance finally. And Brad Rawson who is only appointed will be out of here. We will be going back to people who are actually going to work for the people. Not themselves. This much I am sure of.

  2. The issues are too complicated. This was the strategy which I have followed the past 15 years: The city is comprised of city workers who are also taxpayers and have self serving interests and conflicts. They are split into two categories: one that is called a “hack”, defined as someone who will do whatever it takes to keep their job and serve the mayor’s evil empire. The second are good people stuck in survival mode. They don’t like the mayor but just keep their heads down because they need their retirement. The second strategy in addition to keeping local votes, is driving up home sales to entice locals to sell and flip their homes to developers and incoming liberals who invest, and or vote if they live here. This increases voter base. The other issue was bringing in GLX which was Tufts benefit and abuse of eminent domain which fleeced hundreds out of their homes in Union Square, offering $200k for homes that have given developers millions when they built hundreds of condos. They also brought in Bernie’s Our Revolution to try and hijack the rest of the homeowner properties with bad policies like right of first refusal, transfer tax and that demonic rent control which would turn this place into a real cesspool of more freeloaders hiding trust funds. This is exactly what happened to San Francisco. They use tactics to demoralize the working class by stripping them of their income, savings and assets. What I would like to know is why hasn’t the Federal Marshall been asked to intervene? The liberal democrats have proven themselves to be nothing more than a pack of self serving heathens who are never satisfied with how much they rob from their working class constituency. Even all the former mayor’s we had combined with a few exceptions was not like this. We are the laughing stock of not only the rest of the state, but the country. Even national talk radio gave a big thumbs up to Wynn’s success. What does that tell you? One commenter on the Savage show said, “After Wynn had that trouble in Boston, he sailed out on his 400 sq. foot yacht, $6 billion rich…..”, $17 million is nothing compared to Wynn’s success and he has more class, and real friends. The old boy network who ran this city years ago would never have allowed this jerk to do what he has done. They were not perfect, but they took care of our families, our elders and our vets. I keep praying for a miracle or even another crash on wallstreet. Whatever it takes to destroy them financially and put them away, exile them from our city once and for all.

    1. They are facing opponents they cannot beat. It will become more obvious to everyone in the next few weeks if not sooner.
