Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
Hi Billy , got a question , hopefully u can shed some light on this for me .
I’ve been told buy the mayor’s office & the construction engineers & the D.P.W that my street Pearson raod will be repaved and the sidewalks fixed beginning the first week of april .
Thus nothing has been started .
Nor on the surounding streets .
The roads are all cut up from the gas line removal and repairs to every home ….
The sidewalks are so hard for a person who is disabled like my father who has been a resident of Somerville for 75 yrs ..
& Has never missed a payment for city taxes ..
Or property tax or water bill .
Never late on a payment .
I’ve called the mayor’s office multiple times in the past & my question in regards to this matter fall on deaf ears ..
& Now empty promises ..
I feel that this is wrong .
& My father can’t even enjoy a walk up and down the sidewalk for exercise .
Granted he uses a wheelchair or his walker .
He should have that right .
It’s not a luxury it’s a priority …
I see the sadness in his eyes on how this city council & mayor’s office & official’s have put aside the well being of the elderly people .
It’s not right .
He enjoys going out for a walk durring a nice day .
I don’t no who else I can talk to about this .
He is 86 yrs old a union worker for 40 yrs & his retirement is confined to his driveway on nice sunny days .
Just wrong .
I hope u can shed some light on this matter for my family .
