How unthoughtful and embarrassing is this? 400 Somerville seniors signed up in advance for tomorrow’s Annual Senior Picnic, that has been pushed off for the past few years ,and now￼ was going to be held at Trum field. ￼
Tonight the city canceled tomorrow’s senior picnic due to inclement weather. Unfortunately, this update came out at 4:00PM today and of course Somerville City Hall is closed for the day, so now our seniors have no way to call anybody and ask ￼for more guidance and clarification. ￼It would be only common sense and courtesy, but that’s what our current administration lacks. ￼
You would think that the mayor’s office would’ve used the next day, Wednesday, as the rain date, but her office responded that “It was complicated?￼” How complicated is a “Rain Date”? ￼
Another bizarre part of this is that she turned the picnic into a “drive-through￼”. How many seniors really drive? ￼ Especially when it’s pouring out?
We realize that you can’t control the weather, but you can make better decisions by using common sense! ￼
Mismanagement and bad decisions begin at the top!
