A few days before Thanksgiving (Tues., Nov. 26) city leaders spring this on us! The future of Affordable Housing in Worcester! AND: Downtown’s Theater District!

Ha! What a coincidence! While most of us will be out buying tofurkey for the holidays – or driving to visit relatives in farflung cities – the City of Worcester will be doing very important business – business that will impact downtown Worcester for years, business that will determine the fate of our working class! Our leaders will be discussing (or: rubber stampling): the city’s new affordable housing plan and downtown theater district plan.

This is city business! This is OUR business. It is business that we all need to weigh in on! I downloaded the link (click on the blue numbers below), but here is the “agenda”: straight from the jackass’ mouth!

We are the turkeys!! – R. Tirella
