… I felt pretty hopeful about Worcester City Manager candidate Oscar Rodriguez. Of course, Worcester pulled a Worcester on me by nite-fall … So I guess it’s the same club of (good, well meaning) white guys pulling all the strings again! The same 20 or so guys giving all the important, high-paying political/state/city jobs to each other over and over and over again!!!!
It is very tough to be different in this town, that’s for sure! We all have to speak the party line and kiss all the right asses and say and do all the right things to get anything done here …
