I’m thinking we should borrow some more money and make these places parks, because you know, we don’t have enough places for the public to access the water in Gloucester.
I mean if you take away the miles of beaches like Cressey’s, Good Harbor, Niles, Half Moon Beach, Pavilion Beach, Plum Cove Beach, Lane’s Cove, Wingersheek Beach ,the Back Shore and the Boulevard and the landings such as Cripple Cove, Gardiner Landing, Clay Cove, Oakes Cove, Ben Smith Playground, Fort Square Playground, Gus Foot Park, the State Fish Pier, there’s virtually no where at all for anyone to access the water. It’s criminal the way the public in Gloucester is denied access to the waterfront.
Taxes, we don’t need no stinking taxes from these properties developed, do we? And we know that anyone intending to actually turn a profit on any of these properties and employ people we need to demonize because they are EVIL EVIL EVIL!!!! Bah!
Let us make a resolution in 2011 that under no circumstances should any person who wants to actually create jobs and invest in these properties be allowed to. We need to stay the course, because obviously you can see from the pictures that that course has led to tremendous results!!!!
Let us support wholeheartedly the politicians that demonize any potential investors in these properties and put roadblocks to their redevelopment.
Give Us More Parks- More Non-Profits and More Places That Need To Be Supported By Donations From the Public! Clearly all of the Non-Profits Around the City Could Use Some More Competition For the Private Dollars That Support Them. The Judith Sargent Murray Museum, The Heritage Center, The Adventure, Ocean Alliance, They Could All Use Another Two Or Three Non-Profits Vying For The Same Dollars For Support.
As Our Lobsterman Mark Ring Says of The Aquarium Idea For I4 C2- “Those Poor Fish At An Aquarium Will Die Of Loneliness For 10 Months Of The Year.” Possibly The Funniest and Truest Thing I Heard In All Of 2011.
NO CHANGE! SING IT WITH ME!
