Putting that aside the comments need to be read. My favorite is from Gary Vecchio, a guy I only hear on the radio an read in the Telegram but have never met. He seems like a very nice guy and seems to have his heart in the right place, but I can not disagree more with his comment.
The City Manager reported that 75 new businesses opened in Worcester last year. Also, a few weeks ago the Manager's office reported that a business in West Boylston was moving to Plantation Street in Worcester and bringing 28 jobs here. This same business has plans to expand once they move to Worcester.Let's deal with facts, not fiction.
Before I disagree with his comment, let me commend Gary for stating clearly what he thinks and not being anonymous.. Again I do not agree with him, but at least I have someone to address my questions to.
- I would love to see the list of he 75 new businesses.
- Do we have to redo my list of businesses that have gone out of business in Worcester the past couple of years?
- One only has to look to look at the empirical evidence from the Assessor's Office that clearly depicts the dwindling commercial tax base to realize that businesses are leaving the City of Worcester.
Those are the facts and although I wish I was wrong and that surely is not fiction. If you have not looked at it yet, you should check out the Worcester Citizens for Business Website. In particular check out this link..
