a. "Mayor’s Working Group on Job Growth and Retention". Another dog a pony show from a dyed in the wool McMurray-ite. b. "what real incentives we can offer businesses so they will come to the city and stay here." Get gov't out of the out way. c. "I’m not a business person,” he says, “and many members of the City Council are not business people. So I think this will be helpful for the city.” Need I say anymore? d. “By living and working in Worcester, practicing law and developing property, I’m just one of many people whose experience with economic development can contribute to this issue,” says Finkelstein. “I can bring my own personal views to the table. Is not Mr Finklestein a player in the low income housing industry in Worcester? If so, this experience is not needed. e. "An issue like the tax rate needs to be clearly understood before people can make any logical decisions on it, says Finkelstein" Dare I ask what needs to be understood about a comm. tax rate that is double the residential rate? Worc. business people are not 1st graders studying basic mathematics. They know what the word double means. Please do not talk down to the worc business community like this.!!! f. “I think people need some groundwork to understand how the tax rates in the city actually work" (JOB said). See response to item e. above. Dare I ask, dont we already have Worc Municipal Research Bureua reports gathering dust that have addressed these issues ...which reports are gathering dust at 440 Main St or 40Front St?
Task Force in the Public Sector, Committee in the Private Sector, regardless the end result is the same.“A committee is a cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled.” Sir Barnett Cocks
