Access road-let's learn from our mistakes

For a moment let's look at our train station:

  • we build a new train station
  • we build a new garage
  • now we are working on better train service

Now for the airport

  • we build a new terminal

Many people now say we need an access road.   Let's not make the same mistake we made with Union Station.  We do not need an access road right now, we need reliable airlines!!!

What Next?

The great news is that there is an announcement coming in October..   For those that are concerned that Dave Barger said he has not planes ready until 2014.  What did you expect him to say?  We have plenty of extra planes laying around doing nothing?? 

It was a great day for ORH last Wednesday..  What do we do next?   Thinking of a couple things but the one I like right away is for MassPort to offer FREE PARKING in 2013.

Contest Video;  Not eligible for top 5 or cash

JetBlue Video          (JetBlue response to the contest)  Not eligible for top 5 ranking or cash, since they are the object of contest and I am trying to get them to judge the contest.  JetBlue, thanks for the entry, it has spurred much of the interest!  As of August 17th, over 4,000 views!!  In my opinion the best video to date, but since I am not a judge who cares what I think.   

City of Worcester JetBlue Public Service Announcement   Shows the commitment the City of Worcester has to attracting JetBlue to ORH.  Sorry not eligible for top 5 or cash.  Great job!

Mayor & City Manager          (their version of Dave Barger's Commercial below) 

CEO of JetBlue--Dave Barger    (actual commercial) Inspiration for the Mayor and City Manager.  Shows how dedicated CEO's will do anything to benefit their companies!!    Obviously not eligible for top 5 or cash.

SIDE NOTE:   I have to give credit to Dave Barger (CEO of JetBlue),  Mike O'Brien (City Mgr) and Joe Petty (Mayor)  for doing these videos.

Latest Video

One minute videos

Getting lots of e-mails from people working on videos.  Some of them are really funny and I think everyone will be surprised to see some of the people who are working on them.

Businesses, as I have said many time here and on Twitter, should use this one minute video as not only an appeal to JetBlue but advertise their own business?   Free one minute video that alot of people will see...

Advantage Message Board

Have a new message up about contest and Nick's picture of Barger for JetBlue Day

August 22nd

From now till August 22, this blog will focus solely on the arrival of Dave Barger in the City of Worcester on August 22nd.    This week-end my daughter and I spent some time putting together a one minute video.  We actually had alot of fun doing it.. Will have done over the next couple of days....  

Couple thoughts:

  • Telegram headline should be JetBlue in Blue letters
  • Businesses could try and run specials that day that we can post
  • message boards could have the picture Nick did

Lets keep the ideas coming in.

One minute videos

Again you need to submit via Twitter with the hashtag #JetBlue2ORH

Was thinking.  This is a great opportunity for businesses to high-light their businesses while explaining why JetBlue should come to Worcester.

Basically free one minute commercial!!
