    since they thank ‘sponsored by the City of Somerville and Assembly Row’ I assume the city was unable to find anyone (at least anyone not trying to by the mayors support) to sponsor this huh?

    As of May 22nd they had not found anyone to cover the $9k cost. I guess this will be chalked up to something that the city will pay for while cutting teachers, cops and fire department budgets?

    The city is really filling in a nitch here that would never be severed. I mean, there are no theaters that show current or old movies. No redboxes around for people to find. Doubt anyone has OnDemand…

    This year’s budget featured no opposed cuts to fire fighters or police officers. The school committee is still discussing the teacher’s contract. Schools got millions in increases.

    This post talks about activities for families and performances by Somerville youth. Get your facts straight and then comment.

    They cried about it at the state level, heck patrick is still crying that he wont get all the money he ‘needs’, and Ch70 is just above legal mandates, much lower then anytime prior. Personally I think past police and fire ‘cuts’ (less then requested increases) were good, but the mayor and others cried about how they were inadequate.

    Activities for families still comes from the budget, and spending on that has opportunity costs. Assuming that budget items are not related is ludicrous.

  4. Villenous says:

    Um, if they’re billing Assembly Row as a sponsor, then I think it’s safe to say the money came from Federal Realty … but don’t let something obvious like that get in the way of a good rant.

    I see! It’s a meta-rant. Through failings in both logic and basic writing skills, realnewsplease is illustrating the need to devote every available penny to education. Well played, sir.
