“If it exists in Worcester . . . it exists in the Hotel Vernon”

Fantastically pithy Yelp review of the Vernon by Gabe Rollins:

Those who live here, say they love Worcester, and then hate the Vernon are fooling themselves into a belief that the city is something it’s not. It’s dirty, and it smells bad, but you can have one hell of a time on short money and you can have it with punks, hipsters, crackheads, blue collar workers, city employees, politicians, poets, roller derby girls, and artists.

Casino comments

There was a report in the Telegram about a former pig farm in Auburn and Oxford that is seen as a potential site for a resort casino.

I don’t want to editorialize on this too much, but it’s worth keeping in mind that surrounding communities that might be affected by such a casino have no say in whether a casino would be built in an abutting town.  So, Worcester residents (or Charlton residents, or Leicester residents) would have no say if this ever came for a vote.

And if there were ever a proposed casino in Worcester, the whole city would also not be allowed to vote on that proposal.  Only residents of the specific ward(s) in which the casino would be located would have that right.

Kate Toomey joins 15th Worcester District Race

Via FB:

On Tuesday, I will be taking out nomination papers for the 15th Worcester District State Representative position recently vacated by Representative Vincent Pedone.
I have given this a great deal of thought, and want you to know that I will continue to do my very best as a City Councilor At Large, as you expect, while the campaign moves forward. I love being

a City Councilor, but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to serve Worcester in a different capacity.

It is my understanding that there will not be a special election, so there will be a primary in September, and of course, the final in November.
I know that I am eminently qualified with 13 years of service as a School Committee Member and City Councilor. I spent six years on the School Committee lobbying at the State House on behalf of the Worcester Public Schools.

The full impact of the Wikipedia SOPA blackout

While most Internet users found that a day without Wikipedia meant that they had to resort to using IMDb for all their encyclopedia needs, the City Council Committee on Economic Development felt its loss especially acutely.

From the upcoming City Council agenda:

9d. FROM THE COMMITTEE ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT – Request the City Manager provide the City Council with a list of the cities and towns that comprise Worcester County.


Vacant seats and black boxes

The State House News Service had a long article about the House seat left vacant by Vincent Pedone:

O’Day said that residents from the vacant Worcester district can turn to

Sen. Harriette Chandler or to the other local lawmakers should they need assistance from Beacon Hill.

“The other four of us feel certainly a kinship to that district and we will do our level best, along with Senator Chandler as well who represents that district, to provide constituent services to make sure we don’t let anything fall short in the budgetary process as well,” he said. “[Pedone] still has an active phone number where constituents can reach. He’s made it pretty clear that Senator Chandler is available and we certainly can all, through her, assist with whatever work needs to be done in that district.”

And a CommonWealth poll about Tim Murray is also of interest:

A whopping 56 percent of those polled answered “don’t know” when asked whether they view him favorably or unfavorably, while 27 percent said they viewed him very or somewhat favorably and 17 percent viewed him very or somewhat unfavorably. (His anonymity, spoofed last fall in this video for a MassINC fundraising event, remains intact.)
