GoLocal Correction: “ballooning”

Correction: In GLW’s article about Governor Patrick, GLW reports that “With the number of Americans on food stamps ballooning from 28.6 million in 2008 to 26.7 million today, [New Hampshire’s Republican

In fact, Ayotte stated that “We now have 47 million people on food stamps.” (This is consistent with USDA numbers, and certainly supports the idea of “ballooning.”)

GLW presumably regrets the error.

WooDaddy: Closed (For Now)

WooDaddy Waffles, the great brunch event run out of Moynihan’s Pub most weekend for the past couple years, unexpectedly announced they will not open this weekend, and will not reopen for some time.


Dear Community,

WooDaddy will be closed this Sunday and for the next few weeks. We have been planning a move out of Moynihans for some time and had planned a last day in November. That plan was abruptly cut short and we will no longer be inside Moynihans starting immediately.

We are actively looking for a new space to host us. We are grateful to our loyal following. We out you we would not be. Although unexpected, this is a positive change and we look forward to being in a much better and more like minded space very soon.

WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please send us a message to pre-order your limited edition waffle shirt today. We need your support to help our relocation!

We were really happy to tape 508 episode #200 there a couple weeks ago, and look forward to them reopening ASAP.

Election Commission exhaustive coverage

Yesterday’s Election Commission meeting was one of the more thoroughly covered events Worcester has seen recently. This morning’s Telegram and Gazette report from Nick Kotsopoulos is only the beginning.

T&G reporter Steve Foskett was also at the meeting and livetweeted it. Walter Bird adds a bit of Worcester Magazine coverage here, with an odd take this morning on some of the exchanges. GoLocalWorcester has their coverage here.

Nicole liveblogged most of it, with MainSouthMom picking up where Nicole’s power ran out.

The flowchart created by Assistant Clerk Joshua Meduna, referenced several times during the meeting is available online here. It spells out what happens with inactive or ID-needed voters.

Audio of the entire meeting is here.

In addition, the following requests were made by the Voter Protection Network:

  • Request that the Election Commission and the City of Worcester continue to prioritize the pressing need for greater training of poll workers as well as for police officers who work at polling locations.
  • Request that the Election Commission place 2 large signs in the same languages as the ballots at all polling locations stating; “ALL ELEGIBLE VOTERS HAVE A RIGHT TO VOTE TODAY” and a second of the City’s official list of acceptable proof of residency.
  • Request the names of anyone that was removed from polling locations by the Worcester Police Department, or asked to leave by the Worcester City Clerk, be submitted by the City of Worcester to the Attorney General’s Civil Rights Commission and the City Solicitors Office to be reviewed and recommended for potential sanctions.


For those interested, the next meeting of the Voter Protection Network is Wednesday, September 26 at 6:15 pm at the YWCA, 1 Salem Square.  For more information, see here.

Voter Protection Network – Monday at Election Commission

via Facebook:

During Thursday’s primary election, there were numerous incidents of voter intimidation, voter suppression, and other serious issues that took place at a number of polling locations.

Our Elections Commission is meeting on Monday evening, and they need to hear from the community that such issues

I own some pieces of Worcester ephemera, and this might just be one of my favorites. It’s the brochure for a show called “The Story of Worcester” which was staged in honor of Worcester’ 250th anniversary:

My favorite part is definitely “You have seen pagentry before but nothing to compare with this

As if there were any “similar event” to a cast-of-nearly-thousands 90-minute show of Worcester history.

Worcester primary wrapup

Mary Keefe wins Democratic primary for state rep, will presumably win election. She has run for City Council in the past and not done that well; in this election she soundly defeated, among others, long-time and very popular City Councilor Kate Toomey.

I don’t live in that state rep district, but based on the election mailers Jeremy Shulkin has collected and shared online, the Keefe team used the most consistent capitalization and punctuation of the primary campaign.

T&G has a good column on Tea Partiers coming into Worcester as “agitators” allegedly “intent on intimidation and voter suppression.”

These folks are reportedly worried about liberal Worcester activists registering “disenfranchised people” to vote. Expect that word choice to be mocked in the coming weeks.

Nicole has a little commentary and followup.
