Has anyone else noticed all the “FOSTER FOR MAYOR” lining Gilman Street on the way to Saint Mary’s by the Sea?
Yes I have Kid, and it is beauteous! Just splendid!
Is there even one Finch sign in Black Rock?
In the front window of Matty’s Corner. Finch pays rent on the space.
Caribbean Jerk Fest, I will be there!!! Last week we were at Seaside Park celebrating our Jamaican heritage now this Saturday is jerk fest. Nice!!!
Is the jerk fest in honor of Bill Finch? Will he give his canned campaign speech at each stop? Yawn.
Finch’s idea of “going ethnic” is picking up some burgers at the Wendy’s on Fairfield Avenue.
Finch, Wood and Foster will be holding their own jerk off.
Finch and “Pecker” Wood will have a circle jerk. They’ll have a jerk off to decide who calls Bill Beccaro to ask for more money.
Diversity should mean “Time for a second woman mayor.” Let’s celebrate diversity!!!
Bill Finch’s concept of diversity is have more than one flavor of ice cream.
*** Please don’t believe the hype about the Mayor celebrating or having anything to do with these preplanned cultural events. It’s all a political sideshow on the taxpayers’ dime, no? *** GET INVOLVED FOR CHANGE! ***
