Members must post
A site like this only works if members contribute information, ideas, and experiences. Lurking is fine, but if the majority of people lurk, and do not contribute, it is just not worth the effort. Just a quick post about anything is fine. Somewhere you ate, somebody pissed you off, the price of gas..anything on your mind.(well....almost anything)
We're not asking for a dime. Just a bit of your time. Thanks very much for understanding.

Maybe a neighbor with a littered lot, government employees goofing off, illegally registered or parked cars, a restaurant with a filthy restroom, or just something you would like to make public. Just take a picture with a digital or cell phone camera and email it to Anonymous Pics
A little detail explaining the picture would be helpful, but not necessary. We will get it posted anonymously.

#2) Senator Michael Rodriques (Democrat) - He said that he could not get a callback either from massDOT. Even though he hosted all the public forums that DOT had on this project. He did arrange a non productive meeting several months after the property was taken.

#3) Representative Patrick Kennedy (Democrat) - The most unresponsive of all my contacts. I met with one of his assistants in his Fall River office. Never heard back from Kennedy's office, and every time I called Kennedy's office they would screen the call and then tell me that she was not there. Never received a return call to my messages.

To other small business owners I would say this. These people did nothing for me. Keep in mind, all I wanted was a meeting with massDOT before they took the property. I was not asking for anything more than a meeting to discuss my property. massDOT held firm with all these elected officials that they do not negotiate with anyone, and refused to meet with me.

They may be able to rattle some cages for you. Maybe not but your story has to stay out there. They ripped you off, simply put, because you are not
connected like K and other are.
"He assisted in a public event". Is political 'spin' for describing a condemned politician at his own hanging.
