Rollins 2011

My 5 Senses has been silent for close to a year now. The main reason being is some of my readers got very vocal about me putting up or shutting up and shut up I have done since last August. In that time I have done a lot of thinking about how I feel about Worcester Massachusetts, if I want to stay or go, and if I do stay what I want to do to make it the kind of place that I and everyone that lives here can feel proud to call home.

I am hereby announcing my candidacy for an at large seat on the Worcester City Council. For too long people who do not work, live, and play in our urban center have controlled the destiny of our urban center and for the most part have ignored it's quality of life issues.

Join us this Thursday at Jak's Pub at 536 Main Street between 7pm and 9pm for a campaign kick off party/fundraiser. Entertainment will be provided by two of Worcester's finest singer/songwriters, Scott Ricciuti and Michael Thibodeau. We have a great deal of work to do and need your help to do it. This is something that has a serious reality of happening and I am excited at the possibilities. A donation to the campaign of $20 is suggested however any donation is appreciated up to and including your time and presence.

Thanks for reading this blog over the years folks! Your comments both on line and in person are what make me have the energy and confidence to make this happen.

Hope to see you on Thursday.

You have not stated what your platform is?

Why should anyone vote for you?

Welcome back Gabe.

I was wondering where you went and hoping it didn't mean you were packing up and leaving our fair city.

Unfortunately I can't make it tonight but would like to meet with you at some point to help in any way that I can.

As for Worcester, I have to say I'm more bullish than ever about the city. Some great things are beginning to pick up steam and coming to fruition which I have been speaking to in Bill's blog.

That said, I do believe the city needs councilors from the urban core. If the DT area had more CC's, the pendulum would hopefully swing back towards making the urban center a more attractive and vibrant place to live, work and play.

Good luck!
