    Did you listen to Bookmeyers state of the city address. I about puked listening him pat himself and the council on the back about what them have accomplished. He stated there were hundreds of high tech jobs unfilled in area but he didn’t say where. And talk about kissing robin and the chambers ass.

      @ru-I agree. Look at the job section of the GLOB. Look at the job service web site/ The only jobs there are mostly low level entry jobs. Occasionally you will see a management job but if you look closely you will see it is the same company’s looking all the time. That tells you what they are like to work for. There are no new manufacturing businesses in town and you must travel to other towns around to find employment.

    They have been approving goals and plans for the North End for years and nothing ever changes. They can go to hell for lying.
