CALL TO ACTION!!!! CALL YOUR COUNCILOR!!!
City Manager has quietly announced he will close pools AGAIN next summer!
The “Save Our Poolz” coalition, a groups of concerned community members,look for your help. Here is how:
They feel “the City Manager O’Brien is voting with his budget and attempting to CLOSE THE POOLS NEXT YEAR TOO, quietly and behind our backs. ” according to a recent press release.
But it’s the City Council that approves or rejects the budget.
So the coalition is asking YOU to call your City Councilor.
* Remind them they have all said they would work to fix and rebuild Worcester’s pools.
* Tell them to REFUSE TO APPROVE the City Manager’s PROPOSED BUDGET unless he restores the $80,240 in pool maintenance costs.
