It was a joke!!! HA HA
In a posting on another site Southbridge Town Council Chairman Shaun Moriarty makes a surprising announcement.
According to the post, Mr. Moriarty will not seek reelection to the Southbridge Town Council. Instead, “After much discussion, debate and consideration in recent weeks and months” he has decided to run for State Senate.
Naturally, given the calendar, one has to ask, “Is this an April Fools’ Day joke?”
If it is not, it certainly should be.
One has to ask the question, “In three years on the Southbridge Town Council can he name one significant accomplishment?”
Certainly he has tied his name to every fund-raising effort in the town. That should give him a head start in raising the money for such an effort.
However, we certainly have had enough of those who pander to the well-connected and financially able. It really is an indication that politics and political ambition have more to do with currying their favor than actually accomplishing anything.
