Brockton Water Commissioner & Community Activist, Patrick Quinn announced on InBrockton.com he has endorsed Bill Carpenter for Mayor ! Patrick Quinn joins Gary Keith & Dick Zaccaro as another candidate who ran for office in this years primary publicly supporting Bill. Please read his endorsement letter below:
Four years ago Linda Balzotti stood in my driveway agreeing
with me that the attitude in City Hall had to change and with
the support of people like me, Linda Balzotti became the next
Mayor of Brockton.
The following year the city went through it's "self created"
water debacle at the same time I was being appointed Water
Commissioner, representing the rate payers. I had discovered
gross lies from the Department that led to executive sessions
that were later ruled "illegal" by the State Attorney.
As I informed the Mayor and the Chief of Staff who vigorously
took notes of the Cities Lies and the Department's continued
effort to villainize the citizens which lead to many almost
loosing their homes , I was in not so many words asked to
keep quiet. That is to keep quiet about a City Government
that is run by the rule of mediocrity and that takes no
responsibility for past actions and has taken no accountability
for the lack of actions - I say NO, as every citizen should
when those in-trusted to preserve and nurture our city have
only blindly milked our quality of life.
There are many issues to speak of, but after seeing the
gaggle of teenagers throughout our city in neon yellow safety
vests; "that of which the incarcerated wear while doing street
duty", with brooms and buckets in hand without any adult or
structured supervision but the painted words letting us know
that these teens weren't criminals but rather "The Mayors
Summer Youth Workers", I realized Mayor Balzotti was
completely out of touch with the reality of our City.
Though I am a strong supporter of "NO POWER PLANT" and
are part of citizens lawsuit against advanced power I do not
believe this is the sole issue facing Brockton. I do believe the
next Mayor should put the question to the people as a binding
It is time we start taking care of business the way it was done
that brought our City to be known as a City of Champions and
that is why I will support Bill Carpenter as our next Mayor of
the City of Brockton on election day.
