|Yvonne Spicer was elected as Framingham's first mayor on
November 7, 2017. Those attuned to Framingham politics
clearly heard the sound of a thousand neoliberal orgasms
all at once. We were hoping for a a shining beacon
of intellectual brilliance in a quagmire of stupidity, but
we got Yvonne Spicer.
She was totally invisible only one year ago. Where the hell did she come from?
The meeting had been scheduled with the anticipation that she would win.
If she herself believes in
who endorse slavery and misogyny, then she's a real
Don't you just love black people who support slavery? I do. It would be even funnier if she were a lesbian in her secret life.
Yvonne took her oath of office (and I suspect that she will blatantly violate that oath) placing her hand on some dusty bible.
It's a good thing she has Robert Halpin for a few months, because she don't know shit about Framingham finances Halpin will take the job title of special adviser to the mayor, effective in January.
Halpin's lackey, our assistant town manager, James Duane (17 year employee of Framingham) will be paid his salary of $122,000 until June 18, 2018. He will then become Chief Operating Officer ($132,000 - $152,000).
So we have
After reading the specs on her advisor wanna be's, one has to ask themselves why we really need the mayor for $187,000 a year. Fire her and use her qualified advisors.
Can you smell the blossoming bureaucracy?.
She offers no opposition to any of our money wasting boondoggles .
In 2010, the racial makeup of the town was 65.3% White, 5.8% Black, 0.8% Native American, 6.3% Asian, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 6.27% from other races, and 3.38% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 13.4% of the population (4.7% Puerto Rican, 1.8% Guatemalan, 1.5% Salvadoran, 1.1% Dominican, 0.9% Mexican, 0.6% Colombian, 0.3% Peruvian).

This shows the power of jewish money and organization and the push for diversity. . Fundamentally, she has no skills in running such a large $290 million organization that allegedly serves the public interest.
The office of Mayor tends, year by year, to go to such women. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of Framingham will reach their heart's desire at last, and the Mayor's office will be adorned by a downright moron.
Are we here yet?
Her salary is $187,000 and she don't know shit. That's why she needs an assistant for $69,000. It appears that the job requirements are far more than Yvonne actually has.
override is enthusiastically (perhaps unanimously) endorsed
by the city council in 2018 or 2019, we can just visualize this
public sector cretin salavating and wringing her
hands thinking more for me, less for you
The proposed Fuller debt-inclusion override that will be shoved down our throats by the public sector unions (who get the bennies) can be done by borrowing the money. Currently, Framingham's debt under the debt limit is limited to $450 million (5% of total assesed value of the city). The current amount in that debt category is about $120 million. We can easily absorb another $70 million.
Regretably, our idiot mayor (and councillors) will kowtow to the public sector unions (who represent our largest voting block, with money). Our largest is the Framingham Teachers Association. . They have many different unions, all bullying the school committee to find more money. They're just political thugs.
Lo and Behold
Yvonne Spicer's transition team.
I'm sure that both Reverends, who worship imaginary creatures will chime in with their intense knowledge of reality.
Are we transitioning into a theocracy?

She is hiring enough people to do her job twice over again. (and she is becoming increasingly racist in her push for diversity and women of color (an oft-quoted phrase of hers).
Yvonne does not understand that skin color is not a skill.

Framingham: Panel recommends new jobs in mayor's office
In the realm of staffing, Spicer's panel called on the mayor to create a handful of new positions in her office including
The city is currently advertising for two of those jobs:
who will help oversee "all aspects of the Executive Office operations," including identifying policy needs, building coalitions to support legislative initiatives and "mitigating crises."
Both jobs are advertised with salaries in the range of about $71,000 to $92,000.

Spicer said she plans to work toward increasing the amount of affordable housing in the community when she begins her first term in office next year.
"If our people are not thriving in downtown, then we as a whole community cannot thrive," she said, "and so I am putting a lot of my energy in thinking about our underserved areas, making sure that there's more affordable housing - that people can stay here."
