Jake, maybe the city should solicate the companys putting in all these high rise apartments and condos for money to increase the police dept. personnell. They bring in all these people and don't want to help out the city. I know they pay real estate taxes but not at 100% valuation of property.

David M your are so right I lived in the Linden Highlands when their were farms up there.Kennedy Drive goes right through the property we owned. Eminent Domain our property. I went to school with you David Linden Brown and Malden High. We had no trash pickup....had to burn are own...We did get plowed with a big ol V plow.The Howletts lived across and had a small farm their too. We were the Forgotten Ones...but im glad no one bothered us. Every Sunday Morning we would walk across rt C-1 and target shoot with the Revere Cops. At 12 years old we all had guns and used to walk across Rt C1 with 22's and 30 Carbines and go shooting with them. Try doin that now! Ah the good ol Days!

Hey Carol, how about telling the rest of the 'constituents' to step up to the plate, and stop peeking out their windows, and doing nothing?

Hey Paul, I was not aware that it was my job to tell the rest of the 'constituents' to step up to the plate, and stop peeking out their windows, and doing nothing. If they have not figured out by now that this is the 'right thing to do', then the guilt falls upon their shoulders.
