Chairman of selectmen, Pat "Tankman" Rogers justified the expenditure by calling the move...
a great use of the money to prepare an economic workforce to work at the resort, and an educational opportunity for our young adults right here in Middleborough... [or even adults] to learn locally and prepare for the future.
Rogers statement officially confirms Middleboro as the "Appalachia" of the Northeast.
Further cementing the town's utter lack of self-esteem, yesterday, Middleboro voters once again returned Steve Spataro to the board of selectman, a governing body where, in light of Pat Rogers remarks, he clearly belongs.
In neighboring Bridgewater, voters eagerly gear up to throw off the shackles of a similar system of government which, like that in Middleboro, has repeatedly returned entrenched, financially-incompetent, self-serving nincompoops to office.
And so Pat, in honor of your inspirational 'vision' for the youth [and adults] of Middleboro, a town where, last I heard, you no longer even live, this one's for you.
