Quotable Quotes, Part 1

(this will be a continuing feature, as I am sure this is only the beginning of the entertaining things people will say!)

"This is not acceptable. It’s absolutely, positively not acceptable. In fact, it’s irresponsible for them to even ask that of us.” District 3 Councilor Paul Clancy, responding to a proposed request by the Worcester School Committee for a 1.8% increase in funding. City Council Meeting, February 26, 2008

“We would be irresponsible if we didn’t ask for additional revenue.” School Committee Member John Monfredo, responding to Councilor Clancy's earlier remarks. School Committee Meeting, February 28, 2008

“When we moved to Worcester, I certainly didn’t ask any questions about the sidewalks. In my house, we have deferred a lot of maintenance … because we are intent on raising our children.” School Committee Member Mary Mullaney. School Committee Meeting, February 28, 2008
