"Big Gus" up for sale

Oh blah, blah, blah ... now we find out that the Newburyport Trolley is up for sale, after just one summer of operation. Apparently this guy Michael Vetrano is making a living off being a police officer in Everett, resigning and going off for a year to do something else, then being hired back as a police officer by his buddy, Mayor Carlo DeMaria.

Not to mention he got $10,000-$12,000 in economic development money from the city ...

Although the facts of the entire venture are disturbing, the glaring fact that shines thru is that the trolley was not viable.
I hope the city looks carefully before funding any more such "adventures"!

Saw this on Craigslist today. Good luck getting that grant money back.
