United Way’s 103rd Anniversary with President and CEO of the United Way of Central Mass Tim Garvin

WBDC-PODCAST

United Way’s 103rd Anniversary. President and CEO of the United Way of Central Mass Tim Garvin told us about how special this anniversary is. (Covid made it hard to celebrate the 100th.) As Tim says 103 is an unusual number – not necessarily too significant, it is a prime number. Yet for us at the United Way of Central Massachusetts it not only is the 103rd Anniversary of our founding, it also provides an additional opportunity to connect with our community. We reached out to our partners this week asking that they ‘submit’; that they send to us ideas and ways for people to get involved and support the community. We are working on compiling a dynamic, living list – “103 Ways to Support the Community” (and should we receive 129 ideas – they will all make the list).

Fred Taylor, President Worcester Chapter NAACP, spoke with us after the release of the Tyre Nichols video. Five Memphis police officers have been charged with Nichols murder. Taylor said a civilian review board with subpoena power is needed and he favors getting rid of qualified immunity. He said enough about the excuses over body cameras. We need those body and dash board cameras yesterday. Taylor said he will continue to speak with City Councilors and hopes to have an honest conversation with the City Manager and Chief of Police.

Worcester City Manager Eric Batista talks about the development around Polar Park and explains how the city is paying for the project. The City Manager is adamant that the city is able to pay for Polar Park. Worcester created a District Improvement Finance area around the ballpark. Money generated in that DIF District are applied to the park and that revenue offsets the debt within the ballpark. It does not pull away from taxes in other areas of the city.
