  1. Marty Walsh is trying to save the Restaurants from folding. This is very understanding, the
    restaurant owners are his biggest contributors. Where does this leave the Residents? The
    attitude is, if you don’t like it, move to the Burbs, this is City Living & guess what this is
    also B. S. The residents have been suffering for far too many years for the restaurants. The
    residents may not be making large contributions as the millionaire restaurant owners, but we
    more than paid our way. The North End was home for a lot of Immigrants who came here
    and made it their home. We might have gotten rid of the so called Cosa Nostra and now
    we deal with the Restaurant Mafia. Menino & Walsh made this all possible. To hell with the
    Residents & hooray for the Restaurants, if you don’t like it leave. What an unfair system &
    it has been like this for many years. Residents do not stick together as they do in Beacon
    Hill & Charlestown, and this is the results. Strength is in numbers & anything worth having is
    worth fighting for, short & simple. I can understand that all the restaurants are trying to
    survive, but not at residents’ expense. Our streets are filthy, not in Charlestown & Beacon
    Hill or Back Bay, NO fault of the restaurants, absentee landlords are responsible for this. The
    reason why you are seeing more rats is because restaurants are surviving by feeding their
    patrons on our streets, or should I say their streets. There is no justice for No. End Residents
    because they never did anything about this. I am not talking riots, I am talking protests.
    The residents have only fought when it was their house, their building, their street, and the
    main issue is, it is ” Our Neighborhood “. The residents have not only been affected by rats &
    seagulls, but what about the noise that all this outdoor seating has caused. People have to
    go to work, or they have children, they lost parking spaces outside of their homes, and the
    answer is too bad, if you don’t like it leave the city. Most of the restaurant owners don’t live
    in the No. End & those that do are never affected by the noise because they are secluded.
    Well let us just say, when it is time to vote, remember all these resident setbacks.
