The void between the haves and have-nots can’t be filled with the huge piles of snow found on the corner of your street. Just last week the Mayor of Lawrence, Massachusetts spotted 42 trucks hauling plowed snow from North Andover, Massachusetts to a river bank in Lawrence. If you’re unfamiliar with Lawrence and Andover, I’ll give you a couple quick facts:
- Andover is home to Philip’s Academy – the alma matter of George Bush, George W. Bush, JFK Jr., Humphrey Bogart, Bill Belichek, and many, many others. Lawrence High School fights to retain its accreditation every year.
- The average family income in Andover is $138, 475, and 1.7% of families live below the poverty level. The average family income in Lawrence is $29,809 and 21.2% of families live below the poverty line.
- Andover is globally known as one of the wealthiest and prestigious towns in Northeast America. In 2000 Lawrence was proclaimed the auto-fraud capital of the country.
The Mayor saw them and told authorities (I have no idea what the Mayor was doing out so late), and absolutely nothing happened.
It’s just another example of how the rich continue to fuck over the poor in any way they can.
