Welcome to Progressive Fitchburg

Greetings, and welcome to what will hopefully be the first of many posts on "Progressive Fitchburg."

What's that you say? "Progressive Fitchburg" is an oxymoron? Well, if you only read the local paper or view the local blogs you can be forgiven for thinking that Fitchburg is Central Massachusetts' haven for inane conservative talking points.

But there's more than one viewpoint here in Fitchburg, and it's about time it got out there.

There are plenty of people here who are sick of the insanity. Tired of seeing every story in the local paper take a conservative stance. Frustrated with the seemingly omnipresent scapegoating of the Hispanic community. Just overall fed up with being viewed as a bastion of narrowmindedness in one of the most progressive states in the Union.

So here we are.

Welcome to Progressive Fitchburg
