On the Rocks's politica podcast


Oct 28, 2021

In tonight's episode 'The Citizenry' we roasted a threatening letter delivered anonymously to co-host Scott M. Graves during his on-going bid for city councilor at-large in the city of Gardner, MA.

Seriously y’all, if you’re going to send threatening anonymous letters to a candidate you definitely get your point across when you type it up in 16 point ‘Angry Ol’ White Guy on Facebook, All-Caps’ font and pepper the tome in misspellings.

We had some great fun at the expense of, ‘The Citizen-ry’ and thank this selfless defender of democracy for pointing out our co-host, as a former jazz musician has a history of short-lived ‘jobes’ in various industries. Who knew. 

Sandwiched in between the tales from a local election we interviewed local candidate for school committee Tim Markey.  Tim is a life-long resident of our city and a long-time educator vying for his first crack at elected office.

We all spoke on the importance of door to door canvassing to our democracy, what it means to be a servant of your neighbors and what our education system is getting right and what could be improved.  

We hope you enjoy the laughs and we hope you find take-aways to take to your community’s local elections. Democracy lives or dies in your backyard.
