Two crimes were committed by people living in motels, having been placed there by
the state. In one case a child was killed. In another a man tried to sell a baby
for drugs. The Mayors of West Springfield and Chicopee both said that motels should
not be used to house the homeless. The chiefs of police in those towns thought
that homeless people in motels were a problem.
Not everyone in a welfare motel has killed anyone, and most have never tried to sell
a baby. But that did not stop the mayors nor the chiefs of police from saying it
was a problem, and they did not want it in their town. Nor did they offer an alternative
The Mayors of West Springfield and Chicopee have something in common. They both
belong to political parties which have exported jobs from the United States and
causing the unemployment and homelessness. The alternative of the motel is the street.
The motels were build for travelers. But since the major parties to which Bissonette
and Sullivan belong wrecked the economy, there are none. So thanks to the politicians
the motel owner’s major business is contracting the the state to house people who
have lost their jobs and would rather be somewhere else. Bot of course Bissonette
and Sullivan would never criticize the legislature nor Congress because it is not

because it is their party that did it.
Program of Robert Underwood
First of all we need to keep serious offenders in jail. They only commit other
crimes when they get out. We can only do that my replacing the incumbents in the
legislature who have already demonstrated their inability to make anything work.
We need to prevent people from becoming homeless. People are losing their jobs thank
to the major parties. Banks get bailed out but people do not. Foreclosures and
evictions need to be stopped for modestly priced houses.
Renters who have lost their jobs also need help. It is cheaper to help them stay
in their apartment than it is to put them in a motel.
I would also be aloud voice to encourage the Massachusetts congressional delegation
to start representing working people instead of international bankers and get Massachusetts
back to work in industry and research instead of court houses for a few well connected
Motels for recipients of Public Welfare
