Keep Drug Dealers Off The Pole

This petition had 258 supporters

Everyone celebrates "Fiesta Weekend" in their own way every year but there are a few constants.  We love the seine boat races, the procession on Sunday and of course, the greasy pole.  Every greasy pole walker wants that flag.  They want to be hoisted onto the shoulders of their fellow walkers and earn their year long bragging rights.  Little kids stand on the beach and watch these guys and want to be just like these men that we are celebrating.  At what point do we, as a community, take a stand to ensure that these walkers are men who deserve the recognition and praise?  Those who are known to be involved in the distribution of the drugs that are killing our family, friends and neighbors, should NOT be given that opportunity.  Men who are contributing to the drug problems that Gloucester has recently been working so hard to overcome, should be denied the right to walk regardless of their past wins.  The integrity of Fiesta and our community celebration needs to be brought back and upheld for years to come.  Help me, as the daughter of a fisherman, be the change.
