I saw today (boston.com) that the Senate voted to eliminate Evacuation Day and Bunker Hill Day holidays. I’ve lived here for more than 20 years and have been stumped why they still exist. We all know one is just an excuse for St Patrick’s Day partying by Boston people. If you chopped out Patriots Day too, most of us would not miss it. Almost all of us in the private sector have to work anyway.
Will you be voting to eliminate them? I certainly hope so. I know, relative to a $28B budget, this is minimal, but symbolically it is a good thing.
