Holidays cancelled

Posted by Jeremy Shulkin

The state’s fiscal situation has gotten so dire that not only are services and state positions being cut, but so are holidays.

According to State Senator Harriette Chandler, in the 2011 state budget both Bunker Hill Day and Evacuation Day, two holidays big in Suffolk County, are “no more”–meaning they’ll still be commemorated, but public buildings would stay open.

State Rep. Lew Evangelidis (R-Holden), who wrote a critical op-ed in the Telegram about closing the public sector on Bunker Hill Day, should be pleased with this decision.
