Pat was quoted in one of the papers this week being critical of an
aquarium project the City of New Bedford was paying big bucks for (this
was the story in which it was revealed that former Congressman Gerry
Studds was pulling in some big money as a "consultant") and according to
the Herald article that's why he says he was fired.
