I reached out to Mayor Kirk this morning for a statement about the greasy pole.
Here is her response.
The Greasy Pole will be rebuilt. I have already met with members of the Fiesta Committee this morning and assured them the city will be their partner. It will take a community effort though. We need the Fiesta Committee, the Waterways Board and the city to all step up to the financial challenge. The Greasy Pole represents a tradition and culture that we cherish in Gloucester, and we won’t let it vanish.
Regards, Carolyn Kirk Mayor
