Fitchburg Feature

March 2021

Happy Anniversary!  

Our twentieth episode is our second Fitchburg Feature.  City Councilwoman Sam Squallia joined us in a discussion largely centered on various economic and community development advances the city of Fitchburg has made recently.

Included  are the progress being made on the Twin Cities Rail Trail and the recent acquisition by the City of more than $200,000.00 of state funding to examine improvements to infrastructure in the John Fitch retail district that will make the district more climate change resilient moving forward.

Sam offered us an update on progress made for the artists village in the north downtown region as well as new businesses coming to the city including a robotics-themed brewery coming to the Route 12 corridor. 

All this and more in episode 20 of Scotts on the Rocks Politica.  

Sam Squallia is host of Discussing Fitchburg Now.

Scotts on the Rocks Politica is a political-centric broadcast that aims to lead through example.

Scott M. Graves is your host joined by a wide variety of guests from throughout the political spectrum and from a wide variety of disciplines.

Our intent is to provide rational and detailed discussion for listeners.  We’re proving we have more in common and that we’re better together than torn asunder.

Our weekly podcast features careful examinations  blendded with current events reporting from a national and local perspective.

If you appreciate local journalism with a global reach, if you want to cut through the BS and get right to the heart of the matter where it counts for your family our show was made for you.


With that in mind we’re launching an initiative we’re calling M The Media Project. This is a service of SMGraves Associates and over the months and years ahead we’re hoping to experiment with a variety of mediums, financial models and service delivery methods to deliver important news to a regional audience. 

It is our hope that we will create successful media services companies, incubated right here in central Massachusetts that have the potential of becoming replicable. 

The stakes for our society are too high for us not to take this endeavor on.  There are too many capable journalists across the country willing to take part in new and successful business enterprise dedicated to the smart delivery of local political, social and cultural stories.  The stories that tell us who we are and who we desire to be.
