State officials met with the owner of the building housing the Romney presidential campaign. Outcome: Romney campaign doesn't want parents using their parking lot to drop off kids for the tennis/literacy summer program next door and that's that.
Tenacity, which runs the summer program, informed parents that the city is willing to give parents 15 minutes' worth of parking in resident spots to pick up, but one parent said there are no spaces right next to the tennis courts where the program is run. The garage across the street is also willing to let parents park briefly to run their kids across busy Commercial Street.
"Whatever happened to politicians kissing babies?" the parent asked.
