This was Chelsea’s Day of Infamy, the day receivership was imposed upon us because the city had become impossible to manage.
During the past 20 years, Chelsea has changed in a 1000 ways and it is a far different place than it was when the state swooped down on us and took the city over.
Chelsea manages itself today. It stands today as an example of the way a municipality should be run.
That’s a far cry from the way it was 20 years ago, when the city went to a place of shame and dishonor.
With the city today, that dreary past is prologue – and we face a bright future optimistically.
