Citizen complaint of the day: BTD hates East Boston, and I will never stop complaining about it

A disgusted citizen files a 311 complaint about a car with Rhode Island plates just parked on Barnes Avenue overnight without a single orange ticket or tow truck pulling it away, and he or she is getting rather fed up:

BTD DOESN'T LIKE TO COME ON THIS SIDE OF THE TUNNEL AND IM SICK OF IT WE PAY TAXES ON THIS SIDE OF THE TUNNEL!!!BTD BETTER COME OR IM GOING TO KEEP COMPLAINING!!!

There are 6 reports for this same incident, not to mention a treasure trove of other Barnes Street incidents, presumably by the same squeaky wheel who must be new to urban life.

311 also answered the question re: BTD traveling the tunnel:

Illegal Parking at 58 Barnes Ave, East Boston
I do not think BTD IS coming down this street, I think they are just closing the cases!!!
CLOSED Case Resolved. CLEAR. THEY ARE. - 15 days ago #101004553348

East Boston has always been on the short end of the stick from City Hall.

When Kevin White wanted to close the only police station in East Boston in 1979, the residents blocked traffic at the entrance to the Sumner, which was then the only way into town besides the train. Kevin changed his mind.

They do pay taxes and would like the same parking enforcement that the South End and the Back Bay does. That's all.
