Somerville Politician: Don't Eat at Burger King This Winter

Snowy.

Snowy.

Somerville alderman Maryann Heuston wants to dethrone a local Burger King for failing to shovel when it snows. Apparently, the Burger King at 185 Somerville Ave. never cleaned up after the blizzard, and it's been an ongoing issue at this particular BK branch. The Globe quotes Heuston, who is most certainly not having things her way, as saying, "If the average Joe can go out there and shovel their own sidewalk, or in some cases pay people to go out there and shovel their own sidewalk, a large corporation like Burger King should be ashamed of itself." A letter has been penned to the CEO, grilling the corporation on its snow-removal habits. [Globe]
