SOUTHBRIDGE — With the town election just a few weeks away and a considerably large field of Town Council candidates from which to choose, many Southbridge residents see the June 30 election as an opportunity to foster some real change.

A walk down Main Street reveals not concerns over Casella or the much-debated industrial access road, but over safety, clean parks and community involvement in town government.

"Some of the parks around here are horrible," said Kimberly Dufresne, a Southbridge resident for 22 years and mother of three children. "Southbridge needs better parks."

Dufresne said that on any given day, one can find used needles, empty alcohol containers and other trash during a trip to local recreation areas.
