WORCESTER MA FACTOID:

Worcester is governed by a Council-manager government with a popularly elected mayor. A city council acts as the legislative body, and the council-appointed manager handles the traditional day-to-day chief executive functions. City councilors can run as either a representative of a city district or as an at-large candidate. The winning at-large candidate who receives the greatest number of votes for mayor becomes the mayor (at-large councilor candidates must ask to be removed from the ballot for mayor if they do not want to be listed on the mayoral ballot). As a result, voters must vote for their mayoral candidate twice, once as an at-large councilor, and once as the mayor. The mayor has no more authority than other city councilors, but is the ceremonial head of the city and chair of the city council and school committee. Currently, there are 11 councilors: 6 at-large and 5 district.

Worcester Massachusetts is named after Worcester, England, according to the 2010 Census the city's population is 181,045, making it the second largest city in New England behind Boston. Worcester is located 40 miles west of Boston, and 38 miles east of Springfield. Due to its location in central Massachusetts, amidst Massachusetts' major metropolitan areas, Worcester is known as the "Heart of the Commonwealth," thus, a heart is the official symbol of the city.
