Last night, April 20, 2015, the Comcast contract expired, 9 months after Rumley's demand was not met, and the now lame-duck Mayor refused to act as the City of Lynn did. However, the Medford problems are far, far more egregious as Frank Pilleri had a troubled 25 or more years as board president allegedly utilizing phony board meetings, phony board members listed with the Sec. of Commonwealth, and no accountability.
They cheated the citizens out of access TV when they were in operation; retired Judge Marie O. Jackson-Thompson found they were running a "private, MCC access." Then, the highly conflicted Mayor Michael J. McGlynn, abusing the access channel to promote himself but DENYING other candidates the same opportunity, meets the vindictive cronies from MCC TV3 at two pizza parlors taking no notes, a public records request denied access to whatever was spoken at the meeting. How clever of the Mayor, cut a deal with the access station he eventually was forced to shut down and allow their mischief and wrongful conduct to continue.
Yet we citizens are left to twist in the wind because the police and the government officials fail to do their job in a TIMELY and EFFECTIVE way.
