#1 Pay to Park
No sane person would vote for a candidate endorsing the biggest ripoff in Medford since Tv3.
#2 No New Police Station
Does anyone think citizens don't want to put public safety first? So Mrs. La-Dee-Dah, Stephony Burke doesn't give a damn about a new police station, and she becomes Mayor?
Preposterous. In what reality?
#3 A Plan for Rebuilding Medford
Councilor Penta, working for the people for thirty-six straight years, has a sound plan for the future of our city.
Mrs. Burke dusted off old plans the Mayor deep-sixed. You really think this was a magnet for votes? Really? Truly? Ya Think???
#4 Public Access TV
The Director of Personnel and Budget Director could have flexed her muscles and given transparency to the citizens in the most important election since McGlynn seized power twenty eight years ago. No, she ran from transparency like juvenile Paul Camuso on a packie run looking over his shoulder to escape the local constabulary.
Please. Use some common sense, citizens. Stephanie Burke couldn't go on TV, she lost the two debates and threw mud at her opponent.
Shame on her.
#5 Endorsement from Paul A. Camuso
Anyone notice the huge applause for Bob Penta last night, and far less applause for Camuso?
What I truly believe, with every fiber of my being, is that McGlynn hijacked about 1,000 votes to beneft Dello Russo, Caraviello, Question 1, Adam Knight, Stephanie Burke and...believe it or not, John Falco.
Now this is what could truly trip them up.
Mr. Falco had an enormous support, but a novice council candidate getting over 6K?
That's the RED FLAG that makes one wonder:
a)Why - if it is true - would Mr. Falco get such a huge bump? Maybe these are legit, but logical minds pause seeing these numbers.
b)is Mr. Falco the new "chosen one." God knows Mrs. Burke and Mike McGlynn are already at odds.
Dello Russo did little or no leg work. He gets
5,354 in the general election after a very poor showing of 1,644 in the primary? You gotta be kidding?
- Fred Dello Russo: 1,644
Very suspicious. No work and ...voila...you find an additional Three Thousand Seven Hundred and Ten votes somewhere? Yeah, via a certain government official's magic wand...
