August 1, 2017 John Costas MUST BE REMOVED from Chevalier Commission

As a person, John Costas is a likeable guy.

But he was USELESS  on the fraud board of Medford Community Cablevision, Inc., and he's been too long on the Civic Auditorium and Convention Center Commission of the Chevalier Theater.

August 1, John Costas must be - finally - relieved of his duties on the commission.



http://www.medfordma.org/boards/civic-auditorium-and-convention-center-commission/

August 1 Costas has to go: 

Members John Costas, Chair, 25 Salem St. 8/1/2017 

"The Chair?"  Remember when the "president" of Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. went on Zapp TV and sat in a chair, moved around like he was stuck there with Elephant glue, and said "entrenched," mocking former advisor to the board Chrissy Barthlette when she called them "entrenched cronies"  ????

Remember?

Well, the late Stanley Komins was entrenched too, wasn't he, until they sent him to prison before he died.

Not saying that anything is reaching the malfeasance of Komins, saying that CROP ROTATION is a good thing, and that cronyism is not.

Is the FBI Investigating Housing Authorities?

969,072 @ 1:08 pm




Attorney: Alleged FBI investigation

Attorney: Alleged FBI investigation into housing authority leads to retaliation 



 against suspended employees



 http://www.heraldnews.com/news/20170215/attorney-alleged-fbi-investigation-into-housing-authority-leads-to-retaliation-against-suspended-employees



 



FALL RIVER — Two Fall River Housing Authority administrators placed on suspension last month without pay are being targeted by the authority’s Board of Commissioners because of their involvement with a federal investigation regarding possible corruption at the housing authority, their attorney claims.

New Bedford attorney Philip N. Beauregard called the alleged FBI investigation with the housing authority as their target the “elephant in the room” regarding following a meeting of the authority’s Board of Commissioners, while noting his clients, Director of Facilities Management Michael Farrell and Emilio Estacio, an assistant supervisor in the housing authority’s operations department, have cooperated with authorities regarding issues at the housing authority.

“It’s a long-standing investigation, everybody knows it,” Beauregard said.

Farrell and Estacio had been on suspension without pay since Jan. 16 despite the housing authority’s labor lawyer Tim Zessin not yet completing an investigation into complaints by a handful of employees alleging harassment by the two managers.

Editor Joe Vig brings PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS front and center YOU CAN FIGHT CITY HALL

These Jokers Work for US
They want to TAKE from us.
It doesn't work that way!
Hold them ACCOUNTABLE


 Editor Joe Viglione brings FOIA front and center in Medford life


School Department posts information on
PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS


Citizens Need to Get Together and Fight City Hall!
People have been filing FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests for years, but until I, Joe Viglione, started publicly requesting documents, many citizens were not aware of this right. 
 
Lo and behold, City Hall has posted information on Public Records Requests. 
 
 By utilizing social media tools such as this Facebook page, blogs, Facebook live, public access tv cameras and FOIA requests the highly secretive Burke Administration has to start working for us, not taking from us without giving us the information that we deserve.

LOOK AT THIS:

Written public records request for the Medford Public Schools can be addressed to Alicia Palmer via email at mpspublicrecords@medford.k12.ma.us or via mail to 489 Winthrop Street, Medford, MA 02155.

Mayor Stephanie M. Burke has named Assistant City Solicitor Kimberly Scanlon, Esq., as the Public Records Access Officer for the City of Medford. Written public records request for the City of Medford can be addressed to Kimberly Scanlon via email at kscanlon@medford-ma.gov or via mail to 85 George P. Hassett Drive, Medford, MA 02155.

April 29, 2017 Opinion Piece:  THE DOORS TO CITY HALL
from a friend;
"Simply find out who is getting paid to install the new doors. With whom in government are they friends? To whom in government are they related? THERE'S 'yer trouble, (Medford Citizens!)  Follow the money.


Paul Mochi: "They're so beat up, so weathered...you can't restore them, especially...by the time you restore them...

Building Commissioner Paul F. Mochi stated publicly on April 26, 2017 at about 6:10 pm @ point 10:03 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjZ0T1-vvgk&feature=youtu.be that it is "not cost effective" to repair and keep the valuable doors to Medford City Hall.  

The citizens need to have all the facts regarding their property, and the work of public servants, public employees, who work for the citizens, not the other way around.


THE DOORS OF CITY HALL Citizens need to ask Mayor Burke - WHY ARE THEY ALLEGEDLY THROWING THEM AWAY?
PART 1 GO TO 9:45 minutes in I ask about the removal of the wooden doors! 14 minutes in Andy Castignetti also asks about the doors and notes that the Vatican repairs such artifacts and antiques.

Re: Massachusetts Public Records Request
      City Hall doors and repair work
  


Dear Keeper of the Records:



Building Commissioner Paul F. Mochi stated publicly on April 26, 2017 at about 6:10 pm @ point 10:03 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjZ0T1-vvgk&feature=youtu.be
that it is "not cost effective" to repair and keep the valuable doors to Medford City Hall.  The citizens need to have all the facts regarding their property, and the work of public servants, public employees, who work for the citizens, not the other way around.



This is a request under the Massachusetts Public Records Law (M. G. L. Chapter 66, Section 10). I am requesting that I be provided a copy of the following records:


1)Any and all documents providing information and estimates from the company installing the new doors at City Hall including e mails and notes to Medford City Hall and from Medford City Hall.

2)Any documents showing the payments to that company that was hired or payments that will be made to that company

3)The bid documents and postings in regard to the work now being performed or to be performed to the doors and reconstruction of city hall

4)The documents showing the value of the antique doors that building commissioner Paul F. Mochi stated on 4/26/17 would be removed


5)The documents providing weight of each door that is to be removed




6)The documents providing information on the value of the wood, the name of the wood, and the price that will be paid if the doors are sold


7)The documents providing information on how much money will be made from the sale of citizens' property during this repair period at city hall as well as the documents showing how those monies to be deposited in the "general fund" will be utilized


I recognize that you may charge reasonable costs for copies, as well as for personnel time needed to comply with this request, however, it is my opinion that this material should be posted on the city's website and be made available free of charge.
The Public Records Law requires you to provide me with a written response within 10 business days. If you cannot comply with my request, you are statutorily required to provide an explanation in writing.
Sincerely,

Joe Viglione

Keep Heidi's Charlatan Hands Off Our Access TV

968,647@9:59 pm
87 in 119 minures


The Sick Joke that is Heidi Riccio, oh, we forgot,
"Doctor" Riccio, as in Dr. Jekyll & Mrs. Hyde,

is perpetrated on the citizens of Medford by the intentionally negligent Roy E. Belson and the highly unqualified prankster, Stephanie Burke.

Stop these SOB's from destroying our city!!! 

Heidi knows jack about access tv

The ugly return of yet another Dawn Natalia.

Useless


Our hard work preserved the money - now they want to lavish our access TV fees on Voc/Tech with some woman chased out of her previous job when that mysterious Educator of the Year award surfaced!
_______________________________
According to Belson, Riccio will remain in Medford to see through the completion of the ongoing projects happening at the school, most notably the new public access television studio and the new full-service dining room and restaurant being built at the school.
