The highly conflicted city solicitor says this with a straight face to a retired judge:
City Solicitor Mark E. Rumley / Medford Daily Mercury on or about Nov. 16, 2008 (quoted from the 2nd Judge Jackson-Thompson hearing)
Your proclamation that you believe in free speech when cable TV is DENIED access producers like the late Pat Fiorello, Chrissy Barthelette, the late Dr. Wood, Carolyn Rosen, John Byers, Allison Goldsberry, Matt Haberstroh, Christopher Donovan, Robert M Penta, or an access TV sponsor like State Rep Paul Donato as well as this award-winning access TV and radio host - you get the picture. YOU, Mr. Rumley, are a big part of the problem, and this phony cable TV advisory board with the ex TV3 Vice President Paul Gerety on the new "board" (while Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. is under investigation by the office of the Attorney General so sensitive that the AG's office can't disclose information as "law enforcement" could be impeded!) is a sick joke played on hard-working cable TV subscribers.
MCC TV3 is under investigation by "law enforcement," if I am reading the public records document from the AG's office correctly, and one of the head cronies - Paul Gerety - has his suspicious fingers in this new, secretive "commission" or "board" - and you, Mr. Rumley, who investigated the TV3 mess, still want to play "Mickey the Dunce." Really?
IF Access TV is going to grow and flourish in the media blackout known as the city of Medford Massachusetts
