BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS FILLED WITH UNQUALIFIED HACKS, JEANINE!
IT'S ALL A SCAM AND A SHAM BY THE MCGLYNN REGIME AND ITS EXTENSION OF STEPHANIE MUCCINI-BURKE
The Chevalier Theater group faces the same problem as Hormel Stadium and every other board and commission in this city. I heard that Bill Hanney of North Shore Music Circus offered Medford 1 million to work the Chevalier and the unqualified board allegedly took a pass on it. http://www.nsmt.org/ John Costas, like Anthony Arena, Mark Rumley, Chief Sacco, all outstaying their welcome. All I've seen from Mr. Costas is the TV3 mentality that it is his turf: you be damned. How did the boards get like this? Mike McGlynn always relied on his own "omnipotent" (and the word is used loosely) one way street mind. McGlynn ignores (present tense; he's the man behind the curtain, people!) every commission except for the Bike commission - as if we need to have more bikes driving against the traffic as Cambridge and Somerville have. McGlynn made all the decisions, as does Muccini-Burke, with no input whatsoever on these commissions and boards. They think this is THEIR city and, as John Ghilain pointed out in vulgar fashion, if you don't kiss her xxx, you don't get to participate, no matter what your qualifications.
The Chevalier commission was filled with hacks, indeed, suddenly McGlynn packed boards with unqualified individuals that he believed would vote for Stephanie.
The disability commission a great case in point with a couple of agitators who thought they were suddenly ambassadors to the Vatican or something. They were vicious - so how does that help the disability community? Jeanine Camuso on the Hormel is the biggest joke since comedian Pat Paulsen or Alice Cooper running for president.
Citizens need to break through the nepotism for this city to actually work FOR the residents. It's a long, hard fight. If you do speak out you get rocks thrown at you. What do I have in common with Officer Leone? The same individual "who ....punched (Leone) once in the neck (at the police station,) has words with me like he did with Leone. Leone was sent to Winchester Hospital to be checked out, but returned to duty the following day" according to an article.
But because you and I are working HARD to help our city, by pointing out acts of violence those who are supposed to protect us resort to when they don't get their way, they will label us, libel us, denigrate us, and interfere in our honest efforts.
Because they are a BIG part of a broken system. Chevalier Theater is just one of the casualties of that sick mindset. McGlynn ignored a majority of the boards and commissions (except for the board of appeals which Mr. Arena had too much control over for too many years, thank you, Cheryl Rodriguez for dealing with that in appropriate fashion.) Suddenly - when Muccini-Burke was running against Bob Penta, the boards and commissions got filled at election time, and not with the appropriate people that SHOULD be in those positions.
Quickie rush job that McGlynn put into play to stack the deck against Penta, not to help the city. It was the HACKERAMA and did further damage to Medford. All except for the cable TV board which was ignored. Why? A public records request to Richard Trotta had Trotta RESIGN from that board rather than answer my questions. McGlynn had a dead man (Ray M.) on the board for 5 years (how disrespectful to that man's family!) while Bob Skerry and Richard Giovino were the last two individuals on the board that McGlynn ignored. Now for giving you the facts, for pointing out how deficient the McGlynn/Burke isolationist way of doing business hurts us, I set myself up to be defamed, harassed and cyber-bullied by a cop and a city solicitor (as I was last night via e mail blasts) when all this citizen is doing is waking up the sleeping giant, the voters who do not come out and help right the ship.
WHAT IS IT WITH JULY 26 AND MEDFORD COPS?
STEPHEN LEBERT PULLED HIS NUTTY 7/26/14
JOHN GHILAIN HIT OFFICER LEONE 7/26/09
"You'd better get a bodyguard." David, please send one over next Wednesday. If it is July 26, bring your umbrella to ward off angry cops!!!!
UPDATE: Cop suspended after fight in Medford Police station
note to the aggressive officer: when you see the byline of my ex girlfriend Nell Escobar Coakley know this: McGlynn had it in for you. Only what McGlynn wanted got in the newspaper under his personal typist, Nell Escobar Coakley.
