Yes I am jealous. My point is this state is full of these 'no show jobs' and keep raising taxes to pay for them. I have to work for a living while these sponges keep sucking money out of my wallet and do very little but make my life harder.

With all due respect, you realize that you live in Massachusetts right? The layers of beuracracy are long since been established. If you are looking for a system reboot, then that is a different subject than the one Ms Buckley is advocating for.

Just so we are clear on what the witch hunt (article/i-team report) is all about.....its about Ms Buckley wanting the job of ROD. Please dont think for a second that this is her stance against everything that is wrong with Massachusetts.

Does anyone seriously think that this is about Ms Buckley wannting the position to be eliminated? Seriously!?!??

Is it a state job? So, it is one of those elected positions where name recognition counts right? Just checking!
Maybe you should ask all those who vote what exactly Register of deeds is responsible for and who is the register of deeds?? I bet over 90%of those 11% of registered voters who actually vote would state they do not know the answer to either question!!!
Do a little test,ask your family the two questions!!
Here's a test for the public:

What does a city councilor do?
What does a school committee member do?

I would say that a fair amount of citizens may have a better idea because these meetings are shown on local access television as well as the fact that they are closer to their hearts because of neighborhood issues and school issues.

The answer to who the ROD answers to is....the voters. It is clear that Ms Buckley does not know what the ROD position entails.

Why, do you ask?
1st . She is complaining about something that is happening well with the boundaries and operating procedures set fourth. Hence, she is complaining about the rules of engagement and the area that they are executed in.
2nd. She has shown on numerous occasions her inability to find herself holding the position of ROD. We are not just talking about this past election folks! It's like saying that ......"I can do a better job doing your taxes for you than so-n-so. I just don't have what it takes to get you to walk in my door to gain your patronage".

Let's try to keep this in perspective.

Be very careful throwing around fraud accusations. There is unequivocally no evidence that even remotely suggests that the Ms Daigneault has crossed any ethical boundaries or violated any Mass General Laws.

In fact, making such a statement puts you more in line with violating MGLs protecting against slander and libel actions.

Let's bring this back to the real story.....Ms Buckley is crushed by her defeat and seemly will go to any lengths to obtain retribution via slanderous revenge tactics.

Sorry to disappoint, but, I am not Ms Daigneault.

If you want to call someone out, let's refer to Ms Buckley's public comments that she nor her campaign reached out to the ITeam. There could not have been a more obvious "spin control" statement. Just another example of Ms Buckley's political prowess remaining in absentia.

Your comment is exactly what is wrong with the whole discussion and continues to muddy the waters with more ridiculous accusations.

This is a personal which hunt being executed by Ms Buckley and her minions. The problem is, her minions are following someone who can't take her own professional career to the next level.

So, here's a good idea by Ms Buckley because she cant make it happen professionally......lets make it personal.

I still have not heard one thing that points to Ms Daigneaults actions crossing any ethical or legal boundries.

This whole rant is utterly ridiculous and unprofessional!

So it is totally ethical to take a paycheck and rarely show up @ work. If she has no worries, she should let her staff be interviewed by either the newspaper or I team. what does Jack Mc Laughlin have to say?

Her own people say it's a running joke that she never shows up for work. How does that have anything to do with Buckley being jelous?

Once again, you fail to report any ethical or legal violations.

Essentially, what you are saying is, is that your perception is one that thinks that her actions are unethical. I get it. However, just because you wish something was different does not give you the right to attack someone personally and professionally.

It would not surprise me if you were one of those people who think it is not a good idea to keep score in youth sports. Grow up.

As for her staff and JL. I have no idea who either are and/or their availability.

That being said, perhaps the person who should be being asked a question is...yourself. Ask yourself, what are you feeling upset about. Then, after you have identified your feeling (or feelings) find out if that (or they) have any legal or ethical shortcomings. Dont ask yourself whether you like it ......because that sentiment should be expressed on election day.

Now, if the staff suffers from low morale and want the ROD to be more available and provide a boost to their working environment. Then, once again, we are discussing a entirely different matter.

Please make up your mind as to what exactly you are taking exception to. If you are left searching for answers.....maybe you could ask the ROD staff or JL?

Or, have they been sequestered ......as you would like people to think?

One of the reason's Ms Buckley was running for the position was that it has been known for a number of years that Reynolds Daigneault is using the position as a vacation resort! She hasn't been a full time Register from the beginning, she comes & goes as she pleases & is laughing all of the way to the bank!

By her own people....do you mean Buckley sympathizers (who work in the office) and some title examiners (who's need is slowly being phased out by technology)?

Clearly, this is an operation in self preservation. Ms Buckley (who just HAPPENS to be a title examiner) can see the writing on the wall. If she was the ROD, she would have the ability to slow that change.

Let's not get all self righteous here. Ms Buckley has shown a clear motive.

Okay. In keeping with that argument......did Ms Buckley ever run for ROD before this past election?

I like how you write ROD because that is what she is sticking to everyone in the state. Why are you trying to justify her getting paid 90k a year for not showing up at work? I understand it's just another useless Gov't job as all properties have already have been put on record but she should at least make an effort to show she is worth the salary.

When someone is getting paid to do a job you expect them to show up. Take our President for example. During a time where there is a bad economy, wars over seas looming higher taxes he's not on vacation getting golf lessons...

My position has (and will continue to be) been tht Ms Daigneault has not made ethical or legal missteps. Your perception of the situation may tell you different. You have every right to voice your displeasure and certain cast a vote that you think is appropriate.

What you don't have a right to do, is make slanderous statements because you wished things were different.

If the system is flawed....then talk about changing the system.

This is a personal witch hunt where Ms Buckley wished things were different.
