alcombrigt has got to be kidding! there is proper police in tis city!? one more mayor cover up after another, and now it is just a new mayor. this kid was right. the crime rate is high and it is because the police dont investigate anything. Is he going to field a hundred calls a day? I feel bad for her that she tells the truth and she gets screwed like this by the new mayor.

looks like the battle of alcombright and the public has begun, only this was his campaign supporter! How can he get on tv and say that crime is a problem and say that the police are adequate? Looks like John Barrett did a good job.

Are one of the NAPD's new substations going to be at city hall now? That was the dumbest things alcomnotsobright has said. moroco is incompetent and now alcombriht supports him. has he been to north adams police department. breen isnt the only one who has had problems there. it looks like gailane wont have a big problem winning next year against alcomnotsobright

looks like breen has a base for bond or herself- VICTIMS of crime. Is Dick stupid?! how can he take the side of the police when so many citizens are mad at them. oh yeah, they did the investigation on their own, only AFTER the new mayor calls them. its the same thing barret used to have to do, only with a new mayor. yeah, real change onthe horison

kirsh was shot down by her man alcombright! i guess no one can fight city hall! atleast barrett knew who his friends were and kept them happy. she seems likeit would be better to have her on your side than against you. this saga will continue and that woman will win against all of them!

so not true, morocco was pissed all week because alcombright was up his ass. he did as little aspossible, even with dick's phone calls. kirsch wouldn't let it go, and caleld alcombright alot morthan once, ask her, she told everyone at the inauguration that dick and her were in constant contact that week and emails also. another two years of lies.

how is dick going to field all these calls at city hall now that it is the new 911 station? one stop shopping, just like barrett. why can't we just get good police instead of calling the mayor like we did for 26 years

It just doesn't seem appropriate to call the Mayor of North Adams to get police work done. Is he available 24/7 for these calls, because there will be hundreds? Why doesn't he just get someone competent to run public safety? Jennifer knows what she is talking about. Alot of cities have public meetings and citizen review boards. The Mayor shouldn't be the only oversight. Nothing has really changed, in that regard.

well, does Mayor Alcombright think it is "adequate" to have the homeowner catch the burglar. That is what the police said they were waiting for someone to do.

The only difference between law enforcement in North Adams now that Alcombright is mayor, is that when his supporters call him to yell at the cops, they go to the local paper because there is transparency! GOOD LUCK, with the open forum in North Adams now that we have Alcombright we can see how inadequate the barrett administration was. barrett was able to atleast keep his people quiet when he did them favors. alcombright has a freeforall on his hands!

will never happen. Alcombright obviously doesn't get it. he should never have to tell people to come to him for help withthe police and then say that the cops are doing a good job. that is self-contradictory. maybe he's screwed because Kirsch helped him campaign, and she knows what she is talking about, and he is listening to the old administration. That is blatantly stupid on his part.

keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. Alcombright is doing a good job of that. except he isnt going to have any friends left, and only enemies. morocco doesnt care about him, he is going to retire. the city could fall to sh** and he wont care as long as he gets his pension.

is that a serious statement by ou rnew mayor? scary. sounds alot like barrett. only barrett would have called kirsch and told her to shut up and none of us would be the wiser,a nd the city could keep falling apart around us the way it has with morocco at the healm.

Gee, for all the complaining, sure looks like one person was arrested, two more are being sought, and most of the stolen items have been returned. Word is also out there that if Jennifer hadn't blabbed so much, the thieves wouldn't have thrown the laptops in the river instead of trying to fence them, and they might have been recovered.

I heard that Kathy Eade is no longer speaking to Mayor Alcombright, and now Jennifer Breen Kirsch probably won't either, and both of those people worked for Martha Coakley. Who does Mayor Alcombright have left to get us federal aid if all of her friends are mad at the mayor?

If Jennifer hadn't "blabbed" so much no one would have been arrested in the first place. All burglaries should get this much coverage. It won't happen.
