There may not be anything "official" for days. They are saying Wayne won by very little but there's a lot of "questionable" votes for him that were counted.

This is what happens when you throw away votes on people that are not even running and it's same old same old with absentee ballots.

I wont believe it until the state comes in and verifies those absentees and checks those rigged machines....like at the rec center.
Oh no

Who is the "they"?
I heard Hanlon was up by 20-30 votes. That was from someone at the city clerk's office.

Knowing that we have a huge problem with absentee ballots the states inspector general should come in and do an audit of everyone that is listed as wanting to be assigned an absentee ballot caster. it will be the only thing to clear up the validity of our elected officials. Lets get this done by contacting our state senator.

wow..any totals number of votes for each? I very interested in how many write ins Mr. Hanlon got vs Waynes ballots cast. 49 votes may be to many to get back in a re count unless they find some abnormalities in absentee balloting. I wonder if any of the absentee voters ever tried to also vote at the polling places? Hmmmm?

Wayne Matewsky 1258

John Hanlon 1209

Rosa DiFlorio 747

Dennis Giantassio 401

Joe McGonagle 43

Joe Santagate 10

This is all unofficial and a lot of unanswered questions so things can change.

Lets also not forget that Stat Smith is being sentenced on Friday, April 5th and his "accomplices" will be named.

Wayne could be the shortest State Rep in world history!

I don't understand why he would even get 2 votes (1 of those being from himself, oh yea the second one from his mother)....The votes from 3 up is difficult to understand ....

So someone can berate and belittle a handicapped child or member of the human race by a politician and that politician can still get elected?? What's wrong with you people?

Were you there, do you know what really happened that night? Wayne says he was set up and never made fun of anyone. I now know exactly what happened that night and Wayne did not make fun of any little girl handicapped or not. Waynes group had no idea anyone was handicapped. They just wanted to change seats so they could finish eating and when it could not be done it caused them to get a bit upset considering what was going on around them. Again now at no time did anyone realize a handicapped girl was sitting at the table. The situation was then blown absurdly out of proportions for solely political reasons. I'm really glad that people put some thought into that situation before deciding who to vote for. What politician would ever do something like what was said a few weeks before the biggest election of there lives? Think about it..no way could it have gone down like what was being said.

I have personally spoken with people that have voted by absentee for him so I can say this!

He crosses the line, he goes to the elderly is all nice then gives them an absentee and when they say no, I'll go to the polls, he gets demanding and practically forces them to do the absentee right there and he TAKES THEM which is a NO NO. He's been doing this for YEARS and still he gets away with it.

Some of the elderly went to vote over the counter at city hall and didnt even realize they voted by absentee. He's a despicable disgrace that even told the elderly if they did not fill it out and forgot to vote, their benefits would get cut because he's the only one who will never cut their benefits.

That's a LIE and not the way it works but the elderly do not know any better and should not be coerced in that way. They get scared when they hear "cut benefits" and shame on him for doing that to them for his own personal gain. Disgrace of a human being.

Hey I know,
What a lot of people DON'T KNOW is that Wayne sits on the board of commissioners for the Everett Housing Authority. He spends countless hours in the towers with the elderly. He represents the labor position on that board not the tenants representative spot. I think being in a position of power may be intimidating to the seniors he "suggest" doing the absentee ballot route.

I KNOW: I have heard what you say over and over. He goes for the weakest link and then coerces them to vote for him - so he can save their benefits. What a despicable person he is. Feel bad for the elderly who are frail and afraid.

Someone must know he takes the ballots - but nothing is done - shame, shame...

Well,
You mention Smith will be sentenced on fri and I for one am very happy, but you say he'll be mentioning accomplices? if I'm not mistaken he pled guilty and said he did it alone, so I don''t think Wayne will be involved on fri which is a shame because loads of people believe he taught Smith how to do it.

Senator DiDominico should insist that secretary Galvin and the inspector general do a total audit of Everetts absentee ballots including interviewing each and everyone of them. I would be willing to bet some have died and others are in nursing homes outside of Everett and some don't have the mental capacity to understand what is going on. We need to address this to rebuild voter confidence in Everett or we'll keep second guessing who really won.
