If any Everett person complains that they will now be represented by Wayne Matewski, I will then asked did you vote? What a disgrace. An embarrassment. Everett you have sunk to a new low.

If he did win it will be a one and done deal for him im sure. I cant see him winning a re-election bid if he ever runs again for the state rep spot.

Well who could seriously see him winning this special race after his disgraceful episode at the Tx Roadhouse ????

Counting the total votes from another board it's a disgrace that only about 3500 voters came out. This was probably one of the most important votes in Everett's history to get us on the right track to straighten out this whole mess. We need the state to step in and correct the absentee crap. I think it discourages a lot of people from participating in voting thinking that it's rigged and it is according to Stat Smiths guilty pled.

People just become apathetic ... turn their heads and say it's no use ...

Isn't it this weekend our wonderful ethics board results will be heard -?? Just thinking - if Wayne wins, becomes state rep, will the board want to 'offend' their new state rep - who could possibly do favors for any one of them??? Whereas, if he lost, well then the board could come to a logical conclusion as to what transpired that day at the Roadhouse - w/o fear of harming relations with a state rep ????? Make me wonder ..... what they knew and when they knew it ....

It wasn't so long ago that the mayor of ??? Mayor of Melrose was elected by just one vote - anyone remember that ?? So your votes do count.

Dennis came in last so there were 400 +/- votes just wasted - he is another one so doesn't give a straight answer to tough questions. Rosa - again took votes that possibly could have gone to John - no way could she win but nooooo these people just had to try !!!!

Everett resident,

I was so glad to see Joe M's write in was only 43 but he could have stated he supported Hanlon so shame on him, and that moron Joe Santigate gets in the race to see his own name in the paper at the last minute to steal 10 votes.
Saddest thing of all only 3500 +/- votes in total in such an important race.

The only way that was guaranteed for Wayno not to win this election would have been for one (or more) of the independent candidates to have done the right thing for city, since an independent never would have won, and have stepped aside and thrown their support behind Hanlon. And because egos were involved, that was never going to happen.

Hanlon pushed hard and came close. But his past just caught up to him. He was a bad mayor. Not just my opinion. A sitting mayor placing third in a primary says that a lot of people thought/think that. But that said, I think that he would have made in an OK state rep as long as his office staff didn't drag him down, as his city staff did.
Right to run

Rosa and Dennis had just as much right to run as any of the rest of them. Personally, I would never vote for either of them.

I am also glad that McGonagle, Mangan and Cornellio didn't come out and endorse anyone. Let the chips fall where they may. The majority of votes went to Wayne. Everett is getting what it deserves.

Hanlon came close and if he had done things a little differently in regards to this election, we probably would of had a different State Rep. elected.

It's not a good day for Everett.

Not saying that Rosa and/or Dennis didn't have a right to run. Just that things probably would have been different if they put the true needs of the city first since they really didn't have much of a chance of winning. That was the only guaranteed way to have a strong chance of taking Wayno down, IMHO.

Dear ROSA,
Thank you for being "Rosa" ! You never brought anything to the table except now! Thank you for giving us Wayne Matewski!
Everetts future? Casino, Very high taxes, Losing Comercial business, Tebow/dump, A mayor who hired someone to do his job @125,000 a year and gave himself a raise that the boa and cc voted for!
This is what the peole of this city have done to themselfs.
I think Chelsea is looking better and better each day.

Hopefully they will implement drug testing in the State House. Although Wayno will have someone else piss in the cup for him..Maybe his buddy BD who gets him his fix's.

Hanlon had no business getting in this election what does it take for him to go away. Worst Mayor Everett ever had. He had his chance before, could not even hire the proper people when elected to Mayor. Did everything wrong from the day he took office and had the entire common council and Alderman against him within a month that I remember. Please go away and don't run for anything else

Hanlon was inept while Mayor because he listened to the wrong people. Budget Director got him involved in everything bad because she did not like people. She was his downfall.
