Who were the school committee members who attacked a certain alderman after the meeting about their pay raises. The story goes that they surrounded his car and berated him for not voting yes. Let's hear it for those rough guys, picking on an 83 year old man.

Real tough guys !!!! The police were called to the scene !!! How can these disgusting elected officials act in such an uncouth manner ??? Low class scumbags !!!! And worse, they sit on the school committee - what an example for our students....They shouldn't even show their faces in this city !!!!

Sal Sachetta is a real gentleman - he is not senile by any means - this whole group needs to issue a huge public apology to him.

Sal was elected by the people (as were these idiots)....He voted in the way he felt was right for the city and taxpayers....

These members knew the salary (or stipend or whatever they call it) before they decided to run for office, no one made them run !!!!

How many of us ask our boss to please DOUBLE my salary ...Heck we're lucky to hold onto our jobs with NO raise in salary at all ...

Did the Leader-Herald carry this story today ???

Mr. Sachetta: If you, or your family reads this, hold your head high, you have more integrity and interest in our city than any of these school committee members. You are owed a HUGE apology for their actions.

Nothing but money grubbing politicians and their supporters in this city.

If there wasn't money attached to something they do for the city, they wouldn't be bothered.

It is really disgraceful.

$11K a year for attending meetings. If they cared they would not accept any pay and/or donate it.

This city gets worse by the day.

Our inept "leader's" decisions and actions will soon come home to roost and our remaining true residents will be left holding the bag.

What have you (or the city) done for me lately seems to be the common thread and money makes them quiet. Not all but most.

How about all alderman/school committee members no longer get paid at all. Do you think voters would support this? God forbid someone even bring this idea up.

Disgusting.

I thought it really couldn't get worse around here, yet it does.

Again Fat Boy who Supposedly runs this city has done nothing for any Taxpayer in this city in the last 3 years.
He has raised taxes
He has done nothing about the corruption
He has done nothing about constantly creating Jobs
He has done nothing about pay raises.
He has done nothing about hiring new people.
He has done nothing about Wayne Matewsky.
He has done nothing to lower the taxes
He has cost all taxpayers money every year he has been in office
He has done nothing for me since he has been in office.

One thing he has done he has forced many of the original people who lived in Everett for many years to either sell-rent-or leave town.

He has made sure his fat ass is in the weekly Everett news papers every week. Do you people believe his bullshit picture/stories every week.

He has cost me a lot of tax monies these last 3 years.

Please get this money hungry fat ass out of office and get someone else in office.

We tax payers need a break and the Casino is not the answer.

Never voted for fatso and never will, please take a good hard look and see if you can afford the tax raise every year, take a good look down the road and what do you see, raise after raise for our taxes it will never go down even if the casino is approved and we get chosen to have it built here in Everett.

People get real and smell the coffee Everett has gone backwards since he has been in office and we will never see day light unless this money hungry Mayor if you want to call him is re-elected.

Please get out and vote No for the Casino and do not re-elect DiMaria

We are paying Frank Parker to serve on the School Board and we play his Health Insurance (14K yr?) and he owes the City of Everett almost 40K in back water bills and property taxes?? Why are we giving money to someone who owes the City of Everett so much money?
Sounds like Mr. Parker has a really good thing going. Who will Vote for this Scoundrel? Hopefully, he will be REMOVED from our School Board. The Board has enough bad publicity right now; especially after they harassed Mr. Sachetta ....so why didn't the Everett Police arrest or charge anyone for their misconduct? You cannot blame the Superintendent for other people's bad behavior.

Do you think those guys acted without the superintendent's approval? I'm sure he is the man behind the curtain.

Has FFF addressed the situation with the school committee members who bullied Mr. Sachetta? This confrontation should not be swept under the rug!!!! If these members did this to Mr. Sachetta, and all evidence points that way, why weren't these members arrested in the parking lot that evening by the police who were called to this harrassing episode?

So far Mr. Sachetta has declined to press charges - I hope he is not intimidated to do this. He has more class than most people I know. He is not senile whatsoever and just because of his age, that should never be inferred (but I heard it was)....

This was blatant harrassment of an elder person and that is against the law - Just what were these school committee members thinking??? Spoiled brats they didn't get the raise (double their salary) so they pull this stunt !!!!! It is so outrageous.

And these 'schools are Everett's pride" .... not with these members it's not !!! What pride is there in the school's elected officials?? What message does that send to our students ????....

Either the mayor (if he's not out clubbing with Steve W) or FFF needs to have them render their resignations NOW !!!..... We need a clean slate to start over and how can that happen since they are running unopposed in the upcoming election ????? How can they have any credibility ???? Answer: They do not have any credibility whatsoever....

No raises should be given, none, zero .... Don't like what is offered in the way of payment for being on the school committee, don't run ..... You knew what the payment was when you ran for this position.

Can someone please clarify if they are eligible for health insurance or not....I don't think they are but I'm not 100% sure.....

This city has been embarrassed by our elected officials no end...Time to start with a new slate.....

When the school committee first asked to be paid, part of the agreement was that they were not supposed to receive health insurance. But that was an informal rather than a binding agreement. So who knows what could be happening now right now?

However, just like the new city council, the school committee will not be eligible for health insurance under the new charter while holding elected office.

What's less clear is if the members of either body, when they retire and have enough service time in, will be able to get health insurance as part of a retirement. Does state retirement law may trump the charter? It seemed like this issue was going to be discussed a couple of weeks ago at a BOA meeting, but they never really got into that part of the issue. What may that tell you?

Citizens shouldn't be surprised that unpleasant situations occur when one person is given virtually unlimited power as does the school superintendent. His followers, in this case his minions on the school board , feel a certain sense of entitlement and when denied resort to boorish tactics reminiscent of the brownshirts in Germany in the 1930's and 1940's. Even Hitler reacted to the excesses of the S.A. Will Forestiere do the same? Time will tell.

It is difficult to understand the extent of greed that these rascals exhibit. How many of them have had relatives put on the school department payroll in positions for they were not qualified,save for superintendent requests for waivers from the state, that swelled their the family income a great deal more than the $6500 payraise that they are demanding?

Everyone should stop paying their taxes and water/sewer bills to the City just like Frank, we'll pay up when he pays up! He collects money from the City and owes the City that is the best part.

Anyone know who is running this time around for school committee? I have heard they are ALL running unopposed - anyone for a fact that is true ???

Does the city still pay for Health insurance for the school committee? I was under the understand that was stopped when they first got paid a salary? True or false ?

The scenario that happened with Sal S. being bullied by the school committee members for not voting for their request to double their salary is totally unacceptable and they should all be asked to resign !!!
Wish I could have my salary doubled !!! They willingly ran for school committee, knowing what the salary was....

I believe they all are employed elsewhere and work as school committee members for a very small stipen, because of a genuine concern for the youth of Everett. I do not think they need the insurance. Also, there is a good chance that Parker's ex wife is responsible for the property tax in question. He's one of the good guys here in Everett. I don't think that any members are needy for money. If Panarese and Ela where there at the supposed bully-fest, they are the leaders and should be the target of anger, not Parker.
