Why is anyone surprised by what Stat has done or continues to do ??
He truly thinks he is above ALL laws - they just don't apply to him (he thinks !!!)...
Guess he thinks by sending out those 'happy birthday cards' to all registered voters, you'll think he's just Mr. Wonderful (NOT !!!).... Did anyone vote for him because they got this card ???
Will anyone really remember this apartment mess next time voting for him comes up ??
I'll remember and I'll keep reminding others too.

How did this turn into a topic about FFF? SMITH is the culprit here. He's like the Obama of Everett politics. SMITH snubs his nose at the authorities just like our "president"

Stat doesn't have Joe O'Donnell to get him out of trouble like FFF does.

I was down at Carol's today, and heard a few guy's talking that Mike McLaughlin is going to run for State Rep. He is running as a write in candidate. Did anyone hear or see of Mike out working for vote's? I don't think Mike is the right person to do this but good for him. Someone needed to take on Stat.

No different than FFF, they both feel they are above the law. Both have committed crimes and beleived their positions allow them to do what they want. If you think that was FFF first and only time he broke the law you better think again. He just happened to get caught this time. Same for Stat. FFF stole taxpayer money by abusing his power and Stat just doesn't want to pay his fair share. They are both greedy individuals.

FFF didn't steal taxpayer money - he took a used air conditioner. Not quite the same thing. I'm not saying what he did was right but let's get the facts straight.

What do you think paid for that air conditioner, it was taxpayer money. It's the same thing.

The Everett PD executed a search warrant and removed the stolen air conditioners from his house.
Foresteire merely laughs about the whole incident. With a friendly judge in his pocket, FFF bragged to his confidants that the worst Lona and he would receive would be slaps on the wrist. Unsurprisingly, he was right.

Imagine having nine school board members in your other pocket who hold cash preferred fundraisers every two years and, according to the BIRMINGHAM- Roosevelt education law, only you, the superintendent, actually have the final say over anyone who gets to get hired or fired or promoted or demoted in the system. Hitting the jackpot at Mohegan is chump change compared to this ongoing bonanza especially for someone who has been superintendent for over a quarter century.

E-mail your information to the Mayor's office. An E-mail is a legal document, a phone call is NOTHING {Legal Dept. is well aware of this}. You can not get any permit, parking sticker, etc if you OWE the city anything. Ex. Excise tax, water bill, tax bill, The City of Everett started "taking houses" for back taxes three years ago. It is also a public record who owns a property in Everett. IT is a public record, if a person owes taxes on his property. Anyone can get this information. You don't even have to be from Everett. You don't have to GIVE A REASON why you want this information. If ANY HESITATION on handing over the info, call the Boston Globe and ask to speak to a reporter.

You are a liar. FFF stole three NEW AIR CONDITIONERS that were purchased for school office's for use during the summer. For example: High School Guidance Office was jammed with students who needed records for college, it was jammed with students who took the summer off, but now had to get a copy of the HS Diploma for work , had many adults like me [who needed HS records to get a job with the MTA} Mrs. Romano, the clerk, had a little thermometer on her desk. It read 102 degrees. The criminal thief, FFF, stole it from the taxpayers who paid for it. His comfort at his house was more important than Everett clerks, and citizens of Everett. No one in the school dept wanted to say "What happened to the NEW air conditioners?" { I WONDER WHY?} Sooo the police department got the School Purchase Orders, The SIGNED RECEIPTS of Delivery, and a ladder and went to the outside of FFF House and wrote down SERIAL NUNMERS on the air conditioners. GUESS WHAT?{ALL SERIAL # MATCHED} FFF,THE THIEF, WAS CAUGHT. Everett Police went to Malden District Court, got an ARREST WARRENT FOR GRAND THEFT [ brand new air conditioners, each cost over 750 dollars each} Police got a call from FFF lawyer, he would voluntary "turn himself in". At the arraignment, FFF Lawyer said, the Statute of Limitations applies here. Judge dismissed that. Found FFF GUILTY and ONLY gave him one years probation. Judge THOUGHT FFF would be FIRED for CRIMINAL CONDUCT.{ This occurs in 99.9999999999999 % of America} FFF was given a ONE DAY SUSPENSION {and that SUSPENSION , WAS FOR A SUNDAY]

The sources of the funds that school committee members are supposed to use for educational purposes are derived from the state government, city government as well as the FEDERAL government. Their original source, of course, are we the taxpayers.

The state ethics board wasn't quite so friendly. They thinned out the contents of Foresteire's wallet to the tune of ten grand. Solely out of love for their leader, his lackeys were more than happy to chip in and help lessen the cheapskates pain.

Mike could not run ten feet without having a heart attack. Mike will be very lucky if he keeps his seat on the Council. Mike is one of those people who are always telling others how great he is. It would be a real challange for Mike to keep the streets clean.. I hope the Mayor gives him a job he is qualified for "sweeping the squares in Everett with a broom" He can share "all his great ideas" with people all day with that job.
