First of all, Tom Polito graduated in 1974 so 1980 is not right out of high school. Second of all, maybe he should listen to the voters and "GO AWAY". The voters in Dedham sent him a clear message -- he needs to take the hint. While Tom certainly gave of his time and is dedicated to Dedham, I don't believe that he was always above board or had the town's best interests at heart but more so his own interests and ego. When your ego becomes more important than the work, that's when you start losing elections -- just ask Fran O'Brien.

When coming across this blog I felt very disturbed. Mr. Polito devoted years of service to make this town better. He was the official that had a job which he was able to attend meetings during a normal working week. I don't know anyone else who cared more for this town then him.

We now have a selectman who knows nothing about the town, only cares about himself.. and if you watched the selectmans meeting the other night, he really knows nothing about the town.

I've known Mr. Polito and his family for a number of years, it was suprising the see the comment regarding his drinking since he and his father are not a drinkers, and has never been.

Kate in dedham, i beg to differ with you! Tom polito is the most openly corrupt politician i have ever known! And to answer the question regarding those meetings, this man is easily the worst selectman dedham has had. Do a little research on tom polito via the internet and see how many times he has been accused of supporting a project before the selectman when he had a personal or finanial connection. Every time..HE APPROVED EVERY ONE!!

Polito is corrupt. Someone should investigste this thug. He thinks he's a gangsta. I remember him from the Italian American club, he was running that drug infested crap shack for a while. Polito should be behind bars.

I suggest a little dpw work let him shed some pounds by raking leaves. It would be the most noticable thing he's done for this town.
