I will vote for Wayne Matewsky. That guy has been a Councilman since he was about 18. Started several traditions in Everett like a "Halloween Party" for kids. Ran for Alderman at large won by a large majority. ENJOYS SERVING THE PEOPLE. Stat, a good man, has passed one bill in the House. A bill that allows Police men to retire at 55 with 80 % of salary, plus health insurance for life. PLUS...NOW THEY CAN RETURN TO WORK... AFTER RETIRING....and collect {874.000 A DAY} WORKING DETAILS. So a policeman now can collect 82,000 in retirement benefits PLUS 16,800 A MONTH in "detail work" for the city. Who pays for Stat's FOLLY. You the taxpayers. Stat does the Police Association ...A FAVOR....and the people of Everett pay MILLIONS for this over the next 5 years.

I'm all for Stat Smith.

I have heard many rumors and speculations about Mr Matewsky. I would not like to see him in the state house, I don't even want him in city government.

Rumors and speculations.....I don't hang with that crowd. But I did see Stat, almost punch a Joe Hickey supporter in Everett Square.....because...."Jo e Hickey was not allowing Stat "TO ENJOY HIS PRIMARY VICTORY" Joe was out campaining with 50 people that beautiful Saturday morning. STAT-ISFIED....But you like rumors.....Example..."One guy" from the Everett area who is married was driving down Broadway from the power plant towards Everett Square with his girlfriend who worked at the plant. "The guy" was totally drunk went up on the curve and hit the wire fence on Broadway. "THE guy" jumped out of the car and RAN, and told the girlfriend "NOT TO SAY ANYTHING".......The guys wife soon found out, and things have not been the same at home.

I don't care much for rumor and speculation either, but one thing I have learned about Everett over the years is, "where there is smoke, there is usually fire. Take as an example the Bob Shea allegations, rumor and speculation swirled around him for years.

I personally would never and never have voted for Wayne for any office. I have known him for years and I feel there are very few people who are more phony than he is. He does know how to campaign and Smith is probably in for a tough race. I have caught him in many lies. I, too, have heard the rumors over the years but cannot confirm them.

I have heard dozens of rumors about Stat. But, I do not give them any validity. May the better man win the election.

I'm going for Stat but the one thing I don't like is the fact I emailed him on a few occasions and he never responded. I don't like Matewsky's tactics so I will go for Stat but Stat should consider a short response to people, especially that email him on serious concerns. If he cant comment, he should say "I cant comment at the moment, etc..." but get back to people. Matewsky conveniently does not use email.I still say out of the two, Stat is the man for the job. I have not seen one thing that Matewsky has done as Alderman at Large for the people.

Yea..........I will still vote for Stat. I'm not happy that he doesn't respond to email but I think only two out of the entire BOA and CC did. He's the lesser of two evils and when Stat believes in something, he stands by it so I respect that.

Wayne Matewsky had his "Announcement Party" this Saturday afternoon. There were 172 people present. I have no idea if that is a large, medium or small crowd. But they were enthusiastic, and Everett citizens are lucky to have a choice for state representative.

Matewsky used to own a bar. He owned "Rumors" (the brazilian place now) years ago but I think back then it was called The Rendevous.

Matewsky is running for the wrong reason He had an out with Smith so he wants to get even. That is certainly no reason to run for the same office. I think that's dirty I don't want someone in office for that reason just to get back at someone else take your disagreement elsewhere, not in the voting booth

Matewsky is running because he had an argument with Smith.. They were good friends. You can't just run for office because you want to get even with someone. That's a disgrace. Holding an office is sacred to the people who wants Matewsky in there for that reason

Isn't a dispute with someone at least the starting point for most, but not all, of Everett political contests? I can think of Ragucci/McCarthy, Ragucci/Hanlon and Hanlon/McGonagle for starters. I'm not saying that Wayne is a great candidate for the position but, why should he have to be any different?
