Now it all makes sense. People always go to jail when they are assaulted and their i-phone get's broken. What's the real truth? It's tough to get 30 day's unless you have a prior record of this kind of behavior. I've read that some of you have no problems with murder or slapping a girl around, dealing drugs but the rest of us in the public won't accept it. Man up and admit your mistakes.
The attacker stole his I-phone as he thought that David Gonzalez was recording him. David Gonzalez was assaulted and did not do one thing wrong. He is really pissed off as well as he should be.

"murder?, slapping a girl around??, dealing drugs???" You have the wrong people! I know both David Gonzalez and Kevin Lynch. these guys would help out anyone in need. they were wronged.

Kevin Lynch did man up in 1992 as he decided to end the five yrs of alcohol abuse and everything that goes with it. The Kevin Lynch from 1987 to 1992 no longer exists.

Kevin Lynch is 41 yrs old, the school yard fights ended in 1992 as he hasn't had any fist fight since then. He has been sober since 1993. He has a lot of great ideas that could work for this city. He has guts to face and expose the corruption.

He should have thought about that in 1992. You can never get away from the past or else history wouldn't be a subject in schools.

After being out and around Fitchburg campaigning I am shocked at the massive number of unregistered voters. Most of these voters want to be part of the voting public which is encouraging. We need to create a wide spread voter registration drive.

I encourage all Fitchburg citizens to register to vote. This can be done at the RMV during doing business with them. You can also register to vote at city hall with the clerks office. It takes roughly two minutes to fill out the form and then you will have be bale to have your voice heard.

If you see me around town, I will give you and assist you to register to vote. I have thousands of registration forms both in English and Spanish.

I encourage all Fitchburg citizens to talk to and assist their neighbors in registering to vote. I notice a lot of people that were not registered due to their belief that Government is a total failure and not interested in actually fixing any of their issues. This is an unfortunate disconnect. I have encouraged all these citizens to register to vote in order to change these facts.

I am asking for your vote. I am the candidate of the people for the people. I will speak the truth and fight for the people of Fitchburg's interests and needs.

I am not afraid to say it, the FPD is dysfunctional and needs to be repaired. Then we need to address the serious unemployment and underemployment within Fitchburg. As I have stated before our national politicians have no choice but to pass pro-American jobs bills. I want Fitchburg to be ahead of this curve, we can achieve success through infrastructure improvements and a better atmosphere for small businesses. At present the cost of starting up a small business is un feasible, we must work towards decreasing energy costs and rates.

We must also focus equal attention and to give equal energy into bettering our education system. I feel that we need to implement a school uniform policy concerning our elementary schools. I feel that this would create a better disciplined atmosphere that would accommodate our teachers as they manage our children.

As a community we can work together to repair our city so that it will function as a whole and with one focus which is to make Fitchburg a better place for all to live. We need to create a sense of community between the FPD and the community. We must demand that this department to hold officers accountable for crimes, we need to get rid of the double standard of laws that this department practices and to support the law abiding hard working Police Officers through assisting them and promoting them through a merit system. We need to restructure this department so that public safety is concern number one, we can begin by implementing a IA department and shift restructuring that addresses shift needs. As I know personally this stance can bring trouble and anger these officers but this must not deter our focus on fixing the problem. This is what our Mayor is suppose to be accomplishing. There needs to be tough negotiations but as Mayor we must have the publics safety interests of the citizens of Fitchburg in mind first and foremost.

Hello? Do you think you can keep the FPD out of your post for just once? All citizens know they can vote and where to register and vote. It is up to them to go and vote.

AAA, f-- k you and your BS Vendetta theory! Talk policy or stuff it! Let me tell you Mr. WRONGFUL ASSUMPTION, I have not had a fist fight since 1992! I grew up 20 yrs ago obviously some have NOT!

I have been campaigning and do you know what the consensus has been?? Take a guess! Well let me tell you so you don't have to make your assumptions;"corruption within the FPD". Another topic was "people are sick and tired over the CONSTANT BS that our Mayors and city councilors have cosigned over and over again with the same F---ing result.

I am of the people who are sick and tired of the same old shit! It is time for a complete new face within Fitchburg. Mr. Solomito has had plenty of time to bring change and hasn't. Mayor Wong I feel has addressed issues with half measures which usually avail nothing!

We have citizens driving into pot holes, roads that are completely destroyed beyond repair. We as a community continue to be disrespected by the FPD as there is NO legitimate Internal Affairs.

The citizens of Fitchburg want results! The citizens of Fitchburg have sacrificed enough! Our schools spill out into the streets with total disregard for road traffic.

The people are stating , ENOUGH is ENOUGH!! The elderly have been disrespected in this city. They have done all the right things in life and sacrificed every time money was needed now they see there fixed incomes being attacked by raises in their property tax, their energy bills and now there water and sewer because these forever politicians continued to CATER to the few who fu--ed everything up for a profit!

This council refused to listen and to properly weigh in opposition to new developments that allowed a new catch basin system to overflow the water treatment plant as those in opposition stated it would!!

I will make sure that the water and sewer increase is a main issue as well as the FPD corruption and allowance of it!! There are ten officers that are corrupt and should be fired, it is a clique and they are ruining law enforcement efforts and severing the trust of the community.

My proposal is if the FPD contract is self defeating to law enforcement efforts and public safety then it needs to be retract and renegotiated. I favor the Chief Bratton plan!! If you call this a vendetta then you are definitely part of the corruption directly!

I agree, with the cities overflowing budget we should have an internal affairs dept. But why stop there? We should have a CSI lab full of people and a SWAT team on duty 24 hours a day.

It's sorta obvious. You like to go somewhere and instigate a fight with your big mouth and actions. Then when you piss someone off enough they knock you out and then you sue them. Am I missing something here? Unless someone is already down, then you're the toughest guy in the crowd.

The Mayor cannot fire a police officer just because he/she doesn't like him or feels they are corrupt. You have no hard evidence to back up your alligations. Also the current contract is signed and can't be changed until it expires and even then it's the Union that has the final vote not the Mayor. The Mayor doesn't have the control of the PD or FD that you may think. Those 10 police officers you speak of most likely didn't take any of your BS over the years and did there job which pisses you off. If you had any real stones you would be taking pictures of drug dealers selling drugs instead you being the WEAK COWARD that you are and making an issue of a few parked cars.
