Wow! I realize Wong desperately wants a new City Hall but most of us thought she would stop short of arson.

I know you're trying to be funny but I missed the joke. Why would she burn a place that's about to fall down? I don't get it.

If the city hall had a functional fire alarm system, less damage may have been the result. Without a working system, there isn't any method for early detection and the building can burn until a person sees a fire or the old sprinkler system does its job.

A fire alarm system would have detected the smoke, shutdown the HVAC unit so it wouldn't continue to feed fresh air to the fire, and notify the fire department without human intervention.

The fire alarm panel on the first floor has NEVER been put into service...the city hall is a death just waiting to happen.

There should be a law where no one that has been on a phyche med should be able to carry. There should be an automatic flag raised if the person asking for a permit has ever been on these meds or is on the meds.

Just because nobody can understand her posts that doesn't mean she has mental issues.

I agree with her that people on meds should not be able to have guns or golf clubs.

It was Kevin Lynch who made the post? Why are you saying "her" or was that a freudian slip?

He hasn't posted to the forum in a few days. Perhaps he's recovering from a sex change operation.

Well then, don't vote for any of them. They are all bad people and bad for Fitchburg. Don't waste your vote on a convicted felon. He'll kill the city.

The funny thing about Lynch is he takes credit for Wong hiring more police.

In a way he may be right. After all of the letters and whacky emails he sent to city hall she realized the city needs more protection.....from HIM.

Do you think that City Hall should be condemned? I say Yes. When is enough really enough?

I swear every thread goes back to lynch and his haters. It sounds like a soap on Fitchburg topic. Which may I remind you is public for everyone to see. I like that lynch has opinions of the police and the trash problem. And all you people do is make fun of him. You never really come up with any solutions. Like I said sounds like a soap and I've read a lot of lynch's posts about how he never murdered that man that night. Sounds like he has more proof than any of you guys have. You just call him names and ask him questions that he answers. What do you guys do to make the city better? He calls the crooks out.
