WHERE HAS CONRY AND DINATALE BEEN ?? They allowed the FPD to run a COMPLETE MUCK and did nothing to control it! This is the first year where Fitchburg has shown improvement!!!!!
What we need is for DiNatale to leave, Conry to LEAVE and Kaddy to LEAVE!! These three have allowed this city to run like a field of rotten garbage!!!!!!!!!
How dare you state anything!!! These five officers have been retitred for the past ten years on the job! How dare you!!!
The fitchburg police department is stuck with a bunch of do nothing cops in the middle to the top!
The Chief is doing a great job but we are still hampered with this dead weight! We demand progress; NOT THE SAME OLD!
I will be searching out election papers for all these positions; it is about time we run things the right way!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with the mayor looking into the possibility of hiri ng civil dispatchers for both the fire and police combined!! This move would add 9 active patrolmen to the street!
Conry and DiNatale; you MUST ANSWER TO WHY YOU WANT THESE DO NOTHING JOBS TO BE FILLED! tHESE FIVE ARE INACTIVE JOBS!!
wE NEED TO realign the FPD so that it operates the way that it should. Then we can examine what positions are needed to be filled!
The problem all these years has been unaccountability. These politicians have been throwing money at the FPD without results. The more police we had the higher the crime rate!!! EXPLAIN this fact logically before we listen to what you have to say with any relevance!
Put them to the test Mayor; go ahead vote against the Mayors Budget and we will picket you out of office!!!! We have had ENOUGH with you politicians who get nothing done! Seriously!!!

Stamos, can you tell me what the city council has accomplished since ? I actually didn't think that it could get any worse!

They are down there holding hands and singing koom bah ya! At the beginning of session I think they do a big Texas hug!

They have ONLY passed ANTI Citizen bills! They have ONLY passed fee increases!

Did you know that the city pays a different Utility company instead of Unitil?

If Antonucci stepped down then Mayor Wong would do everything in her power to land that job so she could leave city hall. I think it is all ready to just collapse and be put in receivership!

Yes, the city has 4 Million in the bank but that can go over night! The city is in complete collapse in terms of businesses, gangs and drug dealing.

When summer hits you are going to be asking, how did Lynch know all that was going to happen! If you walked around like some of us do then you would see what I am talking about! You learn and see so much more about the conditions by walking!

Chasing the dragon! Remember you heard that here from me! This is new to Fitchburg at this level. Heroin is coming back like a vengeance! Gangs have relocated to Fitchburg. You'll see!

And trash?? It is going to smell like Georgia in the middle of a heat wave! Rotten fruit smell everywhere! Right now the rotten food and dirty diapers are a bit frozen; you just wait!

All this can be addressed with contingency plans! I say the Mayor request 1 million dollars and hires kids for summer jobs cleaning up the city.

Take another Million and directly address the drug problem within Fitchburg! Give a city grant to someone in Fitchburg say maybe Kevin from our father's house and give the program a building like where Harpers' furniture was located to operate a homeless shelter,drug rehab/residence. Then ask University students to write to corporations to request setting up shop in Fitchburg so there will be more jobs!

We cannot survive by throwing 100,00s of thousands at one or two jobs. We need to be creative. Lets kill three birds with one stone and turn the old Harpers into a multiplex as I mentioned?

Hey Lynchwell-
In looking at your lecture of Councilor DiNatale, I was reminded of the above post. Did you get any response from Mr. DiNatale when you posted this little gem?(And don't try to use the Lynch "I'm not me" defense.)
