Does Mayor Wong know she's being accused of unjustly imprisoning a political opponent and violating ethics laws against now Councilor at Large candidate Kevin Lynch?
"To Eric Holder,
My name is Kevin Lynch. I am requesting a widespread investigation to take place concerning widespread corruption within Fitchburg. I have been harmed by this corruption and am constantly being harassed by these individuals.
I am alleging that Mayor ---- violated ethic laws as she attempted to have me unjustly imprisoned while I was running against --- for Mayor of Fitchburg.--- also has purposefully swept under the rug obvious civil rights offenses that took place against me concerning city employees.
While the FBI and the State Police through the district attorneys office deemed that there was enough credible information to determine and or to investigate alleged corruption, Mayor ---- took her broom and swept it all under the rug.
In March 2012, I agreed to not sue a long list of city employees and entities as well as a private business JRs. At the time I felt that this was a strong arm technique and in a sense corruption as well. To utilize the full weight of the government and justice department upon a citizen of limited means is beyond barbaric as I see it as straight out strong arm corruption.
I have been contemplating on running for the Mayors office again as well as city councilor at large. I have decided to run for city councilor at large. I am a citizen of the United States and I deserve to be protected against such powerful corrupt government.
If there is no such protections then there is no such thing as America. I have all the evidence and there is piles more. Some evidence has been tampered with and or destroyed on purpose in order to cover up corruption.
An Officer --------- is directly involved and it is rumored that he has many connections within the state and the FBI. The FBI had told me personally and to both my parents separately that there is definitely possible corruption involved and they were going to investigate. They told us that it was being sent to the Worcester office for investigation.
They told us that if we can prove that dispatch called the bar room then this was corruption for starts. We have proven this fact through the self admittance of my attacker a Mr.------.
I understand that there is consequences to face if I am to be lying. For starters I am willing to take a polygraph test to prove what I am stating to be 100% fact. My life was threatened by Mr ------, he then brutally attacked me and then unjustly and improperly utilized his position as a member of the FPD to enact a series of false statements and has filed false criminal charges against us.
There battle cry from the beginning has been that I am a supposed dangerous person. They have improperly utilized this statement as they coerced others to file false reports in this cover up. The PI in this case is a former FBI agent; he was with Dave as the FFD was intimidating them outside the station and he also made notice of Sgt ------ in a patrol car watching them. This agent has stated that there must be ,by law, arrest reports; these reports have been withheld from us as they made so many changes in order to align their stories.
We need assistance here in Fitchburg as this corruption is way too thick and powerful to deal with. As I believe this investigation will affect many jobs within the city of Fitchburg it must go forward. My life is at risk here as well. I cannot live as it is without being harassed by these individuals. Enough is enough. We need accountability in Fitchburg!
Respectfully, Kevin Lynch"

She can answer to it! She was part of the conversation. The letter in question I addressed to Mayor Wong not to the FPD!
This ethics investigation will question these facts.
And for another Mayor Wong is the one who encouraged me in person to take additional pictures so there would be evidence of multiple violations and to then approach the license board. The Mayor told me that there was a group working on getting rid of the bar in question.
Others have told me that she will tell you one thing to your face and then she will do the opposite.
There was a witness with me.

I love Wong. She has a plan and she's sticking to it. She is a brilliant young woman. Sure there are people out there who dislike her hard decisions but that's to bad for you because you are not the Mayor of a city that was built when textile mills could still produce goods and employ people.
People complain about the size of Main street and other streets. Well sorry but Fitchburg as well as many other cities were built at a time when people walked to work.
Can I predict the future? NO! When the city was built did they believe there would be tractor trailers delivering goods ? NO! But I do live in the now and Wong has done the best she can with what she has to work with.
To the people who dislike Wong put yourself in her and employers shoes.'Well this resume say's he has been arrested for murder, kidnapping, assault, stalking, gay prostitution, no license and possible welfare fraud.'. Yeah he sounds like a solid employee lets hire him! Not going to happen.

So to make a short story long the Mayor told you that you have no proof to back your crazy assumptions and the city has plans to redevelop that area? Am I missing something here?
#6 Jul 31, 2013
Here is one for you. GO F Yourself! You are NOTHING but a straight out coward! Stand up like a man for once!
#7 Jul 31, 2013
You love Wong because you are an idiot! You have no clue at all! Boston was also an Industrial city, they actually still have coble stones in some areas but they didn't surrender and wilt!
You complain about social services then you applaud the fact that the city of Fitchburg depends on those social services in order to function!
More double talk from you! I didn't kill anyone , I was NEVER arrested for kidnapping nor stalking! I never got arrested for Gay prostitution but you are an idiot and you will just state what you want out here because you are ANNONYMOUS.
No license and possible welfare fraud? You need to stay anonymous because I will hold you accountable for such slander!
#8 Jul 31, 2013
Yes, you are missing a lot! Let me tell you, Mayor Wong was 8 yrs old the last time I got into a fist fight. Life experiences count for a lot.
I am politically incorrect! Also called HONEST and the TRUTH!!!!
#9 Jul 31, 2013
Get over the textile mills already!!!!!! You need to grow with modern society!
#10 Jul 31, 2013
Is that the best you got? You drunken criminal corrupt cop? Good huh? You will never grow up will you?
Still playing antagonizing games? Grow up already!
#11 Aug 1, 2013
You cannot compare Boston with any other city in Massachusetts because it is well known that Boston sucks up more tax dollars than it produces and takes away from all the other cities and towns in the state. If anyone had the ability to take all the tax money from everyone in the entire state and dump it into one city, the city would do well...gawd, you are such an idiot!
#12 Aug 1, 2013
Where in my post is your name? Guilty conscience anyone???
#13 Aug 1, 2013
Why Lynch why, why, why do you make every post about you in some way? I simply made a broad statement about the quality of some of the job pool and you jump right in and think it's about you??? Get help already!
#14 Aug 1, 2013
People try and have a conversation about who could be the new police Chief and you have to make it about you and how you were arrested. Please stop Lynch. Not every topic has to be about you.
#15 Aug 1, 2013
Why Lynch do you feel the need to insult me and call me an idiot? Fine you may disagree with me but there is no need to insult me. You kinda hurt my feelings and I want an apology.
#16 Aug 1, 2013
Ok did you grow up as a hard working Asian woman in a racist society get a quality education and get elected as Mayor 4 times? NO!
While you were in jail for 8 years learning from your fellow criminal inmates how to scam the system she was in the outside world learning how to try and run the system. Do you see the difference here?
#17 Aug 1, 2013
I'm also growing tired of you thinking because you're gay and went to prison society owes you something Englynch Humpadick. I have bad news for you, WE OWE YOU NOTHING!!!

All I know is the city was heading for "receivership" and since Wong took over we now have money in the bank and have avoided layoffs.
You do know what "receivership" is?
That is when the city goes bankrupt and the State takes over all operations of the city, even the power and duties of the Mayor. The city of Springfield went into receivership.
All fees and new taxes are employed without any voting from the residents. This is in order to bring the city's budget back where it is suppose to be.
There are no layoffs but no one is hired to replace retirements and so forth. Everything is stopped.
It takes many years to come out of "receivership" and we were lucky to have Wong take over and avoid that situation.
Here is an article on a city in RI:

Avoided layoffs? Less police and less firefighters. She just almost cost the city a lot of money due to her not keeping the fire fighter employee total to a certain level of staffing.
So, our streets are riddled with crime because she wanted to make herself look good?
Yes, the Mayor did a couple good things for Fitchburg but she dropped the ball because she became transfixed on the savings account.
Many things got run down which tripled the replacement costs due to neglect. Look at gangs and drugs, she denied there was a problem now they run Fitchburg.
Maybe she should request for these gangs to give her a phone number that citizens could call to get things done.

What has happened to the tax base in Fitchburg? The city was receiving $2,700 a year from property owners and now FSU purchased them and the city receives, the big goose egg ($0).
She passed through a Student housing overlay which has caused empty shells of houses in this area. It is only a matter of time that these homeowners give up if they already haven't.
With no income these owners are not able to pay water and sewer nor taxes.
It goes on and onward. The cost of doing business in Fitchburg has gotten so high that businesses are leaving.
Now families are beginning to leave Fitchburg as it is becoming dangerous.
The pot holes have now become craters.
Look at the new budget where the citizens are now paying for trash removal at the cost of 1 Million dollars.
Property taxes went up again $60. Water and Sewer is out of control.
Do you read the paper? I know most times Fitchburg citizens have to go to the Telegram to get local news as the Sentinel is on board with the Mayor and Chief.
There have been machete attacks, gun shots, fights and robberies.
Fitchburg is becoming depressed. So, let me ask, when is the Mayor going to stop raising every tax and fee?? When is she going to stop cutting services from police, fire, lights and dpw?
So instead of DPW employees we have massive pot holes and many complaints of over grown trees being put on a list. So instead of new police hires we have gangs, drugs, illegal guns and knife attacks? Instead of new hires at the fire station we have over stressed employees and equipment?
At what costs did she save 4 Million? Is the answer 6-8 Million?
