Mayor-elect Lisa Wong has many problems to face as she takes office. But one thing she will have going for her is that Mayor Dan Mylott, during his time in office, has kept this city a community. Full Story

As joe said "what Fitchburg do you live in?"

Ms. Holbert, Mr. Mylott had this idea that "if you believe Fitchburg is a great place to live, then it is." Not withstanding the facts that crime had literally doubled during his reign as Mayor, or the fact that the streets in the city would be repaved, when the only streets that were really repaved, were the backroads on the outskirts of the city.

But yet, he actually saw fit to redo Summer Street, only after people got really upset in that area.

But Mayor Mylott left the city broken. John Fitch Highway, the second main artery for the city which has the condition of a back road in the Town of Ashby. But Dan Mylott went out on the 4th of July, gave out ribbons to kids, and marched in the Parades, and got people to sweep the streets (something that I thought the City paid DPW workers to do..).

Mayor Mylott was nothing more than a Ronald Reagan Clone, what you saw in Fitchburg was nothing more, nothing less, than the supply side, trickle down theory of Ronald Reagan who covered it up with the smokescreen of patriotism. Mayor Mylott did the same, ran up deficits (like Reagan), and marched in Parades and hyped Civic Pride (Like Reagan), and left the city, a haven for crime, and a slum ridden mess, with homeless people and prostitutes roaming the city, and businesses moving out yearly.

Ms. Holbert, again while you may live on the outskirts of the city (which you give that impression in your letter), again we ask...what Fitchburg do you live in???

Must be a close friend of Danny boy...
OR... Maybe Dan in disguise. Either way, the city will be much better off without him.

3 PLEAD GUILTY IN S. BOSTON BEATING DEATH
The Boston Globe

May 18, 1993 | Doris Sue Wong, Globe Staff |

Three men accused in the clubbing and spearing death of Andrew S. McDonough last summer pleaded guilty in Suffolk Superior Court yesterday to manslaughter.

Judge Robert Banks ordered Jason D. Clifford, 21, of Dorchester to serve 7 to 15 years, and Kevin Lynch, 23, of South Boston to serve 6 to 15 years in the state prison in Walpole; and Brian Lynch, 20, of South Boston to serve 20 years in the state prison in Concord.

Clifford will be eligible for parole in about five years, Kevin Lynch in about four, and Brian Lynch in about two years.

So Lynch brings up pasts topics about cops when he wants to avoid answering questions. Well I am sure he understands why his past criminal record is now posted anytime he mentions cops.

He will never understand. He is a convicted felon and feels the internal desire to police the police because he was CAUGHT!

Its not the police fault he did prison time. He did it to himself and will never be able to accept that.

Holding a grudge is a sign of a dangerous ticking time bomb ready to explode.
