I bet you are being serious! People around you beg to ride in the rolls? You are use to people kissing your a.s s? I think that rolls is too old and stiff! It might have been a nice ride decades ago! Does it have the tray in it?? So does fossa hang out with this clique of yours? He is kinda of nerdy for you guys; do you give him weggies?? Wet willies??

Fossa is a man with power; is this the officer you used to fix tickets?? How many drunk driving incidents do you think your clique got squashed?

Why would this kook attack JRs? It's clean, very well run and an asset to the city.
I have to disagree with this comment. I can honestly say that Charlie's Bar was quieter than JR's Bar is. The neighborhood had more peace and quiet with Charlie's Bar in that spot.

Charlie's Bar NEVER had music blasting outside; two nights a week; for half the year; year after year. Music that was kept blasting until 1:00am; the first couple of years that Chuckie was running his bi-weekly Horsesh#t Nights (whoops, I mean Cruise Nights). Sure, within the past year or two the music finally gets turned down at 9:00pm; but it is blasting outside twice a week til 9:00pm. Beside that; on very hot nights; they leave the doors open at JR's; so it is not unusual to hear blasting music and drunkin patrons singing Karayoke until well past 1:00am.

And, with the loud car exhausts and the endless screeching tires; (which Chuckie himsef endorses); the hapless people in that neighborhood get further aggravated by the noise and the antics at over at JR's. Needless to say; with JR's being owned by a Fitchburg cop; all the other cops let ANYTHING happen over at JR's; and Chuckie is enough of a pompous policeman to take full advantage of his badge.

So, I can honestly say that JR's is no assest to the neighborhood.

Charlie's Bar had sleazebags hanging around INSIDE and JR's has endless noise outside and illegal driving and parking going on endlessly. Again, with no recourse for the poor saps living near the dump.

If that blowhard Chuck Symos wants to make a bunch of noise twice a week for six months out oif very year; why the hell doesn't he do it is his own neighborhood?

He's obsessed with both, he actually sits out front of JR's looking at cars and I wouldn't be suprised if he gets out with a tape measure to see if they are to far from the curb. I'm wondering if he is collecting some sort of disabilty, like SS for his mental illness.

Hey tripple A! No need for a tape measure here as the entire front of the place is a fire lane. JRs has a big parking lot and can park on the side as well. They need to follow the rules like everyone else in Fitchburg is made to!

Are you a patron of JRs? Well with any luck, I will be Mayor and I will fire the entire FPD utilizing a federal law. It is time for Fitchburg to get what it deserves! Time for this clique to be held accountable for there actions. All officers will be allowed to reapply if they choose! The city will only sign a contract with any union involving the fpd if it promotes merit over seniority!

I believe that the fpd is too far gone to fix! For years we all have heard the promises to fix things to no avail! Empty promises!

I have spoken with the Mayor and the Chief in person concerning efforts that need to be made concerning the relationship between the fpd and the citizens of Fitchburg!I have seen NONE! A community must first trust their police officers! Officers need to lead by example! You would think that a place like JRs wouldn't fill the fire lane in front of JRs and wouldn't tear up the pavement in front of the fire station! Very large fines are given to the citizens of Fitchburg for this same behavior! The Chief and Mcnamarra have stated to the city council that they are going to issue more tickets and up the fines for these citations!! Enough is Enough!!

And to all you cohorts of the clique! Bring it on! It is time for Fitchburg to be lead by someone who has resilence to lead and to fight for a better Fitchburg! This clique has kept Fitchburg down for way too long! And Yes all ,business owners can count on me fighting Unitil for you! We need to encourage business to Fitchburg not to ostracize them! And yes the pressure that is on Venues needs to be investigated; why is there all this focus constantly on Venues? The city has followed them step by step through renovations and security and Venues has followed their orders!

And one more thing. Internal Affairs will not be conducted by any member of the same force! This is ridiculous! This is part of the disrespect that the Fitchburg community has dealt with for years!

I agree that the outside appearance of JRs is nice and tidy. But, that has nothing at all to do with the endless noise coming from the dump; in the form of blasting music, screeching tires; and drunken patrons bumbling their way through karaoke.

Plus, the fact that the outside of JR's is kept nice and tidy has nothing to do with the endless illegal parking and the reckless driving twice a week for six months out of every year.

Unless I am missing something; the fact that JRs is kept nice and neat doesn't excuse being a f-ing a-hole towards the rest of the neighborhood; and showing a complete disregard for our laws.....

I don't hate JRs. I hate a cop who uses his badge to get away with something that no one else (besides a cop) can get away with. And, I hate the rest of the force for looking the other way about the endless horsesh#t over at JRs; but hassling the public for the same infractions. And, the illegal parking is an outstanding example of this; along the the reckless driving.

Lynch, you have about as much chance of becoming Mayor as Sloppy Brisboyz has of becoming pregnant and popping a kid out from his touch hole.

Let me ask you something Lynch, did your mother keep you on a leash as a child? Because if not, that's about the only thing different between you and a dog that chases cars.

You are in need of some serious help Lynch. You should consider asking Sloppy if he'd be kind enough to take you to the fifth street bridge and teach you how do a swan dive.

By the way, I don't live in Fitchburg, far from it. What are you going to do about my big mouth, you gonna shut me up? you gonna kick my A$$? you gonna wash my mouth out with soap? I know more about the "burg" than you will ever know and visit quite often. I have several interest in the "burg". It's apparent from your other posts that you and some of relatives screwed up and got caught and you can't take responsability gor your failures so you are going to blame the police for all your screwups. All you talk about is MacNamara and Tasca, are you in love with them you certainly are obsessed with them.

It smells of massive corruption! If there is nothing to hide then just release the files! If government officials are allowed to keep the details of possible criminal behavior concerning a fired police Captain in the dark and away from public view;WHAT HAPPENS?

They need to release the files no matter who is involved in the possible criminal activity that went on!

This is tens of thousands of the tax payers money! At a time when there are no lights in Fitchburg,schools are being proposed to be closed,proposals for paid for trash removal and pay raises for the Chief of police and a couple others that could of paid for the lights in themselves?

We have officers such as McNamarra still on the payroll? There is no Internal affairs as the public continues to watch the fpd police themselves? Enough!

The areas unemployment is officially at 12% and at 38% unofficially? So allow business as usual? What has been accomplished here? NOTHING! The Chief gets a bigger pay check and the public gets told that they can't see the details??

Kevin, please tell us how many times you have been arrested. We just want to know that you are not biased in any way. A person who is going to run for mayor should know that this info will be made public anyway, so why not now. Come on Kev, give it up. Tell us the charges that were placed against you.
