3 say Pittsfield mayor misled council

Aug 24, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Berkshire Eagle

Saying they want to "correct the record," three city councilors contend Mayor Daniel L. Bianchi's administration misled the council about the purpose of a $100,000 budget expense that eventually was used as part of a lawsuit settlement to the op erator of a proposed meth adone clinic.

Silly sissy, is that the piss ant troll or the monster? I hope it's both along with Clairmont the clown and Yon the witch and other undesirables.

Look at reality ! Who can beat Bianchi ? Who can run strong against him ? Ruberto ? Krol ? Yon ? Lothrop ?
Marcetti has said he's running for city council. Who can even come close ? Walto ? Fillio ?

It is a cherry and much desired position as it controls a huge piggy bank. This piggy bank holds lots of coins, many of which can get lost in the shuffle if you know what I mean. That is why you will never see an independent audit of the city finances.
Lothrop is unelectable because he is despised by so many. That is why he was pulled in the last election after being a front runner. He can bullshit with the best of them but leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Krol is also a spin doctor in the Kerwood fashion. But is he too plastic to be taken serious? It is well know that he is has pure GOB blood in his veins and that will work against him. Clairmont can be just plain scary as he demonstrated in the Kegan take down. Ruberto will probably be the one, backed with a truck load of cash and campaign bullshit.

He's in the diabolical evil destructive devastating deceitful business of destroying families and children, and I don't for one second that he loves it.

I don't doubt for one second that he loves it. I also wouldn't be surprised if when he's not picking on children he's pulling the wings off dragonflies or drowning kittens in a burlap sack. I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised.

And how much money went missing in the alleged water department fraud under Ruberto's reign of terror and all things unethical?

I can't help you on that one but it is a solid guess that current city watch dogs Krol, Clairmont and Lothrop will not be investing any of their investigative resources trying to uncover anything on this one. One of the criteria for them to move on an issue is whether or not it advance the gob agenda.

They probably know exactly what happened but won't be sharing it with the public.

And in other good news Shaker Village who was the happy recipient of a generous $250,000 economic grant from the city of Pittsfield will not have to fulfill it's original agreement for the generous $250,000 gift from Pittsfield. Isn't that great news? If I'm not mistaken I believe Spice owners of a teen beer blast eatery didn't fulfill their original agreement in exchange for the most generous tax subsidized in the history of the city either. Isn't that great news? But Lothrop, Yon, Sherman, Krol, and Clairmont did carry out a firery inquistion of the city solitor and the current crummy mayor over giving a $100,000 gift to a methadone clinic because the former crummy mayor attempted to illegally deny a permit and block a methadone clinic from opening over his dead body in Pittsfield. Or something like that.

I believe Shaker Village comes under the umbrella of GOB agenda material. It was known on both sides when the "agreement" went down that it would be at least partially rescinded once the taxpayers had settled down. One hand washing the other and keep in mind I never used the word kickback. I simply said people were getting hands rinsed off. Too many checks and balances in place for any untoward goings on in this area.

And Ruberto, true to his character of least ethical contemporary mayor, confirmed himself once again to be the scoundrel he is when he didn't follow through with his promise that a methadone clinic would open over his dead body.

Is it on point to ask why Ruberto made this whole thing secret in the first place? Why would Bianchi give away 100 grand? for no reason? What are you trying to say?
And where were Krol and Lothrop when Ruberto was dealing under the table? They kept their mouths shut because they were on his team. Now that Marchetti lost the election they are chewing sour grapes and playing dirty pool. Their concerns for ethical behavior seems very selective don't you think? Are they really that ignorant that they are being used as pawns? They will be discarded once they have done their dirty deeds.
Bianchi has proven himself to be a disappointment along Krol, Lothrop, Clairmont, Yon, Cotton, Capitanio and all the other proven disappointments.

Stay on point. The question is did the mayor and city solicitor mislead the publi regarding the $100,000 payout to Spectrm?
The legal court documents tell all. Nov 15, 2011 judge rules city of Pittsfield did nothing illegal regarding the building permit and Spectrum's discrimination suit against the city would not likely hold up in court. June 26, 2012 court document reveals city solicitor stating to federal court judge, "the council does not know the $100,000 was to be used for this law suit, theyre probably not too happy about it now, oh well."
Mayor Bianchi campaigned on open and transparent government. Where did that promise go? I'd like to thank Clairmont, Krol and Lothrop for bringing the truth to the light. That's transparency in government!
This is not about personalities this is about facts. Read the legal court documents. You can get them through PACER online, Spectrum vs City of Pittsfield.
Lothrop is a DCF monster. DCF, A government agency that has to be one of the most corrupt and vile of government agencies.

Jimmy Ruberto had multiple "ethics" violations when he was Mayor of Pittsfield for 8 years. He had Andrea Nuciforo swear him into his third-term in early-2008. He nominated Carmen Massimiano to chair the licensing board. His campaign advisor was Angelo Stracuzzi. Jimmy Ruberto is a Good Old Boy network politician who took orders from the Pittsfield political machine.
Dan Bianchi has integrity and the Good Old Boys don't like him.
They're all goons.
