I agree with Mr. Kinnas' decision to file his complaints outside of Pittsfield. I can't believe that everyone doesn't know that if the virtue of Kinnas' complaints/concerns had been left up to Pittsfield to decide, Kinnas would not have been vindicated. The school committee members bullying attitude towards Kinnas was insulting. And Bianchi is just a bad joke on Pittsfield.

Outstanding job on WHAT? Honestly, what are his successes? Bullshitting and unnecessary spending, wasteful spending are not successes. Or are one of those supporters who were with from the beginning? Did he promise you a job and "find" one for you in his administration? Or are you one of those who weren't with him in the beginning but he won over with the outstanding job he's done these last 2 years? He's been the disappointment I expected him to be. And that's nothing to celebrate. He won't get better in the next 2 years. And I won't be surprised if he's even worse the second time around.

Mr Kinnas obviously cares about the city which is much more than I can say about many others in city govt who are there just for the ride. He may not be the perfect speaker but he obviously spends a whole lot of time doing his homework. Someone like him who might try to cut waste and fraud will always have detractors who do not want their little gold mine interfered with. Jeff Ferrin got the same treatment when he tried to expose the fraud in the water dept. Do you see a pattern here? the last thing these people want is someone who pokes their nose into the dirty part of city govt and their weapon of choice is to try to disgrace them or anyone else who might consider trying it. You are obviously one of their hatchet men.

The attack on Jeff Ferrin by Lothrop and Yon was vulgar and offensive. It was reported that there was a closed door meeting with Lothrop, Sherman, Lee, an former police chief, for Christ sakes, White, Nichols, Marchetti, Capitanio, Mazzeo, Ward, Yon, and Krol, and who knows who else? If there was a fraud in the water department the taxpayers should have a right to be told about it. Ruberto allegedly hired his boyfriend Barrett to look into the alleged water department fraud. So was there a fraud in the water department? Was there a cover up? And that attack on Terry Kinnas by the school committee members was just as ugly. And yes I do see a pattern.

Has the current crummy mayor publicly thanked Terry Kinnas?
