Spectrum process was badly botched

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: Berkshire Eagle 39

Confident that it would inevitably get its methadone clinic in Pittsfield be cause of the backing of the state Department of Public Health and past in ter pretations of federal law, Worcester-based Spectrum Health Systems has only grudgingly informed city residents of the specifics of its plans.

History does not lie; this situation is typical Bianchi. He separated the City of Pittsfield over a new stadium. When on the council he voted against the renovation of the Colonial Theater and the creation of the Beacon Cinema, and when he ran for Mayor he actually lied about saying he supported the actions.
The court records are clear, you cannot dispute them. Roberto left Bianchi with a won case against Spectrum. There was NO reason for Bianchi to pay Spectrum 100K of taxpayers’ money, until city lawyer Degnan actually testified against her clients the City and City Councilor Christine Yon.

Dirty, underhanded and destructive describes Lothrop along with villainous, vile and evil, in my opinion. And I absolutely believe once your on his list, you stay on his list.

At least there's hope for the junkies who may benefit from a methadone clinic unlike the vicious dsyfunctional radid dogs of the city council for which there is no cure, no hope.

At one time was there some suggestion that the city was going to keep Attorney Dohoney on the Spectrum issue until it was resolved? I can't remember for sure if this was the plan or not. It seems vaguely familiar but I'm just not sure.

If history does not lie did Spectrum or did they not call Ruberto's behavior "hostile and threatening?" Did Ruberto actually say 'Screw you?' But more importantly did the irrational hostile threatening Ruberto threaten that a clinic would open over his dead body? Because if thats true that alone is worth the price of a methadone clinic opening in Pittsfield, and I look forward to it opening based on that threat or promise by Ruberto.

It was a given that Ruberto would leave a mess for the city to wallow in. Keep your muck boots on for there is surely more to come...

I think it's safe to say that the attempt by those ugly s***heads to tarnish others with their filthy waste during the inquisition that took place at the city hall Tuesday night appears to have only soiled themselves. And no one who was the intended victim of the inquisition should believes this is over with and everyone can all be friends now. I wouldn't be surprised if they are plotting at this very moment their next attack.

It is true that Roberto was hostile toward Spectrum and he did not want them in Pittsfield. It is also true Spectrum used that hostility as a means to sue the city for discrimination. However what the blind Bianchi followers don’t want to admit is that on 3 occasions the Federal Judge in the case denied the motions by Spectrum. The former City Lawyer was actually filing a harassment suit against Spectrum to stop them. Read it, it is in the court documents. Stop blaming Yon and Sherman for bring out THE TRUTH.

Filing a harassment suit to further harass Spectrum, that's funny. I have not read the documents so I would agree I'm going out on a limb but the limited information I have read and heard has made it clear that to me that Ruberto was discriminating against Spectrum. His arrogant threatening irrational hostile dsyfunctional crack-brained behavior was just icing on his discrimination against Spectrum. That's my opinion. I must admit that the fact that Ruberto has been found guilty of multiple ethical violations leads me to believe it more likely than not his arrogant threatening irrational hostile dsyfunctional crack-brained was an act of intentional discrimination and that's why Spectrum filed a lawsuit. That's my opinion.

And words like "Screw you" are not an olive branch, they're a sledgehammer. Those words clearly don't say welcome, let's work things out. That's my opinion. But on to another issue. Did the alleged water dept. theft that did or didn't happen during the time Ruberto was mayor cost the taxpayers more than $100,000? And if it did, how much more? Did Yon and Sherman and Krol and Lothrop and White and Mazzeo and Marchetti and Lee and Capitano and Ward and Nichols get to the bottom of this theft that did or didn't happen?

And how much money did the taxpayers get screwed out of when the baboons ass of a former mayor hired his friend snow zsar Barrett to give the taxpayers a snow job?

Thanks to Ruberto's "Screw you" irrational dysfunctional hostility towards Spectrum and the vicious rabid behavior of Yon, Clairmont, Krol and Lothrop and all the councilors whom remained silent and didn't voice an objection to the Tuesday night inquisition the junkies who will and even the ones who won't seek treatment at the methadone clinic are not the lowlifes of this story.

"the Ruberto administration illegally denied a building permit" and "sought to block a building permit" are those typos?

I agree. These guys have an obvious agenda, one which they may have signed up for when the ran for office. These are the kind of people who will keep Pittsfield from being a nice place for families to live. Businessmen maybe, but families no.

Maybe you missed it, but Lothrop the monster is in a business that annihilates families. Causing unbearable grief to children and their families. Leaving them heartbroken. And Lothrop does it with a smirking grin on his ugly evil face. I have no doubts he would lie right to your face with that evil smirking grin of his. He shouldn't be questioning anyones integrity. I personally don't believe he has any integrity of he own. DCF is on trial for failing to protect children they rip from their families and then place them in wretched hellholes with people who shouldn't be anywhere near any children. Drugging children with pyschotropic drugs. Adoption Bonuses: The Money Behind The Madness

And they have immunity for their intentional evil wickedness.
