This guy was never seen going into the ladies room to change the batteries? Hey Mr. Keady what you doing standing up there on the toilet in the ladies room? 20 thumb drives in his pocket? wow what a whack job.

The time has come to overhaul the town hall. What other perverts or mentally ill people are working for the town of Shirley? I live here and would love to see almost everyone in the town hall get a pink slip. It is filled with families and friends of the families. Kind of sounds like there is more than just co-workers between him and his assistant.

The Town has led me to believe what else seems to be happening behind closed doors.
The Town Budget should be evaluated, since Mr. Keady has a direct link to Town finances.
Has Mr. Keady used his position to allow other individuals to take advantage within the Town?
During these troubled times, are we as residents, just spectators or do we see injustice and try to uphold long-term values.

One the guy is definitely sick & unstable. WoW

I wonder if anyone did this in City Hall in Lowell.

The business of towns being controlled by one family and a group of close knit friends is so common I'm so sick of it.

Let's see a family tree now of that town. Can't say I'm surprised but look at this one. did anyone suspect anything off with this guy?

Really it is frightening to think about now if i were anyone who had to deal with him so close. What did he have on me and what was going through his head.

This was a man in a position of power over the people. This is just another reminder don't ever place anyone you think that has a position of power is a God or better than you.

They are just great manipulators and just plain ole sick.

WoW this will be an interesting case to follow. I wonder what they will uncover with his recordings and any other corruption but then again it may be dismissable in court because it is illegal to record someone with out their permission.

So that means anything he did catch which could be town corruption at it's best and political favoritism will be swept under the rug.

Very interesting case to follow.

Look, the guy obviously has a mental disorder (anxiety, paranoia, etc.) and has probably had it for a long time. Nixon, anyone?

I agree that the town finances are a mess. But you could say that about almost anyone town in the state. Or the country.

The most lurid element here is the sex one. But it's a symptom of his larger ill. No is saying he was a predator...yet. At the same time, his transgressions are almost as bad because of the abuse of trust. And the willful ignorance of town officials who apparently let this go on for so long under their noses.

I have known the Keady family since the mid sixties. All stand up guys and I would trust them. I don't know what Kyle did and how much of this is true and how much is just wild allegations. I will reserve judgement until he has hid say in court. Too bad others are in such a rush to judge based on a news story.

This guy should have been denied bail or put in a mental facility for examination. Letting him out in the public is clearly a hazzard. Suicide is also a possibility.

I hope the assistant was at least good looking enough to get into all this trouble...what a stupid move. Sometimes, a man's "other head" takes over and it never turns out right.

First, I definitely feel bad for the employees who now have to wonder... horrible. I am not condoning his actions, however, it is NOT illegal for adults to posses porn. AND, how am I the only one that thinks it's absolutely inappropriate for town employees to talk to the press about this???

The guy definitely sounds like a nut and filming in the lady's room is definitely illegal.

But how is it illegal for him to do surveillance of his employees at town hall in public spots? Businesses do this all the time to avoid theft etc.

What a horrible, horrible thing to say about a victim whose home was broken into. Please exclude the gossip from your supposed political commentary and stop blaming everyone else for one man's issues.

Why must they pulicize this kind of behavior, now all the town managers in Merrimack Valley will be taping the women's restroom.

There is no doubt Mr.Keady is unstable, considering the charges he is facing. Taping a conversation without a person's knowledge and video taping individuals' private parts without permission or knowledge is illegal. It would be in his best interest to plead innocent by reason of insanity. I have personally observed Mr. Keady's behavior and demeanor, on many occassions, both on the job and off the job. He is extremely reserved, rarely smiles and is always watching his surroundings with such intensity. He has done a lot of good for the town of Shirley, but that cannot excuse the charges he is facing due to his unstable and paranoic behavior.

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Dont get me wrong what he did was way out of line! He did admit to wiring the town hall but with all the media news and hear say this story has gotten blown way out of whack. Does the media realize that not only are they damaging the accused but the people surrounding him, his family, friends and his son! I stronly feel that the DA, accussed and the witnesses deal with the situation than justice will be served. Media should stay away!
