The Everett citizens are the ones who voted for this criminal because they all cared more about a casino than the other many more important issues in the city. This could have come out the day before Election Day and he still would have won. What happened to the days when we wanted an honest, intelligent, upstanding person to run out city? We had the chance and blew it because all because of a casino which probably won't even happen . Our city has changed so much and I am ashamed to say I live here. I can't wait to move out.

This article is quite enlightening yet disturbing. It refreshes old wounds and bazaar goings on with hirings and favors. I don't like being reminded of the crooked, unconscionable events during this administration because it's too late.
Have to shake it off and enjoy this beautiful day. God knows, they all are!

Anyone know the 4 Honey Dew locations the fat one owns. Want to make sure I do not buy anything from anyone of the ones he owns. I only know of one in Revere but where is the street-city locations for all 4.

Again by the Globes exposure of this idiot and what he is involved in and how of he has treated the people of Everett he is one fat big disgrace to all of us in Everett. Never voted for him and never will. I would love to get a true poll of back 2 years ago and the present to see how many people would change their vote for this idiot. How has he helped this city, lets see
*higher taxes
*more created jobs mean more money to pay out
*crazy street sweeping and towing of cars
*rubbish program with these bins limited weekly pickup
*having his gestapo police out daily giving out tickets
*all the crooked city politicians
*Fred Forrestier the crook
*The fat one never to be found only to be seen in local news papers
*The fat one has cost me tax money since he has been in and we tax payers have got nothing in return, meaning a better Everett.
*He has done nothing nothing and nothing to help me for the money it cost me in taxes.
*I for one hope this Casino never makes it to Everett because it will get
worse with this already corrupt fat one (sorry i cant call him the M word) because he is not one.
*All of you who voted for this idiot has to be an idiot yourself for taking down Everett to where it is today. You all need a schooling in politics and know who to vote for and where this city is headed. Only the voters can do this!!!

It is far more likely our mayor is indicted by the feds than it is we get a casino.

That is what you call a "win-win."

Much better than a "Wynn win."

Is it written anywhere in the Charter that the Mayor can only speak to the local papers.

Doesn't want to talk to the Globe.

That should explain everything.

Does anyone else find it strange that the papers are not saying anything bad about Revere? I know they are the epitome of a well run City but really? All the shady people they keep talking about are from Revere. Do you think that the Revere project has no issues at all? Just wondering.
