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.

Bianchi is a liar as well now. If the court documents back the councilors up, as the eagle says they do, can believe anything that comes out of bianchi's mouth for the rest of his term?

Krol, Lothrop and.Clairmont are the Limbaugh, Hannity and Beck of Pittsfield
whose goal would seem to be to destroy the existing administrations credibility
in order to set up the next puppet GOB candidate. Gee they aren't too obvious
are they? And we are paying them to do this?

These three dysfunctional stooges would not have the guts to confront this issue individually but have brass balls when they are in a pack. Where were Krol and Lothrop when Ruberto was late with information or never had it at all? They were not so tough then were they? Little boys in a sand box...that is what I see.

Does this have to do with late information, or court documents that show the mayor lied?

After lying, should the mayor have any credibility?

I don't care about the motive, I care about whether the mayor lied or not. He didn't address the court documents in the article or claim the three were wrong. That is disturbing for me, and should be for you as well.

I personally wouldn't believe anything, not a word, not one word, from Lothrop the DCF MONSTER. From what I've personally witnessed I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the truth to be told by him about anything. And the thought of him near a sand box makes my skin crawl.

"Lying mayor" looks a lot like the creepy three headed monster..........Clairmontloth ropkrol. What a putrid pile of **** DCF Lothrop is for accusing anyone of misleading information. The truth does need to be told but I'm sure it won't be coming from Lothrop.

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.

Was there an alleged fraud in the water department? Were the taxpayers misled by Ruberto, Barrett and the city council on whether or not there was an alleged fraud in the water dept.? And if there was an alleged fraud in the water dept. how much did that cost the taxpayers? Did Ruberto put Barrett on the payroll and have him look into an alleged fraud in the water dept.? And if Barrett did look into this what happened to Barrett's alleged investigation into an alleged fraud in the water dept.?

If there was a fraud in the water dept. did it involve more than $100,000? Have we been misled about this?

Perhaps you need to take off the blinders and look at the big picture. And you should consider the motive because it will effect you much more than this issue in the long term. I assure you that these three could care less that the taxpayers are out $100,000.

Roberto has nothing to do with this subject. The fact is Bianchi lied when he told the citizens of Pittsfield he needed to give Spectrum 100K when the former city lawyer had won 3 motions against them.

Bianchi and the current city lawyer lied to the City Council when the 100k funds were put on the city budget for the pay out.

Do your home work it is all recorded in the court case. This story is not over , Bianchi will be facing an ethics board hearing and City Lawyer Degan will be facing a state judicial boarding hearing and could be disbarred.

I absolutely agree. Clairmontlothropkrol look like bullies to me. I'm certain Lothrop would swear DCF only removes "saves" children at risk of abuse or neglect. But from what I've witnessed and read that would be a lie, along with all the other disturbing vile lies they tell. Everyone should read about real risk children face once DCF/CPS comes to "save" them. Murder, Death and Abuse in Foster, Adoption Bonuses: The money behind the Madness, DSS and affiliates rewarded for breaking up familes, CPS/DCF Collision and Corruption, DCF Stealing Children, Child Protection Services and illegal Actions, The systen is evil and corrupt, Massoutrage DCF Dirty tricks, DCF Children First Advocacy, Foster Care and suicide, A Berkshire Horror Story, Foster care, The National Center on child abuse and neglect reported that six(I think this number is out of date) times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official "safety" these children are far more likely to suffer abuse including sexual molestation than in the general population. Just a handfull of the truth behind DCF/CPS. And I'm convinced money is the great motivator for DCF/CPS to "save" kids. That once "saved" children will be horribly abused and neglected and some will die once these monsters "save" them, well what are you going do, these things happen. And anyway there's no shortage of children for these monsters to "save." If they run short you can be sure DCF/CPS with find a kid to "save."

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.

If there was anything misleading concerning the secrecy, the agreement, the settlement between the city of Pittsfield and Spectrum I believe it originated with Pittsfield's least ethical contemporary mayor, Ruberto. And I won't be surprised when Ruberto reneges on his vow, his promise, that Spectrum would open over his dead body. Ruberto with his multiple guilty ethical violation won't have any problem adding his cowardly failure to follow through with his vow of "over his dead body" because that's the kind unethical worm he is.

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.

It looked like Krol could hardly control his excitement at the sight of Ruberto and Wynn. Whenever either one of them stood up to speak Krol got all giggly. It was really creepy to watch this. And Lothrop was not any better with his thank you mayor, thank chief Wynn for ******* the citizens and city of Pittsfield. I really thought he would jump out of his seat , run over to them and kiss their unethical ass right in the middle of a council meeting. If one is discarded for dirty deeds I'd say Lothrop is way over due to be discarded. Maybe they'll push Bianchi one time too many and expose themselves, leaving undeniable evidence/proof of the creeps they are for all to see.

Well if we were don't expect Krol or Lothrop to question it. They are only questioning things Bianchi is doing. Is Krol trying to make him look bad cuz he wants to mayor? I dunno...is he campaigning already? I dunno
