It is time to un-elect Paul A. Camuso


1)Paul A. Camuso MUST resign in order for Medford to move forward!

2)U.S. District Judge Slaps Down a Council in New Mexico that CENSORED the citizens


Paul A. Camuso engaged in tactics on June 17 and June 10th that were blatant censorship of citizens and a city councilor.  How appropriate that six days later U.S. District Court Judge James O. Browning issued an injunction to stop a New Mexico village from doing the same thing that Camuso does on almost a weekly basis.  What Camuso does is wrong and a U.S. District Court judge has set the precedent.  Camuso is acting outside of the law when he bullies fellow councilors and residents. Note the ruling against the village in New Mexico, it is EXACTLY like TV3 Medford, which had a rule that you couldn’t criticize the board of directors or the staff of the station. Only someone who knows he or she is committing wrongdoing puts in such a censorship tactic.  And then Francis R. Pilleri, Jr., tightly aligned with Paul A. Camuso, would brag that TV3 Medford upholds First Amendment Rights.  If that were the case Pilleri wouldn’t have been forced to design in disgrace and take his group of unqualified and hideous board members with him.  Paul Camuso was aligned closely with all of them, and his closest friend at TV3 was and probably still is Gary Zappelli, the individual indicted by a Grand Jury for causing serious public alarm and arrested on a charge of a  false bomb threat.

People are known by who they associate with.  Based on information and belief, Mr. Camuso recently had a phone conversation with Zappelli. 

This does not benefit Medford.  When Zappelli was on the board of TV3 he engaged in prohibited speech, violations of the Internal Revenue Code where a board member of a non-profit promoted one city councilor, Camuso, while denigrating other city councilors.  It was prohibited speech that benefited Camuso and harmed his fellow councilors.

So when Camuso tells you he has “the votes” – he fails to be honest with you that he got the votes in a nefarious and underhanded way. He cheated. Paul Camuso cheated, and the individual who was Camuso’s enabler and accomplice in violating the Internal Revenue Code, in engaging in prohibited activities, was arrested for a false bomb threat.

Paul A. Camuso got votes via the conspiracy to commit what could be a fraudulent act: get airtime on TV3 while the host of the show praising Camuso was besmirching other candidates for elected office, a CLEAR VIOLATION OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE.   Zappelli, a failed council candidate himself, was seething with envy at two female councilors and two male councilors.  The viciousness with which Zappelli concocted his attacks, initiating attacks that were very personal, were done so with the blessing of Paul A. Camuso, who thwarted efforts by the City Solicitor and Budget Director Stephanie Burke (who was then a councilor) to bring information to the citizens of Medford.  Camuso thwarted the First Amendment right of the City Solicitor and the woman who is now Budget Director.  And he did so to aid and abet Zappelli and Medford Community Cablevision, Inc., the entity that was embattled for over a decade and was forced to dissolve in disgrace. They couldn’t even do that properly and citizens are demanding to know where our monies are and how they were spent.  Camuso hasn’t lifted a finger to help out the residents, because his pals at the awful TV3 are counting on him to not rat them out. 

In any lawsuit we are quite confident that Camuso’s testimony under oath would incriminate Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. “executives” and would force Camuso’s resignation.   Don’t think that day isn’t coming. Camuso has hurt a lot of people and a lawsuit would be the logical step if Camuso doesn’t want to do the honorable thing and resign.

Camuso’s conduct outside of City Hall, two incidents reported to the police of the employee of the sheriff’s office, Camuso, behaving in a manner that is a threat to public safety.  ELECTED OFFICIALS NEED TO BE HELD TO HIGHER STANDARDS.  The bar Camuso has for residents is too high, and the bar he sets for himself is very low.  Camuso actually used a member of his own family in a very ugly way to try to bully a resident.  Camuso brought a family member up at the council when no speaker at the podium ever, EVER did.  But Camuso, abusing his authority and microphone, just made it up as he went along.  Now, with rumors gaining steam in the same fashion that forced Camuso’s uncle, Robert A. Maiocco, out of the presidency and off of the council, the optimal solution for Camuso is to step down.

The rumors about Maiocco had been circulating for months in regards to his position at Wells Fargo and about customers allegedly unhappy with Maiocco and leaving him in his role as “financial adviser.”   The rumors about Camuso are from numerous sources, not just one, and from very credible sources, one anonymous person saying “How did he get a job at the sheriff’s office…” (the rest of the sentence deleted until we collect more statements and other evidence to make the case.)  Another individual was much more clear about it, spelling out in no uncertain terms a situation that would make impeachment of Camuso a very real possibility – IF, and we stress IF – the accusations are true.  Given Camuso’s conduct at City Hall and behind City Hall in the parking lot, resignation is the only honorable way out, in our editorial opinion.  Given Mr. Camuso’s  absence record and his having discussions outside of the council when the council is in session, you have very clear evidence of a city councilor more interested in his paycheck than in the lives of the taxpayers expending his very expensive position at City Hall.

The fact that Camuso personally censored me when bringing up the idea of the council rescinding its ridiculous raise a good case in point.  Camuso doesn’t deserve a raise, he deserves to be dragged into a court of law to explain his behavior to a judge and jury.  It’s that bad.  Starting with the censorship and zeroing in on his wrongful bullying conduct at the council and outside of the Medford City Council.

Camuso’s Replacement would IMPROVE MEDFORD

If Paul A. Camuso resigns Republican Mark Crowley would become the new City Councilor, an individual with no ties that we know of to Mayor Michael J. McGlynn.   City Councilor Mark Crowley would provide some checks and balances that are missing at the City Council. 

If Mr. Camuso truly believes that “challenging times need accountable leadership” then Camuso, to improve Medford, will step down and allow Mark Crowley to be the city councilor that he deserves to be.  Mr. Camuso is not accountable and he is hardly a leader. He is a sick joke played on the residents of Medford and the taxpayers aren’t getting what they thought they had purchased.  Camuso is OBLIGATED to step down because he has failed to perform.  Every nickel he takes from here on out he steals because he has censored residents at the People’s Forum. Camuso’s censorship is poof that Camuso is a fraud, and a fraud Council President is not what the citizens want with the expensive pricetag that comes with this particular council.

Medford residents have been harassed and bullied by an unqualified City Councilor who believes because he thinks he “has the votes” he can break the rules that were put into place to safeguard the citizens.  What kind of jerk employs that kind of twisted logic?  One who benefits himself while hurting the residents of Medford.


Camuso is damn right when he says “Challenging Times Need Accountable Leadership” – and in these difficult times Camuso fails to provide leadership. Accountability is not even in his vocabulary.

Mark Crowley’s website notes that he came in 8th with more than 3,000 votes

 I came in eighth with more than 3,000 votes.

Thank you so much for believing in me, and showing that hard work and grassroots efforts can make a difference


Crowley is humble, is a professional, and will serve Medford.  Camuso has the most notorious record of absence at the Council, and his censorship tactics are not only immoral, they are just plain wrong.


On Monday, June 23, 2014, U.S. District Judge James O. Browning issued an injunction on Monday finding that the village of Ruidoso’s rule or policy barring speakers from being critical is “an unconstitutional burden on free speech,” the Albuquerque Journal reports (
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A federal judge came down hard on a New Mexico village after officials tried to ban residents from saying anything negative at Council meetings.

Under the village rules, a speaker could praise personnel, staff or the village Council, or could make a neutral comment, but couldn’t voice criticism.

Week-end Wrap Up June 28, 2014

Can you believe it’s the end of June, 2014 already.  Tuesday will be July 1 and that’s when Michael J. McGlynn says he’s going to “read” the Cable TV Panel report. 

Mayor McGlynn also suffered a spectacular defeat at the hands of the Medford City Council on June 24, 2014, which means he is not a happy camper

Medford City Council cuts $600,000 from fiscal 2015 budget

Here’s the timeline on TV3  May 21, 2013 to July 1, 2014:

May 21, 2013  – Editor of this publication forces City Council to go back on the TV3 issue; TV3 station manager lies about amount of board members, claims to have “ten.”

May 28, 2013: Francis R. PIlleri, Jr., disgraced president of Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. lies to the council when asked about board members, which he knows like the back of his hand, and says “I wanna say six.”

In the coming weeks TV3 self-appointed clerk Harvey Alberg fakes that his hearing aid is off when a councilor asked him how many board members there are; one of the councilors saying to me after a meeting “Why even bother, he (station manager) is lying through his teeth.”   In August the police had to remove Francis R. Pilleri Jr. for disorderly conduct.

On or about September 4, 2013 the webmaster and former board member of TV3 was arrested for a false bomb threat.  It is understood that the office of the District Attorney wants to move the case forward as of June 28, 2014.

September 30, 2013, the board of directors of MCC TV3, not even honest about how many of them there are, votes to shut down what Councilor Adam Knight has called a “fiasco.”

If we cooperate all this goes away

On or about October 1, 2014 Pilleri writes to the City Solicitor to say that the station will dissolve “quickly.”  Pilleri lied again.   Information from the office of the Attorney General noted that as of April 30, 2014, the end of MCC’s fiscal year, the station had not filed its financial disclosures and had not dissolved.

The public has a right to this information, but Frank Pilleri has been dishonest with the public just about the entire time that he operated Medford Community Cablevision, Inc.

June 6, 2014 the Mayor very quietly publishes the cable TV committee report on the city website and very quietly says he will “review all of the recommendations” after the City’s budget process for FY15, which was completed this past week, June 24, 2014.  So the Mayor keeps inching towards the April, 2015 date when the Comcast contract is to expire and there is no public access tv for citizens to discuss the Charter Review.  What a coincidence.  it is NOT a coincidence, this Mayor is cheating the citizens in a warped attempt to maintain power and control over the city.

Here are his exact comments of Mayor McGlynn:

. “After the completion of the City’s budget process for FY15, I will review all of the recommendations, including those involving the financial, operational, educational and code of conduct aspects listed in the report.”

Medford Community Access Report Released

Mayor Michael J. McGlynn today released the report of Medford’s Community Access Channel. The report outlines the recommendation for the future operation of public access in Medford.

“I am extremely grateful to the committee, Allison Goldsberry, Fred Laskey and Father George “Chip” Hines, for all of their efforts and hard work over the past three and a half months. This report is concise and direct,” said Mayor McGlynn. “After the completion of the City’s budget process for FY15, I will review all of the recommendations, including those involving the financial, operational, educational and code of conduct aspects listed in the report.”

Next Medford City Council Meeting Tuesday July 15

“Summer vacation…is taking you away…”   The Happenings made “See You In September” famous in the 1960s but with the inmate running the asylum it’s more like Napolean XIV’s “They’re Coming To Take Me Away” at the Medford City Council!  City Council President Flipped His Lid now has three weeks off, maybe he can meet Nell Escobar Coakley for a chocolate fudge sundae at Colleen’s instead of earning that fat paycheck he used a “rule of necessity” to stuff his face with taxpayer dollars with.  Chomp chomp chomp.




With a City Council president behaving more like Napolean the XIVth than an elected official and the People’s Forum feeling more like a room at Bridgewater State Hospital than the Alden Chambers we thought we were buying, it is no wonder the citizens are looking to review and possibly amend the City Charter when some psycho has the gavel in his hand.

When it seemed like Mr. Paul A. Camuso weighed in at 450 pounds or so back in October of 2006 this writer found it odd that, rather than ask me pertinent questions about the public access station while I was at the podium, Camuso came running after me (???) in the darkened City Hall downstairs – while he was supposed to be with his fellow councilors working in the auditorium, and he was siding with the now eradicated TV3 and the imbeciles like Harvey Alberg that destroyed the station.  Alberg and Camuso were yelling at me to the point where I had to file a report on Camuso with the Medford Police Department.  Fast forward to seven or eight years later and the “mental moron” (which is what Camuso called himself AT the Council, on camera) drives up a one-way the wrong way in the dark of night – again as I’m going to my car – blasting his horn, pointing his finger in a threatening manner, attempting to scare me again as I’m going to my car.  That’s your newly minted “City Council President” and since this writer exposed Camuso’s uncle-by-marriage and that little Four Hundred and Two Thousand Dollar Payout at Wells Fargo, well, one has to ponder the insanity of it all and do a little investigative reporting to find out if the idiocy isn’t the symptom of something more dangerous afoot. Is the insanity due to laziness, greed or is there some serious mental illness being exacted on the Medford residents without their being fully apprised of an individual in such an important position of power; and caught on camera abusing that power.

If we vet the President of the United States shouldn’t the President of the City Council be required to give his own full background check to the residents who are footing the bill and who are at his mercy week after week after week? 

   Is there anything in Mr. Camuso’s background, say, when he was in high school, that we should know about?  Just asking because his bizarre conduct and irrational behavior, his fixation on me after Council meetings, real Jekyll and Hyde-ish, says to the logical mind that something isn’t quite right with Bob Maiocco’s nephew-by-marriage.

    It is all the more necessary when the fact is that the colleagues of Robert A. Maiocco on the City Council appeared dumbfounded to find out about his financial situations with clients at Wells Fargo.  This is the kind of information that needs to be front and center. We can’t have megalomaniacs sadly lacking in qualifications bullying the citizens and censoring residents so that those cowards in positions of power don’t have to fess up and be honest about their background and if they aren’t fit for the job they want, using sleight of hand to achieve their goals, to the detriment of our society.
