Stephanie Muccini Burke and McGlynn’s Lies

Mayor McGlynn lies to the citizens of Medford.  The sleight of hand and deceptions have caught up to the ghastly charlatan who has ruled Medford, Massachusetts like a dictator over the better part of three decades.

THIS LETTER IS GOING OUT TO POLITICIANS:

The Mayor is cheating you out of access television for your campaign.

This is a deliberate and malicious ploy by McGlynn to keep “outsiders” from having a level playing field.

By keeping new voices and new faces off of the school committee, McGlynn retains control for his “shadow government.”
Mike R said on Saturday “We will have access tv” (for the election.) That is exactly what Fred Laskey said to me (he’s in the e mail above,) yet Mr. Laskey and his panel lacked experience, the experience that I have.
Mr. Laskey is not fighting for access TV, but I am.
The Mayor received my proposal, on time, on March 26, and the Mayor delayed access TV to keep YOU and your colleagues off of TV.
The Mayor is putting huge resources into attacking me, including a felonious assault on my person by Ed Finn, the City Clerk on June 18th. April 27, 2010 I was also assaulted at City Hall – possibly the first time in Medford’s history that a resident was assaulted at the council.
Why?

Because McGlynn is squelching free speech and I represent YOUR free speech.
United we stand. I have the experience and knowledge, and it terrifies the Mayor. In fact, McGlynn, Solicitor Rumley and Ed Finn are doing everything they can to “poison the well” and try to convince people not to work with me.
Why?  Because they know I can deliver.
If my skills and experience didn’t matter they would ignore me.  But they don’t ignore me – they go on the attack.
One person in Medford can deliver access TV.
Everyone else is giving lip service.

One man is on the front lines fighting for you.
Work with me so that we have access TV in Medford in the next two weeks

Mike, you never told me how you would deliver access TV.  I have a plan, do you?

BACK TO STEPHANIE”

Mrs. Burke, When McGlynn tells you this, it is actually smoke and mirrors – watch this video – CITY HALL –  to see the true face of Michael J McGlynn…it is chilling

MEDFORD

TV3’s president says the station spent all of its savings — more than $130,000 — on operating costs before the now-defunct access station’s Board of Directors voted to dissolve the station last October.

But officials want proof, since Medford Community Cablevision, Inc. (TV3’s legal name) is required to transfer all remaining assets to the city before it dissolves.

TV3’s Board of Directors now has until Thursday, July 24 to produce financial records from the station’s final year or it could face legal action from the city.

Last October, the board voted to dissolve the station following seven months of no broadcasting, allegations of racism and other problems.

http://medford.wickedlocal.com/article/20140723/NEWS/140729230

According to the review, MCC’s $153,532 in remaining assets as of April 30 were transferred. Jacobson said the figure represents the value of the station’s equipment that was turned over to the city, and the figure does not include any cash.

According to the 990-EZ tax form Pilleri filed with the Internal Revenue Service, MCC had $133,342 in cash, savings and investments on May 1, 2013.

According to Jacobson’s review conducted for MCC, the organization had only $95,555 in expenses for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2014, indicating a positive balance.

Jacobson said he could not discuss the source or MCC’s use of the $133,342 because of privacy reasons.

Pilleri, however, said MCC’s accounts are empty.

 

Paul A Camuso went too far on the last day of June, 2015

June 30, 2015, Medford City Council

Paul A. Camuso of the Middlesex Sheriff Department embarrassed himself again at one of the most expensive city councils in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This was yet another vital topic on June 30, 2015, water and sewer, and Mr. Know-it-all Camuso inserted foot in mouth again, to the detriment of the community.   Each week it is either “I misspoke” or “I apologize” but the laughingstock of the council, Paul Camuso, ill-prepared and arrogant, has become a malignant tumor on the city of Medford’s poor health.

It is time that the City Council policed itself and excised the tumor and its effects –  invasiveness, instability and the awful end result: the Camuso disease that spreads quickly and ruthlessly.   The situation is most urgent, beyond critical, Camuso eating away at Medford’s resources like a plague of lethal termites, undermining the very structure of Medford, resulting in a bloated 155 million dollar budget, a pay-to-park horror show, no access TV, and Camuso’s unbridled evil – blaming the one councilor who has fought the hardest for access TV as a deflection for Camuso’s own destructive behavior.  Years ago Camuso was caught participating with an ugly crew who cheated the city out of the free speech platform and the monies cable TV subscribers pay into it.  Camuso engaged with the reprobates while allowing the bashing of his council colleagues.  It was despicable behavior and despite Camuso’s declaration that he’s in Alcoholic’s Anonymous, it is queer that Camuso won’t adhere to Step 8:

“Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all”

You read that correctly, the pathological liar, selfish Camuso, not only cheats other members of AA, Camuso snubs Step 8, acts in a vengeful and vindictive way, is just a vicious and pathetic person bound for hell on a runaway train.

Camuso, rather than embrace STEP 8 of Alcoholic’s Anonymous, actually tried to paint the one guy fighting the good fight FOR TV3 by claiming, falsely, that the access proponent “shut down” public access.

FACT CHECK: The funds from TV3 were not accounted for, AIDED AND ABETTED BY CAMUSO.  For the perpetrator to turn around and try to blame the councilor who attended the ascertainment hearing and try to turn it around is hardly adhering to STEP 8.  Which means that drunk Camuso used Alcoholics Anonymous as a kind of “badge of honor.”  When people in AA are supposed to remain ANONYMOUS.  Camuso can’t even be honest with an organization attempting to help a mean old drunk.  At 37 years old Camuso behaves like a seasoned con straight out of prison.   Camuso behaves like an immature thug, but appears to be some recently released over 50 con man, locked away behind bars for many years, lashing out upon tasting freedom.  Angry, hot-headed, and dangerous.

Camuso,  like a typical drunk – never owning up to his many deficiencies, deflecting  his own extreme behavior on his victim(s) like an abusive old drunk – is seen at council meetings never taking stock, never holding himself accountable.

Camuso branded himself as a drunk, and branded himself as a lame-duck. His lack of self-respect, his yearning for adulation he doesn’t deserve, his greedy power and money grabs, all documented on DVDs from his own actions at the council; caught red handed by the cameras on the government channel.  Camuso is obligated to hold himself to a higher standard, but he doesn’t.   The low standards Camuso has for himself are light years away from the high standards Camuso demands from everyone else.  He’s a sick individual.

________________________________________

Which brings us to Camuso’s employer, Sheriff Peter Koutoujian.  Attorney Koutoujian promised he would remove the remnants of the failed and deceptive regime of deceased sheriff James V. DiPaola.  Camuso is living proof that the sheriff was not honest with the voters.   So why would a person with a somewhat decent reputation, Koutoujian, bow down to the will of Mayor McGlynn when McGlynn stabbed Koutoujian in the back when Koutoujian ran for Ed Markey’s seat in Congress.  It is truly puzzling as to why Koutoujian would say he won’t accept campaign contributions, yet had Camuso contributing time and holding a sign WITH Koutoujian http://insidemedford.com/2012/11/06/election-day-in-medford/

_______________________________________________________

The individual who voted for his own pay raise uses the bully pulpit of the city council like some kind of political assassin, issuing false statements, abusing colleagues, the proverbial wolf in a hen house.

Paul A. Camuso is a very bad man in a position of power because of his alliance with the highly unpopular Mayor of the past twenty-seven and a half years, Michael J. McGlynn.   McGlynn’s father Jack set the table for his son, and with Plan A government the citizens are at a huge disadvantage.  McGlynn has a “Media Blackout” and his lieutenants all march with the deceitful McGlynn, as evidenced by McGlynn’s closeness to such a disreputable and repugnant character as Camuso. 

Bullying his way into the seat of Council President, Camuso was totally out of his depth, unaware of the rules surrounding the Open Meeting Law until this editor had it explained to him in Council Room 207 at City Hall.  In the corporate world, in the private sector, Camuso would not have the latitude to abuse co-workers, cheat the employer by walking out on company time (a weekly newspaper noted that Camuso had the worst attendance of all councilors one year,) and constant haranguing of senior citizens and colleagues on the council.

___________________________________________________________

The city council has an obligation to police itself.  Medford, Massachusetts is worse off with the admitted alcoholic sitting on the council and being abusive.  Senior citizens are often victimized by Camuso’s frequent deceptive speeches, from a respected doctor to this editor, the senior member of the city council, anyone who the bully, Camuso, perceives as an enemy, including the late Pat Fiorello, a senior citizen who only wanted to present his Golden Memories show on public access TV.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO A COMPELLING CONVERSATION FOR CAMUSO’S REMOVAL

THE CITY COUNCIL OF MEDFORD MUST POLICE ITSELF
Camuso must be impeached.

Dello Russo, Jr., Ed Finn, Adam Knight lack of public service

Citizens of Medford pay for public service. They don’t get it.

In tough economic times Paul Camuso, Rick Caraviello, Fred Dello Russo, Jr. and Adam Knight voted for their own pay raise.  Hold that thought about self service as you continue reading.

Citizens of Medford pay a fee on their cable subscriber bills that totals approximately 1 million a year.  That’s a lot of money, to quote Richard Gere in the film Primal Fear, and those monies are not properly accounted for at Medford City Hall, despite the City Solicitor, Mark E. Rumley making a phony demand that Rumley has yet to make good on.  It’s your money.

When a rookie city councilor voted for his own pay raise in January of 2014, and had tens of thousands of dollars behind him, it was money over experience, Adam Knight showing each week on camera how in over his head he was accepting the job of Medford City Councilor, a job Mark Crowley would have done much, more better, with more of an eye toward the community.

Citizens of Medford pay for public service that is public access TV.  A million or so dollars a year.  They don’t receive it.  Where is the money?

Where is the education?  Where is the free speech platform?

The Ugly Politics of the Camus0/Muccini-Burke Ticket

TROUBLED MUCCINI-BURKE CAMPAIGN EMBRACES REPROBATE PAUL CAMUSO’S ENDORSEMENT
__________________________________________
CAMUSO VIOLATES STEP 12 WHEN HE ATTACKS A FELLOW COUNCLOR!
____________________________________________________
CAMUSO VIOLATED STEP 8 of the 12 STEP PROGRAM Camuso falsely brags that he adheres to by desecrating the anonymity of Alcoholics Anonymous at a City Council meetng. Some “family values” – NOT! A councilor admitting to being a drunk took the focus off of the residents of Medford – but it is all about Camuso and Burke, and their self-absorbed beauty pageants.
______________________________________________________
Far worse – Muccini-Burke allegedly enables her pit bull, Camuso, to use the council in an inappropriate manner to politicize issues and bash Muccini-Burke’s opponent relentlessly.   LAST NIGHT CAMUSO USED OUR COUNCIL TO GO AFTER MUCCINI-BURKE’S OPPONENT.  BEYOND VULGAR, WAS IT EVEN LEGAL?
_________________________________________________________
Mr. Camuso’s uncivil and destructive behavior gets an exclamation point when you see the outright lies on Burke’s own website:
_____________________________________________________
 
“I am humbled and honored to be endorsed by Councilor Camuso,” Burke said. “His unwavering commitment to the vitality of the city of Medford is evident. Paul’s character and work ethic is unmatched. His approach to all he endeavors is a credit to his parents and his strong family values. That is a thread that we share and I am proud to call him my friend.”
_________________________________________________________
Muccini-Burke’s floundering campaign has made numerous missteps, but none as egregious as praising a lame-duck city councilor, Camuso, caught on camera at the council bullying residents and colleagues.
The documentation is long and lengthy.
________________________________________________
Paul Camuso failed to do “the people’s business” when he used the city council to bash a candidate that Camuso has been fixated on for about a decade now.   The unseemly act on behalf of Stephanie Muccini Burke was a cheap shot, the kind of cheap shot that a desperate bully throws when a Paul Camuso type knows that he can’t win fair and square.
____________________________________________________
Camuso used these slimy tactics against Councilor Burke when his twice-arrested pal, Gary Zappelli, would put Camuso on the TV3 channel and give Camuso all the time that he needed, while Zappelli engaged in mean-spirited assaults on Muccini-Burke’s character, relentlessly.
_______________________________________________
Do you realize it was this writer that cleaned up the mess Camuso’s friend Zappelli made of Stephanie Muccini-Burke’s name and likeness on Word Press.  Burke didn’t even have the humility to thank me for my hard work on her behalf.
What Muccini-Burke does have is the temerity and audacity to act like she’s already the Mayor, her campaign sign, her rhetoric, and her lies about Paul A. Camuso having “family values.”
_______________________________________________________
Tell that to the families grieving at the city council over losing loved ones to heroin addiction, only to have Camuso interject and make the story about him, breaking his “anonymity” and the alleged sacredness of Alcoholics Anonymous
_____________________________________________
How the worm turns when the worm is Paul A. Camuso. Allegations that Camuso raised his hand to his own mother or allegedly hit his own mother or allegedly raised a meat cleaver or butcher knife to his own mother, allegations of violence against women, not only were not addressed by Muccini-Burke (whose husband allegedly is a clerk of court,) Muccini – knowing what the allegations are against Camuso, prints this nonsense on her website:
__________________________________________

Stephanie Burke was harassed by Camuso’s close friend Gary Zappelli for a long time.  Zappelli, allegedly sending a special needs person to Stop and Shop to sexually harass women, is a good, good friend of Camuso’s and Mayor McGlynn’s.  This is ugly politics, ugly, ugly politics

______________________________________

Camuso does not care about “family values” or about what is ethical and right.  Camuso doesn’t care about a level playing field. This is a war, and Camuso fights dirty, dirty, dirty.  Stephanie Muccini-Burke wants Camuso to be his hatchet man.  According to legend, Camuso is most proficient at that, and not much else.

Consider Stephanie Muccini-Burke’s poor choices and her praising of reprobate Camuso before you give her your vote and cast Medford back into the McGlynn dark ages.

Mario Martin: “Real Estate is the common denominator in Medford”

Mario Martin: Real Estate is the common denominator in Medford”

June 15th, 2015, Medford, MA – City Council Candidate Mario Martin believes economic turn is rapidly approaching South Medford. The Green line extension into Ball Square is nearly complete expanding the reach of public infrastructure into the local community. But when MBTA occupies 97% of its project on Medford and faces Somerville storefronts, Martin seems to think South Medford might be slightly underrepresented.

Given the projects overwhelming benefits, the GLX not surprisingly has strong support from the majority of South Medford residents and the city administration, “But it’s important for the next administration to oversee the GLX through its completion”. Martin isn’t just talking about reducing congested Harvard street traffic, increased road maintenance, deadly auto emissions, and excessive parking demand; he’s talking about the economic growth potential.

Since the GLX will be within a 10-minute walking radius for 10,000+ locals, many residents understand, with benefits comes change. Martin’s vision is to turn the area into a culturally conscious, frequent shopping & recreational marketplace.

There’s no doubt the development is going to produce a wealth of benefits to South Medford residents, but Martin is concerned about the affordable housing and income inequality conversation everyone’s talking about.

According to a qualitative data report from The Metropolitan Area Planning Council, rents around Green Line stations are predicted to increase by 67% and further included that housing prices also see speculative increases.

Acknowledging there is a human impact by income inequality; a cost burden for middle and lower class families, this could potentially push families to be forced out of Medford, losing a sense of local community support and increased neighborhood turnover. This is bad for South Medford.

To create affordable housing, you have to create more housing, and you have to do it in a manner that creates price stabilization and incentives for owner occupancy. Residential tax exemptions are an example of several incentives.

Martin believes real estate performance is entirely based on market volatility. The longer your home sits on the market, the more value it loses, so naturally, real estate pros, value homes according to the average market time of similar homes that have recently sold. Martin emphasizes, this is how simple supply and demand works. Medford has a strong opportunity to maximize on these resources and develop a habitable experience for the South Medford & Hillside community and bolster municipal finances with significant new tax revenue. With more revenue, Martin wants the city to appropriate funding to improve police technology and increase public safety.

“We are vulnerable”, Martin sympathizes as he advocates the importance for a safer Medford Community. “Public safety and school ratings are top priorities for every young professional, first time homebuyer and I know this because Real Estate is my passion”.

How Effective is Republic Parking for Medford? An Editorial by Joe Viglione

republic parking on the sidewalk

Exhibit 1  6:20 PM

Key elements of this story:

1)”Parking Enforcement” had plenty of room to legally park, look at the photo and see the LEGAL parking spaces on the right. The employee should be DOCKED PAY for parking on the sidewalk.

2)Cars in bus stops should be towed.    Hydrants and bus stops should be ENFORCED, not just given a ticket.

3)A person who is supposed to enforce parking putting his vehicle on a curb and a sidewalk, allegedly not legally parked, should know better than to do that in front of a journalist’s home and be so outrageously arrogant about it.
___________________________________________________

“[a]t base, plaintiffs had a constitutionally protected right to record matters of public interest”); Channel 10, Inc. v. Gunnarson, 337

This media outlet does the people’s business.  This media outlet provides proof that Mayor Michael J. McGlynn’s Administration has failed, that McGlynn is a poor leader and is never held accountable.

Parking Commissioner Diane McLeod
Police Chief Leo A. Sacco, Jr.
100 Main St.,
Medford, MA 02155

Dear Chief Sacco and Commissioner McLeod:

The photo above, Exhibit 1, is of a “parking enforcement” vehicle at 6:20 PM, June 12, 2015 parked on the sidewalk at Tony’s Gas on Garfield Ave. off of Salem Street.

_______________________________________________________________

The representative had left the vehicle.  There were two cars parked in the bus stop across from 370 Salem St.

EXHIBIT 2   Also 6:20 PM

have a nice day

 

Rather than deter the incessant blockage of access to the bus, something that has gone on for years in Medford under the McGlynn Administration (some years back this writer/witness personally saw Mayor Michael J. McGlynn jaywalking from the odd side of Salem to the even side to go into 370 Salem St.)  and when you talk about leading by example, here’s an SUV allegedly registered to Michael J. McGlynn’s father, and parked at a bus stop in South Medford -allegedly across from Bocelli’s.   So much for the individual paid by citizens to lead allegedly not leading at all, but allegedly breaking the law and not being held accountable by your police department.

Exhibit 3   SUV with McGlynn bumper sticker parked at a bus stop

“[a]t base, plaintiffs had a constitutionally protected right to record matters of public interest”); Channel 10, Inc. v. Gunnarson, 337

This is prima facie evidence that the pay-to-park “enforcement” which McGlynn went rogue on the city to institute, is an abject failure.   The individual in Exhibit 2 left yet the cars were still there.  A bus came by with the cars still there.

“[a]t base, plaintiffs had a constitutionally protected right to record matters of public interest”); Channel 10, Inc. v. Gunnarson, 337

The woman in the car got out, leaving her car in the bus stop, and said she was going to the store.  This is outrageous, while Republic Parking allegedly waits for people at the meters, here, where parking ENFORCEMENT rather than “gotcha meter watching” is needed, cars stayed in the bus stop, a clear danger to public safety.   Now those who take the bus have to step out into traffic and take their lives into their own hands, for the discussion of Salem Street as the speedway from Route 93 to Malden and Revere is an old conversation.

The woman – seeing my camera/phone said that the parking enforcement person was her “brother.”   She than hurled invective at me that I was “over 60″ (true; which means she shouldn’t be disturbing the peace by loudly yelling at me) and she made a threat of an assault.

EXHIBIT 6   6:24 PM

6 24 transit

At 6:24 pm the Transit police arrived. Two men discussing the situation with the woman from the vehicle STILL in the bus stop. So while the woman ILLEGALLY PARKED and caused a ruckus, her car is STILL in the bus stop, not abiding by the law.   The Transit police should have their report; it sounded like they were telling the woman she was being disorderly, you should read their report.

Exhibit 7   6;37 pm

637

The transit police were still talking to the woman at 6:37 pm along with one officer of the Medford Police Department. As I left I believe I heard the officer mention “disorderly conduct” to the woman.  What you see in these photos are:

a)”Parking enforcement” on the sidewalk of Garfield making it difficult for pedestrians. So much for leading by example.

b)A rather rude “agent” of the parking enforcement who in a very condescending manner kept saying something like: “have a nice day. I’m having a great day.” (paraphrased.)

c)allegedly the Mayor’s father’s vehicle in a bus stop a few years or so ago

d)two cars in the bus stop, which is a FREQUENT OCCURENCE at that particular bus stop on Salem Street

e)AFTER the “parking enforcement” car (my first photo of it from my window was at 6:18 pm) was on the sidewalk, and after it left, it had NO ENFORCEMENT, the cars remained in the bus stop, though the “agent’ allegedly of Republic clearly had spoken with the woman.     IF Medford had real parking enforcement, towing vehicles in a timely manner, the alleged perpetrators wouldn’t “run to the store” while illegally parked; the alleged perpetrators wouldn’t be hurling invective at a man over 60, the traffic would not have obstructions from the parking agent (*allegedly from Republic,) the alleged Mayor might not be found allegedly jaywalking or allegedly parking his dad’s alleged vehicle in a bus stop, and the chief of police in Medford wouldn’t be spending too much time on an idea of Mayor Michael J. McGlynn’s that is a BAD idea, an idea that has caused a ruckus in our city.

This journalist has spoken hundreds of times at the city council about car crashes on Salem Street, a body laying in the street near Cherry and Salem years ago, all sorts of chaos because we have no parking enforcement; we have a lame-duck mayor looking to bleed the citizens dry, to punish good, honest citizens who park legally, and not towing the cars that are causing the problem.

There is something very wrong with the failed leadership of Michael J. McGlynn.  Who are you going to believe?  The lame-duck Mayor, or these photos?

___________________________________________________________

MEDFORD’s parking fiasco was enabled by City Councilor Adam Knight, City Councilor Paul Camuso and City Councilor Frederick N. Dello Russo, Jr.  They marched lockstep with Mayor Michael J. McGlynn and the city is at a disadvantage from those councilors and that lame-duck Mayor’s failure to do “the people’s business.”

McGlynn’s failure to lead on parking is like so many elements of his broken Administration.   A police station falling apart, no access television (though overcharged cable-tv subscribers pay through the nose for it,) a fire station or two or three in need of repair, schools needing repairs, broken streets, infrastructure for water and sewer most likely not updated in years, and now McGlynn is taking a walk, forcing other people to clean up his mess.
