    Embarassing City Council

    The meering last night made one thing very clear. Most of these councilors have their own agenda and they are arrogant and incompetent. Let's start with Judy. Tooting her own horn about how she tried to do this and that. You were put in your place by Mr Parrow and I hope you don't plan on running again. Gary that was very noble to attempt to stick up for your fellow councilor but the only thing you did was put yourself in the same category as the others. I was sad to see that as I always thought highly of you. The council president the self proclaimed union guy made a fool of himself and tried to bully Mr Parrow. You sir should also not run again. Is that kid who almost beat you before going to run again? I hope so because you need to go. Mr. Kinnon do you really not know how many fire stations Malden has or were you just making everyone positive what a jerk you are. Get out the broom and sweep these people out of office. Don't think we missed the attempt to make this look like $5.00 per week is the issue because you know it isn't Greg. I was shocked I didn't think you could speak. Just jumping on the bandwagon I guess. You are all lucky you have jobs and maybe when you get voted out of office you can take Barbara's advice and clip some coupons. You should all be ashamed of what you have turned this city into.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    I agree WardWatch, the meeting last night showed exactly how arrogant these Councillors are..Public Safety should be the number one concern right now..The show of people there to support the Fire Fighters should have made that clear to the Council...Right now, I don't give a hoot about parks being renovated, I care about my safety and that of all the citizens..All monies found somehow by the Mayor has to go to Fire and Police...We are being compared to Lawrence, and these people have absolutely NO CLUE!!!!!
    If they pass the Meals Tax, the Mayor came right out and said that that money will not be used for Public Safety..What a disgrace!!!
    He has some kind of vendetta against the Fire Department, it has nothing to do with health care...All these Councillors have full time jobs, why do they need health insurance through the city? Because they don't want to pay for it, but they expect the Fire Fighters to do it....I think all the Councillors should forfeit their health insurance and half their stipends, I mean they can always cut coupons to make up the difference...More and more people are showing up at city hall for the meetings, it must make them very uncomfortable...

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    From what I read of the article, it sounds like the council's just falling apart. No one could agree to anything or with anyone else. It was pathetic.

    No wonder this city is in such dire straits.

    And YouDidMeWrong, I'm so with you on the parks. How about we raze the eyesore that's been left to crumble since it burnt on Route 60 W; fix the infrastructure that's falling apart; fund public safety (and expand it too to deal with the rising level of crime); and start taking responsibility in our government.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

      Again I was there it was embarrassing not one Councilor except
      for Councilor fallon and than she was spoken about in a very
      demeaning tone--Councilor should be Censored from the Council;
      Lets start a petition to remove him.
      Where did the Mayor run too---he flew the coop like a Coward!
         and his Chief of staff looks like a clown when the mayor is not
         pulling his strings. 
         Time for a Change  Change Councilor Kinnon and Councilor
          Anderson he has done nothing for his ward.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    Now they had another shooting last night, and a couple robbed at gunpoint in the West End..I bet they still won't have a PUBLIC meeting about that either...The violence has increased since Labor Day, still no officials have the "canolies" to address the public about it..This is outragous!!

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    The City Council is in a tough position concerning the "Budget-Health Care Issue". But, the mistake EVERY COUNCILOR is making is that they are basing their decisions on what the Mayor wants, rather,
    than the people who elected them.

    Also, the Mayor admitted last night we are currently at "MINIMUM
    MANNING LEVELS" for the Police and Fire. If Malden continues to experience an increase in violent incidents "we are in trouble".
    I feel the only way the Mayor will change his attitude towards 
    Public Safety in this City is when the BUSINESS COMMUNITY indicates they may move out of Malden due to safety concerns.
    Unfortunately, he has already proven how little he values or cares 
    about the citizens' concerns.

    Enough,
    Great points I agree with you except on one thing.

    "But, the mistake EVERY COUNCILOR is making is that they are basing their decisions on what the Mayor wants"

    Councillor Christenson was the only one at the council meeting on Tuesday who actually tried to reach out to be a mediator between the Fire Union and the Mayor's Office. He straight out asked Brian Parrow what the council as a body could do to assist them in this process.
    In my opinion Councillor Fallon made an empassioned speech but it didn't offer any solutions and the Council President just kind of was an instigator.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    GetActive, the Council should have reached out to the Fire Fighters months ago, the only reason why he is doing it is because there where too many residents at that meeting...Christenson is running for Mayor and he needs to look good now in front of the people..

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    Youdidmewrong,
    I don't think that is entirely true because Councillor Christenson pointed out how he had been working with the union all along and Mr. Parrow agreed.
    Mr. Parrow was very well spoken and very outspoken Tuesday night. If Councillor Christenson said anything untrue just to make himself "look good now in front of the people", I have no doubt Mr. Parrow would have called him out.
    Christenson may not have been grandstanding on his efforts but that apparently doesn't mean he hasn't been there.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    Health care is not the issue at all. How come the other cities and towns are not having the same issues as Malden? Health care is a burden and Malden employees are paying more that the surrounding cities already. Playing games with money is finally catching up to these folks who have done very well at our expense.

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    Your wrong. Gary said he met with the union reps. They asked to meet with each one of them and Gary was one that he met with. Not that they are working together.

    I would like to know who the two were that didnt return the calls. Judi and Kinnon maybe?

    I use to like Gary. But the way he defended Judi after she tried to attack that man was a disgrace. And Gary look at all of us saying hes worked with Judi and Blah Blah Blah. And the rest of the meeting Judi sat there giggling with Nester and Lucey. Real funny huh? Judi you maybe the Xray tech but we all can see right through you. Your a puppet for the mayor. I noticed you kissing his butt for 20 min before the meeting.

    The other one im tired of is Frank walking around the meetings handing out flyers with more typos. And he is running against anderson?

    Re: Embarassing City Council

    Here is how I see the 2011 election.....Howard wont run..It will be Fallon against Christenson...Kinnon and Nestor and their people will support Christenson(behind the scenes of course). In turn Kinnon and Nestor get the treasurer and controller jobs. If he gets in.
     Just my thoughts....

    City Hall Corruption

    How come the Mayor is backing Charlie Toomajian?  The State Police Special Investigative Unit conducted an investigation that lasted over a year.  This would lead me to believe that everything they did was a thorough and complete investigation.  The people who got indicted were some very bad people according to law enforcement.  I guess the Mayor believes everyone, but poor Charlie.  Any other public employee who did not have political friends in the right places would of had his pay stopped immediately.  Maybe the Mayor is afraid that Charlie may spill the beans if he didn't keep him on th payroll?
