Martinez should go out and get as many of the Daut votes on his own and forget about seeking or accepting Daut's endorsement.

Come on Jack, you got the MAYOR, Clean Gene, you are a sure bet to loose again. You know what they say three strikes your out. Just get used to it you are a hack, its about time to buy you own insurance, are you not an agent?

P.S. Don't the sun shine here anymore I should have stayed south, but how could I really stay in that sun?

I see that new Lt. Matt Wall's promotion is subject to verification of his exemption to the residency rule. you can get an exemption? HE LIVES IN WORCESTER!!! What about M.G.L. Chapter 48 Sec.99A? Or does that only apply to the Somerville Police? I guess his buddy Lt. Gov. Murray (D)WORCESTER will take care of that for him. Then it will be all smiles in the Worcester Hills.

Don't turn your back on Jack yet. He is an old somerville boy and there's nothing better than a good ole' fashion fight. Jack may surprise you.

TSN is the best!

I love this newspaper...the content, the timeliness, the relevancy - you have really stepped up your game and you are all bringing excitement back to the local scene. Keep up the good work at The Somerville News!

I've been dealing with post traumatic stress disorder on and off since I came back from Viet Nam in 1968. I think that Bill Shelton's column this week says more about the subject, in less space, than anything I've ever read. I would like my nephew who is serving with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force in Anbar Province to read it. Would you post it online?

Seems there are a lot of people leaving this Administration. Mayor’s Aide, Janice D.L. will be leaving as soon as next month due to family reasons. This exit taking place just after she got that incredible salary increase. You may not be so surprised to see who fills those stiletto heels when she goes.

Also sending in his resignation will be the Treasurer, Bill F. Seems Billy wanted to go back to his old spot with the union but the Mayor says “No Way Billy Boy”. If you’re out, you’re out completely. This isn’t sitting too well with Billy from what I am hearing. Time to speak up Bill. What can you tell me?

Oh, look who is walking in those red stiletto heels. None other than Mr. Buckley, ex-Mayor’s Aide, currently Lights & Lines/Highway Superintendent, who by the way, has no license to cover anybody in the Lights and lines Office. You talk about stepping into a bucket of Chit, now there is another good raise for you Mike. It is amazing how appointees in this administration can work as they do without the proper licenses. Just ask the Superintendent of ISD. He should know.

Who will be next? Time will only tell.

“Please stop the rain from falling down on me”! This was a popular tune back several years ago but is coming back to the hit parade at the Academy Room in the Police Station.

Word has it since the last two rain storms water has been infiltrating still inside the building where Italian Design; alias G & C Construction, performed the work to fix an ongoing problem with water in that room.

I wonder if the Mayor or Boss Hog will call Italian Design back to correct the problems they did not fix? I tried goggling and calling directory assistance to find out Italian
Designs phone number but they don’t seem to exist. Maybe they should just call Gino, the Mayors’ brother-in-law?

Truth B  Told

It seems the ward 6 Alderwoman has become a nasty bit of work. It was a very transparent move on her part to attack a businessperson’s lively hood so that she could stifle his support of a candidate that she does not support.

Where is the outrage of the so-called progressive posters on this site? I guess it is ok if it is one of the progressive team using dirty tactics to trample the first amendment.

What did the 'Progressive' do in the name of 'transparency'?

You know the old adage, 'do as I say, not as I do'. The Progressives are really good at it!
What exactly did she do?

Yes, I too congratulate the Firefighters getting their promotions. But don't forget, that was the Mayors first step with the Police Department in making a deal to take the Chief's position out of Civil Service.

Tricky

Before you drag your favorite progressive whipping girl back into the virtual woodshed for another round, could it be too much to ask *why else* Gewirtz might be stepping on Kevin Douglas' toes? What business does he own? Why might there be an issue over a parking lot?

Could it have anything to do with another business? Russell Disposal? (Some time ago, a blogger here guessed Douglas' business owned Russell, which someone else stated was incorrect) Do Russell and Broadway Brake have some kind of kiss-kiss deal?

Please, a little more digging to go with the dirt.

Buckley........blahahahaha........sexist pig. The Mayor just might have a good old sexual harassment suit on his hands if Buckley gets that job - oh oh oh and he will have his drinking partner back.
As for "The nose" in Ward 6 I didn't know she could read.
And that Martinez guy.........geez....I think I'm going to throw up.
