Typical example of Sciortino not connecting with residents

Sciortino did this to himself. He shouldn't have taken the voters for granted. Can you say sticker campaign! I hope Bob Trane really walks the streets and works hard on his campaign. Bob deserves the opportunity he really works hard for us in Medford. I hope I get to meet him at my door step. If I was Bob Trane I wouldn't take Sciortino for granted.

I don't see what this has to do with "taking the voters for granted". He got the signatures, and they were certified. What he did next (losing them) doesn't appear to have been smart, but that's a different issue.

If Carl friggin' sues again -- and wastes more tax $$$s -- then the Soleil Cafe snot rocket latte surprise is back on. This freak loses the signatures, but because everything he has gotten in life has come free (or through the courts) -- he figures he can commit election fraud now too. No court is going to toss this idiot on the ballot. He is incompetent (and as the judge ruled - NOT losing signatures in not a hard task) and should withdraw from the race completely.

The TRANE has gotten payback for Carl's little dirty campaign against him in the ward 7 election. Niiiiiice. Life's a bitch, huh Carl?

Vacation TIme

Can someone check with the ethic's commision to determine if he is taking vacation time for preparation and court appearances ? He is wasting tax payers money and negligent (again) in his job if he is not.

"Stickers" Sciortino has proven himself as lazy, incompetent, and entitled to special court action.

Carl should now withdraw from the race and "support the party's likely nominee" for the seat. Trane.
Otherwise he is just like the wife of Bill Clinton.
Seen as power hungry, bitter, and devisive.

Regard for voters

"I don't see what this has to do with "taking the voters for granted". He got the signatures, and they were certified. What he did next (losing them) doesn't appear to have been smart, but that's a different issue."
He took the voters for granted by not copying the papers, and submitting them immediately, rather than losing them. He further took them for granted when he stated that if the judge doesn't put him on the ballot regardless, the constitutional rights of those voters who signed his papers would be infringed. Seems pretty clear cut to me!

Vox Pop

I LOST MY HOMEWORK!!! WHAAAAAA!!!!

I am sure Carl "Sticker" Sciortino will be looking for special treatment just like all the "VICTIMS". He did not comply with the law. He is not entitled to special treatment or exemption to the law, period.

State Ethics Laws

I'd also like the State Ethics Commission to check whether it is a violation if he is using state time and money to prepare for court and to appear in court. I also think they should check whether he confers with his attorney on state time, as well as on a state phone. They should also check whether it was a violation of law to keep the signature sheets in his state office. Whew, any more possible violations I missed??

The list of wrongs Carl and the PDS, as a group, have committed here is many. Let me list a few that I can think of quickly:

1. general nincompoopery in losing the signatures,
2. then when he noticed the signatures missing he did not report them immediately (I wonder why!),
3. when he did report them missing he comitted perjury by saying they were stolen - when in fact he knew Buffy or one of his other minions lost them,
4. he then wasted state police time (and our tax payer money) by falsely reporting this as a crime,
5. he then tried to slip copies in as originals; thereby comitting election fraud,
6. then he had a little hissy fit by claiming it was Bob Trane's fault or Galvin's office - libeling both,
7. he then sued (wasted tax $$$) to get on the ballot and was denied,
8. he then sued again (wasting more $$$) - and was denied again,
9. he then says he will waste more of our tax $$$ by appealing a ruling that he has lost twice.

Does that about cover it?

Carl needs to quit his office and the PDS needs to disband. The PDS have been shown to be nothing but a front for a criminal / mafia like organization. We demand the city take legal action and have Carl/Pat and Rebeccah tossed behind bars. We reserve the right to tar and feather as needed and allowed under state law.

Ron Newman

> have Carl/Pat and Rebeccah tossed behind bars

Which bars? P.J. Ryan's and the Burren?

Ron Newman

> Bob deserves the opportunity he really works hard for us in Medford

Can you be more specific? As Ward 7 alderman, I'd expect him to work hard for Somerville, but not so much for Medford.

TruthBTold

Rumors are flying that Sciortino filed a challenge to Trane's papers at the deadline friday. Sounds like desperation move if true. How does he justify this when he has been crying about ballot access in court?

Hello Newman

Update - Bob Trane requests that Ron Newman not be renewed for the Somerville Bike Committee....

Kate

2nd update - Trane's request is denied.

Rainman Avenue

If that is true about Scortino filing a desparate challenge to TRANES papers that he filed, then Scortino definitely doesn't deserve to be representing us. What the hell does Bob Tranes having papers have to do with Carl losing his? Sounds like this kid needs to grow up! We need someone with maturity and experience like BOB TRANE representing us instead of some sour grapes kid who can't keep track of his nomination papers!

Tricky

Speaking of sour grapes, if the tidbit about Trane, Ron Newman and the Bike Committee is true...

I don't believe it (yet), though.

Hello Newman

it's not true (thst I am aware of) - just trying to be funny...

Rainman Avenue

I didn't think it was true either. Bob Trane is a pretty stand up guy and not one to be petty. He'll be an excellent state rep. for ALL the people, even those PDS socialistas.

W7V

Rumor is that Trane will not "double-dip" a la Toomey and (former) Rep Ciampa, and will seek to have his alderman's seat appointed instead of a special election ... just depends on when he resigns.

Tricky

That's quite decent of Trane, not double-dipping.

As far as his (potential) replacement on the BOA. I couldn't possibly imagine why Trane would want to throw the Ward 7 seat up for an open election.

Who are the Great Minds lining up for the appointment? Halloran, again?

The Replacements

Who are the options? Halloran, Rossetti, Buckley .... who else?

Jinkins

rossetti would be the most likely appointee just because she's currently serving in office. halloran would be a smart choice too, but his time may have come and gone already. buckley is a complete doofus and is too close to curtatone. And rumor has it that the congrssman's sons live in ward seven now and are politically active - planning board and governors office. plus we know how close the trane family is to former mayor mike.

Friend of Ward 6

today is monday june 2 2008, did anyone find the papers yet????

Tricky

I thought we had established awhile ago that Bill Roche's dog ate Carl's papers.

Capuano's sons live in Ward Seven?! What's next?

Ron Newman

Appointing Rossetti would require yet another appointment, this time for a vacant School Committee seat.

Of course, all of this presumes that Trane wins the Democratic primary, which is far from a safe bet.

Jinkins

Tricky, i believe they live over by dilboy field now.

Andrew

Or maybe Halloran Jr??

Question

Jinkins - Why would you say that Buckley is a doofus? He does a great job for Curtatone.

Jinkins

i thought halloran jr was too young? and, i think buckley is just way too connected to joe to be condisered his own man.

Mary Lou

Trane!!!!! Please, the guy won the alderman's seat by default, now we will be stuck with him again at the State House. Unbelievable!!! Maybe he should take some elocution lessons before he heads up there.

Imux

Mary Lou, a bit of an elitist are we? Maybe us dumb folks ought to just stick to our guns and religion, huh?

A vote for Obama is a vote for Osama and Hamas.
