The result of my RMV query showed the registered owner, .revoked license.

Late Breaking News For Newstalk Shout Out:
Well, did we called it right in last week’s Newstalk Shout out? Hit the nail right on the head! We heard through the grapevines that the police chief resigned today! We also heard that anyone appliying to be interim chief until they find a replacement will not be allowed to apply to be the chief. We heard that the interim chief could even qualify to go as back possibly far as a lieutenant, but who knows,? Alway remember that this is Somerville and anything is possible! Let’s just hope the the mayor remains with an open mind and stays within the homegrown local box this time and picks a local talent from within the department! We wish Former Somerville Police Chief Tom all the best and thank you for a job well done sir!
