Dear Billy T. at The Somerville News Weekly,
This mayor Curtatone is a nasty person. He claims not to treat people like dirt, but he does indeed treat people like dirt.
A retired Somerville Police Captain was critical of Curtatone on the internet because of the high turnover of Police Chiefs in Somerville after Curtatone removed the Chief of Police position from Civil Service(even though he was for Civil Service when he was an Alderman). Taking the Chief out of Civil Service gives the Mayor control of the Department.
Doesn’t treat people like dirt? He also mistreated a retired Fire Department employee who reported serious wrong doing that he endured. This happened before this firefighter retired. His own Union abandoned him. I could go on and on.
Curtatone is a power-hungry political hack. This is not the Somerville I grew up in, that’s for sure.
And why did Curtatone support those protesters who shut down the roads in protest? Why did he ask the Court to dismiss the charges? Because it’s good politics and gets him votes.
His shitbag cousin Police Somerville Police Officer Alex on paid leaves for 2 years. He was fired by Dot gay and because he is related to Joe he was reinstalled. Now paying with phoney money in Cambridge.
I neglected to mention how he mistreated the retired Police Captain. Retired police officers in Somerville are allowed to work paid police details, a nice lucrative position.
After Curtatone read this retiree’s post, he told the then Chief of Police, Chief Pasquriello, to have this retiree turn in his badge. He was told that this retiree, critical of the Mayor, was not to work anymore paid details.
Curtatone professes to want to hear everyone’s opinion? I don’t think so!
And ask Curtatone how he “treated George McClean, when he was Chief of Police.
Curtatone is a fraud. Payton Corbett for Mayor.
Speaking on my brothers and sisters in blue!
