Letter to the Editor:Mayor Curtatone is a Nasty Person, a Fraud and Cop Hater

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!

  1. Mike,

    I interacted on occasion with you and many other fine Somerville Police Officers over the years while on the Somerville Fire Department. You were a good cop! I hope you are enjoying retirement and life.

    You praised the Mayor and I will be the first to say that Mayor Curtatone has done some fine things for the City of Somerville as have other Somerville Mayors.

    But his conduct in regards to the treatment of you is appalling. You have rights to your opinion and free speech. The conduct of the Mayor in your case(and in some others I am sure) is just awful. It shows lack of integrity on the part of the Mayor. HIs treatment of you was retaliatory, mean, and Un-American. He is a nasty person. You know it, I know it, and many others know it. He can make all the speeches he wants and say and do this, but his treatment of you was just plain wrong.

    Abe LIncoln once said “You can fool some of the People sometime, and you can fool some of the People all the time, but you can’t fool all of the People all the time. Amen to that. Mike, I wish you the best as well as to the fine men and women of the Somerville Police and Fire Departments.

    AS for Mayor Curtatone, I hope he never acts like that again. He is the Mayor and no one deserves to be treated like that by the highest elected City Official.
