Dark Corruption Allegation Clouds Hovering Over Somerville Elected Curtatone Siblings


By William Tauro 

This past Wednesday, a formal ten page letter notice was delivered to Mayor Joseph Curtatone at Somerville City Hall, the Somerville Chief of Police at the Police Station, Registrar of Deeds Maria Curtatone in Cambridge at her office at the Middlesex Register of Deeds as well as to twelve other people named recipients regarding allegations of corruption within the Curtatone Administration over the past several years. 

The letters were hand delivered by David Marriott, a spokesperson for Somerville Police Officer Luitenent Michael Mulcahy. 

Marriot also stated in an exclusive interview with The Somerville News Weekly as well as in a letter stating:”Dear Mr Tauro, I am providing you with a small portion of information regarding corruption in Somerville.” “The following addresses are bogus land deals involving corruption in Somerville. Here are just a few of the bogus land deals (listed below)that Alex the Mayor and his sister are involved in regarding corruption.” “In my opinion the Mayor and his sister should spend the rest of there lives in prison for what they have done to good citizens.


David J Marriott”

I have this information and more

Thank you

David J Marriott”
Marriot told us that the alleged accusations consist of corruption, fraudulent land deals, drug involvement and illegal discrimination complaints.
He also told us that “a timeline exists of fraudulent land deals and transactions, money laundering and fraudulent asset conveyances that were allegedly orchestrated by Mayor Joseph Curtatone, his sister Middlesex County Register of Deeds Maria Curtatone as well as by their cousin Alex the Somerville Police Officer.”

Officer Mulcahy’s statement in his letter also writes about a police coverup and evidence tampering that denounced the prior Somerville News Weekly article and validates the story with credibility that was accurate and on point regarding the allegations revolving around the DPW Overtime Scandal. 
His letter also alleges that the investigation into the allegations were compromised, evidence tampered with and covered up by the investigating officers for the Curtatone Administration to cover up the scandal. 
The letter also alleges that Mayor Curtatone provided favors for many friends and associates via allowing the Somerville DPW to carry out pavement projects and curb-cuts throughout different locations to be done on weekends with no permits and orders slips in all the while the DPW workers were receiving overtime while doing this.  

Marriot told us in an interview that “Mayor Joseph Curtatone ordered Somerville Police officers in cruisers to stop his vehicle as he left city hall after hand delivering the letters to the mayor’s office.”
” He also stated that “The mayor sent so many police cruises there to stop him and that you would have thought someone had shot the president or something while treating him as a criminal!”
Marriot also added that “The Mayor also ordered an unmarked police cruiser with with two officers to follow my vehicle and stake out at a location in Lynn Massachusetts at my home for over two hours and all the the Somerville tax payers expense.” 
These allegations come after other prior allegations of corruption in the Curtatone Administration in Somerville earlier this month. 
Mayor Curtatone is facing two opponents in this coming primary in September and his sister Register of Deeds Maria Curtatone is up for reelection next year.  
In the prior allegations of corruption, The Somerville News Weekly has urged Mayor Curtatone, his DPW Administrator and two ward aldermen to step down amidst these allegations. 
Below is a copy of the letter that was written by Somerville Police Lieutenant Michael Mulcahy that was served.

  1. How the mighty fall….

    It’s about time you morons that bought his phony liberalism learned the truth.


  2. I guess your police union is just like the Somerville Firefighters union. They have stood by and let certain members get shafted in the past. Unions these days are merely a club. If you are not a member, you get no representation.

  3. As a former employee at SPD (who was also run out because of bogus accusations). I fully back up everything being said in Officer Mulcahey’s letter. I never knew how much corruption and cover-ups were going on until witnessing it with my own eyes. And of course NO-ONE will ever stand in to help. Not even the Union… Unfortunately, in the city of Somerville it is all about “who you know”, rather than your ability to perform and commitment to your job. Ahhh The stories I could tell….

  4. Wow! I’m pretty much speechless after reading officer Mulcahey’s letter! Who would have thought that there is that much discrimation and corrupt activities going on within the SPD and the Mayor’s office! I am so sorry for what you have been subjected to for so many years! Praying that things turn around in the most positive way for you! God Bless you and Daniel!

  5. Dear Lieutenant Mulcahy,

    I’m sorry for what you have endured and over such a long period of time.

    It’s such a horrible story. I can understand some of what you’ve experienced since I too have dealt with sexual harassment and gang-stalking, mobbing and other forms of intimidation in several office environments during my career. Many will not believe who they are–some highly respected employers who are described in the media as generous philanthropists.

    There is currently a bill before our legislators at the statehouse to enforce prevention of workplace bullying and harassment. It hadn’t had much success over past years, but with more victims coming forward, hopefully it will one day be made into a law allowing the abuser to face criminal charges. There have been suicides due to workplace harassment. Mainstream media should investigate further and make education mandatory at schools and in the workplace.

    I know there are good and bad cops, as in other professions. In a dangerous job such as yours, officers must strengthen their work relationships because in times of crisis, it’s who you depend on most, your partners and fellow officers.

    It’s time for a new chief as well as a new mayor. Once they are out, it will be time to implement much needed training so this doesn’t happen again. Above all, everyone should maintain professionalism, respect and acceptance.

    Please know that you are not alone. We stand behind you and will demand justice for you as well as others who were harmed by members of this administration.

    1. It will be hard to get a parking space near the police station or city hall when all the news station big trucks with the huge satellite dishes congregate in the city to cover this expanding story.

  6. Looks like a prior post predicting a shit storm headed for the Mayor is accurate. This might make Hurricane Harvey look like a small shower.

  7. Well, I completely respect Officer Mulchay’s bravery in coming forward. Most people know however, that Curtatone operates this way and is obviously trying to force him off the job like he has done to so many others. He will not fire him outright because he knows he will face legal action and won’t win in civil service. He just forces people to resign on their “own” so there is no recourse. It is amazing that descent hardworking city employees are harassed and lose their jobs but his corrupt drug addicted cousin Alex, who sold drugs to kids at Somerville High as a resource officer, can get away with anything. I heard that he is still being paid after being out of work for 3 years now. And what happened to his counterfeit money allegation? This whole family is despicable and I will be the first in line to watch them go down one by one. People have to keep on speaking out. Eventually these scum bags will fall!!!

    1. Dear Mr. Mulcahy:

      Watch your back. This Mayor and his sidekicks are evil and dangerous. I know of an employee of the City of Somerville who went through much of what you are experiencing.

      It is a most hostile work environment in Somerville for some employees. I will talk to the employee that I mentioned to see if he will come forward on your behalf and give testimony and evidence that you can use. He, like you, knows “where the bodies are buried.”

      I understand that Deputy Trant’s nickname at the SPD is “The baby-faced assassin.” Watch out-these are bad people!

      1. You hit the nail on the head. Somerville has been run like a mafia family for almost two decades.
        Worst of all is this man was elected on the backs of people he cast off as soon as he cemented himself as a fraud liberal-social justice warrior.
        He opposed the Wynn project in Everett for ONE
        Reason ONLY. He wasn’t making any money in the exchange. Cry about the traffic and quality of living for the residents of Somerville after you lobbied for 10+ years for that nightmare at assembly row. You , not only inconvenienced the citizens of your town but the 3-4 surrounding towns that sit in traffic for hours a day just trying to get to work.

    2. Ann, Joe is not the only employer who forces employees to resign so he can escape paying them their rightful compensation. It’s a tactic that is becoming quite popular among the non-profits and corporations. The Labor Laws in this country must be strengthened and those who obviously are breaking employment and or union laws should be fined heavily personally and investigated.

    3. The cop cousin is collecting $82k while on administrative leave and receiving treatment for an addiction problem. There is a pending investigation into the alleged counterfeiting charge of passing a $50 and $20 dollar bill at the Hotel Sonesta, Cambridge (source: Channel 5 Investigative Team)
