By Bob Katzen

The law was adopted in 1995 as part of a welfare reform package that was aimed at discouraging families already receiving public support from having more children.

STEALING SOMERVILLE Death of an Urban City by William Tauro

An excellent read! Makes for a perfect gift! An absolute collectors item!

The book Stealing Somerville has been released and in bookstores shelves worldwide and next the movie! 566 pages of telling the Curtatone‘s life story of corruption!

Stealing Somerville: Death of an Urban City is an expose of abuses, a compilation of articles from Somerville News Weekly, a local newspaper. William Tauro is investigative journalist and publisher of newspaper. Tauro shows pervasive effects of Joseph Curtatone’s six terms in office. Sources claim exit ramps leading to small businesses were closed to drive them out, as well as houses and properties being taken by eminent domain. The administration and development partners do not give market value for properties. Land is appropriated by city and housing is built under the aegis of local government. People who want to build use companies approved by the administration. Bids of contractors and vendors are tampered with so negotiations favor municipal administrators. The administration charges firefighter candidates $10,000 to secure employment. One case resulted in death. The candidate, a navy SEAL, and scoring high on the entrance exam, was turned down. His father refused to pay the fee. The candidate took his life. Cover-ups are made by the police for the mayor. A policeman, the mayor’s cousin, attempted to rob a deceased victim’s valuables. A gay policeman was denied rights to address negative treatment. His pension is questioned. The mayor’s drug usage fuels problems. No rebuttals or charges have been filed against Tauro. An investigation by the federal government is under consideration. The mayor was reelected for a seventh two-year term. The Board of Aldermen wasa replaced by new blood due to Tauro’s publications during election. Hopefully, this change will reach the corner office.
