Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
Have you looked at the new police budgets? Apparently the two deputy chiefs just got a ten thousand dollar raise each ?? Wtf?? Patrons haven’t had a raise in 6 years.
Apparently Deputy Police Chief Stanford wrote a letter to the mayor saying he was going to step down because he was doing more work than the captains and they were making more money because they can do details and overtime.The other deputy signed off on it too. So they both got the raises.
So much for defunding the police department right? The privileged few always get what they want. What about the people who don’t get paid while the pandemic is going on?
PS: I know that you will put this article in because you don’t water-down anything.
A servant of the privileged few
