I’m just hoping that the people of the city of Boston do a thorough and complete search/investigation on Somerville Superintendent Mary Skipper on her seriousness misjudgment call in Somerville especially of an incident that happened a few years back in Somerville regarding a terror threat with a manifesto.
Read the articles below and they will describe what happened in its entirety. Somerville School Superintendent Mary Skipper denied the facts and called me a liar to hide the truth while misleading and not informing parents of the serious threat.
It even got to extent that then mayor Joseph Curtatone asked then Somerville Police Chief David Fallon and then Deputy Chief of Police Paul Trant to invite me out for a beer, try to sweet talking me into keeping it quiet as a favor for the mayor and superintendent. I told them both to get lost and reported it!
In my opinion Somerville School Superintentdent Mary Skipper is nothing but a political hack puppet who is always and easily controlled by the powers to be for her own advantage. My article regarding the terror threat, regardless of whether she thought it was true or not, (but it was absolutely true and verified by the then Somerville Chief of Police David Fallon), she had a moral and professional obligation to warn the parents of that threat, but she decided not to. In my opinion she failed miserably in my book and should’ve been fired on the spot.
Please read the articles below and you will see what I’m talking about.
I hope that this article gets forwarded and reaches the Boston City Council and the people of Boston so they are made aware of Mary Skipper’s in my opinion inability to lead the City of Boston School Department:
