MAYORAL RECOUNT: STRANGE DAYS ARE UPON US … or … WRINKLES IN THE RE-TALLY

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY NOV. 25, 2019) — With the mayoral recount going into the books, THE PLANET has picked up interesting developments. These wrinkles in the re-tally may escape other local media, but because of our presence in the offices of Berkshire County, through our Secret Squadron THE PLANET collects intelligence easy as picking August blueberries at Berry Pond.

Here’s what we’ve learned (ED NOTE: When we refer to Melissa Mazzeo or Linda Tyer, take it to mean Team Mazzeo and Team Tyer):

  • DELAY OR NOT DELY? — Mazzeo requested the City Attorney to delay the recount until after Thanksgiving week ( Monday Nov. 25). Tyer initially agreed, reasonable since many began their holiday on Friday, taking off from work. Our Z Agents said for that reason it’s been difficult to find people to help today with the all-day process. On Thursday afternoon, we learned, Mazzeo received an e-mail from Steve Pagnotta, who said Tyer agreed to postpone until Dec 13. Mazzeo was “shocked but happy they agreed.” A Tyer spokesperson told THE PLANET the mayor “welcomed [the delay]” End of story? No. Friday morning, Mazzeo received an email from Pagnotta saying he “spoke too soon.” The recount will now take place on the original date  — 8 a.m. today. THE PLANET isn’t sure what to make of the flip-flop. Our contacts within Camp Tyer didn’t want to speculate.
  • RECUSAL REFUSAL? — Mazzeo sent a request to have Jennifer Kerwood recuse herself from being a registrar at the recount for obvious reasons. Kerwood serves on the Registrar of Voters board along with city clerk Michele Benjamin, Tom Hamel, chair, and former Ward 1 councilor Bill Barry. Jennifer is the wife of city finance director and die-hard Tyerite Matt Kerwood. If Tyer were to lose, Kufflinks would be out of a job. This present a dangerous conflict of interest for Jennifer. As of yesterday, Kerwood had not responded to the request. In a related development, council president Pete Marchetti, another zealous Tyer promoter, appointed two alternate registrars. Great, except Marchetti put it on the council agenda for Tuesday night, a day AFTER the recount! Strange doings, since the recount will have already begun. Idle thought: Since Benjamin and Barry are known to favor Tyer, how neutral can they be?
  • DRUM BEAT — Team Tyer has drum-beat a consistent message since Mazzeo issue a formal challenge of the vote, saying publicly and telling THE PLANET privately the mayor won “fair and square” and that “Mazzeo will never make up that many votes.” They also have conveyed a dismissive tone about the challenge, saying they aren’t worried. That’s not been reflected in Tyer’s Facebook supporters, however, who have savaged folks supportive of the recount. THE PLANET has been personally attacked, even though we aren’t “supporting” anyone but simply reporting the developments mainstream local media have ignored or tried to bury. The attacks  provide interesting-though-bizarre reading. Team Tyer did tell them to cool it, an order at least one, to their embarrassment, continues to violate. He’s for “free speech,” you know — except if you don’t agree with him. It’s interesting to note that the “unconcerned” mayor hired pricey, well-known elections attorney Dennis Newman from Boston. “If she has nothing to worry about, why pay for an expensive attorney?” a Mazzeo spokesperson asked.
  • CAN YOU FIND LINDA? — As for Linda Tyer herself, a city hall spy says she was “missing-in-action” all week. Rumor has it that she barred any items from the city council agenda for Tuesday save for only the tax rate issue, even though she or any mayor should have a say in anything on a council agenda. This illustrates what everyone knows, that the rotund council president has no control, except perhaps to guzzle beer and gobble bon-tons. He’s a Tyer boot licker, loving the sole of discretion.

The odds against a significant flip in votes resulting from a recount are steep. Mazzeo knows this. She’s going through this process so that she can take the next step — a lawsuit filed in Superior Court. That’s where the fireworks will be launched.

Why is the lovely Linda Tyer raising municipal taxes 3 weeks after the allegedly fraudulent election when Pittsfield is receiving millions of new dollars in state education aid? Also, what is the deal with the city government’s “free cash” slush fund? Are the local residents and businesses being overtaxed by millions of dollars in Pittsfield? If Melissa Mazzeo takes her alleged “vote tampering” case to Superior Court next month, how much will it cost Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski? What will Pittsfield politics look like if the election was, indeed, fraudulent? Can things get any worse for Pittsfield?

Tim Kushi

Can things get any worse for Pittsfield? Yes, Melissa can continue to embarrass herself, her more passive supporters, and continue her work at keeping the city divided by no doubt instilling in her hardcore followers a sense that Linda is illegitimate, local government is not to be trusted, and probably just further depressing genuine constructive engagement by its citizens… this no matter the certainty of this fiasco of hers–to whatever height it reaches in the courts–will not be in her favor. Her self-described political mentor, Pam Malumphy, operated the same way until she was not only rendered totally unelectable (after 4 huge loses), but showed her as having zero credibility or valuable insight.

You can lose the election and still be correct that Tyer is not qualified to manage departments.Plowing water on doubletime Tim…3.3 under budgeted….This is why Mazzeo ran.Unless our council continues to act like Trump Republicans they must address Tyers inefficiency handling taxpayer money.Somebody on your Trump like execution needs to explain the lack of management …I call it lazy.

Pittsfield politics has had some whoppers over the years. Remember Mayor Gerry Doyle’s missing millions that have never been accounted for? Doyle’s city treasurer Kiley got a severance package to stay silent about that scandal. Remember the Consent Decree with GE? Pittsfield was sold out down the old Housatonic River! Remember Mayor Jimmy Ruberto’s ethics violations? Remember the lovely Linda Tyer forgiving so-called loans to out-of-town millionaire Richard Stanley? In closing, things have not always been on the up and up in good old Pittsfield politics! They don’t call them the Good Old Boys for nothing!

I forgot to mention the recent shakedown by the Berkshire Museum where they sold valuable and historic pieces of art for tens of millions of dollars. The political backers of this horrible deal were led by Good Old Boys Jimmy Ruberto and Gerry Doyle.

Pittsfield politics always sells out the common people, most notably Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski!

At least Pittsfield “stole” the art legally….

A historic museum in Germany has been looted of potentially millions of dollars worth of valuables in a brazen overnight heist in the city of Dresden.

While there is no figure for the value of the items taken yet, German news media speculate the stolen hoard of historic jewelry and museum valuables could be worth many millions of dollars.

Ruberto Gave the Museum 500 k to add air conditioning. Tyer and Farley Bouvier helped get this check written.Then we helped Hancock Shaker village install a solar farm for 450k.They paraded every politician in western ma to get the CC to give them money.Those 2 should pay us back all the money.The stealing of GE cash could be a book.Every giveaway a chapter.Tyer Marchetti spending is historic.Their budget in 2017 and 2018 were not enough.Those two needed 3.3 million extra to close the books .

What is the Moscow Ballet? In Pittsfield? Arts and Culture in The City. The Renaissance under Jimmy Ruberto. My last count of empty Storefronts on “Vibrant and dynamic” North Street was 23 and now probably 24 since the Tyer Headquarters is empty again and maybe 25 since the SHUTTERING of Jim’s House of Shoes a taxpayer for 78 years in Our City. Maybe Tyer’s vote for WorkShop Live. who THE G.E. Economic Development monies subsidized can help We The People. HE WALKED AWAY. BEACON CINEMA , SPICE forgiveness. Renaissance. David Smolover lived in TONY Stockbridge and had Connecticut license plates on his car. Amen.

Dan, thanks for the rundown. I suppose I got a little off topic when it was centered around the social media use and employers. The point I guess I was trying to make is no legitimate business in Pittsfield would be foolish enough to employ people as outwardly spoken as some of the Tyer supporters. In fact, many employers institute social media policies to protect themselves against it. The fact that Mazzeo mulled over the decision to run because of the potential impact to the business says as much. I was surprised to see a number of businesses on North St with Tyer signs in the window.

Tyer is missing for sure.The highway department which in 16 months added 3.3 million in OT removing snow started yesterday plowing asphalt with rainwater on it on doubletime .Tyer is starting where she left off .She needs to get to work and she needs to report publicly what the hell is going on in the offices of City Hall. You get what you vote for.Out of control spending from a l department that is clearly Under budgeted on purpose to fool the CC and Marchetti…..Moon White Caccamo have no financial expertise or interest in this Highway budget being used for politics.Im begging the council mostly the Banker Marchetti to show taxpayer you guys can add.Tyer and Barry are making you look stupid playing this budget game 3 years in a row.

So glad you brought this up. People are reporting that plows were all over the city plowing water puddles around and coming back, as astoundingly, they kept filling back up during a rain storm. Will any of the city councilors dare to discuss this? Because if they don’t they will prove their worthlessness as watchdogs and that we cannot expect anything of value from them. I want to hear from Moon, if she shows up, as she is always acting like she cares but has been much more talk than action. Double time on Sunday for plowing the puddles seems like a discussion worth having.

In a recount, I would think that it would make sense that both camps have observers, the Registrar simply be present, but that the actual counting be performed by people totally independent. Having loyalists of either camp, especially Tyer who stands to lose the most, is sort of like post election gerrymandering. From national to local, our politics are disgustingly polarized. What a greedy pathetic lot our politicians have become.

With comments all over social media it seems that one of the main reason for the recount is the fact that Mayor Barry was in an area that he should not have been in City Hall. Wondering if he is still one of the observers for the Tyer camp? He should not be allowed to be in the room. I also am very tired of the Tyer camp asking that Melissa pay for the recount. If it is true the recount is because of Barry, the Tyer camp should pay for it. Both he and his wife the Lovely Linda should have known better. They should be ashamed and embarrassed that they have caused this. Also, since the plows were pushing the rain around yesterday it proves that Lovely Linda did not listen to anything the taxpayers were telling her during the campaign. She… Read more »

The secret to making money at our local newspaper is to report a lot of local news and do it as a observer of what is happening.The people of Pittsfield have begged the Berkshire Eagle to do local reporting and they will buy because they trust it. Stop filtering Pittsfield news and stop being a day late to the story.The Eagle knows where the stories are.The CC creates budgets and there is a story in every department in that budget…….The Berkshire Eagle has choses not to make money.

Again with this Morrison joker in the Berkshire Eagle today. Trumpsteria follows his ilk all over the world, apparently. Morrison, an Eagle board member (that should tell you all you need to know right there), seems to be currently gallivanting around Europe and finding parallels to the evil Trump everywhere he turns. I had tried to post a while ago on his totally gratuitous Trumpsteria in his piece on the mafia in Sicily. Hysterical, I tell ya. Now Morrison in his Trumpsteria finds all kinds of parallels between the US and Belle Epoque France with the Dreyfus affair, and the new movie out by the pedophile Roman Polanski. Too bad about Polanski and this movie because I’d really like to see it if not for him. And not uncharacteristically for the elite Left, Morrison seems to downplay Polanski’s penchant for activities with underage girls.… Read more »

So did Helen Moon question why the plows were sent out to burn up 500 gallons of gas while scraping the roads and pushing water around? Did anyone ask who gave the order to send the plows out and if that person is qualified to make such decisions? And I ask because it may rain again on Thanksgiving day and I am sure the plow drivers would welcome the bountiful Holiday pay. Does the mayor or anyone on the council even give a shit about such things? Serious question. I really want to know.

Can you guys just give it a rest and accept she lost? Tighten your tin foil hats and look at the fact that more people voted for Tyer over someone with nothing but obstructionist tendencies on the council and no policy plans. Count the votes as many ways as you want.

The whole absentee thing is funny. Could it be that many people who typically don’t vote were told that it was going to be a tight race and submitted ballots?

Blare, As a Mazzeo supporter, I agree with you. Tyer campaigned a lot smarter and piled on the absentee ballots of people who would otherwise not vote on election day or are out of the area. From the majority of what I am seeing, the absentee results put Tyer over top. I think any neutral party would agree that Tyer not withstanding the few looney’s that post everyday about her on FB, had a much better team behind her.

Also, I wouldn’t lump all Mazzeo supporters in that bucket. If she has legitimate issues with people in locations where they were not supposed to be then she has every right to pursue that issue.
