PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

ADD 1 9-26 p.m. — Breaking news. The defamation case launched by Barry Clairmont, husband of Mayor Linda Tyer, against Tyer’s mayoral opponent Melissa Mazzeo has been settled. We’ll have more later.

THE PLANET got word through our spies, and we got on the horn to Mazzeo, who confirmed the out-of-court agreement had been reached.

Watch now. THE PLANET is breaking this news. It won’t be long before The Boring Broadsheet contacts the principals in the case and claims they got it first.

Bet the house.

ADD 2 later 9/26 p.m. — Mazzeo said she settled based on her insurance company’s recommendation. Last week, Mazzeo’s insurers paid Clairmont $140,000.

“I wanted to take this to court,” Mazzeo told THE PLANET, “but [the insurance company] wanted the case settled and off the books. I agreed. It would have been costly [and time consuming] to hire private representation, so in August, we went to mediation in Boston. We went from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. That’s when [Clairmont] dropped the defamation charge and changed it to ‘pain and suffering,’ which is much easier to prove than defamation.”

She said Clairmont came into arbitration demanding an unrealistic amount of money as well as a public apology. She said there’s no way she would ever agree to an apology or the initial amount sought in damages, because her claims were correct. Her insurance lawyer negotiated downward toward a much more favorable number, she said.

“[Clairmont] was behind the counter [where the votes were being counted]. He shouldn’t have been there. He had direct access to the ballots. I didn’t say he stole ballots, only that he had access to them. The recount was the only way we could be assured [of an honest tabulation].

“I wanted to go to trial,” Mazzeo said. “I wanted to take jurors to city hall to show how Clairmont went to where the votes were being held.” She says he didn’t use the public entry to city hall like every other private citizen but entered the inner sanctum through doors for official use only.

“I stand by my charges,” Mazzeo said.

———- ooo ———-

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MON.-TUE. SEPT. 25-6, 2023) — Word from our spies is that the mayoral debate filmed 3 p.m. Sept 21 at The Boring Broadsheet (the day of the hit piece on John Krol) will be released. When? That’s another matter.

In our previous column, THE PLANET broke the news that the debate took place at Picklefield’s lone, loco, local daily newspaper. According to sources, the paper initially had not intended the video be published or aired, ordering it spiked. But after we revealed that the forum had taken place, the higher ups had no choice but to go ahead with it. The BB was outed.

Through our Z-Agents, we received a copy of an e-mail sent Sept. 23 by Eagle executive editor Kevin Moran. It states: “The question came up when will we post the video, and I believe it will be no sooner than Wednesday. I need the time to get it all together.”

Let’s parse.

The question came up when will we post the video” — Gosh, I wonder where the question came from. Could it be … THE PLANET?!?!

“I believe it will be no sooner than Wednesday” — Huh? “no sooner than Wednesday [Sept. 27, almost a WEEK AFTER THE DEBATE]? They need that long to use PhotoShop and AI to make Marchetti come off as “mayoral?”

I need the time to get it all together” — Kev, you’ve never written a truer line.

The matter demonstrates the power of sunshine. It disinfects. Problem is, there being no alternative media other than this one covering the great city of Picklefield, citizens are left with three choices:

  • Read THE PLANET and bring sunscreen for the sunlamp intensity.
  • Read the BB and be misinformed.
  • Stay uninformed, which The Suits dearly love.

———- ooo ———-

One phunny thing, both phunny ha-ha and phunny strange (but not phunny surprising), is how even the Marchetti Kool-Aiders are admitting the BB‘s slam on Krol was a “hit piece.”

Talking with one of Peter’s inner circle, we walked away with the impression that they had been eagerly awaiting the publication of the story even before its Sept. 20/21 appearance. That’s how they drew it up, months before employing Stacy Carver of Animal Dreams and Berkshire Money Management to act as Mata Hari.

In politics, most everyone has a price.

THE PLANET is “shocked. Shocked.”

Paraphrasing our source, who requests anonymity probably for the silly reason of wanting to stay alive and continue what is a rather good living in town, “timing” for releasing the Animal Dreams material became a matter of not if but when as early as January this year.  Above all, it was important for Pete to have deniability, that is, to be able to state he had nothing to do with it and knew nothing about it.

Right. Of course, Pete not knowing about something is par for the course, or haven’t you seen him preside over the dais of our Right Honorable Good Friends on the city council.

Why do you think that Marchetti told THE PLANET he had  “no comment” when asked about the hit.

It’s the safest thing to say, so apropos for a man who is in constant fear of taking a stand on anything. That’s the dude Picklefield wants as mayor?

———- ooo ———-

THE PLANET asked Krol about the status of his company, 180 Media.

Krol said the business is still operating.

“180 currently is doing work with our clients,” he said. “We’re still active.”

So is our investigation into the layered onion published by the BB.

It was always going to be published, the question was of getting parts of it edited, and formatted and compressed for internet publication. Technical issues not some conspiracy.

I voted for John in the primary, will not be voting for him in the general election. I was thinking of not voting for him at all but you’ve convinced me to vote for Marchetti.
If John can come up with the statements that proves it was all some sort of bizarre mistake, I might vote for him but he doesn’t know a router from a routing number from an account number and that is scary.
He also can’t be forthcoming and has to blame his ex wife for something she had nothing to do with, that’s just low.

The last two minutes of the Dirty Bird (Berkshire Eagle)’s mayoral debate dealt with the newspaper’s controversial bombshell news story and editorial alleging John Krol is a “thief”. John Krol said that he was treated unfairly, which I agree with him about. Peter Marchetti said that it had nothing to do with his campaign and he had no comment on the matter.

The first 32 minutes of the mayoral debate was interesting to watch and hear. Pittsfield is a distressed postindustrial “rust belt” city and the downtown’s panhandlers and the alleged harassing young men of tourists and other visitors needs to be addressed by the mayor’s office.

The biggest issue in Pittsfield politics that stood out to me is the city’s excessive spending. I thought that John Krol was more realistic about fighting for state funding and managing city spending than Peter Marchetti, who previously said that he would have to take a pay cut from his job at a bank without saying that he would cash in on the lucrative mayoral city pension plus perks for life after he would retire from being the would-be Mayor of Pittsfield.

I did not like how John Krol looked back in time. I liked that Peter Marchetti looks forward in time, and that he challenges the so-called status quo mentality of his opponent. I think it will be a close election similar to the 2019 mayoral election that Mayor Linda Tyer won versus Melissa Mazzeo by a small margin 4 years ago.

He is the status-quo.

Why don’t we ask him a really important question, like how many illegal invaders he’s going to welcome into Picklefield.

2024 is right around the corner. Boston has to clean up. The D’s will lean heavily on Tricia Farley-Country Buffet (D-illegal invaders) to “welcome” a few illegal invaders “out west.” You know, to add more “diversity and inclusion” to Picklefield, according to all DIE leaders.

Healy just got $108,000,000 of our federal tax dollars to help too.

All of the current candidates want to be elected no opposition and no questions asked. They think they’re doing us a big favor just running for office.They think it’s ok to run ruff shod with the property tax increases. Or ok with bad plowing,no plowing,reducing water sewer rates,high crime, bad traffic patterns and a lot of controversial projects that taxpayers aren’t for but only have recourse at election time,but never Vote.

I was watching the C C meeting tonight and was flabbergasted at the exchange with the current D P W director. One of the councilors knew nothing about the subject and it showed. But the obvious part was his continued ineptitude of grasping what citizens want. They don’t want roundabouts or narrow roads or ridiculous bike lanes and they have already made their opinions be known with trash removal.

If citizens are against future political nonsense then we must get out the vote in November. We do have choices at least look at other candidates for change.

First, I am not enthusiastic about either candidate.

Felt in watching that John did come across with the some of the confidence that Pittsfield needs. He has an excitement about the job where Marchetti seemed bored. In watching body language, John was sitting tall, Peter was slumped in the chair looking gray and tired and if you watch it closely many times when John was speaking, Peter was twiddling his thumbs.

Peter kept saying that we keep having conversations about issues, but we don’t do anything about them. Peter, you have been a part of these conversations for way too many years and have not chosen to not resolve anything.

As far as “stolen” money goes, how much money has been and still is being stolen from the taxpayers of Pittsfield? For eight years plus our taxes have been increasing, for what, the city is a mess. As the president of the CC why can’t Peter tell us where the pot money is, why it is not being utilized for streets, where is our excise taxes going?

Bottom line, Pittsfield is still headed down the toilet, if it can go any further. This past weekend I was in Lee, Lenox, Adams and North Adams downtowns. All 4 also had “boots on the ground” chatting with folks. All four were clean, beautiful fall flowers and loads of folks walking enjoying the sites. In viewing North Street, empty store fronts, panhandlers, people passed out in doorways, nips and garbage everywhere and weed wacked median strips, just pathetic, there is NO reason Pittsfield should be looking this way with the high budget we are all paying for!

“Peter kept saying that we keep having conversations about issues, but we don’t do anything about them. Peter, you have been a part of these conversations for way too many years and have not chosen to not resolve anything.”

And this last year or two there were plenty of opportunities to have those conversations. Sometimes with a dose of humor to entice a debate.

I had petitioned for City Council to withhold discretionary funding for Parks (allowing safety and maintenance) until they resolved the illegal theft and abuse of parklands.

There was no debate, no deliberation, and not even a suggestion for alternatives or committee review. Terrified councilors were afraid to touch the Third Rail of squatters seizing public (and private) property. That said, I doubt a hypothetical Councilor Krol would have added much.

The narrowing of the road on west street at Dorothy Amos Park is the hairbrained idea of Ricardo morales and ward 6 councilor Dina guiel. This will increase head on collisions by 5 fold or more. What is needed there is a flashing red and yellow light and cautionary signage
There has been very few accidents at that intersection In the past 100 years
The most recent death at that intersection was a tragic event but it could have happened at just about any busy intersection here in pittsfield. We must learn from that death and Try to change driving habits which will save lives. Flashing red and yellow lights with cautionary signage will go a long way in preventing this type of tragedy we experienced here some 5 months ago

If so then I would expect him to be firing some of them for making him look like a dirty, calculating, win at all costs kind of guy. Not someone people would trust to be their mayor.

If not, what in the world might they do next without his knowing? Kinda scary huh Pete? Is he being used already? Like a puppet perhaps?

Even if krol can prove it was a mistake, he’s doomed. The fact that it happened and he couldn’t disclose this when he announced shows he can’t be trusted. I’ve never met either of the 2 candidates for mayor but I can’t in good conscience vote for Krol. If he did it once he will do it again.

Facts:

The Berkshire Eagle published their day-after hit piece slamming Krol, with the 47-minutes-til-press-time opportunity for Krol to respond.

The Berkshire Eagle then published an editorial (their opinion) determining and stating what Krol’s proper response should be – “release all of your (private) financial information to prove you did nothing wrong.”

You know what the Berkshire Eagle did not publish? Any article or media reporting Krol’s response. Josh Landes/WAMC published a report. WAMC gave Krol an equal amount of presstime to respond.

The Berkshire Eagle published no report defending Krol’s side. They gave him nothing (except for that 47 minute countdown).

The bias, the intent, and the slimey politics are abundantly clear. It is Marchetti who should redeem himself and condemn this kind of political attack on his opponent.

45 minutes is not enough time to gather bank records that are 4 years old. Acquiring documents to support a simple argument (1 concrete point) is also hard work.

I see the 45 minute deadline as serving the purpose of allowing the Eagle to claim “we gave him an hour” while denying the opportunity to respond. They could have delayed the report another two days. It is interesting that they did not.

Dan, you are correct to separate the story into one regarding the Krol allegations and the business of the Berkshire Eagle.

The most recent “debate” on building maintenance ( in today’s eagle) shows how eager Krol is to spend money on brand new school buildings. If anything, a school or two should be closed to reflect declining enrollment. He has no financial acumen or restraint. This guy should not be involved in the city’s finances because he has no clue.

God knows I’ve had many go arounds with both krol and Marchetti at CC meetings. They are clones of each other and neither would make a good mayor. The point is did krol steal from a charity or not. We can see a paper trail where by he used AD money to benefit himself. Is that info factual or not? If yes he should remove himself from the mayor’s race forthwith. On the other hand Marchetti has many yes votes as the leader of the rubber stampers guiel kavey persip Conant white who have given the secretary Carte blanche to rob the pocket books of the beleaguered tax and Rate of payers. Both have caused pain to the tax and rate payers and as such they should both drop out of the mayoral race as it is a slap in the face to the hard working tax and rate payers of this city. So far we have seen two individuals with no concern for the tax and rate payers and as such they should quit the mayor’s race immediately. Pittsfield deserves better than these two buffoons.

But I once had a cat that did want to eat the deer that kept coming to the apple trees in our back yard. And what he did was to make friends with the deer and they talked about their problems, in particular their medical issues and such, but I digress. So the deer became complacent and one day my cat just wallop the deer over the head with a shovel and ate it right there next to the back steps. So maybe you don’t know as much about cats as you think you do bozo.

He told me that he would make a great official in countries such as China, Russia, North Korea, Iran…. I told him that Pittsfield is in the U.S.A., not those other countries. He kicked me out of the Gated Community that he lives in with his second wife, Mayor Linda Tyer, along with Pittsfield’s Pot King “Luciforo”. I shouted to him that he is in (no) good company with Nuciforo. He said that he is going to sue the next Mayor of Pittsfield to change the city’s name to RETRIBUTION! I shouted out to him that he should change Pittsfield’s name to Barry’s RETRIBUTION. He told me to go back to my homelessness sidewalk on the corner of First and Fenn Streets.

Is Melissa that dumb? don’t answer that. Her lawyer must be pulling his hair out

[Clairmont] was behind the counter [where the votes were being counted]. He shouldn’t have been there. He had direct access to the ballots. I didn’t say he stole ballots, only that he had access to them. The recount was the only way we could be assured [of an honest tabulation].
“I wanted to go to trial,” Mazzeo said. “I wanted to take jurors to city hall to show how Clairmont went to where the votes were being held.” She says he didn’t use the public entry to city hall like every other private citizen but entered the inner sanctum through doors for official use only.
