ADD 1, OCT. 28, P.M.THE PLANET has unearthed bombshell allegations against mayoral candidate and Pittsfield Co-Op VP Peter Marchetti, Co-Op president Jay Anderson, and bank VP Harry Moore.

THE PLANET has dug up the complaint of Co-Op VP Victoria May, who was fired by the bank in February. She alleges that Marchetti and the other defendant subjected her and other Co-Op female employees to a shocking harassment campaign.  May creates a picture of a workplace, she says, where the defendants watched porn in the office, drank alcohol on the job, and took part in other gross actions against her personally and other women.

This, of course, has SERIOUS implications for Marchetti’s bid to be Picklefield’s next mayor. If the allegations are true, this election is decided right now.

May accuses Marchetti of dreaming bouts, where he “flew off the handle, irrationally upset” … He began yelling, red-faced and sweating, pointing in Plaintiff’s face, calling her a bitch and other derogatory names, told her to shut up, and told her she did not know how to do things.”

THE PLANET shall be presenting full coverage beginning on Monday, when we shall publish the full text of May’s complaint. 

We have a request for comment into Marchetti and his opponent John Krol. We’re also trying to reach Anderson, Moore, and May.

We welcome your comments.

THE PLANET, caught on the lower 40 conjuring up the forces pf good to combat political evil epitomized by Marchetti endorsees, The Gang of Six.

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION OCT. 27-9, 2023) — Funny how one of the biggest stories of Campaign ’23 has come and gone, like a gang-banging flash mob raiding Tiffany’s.

THE PLANET speaks of the ARPA audit.

The story — downplayed by the woeful local daily, given more proper due by iBerkshires, and featured on THE PLANET — works on two levels. First, we have the error itself, “only” a quarter of a million of taxpayer funds. To the presently entrenched skunks, this is no big deal. Second and more deeply, we have a larger indictment of Picklefield’s lack of oversight and accountability.

Both levels coexist within and are exemplified by the entire ARPA fiasco, from the moment when the mayor nominated “the usual suspects” (“retired” scammers Deanna Ruffer and Gina Armstrong) to oversee an advisory board consisting of drinkers of Administrative Kool-Aid.

Not a good combination.

Next, to worsen the situation, the mayor kept the advisory-board deliberations S-E-C-R-E-T. We did not hear a peep from council president and mayoral candidate Peter Marchetti or from any of the six rubber stampers who have officially endorsed Marchetti’s candidacy: They be the new Gang of Six, Dumpster Earl, Porkchop Pete, Conant the Barbarian, Kave-In Kavey, Dina Climate-Change, and Tony Mofo (aka MIA Tony). Talk about Gang Grene.

Take a look at this campaign card and see if it doesn’t put you off your toast.

This kiss-butt card’s trying to bring back “slate” voting from the mummy’s tomb. As one public official told THE PLANET, “I’m glad the Gang of Six published this. It’s a handy guide to showing people who NOT to vote for.”

———- ooo ———-

Here’s the a relevant story about the first round of  ARPA giveaways:

The freeloaders, er “worthy organizations,” to receive “free” money included:

• Berkshire Black Economic Council (BBEC): $700,000 – to establish organizational operations and capacity to offer technical assistance, educational workshops, and networking sessions for Pittsfield’s black entrepreneurs and black-owned businesses. Picklefield’s grift of all grifts.

• Berkshire Immigrant Center: $80,000 – for the expansion of legal and educational services for immigrants living in Pittsfield. For “immigrants” read “illegals,” law breakers living off the Kapanskis.

• Rites of Passage & Empowerment Program: $550,000 – to increase organizational capacity and expand programs for young women of color ages 12 to 18. If you be white or Asian, forget about it. How is that not racist?

These grants, whose paperwork remains sealed in a mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall’s porch, have created jobs alright, snow jobs and con jobs.

———- ooo ———-

The $250,000 was a discrepancy between report to the Treasury Department and the city’s ledger, the responsibility for which falls with city finance director Kufflinks Kerwood and Marchetti. Each violated the city charter in not provided the reports and not scheduling a meeting to review the audit.

On this basis alone, Marchetti shows his unsuitability for mayor. As for Kufflinks, John Krol said he’s kaput should Krol be elected. As usual on most topics, Marchetti doesn’t make his position known.

“Errors happen. I get it, but there are serious red flags in all of this,” said Krol. “It is worrying that an external auditor found errors in our internal process in the accounting of ARPA funds. That’s why I’ve called for an overhaul and strengthening of the auditing process. But, what’s far more disturbing is that city leadership has not done the very basics to bring this to light. First and foremost, the administration did not share this audit with the city council back in March when the report was completed. If that’s not bad enough, the city then failed to follow the simple mandate of the city charter and hold the annual joint meeting to review this audit. This shows a serious lack of transparency, which is exactly the concern so many residents in our city have with the status quo in city hall.”

Have a great weekend, everybody.

I agree with blogger Dan Valenti about predictable Pittsfield politics’ corrupt and secretive municipal financial management that has always increased city spending by 5 percent per fiscal year going back 40 years since Proposition 2.5 became state law in the early-1980’s. Over the past 20 years, state lawmakers have severely cut state aid to local government and public school districts in Massachusetts.

Meanwhile, the fictional Massachusetts State Representative Sellout Shakedown gives away many billions of dollars in state tax breaks to the financial and corporate elites who donate special interest money to the ruling elite’s campaign coffers, which means that the greedy lobbyists – such as state pensioner and greedy lobbyist Dan Bosley – and the elites are all enriching themselves at the public trough, while local taxpayers are footing the bill – becoming poorer while the rich get richer off of the ONE (DEMOCRATIC) party state and local government.

If one thinks Pittsfield politics is corrupt and secretive, then they should look at how severely corrupt, secretive and top-down the do-nothing (but DISSERVICES) Beacon Hill lawmakers have been in recent years.

John Krol is playing the outsider card in the current 2023 mayoral race, but the truth is that he is backed by Rolodex (of Naples, Florida and Lenox) and Melissa Mazzeo (of Dalton). John Krol has failed to have proven himself as an experienced public manager of Pittsfield’s over $200 million municipal budget in return for Level 5 public schools, Pittsfield always being in the top 10 cities by population in Massachusetts for violent crime, the 15 empty storefronts on North Street’s “Social Services Alley”, the 25-year-old polluted PEDA debacle with its millions of dollars in always increasing unfunded liabilities (debts), and 50 years of population loss, along with 50 years of losses in living wage jobs in Pittsfield – a downward spiral of a shrinking tax base with increasing city spending and public debts.

As for Peter Marchetti, I believe that he hopes to be the next Mayor of Pittsfield for the 6-figure city public pension plus perks, which would be on top of his possible 6-figure pension from the bank he worked at over the past 35 years, which would be on top of his future monthly Social Security check. Talk about a local politician looking to cash in!

As for Matt Kerwood, if a would-be Mayor John Krol terminates Kufflinks’ employment as Pittsfield’s Financial Director, Matt Kerwood would then be able to collect a 6-figure city public pension plus perks for life beginning in early-2024. Matt Kerwood is paid over $114,000 per fiscal year, while Mayor Linda Tyer is paid $115,725 per fiscal year. In early-2024, Mayor LInda Tyer will begin to collect her 6-figure city public pension plus perks for life, too. Poor old fictional Mary Jane & Joe Kapanski, who pays taxes and then has to pound sand.

If you look back one year from now you will see that these six rubber stampers have endorsed EVERY single proposal set forth by Marchetti and not questioned one little thing. They have no clue what their oath of office even says. They do not seem to realize their job is represent the people whose votes they begged for. How low is that to crap on the people who trusted you?

Pete White, who is already being fitted for a new suit, and is planning on becoming council president, seems not to realize that that position is to put a CHECK on the mayor, NOT to rim his anus. Just because the last guy did it does not make it acceptable.

If you really look at all this the committee should be required to disclose all their meeting notes with their general ledger, Let’s be transparent. which our sitting mayor stated she would be a decade ago! Just like a recent article in iBerkshire, Berkshires will get grant $$. This should be rewritten as the stolen Kapanski cash has been redistributed to the friends of the current ruling class and we expect cheers with no jeers or the FBI will come to see you!!

Just read a very interesting letter written by a valedictorian who happened to have an IEP while being in school. He is very eloquent in his writings and how the comments made by John Krol comparing kids with IEP in school to “disruptors” I think was the word he said. Something to that effect anyway. He gave John an out in his last few sentences and a chance to recant what he said which was very kind and big hearted but I’m sure some the parents of children with the same IEP, including myself, know how he feels about people with special needs. I wasn’t voting for John before because I didn’t think he was qualified but now there another major reason why I would never consider it. His character.

Darren would be amazing but why would he cut his paycheck by 75% to be in a position to take crap all day everyday. This is part of the problem with the system. We all want new fresh blood but the only options are the people who are part of the. System already. Many people qualified to make big decisions and handle people and budgets this size are running their own businesses making way more money or they work for major companies and have no interest in this type of work. Change the government to be run like a business and pay the manager (mayor) the appropriate amount to run this size business($200,000,000) and see who we can attract. Of course this will never happen because the players involved won’t vote themselves out.

Interesting idea about the pay for Mayor and worth consideration. Terry Kinnas argued that the PPS Superintendent (at that time) was deliberately underpaid in order to deter competition from abroad. The School Committee rigged the bidding.

The problem I have in your idea: the Mayor is selected from Pittsfield alone – not national. I assume executives won’t immigrate to Pittsfield for the brief opportunity to run every four years. You may attract a top dollar executive living here rarely. You need one who is qualified (is in the right place and time of his life and interested) and is willing to bet his job on winning.

Also, there is no Board of Directors to fire this Mayor for poor performance, and performance is often not measured in happiness of the constituents.

AJ Enchill and Shirley Edgerton, really seized on the opportunity to shame older, liberal, white leaders in Picklefield, into gifting them free (ARPA) taxpayer money, simply by being black. No more, no less, just a black man and black woman.

Take a look at a couple of names of the secret ARPA Star Chamber about 7-8 paragraphs into the story:

AJ Enchill
Pete Marchetti

Mayor Tyer Announces First Proposals for $20M in ARPA Funds / iBerkshires.com – The Berkshires online guide to events, news and Berkshire County community information.

I posted on here before, I would like to know how AJ Enchill, who is also the “leader” of the Berkshire Black Economic Council (BBEC) awarded himself and his “company” $750,000?

Shirley Edgerton, a Picklefield Public Scohol employee, received $500,000 for her ROPES course. I looked back and saw that Shirley has had the ROPES program in Picklefield since at least 2010 (see below-1st link). There are no documented cases of any past success stories. This after at least a million dollars and then some to Shirley’s ROPES course. And by success stories, I’m talking about a college degree, being gainfully employed, or a combo of both. Getting your high school diploma or equivalency (GED) is not a success story in my book.

Shirley even got taxpayer money to recruit black teachers in North Carolina to bring back to Picklefield. To date, she attracted the same number I did, ZERO, and I didn’t even try or go to North Carolina, unlike Shirley.

About the Program | Mysite (ropeberkshires.org)

Shirley made up for her failures as a recruiter for black teachers, by taking family and friends on an all-expense paid vacation to Africa to “explore her roots.”

I’m pretty certain ARPA money was not designed or intended so people could go explore their family’s lineage on the taxpayer’s dime.

A vote for Pete Marchetti will continue the “rope-a-white-dope,” into grifting more ARPA money to the Berkshire Black Economic Grift (BBEG).

Other than fatten his bank account, has AJ Enchill and the BBEG created at least one decent paying job for a person not related or buddies with AJ?

I do remember after AJ and the BBEG received that grift of $750,000, they put on an arts and crafts fair in south county for black adult and children. Well, for those who bothered to show up.

During the arts and craft fair is where the idea of a marijuana health spa must have been born by Harmony Persip.

Two issues though with this plan:

(1) the area the BBEG had plotted for the weed spa was not zoned for commercial use (as Homer Simpson says-Doh!!)

(2) Imagine having to dispute your bill with the spa’s CEO, Harmony Persip…..

I agree 100%! My experience with Black Economic Development.
I went there about 6 months ago asking for a business loan. I asked a black girl–a secretary, if Native American would be eligible. She replied: ” I am not sure. You should ask the boss.” Then his Honor, great leader of BED appeared and asked me my ethnicity!!! I replied: ” All people are equal!”
AJ Enchill simply asked me to leave immediately.
But what if I were only half black—would I be eligible only for 50% of the loan?
If my grandpa was black–is that not good enough for loan application?

Unfortunately, they are correct in their assumption. How do you think we got here?
And it’s not so much a matter of stupidity, it’s a matter of too few people devoting enough time, effort and attention to see the lies through the propaganda along with too few people even having the ability to see through the propaganda having never been taught, by design, the learned skill of critical thought and analysis.

The ropes leader was handsomely compensated for her ubsequiousness to the secretary. How did pittsfield benefit by Edgerton’s trip to Africa to search for her familial roots. This trip was a joke and we should try to get the 500000dollars returned to the arpa account. The homeless community could greatly benefit from this money and there is also several other organizations who provide good acts of volunterism who could use this money. This giveaway by tyer to Edgerton is almost criminal in nature and this money should be returned to the residents of the city of pittsfield who are the ones that this fund was designed to help

He let the taxpayers down when they really needed him and his position of power to offset the mayor. But now he poses for a picture of him with a cute doggie so that you might forget about his abysmal history as a steward of taxpayer money. Do not fall for it.

Who should the DA investigate? I see at least 4 parties.

The Cook, The Thief, The Wife, And His Lover

The big problem for the DA are criminals rampaging all over Pittsfield, a consortium of professional panhandlers (he’s got to nail them before they unionize – then we can’t touch them), and at least two gangs of various demographics that control everything. And he is going to try to figure out what happened btw The Krol The Carver The Accountant and The Harris?? When none of them have yet to lodge a complaint???

When one of them winds up in the oven nicely glazed and seasoned Shugrue might raise an eyebrow.

Versus what I’ve witnessed for the past 8 years under the Flat Tyer/Marchetti administration, you bet your a$$ I will.

The Marchetti/Porkchop Pete administration would be as if Flat Tyer never left. That’s because she/they won’t have left. Dirty Barry will still be pulling the strings, as he does now.

Plus, the two Pete administration will give a new meaning to “backdoor deals.” Only the two Pete’s will get the backdoor pleasure. The taxpayers will continue to painfully bend over and take it.

The thumb downs with no response should open people’s eyes.

If there was a defense other than the tried and failed “missing money,” we all would have read it by now.

I ask a question of the “Krol’s a theif,” crowd, why didn’t Alan Harris go to the cops or even toss an a$$ whipping on JK and demand the cash when he didn’t pay back any of the $30,000, back in the day? It makes ZERO sense.

Call me an internet tough guy, but I will 100% guarantee I would not have let it go.

I’ve never been privy to PPP loans like you and/or a $140,000 settlement that MelMaz’s attorneys gifted you Dirty Barry.

I only hoped that you and Ms. Mayor Flat Tyer had to open your financial records for MM’s lawyers.

I’m willing to bet AJ and Shirley “repaid” the favor and then some to you both.

My question still stands Dirty Barry.

Why were you the only accountant in the US who needed a PPP loan during the Scamdemic? Did the internet not work in your home, unlike everyone else? Did you need to be at an office? Your wife sure wasn’t in her office.

Help us understand your need for the PPP Loan?

Then we’ll get into your Cumby’s parking lot security shift after.

Now to answer your post, I don’t have money to piss away like Alan does. $30,000 is A LOT of money to me. If you scammed me of that kind of coin, being civil goes out the window. I’m getting it back one way or another.

Again, I didn’t receive a PPP Loan, so $30k is a lot of money to me Dirty Barry.

Hope this answers your post.

If Krol is such a catch why has some big company not snatch him up and put his awesome talents to work? Is there a list of places he has worked for that are highly recommending him and if so could we see it please? Why does he, at his advancing age, seem to still be searching for a way to support himself? What employment record does he have that gives a true picture of his talents? I would think someone running for mayor would be able to produce that.

Marchetti is providing his even though as a politician he has been a complete failure. But he put it out there nevertheless, hoping people were too dumb to notice.

Hello Erin Leahy at Act on Mass,

Happy Halloween! The do-nothing in 2023 (but DISSERVICES) corrupt career politicians on Beacon Hill will meet in formal session until mid-November, and then it is a very long Happy Thanksgiving holiday taxpayer-funded vacation for the fictional Massachusetts State Representative Sellout Shakedown and his colleagues. It must be nice to be paid lucrative state public pay plus perks and then do-nothing all year with long vacations!

Affordable Housing is a no brainer. The components of a middle-class: Housing and healthy families, Healthcare and Public Health, Education, Living Wage Jobs, realistic pensions, disability programs, financial literacy and security for the Have Nots, Public Safety (safe streets) and welcoming communities, and the financial elites, the corporate elites, and the ruling elites ALL supporting these progressive public policies.

When one views the 1946 Christmas classic movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, one sees how George Bailey’s Building and Loans saved Bedford Falls from Pottersville’s slumlord greedy banker, Henry Potter. The Have Nots lived in Bailey Park in middle class homes. George Bailey’s legacy was to INVEST in PEOPLE and his community. 1946 is 77 years ago, which means that INVESTING in People and Communities is nothing new.

It always bothers me that when career politicians campaign for elected office, they espouse the aforementioned lofty ideals, but when “the rubber hits the road” and one looks closely at their public record, they most oftenly disregard the Have Nots, and instead, they most oftenly vote to enrich the financial, corporate and ruling elites at the public trough, while the common people have to pound sand.

Governor Maura Healey’s multi-billion-dollar bond bond bill in the name of Affordable Housing in Massachusetts over the next 5 years will be met by the do-nothing (but DISSERVICES) corrupt career politicians on Beacon Hill, who always vote down Sunshine rules reforms and laws, who vote themselves huge state public pay raises plus perks, and who give away many billions of dollars in state tax breaks per fiscal year to the Boston area big businesses who donate special interest dollars to their campaign coffers. If only “Pigs had wings and fly” would anyone believe that the Governor’s lofty bond bill become reality over the next 5 years!

I like to tell a joke, “How do you know when a politician is NOT lying?” I like to give the punchline, “When their lips are NOT moving”. Some people like to answer me, “When they are dead.”

If the career politicians in Boston were for a strong middle-class, then they would not have the nerve to brag about fiscal year 2023’s record breaking profits from the inequitable (voluntary) regressive taxation scheme that we all know and hate called the Massachusetts State Lottery SCAM! They would not operate a shakedown operation in the Boston Statehouse whereby some greedy registered lobbyists earn 7-figure incomes, while most earn 6-figure incomes representing special interests. They would not give House Speaker Ronny Mariano dictatorial-like powers that suppresses accesibility, deliberations, public hearings, and the news media from participating in democracy in the cradle of democracy: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Over my life, whenever I communicate with elected officials and bureaucrats, they always answer me that they have to function and work in reality. Well, over the past 50 years, most of our nation’s gains in income went to the top one percent of wealthy households, while the common people have received a pay raise of only $5 per week, which is only one new $1 pay raise every decade for the Have Nots. The middle class is becoming a myth due to the financial, corporate and ruling elites’ greed.

When is it going to change, Erin Leahy? I believe in your public advocacy causes to try to bring positive changes to Boston’s corrupt, secretive and top-down Statehouse. At least you are out there, Erin Leahy, fighting for the 99% of us, the Have Nots. There is nobody representing us, the Have Nots, in the government. The few that speak out are met with RETRIBUTION by the elites. Thank you, Erin Leahy at Act on Mass, for having the courage, strength, compassion and time to give the rest of us a voice in the government.

Best wishes,

Jonathan A. Melle

Remember when John Krol complained he had only 45 minutes to respond to the first article about his misappropriation of a non profits funds?

It’s been almost 45,000 minutes and he’s yet to provide evidence he didn’t. In fact the last time he sat down with the Eagle, he proved he took more than anyone originally thought.

We’ve got about 13,500 minutes until John has to try and find a new job because he’ll never be mayor.

If Peter Marchetti and/or John Krol attend, you could see them in person prior to or after the aforementioned event. You could ask them about the “breaking news” that the management of Pittsfield Co-op Bank are being sued in federal court for harassment and discrimination based on gender against former bank employee Victoria May.

All of the Berkshire area elected officials will be at the Colonial Theater in Pittsfield on Monday afternoon for you to talk to.

LITIGIOUS Pittsfield politics:

Mayor Linda Tyer’s 3rd husband multimillionaire CPA Barry Clairmont sued and recently settled his lawsuit versus Melissa Mazzeo for $140,000. He wanted her to publicly apologize to him for saying that he was in the City Clerk’s Office close to the voters’ ballots close to election day in November 2019, but she refused, so he sued and recently settled with her in 2023. So much for FREE SPEECH! Pittsfield politics other name is RETRIBUTION!

Andrea Francesco Nuciforo Junior’s Berkshire Roots is suing the City of Pittsfield for $440,000-plus. Nuciforo is essentially arguing that Mayor Linda Tyer acted in BAD FAITH with his marijuana company over Berkshire Roots’ HCAs payments to the city. The irony is that Nuciforo is the DISGRACED former FRINGE politician turned Pittsfield Pot King, NOT Mayor Linda Tyer. Nuciforo’s long disgraced public record may be used against him in the legal proceedings at the Berkshire Superior Court, which would lead to him losing his lawsuit against the City of Pittsfield.

Please click on the link and go to page 8:

https://www.cannabisandthelaw.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/14/2023/10/Berkshire-Roots-Complaint.pdf

John Krol said he may sue the named and unnamed people who accused him of embezzlement from years ago. John Krol said it was a political hit job by the Berkshire Eagle newspaper. John Krol was never afforded his day in court by his accusers. What do his accusers have to hide here? We will never know, of course. It is too easy to point the finger against John Krol without his accusers having to face due process of law whereby they would be questioned under oath, too. It is a one-sided mudslinging attack meant to bias Pittsfield voters against John Krol’s candidacy for Mayor in 2023.

Peter Marchetti is being sued as part of the management team at Pittsfield Co-op Bank in Federal Court for allegedly harassing and discriminating against former bank employee Victoria May. Peter Marchetti allegedly verbally abused the former female bank employee by allegedly calling her “a bitch”, among other allegations. If a would-be Mayor Peter Marchetti acts similarly in City Hall, then city taxpayers will pay for his alleged temper tantrums in would-be future lawsuits.

He is however, as slippery as an eel, has a demonstrated inability to hold a real job, and the allegations have enough weight behind them to get Krol locked up tomorrow. There is plenty of there, there, as the Eagle showed. As to a civil suit, you can sue a ham sandwich.

What a pathetic election we have coming up, and you wonder why taxpayers don’t bother to vote. Only in Pittsfield could this mess occur, you could not make this mess up if you tried! So basically, we have a choice of the lesser of two a-holes.

Tried to watch the CityLink roll out of all the candidates yesterday, of course once again only in Pittsfield, there was no voice coming through. Probably for the best as they are all full of bullsh**. Just like Friday night, tried to watch the recent Halloween parade, no picture or voice, did they forget to hook up the electricity on the new Tyler Street?

Not surprised at the lawsuit against Marchetti. In my very few dealing I have had with him I found him to be degrading especially towards woman. He also can’t look you in the eye while talking. Was never sure if he was afraid of woman or just looked down at them. You would think in this day and age Pittsfield Coop would have a HR diversity plan and also a policy to state that an out-of-control angered employee be forced to attend an anger management class. Just look at the hissy fits Peter has exhibited in CC meetings and recent debates, very short tempered. Also, sounds like a bank of the good ole boys. Wonder how many women have complained about Peter before Victoria? Peter stated in a recent debate that his bank had auditors find issues every year, wonder why.
