    Reminder: Fundraiser for Thomas McCarthy tonight, Tuesday at 6:30 Firehouse Pizza Fairfield Avenue. 6:30.

  • Bob Walsh

    Typical Tommy Mac. The owner of the pizza place had a horrible attendance record while on the City Council and Tommy Mac just let it slide. He knows no shame.

  • Bob Walsh

    Fortunately for the residents of the North End, Tommy Mac is running for State Senate. Obviously he felt no need for these types of meetings when he was Council President. He just blamed it all on the SHU students.

  • Steven Auerbach

    Michelle Lyons does a great job building a relationship with SHU as well as AmyMarie Vizzo-Paniccia. We all like Tom McCarthy!

  • Frank Gyure

    HELP. I AM LOOKING FOR ANTI-McCARTHY BULLET POINTS TO DISTRIBUTE AT THE FIREHOUSE FUNDRAISER.

    • Jennifer Buchanan

      Suggest you go positive with points about your candidate, and point out the negative of the other candidate in contrast based on his voting record.

      • John Marshall Lee

        Jennifer,
        Good advice. Compare and contrast. Tom McCarthy is what happens when the machine attempts Irish apizza. Would Steve like the toppings? We can wait for the food report.

        It is kind of fun to see Tom McCarthy grooming his recent record at this point on his downhill run. It is almost as if he has lost his ‘special talents’ for communicating, not with taxpayers but with fellow Council members to do the bidding of the Mayor, rather than represent the people. As was pointed at by Bob Walsh and perhaps Lisa Parziale, when Tom goes to work on a matter it is infrequent for his view not to prevail. (Grooming the votes recently consists of making sure a matter will pass from the votes of other Council members, so an “honest” representation by those in a district can be joined with his ‘political vote.’) No harm. No foul. Honest? No. But watch what his campaign literature will tout. Time will tell.

        • Lisa Parziale

          JML, off topic, as an Italian we grew up calling pizza “apizza,” that brought back memories. Do you have some Italian in you?

    *** How about the other neighborhoods in the city and playgrounds under threat by crime and violence? Where are our council people and public safety committee neighborhood meaningless meetings? *** WHOOP ***

  • Tom White

    I don’t know if the motivation for this meeting was complaints from residents or to provide exposure for McCarthy’s campaign. Perhaps both. I found a flyer at my front door, so some effort was made to reach out to residents. Both 134th district council members have been in office over ten years. I would think they would have compiled a large contact file with e-mails to alert constituents of meetings, updates, alerts etc. Will results of this meeting be shared (assuming it was not just a complaint session)?

  • Tom White

    By the way, the link for the council member’s e-mails are only usable if you use Outlook. It is not active for users of web-based service providers that 99.9% of residents likely use.

  • Frank the Cabana Boy

    Where were the delegation members (Hennessy, Moore)? This is too easy to see through. The right thing to do is to get all community leaders involved, regardless of political alliances. It looks like a duck is a duck here. Using the current sad state of affairs to promote a candidate is politics at its ugliest. The kind that rides on the backs of public misfortune. Ugh.
