The Mayors attack Letter against the 5 City Councilors over a budget issue is still on the Site which is I believe a clear ethics violation. If that disappears I’d have no qualms with the site. It is an interesting and positive showcase for city activities by the Mayor’s Aide.
I do wonder why the Mayor didn’t Post the attack letter himself on his own BLOG on HIS Website He even has a From the Mayors Office Tab on the Site he could have used or his Facebook Page that he uses to reach his followers.
Unlike Councilor Elliot who shut down his personal site, the Mayor seems to be running many different sites to showcase himself. One under the guise that it isn’t an official city blog when in reality it is and should be,much like the City Manager’s Blog.
Mr. Jack over on LIL seems to think that Councilor Elliot has control over the SUN which is a joke or that I who championed Councilor Murphy for Mayor have taken a different agenda.
My agenda is and always will be MY BLOG – MY View (I changed the tag line to rile Jack which I seemed to have done LMAO) and NO blind loyalty. I disagree with anyone on any day depending on the issue.
Mayor Murphy should remember that under the Plan E Charter which he has sworn to uphold and follow that he is really NO different and has no policy making powers or ability to start initiatives than his fellow Councilors or School Committee members. (Bold Mine)
Section 100. The mayor shall be recognized as the official head of the city for all ceremonial purposes and shall be recognized by the courts for the purpose of serving civil process and by the governor for military purposes. In time of public danger or emergency, as determined by the city council, he may, with its consent, take command of the police, maintain order and enforce the laws; and he shall have all the authority and powers conferred upon mayors by sections eighteen and nineteen of chapter thirty-three. He shall be chairman of the city council and chairman of the school committee. have no power to veto but shall have the same powers as any other member of either such body to vote upon all measures coming before it
