Unsettled Contracts Saugus Police Patrol Officers and dispatchers take their case to Town Hall

POLICE PICKETING OUTSIDE OF SAUGUS TOWN HALL: About three dozen Saugus patrolmen and dispatchers hold signs on the sidewalk at Saugus Center prior to Wednesday night’s Board of Selectmen’s meeting. Saugus Police Patrol Officers and the town’s dispatchers have been working without a contract since July 2016. They also turned out to Saugus Founder’s Day last Saturday to protest what they consider unfair dealings in union talks with Town Manager Scott Crabtree, himself CITIZEN HEROES: Ruth L.

T

own residents know Ruth L. Berg as “the lady with the hat” and “the huge heart.” Robert J. Long has spent close to half of his life in volunteer public service to his hometown – including 34 years as a Town Meeting member. Last Saturday, the town embraced Berg and Long as this year’s winners of the “Person of the Year Award” during the 37th Annual Saugus Founders Day celebration. “In Recognition to Your Dedication to the Town of Saugus This Award Truly Exemplifies the

Outstanding Ideals and Spirit of Our Founding Fathers,”reads the inscription on the plaque each received during a special ceremony at High Noon in front of Town Hall. “The Town of Saugus Salutes You … 2017,” it declares. Berg and Long are the latest of 54 Saugus residents who have been honored at Founders Day, going back to 1989 when the award originated. Since 1993, a man and a woman have received the recognition, which had been presented to male citizens during its first four years of existence. Each year, past winners meet to recommend and choose a

new recipient. Several of the past award winners sat on a wooden stage set up at the bottom of the steps at Town Hall where the presentation was made. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta, who gave the introduction to the ceremony for this year’s award presentation, told the crowd she felt honored to be sitting alongside“role models” for the town. Donna Gould – who is recognized as“The Founder of Founders Day” and a 2002 recipient of the award – read of off the list of all past winners. “I’m so happy to

ebration. The Saugus Police Patrol Officers Union circulated a onepage flyer which questioned why the town was not giving its members a fair contract while selectmen approved a lucrative contract for Crabtree. “The Town Manager himself recently received a contract and raise in which he’ll eventually be paid close to what the Mayor of the City of Boston earns,” the union said. “The men and women of the Saugus Police Patrol Officers Union are by no means asking for the size of the raise that the Town Manager received. We are simply asking for a fair increase that’s comparable to other public safety unions in town and surrounding communities. We’re just asking to be treated fairly,” the flyer said. Crabtree’s pay raise still secret Selectmen voted unanimously several weeks ago to extend Crabtree’s contract for five more years, through Aug. 2022. Details of Crabtree’s contract still haven’t been made public. Board of Selectman Chair Debra Panetta said at that time the board will not release any information until selectmen have consulted with Town Counsel John Vasapolli and a full contract is drafted and executed and signed, according to Panetta. If the union is correct in estimate of Crabtree’s new salary, he would be earning close to $200,000-a-year -- which is what the mayor of the City of Boston gets paid. The Saugus Police Department (sworn personnel) is comprised of a Chief, nine lieuten-

ants, seven sergeants and 40 patrol officers. Of the 40 Patrol Officers, 33 are assigned to Uniform Patrol and seven are assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division. The annual Saugus town report from 20 years ago (1997) shows the Police Department actually had six more patrolmen then they have on the force today. “The current starting salary for a Patrol Officer is $44,900. This is the lowest starting salary of any area Police Department and is amongst the lowest in the state for comparable departments,” the union flyer said. “Patrol Officers have left, are in the process of leaving or are actively looking to leave the Saugus Police Department because of the low compensation and benefits package currently being provided,” it continued. “The majority of Patrol Officers are currently offered NO compensation for having or obtaining a college degree. It is believed that these affected Officers are the only Town of Saugus employees to not receive some sort of compensation for education or professional development.” Police officers received no increase to their base salary between the years of 2004 and 2012, according to the Patrol Officers Union. “Nine zeros!! This is the primary reason for why we find ourselves in the situation that we’re in today,” the union said. “Both the Town and the Union are equally responsible for the current salary and benefits package that our members receive. Unfortunately, unless some-

A dozen people talk about why they look forward to attending Saugus Founders Day and what makes it such a special town event for them

A PATRIOTIC VOICE: Kimberly Tobey, a longtime custodian and crossing guard for Saugus Public Schools, has kicked of the Saugus Annual Founders Day for the past two years by singing the National Anthem during the flag raising ceremony. She is set to sing “The Ballad of the Green Berets” during Veterans and Military Appreciation Day at World Series Park tomorrow. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)

Editor’s Note: For this week, we spent five hours milling around Saugus Center near Town Hall last Saturday (Sept. 9), talking to people who were out enjoying the weather and the annual Saugus Founders Day. We interviewed young children, teenagers, middle-aged people and senior citizens. They included prominent town officials and lesser-known citizens of Saugus. We asked each one the same two questions: Why do you come to Found-

ers Day? What makes it so special for you? Some highlights of those interviews follow. Kimberly Tobey, a crossing guard at the Oaklandvale Elementary School for the past 17 years and a longtime custodian for Saugus Public Schools, has kicked off Founders Day for the past two years by singing the National Anthem. She considers her performance last Saturday during

the flag-raising ceremony as a warm-up for tomorrow when she is set to sing“The Ballad of the Green Berets” during Veterans and Military Appreciation Day at World Series Park. “This is my second Founders Day to sing the National Anthem, and it’s such an honor for me. The veterans are our foundation and we would be lost without them. “Founder’s Day is a definite chance to get together with the community and see what it has to offer. It’s a great social get-together. “I’m a real people person, so I can see where this brings out the best in town residents.” Kris Swible, treasurer of the Saugus Band Parents Association “I’m a lifer. I’m a 1985 Saugus High graduate, so I think I have been to all of them.” Olivia McPhee, member of the 2018 Saugus High School Senior Class “I’m new to the town. I moved here four years ago, but I go to it every year. And it’s a lot of fun.” James J. Connolly, vice president of environmental, health and safety for Wheelabrator Technologies “As a business in town, it’s great to see such a huge people event. And we’re happy to be a

part of this.” “All of the people around here Joe Ferraro, Saugus High look forward to this. And the kids School Football Parents Asso- have a lot of fun.” ciation, a town resident since Brandon Allison, pastor of 2003 and the father of three TrueVine Church children who are all involved in sports

Letter to the Editor

“Unconscionable Reporting”: School Committee member calls story on Open Meeting Law violations “defamatory untruths” and “yellow journalism” (Editor’s Note: This is a letter to Advocate Newspapers, Inc. Publisher and Editor James David Mitchell from Saugus School Committee Member Linda N. Gaieski taking issue with a story titled “Open Meeting Law violations,” appearing in the Sept. 1

edition of The Saugus Advocate) Dear Mr. Mitchell: Following a conversation with Jeff Mitchell, it was suggested that I write a letter to you concerning a serious issue in reporting accurate news in the Saugus Advocate.

The article in question was written by your editor, Mark Vogler, in conjunction with a story he wrote on a Saugus Public School Committee meeting on August 24, 2017, that subsequently appeared in the Advocate on September 1, 2017.

In this article, Mr. Vogler stated that after a recess in the meeting at which two school committee members and the superintendent left the room to meet in the superintendent’s office, that I joined the meeting, thereby, violating open

meeting laws. Mr. Vogler was not in attendance at the meeting; however, he was directly responsible for the recess of the meeting as the revelation of confidential emails among

~ Letter From the Editor ~

Several members of the Saugus School Committee need to take the state Open Meeting Law more seriously (Editor’s Note: This is in response to this week’s letter by School Committee Member Linda N. Gaieski) augus School Committee Member Linda N. Gaieski would do herself and the citizens of Saugus a public service by educating herself about the state Open Meeting, Public Records and Ethics laws of Massachusetts, as they relate to School Committee members. It’s clear from her recent letter that she needs to become more familiar with the way these laws work. I will address each of the points made by Committee Member Gaieski. “A serious issue in reporting accurate news in the Saugus Advocate”related to the August 24, 2017 School Committee meet-

S

ing. Ms. Gaieski says our newspaper story in the Sept. 1 edition stated that “after a recess in the meeting at which two school committee members and the superintendent left the room to meet in the superintendent’s office, that I joined the meeting, thereby, violating open meeting laws.” Our story was about apparent violations of the state Open Meeting Law. We cited two specific instances: One member’s (Elizabeth Marchese) decision to write two emails to her colleagues expressing her concerns about the hiring of James Bunnell as the new Athletic Director. We also cited School Committee Chair Jeannie Meredith’s inability to file timely minutes for executive sessions dating back for more than a year. Our story also noted the sections of the law

dealing with those apparent violations. The story also noted that the Aug. 24 meeting was interrupted by an impromptu closed door session with School Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi Jr. which “may have violated at least the spirit of the law which was enacted by the Legislature to guarantee the public’s right to know and their right to transparency in local government.” I quoted one member as saying there may have been a violation, the way the recess went down. But I never came out and called it a violation in the story, as I was unable to pin down how many members were in the meeting with the superintendent. Also, I believe it’s very important to point out that Ms. Gaieski – as were each of the five School

Committee members – had an opportunity to clarify the situation for The Saugus Advocate, but chose not to respond. Because readers wanted to know what transpired during the recess and subsequent meeting in Dr. DeRuosi’s office, we felt our readers were entitled to know who was in the meeting and what was discussed. It was clear that the discussion involved the Sounds of Saugus column in our Aug. 25 edition – particularly the heading “emails that shouldn’t have been written.” Ms. Gaieski goes on to point out “Mr. Vogler was not in attendance at the meeting; however, he was directly responsible for the recess of the meeting as the revelation of confidential emails among school committee members were printed in the Advo-

cate by him.” True, I was not at the meeting and unfortunately can’t attend many Thursday meetings because Thursday is production day for The Saugus Advocate. And I work late Wednesday nights into Thursdays, sometimes into Noon or early afternoon. But, if Ms. Gaieski were knowledgeable about the state Open Meeting and Public Records Laws, she would realize that emails – written in this case on the School Department computer system – are not confidential. And the courts have ruled that they are indeed public records. As far as the “the revelation of confidential emails” and The Saugus Advocate being “direct-

“This is my fourth year at Founders Day. It means community – getting to see the community all come together. It’s a really beautiful day.” Brendon Sullivan, Assistant Principal of Saugus High School and Supervisor/Director for Humanities of grades 6 through 12 for Saugus Public Schools “I grew up here in Saugus and I’ve probably been to most of these. I’m 38 and we moved over to Saugus when I was one. “It’s always fun because I always see current students and former students. There are some people you only see once a year – and it’s on Founders Day. These are the people I grew up with, went to elementary school and played sports with. And it’s great to be able to see some of these people again.” Ava Coppola, 10, a student at Oaklandvale Elementary School “I like going around and helping out at the St. John’s booth. I try to be here every year. I like to see my friends, go shopping at the different tables and go into the bouncing house.” Cassandra Israelson, eighth grade student at the Belmonte Middle School and a member of the

school’s Community Service Club “I t ’s really fun walk ing around with friends and doing stuff. This is the first year I helped out [Belmonte Middle School Community Service Club’s “Texas Strong … Rebuild Texas” fundraiser]. I like hanging out with my friends and buying things that help do good.” Christina Passanisi, mother of one-year-old Briella “It’s a great day to spend with the community. I love the community.” An n B o n d, a S u m m e r Street resident who walked over to Town Hall, wheeling her 11-year-old Shih Tzu, Kattie, in a baby carriage “I’ve lived in Saugus since 1965 and come here every year for the calamari. They’re delicious. It’s a great day – I get to see all of the people, the babies and the dogs. I see everybody, and I enjoy the calamari. It’s a wonderful day.” Former longtime Town Moderator Robert J. Long, one of this year’s Founders Day “Person of the Year Award” winners “It’s one big community event where everyone gets together – family, friends and a lot of people that you often don’t get a chance to see. Founders Day is all about Saugus, and it’s all about community.”

REPORTING | from page 4 school committee members were printed in the Advocate by him. At that time, an email was sent to a committee member informing her of this action. A recess was called to deal with the issue. I was unaware of what had transpired. I left the room for four minutes to use the ladies’ room and promptly returned and engaged in a conversation with Mike Gaffney of the Advertiser and others in the room. At that time the remaining two school committee members left the meeting. Mr. Vogler, again using second hand information given to him by these two school committee members and failing to fact check such, printed untruthful and defamatory information in regard to me personally, and the two members of the school committee who had left the room to meet in the superintendent’s office by alleging that the three of us had met in violation of the open meeting laws. I am asking you to remedy this situation and repair the damage done to my reputation and that of the other two school committee members, by writing a retraction to clarify the facts in this matter. I am also requesting that Mr. Vogler publicly apologize to me and the two other school commit-

tee members for his defamatory untruths at the next school committee meeting on Thursday, September 14, 2017. I would hate to think that yel-

Page 5 low journalism and muckraking would be alive and well in the Advocate, and that you would condone such unconscionable reporting. Sincerely, Linda N. Gaieski Saugus School Committee

Community rallies around Saugus mother of four who suffered stroke while driving

Saugus mother suffered a stroke last Sunday – less than a week after giving birth to her fourth child. Selectman Jennifer D’Eon asked for the town’s prayers and support at Wednesday night’s selectmen’s meeting as several groups in

the community have already begun to rally around Tiffany Mazin, 36, of 4 Williams Ave. Several town leagues – Saugus American Little League, Saugus National Little League and the Saugus Pop Warner League – have organized a corn-

to a stroke while driving home,” husband Randy Mazin wrote in a social media post on Monday. “It is currently unknown what caused it. She was still responsive yesterday, but was in ICU all day and night being kept alive by machines. This morning she was less responsive and was just sent to emergency surgery to relieve the bleeding in her brain, her third surgery in the past 24 hours. As of now, she is expected to survive, but we don’t yet know what that means. Please keep her and the kids in your thoughts,” Mazin said. Tom Whittredge, president of Saugus National Little League, appealed to town residents for support. “Her husband is trying his best to take care of the kids and helplessly stay by his wife’s side,” Whittredge wrote. “Please put yourself in his shoes. Can you imagine how incredibly overwhelmed he must feel. Please help any way you can,” he said. Sky Moulton, of Farmington, N.H., said Mazin faces a challenging road to recovery, as she remains in the intensive care unit

The veterans are going to be 100 percent with me. They believe the guy (Moulton) was representing himself as something he’s not,” he said. Moulton, who was elected in 2014, will be seeking his third two-year term next year. Hernandez said he will be running as a Republican challenger.

Educated Police Officers are going to seek employment with departments that have a desire to hire and compensate them accordingly for a degree that they have earned.” Other town employees received “large raises” The union went onto say that for the many years when the community struggled financially, patrol officers sacrificed for the betterment of the Town. “We agreed to never receive an increase in salary while the

town suffered under the belief and the promise that when the Town recovered and became financially stable, we would be able to recover together and get the salaries increased to where they belong. Well, the Town has recovered. According to recent publications, the Town’s financial condition has never been better.” The union noted that “many administrative and union employees alike have received large raises” except patrol officers. Crabtree, who is a former Saugus police officer, and selectmen didn’t respond to comments made at Wednesday night’s selectmen’s meeting by the patrol officers and a representative from Teamsters Local 25, which represents the dispatchers. Meanwhile, the Saugus Public Safety Dispatchers Center is currently staffed with only 12 dispatchers and soon will be reduced to eight or nine, according to Teamsters Local 25 Business Agent Joan C. Corey. “The Department of Labor is-

“I wish him the best success in this new and challenging role,” the town manager said in a press release issued by his office on Wednesday. On Aug. 23, Crabtree and Saugus Police Chief Domenic DiMella joined Connors, police staff, family and friends in a swearing-in ceremony at

Saugus Town Hall. Connors, who holds an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Nor th Shore Community College, has re-

ceived 10 letters of commendation for his work on the police force, according to Crabtree. They include instances in which Connors

apprehended an armed robber, caught a bank robber, negotiated with a suicidal male, and performed lifesaving CPR.

augus’s new football era started with a loss to St. Mary’s, but the team showed flashes of brilliance. The question going forward is whether new coach Anthony Nalen can turn those brief sparks into consistent spells. On the plus side, the Sachems looked miles better in their season opening 54-21 loss to St. Mary’s than they did for essentially all of last season. “I thought we played well at times, there were some spurts when we did some good things,” Nalen said in a phone interview. “When you lose by that amount there’s lots to work on. I credit the guys, who did not give up. “St. Mary’s are a tough and competitive team. That game was a good measuring stick to see what we need to do to be a good program.”

Saugus’s main catalyst was quarterback Mike Mabee. He was 25 for 33 with 220 yards and two touchdowns. Four of his missed throws were intercepted, which Nalen admits helped cost the Sachems a win. But overall, he was satisfied. “If you had told me my quarterback would go 25 for 33, I’d say he’d have a heck of a day,” Nalen said. “But St. Mary’s were very good, very sound. Every time we made a mistake they capitalized.” James Moise accrued 88 yards and two touchdowns. Christian Correia had 13 catches from 98 yards and a touchdown. The Sachems need to improve on defense, though Nalen liked the contributions from middle linebacker Rick Martinez. “He was the only one out there making plays on defense in some tough spots out

to be a cook and later at age 17, a business manager, according to his press release. “Because of his entrepreneurship, everyone at Salem High School believed that he was destined to be a restaurant owner. This cannot be said of his Harvard elitist competitor,” Hernandez said. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1979 and was stationed on the USS Independence CVA-62 attack Carrier and had multiple deployments that included ‘Gonzo Station’, the ‘Iranian Hostage Crisis’ and the ‘Lebanon Crisis. He reenlisted for four more years was was transferred to the USS Affray MSO 511 Mine Sweeper.

After a service-connected injury and Honorable Discharge, Hernandez said he returned to Salem, which he considers his hometown, then moved to New Hampshire for a short period where he worked as a school bus driver, a Mechanic for 20+buses, and then was promoted to assistant manager. In 1987, due to his servicesconnected injury, Hernandez said he became self-employed and formed a consulting business which he has continued up to the present time.

That is, I take a shot of laughter every day,” she quipped, drawing some chuckles from the audience. “I hope to be able to be 125 years old,” she said, adding “You are all invited to that birthday party.”

Back to School Night at the Vets This just in from the Veterans Memorial Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) Vice President, Stacey Guarino. The group is planning its “Back to School Night” at the Vets for next Thursday (Sept. 21), from 6:30 to 8 p.m. “We invite all the parents of the students into the school to hear what we have planned for the upcoming year,” Guarino said. “Mrs. Ragucci [Principal] will speak and then a few words from our PTO President. Parents then go up to see their child’s classroom and meet the teachers. We [The PTO] have raffles, collect dues, and also have sign-up sheets for volunteers,” she said. Curbside leaf collection commences The Town of Saugus will hold several curbside leaf collection days over the next couple of months. Residents may dispose of leaves curbside on their regularly scheduled collection day during the following upcoming weeks: Oct. 23-27, Nov. 13-17 and Dec. 4-8. Leaves should be left outside by 7 a.m. on the appropriate days. Please ensure that leaf containers are physically separated from trash and recycling. Paper leaf bags are the preferred method of leaf disposal. If using barrels, however, they must be clearly marked with yard waste stickers. Stickers, which are free, may be obtained at Inspectional Services in the lower level of Town Hall (298 Central St., Saugus). Barrel covers must remain removed so that the leaves are visible. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes, branches and brush will not be accepted. Please note that separate trucks collect the rubbish, recycling and leaves, so the leaves may be collected at a different time of day. “Missed pick-ups”will not be conducted. Please contact Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions. At the Iron Works The Saugus Iron Works National Historic site has a couple of neat programs coming up this month. Park Rangers are offering these free programs on multiple days – tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 16) and next Saturday (Sept. 23), from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.: “Saugus River Estuary Walk,”“Become a Citizen Scientist” and “The 17th Century Garden in New England.” “Join a ranger in a short walk down a nature trail as we discuss different plant and animal adaptations for living in a tidal riparian

zone,” a press release from the Iron Works notes. “Learn about some of the different plant and animal species that call the Saugus River home, and come see why it makes a great habitat for a diverse array of species. This walk will be fun for all ages, but is not stroller friendly.” The Iron Works is also offering a special river trip at $15 per person on Multiple Days – Sept. 23 and Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. “Join us on a paddle up the Saugus River and experience the River’s place in the nature, history, and community of Saugus,” according to the website. “Visitors will paddle for three hours round trip with guides to the Saugus Iron Works from Stocker Playground.” To register, email contact@PaddleBoston.com. High School students should apply Town Clerk Ellen Schena asked me to put the word out that she’s still looking for a few good men and women to work as election workers for the Nov. 7 town election. There will be two shifts – 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2 p.m. to closing. “I’m willing to be flexible with the hours,”Schena said in a recent interview. “And they can work a full day, which is about 15 hours.” Schena is looking to fill vacant poll workers’ positions at each of the 10 precincts, at about a $9-anhour rate.

too young. She said she always needs to have extra people available, in case somebody cancels their assignment on or near Election Day. “I usually get about five cancellations before the election,” Schena said.“Most people who work for us are retirees. But I’m starting to get more High School students. So this would be a good job for them – somebody who is smart, quick and has the energy. And it’s actually a good way for them to help support their community.” Letters were due to go out to about 80 to 90 people, scheduling them to work. Usually 100 to 110 are signed up to work on Election Day, Schena said. Well, if some High School students who are at least 17 and are looking to pick up a little pocket money while helping their community, go down to the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall to apply. Cub Scout Pack 62 Recruitment Cub Pack 62 is pleased to announce their annual recruiting day tomorrow (Saturday, Sept.16 from 9 to 1) in front of Saugus Town Hall on Central Street in Saugus. Cub Scouts has been expanded with a new program this year called the Lion program. The Lion program is for kindergarten age boys. The lions will work with their adult partners on many activities and will be directed by experienced, trained adult leaders. The Cub Scout program is open to boys in grades k-5. The Pack meets on Monday nights at the Cliftondale Congregational Church at 50 Essex St. in Saugus. The lions will meet from 6 to 7, and the rest of the pack will meet from 6:45 to 8 p.m. Cub Pack 62 has become one of the best run programs over the past several years. Kids and parents are kept active with weekly meetings and activities. Fortunately, there is a large gym for the scouts to play ball and other games in. Some of last year’s activities were campouts, hikes, a Museum of Science overnight, and a pinewood derby race. The team of dedicated, trained leaders and committee members always works to provide the best program there is.

there,” Nalen said of Martinez. “It was a very physical offense. He was the only one on defense that played all 11 games last year, so he knows what it takes to win a game over four quarters. He’s a mentor in the locker room.” Saugus’s next game is against North Quincy at Stackpole on Saturday at 1 p.m. Nalen is expecting another physical battle. “They’re very well coached and they’re good athletes,” said Nalen. “We need to improve on the defensive side of things – make sure we’re technically sound. We need to eliminate mistakes.”

SCHOOL | from page 4 ly responsible for the recess,”that reflects more misunderstanding on Ms. Gaieski’s part. For one thing, I question why a School Committee member participating in a meeting would be more concerned about somebody texting her about a column appearing on The Saugus Advocate Facebook Page than issues being discussed. That definitely raises the question whether School Committee members should be texting at public meetings about items that aren’t even on the agenda. Ms. Gaieski goes on to say that “a recess was called to deal with the issue.” Actually, there was no public announcement for dealing with a specific issue. She said she left to use the ladies’ room. “I was unaware of what had transpired. I left the room for four minutes to use the ladies’ room and promptly returned and engaged in a conversation with Mike Gaffney of the Advertiser and others in the room.

At that time the remaining two school committee members left the meeting. Mr. Vogler, again using second hand information given to him by these two school committee members and failing to fact check such, printed untruthful and defamatory information in regard to me personally, and the two members of the school committee who had left the room to meet in the superintendent’s office by alleging that the three of us had met in violation of the open meeting laws,” Ms. Gaieski continues. Again, it needs to be pointed out that our story reported that one member believed there may have been an Open Meeting Law violation with the recess. And we did report that if three members met in secret, it would appear to be an Open Meeting Law violation. But, I also mentioned that I was unable to determine if a quorum had assembled in Dr. DeRuosi’s office. Again, I specifically asked Ms. Gaieski and the other members in individual emails who was in

the meeting. Nobody responded. I mentioned that in my column. The important thing to keep mind is that the viewers on Saugus Cable TV wondered about this recess. And to some, it had the appearance of a possible Open Meeting-related problem. The story was about apparent violations of the State Open Meeting Law, and it includes comments from two members who expressed concerns that the law isn’t being followed by all School Committee members: specifically on emails and timely filing of minutes for Executive Sessions. It would seem that the best remedy would be for Ms. Gaieski and her colleagues who have problems with what we reported to receive additional training on these important laws, which are the foundation of all local governments throughout Massachusetts. We stand by our story. And no apology is necessary. I would never apologize for sticking up for the Open Meet-

SOUNDS | from page 18 pavement improvement projects within several areas of Town over the upcoming months in an effort to ensure that the Town’s streets are in the best possible condition. “The Department of Public Works will oversee pavement milling, overlay paving, and roadway reclamation on various main and side roadways throughout Town. The work will begin mid-September and should finish by the beginning of November, weather dependent. Parking will be limited in work zones during construction work, and traffic detours will be established as required to allow for this work to proceed.” “Ensuring the functionality and safety of the Town’s roadways is always of critical importance,” said Crabtree. “Safe roadways improve traffic flow and reduce congestion and accidents, which will benefit Town residents and visitors every day, making it easier for everyone to get to where they need to be.”

“The Town would like to thank residents in advance for their patience and cooperation during this construction project. “For more information, please contact the Department of Public Works at 781-231-4145.” We pressed the town manager’s office on more specifics: like where and when these particular projects will get underway. We received no specifics at press time. So, stay tuned.

Candidate views are welcome We’ve already had two potential challengers surface in the selectmen’s race in recent months. And we’ve run their statements as a courtesy.
