After taking $96k from city clerk in real estate deal
By JOSH RESNEK
The mayor and his cabal of relatives and hired guns are plotting to have City Clerk Sergio Cornelio removed from his office.
Cornelio’s election as the president of the City Clerk’s Association of Massachusetts – an award given for only the most outstanding clerk – will not mitigate the mayor’s effort to have Cornelio removed.
The effort is already underway, according to a wide variety of sources.
The mayor and his closest supporters and the holders of his secrets claim Cornelio is a traitor, that “he has left the nest,” by coming out publicly in order to recover the $96,000 the mayor recently took from him.
It was revealed last week that Cornelio was forced and coerced to pay the mayor $96,000 as a result of the sale of Cornelio’s wholly-owned property on Corey Street.
Until the time of the sale of the property by Cornelio, the mayor had no legal ownership interest in the Corey Street property, according to records on file in the Southern Middlesex Registry of Deeds.
Two local developers were told to stand aside by the mayor when they expressed an interest in buying the property from the city clerk, sources said.Continue reading “Mayor moves to oust Cornelio”
