Mayor Closes Public Hearing, Tosses out Reporter and Has the Door Shut

The monthly meeting of the School Finance Review Commission Thursday night in the mayor’s conference room at city hall highlighted some of the deep divisions that exist in Everett city government.
Also highlighted is the mayor’s inability to force Everett Public Schools (EPS) Superintendent Frederick F. Foresteire and the schools to do his bidding, something Foresteire absolutely refused to do.

Encore Boston Harbor, the Everett casino-hotel project now coming to completion has been named the number one project in Massachusetts.
According to the Boston Business Journal at $1,516,000,000, this project is the largest in Massachusetts and is nearly 70% complete.
It is set to open in June, 2019.
The BBJ $1.516 million price tag for the Encore casino/hotel is a great distance away from Wynn Resorts estimates of total expenses for the development.
There is about a $1 billion discrepancy that remains largely unexplained by Wynn officials.
Suffolk Construction is the builder of the casino/hotel.

The mayor’s constant attempts to co-opt and to coerce Superintendent of Schools Fred Foresteire into seeing things the way he does and demanding that he do things without consulting him first, is bad strategy, and bad politics.
If the mayor wishes to gain concessions from Foresteire or for Foresteire to gain concessions from the mayor, they need to meet before official public meetings take place.
