The case of the missing city council video will not be solved any time soon following a thorough investigation by the mayor’s office, the mayor’s chief of staff Erin Deveney informed the council Monday night.
The efficacy of allowing the mayor’s office to investigate the missing video was not questioned.
The missing video from the meeting several months back detailed how Councilor Gerly Adrien was harangued and asked to resign by several of her colleagues because she refused to attend the meeting in person, among other difficulties her colleagues had with her presence on the council.
Adrien believes the attacks on her were racially motivated, a sentiment expressed by many of those who watched the proceedings that night.
The first three callers into the School Committee meeting Monday night all sounded as though they were calling from another planet, Mars or Pluto, or maybe from another universe. The fourth caller asked a question – which is really the wrong thing to do when calling in before the meeting.
Public commentary Monday night was about hearing the wind distort one caller; listening to another caller who made no sense while speeding in his car – those on Facebook Live could hear the car accelerating. A third caller mumbled and stumbled a bit and faded away into ZOOM oblivion.

It is not for School Committee (SC) members to answer the caller’s questions.
The public comment thankfully over, the meeting began.
Superintendent Priya Tahiliani revealed that school attendance is at about 95% with everyday attendance showing strength.

The courts have roundly and decisively rejected the presdent’s claims of massive fraud.
On two occasions the Supreme Court refused even to hear the president’s complaints, tossing them out without discussion or rancor or animus.
