Revelations we cannot quite believe about the mayor…but they are all true
“Take off your shirt, DeMaria ordered. “I hate that shirt on you.”
– Josh Resnek reading to the mayor’s Blue Suit from an official Revere Police Report
By JOSH RESNEK
When the Blue Suit got into my Honda Fit Tuesday afternoon in Glendale Square I told him straight out, “You’re not going to believe the stuff I’m about to read your seat belt.”
“What’s this about? Tell me everything. I want to hear it. I think I know what you’re getting to. I’ve heard some things about a certain incident, but no one has ever given me details. Carlo tends not to talk about the bad stuff,” the Blue Suit said to me.
“Come on, Josh. What is it?”
“It’s about Carlo’s behavior with one of his employees as detailed in extensive police report I have about the incident,” I said to the Blue Suit.
The Blue Suit smiled.
“Come on then. Bring it on,” he said to me.
“Let me begin by telling you and our readers this is from the signed police report that led to a criminal hearing in Chelsea District Court. Here’s the story.”
Carlo requested that a female employee working at his Winthrop donut shop should report to the Revere donut shop. She thought this was strange. But she went along with it.
She reported to work at 8:30 a.m., Carlo and his aunt were present inside the donut shop. Carlo’s aunt left the store. Carlo and the employee, called Ms. Doe in the police report, were left alone inside the store.
The following is directly from the report:
“IT WAS AT THIS TIME, MR DEMARIA EMERGED FROM THE OFFICE TO THE FRONT COUNTER AND SAID TO MS DOE “I HATE THAT SHIRT ON YOU…I HATE HOW IT LOOKS ON YOU…I WANT TO CUT THE SHIRT.” MS DOE REPLIED THAT THIS WAS HER UNIFORM SHIRT AND THAT IF HE DID NOT LIKE IT’S APPEARANCE SHE WOULD TUCK IT IN BUT THAT HE COULDN’T CUT IT DOWN BECAUSE IT WAS HER ONLY SHIRT. MR DEMARIA RETURNED TO THE OFFICE AND BAKERY AREA OF THE STORE.”
The city’s chief operating officer Eric Demas is apparently the architect of the mayor’s $40,000 a year longevity payment.
Two weeks ago, the Leader Herald revealed the mayor is receiving a $40,000 yearly longevity payment when in fact the payment should be at a maximum, $10,000, according to Everett City Hall sources who wished to remain unnamed.
Candidate for mayor Fred Capone will be requesting the repeal of the longevity pay ordinance for the mayor.
“There is no justification for an additional bonus at the expense of our residents with the annual salary of the mayor more than $200,000,” Capone said.
In 2014, the city council approved a measure (Ordinance – C0032-14) allowing for all permanent full-time non-union and administrative officers to receive $1,300 for 15 years of service and $1,700 for 20 years of service.
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.
Payment to Mayor Followed Threats Against Cornelio to Cut His Office Budget and To Ruin His Life
LEADER HERALD STAFF REPORT
Everett’s City Clerk Sergio Cornelio says Mayor Carlo DeMaria stole $96,000 from him as a result of Cornelio’s sale of a property at 43 Corey Street.
“When the mayor found out what I was going to receive from the sale of the property, he told me in no uncertain terms he wanted a piece of the action,” Cornelio revealed to the Leader Herald.
Cornelio told the Leader Herald he was badgered and bothered by the mayor for the payment to the point of it affecting his health and well-being.
“I gave up against the weight of his power over me and his threats to ruin me,” he told the Leader Herald.
Before the sale, Cornelio apparently met with two well-known local developers to measure their interest in buying the property from him.
“The mayor told one developer not to touch it if he wanted to do business with the city in the future.” He told the second developer, ‘This is my score. You are to have nothing to do with Corey Street. It is mine,’” according to Cornelio.
