In 1997 an Everett fireman with 10 years of service was convicted of A&B of a child under the age of 14 and his sentence was «suspended» & he was placed on the sex offender list for 15 years. The City of Everett, MA did nothing; they allowed him to continue working as a firefighter for the next 17 years. Last year, the same person drugged & raped me (5 years after the sex offender listing expired). The City will not answer as to why they allowed a sex offender to work as a firefighter, a public position of trust. How many other sex offenders are working in positions of trust in this City?
The reports coming out of Las Vegas reveal that Wynn Resorts is relieved with its $20 million fine that has ended, for the time being, its difficulties with the Nevada Gaming Commission.
The commission’s 4-0 vote to order the company to pay a record fine ended a chapter indicating the company was aware, and admitted to being aware, of sexual harassment allegations against company founder Steve Wynn.
But the saga for the company is far from over.
Here in Everett, where the Wynn project is nearing completion, there remains the caveat that Wynn does not yet have a gaming license.
That was put on hold last year when the Steve Wynn story played out nationally in
a well written and documented investigative report by the Wall Street Journal.
A Steve Wynn law suit attempting to stop the release of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s long awaited report on Wynn’s suitability is expected out sometime in April.
Councilor Michael McLaughlin’s laudable attempt to get to the bottom of the difficulties both past and present facing the city’s out of control Wellness Center was met by derision and hostility by Dr. Omar Easy, Human Resources Director Lara Wehbe Ammour, and City Solicitor Colleen Mejia.
Watching the show and approving of it was the mayor.
Personnel matters can’t be discussed, they all said in their own inimitable way, while at the same time evading any responsibility for the goings on at the troubled Wellness Center.
One official yelled at McLaughlin and said she had offered to allow him to answer written out questions that he presented to her.
An employee who left her job at the Wellness Center recently said she was mistreated, retaliated against, picked on, insulted and made to feel uncomfortable by her superiors for months until she was forced to leave.
“The place is out of control,” she told the Leader Herald.
She asked that her name be withheld for fear of retaliation.
She said she informed the mayor of the problems and Dr. Omar Easy. She said she
reached out to both the mayor and Easy, and to the head of human resources as well.
She said she told them all what she was experiencing and asked them to make things right at the Wellness Center.
