“Carlo is taking over the public schools. Everything is set in motion. He’s got 8 votes on the School Committee. This is his piece de resistance, the takeover, control and the manipulation of the school department. He’s smacking his lips, smoking a victory cigar and the fight hasn’t even begun.”
– The mayor’s Blue Suit Speaking with Josh Resnek
By JOSH RESNEK with THE BLUE SUIT
I picked up the Blue suit at the end of Elm Street Tuesday afternoon.
“Hey, let’s get out of town for an hour and talk,” the Blue Suit suggested.
“Where do you want to go?” I asked him.
“There’s a place over in Malden where Carlo goes for private meetings when he doesn’t want to be seen.”
“What is it called and where is it located?” I asked.
“It’s called the Bistro. It’s on Exchange Street,” the Blue Suit answered.
So we drove over to Malden in my red Honda.
We ended up at the Bistro. I parked. We got out of the car. We walked inside.
‘I’d like a table in the back room if it isn’t being used,” the Blue Suit asked the concierge. “We’re looking for some privacy,” her added.
“Of course. Right this way,” the concierge answered.
I thought I caught him looking at the Blue Suit strangely. “May I have your name, sir,”
he asked the Blue Suit.
“I am the Blue Suit,” he told the concierge.
The concierge looked a bit taken aback.
“Are you Carlo DerMaria’s Blue Suit?” the concierge asked. “Yes, I am.”
