FBI Re-Opening Worcesster Office reported in Worceaster Telegram Newspaper. Both the Boston Regional Office and politically appointed US Attorneys have a track record of qustionable activities and do nothing investigations. Sources,witnesses, and whistleblowers be cautious.

(Worcester Telegram Posting)

I am not impressed. The Boston Regional Office has a long history of scandal from the Whitey Bulger issue coupled with the do nothing investigations of the Big Dig.

Remember,what the FBI finds, dismisses, or places in files to get dusty is controlled by revolving door Republican or Democratic temporary US Attorney Political Appointees.

I urge all potential sources, witnesses, or whistleblowers who want to report corruption, waste, fraud, and abuse to wait and see by what actions come forward.

In the meantime, contact one of the Washington based Whistleblower Groups that can be trusted for guidance. They include:

Scott Lehigh long long time reporter and promoted columnist for the Boston Globe has written that he has been fooled referencing Republican Governor Candidate Charlie Baker's CHARACTER! Imagine, it has taken decades to realize what many that have tried to hold Baker accountable for his many missteps, lack of accountability and oversight carnage of actions taken against citizens and taxpayers. Lehigh appears to have awaken?

Charlie Baker lacks any compassion or concern for the unfortunate. Look at his tenure as Assistant and Secretary of Human Services for the Develop Mentally Disabled, Public Health and Nursing Homes, and those requiring Mental health Services. Unfortunately, the reporter did not do his research. Look at the Baker era and his role at the Group Insurance Commission that he and his father who served as a model to deny healthcare for public workers that Baker carried on at his big bucks job he took after the state approved bailout of his Harvard Pilgrim. Remember, Baker got his multimillion $$$ job health Insurance job at the insurer to ply his denial of good benefits to subscribers to get profits and continue his worth many mllion $$$ in salaries and benefits for himself.

The reporter should look at Charlie Baker’s cover up of the asbestos contamination scandal and contaminators at the Saltonstall Buiilding and his mismanagement of the potential exposure after repeated incidents. Look at Baker’s initiatives of destroying the state Human Services Delivery Systems that continues today. Look at facilities in Taunton, Danvers, Northampton, Belchertown, Rutland, Glavin,Umass Hospital, Boston City Hospital, and foster care programs who instead of modernizing with accountability and providing oversight destroy that has resulted in the state being captive by unaccountable vendors, consultants, and providers. Baker was complacent and disastrous in his oversight of the financially failed Big Dig as further verification of his failed leadership.

Scott Lehigh was around for all the Charlie Baker years in state government and is only now waking up to his true unfortunate character! Lehigh has been fooled like the Republican Party in Massachusetts who had the audacity to think with no real background check they were nominating a reformer for Governor.

Lehigh should communicate immediately with the Massachusetts Republican State Committee to ask Charlie Baker to withdraw his candidacy for Governor and get a candidate with compassion, concern, care for Massachusetts Citizens and taxpayers. Failure to do so will most likely insure 4 more failed years of Governor Patrick and Assistant Governor Murray.

Cape Wind is a developer and speculators dream of a no-bid contracts.

Deval Patrick should be ashamed of himsel for supporting this no bid expensive electric rate paying project for consumers and businesses. Charlie Baker served as Secretary of Human Services and also top financial person for the state allowing billions of no-bid contracts during his tenure to vendors, providers, and consultants. How many times does the Baker role have to be documented on the Big Dig. overruns. Tim Cahill has given out billions in no bid management servfices of of state and pension monies. Jill Stein has no record and is blameles as she has not held office a yet.
Out of Touch Massachusetts Construction Union Bosses again in battle with Non Union Contractors reported in Worcester Telegram Editorial.

The issue the Telegram states is Project Labor Agreements and union-only construction contracts for public construction work in Massachusetts grossly inflate costs to taxpayers. That is a false premise as poor quality and not adhering to proper standards including cheating only creates bigger profits for contractors.

OK, now the real facts on so called alleged Project Labor Agreements.

The issue should be is quality in Construction, Oversight, and Accountability in Public Works Construction.

Republican President Herbert Hoover enacted the Federal Davis Bacon Act for Federal Projects and Masschusetts enacted a state version years earlier to prevent shoody construction of taxpayer projects by assuring the right qualified craft persons were doing the work.

The Massachusetts System worked well until the Worcester Telegram mentioned both Building Trades Union Head Frank Callahan and Edward Collins of the Electrical Workers Union major players who knowingly allowed enforcement and lack of inspections of Construction Sites to diminish. They were both out front to destroy the Secretariat of labor in 1993 as well a s being silent to the cries to get succeeding Democrat Attorney Generals to enforce these laws shortchanging both their members and taxpayers.

The height of this problems also brings in Carpenter Union Boss Mark Erlich whose members reportedly suffer a 25% unemployment rate despite paying high dues to their leadership. The Carpenters had its Worcester Union Building Roof refurbished without Union Roofers that caused other unions to picket with a big inflated 'Rat Doll' out front.

The unions and their Democrat Attorney General endorsees with the legislature are the culprits for the issue of quality in Public Works Construction to be in the shape it is today.....From the Big Dig to School construction under both Democratic and Republican Governor Administrations.

Project Labor Agreements are wrong. The only way to insure quality and fairness to all is to enforce existing Construction Laws for both Union and Non union contractors insuring a level playing field for legitimate hones contractors and workers. The Union Bosses should take responsibility for the current failure as the only way to stop shoddy workmanship and contractor cheating. Also, Contractors can sign agreements with the Carpenters Union only leaving other trades out and the Carpenter Union members will work along side non union sub-contractors and workers.

I challenge the Telegram and Union bosses to correct the mess and stop misinforming the readers, workers, and taxpayers.
