Massachusetts Fourth District Congressman Joseph Kennedy III will be in Newton Tuesday Night at 7pm as the Massachusetts Democratic Party tries to pick up the pieces with a Grassroots Meeting among party members.

Correia v Council


On the Friday Edition of ''The Sixth Floor'', Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II alleged that three Fall River City Council Members--Rich Cabeceiras, Pam Lailiberte Lebeau and Cliff Ponte--were ''obstructionists'' who were attempting to block aspects of the Sixth Floor's Agenda. 

 

Cabeceiras told WSAR that he was pleased the issue came to light, alleging that Correia used name calling and other tactics during private sessions with council members.

Lailberte-Lebeau expressed disappointment in what she heard, saying her request to table a request to transfer $30,000 from one line item to another in the mayor's office was simply away to obtain more information about how the money would be utilized. 

Correia told WSAR that he felt that changes needed to be made to the nine member lineup of council during the current municipal election cycle.

The Case For a New BMC Durfee Building


Fall River Mayor and School Committee Chair Jasiel Correia II is hopeful that a debt exclusion vote may not be needed in terms of the city's financial share of a proposed new BMC Durfee High School, which could begin construction, if everything is approved regarding local and MSBA Financing, in late 2018. 
 
A current Fall River City Ordinance regarding a public vote on any bonding over five million dollars is a potential roadblock that Correia wants adjusted, saying that the city could afford its share of a new Durfee building, and could use bonding rather than a debt exclusion vote as has been proposed. 
 
Correia made the comments during a Monday Night School Committee Meeting at Morton Middle School; the discussion is part of the video on WSAR's Facebook page. 

Correia also says that prior discussions of Fall River perhaps being headed toward receivership were incorrect, according to information he has gathered from Commonwealth Financial Administrators. 
 
COO of the School Department, Ken Pacheco, indicated that the MSBA might consider other Fall River sites, while looking at how to incorporate the current auditorium, pool and fieldhouse into the design.

FR City Council Tonight


The nine member Fall River City Council meets tonight for the first time in 2017 to elect a President and Vice President; WSAR has learned that current Council President Shawn Cadime and Vice President Linda Pereria will likely be returned to their respective posts.

Council will also hear about an issue in the Buildings and Grounds Department that began with an internal email, obtained by WSAR, alleging that Interim Director Peter Gallagher directed employees to submit overtime for a pair of School Department Projects, instead of the municipal items that were being worked on. 

Local Architect Jo Ann Bentley will also appear before Council tonight in order to explain her role in the Pine Street Veterans Building issue, after her name came up during discussions in December on the issue of rehabbing the building. 

Council will also get a summary of the current municipal budget as it enters the second half of fiscal year 2018.

Warren Signs on to Legislation Aimed at The President Elect


Democratic members of Congress introduced the Presidential Conflicts of Interest Act of 2017 in the United States Senate and House that would require the President and Vice President to disclose and divest any potential financial conflicts of interest. It also would require presidential appointees to recuse themselves from any specific matters involving the President's financial conflicts of interest that come before members of the executive branch of government. Members of the House and Senate  have consistently asked for more transparency and accountability from President-elect Trump. 
 
Massachusetts Senior Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren is one of several co sponsors of the legislation in the Senate. 
 
In November, Democratic senators filed a Resolution stating the Senate's expectation that President-elect Trump needs to decisively and transparently divest all of his business interests and holdings and completely sever his affiliation with the Trump Organization to avoid any actual or perceived conflicts with the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which prohibits the president from accepting gifts or benefits from foreign governmental actors.
