Not that I don't find the letters entertaining but can someone explain why Bob Snow keeps writing letters to the tax payers of Melrose and complaining about City government when he is no longer a Melrose resident and hasn't paid taxes in Melrose in years. It was comical that he came out against every override in Melrose on his TV show and in the newspapers but couldn't vote in Melrose because he wasn't a registered voter here, but at least he could say he was paying taxes on his "second home" in Melrose...yes, thats right, because as he was working in Somerville and living in Melrose he changed his legal residence to NH so he could beat NH taxpayers out of in-state tuition for his kids at UNH...can't make this sh*t up...but you would think that now that he has left the city entirely he would find peace and move on.
He's a busy body.
Got to love it. Let the Snow do the research for Melrose taxpayers who are either too busy or too stupid to do it for themselves. He's doing us all a service. As a Melrose taxpayer, do I want to be funding Rob Dolan's friends and supporters with a final golden parachute pension for... just ten years of part-time public service?(on my dime) as a gift for a life time of sucking up to King Robbie? I will let the Melrose tax payers answer that question... given the recent graveyard scandal involving the mayor's longtime friend, godfather, confidant and former chief of staff.
I don't care whatcha say, we'd be lucky to have Bob Snow back on the School Committee!
Perhaps the Charter Review Commission will recommend a permanent appointment on the School Committee for Snow and take the mayor off.
Because he's familiar with the habits of Melrose city government that haven't changed as much as some would like to think. What actual harm does he do, other than tick off people who could use some ticking off?
The local press does not do investigative reporting. The can't afford it. One reporter for local news is the extent of
media coverage. For better or worse, Snow fills a void.
In Snow's entire history as the town crier in Melrose he never got a fact or figure right. He makes Trump look like honest Abe. The irony of the tax payers watchdog role he takes on is that he screwed NH out of $100,000 in tuition when he fraudulently used his vacation home as his home address while his kids were at UNH..preventing him from voting in every override that he campaigned so vigorously against. The hypocrisy is awesome.
