Cambridge Chronicle: City Manager ”in office too long”

“It is imperative to democracy that there is governmental oversight, especially in Cambridge where we have a strong city manager who’s been in office too long and an anemic City Council that seems to be ineffective in reining him in.”

This paragraph is the fifth paragraph the Cambridge Chronicle’s editorial on page 10 of the edition of October 20, 2011, published on line at.

The editorial is a plea to the Massachusetts Attorney General to provide disclosure of the minutes of executive sessions of the Cambridge City Council concerning the handling of the Monteiro cast. The judge’s “reprehensible” comment is featured prominently. The editorial seeks the Attorney General’s action to force disclosure “before Election day [of] details that may change the way voters think of certain sitting councilors.”

The editorial’s description of the Cambridge City Council is too kind.

The jury, judge and appeals court have found that the Cambridge City Manager destroyed the life of Malvina Monteiro in retaliation for her filing a civil rights complaint.

Monteiro fits the stench of environmental outrages.

All environmental outrages in Cambridge are coordinated by the DCR with Cambridge. There are many environmental outrages by Cambridge on its own.
