07/24/14     What Happens When You Attempt to Ask a Public Question of Former BOS Secretary Jean McCaughey on How Her Own Assistant Was Also Allegedly Sexually Assaulted Inside Your Own Shepard Municipal Building (and by a totally different alleged suspect)???  You ask the question, "What do you know about your own assistant getting allegedly sexually assaulted?" and then you hear "I'm done talking. Don't call here again or I'll call the police." and then you get hung up on!  So I guess this helps confirm the Town of Warren has some past history of alleged sexual assault crimes being committed during business hours, and again where are any law enforcement investigations?  Why did the same three (3) individuals on the Board of Selectmen allow this to happen to another municipal employee - again?

06/12/14     Board of Selectmen (i.e. Robert Downing, David Delanski, Bob Lavash & Lorena Prokop) and Town Counsel Patricia Cantor blatantly IGNORE official request to fix & resolve their own public corruption matters -or- receive 2 dozen complaints, followed by a residents' class-action lawsuit against themselves.  They choose to be sued by their own residents, go figure!

{ Version} E-mail to Board of Selectmen & Town Counsel Patricia Cantor.  On Tuesday, April 1 was a BOS meeting that night.  The printed e-mail was on Mr. Downing's 3-ring binder of meeting documents, so it's proof the Town received it.

05/08/14     "East Brookfield Crooked Court" WITH allegedly corrupt State Employee Elizabeth M. Maunsell

{ Version} "Show Cause Hearing" transcript for Brian Corriveau (Thursday, May 8, 2014 @ 9:30am).

Warren Police Officer C. Scott Romani arrived about 9:15am.  At 9:23am Clerk-Magistrate Elizabeth Maunsell took Officer Romani into the "hearing room" and closed the door, obviously needing to chat, plot & plan what to do for Brian Corriveau.  The door finally opened at 10:02am and officer Romani started calling names of those waiting on the wooden benches.  Mr. Corriveau was just about the 2nd to last person to be called to enter at 10:20am, and he exited at 10:30am.  So everything in the above transcript was in under 10 minutes.  She admitted Mr. Corriveau could provide any evidence, and within 5 minutes or less said he was "guilty", after Warren Police Officer Romani answered under oath "YES" to the Town's nine witnesses against Brian CorriveauOoh and Ms. Maunsell already had the date & time for Brian's arraignment court date - all prepared in advance, go figure!

Chief Spiewakowski's loyal ass-kisser follower, Sgt. Joseph R. LaFlower is factually quoted in Officer Romani's testimoney, "..... Sergeant LaFlower was assigned to be on duty at the selectmen's meeting per Chief Spiewakowski."

05/01/14     MassLive.com - Warren Forum.  Warren resident Jim Gagner posts in a public forum about Michael Baril.

http://www.masslive.com/forums/warren/                        Warren: news, views, and events around Warren, MA.

On 4/28/14 username "jimgagner", alleged Warren resident James A. Gagner Jr., 51 School St., Warren, allegedly posted a reply to a current thread called "Who's Moderating?" which was posted by username "ConcernedDebateWatcher" on 4/28/14.

{ Version} Username "jimgagner" posted the following:

Message Title:  " OK ConcernedDebateWatcher aka Mike Burrill ".

Message:  " You don't live in town & have no vote.  You disrupt Selectman meetings regularly taking time away from the voting public.  You troll the corridors of our town hall on a regular basis trying to stir up whatever it is you try to stir up.  Your agenda has no place here.  Please keep it elsewhere. "

On 4/28 & 4/29 Mr. Baril received a few phone calls from Warren residents informing him that someone posted some rude comments personally directed at him and wanted him to be aware.  One of the calls was a Warren resident who knows James Gagner and she gave him his cellular phone number.  On Tue, 4/29 at 11:21am Mr. Baril called Mr. Gagner's cellular phone 413-218-1465  {Phone call to Jim Gagner}.  It rang, no answer & Mr. Baril left a voice mail introducing himself & also stated he had equal rights as any other taxpayer, etc.

Mr. Baril attended the candidates night public hearing, and when Mr. Baril walked into the Selectmen's meeting room and observed residents sitting down, he saw a gentleman wearing Warren Fire Department clothing, saying fire fighter and the name James Gagner below.  Mr. Baril was not expecting to run in to Mr. Gagner there.  After the meeting ended, in the hallway Mr. Baril introduced himself to Mr. Gagner and asked if he got his voice mail message.  He replied yes he did.  After a second of silence, Mr. Baril asked him if he had any questions for him, and he replied I'm sorry for the post and we are all set now and he exited the building.

{ Version} On 5/01 username "jimgagner" posted a 2nd item directed at Michael Baril, now referring to him as "Mickey Mouth":

Message Title:  " Mickey Mouth is at it again ".

Message:  ( the masslive.com post previously existed, but masslive.com has since erased it ).  Mr. Baril had in fact read Mr. Gagner's 2nd new alleged rant.


Timeline: Magic Tricks (disappearing posts) in the Warren Forum (various times of day view):

5/01 @ 10:22am - view of Warren forum:  { Version}.  Post # " 1006. Town Officials CAUGHT Stealing Elections Signs" is there.  

5/01 @ 10:32am - view of Warren forum:  { Version}.  Less than 10 minutes later the above post has mysteriously disappeared from the website?  The most recent item is now post # " 1005.  Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery... "  So which Warren public official called masslive.com and asked them to delete it?  I'm sure masslive.com didn't erase it on their own free will.  Like most residents know, the Town needs to control what the general public hears & sees, that is why Warren has so many hidden dark secrets.

5/01 @ 6:11pm - view of Warren forum:  { Version}.  You'll notice post # 1006. Town Officials CAUGHT Stealing Elections Signs..  by CorruptionDetective, 04/30/14 12:02 PM <NEW>  has completely disappeared !!!!!  At 1:46pm someone else posted a new thread topic and look, that is now post # 1006.  " 1006.  Patrick road ".  So the original post was deleted, permanently erased, and masslive.com offers no explanation as to why?  Alleged corruption & manipulation I guess...

5/01 @ 7:20pm - view of Warren forum:  { Version}.  Two new posts about " Signs in dumpster " - so the former deleted thread has come back to life.  Usernames "jadeona1", 05/01/14 @ 5:52pm & username "CorruptionDetective", 05/01/14 @ 7:15pm.  Click above to read the two new posts.

04/29/14     Candidates Night {Tuesday at 7pm}.  Candidates for the upcoming May 2014 election.

{ Version} Town's Public Hearing Notice (7pm).

Video Recording Note:  We apologize for poor camera angle.  You can blame Chairman Robert Downing for this.  He verbally complained one day when Mr. Baril came to the next following BOS meeting.  He was denied the usual spot for the camera, was cussed at for sometimes using the Town's AC outlet to keep the battery charged, and further berated by being told he should pay back the electricity costs.  Mr. Baril was denied in moving the camera to any suggested spot, and was told to put the camera on a seat in the audience, which intentionally makes the camera angle suck.  Unfortunately even though the camera had a fully charged battery, it died like 5 minutes before the adjournment of the meeting (video length = 1 hr; 15 min; 34 sec).

 

Educational Facts / Highlights / Public Knowledge:

The Board of Selectmen appointed Donald G. Nickerson, 436 Old West Brookfield Rd., Warren, to be the moderator.

This is the same gentleman that interrupted the 3/18 BOS meeting & then started a verbal altercation with candidate Brian Corriveau.  Wait - Mr. Nickerson was the one that was "applauded & thanked" by Chairman Robert Downing for yelling & swearing at Mr. Corriveau.  Amazing how Chairman Downing picked an alleged "biased" resident to be the moderator & also assigned Mr. Corriveau's seat right next to Mr. Nickerson!  Go figure...

 

==============================================================================================================

 

04/xx/14     A Warren Resident Came Forward Submitting Evidence of {that Selectmen}.  This person was driving into the town dump when {he} was removing signs & caught placing them into the trunk of his car.  The signs removed were of Brian Corriveau & Mary Obartuck-Bellerose, but leaving Dario Nardi's signs there, as the evidence proves.  The witness went to leave the dump and saw below {picture #1}, and took pictures.  So here is more new evidence coming forward against the Town of election tampering.

Town Dump, South St. and Other Town Owned Land

04/22/14     Warren Municipal Employees Caught Stealing Elections Signs of:  Brian Corriveau & Mary Obartuck-Bellerose

Alleged Theft Suspects: 1 police dept employee, 1 Shepard Municipal building employee ordered by police employee & 2 unethical BOS members; all soon to be named publicly!!!!!

Allegedly not one Dario Nardi sign was Stolen; just the other 2 candidates running for Selectmen!  What does that tell you about the Town of Warren election fraud/corruption problems.?.  Town officials don't want Mr. Corriveau or Ms. Obartuck-Bellerose to win - that's why!

Trash Dumpster @ Shepard Municipal Building, 48 High St.

Tuesday, 4/22/14

 

         

         

         

         


Solo (above) photo taken by Michael Baril Tue, 4/22/14 at 4:05pm, after Mr. Corriveau had already come to grab his signs from the Shepard Building's trash dumpster.  Ms. Obartuck-Bellerose also arrived to grab her signs as well.  No one from the Town notified Mr. Corriveau or Ms. Obartuck-Bellerose of these signs.  It was a Warren resident that visited the Shepard Building, and noticed all the signs, then placed a phone call to Mr. Corriveau telling him of this!

 

==============================================================================================================

 

04/01/14     E-Mail to the Board of Selectmen & Town Counsel Patricia Cantor; No Reply.  Again, Welcome to Warren's One-Way Government.

{ Version} Citizen Michael Baril tried to communicate to the Board using the Town's e-mail.  Mr. Baril was told they got the e-mail, but didn't seem to give a hoot to care about being civilly sued.  The elected officials are supposed to work for the Town's citizens.  Nope, here they suck.

Educational Facts / Highlights / Public Knowledge:

Agenda item:  " 6.  Discussion/Response to Open Meeting Law Complaint ".  Starts at 0:22:07 (22min; 7sec).

At 0:22:54 Chairman Downing starts reading a document and then publicly states, "Nope.  That's not it."  At 0:23:19 Mr. Lavash hands over his 3-ring binder to Mr. Downing, which he starts reading that document.  Mr. Downing publicly states, "....Mr. Baril filed with the Board of Ethics..."  FYI: Open meeting law violation complaints are filed to the Town & Office of the Attorney General.

At 0:23:27 Chairman Downing publicly states, "When we get those, we turn them right over to our legal counsel."

At 0:23:59 Chairman Downing publicly reads the prepared statement.  At 0:24:07 when Mr. Baril tells Mr. Downing, "This copy" Mr. Lavash freaks out and asks, "Where did you get it?".  Mr. Baril replies, "The post office."

At 0:27:36 Mr. Baril goes to respond back (when Downing just stated "correct me if I'm wrong Mr. Baril") and then he publicly replies, "No. You can't speak.  You are not on the agenda."  Mr. Baril publicly demonstrates Chairman Downing was not being truthful as he lays out the details of his conversation with him a few days ago, where he allegedly blamed two other individuals.

At 0:29:26 Chairman Downing then publicly states legal counsel wrote the letter, and they are to blame!

{ Version} Mr. Baril's factual evidence disputing Chairman Downing's public comments.  USPS postmarked 1/21 & Town signed for 1/23 12:33pm.

As a Warren resident - who do you believe now?  The creditability of Mr. Baril's testimony, the Town's legal counsel, or your own Board of Selectmen?

02/08/14     Public Records: Warren Police Harassment Towards Michael Baril

{ Version} 10/07/09 Chief Bruce Spiewakowski bans a citizen from the Town's own police station, which is a public building.  Mr. Baril shares his Chief Spiewakowski harassment with other Warren residents and they don't seem to believe it.  Well here is the Warren Police log entry proving your police chief screws over it own citizens.

{ Version} 12/19/08 Dispatcher Lisa Pensinger reports from Officer Mark Chase a "suspicious auto" on Old West Brookfield Rd.  This is a prime example of your police employees falsifying police records in your police computer system.  This particular day Mr. Baril saw Officer Chase on a traffic detail on Old West Brookfield Rd. and stopped to talk to him, getting his thoughts on the non-profit bringing potential for-profit businesses to town, which would benefit the officers having more police details.  So apparently Officer Chase notified Dispatcher Pensinger of his conversation with Mr. Baril, but the police log entry demonstrates something different - Officer Chase having a "suspicious auto".  So did Officer Chase give false details to police dispatch or was is Dispatcher Pensinger that data entered false details?  But wait - the log entry demonstrates that the data was modified by "Bruce Spiewakowski".  Maybe your own police chief is to blame?  Either way - someone's allegedly corrupt !!

01/28/14     Nancy Lowell called Warren Police on a citizen buying a street listing book?  Yep, more wasting of your tax dollars and she has the nerve to snitch your personal business to Warren Police, which in turn gets documented in their police log!  Second, she is also documented in town public records calling Warren Police on resident Brian Corriveau as well.  Now that she has been caught allegedly ratting out & allegedly snitching on two citizens they (i.e. town employees) allegedly personally don't like - how many other Warren residents are victims and don't even know it?  Yikes....

{ Version} Warren Police log entry on Nancy Lowell, a copy of Mr. Baril's $10.00 check payable to Town of Warren, Nancy's receipt of payment received, and the street listing book purchased.

On Tuesday, 1/28/14 at 11:42am Warren Town Clerk Nancy Lowell is logged calling Warren Police.  Warren Police dispatcher Lisa Pensinger data entered "suspicious male at the municipal office building".  Upon listening to this audio recording, Nancy publicly stated, "Michael Baril is in the building, no fighting going on right now, but he just left my office and he bought a street list book, which made me nervous..." and then she publicly asks for the police to "intimidate" Mr. Baril by walking through the building.  Nancy immediately stated the individual's name/identity, so why does the police log entry contain false info?  So why do Warren Police officers allegedly take orders from Town Clerk Nancy Lowell?  How many Warren municipal employees working in the municipal office building are also allegedly corrupt?  The answer is - one is too many....

Town employees, including the Chief of Police, have no right to:  a) share your personal business on why you are visiting (i.e. paying your tax bill, asking questions about town items, purchasing something, etc),  b) inform the police when you are inside visiting,  c) ask the police to perform a search of the building to come find you,  and d) Chief of police has no right to intimidate or interfere while a Warren resident is engaged in official business/duties with the Town Clerk in that Chief requests your resident to withdraw his own recall petition?

So this is what town hall employees do?  Report what you buy from the town, discuss when you pay your tax bills, report what you do in town hall - they call the police and share your personal business with Warren Police - so they can log it in the police computerWhat a great way to serve your residentsEmployees violating your civil rights in visiting your own public building!  Your taxpayer money being used to harass citizens & residents acting with childish behavior.  Two Warren Police officers (Detective Mark Chase & Officer Gerald Millette) spent ~20 minutes looking for a male who purchased a street listing book?

01/25/14     Stephen J. Delanski, brother of Selectmen David A. Delanski, Harassed & Violated A Citizen's Civil Rights.  Warren Police Public Records {call number 14-593}

{ Version} On Saturday, 1/25/14 at approximately 10:15am in front of the West Warren Post Office, a gentleman later identified by a Town resident as David Delanski's brother, Stephen, attempted to tell a citizen that is was against the law to stand on a public sidewalk holding a petition.  Mr. Delanski became irate when he saw his brother's name on the paperwork and ordered the citizen to immediately leave the sidewalk (even though he told Mr. Delanski he had verbal permission from the post office employee) or the police would come and arrest him.  Mr. Delanski kept ordering him to leave the public sidewalk, move down 100 feet, then 200 feet, and then it changed to 2,000 feet, etc.  The citizen stood his ground and was proud enough to use technology in his cell phone to take his picture  {picture 1}  and  {picture 2}  and video/audio his behavior.  No citizen has the right to be harassed or intimidated by a relative of a Town public official.  Everyone has a right of freedom of speech and their own opinion.
