Well, I’ve finally calmed down about the story in the Newburyport Daily News that almost two years after the fact, the City of Newburyport is forced to make public the e-mails of FORMER Mayor Clancy. And that this was initiated by the Newburyport Daily News.
The lady in question is no longer mayor. As far as I can tell, amazingly enough, the emails did not interfere with her performance in the Corner Office. The City two years ago rallied around her in a wonderful way (cheering her as she walked in the Yankee Homecoming Parade, surrounded by the Newburyport City Council) while other media outlets used the story to get publicity.
Frankly, the emails may now be considered public, but as far as I’m concerned, they are nobody’s business.
I can’t imagine why the Newburyport Daily News would resurrect this story except, to be cynical, to sell newspapers.
And I may disagree with Mayor John Moak on many political issues, but I just cannot imagine that this is something our present administration would want to deal with in any way.
And George Cushing, the new political consultant for the Newburyport Political Blog, is really quite puzzled as to why such an old story, which is no longer relevant, would be resurrected by the Newburyport Daily News.
Pleading with the Newburyport Daily News
to “just forget about it.”
