Former Boston Mayor Menino's True Evil Nature Comes Out in Blighted Properties Video with Reporer Erin Smith.

Here is the story. This is your legacy Mr. Mayor. We know you and your cronies hate the exposure but you've earned it so we're going to give it to you good:
Mayor Thomas M. Menino has let downtown commercial landowners dodge millions in taxes by declaring their prime properties “blighted” under an arcane decades-old law — plum tax breaks three developers are scrambling to cement before the new mayor takes over, a Herald review found. These deals are drawing renewed fire from the city’s chief watchdog agency, which is asking why they still exist amid an almost unprecedented building boom that has developers falling over one another for the chance to cash in. 

“These incentives are unnecessary. I don’t think you can consider downtown Boston blighted,” said Matt Cahill, executive director at Boston Finance Commission. “The original intent was to create low-income housing in areas that developers wouldn’t normally build. The benefit is not being seen by the taxpayers as much as it did in the 1940s when the program started. 

“Unfortunately in modern times, almost the entire downtown area of Boston is considered a blighted area,” Cahill said, “and a vast amount of the developers that are getting these tax breaks don’t need the money to build.”
For more information about the Menino patterns of corruption watch these videos and educate yourself. His departure will continue to open up a can of worms as the Truth comes out. Note also that the Herald channeled our video by using the same exact spooky intro music. We are being heard. And we will continue to be heard, before City Council and all over town.
