Middleboro BOS Ignoring Verbal Abuse

Once upon a time, Allin Frawley went into a temper tantrum against a local used car dealer, ignoring advice of Town Counsel...anyone remember?

At that time, the business owner's attorney attempted to reason that some of the vehicles counted were not for sale, were registered vehicles, were customers' cars or were not on the business's property.

Never let reason and common sense intrude in Mr. Frawley's outrageous outbursts and insults.

There have been other instances in which Mr. Frawley's behavior has been equally outrageous.

Mr. Frawley seems to have a personality conflict with others, fueled from outside the meetings....yeah! town gossip! easily recognize from the over-sized reactions.

A group of volunteers has dedicated their time to promoting Middleboro's Tourism, collected statistics about their success of drawing folks to Town events to spend their money.

Is Mr. Frawley jealous of their success? He does seem to have a problem that goes beyond FACTS and ACTIONS.

The rest of the Board of Selectmen sat comment to calm the situation. Enablers of Verbal Abuse?

At what point do you speak up?

At what point does the balance of the Board of Selectmen acknowledge that YOU have a problem?
Maybe it's time for Anger Management Classes or some counseling to control Mr. Frawley's temper.

Mr. Frawley failed in his attempt to run for State Rep. for which we can be appreciative.

Cop sent to keep peace after Middleboro selectmen swap barbs

Police Chief Joseph Perkins said he received several phone calls from residents who were concerned because the selectmen’s meeting “was getting heated,” and suggested he send a police officer to the meeting.
MIDDLEBORO – A police officer was dispatched to the selectmen’s meeting Monday night following a heated discussion between Selectmen Chairman Allin Frawley and Selectmen Leilani Dalpe regarding violation of state building codes at the Oliver Estate, 455 Plymouth Street.
The discussion came at the end of the meeting and centered on an agenda item “Oliver Estate Business” in which selectmen continued a discussion from last week on bringing the estate up to code including fire emergency and building code issues.
Police Chief Joseph Perkins, who is vacationing out of state, told The Enterprise that he received several phone calls from residents who were concerned because the selectmen’s meeting “was getting heated,” and suggested he send a police officer to the meeting.
Perkins sent the shift supervisor, Lt. Todd Bazarewsky, to the meeting. Bazarewsky reported that “there was no incident” after he arrived.
Last week Fire Chief Lance Benjamino recommended ghost tours at the house stop until the house is brought up to code. Benjamino said he would allow tours if a fire fighter were hired to serve as a “fire watch”.
Items which need to be brought up to code include two or more exit signs with attached emergency lighting, key box for fire department accessibility, and remotely monitored fire systems.
When it became clear the building would not be brought up to code this week, for an event that is being held, Dalpe, chairman of the Oliver Estate Advisory Committee, said they would hold the event and provide a ‘fire watch’ at a cost of about $500.
The discussion became heated when Frawley responded, “I think the route of the problem is on May 22 you (Dalpe) assured this board we were in complete code compliance and we were above code compliance, and you stated as a licensed builder you attested to this with the building inspector, all of that is completely false. You are not a licensed builder, your license is null and void and has been for over a year.”
Dalpe responded that she had been “a licensed builder for years” but had not renewed her license. “That’s a moot point,” she told Frawley. Dalpe said the building was in compliance until last week when the fire chief recommended it no longer be coded as a residential building.
Dalpe, who was seated next to Frawley, stood and threatened to leave the meeting after Frawley said to her “You lied about being a licensed builder.”
“Don’t you dare call me a liar. Mr. Frawley, I have had it with you,” said Dalpe who pounded her fist on the table. During the 15-minute heated discussion, Frawley continued to repeatedly call Dalpe a liar.
Vice Chairman Stephen McKinnon, who sat quietly along with the other selectmen during the exchange, said, “I suggest we move forward and stop the accusations between you both.”
Glenn Montapert, spouse of Dalpe and member of the Tourism Committee, addressed the selectmen and accused Frawley of sexual harassment.
“This town has an harassment policy and you are violating that,” said Montapert
“I would disagree,” said Frawley.
Montapert then asked Frawley to place an agenda item at the next selectmen’s meeting, “for you to be removed as chairman of the board and for someone else to be appointed,” telling Frawley he was not “professional.”
“If you are unhappy with me, that is too bad,” said Frawley, who said he would place it on the agenda for the selectmen’s next meeting on July 10.
The Peter Oliver Jr. House, 455 Plymouth Street, was built in 1769 by Judge Peter Oliver for his son. The family were loyalists and escaped to Canada and settled in England during the early days of the revolution. Town Meeting voted funds to purchase the historic property in April 2015.

Middleboro, Massachusetts’ Haunted Oliver House is Teeming with Restless Spirits

Dr. Peter Oliver took to his diary to share his frustrations in scribblings which were eventually republished in the book History of the town of Middlebrow, Massachusetts.
