When you spend the better part of a few hours of the Council’s time bitching about parking in the city, it’s best you follow the law yourself, dink.

Neil Kinnon, Former Malden City Councillor, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the embattled Mystic Valley Charter School, and professional chudstuffer
Neil Kinnon embodies everything that is wrong with local government. He feels that the rules don’t apply to him, yet grandstands about the very same issue he scoffs at himself at city council sessions for hours on end. Stand up guy, right?
As you can see, there is a pretty visible “No Parking Any Time” sign that Councillor Kinnon thumbed his nose at.
If you’re not familiar with the “Broken Windows Theory” it’s broken down pretty simply right here:
Basically, if you let the little shit go, it snowballs into big shit, and that has definitely been the case in Malden the last 10 or so years. What was once named one of the best communities in the US to raise a child has turned into a complete and utter fucking armpit, jockeying with nearby trashpits like Everett and Chelsea for the “who can do worse?” awards.
His constituents were clearly pissed:
It seems that Neil’s resignation came on the heels of his parking fiasco, and while it would be fucking HILARIOUS if that were the reason… it seems that the actual reasoning behind it is Kinnon made a backroom deal to secure the city’s CFO position
Oh, and the SeeClickFix app that people like Captain Save-a-Ho Randy Hurley from our Revere Ratchet Saga uses REALLY works! Don’t think the Malden PD actually did anything about it, though, given Councillor Kinnon’s son is a Malden cop.
What’s even more hilarious is that Kinnon’s resignation letter to the Council cites “obligations” to his 4 children… all of which are grown and gone off to college or are already in their respective careers.
Uh huh, sure… because that’s what I dream to do when the North Shore Turtlebabies are off my tit finally and into the real world – drop all my obligations and follow them around! Fuuuuuuuuuuck that.
There is an interesting Boston Blob article here that goes into detail, if you’re so inclined to read it.
It is disgusting to me that a man who is quoted on record as saying multiculturalism is “nothing but a con by the rich and those who want to take down this Country by selling out the future of our children.” Has his sights set on this position, and even crazier still that he will likely get it. Essentially, in the eyes of Kinnon, multiculturalism is inherently bad, folks. Even though Malden is a giant friggin melting pot, with 44% of the population being people of color. And this dude wants to run the city’s finances. Yikes.
Do yourselves a favor, Malden Ward 6, and check out who is running for Kinnon’s empty assholder and get out there and VOTE to bring someone who has the city’s best interests at heart into the council, not someone looking to further their own agenda.
