KingCast tells ACE Attorney Staci Rubin on 525 Beach Street Revere 21-E and possible Superfund site: "If you didn't have evidence of hazardous substances on site, now you do."

Well folks it looks like someone's getting schooled.... and with KingCast and Mortgage Movies it isn't the first time nor will it be the last. You see, that's just how I am. I will go and cover the things that most major press ignores. I saw it 22 years ago before law school when I worked for major press, and I vowed I would never be that way, no sellouts allowed.

And not only that, there was a soup kitchen there in the mid 1980's that left, and a storage facility plan in 2000 that never materialized for some reason. It was an interesting ride over to the Revere Fire Station and City Hall offices today. Chief Fire Inspector Nathaniel S. Maniff told me he could not recollect anyone coming to his office for due diligence review on the site nor could he recall anyone pulling the 2,000 gallon underground tank. He invited me back next week to pour through the old files, however. Also the zoning application and ZBA approvals were devoid of any specific mention of the gasoline/oil issue, it was all in euphemisms. I didn't see any evidence of due diligence in any of the files. I'll show you in the video late night or early morning.

My emails to and from the Ambrosio law firm, the Mayor and ACE follow below the fold:

Dear Attorney Rubin et al. -- please be advised that I located the information noting this issue. 

I also read the Variance Application and Approval and I find it interesting to note the alleged presence of due diligence yet nothing in the file showing what that diligence was. How they got out of Site Plan Review without some sort of soils proof is beyond me but again perhaps there is a different (more lax) process for residential units than for the wireless towers that I zoned throughout the Country, including the Greater Boston area.....

In any event I will take it upon myself to revisit Chief Fire Inspector Maniff soon to see if anyone has removed the 2,000 gallon tank.

Please don't hesitate to call or write should you have any questions.

Kindest regards,

I was suspended for a year after I pissed off a bunch of judges by filing complaints against them while I was beating up on some bad cops after I left the AG's Office. Those were the days.....

I was an assistant AG under Lee and Betty, and have won or settled several §1983 actions on my own, one in which my client and I had the police found liable in Court of Claims for making him a victim of violent crime. V96 61481

I actually wrote quite a bit of the successful Cheryl Lessin appeal when I was Terry Gilbert's law clerk before I graduated from Case.
67 Ohio St. 3d 487 (1993)

I hope you enjoyed my current and prior coverage out in Revere, first of the Dan Talbot Murder trial and now the 21E issue.

I'll be covering any and all events in which Mr. Clifford Pisano is engaged from this point forward until completion.

If you have any other questions I'll be more than happy to answer them.

Dear Ms. Rubin,

I will be posting out conversation online so that everyone can see exactly what the issues and allegations are. That is how I operate, in the open. While you declined my request for an interview I do appreciate your prompt response to my inquiry, which has served much the same purpose.

Hello Mr. King,

This responds to your email and inquiries about 525 Beach Street, Revere.  ACE is not providing legal representation to the residents concerned about the current and future status of 525 Beach Street.  Therefore, I have not researched and cannot respond to your questions about the current zoning status of 525 Beach Street. Thus, I also decline your request for an interview.

I read your blog and noted several inaccuracies.  I request that you correct the following inaccuracies in your blog. 

(1)   “An ACE staff attorney had actual knowledge of hazardous conditions . . .” - No person at Alternatives for Community & Environment, Inc. (ACE) has knowledge of hazardous conditions at 525 Beach Street. We understand that several Revere residents are concerned about possible contamination at 525 Beach Street.  ACE has not seen documentation of such contamination and does not know if such documentation exists.  No ACE staff person stated that ACE has documents on file proving such contamination.  We have no such documents.

.......I never said that you had actual knowledge of hazardous conditions, that is an allegation by Mr. Pisano. I am asserting that you had actual knowledge of the use of the property as I do not believe two grown men would lied about your representations to them at a meeting several months ago. I am told by Michael Marks and Clifford Pisano that they had a sit down with you several months ago at your office, and that you said you had documents you obtained from the City of Boston that showed the site usage to include BP/Gibbs Oil.

(2)   “. . . Attorney Rubin initially told him that she would provide him with documents that she has on file. . .” – No ACE staff person made any statements about having documents on file concerning contamination at 525 Beach Street.  Because ACE is not representing Revere residents on the 525 Beach Street matter, ACE has no obligation to research whether any documentation proving contamination exists. 
.....I reiterate all of my preceding comments. In addition, Mr. Marks said "The meeting was done with the understanding of her getting him a lawyer after he gave her certain paperwork. She said she was being contacted by the developers, then she never contacted him. He did his part but I think she dropped the ball on her end." I have noted that you did write back to Mr. Pisano on or about 13 February, 2012 on the eve of my video production and on the eve of His Honor's request for resignation of ZBA and other licensing officials.

(3)   “Is ACE Getting in Bed with Dirty Revere Government . . .” - No ACE staff person has had any communication with Revere government elected officials or employees about 525 Beach Street.
......That is a figure of speech that does not require modification. However I might ask why you have not had an discussion with Revere Officials given that you had concerned citizens at your office complaining about the issue. Why bother to take their complaints if you weren't going to contact anyone from the city to do at least some preliminary fact finding, I cannot for the life of me understand that. 

(4)   “Are the City of Revere and ACE putting public health at risk by allowing swank residential development over the old Gibbs Oil building at 525 Beach Street?” - The residential development proposed for 525 Beach Street, if built according to plans, will contain 30 affordable rental apartments. That is generally not considered a definition of “swank.”  Further, no ACE staff person has seen evidence that the public health is at risk. We would expect the developers of the site to be required to comply with the state law for cleaning up contaminated sites if any contamination is found on the site.
.......We can agree to disagree on what is swank. Perhaps that is a stretch. Again, my point -- as someone who has successfully zoned dozens if not hundreds of wireless towers over the past 10 years -- is that I find it hard to believe that no testing was done prior to the Variance/Use Permits.

ACE is not providing legal representation to the residents concerned about the current and future status of 525 Beach Street.  Therefore, I cannot respond to your questions about the current status of 525 Beach Street and will not grant an interview.  Any individual may contact the City of Revere to seek information about zoning variances and historical information about parcels of land and contact the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection about any report of contamination at 525 Beach Street

........I am doing just that tomorrow morning. I expect they will have the entire file for my review. 

Please correct the inaccuracies in your blog and remove ACE’s logo.

...... There are no inaccuracies in my journal. I have addressed your concerns and will respectfully decline your request to remove ACE's logo from my journal page.

To all,

At this time my chief question involves the order of process. It is my understanding that at least one zoning variance was granted, and perhaps some conditional use permits. Can someone explain to me how these were granted in the absence of EPA testing such as the 21E when we have what seems to be actual knowledge of hazardous substances present. In contrast, whenever we filed for a CUP or Variance putting up a wireless structure we had to have our surveys and soils testing completed prior to full submission and approval. 

Can you forward me a PDF of the following:

1. All zoning regs. including Variance application processes.
2. A copy of any and all Variances/CUPs issued for the subject property since.... well.... back to the entire record eventually but for now just back to 2006.

As you can see by the link in my journal post I am no stranger to New England zoning (or zoning in general) but I have never seen things develop in that order.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance in aiding my comprehension of what is transpiring.


PS: Ultimately, I have no horse in this race, other than the Good of the Community. As I told Ms. Barnett today the last time I was in your building I was with Dwayne (Dagha). 

Christopher King, J.D.

Quel coincidence! as the French would say.

I can read French but I trust the variance and conditions appurtenant thereto is written in English.
