SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | NOVEMBER 7-13, 2019 SCITUATE 13 for ethical and other reasons beyond the scope of the Scituate Board of Canvassers, including taxation and the registration of a firearms sales business at that address," the letter states. It adds that D'Agostino misled the board by initially providing his address as 9 Neil Lane, "at which he did not actually live, nor intend to live, and which, perhaps most impor- tantly, does not exist on the town tax rolls, the 911 call list, or any of the property records for that location." Also, D'Agostino lists his parents' home, 18 Neil Lane, as his home address on his Federal Firearms License. Four units with four bathrooms exist at the property, numbered 1, 3, 5, and 7 Neil Lane. His family owns the property as a four-family unit, not including the unit numbered 9 Neil Lane. D'Agostino fought to dismiss the complaint, citing state law that Mahoney needed to file the com- plaint by July 17, 2018. The Board of Canvassers denied his motion on Feb. 6, and continued hearings throughout the summer. Scituate Democrat Michael Marcello also received the Board of Canvassers letter and said he was not satisfied with a response to his Access to Public Records Act request. Marcello requested the transcripts to the meetings in addition to the letter and was told the records were exempt. The Scituate town clerk, responding to the APRA request, said the transcripts could be obtained through the stenographer, Caroline Dion, directly. "This is a public hearing. Why are we not getting the transcripts?" Marcello said. "It's hard to believe the public doesn't have a right to the public hearing," he said. He said the Scituate Democrats will now file a complaint with the AG's office over the missing transcripts. Marcello previously filed a complaint with the AG about completely redact- ed documents following Police Chief Donald Delaere's temporary leave of absence. Marcello represents former Scituate Housing Authority Chairman Richard Finnegan in his claim that his removal from the Scituate Housing Authority was illegal. The Rhode Island Supreme Court denied the petition to hear the claim on Oct 20.
