Baldwin to b Town's first illegal Full time Police Chief?

Yes you heard it here, Our ever corrupt Board of Selectman, of which Billy is one, intends to appoint Billy as the Town's first Full time Police Chief. Some of you may remember that Billy left Atkinson's force after Selectman Bill Friel told him he would never be chief in Atkinson. He went to Plaistow, where we hear he wrought havoc among the troops there. Now both he and the BOS wish to once again, violate the Town's Conflict of Interest Ordinance, to feather their own nests. Not that this is unusual in Atkinson. This towns Boards of Selectmen and Police Chiefs have a long established record of violating this particular town law. Even having to be Ordered by the Court to OBEY it! Strange position for once sworn to UPHOLD the law.

 The conflict of interest ordinance requires a 12 month window between an employer- employee relationship. Billy wishes to go from selectman to chief in a day, not a year. He surely has learned a lot under the corrupt tutelage of his former Boss, Our last chief who was fired for cause.

 To Make matters worse, the selectmen intend to do this WITHOUT putting a warrant article before the voters to create this new $70,000+ position. Remember that in both 2000, and 2001, the voters of the town EXPRESSLY FORBADE the selectmen from making the chief's position full time, and the Budget COmmittee at the time, which now selectman Thompson was a member found that the ONLY way a FT chief made sense was if it combined the FT admin sgt.lt. position, we did not need two FT administrators. Note that Billy's Lt. position was the FIRST town position created by the selectmen WITHOUT A WARRANT ARTICLE TO THE VOTERS!

This act of corruption was engineered by Phil as both selectman and chief, and came on the heels of Billys frivolous lawsuit against the town for failure to promote him to Lt. and the demonstrably false claim that the town did not re imburse him for classes taken.(the selectmen had the cancelled checks in hand) This also shortly followed Billy's triumphant return from Kuwait, during which time he lied to the town about his military pay to his own personal benefit of $5,900.00. Fo those with short memories, The Town, in the person of selectman chairman Brian Boyle advanced Billy $5,900. offering to make up any difference between his town pay, and his military pay while deployed. A truly magnanimous gesture, only slightly clouded by the fact that as a former DoD contractor, Boyle knew the difference was miniscule. The Town advanced this money, demanding that Billy provide his military Leave and Earning statement, so they could reconcile accounts and determine the difference in pay. Billy refused to produce the LES for months, instead producing a "commanders BASE PAY letter" which understated his monthly pay by approximately $2,000.00, This ingnominious act was followed by Phil demanding that Billy be paid an EXTRA $511.75 per week as compensation, and anything less is "nickle and diming" the man defending his country. Finally after months of this dog and pony show, the Town demanded that Billy produce the LES or return the $5,900. Flash forward to today, our current BOS is raising the curtain on act two of this corrupt play.

The questions for the voters of Atkinson are as follows;

 1.) Why do you allow your BOS to engage in this corruption?

 2.) Why do you allow them to thwart your will? remember they work for you!

 3.) Why do we allow the actions of the BOS and the police chief to cost the town hundreds of thousands in legal fees for their improper actions?

 4.) Why do the voters have to go to Court to force their Town Officials to act LEGALLY?

 5.) Is this the track record of a man you want for chief?

If Baldwin gets the Chief position, does that mean that innocent citizens get followed around town again? You know like when the Conman was Chief? After all didn't Conman teach Baldwin everything he knows?

Will Baldwin and Conman have a party at Consentino's house if Conman wins a selectmen seat?

Hard to believe Baldwin came here as a police officer and within months was second in command. Now he returns from the Plaistow PD and ends up as Chief in Atkinson without a degree? Didn't think someone could move up through the ranks without paying their dues with years of experience and a degree.

Anyone think Baldwin OWES Conman a few favors? Think Cunningham will be the first to go as dispatcher after causing the Conman's firing with cause?

Oh, what a web those two weave......

Their won't be any JUSTICE in this town of Baldwin and Consentino have their way.

He cannot be appointed, he can't just go from being a Selectman and not fulfilling his term - to getting his fellow selectmen to appoint him to a job they are creating illegally.

This compares to the corruption of when PVC was Selectman and Chief.

It cannot be tolerated.

Billy has a degree.

Fair is fair. If Atkinson is to have a full-time police chief, let the voters decide, as has been done in the past. However, the prospect of this, combined with PC as a selectman is very, very troubling!

Anonymous said...

Billy has a degree? Since when? Where, when and what school issued the degree? If you are right it needs to be verified. Degree better not have come from the Consentino School of sexual asualt.

Anonymous said...

It came from some NH College and he got it around 2010. It is a four year degree. Search the newspaper records or the blog.

Is this him?

William Marty Baldwin of Atkinson and Heather Jean Beairsto and Thomas Cooper of Derry graduated from Franklin Pierce University in Rindge on May 17.

All the police officers will leave again and go back to Plaistow. Isn't that part of why they came here? This would disrupt the entire PD for another few years.

Stupid decision if they make it.

Anonymous said...

Someone explain to me why we would want a petty criminal, hiding behind his service in Kuwait as police chief? And, a fired former chief and sexual abuser as selectman. Just how low can the Atkinson go? Who- ever came up with this needs to be run out of office and maybe even run out of town.

This title and story should be forwarded to the state as a "warning " of an illegal act in the making to be imposed on the town. After all the past craziness by the Conman with all the law suits and the just cause of his firing they should take notice of what is to come if Baldwin is in the running for the chiefs position. The Conflict of Interest committee should do its job but only after formally being told of this. If any thing they should make it known that they will do their job after saying it would be the wrong thing to do when it comes to making the chiefs position if this is a true story and not another rumor.

Anonymous said...

He voted the police dept a cost of living raise, then voted for the job to be made full time, then gave himself a plug for the job on tv as a selectman, and applied for the job. How much more corrupt can he be?

Anonymous said...

He has got to go to!

Mark Acciard said...

No my bet is if Consentino gets elected, Bill Innis had better watch his back, as he was the one who recommended firing him when the selectmen got the investigative report of Consentino's actions.

Take it from my experience, Phil is a petty vindictive man with a long memroy for anyone who has even questioned him let alone opposed him.

I remember my first year on Budget, when I asked Phil "How many residnt use EA, and how many rides did you give?" Jane Cole kicked me under the table and whispered that I will now have to drive 25 through town for the rest of my life. I asked why, she answered " You questioned Phil on camera"

Little did I know at the time, she was absolutely correct. as usual.

Baldwin announced he will not be in the running for the chiefs position in todays E.T. - Now he will await the Plaistow chiefs retiring to become their chief- or so he thinks. If he gets the job then heaven help that town for having done so. If Plaistow residents remember the what and why Baldwin left Atkinson after having been associated with the Conman and his pay issues,etc., that came to light then it would be better that the Plaistow selectmen and town manager turn him down. Any person from w/i that department or any well qualified outsider should be the chief. One thing that should be looked at is those who have worked hard for so long should have the opportunity to advance . When Baldwin transferred to Plaistow by their town managers recommendation as a Lt. his appointment there caused moral problems and officers leaving that should have had the opportunity to advance in their positions of employment . I hope that there are readers of this from Plaistow to make them aware of the unfairness to the many officers that are in their police department.

When you said: "Baldwin has a degree".

Don't know where you get your information but once again you are wrong. Don't you get tired of "Spreading bad information"?

Just to set the record straight for you, here it is from today's Eagle Tribune.

This is straight from the Horses ... ah...Mouth.

Baldwin said he is working on completing a master’s degree in business administration in an effort to boost his resume for a police chief position.

So ANON January 7, 2014 at 11:28 AM

Do you think you can get it right from now on?

Mark Acciard said...

To the last commentator;

I believe Billy received his Bachelors degree in 2010 or so after roughly ten years of pursuing it.

He is now going for his Master's but no word on progress.

Anonymous said...

To 10:01 - You are the one who is wrong. He got his Bachelors degree and as the paper states he is not going for his Masters. You cannot go for a Masters unless you have the 4 year degree. Apparently you are the one who is spreading bad information since you don't know the drill and obviously do not have a degree or you would know.

Anonymous said...

typo - - he is NOW going for his Masters

Mark Acciard said...

To the BOS, if , as you claim, you have "three legal opinions" that you can CREATE a full time position by simply adding money to the budget.

PRODUCE THE OPINIONS, or you can simply admit you lied again.

Putting money in the budget simply allows you to spend it, it does not CREATE a new position that never before existed.

For that you must go to the LEGISLATIVE BODY. as you have always done .


I would LOVE to see the BudCom ask the selectmen;

"WHERE DO YOU GET THE AUTHORITY TO CREATE A FULL TIME POSITION WITHOUT THE VOTERS APPROVAL"?

ALSO; "WHERE IS THE RECORDED VOTE OF THE BOS TO CREATE SAID POSITION WITHOUT VOTER APPROVAL"?

Anonymous said...

Does anyone have anything better to do than bash Baldwin? He was ELECTED by the town...he didn't just become selectman.

Anonymous said...

For all his college degrees or lack of college degrees, you take your pick, Baldwin has shown some really poor judgement. He must think leading the town is one big joke. It's a little late to take him serious now.















Mark Acciard said...

To 10:43pm; Yes and they twice elected Consentino,, and look at the hundreds of thousands of dollars THAT wasted.

And the discussion is not about his role as selectman, but about his attempt to become chief.

Anonymous said...

It's about his attempt to become a FT Chief, a job he just voted to create, a job he just set salary of $78k for (up from his %57k in Plaistow), a job he would take if he was appointed, THEN QUIT THE JOB HE WAS ELECTED TO.

I have better things to do than to have to watch them all the time because they cannot be trusted.

Who can blame him for wanting to become chief? It's the goal of most ranking officers. Furthermore when he ran for selectman the position wasn't open for chief! You cannot fault the man for wanting to further his career.

Anonymous said...

I don't fault him but he should go about it the right way and he may get it.

He committed to being a Selectman so just because something better comes along, doesn't mean it's ok to jump ship. It shows lack of loyalty.

Not to mention the minor point of VIOLATING TOWN LAW!

Readers of the blog, have you ever changed jobs ( as a promotion)? When you did this did you get a pay increase, stay the same or take a 12,000 pay cut? I'm betting all of the readers of the blog that have answered this question answered yes to the first 2, all but Billy B he took a pay cut as a promotion and alot of us voted for him. Shame on us.

Anonymous said...

shame on him! we didnt twist his arm so he shoulnt be using his position now to create his dream job.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone ever actually talked to Baldwin? Or do you just spew these vile things about him?

Anonymous said...

He voted to make this position FT and then applied for it. I don't have to talk to him, he did it on tv.

Billy Baldwin, our MARRIED WITH KIDS, selectman and a Police Lt.
in Plaistow, was caught in a Plaistow police cruiser having sex
with a woman not his wife.

He's obviously been taught well by
former disgraced Police Chief Consentino.

Can our Atkinson selectmen do anything about Baldwin Is he
going to be fired by Plaistow or is by claiming the sex was consensual going to get him off?

Just as Phil tried to resign to prevent the truth about his groping himself while making sexual comments to dispatcher Joyce Cunningham from becoming
public, is the reason Baldwin
quickly withdrew his name from
consideration for the Chief's job because he doesn't want it becoming public knowledge about his sex tryst in the Plaistow cruiser and his being unfaithful to his wife.

Anonymous said...

Dispatcher is Lynne Cunningham

Anonymous said...

That's some heavy accusation, where's your information coming from?

Anonymous said...

is his name going on the laurie list? it should............

Anonymous said...

probably from the same Kingston cops that used to talk at the courthouse about him being fired from Kingston for sleeping in the Cruiser while on duty

Anonymous said...

IF ANY of that is true about sex in the cruiser, is it necessary to post it here where his WIFE and CHILDREN could see? Seeing that seems to be the posters concern that he is married.

Anonymous said...

Really? Seeing that I think the concern is that he's a police officer and a selectman who is dishonest and derelcit in his duty.

Anonymous said...

I wonder what its like to be perfect and have never made any mistakes...seems most people here could do tell me how it feels.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Billy B should have thought of the consequences before he had sex in the cruiser.

Anonymous said...

its not about being perfect but about being so imperfect. this is not a mistake but was a decision most people wouldnt make.

Anonymous said...

especially someone who is suppose to have higher morals

Anonymous said...

if this iis true, provide more details. why wasnt he fired by savage and fitzgerald like the dispatcher and another officer? when and where did it happen who caught them?

Anonymous said...

As the poster above me said, if this happened why is he still employed? At the very least he would be on suspension. It's one thing to disagree with his politics but to boldly state such distasteful things with no proof of such is beyond disgusting.

Anonymous said...

his firing from kingston wasnt made public so why do you expect anything? the real problem is the police cover ups by the chiefs and selectmen.
