E-mail follies

Jay Rourke obviously never met Michael Kineavy. Otherwise he would not have been so stupid as to write disparaging e-mails about the Allston-Brighton community and then fail to double delete them.

Doesn't anyone have a clue about e-mail etiquette -- especially when they work in the public sector?

This round of e-mail mania can only reinforce the out-of-touch nature of the Menino administration (don't kid yourself about BRA autonomy). All the campaign cash in the world will not make for a smooth fifth term for Hizzoner.

And it should also reinforce the notion that Glove and Herald reporters covering state and local officials ought to be pumping out FOIA requests like there is no tomorrow. Who knows what other juicy gems are out there?

Read yesterday's Nashua Telegram, New Hampshire has NO retention policies on the books re: e-mails. And our state government is not a model of consistenct either, try getting records betond a year from the office that regulates records.

See what the Patrick Administration started?

Thanks Chipper, but the public records law and the e-mail requirements precede Patrick.

Didn't mean that, meant that the Patrick Administration (Rubin, Aloisi, etc) had their e-mails out in the media first, now Menino, who's next?
