If you’ve read the Telegram article regarding Chief Gemme’s safety concerns about giving a deposition at Hector Pineiro’s office, you may find the following of interest:
The Telegram is reporting that the city has clarified its social media policy “in the wake of concerns raised by some city councilors in recent months about the use of social media by the Police Department and by Police Chief Gary J. Gemme via his own Twitter account.”
As far as I can tell, this is the same policy we reported on last week; the article indicates that the policy was inspired, in part, by Chief Gemme’s use of various forms of social media.
Nick Kotsopoulous also reports that city employees had to read and sign an updated 10-page “Computer Access and Usage Policies and Procedures for the City of Worcester.”

to the officers that he was robbed of his wallet out in the store parking lot.
According to the victim, a male suspect followed him inside the store as he made a purchase. The male suspect kept close to him while inside the store making witnesses believe that the male was his caretaker. Once outside, the suspect ripped away his wallet that was attached to a chain around his neck. The suspect ran off on Park Avenue. There were no contents inside the victim’s wallet.
The police have posted a photo of the robber, from a surveillance camera and are asking for tips.
Two nonprofits, one focusing on “business and workforce development,” the other on “housing and support services,” have announced they are merging.
Worcester Business Journal: “SMOC can help people with basic necessities, and the MLK center has the resources to help them find jobs or start small businesses.”
T&G: “The organizations reported that the MLK Center’s facility at 237 Chandler St. in Worcester will not be used as a shelter or group residence under the merger.”
We’re waiting to hear back from the City about whether this is brand-new; the time stamp, and its absence from Google’s previous cache of this page, are suggestive.
A petition on this very issue was submitted to the City Council this week:
9u. Joe Scully request the creation of a public records and data retention policy regarding the use of social media technology to support increased transparency and openness in government.
That petition was referred to the Rules and Legislative Affairs Committee. If you have any thoughts on improving this policy, that would be a good forum to present them.

Here are the official notes from the meeting. The petitions regarding video archives, social media, and a public records point person were all referred to the Rules and Legislative Affairs Committee (George Russell/Bill Eddy/Joe O’Brien).

(Yes, I am a bit disoriented in the video above. There was a well-attended recognition of Herb Adams at the beginning of the meeting, and we were still standing in the hall, waiting for the crowd to clear out, when we heard the Mayor announce that the first of our petitions was under consideration.)
You will remember that a Clark student walking home at night in February was forced into a car, robbed, and sexually assaulted.
Jacqueline Vachon-Jackson, chief of staff for economic development for City Manager Michael V. O’Brien, was suspended yesterday, according to a City Hall source.
. . . Ms. Vachon-Jackson’s supervisors reportedly confronted her about her recent purchase of a city condo from a property owner associated with the developer of an affordable housing rehabilitation project at a building at 5 May St. in the city’s Main South neighborhood.
