METHUEN, MA – – It’s politics as usual in Methuen where the city’s towing contractor, Valley Towing, happens to be owned by the City’s Licensing Board Chairman, Ronald Parrino. This is a public government body where the Police appear before Mr. Parrino regularly when taking enforcement actions against city licensed businesses, such as licensed auto dealers and repairers like Valley Towing.
The son of long time Valley Towing manager Joe (Fletch) Rubino, just happens to be the Methuen Police Department’s Parking Enforcement Officer, Jeff Rubino. Valley towing has been contracted with Methuen Police since before Jeff was born.
During the winter of 2017 – 2018 Methuen experienced some of the heaviest snowfall on record. Many vehicles were towed by Valley Towing per order of Jeff Rubino MPD.
Karen Toto was the former Lawrence Police Department’s Parking Enforcement Officer before finally leaving after numerous workers compensation claims. She also happens to be the long time girlfriend of Ron Parrino.
This is not a coincidence. Valley Towing has been towing for Methuen and Lawrence Police for decades and they have strategically placed themselves in a position to capitalize. What do you think?
If you think that’s a little fishy, read about how this place was caught stealing cars in the 1980’s, went out of buisness, but reopened in a MASS State Troopers name, with the Lawrence and Methuen Towing Contracts and DPU Certificate at the same location, seamlessly. We have the proof !
