Guest MINDSETTER™ Tom Kenney: Fire Pare
Monday, March 21, 2016
On December 7, 2015 the Providence Journal ran a front page article criticizing my service on the Providence Fire Department written by Mark Reynolds. I have already addressed the fact that most of the information in the article, provided by Pare and George Farel, was false. In his follow up Mr. Reynolds contacted me a couple of days before the article was scheduled to run. In our conversation Mr. Reynolds stated that he was looking at my injury reports as we spoke. When I asked how he had gotten these reports he stated that they were provided to him by Commissioner Pare.
These were my injury reports which detailed information regarding personal medical occurrences. This is a direct violation of the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws.
I’ve been investigating my legal options regarding Mr. Pare’s violation of Federal HIPAA laws against me in the December 2015 article and his subsequent Op/Ed piece against me.
When looked at in wake of the Commissioner’s blatant disregard for the Federal FMLA laws it clearly shows the actions of a person who defiantly holds himself above the law. He needs to be stopped.
Once again I implore the members of the Providence City Council to reign in this “man out of control” and discipline him as he has so many others – fire him!

Paul Doughty responds to a post by Elorza on another subject, to steer the fight back to the firefighters.
A photo meme that was orginated by firefighters in social media, before being used on signs during a recent firefighter rally at City Hall.
On May 21, when Elorza announced the platoon shift, he tweeted instead about a volunteer event he attended -- and not of the firefighter decision.
Doughty uses Twitter to show the contrast of a prior Elorza statement, versus his current position.
Doughty takes to social media to tell firefighter supporters than any threats against the Mayor would not be tolerated.
Doughty often comments on other actions by Mayor Elorza in an effort to bolster the firefighters' position.
Doughty takes immediate social action after the Mayor weighs on about the recent court decision.
Media coverage on the fight is often retweeted by Doughty -- something which Elorza does not do with firefighters.
