Your Take: Rev. Mahoney and Life Focus Center
Charlestown Patch readers side with town priest in attacking Life Focus Center leaders.
We posted an article yesterday highlighting criticism made by Rev. Daniel Mahoney of the St. Francis De Sales Church toward Jack Millerick, executive director of the Life Focus Center.
Mahoney suggested that Millerick should stop down from his post following reports that he misspent agency funds. Charlestown Patch readers echoed Mahoney's calls while taking care to praise the priest.
Susan Flahery offered a similar comment: "Good for Father Mahoney a very honorable man steps up to do what's right once again!"
A read calling him or herself 'mm,' also praised Mahoney, then turned on Millerick.
"Millerick is the sole person to be targeted since he is the only THIEF!" mm wrote. "Time for him to lose his cushy job and deal with what ever punishment he gets."
Several commentors concluded that the only way for the agency to reclaim its credibility would be to purge its leaders.
"LFC does meaningful work, but the staff has a severe credibility issue that can only be solved by cleaning house," wrote Stephen Raymond "Everyone has to go. That organization is too small to think that they all didn't know/see what was going on."
