Haverhill used-car dealer gets reprieve from Council

Customers with complaints against Kalil failed to show at meeting


In his recent letter to the commission, Kalil said the “adjustments to the company” made in 2011 have worked great and that the dealership has sold more than 500 vehicles since the last time he was in front of the commission.

Commission Chairman Joseph Edwards said the commission would take up the consumer complaints again at its May meeting, but that if neither DiGregorio nor the Duquettes show, they will have to drop the matter.

At the end of last night’s meeting, Kalil used his camera time to promote what he said was an effort he is leading to create a charity for donating money to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Boston.

Kalil said he has been going around to talk to other car dealers in the area with the goal of getting them to agree to donate $10 for every vehicle they sell. The commission’s meetings are broadcast on Haverhill’s local cable access channel.

“Everyone in this world takes, and no one gives back,” Kalil said, referring to his effort to give something back.
