VOTING 101 - PASHINSKI IS LEIGHTON'S CRONY... SO DON'T VOTE FOR HIM

WHERE HAS PASHINSKI BEEN WHILE ACTIVISTS FIGHT FOR THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS ON THEIR OWN DIME AND ON THEIR OWN TIME?

Pashinski response to bloated / no show / do nothing salaries in city hall ($ 80 k and $ 90 k salaries)? Nothing (These are tax dollars).
Pashinski response to Leighton's 3 hour work day?  Nothing. (These are tax dollars).
Pashinski response to Leighton's alcoholic tyranny?  Nothing.
Pashinski response to rampant WB crime?   Nothing.
Pashinski response to YOUR thousands of tax dollars used to criminally defend Leighton? Nothing. (These are tax dollars).
Pashinki response to LAG corruption empire and gas gate and credit union scam?  Nothing.

But Pashinski will work with Leigton on...
1)  Initiating more Low Income Housing (learned nothing from Sherman Hills?)
2)  He will support insanely high property taxes forcing people from their home (against Bill 76). SEE BELOW.

Why would anyone vote for this "suit"?
How could anyone be more aloof and uncaring?

Has this guy improved your life... at all?
Only three press releases - in all of 2014!!
(http://www.pahouse.com/Pashinski/all.asp?med=NR)  
Pashinski advanatge over Summers? 
1) His teeth are straighter.
2) He dresses nice in suits versus Betsy Summers who actually rolls up her sleeve and works (such as cleaning up alleys).

PORN and STATE POLICE COMMISSIONER DON'T MIX

STATE POLICE COMMISSIONER NOONAN -
WHAT YOU DO ON YOUR PRIVATE TIME IS YOUR BUSINESS.
WHAT YOU DO ON STATE TIME IS THE BUSINESS OF 13 MILLION PEOPLE.

FOUR UNANSWERABLES:
1) WHY DIDN’T YOU HIT DELETE?
2) WHY DIDN”T YOU PUNISH THE INSTIGATOR?
3) HOW ENTITLED AND UNTOUCHABLE DO YOU FEEL THAT YOU EVEN LET THIS HAPPEN?
4) IF A FEMALE INTERVEWED FOR A JOB – HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN THIS?


The "smoking gun" here is your old crony, Deputy Attorney General Frank Fina, tried his best to cover it up it.  So we know that this isn't "nothing."

From the playbook of former WB Chief Gerard Dessoye… shall I expect false charges?... perhaps a little padding? Harrassment maybe? Thousands of witnesses to these words.

SEE BELOW... for more on this sordid story...

FRANK NOONAN, PSP COMMISSIONER, PLEASE RESIGN

HERE
Regarding the pornography...

BOTTOM LINE: I worked for a corporation that fired people for this. This is the standard for this type of lewd behavior which promotes a hostile and sexist work environment. There is absolutely no reason why you should be held to a lower standard than the rest of society.

(A) You received hundreds of these porn messages - within a core group of workers - and you never disciplined the sender? You never said STOP?

(B) A "theme" was "devotion and willingness" illustrated by women performing sex acts on their bosses? REALLY?

(C) You represent the highest law enforcement position. Our state has 13 million people. And this is what we get? You're it?

(D) Do you have a daughter? How would you like her to work in this environment?

(E) Is your excuse this is what the "good ole boys" do? Boys will be boys? 


(F) Lastly, what does this say about your judgment that you'd allow this on work e mail?

(G) If there wasn't something to these e mails - then the former deputy AG (Frank Fina) wouldn't have tried to bury them.

THIS IS WHAT SCARES US. 
WHY DO YOU DESERVE ANOTHER CENT FROM THE PUBLIC?


FRANK NOONAN: As the highest state trooper in the state - you know better than anyone. You are clearly tone deaf by virtue of your words of praise for the former Chief of police, Gerard Dessoye - an intensely alcoholic and corrupt man who leaves in his wake a protected drug house, his "heroin honey" who ran it, a suicide, 5 indictments, a near decade-long criminal empire called LAG Towing, bribes going every which way, cars stolen left and right, multiple FBI investigations, and a death linked to the protected drug house. Oh, and I almost forgot - 13 murders last year. This is the guy you sing praise to? Why don't you just punch every citizen in the gut?



Your sickening and shameful cronyism and entitlement 
embodies everything we hate in our leaders.

YOU NEED TO RESIGN, SIR. If you had acted on these emails your boss (Governor Corbett) would have known and he didn't. You have no excuse. You knew and did nothing, period. As a former local resident (Mountaintop) you embarrass us. You have lost our respect. Please leave.

FACTS

- At least 8 officials
- State Police Commissioner NOONAN was one.

- Hundreds of sexually explicit photos, videos and messages from state email accounts 
- Slogans such as "devotion" or "willingness" The material depicted women performing sexual acts on their male bosses.

- NOT SPAM ->   "Emails were usually exchanged between a core group of people who worked in the office."
-  Only 2 were sent of the 80; the rest were received.

-  former Chief Deputy Attorney General Frank Fina (Republican) blocked disclosure


AG Kathy Kane: The statement below is not believable. You name some and not others? You are no better than Noonan if you are covering for others. DO NOT MAKE THIS ABOUT POLITICS.


FROM TIMES LEADER: Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court chief justice is asking the state attorney general’s office for the names of any judges involved in email exchanges containing pornography.

However, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Saturday that the emails weren’t collected in a way that allows the office to readily identify those who might have been involved by job description.

GAS THIEF MAYOR AND HIS FRIEND... ANOTHER CORRUPT FOOT SOLDIER

175, 633 views on this site   Thank You and keep the faith. 

CORRUPT? AN OFFICIAL IS CORRUPT IF HE KNOWS OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR AND DOESN'T ACT, SPEAK, OR LEAD. If I know of criminal activity - you KNOW our state rep does.

Thomas Leighton is so toxic, so corrupt, and so alcoholic that anybody that "plays with him" is a "corrupt foot soldier." This means Eddie Day Pashinski. We don't need someone smooth. We need an honest politician with guts. Someone who won't work with Leighton... but one who will work to remove him. Wilkes-Barre is seething in pain from Leighton.


Mr. Pashinski, many people claim to be aware that Leighton has given himself fraudulent appraisals... likely within the sphere the corrupt credit union where he is the sole appraiser. Mr. Pashinski, many people speak about Leighton borrowing against these fraudulent appraisals. ARE YOU THE LAST TO KNOW? YOU represent us - it is your job to know.

Sir, you have played no leadership role whatsoever amidst the hail storm of corruption in WB. We don't need "coal mining stamps" - we need corruption to end. 

Folks, WB is your city... and the adopted city of many. What are you going to do? If you continue to vote for Leighton's corrupt foot soldiers - you have yourselves to blame.

BETSY BSUMMERS lives by principle which is the rarest
thing you can find these days. She is the farthest you can get from Leighton. What do you have to lose? Pashinski is an empty suit.


LOW INCOME HOUSING     Let's look at the low income housing they want to put near Dana Street.
(1) It is being called "moderate income" to trick you.
(2) The last thing WB needs is more low income housing. Hopefully you are smart enough to realize that these two jokers will benefit in some way that they aren't telling you.

SHERMAN HILLS

1) Leighton selectively inspects buidings. This criminal dump went years free from inspections/repairs. Do you think Leighton got a piece of this action? Some of the hundreds of thousands saved? While other buildings are inspected regularly?
2) There was a federal raid on this place. What does that tell you?


I hope the people of WB are smart enough to not trust Pashinski/Leighton with another low income project.

CHIEF BALAVAGE AND DICKSON FUNDRAISER

Dickson memorial fundraiser
Graham Public Relations said ‘The Vault Tap and Kitchen’, 301 N. Main Ave., Scranton, will be the setting for the first public fundraiser for the Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II Memorial Fund from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday. A $10 donation at the door will include free pizza and wing bar, plus $1 from every drink sold on this day will be contributed to the fund, all proceeds will benefit and go directly to the ‘Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II Memorial Fund’.
Patrons will also be able to buy ‘PSP Strong’ T-shirts at this event. The public may also donate gift baskets by contacting Michelle Romanaskas at 570-446-9290.  My sons and I will be present to present check of $1,000 on behalf of WB Taxpayers Association.
CHIEF BALAVAGE OF KINGSTON TWP
They couldn't be farther apart. I never met Chief Balavage, but I know that Kingston Twp aggressively pursued Leo Glodzik who head-butted one of its cops. WB Chiefs Dessoye and Hughes not only coddled Leo Glodzik - but helped expand LAG's criminal empire.

After my initial horrific LAG experience, I was pulled over in Kingston Township. I ended up writing a letter thanking the officers for their courtesy. They gave me faith that professionalism was not dead. There was discipline within their ranks. So Chief Balavage... I thank you for the "fruits" of your labor which is the comportment of your officers. Have a blessed retirement.


courtesy of PaHouse.com

The followingrepresents my opinions based on nearly 40 months of anti-corruption work....

Wilkes-Barre finds itself in a horrible predicament. Until Leighton is forced out of office, most of the appointed positions are being granted to his"CORRUPT FOOT SOLDIERS" regardless of their qualifications or honor. Who is being hired? Those who will "SHUT THEIR MOUTH FOR LEIGHTON." 



Acting WB Chief Bob Hughes should resign due to his selling of stolen LAG cars (stolen) on consignment at A1 Auto. I know that there are real victims because I tried to help many of them! We have a chief who was selling stolen cars people!! (What is stolen? I consider a car to be stolen if LAG Towing illegally price gouged (both initial plus storage fees) a customer which illegally led to LAG taking custody of the property. Since LAG price gouged nearly 100 % of his customers... nearly 100% of his cars would  be considered stolen).

Greg Barrouk as city manager is an absolute joke. He has a Psych degree and is being paid $91,000 as city manager. If you scroll down you can find calculations regarding what MLK Day would cost. It would not cost the city $77,000!  It would be less than $10,000... but we don't have anyone in city hall that knows finance (Kathy Kane, the Controller, was a former  1st grade teacher).

Sources/reactions for above material: King's students, WBPD, West side PD, WB firemen, bartenders, liquor store clerks. other law enforcement personnel, victims of crimes, local news reporters, local TV reporters, store owners, regular citizens. Almost all have sought me out through different forms of social media and/or communication. As far as chemical addiction goes... I still hold myself open to help heal those with this horrible disease where present and will grant anonymity unless it is illegal given the circumstances. I will not take pity on those who refuse to get help.

King's College:King's College: It tortures one'e logic and sense of decency that anyone would hire a security chief with a known alcohol disease, a history of corruption, open federal investigations, a suicide because of these investigations, and two WB cops indicted along with LAG Towing. Realistically, as I see it, there are only two possibilities. 

(1) Father Ryan is giving back a favor to Leighton/Dessoye or is anticipating a favor (special treatment).
(2) Leighton and/or Dessoye are forcing Father Ryan's because they "hold something over him." I would see this as a form of blackmail.

Nothing else makes sense.

If you read the news articles carefully about Dessoye's retirement, nearly all of the kind remarks were made about Dessoye prior to him becoming chief. I don't dispute that he was a good cop. However, it is my opninion that over time alcoholism degraded Dessoye of his abilities and likely led him into corruption. The fact that King's College would hire someone in this condition - when they were clearly warned - is beyond reprehensible. 

King's is putting at risk not just Dessoye, not just his family, but both the SAFETY AND THE REPUTATION of the King's community.

WB TAXPAYER ASSOCIATION DONATES $!,000 TO TROOPER'S FAMILY - AND MORE CORRUPTION

... TWO LITTLE BOYS WITHOUT A DADDY
... A WIDOW
... BRYON DICKSON WAS ONE OF THE BEST
(Top of blog = The BEST      Bottom of blog = More of the WORST)





AMIDST THE CORRUPTION IN WB WE MUST ALWAYS SEPARATE THE ROSES FROM THE THORNS ... IN WB AND OUTSIDE OF IT











WE PURPOSEFULLY DO NOT REPORT ON THE MOST
HONEST WB POLICE FOR FEAR LEIGHTON WOULD FIRE THEM.



WE KNOW THAT FOR NOW IN WB...  ONLY THE DIRT RISES.
==============================================



SADLY... THERE IS MORE CORRUPTION NEWS TO REPORT:   
(1)     MAUREEN McCORMICK   (Maureen McCormick (WB City Administrator) retired. She has the potential to be the biggest paragon of justice this county has ever seen if she would sit down with the FBI and tell them everything she knows. As City Administrator - she had the best seat in the house.

(2)     GREG BARROUK:  She has been replaced by a woefully unqualified but politically connected Greg Barrouk. He was the "face" of the Hawkeye Camera system. Millions have been lost on this debacle. He has a Psychology degree and will be paid $91,000. SCROLL DOWN for more info.

(3)    MORE GAS THEFT   From article, a polite way of saying "theft": "We are concerned in light of the city’s failure to correct a previously reported finding of non-permissible expenditures.”    SEE TIMES LEADER LINK HERE

(4)      IT IS SO SAD IT'S FUNNY     With both Gerard DUH-SOYE  and Maureen McCormick... the city tried to "sell us" on the fact that they both "just happened" to pick a retirement date with about 18 months left in Leighton's term. Does anyone actually believe that between them... they'd leave about $270,000 on the table by not finishing his term?  PREPOSTEROUS. DON'T GET TOO COMFORTABLY NUMB - DESSOYE. YOU AND KING'S ARE ON OUR LIST. 

(5)     LEIGHTON LIES TO RON FELTON: See below


IS LEIGHTON IS LYING OR CITY HALL IS FINANCIALLY ILLITERATE?  
PROBABLY BOTH ARE TRUE.


RON FELTON OF NAACP  -  PLEASE READ!!!!

PLEASE KNOW... ALCOHOLICS LIE WHENEVER THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS.




Leighton claims that the Martin Luther King Day Holiday would cost the city $77,0000. That is about $68,000 off. But what would you expect with a real estate guy, a school teacher, and a Psychology major as the "financial brain trust."

Here is what the holiday would cost:
Incremental expenses = $10,008

Incremental Savings (DPW and City Hall closed)
Gas, electric, phone, gas for city vehicles shut down for one day

Approximate Savings = $1,000

TOTAL COST TO CITY = $9,008   not  $77,000

$68,000 lower than Leighton's figure

POINT TO REMEMBER: SALARIES ARE PAID EITHER WAY.


Assumptions:
6 police per shift and 3 firemen per shift  x  3 shifts  =  27   x  24 hours  = 648 OT hours
Avg salary of $60,000 transates to $30 per hour.   OT pay = 1/2 of $30 = $15 per hour
 648  times $15  =   $ 9,720

6 garbage men x  4 hours overtime times (next day)  x   $12 per hour =  $288

$288  plus   $9720  =  $10,008

There would be no productivity lost because the city is already way overstaffed. This is why Leighton has a 3 hour work day!

LEIGHTON TO BARROUK: "I WILL PAY YOU TO SHUT YOUR MOUTH"

This is the clear message given to the new 91,000 dollar man. This is the salary of the new WB City Manager - Greg Barrouk. Is he qualified? Oh... I forgot... the only qualification that matters to Leighton is one's ability to "shut up and look the other way."



One may argue that he was the Assistant City Manager. But he wasn't qualified for that either. It would be like saying that since you work in a Doctor's office that you are qualified to be a physician! So what has he done? He was the "face" on the completely botched mullt-million Hawkeye Camera System. As a result of his failure he will be paid almost $100,000.

This appointment is an insult to all the more diligent and disciplined and smarter students who earned their MBA's (or even a business/accounting degree). Would any of you like this salary?

Barrouk has a Psychology degree from Wilkes. And now he is the city business manager.

Others:
- Kathy Kane: School teacher working as Controller; sometimes shows up
- Liza Prokopf: Leighton's YMCA trainer as spokesman
- New King's graduate: Head of Municipal Affairs (How different than City Manager or Asst City Manager?). Fresh out of college.
- Thomas Leighton: 3 hour workday (see below)
- Greg Barrouk: Paid nearly $100,000 per year to run city business with a Psychology degree.
- Jim Ryan: Paid an astonishing $80,000 per year to work in the sleepy records office where a wall hides all the newspaper reading.

This looks to me like an operation an active alcoholic would run.

Why is Leighton filling Greg Barrouk's old spot when he (Leighton) only works three hours per day? (source: Former city administrator JJ Murphy in court room testimony in Montgomery County, Pa). THERE MUST BE A LOT OF INTERNET SURFING AT CITY HALL! 

Of course it helps to be connected. Daddy Barrouk led the CHAMBER. The he switched hats to work for the now imprisoned MERICLE.

QUESTIONS:
(1) Did Steve Barrouk sell properties from the Chamber to Mericle at less than market prices?

(2) Did Barrouk agressively buy properties for the Chamber with the destination of Mericle in mind?
(3) Were all Chamber properties competitively bid on?
(4) Were Chamber properties sold to Mericle at lowball prices so Barrouk (and Mericle) could later make a killing on buying/leasing these properties?

Would any of this be legal as Head of the Chamber? Just asking.

It is easy to like the Barrouk's. They are pleasant and nice people. But it is also important to look past the "nice-ness" and ask tough questions. Corruption can come in "smiley packages."

FOLKS, CORRUPTION COMES WITH CONSEQUENCES.

-THINK OF THE EDUCATION LOST FROM CRONY TEACHERS (CONSIDER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR BEST AND WORST TEACHERS IN SCHOOL)
- THINK OF THE MONEY WASTED ON CRONY HIRES
- JUST LOOK AT HAWKEYE TO SEE THE RESULTS  (WHAT IF THE PERSON RUNNING IT WAS ACTUALLY COMPETENT?)

CORRUPT KINGS COLLEGE MAY HAVE CONNIVED TO GET THEIR SUSPECT BUILDINGS... BUT STUDENTS WILL NOT WANT TO COME TO A CITY THAT LOOKS LIKE DETROIT.

CLEAN HOUSE NEXT ELECTION... OR KISS WB GOOD-BYE!
