No surprise here. Is that the same credit union that Jesse 'I hold and collect a check from many positions ' including DJ! Stick his azz in a hole and investigate the rest of the corrupted maggots.
One and the same. Probably none of this would have surfaced if the girl who was the credit union manager wasn't fired.

This was before Cramer got his foot in the door. Patterson, Anders (former teacher) and I don't know who else was on the CU board, decided to bring Jackson in. He then called himself the CEO. Eventually the girl who was fired decided to bring legal action against them and that's how all this erupted. Good for her.

I understand that at the annual meeting last Spring that Bialon was attempting to get either himself or his brother Jason nominated to the credit union board and was unsuccessful.

So, the credit union board could have had Patterson, Jackson,and Bialon. All they needed was Kraft and the "good ole boys" would have surfaced again. Instead they put Cramer on so I guess it did surface.

Do you think they will ever go away? People in the district need to get involved or wiseup and listen/read what's going on in our community.

Good points and bravo for the girl who turned him in. Which Patterson is it, Dale?
Just vote for Dale Patterson and Aaron Bialon in two years. They have done a great job so far of screwing the district up.

It pathetic how Jackson, Patterson & Cramer get away with everything! As far as Jacksons slut goes, she wasnt even qualified to get the position she had. Her qualifications were laying on her back! She was probably shared between all three of them I'm sure...ITs disgusting what this area has come too!

Do you think Patterson will run again? I don't think so. I look for him to push that Prof Whitehead who attends some of the meetings. Seems as though they have a mutual admiration society. Bialon will definitely run again in order to manipulate the two women newcomers plus he loves showboating.

Look for a power struggle at the re organization meeting on Monday between Bialon and Sepesky if not Grata. I'd go with Grata out of the three.

That is all we need, a Professor from Cal U. They live in Shangri la. He would be worse than Patterson. I've been to these meetings. I think Patterson pays some people to get up and say nice things to him. Maybe he will have Professor Slap-nuts to say he is doings his best and "stay the course."

By the way, NO ONE on the board at the credit union receives a salary including Jesse Cramer who is the supervisory chairperson. Of course he was hand picked by Jackson as well as Brad Bujdos, Ken Ramsdell, and Josh Swearer. Bialon did want himself or his brother Jason nominated but no one did him the favor.
That isn't surprising, is it?
If Patterson or Cramer did not have anything to do with Jacksons and Wilsons embezzelment then WHY have there been NO Criminal charges pressed?? This is a CIVIL suit between the insurance co. and Jackson. If one of us would walk into a credit union and steal over 200,000 dollars we would be in jail, paid back or not!

Your right. Go into a bank and rob it for $100.00 and go to jail for 5 years. Be chief of BVACU and steal $260,000 and they ask you for the money back. I suppose if he doesn't pay the money back then they will file criminal charges. How about the former Superintendent using the school credit card to purchase gifts for his honey. He got to resign with full pension, no questions asked. Maybe the drinking water contains viagra at BVA.

Mind telling us which car delearship or at least where it is located? I was told by a CU board member that there is ALOT more to come and that the FEDS are involved.

Jackson still has his hands in there as long as his personally picked directors of Cramer, Bujdos, Swearer, and Ramsdell are on the CU board.

My understanding is that ON ONE other than the manager receives a salary BUT the directors receive money for each meeting they attend and of course there are the perks of wine and dining expenses.

I'm saying yes he is and so are the rest of his "boys"! As long as Cramer, Budos and Patterson are at the credit union, Jackson and his play toy will walk away from this!! Watch and see!
Shame on BVA

It is a shame the board played politics and got rid of the female manager and hired the real Jackass. The credit was doing very well when she was the manager. Jackass Jackson put the credit union and its members YEARS behind.
Convenient

Well, Bialon got what he wanted...president of the school board. The only two who voted against him were Grata and Naylor. And guess who nominated him; right, none other than one of the women he solicited to run, Ms. Ringstad Gray. And, what's this position she got, Assistant Secretary? How many secretaries does that board need? They have Frances Kopanic, Dan Sepesky, and now Kim Gray. Kopanic and Sepesky are compensated for the meetings, now will Gray be compensated too?

That $23000 for removing the railroad ties and constructing a walking trail was paid. But, according to the VI the board hasn't decided what they are going to do with that now. It was proposed by Mr. Grata at a previous meeting that it WOULD BE A WALKING TRAIL because the athletes were using Finley Road which was TOO DANGEROUS. Now they say they don't know what they're going to do. Why don't they admit the truth to the taxpayers?

Bialon as President. He has been on the board through all the bad times. Over paying the previous Architect one million dollars for a new schools that were never built, the teachers contract that is murdering the taxpayers, the Gerald Jackass fiasco. Now he has two cronies backing him(his babes)and Patterson plus he is stroking Sepesky and Nusser. Please can people wake up and smell the coffee and get rid of him the next election.
fyi

People in the BVA/Rostraver area have long been asleep ignoring the corruption which has escalated over many years. Some hope may be on the horizon in Rostraver when two new commissioners take the seat come January. I say some hope with reservations but two of these long term commissioners have done absolutely nothing positive for the BVA and Rostraver. The BVA school board is a sad joke staffed with clowns and until the public demands accountability from the school board the BS will continue. Another problem that is gaining momentum is the whack jobs that are being hired as cops. Rostraver has a couple of lil Abners who are from the sticks. Once you hang a badge and gun on a retard they are under the illusion that they own you. I hope Beck and Bottman recognize this and correct it come next year. On the bright side there are several guys on the police force who have manners and preform their duties in a professional manner! I hope these gentlemen stay on and hopefully weed out the bottom feeders.
They are all corrupt! Look at Gina Lynn from the GRC! She is actually advertising Jacksons auctions on his 3 local dumps for this weekend! I mean we all KNOW RACHEL WILLSON used BVAFCU money to purchase the Gateway Clipper Cruises for the GRC but nothing like showing your support for the embezzelers GINA! Your family must be so proud!! You know what they say, Birds of a feather flock together!!

Bialon is the only board member you can call to the carpet and talk to . He will explain the reason things are done and speek to you in an intelegent manner. Like it or not sometimes taxes need to be raised. As far as Patterson goes it looks like he will be stepping down from more than just board president of the school board, so will some of his cronies. Bialon will lead the board in the right direction ,hope speedy is the first to go.

How many meetings have you attended? Where have you been since he has been on the board? What are you talking about? Are you aware of him being on the board when: the best football coach BVA had and that was Gary Dongilli was let go because of politics which was instigated by HS principal Folmar; spent $4000 for a search team to find a superintendent, that being Charlie Chandler; tens of thousands of dollars from employee lawsuits; spent 1 million dollars for architechs for a new high school and never received the designs or blueprints; this could go on and on.

No, I don't like the tax hike especially what we were hit with as residents of Westmoreland County in this district. Furthermore, they did not have to be raised that high. He was responsible for the contract but voted against the budget...figure that one out. POLITICS!

I suggest you get the facts on his voting on the board before you commend him. Now that he has two additional "yes votes" with the two women on the board, which he asked to run, watch how things go now. He'll get rid of Superintendent Russell and Godzak will be the next superintendent. Patterson will resign and he'll propose that Kraft fill the vacancy. And then Kraft's son will be re instated on the custodial staff (his hearing has once AGAIN been postponed). How long has that been and how much longer will the district pay for him and his family's health plan? And Esquire Bialon is all a part of this mess.

Totally agree, Bialon sucks.
