Dean Maynard former Superintendent said that Ron Wilga NEVER had a certificate and asked him to retire. In 2007 he ran on an vendetta mission to oust Maynard with support from Mary Ann Anderson the gift card queen who diverted $91K from Millcreek townships special education fund for her own political gain. Anderson who campaigned heavily for Ron Wilga, helped him defeat Sullivan by 114 votes. Once Anderson knew that Mancini and Sullivan knew about her illegal dealings with the gift cards she made a political alliance with Wilga to use against Sullivan.

While making close to $100K per year in a position Wilga was not qualified for at taxpayer expense he had a relationship with a male aid named Dennis Brunetti. He showed favoritism due to his sexual relations with Brunetti and did not advocate on behalf of the students that Brunetti physically assaulted. Wilga looked the other way. Problems continued for decades as Wilga protected his lover Brunetti. It was not until Wilga was gone that Brunetti was forced to leave and found to have failed too many psychological evaluations.

Wilga’s personnel fiasco continued after he became a board member with teacher Christina Silvaggi Webster.

In June 2012 a teacher reported that Webster went to Wilga’s home asking for help once her principal Stark became concerned. Last year she was moved from Tracy Elementary to Asbury after she deceived the other faculty and staff into believing she had cervical cancer. She pretended to spend long periods in the restroom and shaved her hair off while with Brunetti.

Many began to feel deceived when Webster became pregnant by a coworker’s late son at Tracy. After incidents such as teacher Leslie Herneisey who faked cancer for her own gain, concern grew. Christina Webster has severe psychological problems.

Christina Webster at Asbury Elementary isn't much of a human being if she could put her daughter in a cancer advocacy photo placed on the font of mtsd's website. When another teacher told me that it was concerning. To use her own daughter to cover for herself is deplorable after all she did before. The daughter acts as odd as the mother coloring her hair strange colors. I told my son to keep his distance

This string was taken down when these kinds of posts were made, mostly by the same two people. Copying and pasting them back again will likely result in the same action. I do not like Wilga, Brunetti or Silvagi but this salacious gossip is uncalled for. If illegal activity took place the responsible party would have been arrested. These people are egomaniacle and stupid, neither of which is a crime, or fixable. Get Wilga off the school board and move on.

Christina Webster married Dr. Michael Webster M.D. His home was for sale when he first met Christina, but she went after him, stopped the sale moved in and promptly married him. Her character is suspect especially after she lied about having cancer. If Dr. Webster didn't put a prenuptial agreement on that marriage he will be sorry he didn't.

I read about the fake cancer teacher in millcreek in the Erie Reader. They had a cartoon of her. So that is okay in Millcreek schools? I wouldn't want to be the one to explain that to people that had cancer.

Wilga won't run again anyhow.

This is all over and people are on to him. He voted to close Ridgefield and Vernondale and can't be bothered to even stay at a meeting and needs to leave early. He bullies teachers and administrators. He wrongfully threatened his boyfriend's brunessi's kids teacher and bad mouths Stoops at every opportunity. He's a bully. I'm not surprised he tried to save silvaggi's job, and she went to him. That is enough to get people talking in itself after what she did.

Kudos to you for posting. These actions are uncalled for and should be public knowledge. Those who find fault in it are obviously guilty. I thought one had to be of sound mind to teach? I guess they don't hold teachers to a high standard anymore, but then again look at Wilga. That teacher needs help and she should be getting it while under someone else's employ.

I saw her before the break. She looked like a wreck, more like she could have type II diabetes not cancer. Can't be easy relating to her peers after faking cancer and setting off that other teacher at Tracy that really did have it. I hope she learned her lesson.

Don't blame Stark for any of this while he and Webster-Silvaggi were at Tracy. She put on quite an act and conned many, but I don't believe she took money so she could not be charged with fraud. So what could they really do other than keep a close watch over her.
Why did she do it? To gain sympathy from peers, management and parents or because she wanted to get pregnant and gain sympathy from men as was said on here and quietly at her school. She made sure to let it be known about the great lengths and costs she went through in cost to fix her mouth. Who knows for sure, but she has a disorder of some kind and severe depression. She boasts about going to an establishment that offers botox, cellulite removal and other services to alleviate the stress caused by all the talk about her mental health.

Don't be so sure. Unless more pressure is put on him I think he is vain enough to run again. He has been no help at all in turning things around in the district and I think he needs to be replaced.

Lou must think he is. He keeps posting this and Wilga keeps deleting it. He's been attacking him even before he lost to cover his bases. Another bad line up Lou or Wilga. It boggles my mind why Susan Sullivan didn't tell the whole township about Wilga's boyfriend and all all this funny business or his lack of a certification. Maybe it was because of the Mary Ann Anderson suit and she feared retaliation, or because she had class. Lou doesn't have the later. He'll keep this posted until Wilga is gone.

That's the problem with you administrators. The union strictly defines what you can and cannot do with MEA members and weird teachers like this slip through the cracks. Yes the principal is to blame! I'm sure this lady went to the union and not just Wilga. Sure is nice to know my tax dollars are hard at work funding this nuts lady's rehabilitation. What about the assistant principals making over 80 thousand? What good are those people aside from phoning home that little joey was acting up. We better start getting more bang for our buck out of these people or else you'll see a WI happen here in PA.

I heard about this at work today. She actually said that? It sounds like Christina . She is only kind to people that have what she wants. She wants what she wants and will do anything wicked to get it. For her to worry about her cottedge cheese down below now that she married the money is bad news. She must be making him pay for it . Christina takes it out on everyone b/ c she's never happy and only knows how to be phony. She should be kind to her husband and stop looking at men all the time.

It is true. On http://www.teachercertification.pa.gov/Screen... Wilga only has a Educational Specialist II Secondary School Counselor 7-12 certification. He does not have a principal's certificate.

We need Becky Mancini to run. She will put Aliota out of the game and deal with Wilga. Look at all the problems Wilga brings such as Webster. I don't like to say this but Mancini was right in voting to close Ridgefield and Vernondale. It puts us a couple million closer toward a balanced budget.

No we don't! We don't need any former administrators like Wilga on the school board. The last thing he cares about is the taxpayer. He ripped us off for years taking a pay for a job and retiring on our dime. Same for Mancini. Let her be in retirement we don't need her.

Wilga was around for 30 plus years in MTSD over 40 if you count his consecutive two 4 year terms. I remember when he was the board secretary a long time ago. He does have a Masters degree in foreign languages, but it is true he did not hold the certificate.

The superintendent at the time put him as admin. at North Coast with help from the board. He was moved around often and found to be deficient in almost all the assignments he had. North Coast didn't do as well as it does now under Stoops due to Wilga's bungling, but it never needed to be a sterling beacon of success as an Alternative Ed site. He ran with Richard Millhouse, and Mary Ann Anderson's support and was in with Palermo and Kramer. They still for a block to this day.

As to Webster, she was not well liked at North Coast because she made excuses to leave the classroom and assigned brainless busy work so she didn't have to teach. I was not around at Tracy when she claimed to have had cancer, but she made reputable people suspicious so I'm inclined to believe she did lie about having cancer. She finished up her first or second full year at Asbury Elementary so her malice and lies took place 4 years ago. She should have been fired, but they can't do much about that now and she is tenured went to the MEA, Wilga and threatened. Webster is a problem of Wilga's making and he isn't about to admit he was in error. She will be watched very closely.

She is an emotional blackmailer. If Christina could lie without remorse about having cancer; then digging for gold would be a walk in the park to one such as her. This is no surprise.

To suggest that Wilga and Mancini are similar in any way is ludicrous. She went after him when she was on the board, he was afraid of her, and he shut his mouth. I wish she had stayed but I heard she didn't because that stupid lawsuit of Anderson's is still going on. I doubt Wilga will run again, thank heavens. He is a loudmouth bully. Mancini is smart, fair and knows education. She is exactly the kind of person we need on the board and I for one do hope she will run. She was right to vote to close the schools. Our finances would be millions worse if that hadn't happened, and Ridgefield was the poorest achieving elementary school, to boot. It was a hard decision and she was one who made the right call. It's Palermo, Wilga, and Kobylka who need to be gotten rid of.
