Why doesn't the media check into Leone's connections to Roth-Marz architects?

Isn't Leone a paid "consultant" for them?

Isn't there a ethical violation here? Hasn't Roth-Marz been awarded every county government and school contract for the past 15+ years with no exceptions? Weber Murphy Fox architects was the low bidder for the 911 center 2 years ago and Roth-Marz got the contract anyways, weird huh? There are many other examples, why does Roth Marz get every new school contract with no competition? Is this the best use of the countless Millions dollars Erie has spent on our schools because Roth Marz told Barker to tell us we had to do it. Is there something here?
Roth-Marz also did the ill fated $500,000 renovation of Divecchio's offices. This seems shady, I'm sure you could find some former employees to fill in the details.

Why is it that when it was discovered that one of Roth Marz's bookkeepers was caught stealing from the architect's company, they did not press charges? Could they have had something to hide?

Nothing new here, this has all been in the paper in the past, who will connect the dots...

No one will connect the dots...cause the Attorney General (Corbett) and the Auditor General (Wagner) both want to be Governor...and you don't get to be Governor if you make enemies with those who can fund your campaign........

Roth Marz designed the intermodal center on the waterfront. The building leaks, the HVAC systems don't work, and it contains a lot of unusable square footage. Overall a badly designed building.

Time to give the work to someone else.
WTF

If the HVAC doesn't work you blame these architects? Who installed it?

1st: All Bids on County jobs are open to the public...if there was something shifty going on it would have been brought up then. and if they got all county jobs they would have gotten the convention center, Erie Art Museum, etc.(check your facts)
2nd: Fiore realy doesn't have that much play at Roth Marz!
3rd: Charges were not pressed because the woman had mental issues and it was a small amount...what would have been the point!
4th: Why not give it to WMF? DIOGENES...ARE YOU A FORMER ROTH MARZ EMPLOYEE? IS THAT WHY YOU ARE SO BITTER? MAYBE YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE LEFT.
funny thing happened

It's all a conspiracy? Major cover-up? I think the ethics board looked at this with the godfather working their and found that he cannot vote for anything related to his employer...if he is still employed with that place.
wrong

we found a sore spot
1. people do complain, nothing happens. the convention center and art museum were not run by the county so Roth Marz did not get them. They did get the parking lot nearby though.
2. fiore is a paid marketing consultant of Roth Marz
3.google this subject it was not a small amount of money.
4.WMF did complain in the paper and nothing happened.

Sounds like Roth Marz is worried about former employees. I am not one, this is a small state, this has all been in the newspaper.

blah blah blah...sounds like "wrong" and "diogenes" have an axe to grind with RothMarz. This is what happens when you live in a small city. Corruptions, nepotism...wink-wink, nudge, nudge politics. People have complained about these people and nothing happened? I wonder why? Maybe there is no smoking gun? Do you think county coucil would "let" fiore vote on anything related to rothmarz???

Barry Grossman will get rid of all that even though Mifsud and Fiore Leone are good friends. Barry's cabinet will be interesting. He better get someone sho is responsible enough and even keeled to take over when he goes down with illness. Mifsud - the one who threateded a police officers career because his wife was given a ticket (deservedly)...I wonder if pervert Murray will get the Public Defenders' job - he jumped Divecchio's ship faster than you could blink an eye. Probably not, because Judy Lynch is on board with Grossman and she is the one that got rid of Murray in the first place before Logue and Divecchio hired him back. Ian's nickname is "squirt" around the office. That's squirt as in Thunderbird Motel squirt

What I'd like to know is what is so special about these architects that all this crap is written about? It's all politics. First Grossman will have to win the election in November. Who cares who is buddy-buddy with fiore? People give him too much credit...

That isn't the point. The point is, in all the years since the change to home rule, the "voters"??? in that district haven't been able to find a single other person to represent them on county council. Not one. There is the problem. Its not Leone. Its who keeps sending him.

I find myself bad-mouthing the politicians all the time. God knows they deserve it. But ultimately it's the moronic voters who constantly return Leone and other incumbent scum back into office. So while we bash the incumbent....it's truly the voters who send the scum BACK into office again. In turn, the re-elected scums fornicates us again for another 2, 4 or 6 years ! People wake up....get rid of the incumbents.

didn't Roth Marz send county officials to Allentown or something like that a couple years ago on a scouting trip to observe community colleges, and R-M picked up the tab. There was a big article in the paper.

If the community college happens who do you think will get the job?

I agree with you. If people are not happy with the people who are in office, why keep voting them in? We need better candidates with name recognition in Erie because if the right person was running, maybe the incumbents wouldn't keep being voted back in.

Fiore Leone always abstains from any vote dealing with Roth-Marz but I can assure you that Whitey Cleaver and then councilman Charlie Augustine enjoyed some hefty golf outings at Roth-Marz expense. Let's admit it. We got the worst coucil there is because we don't believe in term limits and they get real comfy in their little thrones and help each other out. I can't believe the Scott Park attendee Joe Giles keeps getting elected from the stoopid people of the Lower Eastside. I thought you people had some pride. An Afro-American would be better than Giles.

In response to your comments I'd have to ask you, how does one achieve "name recognition" ? Even if one does have the name recognition that doesn't mean that the bulk of those who vote recognize that individual. In turn, a challenger who may me the greatest thing since sliced bread, has to spend money he/she doesn't have to advertise their names and their challenge to the scum incumbent. Most local patriots trying to make a difference don't have the money needed to oust an incumbent. So, in my belief, if the voter doesn't wake up and just push the voting button of a challenger, things will never change until the incumbent dies or retires. It's a sad, sad, sad situation. Oh, and remember this....democracy is just mob rule + one. Do your best to remove incumbent politicians and we'll all be better off.
