You simply cannot trust anyone running the city if McKeesport.

Here's your government beggar saying he wants to solve blight but keeps McKeesport reserve money. Here is the news report that illustrates how Mayor Cherepko wants more government money to build projects for living but brings crime! McKeesport mayor Cherepko mentions he knows businesses will never be shoulder to shoulder. The reason is simple, the rise in theft from the free money to makes more HUD projects is the reason. Solution is to refuse McKeesport government HUD because police family members (NEPOTISM) with senator Brewster as HUD chairman will abuse the money!

Senator Brewster and his comic IN THE WORLD! government handout begging tactic on the news.

Rick Saccone makes the best point and his office confirmed he's against McKeesport getting any government money. Saccone said Harrisburg is wondering about this area (obviously the money abuses) by city officials in McKeesport! Harrisburg money decision makers are saying, "why should we give you any money? We're strapped too!"

McKeesport will never have businesses shoulder to shoulder because store crimes aren't handled by McKeesport police. GetGo left McKeesport because the police were sarcastic in McKeesport and failed to properly help with crimes in the stores in McKeesport! Same for several other city of McKeesport businesses, they left because the McKeesport police don't solve crimes, nor get rid of drug dealers that are known, even with detailed valid information!

Dr. Rick Sacone is honest, brilliant, and has an unbelievable resume.

If Rick Scaone's office suggests that he wants to keep his relationship with Senator Brewster at arms length, then that should be an alarm and head slap for those who adore and worship the Senator who proclaimed he was more popular than our Lord.

Very true

Sounds like he wants to never be friends to Brewster.

Rep. Rick Saccone, R-39th District, said constituents all across the state voice the same concerns.

"When I go to Harrisburg and I talk to everyone about the depressed state of the Mon Valley, the rest of the state says,'We're depressed too. Why should we fund you?'" Saccone said.

No specific plans of funding were outlined at the hearing on Wednesday.

I heard McKeesport is in for a long ride with all of its troubles to multiply. It's all in on stealing money any way they can from anyone. Theft from the school board with a school board member former officer indicted for illegal gambling. Now a council member is indicted for illegal gambling. What next? American Recovery stealing cars without the proper paperwork? They been doing that for years already with the McKeesport political consent.

The McKeesport politicians and police harass businesses in McKeesport. They can simply make excuses to not help a business with finding thieves/robbery criminals.
It's all political. Add in the extra McKeesport business tax to operate in a failing city.

What of the illegal metal scrapping, records lost conveniently by multiple McKeesport 2x DUI city solicitor John Elash?

A"You don't get to lie, manipulate the truth until you get the result you want." -The People's Court
(Nov. 6, 2013)

This is how McKeesport and other Mon Valley officials and police have operated for years. If you catch a friend or acquaintance of a Mon Valley politician or police officer doing wrong, they retaliate. It's a Mon Valley tactic.

They will lie to make any opponent to a friend seem or appear wrong. Then, they will lie. These Mon Valley officials, police officers will manipulate the truth until they get the result they want. The result is gained by lies, allegations with abuse of the legal justice system. These types manipulate the truth until they get the result they want.

They will use any and all resources to aid on another. Conscience of the wrongdoings by Mon Valley police, politically connected isn't a factor.

They will lie, manipulating the truth until they get the desired result. It should be the motto of the Mon Valley police and politicians. They will retaliate, manipulate the truth including falsify police charges to get a desired result.

The Mon Valley politicians and political connected will lie to get what they want. "The end justifies the means" may be the motto secretly. It may as well be the motto by actions McKeesport and the Mon Valley area.

Wiretap indicated current indicted Ronald Melochhi aka Porky

The local heroes to the illegal gambling are the McKeesport politicians.

Brewster must be responsible for all the illegal operations no one could count in McKeesport. After all, Brewster did claim he allegedly brought over 100 new businesses to McKeesport. All the businesses you can count are depleting.

B Wiretaps reveal talk about Mon Valley gambling
September 11, 2013 4:00 AM

Mr. Melocchi boasts on the wiretap about his connections in McKeesport with the mayor.

"It's sweet. Me and the mayor are like this, I let, I do whatever I want in that town." Mr. Melocchi said.

McKeesport Mayor Mike Cherepko has declined interview requests. But his solicitor, J. Jason Elash, said the mayor and Mr. Melocchi were only acquaintances.

(Of course, Elash never admitted up front about owing the IRS over $100,000 nor either of his caught red handed, 2 DUI charges to which he later pled guilty! He will lie and cover any information, not represent all parties (just the city hall politicians) and lie for McKeesport. He was fired by several Borroughs, and fired by a interim mayor in McKeesport at least once.)

Campaign finance records show that Mr. Melocchi contributed a total of $3,650 to Mr. Cherepko's campaign in 2011 and 2012, and Mr. Melocchi's wife donated another $400.

Police had been aware of Mr. Melocchi -- and his Glassport-based business, Back Alley Vending -- for years.

Mr. Melocchi pleaded guilty in 2001 to five misdemeanor counts of gambling devices for having machines that paid off in a Mama Pepino's pizza shop in White Oak.

By January 2002, the state police organized crime unit was talking to Mr. Melocchi, according to the affidavit. He agreed to cooperate in exchange for "consideration" on potential charges.

In 2008, state police charged Mr. Melocchi with gambling devices and disorderly conduct after discovering video slot machines in a McKeesport bar. The first charge was dropped; Mr. Melocchi pleaded guilty to the second, a summary offense.

The search warrant affidavit reveals that Mr. Melocchi met in October 2008 with an IRS agent and a state trooper to talk about the vending business.

In October 2010 state police launched what would become Operation Pork Chop.

Basic:

Police (McKeesport Pay Scam), Elash, politicians and McKeesport officials and politically connected get away with or receive minimum punishment for evidenced charges.

Citizens and the retaliated receive full penalty for false charges by McKeesport and Mon Valley police. The charges can be part of retaliation by McKeesport officials, police and the politically connected, friends, even acquaintances they decide to side with. These may hold some of the covered up information to city wrongdoings or simply just contribute to campaigns.

We understand, no law upheld for police and politicians in Mon Valley, but retaliatory false charges based on here say will be at full penalty.

Stay away from the Mon Valley, especially McKeesport.

McKeesport kept businesses out for years, nothing to do with Segina. Segina should simpy tell you like Elash did, he didn't keep any keep records. He could simply say he's not certain if a investigation is ongoing or not and refuse to comment.

McKeesport mayor warns of legal action | TribLIVE

McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko said legal action may be taken to sever ties with the McKeesport ...
http://triblive.com/neighborhoods/yourmckeesp...

Elash refused records to the FBI and the AG saying the city simply stopped record keeping. ID refuse the rogue city of McKeesport anything from helping them further destroy the city.

It's too little to late Mike, you and Brewster with your harassing law abusing police harassed any decent businesses for years!

McKeesport politicals kept the city repressed to receive government free money (to abuse). McKeesport now wants to bring business in and realizes the government money train ceased. This is the reason.

Now they have to retaliate and require information from lawful citizens businesses to harass. Keep in mind its retaliation to Daryl Segina Cherepko is committing to with his nannied Elash! Council recently voted for Cherepko to have full remaining control of the last city surplus,$900,000! Now he threatens lawsuits, those cost a lot if money.

McKeesport ran Burger King, McDonald's, Arby's and many other businesses out of McKeesport. Most say they refuse to open any business in McKeesport because the McKeesport police won't help with crime to the businesses. McKeesport police helped run GetGo (owned by Giant Eagle) out of McKeesport! The manager said that McKeesport police!

You have a special extra business tax, another problem for McKeesport. It's full of crime and they want to pilfer honest businesses, another reason for low small business count.

McKeesport remained repressed on purpose, using larger business companies for income. Now its in trouble without should to shoulder businesses that mayor Mike Cherepko admitted would never again occur in McKeesport! So don't say it wi by bullying and threatening Daryl Segina! It won't!

McKeesport is finished!

Stealing from honest businesses, kids and the ekderly when government handouts are slow is McKeesport politicians style!

'We're trying to make a comeback,' Mon Valley mayor ...- WTAE
May 29, 2013 - Rick Saccone, R-39th District, said constituents all across the state voice the same concerns.

Cherepko said, "Will Fifth Avenue be the way it used to, with shoulder-to-shoulder businesses? The reality of that is no."

(Until the recent crisis, the McKeesport plan was to remain depressed to receive government handout money. Since the handout begging failed, they need to harass McKeesport council president Daryl Segina. They have to do something themselves. The flyover ramp, not plural is graded improperly. Several large businesses pulled out after it was made. The properties are part of a corrupt area.)
http://www.post-gazette.com/attachment/2013/1...

(Letting McKeesport city solicitor John Jason Elash do whatever he wants is harmful to McKeesport.)

"When I go to Harrisburg and I talk to everyone about the depressed state of the Mon Valley, the rest of the state says,'We're depressed too. Why should we fund you?'" Saccone said.

No specific plans of funding were outlined at the hearing on Wednesday.
