Do you think voting in a town like this or running for a seat in a town like this means anything, you're sadly mistaken. This is GLASSPORT, not McKeesport or Pittsburgh. Grow up, it could be like Munhall.
Funny, I think its worse than Munhall

The Police are well deserving of a new Station. Absolutely no one should have to work in conditions like that. That Station was condemned years ago. Its terrible and every citizen should be ashamed that we treat our Officers in that manner. Shame on us.
your nuts! the police shouln't be in that building more than an hour or so each day. should be riding around town making themselves visible to the townsfolk and the potential criminals. this aint pleasant hills and we dont need a dammed police palace! live within our means for gods sake!

"Worse than Munhall"? How so? You're not reading (other than the bullshit Cynthia posts) about Glassport council being indicted. Worse than Munhall. You're probably her too.

wtf? they dont need a 250,000 dollar taj majhal! all they need is a small building with 2 desks, a bathroom, and maybe 2 cells. they arent living in the building for gods sake. they should be out and about around the boro not sitting on the computer at the station. 250,000 dollars for a new police station is bs. eminent domain the jet computer building next to the credit union, take off the top half of the building and gut the inside out, put in the two cells/bathroom and maybe 2 desks. keep the windows in front so people can look in and see what the hell they are doing in there, pave the lot next to it for police business parking. maybe 50,000 in renovations and paving total. guess what? with the police on the main street in the publics eye 24/7 there won't be any loafing in the station or any kind of hanky panky going on down there. the boro clowns will end up building the station back behind the honor roll and we'll never see the cops. they'll all be hiding out in the new police palace. dumbest idea ever!!!
Excellent point. Our police need to be seen, not hiding out somewhere. Why couldn't they build a police station out of that building? It's right in the heart of the town, between both banks, and completely visible to anybody riding through town. Probably wouldn't cost that much either and the boro can "save" spending an extra $200,000 in taxpayer money. Makes perfect sense to me!

You make too much sense. That's why you couldn't be a councilperson in this town.

I'm kidding of course. Your comments and idea about where to put the police station are excellent. WHy couldn't our nimwits representing us come up with an idea like that? I'll tell you why. There is too much money floating around with a quarter million dollar police station versus a 50 thousand dollar one. Change orders and unexpected costs tend to find their way to certain people's pockets, that's why.

Thanks for proposing a great idea though. I;m sure it will go nowhere with the boro clowns because they didn't mthink of it.

Cynthia has a wild imagination, she's 2 cans short of a six pack. She lives in the same world as Walter Mitty. She has proven time and time again that she has no clue what's going on , just copy and paste articles that are so old . Maybe she thinks as a whistleblower ( HAAAAAA) good luck there ,I doubt she made any phone calls or send letters to authorities . She's a fraud and a liar. She's a lonely old ugly hag that her husband wont even touch her. She's been saying to called this person and that person and made phone calls for three years now.
If she'd use all that hot air on her husbands dik she's be better off.

In all honesty every tax payers name of Glassport should be on a BIG board located inside of the new police station. That's who paid for it..
Did any scum council member give up their monthly salary to contribute to the new police station. They are all greedy scum council members. Vote all scum council out next time....this fall vote all most of the scum out.
vote for a nobody..........no more scum council relatives for borough jobs and cushy positions....VOTE OUT THE SCUM COUNCIL MEMBERS BEFORE THEY BUILD ANOTHER USELESS BUILDING!

I'm all for a new police station. BUT let the scum council relinquish their monthly salary to pay for it, they voted on it, the no good for nothing scum council, all crooks and thieves on council . this town is a joke when you have thieves running it. vote em all out next time and ask them at the polls if they will forfeit their monthly salary, they will get my vote
vote all scum paid council members out.
they all have agendas and are taking tax payer money.
if it wasn't for the money they'd all resign the scum crook council members I shit out better sense than these clowns know

Seriously. What will a new police station mean to combating the growing crime and drug problem in this town? Nothing! Our town leaders think the way to address the crime problem by adding fancy things like crime watch meetings and a new quarter million dollar police station rather than more police and high resolution cameras in key areas around town. I mean, really, what in the hell are they going to put in a $250,000 police station for Glassport? A Dunkin Donut drive thru so the police can get a coffee and donut on the run? A direct line to Mama Pepinos so the police don't have to look up their phone number to call in their lunch order? Sleeping quarters for our men in blue so they won't get caught by the local newspaper sleeping in the coffee shop? This is a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money. Again. Now it's happening with Rosemary, Kowalski, and DeSue. Anybody see the common denominator of which name is involved in every controversial or stupid decision this town makes and has been for the last 10 plus years?
Mayor Bradley, Council President Kowalski, you both have disappointed me. You are no better, and may turn out to be far worse, than what we just got rid of. You have let the citizens and the voters of this boro down.
No we dont. They were out patrolling when they busted to drive by shooters. Not in the station. Rosemary needs to drop this one. Good point living the nightmare.
