Are they calling Brewster by his nickname? That's all CDBG will do and without Bethany B. they are going to misuse the CDBG money!
Please government don't give McKeesport nor Jim Brewster anymore money. He's keeping his area repressed to only collect handouts from tax payer government money.
Waste of a city McKeesport and it will never be the way it was ever!
Brewster is nothing more than a hand out looking to make bridges to nowhere as he did that once already! He places himself on all these committees for any government or given perks.

Agreed . Look at the wasted tax-payer dollars along Walnut St. for one , a sidewalk to nowhere & pretty blue benches that nobody has ever sat on in 10 years . Plus the wasted ' Fly-Over' bridge that 75% of the trucks cannot clear . A low-boy trailer would never clear it & God bless anyone on Lysle Blvd. when a vehicle comes sliding down it during icy weather . Let's call it the MDC Moronic Bridge . Typical Democrat - wasting tax-payer dollars to get some recognition on something that does nothing .

Did Brewster receive any contributions from those who worked on the bridge and sidewalk? Enough said!

ASk Tedesco the PPM who built the schools in Mck, what politicians did he give money to, to get the bid? Then change or orders that added another 750K to the project.!!

Public records reveal that Tedesco contributed to then Mayor Brewster. Brewster controlled the MASD school board and have several city employees on the board. This is a violation of the Home Rule Charter, by JB is always above the law.
