How does that work? At that time kuchich was the Mayor of Mckeesport!
What! This happened in our beloved City? This is more like the way MASD conducts business when they gave Jerry Tedesco's PPM the project management contract and he was not the low bidder.

Does that give them the right to rip off the tax payer????? Ever thought some people's lives was destroyed because of them? And want to see them pay for their wrong doing? Like being thrown out a home by the city mayor in the middle of winter and you just found out your wife was dying and the owner of the home had no problems with you liveing there? Ever thought some people are not afraid of the so called untouchables????????

Yes, it would qualify as one or more businesses.

The city bean counter to endear himself with the mayor may count each maggot as a separate business because each maggot has its own DNA.

Now I understand why you were sly enough to use the Boom Town handle.

Or they helped to cover up the attempted murder of my son. It's been 24 years but most of you will now pay. Ask Bishop Zubik, ask Bill Scully, ask Donald Wuerl, ask Douglas Nowicki ask the administrators at Serra Catholic High School who are arfraid or not permitted to return my call, ask Brother Ken Ghastin, ask Father Micheal LeDoux. The list is growing.

Senator Brewster, you had the opportunity to do the right thing, you screwed up.

I forgot one name, Ralph "The Snitch" Imbrogno. Hey Ralph, remember when you threatened to sue me because I wanted to talk to a Clairton Police Officer who knew the shooter who tried to kill my son. Why would you and the other Clairton officials be against me talking to a Clairton Police officer that was eventually fired for screwing a woman while on duty.

You raise an interesting concern, but do not shoot us in the foot.

Some clever young buck will convince the Internet that all users who post and search should pay a $500 license fee and be required to take a 12 week training session at $5,000.

Hush, hush on retards abusing the site. Do not throw the baby out with the retarded water.

We are smart enough to understand and work around the retard's posting.

You are behind times. Most of the machines were replaced within 48 hours. The machines were back in the Viking almost the next day. The heat was not even off. The raid fires were still roaring and raging

Dot's, I am told has not had the machines replaced because the owner now declines to harbor slots. A few raids cleared the owners mind.

Is the State Police luring them into another sting operation?

The Twin Oaks has a line up of machines and it looks like business as usual. Many other places is business as usual.

I have no idea who owns all these replacement slots.

I know when these places are full it's because the politicians helped. Keeping McKeesport on all of the government programs is what Brewster wants. This is why new section 8 housing, HUD and the CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) is always a top priority in McKeesport.

The money is a huge government handout given to cities ONLY if they are run down. The poorer the city is in disparate in need of help, the better the chances are if getting the free government money. The money is in block grants of $500,000 and higher mostly.

But, if you are a business looking for city help in funding you are faulted with extreme prejudice. I recall D. Pittman saying we didn't want to help businesses because they didn't seem appropriate or the buildings looked too aweful to help! That is the top reason why any business needs the help! To make improvements using the city and any government money gained with the cities help to improve.

Basically McKeesport receives large government chunks of money for housing Section 8 and HUD housing! The city needs to be loaded with poverty criteria (a Pre-requisite) for the city to receive the government handouts. But if you have a business these same city officials I know will refuse you if you are a business in need. This is one reason why the mayor of McKeesport and city officials want to hinder helping business in the 15132 zip code area. To keep it repressed to continue to receive rather large chunks of government free NON-LOAN money. This allows the mayor to predict businesses in McKeesport will NEVER be shoulder to shoulder, as he did in the newspaper and in city meetings.

McKeesport officials love HUD and Section 8 for the free money they bring into McKeesport. This is how some of the drugs, crimes, go ignored by the McKeesport police. McKeesport needs a tax base also, but this is another reason why delinquent tax are collected from certain residences selectively. To fit within the criteria for the city to receive the government free money. Same reason why people watch for working just enough to avoid fitting into the next higher tax bracket. To make enough money from overtime in some cases but not eghough to lose a large employee base tax back to taxes. To avoid working a too much more to not owe most of the overtime money back!

I know numerous tenants in the projects bragging that McKeesport police don't care what they do. I seen McKeesport police allow some a pass on a crime, then cite another in McKeesport for the same exact violation! It's true political favors are given in McKeesport and favors (turning a blind eye) are to people on welfare, HUD, and section 8 in McKeesport. Businesses in McKeesport will NEVER be "shoulder to shoulder in McKeesport again." Your mayor said it himself, now you know some of the top reasons why.
