There are 25 comments on the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review story from Feb 4, 2008, titled Ex-councilwoman Carlisle ordered to serve 1-2 years. In it, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that:

“Obviously the decision today is a validation, to a certain extent, that the suspicions that I had as council president were indeed true. It is an unfortunate situation and one that we can hopefully avoid in the future”

McKeesport Brewster started the downfall of the friends by teaching to reward illegal actions. If Brewster was under constant patient surveillance the DA and AG, FBI would learn the most.

He rewarded every illegal action, then set up settlements. Lou Washowhich did let a wayward officer go, but Brewster re-hired then rewarded the illegal actions.

Hello folks, do you remember me? My name is Michael Albert and I was in law enforcement with the Baldwin Police Department. Several years ago (1997), I choked a handcuffed man to death. I choked the cousin of former Pittsburgh Steeler, Ray Seals. Well, that’s what he gets for driving a Jaguar in front of all these middle-class white folks. It’s just not fair. You may want to know what I have been up to lately. Well, I am happily living in the quiet suburb of Charlotte called Indian Trail. Not too many Negros in this area to kill. SO, I spend my time harassing unsuspecting white people. It’s a change, but I think I can get used to it. I insult the wives as they walk by my home exercising. I intimidate the children as they play ball in front on my home that sits back in a cul de sac. I am still a total bully. But, if I can get away with murder, I can get away with anything.
I am hoping for a; “where are they now” special to air one day. I would love to be featured as someone who escaped a murder charge.

Too bad I got away with murder....

The budget is false as stated earlier, and one anonymous messenger eluded sarcastically to two books. Then messages responded in agreement about two books for the budget.

The politicians are not setting the example, but Topix did accurately display the raises before news verification.

(from article)
“Some of the revenue line items were overstated, and I think that will produce a shortfall next year,” Segina said.“There was a lot of displeasure with the $15,000 raise they gave (city solicitor) J. Jason Elash and the $4,800 raise to A.J. Tedesco, the community development director.

“I don't think there should have been raises for anybody if you're asking people to take pay freezes. You have to set the example,” he said.
.
Segina is correct, McKeesport has politicians that support raises with freezes, pay reductions and extra input into medical benefits expected of all other city employees. The way to even the playing ground is for workers to make the best possible use of medical benefits now. Fire Chief Lust deserves physical therapy at the very least. He is needed to help at fires in McKeesport and he needs to be supported, looking ok isn't always accurate.

The miscellaneous (over $600,000) may be from the illegal gambling machines or other dubious forms of income. Inflated expected McKeesport pre tax collection figures are wrong. McKeesport is losing population, houses burned down, and emergencies can occur. Numerous houses are abandoned, most residents are poor or middke class going below the poverty line. Any loss expectation figures for emergencies? No, because politicians need to expect more, over value business in McKeesport to bring in more to receive higher loans, if the city are eligible for loans, banks should be aware. These politicians only plan to line pockets and reward non tax paying city solicitor, John Jason Elash at all residents expense. John Jason Elash owes the IRS, gets free rent already at McKeesport city hall, and has proven to black eye the city in a negative second DUI crash at 716 Long Run Road. He was drunk driving, speeding, wreckless and careless as usual.

Senator Brewster worked at Mellon bank.

Segina should have access to McKeesport reserve amounts at all times. I suspect they will use the money secretly, behind residents and everyone's backs. He will say, after everyone forgets about the approval that the permission carries until denied for the entire surplus amount.

McKeesport council should revoke the permission with a new vote at time of need for the surplus. With McKeesport booming to get bank money on the records, remind the government McKeesport doesn't need any free handouts or loans.

McKeesport is self sufficient on its own, everything is fine. John Jason Elash and Tedesco receive raises. Elash $15,000 and Tedesco about $5,000 with all McKeesport employees a pay freeze with pay reduction askance!

Did they account for icy patches and a harsh winter in McKeesport? No, these aren't forward thinking politicians, still refusing to plan to pay themselves.

Investigate all budget figures thoroughly, because raises were given with all other employees on freeze, receiving pay reduction requests from Elash and the mayor. McKeesport employees are also asked to give more to medical benefits with benefit decreases for employees expected.

The budget cannot be correct by these careful considerations.
