John Jason Elash is out on Topix unleashed again.

City reputation clause into effect.

Elash's service agreement outlines his scope of services as defined by McKeesport's Home Rule Charter and adds a personal conduct clause that charges him to uphold the city's reputation.

John Jason Elash should get several months house arrest. Ankle tracking bracelet a must! Add a no computer use Topix message posting clause.

Don't doubt it one bit. And to think this city's voting 'sheeple' still believe the hacks are in it because they love McKeesport.

Keep your eyes open , it's the season to have sidewalks, driveways, roofs, etc. done at certain people's homes & businesses . Strange thing about it, the contractors look exactly like those that do work for the 'Housing Auth.' & other city projects. Great way to save on labor & material.

Use gub-mint money & let the taxpayers foot the bill . No wonder they 'love' McSleazeport.

Is everybody watching ? We have new 'connected councilman' don't forget. They have to gettin some freebies for sellin us out. Keep your eyes open.

Is there a difference ? Please let us know if there is any part of the machine that is not 'connected' or doesn't get 'oiled'? We are all ears here.

Of course City Employees should live in the city. They get to live close to 'Daddy' who got them their jobs here.
We pay their wages, so let them pay their wage , school & property taxes here, like we do.
They don't like it, let them get a job on their own - where they live.
Work here, live here. Suffer like everybody else.

Does anyone know if the solicitor still lives in the City?

Another potential coverup for him by his council friends and the mayor.

Yes.. actually he does. No matter though, it is not a requirement of his position to live in the cess pool known as the Port. He is free to reside anywhere he chooses.

What I don't understand is why he would want to live or work for a place like the Port? He is way better than that. I will never personally work for anyone in the Port, and I will NEVER pay 1 Dime of any tax to the Port.

Rumor has it that he lives in the city with a person who submitted the last Financial Campaign Report for the mayor.

This means he should pay earned income tax to the City for his earnings from the city. However, Mikey will take care of this like the free rent.

Yes - except the former city solicitor. Will he move back when Mr. Chereko hires him as the solicitor or city administrator.
But the former city solicitor will have a difficult time selling his mckesport home with the ton of liens against it.

Good point. But that seems to be his problem.
If you don't pay property taxes & School District taxes here , you should have no business being involved in policy making decisions. Just goes to prove, the MDC just don't care where their licky boys come from as long as they get their way.
Follow the Home Rule Charter & Hatch Act.
Politicians & employees need to live here.

Senator Brewster's and Mike's MDC are endorsing a candidate for Controller that has not lived in the City for many years. He lives with his daughter outside of city limits. He is a seasoned carpet bagger.

How do you Senator explain another above the law move to enhance your power choke on our beloved City?
