I really like staffer Tom. Great person, great MASD SB elected official, and he puts a lot into our community and school board.
I am very concerned that he is going to be tainted or worse by subservient association which some persons who will come out second best in their encounters with the State Grand Jury, AG Kane, State Police, and the Juries.
I pray and hope I am wrong, very wrong. I always though that he was mayoral material. I hope that the outcome of this major investigation does change that.
IMO and unfortunately, this is one of the biggest investigations in the history of the Mon Valley and it has only started.
It is and is still ongoing. Keep calling the Attorney General with information any of you hold. Keep up the reports and continue getting into the cities business any way you can, the mayor promised transparency. If not given just keep requesting on the Pennsylvania Right To Know Website and you can ask the Attorney General for information.

Yeah he's a liar outright. Send him a copy and also see if you can get that in writing. He avoids that because he's a coward, but that's how you can call him on lying. Why are you afraid to write that down Elash? Yes he is! Lol

You can file appeals to the rights to know and go forward with civil suits on the requests. You can find out how to appeal each seperately because they had a hard time with Moriah Balingit of the newspaper. Try calling Moriah with McKeesport concerns and get to ang current reporter that deals with McKeesport. Yes, they have assigned cities so you can ask about her McKeesport findings. She told me McKeesport Elash and the mayor withheld the most important parts regarding the McKeesport police pay scam records.

In the RTK questions and Answers clearly state that ANYONE can request information!

John Elash is quite the sarcastic liar, its a form of lies apparent to most readily.

What do you want ms to do knock on every door to find Tanya Kach (then a child)

His Paul Shelly comment is classic, while he refuses comment on most else and all in the city the big mouth commented on ongoing litigation. About Paul Shelly, "he could be fired."

What about himself for DUI guilty plea conviction? No, he's a special liar for McKeesport prized by the mayor!

What about firing Daniel Carr, similar to the Paul Shelly comment Daniel is a McKeesport council member and owner if a McKeesport business The Viking bar? No, why not say "he could be fired if convicted" as he said about Paul Shelly to TV news broadcasts? Obvious favoritism one over another. But, when they refuse then you know those indicted are corrupt friends to Elash and the city by stark comparison of comment to none.

Get others involved that you meet face to face to join you and continue calling the news about your efforts you will get various staff at different times saying different things. Most of the news volunteers are useless.

Contact the newspapers and try to find anyone in these places with additional information and any direction they may offer.

Elash is very sneaky.

Don't forget, the AG can help with your questions and concerns with rights to know also. Contact them and tell them what John Jason Elash told you about no rights to know for citizens.

Usually, what happens when you submit a RTKL request is that they will respond in 5 days as required by law. In this response they will tell you it will take at total of thirty day to gather the information. You get something in 30 that may or may not be useful

Some times I hit a home run and got much more than I expected or requested. Other times they come up with incorrect reasons why they will not provide it to you. They known the reasons are wrong but they make you learn they are wrong and force you to appeal their incorrect conclusions.

Sometime the only time you can find a helping hand is at the end of your arm.

Or, you can find a helping hand at the end of your tongue and with any stray male dog. Do it yourself Jimmy and quit trying to slack off your messy jobs on others.

Didn't the pastor of the church living beside Holtzman in McKeesport tell him gambling rings are illegal?
