Hope this turns out to be untue. Mr. Exposito has been a fine public servant--much of which was as a volunteer firefighter/dept. chief; for many years.

Very odd, MacD--the story seems to have disappeared. Even a search didn't bring up anything.

He has admitted to using the credit cards with the hopes of paying them back before anyone noticed. Frankly I'm shocked this hasn't come up sooner. I know there were questions on where the money came from for his daughters very lavish wedding. Suspicions have been mounting for years.

Lavish wedding? The charges only mention about $3,000 used for a washer, dryer, and diapers. Maybe there's more to come.

I think if they do more investigating, they will find a lot more but who knows?

Well--You're right; the investigation will be ongoing. It sounded like he admitted to the credit card purchases (maybe there are other things yet to be named). Any credit card items should be extremely easy to track.

It's ashame about this, to my understanding from many people that know Mr. Exposito he is a really nice guy, but that does not excuse the crime that he did fraud is a serious crime, and by the sounds of his daughters statement she knew he used the fire departments cards for her and to me it makes her just as guilty as her father.

Barb, I think your absolutely right. Why is she not getting charged with accessory to the fact?

Sadly, it seems now, in hindsight, that he was one the more HONEST of the supervisors, which doesn't say much for our township! After reading of the new sewer proposals, I wonder WHERE the public job of "sewer manager", or whatever exact title supervisor Vito Y. was crowned with, was posted, and WHAT the qualifications for such a $38,000 annual salary job would be. From what I have read, the new "sewer czar" will be responsible for photographing the sites where residents have installed their connection lines, then charging them $75 to do so. I guess we were better off with the first thief then the current 3. Do they think we will be so grateful that our monthly bill will be ONLY $65 (rather than $123+) that we will overlook this incidental little fact, or do they just feel the residents of Mahoning Township are stupid?

He obviously did what he did, but he was an excellent public servant through his many years leading the vol. fire dept. He probably was also a good twp. supervisor, although I can't speak directly about that. His record seemed to one of keeping the resident's well being at heart & he worked very hard at it. He certainly faltered which is sad for everyone.
