Craig Matthews councilman City of Nitro.

Oh my talk about corruption. Has anyone even asked him about the 85,000 misused/misappropriated while he was over the Charleston Fire Fighters Union Dues. How did this corruption get covered up.

Actual investigation and payout - and he still has a job. For real. And he has the nerve to talk about others and their conduct. Perhaps Mr Matthews has never learned that those in glass houses shouldn't be throwing stones.

Perhaps this is why he and his fellow compatriots Dave Casebolt and John Young think people misuse and abuse the public funds - because that is what they do.

Mr. Matthews Charleston Firefighter. But his original journey had him attempting to become a police officer. He was employed by the St. Albans PD (where by the way a little mouse told me that no one liked him - imagine that).

But when he knew he wouldn't be able to pass the WV State Police Academy Fitness Exam he became a firefighter.

I am still wondering how this heavy weight ever passed the physical endurance test to become a firefighter.

If you want to see what I am talking about please go to facebook and to Mayor Casto's facebook page to see photos of him - he looks like he hasn't met a donut he didn't like.

Talk about a possible corrupt situation - say what you will about the Mathes boys in the Nitro PD. But each got their position on merit and both in excellent shape.

This dough boy couldn't save anyone from a burning building. He gets winded just crossing the street.

I can not believe the Nitro readers on this board are not very concerned about the missing/misappropriated money from the Charleston Fire Firefighters Union Dues.

If this was about Nitro - the board would be lit up.

This man is on council and pointing his finger at those who have done nothing wrong but do their jobs.

It is time to have that big ole finger put down and for a mirror to be put to his face.

Craig Matthews were you really on record saying how concerned you were about the 58,000 in the police benefit fund.

Are you just as concerned as you were about the Charleston Firefighters Union Dues?

Just asking - cause that is just one of those things that makes you go HMMMMMMM.

That was a good one Mike. I got a chuckle out of that one.

I saw this headline in the Charleston Daily Mail a few moments ago:

Credit union employee accused of writing $101,296 in checks to boyfriend

The moment I saw this headline my first thoughts were of Councilman Craig Matthews. I am not sure why but it was my first thought.

So funny I had to share. I am so glad to be back from vacation.
