Isn't anyone even remotely concerned about the missing $58,000? I mean come on now I realize the election is over and now the new blood is in place and it's time for them to start lining their pockets just as the last administration did (and is probably still doing) but hey at least throw the lowly uneducated cluelss citizens a bone as to where the money went.

First of all there was never any missing 58,000. This was a false premise started by John Young during the council meeting of August 16th, 2011. You can pull up the council meeting minutes on www.cityofnitro.org and see for yourself.

John Young stoop up at the council meeting after the audit findings came out and stated that 58,000 was to large a figure to ignore.

This was a smoke screen so no one would look at the fact John Young spent money that had not been allocated for expenditure by council. So no one would not look at the fact John Young failed to report unexpended revenue from a prior year to council. So no one would look at the fact John Young had been providing false financial reports to council for more than two years.

All audit findings by the WV State Auditors over a 2 year period. Findings against the treasurer John Young.

So John Young diverted everyones attention to the police benefit fund. The auditors never said any money was missing. Only that the SOURCE DOCUMENTATION was not provided at the time of the audit. That source documentation was provided and every expenditure for four years was reviewed from the benefit fund.

If you are really interested in revenue of the city and where it was spent. You might want to ask the new Mayor Dave Casebolt to have the city treasurer give an accounting of the more than million dollars spent that was never allocated for expenditure by council.

As John Young stated 58,000 is a large figure to large to ignore. We spent 9 months reviewing this account and now know where every dollar went. But there has been no accounting of the more than million dollars John Young allowed to be expended that had not been allocated for expenditure by council.

I suggest that you go back and re-read the minutes that you so specifically pointed out as it was NOT mr. Young who stated this at all. This allegation against him has been stated many times on this site and it's nothing but another lie to divert readers from the more serious issue of the perception of missing money. Casto himself was quoted in the minutes that his name was not on the accounts so even he knew how serious this was and how badly this would be viewed by the public.

Nothing but more lies perpetuated by folks who don't really know what they are talking about.

What was the money spent on? Was some of it really spent on the police chiefs family? And if so what for? Is it still a secret?

Can you tell the lowly uneducated clueless citizens of Nitro what the 58 THOUSAND DOLLARS was spent on?

I don't think anyone said the citizens were uneducated and clueless.

There was a check registry given to each member of council. I suggest you contact one and ask them.

You also need to listen to the audio from the meeting to hear the full discussion of what was said by John Young regarding this matter.

The audio can be reviewed in the city recorders office at city hall.

But you will have to submit a FOIA to be able to go in and set a time to listen.

The 58 grand was why Rusty lost the election. Sugarcoat it, divert attention from it. That's the facts!!

I agree with you Don. And it was the plan for John Young and Dave Casebolt all along to use this to pit Rusty against his main base of support before the election.

So they would/could not be out there in front getting the community around Rusty before the election. So all the community would see is Dave Casebolt and his supporters. Which were his employer and Don Karnes primarily.

John Young made this an issue and got Jim McKay and Dave Casebolt pushing it.

There was never any missing 58,000. All money was accounted for. This did not cost Rusty Casto the election.

As has been said lack of leadership and Rusty's failure to kick John Young's a$$ to the curb cost him the election.

By the way Where did John Young spend the more than million dollars he never informed council about?

DAVE CASEBOLT WE WILL BE WAITING TO FIND OUT WHERE THIS MONEY WENT. OR IS IT STILL SITTING IN THE BANK SO YOU CAN LOOK LIKE YOU ARE ABLE TO GET THINGS DONE WHEN YOU TAKE OFFICE.

Nitroguy that is where you are wrong. As a taxpayer in the city he does work for me.

WOW when did elected officials stop working for the people. You have to be a Casebolt supporter. As Casebolt thinks he is going to come in and do things he has no authority to do.

What cleaning up to do. I thought that is what John Young has been doing. Oh right. He has just been stockpiling and spending city funds right under the nose of council without their approval.

You are the sad one. To say Casebolt does not work for the people.

Dave Casebolt does work for the residents and business owners in Nitro.

To say otherwise would mean that he does not serve the people of the city.

I know in his mind he thinks he is some kind of deity but to the rest of us he is just a little man who has accomplished little in life and now on a big time power trip.

John Young is just a liar as indicated by many posters. This man and his brother are perverts in my opinion.

I know that. Mayor Casebolt has busted his butt for the city. Nobody can argue that. I never said that he didnt work for the people. The way you speak about ur mayor is so disrespectful. The way u so distastefully demand things is wrong.U wouldnt talk to police that way. Would u? Ur so wrong about so many things. I hope u do ask him questions. The whole gambling thing is so ignorant. U have ur facts so twisted. U have gone the lazy way and taken gossip as the gospel. The whole reason for supporting castaways was under the agreement there would be no more gambling places aloud in Nitro. It was a preventative measure and guess what....it worked!! Sometimes a good leader gives a little to get a great deal for the good of the people. Sometimes negative people wont be happy no matter what. Why not try to see the good and become a positive person? Thinking positive gains positive results.

Are you for real. The way I speak about Mayor Casebolt is so disrespectful. Wow - what about the disrespect shown to Mayor Casto.

Demand things is wrong. What demands. To know where the money has been spent. This is a simple demand.

To demand bids are fair and legitimate. This is a simple demand.

The facts are not twisted on the gambling issue. He told members of churches he was against the expansion of gambling. The ordinance as it was already written would not have allowed Castaways bar to have video slot machines. It was only after the crafting by Dave Casebolt that Melody McCormick was able to get video slots which actually expanded gambling in Nitro. If Dave was against expansion of gambling the ordinance would have been crafted so that not even Castaways would have been allowed to have video slot machines.

This is not twisted. This is fact.

A good leader gives when he is getting in return. He got a business person beholding to him. Again, the ordinance could have been crafted so that not even Castaways got video slots. This is what someone who was against the expansion of gambling would have done.

Because I see Dave Casebolt for what he is a contriving, two faced liar who will say what he has to in order to get the support of someone.

And that is no leader.

There was no twisting of the facts by NItro 68. I agree with what was posted 100%.

I think what is hard to do is rewrite history and that is what Casebolt would like to do now.

But it is not going to happen.

I will be at the council meetings waiting for the questions come on out and break him down but one thing is for certain u better have u crap together!

You mean like all the Jordan haters showing up and making their accusations public.

Hypocrite.

As for being laughed out of council chambers. Anyone asking where the money John Young spent went will not be laughed out of anywhere.
