Angelo is a wonderful person & did many great things for this community MISDEMEANOR is the word ...Nobody but your Blog reported anything about molesting little boys you losers the report has not come back yet ....(Pittsfield Gazette Reporting) so Why Dont you Morons Wait for the report before you go throwing stones in your glass houses ....Good Night & Good Day Folks.....
Excuse me, but The Berkshire Eagle was not even reporting the solicitation charge (in Maine, it's called 'Patronizing prostitution) until after that information (from the York County Superior Court clerk's office) was posted on Berkshire Blog.
The Eagle has had to be brought kicking and screaming to report even the basic facts of this whole matter, let alone how Mr. Stracuzi happened to be in Maine at the time and the specific events leading up to multiple complaints being filed by, yes, little boys of age 15 and 13.

Mariyln Sperling is the BEST thing that could have happen to that credit union...She is smart and has integrity..and is not part of the Good Old Boy's...Good Luck Mariyln make Pittsfield Proud!...Keep the list coming in...Someone should investigate that soldier place on w. houstontic st.....i hear they are cooking the books?????
She is gonna bring the whole credit union down, ohhh the information I have been getting about her.

As for what he was charged with, the court docket numbers
York County Superior Court (Maine)
Criminal Docket No. 05-194
Criminal Docket No. 04-2288

Police charged Stracuzzi with
Patronizing Prostitution of a Minor Class D,
Assault & Battery Class D
Criminal Mischief Class D

Two sets of charges, two different boys, two different days, boys ages 15 and 13.

The eagle knew about this years ago when it read the transfer information from the probation court. If nothing else they knew of the conflict of interest the day they saw that Stracuzzi's probation was being overseen by Nilan. But to report the conflict they would have had to report why Stracuzzi was seeking probation review in Berkshire County.

So keep your eye on the ball:
There were original charges that were heinous, they were plead down.
The real problems arose in Berkshire County when Stracuzzi didn't inform the GFCU about his "issues" (anyone seeking a job with the GFCU is asked, on paper, what they were CHARGED with as part of the background check).
The most devastating issue, more for Nilan than anyone else, is that under the new ethics laws he will probably lose his pension, go under ethics review and be fined. I am not sure if there is actual criminal conduct but there may be.
Ultimately it is an example of the good old boys network covering for their own, which includes the Mayor's office, The Berkshire Eagle, Nilan at Probation, and many members of GFCU and the community at large who have known about this for years and done nothing.
Too bad the Berkshire eagle didn't use their "investigative reporting skills" on this situation.

If The Berkshire Eagle reporter based his article on the information contained in the Berkshire Blog article, then that would be FACT, ma'am.

Because of the rise of cases wherein adults have been trolling online for sex with minors, the feds apparently beefed up the law to include crossing state lines with intent to commit the act.
At least that's the indication given by a poster here on Topix who quoted the new laws.
I'm not a lawyer, just going by what that poster claimed.

what is repulsive to me is the amount of people who knew of these horrific circumstances for so long and kept Angelo's dirty secrets while this big shot/low-life continued to live this immoral and illegal lifestyle! as well as the ones here on the forum who are still speaking about what a great guy is. Are you all kidding me???? Has he personaly helped you out so much so that you are willing to overlook the evil and disturbed person that he really is in order to keep your "buddy" on top? shame, shame,shame!
That begs the question whether Angelo Stracuzzi was employed under false pretenses starting the day in July/August 2004 when he received his summons from Biddeford Police and assumedly failed to notify the board of directors at Greylock Federal Credit Union of that fact.
Should Mr. Stracuzzi repay the Credit Union and its members the total salary (plus any fringe benefits) he received from GFCU from August 2004 until June 11, 2010?
It's a substantial sum that rightfully belongs to members, isn't it?

All the Greylock Credit Union members (shareholders) are actually the owners of the institution. You should be proud to accept a taxpayer subsidy to fund the lifestyle of a pedophile.
Nice!
I know people in Pittsfield who knew about these charges last winter and the road trips taken by the reigning "Gay Mafia" for years. How could the Board not know?
Disgusting.
Are any of those people you claim 'knew' about the road trips willing to go on the record?
What exactly did they know?

Say what you want...Angelo your a great guy...and this is just a witch hunt for you.

The morons who type negitive things...put your real name on here!

I am sure you have skeletons is your closet as well.

We as a community should thank Angelo for his hard work...it is with him and his team of professionals at Greylock...that made it the #1 Credit Union in the Country.

Angelo....your my frien and you will always will be...I am gratefull for all your help over the years.

I have a feeling this is just going to bring out a whole string of things within the Probation department etc....I think this is just the can or worms starting to open. Why would he have resigned if he wasn't guilty of anything?? Coincidence? I guess we'll have to wait and see...if he was pushed out b/c of something he didn't do then shame on the county and the eagle. Innocent until proven guilty apparently means nothing...why not change it to guilty until proven innocent. Sad but true...what is happening to this community??

Did you know that Mayor Ruberto has just given all the Department Heads in City Hall a SUBSTANTIAL RAISE. He's asking for $4500. for himself which I believe is about 5.5 percent raise. Also, it's been stated that Barrett is remaining on the payroll. Now Roberto's getting about $80,000 and Barrett's getting $60,000 (even though its been stated only 3 months for Barrett)!!! Tell me how he can justify this when we have no money!!!!
Jimmy don't gotta be justifying nuttin. He be running this town and you best be keeping yourself on the quiet side.

Isn't it great that we have a bunch of pedophiles running the system in Berkshire County, from the jail to the probation system to the bank?

When are the rest of the cards come crashing down. How is Carmen and his gay cronies still in power when they've ruined dozens of lives.

What went on at the Boys Club and Camp Russell is a horror movie - young boys abused and ruined for life. They need to be put on trial.

Isn't it a bit coincidental on both GFCU's and The Eagle's part that this story broke in the middle of the night on a weekend? Isn't that the norm when they 'have' to publish a story but don't want much hoopla about it -- report it on a Friday or Saturday!

Yes, them. I hope every one of them rots in hell. They sold out their founding member who worked her ass off to get them off the ground in favor of newcomer Angelo.

I hope they all rot in hell.

Karma is awesome.

For those of us who are GFCU members, do we have a legal right to know if Stracuzzi is receiving a "Golden Parachute" and also his pension? Someone else posted that they thought that he should have to repay his salary and benefits from 2005 until now and I fully agree.
