County clerk vendor under investigation in Essex County Posting Date: 10-01-2011
As the Oswego County Legislature prepares to release a third round of request for proposals in an effort to award a contract for text and image management services for the office of the county clerk, another county is trying to determine if its RFP process was done properly.
Info Quick Solutions, Inc. of Liverpool provides text and imaging services for the Oswego County clerk’s office on a month-to-month basis following a year of controversy over ethics violations between the company and some county employees.
It has been reported in area media that the FBI is investigating the Oswego County Clerk’s office, however, the agency will neither confirm or deny an investigation.
That’s not the case in Essex County where it has been confirmed that a criminal investigation is
underway by Franklin County District Attorney Derek Champagne.
“Mr. Champagne was assigned as special prosecutor,” a spokesperson for the Franklin County District Attorney’s office said Tuesday.
Essex County Manager Daniel Palmer, who also serves as that county’s IT director, said in an interview Wednesday that he contacted the Franklin County District Attorney’s office following a Freedom of Information request made June 11 by The Valley News.
It was the review of the information prior to release of the documents, in part, that called to attention possible improprieties with the RFP process.
A request was made for the most recent contract between IQS and the County of Essex, the RFP, and all correspondence between IQS and any Essex County official.

It's about time that sneaky, crooked Joe Provoncha was investigated...he is a miserable man and I hope Brent Vosburg is elected. I know several people who work for Joe and they could tell you stories that you wouldn't believe!

In talking to many people in Essex County, I have found that most people don't care for him, either as a elected official or as a person. He's done things his way in Etown for far too long. On election day, get out and VOTE!! Let your voice be heard. We need to make some changes in the County and getting that sorry excuse for a human being out of there should be a priority. He's NOT the wonderful person he has conned people into thinking he is...anything but.

anyone who thinks Joe is a good man, doesn't know him at all! He does nothing unless it benefits him and makes him look good. Going around telling people that he's untouchable makes him even more look a crook and a weasel. Get him out of there!! People, use your right to vote and make this change. It will have a positive effect and teach these "good ole' boys & girls" that we are paying attention.

For the first time in 20 years the people of Essex County will have a choice. On Nov 8th they can choose between Provoncha and Vosburg for County Clerk. Provoncha has been in office for 20 years and has never had anyone run against him.

The Essex County system of having only one candidate run for office is more like the "Democracy" they have in North Korea.

Over 20 years Provoncha has accumulated seven jobs at the County, all of which he has held at the same time.

Remember the famous words.

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

No official in our country should be unopposed, No citizen in a Democracy should be afraid to ask questions.

Unfortunately in Essex County, people who ask questions are attacked and crushed. Just look back at our last few elections.
yup

while I am no fan of Joe anyone who believes Brent isn't up Sue Montgomery-Corey's butt is an idiot. That woman is 1000 times more corrupt and dishonest than Joe could ever be. I think Joe will win easily at least I hope so

Isn't it funny how these little investications come out right before an election??? Joseph Provoncha is a true gentleman and I trust him. He has worked hard in all the jobs he has held. I have worked under Joe at Youth Bureau. He puts his heart and soul into whatever he does. You will win Joe!!!
Seriously

I find it funny that most of these comments are negative...(I think that says something!!) If any of you truly know Mr. Provoncha you will know that he is a sneaky,untrustworthy man that thinks he is untouchable. He trys to be-little most people thinking he is superior to them. He is known for saying and doing hurtful things to people (on a one-on-one basis, when no one else is around to hear!). He has alot of people fooled...but the joke is on him!! All of his little secrets, personal and on a business level will eventually come out! I don't know who he thinks he is dealing with, but when the people of Essex county find out what he is really like and what he does behind closed doors....he will NOT be voted in! If by chance, he happens to gain the election.....I guarantee he won't be there for long! My hats off to Brent...He is a fair, honest man who actually cares about people...not just pretends to! Oh....and the comment above about the bible........let me tell you, saying you are a Christian and that you were an altar boy and get ashes on your forhead every ash Wednesday, does NOT make you a good person!!! I wonder why he thinks so..........lol

I have known Joe for 30 years. There is noone in the county as honest as he is. He went by the book, the one printed in Albany. If there is a problem he is not at the bottom of it. If you want to sling stones throw them at Albany for making policies without the cash to back up the cost.
very funny
