In this case the official is 100% guilty. Not to mention the countless other criminal acts that he has committed that unfortunately fall under the radar. People need to start paying attention. A good man doesn't do the things he does.

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? "Little" investigations like this SHOULD come out, especially when there is an election right around the corner. As a voter I want to know about what is going on with my elected officials. A true gentleman? Yea, okay...

I have a hard time believing you worked for Joe. I feel that way because anyone who spends any real amount of time around the crooked, phony, arrogant man knows him to be just that. There have been a few times that people have said good things about him to me and all I can say is they do not really know him. Sure, he helps this one and that one up in his little cubicle in Etown, but rest assured, all he is thinking about is getting the vote. That is the reason he does anything for anyone. Little do they know he then shares all their personal information with anyone who will listen. He is a gossip and a trouble-maker. He has done very cruel and mean-spirited things to people that are unlucky enough to be working under him. Ask any one of them...I guarantee you will hear more than you bargained for. He is an evil person but happens to be really good at fooling the general public into believing otherwise. Get out, Joey! Your time is up!

I'm pretty sure these comments on here go far beyond the current investigation. They sound very personal. They seem to come from people who have been affected by him or his actions. And no, they haven't proven him guilty YET, but it is coming. What the "good Christian" should really be worrying about is his final judgement day. Going through your life acting like you're a good, decent person and member of the church when you're actually a waste of flesh, doing all sorts of things that your maker would NOT approve of, isn't going to go over very well at all when the end comes.

All you good folks who think Mr Joseph Provoncha is a fair, honest, good man is in for a BIG surprise! One of these days, and I am sure it won't be too long, Mr. P and all of his dirty little secrets will be known to everyone! Don't be too shocked when you hear the things you do....we tried to warn you! And honestly, I myself, have seen and heard things with my own eyes and ears! He is a deceitful man, trying to play the good Christian soldier.HA! I totally agree with the comment above by "Be Thankful"....His judgement day is coming! He can pull the wool over alot of people, but there is no pulling the wool over God almighty! And one, day he will get his punishment! Too bad he just couldn't be honest with himself and everyone else. The problem is he doesn't even like himself! If he did, he come out of the damn closet and face the world! LOL...that will never happen! Anyway, as I said, don't be surprised when you find out the truth about J. Provoncha, we did try to warn you!!

I believe there are people who believe in Joe because he can be very persuasive. I've been there though - when the public isn't looking - his face gets red, his hands sweat and he "goes off". It's quite scary.
It is very hard to speak your mind in "Joe's world", his "GOD" complex has forgotten that he lives in AMERICA!
The people I'm disappointed in are the ones who have not come forward. I KNOW it's scary but nothing will change unless people know the truth.

I only know one thing, if Joe Provoncha does'nt want you to get elected, then your not going to get elected! If you don't believe me, just ask Julie Garcia or Ron Briggs! He has a tremendous amount of power, because so many people owe him FAVORS! He is always there when somebody needs something! He takes care of the people that take care of him! If you oppose him or his ideas, your usually dead meat! Too many people vote straight line, instead of the way they want to vote, or should vote! That's why Joe has been in office for so long! He's a little guy, but he has BIG feet, and he does'nt care who he has to step on! He's a POLITICIAN! As much as I hate to say it, I would'nt bet against him, even though Brent Vosburgh is a very capable adversary! It will be interesting, to say the least!!!!

i couldnt agree more with you and what you said here is so true with others in the county to. take a look at some of the crown point election signs and you will see his name on their list who to vote for. that could backfire on them though. the x politicians in crown point were in joes back pocket and we all know that.

just read in the letters to editor of the press republican how joe provancha does it all and the attorneys and everyone there depend on him. if thats the case we need to be hiring attorneys who can do their own jobs and not be depending on the county clerk for answers. they also go on to say he is very good at his job well after 20 years he should be and person running against joe is very capable of doing that job to and maybe even more the honest way. the 3 that signed the letter to the editor work for joe. also joe is getting a realy good salary to do all the things they say he is doing.

I hope that people are not afraid to make a change! Brent Vosburg is not a poor choice! He is very knowledgeable about county opperations! He is very capable, and here's the big one, he's honest! Everyone is afraid to vote against Joe, because he is soooo vindictive, and at one time or another, he has done something for most department heads out there! You don't want to be on his sh!t list! He's been there for twenty years or so, and it's hard to unseat an incumbent! Too many hard liners, and he's too well known! Maybe people know him and how he is! Anything can happen, that's why they have elections, right? Good luck Brent!

They should do an investigation on Dan Palmer and find all the facts and lies of what he has done and is doing. He is half the problem Essex County is in trouble!

Voters of Essex County ask yourself these questions: 1. Why are people so afraid of Joe Provoncha? Something is wrong. If you know someone who works or has worked for him, ask them and see what they have to say. 2. What has happened with the vendor investigation? 3. Why didn't our D.A. handle it? Could it be because her father is Joe Provonchas campaign manager? 4. Who will protect and stand up for the people of this county if the higher-ups (Supervisors, D.A., County Manager, Ethics Committee members, etc) are all going to step aside or bow down to the fear and pressure. I believe that there are some of the above who are trying to do the right thing but will it be enough? We, as taxpayers, neighbors, empolyees, relatives and friends need to unite. We need to put a stop to the bullying and mistreatment by Mr. Provoncha to his employees and to anyone who dares to disagree or challenge what he believes is his God given right of power. Maybe in the past 20 years he has done his "job" as County Clerk, but has he been truthful and honest? NO! Has he treated his employess with respect and professionalism? NO! Have I heard enough to make me believe that there may be criminal activities going on? YES! I took my own advice and I spoke with past and present employees to get to the truth and I believe what I have been told. They have no reason to lie. It is time for Mr. Provoncha to go. I'm afraid that soon those who still believe that Joe Provoncha is a good man are going to be shocked and alarmed by what they hear.

Just came back from the polls and I am so thrilled to say the I voted for Brent Vosburg!! I hope everyone that told me they were also voting for Brent actually did. So many people I spoke to about this election had terrible stories about dealings they had with Joe. I know one of his employees very well and was disgusted to hear about how poorly they are treated. They never know what kind of mood he will be in and everyone just scurries around, trying to stay out of his way. If he happens to be mad about something, anyone and everyone will pay the price. I can't imagine working in that environment and they should not have to either. He needs to go and I hope tonight's the night.
