P J Thief had Guard

The new treasurer in Pt Jefferson, Don Pearce, was extremely friendly with the thief, Jackie. They were friendly during working hours as well as after hours & weekends. He was often seen walking her to her car across the bridge & chatting. He may have not known then, but he was probably guarding Jackie while she cleaned up & pulled a "one for you, two for me" plan with the country club golf & tennis membership money. Boy, she really conned him, but I'm sure it was easy to do because he is so stupid!! I hope the village of Port Jefferson realizes what a big mistake they made in choosing him as treaurer, and gets rid of him. Didn't he do enough damage in Roslyn. Throw the bum OUT!!!

Sounds like Roslyn all over again. I'll bet the $88,000.00 is just the tip of the iceberg. She gave in to easy and paid them back. Once the DA looks back even further (since she has been working there) they will surely find a lot more that we have not heard about. I'm glad they are prosecuting her because most times they just fire the culprit and push it under the rug so that they are not embarrased.
More than Roslyn

Roslyn isn't the only place. Check out this quote:“Miller, Lilly & Pearce failed to take even the basic steps to ensure that District funds were properly accounted for and safeguarded. The firm let the Manhasset taxpayers down,” Hevesi said.
I hope this isn't the case in the village of Port Jeffeson. Sure sounds like Pearce didn't do his job again or took the basic steps this time either. I heard there is probably alot more than the 88 grand. She better not get away with it and they better watch the finance officer and make sure he knows what he is doing (even though he is a cpa.)
Why in the world

I really need some clarification, please. Can anyone tell me why in the world the powers that be in Port Jefferson hire someone with a history like Don Pearce has? Unless they lived on Mars, they had to know his track record with Roslyn. All you have to do is google Miller, Lilly & Pearce and voila, there it is. It is quite an eye opener, check it out. It was just a matter of time that it happened in Pt Jefferson. You asked for it, and you got it.

Pearce was not involved in our scandal, it was Miller. I don't know Pearce, but I also don't agree with "guilty by association".
