Why do people have to comment like above, I know this couple, they are good guys. Joe would do anything for anyone.
I believe he got mixed up with the manager Piroli and Marlene then the crimes started. Mr WonderWho, why pick on their home, they are hard working boys, and are doing what they can.
Fixing up the yard will make the rundown part look better.
I just want to say remember they were only accused, alleged. So don't judge yet. don't be the judge, wait lets see what happens. Remember the good they have done for Rochester.

What does the appearance of their home have to do with anything? Who are you to judge? I, like Ann know these two men and they are great people and have done a lot for that community! Unfortunantly, the good doesn't get discussed and people seem to forget all to quickly the good things they have done for the borough. Do you know them personally, if not, you have no business judging them or their home as far as I'm concerned. They're innocent and I hope everyone of you that have said ignorant and uncalled for words, choke on them!

I to know these guys and they have done alot for Rochester Borough. They are really great guys don't judge these people if you don't know them I know every single one of them and they did not steal anything. Money was moved from one account and put in other accounts to pay bills, employees etc.
