I agree. This town as a whole is supposed to be working together as a community to keep business local to help when others are in need. But then you get someone like this who defaces all that small towns stand for. Reminds me of good old Mr. Blundon. Look at all the innocent people he stole from. You should hang your head in shame. How dare you make your children deal with this in such a small town.

alittle FYI:when,susan first run for town superindent somebody took two campaign signs that belonged to her opponent they came up missing after dark one night..also,at one board meeting she had her family members there and when a board member tryed to talk they tryed drowning him out..and when,susan was running a friend of her,s went around town telling that her opponent took $16,000 from the town.the person that was spreading crap wasn,t smart enough to know where that money was so she spread untruths to help susan get voted in to office..the only missing mney is what susan took.the $16,000 was put into one of the many acct,s the town has.that FRIEND!! of susans has a family member that works for the town highway crew and she wants every cent the town has and she knows she won,t get it if the other guy is superindent.

Wow...is almost the only words I have. With a small town comes alot of rumors and hearsay. I believe the only people.who know the truth are Susan herself and that's about it. No mattter how much of a paper trail was left this is still a small town. Someone knew something years ago and said something to someone else etc. Why it was able to get this far is beyond me! Someone should have taken the rumors and investigated it then instead of waiting. Instead she was able to stay in her position both with the township and the bank and was able to continue her thieving ways. Tell me does anyone know if her husband knew about all of this? I myself will be closing my account with the Harrisville Branch. I mean for crying out loud for such a small branch and so few employees you cannot convince me that someone like Karen who is very bright did not catch this before hand! It makes me weary about keeping my hard earned money in such a place. Greed is such an evil thing. Greed made Susan do what she did with complete disregard to how it would affect her children in such a small judgemental town. Fortunately my kids have let me know that the kids were not being harrassed at school about it. At least the kids have heart. As for Susan I hope you fry for what you have done to our small struggling community. Your a greedy witch. Our villliage residents should be able to.walk through your home and take what we want. After all wasn't it our money that paid for your cushy lifestyle!

and she even took money from the elderlys account at the bank........but because of who she is, nothing and I repeat NOTHING will ever be done about it, but let someelse do anything like that and off to jail no questions asked. It's about time the residents of Pitcairn, stand up and demand something be done about it. And to think she works for an insurance company.........wonder if their money is missing??????????

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest and arraignment of former Town Supervisor Susan M. Smith, 39, for embezzling over $35,000 from Pitcairn in St. Lawrence County and a failed cover-up attempt. An indictment unsealed today charges Smith with Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, four counts of Offering a False Instrument for Filing, four counts of Tampering with Physical Evidence and Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument. The top count carries a maximum state prison sentence of two-and-one-third to seven years.
so here we go, she'll get away with it, screw the taxpayers again.
