Why have the posts discussing the investigation and election of county clerk, Joe Provoncha, disappeared? Is this the coverup of the coverup?

1) The clerk picked a supplier that wasn't low bidder,(he has the right to do that)
2) It was an election year.
3) Somebody tried to make that into something
4) Didn't work
5) Gotta love election years.
6) Wait till next year, all the canadates will have three heads, beat thier wives/husbands/girl friends, be seen taking bribes from Arab shieks, and who knows what else?

You are right. And these same voters get mad at you for pointing out their stupidity.

And because it happens all the time we should shut up about it and take it on the chin.

His office gave a county contract to a friendly party for $19,000 more than the low bid, costing Essex county tax payers guess what amount in higher taxes?

With your logic no one should ever be investigated. Is that what you truly mean or do you have some inside information you wish to share about Mr. Provoncho?

It was an election ploy, pure and simple..The clerk has been clerk for several years. His office selects bidders based on the county needs. Low bidder is not always the best choice, is that really too hard to understand? The election is over, soon the investigation will be over. It will no longer be news. Like the road to nowhere in Ti, keep it going, keep wasting time and money on a dead horse...(no actual horses were injured in making this comment)

Are you the investigator or the county clerk? How do you know there is nothing to it? I haven't read anywhere the investigation is being dropped and until it is I won't draw any conclusions but I will remain skeptical of possibly self-serving postings on Topix.

With the possible 63% hike in the Essex County tax levy does everyone still have their head in the sand regarding Provoncha's appearance of corruption? How much has this type of corruption cost local taxpayers over recent years?

Regarding this investigation does anyone have any information? I understand the Essex County Ethics board is investigating but I doubt much will come of that. Does anyone know?
