Wherever the investigation leads there are a few facts that cannot be denied. They are,1. If Sullivan was not related to Fatata, there would be no need to hire an outside counsel and spend the money. Roefaro was wrong to hire Sullivan in that job while his sister was city attorney. 2. Roefaro and his team, including Sullivan have been in office for well over a year. They, therefore have a good deal of responsibility to have properly monitered all expenditures. Grow West was under the supervision of Sullivan who was under the supervision of Roefaro. They cannot duck responsibility.

Gosh, it's almost as if the Friends and Family Plan intentionally uses non-profits to obscure the money trail.

Go back and look up some of the "redevelopment" schemes Carmen Arcuri cooked up back in the 70's and you'll see that nothing has changed. The same names are running the same scams they did back then.

when this was found out why wasnt the FBI or state attorney general just notified and let the matter go forward from there .Why was a lawer hired at 150 an hour to do their work, something stinks.Maybe the mayor figured by hiring a lawyer at first it looked like he was starting out clearing himself first ,and that may seem ok in todays political environment, but at 150 an hour and unlimited time seems unreasonable and stupid and why doesnt the media ask these questions and why dont they ask if this lawyer is still being paid after the FBI took over the investigation. How can a private attorneys work be involved at the same time the FBI is conducting an investigation ,that mix dont seem possible.THE POLICE DONT SHARE THEIR INFO WITH PRIVATE ATTORNEYS ,DO THEY?If they do what are police for.If thats the case Why dont they hire private attorneys to do police investigations. american justice reversed in this area. Wheres the media asking these questions.Where is the stupid media in this area . No their just talking about the weather andhow farmer bill in snowboro just canned some fruit for the season.

a position was held for moniitoring by Lori Calbressse. She was wonderful. She left city hall 3 years ago and the commissioner just never filled the position. Instead hiring 3 secretaries. All being paid by federal funds too. Should have filled the position to look after all this money instead of hiring your bartender commissioner.

Better to wait for things to roll out than jump to dubious conclusions.

A month ago the FBI took over this investigation. Fifty day's after he was hired, J.K. Hage is still billing the city. When do we start to get some results? How many hours has he billed for so far? When can we get this off our backs?
