Borough council gave Dean a new contract that the borough can not afford. Shows that all the safety issues in the borough that we are all concerned about, council does not care about. It is a shame that they have priorities so backwards!

That he has, but so have so many others. Do you do the same for them? Where does it end? The borough is hurting, too much. Don't complain when taxes go up or they start cutting things. Or did you not think that far!

Heard, do not know if true.$48,000, Three weeks vacation, 14 sick days, comp time, go to seminars of his choising at borough expense, health care for him and family, personal car. That is all I heard. Probably more? He has work for the borough for a long time but we are strugling. Did the open pandoras box? Who is next or when does it stop. With this council, probably never!

You see, that is what followers do. Say what someone else has done. Be a leader and let followers follow you. Cash strapped N. Braddock can't afford that contract. Many other problems in the borough and he was under a contract for two years.

Last year the boro paid Deans salary and a safety director. To the Dean haters (Mayor/Roland) trying to make a guy and the boro look bad, why dont you look in the mirror. When was the last time the boro had a chief and now you have one, a good one. Be happy, he is a chief here for you not for personal gain, not like some people(Mayor/Roland).

So everyone on here knows, Old Politician is the Chief and he also uses many other names on here to defend himself (which btw he never really has done even a poor job at that)

He comes on here giving himself a pat on the back saying ""Good for you Dean you have been loyal to the Boro for years and at low pay !!!!""

Well, now the 9 IDIOTS on council give this guy approximately a 100K a year compensation package for a town that's almost bankrupt ! Nice job eh??

When you break it down on his salary, taxes, health care take home care and other items with sick days and holidays etc. that's what it comes in at.

Imagine a town of 4800 residents (mostly low income) with 3 sq. miles and almost broke giving out a compensation package of 100K for a Police Chief.

I could understand it completely if they had advertised the position, tested for it and had every applicant do a physical agility and a medical exam.
Now I ask, how many applicants do you think would have applied for this 100k a year compensation package with an education and training and maybe even prior Chief experience??

This LUMP of a Chief has NO education, NO management experience and has NO real experience period. He couldn't pass a written police exam, agility test, medical exam or an oral exam. Well, I may be wrong with the oral because he must have done a lot of "oral" on some of the council to get this contract !!
Not only is this LUMP a "poor" police officer at best, these Idiots give him a Chief's job with a compensation package worth 100k a year.

I think there's a lot of questions needing asked to this council.
1) What qualifications were required to become Chief
2) Was this position budgeted for 2012 and if so, what was cut to afford this position
3) Wouldn't council want the best and most qualified person for the position?
4) I'm sure council followed legal guidelines with hiring, but this doesn't mean hiring "The Village Idiot".
5) How do you justify paying the ex chief 26k a year in salary and now give this LUMP 48K base pay plus all the benefits and a pension?
6) With a contract Chief, you can hire outside the dept and not have to give a pension, so why do it this way?

There's many questions than this that the 9 IDIOTS may have to answer and justify especially now.

This council should have thought about the residents over nepotism. This is a large amount of money to put a "Village Idiot" in a management position without ANY education or training whatsoever.

I have to assume the entire police budget is about 200k a year. With that, this council could have contracted a "real" police dept to cover NB and could have abolished their current PD. It's inevitable that it's going to come down to it !

STUPID is as STUPID does. So obviously, nothing has changed !!

I honestly feel if a news media would investigate this hiring and it's shown truly how much this compensation package really is worth and shown how they hired the Village Idiot into this position without any education and NO experience in management or even classes for it... It wouldn't look so good for all concerned.

We all know the old adage : " Move em up before you move em out" ....
Enjoy yourself for as long as you can LUMP because it's a two year contract and many things can happen in two years. When this gravy train ends for you, you won't have a job part time or otherwise and then we'll see where you end up working. May be pretty embarrassing leaving a Chiefs job and can't even get a security job because of being so Obese.

You better save your money, you're gonna need it!!

Oh and "Outcast" You're an IDIOT too!

Hey Dean aka Papabear,

Why must you talk about Swissvale and them paying their Fire Chief 60k a year when you live in N Versailles? You're not a taxpayer there !!

You try and take the heat off your Fat Ass and throw it somewhere else..
Let me tell you, just because you got a nice contract doesn't mean the heat's off your Lump of a FAT ASS. It's only just begun !

We'll place you under a microscope now and watch your every move and pass that along.

Swissvale has a tax base where NB doesn't . At least they know how to run a town and have competent people they are paying larger salaries to.

What can you say about their Police Chief and Fire Chief? Their not worthy of their salaries?

Those two were the only ones looking out for the taxs payers. The others really do not care about the town only what they want to do. Not for personal gain! Why then did he write his own contract? The borough looks bad because of councils reckless spending and not doing very much. I am sure that Mayor/Roland do not hate Dean, they are looking out for the borough. What next, they opened a door they are going to have a hard time closing. Just like the deal they gave Fudd!

Grandview: I would agree that the Mayor and Roland don't hate the "Lump" They are truly concerned in my opinion about fiscal responsibility where the others are totally clueless.

The Lump fat ass loser wrote his own contract because the rest are too stupid and are clueless on what a real contract would needs so they ( council ) let the illiterate Lump hand them something and they approved it.

Luckily it's only a 2 year contract so there's plenty of time to get a few agencies in now and start looking into things. I'm willing to bet once the heat starts you won't see another contract like this for an uneducated illiterate again.

It'll come out that this was purely politics. There were a few other towns who did similar antics like this and once it came to light, The towns abruptly abolished the PD and contracted out even while still under contract.

Braddock recently went from a larger to smaller council as did homestead.
This is what needs to happen in NB. It should go to 5 members.
ONce you get a reduction on council many things could change.

Once the newspapers pick up on a compensation package of 100K (half of the towns police budget) for one person who's NOT QUALIFIED and they look into the LUMPS background.

You can laugh now LUMP but I don't think you'll be laughing too long.

How do you think you'll be able to answer to the media??
YOUR ANSWER: Because I've worked NB for so long for so little I deserve it???

LMAO Tell that to the tax payers and everyone else looking !! HAHAHA

are any positions ever posted for any opened North Braddock positions? isn't this against the law to not publish opened positions? when was the last time you ever seen a North Braddock job listing? all positions are filled under the radar by council, if you they don't know you, they don't want you, because then they wouldn't have you in their pocket

why are public works positions never posted? why was a son of a council member a former full time public works laborer, then a few summers ago there was another son of a council member that had a seasonal position created for him, and then there was another seasonal position created for a fire chief, were any of these jobs ever listed and opened to the general public for consideration? what if someone is more qualified? what if you have a more qualified person to be police chief and they aren't even given consideration to turn this town around, following the same old routine is the downfall to any business or organization

Well LUMP, why don't you show us now what policy and procedures that you have had in place since you were made acting Chie. Show us now how you deserve to hold this position. You've had a good amount of time holding the position so you should be albe to show all of us your capabilities in running the dept.

Here you have it !! An officer on the job a month only and shows you IN EXPERIENCE coming from the Police Chief. Tell us Chief , who trained this officer? What's your policy on new hires, PURSUITS and you policy on use of police lights and siren usage?

Who's with me on this one willing to bet even if NB has any type of training and or policies??

Now you capabilities as a POLICE CHIEF are going to show !!
