I don't even owe Canton Boro water authority CLOSE to that! And they give my landlord TOTAL right to shut me off if he gets an inkling to do so! As a matter of fact...funny story (NOT funny as in ha ha) The Canton Boro Water Authority authorized MY landlord (at an undisclosed trailer park in Canton), to turn off MY water (yes, my rent is always paid on time and I owe him nothing), and they say they can't turn it on cause it's his right to do so! NOT! I don't even owe another bill to the water company until June 6th and I owe him nothing. SOMEONE at the water authority told him that I DO owe and nobody raises their hand when asked who's responsible for this? In the meantime, a single Mom with two boys (who I've had to ship off to friends houses) can't even flush the darn TOILET! And everybody has gone on vacation for Memorial Day SOoooo...Is it ANY wonder that such a crooked company had a crooked person working for them? Do you REALLY think that NOBODY ever noticed that the money was disappearing? Who really DOES monitor these people anyhow? It's been three days without water...will be three more at least...nobody knows anything and nobody can help. Wow! Yet, A half a million dollars missing and she gets 9 months in prison...WITH RUNNING WATER!How very nice!

Without a dout, she needs to be sentanced to 12 or more years. Stealing from the town is a federal offence. Not to mention she was trusted, and she broke the trust of the towns people. Plus you can not tell me she stole half a million dollars and her husband had no clue about it. Thats some serios bullsh it right there.

Let see if I gather this correct, I searched the archives and realized I was reading it correctly. I have heard in the past Bradford County has it's own jutice system, but this takes the cake and proves it. If the law went back farther it probably would have been a million instead of a half million in 7 years. All the articles say her husband didn't know??
At the time the judge wife was caught the judge made aprox. 50K and her 27K a year. Ask yourself don't you ask your wife if she comes up with a thousand dollars to much in your bank account?? If my wife did I would sure to hell want to know where it came from. The Judge never looked as his bank account in 7 years, If anyone believes that one your crazier than I am.

Ever one why she didn't have to explain what she did with the money _hey stole from the hard working community of Canton. I hope who ever hires her in the future watches her every move. I am wondering will she every pay it back in her lifetime figuring her current wages, even if you add her dutful husband (who put his marriage oath before the oath he took when sworn in to the people of Bradford County) helping her??????????

P.S. No spell check, Can not afford one!

I just found out after 26 years of being a resident of Canton and a pool owner that you can request an outside meter that measures usage of water that doesn't go in the sewer. How can you request such a meter that isn't public knowledge.

Please don't tell me that this was the responsiblity of Mrs. Mott's too. She truly can't be held responsible for all of the errors and wrong doings of the Canton Borough Water Authority.
