Wow...how can this woman live with herself? How could she go to work everyday and face her co-workers, let alone just face people in general knowing what she was up to? A long-standing relationship with the community, give me a break. She was taking money for YEARS. What a POS. I don't care if she is "cooperating". She's deceitful and not much of a woman if you ask me. What a smack in the face to our community.

What a crook. I hope the county gets my tax money back. Good to see the commissioners standing up to the plate and taking responsibility.

If the U.S. postal department found the fraud and was responsible for alerting the County, why is she not been tried as a felon under Federal theft statutes.
Seems the deal has already been made to allow her to serve the minimum amount of time allowed by law for violating the public trust. County Commissioner Chronister claims “ we take full responsibility”
Is there not a question of responsibility for lack of oversight and supervision by her immediate supervisor County chief clerk/administrator Charles Noll.
Mr. Noll continues to be paid well over $100,000.00 per year by County taxpayers to ensure our tax dollars are being spent wisely. How is it possible such an act could occur over 800 times during the course of several years amounting to more than a quarter of $1 million of taxpayer funds without her immediate supervisor having any knowledge or taking any responsibility.
Why did the taxpayers elect and pay three County commissioners to oversee County government? Perhaps we should consider the election of one County administrator.
Recently we find the three County commissioners claimed they were not taking their annual salary increase, however, what they failed to tell us was they were taking that increase the following year which I find extremely deceptive.
Perhaps Mr. Noll and the three County commissioners have drank from the taxpayers trough long enough.
I am frankly outraged that Mr. Noll and the board of commissioners think we the taxpayers are that naïve. This act is a violation of the public trust, and Mr. Noll either turning his head or failing to find such blatant fraud within his own department over the course of several years makes it even more questionable.
The obvious attempts to now provide Vicky with the least penalty required for her actions, by a simple statement indicating we take full responsibility I find to be Offensive.

If you listened to the DA's statement, she's only looking at 9-16 months incarceration and an undetermined period of parole. This on top of ROR. This looks, sounds and smells like it doesn't begin and end with Ms. Glatfelter...she's got the goods on someone...why the "kid glove" treatment??? I hope the Dispatch is willing and able to dig deeper; there is more to this story and the public deserves to know.

Deceptive hit the nail on the head. Why is this not a federal case? Because Ms Vickie has dirt on Commish Riley and others in the county.The deal has been made.Nine months and probation. Resitution at $50.00 a month.If Ms. Vickie is being so coperative why won't she say where the money went? If you know her, you have already figured it out. Gambling and booze.Please remember what goes on here at election time. York Dispatch, find out why the feds are not handling this federal offense.

From the DA to the Commissioners...nothing but statements of regret and disappointment...why not outrage??? Why is no one in leadership willing to be "pissed off"? Ms. Glatfelter is being handled with extraordinary care. Why???

This is outrageous!!!!! She steals 347K and gets 9 months!!!! She should have to go before a federal judge!!! Just because she worked for the government she should not get away with it!!! I lived in York for 59 years and if I or anyone else did that we would go to the stateor federal penitentiary. WHY SHOULD SHE GET 9 MONTHS!! This is a disgrace for York County!! But what the hell they are all government employees!!!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

Mr. DA, from what your figures present,she was making $55,732 at her real job,plus $50,000 at her Embezzlement job, which totals $115,732 per year.
Now suppose that $50K, times 7 years =$350.000,was put into a 2.02 % CD for the 84 months that she had it ...we the taxpayers would now have $402,500.
Also Mr. Smith, the lottery tickets she and her cohorts were saving for an office winner. Did that break any laws by lowering this winners tax obligation to the lottery? by submitting fraudulent loosing tickets that he/she did not actually pay for...Sorta like cheating the Seniors out of some of the cash they rely on...Oh that's right she was cheating all of us,seniors included.I worked for the County of York for almost 30 years,retired in 06" and have not had a COLA since.Why? The County is out of money. Commissioners,can you adjust our COLA's now and forward us the money now that you have found Miss Vickie piggy bank.My share would be $1979.00,
Thank you,Harry
