Following the conflicts in this dialoge causes me concern for the fall election. How many misguided individuals will put T/A and the other supervisors (who met to circumvent proper protocol in handling personnel matters) back into office? Let's applaud our representatives who presented this matter to the Gov.
Thanks, Harvey. You have been a champion of the Middle Pen. throughout your wonderful career!

How about testimony relating to GW and the bonds? And Jay being threatened with his job if he didn't release the bonds?
How about testimony to the November 'meet and greet' meetings?
How about testimony about the lies that were told during the public portion of the Jan 2/3 board meeting?
How about testimony concerning Lacy Smith's contract having been drawn up prior to the meeting?
How about testimony as to whether ALL supervisors were informed about LS contract having been drawn up prior to the meeting?
Well Pete, you know none of that matters to the Foul 4. IT WASN'T ILLEGAL! The same old boring mantra. Bad behavior is okay, as long as it isn't illegal. Reminds me of a past president.

Pete, what if doesn't let a little thing like the facts get in the way of a good rant in favor of his favorite four. And as much as he posts his dribble, it still doesn't matter because the general public still know what happened. I mean, I've said it before and I'll say it again, If OJ beat the system, anyone can if they pay their lawyers enough.

Nah, it was because of a lazy prosecutor and a judge who doesn't understand the law.
You can't claim anything not's true, because the testimony was never given. Had the testimony come out, those four wouldn't be supervisors today.
Altemus will be asked a lot of questions, now that she is running. Any bets on how open and honest she will be?

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and guess that you didn't hear the whole story. Particularly the threatening of employees if they didn't allow favors to certain developers at the request of one MR. I believe that is called "misuse of office"

asking employees to follow the County code instead of making policy on their own, is not, I say again not, doing favors for someone, and not misuse of office, but it is their job.

I guess you disagree with the Supreme Courts ruling against adults baiting minors to break the law then arresting them. Do you even know why it was switched from a drug task force, to a gang task force force?? if you don't you don't know what's been going on here in Gloucester.

The office wasn't misused, the planning director was following the CODE. These two board members were doing a favor for their campaign contributor. Ask the former director. I have.
