Budget Cuts and Casebolt Wants Money for landscaping

When someone just keeps giving more and more evidence you just keep compiling until it is overwhelming. As one incident may be easily explained away but when you look at the totality over years then it gets a little harder to explain it all away. Casebolt and Young are just two that keep on giving and giving. So there are those documenting and documenting. Keep your eyes and ears open Nitro.  (Mar 22, 2014 | post #21)

There were never IRS fines and penalties on the city until John Young. There were never any loss of tax exempt status until John Young. There were never any blatant violation of open meetings laws until Casebolt. There were never any six figure settlement payouts for Sexual Harassment charges until John Young. There were never any payouts to employees for not paying employees according to the law until John Young. labor board laws violated in Nitro, well not until John Young. Just because you don't have people up the reporters ass trying to get stories published like Casebolt, Young, McKay, Javins and Matthews with the aid of people like Karen Fritz and Mike Clifford doesn't mean there is nothing to report. Keep your eyes and ears open Nitro. And remember those Casebolt sucks trying to convice you nothing is wrong.  (Mar 22, 2014 | post #25)

Budget Cuts and Casebolt Wants Money for landscaping

He wants to beautify Nitro only to enrich River Valley Properties which is his private employer and his cronies. If he was serious about condeming and tearing down structures he would have started with the ones actually falling down and causing a hazard and not one in the middle of town on a corner lot. Which you really couldn't even tell had structural damage. keep shaking your head and deep sighing. Because when the shiat hits the fan you will be shaking it in utter disbelief as all true believers when their people fall from grace.  (Mar 21, 2014 | post #17)

nothing to report. Of course since council didn't even vote on the budget. since the budget wasn't brought out and given to council until after the press had left and the mayor adjourned the meeting. Since the mayor is doing everything behind closed doors and locking out council. Councilwoman Laurie Elkins saw this first hand at the council meeting just held. She is the recreation chair but is being bypassed by Casebolt and his friend Linda Quinn. Quinn you might recall was the woman Casebolt wanted to have council pay her a salary for a year so she could get a fake non profit up and going. When that didn't pan out he pushed out the former CVB director and lowered the qualifications so linda quinn would qualify for the job. Now Quinn is handling all things recreation. Also at the most recent council meeting Bill Javins who is on the CVB said that the CVB would pay for something that Casebolt couldn't get past by council. This is also illegal as Bill Javins can not speak for the CVB. Also the streetscape which is a city of nitro project and the matching funds were to come from the city is now being paid out of the cvb budget. Who authorized this? The CVB hasn't John Young just stated out right in response to Bill Javins that he was taking 75,000 of the 77,000 in the CVB account to pay for streetscape. Just because he Young is treasurer for both does not mean he can use the funds of one organization to pay for another. The grape apes as you call them are far from out numbered and people are beginning to see through the fake veneer of Casebolt and his corrupt cronies. <hearty chuckle>  (Mar 21, 2014 | post #20)

Then you obviously asked the wrong person or that person lied to you. This year it was stated there would be no pay raises for year 2015. And last year the fire department was excluded from the pay raises. The agreement between the fire department and the city does not exclude pay raises as the city has money to give them. So you do not know what you are talking about. They were left out last year and this upcoming year with no raises for anyone they lose again. I have spoken to several fire fighters. Their pay scales with other cities is sliding down. So Nitro will spend the money to train and then the fire fighters will leave for other departments. With police and fire you either keep you pay up with surrounding areas or you just train them at a tremendous cost to the city and then lose them.  (Mar 19, 2014 | post #5)

Not at all since sponsors were solicited to pay the performers. Now if you want to talk about inappropriate how about Mayor Casebolt hiring his high school buddy and paying him more $1,500 per concert put on in Nitro. For doing nothing more than booking the bands. The man hired was Jim Sanders. You can find him on the Mayors facebook page. They are high school buddies. Now this is and was inappropriate.  (Mar 19, 2014 | post #12)

Whoever told you that lied. The fire departmet was not inlcuded in the pay raises last year when every other employee of the city received a raise. This year no pay raises for anyone - which means the men in the fire department are now two years without an increase. So your information is incorrect. And if someone on council or the mayor told you otherwise they lied to your face.  (Mar 19, 2014 | post #3)

You must have not been at the council meeting last night. The budget presented to council included no pay raises for anyone. In fact all budgets were cut. Last year when the raises were given it included all employees except the fire department. So you are wrong.  (Mar 19, 2014 | post #3)

Jeff Elkins shows his true colors

Oh and if you haven't listened to the audio yet on www.cityofnitro.co m you have to go an listen. Oh my heavens Jeff Elkins is a bigger moron than I ever thought. His testimony in that hearing and then his explosion in that meeting. I think the men in the department especially the one he said he wasn't working with has or will have a valid claim for harassment. I mean a department head telling a subordinate that he is not working with or going to work with them is totally unprofessional. But we are talking about Nitro and Jeff Elkins.  (Mar 17, 2014 | post #13)

Hey Mason. Word is you are Charleston Fire Fighter Craig Matthews. Now I do not know if that is true. But let's for the sake of argument say you are. Then you know the difference between someone being disabled from working any job to being declared disabled as a fire fighter or police officer from being physically unfit for duty as a fire fighter or police officer. Once you are diagnosed by not one but two doctors that you are no longer physical fit to meet the standards of a fire fighter you are put on disability retirement from the fire department. This does not mean that Jarrett can no longer have a life. It just means he can no longer meet the physical standards required for a fire fighter. You should have some sympathy. I mean with your obesity it may be just a matter of time before you are declared physically unfit for duty. Go Wildcats! And thank you Captain Jarrett for your more than 18 years of service to our community.  (Mar 17, 2014 | post #12)

Ron King didn't want the job. You can hear that in the audio just posted by www.cityofnitro.co m Mark Jarrett did test but with all the bonus points Elkins got for his seniority even with a perfect score Jarrett wouldn't have stood a chance. No Citizen the tests for promotion are not that way. You don't answer it is wrong.  (Mar 15, 2014 | post #10)

John Young IRS fines paid by city

This man has taken advantage of the idiots elected in Nitro. He needs to pay back the 1,800 paid for his fine.  (Mar 14, 2014 | post #20)

That was the attitude of Roger Wolfe in Dunbar. The Ethics Commission disagreed.  (Mar 12, 2014 | post #9)
