HAVE A BACKUP!
HOW HARD IS THAT?
** A couple of quick notes today as there is so much going on:
— Haverstick’s brother, Fritz Haverstick, is an attorney at the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office.
From the LNP story, “Lancaster County DA’s office won’t say how law firm will be paid,” (click here).
They are talking about Matthew Haverstick and the Philadelphia law firm, Kleinbard, that is representing DA Stedman. The article details many of the cases they have handled for Republicans across the state but LNP does not tell you that Kleinbard also represents William Murry in his ongoing lawsuit against LNP!
And there is a viral story about Fritz Haverstick and very bad behavior that has been going around for more than a year…
— LNP has rehired reporter Dan Nephin who they laid off over two years ago. In fact, he has this morning’s lead story in print about Sears closing. Nephin is thrilled and Tom Knapp, who was fired by LNP, posted this on Nephin’s Facebook page:
* Barton retired in November and received three pension payments before the board’s ruling. The ruling means the city overpaid him by about $1,590, Hopkins said.
Barton is not obliged to return the money because the city was at fault in paying it, the board said.
From the LNP story last week, “State board says Lancaster can’t bypass firefighters’ union to tweak retirement rules,” (click here).
I wrote about this almost a year ago and it is below. City council discussed this and discussed this and Patrick Hopkins carried on and said an actuarial accounting had to be done in these situations and he changed the actuarial number from one meeting to another!
And now we learn the city is out $1,590 because of all of this. Granted that’s not much but it just shows the incredible incompetence of these people. And there is no livestream of this latest meeting available. There will be much more on that to come and the original of the below is here:
THERE IS NO VIDEO OF
LAST WEEK’S CITY COUNCIL
From the front page of today’s LNP print edition.
Oh, yes, when no one is watching corruption goes wild! So today, we’re moving from the county and DA Stedman to the city and Patrick Hopkins and more. Let the sun shine in!
Please check back later today.
