IT’S NOT GOING AWAY, MURSE!
Please see the excellent comments under this post by “baffled” and “Bill.” Thank you very much.
Apparently LNP executive editor Tom Murse thinks this whole thing will quietly go away and be swept under the rug. It’s not going away, Murse, and your failure to report on this incredible waste of taxpayer’s money is beyond shocking. You’re a journalism fraud, Murse! There will be more in the next few days.
As a strange aside to the whole disability application, there was the below post by the Lancaster City Police Department involving officer Brittany Porreca. Shaki Staten is the former McCaskey sports star who recently sued the Lancaster Police Department and was awarded $40,000 because he was arrested and incarcerated for 10 months for no reason!
*** If you want to listen to council’s brief discussion and approval of [former] Lancaster Police Officer Brittany Porreca’s disability pension application click here and go to 22:44 into the video when the discussion begins. I will put in several Right-to-Know requests regarding this including requesting a copy of her separation agreement with the City of Lancaster.
** I forgot city councilwoman Amanda Bakay worked for a bank. The below is from her LinkedIn Account (click here). It’s not clear what exactly she did for the bank, but she sure should have known that MAW Communications did not qualify for a $1.5 million dollar loan from her bank or any bank. That’s why they had to come to the city! And this woman is backing Patrick Hopkins? Vote her out!
* Amanda Bakay may be the biggest disappointment in the new council members. If I recall correctly, when she was interviewed by LNP she said she was a money person and would follow every dollar. Oh, she didn’t do that with MAW.
And I should have done this before, but a quick search finds her husband on Twitter! Oh, my!
A FULL INVESTIGATION IS NEEDED!
The opening sentences from the March 9th, 2017 article on this site titled “SPECIAL REPORT FROM LIP NEWS: MAW IS TAKING LANCASTER TO THE BANK” are above (click here for the original).
It turns out MAW lied and they had never “rolled out” anywhere before! And yet, the city’s business administrator, Patrick Hopkins, did no research on MAW and said it wasn’t risky to loan them $1.5 million dollars! How is that possible?
There needs to be a full investigation and all of the council members need to be voted out and replaced! There will be much more later today.
Also, what happened to Lancaster City police officer Brittany Porreca (click here)? Following an executive session, council voted last night to give her disability coverage effective this coming March 1st. What happened to this young woman?
Please check back later today.
