Sheriff David Fires Beaver County Commissioners As Deputies

Beaver County Sheriff George David has fired the County Commissioners as Deputies, demanding they all hand in their badges.

As the Beaver Countian was first to report back in July, all three Beaver County Commissioners were legally sworn in as special deputies by Sheriff David, who then provided each of them with badges.

Sheriff David told the Commissioners in a letter dated last week that “as sworn deputies you have failed to comply with your Constitutional Oath of Office both under the US Constitution and the Pennsylvania Constitution as it relates to due process and equal protection.”

Attorney John Havey, who is seeking to represent Sheriff David in a lawsuit filed against him by the county, has previously approached District Attorney Anthony Berosh suggesting that criminal charges should be filed against the Commissioners. Havey said at the time that the Commissioners’ refusal to pay for Sheriff David to hire special council may be criminal (an assertion Berosh deemed frivolous.)

“You are relieved of any rights or privileges which may have been derived from your sworn Oath of Office” Sheriff David’s letter continued, demanding the Commissioners hand in their badges. “I expect your immediate and anticipated cooperation in this matter so that it is not necessary to proceed legally for the return of property.”

Sheriff David has also asked for the return of badges from County Solicitor Joseph Askar and Financial Administrator Vince LaValle. Although the two were not legally sworn as deputies, they were both provided badges by Sheriff David to be used as identification.

Commissioner Tony Amadio told the Beaver Countian that he has “gladly” handed in his badge. Commissioner Nichols said he has not yet turned in his badge, but intends to do so. Commissioner Spanik was unavailable for comment.

Note: In the interest of full disclosure, the Beaver Countian has released a statement regarding an incident involving Sheriff George David and this reporter.

  8. Apparently getting a sheriff’s badge is like getting candy at Halloween. If I trick or treat at Georgie’s house will he give me a badge? All the deputy’s should be proud if it’s this easy to get a badge, your leader is making you look like fools.

This is not goo,I can see why he is on, grand jury investigation that’s still digging, but I have known Georgie for ever, it Will somebody else fault but his and cry he going to get everyone, one time it worked and it want about him, but he will tell MOP, they all left him too, certain DA could have ended this a long time ago

  13. No I don’t mean the current one, though he could put a firmer hand on this, but years ago Georgie lied to judge,DA and state police in a murder trial and I don’t think the grey gods have forgot it. But that could just be rumor

    Like the rumor, he was not to be around security detail involving state police, and feds don’t want him near events, yeah soon couple dozen charges week get release on him, and he can retire early

  14. Ass hole, Ass hole, Ass hole. He was on the Aliquippa police dept, he was in school and he certainly is now. Only thing going for him is his money that he brags about.

    Investigators my ass !
