Once again I have to ask. Exactly how many damn Kwidis’s does Beaver County have to hand a government check to ? Does the whole family have to be on the public’s payroll ?

2 sons Dean and Chris. One was a probation officer. Don’t know if he still is, and I don’t know about the other son. Dana is the Judges daughter-in-law married to Dean. Chris paid Chuck Betters 159K for his home in Patterson Twp in 2006. You can see where I’m going with this.

I said the same thing when they mentioned her name! They need people that are not connected to the courthouse, is it that hard to bring in someone new and actually do the proper interview process!? It’s BS!!!

It really makes people think what is it going to take to put an end to this shit. The whole infrastructure of Beaver county is perverted. This is not even corruption its way beyond corruption.

Of course they did. At what point will Amadio be pushed out by the electorate. He does nothing of merit and only helps to line the pockets of his associates. Askar should be ineligible for any county work given his performance during the Friendship Ridge sale. The conflict of interest there lacks any level of integrity.
