County Controller’s Office Was Contacted By State Police After Amadio & Camp Fired Financial Admin Last Year

The Beaver County Controller’s Office was contacted by investigators with state police last year in the moments after Commissioners Dan Camp and Tony Amadio voted to fire the county’s financial administrator and oust Commissioner Sandie Egley as chairman, BeaverCountian.com can now report.

Controller David Rossi has confirmed on-the-record that he and Deputy Controller William Calhoon volunteered to be interviewed in March 2018 as part of ongoing investigations by state police into local government. The confirmation comes as Commissioner Sandie Egley once again publicly broached the subject of corruption during a speech she gave earlier this month.

It was on March 8, 2018 that Commissioner Tony Amadio made the motions to fire County Financial Administrator Ricardo Luckow and to oust Egley as chairman of the Board of Commissioners. Camp joined in ratifying the measures, and has voted in near unison with Amadio since then.

The fait accompli occurred less than one week after the Pennsylvania State Police raided the Aliquippa City Building and publicly confirmed a Statewide Investigating Grand Jury was investigating public corruption in Beaver County. It was just days after Amadio had once again made demonstrably false statements to other media outlets about the county’s finances under his administration, denying the existence of massive deficits which had been confirmed by outside auditors.
