Aliquippa Mayor Dwan Walker in Harrisburg / photo via Facebook

Aliquippa Mayor Dwan Walker has refused to meet with the Pennsylvania State Police who have been conducting a series of investigations involving the City of Aliquippa and the Aliquippa Police Department, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the matter.

Sources in Aliquippa tell the Beaver Countian that Police Chief Donald Couch and Assistant Chief Joe Perciavale have both been interviewed by the Pennsylvania State Police — as have other current and former officers within the department.

Aliquippa Mayor Dwan Walker has refused requests to meet with state investigators to answer any of their questions, according to sources with information about the investigation.

Dwan Walker has enjoyed a showering of positive press by the Beaver County Times since taking office and recently told his political supporters he intends to run for Beaver County Commissioner in 2019. Walker was in Harrisburg this week at the invitation of Governor Tom Wolf to attend his budget address before the Joint Session of the General Assembly, followed by a luncheon held at the Governor’s Residence.

The Beaver Countian left messages for Mayor Dwan Walker but has been unable to reach him for comment.

The Pennsylvania Statewide Investigating Grand Jury is convening next week to begin hearing testimony about alleged corruption in Beaver County, although the precise topics to be covered are not yet clear due to the secretive nature of the proceedings.

I think he’s been to more than one luncheon. The Big House will trim him down.

Obviously he has much to hide. I don’t expect any guilty parties will answer questions willingly…or honestly.

No surprise, Aliquippa has-been corrupt since back in the 50’s. It’s about time.

Someone on Governor Wolf’s staff is going to get their ass chewed for allowing Walker to make the guest list. Refusing to cooperate with an investigation? That’s not someone you want to be seen with. That’s a photo op that Wolf will want to bury.
