Latest Hire By Sheriff David: Son Of Secretary’s Fiancé

jobs

A secretary in the Sheriff’s Office has convinced George David to hire her fiancé’s son as the county’s newest deputy.

Sheriff George David is now in the process of hiring Mitchel Himes, who is the son of secretary Jackie Springston’s fiancé.

Jackie Springston was one of the secretaries who previously gave statements to the Pennsylvania State Police confirming Sheriff David had once referred to women in his office as “c-nts.” She had also filed statements with the county’s law department complaining about how women in the Sheriff’s Office were treated by George David.

After Sheriff David’s acquittal at trial, the Beaver Countian published an article about a new round of complaints filed by the secretaries of his office with their union. A short time later, this publication received a puzzling statement from Springston, denying that any such complaints had been made. “Really????? Because We didn’t have a clue about anything being filed,” she wrote.

The Beaver Countian again confirmed with sources in the Sheriff’s Office, officials with county government, and sources within the SEIU that the secretaries in the Sheriff’s Office had indeed made a new round of complaints. That’s when sources told this publication that Springston had brought her fiancé’s son into the office just the day before the article was published, reportedly telling Sheriff David that the young man “was a really good boy” and “would make a great deputy.”

Courthouse sources say Mitchel Himes was in the Sheriff’s Office today getting his uniform.

Sheriff David has a documented history of apparent strategic hires to quash various controversies he has ignited while in office.

In April of last year the Beaver County Chapter of the NAACP began investigating allegations that African American employees were being passed over for full-time jobs by David, that the Sheriff had regularly been heard using the “n-word”, and that pants belonging to former Aliquippa Police Chief William F. Alston Jr. (an African American man) were hung in the Sheriff’s Office in effigy (Alston died in 2008 and had previously run against David for Sheriff).

Sheriff David responded by hiring Beaver County NAACP President Willie Sallis’ nephew as a deputy. Inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office by the NAACP ceased.

Other hires made by George David since he took office include Representative Jim Marshall’s brother-in-law, Representative Rob Matzie’s brother (from part-time to full-time), First Deputy Jay Alstadt’s daugther, and Judge Richard Mancinni’s nephew. David also hired his political crony Myron Sainovich to be the department’s Solicitor after he was fired as County Solicitor by the Board of Commissioners for illegally billing taxpayers for amounts above his yearly salary.

Earlier this month David promoted controversial deputy John Joe Fratangeli to lieutenant.

      @Tom Armstrong…We can only hope, Tom…we can only hope! We have to be more vocal and productive between now and election time to get him out of office!!! Keep up the good work, John Paul, we need your input on what is going on down at that crazy Courthouse because the Beaver County Times sure as hell isn’t doing it!

      @Megan: That word is reported upon, because it was a central part of a story. If you don’t like reading about or hearing the word, get rid of the Sheriff who uses the words, because he will not change. I’m sure the secretaries would thank you. Saying c— or threatening to kill people, this guy is bad news, and that is where the indignation should be directed, especially at the next election. Consider the real shock and disgust that word creates, and you will get a very good insight into the profane, dysfunctional mind of this guy.

    This county is so corrupt. They even get rid of their hard working loyal employees to hire their “friends” for political gain. Please get this man out of office and stop the corruption! Hard working people are losing their jobs and income because of this man.

    Personally, I think it’s important to keep the corrupt Sheriff David and the rest of the Beaver County Courthouse in the press to remind everyone how power has been abused in Beaver County. I think there should be an article every day. Only the voters have the power to change things in the Courthouse, if they would wake up and use it. And frankly I am enjoying the fact that I am no longer a County employee and can say whatever the Hell I want without fear of reprisals.

    The work atmosphere in the sheriff’s office must be great; like a smoldering volcano ready to pop at any time.

    A secretary files a complaint with other secretaries and then denies anything is is wrong, AFTER David hires fiance’s son? Haha.. if it wasn’t so sad, it’d be funny. THAT ought to make for some friendly coffee breaks among the girls.

    And of all the political hiring listed, I’m surprised at Willie Sallis. I thought better of him.

    Please forgive me, because I’m not sure, but doesn’t government employment require the job be publicly advertised (even if the person is already picked)? Now that I think of it, I haven’t seen ANY county government jobs listed in the BC Times.

    Why is this considered news? There are so much more important things going on in beaver county. This would not be an article if the sheriff was not involved. This is no different than someone referring someone to there boss who is qualified for a position. Which he was qualified. Also, you have put up false information on your blog numerous times. You need to start backing your stories with facts instead of going off of what someone else tells you.

      Like what? Please name all the important things going on in Beaver County? If corruption is not important enough, maybe you should spend your days buying grave yard plots

    What is really important is the whether this amount of nepotism is exercised by the Sheriff. As for name calling in some of these comments, it says nothing about the issue and everything about your lack of character. There will come a day when the cartoon character who calls himself a Sheriff and who thinks he’s some type of celebrity will find himself alone and regretting the type of person he is / was and his only decision will be “which weapon should I use?”

    Ann, I hope your resume contained more of the proper punctuation than your post did. I suspect there are obvious reasons you didn’t get the job.

    @ bill Tomlinson

    Agree to a point I’m so tired of hearing about sheriff….also

    But the dumb prick keeps doing things that are reportable……. like this

    @, Megan carpenter ….I hate the word to as son, brother of three sisters and father of two girls.
    But why hasn’t our party publicly came out and declared political cross hairs on him?

    Questioned those women that serve Secretary?

    , or those who serve as deputy?

    I’m appalled that there’s not been a really outside for women against him….

    Maybe some strange bed fellows in party have to deep history?

    Shame on you Jackie Hill or Springston, or Himes oh yea there was another husband too but what ever, QUIT TALKING OUT BOTH SIDES OF YOUR MOUTH, your no better than the other two ditsey bleach blondes in your office. Commissioners tell me how the sheriff gets all this money to hire people? You have got rid of people to save money so you say, but he keeps hiring with my tax dollars that you approve. Throw some more tax dollars out the window….because that’s what I am going to do with my vote….

      The commissions have the power to limit the sheriffs activities by cutting off funding, They can force the sheriff’s office back to their traditional roles. Cut the funding. We do not need 24 hour sheriff patrols. My God they are not even permitted to investigate things. Warrants, courthouse security and prisoner transports that’s it. They could cut the staff in half if they wanted to

        Over glorified mall guards! Take their guns and police cars from them, they DON”T need them. That is what the security check point is for when you enter the court house, to make sure that there are no guns coming in the…..Oh, wait, that doesn’t work either. Some moron mall guard let a gun go thru the security check point because he was trying to hit on some babe. My bad. This hire brings the deputy count to somewhere around 50ish. That is a lot of nepotism from one department.

    David is like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps on going. And I guess the people I thought were fine upstanding citizens can be bought as easy as John Joe, Jay, Tom O., Tom T. and the rest of the sheep. I feel sorry for any person who sells their souls to David because they have to pay for it in the end. Bring plenty of hot dogs and marshmellows for the next life.

    I would like to know if there is a limit for the number of deputies that can be hired. Or, is this guy able to conscript a standing army if he has enough of our money?

    Why doesn’t Rob Pratte interrupt his praise of Beaver County to report this story or any of the unseemly stories about Beaver Country?

      Stiller, Rop Pratte had David and his attorney on the radio the other night. I tuned in late, 9:45 pm and what do I hear? Yep Sherrif David telling Rob what a fine job he does. Pratte is a pupped, he’ll say anything anybody wants him to say.

        @BCBob: “…and his attorney…” Myron Sainovich…a constant Guardian Angel behind the crime figures in Beaver County. Just another attorney, a pro bono publico donating his services to the poor, to the charity cases, to the downtrodden and for the unjustly accused. George David and his loyal deputies wisely don’t make a move without his learned counsel. Very smart, my Sheriff, to have him present on the broadcast in case you make a slip of the tongue. With Myron’s advice, you could conveniently contend that “nothing happened”, maintain plausible deniability, and have Rob erase the tapes. If that fails, blame Rob for your miscue, and throw a party to celebrate it.

    Apparently those who state “you just have it out for him”, or…..”isnt there something else to report on”, or…… “quit picking on the Sheriff, he was found not guilty”, are MISSING THE GODDAMN POINT! Are you that blind to what is happening here? Sorry, but to me its apparent…….I cant understand how you dont see wrong in whats contained in the reporting here. Dont get me wrong……..I think its entertaining as hell, but jeez dumbasses, read between the lines! I could give 2 shits what John Paul does. How he lives his life. What he had for lunch. I DONT CARE. And I’m catholic! What I do care about is the shit these holier than thou assholes in power continue to get away with. And trust me…….my tax money needs to stop going to this kind of “fuck you taxpayer, I’m better than you” asshole with blatent disregard for their job and the people they serve. So keep writing about this “trivial, picking on the sherriff” bullshit, because those who have half a brain understand why and appreciate it.
