State Funded Study Issues Dire Warnings – Debunks Claims By Amadio And Camp About County’s Finances

A multi-year financial management plan for Beaver County — funded by a state grant and produced by independent analysts — shows the county is in the middle of a financial crisis that must be addressed to avoid insolvency. The analysis stands in sharp contrast to public statements made by Commissioners Tony Amadio and Dan Camp,…

It’s time to clean our county government up. Sandie was correct about our funds that this county is Broke.

The county funding 400+ hours of overtime for the District Attorney’s detectives in six weeks will not help matters – and who knows the amount of overtime that will be accumulated by the end of the year. Contrast that expense with the cost of the Pennsylvania State Police assisting in investigations – a total expense of zero dollars. Perhaps it would be cost effective and financially intelligent for the District Attorney to rethink his refusal to work with Troopers in major crime investigations. Sandy Egley was right to suggest this fix months ago.

Words of wisdom from one of Beaver Countys “finest”. Maybe we the people of Beaver County will wake up now. The crooks need replaced – all the way around… They need held accountable.

Piss poor attempt at politicking for your next attempt at the DA office? Wow! I wouldn’t stoop so low. That young lady is someone’s daughter. There, but for the grace of God go you or one of us.

My comment has nothing to do with politics. There should be no effort or expense spared in bringing a murderer to justice. However, I disagree with the decision not to involve the State Police in the investigation of serious crimes (like homicide) in Beaver County as a financial matter for taxpayers. The county must stop spending money it does not have and one way to make budget cuts painlessly is to utilize the State Police.

As to the DelTondo homicide, involving the State Police as the primary investigating agency would have removed any stigma of corruption and impropriety for a jury. Instead, at this point a defense attorney has plenty of opportunities to point at disfunction by the Aliquippa PD and District Attorney’s Office to raise reasonable doubt.

I can not imagine the pain of the young woman’s family of losing her to a senseless and unjustifiable act of violence, but how horrible will it feel if the person charged with the homicide is not convicted because of questions raised about the manner in which the investigation was conducted or the motives behind the investigators.

The public does not know at this point what investigations are being run into Beaver County government and law enforcement by the Attorney General or the federal government, but what happens to the DelTondo investigation if any of the individuals involved with the DelTondo investigation are indicted or otherwise connected with corruption? This homicide needs to be investigated properly and a conviction obtained. Petty feuds, hurt egos and mistrust between law enforcement agencies should not be tolerated or permitted to interfere with protecting the community and bringing criminals to justice.

It’s facts, not political posturing. If you want bullshit, buy the Times. Top story, Scott Toadie’s report on upcoming concerts!

Stop all incompetent officials pensions ( and we know who who they are ). That would help somewhat. Why reward incompetency? We the taxpayers are being punished for their stupidity and paying for their vacations to Mexico.
