So taxpayer money is going to off-site road improvements at Buckeye for the benefit of a convicted felon? This is an outrage! What are township officials going to do?
The thought that any tax dollars are going to be spent to fund anything that will help these crooks prosper is an outrage! This man is guilty, just as guilty as the other two! And the fact that he gets to walk away, just because he pleaded guilty and supposedly paid his share back?! That doesn't change the fact that he was as much of a part as they were! He knew what was going on, just the same as they all did!! He did the crime and he should have to be held accountable! But, to place this guy up as some Business hero because of what they're doing now is ludicrous! How much of the money funding their business is legit? How much came from the kiting scheme? They claim they're not affiliated, and so would any criminal in the same situation!
Stoneburner claims they have no affiliation but that's not what he was bragging about in an article published in the Vindicator on Aug. 19, 2007.
A total waste of taxpayer money to fund criminals. From the sweetheart deal they got with the port authority to grant money to fund road improvements. Public officials need to be held accountable for allowing this to happen.
And the chamber puts these guys on a pedestal? What an embarrassment to the community.
