So not only is our county mis-budgeted by $118k, it now stands to lose more money and the bank continues to illegally invest the money? Way to go Nick!

It's ok. Bolon will continue to take the money as long as money is being made. If it ends up being a loss, she will start pointing fingers. Oops, she is already doing that while still taking the money.

What you people need is the morning after pill.

Give it a rest. Atleast the money is still there and i'm sure someone's working on a resolution. Even if it means putting the money somewhere else.

I disagree with you bug. The voters need to have their say. This is absurd. The whole purpose of the investment committee is so that the Strabala incident would not happen again. Nick failed to hold the required meetings and look what happened...then he with held the info until after the election...we elected Nick to be treasurer then, not Hoppel, not Halleck, not Datillio. This was Nick's error...

Those other 3 are part of that committee and are just as much responsible as the other guy.

They all get a good salary and this finger pointing bs is just how we got to this point.

Strabala would have never happened had these so call prre ma dona's would had been doing their jobs back thebn

And the last thing a responsible citizen should do is turn a blind eye to ANY illegal activity...

What does the commissioners' work schedule and pay have to do with the illegal investment of county money? Nick chaired the committee. Nick was responsible for the county's money. Nick allowed the illegal investment of the county's money. Nick withheld information regarding the illegal investment of the county's money until AFTER the election.

I'm floored by people advising to "let this go". It's time the "sleeping giant" awakens and takes back the govt. politicians work for us. Not themselves, not their party but for the people.
