Mayor calls Parking Attendant a “Thief”

Now that’s rich…. King Lie-A-Ton (known city gas thief) having the nerve to call city parking enforcement attendant Walker a thief, after a Price Chopper employee called the city, and requested a sting be set up, which later found that Walker was pilfering change from the meter collection, and turning it in for cash at the Edwardsville Price Chopper according to the WBPD.

 After all Leighton was pilfering gas from the city pumps for years, and nothing happened to him.

Well unless you call the taxpayers billboard something.

After nearly $4,000 went missing, and nobody at city hall noticed. One has to wonder if not for the actions of the honest hard working Price Chopper employee, would Walker have ever been caught?

Is anyone minding the store in Wilkes-Barre City?

Lie-A-Ton's exact words: “I am extremely angry and disappointed that a city employee was found stealing government funds,” Leighton said. “As mayor, it is imperative that I can trust all city employees to perform their duties in a legal and professional manner. The actions of this particular individual are not a reflection of all city employees. The City of Wilkes-Barre has good, trusted employees and this incident should not tarnish the image of the law abiding individuals who serve the city.”

HA HA HA HA: "As mayor, it is imperative that I can trust all city employees" he said, How about As mayor  it is imperative that we (the taxpayers) can trust YOU!!!!

FREE Vacation Time

Wake Up Wilkes Barre has learned that City Controller: Kathy Kane, and City Councilman: (Bobblehead) Bill
Barrett are in Austin TX, soaking up the sun, and posting their escapades on Facebook, while you the taxpayers, pay for their lavish trips. Trust me they fly FIRST CLASS, and NEVER stay at the Motel 6….. Then there is a meal allowance, even though the National League of Cities provides meals.

For those of you who don’t know, Wilkes-Barre City has a long standing tradition of sending city officials, (several at a time) on taxpayer funded junkets, known as the National League of Cities.

Now don’t get me wrong many, many other cities also send city officials, such as Scranton, and Hazleton, should they choose to go (BUT on their OWN dime).

YOU the Wilkes-Barre City Taxpayers, year after year, pay for this utterly useless junket (well to the average taxpayers it’s useless). To the corrupt city official, it’s a chance to vacation in the host city, (this year Austin, TX), make friends in high places, all FREE, well FREE for them.  These trips usually cost the taxpayers thousands each year, and to date, nothing notable has resulted. Well except the bill.

Is it really any wonder the city has gone from $60 Million to $130 Million in debt under this corrupt regime?
