HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE PAST.....2014

PITTSTON TOWNSHIP POLICE CHIEF ROBERT "Bobby" AVVISATO FIRED
SPECIAL 3 MINUTE, MID-AFTER NOON MEETING

Can you believe this?
Pittston Township Board of Supervisors had a MID AFTERNOON meeting and fired Robert Avvisato as Chief of Police. No real explanation was given. Citizens are outraged!
We are certainly not the least bit surprised.
This latest stunt is representative of how things are done in Pittston Township.


"Supervisors on Friday fired the township police chief during a brief special meeting without offering any explanation or even commenting on who will lead the department.

The meeting lasted only about three minutes, most of which was occupied by concerned residents demanding answers, and ended with supervisors departing with a declaration that a lawyer had advised them against commenting on their 2-1 vote to oust Chief Robert Avvisato, who has been on the job only about a year and a half.

"This is clearly, in my opinion, a witch hunt to get rid of me," Avvisato said afterward."

STEPHEN RINALDI ORDERS RESIDENT THROWN OUT OF MEETING AFTER QUESTIONED ABOUT HIS ROLE IN POLICE DEPARTMENT
On Monday night, September 15, 2014, a Pittston Township resident named Curt Muffley questioned former Chief of Police Stephen Rinaldi, now supervisor, about his role in the now-chiefless police department. Stephen Rinaldi appeared very angry that he was being questioned about his role in the police department, and tried to have the Pittston Township taxpayer ejected by an off-duty police office standing just outside the meeting room. The objections of other residents attending the meeting seemed to keep the resident from being ejected from the meeting.

Update: if you read the account of this in a local newspaper, you would read a version different from what this writer witnessed. The article suggested that Curt Muffley was informed by Supervisor Stephen Rinaldi that he would be ejected from the meeting if he didn't calm down. I was there, and the way both myself and another witness remember it was Stephen Rinaldi was outraged at being questioned, and he actually ORDERED Muffley thrown out. It didn't happen, though, because the crowd mumbled disapproval, and Muffley was allowed to stay.
.



PITTSTON RESIDENT QUESTIONS STEPHEN RINALDI REGARDING FAVORITISM
"Is it pick on Stevie night?" questions Stephen Rinaldi after 2nd resident complains about his tactics.

A Pittston Township resident stood up at the September 15, 2014 meeting and questioned why she and her family have consistently been threatened with condemnation of their well-maintained home whenever they complained about neglect of the other side of the two family structure, which is owned by another family. (The woman and her husband own their half). The owner of the other half, the woman explained, moved out in January 2009 and essentially abandoned the run-down home for the past six years. That absentee owner is a close family friend of Stephen Rinaldi.



Pittston Township needs an ordinance to protect owners of a half of a double home. If one half of a home with a common wall is well-maintained and the other side is neglected for decades - then abandoned - then is this fair to the responsible owners of the well-maintained and occupied half? Not at all.

SPEAK UP
Got something to say about Pittston Township or the Greater Pittston area?

Write to: Go to the meetings and SPEAK OUT. Or contact local news media.

Don't be apathetic - or afraid - about what goes on in YOUR township, town, city or borough.

Remember, the next time something unjust happens, it just might be to YOU.

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a communist;

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a socialist;

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;

Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.


-Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-984) Stated in 1945

As the famous Martin Luther King, Jr.* quote goes...
"An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere."
(*Some sources credit this quote to Samuel Johnson).
