Atkinson warrant articles target Consentino Could lose job leading Atkinson police force

From the eagle tribune;

Atkinson warrant articles target Consentino Could lose job leading Atkinson police force
By Eric Parry

ATKINSON — Police Chief Philip Consentino could be out of a job in March — if voters approve a warrant article that would significantly change the position.

And that's not all.

In addition to heading the Police Department, Consentino also serves as the director of elderly affairs and that position could be dramatically different if another petitioned warrant article aimed at reforming the program is approved.

"There is a small group in town that has been trying for years and years to remove me from office," Consentino said Friday.

Residents who signed the petitioned articles and were contacted last week said they didn't know who was behind either article.

The article concerning the controversial police chief was signed by 43 residents. It would eliminate Lt. William Baldwin's position and create a full-time chief's job, with a salary of about $60,000. Consentino is a part-time chief, working not more than 25 hours a week for about $21,000 a year.

The warrant article directs the town to hire a full-time chief who holds a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and has 15 years service. If the article is approved in March, the town would have to begin advertising the position within 14 days after the election and a chief would have to be hired within 60 days.

Under the proposal, Consentino said it would cost the town more. Baldwin wouldn't lose his job, but would be demoted to sergeant and the town would still have to pay him his salary of about $85,000 a year, according to Consentino.

The chief said when he saw the petition last week, he called three people who signed it to ask them why they had and if they knew it would be the end of his job. That same day, he said, he received a letter from an elderly resident, thanking him for his help during the ice storm. Consentino said he was surprised to see her name on a petition that oust him from his job.

"These people rely on this program and rely on that program as it stands," Consentino said.

The article concerning the elderly affairs program would further separate that program from the Police Department, with a separate director. Under the proposed change, the program would still provide rides to medical appointments to seniors. The director would have to seek state and federal money, including Meals on Wheels and the state fuel assistance program.

The warrant article does not address how or how much the new director would be paid. Consentino is not paid for the work he now does with elderly services.

The problem is, Consentino said, without the Police Department, the elderly services program would not get the call at 3 a.m. to pick up a resident from the hospital.

"There's more to this than people realize," he said.

Resident Mark Acciard, a frequent critic of Consentino, signed both petitions. He said Atkinson has the best elderly program in the state, but it's obvious that funds designated for the Police Department are used by the elderly services program.

"The whole problem is that the Budget Committee separated the elderly affairs six years ago, but it has never been operated as separate," Acciard said.

But Consentino is confident he won't be losing his job come March.

"Once the residents find out that it will eliminate Phil Consentino as chief and the elderly program, I don't think it has a chance of passing," he said.

Two other warrant articles are aimed at informing homeowners of changes to their tax bills.

Leon Artus of the Atkinson Taxpayers Association said the town's tax cards are filled with errors and these warrant articles would alleviate problems.

Artus, who wrote those two articles, said he has helped many residents file for tax abatements and claims to have won $15,000 for a woman in town who overpaid her property taxes for 10 years.

He said most people never check their tax card at Town Hall. If the information were available on the town's Web site or mailed to residents, there would be fewer errors with tax bills, he said.

"I've been overtaxed on my property for many years and I intend to stop it," said Gary Brownfield, who helped Artus gather signatures for the articles.

Brownfield, who also heads a taxpayer association in town, said he is appealing his tax bill to the state Board of Tax and Land Appeals and intends to fight it to the state Supreme Court if necessary.

Even if these two warrant articles fail this year, Brownfield vows that this won't be his last fight.

"We're going to come back every year until we get these tax situations unified," he said.

Other towns post this information online and the cost to do so would be minimal, according to Artus.

If passed, the articles would take effect immediately.

Other warrant articles include prohibiting selectmen from using taxpayer dollars to defend themselves in court, making the Planning Board an elected body, spending $2,000 on Rockingham County Nutrition and Meals on Wheels, and increasing the veterans tax credit to $500.

I guess Phil just can't help but lie in print!

He has said many times that at night elderly call him at home! You know Plaistow does all of our dispatching after 5pm, and they dont dispatch elderly!

Phil just can't give up control. Why is it that whenever he acts badly as a chief, he always starts whining about how much he is needed as elderly affairs director?

Hey, Phil, those are two separate jobs!

And there is nobody in the PD at 3am to take the call. Be Honest for once!

Anonymous said...

I have read the elderly article, and it seems like a Godsend! It expends services, it makes them more widely available, and available to everyone of that age.

What is wrong with that?

Why would Phil fight that?

The elderly would be better served!

Maybe now they will see that he only cares about using them for political cover, and not selflessly providing services for them.

I've always viewed Atkinson as a nice little town. The chief played a role in helping make it that way. It amazes me as to how people want to fix something that isn't broke.
He has a town that has little crime activity. So he starts looking after the elderly residents of the town. All of a sudden, he's bad because of this?
They have one of the lower tax rates in southern NH. The town part of tax is only $2.15 a thousand. Are they crazy? Of a total tax rate of $14.86 per thousand, they're spending
$11.84 on local and state education. Maybe they can't understand numbers? Or maybe because they don't understand numbers and they got a few speeding tickets?
These trouble makers are wasting everybody's time. Maybe they should do a few good things like the chief does. I personally think they are just greedy people, who own expensive homes and want it all.

Anonymous said...

Notice how he admits that he asked three people why they signed.

Notice the spin about how it will cost the town more to get rid of him, how we'd have to pay the Lt. the same money if demoted.

I know I'd pay extra to get rid of him but this is still all his usual hype.

Anonymous said...

The tax rate may be low but that's because they jack up the values every year to hide the increases in the taxes.

The town has tons of crime, they just hide it from everyone. This PD is a disgrace and the only role Consentino has played is to bring disgrace to us.

Anonymous said...

Consentino: "Once the residents find out it will eliminate Phil Consentino as Chief AND THE ELDERLY PROGRAM, it won't have a chance of passing."

The Consentino fear-mongering has begun! Phil scaring the elderly by saying that the articles would eliminate the elderly program.

Consentino outright, blatantly lies, as if the warrant article eliminates the elderly program instead of strengthening it. He's such a liar. All he's doing is creating fear among the elderly, which he always does to get his way.

The Director of Elderly Affairs is a totally separate position from that of Police Chief, as separated by the selectmen. Yet Consentino lies and says that removing him as Chief, eliminates the elderly program. His attitude being that he, as Chief, IS the elderly program and any help to the elderly comes from him and not the town.
He is sure to send out a mailing to the elderly spreading his lies and his fear-mongering, once again proving his unfitness to serve as the Chief.

Consentino: "Once the residents find out it will eliminate Phil Consentino as Chief AND ELIMINATE THE ELDERLY PROGRAM, I don't think it will have a chance of passing."

Consentino's fear mongering at the elderly has begun, tying together removing him from the position as Chief causing the elimination of the elderly program.

The two have nothing to do with each other since his position as Chief is totally separate from his position as Director of Elderly Affairs, as separated by the selectmen.

Yet he outright and blatantly lies to scare the elderly. He's such a liar who uses fear to keep the elderly in line as his supporters.

This is just another reason he is unfit to be Chief: fear mongering to keep the elderly scared of losing him as Chief.

Really bad attempt at spin. Maybe this would have worked a year or two ago, but unfortunately for you and Phil supporters, the documented truth has gotten to the public.

Lawsuit after lawsuit, complaint after complaint. Phil's political kingdom is caving in because the truth is getting out.

To characterize the taxpayers as greedy people, the same ones that pay for the PD and the Elderly affairs, is laughable.

Anonymous said...

I think that we're all getting tired of Phil citing that a senior citizen was discharged from the hospital in the middle of the night and that he was responsible for that person getting a ride home and that that ride justifies his being able to be an abusive, vindictive bully as Chief.

Give us a break! What hospital would discharge a patient, an elderly patient no less, at 3 a.m. in the morning? No patient gets discharged in the wee hours of the morning.

Phil is the master of the big lie.

Anonymous said...

As quoted in the newspaper about Phil's opposition to the warrant article to improve the elderly program, "These people rely on this program and rely on this program AS IT STANDS," said Consentino.

What arrogance and ego! Phil saying that it's perfect as he now runs it and couldn't be improved on. His ego is out of control.

The article calling for the posting in town hall of information about Meals on Wheels and Fuel Assistance Programs can only benefit the elderly by making the information wide-spread and readily available. Phil doesn't want it posted because it would eliminate him as the fake provider of all services and that services only flow from him.

They don't. With a posting of state and county programs on the bulletin board at town hall, seniors and others in need could get their contact information for those services directly from the bulletin board and call directly and not have to let Phil play the distributing God.

Phil doesn't want to lose his phoney facade as the only source of help to the elderly.

They feel for no one but themselves. They are a bottomless pit that is never satisfied. They are incapable of giving and receiving true love. They think they are better than everyone else, always right and never wrong, and their way is always the best way to do anything. They love attention. They think only of themselves, but make you think they are thinking of your best interests. They don’t mind buying you lavish gifts as long as they do not have to give of themselves.

Baldwin doesn't make $85k. In 2007 he made $71,127.30 according to the Town Report.

If he is up to $85k in 2008, then he got ~20% raise.

Is there any end to Consentino's misinformation and misrepresentation?

Eagle Tribune and Phil are wrong, nowhere does the elderly affairs warrant ask for a new director, or further separation from the PD!

All it does is increase services, create more information to the elderly, and demand that service be provided to all who qualify.

Unfortunately the atkinsontaxpayers site is also
a big spin of the truth. I went there to check out all these lawsuits and you have a bunch of initial pleading, summeries, and documents that only tell one side of the story in most cases. You must post both sides of each case and let us stupid people come to a conclusion on our own. Your repeated 1 side of the story spin is laughed at by most of the town residents. You need credibility by being fair and honest and putting out all the info on these important matters. This blog and the other sites are referred to as a small group of people {which it is} and it will stay that way until the truth is published. I think more people would join your ranks if you were to ALWAYS publish all documents available to you instead of censoring what fits your needs. And lets keep the Hitler references off this blog. Atkinson Factor should be ashamed of themselves.

Ashamed? Far not my friend. One whom acts like one deserves the name. You wonder why everyone posts anon? There are too many reasons for the comparison. If the name offends you, then you know how alot of us bloggers feel about your Chief.

The chief is welcome to send his documents into the taxpayers site and they will post those as well. If he's truly inocent, he'll send the documents in, right? Then you will see the whole story, though the fact that he keeps LOSING in court should be some indication of his GUILT.

This debate is over. Phil is on his way out the door.

When you are dumb enough to publish in the newspaper that you as town employee with a badge, police chief no less, called up 3 people that signed a citizen's petition that impacted your job, well then you've just told the world you broke the law. Nothing else matters regarding who said what when and how and why they signed, blah, blah, blah, blah.

The law says you can't do that Phil. Dontcha get it? So you put in the paper you blatantly disregarded the law. We just can't have that kind of stuff going on. This is the 21st century.

There is no discussion left to be had. You're all done. And it was you're own doing. Game over.

Any of you recall the Peter Principle? Basically, it says a person will rise to the level of his incompetence. Translation, people will get promoted to a position above their ability.

Are you willing to take that chance? We've been living with it for (when did it start, the 80's) over 20 years. Do we want that cycle to start again. If the LT does a poor job we sure can't count on the BOS to take action.

The standards in the warrant are reasonable. Recommendations will be made by an unbiased panel. Time to end the cycle and bring in new blood.

The article in the Eagle Tribune states that if the Chief position becomes full time, the salary will be ~$60,000.00. Yet, Lt. Baldwin's salary is currently $85,000.00 (or $71,000.00 as of 2007.) Assuming Lt. Baldwin is on the lower end of this pay scale, can someone please explain how we can possibly attract a full-time chief with at least 15 yrs. experience and a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice who is willing to be paid $12,000.00 to $25,000.00 less than the Sgt.? Something doesn't add up here...

Anonymous said...

First of all, Billy made $71,000 in 2007, plus car, gas, maintenance, insurance, bene's, position cost the town $94,000.

Phil made $24,000, pluse TWO cars, gas, insurance, maintenance, bene's. position cost the town $42,000.

Plaistow's chief makes $68,000!

Kingston's chief makes $69,000!

Why would Atkinson's pay scale be set to accomodate aan overpaid Lt.?

NO LT. in the STATE has a $94,000 compensation package!

Anon 7:34 AM,

I understand. However, that does not answer the above question. Chief Consentino is saying the the ET article that, even if Lt. Baldwin is demoted to Sgt., his salary will not change. Does anyone know if this is accurate? If so, how can we expect to find a candidate that meets all of our hiring criteria for full-time chief, yet be willing to be paid less than the sgt.?

"And on what grounds do we simply fire the Lt.?"

In the private sector, you know, where most of us work, this is called job elimination.

It happens to good people all the time. They did their job, did their job well, but there was no need for the position any longer. Nothing personal. Sometimes the person is allowed to seek another job in the same company, but it does not always happen.

Why does everyone expect the public sector to work differently from the private? Oh, I'm sorry, in Atkinson things ARE allowed to work differently. Laws can be broken, rules violated, lies told, people threaten with absolutely no fear of being held accountable or reprimanded.

I, for one, am sick of it and want it to stop.

Anonymous said...

even in bigger police forces, people get promoted, demoted, and moved to different divisions all the time, it is part of the job.

But I dont think we should be hanging this warrant article on the Lt. fate, or chief will slide once again, for his misdeeds, because we didn't want to change the status quo.

Please note that part of Lt. Baldwins pleading claims under oath that he was re-imbursed tuition payments, and that he was guaranteed the position of Lt. which did not even exist at that time.

The town had the cancelled check for his tuition reimbursement, and the agreement on file said only that he would be considered, not guaranteed.

Hmmm, I know there is something not right about suing your town, asserting things under oath that are not true......

What is it?

Maybe this is the right time for Lt. Baldwin to be chief.

I mean we just elected a man, as President who has never led anything. Only been a Senator for 18 months before starting campaign.

Maybe it is time for someone to make chief of police 10 years out of the police academy, having only served in a small town with little crime, having taken 10 years to get an associates degree.

Maybe it is time.
