Triumverate of Corruption- the return of the Neo Fascisti

Evidently expanding the BOS to five members did not result in a reduction in the level of corruption evidenced by this board. The Board is still dominated by The paragon of corruption Mr. Consentino, and his elderly elected minions, Grosky and Baldwin.

Mr. Grosky seems to have happily and willingly settled into his role as Consigliere, to Consentino's wannabe Don. He enthusiastically perverts and twists the law, in reasonable sounding letters which he fires off to any board or committee that has the temerity to offend the Bully in Chief.

The latest hapless victims of Mr. Grosky's legal perversions is the Conflict of interest committee, and by extension the Budget Committee. It is Consentino, Baldwin, and Groski's position that ONLY the Selectmen have authority to add, remove and insert amounts on line items within the budget during it's preparation. This is a CLEAR violation of RSA 32:5. None of these three Neo Fascisti, care. They only demand OBEDIENCE. The State budget law clearly states that ONLY the budget committee has authority over the preparation of the budget. The Selectmen have none beyond, consulting on their budgetary needs.

This began with the latest in a long and storied history of conflict of interest complaints against Mr. Consentino. The very man who has been the subject of so many of these complaints, and Ordered by Rockingham Superior Court to obey the town conflict of interest ordinance on multiple occasions, not that he ever OBEYED said order. In fact he was found in CONTEMPT OF COURT for disobeying the Order of the Court. Notable for a "Chief law enforcement officer" and "officer of the Court". In this case Mr. Consentino violated said Order AGAIN, by voting upon a matter that affected his wife. Yes, this has happened numerous times prior, and he has been told numerous times he can not do this, but He just does not care what the plebians think. He is Don Consentino! This is HIS TOWN! However, in this case there were three complaints and given his  long track record of ignoring the law, the conflict of interest committee recommended removal. This is where it gets interesting.

The LAW under which the conflict of interest committee was established is RSA31:39-a, and it clearly states;

"31:39-a Conflict of Interest Ordinances. – The legislative body of a town or city may adopt an ordinance defining and regulating conflicts of interest for local officers and employees, whether elected or appointed. Any such ordinance may include provisions requiring disclosure of financial interests for specified officers and employees, establishing incompatibility of office requirements stricter than those specified by state law or establishing conditions under which prohibited conflicts of interest shall require removal from office. Any such ordinance shall include provisions to exempt affected officers and employees who are in office or employed at the time the ordinance is adopted for a period not to exceed one year from the date of adoption. The superior court shall have jurisdiction over any removal proceedings instituted under an ordinance adopted under this section."

NOTE the emboldened text. Now had the Neo Fascisti on the BOS actually followed the law, they would have referred the question of removal to the Superior Court, but, no they could not do that, given the history of these matters before the Court, it is likely that the errant accused sexual predator fired for cause, but elected Selectman might be removed, NO, can't have that. INSTEAD, these men a majority of whom have personal relationships with Consentino, and should have therefore recused themselves to avoid "the appearance of any conflict" as stated in the Ordinance, voted instead to ignore the law, and ignnore the recommendations of the conflict of interest committee.

Consigliere Groski's estwhile defense of Mr. Consentino presumed that he merely "knew" the potential School Board candidates "as he knows thousands of other residents". An outright LIE. Tell us Mr. Groski, were "thouands of other residents" involved in lawsuits with Mr. Consentino? Were thousands of other residents litgants suing Mr. Consentino for violating their rights? Were thousands of other resident victims of Mr. Consentino's abuse of authority while police chief?  Consigliere Groski also claimed that MR. Consentino's vote on benefits, did not matter because his wife would  have been eligible for them anyway. This "did not matter" defense was employed by Mr. Consentino in 2005 in Rockingham Superior Court and failed it test them, as Mr. Groski should well know.

This resulted in the conflict of interest committee discussing engaging in litigation against the Selectmen to force them to follow the law. They attempted to ask the budget committee for a $100 legal line in their budget. The BOS went nuts. They are attempting to punish the COI committee by claiming their  non public discussion of this impending litigation violates RSA 91-A:3, while the BOS uses this very same provision to shield its conversations about legal desires, which should be public. They have chosen to punish the Budget Comittee by refusing to approve a minor budgetary overexpenditure which AT THE VERY SAME MEETING THEY DID OVER 40 TIMES FOR OTHER DEPARTMENTS! They claim that the Budcom needed permission to overexpend a line item, something that they never demand from any other dept.. WHo remembers when Consentino overexpended his cruiser lease line item 8 days after town meeting to buy a Ford Explorer without budgetary or selectmen approval?  And to top it off, These corrupto crats forget the BudCom DOES NOT SPEND MONEY!!! ONLY  THE SELECTMEN DO! If a line item is overspent, it is the selectmen who spent it by signing the vouchers.

The PROPER course of action would have been for the BOS to refuse to engage in any discussion of removal and forward it to the Rockingham Superior Court,

The PROPER course of action with regards to overspending a line item would be to treat the budcom in exactly the same manner they treat the PD,

but, this board so rarely does the "right" thing.

Might want to watch how Atkinson, NH Selectmen threaten, bully, and
 intimidate any taxpayer, who catches them in lies during public meetings.
 They pretend to call cops for removal as a threat. Funny thing is taxpayers
 waited for the police to come arrest them, only to find out the police were
 never called. Watch as pervert habitual sexual harasser X police Chief “Conman” 
who was fired as police chief and Director of Elderly Affairs for
 sexually harassing a female dispatcher under his command, thanks God for
 being called a liar on public TV. Just too funny if it wasn't so serious.
 
This man should have been made to register as a “Sexual Offender”
had the situation been handled correctly, but for all intent and purposes
 got “swept under the carpet”
 
This man has cost the town’s insurance company hundreds of thousands
 of dollars in settlement fees and increased policy premiums for years.
 When will town’s people finally get rid of this liability? 
Things haven’t changed with a five member board.  It’s no wonder that we
can’t keep an insurance provider.  Time for this pervert to be “Put out to Pasture”
 for dereliction of duty.  We can’t afford his type of liability.  Be sure to watch all
the way to the end.  It isn’t that long.

Speaking from personal experience, To file for injunctive relief with the Court,SOLEY to get your governing body to do their job, is a monumental task. I filed a petition for injunctive relief solely to get Consentino to obey the town conflict of interest ordinance in 2004. It should have been a simple matter with no need for Court. He had voted as selectman, on his own request as police chief to withdraw money from the donation account.

To any reasonable person this was a violation on it face. When I told Phil he could not do that his response was "I can do whatever I want, this is my town". I took my complain to the COI committee, Chairman Dick Smith looked at me and said, "But it is the Chief", I asked why that mattered and he simply repeated himself. They voted that there was no conflict.

I appealed their decision to Rockingham Superior Court. Judge McHugh had some rather harsh words for Phil. The point was that this attempt to right a wrong, with no personal benefit took over 1 year, numerous filings, having to listen to Phil openly slander me at selectmen meeting during that year, Listen to him publicly lie about me on camera, suffer being followed through town by him, having my wife and son followed through town by him, Having my vehicle inspected 5 times during that year personally by Phil whenever he happened to see me. Having him file frivolous citations against me. And suffering his verbal threats.

THIS is what you have to look forward to if you file an action regarding him while he has a taxpayer funded microphone each and every week. Not to mention the legal fees, and time.

If you are lucky his minions will not vandalize your home and car, as happened to me. All because you told a bully with a badge that he could not violate the law.

Mark Acciard said...

As to the content of the article, the author is correct and Mr. Groski is wrong. He should have listened to Mr. Morse. RSA 32:5 vests SOLE authority for the budget preparation in the Budget Committee. The Governing body's only contribution to this process is found in RSA 32:17

" 32:17 Duties of Governing Body and Other Officials. – The governing bodies of municipalities adopting this subdivision, or of districts which are wholly within towns adopting this subdivision, shall review the statements submitted to them under RSA 32:4 and shall submit their own recommendations to the budget committee, together with all information necessary for the preparation of the annual budget, including each purpose for which an appropriation is sought and each item of anticipated revenue, at such time as the budget committee shall fix. In the case of a special meeting calling for the appropriation of money, the governing body shall submit such information not later than 5 days prior to the required public hearing. Department heads and other officers shall submit their departmental statements of estimated expenditures and receipts to the budget committee, if requested."

THe governing body's sole contribution is to present their budget requests, and to provide whatever information the budget committee feels it needs.

THe Selectman have no authority over the budget committee. NONE AT ALL.

The Budget Committee has SOLE AUTHORITY to add, remove, or change line items, also to place amounts in them, and what amounts to place.

An amount of zero on a line item PROHIBITS any money being spent on the purpose. An amount of at least $1 allows money to be spent for that purpose even exceeding the amount on the line as long as money can be moved from some other line without overspending the bottom line budget.

ONLY THE SELECTMEN SPEND MONEY. And contrary to Mr. Groski's diatribe against the budget committee, it is the selectmen who overspend line items, and move money form other items something they do every single year. So Mr. Groski is being completely disengenuous in his denunciations of the budget committees spending.

It's the officials who are to blame primarily. The voters who ignore the red flags of corruption have no excuse either. The right to vote is a precious thing but when people vote without doing the research, checking boxes using just name recognition or because someone else tells them who to vote for, results in one of the most egregious things an American can do. Be ignorant of the current issues, be too lazy or busy to open your eyes and you and me and our children will pay. Vote wisely.

It is perfectly legal in this state for ANY town committee to have a legal line in their budget and is is commonly done. Bill Innis likes to make laws up all the time. It is also never the bos right to dictate what the budget committee presents in the budget! These idiots are looking for court fight they just might get it!

Mark Acciard said...

To the commentator at 12/31 8:46am; Please do not adopt Mr. Consentino's unsuccessful habits. He has a track record of threatening, and even filing frivolous slander/libel suits, and withdrawing them within weeks of trial, as he does not wish his dirty laundry aired in open court. I know having been the target of just this chain of events. He sued me for slander, for calling him a liar. It did not matter that I could and did prove that he lied. He just needed to be able to tell his followers that he was fighting this, Of course he never explained why he withdrew it, when I laughed at his offer to drop the suit in return for a payment of $15,000 from me. My response to his attorney, Mr. Giarrusso was "Tell your client that if he pays me $15,000 I will not air his dirty laundry in open court." Two weeks before my trial date he withdrew his suit. Go figure.

TRUTH is an absolute defense against slander or libel suits. As long as you are stating your opinion, of fact, you are safe from both.

12/31 @ 7:16, Who can disagree with you except the other four selectmen? I would hope for a show down in any court of law that would give an opinion of their wrong doing and then prosecute the wrong doers to the full extent of the law.--8:46, If we are ripe for "Libel" suits then why haven't we honest taxpayers been brought in to a court of law? I'll tell you why ,it is because you know you wouldn't have the guts and you know you'd lose . Besides that you'd have to have the permission of the leader of your corrupt thieves and he wouldn't want any one like Mark or some body like him, to tell what is going on in a court of law. It could bring down your "friends" quickly by doing so. Why don't you await the day of the voting total balloting to see the out come instead of making idle threats wouldn't be allowed by your leader knowing he has been warned by the courts of what will happen to him because of his prior court appearances with its --warnings-- of what is next to come!.

People who complain are generally people who have not done the emotional and spiritual work of developing a loving, compassionate inner adult self. They are operating as a wounded child in need of love, attention and compassion. Because they have not learned to give themselves the attention and compassion they need, they seek to get these needs met by others.

Complaining is a way they have learned to attempt to get this. They use complaining as a form of control, hoping to guilt others into giving them the attention, caring and compassion they seek.

Complaining is a “pull” on other people. Energetically, complainers are pulling on others for caring and understanding because they have emotionally abandoned themselves.

They are like demanding little children. The problem is that most people dislike being pulled on and demanded of. Most people don’t want emotional responsibility for another person and will withdraw in the face of another’s complaints.

How many court orders did conman not follow? 3-5 I forgot. I would imagine all the times he snubbed superior court rulings that for sure he doesn't want to appear in front of them again. Might be selling cow shit from prison. I bet the prison guards know how to spell manure.

Lots of facts Jack! Great court document's ( there are many cases over the years with many rulings against him) for your reading pleasure. Black and white, judgments against him, videos, fired for cause, come on down and read the headlines "bully cost taxpayers barrels of money"! All allowed by the BOS and his free loading followers. hahahaha No myths here.

There is no "absence" of facts. The trail of documented facts are overwhelming.

Accused and litigated over misappropriating town funds to start his career.

Lies about Lt. Rick Daniels destroying "12 years" database of police cases, this was in 1991, the Pd did not even have computers in 1979.

The cases over Off. Gary Lorden, Rick Buco, Michael Rivera.

The Town that hates Halloween. We even made the Howard Stern show because if his idiocy.

Showing Fred Childs case file from Lawrence around town in the late 90's to undermine his candidacy, highly illegal.

Being Ordered by NHPELRB to "cease and desist" from bullying, harassing, and intimidating his officers.

Being Ordered by Superior Court to obey the Conflict of interest ordinance.

Being found in Contempt of Court for violating said Order

Being dismissed at NHSC on same case.

Over 8 legal actions resulting in hundreds of thousands in legal costs and settlements

Using his office to investigate his critics.

Keeping civil files on his critics.

Threatening his critics and their families

Following them through town.

Lying on camera about them

Calling their customers and suppliers and lying, telling them that the critic is under investigation by the Atkinson PD.

Lying about use of funds in donation account withdrawal requests.

FIRED FOR CAUSE pursuant to a complaint of FIVE YEARS OF CONTINUED SEXUAL HARASSMENT of female employee.

This list of FACTS is long and despicable. and well documented.

Well, Mark you cyberstalk this guy all over the Internet,
spewing your spin on incidents many of us have seen
and strongly disagree with your version.... Frankly ( no, I'm
not Frank) you got obsession issues....

he moved on a long time ago, and honestly he's
the best Selectman for getting things done.. and following up...
For the old guy to still dedicate himself to his community is
admirable, but you and your Asshats here just keep beating him down...

The selectman past and present are not corrupt -- they try to do the
best they can but subject themselves to ridicule and corruption charges
from the Asshats on this and past Atkinson hate boards..

I feel sorry for you, actually you have a good head on your shoulders,
You could have contributed so much more but your attacks have become
your Atkinson legacy..



Anonymous said...

They DO for those they want to DO for and not the community. That does not make a good selectman, it's cronyism yet again. They judge who they will support and dole out services based on their own perception about those they are elected to serve. I feel sorry for the Town for having to put up with this for so long. I know very few people who are OK with the way the things are running.

Anonymous said...

I been around town a long time, have seen a lot of Selectman come and go
some good ones, some not so good, but never would I use the word "corrupt" to
describe their terms of service.....small town politics is never perfect, can get pretty
ugly but these people our my neighbors, they have kids and families and work jobs and
essentially volunteer their time and eventually they all make some decision that pisses
someone off and so it goes...

I sometimes wonder if you haters believe they were corrupt before being elected
or after being in office Or both....guess it doesn't matter to the self righteous......

The scatter shot accusations made here show me a lack of character of
perhaps. "the hateful eight".

ah what the heck it's

I am cyber stalking no one. I laid out the truth for the commentator who thought there were no facts. He was wrong. I produced no "spin" EVERYTHING I stated is documented.

And as for the rest of your opinion, you are entitled to it, but not your own facts. Sorry

Perhaps if he had used his dept. and authority to harass you, your wife, and kids, and tried to destroy your business, even going so far as to joke in the town hall about it, if your car and home were vandalized as a result of his on camera defamations against you, You would feel differently.

My mother 50 years ago stated you can't fight city hall. Well Mark sure has and even though it was and still is an uphill battle he has proven his point and exposed the problems we have had and still do. Phil has had some pretty serious protection but that just shows how deep the corruption is. You can't just have a tiny bit you either are or are not. After buying support for 30 years and with either his positions power or handouts it is what it is. I would love to see his ass in front of the Judge that he has so blatantly disobeyed. We will see his " head in a box" for sure. he has been walking on eggshells lately but that is not punishment for what he has done over the past. The people of this town deserve better and the people that protect him are the biggest problem we have.

You do not "want" to believe when you know the truth especially when it is already on record. You write about deception but it is you that is knowingly deceived when you fail to see and recognize what has been recorded and published after legal due process of law and board meetings in town.

Anonymous said...

It is one thing to criticize elected public figures, it's your right to do so and is covered as free speech. To those who attack a private citizen on here, it's harassment and you can be sued for it. Mark is a private citizen and the postings are repeated and constant and qualify as harassment. I think he's quite great for continuing to stand up for what's right, telling the story to those who just don't want to hear the truth, and for being an honest man. I have had enough of the hateful comments by the hypocrites and hope he does something about this soon.

And all would say that Phil C has helped the Atkinson elderly as a righteous servant
lends one to believe the following of Phil,

"Defends the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked"

Psalm 82:3-4 NIV;



......and that hand of thy wicked would be those who try to lie and deceive all of those who see the good in this fine man.

A righteous servant ! hahahahahahahahaha All for votes so he could retain the power to bully residents and fondle his receptionist. Nice try but no cigar. Not even close but made me laugh. Phil has taken up the script but buddy it is way to late to cover dishonesty with kissing the ass of the only ones that would support you because of your handouts "do not stop at the pearly gates go pass go and right to the "hot" house."
A classic example of our time has been Pres. Clinton and the Lewinsky affair. But many other politicians and other famous people have lied to cover up their sins. Politicians are often known to practice many forms of evil, but lying under oath is about the only one that seems to upset many people.
Nearly every criminal lies to deny guilt.
Illegal aliens often lie about their citizenship status in order to get a job or a driver's license.
And most of us have lied to cover our sins.
"The devil has many tools, but a lie is the handle that fits them all." Almost any sin you can name will lead to lying to cover it up: adultery, murder, stealing, etc.
Have you and I been guilty? Have we repented of the sins of the past?

Let play pin the tail on the "donkey" and his supporters!

Donkeys are stubborn, inflexible and unwilling to learn. Typically any attempts at persuasion by the donkey results in confusion, arguments and conflict.

Donkeys can often be recognized the "know it all" type of person. They believe they are right, regardless of any evidence to the contrary. They live in their own world and only pay attention to those who put fort hay into their feed bag.

Most donkeys don't know how to analyze or manage an influence opportunity and so simply become donkeys simply through their lack of knowledge and skill. They can be changed, but only if they are willing to learn new ways of doing things. Often however they are not.

Some are very hard to change. These truly inflexible people-donkeys are unwilling to see the world through other people eyes.

Consentino only helped elderly if it served his self righteous agenda. I know many needy elders who were denied help over the years and he refused them. He even targets elderly people who he doesn't like. He's a loser.

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you"

Phil C has always been the good shepherd, done a lot for the elderly and no one can refute that except the haters and evil people.

7:12AM is right in what they wrote about using bible quotes defending PC with his many wrong doings. This misuse of quotes as and in doing that is most likely sinful and just plain wrong to do. The records and public knowledge of his wrong doings can't be a lie. Why is it we have the nuts here defending him is beyond my comprehension when I was brought up to recognize right from wrong and accept known truths. Ex. Proven decisions of courts,recorded film of town meetings,public news releases,etc. should be enough even for somebody with a low IQ to acknowledge as true but not the nuts here in town that defend PC. Apparently their higher "brilliance" has over taken their thinking from that of right from wrong.
