HONOR, INTEGRITY, AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

Please accept the following Article submission, Sincerely Mark R. Acciard

HONOR, INTEGRITY, AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST


"Public officials must act with a higher standard for avoiding the appearance of impropriety, as a condition of the public trust bestowed upon them"- Mark Acciard, May 5, 2005.



Mr. Metzler has been the main cheerleader for a new reading program to help kids improve their reading comprehension with informational texts. This program is proffered by a company called Achieve 3000. A Company Mr. Metzler's wife just happens to work for. She is in charge of "program implementation"for the Northeast region for Achieve 3000, and has been working with them for over a year. Coincidently, the very same year that her husband has been pushing the district to spend $167,000 on this very program. Monies that were not appropriated for this purpose we might add. Also, this $167,000 represents a 50% discount of the total cost of the program for it's first two  years.


It appears that Ms. Metzler began working for Achieve 3000 in or around Sept. 2015. Strictly coincidently we are certain, Mr. Metzler began pushing their reading program in Sept. of 2015. It was first mentioned at the meeting of the curriculum and assessment committee on Sept. 22. Subsequent minutes revealed that this was recommended by Mr. Metzler. The curriculum and assessment committee decided to adopt a pilot program to assess the students, and to begin training teachers to use it. Mind you, no presentation to the school board. No decision to buy the program. No appropriation of funds for it. And perhaps even more outrageous in the underhanded means in which this program was foisted upon the taxpayers, This was happening during the budget season, and no mention of this program was made to the budget committee, nor was a request for appropriation made to purchase or implement this program made. It should be noted that the "pilot program" is actually the initial implementation of Achieve 3000. It gathers the student assessment and base level data, trains teachers to use it, establishes the website, and assigned reading for each lexile level. The only thing missing IS BUYING THE PROGRAM THE DISTRICT IS ALREADY IMPLEMENTING!


At the curriculum and assessment committee meeting on February 16, 2016, it was reported that the assessment of students had been completed, teachers trained, and the program proceeding. STILL no mention to the school board, no vote to purchase the program, no vote to implement the program, no monies appropriated for it, and no disclosure of Ms. Metzler's role in the company.

At the curriculum and assessment committee meeting Sept. 6, 2016 the ball really began rolling, They reviewed progress to date, and Mr. Bealo(also chair of the school board, although he had yet to mention this program to them) made the motion to vote to present this program to the school  board, at their Sept. 15, 2016 meeting. It was also revealed that Achieve 3000 had provided to the district a phonics program, SmartyAntz, as an additional incentive for "agreeing to purchase" the reading program. NOTE, as of  this time there had been NO presentation to the school board. NO vote to buy the program. NO appropriation of monies to buy the program. and NO disclosure of Ms. Metzler's unique role in this debacle. Tell us, Mr. Bealo, who "AGREED" to purchase Achieve 3000 at that point? You?


The Sept. 15, 2016 school  board meeting showed a high pressure sales presentation that was not presented as a sales pitch but as a fait accompli. It was presented WITH MR. METZLER'S ACTIVE HELP AND COERCION, as if the decision to purchase had already been made. The usual board bobble heads made the usual bleats about the wonder of this incredible program, the usual representatives of the taxpayers raised the usual questions about the process, only to be shot down, as usual, by the entrenched purveyors of the status quo.


Now, the PROPER course of action, would have been for Metzler to plainly, and publicly state; "In full disclosure, my wife is employed by this vendor, Achieve 3000, and therefore I will be recusing myself and not participating in the discussion of this program" But that would have required a sense of honor and integrity evidently missing from the gentleman in question.


And, as usual, the school  board, Mr. Metzler, and the SAU also ignored their own policies, to advance their own personal agendas. The school board has a policy governing curriculae adoption, the salient portion of which reads as follows;


"The School Board will support efforts to investigate new curricular ideas, develop and improve programs, and evaluate results through appropriation of funds for specific curriculum development proposals approved by the School Board. The Superintendent will make recommendations to the Board regarding the specific level of funding for approved proposals.
The School Board will review all curricula developed and written by the professional staff in the schools. No basic course of study shall be eliminated or new courses added without approval of the Board, nor shall any significant alteration or reduction of a course of study be made without Board approval. No action will be taken on proposed changes by the Board until the meeting following the presentation by the administration so that Board members may have the opportunity to review the proposed program."  Note the emboldened passage.


Further Mr. Metzler never disclosed his family's relationship this vendor. Now OF COURSE, the SAU lacks an ethics, or conflict of interest policy like most government bodies have, which allows corrupt administrators to act with appalling abandon to theirs and their families interestss. It is high time to correct this problem.

Justice Louis Brandeis was correct; Sunlight is the best disinfectant. It is high time for the district, INCLUDING THE SAU, to have a stringent conflicts of interest ordinance. It is high time for the secrecy, and refusal to produce public information to stop. It is time for Mr. Metzler to understand that his  bosses are the school  board and their bosses are the taxpayers.

Mark. I find that Metezler's run better in pairs, but when over inflated,
they seem to get a little slippery... Expensive, yes, they wear but fast,
but the ride is much better than the previous one: you get what you pay for, right..

Hey Marky Mark and the funky bunch ( of wacko's) is this the honor and integrity you expect out of your beloved COI in ATKINSON?

-LaFrance served on the Atkinson Conflict of Interest Committee for several years but resigned in March 2014. She was arrested nine months later on six counts of making false reports to law enforcement.

LaFrance, 60, of Granite Ridge Road was convicted on four counts of making false reports to law enforcement during her trial in 10th Circuit Court in Plaistow.

GULITY GUILTY GUILTY

THERE ARE SOME BAD HOMBRES OUT THERE MARKY MARK MAYBE YOU CAN HELP GET RID OF THEM!!!!

Yep and we should do the same for the on camera masterbater! I think this was tried but the "takers" outnumber the honest! So the stink continues.

Mark Acciard said...

To 11:10, thats funny I never saw the COI act without integrity other than when Dick Smith ran it, and they found no conflicts in Consentino's behavior. Funny though the Court had some harsh words for their dereliction of duty a year later.

Why does it always take the citizen spending the money to go to Court OUTSIDE of Atkinson/Plaistow to get justice?

As for Ms. LaFrance, as you know, I was in Court that day, and was appalled that the Judge, hand picked by the Clerk of Courts after the clerk took it upon herself to declare the previous Judge unfit, ruled the way he did given the States utter failure to produce evidence.

Curiouser, and Curiouser. But don't worry, I expect no honor or integrity from you either.

The police officer who investigated her was none other than Nic Fiset, a Laurie cop and admitted friend of J,o,radan Shallllow. The witnesses were Andy and Lisa Conlan who she successfully sued for poisoning her trees just weeks before they concocted this case out of thin air. You recall the tree poisoning case? The state stepped in and investigated when APD refused to do so. The police didn't even want to take a report from her. Why? Well maybe because Rose and Rich O'Leary are personal friends of Consentino.

Now we continue to witness stalking of her on this blog and you all are witness to the on going harassment of a 60 year old upstanding woman.

Anonymous said...

Just curious why Laurie Cops got hired by Atkinson in the first place. Can someone at the Atkinson Police Department come online or call into the Eagle Tribune and explain why they chose the worst candidates? I mean was it due to a severe shortage of honest officers available at the time? Did the APD get them at a bargain rate? Did the union force the town? Maybe it was just a deal too good to pass up? But then to make a Laurie Cop an investigator in the town? Jesus! Who had that brain faart? As smart a decision as a student bringing a bag of hammers to a high school SAT exam with crib notes on the handles. I mean your gonna get caught with your pants down.

Just curious about the jury trial coming up. You got on the one hand a crooked stalker up against an outstanding member protector of our town and our country. I mean like she has a top security clearance from the government. That's a big difference from a used car monkey or a Laurie Cop.

Just curious. Anybody know a Laurie Cop who got a top rank security clearance...just sayin.

And just curious about that jury trial coming up. Will all the liars get exposed for real for once and face the consequences from the Judge? The lurid and revolting stalker recordings played for the first time? The jury "spellbound" listening to Laurie cops reading their facts off the handles in a bag of hammers.

The whole town just must turn out for this honest trial (for once). Donuts to dollars, there a lot of corruption gonna get exposed in the Town of Atkinson. John Podesta confirms that reporters from CNN, MSN, TrumpTV, ABC, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The New York Times will come. But not the Eagle Tribune. No No No Cause THIS time, there is no quid pro quo..

Just my humble opinion. Not a single word of truth in it.

Be at the trial or be square, Hombres.

1. Mark Accaird a Donna Green Surrogate who doesn't live in or pay taxes to TRSD
nothing more then a paid Green agitator.

2. Accaird is right, two people have complained about the Metzlers,
1. Mark Accaird 2.Donna green .....enough said.

3. Never trust an outsider who tells you what's best for YOU!

4. Green will be gone soon remember 1311 voted against her and her ploy to move out of the district but most people are so seething at GREEN nothing will prevent them from ousting her from the board not even a Tax increase.

5. People now realize that there are some twisted people out in the TRSD who never can be satisfied the ones who never try to change matters and work with people, they simply sit back and wait for the others to make the tough decisions then complain and pick them apart afterwards.

6. If Accaird and Green really think anyone cares about what they think then we have a word for that "Delusional".

7. The hateful flock that listens to these two are lost souls.

Metzler has shown his corrupt self as many before him.

Unearned military pay, pigs fired for cause, violations of open meeting laws, pigs exposed for adulterous relationships with other town employees, filing false reports with the state, illegal slush funds, abuse of office, perjury, collusion, criminal threatening, lewd behavior in official meetings, selective enforcement of the law, negligent enforcement of the law, selective distribution of public benefits, revealing expunged records, stalking at the mailbox, conduct unfit for officers, hiring dishonest police officers, bullying employees.

Rather than hold the town responsible, and in actuality, sue every one paying taxes in town. The best way to avoid all that is to vote the crooks out. One thing about voting is is that it is anonymous and no one knows how you voted unless you tell some one.

To all readers, We have a new elected president and I hope his mouth doesn't start a WAR. My hopes is that he will have strong willed advisors keeping us away from all so called WARS. Most people use that word, WAR ,to describe loosely the actions we participate in with our being a watch dog country for the world. To be sure we have not been at WAR since W.W.2 . Korea was a police action and all confrontations since then are and have been basically the same-- a police action. WAR has to be declared by our government and the President the last I knew. I think we should provide countries with supplies of all types to enable these countries to fight their enemies but I do not want to see any more of our service men and women dying in any action unless it is an absolute necessity to preserve our own country and way of life. Its time for the United Nations to do its job or disband because it has not done any thing to stop any "WAR" regarding any true peace in these countries and the world at large. Our federal and state elected officials have to come to terms with doing what we people put them in office to do and not that of big business . All contributed money to any and all campaigns should be given to charity and medical research if it is not used up at the end of each run for election. That should,will or can stop a lot of the buying of the votes of our elected officials. It is time to take back each of our constitutional rights and be free of the big business influences and restore the power of the people to its rightful place to make decisions for every person in our United States. -- The reason I did not vote for either Trump or Clinton is as follows:: Clinton because of what she failed to do that cost us American lives and her scandalous charity . -- Trump because of his outrageous mouth that I see as being a threat to us all because of N. Korea just waiting to push the buttons to launch and start a nuclear WAR. Again ,I did not vote for Trump or Clinton but if it were down to having the only choices of the two I would have voted for Trump.

Trump destroyed the Clinton dynasty, Bush dynasty, Obama legacy. That's just the start.

Sanctuary cities will be defunded by Trump and illegal aliens removed forever.

Ho him. Low energy Jen Bush is going to Texas to try his luck as a college professor.
Political Science I hear. Iffin he can get HW Bush to buy the college.
He will split his teaching semester with pal Tim Kaine,,,all papers, lectures delivered in Spanish or Aramaic.

Hmmm. With them there in Austin, disgraced, with their flock of illegal aliens,,,don't that make Austin a sanctuary city?

Just curious

I care way more of Hillary's actions over the last 30 years, that what Trump ever said. The left would have gotten us in a war a lot quicker than anything Trump would have said. BTW no special interest gave Trump a dime. There was such a huge turnout for him they couldn't do enough voter fraud to make a difference. I do hope now that congress will pass a voter ID program for all federal elections.

Left or right doesn't matter what you are in the time of war and other political decisions that are and have to be made . I also care way more of Clintons actions over the past thirty years of her political life. You say he had no special interest giving him a dime but you forget that these same big business people will be knocking down his door to give him all kinds of backing to get what they want. Yes he did spend a lot of his own money on the election and I wonder what is his reason for doing so. For a man with no political back round to spend a fortune as he did to be elected there has to be an under lying reason for his running for president. Time will tell just what that under lying reason is when he has more money to enjoy his life without having the burdens of the job as president. Other than the natural process of ageing haven't you noticed what the job of president does to them? Money or not I wouldn't want the job knowing that at any time some one can kill me. So what is his reason for wanting the job over and above his huge ego that is so obvious to most of us peons?

It's way overdue to DRAIN the corrupt Atkinson SWAMP. That's all that counts. All these wordy comments about Trump or HRC are just stupidity.

It's way overdue to DRAIN the Atkinson SWAMP from years of corruption, electioneering, outright lying, malfiesience in office and profligate spending of taxpayer dollars.

The mindless pitter patter comments are empty and meaningless. Look at your new tax bill and weep over what got scammed away.

What is important, where the rubber meets the road is to DRAIN THE ATKINSON SWAMP.

I just wonder why the Rep. and Dem parties didn't put up other candidates at their conventions to select from.

You get rid of the electoral voting and states like NH will not have any say in it. It was designed that big populated states are figured into the smaller states. They knew what they were doing adding it to the constitution.
The riots are nothing more that the extreme left's anti Constitutionalist movements. Well prepared and coordinated and funded by Soros. Funny how all the sanctuary cities without felony riot laws have violent protests and the ones that do have them the protests are peaceful.

If its ok to continue to have city,town,state by individual vote counts then why not have federal elections do the same? Votes are as good as one another country wide and need no electoral college vote to determine a presidential winner .

Above , I didn't read the site you posted ,however, it maybe a good time to amend or change some of its content anyway. Our country has communications and electronic outlets of all sorts and voters know what is going on at election time. Voting was always the majority of votes cast as being the winner of an election. How can it be fair now in todays time since its inception? States can be of all sizes and populations but the one thing is and always was that a majority rules.

Read the article. The presidential electoral elections was designed to be fair and allow all of the country to have a fair voice in the election. Please don't continue to be un informed, read the article or do your own search as to why we have an electoral vote. It easily explained and understood.

Time to revamp and make changes to it to bring it up to date. Then there will be no fighting about it.

IT won't be changed because most state would be left out of making a decision on their smaller population. It is just almost perfect the way it is and to amend the constitution takes a lot. There is only fighting when one loses the popular vote. In this case Hillary didn't win it if you take the voter fraud out of the equation. I hope now the congress will pass voter ID for federal elections and enforce the constitution in the fact that only citizens can vote.

Anonymous said...

I wasn't aware nor did I hear of any voter fraud charges being brought about to say there had proven voter fraud on the media that were the truth of any fraud being perpetrated to sway the election. I think the majority of votes cast should be the thing to be first in any election and not some type of electoral college to decide an outcome. I side with Nov.15 at 6:40 about majority rules as first and foremost being the voting result over the electoral college.

Anonymous said...

Then you read the wrong news and you voted for the murderer. You also didn't read WHY we have the electoral vote for the Presidency because you are asking that my and your vote will mean absolutely nothing in a majority vote and the five big states will decide who wins. We will have no say in voting process as a state and as our life style. There are quite a few that have been caught and are now facing felony charges. There are a "suspected" 3 million in California alone of illegal Aliens having voted. The Governor of Virginia PARDONED 60 thousand felons and hillary won that state by 55 thousand. Nice! That now there are 60 thousand felons now ok by law to possess a firearm. Noooooooo no voter fraud nothing to see here just move along and stay in the flock. There was so much support for Trump even the cheating wasn't enough.

It is like pointing out all the corruption over 30 years Hillary would have brought to the table and you not seeing it. I don't want NY and CA picking my next president I want a say in it. And before you say another thing go and see what it would take to change or remove a constitutional amendment.

It may take some doing to make any changes to the EC, if at all. It can be done now that Clinton and Trump have caused such a voters problem in this election. Both of them were not worthy of my vote. I voted for two men who at least can say they have governing back rounds to have run for the presidential office. Clinton and Trump could have had their respective parties put up other candidates against them but each party failed to do so at convention time. The president has power but the senate and congress do as well but the senate and congress are NOT DOING THE JOB that we would want them to do. If they did do their jobs of representing us as they should and had sworn to do we wouldn't have the worry of where we as a country are headed towards as we are today. JMHO , what is yours on the election outcome?

I was part of the progressive movement in the 60's and early 70's. I went to meeting and rallies, went to the Chicago riots because group I was meeting with hire a bus from Ma. It took me until the late 70's to realize my mistakes and that I was part of a movement that wanted "power" and take us in a direction towards socialism. They have over the years, yes some I knew that were extreme radicals, are in powerful positions with the hopes of making an impact toward central control. The biggie, globalisation which has been their underlying desire all the time. You can think Trump is not the best pick for us but he dealt such a blow to these deceitful people that it staggered them in a way that now that more understand the hidden agendas it will be harder for them to continue at the rate they have been going in the last 50 years especially in the last 8. This was their mistake pushing way to hard and will set them back a lot. This also applies to the republicans because most like their pockets lines and don't give a damn about the common folks. Even if Trump can't get all that he promises he already IMO done the most important one, opened our eyes to the corruption and progressive agendas our politicians love to wallow in. How we fix it is up to us. My biggest hope is that we will have a "balanced" supreme court for decades to come.

Since you wanted answers this will get you started. I will add that I was a part of one of the groups mentioned on that article and listen to Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn speeches. Saul alinsky never had a claim to fame but an agenda that all socialists and progressives use to gain their power. Here is a link to a letter written by Hillary to Saul Alinsky.

https://www.scribd.com/doc/240077031/The-Hillary-Letters

Anonymous said...

Here is Saul Alinskys 8 steps for Control keep in mind he died in 1972:

Obama was influenced by the writings and philosophies Saul Alinsky, author of the book, "Rules for Radicals," and later by Frank Marshall Davis, with similar philosophies.

Barak Obama followed the philosophies of these 'role models' throughout his days as a Community Organizer for ACORN, using tactics that appeared to some as 'shaking down' businesses in exchange for not branding them 'hate groups.'

And apparently Obama is still following those radical rules today.

Recall that Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on his writings and Barack Hussein Obama writes about him in his books.




How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.

The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people

2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.




Now, think ...

Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?

The above is food for thought, in case you think Trump was a bad Idea, at worst he has broken the chain of this system, keep in mind in most major cities mayors have been democrats for 100 years, if you listened to Ben Carson he brought Alinskys name up repeatedly during the primaries, now ever wonder why the major cities mayors are refusing to invoke change to the "Sanctuary city system"....40-50% percent of people get some form of state assistance .....hint...... it controls the vote.

A nearby example is Mr. Deval Patrick who was giving illegals free health care and state assistance which some in that state are now trying to give them licenses ...Gee I wonder why ? perhaps to bypass voter ID laws in states that have them.

If you are illegal you could possibly vote in states without voter ID (California)
funny the government threatens them with immediate deportation, they are here illegally they should go anyway.

Just food for thought and you see how politics even on lower smaller levels can reach all of us.

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

May be there should be an amending to the electoral college and federal voting standards to not allow any person to vote unless they have at least 8 years in the country. In 8 years the government can then be some what sure of the voters legality to vote and to stay in our country legally. If in those 8 years the person does not attempt to become a citizen or become one then back they go to where they came from or they can go to another country to live in. Why should we have generation after generation staying on the systems of dole we have in the country and not contribute to our society.

-This is a full solar eclipse of civilization itself!

This evil leering cynical loutish criminal threatens everything: our existence and everything we hold dear.

The Republicans have ceased to be patriots. They've crossed over into some other place!

Those who once expressed horror now goose step gayly to the "lascivious tinkling " of Trump"s tinny triangle. ...he beats hisvtonling cymbal constantly while he doing his dull, flat footed hulking dance ... and all the while he holds his little metal tong, in those short fingered devil's claws of his... those appendages he calls "beautiful hands" proof positive of his power to rape at will.
If ever the hell of the platonic cave, with its rows of prisoners locked in chains were made "glorious summer" invisible now.

It is an endless pitiless summer, a blazing inferno he has prepared for us!

A Great Wall of flame , a towering cliff of fury, a tidal wave of hellish terror, a burning tsunami miles high , deep and wide streaks across the night sky taking aim at the blue planet...


We prisoners locked in our chains must stare stupidly ahead... our heads forced to face forward our eyes forbidden to blink ...our gaze sees only the flickering of shadows on cave walls lit from behind by this ferociously roaring bonfire of the vanities ...hurtling through space accelerating towards a paralyzed populace

into this stifling hell are piped incessantly a wild babble of competing forked tongues...

you cannot think for all the noise.

Occasionally the insolent sneer of one of a Walpurgisnacht of ghoulish fiends rises above the din to scream out in torturing clarity some new devil's falsehood

for the consumption of the enchained prisoners must hear

Huge loudspeakers pound the lies and insults into the innermost sanctum of ears that once heard Bach


The screaming ghouls are of both sexes ... they form an endless procession alternating between shrieking harpies and loutish dull brutes!
Oh yes!

Made in the USA!

Indeed!
This is our own made in USA Trumpocaust!

O yes!!

"Lyin' Hillary. Crooked Hillary " and her likely team would have been so much worse than this!

The devil's shell game propagated by the orange orangutan embraced by a populace stirred to suicidal fury by the nasty sneering of King Poison and his surrogates. This white fanged monster with his leering, sneering Botox puffed mask
That must have once been a human face...This is the visage that proclaims our miserable future, this is the inheritor of our very own made in USA devil's pact.

Into the gaping maw of this hydra headed poison fanged monster the painstakingly won gains of a fragile civilization are plowed..

And the left rolls over and plays dead, lets the gang rape of Lady Liberty and the handmaidens of human freedom proceed apace!

"Oh no! I couldn't vote for either of them! They are both so awful"

5 years ago I was invited to a neighbor's house for a meeting with the pitch on saving money on all sorts of things. I knew it smelled but I went for the entertainment. When I walked in there were some well known people from town and surrounding ones also. A state rep from plaistow and our own Brian Boyle was part of the "pitch" team of about eight. So I kept my mouth shut and listened. One of those you join now for 1000 dollars and you get all kinds of discounts........Even an "free" outdated viedio conferencing machine ( of course outdated by 10 years). These people all got up in front of my neighbors and said what a wonderful deal this is and how if they sell this wonderful discount system to others on how even you can make money$$$$$$$$$. It was quite the show for sure. After about 45 minutes and I saw some people were getting sucked in I blurted out "yep the Egyptians invented this 2000 years ago!" Boy the looks from all these con artist trying to get their own money back off my neighbors and me was priceless. I continued that the video phone BS wa done in the midwest 5 years ago as the same "hook" for the same pyramid scheme. If looks could kill, so I let them explain how wrong I was and I should most definitely fork out 1000 bucks for a lifetime of discounts....... It was fun. I had a lot of respect for Brian before that day not after. Out of 10 neighbors excluding the host which had already got sucked in weeks earlier none paid up and later all told me I was quite a show and some would have bought it if not for my little smirk comments. One neighbor's wife still went home and tried to convince her husband to go for it ( Edith was her name I think) LOL. He called me and was so happy he did.
We have enough bull shit goverment now I need some more like a hole in the head. If Brian wants to explain why he was part of this scheme and I feel he was either conned himself or simply made a mistake maybe just maybe he could gain that respect back.

No town hires Laurie cops because they can't be trusted and that leaves the dishonest cops out of work. UNLESS they happen to get hired somewhere that needs a pawn. They need to work so they are OWNED by those who gave them a job. They become tools for corruption and Atkinson hires these guys (or gals). Atkinson NH has become a safe haven for criminals because they look the other way when there is crime, then take note of the offender and now own him. They leverage the pawns when they need them and everyone is happy. Happy corrupt cops, happy criminal townies in lawless Atkinson, NH. A con scheme decades in development.

Now about your "flabby ass" comment. You have to try a hemorrhoid cream to sooth the constant itch that seems to be annoying you that you can not seem to think of anyone else but yourself.

Come on, why all the negativity? there's so much
to be thankful for, living in the town of Atkinson; so many
fine people, past and present, that makes this one of the best
small towns in America, perhaps even the World...

tonight , just before you go to bed, think about the 7.5 billion
folks you share the planet with, and how many of those would
eagerly trade places with you...

TWO FIFTY, over and out

Driving through town it is very nice looking! Only after you buy a home here does the stink start to invade your home. You start to realize that the town is overvalued and the tax rate will surely go up and up when the State comes and cuts their funding to the town. Or the school system's corruption is going to choke your wallet more and more every year. Oh such a wonderful place said the spider to the fly.

3/1 @ 707AM asked a/or questions that haven't been answered. Could there be anyone with guts enough to answer them? Whats there to be afraid of in revealing any of any truths to the public. That being or would be if there is anyone with the guts to reveal what these questions asked are all about. Publishing a truth in answers here can't bring anyone any problem except for rebuttal by some screwball who wouldn't know truth from fiction.

Why isn't anyone talking about Deb Desimone and her conflict of interest? Why isn't anyone demanding a conflict of interest complaint for her getting paid by the town to babysit her grandkids and demanding we get our tax dollars back for those hours? Instead of going after a female cop's figure as 3/1 @ 8:56 p.m. did, why not go after a woman who abused the system, continues to abuse it by shutting her office down during the day, demands access to an office that's not hers because she wants "air flow," takes raises given to her by a personnel policy she doesn't follow, and is a complete embarrassment to the town and to the Statehouse? If you want to bring it back to Consentino, then you have to go after Bill Baldwin. Baldwin didn't know how to vote last night until Consentino kicked him. It's all on camera.

BRENTWOOD — A former Atkinson town official is considering appealing her conviction a second time after a Superior Court jury found her guilty of repeatedly lying to police by falsely accusing her neighbors of threatening behavior.

Joyce Lafrance, 61, of Granite Ridge Road was convicted of four counts of making false reports to law enforcement following a District Court trial in October. She appealed her conviction at the superior court level, and following a two-day trial in early February, was convicted of the crimes again.

"We're considering all our options," said Lafrance's attorney, Rick Lehmann. "I anticipate an appeal."


"The whole situation has been very difficult and serious for her. ... She maintains her innocence," Lehmann said.

According to court documents, Lafrance — who served on the Atkinson Conflict of Interest Committee for several years before she resigned in March 2014 — called police on several occasions in November 2014 to allege that her neighbor was making loud noises and threatening her. On at least one occasion she told police he had fired a gun and "yelled out her name."

Atkinson police charged a neighbor with disorderly conduct as a result of Lafrance's complaints twice. Lehmann said his client has a restraining order against that man.

After receiving constant complaints, the Police Department investigated by having an officer monitor the alleged noisemaker's home overnight. The officer testified she heard no noise coming from the home.

Lafrance has already begun the appeals process with her lawyer. On Feb. 14, Lehmann filed three motions, asking the court to set aside the guilty verdict, order a new trial, and allow for post-trial discovery so Lafrance could subpoena three police officers to testify.

Each motion was denied by Judge Andrew Schulman on Feb. 27.

Lafrance sought first to secure a new trial by alleging that Chief Al Brackett of the Atkinson Police Department had committed perjury in his testimony when he said Lafrance called the department "every day" and complained about "all" of Atkinson's officers.

The state argued that such concerns should have been remedied during cross examination at trial.

"If the defendant thought that the chief's statements were inaccurate, he (Lafrance's attorney) had the opportunity to cross examine Chief Brackett and did so quite vigorously," wrote Assistant County Attorney Melissa Fales. "Here, the defendant never objected to the chief's testimony, did not move to strike the chief's testimony and never even cross examined the chief regarding what he not contends is false testimony."


Schulman agreed Brackett did not commit perjury and denied the motion.

He also denied Lafrance's motion to have the verdict set aside because, as she said, "the jury's verdict in this case was contrary to the weight of the evidence." As an example, Lafrance noted that one of the prosecution's witnesses could not remember if he was 6 feet tall or 6 feet and 3 inches, casting doubt on his reliability.

Lafrance also sought post-trial discovery because she subpoenaed three police officers to the trial, but they did not receive the subpoenas before the trial ended.

The state and Schulman disregarded this because the subpoenas were delivered to the sheriff just one day before the trial began. The addresses listed on the paperwork were those of the stations where the officers worked, and the three were not working when the deputy sheriff attempted to deliver the subpoenas.

"The defendant should have attempted service prior to jury selection, when the trial was scheduled to begin the next day, and last only a few days," Schulman wrote.

Fales, the prosecutor, said she was "happy with the results" of the second trial.

"False reports, we take them seriously because they take police and first responder resources away from ... people who are actually in need of services," Fales said

Poor liar is $50k + in their pathetic defense strategy. Sounds like her lawyer/salesman is using this case for a cash win fall. But he is the only one winning. We must be aware of the "government clearance"? Boy I hope Trump cleans out the Atkinson swamp while he is in office. The corruption starts in Washington but ended up in Atkinson! Don't worry trump chief bracket will keep these New Hampshire streets clean. Arresting liars and corrputors and throw them in jail for 10 days! That will teach them about lying.

I feel sorry for the victim in this case, very nice young family dreaming to raise children in Atkinson. Only to be stripped of that dream by a lying neighbor. These people had to move and sell there house just to get away from this person. I don't think 10 days in jail is fair compared to the pain and suffering her false claims caused. Very sad fall from grace for this former town official.

Police perjury is wrong and when you have police who conveniently don't show up for court because a sheriff didn't serve them, you have an injustice as has happened in this case.
