Shame on you sir! I simply do not understand this at all. You had a terrific job to support your family. I feel terrible for them.

Sadly this kind of behavior happens more times than we'll ever know! Trusted people just can't keep there hands out of the cookie jar! Be very careful when electing any treasurer to over see funds!

It is sad that this type of thing has become common place in our small towns. I have seen it happen many times in my town over the years only to be swept under the rug by the powers that be so the town doesn't get a bad rap. sad but true!

For 20 years I worked in fraternal clubs.It's a damn shame that people are so dishonest and greedy. This sort of thing happens a lot. The way the money is managed must be changed. It's all too easy for people to steal. Glad this creep was caught.

He went from the sophomoric Wellsville "license plate club" to now making those license plates. How can anyone with a shred of intelligence think that they can get away with this, especially someone with his background?
