There’s a rumor going around about embezzlement of Northampton Funds.

Might be nothing to the rumor so neither names, nor departments are mentioned right now but we’ll be on the lookout for more info. It’s not that long since Township Manager Bruce Townsend almost got away with $125,000. New Manager Bob Pelligrino is much better at being on top of what’s going on and we hope there’s nothing to the rumor.

Frankly the problem is the ongoing lack of spending information for the citizens. Whether or not this particular rumor is false, the “Accounting System” leaves a lot up to trusting government as compared to open transactions and budget reporting…. as I’ve been saying for the years at the Supervisor meetings,  Water and Sewer Meetings and in various Guest Opinions and on the campaign trail.
