Hope these signs can't be hacked ! Maybe Michael Flynn could check it out.
Jeffery Berz April 11, 2012 at 06:00 PM
Yes! He should start another big crisis situation again! I heard the BIG HACKING fiasco was nothing more than a simple process that anyone can do when they share a story off of the internet. This is probably what Flynn got all excited about. What a jerk to make such a big deal out of nothing.

Like the officer ranting about Mr. Viar parking in a handicapped space, when he has a handicapped permit.... or the officer filing a complaint about Mr. Stathakis and then admitting she was wrong when interviewed..... I believe hacking a township officials email account is an actual crime, not some made up drama as the officers created for themselves in the past.
Matt Guarnieri April 28, 2012 at 02:19 AM
That IS what the majority of actual Shelby Twp. residents have to say to you Mr., Berz
Jeffery Berz April 28, 2012 at 04:02 AM
Oh my God! LMFAO!!!
Jeffery Berz April 28, 2012 at 04:04 AM
What hacking? It sounds like Flynn was sending drunken e-mails. That's what everyone thinks.
Matt Guarnieri April 28, 2012 at 05:22 AM
What people on YOUR level might think Mr. Berz, but people who made it past the 7th grade know the truth.
Matt Guarnieri April 28, 2012 at 05:24 AM
I'm starting to enjoy this... keep it coming.... haven't had this much fun since some guy from checker club tried to join chess club
Jeffery Berz April 28, 2012 at 06:04 PM
The chess club! I knew you were a pawn.
Matt Guarnieri April 28, 2012 at 09:09 PM
Unlike Mr. Delise and Mr. Berz, I do not blindly follow politicians, especially politicians who swindle taxpayers and citizens as you have by attending a fund raiser for such a trustee running for treasurer.
Jeffery Berz April 28, 2012 at 10:39 PM
Show everyone your evidence of this person swindling the taxpayers and citizens. All that Lisa Manzella has ever done is to give her time and her support whenever and wherever she can. She is a wonderful lady with a huge heart. That's more than I can say about the supervisor who Matt G. emulates and worships. That man has caused nothing but political turmoil by acting like a cheat, a sneak and a liar. "Thanks for coming down"
