Subpoenas issued at Cumberland Manor

Both the Daily Journal and the Press of Atlantic City carried stories on the subpoenas issued to the county yesterday.

The state Division of Criminal Justice has subpoenaed the county’s nursing home for all patient admission records for the past seven years, Cumberland County officials confirmed Thursday night.

In a statement issued late Thursday, county Solicitor Brendan Kavanagh said the county is limited in what it can say about the case because it is “an ongoing investigation.”

“We are, however, cooperating fully and are gathering all the documents requested in the subpoena,” he said.

Earlier Thursday, Freeholder Director Louis Magazzu said a three-person committee will comply with the subpoena. “We will cooperate fully,” he said

The subpoenas are in reference to alleged fraud that occurred at the Manor. It should be noted that Lou Magazzu is listed as a member of the advisory board, and Joe Pepitone, up for re-election this year is the Freeholder liaison. If fraud did in fact occur, it happened under the watch of Magazzu, yet another example of his inability to lead.

I understand that certain email records were also subpoenaed. As I hear more, you can be sure that I will keep you posted!

    “Matlock, Mecouch and Kavanagh comprise the committee formed to respond to the subpoena and any further requests for information on the matter, Magazzu said.” (from the Daily Journal)… Boy, that group makes me feel certain that everything will be on the up-and-up. No crack on Matlock, but I’m sure the other two will run rough-shot over him if there is an issue whether to turn something over or not.

    I suppose if the AG really wanted things without room for filtering by the Freeholders, they would have just came down and taken them with a search warrant or something like that….. This seems like perhaps a show for someone rather than a real investigation…But I hope I’m wrong.

    The DJ removed 3 comments on this subject tonight.

    If one had read those comments then one might have a inclination as to WHAT might be the REASON for the Subpoenas, Who knows for sure?

    Remember a year ago and the the $180,000.00 tentative settlement that Lou Magazzu & Mayor Romano Agreed to that was later defeated by Vineland City Council.

    Who has those RECORDS the County Health Dept claimed to have Rendered Services for 17,000 Vineland Children.

    That would equate to just under 1/3 of the overall Population for the City of Vineland.

    Who or Whom has these RECORDS?

    Will someone L{.}{.}K around for them?
    They (RECORDS) might be needed to provide some FACTS about this Issue.

    What ever happened to that Lawsuit the County threaten the City of Vineland with?
    Anyone know the FACTS?

    Checks and Balance make the County a Better Place
