I was going to wait until I had the entire story before posting this. however, it seems that the powers that be in Cumberland county are hell-bent at preventing me from getting any information. OPRA requests are denied, or they claim that the requested document “does not exist”. However, I know for a fact that it exists.
So, what started me on this current quest? A couple years ago I had an off-the-record with an employee of the Cumberland Manor. They were a big fan of MagazzuWatch, and began offering information before having second thoughts, and zipping up.
However, I did find this letter in my mail one day, in an envelope bearing no return address. The envelope contained nothing else, but this was enough to get me started snooping. Some fortuitous leads from other anonymous people, and I had enough information to begin asking questions.
One of the questions was, who is the person referenced in this letter? Well, it turns out she was a realtor working at Jane Jannarone’s Exit Realty. THAT explains the apparent cover-up by the county! Lou Magazzu will not allow anything to befall his darling Jane. And apparently those who owe their jobs to Lou are willing to continue his bidding.
Click on the letter to enlarge it. It was addressed to Mr. Peter “See No Evil” Harvey – no surprise that the investigation went nowhere. Or did it? I am still trying to find out answers. Why, for instance, did said clerk retire on a state pension? Did Jannarone’s Exit Realty benefit by this person’s unethical practices? Why was this never made public? Was this mismanagement part of the reason for the millions of dollars in losses annually by the Manor?
So, my friends, I am still looking for information. If anyone would like to use our contact page to send info, or just place your leads in an envelope addressed to me, I think we have a story that our local media have overlooked. And they ARE aware of some of it. All contact information will be kept confidential.
