The disingenuous of wEST vIEW


charles holtzgraver
wEST vIEW pOLICE cHIEF

Under his authority and direct order, parking citations for "sidewalk obstruction" were repeatedly issued while the vehicle was parked totally and completely on private property. This is in direct violation of Pennsylvania State Law. Numerous instances of vehicles parked along the highway and actually on the sidewalk are an everyday occurance throughout the Borough of wEST vIEW and citations are not issued.

He tried to obfuscate the issue by talking about curb cuts, when curb cuts are absolutely ignored, relative to parked vehicles throughout the borough.

Just another reason why "wEST vIEW is a good place to leave".

disingenuous example..quote from cHIEF, Tribune-Review July 5, 1998
"We had a complaint from someone who was having a hard time seeing past his car as they pulled from the municipal lot"

DISINGENUOUS, COUPLED WITH GROSS STUPIDITY

disingenuous example II...quote from cHIEF, News-Record May 30, 1999
The chief explained that Ballon is required to have a curb cut.....

A PERFECT EXAMPLE---NO ONE ELSE IN wEST vIEW, ALONG RT. 19 NEEDS ONE!

disingenuous example III...quote from cHIEF, News-RecordJuly 5, 1998
"We just didn't go up there and pick on him"

YEAH, RIGHT!

Totally unqualified to be an officer of the law. Thinks his job is to make laws, not enforce them! Posesses a pea-sized brain with the intellect of a pissant. Has the audacity to illegally issue parking tickets, then try to justify it by testilying. People like this man should never serve on any police force, nor deal with the public in any capacity! Based on my life's experience, the usage of my family, customers and friends...anyone who could verbalize they never observed parking at the front of my property at 479 Perry Highway never looked, or is an absolute and outright liar.

Diane Ebbert
Former crossing guard

Absolute, complete and total liar. Her testimony related to constantly "loading" my car was an absolute figment of her imagination. Her testimony relative to conversations was completely fabricated.

The Lord works in mysterious ways, and she deserves everything she has received, and there is probably more to come.

Was more interested in constantly resting her ample arse against a building and screaming at the top of her lungs at the children, instead of standing up and doing her job as a crossing guard.

Ronald "Wooz" George
West View Councilman

As Fire Chief next door, he testified that he never saw parking over a twelve year period. He added that he's been in the Borough for over 60 years and never noticed cars parked in front of the property. I suppose it is expected that a West View Councilman sells his soul! His legacy is that he is either the least observant person on the face of the earth, or an outright liar.

The only explanation for his testimony could only be inebriation--lying--brain degeneration or some combination of them.

Fred Baxter, Jr.
West View Solicitor

His greatest ability was to find witnesses who were willing to collectively testify under oath, contrary to fact. Effectively made a fool out of himself along the way, including his appearance in front of Judge Dauer.Was able to get a home court win in the Kangaroo Court of his former law partner Dennis Watson, who heads the wEST vIEW Zoning Board Tribunal.

disingenuous example....re: cutting over curb, Court Transcript. May, 1999
"That is illegal. It is unlawful. PennDOT will not allow you to do that."

NO ONE ELSE IN wEST vIEW, ALONG RT. 19 NEEDS TO HAVE A CURB CUT!

another disingenuous example....Court Transcript, Oct. 1999
"PennDot will not allow you to cut over the curb to park, it is illegal"

ANOTHER PERFECT EXAMPLE---If it is illegal, it seems like it's only illegal for me.
All one needs to do is open one's eyes along Rt 19 in wEST vIEW, to see how DISINGENUOUS this is.

The word disingenuous is a truly a synonym for Fred Baxter. Buffoon also comes to mind, but I'm sure he laughs all the way to the bank with revenue dervived from my nonsensical case as well as others that have been likewise contrived.

Attorney Dennis A. Watson
Zoning Board Chairman

Rejected evidence and testimony that was not supportive of the position of his former law partner Fred Baxter. Relying on the lying testimony of a part time crossing guard who was nowhere near the property during the active times like weekends and evenings, shows his absolute bias and exposes his complete lack of professional integrity.(Sixty percent of the time Ms Ebbert spent near the property was during hours the business was closed) Totally disregarded testimony and evidence submitted by those who parked in the area over a thirty year period, including a state legislator, family, friends, customers and neighbors.

disingenuous example..
Overruled each and every objection made by my attorney during four evenings of testimony.

DUH!!!

Dennis A. Watson should be ashamed to call himself an "Officer of the Court"!
I hope and pray that this man receives the same kind of justice in each and every one of his court appearances
as the "justice" he dispenses in his Kangaroo Court, AKA The wEST vIEW Zoning Board Tribunal.

Daniel M. Daugherty
West View Council President

Failed to have the guts to put a stop to all this nonsense before it started or to testify in the case, but at least did not perjure himself by testifying contrary to fact..

Was a multi-repeat customer who often brought in photographic work to be done for the Water Authority.
He typically parked in front of Angel Studio, when there was room available.

Mayor Richard Powell
West View Mayor

Failed to have the guts to testify in the case, but at least did not perjure himself by testifying contrary to fact

Often parked in front of Angel Studio while at meetings or socializing at firehall next door.

Laird Kircher
Former Police Chief

He testified under oath that from 1954 thru 1996 he never saw vehicles parked in front of 479 Perry Hwy. Too bad all of the friends, customers and relatives who parked there aren't around to confront Mr. Kircher, including the very fine Priest, Father Berkmyer who often parked there.

More police testilying! Of course with all the family connections he has to the West View Water Authority,
as well as the Borough of wEST vIEW,--no wonder!

Dominic Lopez
Police dispatcher

Failed to have the guts to testify in the case, but at least did not perjure himself by testifying contrary to fact.

Walked past Angel Studio daily on his way to work. Often waved as he had to squeeze past cars parked in front.

Some of the "connected" residents, appointed and elected officials of West View

Many residents and officials were personally aware of parking in front of 479 Perry Highway. Many of them parked there over the years for the Color Shop and later for Angel Studio.

Sometime in their lives they may find themselves in a situation where they would expect someone to come forward,
and have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and speak the truth!

The aberration of Democracy as practiced in wEST vIEW is something that every man, woman and child should fight against!
