Facebook friends fishy

| Thursday, Feb. 18, 2010

To the Editor:

Do you think if you were a friend on Facebook with Fayette County Commissioners Vince Zapostosky and Vince Vicites; Kathy Winkler, one of their assistants; Mark Rafail, zoning board member; Sean Lally, controller; and Jennifer Mosier, zoning office employee, you could get a favorable zoning decision or not be made to comply with the conditions to a special exception and sue the county and get taxpayer-funded insurance money without proving your allegation?

Why are these particular politicians, appointed officials and county employees Facebook friends of Tanya Cellurale?

Being Facebook friends can be innocent and is for some, but isn't it questionable that Cellurale and these individuals are all on each other's Facebook pages?

Were these political connections helpful: Jim Killinger, zoning board hearing chairman and former co-worker of Mike Cellurale; Jim Shaner, former legislator and neighbor; Mary Jane Orazi, aide to Jim Shaner and a Cellurale herself; Dwight Shanger, magistrate who dismissed the Cellurale cases; and Larry Mayros, Dunbar Township supervisor and brother-in-law of Marilyn Cellurale?

Were Commissioners Zapotosky and Vicites motivated to settle the suit filed by the Cellurales against Fayette County•

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
