On Audio: "Gallitto The Paranoid"

By Bertram de Souza (Contact)

Published August 15, 2008

The other day, Vindicator reporter Denise Dick was on her beat in the Boardman Township Administration Building when she happened to see Trustee Kathy Miller in the office. Dick, whose job it is to find out what's going on in the township, sat down for a chat.

But that brief encounter between the reporter and the trustee has caused a flap that would be hilarious, if it weren't so juvenile. It gives new meaning to the word "paranoid."

Miller was confronted by Trustee Robyn Gallitto, who peppered her with questions about her conversation with Denise Dick. To hear the exchange, which was taped, click on the audioclip player above.

Psst, Robyn, if you rush over to the police department you'll see Denise holed up with the police chief. No, wait, she's at the fire department talking to the chief. Now, there she is with township Administrator Loree. Is that Trustee Moliterno chatting with her? 

THEY'RE ALL CONSPIRING AGAINST YOU, TRUSTEE GALLITTO! It's time you hired a lawyer — oops, you are one — and sued them all for talking to a Vindicator reporter.

Thanks for that, Bert! I do hope you expand upon this in your paper, not just in 'Stirfry.' Speaking on matters of public concern is just that - matters of public concern and public employees are constitutionally protected in doing so.

Denise, give me a call, maybe Gallitto will then accuse me of conspiring also!

Don't worry Robyn, you've got very little chance of getting elected to any office from here on out.

You've been a major disappointment as trustee. I hope selling out to the power brokers was worth it?

This is complete bs..Bertrum and Denise Dick never report the truth from Boardman...Denise Dick's article about the sunshine law was bull..she left before the Trustees even came back out to conduct open session because she "had a deadline", while apparently she has no journalistic integrity other wise she would have said she left before the meeting was adjorned. As for Gallitto asking Kathy Miller about talking to Denise Dick, maybe she is just tired of Kathy Sand bagging her and Larry all the time to the Vindicator, and last time I checked she did vote Gallitto Chair women, if she was so ill fit to lead, why did she vote for her. Isn't it Gallitto's right to ask another Trustee what they said to reporters? If its regarding Township Business, thats her right to know. The Trustee's should be on the same page regarding media comments because that's where citizens get thier information and township business should be presented in an acurate manner, not comments from one trustee but a statement from the Board as a whole. But no Kathy went and cried like a baby to the Vindicator staff writers who sympathize with her, because guess what DRAMA sells papers, and frankly thats all Denise Dick and Bertram care about, other wise they'd report truthfull stories.

Would Spartan3204 like to provide a sampling of some truth not reported by Bert or Denise?

There's a Youtube clip of Gallitto interrogating Miller, in public, at a trustee's meeting. I don't have the link handy, but if you search for either Boardman or Gallitto you should find it.

What's shameful is that these supposed adults waste the public's time sniping at each other right out in public. We've got three of the most dysfunctional trustees I've ever heard of, and that's just based on how they conduct themselves while supposedly holding a formal meeting. I wonder how they act behind closed doors?

All three should resign in shame. Leicht, too, for that matter.

I did privide the example already, Denise Dick's article about the sunshine law violation...that was not the truth, THERE WAS NO VIOLATION. She fails to mention that she left the meeting before the trustee's came out of executive session and that those that were there know the trustee's conducted the levy discussion in open session and in front of the public.

There was nothing precluding discussion of a levy in public prior to Executive Session. Why would such a topic even be discussed in such a fashion?

And "discussion on a levy" was NOT mentioned in the motion to go into executive session:
