Are you Saying I am Mr. Giordano??? If you would like to meet any where here in Salem for a cup of coffee I would be happy to do so. One thing about me is I am always up front and honest. This is a perfect example of you ducking the question and turning the question around to suit your needs. I do not condone anything that he did, but it's not me who was put on this earth to be judging anyone, we all have to face our lord and savior some day, thats the true judgement day for all of us. That's all I will say on this subject.

I was not way over my head, I am a taxpayer who like others were frustrated with all over spending and tax increases that never ends I don't just rubberstamp budget's and capital plans i ask question's and expect answers and that was what qualified me to be on he budget committee!

Jerry never thought you where Mr. Giordano. Don't like coffee and while on earth you do answer for your crimes. He maybe judged again but for now he will have to settle for our system here. Ron spared you from a decision by pleading guilty. For that I am thankful, I like Ron just wish he chose a better way.

Patriot now I want to say I liked what you said in this posting to the point and with some compassion. I like Ron as well and it is a shame that this happened, but hopefully he has learned a good lesson from all this, and will see the light at the end of the tunnell.

LIght at the end of the tunnel? What about all the people he hurt and scammed? There is a reason the PD was looking into him. SELLING NARCOTICS! And in a school zone! PATHETIC! Couldnt just get a job like normal people, just had to sell drugs and ruin others lives! No sympathy here, He knew what he was doing was so wrong and continued! What if it had been his step children that were being sold to? OOPs, different story there!
