Neshannock Township manager is mysteriously missing from work

NEW CASTLE — Neshannock Township manager Craig Altman is MIA.

Altman, 43, reported to work at the municipal building on Mercer Road on April 2.

However, he has not been seen at work for two days.

Township secretary/treasurer Leslie Bucci, contacted this morning, said she could confirm Altman has not reported for work Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.

“I don’t know why he has not been at work,” she said. “I have received no explanation.”

Supervisor Joe Gierlach, who voted against filling the township manager position, said he is aware Altman was not at work Tuesday. He said he has not heard about Wednesday.

“We met with him on Monday afternoon. He was there then,” Gierlach said. “If he took the rest of the week off, I received no reason for that. I have not been told, no one’s discussed anything with me and I don’t know if he has resigned.”

Altman did not return phone calls and Supervisor Ed Stevens did not return phone calls or emails sent to him.

Altman was hired by township supervisors on a 2-1 vote March 21 to fill the newly created post.

The supervisors will meet in a special session at 8 a.m. Thursday in the township building.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
