there are a couple of board members who have been openly against Shepard from the beginning. Everything he did was with board approval but somehow he got blamed for everything even when it was best for the county and the taxpayers. This is all because of a couple of trouble makers on the county board and the bias newspaper reporting since Shepard was hired. The newspaper is against Shepard because he was supervisor for the Town of Seneca where the Ontario County Landfill is. Everything he has done has been twisted in a negative way.

And there are a lot more supervisors who turned a blind eye to all the reports from the staff and the public that something was wrong. They accepted all Sheppard's expensive and stupid ideas. Now the county has to put a new roof on the Bonadent building at a cost of about $1 million, because Sheppard refused to have the building inspected. The county paid over $100,000 to clean up the financial records after Brandi got them screwed up. And the "cost savings" he claimed from selling the county vehicles and leasing them from Enterprise has yet to be documented. And, of course, the $24 million sewer "consolidation" that the customers could not afford. I am sure there are more yet to be uncovered.

You must get your information from Cindy, she can't wrap her head around a simple math problem. Besides every one of the examples you gave are totally wrong. It's the IDA's sewer project, the casino was the major player in the Bonadent building, and the finances at the county weren't in compliance with the state's requirements and nobody knew how to use the new computer software required by the state. The Enterprise deal took gas cards away from people who were using them to put gas in their own vehicles.

THANKS FOR BRINGING THESE INPORTANT ISSUES TO PUBLIC ATTENTION.

Supervisors turn a blind eye to a lot of inappropriate behavior at the county office. Let’s not act like all county employees are poor innocent victims.

As far as Cindy goes on this one, she plays devil’s advocate on every issue. She got lucky in this one. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then.

It is the taxpayers and sewer and water district customers who have to pay for "inappropriate" behavior of county employees and supervisors who fail to do their jobs.

And, IMHO, all of the supervisors should be acting as devil's advocates, not just Cindy and a few others.

Well, IMHO, she often reveals how little she understands issues with her devil’s advocate comments.

I wonder if "all seeing eye" realizes that she could be criticizing herself.

You will all be happy to know that John Sheppard appeared at court tonight. With the "outstanding" Ms Brandi Deeds. Despite an impassioned plea from his lawyer to delay, he was arraigned. He went to the Jail for mugshots and prints and was released on recognizance.

The court hearing will be in January.

that man has more integrity in his little finger than just about any person you know ! Fortunately you will never know the details so you won't be able to twist it up like you do everything else.

My answer was more of an argument with the previous post.

With that said, I was willing to defend him while he was here, although now I have my doubts. That was also Luce’s people that determined that he was possibly up to something. Luce has more integrity and intelligence than most in the Dipronio or West Williams buildings.

He will be offered a plea deal for a violation. It will be a nothing charge with a small fine.

At times I respond to a poster but make statements meant for everyone. I don't doubt that John may have crossed the line but everyone does at one time or another. Luce has to enforce the law and is excellent at his job, but I'd bet personally Luce would let this slide.

Ex-Seneca County manager pleads not guilty
By DAVID L. SHAW dshaw@fltimes.com 12 hrs ago

WATERLOO — John Sheppard entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of official misconduct Wednesday night in village court.

James Doyle, the attorney representing the former Seneca County manager, entered the plea on behalf of his client. Justice Conrad Struzik was presiding.

Sheppard remains free on his own recognizance.

Doyle asked for an adjournment, a request Struzik denied and Seneca County Assistant District Attorney Brooke Moore opposed.

Sheppard originally was scheduled to appear for arraignment Nov. 6, but he did not appear. A bench warrant for his arrest was issued but later rescinded. Doyle claimed he was not informed of the court date.

Pretrial motions will be argued before Struzik at 1:15 p.m. Jan. 15.

Sheppard was charged Oct. 15 by a Seneca County Grand Jury for disciplinary actions he took against Seneca County Emergency Management Director Melissa Taylor. He and former county Finance Director Brandi Deeds were the subject of an investigation by the sheriff’s office in the fall of 2018. That report was presented to a grand jury in January 2019.

Deeds accompanied Sheppard to court Wednesday.

Deeds was indicted Oct. 15 on seven counts of first-degree falsifying business records, one count of fourth-degree grand larceny, one count of defrauding the government, and one count of official misconduct. The former three charges are class E felonies, while the latter is a class A misdemeanor. The charges against Deeds relate to allegations of her falsifying time cards in 2017-18.

Pretrial arguments in her case are scheduled for Dec. 10 in Seneca County Court before state Supreme Court Justice Daniel Doyle. James Doyle, who is not related to Daniel Doyle, is representing Deeds as well.

Deeds is free on her own recognizance.

Sheppard, who was county manager from Nov. 9, 2015, to Sept. 4, 2018, recommended Deeds be hired as the county’s first full-time finance director. Sheppard and Deeds resigned in the summer of 2018

Would you describe facilitating your girlfriend going to out of state cheerleading events on county time, as "crossing the line?"

Seems like more than a little "oops" to me.

For once, I agree with you Chuck. Working from home or Disney World or a cheerleading competition might still be working...unless you're not actually working at all, which must be the case here. Sounds like they must have evidence that she wasn't logged into the county systems while she was away. I will let the jury decide that one.

Who knows? Maybe she was thinking about work while she was riding the teacups or riding something else. Does thinking about work count as work,Chuck? The County may owe Ms. Deeds overtime.

DUH, most workers only work 3 to 5 hours a day and get paid for 8. And I know people who have quit Seneca County because their co-workers did absolutely nothing all day. DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION ?

The workers questioned in the poll estimated they spend 6.3 hours a day checking emails, with 3.2 hours devoted to work emails and 3.1 hours to personal messages.
