Pennsylvania Department of Education Rescinds Tremco School Contract


Saturday, April 12, 2008
"According to a Pennsylvania news report from the Ellwood City Ledger, the state's Department of Education rescinded a Tremco contract for a Riverside Beaver County School after a board member called a special meeting in late March to take a second look at the information.

Apparently, this Tea Party blog was indirectly mentioned in the report.According to the board member, taxpayers began asking questions about how "the system worked", and it was discovered that "Tremco was not following the negotiated terms of the agreement with the state". He said that Tremco offered to "act as the architect of the project as well as the contractor which per the agreement in Pennsylvania would be illegal."

"In a letter addressed to MacKay, a department representative said that engineering or architectural services for the project must be obtained by the district, not through Tremco and the purchasing agencies organization," stated the March 27, 2008 news report."

The rest of the article is available on Diane Vice's blog here. She is the Indiana homemaker and activist who figured out Tremco's dirty dealing to taxpayers in Indiana, stood up to them, and exposed them even when faced with a lawsuit against her for doing so.

Diane is a great example of how one person can make a whole lot of difference to taxpayers.
