The Volpe Report with Chris Kelly
Next to his wife, his cats and his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, Chris Kelly loves filing Freedom of Information Forms. Of course, Mr. Kelly's world is centered in Lackawanna County , where FOI requests are often a full-contact engagement.
An award-winning columnist/reporter for the Scranton Times-Tribune, Mr. Kelly returned to The Volpe Report Sunday, April 8, 2018 and discussed some of the recent follies he has encountered in his quest for the truth and some of the runarounds he's encountered after filing FOIs with the Scranton School District and Lackawanna County.
The school district is immersed in a state attorney general's investigation and the county, which is also the subject of a criminal investigation, recently spent nearly $350,000 in unbudgeted legal fees, that may have not been authorized by an elected official, but by an appointee.
In both instances Mr. Kelly has encountered resistance in the search for the truth.
