Smile for the camera, Mr. Editor

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

Not sure I'll be smiling, but the video camera will be on and the microphone will be working when I testify at fired police Chief Kim Nuesse's civil service hearing next week.

A subpoena was delivered to the Register on Tuesday from Nuesse's attorney, K. Ronald Bailey. Unless I get some seriously persuasive legal advice against testifying, I'll be at the hearing Wednesday. I think I'm the only witness to be picked by both sides to testify. The crack Cuyahoga County law firm hired by the city only put me on their list to keep me out of the hearings, I think. Bailey added me to his witness list just this week.

It's so good to be wanted. I think.

Perjury is a felony Matt, becareful you are way to pretty for jail.

What do you mean PERJURY is a felony? If it was Baxter and some of these moron prosecutors here in Erie County would have been in jail years ago! As for ugly liar lawyers----I won't even go there.

Really? Perjury is a felony? Wow! I have a Summary Judgment where attorneys lied thru their teeth---under oath yet in an Affidavit and I showed proof positive they lied. Binette didn't say it was perjury. Guess I'll have to go down to Mr. Baxter's next week about this issue......

Here I thought Christmas was over.....now we all get to see Matt squirm. I mean how will he be able to contain himself with the woman he has been obsessing over sitting 15 feet away???? Try and restrain yourself Matt....I dont think it would bode well for Kimmies defense if you were seen drooling over her like the pathetic little school boy that you are. Your little world is about to come crushing down around you as we all are going to see you be confronted by someone other than us here in these blogs. You will have to explain to people actually in person and not hiding behind your computer screen, why you lied to everyone, including Matt Kine. Matt, youre a worm, a slug and I really hope you dont whimp out and hide behind "Legal Advice" telling you not to testify. Lets see if your entire testimony is on line, I will be sitting back eating my popcorn while I watch you and your high pitched liar voice is knocked back down to earth. Is that where you have been all this time Matt? Sitting at home in your hold in the wall, thinking of how you can lie and get away with it? Soon both you and Kimmie will be out of this city for good, CANT WAIT. Ill drive the moving van!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

He won't lie during direct questioning but wait to see when cross examined. There are things Kimmie has said that will come back to haunt this unETHICAL Editor. Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock, time is running out.

There's only one way you can answer the all important question. It will come to show either Mattie or Kimmie lying, which one will it be?????

i want to know what DON C. ICSMAN has to say... the stealth bomber, teflon don, the doctor of deceit, the maven of manipulation., and the 61 year old author of: "IT'S A MATTER OF INTERPRETATION," must be heard... will k. ron bailey have the courage to make the call??

Why does the SR keep deleting my comments about some of these Erie County prosecutors, including Baxter? Believe me, it is NOT slander----it is the GOD'S HONEST TRUTH. Why should they be allowed to get away with this kind of unethical crap?

Anonymous

The Sandusky Register deletes your comments about Baxter, because I'm sure he reads these comments, and clicks "abuse". Or, perhaps one of his lackies such as Barylski does it for him. Not to worry! Baxter will pay for all the abuse he dishes out. It's catching up with him. He'll soon be history, and not pleasant history! He may even go bye-bye for a while.

mike meinzer, c. stahl. b. crandell, d. murray jr., all have testifed on behalf of the city except the 5th member of quintet who were present during kim nuesse's inquisition at the firehouse in 2008.. number 5: " law director" DON C. ICSMAN,..why???
ICSMAN is the the architect of the chaos in sandusky govt. since 1998. yet he evades responsibility for his actions. k. ron bailey must put ICSMAN on the stand to testify. afterall, ICSMAN is the 61 year old author of 222 meigs st. book; "IT'S A MATTER OF INTERPRETATION,." that it why sandusky is in the quamire that exists today.... DON C. ICSMAN must speak.....

...are some of these comments actually coming from adults, especially X-mas all over? Delete this.....it's been rather evident that Nuesses' firing, as well this sham of a Civil Service Hearing is nothing more than a "planned event". Why our City Law Director wasn't called to testify is very interesting (can we get this man to come out of his vampire cave), and why certain individuals put on the witness stand chose not to be video-taped or recorded was rather predictible and cowardly. Especially the two that changed statements made in the Murman Report which was used as a tool to fire the Chief. I've also wondered why all those officers that felt so grieved, leading to a "collective grievance" haven't been called to testify. Wait, I think I forgot something about having to protect them from this? Ah yes, what a tangled web out leaders weave in order to deceive. Seems to be a pattern within this City/County!

This has to be first----a newspaper editor subpoened in a trial. But then what do you expect----this is Eeeeerie County and this isn't a trial this is a joke. Just another one of Erie County's infamous SCAMS complete with the retired Lorain County judge and the Cleveland lawyer crooks.

Hey guys, believe it or not the people are on to you. Guess you all weren't as intelligent as you thought you were!

Our City Law Director is a lawyer. Don't you know that lawyers can always find a loophole in the law to twist it around so he doesn't have to testify? I was really surprised that he never found a loophole for Baxter and the other idiot that changed her statements in the Murman Report. I also find it very hard to believe that this whole expensive fiasco is even taking place. I mean it so REEKS OF IMPROPIETY one would think these village idiots would at least be embarrassed if nothing else. Goes to show when it comes to their OWN agendas they will do anything to get their own dirty way....at the taxpayers expense, that is.

Kim is back on line and blogging away. At least you took off some time for Christmas.

This is going to go down in Sandusky history. What a horrible shame what these idiots have done to the city I was born and raised in. Disgusting!

Anonymous

What who has done to this city? I am sure you are talking about Ms. Nuesse herself. You are right, it is a shame what she has done to my city that I TOO was born and raised in. Why does she have to keep this craziness going? She doesn't want her job back, why would she? She just thinks she is going to line her pockets with my city's money. Now THAT'S disgusting!

Anonymous

Sorry, but I was not referring to Ms. Nuesse or Matt Westerhold or the Sandusky Register. End of story.

Anonymous

Who do YOU want to line their pockets with the city's (WE THE PEOPLE) tax dollars? The same ones that have been doing it for years----probably you yourself as one of them?

Anonymous

Nope, not Ms.Nuesse. Didn't get time off for the holiday either. In my line of work, they're called black-out dates. Make no mistake, there are those out here that support the ex-Chief. Just like the one cartoon of Don Lee's, once it's already in progress, it's da@n near impossible to stop a train wreck!

Anonymous

I don't think Ms. Nuesse even reads these blogs much less comments on some of the nasty comments that are made about her. Face it, they're are a lot of people in this town that are furious over this injustice and it won't be forgotten any time soon.

The big three testify Tuesday

Anonymous

Oh Kim reads these blogs and posts also. Nice try but your are practicing her method, lying.

Common Sense

Matt I would not testify in court with Joe "toothbrush" Cirigliano heading this case or Kevin Baxter's hand picked prosecutor interrogating you.
Kevin as always is going to say ots a family problem...Him raping, stealing,
cheating and lieing to the taxpayers is
being brought out because its a Family
Affair. That's what the lawyers for Kevin (which is all of them) are going to do.
