Such promises appear to be stacking up too quickly for Hilton's Montana spokeswoman, Becky Shay, who is now seeking Smith's former post at the Two Rivers Authority after failing to receive a paycheck from Hilton after three weeks on the job.

...
Shay quit her job as a reporter covering Hardin for the Billings Gazette Sept. 25, when Hilton offered her $60,000 a year and a company car.
...
The fax said the company was no longer pursuing the project and would not be answering the information requested by Molloy, said Becky Shay, spokeswoman for Hilton's Santa Ana, Calif.-company. "It outlines that APF (American Police Force) was only in contract negotiations, did not do business in Hardin and has pulled out of contract negotiations," said Shay.
...
The end has come... Controversial private security contractor American Private Police Fore has officially backed out of a deal with Hardin, Montana, to run a local prison, APPF spokeswoman Beck Shay announced this afternoon. (Watch Shay's press conference here.) Shay said that Hardin's economic development agency, which signed the deal with APPF, "deserves a less controversial partner.
...
Shay addressed those concerns, in a manner of speaking, telling the media: We have not given you an opportunity to separate Michael Hilton from APF.
...
Still, Shay showed a hint of the strain that the controversy has taken. "It's been a pretty arduous process," she noted.
...
Martin said, "He's not here," and then referred all further questions to Shay.

...
Shay spent all day answering questions from media members and the public after an AP story linked the security firm's leader Michael Hilton to multiple bankruptcies and convictions for more than a dozen felonies.
...
"Michael disclosed this information to me before I agreed to come work for him," said Shay.
...
"I firmly believe APF is legitimate and a solid corporation," said Shay.
...
"That information won't be disclosed," said Shay.
...
Becky Shay says Hilton is currently in California on business and is expected back in Hardin in the next couple weeks.

"APF has been here for 10 months but it has never been stealth," said APF spokesperson Becky Shay at a press conference on Saturday morning.
...
During the press conference APF also refused to release any information on its funding or organization "The decision is the name of the parent company will not be released," said Shay.
...
"Why not put an APF logo on it," said Shay. "You know we're getting there. All of the decals were removed from the vehicles two days later. APF has consistently stated the community has nothing to fear and says its plans will help stimulate the Hardin economy. "This corporation's intention is to buy local and stay local and do local business as much as we can," said Shay. Residents appear split in their feelings over the company. Some want more information, but others believe it will be a tremendous boost to the area. The company plans to hold a job fair in Hardin the third week of October. Another development this weekend was the naming of Shay as APF's new public relations director. Shay was a reporter with the Billings Gazette who had covered the detention facility story for last few years. She announced on Friday she was leaving the paper and hosted the APF press conference Saturday morning.

According to their Public Relations Director Becky Shay, who was a special phone guest on Mr. Gonzales' program, the corporation was formed in California in February of 2009, and has a 10 year contract with the Two Rivers Authority to operate the facility.

...
Ms. Shay also added that A.P.F.'s intention to expand their operations into cities in multiple states within the United States.
...
According to Ms. Shay, the facility will hold only minimum and medium security detainees for a maximum period of one year.
Ms. Shay is an experienced journalist, having worked as a reporter for 20 years until she was hired as A.P.F.'s Public Affairs Specialist. While Ms. Shay seems to be a straightforward and accommodating spokeswoman, there seems to be many unanswered questions about A.F.P., and especially about the company's leader, Michael Hilton.
...
To be fair to Ms. Shay, she is just beginning her career as their Public Relations Director, and she no doubt has her hands full trying to bring herself up to speed with her new employers, having been on the job a mere 6 days.
...
Now.... Having established a bit of the background behind the controversy surrounding the Two Rivers Detention Center, It must be pointed out that according to multiple eyewitness sources from Hardin, except for Ms. Shay, all other A.P.F. employees stationed in and around the facility are foriegn born, mostly eastern European men who conduct themselves in a very intimidating and less than friendly manner.
...
I would like to thank Dan and Rich for their very hard work in bringing this very important inerview to us, and for your hard work and research in preparing to interview Ms. Shay.
...
I would also like to thank Ms. Shay as well for being gracious enough to appear on the show, and answer the questions she did.
