Witnesses in the criminal case against ..., 28 Aug 2014 [cached]
Witnesses in the criminal case against LCTA Executive Director Stanley J. Strelish, 60, of Wilkes-Barre, and Chief Operations Officer Robb A. Henderson, 58, of Exeter have testified that public bus drivers have been padding numbers for years. Strelish and Henderson each face a string of felony and misdemeanor charges in connection to alleged "ghost riders" reported to PennDOT starting in 2007.
Prosecutors from the state Attorney General's Office allege Strelish and Henderson conspired to inflate ridership numbers, specifically records relating to the number of senior citizen riders, and also encouraged workers to repeatedly "hit the button" that drivers use to tally senior riders. PennDOT reimburses the authority for each senior-rider trip.
Defense attorneys have attempted to cast doubt on whether Strelish and Henderson had asked drivers to do it.

Stanley Strelish has been active in Luzerne County Democratic politics for decades, including past stints as treasurer of the Dupont Democratic Organization and as a member of the Third District Democratic Committee.
He said in 2003 he was inspired to pursue work in public service by his late father, John, who served as a longtime Dupont borough secretary and tax collector.
Some highlights:
• 1986-1994: Strelish was elected to two, four-year terms on the Pittston Area School Board, serving one year as board president and three years as Pittston Area's representative on the Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center board.
• 1995: He considered running for Luzerne County Recorder of Deeds but backed off when veteran officeholder Frank Castellino announced he was seeking another term.
• 1999: When Castellino opted out of running again, Strelish competed for the elected county row office.
Strelish told voters he would turn over his business, Strelish Trucking Co., to a relative if he were elected and punch a time clock to prove he was at work. Attorney C.J. Bufalino won the Democratic nomination, beating Strelish and three other contenders.
• 2003: Strelish took another shot at the county recorder of deeds seat, winning the Democratic nomination over Joseph Infantino, who barely campaigned.
• 2005: The county Transportation Authority hired Strelish for an unadvertised position as assistant executive director for $43,000. The position had been vacant for more than two years, and authority members said Strelish was the only applicant. Strelish, who attended Bloomsburg and Wilkes universities but never earned a degree, had expressed a repeated interest in the position, an authority member said at the time.
• 2006: Strelish is appointed executive director of the authority.

Did anyone tell Strelish THE FEDS ARE IN TOWN
Stanley Strelish
I really think the hit TruTV show "Worlds Dumbest Criminals" should feature Luzerne County. As you know Dupont native and LCTA Executive Director Stanley Strelish and Operations Director and Exeter native Robb Alan Henderson were indicted on the "Ghost Riders" scandal. Has anyone told Strelish - THE FEDS ARE IN TOWN! Keep in mind Luzerne County's disgraced judges Ciavarella and Conhan were indicted in January 2009. Anyone with an ounce of common sense would stop committing crimes after that. Not in Luzerne county, however. As previously reported by The Times Leader, a report commissioned by PennDOT found a "striking drop-off" of senior riders in July 2012, the month of Brominski's allegations: Drivers logged 71,782 senior riders in June, 55,556 in July and 36,280 in August. So up until County Councilman Ed Brominski starting asking questions, Strelish allegedly continued to demand drivers "hit the button." Oh yea, "hit the button" was the lingo used at the LCTA to log seniors riding the bus. The only rational thing I can think of Strelish could have been doing only after the feds were in town and continued to allegedly demand drivers to "hit the button," is he "hit his head" and didn't know any better. Wait, that's a great defense. Strelish should claim he "hit is head" everytime a driver "hit the button."
Please keep in mind, Strelish got his start in politics serving on the Pittston Area School Board back in the 90's.
Strelish is like everyone one else in power in the county.
Strelish and Henderson will probably end up throwing each other under the LCTA bus.
