puppet show: Waste of Tax dollars and corruption
Fowke: Incompetent and
is no more.
Water gate scandal unfolding.
who wasted thousands of tax dollars finally has gone from the City
He tried many times and took any possible chances to extend his
contract. However, all of his attempts were unsuccessful. Benkovich
has become a symbol of incompetence and waste of tax dollars. He
contracted out water and wastewater emergency maintenance service
and scammed millions of tax dollars. Initially, the contract was
awarded for only $200,000.00, later on it was
increased to over $ 1.5 million. However, Benkovich made
sure to reimburse over $60,000 for his additional expenses
from tax dollars. Stay tuned more information to follow.
Fowke and Nepotism
corrupt practices are not limited to extending underhand contract
deals. In order to give his
son-in-law a post in the system, Benkovich fired one of the
employees from Whanapitate Water plant. Under Fowke’s watch,
Benkovich hired his son-in-law to fill the vacancy within 24 hours.
Former director of human resources division, Kevin Fowke, now is
City’s General Manager, failed to control these corrupt practices.
Sudbury tax payers were doomed and their sons and daughters were not
able to reach out any job opportunity in the City hall. Fowke
created a family business in City hall and now infiltrated into the
Bigger administration. His corrupt practices continue.
of dollars for Labour and employment external legal fees

to give away millions of tax dollars as legal fees for labor and
employment services. Fowke’s
department paid Sudbury based legal firm over 9 million dollars and
Toronto based legal firm another over million dollars. Under
his watch, labour and employment legal cost was sky rocketed. Large
amount of tax dollars wasted. Every year, City has owned legal
services department consumed over 1.5 million tax dollars which
consists of expenses for lawyers and support staff. Read

Exposed: Fowke's conspiracy
against Bigger administration
Fowke should be thrown in jail for wilful blindness and
wasting millions of tax dollars
must be held accountable for the contract negotiations and the
labour relations mess in the fire services division, which
cost taxpayers over $ 800,000
city's embattled, incompetent Human Resources Director - Kevin
Fowke, has failed in his back door attempt to conquer the CAO
office. Soon after former CAO Doug Nadorozny was fired and
escorted out from the City hall, Fowke was appointed interim
CAO. Controversially, Bob Johnston, from the Sudbury Airport
Authority, was then selected as a preferred candidate for the
the scenes, while Johnston tried to settle in at the City
hall, Fowke led corrupt bureaucrats in attempts to regain
their authority. Fowke utilized his old tactics and underhand
connections with other bureaucrats to discredit Johnston.
During the P6M project process, Bob Johnston was misguided by
Fowke and was provided information concerning labour relations
issues such as excessive overtime and absenteeism in the fire
services division. Fowke forced Johnston to address these
issues parallel to the P6M project. Addressing the labour
relations issues with P6M defeated the purpose of the project.
This controversial action triggered a very unsettling
situation with the Bigger administration. Johnston failed to
follow instructions from the Mayor and council by directly
addressing these issues before the council meeting. Read more
