Dominos start to fall: Dale's buddy Gerald Tenbosch is going to jail!

Channel 12 Video

"A former treasurer for a local athletic association is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the organization. 55 year-old Gerold Tenbosch faces one count of felony theft. Springfield Township Police say he embezzled $16,500 from the Finneytown Athletic Association. A member of the association says she noticed the money was missing while conducting an audit of the account. She told police she confronted Tenbosch about the missing money last month. He resigned from his position. Tenbosch is scheduled to face a judge Friday morning."
Who is Gerald J. Tenbosch?

Gerald J. Tenbosch is the Executive Director of Invest In Neighborhoods, Inc. Dale Mallory sits on the Board of Trustees of Invest In Neighborhoods.

What is Invest in Neighborhoods?

In 1978 a private foundation awarded the City of Cincinnati a five year grant, putting money into a "Neighborhood Fund". The purpose of that fund was "to support planning and related activities that would strengthen community-based leadership and encourage the organization of active neighborhood councils." It is of this initiative that Invest in Neighborhoods (INN) was formed.
INN is an incorporated non-profit, a tax-exempt organization that allocates and distributes the income generated by the Neighborhood Fund. Many corporate sponsers give grants through INN, including the biggest names in this town. And to cap it off, the City of Cincinnati opened up the public spigot of taxpayer funds in 1990, when the City entered into a contract with INN to distribute funds for the Neighborhood Support Program (NSP Funds) and the Neighborhood Business District Support Program (NBDSF Funds).

If you check out their Federal filings you will find that over the past 5 year reporting period they have received well over two million dollars in public support (read= taxpayer dollars).

Think about this. Gerald Tenbosch just stole 16 grand from some little league teams, what the hell do you think he was doing to the City of Cincinnati? I will tell you, he was raping the taxpayer.

What does this have to do with Dale Mallory?

As already stated, Dale Mallory is a personal friend of Gerald Tenbosch. It doesn't end there. Dale also serves on the board of trustees of Invest in Neighborhoods, which gives money to communtiy councils (of which Dale was a president). [self dealing]

Some West End residents went through a long and protracted battle with Invest in Neighborhoods a few years back concerning Dale Mallory. It was cut short due to mounting legal costs.

Invest in Neighborhoods acts as an offical record keeper of Community Councils. Only officially recognized councils can get funding, and all councils keep their Constitution and ByLaws on file. Last year, Dale Mallory changed the bylaws of the WECC unilaterally and decided that term limits need not apply to him as he sought a third term as WECC President. People were furious, but when they went to Gerald J. Tenbosch he had Dale's back. I will post more on this later now that it has become topical.

After Dale got impeached, Tenbosch sent this letter to Shirley Colbert:

Tenbosch suspended all of our funding, "as a result of some officers trying to remove others from their positions", and he demanded a written report. He later commented that a CityLink laywer told him that the impeachment was illegal. The only known lawyer for CityLink is Tim Burke, Chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party.

If Greald J. Tenbosch was willing to steal 16 grand from little league teams, imagine what he was doing with the millions of public funds at his disposal. Imagine what he would do when teamed up with a willing and able fellow compatriot like Dale Mallory, who was Executive Director of Genesis Redevelopment and who appointed his own cronies to the Cincinnati Empowerment Corporation.

Tenbosch needs to be investigated. The first logical place that I would start would be to audit any disbursement from INN to the West End Community Council.

In ordinary times, the President of the West End Community Council could call for an audit or even perform one himself. But we live in special times. Even though Dale Mallory was impeached months ago, our President still has no access to the records of the organization. And as the letter from Tenbosch above states, we have been effectively cut off from all INN funding as well.

Things are about to change in the West End, whether the corrupt status quo likes it or not. And when the truth comes out it will be laid bare for all to see.

Tenbosch and Mallory were in bed, two peas in a pod. All they know how to do is siphon public funds.

Tenbosch also allowed the Pendleton Neighborhood Community Council to use $6,500.00 of the $7,000.00 of the Pendleton Communities funds (not voted on by the community) to hire attorney Tim Mara to threaten CPS to stop the sale of The School for Creative and Performing Arts, because Ty Provosty (President and 4 other dog owners in the neighborhood) wanted the school play yard as a poop/play yard for their pets.

They took the people's funds and spent it on an attorney to basically represnt the dogs.


Yet another soon to be abandoned building in Pendleton...Thanks Jerry!

Nate you should do stories or how most of the neighborhood community council are not welcoming the communities they are supposed to represent. About how they are using community funds for personal use. About how they used the Community council status to work against their own communities.

Get on them Nate!!!

Impeach Dale Mallory folks, since you are the only ones brave enough, to exposed the truth about Mr. Tenbousch, you should do stories on how most of the neighborhood community council are not welcoming the communities they are supposed to represent. About how they are using community funds for personal use. About how they used the Community council status to work against their own communities.

Somebody needs to expose the truths about community councils and their crooked dealings.

Many of these community councils set the agenda ahead of time on who will get what from the NSP funds & then shove it down the general membership's throats. It's the "elected" boards that do all this behind the scenes business.

Then after the money has been distributed, there's no accountability. None at all. In one neighborhood, a sizable chunk of money went unaccounted for, no paper trail.

Made me angry. At one time, I managed the NSP funds that were awarded to a not-for-profit, a very small, paltry sum of money. I went to great lengths to ensure a proper paper trail. I even went so far as to call Tenbosch when I had to justify an expenditure - locking filing cabinets for confidential records, as ordered by the City.

If my memory serves me correctly, Dale4Sale was going to use NSP money for private police down in the West End when the City failed to give into his demands for some cha-ching. Elite Security Services was the name of the company I think. Dale has his fingers in that pie, too.

Dale & Tenbosch need to be hung out to dry. Some get easy money & others have to damned near die for it. Where is the justice & fairness?

In case of Pendleton's community council, they don't even follow their own by-laws. Ty Provosty 05 Pres, Meredith Downton (Sec.), and 2-3 trustees were not even eligible to hold office but bent the rules to be elected, and most of those people with the exception of Provosty have only been seen 1 or twice since Nov. 2004 since they were elected.

Community council's should be held accountable for their actions.

In 2005, not one treasurer's report was presented to the council, nor was it questioned by the council as to why?

dale4sale/elite security ties have been on this blog before.
back in November, when Dale pimped CityLink, he also pimped Elite. Dale pimped Elite several years ago using IIN money.
Elite is wasting taxpayer dollars at the West End library. Those clowns sleep, play computer games and goof off all day long. Mallory Mafia gets Elite kickbacks. Elite/Dale are in cahoots for many years. Another D4S venture.

As I said before; Dale Mallory is a pawn in Tim Burkes chess game. Get rid of Tim Burke and you have a clear field to crooked politicians. I guess that because Tim Burke is a fat, sleazy white guy we probably won't deal with him, but go after poor assed little Dale Mallory. It is just a damned shame that the real powerbroker keeps slipping by.

Sun-Tzu said; "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" . If people can put away their dislikes for Nate Livingston's politics and pick up on the fact that he also hates Tim Burke, then you could combine the collective intelligence and resarch of all concerned and go after Tim Burke. You are wasting your time on Dale Mallory.

Please stay focused and put color aside as well. Black or white makes no difference, crooked is crooked, and crooks are running neighborhoods into the ground while using politics as the shield.

Anon 2:37, thanks for helping me out. I had it in my mind that Dale & Elite Security had strong ties. Thanks for the clarification.

Leave the Tenbosch family alone........

Gerry Tenbosch is a good family man, he has given hundreds of hours to his community, Finneytown, and he is loved and treasured by dozens who know him. He is suffering and dying, and his unsavory acts were only committed because of the many mind-altering medications he is taking. Leave him alone, and move on to working on Cincinnati's real problems -- crime and race relations.
