His reporting helped expose an ethics investigation when he obtained a recording of a town supervisor making what many considered to be racist comments inside a government building.
He also helped to uncover the arrest of a town board member in New York State who was accused of impersonating a police officer. That board member was later relieved of his duties when the report came to light.
Other stories include investigating the safety track record of nuclear power plants, neighbor property disputes, as well the mystery surrounding the location of the Joe Paterno statue after it was taken down and hidden by administrators at Penn State.
