More details in Thursday’s paper
Board members confirmed to the Rockland County Times that members of the Engelman family have been suspended from their duties at the Stony Point Ambulance Corps pending an investigation into alleged misappropriation of funds. Family members suspended include Corps President Mark D. Engelman and his wife Corps Vice President Chelle Cordero-Engelman, two of the longest serving members and the two most important decision makers.
Also reportedly suspended were Captain Marc Engelman and Patricia Stein. One board member loyal to the Engelmans reportedly resigned. Things got so heated at the late night executive session board meeting that the Stony Point Police Department midnight unit had to escort the family members from the premises.
According to reports that the Rockland County Times has received, alleged misuse of funds might include a Christmas party paid for with Ambulance Corps monies which critics have said only members of the Engelman family attended. There are also other allegations which the newspaper will investigate further and detail in Thursday’s print edition.
When asked about the situation Chelle Cordero-Engelman told the Rockland County Times, “No comment.”
The longtime ambulance corps member did share some thoughts publicly via her Facebook page. She posted a graphic indicating that “karma” will haunt those who have targeted her for disciplinary action.
The Corps recently opened a new state-of-the-art headquarters.
