LETTERS FOUND IN F-91-261 FELONY FILE ARE ATTTACHED.



INTRODUCTION:



Following 30 letters varied greatly in form and style -

e. g. handwritten, hand-printed, and of course typed.



MOST AUTHORS FOLLOWED JOHN MALONEY'S STYLE.



Virtually all LETTERS SUPPORTING HARRY GUZNICZAK CAME

FROM LAWYERS or persons associated with him at

Franklin Public Schools or at MATC-Milwaukee.



Of course, one sees the usual letters from

supporting Guzniczak family members.



Teachers, students, school board members (statewide,

several thousand) are conspicuous by their absence.



Although Earl Mihlbauer - hired by Harry E. Guzniczak

as Executive Director of the Wisconsin VTAE Boards

Association - claims that his 1981-95 benefactor is

literally "Unsurpassed by any school administrator

in the entire state" Earl Mihlbauer's CLAIM IS NOT

REFLECTED IN ANY SUPPORTING LETTERS from students.



To lend perspective to this, MATC-Milwaukee alone

averages well over 50,000 students in annual

non-duplicated head counts. Also, Franklin

Schools is large. ZERO STUDENT SUPPORTERS.



Although Steinke bases everything on certified copies,

relying on paper alone makes research very difficult;

without unlimited lawyers, clerks and money that is.



SHOULD UNSURPASSED EDUCRATS HAVE ZERO STUDENT FANS?

To help EASY KEY WORD AND PHRASE RESEARCH into

Earl Mihlbauer's curiously very highly touted

"unsurpassed administrator" text is

left "as is" in body of letters.



The below ACCURATELY reflects ACTUAL WORDS used by

fans of convicted Franklin and MATC felon Harry.



An attempt is made to preserve all "typos"

without any spell checker corrections.



In all cases, Steinke strives for accuracy and

takes full responsibility for any errors.



Those seeing any errors are asked to be specific.



The below F-91-261 documents, taken as a whole,

show Harry Guzniczak's CONSTRUCTIVE KNOWLEDGE:



Tue 7/2  John MALONEY       Mon 7/29 Kenneth Moe

Tue 7/3  Frederick Wenzel   Wed 7/31 Edward Dudek

CLEVER "COMMUNITY SERVICE" PHRASE OCCURS 60 TIMES.



Above lawyers, family members or pecuniary friends

agreed that "unsurpassed" Harry Guzniczak should

do "community service" rather than go to prison.



The nature of the Guzniczak's public service remains

mysterious even as I write. Many of STEINKE'S HOPES TO

LEARN FROM DOC (Department Of Corrections) exactly, or

even approximately, about Harry's "community service"

HAVE BEEN DASHED. What, pray tell, did Harry do?

It now appears that he "worked" for his friends.



HOW "DELICATE" SHOULD "COMMUNITY SERVICE" BE?

Tommy Thompson was quoted in a newspaper article

considering my search for information on Harry

Guzniczak's post-conviction "public service" as

somewhat "delicate" leaving Steinke confused.



My INDELICATE research remains ROBUST and I've trouble

understanding what the Governor means by "delicate."

July 2, 1991            John F. Maloney      F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I have known Harry Guzniczak for more than 15 years.



During that time, I have dealt with him professionally

while he served as Superintendent of the Franklin

School District and during his tenure as Board

member and, eventually, Board President

of Milwaukee Area Technical College.



In my experience and from my perspective, I found

Harry to be tireless in his efforts to create an

outstanding educational environment for

the students of these districts.



Harry's work at Franklin has been exemplary and his

efforts at MATC sometimes required a commitment of

time and effort approximating a second full-time job.



Harry was not paid for his involvement at MATC,

and his efforts were exclusively for the

benefit of the District and its students.



The events culminating in the current sentencing is

an aberration unanticipated by and unpredictable

to those of us who know Harry.



Harry has, over the course of my acquaintanceship with

him, demonstrated a substantial interest in the good

of the overall community and commitment to spend

whatever time was necessary to improve the overall

quality of life in the metropolitan Milwaukee area.



Harry has always chosen the right action, whether it

benefitted him or not, which makes the current

situation very difficult to comprehend.



It is my sincere belief that it would be tragic

if the Court were to impose any jail time

as a result of this incident.



Harry's talents, skills, and abilities could be

used much better in improving the community

through community service.



I am painfully aware of the difficulty which

Harry confronted in tendering his resignation

from the Superintendent position for

the Franklin School District.



Obviously, this action has severely injuring

belief that he has more than paid for whatever

violations arose out of this incident.



I am available to answer any questions which

the Court might have, and would welcome the

opportunity to share further insights

regarding Harry's character, if necessary.



I intend to be present in Court on

August 20, 1991 in support of Harry.



Thank you for your consideration.



Sincerely,



John F. Maloney F-91-261

July 3, 1991           Frederick J. Wenzel   F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



This letter is being written on behalf of Mr. Harry

Guzniczak, who has been scheduled for sentencing on

Tuesday, August 20, 1991, in your court.



I have known Harry for the past ten years.



I had an opportunity to work very closely with

him when he was on the Board at Milwaukee Area

Technical College, as well as during our tenure

on the Wisconsin Vocational, Technical,

and Adult Education Boards Association.



There was no one more dedicated to

vocational education than Harry.



He worked tirelessly for the district

and the Association.



He represented our districts at the State Board

of VTAE, always with an eye on the students

and how the system can better deliver

its message to our many publics.



Harry was not only known to me professionally

but personally as well.



We had many conversations about how we all needed

to work harder to provide better opportunities

for all of our associates.



Harry invited me to conduct a retreat for his

Board in the Franklin School District.



This was a great opportunity to get to know Harry

and his staff and understand the programs

which he worked so hard to accomplish.



When Harry was ill I had an opportunity to talk

with him many times about his illness, and

told him on more than one occasion that

he simply had to slow down.



This was something he found most difficult to do

in his drive to develop his educational

programs in his school district.



I certainly hope that you will take all of these things

into consideration when you make your final decision.



Since Harry has been a devoted public servant, it is my

belief that probation along with community service

would certainly recognize what Harry has done

and provide for the community as well.



He could be doing those things which he does so well.



If you would like further information, please

do not hesitate to write or call.



Sincerely yours



Frederick J. Wenzel

Re: Harry E. Guzniczak



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



My initial contact came with Harry Guzniczak

approximately 25 years ago when I served on

the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.



Harry was involved in a wide variety of activities

which reflected a total dedication and commitment

to the community.



I worked with Harry in numerous ways over the years.



He was a guest lecturer for my public sector

labor course at the Marquette University

Law School.



Harry was a key person in working out the settlement

in the Milwaukee area school desegregation case.



As president of Milwaukee Area Technical College (SIC)

he helped institute many improvements and reforms.



Harry always cared about people.



He devoted his personal and professional life

to making Milwaukee a better place to live.



He was responsible for the high test scores and overall

achievement in the Franklin School District.



Harry made a (SIC) mistake.



He recognizes this.



He has paid a painful price in terms of community

awareness and personal suffering.





He could redeem himself in a constructive and positive

way by performing additional community service.



Harry has enormous talent which could be

used to continue to help others.



Sincerely,



Charles C. Mulcahy F-91-261

Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Judge, Circuit Court

Milwaukee County

Milwaukee, Wisconsin



Dear Judge Skwierawski,



Harry E. Guzniczak is scheduled to be sentenced

by you on August 20, 1991.



The purpose of this letter is to respectfully request

that Mr. Guzniczak's sentence be as lenient as

possible given his long record of effective

service to the education of young people

and to the Milwaukee community at large.



I was a professional colleague of Harry Guzniczak

for more than twenty years by virtue of the fact

that we both served as school administrators

in southeastern Wisconsin.



Through Mr. Guzniczak's service as a school

principal, superintendent of schools, an active

participant in activities that led to the settlement

of the desegregation lawsuit involving the Milwaukee

Public Schools and Milwaukee County suburban school

districts, President and member of the Board of

Directors of the Milwaukee Area Technical College,

and involvement in various local and state professional

education associations, he made significant and

continuous contributions to the development of

educational programs for children and adults.



It is my fervent hope that the nature and extent

of these contributions might be given every

consideration in the sentencing procedure.



Sincerely,



Sam J. Castagna F-91-261

PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL



July 9, 1991



Honorable Michael J. Skwierawski

Circuit Court of Milwaukee County



Dear Honorable Judge Skwierawski,



This is to respectfully request your consideration of

leniency in the final disposition of the case involving

Harry E. Guzniczak.



I have known Harry since 1945, when we voluntarily

enlisted in the U. S. Navy and went through "boot"

camp training together.



After World War II, we received similar

professional training and devoted our

adult lives to the field of education.



In 1961, Harry became my immediate supervisor

as superintendent to principal.





In addition to his military service, Harry has a long

record of community service, including the Milwaukee

Area Technical College Board, Wisconsin Vocational,

Technical and Adult Education Boards Association,

Chapter 220 Planning Council, Cooperation Education

Service Agency # 1, Public Policy Forum, Wisconsin

Mediation/Arbitration Study Committee, and numerous

local area and Franklin boards and committees

during his forty-one years in education.



Harry has had serious health problems with bypass

surgery during the 1980's, angioplasty procedures in

the fall of 1990, a heart attach in January of 1991,

and coronary bypass surgery in March of 1991.



He is involved in the cardiac rehabilitation

program at St. Luke's hospital.



Harry is deeply sorry for what has occurred

and has made restitution to the school board.



To the best of my knowledge, this incident (SIC)

was an isolated one (SIC) that will never repeated.



In summary, because of Harry's long and positive

record of community service, restitution, deep

remorse for his wrongdoing, poor health, and

his accepted responsibility for this (SIC)

unfortunate act (SIC), I would respectfully

request these items be considered in your

final disposition of this case.



Sincerely,

School District No. 5, Franklin

Franklin, Wisconsin 53132



Dear Ms. Haack and Members of the School Board,



I believe that you are aware that by virtue of

my own admission that I have been found guilty

of theft by Judge Michael Skwierawski.



The purpose of this letter is to apologize

for my improper and imprudent actions

that led to the charge (SIC) against me.



I want you to know that I am very sorry

for what I did and that the remorse that

I feel is virtually tearing me apart.



I am sorry for the shame that I have brought

to the school district, because it was wrong.



I hope that somehow the thirty-seven and a half years

that I have worked in Franklin with heart and soul

to help shape its educational program to its

current status of quality will be remembered.



There is not a day that goes by that I do not

give much thought to the Franklin Schools,

its students and staff.



I miss being part of it all.



Please find it in your hearts to forgive me.



Sincerely yours,



Harry E. Guzniczak

Mark L. Olson



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



As Franklin School District's only superintendent

of Schools, Harry Guzniczak has guided the

District from its first steps to national

recognition as an outstanding school system:



In 1989, Franklin High School was honored with an award

by the United States Department of Labor as one of a

handful of outstanding high schools in the country.



In addition, Mr. Guzniczak, individually, has won

recognition from his peers as an outstanding

administrator and as an active supporter and policy

maker in vocational, technical and adult education.



During my 15 years as School District legal counsel,

I have watched as Mr.Guzniczak worked to build a

strong teaching staff, emphasizing continuing

education, exchange of ideas within the system,

and support for new teachers from fellow teachers

and the Administration, so that the students

in the District would benefit from the

best that education could offer.



Mr. Guzniczak's oversight (SIC) of the District's

short-term and long-term educational goals and

aspirations has been the pivotal factor in

the growth of the District into one of

the state's finest K-12 school districts.



All of this has required Mr. Guzniczak's dedication

and the expenditure of enormous amounts of his

time and energy in its accomplishment.



Indeed, Mr. Guzniczak's medical history is a

testament to the extent to which he has been

willing to give of himself in order to further

the goals of the Franklin School District.



Along with everyone connected with the Franklin School

District and with Harry Guzniczak, I was stunned by the

revelations coming out of the District Attorney's

office which were detailed in your Court.



However, I believe that one cannot ignore the years

of service which preceded this aberration.



There is, here, also the consideration of

the complete (SIC) restitution of funds

to the District by Mr. Guzniczak.



Your Honor, as you consider proper sentencing in this

matter, I would urge that you consider the whole of

this man, his service and dedication as well as

the act (SIC) that brings him before you.



I know of the remorse and anguish

suffered by Harry Guzniczak.



I hope that further service to the community

would receive strong consideration as

an alternative to incarceration.



I believe such an alternative could well promote

the healing already taking place within the District,

and it would appropriately recognize the enormous

contributions which have been made to education

in the Franklin School District by Mr. Guzniczak.



Please feel free to contact me should you

have any followup questions as to the

matters addressed in this letter.



Very truly yours



DAVIS & KUELTHAU, S.C.

July 10, 1991             Jose F. Vasques     F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



This letter is being written regarding

the matter of Harry E. Guzniczak.



I have known Harry since July, 1985 when I was

appointed to serve as a member of the Board of

Directors of the Milwaukee Area Technical College.



My entire acquaintance is based on our

serving together on the MATC board.



Throughout this time I was impressed with the

dedication and commitment that Harry gave

to all of his board responsibilities.



He was willing to assume positions of leadership

and carried out these responsibilities

in a professional manner.



In addition to his local board involvement,

Harry also assumed leadership positions

in the Wisconsin Boards Association.



Again, he carried out his responsibility

in a competent manner.



I am asking that in your deliberations as to the type

of final disposition you impose on Harry that you take

into consideration that many years of community service

he gave to the Metro Milwaukee community.



I hope that my letter will also contribute

insight for your deliberations.



I would also like to make an offer concerning

possible community service that Harry could

provide as part of his sentencing.



I would propose that you consider having

Harry provide community service at

Neighborhood House of Milwaukee, Inc.



My willingness to offer my agency for this type of

activity is based on my knowledge of Harry's

extensive administrative experience and

his professional approach to his work.



I am convinced that given this opportunity Harry

would want to share his administrative experience

and further demonstrate his remorse.



Sincerely,



Jose F. Vasques

Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Milwaukee County Courthouse



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I am writing to Your Honor on behalf of my brother

Harry E.Guzniczak.



After service in the Naval V5 Reserve,

Harry worked his way through college.



He then decided to persue (SIC) a career in education.



He commuted to a teaching job in Janesville Wi. (SIC)

This was followed by a teaching position

in the Hales Corners School System.



His work and dedication brought him the opportunity to

serve in the Franklin School System as a Principal.



He was appointed Supervisor of Franklin Schools and

has directed and guided the Schools of Franklin

for the greater part of his life.



While leading the Franklin Schools he also

served for several terms on the Board of MATC.



His dedication to teaching and education

has always been evident.



Being Supervisor of Schools in Franklin,

a new district, was a challenge into

which he has thrust his heart and soul.



Everyone (SIC) with whom I have come into

contact with had nothing but praise

for his hard work and dedication.



Through the years students with whom he had contact

had always given Harry the credit for the high

quality education they had received.



Page 2 7-12-91 Henry's letter on behalf of Harry.



My relationship with Harry through all

sixty-three years has been of close family.



Any commitments Harry had with me were always honored.



He is my only brother.



Please consider the whole of the man in this

situation, in which Harry is ending such

a dedicated and illustrious career.



Yours truly,

Judge Michael Skwierawski

Circuit Court of Milwaukee County

901 North Ninth Street,

Milwaukee, WI 53203



I am writing this letter on behalf

of my father Harry E. Guzniczak.



During the past twenty-five years of my life

I have had the finest example of dedication

to work and respect for other people.



This example has been my father.



His commitment to public service took priority

to most other aspects of his life.



His long hours of work often took him away from certain

family events that I know he whole dearly missed.



His efforts have gone well beyond the call of duty and

I believe that he has made a lasting difference in the

lives of many students, both in the Franklin Schools

as well as those in vocational education throughout

the State of Wisconsin.



All of his sacrifices during his career have been

strictly personal, both to himself and to his family

and are a result of his devotion to his work.



I respect the fact that my father has accepted

responsibility for this matter and that

he has made restitution.



He is feeling an immense amount of sorrow

for being involved in this situation.



Still his first concern is hoe (SIC)

this affects those around him.



I am concerned about my father and

also very supportive of him.



That is why I am writing this letter.



Through this experience he has become withdrawn

and distant from those close to him.



His health has also greatly deteriorated.



With respect to this, I request that the court

treat my father with leniency in this matter.



His contributions to others can still amount to

many in the future and I hope that the court

will take this into consideration.



With Best Regards,

Honorable Judge Skwierawski

Hausman - McNally s c Suite 2000

633 W. Wisconsin Ave.

Milw. WI 53203



Dear Judge Skwierawski,



This letter is written a behalf of

my father Harry Guzniczak.



My hope is that by reading this, some light will be

shed on my father's career as well as his family.



The most prominent memory I have of my father, while

growing up, is the amount of time he spent working.



A normal day began at 7:00 in the office, home at 5:00,

dinner at 6:00, leaving again for an 8:00 meeting

at least three days a week, not to return

until after I was asleep.



The nights he did not have a meeting were spent in

the basement, at his desk, doing school work.



It wasn't that he didn't have time for family,

he made time.



But making that time took a lot of effort on his past.



My father lived & breathed the Franklin

School System for 40 yrs.



Over those years he became involved with so

many organizations & committees on both

a local and state level.



I often asked him why he remained at Franklin

with so many other opportunities available.



It all came down to his love for Franklin.



This trial has questioned his loyalty, and that

has absolutely devistated (SIC) my father.



He is extremely embarrassed and very remorseful

over this to the extent that it seems to be

hindering his health.



In 1979, my father suffered a heart attack

and under went by-pass surgery.



Within two weeks he was back in the office.



the reason for the recovery, other than his age,

was he had something to go back to.



He still has not fully recovered

from his Feb. operation.



Granted he is older, and has suffered two

additional heart attacks, but the real

reason is there is nothing to recover for.



My father is, was, and always

will be a work-oholic.



The sentencing is your decision.



I only hope you take into consideration

all the good he has done over his career.



And use this opportunity to put his talents,

and experience, to work, to do more good

things within the community.



Very truly yours,

Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Branch 12 Milwaukee County Courthouse

901 North 9th Street Milwaukee, WI 53233



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I am writing you on behalf of Harry Guzniczak.



First of all, let me state that this

communication was not solicited.



I called Harry and asked if it would be appropriate

for me to write and he was very appreciative.



While I had heard of Harry Guzniczak for some period

of time, it was not until several years ago when I

served a three year term on the Milwaukee Area

Technical College Board that I came to know

him as a fine public servant and a friend.



The criminal activity with which he was

charged came as a complete surprise to

me and it was totally out of character.



However, I do believe that if there was ever a

situation and person that called for probation and

community service, it would be applicable here.



No, Judge, I don't feel that "special treatment" should

be afforded a prominent citizen or "white collar crime.



However, if "punishment" is the purpose of serving

time in jail, then I am sure that Harry Guzniczak

has already been punished enough and the pain

will continue to last.



There is no chance that this kind of conduct would

be repeated, and he in no way represents

a "threat to society.



Harry's record of civic activity would certainly

indicate that our community would be better served by

utilizing his experience rather than "putting him away.



Franke's Page 2 of letter to the Court



Hon. Michael Skwierawski - 2 - July 15, 1991



Though justice be thy plea, consider this.



That in the course of justice, none of us should see

salvation: We do pray for mercy. And that same pray

doth teaches all to render the deeds of mercy.



Sincerely,



Harry F. Franke

Rus F. Slicker, Ed. D



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I respectfully submit this letter of support on behalf

of Harry E. Guzniczak who is to appear before you

for sentencing on August 20, 1991.



Mr. Guzniczak has been a close professional colleague

since 1982 and I believe I can speak knowledgeably

about his character and conduct.



Mr. Guzniczak has demonstrated a verifiable

lifetime commitment to public service.



For ten years he provided leadership to the Board

of Trustees of Milwaukee Area Technical College -- an

unpaid position requiring countless hours of work and

involvement with little reward or public recognition.



Mr. Guzniczak willingly took on this task at a crucial

point in the history of the College and provided the

professionalism, dignity, and integrity that helped

restore public confidence in this vital institution.



When the state technical college system needed a strong

voice of leadership, Mr. Guzniczak volunteered for

that role and led the VTAE Board's Association

through a period of redefinition and renewal.



He was instrumental in shaping new

legislation and state policy.



These efforts and contributions, however, did not

come without a heavy personal cost to Mr. Guzniczak.



He sacrificed, weeks, months, and years of his

private life in this service to the community.



His untiring efforts drained him emotionally

and exacerbated a health condition that

was already tenuous.



Yet he never wavered in his commitment or in

his efforts on behalf of the public good.



As you make your decision on August 20, I urge you

to give strong consideration to Mr. Guzniczak's

lifetime of contributions to his community.



He has already paid a heavy debt to society.



Allowing him to continue his public service may

be the most appropriate expression of justice.



Sincerely,



Rus F. Slicker, Ed. D.

The Honorable Michael Skwierawski

County Courthouse

901 N. 9th St. Milwaukee 53233



Dear Judge Skwierawski



My initial knowledge of Mr. Harry Guzniczak was

over 30 years ago when the Cooperative Educational

Service Agency was organized of all the school

superintendents in the Milwaukee area.



Part of my duties as former executive director of the

Citizens' Governmental Research Bureau (now the Public

Policy Forum) was to attend the CESA monthly meetings

for many years, where I had frequent contacts with him.



Likewise during the six years he and I were Board

members of the Milwaukee Area Technical College

(he served longer than I).



I always found him dedicated to community service

in the public interest in countless ways,

far beyond the normal requirements.



I do not think incarceration would be in the

best interest of society and our community.



I am informed he made full restitution of the funds.



I respectfully suggest for your consideration a number

of hours or weeks of constructive community service in

some human resource agency in the Milwaukee community.



If you determine that a money fine is called for,

I am advised that the direct and indirect costs for

obtaining a new superintendent for the Franklin School

District may be in the range of $15000 to $20000.



Of course the District would incur this cost had

Mr. Guzniczak retired in the natural course of

events without an offense being involved.



I am confident you will evaluate wisely Mr. Guzniczak's

life-long record of professional service to the School

District and to the many other institutions which he

served so well, when you determine the requirements of

justice to Society, as to the nature of the punishment.



If you have questions related to my knowledge

of Mr. Guzniczak, I will do my best in reply.



Sincerely

I am a resident of the City of Franklin and

have known Harry Guzniczak both personally

and professionally for twenty-five years.



As superintendent of School District #5, he was

constantly vigilant in the pursuit of excellence.



the many awards earned by the City's schools

are due in large part to his leadership.



My three children, who were educated in the

Franklin Public School System, are in agreement.



Harry was one of the most dedicated professionals I

have ever had the privilege to know and work with.



On a personal basis, Harry was extremely giving

of his time to County and State committees

and to numerous local functions.



The point of this letter, of course, has to do

with his sentencing set for August 20, 1991.



Yes, he committed a crime and was convicted.



But, having attempted to put myself in his place,

I do not feel a jail sentence would be appropriate.



No one has received a heavier sentence

than Harry has placed on himself.



He has lost his job, his health, and his standing,

at least to some, in the community.



Given Harry's background, I doubt that you could

find a better candidate for community service.



I know that conviction requires some sort of

sentence, and I implore you to give this very

good man probation and/or community service.



Yours truly,

(On Brown Deer Schools letterhead)



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



This is a letter of support for Mr. Harry E. Guzniczak,

the former superintendent of schools for the

Franklin Public Schools.



I would like to offer some of my opinions of Harry

for you to consider prior to his scheduled

sentencing on August 20, 1991.



As a colleague of his for the past 12 years,

I believe I know him quite well.



In my opinion, Harry made an extremely unfortunate

decision, but the thousands of good decisions he

has made during his professional career certainly

deserve to be considered now.



The many years of excellent service to the greater

Milwaukee community and his present health

condition also should be considered.



In addition to his regular duties as superintendent and

his many other community contributions, Harry also was

a leader in the settlement of the MPS lawsuit against

the suburban school districts several years ago.



I have personal knowledge of the hundreds of hours

Harry devoted to the fair settlement of this issue.



Not only did he actively participate in the process,

he also played a key role for his district as

well as for all districts involved.



Harry was the person who never stopped trying

to improve the quality of the agreement.



Harry has voluntarily devoted thousands of

hours to serve on the MATC board.



He was recognized several times for his faithful (SIC)

efforts to improve MATC in order to benefit thousands

of students who moved through that institution during

his nine years of service there.



I would hope that you will make use of Harry's talents

as a person who can help children as you consider

what action to take regarding his offenses.



Community service in some private school environment

seeking grant money, organizing projects, or working

directly with students would continue to benefit the

community and help make up for what has been done.



Harry is simply a good man who deserves your

consideration in this matter.



Please let me know if there is any further way

I can be of assistance to you as you consider

your options in this matter.



Yours truly,



Ken Moe

The Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Milwaukee County Courthouse

901 North Ninth Street Milwaukee, WI 53233



RE: Harry E. Guzniczak



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



It is with a saddened heart that this letter is written

to you, as it involves a long-time friend and a person

whom I have respected for many years -- a man who has

stood before you and admitted guilt to the commission

of a serious crime. (SIC)



I have no way of addressing the how and why Harry

Guzniczak went wrong, but I can share with you my

insights as to this man as it affects your

decision in sentencing.



Our family came to know Harry and his wife,

Vivian, in 1958 when we became neighbors,

and out that relationship developed a

personal and business friendship.



During that 33-year time span, we became good

friends and on a great many occasions

socialized with his family and friends.



For a number of years, our firm served as legal counsel

to the Franklin School District and as the district's

attorney, I spent many and long hours with him and

the members of the School Board.



That personal and business relationship frames

my opinion of the kind of person he is,

privately and publicly.



I know Harry Guzniczak to be a loving,

caring father and a devoted husband.



Soft-spoken, evenly tempered and mild of manner

would best characterize his personal traits.



His boys were taught by the example of their father

through the active practice of his religion, adherence

to home-spun values and the genuineness of the

relationship he enjoyed with his many friends.



I appreciate that what I have written is now ironic in

view of what happened, but nevertheless, the Guzniczaks

have two fine sons who will find their way through life

as good citizens because of the quality of life

they enjoyed in their upbringing.

====================================================

[TOP][CONTENTS][INDEX][END][MAIL][GJS] Page 20 of 43

====================================================



FRISCH DUDEK MILWAUKEE OFFICE 7/31/91 Page 2 of 4



During the many years that I knew Harry Guzniczak,

I never heard him speak an unkind word of anyone,

nor witnessed any action on his part that was

anything but exemplary.



He and Vivian have always enjoyed a close

group of friends, from all walks of life.



They frequently entertained at home and

those were always happy occasions.



They made sure their friends were always comfortable

with one another and they set the tone.



It can be truly said that he does not have a bad

thought about anyone or a mean bone in his body.



If Harry Guzniczak had any failure in his filial

relationships, it was in the time that he

devoted to his work and community affairs.



He is industrious to a fault.



His position took him to evening

meeting after evening meeting.



but then there was so much to do as the District

was experiencing substantial growth in the



number of students that had to be educated.



He took that District from literally a one-room

school house, to one of the best managed

school districts in the state.



Harry Guzniczak was ahead of his time

in the curriculum he created for Franklin.



He initiated high-tech studies for his students

years before others began thinking about it.



As a growing school district, without a substantial

industrial or business base, he lobbied long and

hard for financial aid from the state to ease

the tax burden on the property owners.



This required more of his time away from home.



The 60's witnessed the organization of school teachers.



This new relationship required his leadership in

negotiating fair contracts for his teaching staff,

while balancing that cost with what the taxpayers

could reasonably afford.



The 60's and the '70s involved a building expansion

in Franklin that, again, necessitated long hours as

he undertook the lead role in the construction of

the new facilities and the bond financing that

was attendant to that process.



His energy was limitless when it came

to serving his Distict.



His goal throughout was to bring the best in academics

so that his students were prepared to undertake their

continuing education in college or prepared to enter

the labor force on graduation.



He never lost sight of that goal and he always spoke

of what more could he do to better educate

the young people in his charge.



He did all of this without bravado and without

ever lauding his own accomplishments.



He has no ego when it comes to evaluating his role in

the District's achievement in academic excellence.



No wonder then, that his

====================================================

[TOP][CONTENTS][INDEX][END][MAIL][GJS] Page 21 of 43

====================================================



FRISCH DUDEK MILWAUKEE OFFICE 7/31/91 Page 3 of 4



reputation grew in the academic community as

one of the state's premier superintendents.



His leadership was effective and his record over

the years confirmed that he got things done.



Harry Guzniczak was recognized as a community

leaders in Franklin in his role as superintendent.



His record also earned him the respect in

Wisconsin's secondary education circles as

one of its most able school administrators.



He also assumed a leadership role at the Milwaukee

Area Technical College when there was a need to

re-establish community confidence in that institution.



This, again, required more evenings away from home and

more personal time committed to community service.



Harry Guzniczak was the right man at the right

time for the Franklin School District.



I honestly believe that it never would have achieved

its academic excellence at the reasonableness of the

cost to the taxpayers without his dedication, without

his loyalty and without his inspiring leadership.



All of these efforts earned his a richness of

life and community standing not given to many.



His is a life's story of enrichment by what he

accomplished as a public servant that could be

recounted with pride by him and his family

in the sunset years of his life.



However, this dream has been shattered.



His actions have taken that past away from him

along with the memories of a fulfilling

personal and professional life.



The shame of what he did in his position of public

trust comes from the countless thousands that he

has disappointed by his failing which will

torment him during the remaining years of

his life and, unfortunately, obscure a

lifetime of good deeds and

community service.



This is his cross to bear, and bear it he will,

but that one shameful episode should not eclipse

all the good he accomplished and brought to

his students and the people in Franklin.



Harry Guzniczak is repentant and crushed

for what he did.



The public humiliation he has suffered is more

of a penalty than anything that the court can

do in sentencing him to any term in prison.



The question becomes, how much of a penalty should

Harry Guzniczak have to pay for the breach of

trust he enjoyed through his leadership role?



I well understand that white-collar crime needs to be

deterred and punished as other actionable crimes,

however, in this situation this quiet, humble

person has already lost his past.



He has been demeaned and humiliated by the

disclosure of his conduct, beyond rationality.



He has suffered more than any

imprisonment could do to him.



Harry Guzniczak needs to go on with the remaining

years of his life to work out of this awful

nightmare that has befallen him and his family.



Franklin and the entire Wisconsin educational

community will be better served

====================================================

[TOP][CONTENTS][INDEX][END][MAIL][GJS] Page 22 of 43

====================================================



FRISCH DUDEK MILWAUKEE OFFICE 7/31/91 Page 4 of 4



if Your Honor would order him to community service

where his proven leadership and academic

experience could be utilized.



Harry Guzniczak is worthy of such a

consideration by Your Honor.



I don't condone in any way what he has done.



But he is a good man.



Justice will be served by having him spend such time

as you may determine to satisfy society's need

to deter such conduct of its citizenry.



I have no hesitation in representing to the Court that

Mr. Guzniczak, given the opportunity to serve this

community as you may ask, will conduct himself

in that task with honor and dignity and it may

mark the beginning for him in regaining some

of the trust and confidence he once enjoyed.



Your understanding and compassion for what

Mr. Guzniczak has or will continue to suffer

for his misdeed (SIC) in ordering him to perform

some community service would be justified by what

has otherwise been an illustrious career of public

service by this uncommon man.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53233



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



On August 20, 1991, Harry Guzniczak will appear

before you for sentencing on his theft charge.



Judge Skwierawski, what a wonderful man

Harry Guzniczak is.



As a young man, I started dealing with

Mr. Guzniczak on a professional basis.



I witnessed over the years, the absolute fairness

and courteousness extended to all who came

in touch with him.



His staff admired him for his human regard for

all, not only his professional conduct.



Over the years I sought Mr. Guzniczak's personal

opinion on personal matters, because I so

respected his willingness to give of his

time, but I valued his opinion so highly.



When this theft incident (SIC) became public,

I absolutely couldn't believe it.



I talked to the people he worked with on a

daily basis, and they all were just as surprised.



The one common element that was shared by any one

I talked to, even though it appeared he was guilty

of this act, was no one lost their respect and

total confidence in Mr. Guzniczak.



Shocked yes, but only a saddened feeling,

as we all knew this was an absolutely

isolated mistake (SIC) in his life.



A life time of admiration, tarnished

by a needless mistake.



Your honor, I ask your leniency for Harry Guzniczak,

because he can be a tremendous asset to the community

if permitted to do public service.



Because I know this man well, I have

forgiven him in my heart.



You cannot forgive him, but I pray you are lenient

to this very remorseful, beautiful man.



Thank you.



Sincerely,

Re: Mr. Harry E. Guzniczak



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I am writing this letter to you for your

consideration prior to the sentencing

of Mr. Guzniczak on August 20, 1991.



As you know, as a former Assistant District Attorney, I

have participated in many sentencings and have made

many recommendations to judges over the years.



While I am sending this to you now in a much different

capacity, I can assure you that I have taken into

account many of the same considerations that I

know must be looked at a time when someone

is to be sentenced.



I have known Mr. Guzniczak for

approximately nine years.



As an attorney for the Franklin School District,

I got to know him very well, having worked

closely with him on many occasions.



During that time, I formed the greatest respect

for him and admired his dedication to the School

District and his desire to provide a quality

education to the students he came in contact

with, including those transfer students from

the Milwaukee Public School System.



His commitment to any project he worked

on was always 110%.



Mr. Guzniczak is in fact synonymous with

the Franklin School District.



During the time that I have known him, I know

that others within and without the profession

shared those same thoughts about him.



I, along with many others, was deeply saddened

when I learned of the events that have brought

him before this Court.



I urge you not to overlook what he has contributed to

the Franklin School System, as well as the Franklin

community as a whole, and education in general

throughout the Milwaukee Metropolitan Area.



I also know that he has been a dedicated husband

and father who has suffered immensely from this.



He is deeply remorseful for what he has done.



I am confident that he would never again engage

in such activity, nor would he come before the

criminal justice system in the future.



Mr. Guzniczak is clearly a man of many talents

and has a lot to offer to the community.



I know that you will take into account his past

unblemished record and his dedication and service

to the Franklin School District and the community.



It is my understanding that full

restitution has been made.



I am confident that justice would not be denied in

this particular instance if the sentence

involved an alternative to incarceration.



His lack of any prior contacts with the criminal

justice system, his years of contribution to the

District and community, his age and present health,

along with restitution having been made, should serve

as a significant basis for strong consideration to

impose a sentence involving something other than

incarceration.



I appreciate the opportunity to submit these comments

to you and hope they will be helpful to you in

deciding what sentence is appropriate.



If I can be any further assistance or should you

require any additional information concerning

anything addressed in this letter, please

feel free to contact me.



Very truly yours

The Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Milwaukee County Court House

901 North 9th Street

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53233



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I write this letter as a plea for leniency in the

sentence that you are considering concerning my

guilt related to the theft charge (SIC) against

me that has been before the court.



I want you to know that I am very sorry for what

I did and that I did make restitution, but that

the remorse that I feel is with me every minute

of the day and at night as I try to sleep.



The pain that I feel is because what

I did was terribly wrong.



I deeply regret the shame that it has brought to the

Franklin School District and to its students and staff.



I also anguish over the pain that I have brought to my

dear wife, Vivian, to whom I have been happily married

for forty years and to our two sons who are both

advancing in their careers in the Milwaukee area.



There is little doubt that the stress that I personally

live with has greatly contributed to aggravating and

also accelerating a deteriorating coronary condition

for which I have been under medical treatment for

more than a dozen years.



I had suffered a second heart attack on

January 1, 1991 and had undergone a second

coronary by-pass operation on March 1st.



In addition, I have had three angioplasty procedures

during the course of my treatment.



I am currently taking five prescribed drugs for

my condition, including high blood pressure,

and to relieve my symptoms.



I have also been diagnosed as being HTLV positive which

means that I am infected with the human T-cell leukemia

virus; this as a result of a blood transfusion.



In addition to my work as superintendent of schools in

Franklin, I have served as a member of the Milwaukee

Area Technical College Board for almost nine years,

three of which were served as chairperson of the board.



My service to M.A.T.C. involved a time

commitment of about twenty hours a week.



I resigned my position on the board in the early

fall of 1990 after experiencing severe coronary

symptoms which were temporarily relieved by an

angio-plasty procedure.



Your honor, I believe that I have been and will

continue to be duly punished by the community

for what I have done.



I have left my 42.5 years as a Wisconsin educator,

37.5 which have been in Franklin, in disgrace.



I pray that my long and positive experience as an

educator and my record of community activity will

help me to be considered for probation and/or

community service as an alternative to jail.



I assure you that I am not a threat to society

nor will the conduct for which I am before

you ever be repeated.



Please allow be to live the rest of my life

with my wife and near to my family.



Thank you for considering my plea.



Sincerely yours,

|On Boards Association stationery|

|The Association has 144 members |

|Nine persons from each district |



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I write this letter on behalf of Harry E. Guzniczak

with a heavy heart and a great deal of sadness.



As Executive Director of the Wisconsin VTAE District

Boards Association, I had the opportunity to work

closely with Harry for five years, two when he was

Vice-President and Legislative Chairperson, two as

President and one as a Board of Directors member.



Harry was a true leader for Wisconsin

Technical College Trustees.



He set an example of professionalism as a member of

the MATC-Milwaukee Board of Trustees and encouraged

all his colleagues to be policy leaders.



He was President of the Association during one of

the most troubled times in Wisconsin Technical College

history when the Wisconsin Legislature was considering

making the Technical college System a state funded,

state governed system.



Harry's leadership was instrumental in motivating

his colleagues to take up the fight and retain

the colleges local governance.



During these five years, he was one of

my immediate supervisors.



I found his dedication to this school, his community

and his state to be of the very highest caliber.



He expected MATC to be exemplary in its

service to the community.



He expected the Boards Association to set policy

standards of a high quality that clearly served

the people of the state of Wisconsin.



His dedication to his educational profession is

literally unsurpassed by any school administrator

in the entire state.



This is evidenced by his 41 years, 33 as

superintendent of Franklin.



Harry's misjudgment and subsequent conviction is

a black mark on a long and exemplary service

to the citizens of Franklin.



He cannot go back and he cannot undue

what has been done.



How will Harry compensate for his wrongdoing?



I cannot believe that a prison term would serve

the public good, but would only serve to more

severely complicate his fragile health.



I would encourage you to be lenient with my

friend who has given his entire life to the

boys and girls of Franklin, Wisconsin.



Ask him to use that great expertise he has

to help those who are less fortunate than

he through community services.



I truly respect your difficult decision

and ask your kindest consideration.



Thank you.



Sincerely

Dear Judge Skwierawski,



My husband has apparently made a (SIC)

gross error (SIC) in judgement.



I sincerely believe this to be the only one. (SIC)



We have been married for forty years (this past June)

and have been friends for forty-five.



He has been a terrific father.



He has been a loving husband and I am a better

and stronger person because of our marriage

and relationship.



His professional life has been devoted to education

and the people who are involved - teacher, students,

administrators, school board members and support

staff as well as parents in the community - they,

in effect, were considered an extended family.



His door was always open to his "extended family"

even when the problems they needed (and looked for)

help with were not school or education related.



He has spent untold hours helping them

to resolve their personal problems.



Even as his health problems became more

apparent about twelve years ago he continued

his "being there" for all who sought his help.



He has been in love with educating boys and girls

since he took his first step into his assignment

in a one room school.



Having to sit on the sidelines now is

probably his worst punishment.



I can't make excuses for him, but I hope you

will be able to look at the whole man and

balance the scales accordingly.



He is a good man.



Sincerely,



Vivian L. Guzniczak F-91-261

The Honorable Michael Skwierawski

Milwaukee County Court

Milwaukee County Courthouse

901 North Ninth Street

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53233



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I am sending you this letter as a request

involving one of my colleagues,

Harry E. Guzniczak.



I understand that on Tuesday, August 20 you

will be sentencing Mr. Guzniczak for his

violation of the public trust.



I have known Mr. Guzniczak both as a teacher

and as an administrator for 13 years.



He has, and hopefully will continue, to represent

the work ethic and excellence in education

which our country strongly needs.



I realize that Mr. Guzniczak has violated the

public trust, and I realize there are those who

would want him to spend time in an institution.



I would strongly encourage you not to sentence

Mr. Guzniczak to time in an institution.



Mr. Guzniczak has a wealth of knowledge and experience

which could benefit those who are less fortunate.



I would strongly encourage you to require

Mr. Guzniczak to do community service of an

educational nature which would benefit those

who truly need what Mr. Guzniczak has to offer.



I would suggest that Mr. Guzniczak be required to

perform 12 to 15 hours per week of educational

services to the Grand Alterative High School

for a period of possibly up to two years.



I have included a letter from the Grand Alternative

High School explaining a bit about their program

and stating their need to utilize the services

which Mr. Guzniczak could offer.



For those of us who know Mr. Guzniczak, it is difficult

to comprehend why he broke the public trust, and that

truly is an error and inexcusable.



It would be simple to just prescribe some time to be

spent in a public institution, but Mr. Guzniczak has

so much to offer and there are so many in need of

what he has to offer, it would seem to make more

sense to have Mr. Guzniczak provide a service to

society as compared to being a burden upon society.



I know Mr. Guzniczak will do whatever he is asked

to do with great zeal, and he will go above and

beyond what is required of him.



I would also like the court to know what I am aware of

Mr. Guzniczak's health problems and upon conferring

with his counsel, it is my understanding that the

services to the young people and adults at the

Grand Alternative High School is not too much

for Mr. Guzniczak to handle.



Again, I strongly encourage the court to require

community service of Mr. Guzniczak as an appropriate

consequence for his violation of the public trust.



Respectfully



William R. Hittman

August 12, 1991             Michael R. Wherry F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



This letter was not solicited by either

Mr. Guzniczak or his counsel.



I am writing a letter of this nature for the first

time in my life because I sincerely believe that

Harry Guzniczak is a man of integrity and dedicated

community commitment who made a solitary mistake for

which he has already paid an inordinately high price.



By way of background, I came to know Mr. Guzniczak

as the Superintendent of the Franklin School

District which was a labor client of the

Mulcahy & Wherry, S. C. law firm

which was a later client of the

Davis & Kuelthau, S.C.law firm.



My direct involvement with him started in

approximately 1975 when I was asked to

staff work directly on litigation

related matters that involved

the School District.



Mr. Guzniczak was my contact person and worked

actively on all matters involving the District.



Subsequently, in 1983, I and other attorneys in the

firm worked very closely with Harry Guzniczak and

numerous Milwaukee area school superintendents

in the federal school desegregation litigation.



It was obvious in dealing with the man

that his work was more than a job.



He was dedicated to his duties and persisted in seeking

the right solutions to major community problems at a

time in life when others might be more interested in

pursuing their personal objectives or leisure time.



I was amazed when he took on the added task of being

a board member at Milwaukee Area Technical College

which ultimately resulted in his being elected

Chairman of the Board in the late 1980's.



I asked him why he would undertake something

like the MATC work at a time when his health,

superintendent duties and other commitments

put him way beyond the overload range.



His answer was basically,



"I think I'm the right person for the

job and that I can help where needed."



In 1989 and 1990, I represented Milwaukee Area

Technical College in several matters including a

litigation case where the Board members sand the

former District Director were the focal points.



It was high visibility case in Milwaukee and

Mr. Guzniczak was called upon to work day

and night to fulfill all of the duties he

has as a superintendent of schools and

Chairman of the Board of a large college.



On several occasions, he called me at home late

in the evening literally unable to talk because

of hyperventilation, probably occasioned by

overwork and his heart condition.



At that time I asked him and his wife to reorder

their priorities and take care of Harry's health.



Notwithstanding this suggestion, he pressed on

to ensure that the successorship at MATC would be

handled in such a way as to achieve a top-flight

President for the good of the college

and the community.



That mission was admirably accomplished before

he resigned from the MATC Board late last year.



What I have always seen in Harry Guzniczak is a

dedicated public servant who did an exceptional

professional job in whatever he undertook.



I also know that his transgression has hurt him

immeasurably, both physically and mentally.



With the utmost respect for the responsibilities

that you as a Judge must fulfill, I submit that

Harry Guzniczak should be given the opportunity

to perform some community work rather than any

incarceration for his admitted offense.



Respectfully,



Michael R. Wherry F-91-261

August 13, 1991               Marcia L. Stein F-91-261



Dear Mr. Hittman:



I am writing as the Executive Director of

Seeds of Health, Inc., a non-profit service

agency located in Milwaukee County.



The purpose of this letter is to introduce you to Seeds

of Health and to express our support for Dr. (SIC)

Harry Guzniczak to serve his community service

obligation with Seeds of Health.



In September 1988, the agency opened an alternative

school to provide secondary schooling to at-risk

students with a particular emphasis on serving

the pregnant students and school-age parents.



The Grand Alternative prepares 75 at-risk students for

a MPS high school diploma in a non-traditional setting.



The school provides academic training as well as an

array of support services to nurture these young

people who have returned to school.



We are willing to have Dr.(SIC) Harry Guzniczak

provides up to 20 hours per week of community

service in the capacity of teacher, tutorial,

supervisor, or whatever needs arise to fulfill

the mission of our school program.



In addition, I will be responsible for meeting with

Dr. (SIC) Harry Guzniczak on a weekly basis to

evaluate his obligation to Seeds of Health.



Sincerely,



Marcia L. Stein

Judge Michael Skwierawski



ATTENTION: John McNally



RE: Harry Guzniczak



Your honor,



I am writing this letter to plead for leniency in the

up-coming sentencing of my patient, Harry Guzniczak.



I write this letter in his support largely because

I feel that an incarceration is very apt to result

in aggravation and likely progression of his

coronary disease, which is already severe.



As you know by now, he underwent coronary bypass

surgery in March 1991 after multiple angioplasties

were performed and, ultimately, failed.



He is known to have severe coronary disease

involving most vessels and has already

suffered significant myocardial damage.



All of this renders him at significant risk for

sudden cardiac death, not to mention

heart failure, continuing angina, etc.



His current medications include Procainamide (used to

mitigate life- threatening dysrhythmias) and on this

medication he has been reasonably well controlled.



In addition, he is on medication to minimize anginal

complaints, though he tells me that in the past week

while under the stress of his on- going trial and

up-coming sentencing, he has been having

increasing episodes of chest pain.



Knowing him as well as I have one the past many

years, I do not believe that he is exaggerating

this complaint at this time.



As he stands currently, his exercise capacity is

actually quite good, having just completed a cardiac

rehab program, however I should think the emotional

stress of his trial and potentially of incarceration,

may well be more than he will be able to endure.



I think there is a very real possibility that

incarceration in this gentleman's case will

amount to a lethal sentence for him.



On behalf of Mr. Guzniczak, and certainly myself

also, I very much appreciate your consideration

of these thoughts.



If you have any questions, please don't hesitate

to contact me by letter of telephone.



Respectfully yours,



James A. Leibsohn, M. D. F-91-261

(Curiously, MOELLER WROTE EVERYTHING IN UPPER CASE)



DEAR JUDGE SKWIERAWSKI:



SUBJECT: HARRY GUZNICZAK



I AM WRITING THIS LETTER WITH MIXED EMOTIONS BECAUSE I

BOTH TAUGHT FOR MR. GUZNICZAK FOR 8 YEARS, AND AFTER I

LEFT FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL TO BUY THIS BUSINESS I WAS

THE VICTIM OF A THEFT BY MY OFFICE MANAGER.



THE MANAGER WAS CONVICTED OF STEALING $80,000., BUT A

COMPLETE AUDIT INDICATED THE AMOUNT WAS $147,300.



THIS OCCURRED IN 1986.



HOWEVER, THE REASON I AM WRITING IS TO TELL YOU WHAT

A FINE INFLUENCE MR. GUZNICZAK WAS IN MY LIFE.



WHAT HE DID IS INEXCUSABLE, AND HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED,

BUT HE ALSO WAS THE FINEST MEANING OF TRUE

PROFESSIONALISM IN WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE,

AND HE DID THIS THROUGH EXAMPLE.



I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT HE HAD MORE IMPACT OF (SIC)

TEACHING CAREER THAN ANY OTHER PERSON.



LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE: AFTER I LEFT TEACHING

AND BOUGHT THIS BUSINESS, I FELT IT WOULD BE A

GOOD IDEA TO TAKE A DALE CARNEGIE COURSE.



AFTER ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE MEETINGS I TOLD MY WIFE, I

DON'T HAVE TO GO TO THESE MEETINGS ANY LONGER - THESE

ARE THE SAME THINGS THAT I LEARNED WHILE TEACHING FOR

MR. GUZNICZAK.



I HAVE NOT SEEN, NOR TALKED TO HIM OR ANYONE IN

HIS FAMILY FOR MORE THAN EITH (SIC) YEARS, YET I

WANTED TO RELATED (SIC) THIS INFORMATION TO YOU.



I SEE THAT THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS REQUESTING A

LONG PRISON SENTENCE, BUT MY PERSONAL OPINION IS

THAT JUSTICE WOULD BE SERVED BETTER WITH A LONG

PROBATION, AND RESTITUTION.



SINCERELY YOURS,



RICHARD E. MOELLER

Judge Michael Skwierawski:



Dear Sir:



Re: Harry Guzniczak:



As I read the Sentinel of August 14, 1991 I observe

that you are going to have to sentence Harry Guzniczak

and I would like to give you my thoughts.



Even though I live in Franklin I do not

know or have never met the man.



I hope that you will be able to provide some creative

sentencing because I believe it would be absolutely

stupid to use a cell to house this man who is not

likely to every (SIC) impose bodily harm on anyone

while there are so many getting probation who have

done so or would likely do so.



Two thoughts come to my mind if

the law allows you to do so.



1. A sentence would be given but suspended and

probation given with the stipulation that

the offender must maintain his present

residence for 3 to 5 years.



2. In addition the offender would not be able

to leave the area for the same 3-5 years.

No vacations in Florida etc.



Finally require community service

for the same 3 - 5 years.



I do not excuse the crime but in view of the

shortage of jail space, and I think financial

restitution has been made, I think the

humiliation will be quite a load to bear.



cont:



Thank yo for reading this letter and I wish

you good luck in making a wise decision.

August 15, 1991                Carol K. Oeder F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski:



I am writing this letter to you on behalf of

Harry Guzniczak of Franklin, Wisconsin.



Harry was recently convicted of theft and is

scheduled for sentencing on August 20, 1991.



I was shocked and saddened beyond words

to learn of his recent situation.



I have been a long-time friend of the family,

had children that grew up together and also

worked with Harry professionally.



On a professional level I was a school

board member from 1983-1988.



During this time I served as board president

for two years and worked closely with Harry

on the desegregation law suit.



This period of time was extremely stressful

as a board member and even more so for a

board president and superintendent.



During this time Harry always remained very

professional, supportive and patient.



At the end of my term I had gained

enormous respect for Harry.



On a personal level, since I am a nurse, I continue to

be concerned with his long history of coronary disease

and the impact this will have on his health.



Knowing Harry as well as I do and having spoken with

him on several occasions since this disclosure, I

know he accepts full responsibility for this

unfortunate act (SIC) and is extremely remorseful.



I am asking at this time that you consider leniency

of this matter because of Harry's long record of

community service, deep remorse and the fact

that I feel this incident was an isolated

one (SIC) that will never be repeated.



Sincerely yours,



Sincerely

August 15, 1991              Scott A. Thinnes F-91-261



Dear Judge Skwierawski,



I am a property owner and resident of the City of

Franklin and am writing you in regard to the case

of the former Franklin School Superintendent

Harry E. Guzniczak.



I believe (SIC) this case is scheduled for

sentencing on Tuesday, August 20, 1991.



I have only been a resident of Franklin for four years

and I do not personally know Mr. Guzniczak.



However, I feel that I must voice my concern about

the fact that officials who betray the public trust

placed in them seem to never be held accountable

for their actions.



They appear to think their reputation or their years of

so called service to the community should exempt them

from the penalty that they deserve under the law.



Society places a very special trust in the people that

we choose to run our public school system, the

well being and education of our children.



We expect those officials and educators to set

an example that is uncompromised and to help us,

as parents, guide our children to a productive

and law abiding life.



Remorse for the crimes committed is fine and

restitution is unquestionable, but justice can

only be served by the passing of a sentence that

not only does justification to the breach of public

trust, but also tells of the standards that our society

requires of its public officials.



I urge you to, in the consideration of your sentence,

take into account the trust that the public puts in the

people we elect into public office and the effect that

the betrayal of that trust has on the integrity of our

representative form of government.



Sincerely,



Scott A. Thinnes

PAGE 596 MATC BOARD MINUTES FOR MONDAY 9 JULY 1990:



Ms. Elliott presented Mr. Guzniczak with a Resolution

of Appreciation during his term as Chairman and he also

received a gift. He thanked the Board members and the

members of the staff for the cooperation that he has

received. He also wished the new officers well. [1]



RESOLUTION OF APPRECIATION:



WHEREAS Mr. Harry E. Guzniczak has served as District

Board Chairman from 1986 to 1988 and was elected as

District Board Chairman on July 10, 1989; and



WHEREAS during Mr. Guzniczak's tenure in this office he

provided courageous leadership and steadfast commitment

to the college as exemplified by his role in the

president search process [2] ; and



WHEREAS Mr. Guzniczak's gift of time and talent to the

college is an affirmation of his resolve in seeking the

highest quality of education and ensuring student

access to those educational opportunities; and



WHEREAS Mr. Guzniczak continues to provide expertise,

insight, and a sense of balance to the Board in

pursuing its mission; therefore be it



RESOLVED, that the District Board of the Milwaukee Area

Technical College congratulate and commend Mr. Harry E.

Guzniczak for his loyalty, dedication, and service to

education and the citizens of the district. It was

moved by Ms. Elliott, seconded by Ms. Johnson, that the

Resolution be approved. Motion carried, the vote being

as follows: Ayes - Cashmore, Clark, Elliott, Ellis,

Johnson, Keller, Parris, Vasques. [3]



-------------------------------------------------------

COURTESY COMMENTS BY GERHARDT J. STEINKE:



When above transpired, I was completing a 5,200 mile

Washington-Maine cycling event and was unable to

be in attendance at the above board meeting.



Thus it's difficult to verify the below reaction

to Frances Elliott's gushing over Harry:



[1] In all the above CEREMONIAL GUSHING, no one

    mentions that Harry served longer than any

    other MATC Board member:1/12/81 - 10/15/90.



    By a strange coincidence(?), Guzniczak's

    resignation "for health reasons" came just

    after HIS 30 YEARS CRIME BECAME EXPOSED.



[2] Both Rus Slicker and Barbara Holmes were

    HIRED by Guzniczak's board. See Page 15.

    Rus claimed to be "resigned." RUS SLICKER

    IS STILL AT MATC-Milwaukee. $ $ $ $ $ $ $



    Although BARBARA WAS BUTCHERED IN THE MEDIA,

    little was reported on those that hired her

    and later bought her out for a fortune.



[3] WITH ENTHUSIASTIC ABANDON - "YES! YES! YES! YES!

    (I can only guess about he level of enthusiasm.)



The public SELF-SERVING SOLIPSISTIC SURREALISTIC PRAISE

OF HARRY subsided somewhat after Harry's 30 years of

Franklin and MATC crime were exposed. His pecuniary

FRIENDS (mostly lawyers) PLAYED DOWN HIS MATC CRIMES.



SECRET ACTIVITY OF LAWYER FRIENDS CONTINUED UNABATED.



Most (but not all) were at Mulcahy & Wherry - and its

progeny. There are so many of them. GODFREY AND KAHN,

DAVIS & KUELTHAU, Whyte Hirschboeck etc. . . . . . .



The number of lawyers milking the MATC golden cow

after Harry's demise continues to escalate WITH

MINIMAL PUBLIC SCRUTINY AND MAXIMUM COVER UP.

PAGE 161 MATC BOARD MINUTES FOR MONDAY 15 OCTOBER 1990:





Chairwoman Johnson communicated to the Board that

Mr. Harry Guzniczak has resigned form the MATC

Board effective today, October 15, 1990,

due to health problems. [1]



Ms. Nancy Parris, Board Secretary, will send

out a notice to the District Appointment Committee

within 30 days and there will be an announcement

within 60 days. A special election will be held

to appoint a new school superintendent to fill

unexpired term. [2]



Mr. Vasquez moved, Ms. Ellis seconded, and motion

carried to send Mr. Harry Guzniczak a memento

of appreciation for his years of service and

for his dedication to the MATC Board. [3]



Mr. Cashmore suggested than an appropriate

formal resolution [4] be prepared and

signed by the members of the Board.



Ms. Elliott indicated that she also

attended the Boards Association in

Wisconsin Dells and is on the

Program and Planning Committee. [5]



She said that on April 26 and 27 in Madison,

the Boards Association Meeting will have as

a guest speaker Mr. Bud Hodgkinson, who is

a demographer and also a futurist with a

strong message, and she suggested that

all Board members attend. [6]



Ms. Pam O'Halloran, a member of the audience,

asked if there were any plans to extend the

Local 587 contract. Dr. Holmes stated that

the Administration would be talking with

Local 587 very soon . . . next regular

Board meeting Monday, November 18, 1990. [7]



Respectfully submitted, NANCY PARRIS, Secretary.

COURTESY COMMENTS BY STEINKE:



[1] Harry did have a variety of SELF-INFLICTED HEALTH

    PROBLEMS. His major major problem, however, was

    that of having his life of crime exposed.



[2] MATC Board members are appointed by a Board

    Appointment Committee made up of 25 members.

    TWO (2) IS A QUORUM! MATC controls the show.



[3] Unfortunately typical of the inappropriate

    GUSHING OVER FELON HARRY.



[4] Former West Allis Mayor was also prone to

    UNTOWARD PRAISE OF HARRY.



[5] See Page 26 to see another Harry hireling

    GUSHING OVER FELON GUZNICZAK.



[6] YET ANOTHER "FEEL-GOOD" OPPORTUNITY for

    the board to get themselves stroked.



[7] Cashmore, uncritical of Harry, bashed

    and butchered Barbara Holmes.

7/10/91 OLSON: FELONY JUDGE SKWIERAWSKI. Case F-91-261.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=



As Franklin School District's only superintendent

of Schools, Harry Guzniczak has guided the District

from its first steps to national recognition

as an outstanding school system:



In 1989, Franklin High School was honored with an award

by the United States Department of Labor as one of a

handful of outstanding high schools in the country.



In addition, Mr. Guzniczak, individually, has won

recognition from his peers as AN OUTSTANDING

ADMINISTRATOR and as an active supporter

and policy maker in vocational,

technical and adult education.



DURING MY 15 YEARS AS SCHOOL DISTRICT LEGAL COUNSEL,

I have watched as Mr. Guzniczak worked to build

a strong teaching staff, emphasizing continuing

education, exchange of ideas within the system,

and support for new teachers from fellow teachers

and the Administration, so that the students

in the District would benefit from the

best that education could offer.



Mr. GUZNICZAK'S OVERSIGHT (SIC) of the District's

short-term and long-term educational goals and

aspirations HAS BEEN THE PIVOTAL FACTOR IN

THE GROWTH OF THE DISTRICT into one of the

state's finest K-12 school districts.



ALL OF THIS HAS REQUIRED MR. GUZNICZAK'S DEDICATION

and the expenditure of enormous amounts of his

time and energy in its accomplishment.



Indeed, Mr. Guzniczak's medical history is a testament

to the extent to which he has been willing to give

of himself in order to further the goals

of the Franklin School District.



Along with everyone connected with the

Franklin School District and with Harry Guzniczak,

I was STUNNED (SIC) BY THE REVELATIONS coming out

of the District Attorney's office which were

detailed in your Court.



However, I believe that one cannot ignore

the years of service which preceded

THIS (SIC) ABERRATION.



There is, here, also the consideration of the

complete (SIC) (*) restitution of funds

to the District by Mr. Guzniczak.



Your Honor, as you consider proper sentencing

in this matter, I would urge that you CONSIDER

THE WHOLE OF THIS MAN, his service and dedication

as well as the act that brings him before you.



I know of the remorse and anguish

suffered by Harry Guzniczak.



I hope that FURTHER SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

would receive strong consideration as

an alternative to incarceration.



I believe such an alternative could well

PROMOTE THE HEALING ALREADY TAKING PLACE

within the District, and it would appropriately

recognize the enormous contributions which have been

made to education in the Franklin School District by

Mr. Guzniczak. Please feel free to contact me should

you have any followup questions as to the matters

addressed in this letter.



Mark L. Olson



$ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $ = $



11 lawyers, Slicker, Vasques, Gill, and Mihlbauer with

five Guzniczaks wrote similar BUNCOMBE for felon Harry.

ZERO STUDENTS OR TEACHERS. NOT EVEN ONE. ZILCH. NADA.



He affected untold thousands of teachers and students.



HOW WONDERFUL WAS HARRY? "COMPLETE RESTITUTION"? Sure.

Translation: "Thank God For Statute of Limitations!"



Note the convoluted logic wherein several hundred

counts of theft become "a" mistake justifying supposed

"public service" which has turned out to be secret

service for Guzniczak's old MATC cronies.



Olson, formerly at defunct Mulcahy/Wherry with John

Maloney et al, remains a key beneficiary of Harry's

Franklin and MATC largess. Feel free to call Mark.
