State Comptroller’s Office Uncovers Employee Theft

October 25, 2017

A former clerk to the Minerva town supervisor has apparently stolen tens of thousands of dollars.. A 24-page audit found a severe lack of oversight in a number of fiscal areas in the town of Minerva.


Jordan P. Green, the former clerk, was able to overpay herself and manipulate benefit deductions. Ms. Green resigned in 2015 when the financial discrepancies were discovered. She was sentenced to 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison after pleading guilty last month to felony grand larceny.

The audit uncovered a total of $30,410 that Ms. Green was not entitled to. She has been ordered to pay back $19,076. As a result of these findings, the Comptroller’s Office reviewed payroll receipts and records between 2010 and 2015. The results of this audit have been postponed until after the conclusion of the criminal case.

Many inaccuracies and incomplete records were found and it was noted that “the Town Board did not examine the supervisor’s tax collector’s records for the 2012 and 2013 fiscal years.”

Minerva Supervisor Steve McNally, who has been supervisor since 2014, requested the accounting review after these financial improprieties were uncovered. Green is currently serving her sentence at Lakeview Correction Facility and will be eligible for parole in January 2019.
