     During his interview pictured above Mayor Jose 'Joey' Torres issued his denial stating, "At no time no city employee on taxpayer dollar nor... on overtime... that was your question... done any work at my home or at any other place."

Harry Melber is the Director of Operations at the investigation company which is licensed in the state of New Jersey. This case was worked primarily by him and his son, Nicholas Melber, who has since formed his own NJ Private Investigators company, Premier Enterprise Services, licensed in the state of New Jersey, specializing in surveillance. AHM Investigations video taped Paterson Public Works employees working on personal construction jobs under the direct supervision of Mayor Torres, while the employees were being paid - sometimes on overtime - on the City of Paterson payroll. Mr. Melber's company followed Mayor Jose Joey Torres for over a year and created a three volume record of the Mayor's use of public employees who were being paid by the City of Paterson while performing work at the Mayor's home and a construction site connected to the Mayor.  Mr. Melber has appeared twice on the NBC nightly news with Mr. Dienst. When asked about the specific contents of the evidence he gathered, Melber said, "There is much, much, more to come...".
