KBR’s Tom Bruni & Joe Tedesco? What A Team

UPDATED!!! SEE BELOW!! Can it be?? Has KBR hired the electrical code expertise of Joe Tedesco? The Joe Tedesco?? “Joe Almighty?” KBR must think they are in real hot water because according to Joe, he didn’t come cheap.

Joe Tedesco has been one of those names in the electrical industry that has been around since I was an apprentice ….DON’T GO THERE!! Anyways, I had always been in awe of “Joe Tedesco the God of Electrical Code”. When he contacted me a while back I was just all starstruck. The mighty Joe Tedesco had honored “little ole me” by gracing my blog with his mere presence. By commenting on my posts. The comments are still there! You know how it is …when you shake hands with someone really important you think “I will NEVER wash my hand!!”  Well, I thought…”I will never delete those comments!”

He told me he wanted to work in Iraq. He said he was doing a lot of Corp of Engineer training and wanted “hands on” experience. He asked about working for KBR. Naturally, I went right into my anti-KBR speal…KBR Bad!!! KBR Bad!!! I gave him DETAILS about how bad KBR was to work for. We were talking on a daily basis. He even called from a class in Virginia and put me on speakerphone to talk to his Corp of Engineer students who were deploying to Iraq.   He even sent me pics…

Then I got an email about Task Force Safe and how they were hiring master electricians to be inspectors.  They would be inspecting all of the DoD buildings. Most of which are maintained by KBR. I emailed Joe and said..”Send your resume here…NOW!!” He sent his resume to Stanley Consultants. He called me a day or so later and said he had been hired, $300,000 plus a year. We started going over all the stuff he was going to need and the stuff he wouldn’t need. Chit chatting…blah blah blah.

Then he started asking me about “living” at Camp Victory. Hmmm. I knew that working for Stanley (SBH), he would probably be moving around a lot. I thought, well…maybe SBH was going to use him in another capacity, so I answered his questions.

When I hadn’t heard from him in a couple of days, I decided to give him a call. That’s when he dropped the bombshell! “I’m going to work for KBR”. “Oh My Freakin’ God” just stab me in the freakin’ heart. I couldn’t freakin’ believe it. I said “You’ve got to be shittin’ me!” I was dumb founded. It’s like when Aniken Skywalker crossed over to the dark side and became Darth Vader and Tom Bruni was the Evil Emperer. I kind of felt like this was some kind of KBR intervention reality show and I was looking around for the cameras!!

He said…and I quote “KBR offered me DOUBLE what Stanley offered!” OK-Let’s do the math. Stanley offered $300,00 plus. So that means…KBR offered $600,000 plus? Plus he said he got his own room and own office next to Tom Bruni.

So….instead of working for SBH and performing an admirable service for our soldiers and civilians. Joe Tedesco chose to work for KBR. Chose to defend KBR. Chose to protect KBR. I’ll pass that on to Cheryl Harris, the mother of Staff SGT Ryan Maseth or Larrainne McGee the mother of Staff SGT Christopher Everett.

Once I denounced him publicly, he started harassing me by calling my house. He told my husband…in  a nutshell…he needed to get control of me. That I needed to “back off”. My husband just started laughing his ass off. He has called many other people in the middle of the night to tell them to “back off”.

So, I think Joe Tedesco is a perfect fit for KBR. I have one question for Tom Bruni. If Joe calls and harasses someone while under the employ of KBR/OAS… does that make KBR/OAS responsible?? Just curious.

I’m just thoroughly disturbed that my childhood electrical hero is so superficial and ______(you fill in the blank). And if you don’t believe me…check out these threads.. and these are just the ones that haven’t been closed.

UPDATE: 10-15-08 JOE TEDESCO HAS HAD HIS MEMBERSHIP IN INTERNACHI REVOKED! I can only assume it is for the vile, vulgar, disgusting, childish participation on the Forum. And the alleged stalking and harrassing of other InterNACHI members that are planning on filing suit. Every day he shows just how well he will fit in with KBR executives.

Also, KBR electricians. Joe claims he was trying to track down my KBR employee commentors via KBR HR. For what… I can only imagine. So…take a good look at the photo and be careful.

OK-now you decide… I am now in need of a good electrical therapist. Feel free to refer me.

Personal message to Joe Tedesco-Don’t bother commenting your nasty vile hateful vengeful crap, that’s my job! If it’s not an apology…I will delete it. My blog…my rules. As far as the photo goes…it’s on the freakin’ internet!

UPDATE-I TAKE IT BACK. HIRING JOE TEDESCO IS THE BEST THING KBR CAN DO FOR ANYONE THAT IS FIGHTING THEM, SUING THEM OR OTHERWISE IN ANY KIND OF ELECTRICAL DISPUTE WITH THEM. MUST FORWARD THIS LINK. WHAT A JOKE. CLICK HERE TO READ JOE’S LATEST AND GREATEST INANE BABBLE.

    Rather interesting that Jim Bushart longtime Nachi mouth piece and ner do well of the ESOP committee has found it necessary to let his membership expire with Nachi and formerly sign on as an ASHI member. Miracles never cease and now Nachi has lost yet two more rubes. Way to go Nachi you sure know how to get rid of members!

  2. Comment by well-informed:

    Have you considered possibly that he chooses to leave NACHI because of other reasons or do you just choose to blame his leaving on the Mr.Tedesco issue.

    Hardly.

    People come and go all the time with associations. It is his choice. He left the ESOP I believe some time ago.

  3. Comment by Knock Nachi:

    What other reason could possible exist for JB to leave, other than the fact he finally caught on that Nachi is nothing but a vendor mall and a trade association?

    JB maybe stupid and a mouth piece but he obviously knows a ruse when he see ones. The irony is he has become an ASHI member an association that he would knock daily! There goes ASHI as being an ethical alternative!But I notice he never defended ASHI when Nick Gromicko would refer to ASHI as SCUMBAGS!

  4. Comment by Knock Nachi:

    This is what Nachi has become. The public would be well advised to reconsider using Nachi for any services. http://realtytimes.com/rtpages/20050…reindicted.htm http/www.nachi.org/forum/f13/part-top-secret-focus-group-now-new-idea-help-inspectors-make-more-34626 Nick Gromicko said Peter is one of my best friends. He is a good man, did nothing wrong, plea bargained because he had little kids. There were few rules regulating internet companies back then. The stock never went down. No one lost a penny. His partner decided to fight in court for years instead and his conviction was recently overturned. Anyway, test out the hot new idea. It is going to be really good.

    and there is more from none other than one of the ESOP members…

    Frank M. Carrio, CMI

    Nick, Did you “vett” this program / person? Peter And The Wolff: Feds Indict Former Homestore Honchos by Blanche Evans If the wheels of justice appeared to move slowly in the federal indictments of former Homestore executives, CEO Stuart Wolff and VP of business development Peter Tafeen, it’s obvious from related news from Time Warner just a few days ago, that justice was simply waiting for the right grease. Three days after Time Warner finalized the terms of agreement with the SEC, including a $300 million settlement payable to the US government, Wolff and Tafeen were indicted.

    Nacho’s a dip anyone?

    And your point is??????

  7. Comment by well-informed:

    Sounds to me like you are simply upset because you either got kicked out of NACHI or you could not meet the requirements to be a member of NACHI.

    Which is it?

  8. Comment by Knock Nachi:

    Meet the requirements of Nachi? What requirements? An online test that is the easiest in the business?

    And which association did you join? Its obvious the association with the least requirements, which is Nachi. Thank you for proving my point!

    Nachi the vendor mall of inspection associations, and what can only be termed as a money laundering operation with a membership that is very gullible! Lemmings to the sea!

    De “Nile” is not a river in Egypt!

    Seems to me your shaking pom-poms for the wrong guy. Mr. Tedesco laid his own bed with NACHI. Like NACHI or not you wont change it or even have an effect on it.

  10. Comment by Knock Nachi:

    Joe who? ;) :)

    Who really cares about Joe or Nachi. NO ONE!

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    YOU SAID THAT RIGHT!!! NO ONE!!!

  11. Comment by well-informed:

    Then let it gooooooooo ! This was a thread about Mr.Tedesco and you turned it into a NACHI bashing event.

    So Ms Sparky- Any news on Joe in Iraq?

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    All I heard is…the people that count aren’t impressed.

  12. Comment by Knock Nachi:

    Hey Well Informed; who cares what you think? One thing we know about Nachi is it has fanatical members just like you!

  13. Comment by well informed:

    I guess you care since you have no clue and can only bash NACHI. Again I say let it gooooooo!

    Why else pick a name like Knock Nachi, very childish indeed. If you dont like NACHI then dont join and let people make their own choice.

  14. Comment by knock knock:

    Hey Ms. Sparky, I love people like you. You set up a blog to blab about your very open dislike for Joe with abandon, then criticize me.

    Looks like you have a juvenile streak in you too!

    You wear the coat of hypocrisy very well.

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    Criticize you? What in the hell are you talking about. Be more specific. I don’t even know who you are.

    You are Ms Sparky, are you not? Here is a clue from your post above.

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    Yes I am Ms Sparky. You and Well Informed have been going at it for quite a while. I just let you two have at it. Why am I all of a sudden “childish” or whatever it was you called me. Spit it out….don’t beat around the bush.

  16. Comment by knock knock:

    I never called you childish, it was you who termed me as childish. Please keep the facts straight I only deal in facts.

    Ms Sparky’s Response: Well you are confused. That was not my response. That was all “Well Informed”. Anytime I respond to a comment it starts out like this:
    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    This is how I clearly separate my response from my readers comments. So…those are the facts. Feel free to apologize anytime.

  17. Comment by knock knock:

    Okay, I apologize. Always willing to admit a mistake, even I am not fool proof, unfortunately.

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    Apology Accepted

  18. Comment by Ratbasterd:

    You people sure can whine.

  19. Comment by Flash:

    Joe’s got to make a living somehow, so does Mike Holt. So do I.

    I haven’t got much use for the NEC; I call it the National Exception Catalog. The whole thing is an over-edited marketing product for whomever joins the club and concocts a cheaper, lamer piece of plastic, tin, or pot-metal.

    Look at how much the code has grown in the last 5 cycles. Are buildings wired better today? (In the US) And since it keeps growing, why has the workmanship standard section dwindled to just a remark, and now is eliminated altogether? For some reason, I have to special order it.

    Right now somebody’s got plans for inflatable panelboards and enclosures that’ll come from the same child-labor farm in China as the party favors sold at the dollar-store. Don’t take your eye off Aluminum either.

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    My issue was with Joe only. He bold face lied to me!

    Old Ed said, on October 5th, 2008 at 4:10 am speaks truth about Kandahar!
    I met a few good folks from time to time. Overall KBR needed bodies to complete the task order… Floating slabs with no footings, Concrete footings with no#3 rebar, Paki plywood, no ceiling or floor joist hangers, no straps, concrete was 2000 psi. Oversized aggregate and unlicensed engineers = (E.I.T) who never worked in building construction and performing design work. This was common place…Most tradesman made it up as they went along with the program because of the lack of materials others gave-up caring because of this fact and most didn’t know jack and said they didn’t need a set of print to build anything no even an approved floor plan approved by the Military Base Engineer.

    I’m new here.. just wanted to say hi!

  22. Comment by Concerned Taxpayer:

    Any word on where Tedesco is located?

    When are the next Hearings in Congress

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    If he is still in Iraq, is was at Camp Victory. And the next hearings are not soon enough!!

  23. Comment by Marc Shunk:

    I just think it’s funny that someone would post comments in a pseudo name that’s an awful lot like my name. That’s hilarious.

    That is all. Carry on…

  24. Comment by bigbadwolf:

    Joe Tedesco showed up at Balad (anaconda) right before I de-mobed (20Aug09). My friend is “escorting” the $600,000 man around and trying to figure out how to get the hardstands validated. When will KBR figure out that they just need to rewire these buildings? They’ve spent more time and money on “consultant” when it’s completely obvious what needs to be done. So glad I de-mobed

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    Escorting?? Hmmm. Joe’s a legend in his own mind!! I thought that Joint Base Balad (JBB) was transitioning from LOGCAP to AFCAP and that KBR didn’t have the AFCAP contracts.

  25. Comment by bigbadwolf:

    JBB is currently transitioning from LOGCAP to AFCAP but O&M electrical doesn’t transition until February.

    Ms Sparky’s Response:
    JBB (Joint Base Balad) for my readers not familiar with the acronyms. Thanks! for the update.

  26. Comment by kbr_seii_employee:

    Does JT really make that kind of money? $600,000? That is a lot of moola for someone who doesn’t seem to know what is going on around him. Is that true, Ms. Sparky? He told my buddy at Anaconda that he is quiting when his year is up next month.

    And I also heard the transition to AFCAP is screwed up and is getting behind schedule because the new contractor doesn’t have his employees on the ground for the first AFCAP contract. He hasn’t even hired KBR workers yet. They are breaking the base up into several contractors for AFCAP, which is stupid. They handed one of the seveal DFACs over and a hundred diners got sick.

  27. Comment by Concerned:

    Well it is true. JT is back from IRAQ and up to his old self again. Guess they never learn.

  28. Comment by Joe Tedesco:

    Comments from behind the keyboard! I am still having fun. I am retired! It’s time to take it easy and smell the roses.
