NEW ROCHELLE, NY — For the first time since news broke of indictments in a federal grand jury investigation, the name of John Quinn has surfaced in the investigation.

Talk of the Sound obtained a copy of the Grand Jury Subpoena, dated December 18, 2015, under a Freedom of Information request filed with the City School District of New Rochelle. The subpoena was served by the United States Attorney Southern District of New York. Signed by United States Attorney Preet Bharara and Assistant United States Attorney Benjamin R. Allee, the subpoena demanded that the District turn over records including the personnel file of John Quinn and records relating to payments made to John Quinn, including salary, wage, or other payments.

The subpoena also seeks records pertaining to G.W. Plumbing, T&G Electric, Zonzini Masonry, Zonzini Pipeline Services, Globe Fence, Roxy Fence, Wager Construction, and “contracts with the vendors, proposals, purchase orders, change orders, invoices, and payments.”

In a cover letter, Bharara asks the District not to disclose the existence of the subpoena to any third party to “preserve the confidentiality of the investigation and because disclosure of the existence of this investigation might interfere with and impede the investigation.”

The subpoena orders the District to provide records.
