In November,the city's voters elected Lantigua, who was the first mayor originally from the Dominican Republic. More than one-third of the city's eligible voters are from the Dominican Republic, with a significant number of those from the Dominican city of Tenares.
Shortly after the election, Lantigua and the defendant met with the mayor of Tenares while they were vacationing in the Dominican Republic. Solicitation of the donation. After his return from the Dominican Republic, the defendant commenced work in the new administration. He directed the everyday operations of the city, acted as its "finance director," and oversaw the city's contracts, including its contract with Allied, all in close connection with the mayor.
Vendors, including Walczak, knew that the "mayor's office ha[d] a lot of clout" and "a lot of say" in the renewal and awarding of contracts and, for that reason, they knew that it was in their interest to be responsive to the mayor's office.

In December,Frank McCann, the head of the city's department of public works, telephoned Walczak to set up a meeting with Walczak and the defendant. At that point, Walczak had known McCann for about eleven years and had worked with him as the city's contact person on its trash contracts.
During the call, McCann informed Walczak that, at the meeting, the defendant was going to ask that Allied donate one or two trash trucks. The meeting took place later that month at the defendant's insurance office. From behind his desk, with McCann and Walczak seated in front of him, the defendant immediately launched into a hostile attack about the new trash contract. He stated that both he and the mayor were not happy with the contract, and that he "could not believe" that the previous administration had signed such a "way overpriced" contract.
Continuing in a confrontational tone, the defendant emphasized that the cost of the contract had been significantly increased from the previous one, but provided fewer services, and that he "didn't believe it would work in the city of Lawrence. The defendant told Walczak that "[he] and the mayor would be very happy" and "it would go a long way if [Allied] could donate. Walczak never before had been asked for such a donation. Feeling threatened, he believed that if he could not produce a trash truck, the mayor and the defendant would void the contract.
Likewise, he thought that if he went to the police about the defendant's threat, the contract would be voided. Thinking of his employees, the value of the relatively new contract, the precarious financial position of the city, [Note 4] and the significant investment Allied had already made, Walczak decided to "see if there was.
McCann also noted that "[t]here was no please in [the donation request]," and the defendant framed it in such a way as to let Walczak figure out the meaning of the request rather than stating it directly. Walczak then sought approval for the donation from his superiors in an electronic mail message dated December 16, Walczak did not disclose that the defendant had threatened him for a trash truck donation, but rather cast his request solely as one to secure the good will of the new administration.
In doing so, he thought that he "could take care of it, get it done and over with by. Over the course of the next several weeks, Allied prepared the truck for donation at its own expense, including giving the truck a new paint job and new tires at the mayor's request.
Thereafter, Lantigua, representatives of Allied, and the mayor of Tenares all posed for a photograph in front of a truck similar to the one being donated. Lantigua also supported Allied when issues arose in the city council regarding trash collection. Sufficiency of the evidence of bribery.

See United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of Cal. In other words, the statute is violated when an official solicits a bribe, knowing that it will be given for the purpose of inducing him to violate his official duty. Whether, upon receipt of the bribe, the defendant actually is influenced in the performance of his official duties is not required to prove criminality. United States, U.
In determining whether the defendant agreed to be influenced in the quid pro quo exchange, "[t]he jury may consider Page a broad range of pertinent evidence, including the nature of the transaction. United States, S. Here, the evidence permitted the jury to infer the defendant's corrupt intent.
At the meeting with Walczak and McCann, the defendant made abundantly clear that the purpose of the donation was to keep the trash contract intact. Even though the defendant did not spell out the quid pro quo directly, his approach was not subtle. By both Walczak's and McCann's accounts, the defendant made clear, through his threatening and hostile manner, the repercussions of failing to provide the requested donation.
From this evidence, the jury could infer that the defendant solicited the trash truck in exchange for not voiding the contract -- an unlawful quid pro quo. Thus, the bribe must be in exchange for influence only within the official realm at the defendant's disposal.
The decision whether to terminate a large municipal contract, such as the trash contract, is indisputably an official act. As an intermediate official, the defendant did not hold the authority, himself, to terminate the contract.
Nevertheless, the Commonwealth presented sufficient evidence that the contract was within the defendant's official responsibility. The defendant testified that his duties included working with vendors and advising the mayor on large contracts, such as the trash contract. Thus, at the very least, he had intermediate operating authority with respect to the contract, exercisable with another the mayorto direct agency action.
Put another way, the defendant had the requisite authority Page to be able to make good on his agreement to influence the mayor's treatment of the trash contract. On appeal, the defendant nevertheless argues that the Commonwealth did not meet its burden because it presented no evidence that the contract, which was binding and enforceable, could be terminated.

Hospital staff and watchdog organizations have been raising questions about the high cost and poor quality of the expansion works.
