One of Our readers Who has Requested Anonymity has Provided Us with a Copy of an Exchange Ignited by Jerry Deluca’s Poor Choice of Words On One of Those Secret Club-Members-Only FaceBook-type Social Media Sites…And Jerry’s Backup, Cathy Deluca, Had to Come Up Real Quick with a Humble Apology.
Of course, we don’t have access to the RCS Friends and More* site’s contents, and we’d probably be banned if the administrators knew we were reading it, too, but we do have some people who are keeping an eye out for the community and who sometimes send us some tidbits of interest. We thought you’d like to hear what your neighbors are talking about…
As we predicted, the Coeymanazis and their ringleaders are taking some well-earned flack. The Delucas are finding out that the community is sick and tired of their nastiness and their constant bellyaching, and the community is starting to talk back!
It seems Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was not at all pleased with the re-election of John M. Vadney to be president of the RCS board of education, a real vote of confidence by the RCS community and the board itself, and was just as unhappy when Mike Robbins was elected to be vice-president. (It should be noted that a member of the teachers clique and Deluca pet, James Latter, a guy with a really unsavory history, was nominated to be president, LOST, and then was nominated to be vice-president, and LOST again! And you wonder why we baptized the Deluca gang “The Losers Club“?)
Deluca left the meeting fuming when his pet, Matt “the Mutt” Miller got the boot! So what does Dirty-Hands Jerry do? He tries to smear the newest member, Judy Sylvester! Well, no-one was going to put up with that!
Read the comments and then read Deluca’s apology! (Editor’s Note: We’ve changed the names of the commentors to prevent retaliation by the Coeymanazis.)
“Dirty Hands Jerry” DeLuca may not have had his usual Coeymanazi backup at the July 10th board of education meeting but that didn’t keep him from sowing the sour grapes through a local gossip page on the Internet. Old “Dirty-Hands Jerry” writes:
“I went to the Board meeting tonight in the hopes that The candidate who said she was an independent voice would use this opportunity to start to move RCS fowward. It was clear tonight that Mrs. Sylvester is totally alligned with the faction that continues to Bully and bring this district down. Fisrt she voted to relect Mr. Vadney as President and then voted to elect Mr. Robbins as VP. The coup de grace though came when she voted to oust Matt Miller from his post as director of energy conservation. The gang has it in for Matt and will do whatever it takes to punish him. Matt has saved the district a lot of money, but because they do not like that he stands up to their bullying they are trying to punish him. Our community is clearly a good community and good school district, we deserve real leadership. Do the right thing Judy.“
Judy Sylvester did the right thing, Jerry! Of course, it wasn’t anything you would have done…it was the right thing, and Ms Sylvester has the full support of the community, too! But we really have to hand it to you, Dirty-Hands, in that remarkably small space you managed to bad-mouth just about everyone on the citizens/residents side of the board; 3 out of 5! It was no surprise, of course, that you spared the teachers clique and your pet weasel, Matt “the Mutt” Miller. How do you manage? Well, you’ve had a lot of practice, haven’t you.
Well, according to another of our sources, “Dirty Hands Jerry” was at the board meeting earlier in the evening when voting for officers was taking place and he stormed out when he heard the results. Neither Dirty-Hands Jerry or his partner Cathy Long-Deluca were at regular meeting but their fly-on-the wall R.J. D’Esposito was sucking up everything. We’ll believe their sincerity and change of heart when their lackey whore journalist at the TU prints apologies to BoE!
Little Deluca pet R.J. D’Esposito appears to need a life! Or does he actually have one but spends it texting on the RCS Friends and More FaceBook site, that is, when he’s not heeling to Jerry Deluca or doing the almost-but-not-quite-famous RJ-staredown at the BoE meetings? Does he take off the dog collar when Jerry lets him out?
Whatever! This little muskrat has earned himself a real place among the girls on the gossip sites…not many of the local guys can make that claim to fame, RJ. Lucky you! Keep it up, muskrat… (Betcha like gladiator movies, too. Doncha?)
We get a real feel for the anti-Deluca sentiments and the growing support for the board of education from the community in some of the comments made by residents in response to Deluca’s usual whining and hate-mongering:
This kind of small-mindedness is maddening! Holding people accountable is now bullying?? What ‘gang’ are you referencing?? [redacted personal information] Who are the members?? Aren’t you some sort of detective?? Throwing around the words….gang?? So, because Judy voted along the same lines of some board members that you obviously don’t like, she is now a member of a GANG???? She no longer has an independent voice??? Oh my goodness, with thinking like that…what are you doing dealing with our community members and police force??? WOW…..
TA responds to a Deluca/Miller supporter, Melissa Ashby:
I didn’t see where Mr. DeLuca stated anything at all about his children. I did see where (see above!) he attempts to characterize Judy Sylvester as being “aligned with” and “a member of the gang” that is attempting to bully our district. All because she voted YES or NO and other board members voted the same YES or NO. Mr. Miller may be a stand up guy but that doesn’t mean the RCS district needs to pay someone $10,000 a year in addition to their salary to be the Energy Manager. The majority of the Board voted to end that. It’s about time some tough decisions are made in this district. We are one of a few of the only schools IN THE NATION to have relatively no cuts in these economic times.
Oh…and what is the “right thing” you are asking Judy to do, Mr. DeLuca? Vote how you would vote?? That really gives her an independent voice, doesn’t it?
TA and then responds to Melissa Ashby (a member of the Deluca camp?):
And yes, [Melissa], I do have a child. He’s grown now, a smart, independent young man, college grad and member of the United States Navy. I’m a very proud mom!
BRAVO! TA and congratulations on having parented a fine young American!
Another commentor, SP, then joins the conversation:
A[redacted], you’re so right! Not one thing was about the kids…..only about the board and Matt Miller….[Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]
SP continues: As for time even I don`t get on her mobile when I am out. This is the last thing I think of doing! LOL
ENOUGH, all of you. Enough is enough. I was not brought up in this school district and I do not know all of you as well as the rest of you obviously do, however I have to agree with the individual who stated that the RCS School District is the laughing stock of the capital district, and I might add that it may be the rest of the state. When I receive newspaper clippings from my home town some 150 miles away from here telling all of those people there that RCS didn’t receive extra grant money because we don’t have the right senators or congressman representing us then the problem is much greater than the minor squabbles that are going on here. You are all beginning to sound like and act, (from the stories I am hearing) like high school girls merely gossiping amongst themselves. Do we need change, I don’t know. What I do know is that if we have thugs on the school board who are trying to manipulate and bully the other members to vote the way they want, then shame on them, and shame on the other members who don’t have the backbone to stand up for themselves. If people have to go then get rid of them, if we need to bring in an independant investigator to look into this supposed voter fraud then do it. I’m sure that nobody on the board would have a problem with that, what with all of them being the upstanding honest citizens that they are supposed to be. Start there with your witch hunt, and see who voices the loudest opposition and you just might find out who the rotten apple really is.
I’m sorry but did I hear correctly, that there was more votes than signatures in the registration books? The $64,000 question, how many votes difference? One? Five? Two hundred? How many? Way bigger news than who failed to overthrow the current administration of the BOE. Now THAT warrants an investigation by the authorities, and I KNOW that the LOCAL authorities will recuse themselves from any possible criminal investigation of voter fraud….. RIG. As far as the re-election of officers goes, lets clarify the job duties and titles of the board of Education members. They are representatives that are elected by the residents of the said district, Sorry, that are preferably alive, are supposed to fiscally mindful of the tax dollars collected in the said district and see that those collected tax dollars are spent in a manner that is the most responsible for the Education of the children in the district. This does not mean that the board members are to be “bullied” by the administrators, teachers union, past and present teachers/residents, employees of the district or family members of ANY school district past or present employees.
Please stop with the wrapping of the shroud of “its for the children” why everyone should continuue to vote for cost gouging budgets when people are just trying to buy food “for the chidren“
I think it was 48 but I’m not definite on that. And yes, it would be nice if the Board was allowed to operate without a few certain members of our community creating chaos all the time. We have recently had news of our Town and Village Of… [Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]
SP voices his opinion of the Delucas:
The disgrace is you and your wife [referring to the Deluca pair] that want to control the school from the cheap seats. The taxpayers voted her [referring to Judy Sylvester] in, not you and your wife [Editor’s Note: OUCH!]………the school is in trouble, or we would not qualify for over 300,000 dollars for the middle school…….don`t you think you should get in behind the board and not try to add discord in the school district….Is this the way you act as a detective? If it is God help us!
Cathy DeLuca responds:
Everyone (even a police investigator) is free to express thier opinion and’exchange ideas on this page. It’s very sad that you seem to think we are having such a negative effect on the school district. Aside from expressing an opinion, I’m curious to know what you think we are doing to “control from the cheap seats”. I believe it is important to listen to constructive criticism as long as it’s done respectfully. I am NOT trying to provoke you in any way.
I agree, [name redacted]. It appears that Mr. DeLuca thinks that Judy doesn’t have an independent voice. Why? Because she voted Yes or No at a Board meeting whereby the likes of Mr. Vadney (gasp!), Mr. Robbins (oh dear!), etc voted the same Yes or No. Anyone who knows Judy knows that she is no shrinking violet. She didn’t run for the Board to join a team. She very definitely has her own thoughts and voice. Perhaps this should be YOUR wake-up call, Mr. DeLuca. Could it possibly be that it made sense to her to vote that way?? Apparently, according to you, that couldn’t be possible. RIDICULOUS!! What next!!??
Mrs. DeLuca that was not opinion it was a statement….by a policeman that his salary is payed for by tax payers…….
Cathy DeLuca responds to the outrage expressed by a number of subscribers to the FaceBook posting by her dear hubby, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and [falsely] humbly writes:
Hello Everyone, First of all I want to thank Ashley Anne Irwin, Karen Countryman and Elsie Proper Croteau for making me re-evaluate my own words and actions on this page. Ashley is correct, a long time friend of mine, Mr. Daniel Gonyea, is the creator of this page and it was intented to be a positive thing for our school and community. Dan gave me the privilage to be an administrator on the page and I have not held true to his original intention, however I WILL from here on out respect and honor his original intention. My apologies Dan. Jerry and I have discussed the current situation at great length and have agreed that neither of us will engage in negative banter any longer. Therefore, I am taking down Jerrys comment from last night. Ladies you are correct, thank you.
Unfortunately, I believe the use of social media has become a double edged sword. Although, we are able to more freely exchange ideas and opinions, we all have a tendency to choose our words with less caution than if we were speaking to someone face to face.
Yeah, Cathy, “social media has become a double-edged sword” and you and chubby chubby-chaser hubby just cut your own throats with it! Sure, it’s tough controlling yourself when you’ve always felt you could hide behind members-only groups and say what you liked…when, really, have you ever speak to anyone respectfully, much less face-to-face? It’s tough when no one wants to talk to you anymore or when they cross the street to avoid you. And worse still, when dear hubby can’t keep his fat mouth shut, you have to come up with a groveling apology! Nice work, Jerry! Your home life must be getting real cozy about now! Now where’d you put that pet rat?
* Clarification: The RCS Friends and More FaceBook group is actually an “open group.” Visitors can see the posts but you must request “membership” for any other privileges, like posting a comment. Cathy Deluca is an “administrator” and is probably screening members but we can’t say that for certain. By the way, does anyone happen know where Cathy Deluca is getting the police information she appears to be posting on the site?
