Cathy Deluca Has Chosen To Keep the Information on the RCS Bottle Blitz Confidential and has Announced it to Her Small Group of Followers on the RCS Friends and More FaceBook Site. But why hasn’t she shared it with the community at large…it was the community that responded, not her FaceBook friends!
If it’s such a success and the information was known and published on FaceBook on July 20th, we would like to ask Bottle Babe Cathy Deluca why such a big secret? Why didn’t she announce the good news at the July 24th board of education meeting, to the entire community? Why hasn’t it been published for the community to read in the local rag, the News Herald? Why has the information relating to a so-called community effort and to which the entire community made contributions been kept secret for so long and only announced to a very small group of Deluca’s followers? Is there something sinister here? Is this how Deluca plans to treat the community when it responds to her calls for support?
Very bad manners, Cathy…but it’s what we expected of you!
We have just received a message from one of our readers that the Bottle Babe, Cathy Deluca posted the following information on the RCS Friends and More, a FaceBook site:
Cathy DeLuca July 20th at 4:17 p.m.
I’m SO Excited to let everyone know that I just got our final figures from Mobil-In Bottle Return Center…….We collected 10,485 bottles and cans for a total of $524.25!!!!! Congratulations RCS!!!
You may be “SO excited” but you’re not letting “everyone know,” Cathy, just your select creepies on your FaceBook site. What about the rest of the residents and community who actually supported the drive? Not good enough to know?
Cathy DeLuca July 26 at 9:05 a.m.
UPDATE: After a successful first round of the RCS Bottle Blitz we are expanding the drop off times for August 14 & 15. Redeemable bottles and cans can be dropped off at the High school cafeteria (in cases or plastic bags) Tuesday August 14th from 7am to 7pm and on Wednesday August 15th from 7am to 3pm. Also, we have additional support for donation pick-ups. contact us at 756-2561 (DeLuca Public Affairs) Once again I thank EVERYONE for their support and am looking forward to surpassing our July record of 10,485!!!
Now you have a “July record”? Well, maybe DeLuca Public Affairs is keeping tabs on the past figures but didn’t you just start this thing? And who’s holding the cash? Are you going to present a check to the Board of Education at the next meeting to ensure that it’s applied properly? And don’t forget to include all paperwork from Mobil-In Bottle Return Center to verify your operations, Cathy.
We’d also recommend that the Board of Education request your application and explanation of what you’re doing, who’s involved, who’s responsible for cleaning up the cafeteria or whatever collection point you use on public property, who is footing the bill for utilities, insurance, while you’re on the public’s property, etc. If you’re going to do something it’s got to take the public’s interest and welfare into consideration. Getting all the glory and not paying your way just isn’t fair, is it Cathy? Or is this a DeLuca Public Affairs project…in which case, let DeLuca Public Affairs pay the expenses. (Has anyone thought to audit DeLuca Public Affairs, especially with it’s inside connections with the Coeymans police department?)
We do note that this information was posted on a FaceBook site that is available to only a small part of the RCS community. Despite our repeated requests, Deluca never once responded to our requests for that information and has preferred to keep it within the confines of a small group of her supporters.
We do not have access to the RCS Friends and More FaceBook site and cannot verify the information above, but we do not want the information to go unannounced.
