What Do NYSUT, Matt Miller, C. Miller, H. Jones Have in Common?

12 Dec

Literally Hundreds of Millions of Your School Tax Dollars Are Going to Pay the New York State United Teachers Union Reps in Our Schools Each Year.

Question: Why Should We Need Fundraisers?

So My Question Is This: Why Should You and Your Neighbors Have To Do Fundraisers to Send Our Students On Educational Field Trips? Why Not Just Demand that the Teachers Union Pay Their Own Reps?

This is the situation in the 697 school districts throughout New York state and it shouldn’t be that way. All of you parents and tax-payers should ask Matt Miller why he’s being paid to do union work when he’s supposed to be a teacher! Ask Matt Miller the next time you see him why he feels justified taking money you intended to be spent on education and using it to do work to promote the teachers union, New York State United Teachers.

You might also want to ask the NYSUT representative in the RCS schools, Mr Matt Miller, why, if he’s getting more than half his salary paid by you and he’s doing teachers union work for it, WHY!?! you have to do fundraisers to send your children on school field trips?

Oh! And by the way, before you start slamming the present RCS board of education just be advised that all of this crap started when Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Cathy Deluca were on the RCS board of education, probably when Dirty Hands Jerry was president, and throughout that time Matt “the Mutt” Miller was the teachers union rep, and got himself the plum job of energy manager, too, while trying to position his wife to steal a principal’s job and abusing Hakim Jones. Yeah! They were pretty busy then, too.

If you’re a plumber or an electrician or a carpenter, do taxpayers pay your union representatives? Do you think the employees at now bankrupt Hostess had taxpayers paying their union reps? Can you think of one single reason why you should be paying for NYSUT’s union rep in our district or any other school district? If so, please share it with us.

 Recycle A Teacher / Union Rep

Recycle A Teacher / Union Rep

Just think, if Matt Miller is making at least $70K a year (Actually, in 2012, Matthew “Matt the Mutt” J. Miller made $88,164.00, and then he was paid at least another $10,000 as energy manager! And Miller’s wife, also a teacher, is making more than $60K!) in teachers salary (not counting his many other benefits) and at least half of that were reimbursed by NYSUT to the RCS school district, you’d have an additional $35K for field trips and the little educational extras. And that’s a conservative figure!

Coaches, Teachers Using High-Energy Consuming Appliances! Why?

Vampire-energy-power-wasteWe’ve also received an unconfirmed report that coaches and teachers at RCS high school are using unauthorized coffeemakers and hotplates, that windows are being blocked, etc. Are they all stupid? Or are they making a statement in protest to their darling Matt Miller being canned as energy manager? Maybe somebody should be making inspections and asking some questions why those morons are being so irresponsible? Or are they saying that they’re too stupid to know they’re wasting energy, wasting your tax dollars, and that they actually need some dorkus to babysit them? Ask some questions, people!

Bus Garage Lunatic Asylum! What is Going On There?

stopWe’ve reported several times on the lunacy going on at the RCS school district bus garage. Our reports ranged from busdrivers refusing to let students on the bus to be transported home. Students being left behind and having to be picked up by parents. A student actually walking home on 9W. A broken down bus on the NYS Thruway and a busdriver, rather than getting the minor students to safety, has them push the bus!

Now we are hearing about students looking for their usual bus and finding that the bus numbers are changing, confusing the hell out of the kids! And mechanics driving buses? Are they certified to do that? Are there students on board?

And what’s the smoke screen being sent up by the manager and her lackies?

The Feature Story

What Do NYSUT, Matt Miller, C. Miller, H. Jones Have in Common?

Well, it certainly seems that there was some racism going on in the RCS school district that involved the NYSUT teachers union representative, Matt Miller, Miller’s wife Karen Miller, who now teaches in the Catskill school district, former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, and the current principal at Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, Hakim Jones.

We are waiting for confirmation of the facts but it’s safe to share that what we now know is pretty gruesome and indicates that there was ugly racism at work on Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s and wifey Cathy Deluca’s watch, and collaborated in by teacher and union rep, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, that indicates that the Delucas (as sitting board of education members at the time), Matt Miller (who was the NYSUT rep at the time), and Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, along with Elisabeth “Betsy” Smith, former principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school and later RCS CSD superintendent, had hatched a plan to sideline Hakim Jones, principal of Pieter B. elementary, and install Karen Miller as principal!

According to unconfirmed reports, Matt Miller pushed, with the Delucas’ and Smith’s support, to sideline Jones, an African-American, and to put Karen Miller, Matt Miller’s wife, in the principal’s office. In the meantime, Karen Miller was installed as interim principal, while they shoved every humiliating job available down Jones’ throat, probably hoping he’d throw in the towel and disappear. Well, Jones had enough and filed a grievance, and like all bullies, the Deluca’s, the Millers, and Smith backed down. Hakim Jones resumed his position as principal of Pieter B. Coeymans elementary school, a post he continues to hold today.

It looks like the Miller-Deluca connection goes way back and has some very seedy history.  So, it’s no wonder that Miller, Deluca, the teachers on the RCS board of education, and NYSUT are in each others’ pockets.

Anything to say, Mr Miller? NYSUT?

Anything to say, Mr Miller? NYSUT?

But you’d like to ask where NYSUT was when the voting scandal was in the making, or even more importantly, where was NYSUT when Matt “the Mutt” Miller was inciting students to bully other students during the 2012-13 school budget voting scandals. In fact, where were the teachers when the parents were in an uproar about the abuse their children were experiencing at RCS schools. Answer: Doing what they do best; feathering their own beds and ambushing anyone who posed a threat to their scheming!

Matt Miller has a history, apparently, of taking very good care of Matt Miller and those close to him; this doesn’t bode well for NYSUT‘s overall image, either. But like any other union, NYSUT takes care of itself, and Matt Miller is a company man and intent on taking care of himself, too. But our burning question is this: was NYSUT condoning Miller’s self-serving abuse of a fellow teacher and union member? Wasn’t Miller, as the teachers union representative,  supposed to be ensuring the welfare of Hakim Jones and promoting his career, rather than selfishly ensuring the advancement of his wife’s career over against that of a hard-working, dedicated African-American? This tells us a lot about Matt Miller and the precious teachers union, NYSUT as well as their attitudes regarding minorities, justice, fairness, and equal opportunity.

And you’d better give some serious thought to the kind of people that are teaching your children values, morals, ethics. You can’t teach what you don’t have or know, right? So why are people like the Millers still being exposed to developing minds and characters? What do you think they’re teaching them?

Bravo! Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School Principal, Hakim Jones, for having the courage to do what’s right and fight back!

Where was the Times Useless when all of this newsworthy drama was playing out? I guess they were out to lunch at the time, or more likely libeling some poor bastard like Rodney K.

Again, the exact history of this case has not yet been confirmed but our sources are reliable. Sure, we may be running the risk of Times Union pseudo-journalism by publishing this before absolute confirmation, but Hey! grant us this one. If you have better facts, share them and we’ll be happy to publish!

Gotcha, Mattie! You've been a naughty dorkus!! The Editor

    Did they mismanage the paper needed? It’s “very disturbing when parents were donating reams of paper to our elementary teachers” However do the teachers misuse their paper supplies, too? I lost count how many times over the years I would get from my kids notices to “Vote Yes! and the reasons why I should vote YES! And over the years I would send in PostIt notes, 6 pads and never see one slip note back! Teachers are just as much to blame for waste, too! So far as Mr. Jones is concerned: If we all knew what he was going through, that is, the bull crap would have stopped much sooner; the public would have stopped it! Real fast!! I don’t want a racist or bigot near my children teaching hate nor would the rest of the residents. I don’t know Mr Miller well enough to think bad or good about him and as I stated before. All I care about is that if he’s a teacher then teach . More than $200 hundred million dollars buy a lot of food for seniors who can’t afford their school taxes; let’s get them real food instead of cat food. I voted Yes! last time, then I learn we spend $21,000 per student compared with Bethlehem at around $17 thousand a few moths later!!! Please!!! Teach!!!! Instead of 2-year old games by so-called educated adults, while my property values keep dropping, and graduation rates hover in the 70%. I do not want my donated reams of paper misused for vote “Yes” signs on the walls of the school as in last year. I voted Yes! last time! I’m not voting Yes this time. I’m signing a letter about my concerns about the 200 million and paying union reps salaries for the teachers unions. It would be nice if we didn’t have concerts on the voting day /night it makes it harder to park and vote. As for Mr “K” I didn’t vote for him last time but I will next time. As for MrR Vadney 25 people are waiting to testify who where there that night next to or very near to Mr Vadney and heard nothing come out of his mouth about weight!!!!! So The Times Union will look very stupid AGAIN! as will others………

      WOW! You must feel 10 pounds lighter after getting all that off your chest, dude! But I feel you are expressing so much of what so many of our friends and neighbors are trying to say but don’t know how to get the word out.

      You’ve been around this area for a while and you know a lot of people. You know what the issues are and you’ve got the courage to step up to microphone and say what’s on your mind. That’s a great service to the community and a great model for others to follow.

      Well, your comment doesn’t pull any punches, that’s for sure and it seems very honest, indeed.

      Thank you!

    I can fill in a little of the timeline.

    * The energy job was created after the DeLucas had already left the BoE.

    * The union rep “job” is ultimately paid by the customers of the employer. The unfortunate thing here is that the customers of the employer are us, the public. In Hostess’ case, for example, the company would have paid that slice and would have charged it as one of the many overhead costs embedded into the cost of the end products. Sucks, if you ask me. I see no reason why unions shouldn’t cover that cost in all industries… isn’t that what union dues are for?

    * Seeing kids fundraise for things the district should be footing the bill for is really disheartening. I also found it very disturbing when parents were donating reams of paper to our elementary teachers because the district has misbudgeted their paper supplies.

    * Who knows if the use of the appliances is retaliatory, but some of our employees act like teenagers in that as soon as the parent is gone they’ll start to push the envelope. The watcher doesn’t have to be Miller; the fact is right now there is no watcher at all.

    * The mechanics are certified drivers. Sub drivers are short in our area; frequently the mechanics which are certified drivers have to pick up the slack. In this case the more important question is this – – if we decide we need 4 mechanics, and they keep getting pulled out for driving, who is doing the needed maintenance?

    * Mr. Jones was not hired by RCS until after the Delucas had left the BoE.

    * By all means Mr. Jones should defend his rights if he’s been wronged.

      Thanks very much, Simon, again, for your illuminating comment.

      As I mentioned, we are waiting for the RCS CSD to get off their asses and respond to our demands for disclosure under the FOIL laws, so that we have the official information to publish once our collaborator(s) receive the district’s disclosure. Until then, we have to consider all inputs to be “unconfirmed.”

      Admittedly, our information may have some holes in it but we will correct the defects as soon as the powers at large respond. Ball’s in their court now.

        I don’t know far back the archives go, but you should be able to confirm the timelines through the public board meeting minutes.

        December 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

        Thanks, again, Simon. Let’s see what the district comes up with in response to the FOIL demands. It’s very time consuming and onerous to go through a decade of BoE minutes 😉 Unless you’d be willing to do that ;0

    I am tired of these people throwing stones at everyone else…Is there anything people can do to bring charges against people like them? (Matt Miller and the rest of his gang)


    • RCS Confidential

      December 12, 2012 at 8:26 pm

      Yes, Peter, there are various recourses at different levels and in different offices that we can look at. In fact, I am going to publish form letters for readers to use to file complaints and to contact elected and appointed officials with complaints. There are also opportunities to file “anonymous” complaints with some agencies but I don’t feel they are as effective as a signed paper letter (I don’t recommend e-mailing legislators etc.). Stay tuned and I’ll get the letters drafted and all you’ll have to do is fill in a couple of blanks and sign the letter, then send it out.

      We’ll also get a petition going and circulating with some community leaders to get the ball rolling on impeaching some of our local officials. Mayor Bruno is already so senile you’d think he has Alzheimers, and will probably soon drop dead but whatever happens he can’t continue as mayor any longer. We just have to make sure he doesn’t appoint an heir to be mayor and continue the stupidity that has been the rule for several decades in this district.

      We also need to get a referendum petition going to get rid of the Coeymans police department. That’s about a million a year we can save; even if it costs us $500K to have the sheriff’s department come in, we’re still getting better service by profesisonals and saving a half a $$million$$ a year! It’s a win-win situation.

      Stick with us and things will soon start to change. Support our RCS board of education members who are residents and business persons; they need your support agains the members who are obliged to the teachers and teachers union. It’s a mess but we need to let good people do the cleanup.
