In Most Socialist Countries the Mentally Ill, the Physically Challenged, the Socio-Economically Marginalized Sub-Populations Receive Welfare from the Public Treasury. Here We Give Crooked PoliTurds the Pay and Benefits We Have to Do Without. They’re Double- and Triple Dipping!
Why are we paying to be abused and to have our rights violated?
Are we nutz or just plain stupid?!?
Why do we have to support them and carry them until they retire and then continue to support and carry them. Why do we reward incompetence and stupidity? We control the purse strings so let’s cut them off, get rid of them!
What does this mean to you, the gainfully employed? To you, the taxpayer? The resident who is paying a mortgage, putting food on the table for your family, working a second job, coping with gas prices, etc.
We’ve been writing for some time now about abuses, criminal conduct, crookedness, violation of constitutional rights, etc. done by local public servants and local elected officials. Maybe we’re not getting through to our readers so we decided to put it a different way for you all. Here it is:
You may or may not know that the very people who are sitting on the Ravena village board and the town of Coeymans board members and supervisor, are all elected officials. The mayor and supervisor are elected officials. They are all receiving salaries, benefits, and pension payments from your taxes. The director of the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center—which is costing Ravena taxpayers more than $105,000 this year alone—, Cathy Deluca, is receiving $30,000 a year salary from taxpayer money, for example.
Ravena mayor John Bruno and Ravena board member Nancy Biscone-Warner (Nancy Warner is also collecting a pension for being village of Ravena clerk/treasurer and Warner’s husband, ex-Albany cop, Harold “Hal” Warner, is cashing in as a village of Ravena justice and receiving a police pension), two lunatics in the Ravena village offices, are now picking on local kids but are receiving salaries, benefits, and pension payments out of the public treasury. Everyone hates John Bruno and he’s transformed Ravena into a ghost town over the past 30 years but you keep the mummy mayor in office and in spending money in addition to his pension from the cement plant. Pretty cozy. Bruno and his mob are some of the biggest abusers of your rights and the biggest crooks around but you’re paying them! Why is that?
Let’s go over to the Coeymans Police Department for a minute. Pretty much everyone in the Coeymans Police Department and the Coeymans town offices can’t stand Coeymans police chief DoDo-cop Gregory Darlington; he’s useless, ignorant, and incompetent. And most of the cops hate BoBo-cop Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca; he’s arrogant, dumb as dirt, and wants a piece of every action (he’s got Cathy Deluca, hauling in $30-grand from Ravena, besides). Kerry Thompson has a job with the Sheriff’s office but has been hired to do Darlington’s work for him (but still can’t keep a search warrant straight or take a resident’s complaint). We have Ryan Johnson who was dumped by another police department only to be hired by Coeymans’s Darlington; Ryan Johnson has earned the reputation as “Psycho cop,” in fact.
The latest is the bizarre coöperation between Ravena mayor John Bruno, his hatchet-woman Nancy Biscone-Warner, and the Coeymans Police Department to enforce a conspicuously unconstitutional loitering law and harass local kids who may, as kids do, congregate around the gazebo in the center of the village. Way to go, public leeches, criminalize innocent behavior!
They’re also attacking the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center, the one place in Bruno’s ghost town where the kid’s can go and enjoy socializing and other kids. Did the village of Ravena provide a youth center to get the kids off the street? NO!!! Did the Town of Coeymans provide a youth center to get the kids off the street? NO!!! Did a local resident, out of concern for the welfare of local youth invest his savings, take additional jobs, invest his personal time and money to create a beautiful place for the kids to hang out under supervision? YES!!! Is village of Ravena mayor John Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Biscone-Warner making life miserable for the resident as well as the kids. YES!!! Why are you RCS residents paying for these lunatics?
The village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans don’t provide a place for the kids to congregate, they harass and prosecute them. Harassing and prosecuting them costs nothing and is an indirect source of revenue for the leeches. It also provides one of their most potent weapons against the community: anxiety and fear. All dictators use anxiety and fear to control the people.
Far from providing a place for kids between 12 and 17 to congregate, the village of Ravena through mayor John Bruno, Nancy Biscone Warner, Martin “Marty” Case, William “Bill” Bailey, Rocco Persico all joined up and all elected officials being paid by the public to spend $40,000 of taxpayer money on used fitness equipment from an insider and then rent/lease the property where Cathy Deluca’s failed fitness center was located to the operator and philanthropist who created the Teen Center there. The village of Ravena pays Bob [Persico] Fisk (Fisk’s mother was a Persico and does he have a history with the insider club in Ravena village hall!!!) $40,000 for fitness equipment. Then insider Josie Bruno of Prudential Real Estate (Marty Case also works part-time there as a real estate sales person as well as being a full-time teacher in the RCS Central School District; he now wants to run for the full-time position as Coeymans town supervisor. Talk about greedy!). Then Bruno, Warner, Case, and Cathy Deluca hold closed-door meetings to conjure up the Ravena Health and Fitness Center while conniving to evict the RCS Community Library and ups the library’s rent by $600 a month while Ravena board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, Don Persico, is taking his time renovating the old Knights of Columbus hall on Main Street, so he can lease it to the RCS Community Library. Once the library leaves its premises at the Ravena village hall building, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center moves in, Bruno, Warner, Case, Bailey and Persico allocate more than $105, 000 to fund the first year of the Fitness Center, and then proceed to hire, NO! appoint Cathy Deluca to be the Fitness center director at a salary of $30,000 plus benes and pension, while fraudulently getting the democrat Albany County Civil Service Department Michael Cummings to create a new civil service job title for Deluca—all fraudulently, since no mention is made of her murdering the previously failed health and fitness center she managed where the Teen Center is now located and she had no qualifications—and the nitwit director of the Albany County Civil Service Department approved the village of Ravena’s application for exempt status for Deluca’s position. That means she didn’t have to take a test to get the position like anyone else would have to do. Do you smell corruption here? That’s all been uncovered by this blog and is or should be under investigation by the Albany County Executive’s Office and the NYS Civil Service Commissioner.
This just in!
We’ve just received a note from one of our correspondents regarding the Albany County Civil Service Department manager Mr Michael Cummings. The note reads:
“I recently filed several F.O.I.L.s with the Albany County Civil Service Department and was concerned that my cc’s to the director of the department, Mr Michael Cummings, were being bounced back as ‘undeliverable.’ I wondered if he might have gotten really peeved for my inquiries into the village of Ravena’s request for creation of a civil service title for Cathy Deluca and that he was blocking my emails. I found out he was really on the hot seat about what he let slide by regarding Ravena’s request. So I contacted the F.O.I.L. officer at the County Exec’s office who wrote back: “Michael Cummings is no longer employed at Albany County Civil Service” and “Michael Cummings does not work for the county any longer.” I’m just wondering if Mr Cummings got canned once the cat hit the fan about the Ravena application and Deluca’s questionable position.”
We think Cummings got canned for the flack they received and the fact that there was no good reason for the Albany County Civil Service Department approving the request when they didn’t have any of the documents required by the law. They really came out of the fray with faces covered in rotten egg and Cummings probably got canned in the process or “resigned.”
It looks like making noise and asking the right questions is having its effects…maybe they got cold feet anticipating an investigation by the State Attorney General and the State Civil Service Commission. Ravena, of course, is really tight-lipped about the entire affair. Wonder Why?
Now, where is that sleazy Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, the polititurd this county elected to oversee law enforcement and to prosecute criminal behavior in Albany County? Wait a minute, he has his own problems, doesn’t he?
And what’s the first thing Cathy Deluca achieves in her new plum job, even before the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is officially opened? She opens her big mouth and gets the village of Ravena served with a Notice of Claim and a lawsuit for at least $1,000, 000 (Yes! That’s one million dollars at least). She then opens herself up to criminal charges by lying to the Coeymans Police about an incident that never happened. Another Notice of Claim, another lawsuit, another $1,000,000.
Are you following all of this? It gets better and this is just one item!
But does the village of Ravena have any money for a youth center or to support the RC Teen and Youth Activity Center— after spending more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to Bob Fisk for used fitness equipment and then allocating more than $105,000 to support the Ravena Health and Fitness Center in its 2013-2014 budget—NO!!! But it does have the money to put up cameras to monitor local kids hanging around the village gazebo. By the way, the village gazebo with its “No Loitering by Order of the Village Board” sign is on private property and the village pays rent to an insider, Don Persico (Yes. The same Persico who owns the new Library location!) to have the gazebo on his property. Is the smell getting stronger, we ask you?
OK. So now we have all of the village of Ravena’s priorities lined up. Now let’s get back to Coeymans.
Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca—that’s her full name but the village of Ravena still thinks it’s just Cathy Deluca—has a long history of salacious behavior before she became socialite and Ravena Health and Fitness Center director. (Her extramarital fun-on-the-farm with her now spouse Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington‘s darling and a so-called police investigator with the Coeymans Police Department is a legend in these parts.) But the connection with the Coeymans P.D. is what we want to look at here. It’s an example of what you’re paying for.
The criminal complaint against Cathy Deluca goes to the Coeymans Police Department for criminally falsely reporting an incident and conspiracy, both misdemeanors. Disappears! POOF! How’d that happen?
Coeymans Police Chief Gregory Darlington, former garbage collector, later Coeymans police officer, then—after taking the civil service exam at least three times before he passed it—through some administrative brain fart hired to be Coeymans Police Chief, once in the job, rehired all the duds his predecessor had fired, including Guess who? YUP! Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca. So now you have an incompetent Deluca (Jerry) on the Coeymans police force and an incompetent Deluca i(Cathy) in a director’s position at the village of Ravena. Now, remember Cathy’s first accomplishments as director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center? The lawsuits? The criminal complaint goes to the Coeymans Police Department for criminally falsely reporting an incident and conspiracy, both misdemeanors. Disappear! POOF! How’d that happen, you may well ask, given the solid evidence provided? You should ask Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington (Don’t bother. He doesn’t answer calls, he doesn’t respond to emails, he doesn’t answer letters.) Or ask Officer Jason Albert, the investigating officer (Don’t bother. He wants to keep his job. He has only about 5 years til retirement and he wants his pension.) Or ask Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, police investigator, if he has any hand in getting the charges to disappear or leaking the evidence against his wife to the village of Ravena’s insurance company’s attorney? You’re also paying that dud David Wukitsch to be the Coeymans town attorney—should we ask him?
Criminal charges, even felonies, tend to disappear in Ravena-Coeymans if you’re the son of a board member (Right, Tom Dolan?) or the daughter of a board member (Right Dawn Rogers?), of if you have “friends in the police department” (Right, Scott Lendin?) or if you’re married to an employee of the Coeymans Police Department (Right, Cathy Deluca?). But watch out if you’re a kid congregating with other kids on the village of Ravena gazebo—you’re being videoed and a Coeymans patrol car is on it’s way to getcha!
Now we have to move on to who gets jobs in the village offices and in the town of Coeymans offices and now that we have exposed the spider’s web of incest and favoritism at work at your expense in Ravena-Coeymans, we’ll turn our attention to the candidates the dems have nominated for pubic office in the upcoming elections. Better take an anti-puke pill before reading the next article, you’ll need one.
