Theft, Malicious Mischief, Damage to Property, Trespassing: And you call yourself a retired Marine?!?!

— We Rarely Publish Letters in their Entirety but this Letter Really Needs to Get Out to Our Readers for Two Reasons:

  1. Someone locally is hiding his/her criminal behaviour behind a mask of pseudo-patriotism and tarnishing an honorable armed force, the United States Marine Corps.

  2. The victims have provided the Coeymans police with enough evidence to choke a horse; let’s see if they can handle an investigation, arrest, prosecution now that they’ve been handed everything but the perpetrator himself!

Done Like a Thief in the Night, not like a Marine

Done Like a Thief in the Night, not like a Marine

Call it a test, call it a challenge. Call it whatever you want but we are calling on the Coeymans police department to investigate, arrest, and on the Coeymans town court to prosecute and sentence the thief, vandal, and trespasser who is maligning the tradition of the United States Marine Corps. Here’s the full text of the letter we’ve been asked to publish:


WHO STOLE THE AMERICAN FLAG?

 Animated_Flag

The majestic 7×14 foot flag on the 40 foot high flag pole when raised was an exciting day for my family and our community. The symbolic American Flag for all to honor as they pass by. Quietly expressive, a daily reminder of our responsibility to protect the constitution, honor those who have served and died for this country, and be thankful that each of us has the opportunity to have opinions and fight for our rights and freedom.

SEVERAL DAYS AGO THIS FLAG WAS STOLEN—THE CABLES HOLDING THE FLAG WERE CUT, ALSO TAKEN, A NOTE WAS LEFT By the Perpetrator, Trespasser, but he/she did not have the decency or guts to sign their name… The note read   “USMC RETIRED” [Editor’s Note: But the moron who left the note left it on a letter from a social services agency with identifying information on the back!]

WHOEVER YOU ARE, DO NOT INSULT THE MARINE CORPS. MY BROTHER WAS A MARINE AND DIED FOR THIS COUNTRY!   Your behavior is not that of a Marine.

A REAL MARINE would have shown respect, honesty integrity.   A REAL MARINE would not trespass, sneak onto someone else’s property when no one was there; purposefully damage property and steal the AMERICAN FLAG which they had no right to take.

A REAL MARINE would have stopped to ask if we knew the bottom of the flag was torn, and if we needed help to take it down considering the high winds and weather.

If YOU had taken the appropriate action – to contact us – You would have been informed that the reason the flag was still up, even though bottom stripe was torn due to high (30+miles an hour) winds, was that it was too dangerous to take it down. But most important, YOU would have been told that we felt it was better to wait until more clement weather so as not to cause additional damage to the flag —it would be impossible to prevent Flag from falling on the ground with high winds; you would have been informed that we already had a replacement flag and as soon as the weather permitted, the flag would be replaced. You would have been THANKED for expressing your concern for the flag we love and respect.

BUT NO! YOU took it upon yourself to TRESPASS, DESTROY PROPERTY, AND STEAL! You, who were so concerned about ONE tear……   god knows how damaged the flag was when you cut the cables allowing the flag to fall 40 feet to the ground/mud with the high winds of this week-end.   Your indignant, iniquitous, self-righteous behavior apparently has overridden your senses on what is truly correct and legal behavior, in regard to OUR GREAT NATIONS FLAG! You’re not a Marine, you’re a common thief, a criminal acting under cover of darkness!

That is why I cannot respect you, an individual who is a sneak and a liar PLEASE DONOT TRY TO JUSTIFY YOUR ABERRANT BEHAVIOR ON YOUR purporting to be a “RETIRED MARINE” . This is an insult to those who exhibit honor, respect for others, tolerance, bravery and integrity, not only in battle, but in their daily actions.

RETURN THE FLAG so it can be properly cared for.   HAVE THE COURAGE TO ADMIT WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!  ACT LIKE A MARINE: HAVE SOME GUTS!

To all who may read this, a reward is being offered for true, reliable information regarding this theft and disrespect towards the AMERICAN FLAG! Contact number 265-0745.

Thank you and GOD BLESS AMERICA!       Joseph Vadney,   Ann Marie Vadney and Family (the location of the flag was 1627 US Rt. 9W Selkirk)

 


 When we read stuff like this and we have to report stuff like the Deluca frauds, the violation of constitutional rights by elected officials and law enforcement officers, people who have taken oaths to defend the Constituion of the United States. When we have to report what’s going on in our village, town and city halls, the scandal, the disgrace, we are truly ashamed of the hypocrisy of those who have the gall, the nerve to call themselves Americans!

Men and women of honor do not break the law in the name of pseudo-patriotism and do not disgrace the men and women of the US Marine Corps by stamping their criminal activity with “Retired Marine.”

The Coeymans police department now has a duty and an obligation to this community to apprehend this criminal and to exhibit him for what he is: a thief, a coward, a despicable fraud and a dishonor to this community!

Thief! You bear the shame of a naked rat!

Thief! You bear the shame of a naked rat!

Bruno Doesn’t Realize He’s Not Mayor Anymore: Asking for donations for centennial!

You have to admit, ex-mayor of Ravena, John T. Bruno, may have old-man balls but he does have a big pair. In fact, he’s got the balls to have sent out a letter to Ravena residents begging for money to fund the Bruno-Warren-Deluca centennial events, events conjured up by his crooked administration and the crooks he surrounded himself with.

BRUNO'S GOT A PAIR

BRUNO’S GOT A PAIR

Ex-mayor of the village of Ravena, John T. Bruno, recently sent out an undated letter to Ravena residents in which he acts as though he were still mayor of Ravena. Poor senile bastard is having a hard time letting go of his office keys and doesn’t know that technically he’s not mayor any more and has to start cooling his rejected jets. What’s even more pitiful is that Bruno doesn’t seem to realize that the jig is up! The world knows about his corruption and his crooked administration, and about his lackeys Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, both of whom are going to be back on the street, but who also can’t seem to grasp that their days in village hall are numbered. They still think that they have Bruno’s threats and strongarm tactics to keep them in their playpens at taxpayer expense.

While Nancy Warner is a trustee and should be doing her job for which she was elected, she’s got her hooked nose in everything else. But that’s Nancy Warner, never could mind her own business. But now that her pimp is out of office, she’s going to be very lonely—she’s already kissing and cudling up to mayor-elect Bill Misuraca, hoping to cast off the Bruno stench and make new allies. If mayor-elect Misuraca falls for it he’s going to be a disappointment. Clean house completely Misuraca. Take no prisoners. Leave one standing and you’ll find the knife in your back. Look what happened in New Baltimore with the leftovers from the O’Rorke gang!

And what’s Cathy Deluca doing chairing a centennial committee when her playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center can’t get enough members to break even? Why isn’t she concentrating every minute of every day ensuring that Ravena taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars are paying off? Of course not, Deluca’s a greedy bitch who gets her rocks off grabbing everything in sight, contaminating it with Deluca stench, and then leaving it to die a slow death, while she does the cellulite jiggle all the way to the bank! Now after she’s done her damage with the support of ex-mayor John Bruno and his bitch, Nancy Warner, Deluca wants to manage the centennial celebrations down to hell and beyond, putting her stamp on it. Our question is this: What’s in it for Cathy Deluca. There has to be something to steal or grab somewhere!

So we really had to rush to the bathroom when we read this part of the Bruno begging letter (read or download the entire letter New letter from Bruno WTF[2]):

As you can imagine planning and coordinating all of these activities require a lot of effort on the part of a number of volunteers. In addition to the effort needed to provide these activities it also requires that some additional money is spent to bring this celebration to our community. The village Board has made provision in its budget to meet some of these costs, but we cannot let all of the cost fall to the taxpayers. Some of the events, such as the Gala will allow us to charge a ticket fee to attend. However others such as the Parade and are true community events and no fee can or will be charged. With this in mind we are seeking sponsors to assist us in meeting the costs of this once in a lifetime celebration.

Bruno continues to think that village of Ravena taxpayers and residents are as stupid as they were two years ago, before this blog started exposing the crooks and their vile corruption. The proposed budget for 2014-15 includes $11,000 for “Celebrations” (page 9, item 7550.44). In the Adjusted Budget for 2013-14, $6,000 was allocated for “celebrations,” and while we can’t remember any “celebrations” we do remember some events associated with the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center that were probably paid for with that “celebrations” money. So add about $6,000 to the $105,000 already allocated to Cathy Deluca’s playpen, because we didn’t see any celebrations last year in Ravena.

And then Bruno goes on to talk about how the village needs “Sponsors” to cover the cost of the centennial celebrations. You really want to laugh out loud when you read this crap because if Bruno hadn’t done his best to drive residents and business out of Ravena, he wouldn’t have to beg for sponsors. They’d be there on Main Street! Ask Mr Nunziato (Halfway House) about that!

But this paragraph really makes you sick to your stomach:

 For additional information on the events or if you are interested in working with the committee on any of the other events please contact, Committee Chair Cathy Deluca at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center at Village Hall , 15 Mountain Road, Ravena, NY 12143,518,756.5544 or ravhf@mhcable.com

Can you believe this, Spock?

Can you believe this, Spock?

What a slap in the face of Ravena residents and taxpayers! He’s shoving Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center down residents’ throats as “Committee Chair” of the centennial events! Let’s make this suggestion to Mr Bruno: Cathy Deluca has milked the village of Ravena for $30,000 a year plus benefits. The word on the street is that Bruno handed Cathy Deluca a playpen called the Ravena Health and Fitness Center as a reward for some favors done by her or her husband, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, a former employee of the Coeymans police department. We can’t even start to imagine the corruption that was going on to get Cathy Deluca another health club to run and fail. Then Bruno and his monkeys on the Ravena village board spent more than $40,000 in taxpayer dollars on used fitness equipment bought from a friend of Village Hall, and allocated more than $105,000 in the 2013-14 village budget to run Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The 2014-15 proposed budget allocates another more than $105,000 to run the Fitness Center and even gives Cathy Deluca a $900 pay raise. We don’t understand this waste of taxpayer money for several reasons: (1) the Fitness Center is losing money, (2) the Fitness Center isn’t getting members to offset the cost of running it, (3) the 2014-15 proposed budget actually shows that the Fitness Center is expected to operate more than $50,000 in the red in 2014-15, (4) the Village Proposed Budget for 2014-15 shows that the Village doesn’t expect the Fitness Center to break even in the budget period, (5) the Fitness Center doesn’t pay any rent to the Village for the space it occupies, nor is there any evidence it pays for utilities or for insurance. So here’s our suggestion to Mr ex-mayor John Bruno when he writes that he needs money for the community celebration of the 100 years of incorporation of the Village of Ravena:

    • Fire Cathy Deluca and you’ll save at least $30,000 more for the celebrations
    • Close the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and you’ll save at least another $50,000-$105,000
    • Sell the used fitness equipment you purchased from Bob Fisk for $40,000 and you’ll probably have to go in the hole to cover the costs of carting the junk equipment away
    • Get rid of the Ravena Village Court and you’ll save at least $85,000 (Hal Warner’s salary is $15,948 and the justice clerk makes more than $40,000; the part-time clerk makes more than $12,000. That’s more than $67,000 in savings right there!)
    • Return some of the money your administration has either stolen or squandered or paid to insiders (did we mention Michael Biscone or Gregory Teresi?) and we could probably renovate all of Main Street, Ravena, and have plenty to spare!

 Now there’s a sensible plan for funding the community celebrations that Mr Bruno’s feeble-minded letter does not propose. Ravena voters have taken a major step in the direction of revitalizing the Village of Ravena without having to resort to begging: Voters got rid of John Bruno, Martin Case, and Rocco Persico. There’s still a lot of pest control to be done in Ravena Village Hall and voters can clean up Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey in the next elections, or they could avoid the embarassment and humiliation of losing the elections by simply resigning now. Mayor-elect Misuraca and the new Village board majority can take the bull by the horns and clean up the rest of the dead wood and garbage in Village Hall and eliminate the money pits like Cathy Deluca’s playpen and Nancy and Hal Warner’s playpen, the Ravena Village Court. That would be a really good start.

Maybe if Bruno and his Coeymanazi friends hadn’t persecuted, harassed, and intimidated the Greater Coeymans Ravena Area Community Business Group and the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activity Center things might have turned out less noxious and maybe even a bit rosier. But …

Share Our Shock: State Fire Chiefs’ Association Hires Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

 For Years Gerald a.k.a. “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca Has Been the Scoundrel of Coeymans and Now The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Has Hired Deluca to be Their Executive Director and CEO! Is this A Bad Joke, NYSAFC?

WTF!!! Deluca Pulls a fast-one on the Fire Chiefs Association

WTF!!!
Deluca Pulls a fast-one on the Fire Chiefs Association

Jerry Deluca Sure Knows How to Cook a Résumé

For years now, the Ravena-Coeymans community has been witness to Cathy and Jerry Deluca playing fast and easy with the village and the town, lying, cheating, abusing, harassing, intimidating. Cathy Deluca has a mask for every occasion and has been taking the village of Ravena for a ride for years, her most recent scam being the Ravena Health and Fitness Center (soon to go bye-bye), Cathy’s playpen, to the tune of $30,000 a year plus benefits. Dirty-Hands Jerry played dirty cop for years in the Coeymans police department and recently resigned but not before he was able to disgrace everyone associated with the Coeymans police department and do irreparable damage to local residents’ confidence in law enforcement and in the Coeymans police deparment. Deluca is an arch-liar, cheat, and soundrel.

We have been reporting on Deluca’s very suspicious claims of lobbying, consulting, public relations activities while employed full-time with the Coeymans police department, and have raised questions of fraud by Deluca, who recently resigned from the Coeymans police department after claiming to be on the force for 32 years. We questioned that claim because the numbers simply didn’t work out. And then he had all these claims of other employment, including with the NYS Assembly (where no one seems to have heard of him or they won’t admit knowing him), to the ARANY directorship (ARANY is a special interest automotive recycling organization), his questionable contacts with the NYS Department of Environmental Conserviation, and so many other claims that Deluca makes the impression of being capable of being in several places at the same time. Did the town of Coeymans drop the ball when investigationg Deluca?

The Town of Coeymans town board didn’t seem to do any checks on Deluca. His buddy and pal, Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington didn’t seem interested in doing any checks on Deluca’s claims, either. Why did Deluca get away with his frauds?

What’s worse, now that the fat rat has jumped ship in Coeymans he seems to have bamboozled the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, too! In an announcement appearing on the Association’s website we found old Dirty-Hands Jerry learing with a self-satisfied grin (see photo above) as if saying, “Did it again! Fooled the stupid bastards at NYSAFC, too!” (Read the entire farce at “NYSAFC Appoints New Executive Director & CEO” (March 24, 2014).

The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs (NYSAFC), is the statewide association representing career and volunteer fire chiefs throughout New York. In the online artile announcing the appointment, the NYSAFC writes:

DeLuca has an extensive history of public and emergency service as well as being a highly qualified association manager. He has previously worked as executive director of the Automotive Recyclers Association of New York and as the director of government affairs for the New York State Motor Truck Association
DeLuca has a long history with the fire service. He currently is a deputy county fire coordinator in Albany County and was previously 1st assistant chief of the Ravena Fire Department. DeLuca also served as a part-time police investigator and public information officer for the Town of Coeymans Police Department.

Does anyone in the Ravena-Coeymans recognize any truth in that description of old Dirty-Hands Jerry? We certaingly don’t.

The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, by publishing such garbage, have wittingly or unwittingly labeled themselves as the winners of the 2014 Dumbass Award, hands down. The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs selection committee have done the NYSAFC a gross disservice and an unpardonable injustice by labeling it as a haven for the likes of Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca. They’ve also identified themselfs as being incompetent in hiring/appointing capable individuals with any semblance of honor, honesty, or integrity—character features absolutely absent in Dirty-Hands Jerry. The NYSAFC has also identified itself as pitiably ignorant or indifferent to the image it has cast of itself, to the great dishonor and discredit of its membership, by associating itself at all with the likes of Dirty-Hands Jerry. It’s absolutely scandalous that any credible organization should associate itself with the person and the legacy of Gerald Delcuca, and even worse to put him in a position of such visibility as Executive Director/CEO!

Doesn’t the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs do Résumé Checks or Background Inquiries????

Gerald "Dirty-Hands Jerry" Deluca's Résumé Fraud

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s Résumé
Fraud

The NYSAFC announcement says that Dirty-Hands Jerry was a “highly qualified association manager,” that Deluca was “executive director of the Automotive Recyclers Association of New York” and that Deluca “a part-time police investigator“. That’s not everything Deluca claims to be or to have done but it does suffice to raise quite a number of questions about Deluca’s fraudulent claims. If he was, aa the announcement claims, a “part-time police investigator” how is it that the newspapers of the Johnson Newspaper Group touted him as having 32 years on the Coeymans police force, falsely giving the impression he was full-time for 32 years! So, did Deluca resign/retire on a part-timer’s pension? And if he was part time on the Coeymans police force, and was doing all those other things he claims to have done, he must have been full-time or part-time employed somewhere else. Where might that have been? And where and how did Deluca become “a highly qualified association manager?” If he’s such a hotshot association manager and executive director, why in hell was he working part-time as a police investigator for a measly $30k a year?!? If he’s so experienced, highly qualified, and so in demand, why wasn’t he making 4 or 5-times that amount or more? Something’s fishy here…it stinks like Deluca, in fact. Just like Jerry Deluca’s wife, Cathy Deluca, closed at least two fitness centers and a public relations office (or so she claims) but has no qualifications whatsoever, and weasles her way into becoming director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which is failing, losing tons of taxpayer money, and will likely be closed soon! That’s the Deluca fraud: lies. All lies!

Even for argument’s sake, if what the NYSAFC writes about Deluca is true and what the local news media writes is mistaken and Delcua was in fact a “part-time police investigator” he must have had another job somewhere, even if it was only part-time. But where, Jerry, might that have been? And what was that other job? Did it create a conflict of interest with your police department activiites? Did you misuse your position with the Coeymans police to further your other positions, if any? Quite a few reports that you did in fact abuse your access to privileged police department information sources to intimidate residents and further your interests. The Town of Coeymans is going to have to explain your claim of 32 years on the Coeymans police force and we’re going to call the Civil Service Department to task to verify your entitlement to a pension. Maybe NYSAFC should be more diligent in it’s checking. Maybe NYSAFC members should demand more due diligence from their organization’s aministrative staff. Or does the NYSAFC hire Executive Directors/CEOs with only questionable part-time employment. But that still doesn’t explain some of the wild claims made in the NYSAFC announcement, does it?

If the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Swallowed Deluca’s Story Either They’re Just as Crooked or Dumb as Dirt!

It’s obvious that the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs failed to do a résumé or background check on Dirty-Hands Jerry or they would have discovered the many complaints made against him for everything from misdemeanor harassment of women, intimidation, obstruction of justice, sundry lies, abuse of public office, corruption. We wonder what the membership of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs will make of their new Executive Director/CEO when they read this blog and the many articles on Dirty-Hands Jerry and his scandalous conduct here at home.

O.K. This is a bad joke. Right? NYS Association of Fire Chiefs? You Really Didn’t Fall for Old Dirty-Hands Jerry’s Lies and Frauds, Did You?

 And what’s the Town of Coeymans town board doing about the outstanding complaints and Notices of Claim filed against Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca and his partner-in-crime, Cathy Deluca? Or are the outstanding complaints against him and the Coeymans police department going to disappear like they’ve done in the past? It seems the criminals get to go Scott free in the Town of Coeymans, and most of them find a home in the Coeymans police department, later to be welcomed with open arms by the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs!!!

Residents, citizens, voters WAKE UP! Write to the NYSAFC and demand that they dump Deluca. Call lthe Town of Coeymans town board  to task and demand that the criminals in the Coeymans police department, especially Deluca’s accomplice in obstruction of justice, Gregory Darlington, be disciplined. Support the civic drive to eliminate the Coeymans police department.

NYSAFC: You Made A Big Mistake!  Investigate Deluca, then Terminate Him!!!

Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department: Your Vote

Most Citizens/Residents Don’t Trust the Coeymans Police Department because of Real-Life Experiences with a Number of Thugs-in-Uniform. The Criminals are Resigning or Retiring and Disappearing before they Can be Prosecuted; Kerry Thompson got Pulled and Put Behind a Desk by Craig Apple; Dirty-Hands Jerry “Resigned/Retired” and now is Collecting Taxpayer Dollars as Pension Benefits. Rumor is that the Corrupt New York State Fire Chiefs Association, a Lobby Organization, Has Picked-up the Coeymans Reject.

We’ve been reporting on the corruption and criminality in the Coeymans P.D. for quite some time now but with the recent revelations by former Coeymans judge Phillip Crandall of corruption in the Coeymans P.D. and the Coeymans Courts, Our Worst Fears are Confirmed.

From the Judge Himself: Coeymans Judge Resigns, Insider Exposes Corruption

Coeymans Town Justice and acting Ravena Village Justice Phillip Crandall Resigns and Exposes Corruption in the Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymans Town Court, and in sitting Coeymans Board Members! Forced to Resign but Goes Public.

COEYMANS JUDGE TALKS: INSIDER THROWS COEYMANS POLICE AND BOARDMEMBERS IN!!!,

COEYMANS JUDGE TALKS: INSIDER THROWS COEYMANS POLICE AND BOARDMEMBERS UNDER THE BUS!!!

INSIDER EXPOSES COEYMANS, RAVENA CORRUPTION!

When reporting on corruption, harassment, and intimidation involving local government, local police, and local courts it sometimes feels like we’re fighting city hall. Sometimes it might even look like we are grinding axes for some poor bastards. But when an insider, a local politician and a sitting judge gets railroaded because he’s not a company boy and is rocking the boat, and when that insider goes public with his insider knowledge and experiences: That’s news. But when the insider-turned-informer actually confirms what we’ve been writing about and exposing on this blog, well…THAT”S GREAT! Judge Phillip Crandall may have been forced to resign by some unidentified “complainant” who didn’t like what Crandall had to say, and decided Crandall had to go, but now Crandall has gone public with insider information that confirms everything we have been saying all along about how the Coeymans police department operates and how Coeymans insiders are getting special treatment both by the Coeymans cops and by the Coeymans courts. It also points to the Coeymans town board as being accomplices in the illegal activity by not doing a damned thing to correct the criminal activities going on in the Coeymans police department and with some people who think that they are special and above the law. Here’s the story:

Judge Phillip Crandall

Judge Phillip Crandall

Mr Crandall was apparently targeted before the November 2013 elections that removed the majority of corrupt Coeymans town board members. In that election, two very close friends of the Coeymans police department, Thomas Boehm and Dawn Rogers, were ousted from the Coeymans town board, leaving only Tom Dolan to watch the Coeymanazi p.d.’s back and keep Gregory Darlington out of hot water. The November 2013 elections changed all that and Darlington’s ace-in-the-hole vaporized. Now Darlington is totally exposed and so is the Coeymans p.d.’s criminal activity. Ever wonder why “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca got out real quick? The public’s told he “resigned/retired”but we think there’s more behind that story. We’ll find out. Now we hear that old Dirty-Hands Jerry is working for the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs! Do they know what a snake they have hired?

First Kerry Thompson, Darlington’s brother-in-law and hireling, is pulled out of Coeymans by the Albany County Sheriff and given a desk job, then the elections, Deluca resigns, is there something in the air? Trouble for the Coeymans p.d.?

Well, back to Crandall. Unlike George Dardiani, the unethical company boy, team-player town justice who is an insider with the RCS Central School District mob (he was food services manager at the high school, so Dardiani can count on the support of the RCS-nazis, and his wife is a retired school nurse). Dardiani plays the political game and knows how to take orders from his supporters, so you can well imagine the kind of justice he metes out. During the 2012 school board elections he committed a serious violation of ethics and a formal complaint was filed with the New York State Unified Court System’s Commission on Judicial Conduct. The complaint was fully documented with photographic evidence and cited a number of sections of the Judicial Code of Ethics (New York State Judicial Law) but the complaint was dismissed with no action taken. Not even a warning! But that was a different time, wasn’t it? The democraps were holding the winning hands almost uniformly throughout the region. As long as Dardiani obeyed orders, he was safe and the Albany county democrap machine would protect him. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.

It's Already Started Anyone notice Nancy Warner kissing up to mayor-elect Misuraca?

It’s Already Started
Anyone notice Nancy Warner kissing up to mayor-elect Misuraca, just after the Elections? They never stop! Will Misuraca cave?

Same is true of sock puppet village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, Ravena “trustee” Nancy Warner’s husband, and close friend of the Delucas (Cathy Deluca runs the illegal money pit the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, an anal child of ex-mayor John Bruno and Nancy Warner). So you can see the conspiracy and collusion that’s was going on between the Village of Ravena under John Bruno and the corruption in the Coeymans police department and the Coeymans town board. Crandall was in the middle of it all, witnessing what was going on in Ravena and what was going on in Coeymans. If he had an ounce of ethics and integrity, which it appears he did, he probably opened his mouth once too often and so they decided to get rid of him.

Think of it this way: The pre-November 2013 Coeymans town board is protecting the Coeymans police department and getting favors in return. We know about Tom Dolan’s son who has a drug problem but we never hear about it in the police blotter or in the local media. Ever wonder why? And what about Dawn Rogers’ daughter’s drinking problems and the DWIs? Not a peep, right? And Dawn LaMountains’ (she’s Coeymans p.d. chief Darlingtons “confidential secretary.”) sons’ speeding and property damage to local residents’ property? Or what about the campaign sign vandalism in which police department kids were involved? Why did all that get swept under the table? Well, when Tom Boehm, Dawn Rogers and Tom Dolan were on the Coeymans town board, all the insiders were getting special treatment by the Coeymans police department and the Coeymans town court.

Now look at the special situation of Ravena and the Coeymans police department. Ever wonder why John Bruno and Nancy Warner, supported by the other two lackies, now ex-trustees, Martin Case and Rocco Persico, handed Cathy Deluca a new playpen called the Ravena Health and Fitness Center? Ever wonder why they got all generous with taxpayer money to put Cathy Deluca in her new playpen, get her a non-competitive civil service classification, give her a starting salary of $30,000 a year plus complete benefits, and get this, the new Ravena budget gives Cathy Deluca a $900 pay raise (and the 2014-2015 Ravena Proposed Budget allocates another $105,000 to support the Ravena Health and Fitness Center! If mayor-elect Bill Misuraca and his new village council let that happen, they all need to be lynched!). Cathy Deluca has no qualifications and has already managed at least two fitness clubs into failure! The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is losing money and the projected figures in the 2014-15 Ravena budget actually shows the RHFC will be operating in the RED by more than $50,000 in 2014-15!!!! It’s not getting the members it needs to even come close to breaking even, it pays no rent or utilities ao add rent losses and utility bills to the losses! (The RCS Community library, which was rushed out of that space by Bruno and Warner paid rent at least!)

Why the special treatment for Cathy Deluca? Ever think that maybe something was going on between the Bruno mafia, Ravena village hall, and the Coeymans police department and somebody had to get paid off? Like when bully-cop Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was “investigator” in the Coeymans police department and had access to privileged and confidential police records and files? How about that for political cash!

And ever wonder why Cathy Deluca was never investigated and charged for falsely reporting an incident? Or why Coeymans police officer Jason Albert was never disciplined for obstruction of justice? Why wasn’t Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and RCS teacher and union rep Matt Miller arrested for harassing and threatening a woman speaker at a RCS school board meeting? Or why citizens’ complains just vaporize when they hit Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlingtons’ desk? Or why certain things make the local media, the democrap rag the Albany Times Useless and the local village hall newsletter calling itself the Ravena News Herald?

throw them underDid you know that Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner, ex-mayor Bruno’s bitch, oversees the Ravena village court…the court where Harold “Hal” Warner is judge? Now isn’t that cozy? Nancy Warner is so far up John Bruno’s arse she can count his fillings. Nancy Warner is in bed with Cathy Deluca. Cathy Deluca is married to former Coeymans p.d. cop Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, who is Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s pet snake, Darlington is doing favors for Coeymans board members and their families, keeping them off the police blotter, and Coeymans town justice George Dardiani is a sock puppet, playing the game and taking his orders. Former Coeymans board members Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers, and sitting board member Tom Dolan make certain that the town board doesn’t take any adverse action against the Coeymans p.d. and the Coeymans town court makes certain that any crimes committed by insiders or their family members are “negotiated” down to charges of “parking on the sidewalk.”

We’ve been writing about all this and more but now it is being confirmed by a Coeymans town judge who was also an acting Village of Ravena judge, an insider with firsthand knowledge! Isn’t it interesting how it all comes out once the tower of corruption starts to crumble? All it takes is a bad move by the puppet-masters and the shit hits the proverbial fan. That’s exactly what’s happening now.

Think about it: Voters in THREE regional local elections, Coeymans, New Baltimore and Ravena, have tossed out long-standing elected officials and put in new majorities. Ravena made the loudest statement by dumping mayor John Bruno who had 6 terms as mayor under his belt, and a virtual strangle-hold on the village of Ravena, and was choking the village to death. Voters are sick and tired of the lies, the favoritism and the corruption and are growing the cojones to change things…at least at the local level. But that’s where all change has to start: locally. And this blog has been an important force in making that change because we report on what you don’t hear in the News Channel 10 or read in the Albany Times Useless or the Ravena News Herald. The reason: NOBODY OWNS US!

Now, back to Crandall, again… Someone with some political influence back in early or mid-2013 filed a complaint with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, and the Commission, a politically appointed board, actually went ahead with an investigation and ultimately found Coeymans town justice and acting Ravena village justice, Phillip Crandall, guilty and recommended that he be removed from the bench and never run for judicial office again. Crandall says he would have fought the decision but was already $4,000 in the hole and decided not to fight it because he couldn’t afford it (sound familiar?). BUT, Crandall decided to go public with what he knew, at least as far as the charges against him were concerned, and you can read all about that in the local rags. What we’re interested in is what he’s not telling and the rest of what he knows.

But there’s still the question of whether Crandall would have come forward with all of this out of a sense of integrity and loyalty to the Constitution he swore to defend, and in defense of the people who voted for him, if he hadn’t been on the receiving end of his cronies treachery? We mustn’t forget that when he was elected, he was actually trained by that crook and corrupt Albany ex-cop, Hal Warner, so that doesn’t say much for ol’ Phily, does it? Did he come forward ony because he has an axe to grind now that they’ve put a knife deeply into his back? We’ll probably never know the answer to that one but we still have Crandall to milk for more information.

Not Gonna Happen Anymore! We're going after them all!

Not Gonna Happen Anymore!
We’re going after them all!

You see, dear readers, there are a number of Notices of Claim still pending that can turn into some lawsuits that can do some real damage when they’re filed. Those lawsuits directly affect the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans and misconduct of town and village employees, elected officials, and the Coeymans police department. When the previous crooks were in office, it was an uphill battle just to get information but now the scene has changed. Not only are the gatekeepers voted out and new people are in, people who can make things happen, but now we have a disgruntled former judge who has been screwed by the democrap machine, including crooked New York State Supreme Court Judge Joseph Teresi’s own son, Gregory Teresi, who is a village and town prosecutor (that dolt David Wukitsch is the inept town attorney, even though the town of New Baltimore’s new board had the sense to fire his ass!). Judge, now Mr Phillip Crandall, by going public with his insider information regarding his knowledge acquired while a judge has waived any claim to confidentiality and can now be called on to give testimony in other issues, especially the issues relating to the Town of Coeymans and the misconduct and criminal activity of the Coeymans police department and its employees, especially chief Gregory Darlington and ex-investigator Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

Just think of the information that will now become available now that the wall-of-silence has been cracked and the raw sewerage is leaking out! Just think about how we now have the opportunity to uncover the hidden connections between the crooks in Ravena village hall, the Delucas connection between village and town, the dirty favors and conspiracies that have been hatched. Just think about it for a moment! Now we have an insider who has cracked and someone who knows about the deals made in Coeymans town hall, the Coeymans police department, Ravena village hall, the confidential information that was violated, the civil rights violations, the laws that were broken, the obstruction of justice. All the crooks and criminals and all the criminal acts that were being paid for by Town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena taxpayers. All that was needed was for one insider to feel he got screwed by his buddies and … Well, this development is more than we could have wished for!

This development will no doubt reach some high places in Albany and will also get some sneaky bastards in New York State departments in some hot water, too. We’re thinking specifically of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and some of their questionable activities locally with zoning issues, waterways, etc. the Albany County Planning Board and local planning boards will likely also be scrutinized, like Laverne “Larry” Conrad’s (Coeymans code enforcement), Carver’s, Michael J. Biscone, and others’ cover-ups. The Coeymans police department and its former and present employees will have to answer some very sticky questions about violations of constitutional law, civil rights violations, hiring practices, abuse of public office and, worst of all, the many cases of obstruction of justice. The glaring examples have already been mentioned above but bear mentioning again: failing apprehend, to charge or to prosecute village and town officials or their family members for crimes committed, but violating other citizens’ rights with impunity! Not only the Department of Environmental Conservation (village of Ravena waste water and sewerage, the Camille Lane properties that buried protected waterway (Laverne Conrad and Michael Biscone, etc.)  but also the New York State Unified Court System (disciplines judges (only when convenient): Dardiani? Warner?), the Committee on Professional Conduct of the Third Appellate Division (disciplines attorneys: what about the glaring conflicts of interest of Gregory Teresi, David Wukitsch, Micheal J. Biscone?!? ), the New York State Office of the Attorney General, the New York State Comptroller’s Office (audits the village and the town and has overlooked corrupt practices like Nancy Warner overseeing her own husband’s court!)

When the shit hits the fan, the Albany County Sheriff, Craig Apple, who is a democrap lackey will be useless, since he’s got his own skeletons that are scratching their way out of the closet and likely to become full-fledged brain-eating zombies (who’ll probably starve in Albany because of the lack of brains), that may play havoc on his re-election chances. We can’t think of a single New York State Supreme Court judge in Albany who isn’t politically tainted or just plain corrupt who could hear any of the cases, so they’ll probably have to go out of county. The Albany County DA is corrupt and incompetent, he’s simply a token person-of-color (he’s not really African-American, since he’s from Cape Verde, West Africa) to carry the Albany democrap party on the race card, he’s a criminal who should be prosecuted like yesterday. We are still wondering where the local Albany field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI, and their local special agent, Mr Andrew Vale is checking in on all of this. He can’t be all that sharp if he’s assigned to backwater Albany, and certainly has been a real dunce when it comes to apprehending or prosecuting any local corruption or obstruction of justice. If Andrew Vale were on the ball, he’d have cleaned out the Coeymans police department long ago, but he hasn’t yet. Seems all local law enforcement, prosecutors, and courts will do is go after the poor bastard who can’t afford a proper defense; they can’t even do that right without harassment, intimidation, violating constitution law and civil rights, either. But we already knew that, Crandall is only confirming it from the inside.

But only if you let it

The Moose Makes History: A New Era of Life for Ravena

Coeymans Republican Party Chairwoman Barbara Cumm Makes Local History with an Historic Win for Change, Youth, Progress, and Integrity in the Village of Ravena!

A New Age Dawns for Ravena!!!

A New Age Dawns for Ravena!!!

The Moose Slams the Mummy Almost 2:1 Victory in the Ravena Mayoral Race!


The smalbany blog does it again! This is the third local election that this blog seems to have turned around in favor of the communities we serve! Thanks to our community contributors, we get the word out.

But we don’t deserve all of the credit, either!


Ravena has a new mayor: Republican Bill Misuraca Jr., defeated incumbent mayor John Bruno, a Democrat, 535-302. Misuraca, 41, will serve a four-year term. His Republican running mates for the two village trustee seats, Joel Coye and Keith Mahler, also won, defeating the incumbent Democrats Martin R. Case and Rocco Persico.

Results in the trustees race were Mahler, 548; Coye, 490; Case, 360; and Persico, 333.

The Bruno tyranny is ended, long live the Moose!

Barbara Cumm’s ingenious strategy in selecting a winning team from local business and community servants was a real winner! Cumm’s experience and wisdom has paid off again!

Well done, Barbara, Moose, Joel, Keith!

Well done, Barbara, Moose, Joel, Keith!

The Bruno tyranny is ended, long live the Moose! We have to hand the laurels to the Misuraca campaign because they did an incredibly great job of campaigning and public relations, starting with the unique and catchy moose signs throughout the area. The team was on the street pounding pavement and knocking on doors. A real down-to-earth, sincere campaign!

“We want to make the town more business-friendly,” Misuraca said. “We want to work more closely with the school district and try to restore some of the community pride and kind of give our Main Street a face lift.”

Although we’re not quite certain what the office of the mayor of Ravena has or should have to do with the RCS Central School District, we do want to caution Mr Mayor-elect Moose that there is plenty to be done in Ravena without getting involved with the RCS Central School District. And we recommend that mayor-elect Moose concentrate on the job at hand, which will be overwhelming if taken seriously: that is the job of rebuilding Ravena as a community. Leave the RCS Central School District alone; they have $42 million to play with and they’re not sharing it with Ravena (Matt Miller and the tearchers union will see to that). The office of mayor has nothing to do with the school district. If mayor-elect Moose and his village council want to get involved with youth, the Village of Ravena can fund some student/youth programs (once it gets rid of the illegal money pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and Bruno’s pet Cathy Deluca).

 If it appears you can’t control your own household how can residents expect you to run a village?

We do want to repeat our warning we issued at the start of the campaign: Jena Misuraca is the wife of the mayor-elect and should stay out of Village Hall. This talk of involvement with the school district sounds like a Mrs Mayor project and should be shelved immediately; it has nothing to do with governing Ravena. The voters elected Bill “Moose” Misuraca, not Jena Misuraca (and we don’t believe she ran for any trustee seats, either). If it appears you can’t control your own household how can residents expect you to run a village? If Mrs Mayor appears to be getting over-involved in village government because her husband was elected to be mayor, it could spell embarassment and problems for the new administration. Nip it in the bud, NOW!

All being said, we have to look on the dark side of things, too. Bruno has threatened to leave nothing in village hall for the new team to work with. According to a source who requested anonymity, Bruno has threatened to take his “years of hard work” with him and not to leave a scrap in village hall. Well, Mr Bruno, if you tamper or mess with anything in village hall, even remove a scrap of paper before you leave — we may be well advised to check with the office of the attorney general to see if such a threat might get Bruno evicted early from his office or have some security to check his briefcase and do a pat-down every day he’s in village hall — we’ll be on his hairy butt in a New York minute. Bruno was paid for his so-called demolition work while mayor and anything he did while mayor was paid for in full. Bruno has no personal or other claim to anything in village hall. Even any awards may be village property. So be careful, Mr Bruno, you lost the election and you need to leave village hall naked—or maybe with a little tar and some feathers, just to give you a good sending off.

One of the first things we’d like to see is for the new team to get rid of that money-pit the Ravena health and Fitness Center, sell the junk to recoup some of the village taxpayers’ money and re-allocate the money to fund a youth activities center or something the village needs! Now that we have the human element back in village government, we can look forward to bringing families and opportunity back to Ravena. We’ll need programs to accommodate the new community members.

Another matter that needs the new mayor’s immediate attention are the many Notices of Claim recently filed against the village. It would be of significant benfit and a sign of good will if the Village were to attempt to settle the most serious of the claims pending BEFORE they go to full filing in state and federal courts — We know for certain that several high-profile, high value claims are pending filing as we write. (The same would apply to the Town of Coeymans, against whom there are several major claims pending.) The Notices of Claim are a Bruno legacy (made possible by the idiocy of Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca) that you are inheriting and should seek to resolve before they are filed in state and federal court. A little good will goes a long way.

Something else we’d like to see is a cleaner, leaner village hall. Mayor Moose and his team have to get rid of the Bruno lackies, including Cathy Deluca, and the other parasites. Clean house, Moose! Fumigate the place and get rid of all the vermin. It’s the only way you can get a clean start!

The Moose and his team now have the majority on the village council. Next time around we get rid of Nancy Warner and that dolt Bill Bailey. But for now, Great Job! Congratulations to Barb Cumm and to the new blood in village hall, Bill “Moose” Misuraca, Keith Mahler, and Joel Coye!

Welcome, Mr Mayor Moose!

Mayor Bruno’s Campaign Letter: Mail Fraud? Official Misconduct?


UPDATE
We have verified that the Bruno letter was processed through the Ravena Post Office and was delivered by U.S.P.S. personnel. We have been informed that several complaints have been sent to the regional postmaster in Albany and to the U.S.P.S. Inspector General for investigation. The NYS Board of Elections has been advised. The Office of the NYS Comptroller has been informed.

Mail Fraud or Official Misconduct?

Mayor John Bruno and his “Colleagues” Martin Case and Rocco Persico need to answer some questions about how a letter to “Occupant” got into Ravena residents’ mailboxes this past week. The letter arrived simply addressed to “Occupant” and had no stamp, no postage paid imprint, and no bulk mail permit imprint. A reliable local source not connected with neither Bruno’s or Misuraça’s campaign confirms the “rumor that the Bruno flyer was inserted in the mailboxes of residents by the mail carrier with no postage and the mail carrier advised that the Mayor had paid the post office.” This allegation has not yet been verified but the source is reliable.

We published the letter and our comments on the letter and you can read about it at Bruno Wants a Fifth “Last and Final” Term.

We’d also like an investigation into where the letter was photocopied and whether village equipment and resources were misused for Bruno’s political campaign. That should be easy enough to prove, Mr Mayor, just produce the receipt from the copying business showing that you paid for the copies and didn’t use village equipment.

If it wasn’t the United States Postal Service mail carrier who put the letters in the Ravena residents’ mailboxes, we’d also like to know who was sneaking along Ravena village streets slipping Bruno’s letter into residents’ mailboxes. Was it a village employee? We want to know!

Either way, there’s something very fishy about Bruno’s letter distribution thing.

The Misuraca campaign did everything by the book. They used stamps or bulk mailing permits, and paid for their copying. No fraud, theft or misconduct there. Just plain honesty and playing by the rules. But we all know that’s not how Mayor Bruno or his “colleagues” Martin Case or Rocco Persico work. Ravena residents, better check your wallets!

Report Fraud, Misconduct!

Report Fraud, Misconduct!

Fraud? Maybe.

Generally speaking, a regular fraud case that would normally be prosecuted by local prosecuting attorneys at the state level can become a federal mail fraud case if the U.S. Postal Service was utilized by the accused defendant to commit the fraud. The U.S. Postal Inspectors are the agency that investigates fraud and other criminal abuse of the U.S. Postal System in furtherance of committing a crime. The mail fraud federal statute is broad based and allows the federal government to prosecute fraud and other types of cases resulting in some instances of sentences of 20 years in federal prison and 30 years in federal prison if a financial institution is the victim of a fraud.

Official Misconduct

Misconduct on the part of U.S. Postal Service employees includes misuse of Postal Service computers, destruction or theft of Postal Service property, falsification of official documents and forgery, theft of funds, abuse of authority, sabotage of operations, narcotics usage or sale of drugs while on duty, and alcohol abuse.

We’ll be contacting the New York State Board of Elections, too, to inform them of this situation and advise them that we are contacting the United States Postal Service Inspector General to request an inquiry and investigation of this incident. We think you should take the same action.
