New Baltimore Witches Coven Night Out…and Waste Town Board Time

11 Mar

They Came Out, Parked Their Brooms, and Spewed Venom
(All Scripted and Neatly Printed Out on Three Pages)

The Ringleaders: Arlene McKeon, Diane Lewis, Marjorie Loux All Demon-crats, All Venomous

The Ringleaders:
Arlene McKeon, Diane Lewis,
Marjorie “Mousey” Loux

All Demon-crats, All Venomous

Demon-crats Come Out In Force (All Three or Four of Them):
Nothing Constructive, Just the Usual Threats, Insults, and Mud-slinging

The New Baltimore contingent of the Sisterhood of the Barren Womb, a local chapter of the New Baltimore Demon-cratic Party, represented by ringleaders Diane Lewis, now of the Coxsackie Regional Chamber of Commerce, failing cha[i]rwoman of the almost defunct New Baltimore Democratic Committee, wife and former “confidential secretary” to former New Baltimore supervisor David Lewis (David Lewis has reinvented himself now as a divorce mediator), Arlene McKeon, one of Lewis’ flying monkeys who pollutes the New Baltimore planning board with beetlejuice and extract of toad, and Marjorie Loux, another toadie of the order of flying monkeys, led the coven of local hex-mongers in a typical venomous, ugly, abusive performance at the March 10 public meeting of the New Baltimore town board.

Itchy, Bitchy and Barren The Sisterhood

Itchy, Bitchy and Barren
The Sisterhood

The coven appeared at the New Baltimore town board meeting to express their outrage and sour grapes about the recent announcement of the resignation of controversial New Baltimore town clerk, Janet Brooks, amid allegations of misuse of public office and her opposition to keeping set hours at the Town Clerk’s office. There wasn’t any mention of the fact that Brooks was collecting a full-time salary as town clerk but felt her time was too valuable to keep full-time hours. In fact, Brooks went on the record to say that if she had to keep regular hours, she wanted more money. Brooks was re-elected to be New Baltimore town clerk in November 2014 and at that time she apparently was enjoying very good health; in March, however, after the shite hit the fan and her antics were published, she all of a sudden developed such health problems that she had to resign her position as town clerk, “because of health issues.”

We reported on Brooks’ misuse of her elected office and other issues on this blog. If you’re interested in reading the stories go to New Baltimore: Just a Hint of Corruption?.

The Demon-crats all made their assault on the town board just after  the suggestion of conflict of interest and questionable campaign contributions was published, exposing former New Baltimore town supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke as having accepted campaign contributions from an insurance company competing for the town’s insurance contracts, and sitting town board members Lisa Benway and Chris Norris’ eager recommendation of that same insurer to be awarded the current insurance contracts for the town. We reported on that one, too, at
New Baltimore: Just a Hint of Corruption?.

How dare these political harlots disrupt the public’s business with their post-menopausal rants!

So here you have former town supervisor David Lewis’ wife, Diane Lewis, who in violation of most accepted ethical and professional codes prohibiting employment of relatives (prohibition of certain degrees of kinship), served both as New Baltimore Democratic Party Committee chairperson while at the same, serving as the “confidential secretary” of the then sitting New Baltimore [Democrat] town supervisor, David Lewis, who was also her husband. Now do we want to talk about corruption and conflict of interest? How about crooked politics?

Demoncrat McKeon Please ignore the stubble.

We then had to put up with Arlene McKeon’s bitchy concern with who wears hats, jewelry, and fancy clothes to get attention. Well, we studied the town board’s agenda for the March 10 meeting and that wasn’t on the agenda as far as we could see but Hey! McKeon has been known to inhabit the Twilight Zone (which may be why she’s on the New Baltimore Planning Board: she’s turned New Baltimore into a Twilight Zone!).

When we look around the Town of New Baltimore and see what there is here, we have a good idea of what Diane Lewis is doing on the New Baltimore Demon-cratic Committee and in her position on the board of directors of the Coxsackie Regional Chamber of Commerce. By the way, Chris Norris, you know the board member who likes insurance conflict of interest, also sits on the CoC board with Lewis. Now add to that the demoncrat Arlene McKeon who provides her “expertise” on the New Baltimore Planning Board and it’s a miracle we haven’t slipped into a bottomless sinkhole!

 We really don’t have much to say about Marjorie Loux, except that mousey Marjorie is or was deputy town clerk under Janet Brooks, and now that Janet Brooks has resigned, Loux is interim town clerk until a new town clerk can be elected in November. Do you have any doubts about where mousy Marjorie’s loyalties lie? (Think “pockets”!)

You’d think that People like the Coven, Who Have So Much Dirty Laundry, Would have the good sense to lie low and shut up! But they’ve never been big on brains, just sneaky.

Leave Your Dirty Laundry Home, Girls We're Not Interested!

Leave Your Dirty Laundry Home, Girls
We’re Not Interested!

But the Coven showed their true allegiances and sour grapes when they had to read a letter from former town supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke, you know the Susan K. O’Rorke who is employed by Wright Risk Management (WRM), the parent company of New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal (NYMIR), the insurance company “recommended” by board members Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, and the recipient of campaign contributions from those companies and officers of the law firm of Congdon, Flaherty, O’Callahan, Reid, Donlan, Travis & Fishlinger* (William Fishlinger is the founder of WRM!), and who donated part of the contributions to the New Baltimore Democratic Committee (Diane Lewis). Can you imagine Susan O’Rorke after having been booted out of Town Hall and with her shady history of possible conflicts of interest, actually writing a letter to the New Baltimore Town Board defending controversial Town Clerk Janet Brooks after what we have discovered about them both?!? And then having Diane Lewis, Arlene McKeon, and Marjorie Loux (read O’Rorke’s letter at the meeting) disrupting public business to put on their voodoo performance?!? How dare these political harlots disrupt the public’s business with their menopausal rants!

Another toadie, Sharon Bradbury, a neighbor of Brooks and a Coven member, also praised the crook Brooks.

It seems that Jessica Mosier who used to cover the Town of New Baltimore and who has since been removed (Apparently replaced by Jim Planck. It couldn’t have been because of her biased reporting and coziness with the Coven, could it?), reported in the Daily Mail (a rag owned by the same group, the Johnson Newspaper Group who conveniently forgot to publish the résumés of the candidates who ran against the O’Rorke mob but made damned certain to fill half the Ravena News Herald and Greene County News with the O’Rorke mob’s résumés! The O’Rorke mob lost anyway!). Mosier reported in the Daily Mail that Janet Brooks was resigning because of health issues; now Lewis, McKeon, Loux and the Coven are alleging that she resigned because of a “hostile environment.” Well, if going to work to collect a salary and get benefits, and keeping regular office hours is a “hostile environment”, then the majority of honest working folk in this town and everywhere have it all wrong.

The stupidity of the Lewis-McKeon-Loux statements is this: The Daily Mail article of  March 6, 2014, written by Jim Planck (Columbia-Greene Media) quotes Brooks as “citing ‘careful consideration of (her) health issues'”:

Citing “careful consideration of (her) health issues,” Brooks gave notice that the resignation will take effect in two weeks, on Wednesday, March 19, and told Perales that she was “honored and humbled to have served the residents of the town” for all those years.

And again, in the March 13, 2014, issue of the Ravena News Herald, again in an article by Jim Planck (Columbia-Greene Media), Brooks is again quioted by Planck as resigning citing “health issues.” That’s two published reports by the same author in different newspapers saying the same thing: Brooks herself is saying she’s resigning for health issues.  Furthermore, Planck was present at the March 10, 2014, New Baltimore town board meeting when the Lewis-McKeon-Loux were making their unfounded and unfactual remarks about “hostile environment” but he doesn’t mention a thing about it in his most recent article.  Looks to us like Diane Lewis, Arlene McKeon and Mousey Marjorie have been down at Donovan’s Shady Harbor (the Demoncrats watering hole) sucking up the Long Island teas again (You gals have to get a handle on your drinking habits and a muzzle on your snouts!) The fact is that Brooks resigned in disgrace following exposure of her misuse of her public office as New Baltimore town clerk. Any “health issues” excuse is a smoke screen!

Here, Diane, Arlene, Marjorie, Sharon.  Try this on, should fit.

Here, Diane, Arlene, Marjorie, Sharon.
Try this on, should fit.

The Glaring Point is that Jane Brooks Resigned in Disgrace and Now the Demon-crats are trying to do Damage Control. Diane Lewis and her New Baltimore Democrat Committee are squirming, the Democrats in New Baltimore are enraged, and flailing about like wounded rats!

The New Baltimore Demoncrats' Only Response It's all they know!

The New Baltimore Demoncrats’ Only Response
It’s all they know!

So what is the real story, then? Did the thought of going to work to get paid and keeping regular office hours adversely affect Janet Brooks’ health? Or was it the fact of working full-time hours to collect a full-time salary and benefits create a “hostile environment”? Is the Johnson Newspaper Group’s reporter Jessica Mosier handing us a bucket of crap or does the New Baltimore contingent of the New Baltimore contingent of the Sisterhood of the Barren Womb,, the Coven of Lewis, McKeon, Loux, know the real story?  We think the New Baltimore community has a right to know the real story, don’t you?

The Coven was also upset about a local resident’s letter to the editor, in which the resident complains of obstruction tactics used by, Guess Who? Lisa Benway and Chris Norris on the New Baltimore Town Board. We’ve already reported on that and you can read our report at A New Baltimore Resident’s Letter to the Editor: Benway, Norris Obstructing the Board?

But that’s their idea of using Town government time and resources wisely. That’s their idea of good citizenship. Defend the crooks and abuse the board and other honest residents. It’s the Demon-crat mantra: “Being unstable and bitchy are all part of our mystique!

It’s truly sad that a handful of sour, dour, dingbats can put such a spin on what is factually criminal. But until the residents of New Baltimore and its neighbors can get a handle on the depraved groups like the New Baltimore contingent of the Sisterhood of the Barren Womb and ones like them, we’re going to be subjected to their lies and abuse, all they know how to do. 

It's Truly Sad That We Can't Have Better than Backstabbing in New Baltimore! The Coven Can't Stomach Honesty
