Changing the Subject for a Moment…Let’s talk about Nancy Warner.

We figure you must be a bit tired of reading about rogue cop s and animal abuse, so we’re going to change the subject for a moment.

Let’s Talk About Nancy Warner and Irresponsibility and Corruption.

Nancy Warner: Lean and Mean behind the Ravena Dem Machine.
(The hill-town version of angry-old-woman Nancy Pelosi)

When we talk about the failure of local government, we cannot avoid thinking of the Village of Ravena, New York, a nest of political incest if there ever was one.

The recent raccoon incident calls to mind Nancy Warner, a trustee, that is, a member of the Ravena Village council, and her history of idiotic pet programs and wasteful agendas. Warner is a relic from the past, from the “Mummy Mayor” era, and has a reputation for being a veritable Witch-on-a-Stick (we all know where the stick is, too). She likes her little coven of idiots; We all know the saying “In the village of the blind the one-eyed man is mayor.” Well in a village of halfwits, the idiot is wannabe mayor.


The Raccoon PETITION got 1.6 million likes on Facebook! As of this writing (March 26, 2018), the “Justice for raccoon killed by officers from Coeymans Police Department in New York Statepetition on Care2 now has 88,060 signatures of which 10,589 are from New York. The goal was 85,000 but the response was so great we’re looking for 90,000 signatures! Express your outrage and add your signature here. Please help get us to the goal of 90,000 protest voices!!!

But let’s get back to the point. The recent raccoon scandal that was perpetrated by two Coeymans police personnel at Ravena’s trashy Faith Plaza, brought to light a number of problems. Of course, the first problem is making sense of how two alleged qualified law enforcement personnel could harass, terrorize and kill (by running it over after some 15 minutes of torturing it) a wild raccoon, and do this in a crowded parking lot to the absolute disgust and horror of dozens of people. The Coeymans police response: ‘They had to use their vehicles to ensure the public’s safety.’ This situation becomes even more bizarre when you think that the scandalous scene was perped not by one idiot in one vehicle, who we then could say was just stupid and have done with it, it was two idiots in two separate vehicles. We’d love to hear the radio exchange between the two morons as they got their perverse rocks off killing the raccoon. That chapter has not yet ended and we’re following it closely.

The trashy Faith Plaza in Ravena. Home of Shop’n Save, CVS, and Dolan’s Choices program. Owned by the “Christian” Aaron Flach family of Ravena.

This all happened because a caller from the Ravena CVS at Faith Plaza noted the raccoon “trying to get into the building.” The conclusion was not that the animal was hungry, curious, but that it had to be “rabid.” A call goes into the Albany County 911 Center, which routes it then to the Coeymans Police and, well, the whole world knows the rest of the story. (For details on how owner of Faith Plaza, Aaron Flach responded, please see the Hudson Valley 360 article, “Petition calls for disciplinary action for raccoon killing,” of March 18, 2018, the updated petition has 83,777 (9,620 in New York) as of March 23, 2018.)

Crandall has been cutting the police budget since day 1 of his taking office

When cornered, Coeymans Town Supervisor, Phil Crandal states that “the call should never have been given to the Coeymans police,” but Mr Crandall doesn’t say to whom the call should have gone. The Coeymans Police Law Enforcement Manual states clearly that animal control calls should go to the Animal Control Officer. The problem is that the Town of Coeymans doesn’t have an Animal Control Officer, and the Manual hasn’t been updated since 1998 (neither have the other chapters in the “Town of Coeymans Police and Village of Ravena Police” Administrative Manual, such as Traffic Operations or Recruitment/Promotion, etc.).Problem is, Crandall has been cutting the police budget since day 1 of his taking office.

The Village of Ravena Abolished its Police Department in 2006

But Ravena does not have a police department, it was abolished in 2006! Here’s the official act abolishing it on January 17, 2006:

Article II:
Abolishment of Police Department
[Adopted 1-17-2006 by L.L. No. 1-2006[1]]
Editor’s Note: This local law also stated that it shall take effect 30 days after its enactment and is subject to permissive referendum. This local law was approved by the majority of the electors voting in the general election held 3-21-2006.
§ 22-6
Department abolished.
The Police Department of the Village of Ravena is hereby abolished.

The reason: to reduce costs involved with the operation of the Ravena Police Department. The result: The Coeymans Police Department took over law enforcement jurisdiction in the territory of the Village of Ravena.

Neither the Village of Ravena nor the Town of Coeymans has an Animal Control Officer

In the meantime, neither the Village of Ravena nor the Town of Coeymans have animal control officers, full-time or part-time. Again, the positions were eliminated for fiscal reasons. Eliminated to save money, that is. But while the Ravena Village Council and the Town of Coeymans are cutting public safety positions to save bucks, the Village of Ravena has no scruples wasting taxpayer dollars to pad the pockets of village “friends.” We’re referring to Nancy Warner’s pet project, the Ravena Fitness Center, for which the village of Ravena shelled out more than $40,000 to village “friend” and insider, Robert “Bob” Fisk — Fisk at the time wasn’t even living in Ravena, he was in Florida! —, for used fitness equipment from his defunct fitness center, previously mismanaged and failed under Guess who? Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca’s partner, Cathy Deluca. Warner promptly handed over the Ravena Fitness Center to none other than fitness-club-failure-expert, Cathy Deluca. In the two years that Deluca ran the Ravena Fitness Center, the Center lost at least $115,000 a year!!! All Ravena taxpayer dollars. Ultimately, the Center failed after a short period of Deluca’s mismanagement. Deluca got paid and Carver Laraway did the village a favor by buying the equipment for pennies on the taxpayer dollar.

Nancy Warner’s Response to Ravena and Coeymans Residents.

We mention the history of the Ravena Fitness Center for two reasons: Nancy Warner’s stupidity and fiscal irresponsibility, and Nancy Warner’s corrupt practices in doing favors for the Ravena Incest Club, friends of the administration. Nancy Warner was also behind the harassment of local youth by the Coeymans Police for hanging around the village gazebo (which has since been removed), and for her involvement with then Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington and Coeymans cop Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca for a number of violations of civil and constitutional protected rights.

And a bit THANK YOU! to Mr LP of Ravena for reminding us that it was at Nancy Warner’s urging that the RCS Community Library was thrown out of the space to make it available for Cathy Deluca’s most recent failure, the Ravena Fitness Center. Not only did Warner urge the Village Board to evict the Community Library, while insiders Persicos were “renovating” the Library’s new digs, Warner actually punished the Community Library for not moving out by raising the Library’s monthly rent!!! Warner raises the Library’s rent and the money comes out of community and children’s programs but that doesn’t matter to someone like Nancy Warner and her pack of flying monkeys! She was sending Darlington, Deluca, and Johnson  of the Coeymans Police Department out to harass the kids on the street, and you think she’d want them to be in a library? That’s not the way she works. Nancy Warner works by screwing the community and taking care of her friends in the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club! Typical of any fascist regime — and fascist is the most accurate description of Warner’s little nest in Village Hall with it’s figure-head mayor, Mouse Misuraca — Nancy Warner has no use for intelligence or education; after all, a stupid population is easier to control than an intelligent one. How quickly we forget, people!

Nancy Warner sending out her Monkey-Pets in the Darlington-Deluca Coeymans PD to harass local youth. One scandal after the other! Does it ever end?

Nancy Warner’s husband Harold “Hal” Warner, a sitting Village justice, is the man behind the backstabbing of then part-time village justice and full-time Coeymans town justice, Phil Crandall, resulting in Crandall’s forced resignation in disgrace from the elected judgeships. Nancy Warner, at the time, “supervised” her own husband’s court operations.

No story about Nancy Warner would be complete without mentioning her pet rodent, Mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca.

The Nancy and Hal Warner are democrats as is Phil Crandall, but given their history, do you wonder that there’s no dialogue and only animosity between The Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans? We tend to think that the two communities,separated only by an immaginary line — they were once a single municipality, Ravena-Coeymans, until divided into the Village of Ravena and the Hamlet of Coeymans — but even so, the Town of Coeymans offices are actually still located in the Village of Ravena, on Russell Avenue! Go figure!!!

Since March 20, 2018, the entire Ravena village board has been packed with Democrats, all under the heavy hand of Nancy Warner; the only Republican on the Ravena village board is Mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, elected by his loyal barroom customers and perhaps a couple of dyed-in-the-wool die-hard Republicans still allowed to live in the Village of Ravena. That probably makes no difference anyway, since Misuraca is totally ineffectual — unless it’s tapping a beer keg or pouring a shot– and Warner ran things anyway, witch that she is.

So, people, what does this mean for the perennial problems plaguing the neighbors Ravena and Coeymans, such as water, sewerage, law enforcement, animal control? Well, the picture ain’t pretty, as you can well imagine. But ask Town Supervisor Phil Crandall and he’ll tell you, “Put that in an email or a letter and get it to me.” That’s where it will die.

With Democraps commandeering both Ravena and Coeymans boards but with the seething and roiling hatred between top elected officials, Warner and Crandall, the residents and taxpayers will continue to be victimized by the self-serving, corrupt and incompetent Village and Town Halls.

The recent raccoon scandal brought the historical scandal to light but this time it came to light on a never-before-experienced scale; this time it’s international.

So Ravena abolishes its police department to save money. Both Ravena and Coeymans abolish animal control to save money. Both law enforcement and animal control are public safety services.But that doesn’t stop Ravena (Warner) or Coeymans (Crandall) from spending on their pet projects!

Ravena, under Warner’s dictatorship, finds the money to fund a Ravena Fitness Center, and to take a load of used fitness equipment off a friend’s — that is, Bob Fisk’s — hands to the tune of more than $40,000. She then hands over a large portion of Ravena Village Hall to her friend Cathy Deluca, and approves a handsome salary for Deluca to manage the facility. Deluca manages the facility over a period of two years right into oblivion, as she had done with two previous fitness clubs she had “managed.” A fine example of local government’s idea of fiscal responsibility, right?

After Nancy Warner’s husband, Hal Warner, forced his fellow justice, Phil Crandall, into disgraced resignation, Crandall, banned forever from running again for judicial office because of his corruption — in which Coeymans board member Tom Dolan and Albnay County legislator, Richard Touchette were recipients — and ethical violations while a judge, now runs for public office, for the office of Coeymans Town Supervisor.

Nancy Warner was/is breast-to-breast, vag-to-vag with Cathy Deluca and Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca

Cathy Deluca
Who does your hair, sistuh?

You’ll need a little background to understand Crandall’s hatred for the Coeymans Police Department and why Crandall did everything possible to drive any competent leadership from the Coeymans Police Department. Crandall’s vendetta has its roots deep in the Warner-Deluca conspiracies. You see, Nancy Warner was/is breast-to-breast, vag-to-vag with Cathy Deluca and Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca, who, in turn were in a love-fest with Gregory “Dumplin” Darlington. When Hal Warner disposed of Crandall, this Warner-Deluca-Darlington love triangle was going full-throttle, until their activities were getting too hot to handle and Darlington and Deluca had to go — either just go, or go to jail. Now that the Delucas and the Darlingtons were sufficiently disgraced and out of the public picture, the scene was set for the Warner-Crandall wars.(It’s also interesting that Carmen Warner was fired from the Albany DA’s office and Leah Darlington left the DA’s office shortly thereafter to take a position as a secretary with Tom Dolan’s Choices program. Was it getting too risky for Albany County DA David Soares to have these liabilities in his office?) Just one more objective was left for Crandall — and he’s very near successful — that is, getting rid of the Coeymans Police Department.

Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca.
Now with the New York State Fire Chiefs Association.

Phil Crandal is a retired prison guard and brings all the charm and refinement of a prison guard personality to Coeymans Town Hall.

But Crandall is no prize when it comes to human relations and fiscal responsibility. First of all, he’s a retired prison guard and brings all the charm and refinement of a prison guard personality to Coeymans Town Hall. Secondly, he’s surrounded himself either with a harem of paid women or a coterie of recycled political losers like Jim Youmans (used car salesman, lost a previous election then ran again under Crandall) and Tom Dolan (director of the Ravena CHOICES program, another political loser). Dolan and Rick Touchette (director of the notorious Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany Cemeteries, and recently “elected” to the Albany County Legislature) were both involved in the corruption and unethical activities that led to Crandall’s disgrace, Touchette and Dolan having received favors from Crandall while he was a judge. Touchette was part of the gang, too.

Crandall likes to hire consultants, clerks and secretaries for the Supervisor’s office

As we noted above, Crandall also likes to cut budgets to pad his office staff. He likes to hire consultants, clerks and secretaries for the Supervisor’s office, but likes to cut police and other budgets to save money (for his projects and friends). When cornered for answers, Crandall’s stock response is “send me an email” or “put that in a letter.”

A Lot of Finger-pointing going on right now in Ravena and Coeymans.

So we now have a scandal built up around the unfortunate fate of a wild raccoon who happened to be in the same space as two rogue Coeymans police idiots. The actors in this comedy of errors happen to be two Coeymans police personnel, admittedly morons, and a raccoon, at the time “presumed” to be a little too curious, a little too friendly, and thus “rabid.” Crandall has his moment pointing the finger at the bad cops and promising an investigation and accountability. Bravo, you stinker! Acting Coeymans Chief of Police, Daniel Contento, asking himself how’d I get into this position and what’s going to happen with my pension? Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca stands back and claims to be an animal lover and not to have any power or authority over the Coeymans Police, uses that simplistic mantra to get his useless ass re-elected. Nancy and Hal Warner are delighting that arch-enemy Phil Crandall has a scandal on his hands — again — and the public’s eye is on him, not on them.

Our burning question is this: Where is the Office of the New York State Comptroller, the Office of the Albany County District Attorney, the Office of the New York State Attorney General, and the FBI while all of this public corruption and abuse of public office is going on in broad daylight and has been going on for decades?

We think it’s high time for a lot of audits, investigations, indictments, prosecutions, and convictions. What do you think?

We’ll be asking similar questions about the New Baltimore town government, the New Baltimore Highway Department, and their ineffective and corrupt operations in an upcoming article. The situation, therefore, doesn’t appear to be isolated only to Ravena and Coeymans; it appears to be contagious, a sort of rabies that infects neighboring local governments like Ravena/Coeymans and New Baltimore. Maybe we can find two morons to run them over, too?

WE REALLY HOPE THE TWO IDIOT COPS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED AND ARE NOT STILL OUT THERE ON OUR STREETS!!!

NEXT STEPS:

RECALL PHIL CRANDALL; REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE
ABOLISH THE COEYMANS POLICE DEPARTMENT
INVESTIGATE NANCY WARNER AND THE RAVENA VILLAGE BOARD
PROSECUTE THE ROGUE COPS
CLEAN UP THE COMMUNITY — CREATE A LOCAL WATCHDOG GROUP
MAKE THE ALBANY COUNTY DA P. DAVID SOARES ACCOUNTABLE

Truth be Told: On the Heels of the Coeymans Town Board Meeting

The Real Hero in this Story!

The Real Truth is that as disgusting, scandalous and disgraceful the raccoon incident is, it has drawn public attention to a more disgraceful and insidious problem in Ravena and Coeymans: the Incompetence of Our Elected Officials and the Apathy of the Local Community.
And we can thank a poor, unfortunate wild animal for drawing the world’s attention to that well-known but concealed fact about our communities!


The PETITION got 1.6 million likes on Facebook! As of this writing (March 25, 2018), the “Justice for raccoon killed by officers from Coeymans Police Department in New York Statepetition on Care2 has 84,832 signatures of which 9,779 are from New York. The goal is 85,000. Express your outrage and add your signature here. Please help get us to the goal of 85,000 protest voices!!!



We suggest you email Town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena Officials to express your outrage:

Town of Coeymans
Philip A. Crandall – Supervisor
James C. Youmans – Council Member
Thomas E. Dolan – Council Member
Daniel D. Baker – Council Member
Kenneth A. Burns – Council Member
Daniel Contento (SGT) – Acting as Chief of Police
Coeymans Police Department – General

Village of Ravena
William “Mouse” Misuraca – Mayor
Nancy J. Warner – Trustee


Truth be told, the  Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans would have an Animal Control Officer if the Ravena Village board and the Coeymans Town Board had not eliminated the position from the Police Department’s budget.

Truth be told, the Town of Coeymans Police Department would have the necessary equipment for animal control incidents if the Coeymans Town Board had not cut funding for the operations of the Coeymans Police Department.

This is a catch pole being used to capture a raccoon.

Truth be told, the Town of Coeymans Police Department would have competent law enforcement personnel if the Coeymans Town Board had not cut funding for the Coeymans Police Department. The people of Coeymans wanted their police department but Coeymans elected officials refused to fund it properly.

Truth be told, the Coeymans Chief of Police, whether permanent or acting, has no authority to tell the Coeymans Town Board to provide what the Department needs. So in all fairness, acting Chief Contento must make do with what scraps Crandall and the Town Board throw him. Contento is an experienced law enforcement professional who does his job and doesn’t get into the political intrigues and infighting. He got stuck with the acting chief position because of his seniority, not because he necessarily wanted it.

Truth be told, if the Coeymans Police Department is a bunch of clowns in Kevlar vest packing guns, it’s because the Coeymans Town Board has decided it wants a bunch of clowns as law enforcement. Let’s face the facts: You can’t attract good people when you can’t offer them attractive incentives. You pay peanuts you get monkeys.

And YES, a couple of immature, unthinking, criminal dung beetles in police uniforms and operating police vehicles harassed, abused, and killed a defenseless wild animal in full view of a horrified public in a busy commercial plaza only to bring down international disgust and scandal on two otherwise backwater hill towns in New York State, Coeymans and Ravena, because their elected officials are incompetent, ignorant and out of control!

The bottom line: Bill “Moose” Misuraca, a bartender, is Mayor of the Village of Ravena, and Phil Crandall, a retired prison guard and disgraced village/town justice, is Coeymans Town Supervisor, because the voters — not necessarily the People — of the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans put them there, together with the other clowns on the Village Board and on the Town Board. The ignorant and misguided voters in Ravena and Coeymans are actually to blame for the dunces they have in their Village and Town Halls. Thank you very much! American democratic process at work…just as it was under Stalin, Hitler, and other dictatorships.

We have to laugh every time a Village or Town board meeting opens with the American secular prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, where, unlike any other civilized country in the world, a bunch of people gather to mouth words like “liberty and justice for all,” knowing full well it’s all a bare-faced lie. And we know it! Ask any honest resident like Daniel Boomer.

Truth be told, many of the statements made by Mr. Phillip Crandall, Town of Coeymans Supervisor, in his public statement made at the Coeymans Town Board public meeting, were a dog and pony act. In fact, his statement made at the public meeting and his statement published on the Town of Coeymans website are not the same!

One statement made by Crandall, in particular, is grossly incorrect: Crandall says:

“There is conflicting and contradictory information about how to respond to wildlife suspected of rabies.”

That is totally not true, and intentionally misleading! There is abundant information available on such sites as the New York State Department of Health, The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), the Centers for Disease Control, and many others. (Click on those links to see the sites.) The information provides coordinated and clear scientific, medical, animal control information accepted as state-of-the-art, and is available to the public — even to Mr. Crandall and the Coeymans Town Board.

Before we launch into the main body of this article, we all should be aware of several important points:

Whatever the Coeymans Police did was the responsibility of the officers involved, and this particular incident should not taint the whole Department. Credit where credit is due and blame where blame is due.

“When Sue McDonough watched the viral video of Coeymans police killing a rabid raccoon last Monday by chasing it down and running over it over with their vehicles, she said she knew the officers were in over their heads — and that there was a better solution.” [Source: Time Union, “Raccoon video prompts call for statewide animal control reform,” March 19, 2018) (Ed. Note: McDonough is a retired State Police Investigator (Troop G) and past president of the State Humane Association.)

Blame: The police personnel involved in the incident, no matter what the “test results” show, had no way of knowing that the raccoon was or was not infected with rabies. Raccoons are incredibly intelligent and very curious. Raccons also get hungry. The raccoon’s behavior, though unusual, was not evidence that the animal was rabid. The police used inappropriate judgment for their inappropriate conduct.

Blame: The police personnel involved in the incident acted like rabid teenagers rather than responsible public servants. They did not use good judgment nor did they employ the least offensive methods to get the job done. Their conduct was disappointing and indicative of characters and mental processes that should not be in law enforcement. Their actions show that they do not have the intelligence or the good judgment to make snap decisions required of competent law enforcement personnel. They must go and be banned from law enforcement. The officers involved must be held accountable under the law just like the rest of us.

Blame: The argument that discharging a fire arm at Faith Plaza is would be unsafe, to be very honest, bullshit. Law enforcement personnel authorized to carry weapons are expertly trained — or they should be — in the use of those weapons and where to point them with expectable results. Law enforcement personnel are expertly trained — or they should be — in management of a crime or incident scene and crowd control. First of all, the police have the authority and power to cordon off the entire area, even to evacuate the area, if necessary. They could have ordered all civilians into the buildings until the animal was under control and contained. Once these and other simple management operations were effected, the animal could have been mercifully, humanely and ethically euthanized by gunshot or other method with dignity and in privacy. Instead, the police personnel involved acted like so many lunatics. They must be held accountable for their poor judgment and their irresponsible behavior; they must go and be banned from law enforcement. The officers involved must be held accountable under the law just like the rest of us.

Blame: Several residents made the very true comment at the Coeymans town board meeting that if anyone other than police had done what the Coeymans police had done, they would have been arrested, arraigned and jailed. Their faces and identification would be plastered all over the media and on public access police blotters. Residents raised the very valid question of Why? the names of the police personnel involved in the incident have not been published and have been kept under wraps? Why are police personnel being given consideration that none of the rest of the community would get? Why are the police getting special treatment in a situation where any of us would be immediately shamed and punished? The names and status of the police personnel involved in the incident at Faith Plaza must be published and made accessible to the public. They are public figures and public servants; the public has a right to know who they are. This, my friends, is a matter of public safety!

Big Time Dem Machine Man. Too cozy?
P. David Soares, Albany Co. DA

Blame: The Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, has been in hiding with regard to this incident. Why hasn’t the Albany County District Attorney come forward with a statement, a report on this incident. Not many citizens are aware of the fact that the DA is the chief law enforcement officer in the county; the police are his responsibility. In fact, Soares, as DA, picks and chooses cases to prosecute, and as a political dog, he’s going to pick and choose the cases that will make him look good with the public and with the police unions. Like so many incidents involving police and law enforcement, this one is in Soares’, court and he’d better play it right. We demand that Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares come forward with a statement on the incident. NOW!

The fish rots from the head down. The leaders are accountable first.

Blame: As we have published in our other articles, the fish rots from the head down. If Coeymans and Ravena don’t have an Animal Control Officer, it’s because the Village and Town boards eliminated the position and the funding for an Animal Control Officer. If the Coeymans Police Department does not have equipment for humane, merciful, and ethical conduct of animal control incidents, it’s because the Ravena Village and the Coeymans Town boards have not allocated funding for such equipment. If the Coeymans Police Department is populated by retarded clowns rather than well-trained, intelligent law enforcement personnel, it’s because the Ravena Village and the Coeymans Town boards have not provided funding for professionals or have hired clowns at professional rates.

Village of Ravena Bartender Mayor Misuraca

Blame: If Ravena Mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca and Coeymans Town Supervisor Phil Crandall don’t talk and don’t communicate, and if their board members have bad relations, then it’s time for new leadership, not voting in known incompetents and expecting competent government. If residents don’t attend Village and Town public meetings, then local residents are accomplices to whatever happens in the Village and Town. If you don’t participate in your local government you share the blame and are to blame for the embarrassment and scandal, the lousy reputation your community has.

Disgraced Judge/Town Supervisor Phil Crandall

Blame: If the Law Enforcement Manual used by the Coeymans Police Department is 20 years old and hasn’t been revised, updated, rewritten, replaced in 20 years, and no one notices that fact, the only conclusion to be drawn is that no one cares to follow the provisions of the manual. Our only conclusion is that the Coeymans chiefs of police and their second-in-command, as well as the rest of the freak show are not using the procedures; if they were being used, someone would certainly notice that they are out of date and do not reflect the current situation at all. This is clear negligence and incompetence. We put the blame on Coeymans law enforcement personnel, especially the Coeymans chiefs of police, and mainly on the Town Supervisor and the Town Board for not funding the Department to meet its needs.

Shame on You! Residents of the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans!

Blame: Residents of the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans who sit home on their fat asses on election day and don’t vote!!! The voters, most of them customers of Mayor Misuraca’s gin mill and bar, and most of them rabid democrats who vote the party not the issues, are to blame. Low voter turnout is the rule not the exception in the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans!

The bottom line: Most, if not all, of the blame for this and other scandalous incidents and the poor quality of life in the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans must be on residents!!! Admit it, you, the community earned the lousy reputation and the shame you experience on a more than regular basis. Yet you, the communities of Ravena and Coeymans, continue to shoot yourselves in the foot by electing clowns to be your village mayor, your town supervisor, your village and town board members.

SHAME ON YOU RAVENA AND COEYMANS RESIDENTS

More on the Coeymans Police Department. Our Recent Investigations.

Ravena Village Elections

A note from the Editor:
Ravena is irrelevant, meaningless, predictable

No. We didn’t publish a word on the Ravena village elections. Why? Because Ravena is irrelevant, meaningless, predictable. We are wasting these few words on a corrupt and dying village, which, if it sunk into the Hudson River this afternoon, would hardly be missed, unless it were because the environment suddenly improved. We felt we had an obligation to those readers who asked Why? we were not following the election campaigns and the elections. Our answer: Ravena simply wasn’t worth our time. But Thank you! for asking. (Besides, the Ravena elections were tainted by the Coeymans police incident. See the Times Union article, Ravena’s rabid raccoon haunts village election” (TU, Tuesday, March 20, 2018).)


The Coeymans Police Department is a Disgrace and Must be Eliminated

Our recent investigations into the operations of the Coeymans Police Department under Phillip Crandall and his cronies on the Coeymans Town Board, as well as the operations of the Town of Coeymans, leave no other conclusion than that both are so incompetently run and the total lack of leadership in both has led once again to a widely published scandal involving the Town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the Village of Ravena. 

ex-Chief (disgraced)
G. “Dumplin” Darlington

Before Chief Patrick McKenna took over the Coeymans Police Department under then Coeymans Town Supervisor Steven Flach, we campaigned to eliminate the Coeymans Police Department. Our reasons were conspicuously clear: The Coeymans Police Deparment under then chief Gregory “Dumpy-Duplin” Darlington and Gerry “Dirty Hands” Deluca and their lackeys was a boys club. There were so many violations of protected constitutional rights and civil rights that we had to pick and choose what we published. Darlington, but especially Deluca and his partner Cathy Deluca, padded their pockets generously, while taking advantage of taxpayers and shady activities for years. Cathy Deluca was incompetent and inept but the Ravena inner circle (led by Ravena village trustee Nancy Warner) handed her the now defunct Ravena Fitness Center, which she promptly ran down the sewers with a record 2 years. Cathy Deluca got her money and the taxpayers of Ravena got their screwing. Darlington’s wife, Leah Darlington, was deeply entrenched in the Democratic machine in Albany, in Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares’ office, as was Ravena village justice Hal Warner’s daughter, Carmen,M. Warner (see our article, “The Warners: A Family Tradition of Misconduct“) until she was fired for unprofessional behavior (posting indecent pictures of herself on Facebook). Leah Darlington found a new home with Tom “Dudley Dumbass” Mumbles Dolan at the Ravena Choices office, and local schyster Michael Biscone hired Carmen, another plastic vulva in his collection of plastic females.

Gerry “Dirty Hands” Deluca, former Coeymans cop.

Ultimately, as the word on the street goes, Darlington and Deluca had to retire or face prosecution. Darlington ended up as a part-time bus driver for the RCS Central School District and part-timed as a doorman at Babcock Funeral Home in Ravena. Deluca weaseled his way into an office at the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs. Seems like the RCS Central School District and Babcock Funeral Home don’t care much who they expose the district’s children or our dead to. The New York State Association of Fire Chiefs is nothing more than a lobby organization, more crooked and corrupt than community oriented, so Deluca found a nice nest of like birds. Cathy Deluca has pretty much disappeared from the public eye, and so the scenery is that much better in the Ravena-Coeymans area.

When Patrick McKenna was brought on board as Coeymans’ chief of police we pointed out his baggage and let him know that we were watching. McKenna proved to be a great leader and made numerous improvements both in the operation of the Coeymans Police Department and in the human resources situation. Coeymans is no place to show leadership; you have to be a rodent to succeed in Coeymans or Ravena. Now that Darlington and Deluca were out of the picture, a real professional was going to make a difference, and McKenna did. He was a professional. He was intelligent. He really cared for the community and showed it.

Disgraced Judge…
Town Supervisor Phil Crandall

When disgraced village justice Phillip Crandall crawled back out of the gutter into the public’s eye and ran for Coeymans Town Supervisor — after he was forbidden to run for judicial office as part of his plea bargain — the scene changed. Crandall wanted control of the Coeymans Police Department and, when he couldn’t get it, he tried every dirty trick in the book to get rid of McKenna.

You will recall that about four years ago, when the question of elimination of the Coeymans PD was hot, the people of Coeymans came out in force and loudly proclaimed that they wanted to keep their police department. Supervisor Flach got rid of Darlington and Deluca, and hired McKenna, a veteran Albany police detective. The people of Coeymans got to keep their police department and got a law enforcement professional to run it. Things started to look real good and the whole scene improved.

To give you an idea of how things improved, during the Darlington-Deluca reign of terror, we were publishing several articles a week on abuses, corruption, violations of rights of local Ravena and Coeymans residents. In the 4 years of McKenna, we published perhaps 2 or 3 articles reporting problems, but we published several applauding McKenna’s performance as chief.

With disgraced former justice Phil Crandall’s election along with several other bullies, like used car salesman Jim Youmans, to the Coeymans town board, things deteriorated. Crandall redirected police department funding, literally stole budgetary savings made by McKenna and reused them elsewhere in Crandall’s little group of cronies and pets. McKenna sometimes had to resort to using his own money to purchase needed supplies. Enough was enough.

Once McKenna resigned, the Coeymans Police Department started to spiral out of control. Here’s how.

In December 2017, we were contacted by a local resident, who had been stopped by Amanda L. Mueller, daughter of the Mueller who owns Mueller Automotive, in Ravena. Mueller Automotive does all of the automotive work for the Coeymans Police Department and much of the automotive work for the Town of Coeymans. That raised red flags immediately. Conflict of interest.

But that wasn’t all. You see, Amanda Mueller was a trainee in the Coeymans Police Department. She had stopped a resident for a non-working headlight, and accused him of having his high beams on. Well the resident, a professional, attempted to explain to Mueller that he did not have his high beams on; they were his fog lights. Mueller told him that she was going to let him off with a warning but because he had an “attitude”, she was going to give him a ticket. We reported on the incident in detail in our article, “”. (Please click the link to read the article “Coeymans Police Turning Into Coeymans Gestapo Again?“.)

We asked the resident to provide the documents he received from Mueller. We examined the documents, a Simplified Traffic Ticket and a Supporting Deposition, and found numerous errors in both. Mueller couldn’t even get the man’s date of birth right, and that’s a crucial identifier on a ticket. Furthermore, she got the Vehicle and Traffic Law section wrong. Mueller entered a non-working brakes section, a misdemeanor, instead of a non-working headlight, a minor violation!!! And there were several other mistakes in this relatively simple document. (We advised the resident and the Ravena court dismissed ticket rather than try the case.)

Sandy_poseable sex_doll

Hi! My name’s Sandy. Welcome to Biscone Law Firm.I’m plastic and latex.

At the Coeymans Town Board meeting of June 22, 2017, that approved sponsoring Mueller to attend the Zone 5 Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy, Supervisor Crandall noted, “Supervisor Crandall stated that this is a fine move as far as he was concerned. Ms. Mueller is a member of this community and her parents are upstanding members of this community.” Mueller accepted the training approved by the Coeymans town board and started the academy on July 16, 2017. By January 2018, Amanda Mueller had left the Coeymans PD — after having finished her training — deserting the Town and the Coeymans PD to go to the Albany County Sheriff”s Department. “A member of the community” and “upstanding members”, so much so that her thanks to Coeymans was to leave. Good riddance to local rubbish.

We didn’t waste time and we immediately initiated an investigation and demanded that the Town of Coeymans Police Department and the Town of Coeymans produce certain documents relating to the incident, the operations of the Coeymans PD, and the purchasing practices of the Town of Coeymans, expecting to find numerous violations of policy, procedure and law.

Coeymans never disappoints us. Or maybe the real question is whether the Democrats in Albany County should all be convicted and jailed. All of the perps in this horror story are Democraps!!! Just a coïncidence? Yeah! And maybe 60 years of Democrat Machine Control in Albany is just a coïncidence, too? Do you want to buy a bridge? We’ve got one for sale in Brooklyn.

Big Time Dem Machine Man. Too cozy?
P. David Soares, Albany Co. DA

As soon as we launched the investigation, Amanda L. Mueller disappears from sight. In response to a demand for disclosure, it appears that after we launched the investigation, someone thought it best not to hire her to the Coeymans PD, and she left to take a position with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. That figures; we weren’t surprised in the least. After all, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department is part of the Albany County Democrat Machine, including the Albany County District Attorney’s Office (P. David Soares), all of whom, historically, have been in the same bed as the local Dems and their little nest of scoundrels, including the Gregory and Leah Darlington, Gerry and Cathy Deluca, Tom Dolan (Coeymans town board member and director of Ravena Choices program), and the Phil Crandall (disgraced former Ravena village justice, now Coeymans Town Supervisor), and the Warners of Ravena Village Hall (Nancy Warner and hubby Hal Warner). Let’s not forget that Hal Warner was an Albany cop who got taken off the street and given a desk job for civil rights abuses; he was later elected as a village justice in Ravena. It was Hal Warner who stabbed his colleague, then part-time village justice while also Coeymans town justice, Phil Crandall in the back when Crandall was doing favors for local Dems like Tom Dolan, Richard Touchette (Director of the Albany County Roman Catholic Diocese Cemeteries and elected two years ago to be on the Albany County Legislature. Surprised? Shouldn’t be; Albany County Dems in action!) and others, leading to the investigation by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct that forced Crandall to resign as village justice and, as a condition, to never run for judicial office again. Instead, Crandall ran for Coeymans Town Supervisor under the Dems, and is now Town Supervisor. Go figure!

Have the Coeymans Police turned red-bra ho’s?

Well, once the connections were made between Coeymans, Amanda Mueller, and Mueller Automotive, the cat hit the fan and Amanda Mueller disappears from Coeymans. Chief McKenna also has had enough and he resigns. Now we’re left with an underfunded Police Department and no professional chief to lead it. Somehow Daniel Contento, a Coeymans police sergeant, is appointed acting chief. This is where the Coeymans PD goes into a dead-man’s spiral into oblivion.

On March 12, 2018, an international scandal haunts the Town of Coeymans and the Village of Ravena, when two Coeymans police vehicles are videoed in the act of harassing, terrorizing and finally running over a defenseless raccoon in the public parking lot of Faith Plaza in Ravena. The video goes viral and causes an international uproar, national and international media carry the story, the video gets millions of hits on social media, petitions in protest get tens of thousands of signatures almost overnight. (For details, please see our article at “We are speechless! OMG! Coeymans Police Caught on Video Again!”.)

Again, we launch an investigation. And again, we find that the Town of Coeymans has egg on their faces.

Town of Coeymans Police Department’s Law Enforcement Manual has never been updated since 1998

As in the case of the Amanda Mueller investigation, we found that the Town of Coeymans Police Department’s Law Enforcement Manual has never been updated since 1998; the procedures are 20 years old!!!

The procedures also contain outdated or incorrect information. Even if Coeymans police complied with the procedures and policies, they would be 20 years behind the times. For example, the Law Enforcement Manual title actually reads “Town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena Police.” The Village police department has been out of existence for a number of years, at least ten years.

The procedures also require that in an animal control action, the local Animal Control Officer be called to the scene to manage the situation. Coeymans doesn’t have an animal control officer and hasn’t had one for years!

Our investigation turned up a large number of errors, inconsistencies, even lies in the documents provided by the Coeymans Police Department and the Town of Coeymans. Regrettably, we have to say that this wasn’t unexpected.

Is the Department of Health Report jerry rigged?

Even the New York State Department of Health testing report read like a scripted response to provide the inept Coeymans police with at least a dumbass alibi or excuse for their scandalous behavior. (Please see our article, “Follow-up Report: Coeymans Raccoon Incident. We still have our doubts!” for details.)

The People of the Town of Coeymans wanted, insisted that they keep their Coeymans Police Department, and a responsive Supervisor Steven Flach let them have their police department, got rid of the criminals running it, and hired a professional law enforcement expert, Peter J. McKenna, who did great things for the Department and for the community.

Phil Crandall was booted from the courts and got himself elected as a Democrat to be Coeymans Town Supervisor and things started downhill to hell in a handbasket. He diverted (stole) money that was generated by McKenna, and Crandall used it elsewhere. Crandall and his board cut funding for the Police Department, and took other steps to make life unpleasant for Chief McKenna. Finally, McKenna, not needing the job, had enough and resigned. Crandall and his cronies got their way, and the Coeymans Police Department, now without leadership, spun out of control first with Amanda Mueller’s antics and then with the killer cops at Faith Plaza.

We now have to resume our campaign for elimination of the Coeymans Police Department, thanks to Mr. Crandall and his dumbass clowns on the Coeymans Town Board. Coeymans wanted their police department and also wanted Crandall; one had to go. The wrong one went. It’s obvious that if the People of Coeymans want a Coeymans Police Department, their elected officials like Phil Crandall have to provide the funding for it. Crandall did his best to unfund the Coeymans Police Department into the ground!!!

If Ravena has lapsed into irrelevance, Coeymans is running close behind. The events of 4 or five years ago are starting to pale in comparison to the devastation we are seeing in the village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans. Corruption, incompetence, loss of businesses, deteriorating infrastructure, plummeting quality of life in all respects, and the crooks seem to stay in office. Is this American democracy at work? Maybe. But local residents are to blame; local residents are the only ones who can change the situation.

Finally, we would like to share this from a resident in New Baltimore:

For several weeks now, around noontime or early afternoon, I’ve been driving on Route 144 in the Town of New Baltimore and noticed a Town of Coeymans Police cruiser heading South on 144, in the Town of New Baltimore (Greene County). I found that a bit unusual, since Coeymans is in Albany County, and the Coeymans police would have no business patrolling in New Baltimore, in Greene County. The first couple of sightings made me just curious but then I became suspicious. The Coeymans Police have no business in New Baltimore, at least not that much that frequently. The other day I decided to follow the Coeymans police cruiser and find out where it was heading. Perhaps the NB Town Hall for a court case? But it was not a court day. Anyway, I followed the cruiser and it turned into a residential driveway and stopped, the driver exiting and moving towards the double-wide trailer. I went a bit farther and turned around. When I got to the location, I stopped took down the car number and got a good look at the woman and the patrolman standing on the porch chatting. The car was 926. Can you find out what it’s doing in the Town of New Baltimore? It’s not official business, that’s obvious. Is it misuse of a police vehicle for private visits?” [Name withheld on request.]

We have in the past asked for Coeymans Police vehicle assignment sheets and were told that there were no such documents. Does that mean that no one knows who is driving the vehicles? That’s pure rubbish from a number of standpoints. But it wouldn’t surprise us in the least; after all it’s the Town of Coeymans.

But we do have some questions and we do want an answer: Who is driving the Coeymans Police Department cruiser No. 926 into the Town of New Baltimore in Greene County? What is the official busness being taken care of at the trailer on Route 144 in the Town of New Baltimore?

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!!!

News in Briefs: What does this tell you?

This is a story where we’ll let the pictures do all the talking!

UPDATE: Since this article was posted, the Bruno group has attempted to paint over the “ASS H…” on the sign. I hasn’t worked. You can still read it. Sorry, Joe. Just like your ticket, usless!

news-in-briefs

Do We really have to fill in the blank for you?

Do We really have to fill in the blank for you?

While we do not condone campaign sign vandalism, one Ravena resident was very clear in his/her opinion of the Bruno-Persico-Case ticket! (Can you fill in the missing letters?)

Bruno-Case-Persico campaign signs peppering (just lightly, though) Ravena tell voters to “Vote Row A“. Any ideas what the “A” stands for? (Hint: Please refer to the sign on the left.)

Here’s the clincher: both of these signs, including the “annotated” one, are on the corner of Russell Avenue and Main Street in Ravena, within a couple of hundred feet of the Coeymans police station in Coeymans town hall! What does that tell you about the efficiency and attention level of Coeymans’ finest? Answer: DUH!!!!

Seems Ravena Mayor John Bruno and his flying monkeys can monitor and videotape everying going on in and around the Ravena village offices but can’t keep factual comments off of their campaign signs. Same is true of Coeymans police chief Gregory “DoDo Cop” Darlington, who has cameras everywhere in and around Coeymans town hall but can’t prevent vandalism a couple of feet down the street! What a bunch of clowns!

CLOWNS SAY: VOTE ROW "A"/

ONLY CLOWNS SAY:
VOTE ROW “A”

Well, it doesn’t get much better than this!

Why try to make a turd shine?
This won’t work on Jerry, no matter how hard the Ravena News Herald tries!

The Ravena News Herald Does it Again!
Bryan Rowzee, local kiss-ass scriptwriter for the Ravena News Herald, manages to make shite shine in his recent front-page article “Retiring veteran officer DeLuca looks back on 32 years on the force.”

We are still having humongous problems with Dirty-Hands Jerry’s claim to have been on the Coeymans police force for 32 years. Our concerns—NO! Our suspicions—are based on Deluca’s published résumé on LinkedIn (which appears to have been recently updated), and simple math. We’re also wondering about Deluca’s ability to be in so many places at the same time and doing so many things in a limited period of time, while still being an active member of a law enforcement entity.

And sock-puppet Bryan Rowzee doesn’t account for the gap in Deluca’s law-enforcement career that was allegedly at least 2-4 years, when—you all remember this—then police chief Scott Giroux cleaned up the Coeymans police department by firing Deluca and several others. Deluca was later re-hired—and we question the legality of that rehire in terms of civil service law—by his buddy Gregory Darlington, when the mistake was made by then Coeymans town supervisor Ron Houghtaling to put Darlington in the police chief’s office.

And why doesn’t Bryan Rowzee of the Ravena News Herald pick up on Deluca’s many claims of employment with so many other employers? Would that perk up the community’s ears and raise some eyebrows regarding the legitimacy of Deluca’s claim to be “looking back 32 years on the force”?  

Here’s what Deluca puts on his online résumé (or have a look for yourself. Just click here: Deluca’s LinkedIn Résumé):

In the “Summary” Deluca writes:

“I have 30 years experience working with and for the NYS Legislature and Government.
I have also been a police officer for the Town of Coeymans since 1982
Specialties:Legislative and Transportation Issues”

Wow! Jerry! How did Rowzee miss the 30 years “working with and for the NYS Legislature and Government” part that apparently ran concurrently with the claimed 32 years on the Coeymans police force? And how did Rowzee miss Deluca’s claim to be a specialist in “Legislative and Transportation Issues”? How did we in the community miss these “brilliant” credentials in a man making barely $31,000 as an investigator on the Coeymans police force (source: SeeThroughNY, 2013 Salaries)!

That’s not all. Deluca then goes on to write about his “Experience,” and this is where it gets really interesting—OOPS! Did we write “interesting,” we meant suspicious:

Proprietor
DeLuca Public Affairs
October 2005 – Present (8 years 5 months)
DeLuca Public Affairs is a firm specializing in Government Relations and Association Management

Director
Main Street Small Business Coalition
September 2005 – Present (8 years 6 months)

Investigator
Town of Coeymans Police Department
February 1982 – Present (32 years 1 month) (This is how we know Deluca updated this résumé)

Director
MSSBC
January 2009 – December 2012 (4 years)
As Executive Director of the ARANY, I served as one o the Directors of the Main Street Small Business
Coalition.

Executive Director
ARANY
September 2005 – December 2012 (7 years 4 months)
ARANY is a statewide trade association representing the Auto Dismantling Industry in New York State.
The ARANY contracted with DeLuca Public Affairs for me to serve as their Executive Director and
Lobbyist. During that time I oversaw all operations of the association, including working with the board,
managing a statewide trade show, financial management and serving on and Chairing committees for
the national association

Legislative Associate
New York State Assembly
1980 – 1993 (13 years)
[Editor’s Note: In response to our inquiries, the NYS Assembly has no knowledge of Deluca or his claim to be a legislative associate. Of course, if Mr Deluca can provide hard proof of such activity, we’ll be happy to correct the information, and share it with the NYS Assembly.]

We’re just wondering if Mr Deluca’s connections with ARANY, the special-interest, lobbying organization, Automotive Recyclers Association of New York, might not have some connection with the scrap business plans in Coeymans? How does Deluca’s law enforcement activity tie in with this lobbying, special interest group? Did Deluca’s position as executive director of ARANY have any impact on Deluca’s performance as a law enforcement officer? Like did he show preferences or favoritism in criminal investigations? Or bias or prejudice? What are his connections with land use and zoning in the town of Coeymans? Is there public corruption here?

The Hippo

The Hippo

Now, all joking aside: If you were an employer looking at this slug’s résumé, wouldn’t you have just a few questions about all of these “employments”? Wouldn’t you have a very well-founded suspicion of some sort of fraud or at least misrepresentation going on here? Well, we do. Especially when Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca is resigning/retiring and will be expecting to cash in on 32 years on the Coeymans police force! That means a check every month coming from the public’s cashbox!

Jerry Deluca Mugshot

Jerry Deluca Mugshot
A face you can really trust

We say: Before Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca gets a single penny or cashes a single check, the New York State Civil Service Department has to clarify some small details like: How did Mr Deluca manage to hold down so many positions while on the Coeymans police force? How many of those positions and activities claimed by Mr Deluca constituted illegal or unethical conflicts of interest with his law enforcement activities? How did those activities play into Deluca’s performance as a police officer and crime investigator? In short, how can Mr Deluca reconcile his claims regarding “experience” and the many positions he has held up to the “present” or up to “2012” as claimed in his résumé?

We’d like to know what Deluca’s connections are in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the DEC, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and Deluca’s other extracurricular connections have to do with local land-grabbing, zoning changes, misuse of public office and insider activities resulting in personal enrichment.

We’d like to know why Bryan Rowzee has skimmed over all of this and, in addition, fails to mention the obstruction of justice involving Deluca and his wife Cathy Deluca and the complaints against her that were filed with the Coeymans police department and got swept under the table there. What about the Notices of Claims against Mr and Mrs Deluca?

Why haven’t we heard about Mr Deluca’s harassment of a local woman at a RCS CSD school board meeting—a crime perpetrated together with Guess who? Mr Matthew Miller, teacher NYSUT representative at the RCS CSD—We might want to ask Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington and Mr Bryan Rowzee where that investigation went. It’s not only a civil investigation but a criminal investigation that, once reported, must be investigated. How about that Mr Darlington, Mr Rowzee?

And we won’t even mention the fine moral and ethical example set by Mr Gerald Deluca, a so-called “father figure” (at least according to the pervert Town of Coeymans board member Ken Burns), when he violated Church (Deluca is a parishioner at Ravena’s RC Church of St Patrick and also a “reader” there) and  New York State Law on adultery, while allegedly serving on the Coeymans police force, with the current Mrs Deluca. How about that, Jerry, Greg, Bryan? Here’s the law, if you need a reminder:

Section 255.17 of the state penal law states, “A person is guilty of adultery when he engages in sexual intercourse with another person at a time when he has a living spouse, or the other person has a living spouse. Adultery is a class B misdemeanor.” A class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $500 fine.

In fact, we think that the Town of Coeymans has a lot of explaining to do about those very questions we raise above, and many more regarding Deluca’s claims and the operations of the Coeymans police department under Mr Gregory Darlington & friends. The New York State Office of the Comptroller, the New York State Department of Civil Service, and the New York State Attorney General’s Office need to have a very close look at Mr Deluca’s claims and the operation of the Coeymans police department. This might just be the tip of a very, very large, dangerous, criminal, corrupt and expensive iceberg!

In the end, though, we would like to sincerely wish Mr Deluca a very happy retirement elsewhere, like in Florida, where Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Blitz-Blond Cathy Deluca—if she can tear herself away from her health and fitness empire—could continue in the public’s eye in Orlando, Florida, at SeaWorld, where Dirty-Hands Jerry and Cathy could put on a hippo and manatee show; Jerry could be the hippo and Cathy could play the manatee. Now there’s a plan!

Secrets that you won’t get in the Ravena News Herald of the Johnson Newspaper Group or the Albany Times Union of the Hearst Corporation…

This blog has been doing a lot of work uncovering the secrets that you won’t get in the Ravena News Herald of the Johnson Newspaper Group or the Albany Times Union of the Hearst Corporation, or in any of the “owned” sock-puppet media controlled in Albany and Greene Counties. The voting public, the local taxpayers, our elected officials have to take a stand against corruption in government. That’s why YOU need to demand accountability and transparency! YOU need to demand investigation of situations like this one by the state and local agencies responsible for keeping government honest and prosecuting public corruption! YOU need to call the Town of Coeymans supervisor and Town of Coeymans board members, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany Times Union and the New York State offices and federal agencies responsible for investigating public corruption. If Deluca’s clean, only an investigation will prove that to the public’s satisfaction. But the process must be honest, complete and public!
