Well, you can’t say he wasn’t warned that his ball-less administration would get creamed sooner or later. Seems that Ravena mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca has pissed off Ravena residents to the extent that at least one of them is ready not only to come out swinging but also ready to pony up some money to have bumper stickers made up and posted all over town. Seems like some Ravena residents feel its time to
Now what could possibly have caused all of this?
Could it be the fact that well into his first year of being mayor he still hasn’t cleaned up Ravena village hall? That the vermin left over from Ravena “Mummy” mayor John Bruno are still slithering around village hall giving Ravena residents pains in the neck when asked to do their jobs? We still see that witch-on-a-stick Nancy Warner still giving orders and calling the shots in village Hall. And we still see Bill “Mumbles” Bailey dithering about trying to put together a coherent sentence. But that couldn’t be it, could it?
He’s already a one-termer if Ravena residents know what’s good for them. Unless Misuraca can hand out enough free drinks to his bar-flies to muster up enough votes for a second term but we don’t think that’s going to work, either. He’s already dead in the water in political terms.
Or could it be that after two years mayor “Mouse” Misuraca is still kissing Cathy Deluca’s ass as she waddles around the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center. That dump has cost village of Ravena taxpayers a bundle and the only one making any money on it is Cathy Deluca. But that doesn’t seem to faze Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca, because he and his village board, including the two dolts that were elected along with him, Joel Coye and Keith Mahler, had the majority and the authority to dissolve the Fatness Center and fire Deluca almost two years ago. Yes, people, they had the majority and the authority but they didn’t have the balls. So there you have your Ravena government: a “Mouse” mayor Misuraca, two useless widgets, Joel Coye and Keith Mahler, and two leftovers from the Bruno tyrany, Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey. Could it get any worse?
Yes, it can get worse. You see, you have another village idiot who is running the Ravena highway department, former “firebug” Henry Traver, who narrowly missed a felony charge when he burned his own house down, had to resign from Coeymans, but got hired by Ravena. If that’s not bad enough, that pile of steaming dung is raping Ravena for more than $50,000 a year plus benes while standing around playing pocket pool or driving around in circles. Could it be that the village of Ravena has given that accident-looking-for-a-place-to-happen a more than 20% raise in pay?!?!? In one fell swoop, the village of Ravena village board under Misuraca has approved an $11,000 pay increase for Traver bringing his salary to more than $60,000 a year. For what? How dare they show such fiscal irresponsibility!!!!
Or is it the fact that they re-appointed two dunces who are good puppets and can take orders from Nancy Warner, violating the law, delaying responses to residents’ inquiries and problems, turning a blind eye to anything Warner doesn’t want to see. Yes, we’re talking about the reappointment of Bruno Bimbo Babes, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki. You’d have to admit that with Nancy Warner still in village Hall that Annette Demitraszek is virtually guaranteed reappointment; Warner and Demitraszek are bosom bimbos, you know.After all, why would you risk bringing someone on board who could think, who had a brain, who had morals and ethics. That wouldn’t make Ravena sense. Keep the two puppets; after all, they’ve proved loyal and obey orders. Why take the risk of getting someone who has any integrity. Why would you want to do that “Mouse” Misuraca, Nancy Warner?
Or could it be the unlawful and unethical billing practices for sewer and water? Nah! That couldn’t be it. Could it? The list could go on and on but Ravena residents know all about it. So why bother. Goose the moose!
The Editor: Hey! Mayor Misuraca, open your ryes and look around you. The perps are right under your dumbass nose!
Editor’s Note: Way back when Mr Misuraca was first elected, we strongly urged him to clean out village Hall. We strongly urged that he sterilize village Hall and get rid of all the scum of the previous Bruno administration. As for those whom he couldn’t outright push out the door he had to marginalize, had to make invisible by pushing them into a corner until the electorate could finish them off. Did Misuraca follow that advice? No! And now he’s suffering for it. Our suspicion is this: Mr Misuraca need look no further than right in his own village offices for the culprit behind the bumper stickers. We think Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca are behind it. Why? Because Nancy Warner pushed for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Nancy Warner was constantly defending the Fatness Center and her girlfriend Cathy Deluca. Cathy Deluca stands to loose more than just a job and more than $30,000/year plus benefits. Now that the Fatness Center is no longer funded she stands to lose face, to admit she’s a failure and a crook. All of her little entourage, too, will look like asses now that they’ve come out publicly defending the Fatness Center for their girlfriend. That’s where you have to look Mr Misuraca, is right under your nose! Those bumper stickers had to be printed somewhere commercial. Find that printer and you’ll find who ordered them. Then it’s one short step to finding out who orchestrated this failed coup d’etat against you. All you have to do when you go to your office is look around you, and you’ll see your worst detractors, your real enemies.
Actually, Mr Misuraca, sending out village employees to remove the bumper stickers may be interpreted as using village resources and staff to suppress free speech, a crime against protected civil/constitutional rights. Did you consult with your incompetent village lawyer before using village resources for personal work or to protect your name?
Of course, we’d be the last ones to advocate curbing free speech, and we do advocate preventing criminal behavior, both your own and that of your so-called coworkers. The posting of the the bumper stickers on public property and on traffic safety signs can be prosecuted as malicious mischief, vandalism, and is criminal conduct. If the posting were done on private property without permission it could be prosecuted as trespassing and vandalism. This is where the Coeymans Police Department and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department must be called in. To let this criminal conduct go uninvestigated and unpunished is a violation of your oath and your duties and responsibilities as mayor of this communityI
Just think back what Nancy Warner, John Bruno, “Dirty-hands” Jerry Deluca, and Gregory “Dumplin'” Darlington did to Ravena youth for much, much less! Don’t you think that Ms Warner and Deluca’s mob should be treated likewise, at the very least?
Allegations of Sexual Harassment and Unfair Labor Practices Levied against
Jerry Perrine. Will the victims come forward, please?
Maybe it’s the new scandal that’s coming to light with Jerry Perrine and his conspiracy with Laverne “Larry” Conrad, former planning officer, now code enforcement officer, for the town of Coeymans. They have a bizarre habit of violating every environmental law on the books when it suits them but won’t hesitate for a minute to harass anyone who dares upstage them when it comes to lawfully, we repeat, lawfully, acquiring property — rather, grabbing, stealing land and violating environmental laws — in the town of Coeymans or the village of Ravena. But we will be publishing information that will put ca-bong on that little insider racket for good! Maybe Larry Conrad and his cronies thought that burying creeks on Camille Drive would not come back to haunt them. Wrong! So they better not start to thinking that Perrine’s appliance graveyard is not going to cause a few eyebrows to raise and some eyeballs to pop! Perrine’s appliance graveyard under the property now housing the liquor store and other units, which by the way appear to be getting some special treatment in Coeymans town hall with regard to assessments, utilities, and code favors, is soon to blow up in his greedy fat chops. And whats the connection between what we’ve leaked so far and the break-in at his not-so-happy neighbor’s insurance offices? Could there be a connection? Could it be retaliation for talking to the wrong people?
Maybe, for starters, we should interview some of Jerry Perrine’s ex-employees to find out how he treats his employees. Perrine’s allegedly a bit loose with his female employees, and we’re wondering when we can get them to file sexual harassment charges against him. There are also allegations of unfair practices regarding wages and hours; doesn’t Jerry Perrine have enough that he doesn’t have to stiff his employees for wages and time? Again, those are just allegations, rumors, if you prefer, but where there’s smoke there’s likely fire. But a man who is so disliked in the community, you’d think he’d tread softly, at least to avoid drawing attention to his scandalous behavior.
We don’t want them to resign; they’d still be able to collect their ill-gained pensions. Right “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca? Right Gregory “Dumplin'” Darlington? And then they’d go out and get another job while collecting their ill-gotten pensions. Bad idea! We want convictions for their crimes; that way, they’d lose their pensions and have to take that second job. Seems some residents in the village of Ravena are finally catching on. But forget the “goose,” get the noose!
We motivated Ravena residents to get rid of 25-years of tyranny and oppression and voters dumped mummy-mayor John Bruno. What they got was a ball-less windbag bartender, Bill “Mouse” Misuraca. We’re not saying that was a bad move. After all what was the choice voters had. Now Ravena residents are finding that mayor Misuraca is more of a “Mouse” than a “Moose” and they’re preparing to give him the “goose,” and maybe the noose. We say Bravo! Your mayor may not have balls, Ravena, but Ravena residents are growing a pair. A big pair!
Editor’s Note: We’d like to ask Albany District Attorney P. David Soares where he’s been on all of this. His office spends a lot of time on this blog so we know he or someone in his office is monitoring everything we write. Soares seems to be keeping a very low profile on the corruption and lawbreaking that has been going on in Ravena-Coeymans. Don’t you wonder Who’s keeping Soares in Thunderbird and cigars? Who it is who’s paying for his whoring and his campaigns? Time to find out.
Recent Burglaries in the Town of Coeymans are being Hushed!
Speaking of law enforcement, we’re wondering why the recent burglaries at Tracey Welding, Ravena Welding and Armored Insurance, all in the town of Coeymans, are being kept so hushed? Why is law enforcement keeping the lid on incidents that are of concern to us all in terms of our safety and well-being. Wouldn’t you think that if burglaries are happening in our community we’d have a right to know? You may want to call the Coeymans Police Department at (518) 756-2059. You may also want to call Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach at (518) 756-6006. And while you’re at it and just for kicks and giggles, give Ravena mayor “Mouse” Misuraca a call; he might even know something about what’s going on in town — but only if Nancy Warner let’s him. Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca’s telephone number is (518) 756-8233. Go ahead! Call him! You deserve a laugh.
