Allegation that New Baltimore Highway Super Helps Employee Avoid Drug Test

Question: Did New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways Denis Jordan Turn a Blind Eye to Drug User Employee?

Time to Wake Up, New Baltimore!
Time to Investigate!


Normally we would not publish a mere allegation sent to one of our contributors but this one is very serious. It concerns the New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways and his poor judgment and misconduct in office. It concerns endangering the public. It concerns putting public property at risk. It concerns helping a drug user evade detection.

Normally we would not publish a handwritten note from an anonymous informer but this one is different. It reports a very serious incident. It reports very serious misconduct. It reports something that is very likely true.

Normally we would not publish something like this about an alleged instance of misconduct by a public employee, an elected official, someone to whom important public works are entrusted. But this time it’s different. It concerns a public employee, an elected official who, like so many in the Capital District of New York, but especially in the Ravena-Coeymans-New Baltimore area, is dishonest, incompetent, and corrupt.


Denis Jordan to employee: “Take two weeks and clean out.”

The allegation is that New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways, Mr Denis Jordan, allowed a New Baltimore Highway Department employee to avoid taking a required drug test so that the employee, who admitted he was taking illicit, illegal drugs, could “clean up.” Jordan allegedly allowed the employee two weeks to clean up and then take the test. In the meantime, the employee was allegedly operating Highway Department trucks on public highways, putting everyone at risk. And Jordan knew this and allowed it. On retesting, the employee failed with high levels of cocaine; he was terminated. Jordan is still employed by the Town of New Baltimore.

What makes this information believable is the fact that the informant knew the contributor’s name and his address! This leads us to believe that the informant is local, and he or she may even be an employee of the Town! In fact, when we compared the postmarks on two pieces of mail, one from the Town of New Baltimore Assessor’s Office and the postmark on the anonymous note, the postmarks were almost identical, except for the dates! They apparently were mailed from the same place. Here’s the actual note our contributor received.


It might be a bit hard to read so we transcribed it for you. Here’s what the author has to say:

“Good day, [name redacted for security]:

“After reading your latest blogs regarding New Baltimore Hwy. Supt. Denis Jordan, I would like to give you some more information to look into.

“Recently a newly hired Town Highway Employee was scheduled to have a required drug test as part of his Employment. The morning of the test, said employee went to the Superintendent [Denis Jordan] and told him he could not be tested because he knew he would not pass. We are told that per the employee handbook, this is refusal to submit to a required [drug] test and the employment of said employee is to be immediately terminated. But instead, Supt. Jordan gave the employee 2 weeks to get clean, and told him he would be retested at the end of two weeks.

“At the end of the two weeks the employee went for testing [deletion] and tested positive for high levels of cocaine, and he was terminated.

“This employee [deletion] operated town equipment and drove town trucks up and down the Highway for 2 weeks under the influence of cocaine. Mr Jordan’s decision put not only the other town employees lives and safety at risk, but also each and every person he passed [deletion] on the highway for those two weeks.

“Had this employee been involved in an accident and injured [deletion] or killed an innocent person, and his blood was tested, it would have put the town of New Baltimore in deep trouble both legally and financially.

“Once again Mr Jordan has no regard for rules and regulations that are put into place.

“Rules are for everyone else but him!!”

Given the information being provided in this letter and the details, we have to admit it is pretty convincing. How would someone make this stuff up? But what is even more interesting is the depth of the details. This informant must be in a position to know these “facts” or someone close to this person is in such a position.

This is very serious, indeed. So serious that we felt we should publish it for the community to be informed of what’s going on in the Town of New Baltimore and its departments. In fact, this is so serious that we now demand an immediate investigation by the Town of New Baltimore Town Board. Furthermore, it is so serious, we demand that the New Baltimore Town Board request Greene County District Attorney Joseph Stanzione to launch an investigation into these allegations of Mr Jordan’s latest misconduct.

“Where there’s so much smoke there has to be a wildfire!”

Two outcomes are possible: Once an investigation is launched and completed, Mr Jordan may be cleared of any wrongdoing. But that’s highly unlikely given his history. On the other hand, once the investigation is launched and completed, and Mr Jordan is found to be guilty of the alleged misconduct, we would then expect that he be immediately removed from office and charged. The list of misconduct is too long to allow Jordan to choose when he goes and then shoot the taxpayers of New Baltimore the ‘bird” as he cashes his unearned pension checks at our expense. We say: “Where there’s so much smoke there has to be a wildfire!”

We have covered a large number of cases where New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways has been shown to be incompetent, unfit for the position he holds, as well as instances of misuse of Town personnel and equipment, violations of the rules governing proper recordkeeping, continuing training, and the list goes on. The burning question is Why has he been allowed by the Town Board to continue his misconduct without having to answer to anyone?

Town of New Baltimore Town Board, Greene County District Attorney Joseph Stanzione: It’s time to get off the pot and do something about this ongoing situation. It’s high time someone started doing their job and clean up the corruption!

If the New Baltimore Town Board doesn’t initiate some official action on this latest report, given the other information that the Town has been provided, we think a referendum should be held to remove all of the useless puppets from Town Hall. We’ll want a town hall meeting to discuss what’s been going on in the Town of New Baltimore and demand that all elected officials b be present to answer questions and to take responsibility. This includes Supervisors past and present, Highway Superintendent and Deputy, Entire Town Board, Town Justices, too! Enough already of the hanky-panky cronyism and the behind the scenes operations called “executive sessions.” We demand accountability and transparency!

Let’s Get Started, New Baltimore!

A Toothless Town Board? New Baltimore Board Works for Hwy Super!

The list of misconduct and abuses grows and grows and grows for Town of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan (D). The New Baltimore Town Board just sit and stare into space, wide-eyed, clueless while Jordan makes threats, harasses residents, creates dangerous hazards, damages private property, causes lawsuits against the Town, and even threatens the Board itself. Why does this craziness continue? why hasn’t the Town Board taken action against Jordan as provided under New York State Law? Politics? Cowardice? Ignorance? Indifference? Maybe a little of each but the incompetence and stupidity is damaging the entire community!

Why doesn’t the New Baltimore Town Board read the writing on the wall?


The entire New Baltimore Town Board met in public session on September 11, 2017. Supervisor Nick Dellisanti, Deputy supervisor Jeff Ruso, board members Shellie vanEtten, Chuck Irving, and Scott Brody were all present. Mr Denis Jordan, the under-fire New Baltimore Highway Superintendent, was sprawled in the last row. Four residents, three of them women, all with complaints against Jordan, were also present.

All four residents have significant claims against the Town of New Baltimore and all the claims are based on Jordan’s abuses, incompetence, and unethical practices. The four appeared at the meeting as a show of solidarity. One of them was to read a public statement into the record demanding answers to explain how Jordan has managed to keep his job while perpetrating all sorts of incompetent and crazy schemes.

We have the text of the resident’s public statement, and we’d like to share it with our readers now:


September 11, 2017

The Town Board of New Baltimore
New Baltimore Town Hall
3809 County Route 51
Hannacroix, New York 12087

Ladies, Gentlemen, Neighbors:

Subject:        Remarks addressed to the Board in Public Session.

I am here this evening to address the New Baltimore Town Board directly and to get answers to the many questions I have placed before the Town over the past year and a half regarding the lamentable performance of the Town of New Baltimore Highway Department under the authority and supervision of Mr Denis Jordan, Town of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent.

The Town of New Baltimore, in addition to the numerous email notifications and photographic documentation I have provided, has made at least one on site inspection visit of New Street, a roadway owned by the Town of New Baltimore, in response to the ongoing problems of runoff water drainage and the failure of the New Baltimore Highway Department to maintain gutters and storm drains. There is an at least six-year record of the incompetent installation of culverts, drains, and ditches and the resulting damage to private property in and around New Street.

In 2016, the town supervisor and deputy supervisor, as well as board member vanEtten personally visited the site of damage to private property. Mr Ruso himself discovered a culvert that was so poorly maintained that one end could not be identified. Two days after that inspection, Mr Dellisanti, Mr Ruso, Mr Jordan and Mr vanWormer were provided with a tour of the New Street and Madison Avenue East problem areas.  Shortly, thereafter, NBHD crews arrived to clear drainage ditches that had not been cleared of debris and vegetation for at least 2-3 years. They proceeded to identify the blind culvert and uncovered a drainage grate from under 2-3 inches of soil. Mr vanWormer remarked that he had no idea the drain was there, and he’d been with the department for at least 17 years. The department dug up the road, replaced the mystery culvert, installed culverts under two residential driveways, and left a so-called catchment hole and several bizarrely crafted storm drains. The runoff drainage problem was not cured.

The drainage problems were not cured and the department managed to create new hazards and aggravate the drainage situation.

In 2017, the town of New Baltimore Highway Department and its contractor Callanan, appeared unannounced and commenced paving operations in the Hamlet of New Baltimore. I personally sought out and questioned Mr vanWormer about what was planned, since residents were not provided with information, and the Town website merely stated that details would be announced; that notice still appeared even after the paving had been started and even after it had been completed.

The most recent operations of the NBHW department can be characterized best by saying it is half-assed done by halfwits! The epitome of jerry rigging.

Not only were the operations on New Street largely unsupervised by the Highway Department, upon arrival on the day New Street was done, I was practically speechless when I returned home at about 3:00 p.m. to find that the roadbed had been raised an average of 8-15 inches, a huge drop prevented one from using the front entrance to my home, another 10”curb made use of the second entrance a significant hazard. There was a raised sloped edge along the street on the East side measuring some 12-15 inches. You could not exit a car at the roadside and safely get out because of the slope and the drop-off.  The road has been substantially narrowed such that when unloading my car another car cannot safely pass by.

The highway department attempted to cure the drop-off to the residential parking areas by dropping crushed stone. That jerry rigged solution has failed because the stone is either compressing or washing away, leaving the dangerous curb exposed again. It’s incredible but the Department on the West side of New Street, right across the street and opposite the No 18 New St. parking area, deposited a blacktop ramp from the roadway onto the lawn of the Arndt property, apparently so that Ms Arndt can drive her car up onto her lawn. Even more bizarrely that ramp actually fills the drainage ditch along the West side of New Street, preventing runoff from draining along the ditch into the drains.

In another incompetent attempt to remedy the hazards caused by the deposition of untold truckloads of blacktop on New Street, the Department had to pour concrete steps supposedly to allow our entrances to be used. The concrete steps were not provided with a foundation and now vegetation is growing from under the steps. No doubt water can seep under the steps and frost will heave them. The concrete or cement mix used is obviously not the correct mix because the edges are already disintegrating, crumbling. At the top of the steps there continues to be a raised hump of approximately 6-8 inches in height, causing a significant hazard of tripping, and which will pose a particular problem in winter with ice and snow buildup. This needs to be corrected.

The Deputy [Highway] superintendent has already commented that the raised, sloped edge of the road will cause a problem when plowing in winter and will complicate snow removal.

In an apparent attempt to cure the raised edge of the roadway at the garage of No. 10, the Department dropped blacktop to form a sloped grade into the driveway. This sloped grade now forms a conspicuous channel along which runoff from the roadway is conducted into the foundations of No. 10 New Street. We continue to use sandbags there.

In short, ladies and gentlemen, not only has the Department created hazard after hazard, they have each time created a new problem.

There is no explanation why truckload upon truckload of blacktop had to be deposited on New Street to the extent of raising the road surface at least 8-10 inches above the pre-paving level! How much has that cost the taxpayers of this Town?


Editor’s Note: By any standard we consulted, the blacktop deposited by Mr Jordan’s contractors, Callanan Industries, should not have exceeded 2-2½ inches maximum. We can only speculate that the reason between 6 and 10 inches of blacktop was dumped on New Street was because Callanan Industries sells blacktop. What was in this excessive use for Mr Jordan, we might well ask?


And where was Mr Jordan when all of this was going on? Well, at 3 p.m. on the day New Street was being literally dumped on, Mr Jordan left early to attend a wake…regrettably not his own.

In the meantime, request after request after request has been brought to the Town to cure the hazards and remove the dangerous situations. The town has shown only indifference, and the incompetence and waste continues.

Rather than respond to residents’ concerns Mr Jordan prefers to harass a local woman property owner because of a privacy fence. Rather than cure the problems and remove the hazards created on New Street and elsewhere, Mr Jordan is off installing culverts on friends’ properties. I have heard of at least two such preferred operations going on in the Town over the past couple of months.

The glaring questions persist: Where is Mr Jordan getting the money to hire his own attorneys when the town has an attorney? Where is Mr Jordan getting the money to hire surveyors to continue his harassment of local property owners. Where is Mr Jordan getting the money to hire Delaware Engineering as consultants to establish that New Baltimore is the only place on Earth were water runs uphill? Where is the accountability? Where is the leadership? Where is the responsibility? Where is Mr Jordan getting the wherewithal to confront this board with his own threats of litigation? What has the board done in response to Mr Jordans now infamous refrain, “Let them sue us!”

Mr Jordan must be made accountable for the untold damage he has done as Superintendent of Highways not only in terms of incompetent roadwork, corrupt contract practices, but also to the trust and confidence of residents in this local government, a town board whose responsibility is to steward the public treasure and to act in good faith and fair play in performing their fiduciary duties to the residents of this town.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr Jordan must be held accountable. Mr Jordan must GO! And he must go NOW!

Need I remind you that this is an election year, and some of you are seeking re-election.  It doesn’t look good.

I am providing a copy of these remarks for the record and ask that the Clerk conform them as part of the record of this September 11, 2017, public regular session of the New Baltimore Town Board.


 


Mr Jordan was re-elected two years ago and won by ONE vote. With the public outcries and public knowledge of Denis Jordan’s years of misconduct and incompetence, waste of taxpayer money, abuse of residents, and his alleged favors being done for “friends” of Denis Jordan by Denis Jordan using Town of New Baltimore resources. Jordan’s neglect of his duties and obligations, his ignorance and incompetence, his questionable contracting procedures, and his refusal to respond to good faith questions posed by residents has been brought to the attention of the New Baltimore Town Board for almost 10 years now, multiple notifications, hundreds of photographs and yet Jordan is still there. Granted, two of the town boards were dominated by Democraps (under supervisors David Louis and Susan O’Rorke) and they wouldn’t lift a finger against their fellow Democrap, Denis Jordan. But now we have a Republican-dominated board and still nothing!!!


Editor’s Note: We have reliable and credible information that Jordan won the last elections by one vote because the Republican and Independent election leaders did not count the absentee votes for that election!!! If that is factually true, someone’s head has to roll. So much for the democratic process and we wonder why people don’t vote.

We have personally inspected the damage and situations described in the resident’s public statement, and we can verify those facts as being true. We have F.O.I.L.ed supporting documents from the Town of New Baltimore and those documents do not paint a pretty picture of the operations of the Highway Department much less of Mr Jordan’s management skills…they’re zilch! We have also spoken to the woman being harassed by Jordan. That woman keeps her property immaculate and takes great pains to keep it beautiful; Mr Jordan made the claims, stating that he had received several complaints about her property but would not say who made the complaints. In fact, he first made the complaints and only afterwards collected any facts. Sounds like harassment, putting the cart before the horse again, Mr Jordan.


We agree with the resident’s public statement and call on the New Baltimore Town Board to commence legal proceedings to remove Denis Jordan from office, to audit his performance and his recent dealings with Callanan and their paving operations in the Hamlet of New Baltimore, and to prosecute Jordan and his accomplices if illegal activity is revealed!

We want justice and compensation for those New Baltimore residents who have been injured by Jordan and his incompetent operations!

This book should be required reading for the Town Board!

Campaign to Remove Denis Jordan from Public Office

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Campaign to Remove from Public Office
Town of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent
Denis Jordan
and to prevent his running for public office in future

We have been informed that there is a campaign being organized by residents and taxpayers of the Town of New Baltimore, County of Greene, New York, to collect and organize information and evidence to be used in support of an action to remove New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways, Denis Jordan.

For some time now Jordan has been the subject of numerous complaints and claims by residents of New Baltimore submitted to the Town Board of the Town of New Baltimore, but to date those complaints and claims have not been organized. This has all changed with some recent developments in the town, where Denis Jordan has finally crossed the line.

 

Taxpayers and Residents of the Town of New Baltimore are up in arms and claiming that Jordan:

  • Has abused and abuses his office and authority

  • Is unqualified and incompetent to hold the office of Town Highway Superintendent

  • Has abused his discretionary authorities as Town Highway Superintendent

  • Has shown special favoritism to select residents while abusing other residents in the context of his public office

  • As the result of the above has wasted public resources and obstructed the operation of good stewardship in New Baltimore Town government

  • Has abused employees of the New Baltimore Highways Department

  • Has exposed the Town of New Baltimore and its residents and taxpayers to unnecessary and burdensome legal actions and lawsuits

  • Causing damage to private property with a wanton indifference, and failure to respond to notifications of dangerous situations

  • Jordan has an established pattern of intimidation and bullying among Highway Department employees

  • Because of all of the above, Mr Jordan has placed the Town of New Baltimore at risk of losing its insurance coverage or being placed in a higher risk classification, which will result in additional expense and even reduced coverage of the Town of New Baltimore.

This list is not complete or exhaustive, since we are now on the track of investigating Mr Jordan and his dealings with local contracting companies, including Callanan Industries, Peckham Materials Corp. companies that have already been associated with Jordan’s questionable practices,  and others, in the public bidding processes, the planning and execution of roadwork, and the estimation of materials used in those projects. The picture is very grim from what we have been able to glean even at short notice. (Editor’s Note:  We’ve requested the bids and the background facts as well as the estimates of materials and the actual materials used by Callanan. We expect to prove serious criminal activity.)

According to informed and reliable sources,  Mr Jordan’s recent escapades and incompetence in conjunction with Callanan Industries’  “successful” but totally botched bid to execute repaving of streets in the Hamlet of New Baltimore, the Highway Department has been deluged with complaints from irate and angry residents complaining of the poor quality or disastrous effects of the work done by Callanan under Mr Jordan’s supervision.

In fact, on Monday, June 26, 2017, when Callanan crews were paving New Street and Madison Avenue, while New Baltimore crews were standing around counting farts on the corner of Madison Avenue and Rt 144, Mr Jordan left early, at around 3:00 p.m., to attend a wake. The wake was for a local but not a relative or close friend of Jordan, which raises the important question of: Couldn’t Jordan have stayed to supervise his contractors work on an important repaving project and stil paid his respects to the family of the deceased? After all, he could have left when the crews left at around 4:30, and had plenty of time to prepare for the wake, which certainly ran until at least 7 p.m. Shows where his priorities are. 

Suspicion was cast on Jordan’s re-election and his win over his former deputy highway superintendent Alan vanWormer; vanWormer lost the election by 1 (ONE!) vote. The election was not contested, which raised suspicions in the New Baltimore community.

We support the residents and taxpayers of New Baltimore in their efforts to clean up local government and to remove corruption, incompetence and crookedness. We urge all of our readers to support those courageous residents and taxpayers seeking to remove Jordan from office and to better local government and quality of life.

I you have any information or a complaint or know of anyone who has information about Jordan or wishes to file a complaint, we are here to assist you. Please contact us directly at rcs.confidential@gmail.com or write to us c/o P.O. Box 422, New Baltimore, New York 12124. All contacts will be strictly confidential and no information identifying you will be shared or published without your express written permission. We also encourage you to leave a comment telling all of our readers about any of your experiences with the New Baltimore Highway Department or Mr Jordan.

Recent roadwork done by Callanan Industries done under t he direct authority and supervision by Mr Jordan has generated a deluge of complaints and general dissatisfaction. According to a well informed and reliable source, the New Baltimore Highway Department has received numerous telephone complaints about the shoddy work done. Rather than call the Highway Department, where it is almost certain that your complaint will be lost in the dust, we recommend you make your complaint known via this blog, and then to write directly to the New Baltimore Town Board. That way you’ll be heard.

Please share this information with your family, friends and neighbors. It’s our duty and obligation to ensure that our New Baltimore community is a model of good government, honest and competent elected officials and public employees, and that our sense of community stands as an example for our surrounding communities. Your contribution to this effort will put all questionable and corrupt elected officials and public employees on notice that we will not tolerate ignorance, indifference, incompetence or dishonesty being paid for with our tax dollars.

Do your part and share what you know!

Coxsackie Dental Arts/Kurt Froehlich on Professional Misconduct Watch List

Wrapping Up 2016

First of all, we’d like to thank our many thousands of readers for their generous moral support over the past couple of years to make the Smalbany blog one of the most-read blogs in the region. If it weren’t for the contributions and leads from our many readers and followers, we wouldn’t be able to bring the news and the truth to so many avid readers. Thank you all! And best wishes for a healthy, prosperous, and happy New Year 2017!

 

Coxsackie Dental Arts, West Coxsakie, and Kurt Froehlich, Dentist

Froehlich posing for his prey.

We have received information that Kurt Froehlich of Coxsackie Dental Arts in West Coxsackie, has been investigated by the New York State Department of Education, Professional Misconduct Enforcement investigation unit, and has been put on a watch list, and will be “in the system” should any further complaints be received about him.

This successful and very happy event is the result of a local resident’s formal complaint filed with the NYSDoE, the state department responsible for licensing professionals and for disciplining misconduct in New York state. We reported on the complaint last year, and followed up with a number of very negative reviews of Coxsackie Dental Arts and Froehlich in our article Fraud, Crook, Liar — Keep Your Mouth Shut When You’re at Coxsackie Dental Arts in which we expose his crooked and sleazy practices aimed at taking advantage of unwary patients.

Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts came to our attention when several local residents contacted this blog with a request to investigate and to expose Froehlich and his unethical practices at Coxsackie Dental Arts. The reports ranged from alleged insurance fraud, to overcharging, to charging for work he did not do, and multiple other abuses. A search of the sites on which patients can rate dentists and physicians revealed a large number of negative comments about Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts. We found that many of the complaints confirmed each other, including the fact that Froehlich charges up to 3x what other local dentists charge for the same work, and bills patients’ insurance even before the work is done, in one case depleting the patient’s insurance coverage while allegedly falsifying the patient’s records. This was discovered by another local dentist consulted by the patient.

Froehlich has a great trick to get into your pockets. First his office manager will hand you a pile of forms to read and sign. So you think they’re the usual benign forms you always get to sign when you go into a medical or dental office. READ THEM AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. You see, Froehlich thinks that if you get handed a ream of paper, you’ll just scan and sign. Most people do. But you must read them because Froehlich or his shyster friend Kinderhook lawyer, James “Pudgey” Kleinbaum (YES! Another JINO!) have concealed in those seemingly innocent forms clauses that make you liable for ANYTHING, even work Froehlich has not done!!! Froehlich and his JINO lawyer recently dragged a local resident into court suing the resident for work that Froehlich claimed he did but didn’t do. The resident even brought in a letter from his usual dentist and dental records clearly showing that Froehlich didn’t do the work. But of course, in Cairo town court and with the likes of Lehland Miller hearing the case — Miller get his instructions from the lawyers appearing before him, doesn’t know shit from Shinola about the law — and so Froehlich’s lawyer told town justice Lehland Miller what to say and what to do, and the stupid hick did as he was told. Meanwhile, Froehlich’s standing there like a mini-Jabba the Hutt lying his way through the proceedings.  Decided against the resident, who was refused his rights to present his evidence. Local justice at its finest!

Lawyer James Kleinbaum (Kinderhook JINO) made up for court.

Oddly enough, Froehlich appears to have recruited a corpselike creature, Bruce Trott, to join the Coxsackie Dental Arts den of thieves. Trott must really need a job badly if he has to practice with the likes of Froehlich!

In our well-founded opinion, Kurt Froehlich and anyone working with him at Coxsackie Dental Arts, should be tarred and feathered and run out of town. Froehlich, a JINO (Jew in name only) is an insult to any ethical Jew and to the dental profession overall. Froehlich needs to leave West Coxsackie and Coxsackie Dental Arts should be avoided like trench mouth!

Froehlich is  apparently creating ratings for himself on the Internet

In our experience, it appears that Froehlich is constantly re-inventing an image on the Internet, and he’s apparently creating ratings for himself and for CDA, in order to counteract the negative image his unethical and crooked business practices have created. He’s really a sleaze and we wouldn’t put anything past that bastard.

As mentioned in our previous article on Coxsackie Dental Arts and Froehlich, Froehlich has a job with a practice in Port Jervis, NY, Aesthetic Family Dentistry (Dr. Seth Horn and Dr. Dide Tosyali, 155 East Main Street, Port Jervis, NY 12771), and he’s there on Fridays, which means he has to close the Coxsackie office on Thursday afternoon. Aesthetic Family Dentistry must be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they need the likes of Froehlich. And if Froehlich’s practice is so great in Coxsackie, why would he need a second job in Port Jervis? Sounds like he’s not doing all that well in Coxsackie for obvious reasons. Check out our article Fraud, Crook, Liar — Keep Your Mouth Shut When You’re at Coxsackie Dental Arts for more information.

If you have had any negative experiences with Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich, please let us know. We acting as the clearing house for complaints against Froehlich and Coxsackie Dental Arts in this area. There are a number of people in our community who have been screwed badly by Froehlich and need your support. Help us to clean up our community and let’s get together to rid our community of the crooks, liars, and frauds. (Let us know if you need help in filing a complaint. We can provide you the name of the investigator and the address for the investigations department.)

Steer Clear of Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich!



Bob Krug’s Barking Dog Nuissance and New Baltimore Town Hall

Bob Krug’s constantly barking dog and the New Baltimore Town Board incompetence

We reported on the problem of National Historic Resident and convicted bank robber Bob Krug’s constantly barking dog and the New Baltimore Town Board incompetence in enforcing New Baltimore Animal Control Law to bring some peace and quiet to residents in the NHD.

We reported that New Baltimore Animal Control Officer Joseph Tanner, holds a full time job with the Department of Transportation, while receiving about $4,000 a year in salary plus mileage, and a cell phone paid for by the town as Animal Control Officer. Our question was how can he enforce town law when he’s miles away. The answer we found when we demanded town records was: HE CAN’T! And he doesn’t.

Definition of Stupidity

Definition of Stupidity

Stupid is Defined, Mr Dellisanti, as doing the same thing over and again and expecting different results!

We demanded that something be done by the Town of New Baltimore to bring peace and quiet to the suffering neighbors in the National Historic District, who have to put up with listening to the barking dog day-in-day-out, sometimes all day long, and even on Saturday and Sunday included. Entertainment provided by Bob and Bonnie Krug and courtesy of the Tow

New Baltimore Supervisor Dellisanti: Nope! No dorgs barking 'ear!

New Baltimore Supervisor Dellisanti: Nope! No dorgs barking ‘ear!
[That’s because all the “dorgs” are in Town Hall!]

n of New Baltimore Animal Control Officer Joe Tanner. So New Baltimore Town Supervisor Nick Dellisanti, feeling a mild surge of testosterone, decided he would man-up and “check out the situation” on his way to do his weekly “park inspections.” Mr Dellisanti reported back to the upset resident that he, Dellisanti, had been by the Krugs several times over the period of several weeks and heard no barking dog. What Mr Dellisanti did not report is that he drove by the Krugs property every Sunday at the very same time in the morning. We all know the definition of STUPID don’t we? (See the Stupid Elf, above.) Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Right? So what do we call Mr Dellisanti who drives by on the same day of the week at the same time and expects to find something different? You guessed it!

We know for a fact and have personally investigated the barking dog kept on Robert and Bonnie Krug’s  property in the National Historic District of New Baltimore, and we have verified by personal visit that the dog is barking almost constantly at any given time of the day, even on Christmas and New Year’s day (both Sundays!). One of Krug’s neighbors stated to us that, “Their dog needs daycare!” If Mr Tanner or Mr Dellisanti had the brains and balls to stop and ask the Krugs’ neighbors about the problem, they might have done the community the service that they are being paid for as town officials. But that might take brains, balls and some effort. They don’t have any of these.

We hope New Baltimore voters remember the names of the town board members who pull this sort of crapola: Dellisanti, Ruso … We’ll be reminding voters before the next elections. We have in the past demanded that Joe Tanner be fired, since he can’t possibly do the job he’s being paid to do. He’s still on the payroll and the dog’s still barking!


New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan: “Let them sue us!”

Late last year, in about October 2015, we started reporting on the New Baltimore Highway Department’s failure to maintain drainage installations in the National Historic District. One resident has been keeping tabs on the Highway Department’s incompetence under the supervision of Mr Denis Jordan for about 6 years, but over that period, despite getting regular reports, complaints, and notices, the Town of New Baltimore did nothing, and Denis Jordan ignored both residents and the town board.

In our article New Baltimore Town Supervisor Dellisanti to Resident: “When does this turn into Harassment?” (published in November 2016), we reported on the residents multiple requests for a traffic cone to mark a dangerous hazard created by Jordan and his circus monkeys on New Street. We also reported on the damage to the foundation of a residential structure caused by Jordan’s failure to maintain storm drains, drainage ditches, and culverts in the National Historic District of New Baltimore. The water draining from the road surface and the overgrown and non-functioning drains caused water to flow into the building’s foundation and the building is now unusable and collapsing. In September 2016, Town Supervisor Dellisanti, Deputy Town Supervisor Ruso, Town Boad Member Shelly vanEtten together with Jordan and his Deputy, Scott vanWormer, participated in a show and tell tour led by a local resident. Two days later, Jordan and his crews were digging up New Street. When asked to stop work to discuss the work and how it was to solve the problems, the resident offered to provide photos and measurements to help solve the problem, Jordan never responded. When pushed by the town board, Jordan responded, “Let them sue us.”

When Deputy Supervisor Jeff Ruso remarked that a culvert seemed to be going nowhere, and the New Baltimore Highway Department Deputy Supervisor, Scott vanWormer and his crew followed the culvert to discover a storm drain buried under several inches of soil, remarked that in some 18 years he never knew that the storm drain (or the culvert) were there! Wonder why there’s a drainage problem? Says a lot, too, for the Town of New Baltimore Highway Department meeting it’s maintenance responsibilities under the law. Actually, the New Baltimore Town Board could get rid of that imbecile Denis Jordan but they don’t have the cojones or the political guts to do that. Instead, they’ll let him waste taxpayer money, cause as much damage as he can, then he can retire and collect a hefty pension. Now that’s good government, isn’t it?

All that’s going down the drains in New Baltimore, it seems, is taxpayer money!

Well, now the residents are suing the Town of New Baltimore, and initial hearings have been held with the Town of New Baltimore’s insurance company’s lawyers. The evidence is very powerful in showing the town’s negligence and the Town of New Baltimore Highway Department’s fault in causing the damage. In fact, evidence shows that the work done by Jordan and the Highway Department made matters even worse after they dug up New Street and they never fixed the problem of water draining into the foundations of the damaged building; in fact, they made it worse. This is how New Baltimore’s taxpayer dollars are being spent.

We reported on the hole and the sharp grate in our article “We asked for a traffic cone … to prevent this …

The residents have on multiple occasions advised the Town of New Baltimore that the hazard created by Denis Jordan and the New Baltimore Highway Department is even worse now that the hole is filled with leaves and snow, and the jagged sharp metal of the grating in the hole will tear flesh and tires. But the Town of New Baltimore has refused to even provide a traffic cone to mark the hazard.

money-down-the-drain

There are several other complaints and an ongoing lawsuit against the Town of New Baltimore because of the New Baltimore Highway Department’s mismanagement and incompetence. All that’s going down the drains in New Baltimore, it seems, is taxpayer money!

At this point, the residents intend to contact the town’s insurance company, Trident, to make a direct claim for the damage and to point out the indifference and the negligence of the town and its officers and employees, asking how Trident can justify insuring a town that doesn’t lift a finger to protect its interests or the interests of its residents, property owners and taxpayers.

If you have similar problems, we’d like to hear from you, too. The Town of New Baltimore is treading on thin ice with its insurance company. A couple of years ago the Town of New Baltimore couldn’t get insurance. Wonder why? Once the cat hits the fan and Trident is advised of what’s going on in New Baltimore, New Baltimore may not have any insurance. And you’ll know who to thank for that, won’t you?


Well, that’s a start for our recap of 2016. We’ll move on to Ravena and Coeymans shortly. But we did want to bring these couple of current and continuing issues to the attention of our friends in New Baltimore. If we can be of any help, please let us know.

We asked for a traffic cone … to prevent this …

The New Baltimore Highway Department Created a Dangerous Situation

We asked the New Baltimore Highway Department to at least provide a traffic cone to mark this dangerous piece of work done by New Baltimore Highway Department employees under the direct supervision of Superintendent of Highways, Mr Denis Jordan. Mr Jordan has so far refused to provide a marker to prevent injury or damage due to this deep hole he calls a storm drain!.

We asked for a traffic cone to prevent this!
(Never got one!)

The maintenance of this drain took about 17 years to take shape. New Baltimore Deputy Superintendent of Highways, Mr Scott vanWormer, stated as much when his crews had to dig around to find the storm drain, buried for years under several inches of dirt. When they finally found it they replaced the entire culvert and this created this unusual construction that poses a real hazard and is already collecting the eroded stone from the improperly placed road patching materials. Nice job, guys!

This is how big the hole is that Jordan left. The grate has jagged edges!

WE filed a demand for production of documents under the Freedom of Information Law (F.O.I.L.) for documents showing Mr Denis Jordan’s qualifications, education, courses and training he may have taken in order to qualify for the position of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent. Mr Jordan has only a high school graduation to his credit. He has not participated in any special training, has not participated in any continuing education, and has no college or other qualifications. Why is he building our roads and why is he in the position of Highway Superintendent with no qualifications. The only qualifications he has is how well he wastes taxpayer dollars and how he can screw up any road and any drainage problem.

We observed the New Baltimore Highway Department crew doing the work and, because it became obvious they didn’t know what they were doing — and it’s obvious Mr Jordan doesn’t know his anus from his armpit — we asked the town board to stop the work until a site meeting could be held to discuss the work. They ignored that request, too.

So we demanded in a FOIL all documents, including:

Documents, including but not limited to regulations, guidelines, laws, specifications, data sheets, etc., consulted by employees of the New Baltimore Highway Department or members of the New Baltimore Town Board in the pre–planning, planning, description, reporting, planning, design, execution of the work performed.

and

Documents relating to preliminary studies, field data collected, site–visits, site reports, site descriptions made to the proposed work site in advance of the planning, design, execution of said highway work;

The Town of New Baltimore could not produce a single document in response to these two requests; Mr Jordan did not provide a response. We must therefore conclude that Mr Jordan and his New Baltimore Highway Department did not do the work in compliance with New York State Department of Transportation regulations, guidelines, standards, etc., and that no preliminary studies were done of the site to determine the best way to proceed. Totally amateur. Totally idiotic. Totally incompetent.

Think about it this way: Your barber or hair stylist has to train and attend specialist school to cut hair, and then has to take examinations in order to qualify for a license. That’s just to do a $20 haircut! Your local funeral director has to attend specialist mortuary science school, do a 1 year residency, and then take state and national board examinations to get a licence to bury dead bodies! How is it, then, that some dumbass can get elected to be a Highway Superintendent with no education, no training, nothing at all, and then gets to play with hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars?!? Go figure!?! Oh! Excuse me. He was elected! By YOU!

This is just one example of Jordan's Incompetence.
In the figure above, (A) is the drain found when the several inches of dirt and vegetation had been removed by the New Baltimore Highway Department crew. According to Mr Scott vanWormer, he hadn’t ever seen that drain in some 17 years. (B) shows the replacement drain, rather hole, that the crew installed after replacing the culvert. We’ve never seen such a thing as this piece of work put in by Mr Jordan! It’s insane. (C) shows a tape measure indicating that the hole is 17 inches deep. (D) is a tape measure showing the hole to be approximately 2 feet long, and (E) shows the hole to be approximately 30 inches across, lip-to-lip. The grate is sort of cemented in place by the asphalt but the top is full of sharp edges. Just right for ripping flesh or tearing up tires. We asked for a traffic cone but haven’t seen one yet.

 

Square Peg in Round Hole?

New Baltimore can do that. Just ask Denis Jordan, he’ll manage it!

New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways and Board to be Sued – AGAIN!


animated_update_small

At the regular meeting of the New Baltimore Town Board, a public statement was read into the record by resident H.W. Vadney, who rebuffed and rebuked the New Baltimore Town Board and Mr Denis Jordan, especially, for failing in their duties and obligations under the law, and their dereliction and abuse of public office. At one point during the public statement, the agent of the New Baltimore resident whose property was severely damaged by surface water runoff due to the failure of the New Baltimore Highway Departments failure, under the personal and direct supervision of Mr Denis Jordan, New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways, served the resident’s Notice of Claim on New Baltimore Town Supervisor Nicholas Dellisanti and New Baltimore Town Clerk Barbara Finke. Mr Denis Jordan was to have been served at that time but he failed to appear at the meeting, most likely in hiding once he got word that a public statement was to be read and town officials served with the Notice of Claim. Read the public statement here: Public comment re NB Hwy Dept.


It’s incredible, but true. Three Town of New Baltimore Supervisors later and still the same dumbass in the Highway Superintendent’s office! Last election, New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan was re-elected by one vote over his opponent, 25-year department veteran, Alan vanWormer. Residents just shook their heads in disbelief but that was how the election was won — after the fact, of course, New Baltimore Republicans stood there pointing their fingers at George Acker and his Independence Party mob for not getting out the Independence Party voters. And, YES, the Greene County Board of Elections is a corrupt band of political hacks who dance to the tune of their own messiahs playing “Jack my Beanstalk” on their skin flutes. Crude? Yes. But frustration and anger chip away at poisonous PC.

What do you think goes through the mind of a potential buyer or developer when …

Like it or not, the condition of our town streets and roads are a factor in our property values. What do you think goes through the mind of a potential buyer or developer when they drive through the Town of New Baltimore and see poorly maintained roads, culverts that are demolished or that disappear into nowhere, erosion along the roadside, potholes filled with water? What is the sense of having a so-called National Historic District if its streets are about as damaged as the national political parties, as broken as local government. How is it that local voters continue to elect incompetent, uneducated, corrupt people to head our town highway departments, when those very people have reputations for corruption, ignorance, and incompetence? What does that say about you, Mr or Ms New Baltimore Voter, property owner? Not much, you can be sure. But that’s how you made your bed, and now you have to sleep in it. But that’s not necessarily so because there is a way, it’s called a Notice of Claim followed by a lawsuit.

Madison Ave East and New Street Drainage

Madison Ave East and New Street Drainage

Well, Denis Jordan has done it again. He’s attracted another potentially damaging lawsuit for his incompetence and arrogance. This time for extensive property damage to a residential structure on New Street in the National Historic District of the Hamlet in the Town of New Baltimore. After neglecting New Street literally for years, one resident got fed up and demanded that the Town Board investigate Why? the drainage installations on New Street hadn’t been touched for at least 3 years! Why was water draining everywhere but in the storm drains. Everyone could see it. Everyone, that is, but the Town Board and the Superintendent of Highways, who was busy as a beaver, “chasing beaver out of conduits” according to his “notes” produced in response to a FOIL demand.

The Grand Tour of Neglect and Incompetence

After having received demands for the production of documents under the New York State Public Officers Law a.k.a. the Freedom of Information Act, the New Baltimore Town Board finally woke up and smelled the burning coffee, all the water had run into a local resident’s foundation and the building was collapsing, now there was only the sickening stench of burning coffee and a looming lawsuit. So, in response to the resident’s demands to make a site visit to view the New Baltimore Highway Department’s indifference and neglect, and their incompetence, Mr Nick Dellisanti, New Baltimore Town Supervisor, and Mr Jeff Ruso, New Baltimore Deputy Supervisor, appeared unannounced on New Street, prior to the scheduled site inspection set for June 20, when Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan and his minions were to be present, and the resident gave them the Grand Tour of Incompetence and Neglect.

The Grand Tour of Incompetence and Neglect was almost complete when the advance group approached the concerned residence and the resident pointed out the erosion trails crossing New Street to the other side of the road, and pointed out the piles of stone that had washed down and had built up in front of the garage doors, when Mr Ruso pointed out the end of a culvert that appeared to be crossing the road but didn’t seem to come out anywhere. Even a bit of digging and scratching and the end could not be found. Even New Baltimore Deputy Highway Superintendent Scott van Wormer was surprised and stated that “In twenty years he never knew that culvert was there.” We have to ask the burning question: If the regular maintenance inspections were done as required by the law, wouldn’t the New Baltimore Highway Department have known about this situation? This led to further examination and it was ascertained that the poorly maintained drainage on New Street and the buried culvert drains were obviously conducting water into the foundation of the affected building!!! It was thus determined that the fact of the buried culvert, the drainage ditches that had not been cleared for years, and the resulting re-routing of runoff to the foundations of the building were the actual cause of the damage. That was on June 19, 2016.

On June 20, 2016, Mr Dellisanti, Mr Ruso, Ms Shelli van Etten (NB board member), Mr Denis Jordan and his deputy (his brother) appeared to do the actual inspection. The same results were determined. Mr Jordan just made excuses and grinned stupidly.

Denis Jordan’s Playpen

A couple of days later, a road crew appeared with excavation equipment and dump trucks filled with stone, and they proceeded to dig up the buried culvert and to replace it with a plastic culvert. When asked why they were replacing a culvert that appeared to be quite OK — it was obviously buried so long that it was actually protected — the answer was that it was found to be damaged. But, countered the resident, you didn’t do any tests or flush it out. How did you know it was damaged? Then the excuses flowed like the Hudson during Spring thaw. But the question wasn’t answered. Tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars squandered because Mr Jordan didn’t ask the Fire Department to flush the culvert. Mr Jordan preferred to squander tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars rather than rent a camera for a couple of hundred dollars to view the inside of the culvert. New Baltimore budgetary and fiscal accountability at work.

WHAT A MESS! Tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars squandered by indifference, negligence, incompetence and ignorance!!!

The resident was observing the screwing around disguised as highway maintenance and became concerned that more damage was being done than problems solved. He then notified the town board and the New Baltimore Highway Department that work should be stopped until a site visit could be made and the plans discussed. Mr Dellisanti, Mr Ruso, Ms van Etten, Mr Jordan all ignored that request and the work continued. WHAT A MESS! Tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars squandered by indifference, negligence, incompetence and ignorance!!!

It appears that Mr Jordan doesn’t have a clue about contracts, handling money, keeping records, or acceptable hiring practices

And the result? The Town of New Baltimore and the Town of New Baltimore Highway Department, and Mr Denis Jordan are being served with a Notice of Claim — You can read or download a redacted copy of the Notice of Claim by clicking here — but in summary, the resident is demanding that the Town of New Baltimore pay compensation for the repair of the building or, if the building cannot be repaired, to foot the bill for demolition and remediation. In addition, the resident is seeking compensation for other expenses such as loss of revenues and loss of use of the property as purchased. What is really important, though, is that the resident is demanding that the New Baltimore Highway Department be investigated, audited and examined for irregularities in recordkeeping, accounting, hiring and retention, and other areas of concern. It appears that Mr Jordan doesn’t have a clue about contracts, handling money, keeping records, or acceptable hiring practices. Like you don’t hire your brother and then make him your deputy highway superintendent. And you don’t hire a husband and wife etc. Recordkeeping is non-existent so there’s not a chance of a snowflake in hell to defend against any claims of indifference or negligence. The resident is also demanding that steps be taken to remove Mr Jordan from office and to hire an interim replacement. The Notice of Claim also demands that those employees found to have been involved in misconduct or negligence or abuse of public office be prosecuted and made to reimburse the people of the Town of New Baltimore for the costs of the lawsuits.

Several Days after Jordan’s Pothole “Repair” on New Street

The bottom line is this: For years residents have known about Denis Jordan’s incompetence. At least three previous New Baltimore Supervisors and town boards have received complaints about how Denis Jordan was abusing his elected office; his corrupt practices are practically common knowledge if not legendary in local circles. Now his wife, Diane Jordan, is right in the Office of the Town of New Baltimore Town Clerk, so he’s got a mole there who can tip him off almost immediately when something turns up that involves him or his irregular operations in the New Baltimore Highway Department.

As for New Baltimore residents and friends of Denis Jordan, you are just as much to blame for the damage Jordan has managed to do in the Town of New Baltimore as anyone. So don’t get all uppity and smug, pointing the finger at anyone! You dumbasses caused this problem by electing your own dumbass to be Highway Superintendent. If his incompetence is costing the town money in defending against residents’ lawsuits and the damage done by an incompetent Highway Supervisor who has no qualifications, doesn’t get continuing education, avoids meetings with other Highway Superintendents, and knows nothing about highway planning, design, engineering, or regulations. Denis Jordan’s main qualifications are that he takes care of his friends and knows how to avoid work.


Take a Little Tour of New Street With Us

Here’s a nice family activity for the weekend. Take a little tour of New Street in the National Historic District of the Town of New Baltimore and learn how not to do highway maintenance.

If you’re a friend of Denis Jordan or the New Baltimore Highway Department club, or just a skeptic, come on down to New Street in the National Historic District in the Hamlet of New Baltimore. See real-life examples of what we’re bitching about.

As you come down Madison Avenue East, approaching the corner of Madison Avenue East and New Street, look to your right and see the botched up storm drain (which was partially buried until it was cleared around June 20, 2016). A couple of feet more and look to your left and examine the culverts. Nice job, right? If you’re driving or on foot, be very careful making the right turn onto New Street, you might end up going over the unmarked, eroding ledge created by the New Baltimore Highway Department about 4 years ago, when they installed the storm drain and the culverts at the corner. They never bothered to mark the drop-off for safety!

Now turn onto New Street and as you go along ask yourself, Why are all the manhole covers covered and sealed with asphalt? How to you open them if necessary? Denis Jordan would tell you with a straight face that that is a common practice, and that the NB Sewer Department wanted that done to keep water out of the sewer lines! We don’t get it! Do you?

Moving along New Street, we’d like you to notice the erosion at the edge of the road and that the road slopes significantly downhill, to the South (New Street runs approximately North-South). Keep your eyes on the erosion at the edge of the street as you walk along New Street.

About halfway down the street, note the entry steps to the house on the river side of the street. What is that high mound of asphalt doing right at the top of the steps? Imaging that in the Winter, covered with snow and ice, and the dangerous situation caused by the New Baltimore Highway Department!

So far you should have been noticing the not only the erosion but also the so-called drainage ditches. They vary significantly in depth, some stretches deeper, others shallower, some level with the road. Hold on! If they’re level with the road, they’re not a drainage ditch! Right? Right. Why are the ditches not running continuously and at a reasonably constant depth? Ask Mr Jordan. We’re certain he’ll have a story for you.

The best is yet to come. While still noting the so-called drainage ditches and the erosion, you’ll come to a garage on your left and you’ll need to stop here. Note the washed down road covering all built up in that garage driveway and in front of the doors. but standing in front of that garage, look down and to your left and you’ll see a deep hole with a grate in it. That’s a storm drain. Imagine your car tire meeting that hole. Or, imagine you’re walking down New Street and you step into that thing! Another dangerous situation created by the New Baltimore Highway Department in June 2016, when they “repaired” the drains. By the way, that’s the end of the “dead-end culvert” discovered by Mr Ruso at the time of the site visit. Look across the street to the “drainage” in front of the green house. Jordan’s crew dug up the end of the driveway and installed an new culvert and the square grate. What’s supposed to go down that grate, anyway? They never opened the ditch or a ditch.

Now, from where you are standing you can see the erosion dirt in front of the garage and you may be able to see the erosion and runoff tracks crossing New Street to Guess where? Right into the foundations of the blue-gray house! But note how Jordan has “fixed” the drainage problem. Note also the resident’s own concrete barriers and sandbags marking the area. But more importantly, look at the damage done to the foundation of the house! All due to Mr Jordan’s negligence and failure to maintain the drainage on New Street as required by the law.

About 50 feet more and you come to the end of New Street, to the corner of New Street and Washington Avenue. Look to your left, on the river side (But be careful not to fall into the ditch on your right. The road is crumbling into the ditch and the ditch is overgrown. You might never be found if you fall in!). Note the “drainage ditch” if you can find it. it’s an embarrassment to any competent highway worker. But note the makeshift wooden wall there. That’s supposed to do What? That house was condemned by the Town of New Baltimore about 5 years ago because it was structurally unsound due to Guess what? Water damage. The owner repaired it. It’s been vacant ever since and the owner can’t sell it. Wonder Why?

So this is where your tour ends. That’s just one street in New Baltimore. Can you imagine what the rest of the town’s like? We hope you get the point.

In summary, you should know that before the “repair” and “maintenance” work was finished, the resident was concerned about what was being done and asked the Town of New Baltimore Board to stop the work until a site meeting could be held. The resident wanted Mr Jordan to explain his plans and design, and why he was doing what he was doing. It didn’t seem right. Something was wrong and needed to be fixed.

Neither Mr Jordan nor the New Baltimore Town Board responded. That’s how the situation got to where it’s at now.


We want to hear from anyone who knows anything about Denis Jordan and his corruption and incompetence. Most importantly, if you have already made a complaint, filed a lawsuit, or if you have served a Notice of Claim on the Town of New Baltimore and are planning a lawsuit, we want to hear from you. You can either leave a comment on this blog or you can contact us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com.

You're On the Spot Now! Shame on you!

You’re On the Spot Now!
Shame on you!

 

Think Before You Vote. Or Pay the Price Later!

loser poster

Jim Youmans and Tom Dolan are Losers!

WOW! This just in: We’ve acquired a copy of the October 26, 2015, Coeymans town board meeting. We will be publishing extracts of that meeting so that you can be aware of the stupidity of Youmans and Dolan, and you can hear for yourself what idiotic scoundrels they are. Or, you can go to Coeymans town hall and ask to listen to the recording, and decide for yourself! You be the judge! You’ll also hear residents telling Youmans and Dolan off for being such jerks, and for misleading the community. Tom Dolan, especially, gets a good whoop’n from one resident. You gotta hear the tape!


We’re Here to Tell You What They Don’t Want You to Know!

Politics is all about character, or should be. But all we, as voters, get to see is the big smiles, hear the big promises, and get the nice-guy treatment. But what you see is not what you get. Let’s take a deeper look at what’s available next week in the voting booths. And you thought the Walking Dead was scary? Read on!

Give me your (brain) vote!

Give me [your brain, and then] your vote!

We’ve already covered the Coeymanazi bunch of recycled politicians running for election or re-election in the town of Coeymans. Anyone with the memory of a cockroach would steer far away from these accidents looking for a place to happen:

We’ve already reported in considerable detail on the terrible choices the Coeymans Dumbocraps under Tom Dolan have this November 3. If you missed the article, you can read it at   Go to the article link above for The Crandall, Dolan, Touchette Connection: Wanna Be Sick?

croneyismPhil Crandall: We’ve already pointed out his problems — we’ve already written about them — so we won’t go into that again here. Just go to the article link above for details.

Rick Touchette: A charter member of the Crandall “do-me-a-favor” club. He’s a loser, too. Ran last election time and lost. Why would you want to have him again? Check out the link above.

Jim Youmans: This guy is the proverbial “used car salesman” with a lousy personality. He’s mean, nasty, and most people in Coeymans town hall want nothing to do with him. He joined the losers’ club when he lost his bid for re-election to town supervisor a couple of years ago. And didn’t Youmans show his true colors when he stomped out of the October 26th town board meeting. Jim Youmans is now publishing CONFIDENTIAL town information on FACEBOOK (obviously Tom Dolan is leaking this CONFIDENTIAL town information DESPITE the town attorney’s (a Democrat!) caution not to publish it yet. Youmans received a copy of the confidential draft document from Tom Dolan, and now Youmans is wrongfully publishing the information on FaceBook, in order to sabotage the town and to take advantage of the Dolan leaks. Youmans lifted the copy of the CONFIDENTIAL document from Tom Dolan’s table at the October 26th town meeting. Isn’t that theft?

While Jim Youmans is a bully, he did a lot of his damage using his tool, Touchette. Was Touchette willing to be Youmans’ tool or was it just that Touchette was easy to use. Either way, it doesn’t speak too highly of Touchette, not that anyone or anything would.

And Why? hasn’t anyone yet asked about Jim Youmans arrest record. He’s a well known bully but hasn’t anyone but a very few, including his victims, questioned his fitness for public office with an arrest record for harassment? Our information and reliable sources indicate that he and perhaps his wife also, were arrested for harassment. Sort of goes along with the reputation as a bully, doesn’t it?

Tom Dolan: This dimwit has kept the lights in Coeymans town hall dimmed for years now. He has a long history of scandal and questionable behavior regarding votes and voting, and misusing his position with the Choices program in Ravena-Coeymans. He’s Dithering Dolan, the political failure who, when he’s not exchanging benefits for votes from ghetto residents, he’s renaming the town. This guy is useless and a member of the Crandall “do-me-a-favor” club, and one of the crooks who got Crandall canned from his job as Coeymans town justice and part-time Ravena village justice for violating the NYS Judicial Laws Check out the link above. And didn’t Tom Dolan leak a confidential draft from the Comptroller’s report on the audit done this year, clearly labeled “CONFIDENTIAL“? Can’t Dithering-Dolan read? And you can thank Dithering-Dolan for the fine choices he’s provided in terms of unelectables on the Dumbocrap ticket; Old Tom Dithering-Dolan is the Coeymans Dumbocrap chairman and picks the Dumbocrap candidates. Just buddies helping buddies out –it’s called political cronyism a.k.a. corruption!

If you don’t think Touchette and Youmans are losers, ask anyone in Coeymans town hall who were unlucky enough to have had to work with them when they were in office before! Ask people like former Coeymans town supervisor Henry Traver, who was so abused by Youmans and Touchette, that he had to ask the Coeymans police to be present to prevent mahem at town executive sessions. Traver was terrified of Youmans, and Touchette, sneak that he is, backed Youmans’ lousy and cowardly behaviour. Youmans was a bully and nothing has changed. Just what we need back in Coeymans town hall and the county legislature, more thugs.

head_in_sand

We don’t want to mention the dirty politics that went on when the Coeymans democraps were collecting signatures or the scandal about the absentee ballots. How can a Dumbocrap sign a Conservative petition and have the signature witnessed? Ask his dishonor, Phil Crandall and his son-in-law, Anthony “Tony” Walsh.  We won’t mention the fact that Crandall’s son-in-law Anthony “Tony” Walsh, Jenna Crandall’s husband, falsely witnessed the illegal signatures on Crandall’s petitions. Basically the same ethical violations for which Crandall was brought up on charges. How can Crandall’s son-in-law witness his father-in-law’s petition signatures — without being present when the petition was signed? Walsh signed as a witness but, according to reliable witnesses, allegedly wasn’t with the candidate, his father-in-law, when going door-to-door; you have to be either a notary or member of the party, but Walsh, a registered Conservative, just let Crandall go off and do what he wanted. Van Buren Street in Ravena, absentee-ballot capitol of the world, seems to be home base for these crooks.

Mike Albano: Me Retard!

The Phil Youmans mutant. If you see this, go Republican!

Now here’s another juicy bit of news: Mike Albano was caught red-handed by Joe Vitello, candidate for Albany County Executive, tearing down Vitello’s campaign signs;  Mike Albano is Phil Crandall’s father-in-law! Albano was caught red-handed by Vitello himself! We’ll be interested to see if any charges are pressed. Go figure.

Phil Youmans, a Phil Crandall–Jim Youmans mutant, goes around putting his signs right in front of Stephen Flach’s signs so that Flach’s are not visible. Seems that Dan McCoy Supporters are doing the same thing to Joe Vitello’s signs, so that they can’t be seen. Doesn’t the RCS school district have places for retards like Youmans and Albano? Yeah, it’s called special ed kindergarten. Or Albany County Jail. You choose.

And we don’t want to mention insider Nita Chmielewski, former failed town supervisor,she’s hot for Crandall. Wonder if she’s got her beady crossed eyes on a job as “confidential” secretary? Well, if she does you know one thing for certain: With Crandall’s record of unethical conduct and Chmielewski’s character, nothing will be safe, much less confidential! Or maybe Nutty Nita has her eye on the budget office. Be careful here! Remember Nita Chmielewski resigned as town supervisor over the flack she got for publishing a 10% budget increase. But do we have to mention that that 10% was an error resulting from Nitas problem doing simple math? Maybe it’s just best to keep Nutty Nita and her buddy disgraced ex-judge Phil Crandall as far away from Coeymans  town hall as possible. What do you think?

Peter Masti: Masti’s been taking up space on the Coeymans town council and that’s all he’s been doing. No, wait a minute, he likes to write letters to the editor of the Troy Record. Troy Record! Why doesn’t he put his opinions in the local rag, the Ravena News Herald? Well, Coeymans voters, if you haven’t figured it out yet, this California-transplant unbeliever-turned-bible-thumper from Hippyville-California doesn’t have much use for you, unless it’s as a stepping stone. Maybe he’s trying to keep his crazy ideas away from the local voters because they’re too “California-crazy” and wants to have his say but far and away.

Matt-the-Mutt Miller Has His Beady Eyes on a County Legislature Seat

Don’t Let that Happen!!!

Break the chain of corruption!

This blog has alerted the RCS school district, RCS taxpayers and RCS parents a number of times about Matthew J. Miller’s a.k.a. “Matt-the-Mutt’s” questionable morals and conduct. Matt Miller is a CROOK! We alerted RCS taxpayers about Miller’s deal with certain now extinct members of a former Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk board of education (under the Deluca mob) to be paid tens of thousands of tax dollars as “energy manager” for the school district. In other words, he told people to turn off the lights. This wouldn’t have been so bad if he weren’t DOUBLE-DIPPING! You see, he was also being paid FULL-TIME to teach, which he wasn’t doing either (see below). We guess that makes him a TRIPLE-DIPPING CROOK.

Matt-The-Mutt Miler 's a Loser!

Matt-the-Mutt Miller is a Loser!

If that’s not bad enough Matt-the-Mutt Miller allegedly told his RCS students that he’s an ATHEIST. Being an atheist is not big deal but telling impressionable and sensitive young people about your problem is a big deal. Parents: Do you want your teachers telling your kids about their personal beliefs? You’re trying to teach your kids to have values, morals, maybe even be good Christians, Jews, or Muslims, and their teacher is telling them he’s an atheist. So, Mr Miller, what do you do when it comes to the pledge of allegiance? Remember “One nation under God”? Do you refuse to pledge? Or do you make believe and pledge? Or the US dollar, “In God we trust.” Do you get paid double-dipper dollars or in rubles? You’re worse than a simple hypocrite, you’re a crooked hypocrite.

Iff you check out Miller’s LinkedIn page at Matt Miller you’ll have to wonder if his campaign head shot isn’t 25 years old at least. Compare Miller’s LinkedIn photo with the photo from 2014 and you’ll have to ask when he got his facelift? But Matt-the-Mutt’s face really isn’t the issue here. The issue is whether he’s fit for elected office and that is a no-brainer: He’s not. He arrogantly lists on his LInkedIn page that he’s been 14 years Local Union president, 3 years Union Treasurer/PAC chair (PAC is the RCS “political action committee”), 6 years District Energy Manager he means the RCS school district, during which time he was double- or even triple dipping for at an average rate of $8,000 a year, stealing tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars!). He seems to be real proud of his teachers union connection; he says more about that than he does about the RCS central school district. But that makes sense; he’s probably used the district as much as he can and now wants to move on. Like now we thinks he’s going to get a seat on the county legislature for the 39th district. Only if real fools vote, and only then.

Matt-the-Mutt<br>(2014)

Matt-the-Mutt (2014)

Matt Miller(2015)

Matt Miller (2015)

Matt-the-mutt wrongfully and improperly, Yes! cowardly, encouraged students to be uncivil and disrespectful when sending comments to a local blog, this blog, when he didn’t have the balls to comment himself. That’s what your tax dollars are paying for with Miller: an education in how to be  uncivil, disrespectful and deviant. Just like Matt Miller.

For years Matt Miller has been the local NYSUT (New York State United Teachers) sockpuppet in the RCS school district. He’s the teachers union representative in the district. But here’s where he gets he dubious distinction of being a triple-dipper at taxpayer expense: He is paid a full-time teacher salary but has a reduced teaching load so he can do his union work! So, do you think his union work is in your interests or the kids’ interest? Guess again! He works for the union and you’re paying for it! Triple-dipping crook Miller.

So, now Matt-the-Mutt Miller wants you, the town of Bethlehem, to elect him to be an Albany County Legislator. That’s just what the already crooked, corrupt Albany political machine needs like a hole in the head: another corrupt crook! So, go ahead, put the atheist, double-triple-dipper, union lackey Matt Miller in a legislator’s chair in Albany. You don’t have to be a nuclear physicist to guess whose interests he’ll be serving there: the union’s and his own!


Church of St Patrick RavenaPope Paul VI: “The smoke of Satan has entered the church through a small crack.” In Ravena’s St Pat’s RC, that’s a mighty big crack

And then we have Saint Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Ravena, the favorite watering hole for the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club and the Coemanazi Coalition. St Pat’s is where “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca and Bottle-blond fitness club failure Cathy Deluca hang out. It’s where Phil Crandall, Rich Touchette and other “good Catholics” go to collect political capital and play the hypocrite in saint’s robes. It’s where Crandal, Touchette, Dolan and their kind go to hand out holiday turkeys as if they were their own, and getting credit for the generous gifts. Pope Paul VI made the famous statement that “The smoke of Satan has entered the church through a small crack.” In Ravena’s St Pat’s, that’s a mighty big crack that lets in the likes of the Crandalls, Touchettes and Delucas. And you wonder why churches are avoided by the honest and good people of the community?


New Baltimore

Does anyone know any of these people running for office in New Baltimore? Does anyone know anything about these people who

Who are they?

Who are they?

are asking for your votes? We’ve lived here practically our entire lives and those names might as well be from Kansas! Well, pretty close: Arthur Fullerton is from Arkansas. Really!!!
Let’s start with the candidates for New Baltimore supervisor. We have the incumbent, Nick Delisanti. Delisanti is a pussy-cat in a business suit but is doing a sincere,  honest and decent job in town hall. Actually, the worst thing he has done since voted into the supervisor’s office is make the stupid statement, “Republicans appoint republicans.” We think he’s paid enough for that stupid remark, and if he’s smart he’ll be grateful for the non-Republicans who put him where he is.


Delisanti team finalizes a balanced budget for New Baltimore!

This just in: At the October 26, 2015, town council meeting Mr Delisanti and his team passed the preliminary New Baltimore town budget with no net increase and no more deficit; it’s balanced! (There is no longer an operating deficit as there was in 2012, 2013, 2014!). Only 1% pay increase to hourly-wage town employees. A slight increase in health benefits for employees and retirees, which was due to the insurer, not to any action by the board. Again, Delisanti and his team have kept the town budget under control. The final budget is slated for discussion and for final approval at the November 9, 2015, town board meeting.  Thank you!


But Delisanti and his team have cleaned up New Baltimore Town Hall and have put policies in place to ensure transparency and accountability. Some people don’t like that. They call themselves New Baltimore Dumbocraps and they take their orders from witch-on-a-stick Diane Louis.

What Delisanti has done together with his team is clean up the crooked and incompetent mess left by two dumbocraps, Louis and O’Rorke, and their dumbocrap friends. Remember when the most recent dumbocrap, Susan O’Rorke, left town hall, all the computers were wiped clean of data, records either disappeared or were locked up tight and no one seemed to have a key. (We still wonder why those responsible for that didn’t end up in jail.) That’s an example New Baltimore dumbocrap transparency and accountability with town dumbocrap chairman Diane Louis’ clique. Those of us who watch the New Baltimore dumbocraps know what sneaks and crooks they are. New Baltimore Dumbocraps don’t do their business in New Baltimore town hall, they do it at (or under) the bar at the Boat House (the New Baltimore Dumbocrap HQ and town hall).

Fullerton's a Loser!

Arthur Fullerton is a Loser!

This is a good place to deal with another phoney running for public office: New Baltimore’s answer to Coeyman’s Jim Youmans: Arthur Fullerton. Some character with a mega-ego, Arthur Fullerton, another unknown, has been put up for New Baltimore town supervisor by the New Baltimore Dumbocraps, and is another Louis sockpuppet. Fullerton is from Arkansas (Bill Clinton’s state) and is a recent implant, a carpetbagger as they were called in years past, in New Baltimore. Fullertons’s big on stealing credit from others and using it to make himself look real pretty. Just look at his gimme-your-vote card we all got in the mail. Nothing about Fullerton just about his ancestors. Big deal!

Fullerton’s website is just as big a pile of bullshit as Fullerton is; full of rhetoric and lies and little real information for voters. Did you expect anything else from a Diane Louis lackey?

We said earlier that Fullerton doesn’t really represent anything substantial and his website says it all: He has a tab, a section on “Issues.” (click here to read Fullerton’s “issues“). The self-proclaimed communicator and consultant Arthur Fullerton apparently has no understanding of what issues are but he has enough issues of his own. His issues page is about as empty as Fullerton’s credibility chest! And if we rely on Fullerton’s press releases (go to “Press Releases“) to get some idea about Fullerton and his plans for New Baltimore, all we get is Fullterton’s concerns for cell phone reception and the New Baltimore town newsletter. Are those the biggest issues facing this town, Mr Fullerrton? Well maybe in Fullerton’s empty dumbocrap head. Some of us have bigger fish to fry (right now it’s keeping corruption and idiots out of New Baltimore town hall, starting with Arthur Fullerton!).

The problem with Arthur Fullerton is that he can’t get his facts straight or is an outright liar. Probably both. One example is the propaganda he’s been putting out about the New Baltimore town newsletter. Fart-face Fullerton claims on the website “Bring Back the New Baltimore Town Newsletter” but incorrectly and inaccurately that, “New Baltimore had a great informative town newsletter for many years. The current administration choose to kill it.” WRONG! That’s an example of Fullerton’s version of incorrect facts. It was actually the O’Rorke administration that eliminated the New Baltimore town newsletter, not the Dellisanti administration. It was Fullerton’s own party-partners, Diane Louis and Susan O’Rorke and their cronies who eliminated the New Baltimore town newsletter. So let’s get that little bit of misinformation corrected like yesterday!

Fullerton is not strong on issues. Actually, Fullerton hasn’t really said much about issues in the town of New Baltimore, has he? Well, except for the bid lie about the newsletter and that’s got to be one of the biggies we all are losing sleep over. Isn’t it? What’s Fullerton’s stand on getting Mr Denis Jordan to comply with the law and with town policies about spending and approvals for contracts? How about that one? But it’s unlikely Mr Fullerton will be much interested in stuff like that since Mr Denis Jordan is a party-pal.

Mr Fullerton is really a big bag of wind blowing warmly from Diane Louis’sagging butt. Fullerton is a paid-in-full, dyed in the wool member of the misinformation party, the give-it-all away party, the me-mine-it’s mine party, the New Baltimore Dumbocraps. So, if you like being misused, left out, and if you want to give away what little you have left to the New Baltimore incest club, Fullerton’s your man. Can you live with that?

Denis Jordan

Driving through New Baltimore you can almost guess where you’ll see a “Denis Jordan for Highway Superintendent” campaign sign.

corrupt official

And you can pretty much assume that where you see a Denis Jordan campaign sign that the property owner is on the Denis Jordan gift list; that’s the gift list that Denis Jordan has for people he likes to do special favors for at taxpayer expense. Most of us are on the Denis Jordan blacklist; the list of residents that Denis Jordan refuses services to despite the fact we pay taxes.

If you have a Denis Jordan sign on your lawn, you’re probably getting favors from him for your vote!

Favors? Bribes?Denis Jordan has been a Dumbocrap fixture for years and has been misusing and wasting New Baltimore money and resources since he’s been superintendent. He refuses to obey the law when he makes purchases for the highway department. He makes deals with his friends. It’s easy to be a dumbocrap fixture if you’re stone ignorant and corrupt.

Jordan flatly refuses to comply with town of New Baltimore purchasing and contracts policies, which were put into place to provide voters and residents as well as auditors with transparency and accountability. These policies were put into place by the Dellisanti team when, to their horror, they found that previous administrations didn’t have any, ignored them if they had them, or just looked the other way when Jordan played his unlawful games with taxpayer money. After all, how was Louis and O’Rorke going to get their driveways plowed? And wasn’t it Jordan who refused to plow out the fire department’s driveways and parking lots? What does that tell you about Jordan?

Not enough for you to consider Alan VanWormer to replace Jordan? Read on…

Here are some snippets you’re probably unaware of about Mr Jordan:

  • Denis Jordan has about 17 years with the New Baltimore highway department (Alan VanWormer has 25+).
  • Jordan demoted Alan VanWormer from his position as deputy superintendent as soon as Jordan found out VanWormer wanted to run against him. We guess that Jordan is a big fan of fair play. NOT!
  • George Acker, Independence Party county chairman, gave Alan VanWormer a promise of support and backing from the Independence Party; Denis Jordan’s signatures were thrown out. Denis Jordan failed miserably in the primaries.
  • Denis Jordan has no respect for highway department employees (ask them!). For example, one employee had a heart attack, was transported to the hospital by ambulance, in hospital and Jordan throws a fit because the employee can’t come in. Another employee is diagnosed with thyroid cancer, on chemotherapy, has side effects and can’t come back to work as planned. Jordan asks him if he wants to keep his job. Is that the kind of guy you’d like to work for?
  • Jordan orders highway department employees not to speak to a certain community leader if they see him. Jordan obviously never heard of the First Amendment or of common courtesy. We’re not surprised, he’s a dumbocrap.
  • The famous Jordan-Halstead truck deal: A couple of years ago (during the Louis administration), Halstead bought some trucks from Denis Jordan. Halstead then sold the trucks back to the town. Smell any corruption here?
  • According to the Office of the New York State Comptroller, in an audit the Comptroller found that Jordan’s department was in violation of the New York State General Municipal Law regarding highway spending, contracts and quotes required for purchases. According to our information, Jordan is pulling some illegal tricks and is still not complying with state laws.
  • When summoned by the New Baltimore town council to answer questions on his spending and purchasing practices, Denis Jordan fails to appear but sends his attorney, Maeve Tooher, recently resigned (August 24, 2015) from the NB planning board, to respond for him. Tooher, in an outrageous display of ignorance and defensiveness, defends Jordan’s violations!
  • Jordan submits to the New Baltimore town council a bogus corrective action plan.
  • Jordan, together with former Dumbocrap Louis-lackey Susan O’Rorke decide that they are not going to plow the Medway Grapeville fire department property. Marylyn Woodhall, a close friend of Denis Jordan, together with Jeane Horne are on the Fire Board. The fire departments have had to get outside companies to plow. Fire district funds down the chute!
  • Denis Jordan, while refusing to plow fire department property, still plows New Baltimore Conservancy dumbocraps’ parking lot for $1. (Still Wondering why the New Baltimore Conservancy is supporting Arthur Fullerton and Denis Jordan? The Conservancy is on the Jordan gift-list!)
  • When we talk about Denis Jordan’s gift-list friends you might want to ask some residents on Washington Avenue why their buildings are collapsing because of poor roadway and drainage maintenance! Or ask a couple of New Baltimore residents why they still don’t have the collapsed culverts repaired (Ask Bernie Jones or Patty Hildebrandt, for example, what the response has been from Mr Jordan and his department).
  • Since the 2013 Comptroller’s audit, the O’Rorke administration provided Mr Jordan with a computer so that he could comply with the New York state purchasing and contracts laws, look up bids, etc. (See the O’Rorke administration’s bogus Corrective Action Plan in response to the Comptroller’s audit. The Comptroller’s 2010 audit found the same issues as the 2013 audit. Nothing changed!). But Mr Jordan is still 100% computer illiterate. Why is that?
  • We have foiled public access information from Denis Jordan’s highway department and have found that Jordan does not keep complete records! No records for drain or drainage work on Madison Avenue East or New Street in the National Historic District. None at all!
  • Mr Jordan has a very special relationship with Peckham Materials (road paving materials etc.), but they’re not even in Greene County! But why would Jordan pay more for materials from Peckham than he would have to pay locally? Why does Jordan refuse to get bids and quotes for the materials? Answer: Because Jordan is incompetent, corrupt, and doesn’t know the first thing about contracts!
  • Finally, even though the New Baltimore town council under Nick Delisanti has purchasing policies in place to ensure compliance with the law and to provide responsible management of taxpayer dollars and to provide taxpayers with transparency and accountability, Jordan is fighting them tooth and claw. He refuses to comply with the law and with policy. He’s even breaking down purchases into multiple orders and invoices to avoid having to get approval for the amount of the whole purchase. What’s the problem Mr Jordan? Got something to hide?
Denis Jordan's a Loser!

Denis Jordan is a Major Loser!

That’s why Denis Jordan needs to go on November 3. Jordan needs to be replaced by Alan VanWormer, who has more experience, has been with the New Baltimore Highway Department longer, knows the business, and will provide the  transparency and accountability we all fairly expect from an elected official but can’t seem to get from Denis Jordan.

We may never be able to uncover all of Denis Jordan’s corruption — there’s just too much and it’s been going on for far too long —  but at least with someone new in the job, we can keep an eye on what the new guy does in the highway department right from the start..


VanSlyke vs Linger for Greene County Legislature:

Mr Jim VanSlyke is running for re-election to the Greene county legislature. Mr Pat Linger is opposing him. We think a statement made by Mr vanSlyke at a recent New Baltimore town board meeting sums up Mr vanSlyke: “As a county legislator we get some money that we can give away. I have to give mine to Catskill, Cairo and Windham, because there aren’t enough organizations in New Baltimore who ask for it.” (paraphrased by informant). We expect Mr vanSlyke to have his finger on the pulses of the communities in his territory and that he should know who they are and if they need support; vanSlyke should announce the availability of the funds and organizations could then apply for them. What’s wrong with you, Mr vanSlyke? What in hell are you doing, anyway?
