Double-Standard Davis: Asking New Baltimore for another Term as Town Justice?

animated-updateLee Davis lost his bid for re-election to another party-boy, Tom Meacham (R). We found that Meacham, even before the elections, was violating NY’s Code of Judicial Ethics and New York Judicial Law, and we’ll be filing a formal complaint against Meacham in the very near future. It seems that New Baltimore, like so many towns and villages, can manage only to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find non-achievers to fill their local courts with ignorant party-butt-kissers. We’ll work to change that and improve local justice.


Two candidates are vying for the office of Town Justice in the Town of New Baltimore. Two misfits are asking voters in New Baltimore to put them on the local justice court, the bottom-feeder of the New York State Unified Court System, as bottom-feeder justices. Tom Meacham has already been exposed as being ignorant and unfit for judicial office because he’s already violated several provisions of New York’s Judicial Law and Code of Judicial Ethics even as a mere candidate. Either he’s dumb as dirt or he’s sleeping with the wrong keepers. But the bottom line is: he’s unfit for judicial office, even in a bottom-feeder town court. (See our recent article on Tom Meacham at: Tom Meacham Not Even Elected but Already Ethics Violations!!!!)

Meacham and Davis: Bottom-feeders seeking election to bottom-feeder judgeship.

Meacham and Davis: Bottom-feeders seeking election to bottom-feeder judgeship.

So that leaves the sucker voters of New Baltimore with the other candidate, Lee Davis, who apparently likes to refer to himself as “Judge” Davis. It’s that very egocentric, narcissistic “Judge Davis” on his campaign signs that initially attracted our attention. Yes, Mr “Judge” Davis, has been unfortunate enough to have gotten our attention, and we think he should have your attention, too, New Baltimore voters.

The initial question we had was about Davis’ character. Why would a local candidate want to distance himself from his neighbors, the voters, his community by adopting his office as his personal identifier. He flaunts “Judge” as if he were ashamed of his name, “Lee”. Our conclusion was that he is a stuffed-shirt. Lee Davis is not the person “Lee” Davis, he’s become his role, his office. This is a very serious transformation, and it’s one that we don’t want in an elected official, because any elected official who “becomes” his office can’t fully relate to people in the way that a judge must. Anyone like that has lost his person-ality and cannot attain the necessary wisdom to judge.

Our concerns led us to do some investigation and research on Mr Lee “Judge” Davis, and what we found and where we found it will send shivers down your spines.

And so…

Mr Lee “Judge” Davis is not what you see and what you see is not what you’re getting. At least not according to Lee “Judge” Davis’ older brother, Harry Davis, whom we have found and who has shared quite a bit of background on Lee “Judge” Davis, and we’d like (1) to share that information with our readers and the New Baltimore community, and (2) demand that Mr Lee “Judge” Davis come forward with either a denial with facts or to bow out of the New Baltimore elections and go into hiding.

Tokin' Judge?

Tokin’ Judge?
Yeah. But he don’t inhale.

The most damning allegation made by Mr Lee “Judge” Davis’ brother is that Davis used/uses drugs and allegedly cultivates weed somewhere on his 7-acre property in the town of New Baltimore. Although Davis’ older brother admits to introducing the sitting New Baltimore town justice to unlawful pleasures, Harry Davis alleges that his brother is a user and a dealer/distributor. This is a serious allegation indeed and is one that Mr Lee “Judge” Davis must be called to refute and to refute convincingly.

Mr Lee “Judge” Davis’ older brother Harry, who ran for public office once in Rochester on a legalize drugs theme, insists that his brother Lee “Judge” Davis is a “hypocrite” and “limosine liberal,” too!

Harry Davis provides a long history of Lee Davis’ activities working with convicted criminals to promote their rights in prison while neglecting his disabled brother. Harry calls his brother Lee a “limosine liberal” because while he’s Goody Two-shoes on the outside, all he’s doing is making himself visible for his own interests. When Harry Davis calls Lee Davis a “limosine liberal” it’s because Harry considers Lee to be unauthentic, dishonest, and a hypocrite. Not the kind of guy we need judging our citizens.

This sounds about right because Lee Davis is running on the Democrap ticket; that’s the liberal, socialist party now in the United States, and they’re not really known for their good judgment or morals.

It’s no secret that Harry and Lee are estranged at the very least but there’s no reason for us to doubt what Harry has to say about Lee, since Harry is very candid about himself and his mistakes. But Harry’s not asking to be voted to judicial office either.

Gimme your vote!

Gimme your vote!

Among the many things that Harry has shared with us is that Lee was involved in a shady property deal that left his brother Harry out in the cold, literally, and allegedly cheated Harry out of his share. Even the suggestion of such conduct is disqualifying for a judge. If you do that to your brother, what can a stranger expect?

Harry also alleges that Lee was negligent in caring for their elderly mother, who, allegedly due to Lee’s negligence, was involved in a serious traffic accident while operating a motor vehicle, and later died of complications. Harry alleges she should never have been driving at her age and that Lee allowed her to do so. If this is true, this shows a very serious lack of good judgment on Lee Davis’ part.

Harry does tend to go on about Lee’s myriad wrongs and misconduct, and we have to understand that there’s a great deal of hurt there. There’s a great deal of fact, too, we believe. You see, Harry has presented his case perhaps a bit colorfully but given his openness and some of the supporting information, we tend to believe that Harry is generally credible.

But whether Harry is hurt or not, even if a tiny portion of what he has told us is true, this community must seriously investigate Lee Davis’ fitness to fill any public office, much more so if he’s asking to be re-elected to be town justice in New Baltimore.

Lee Davis is a small-change attorney who works for the New York State Department of Health allegedly in a unit that slaps naughty doctors’ hands. Davis was previously in the corrections system where he advocated for prisoners’ rights. Davis makes about $95,000 a year with the State of New York and that’s nothing compared to what a real lawyer would be making. So it appears that although Davis is something of a non-achiever, someone who doesn’t really aim very high, on the outside, he’s apparently a sneaky weasel on the inside, which is consistent with a cowardly, insecure personality.

If Lee “Judge” Davis cannot foster justice and fair-play in his own immediate family…

bottom-lineThe Town of New Baltimore and the Democrap party backing Lee Davis are not forthcoming with information on this character so that the voting public know who he is and what he’s all about. All we get is what they want us to know and hear. Well, now we need to hear from the Democraps on how they vetted their candidate, Lee “Judge” Davis, and from Davis himself in response to his older brother’s allegations. We don’t really expect Lee Davis to respond or, even if he does, to admit the truth. Given that expectation we have to urge voters to keep this man off the bench in New Baltimore. After all, given the allegations by Davis’ older brother, Harry, Lee Davis has some really smelly baggage.

An even deeper question is: If Lee “Judge” Davis cannot foster justice and fair-play in his own immediate family, how can he claim to do that in a courtroom of strangers? Our expectation is that he cannot and consequently he has no business passing judgment on anyone!

Our final question to Lee Davis, bottom-feeder attorney, is why he is so happy being a town justice, a bottom-feeder judge on a bottom-feeder court, and Why? he hasn’t aimed higher, for a real judgeship? Maybe it’s because he’d be under greater scrutiny, vetted, and his background investigated and the truth about Lee Davis would be out and he’d be disqualified! Maybe that’s why he’s settling for a small town Democrap backing on a small-town court. Think about that.

Given the pre-election violations by Tom Meacham (R) and the fatal information on Lee Davis (D) provided by his older brother Harry Davis, New Baltimore doesn’t have any electable candidates for the seat on the New Baltimore Town Court. That leaves only the alleged adulterer dumbass Joseph Farrell on the New Baltimore Town Court. Dunce Farrell has been around for so long he probably should be kept in a museum case as the “Petrified Town Justice”, since his brain has long turned to sludge. But Farrell has made a lot of friends in New Baltimore and they’re enough to keep him in office, as long as they can depend on him.

The New York State Unified Court System has been trying for years to find a way around the town and village court system and the problems that bottom-feeder town and village justices cause due to their ignorance and incompetence. Town and village justices do not have to be lawyers, do not have to have a college educations, and need only a high-school diploma to be a town or village justice. Did you know that? Then you have little or no background checks, and their political party backers are interested only if they can get them elected. It’s the rest of us who have to deal with them for their four-year terms, if we are so unfortunate as to have to appear before one of them. The very least we have to to do protect ourselves is to do our own homework and keep the crazies and scoundrels off the bench.

Let your vote count and write in “FairPlay” and let them count that vote.

Residents and voters of Albany and Greene counties are not second class citizens and we shouldn’t be offered the sub-standard dregs we are getting from the political parties and local party committees; that’s not what our votes are for. Our votes are not food for their egos; our votes are for the good of the people, not for the good of the politicians. Let your vote count and write in “FairPlay” and let them count that vote. Don’t give the scoundrels numbers on the balloting. Just write “FairPlay” in the write-in space on the ballot on Tuesday, and let that be counted as your vote!

That may be your only defense, Lee Davis. The Editor

That may be your only defense, Lee Davis.

Editor’s note: We have asked one of our contributors to contact the Town of New Baltimore to ask Lee Davis if he has an older brother, Harry, and if Harry lives in Rochester. Once we have that confirmation, we will pursue other relevant questions. As of this writing, the Town of New Baltimore has not responded.

 

George Acker, Greene County Independence Party Chairman: “We never forget.”

New Baltimore in Focus or In Our Sights. You Decide.

buck_in_crosshairs

Looks like the New Baltimore Re-pubic-an Incumbents on the town board are in for a scary ride this time. Nick Dellisanti and sidekick Jeff Ruso seem to have done a classic job of pissing off the Independence Party hierarchy and may have lost some much-needed support.

pissed-me-off-you-have

The Independence party supported Nick Dellisanti (R) and his group last election but Dellisanti turned around and screwed with the Independence party candidates when the voting was done. Dellisanti’s suicidal statement: “Republicans appoint Republicans” is turning out to be a poison pill for him and anyone running alongside him.

While the Independence party may have an axe to grind with Dellisanti, the past two years have been really disappointing overall. Dellisanti and his group don’t seem to be able to set any milestone accomplishments. What they do seem to have excelled in, however is distortion, deception and misrepresentation. Seems also that they don’t have the wherewithal to fight battles, within town hall and outside of town hall, because they don’t understand the local culture.

But what can you expect from outsiders, anyway?

The Dellisanti group fails in leadership

New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti (R) and town board member Jeff Ruso (R) behaved unethically, using local supporters and disposing of them ungratefully after the voting was done — after all, according to Dellisanti, “Republicans appoint republicans,” (for example: Barbara Finke (R) to be town clerk, Kathy Rundberg (R) to be planning board chair, etc.). We’d like to see appointments by merit and for the good of the community as a whole, not just for party cronies, Mr Dellisanti. But their failings don’t stop there. The Dellisanti group fails in leadership and does not respond affirmatively nor decisively to residents. Moreover, Dellisanti and Ruso have the bizarre tendency to ignore residents’ offers of participation in local town affairs, ignoring correspondence on a number of occasions. Rather than calling them liars outright, Dellisanti and Ruso have their own versions of facts, too. Where’s the transparency, accountability, collaboration we were promised?

On the Democrap side your have wicked-weasel-momma Diane Louis; generally disliked in just about every circle but this wicked-weasel-momma that she is, she has staying power (probably because she eats her young, despite the fact that she’s vegetarian). Very nasty piece of work.

Arlene McKeon is Louis’ sidekick and has an ego to match. You can be certain of one thing: Louis and McKeon have the interests of Louis and McKeon at the top of their priority list.

On the Re-pubic-an side you have another wicked-weasel-momma, Jean Horne, who has a listening problem but likes to give orders. Ever hear the story why we have two ears and one mouth, Jean? Jean is going to have to do some puddle-jumping to keep her feet clear of the doggy-doo piles being left by her darlings Dellisanti, Ruso and others. Horne will also have a problem with New Baltimore highway superintendent Denis Jordan who can’t seem to cooperate with town hall, can’t seem to handle the job he’s expected to do as highway superintendent (more on Hamlet streets in an upcoming article), but has plenty of town-time to take care of special locals — sort of favors for votes. But isn’t that illegal, Mr Dellisanti? You know about it but you haven’t done much about it. Why is that? Jordan has to go!

And then there’s the question of the money being paid to New Baltimore animal control officer Joe Tanner who works full time elsewhere and can’t possibly respond to animal control calls until he get off his other job. That’s why he conjures up undocumented investigations and why his favorite line is “sign a complaint.” Signing a complaint gets him off the hook and the complainant has to do the work. Nice scam for an additional $3-4,000 a year for nothin’. But isn’t that illegal, too, Mr Dellisanti? And what about you, Mr Ruso, isn’t animal control one of your committees? You know about it but haven’t cleaned house yet. Why is that? (But then neither did democraps David Louis or Susan O’Rorke.)

two ears one mouthThe wicked-weasel mommas stay behind the scenes and like to call shots and bark instructions. They like to pick candidates so they have someone to be their sockpuppets. They also like to play dirty behind the scenes and let others take the crap. That’s their wicked-weasel staying power game.

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

Do Louis and McKeon take the pill?

dove with olive branchSo what are the wicked-weasel-mommas going to do now that their wicked-weasel candidates can’t expect to run only with democrap or re-pubic-an backing, and they have to get the backing of the next major party, the Independence Party? You guessed it: They grovel and crawl to George Acker, while they wave their insincere, phoney plastic olive branches, begging the Independence party for support and endorsement. But…

George Acker:The Independence party never forgets.”

Well, now that Dellisanti and Ruso have pretty much sewn themselves into a potato sack and are just waiting to be thrown into the Hudson, Arlene McKeon is going to have to do some fancy steppin’. Why? Because the Independence party will be a hard nut to crack for the repubics. Irene Beede, Independence second-in-command, recently told New Baltimore’s Dellisanti that they’ll “need more signatures” to get Independence backing. Translation: You’re dead in the water. Take a walk. According to Independence party chairman George Acker, “The Independence party never forgets.

Then there’s wicked-weasel-mamma Diane Louis who is begging the Independence party to endorse her new sockpuppet, Arthur Fullerton. We’re researching Fullerton but if the adage, “birds of a feather flock together,” proves true, we have some grave concerns. The very fact that Louis is pushing Fullerton already taints him as being cut from the same cloth as a David Louis or a Susan O’Rorke. We’re looking at him in those terms until some really persuasive stuff comes our way.

Who this Arthur Fullerton is is a bit of a mystery but that’s always the case with the democraps and has been the history of any democrap town hall: keep it in the back room. That’s not to say that the re-pubic-ans don’t have their own secret agendas but,  obviously, when Diane Louis sees something in a potential sockpuppet that alone should put the fear of the Lord in all New Baltimore voters from the get-go! Think David Louis. Think Susan O’Rorke. That’s Diane Louis at work.


First of All, We Have to Take Control of Ourselves!

An editorial aside

Voters in New Baltimore and everywhere must stop letting others think for them. Our whole American culture has become a nation of sheeple. Turn on the TV or the radio and listen. You’re being told what to think, what to buy, what you need, what you want, what you should be thinking, what not to think, what you don’t need. They’re even filling your heads with fear and anxiety. What you should be fearing today. Whom you should fear today. Anxiety and fear are very effective methods of controlling populations (remember Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pho Pot?). Another way of keeping populations under control is to isolate them. Isolation is used in prisons to control populations and it’s used on the general population, too! How? You may very well ask! By creating a self-focused society. A ME!-first society. By destroying institutions that unite people, starting with the family, the church, communities. Isolation. Distractions are also very effective: more toys dominating your attention and you won’t notice what’s going on around you. How about keeping people poor? If you’re worried about your bills and survival, you’re likely not to pay very much attention to politics. Right? Very few people today actually think independently; most are simply robots doing what the media tell them to do. Are YOU one of them? Don’t think for a minute that political party leadership in their conventions, caucuses and whatnot have your interests in mind. They first look at electability. Can we get this guy or gal elected? They’re looking for numbers. And they’re looking to put through THEIR agendas. It’s a power trip for them. It’s an ego trip for them. It’s disaster for us!

One lesson we can learn from recent events in Greece, the birthplace of democracy: when governments are screwing you, take to the streets and change it. Good for you, Greece! Democracy is alive and strong in Greece. It’s all but dead in the USA (maybe it never arrived in the USA…maybe it’s all just a big propaganda spoof and you all believe it)!


For the past two decades or so the town of New Baltimore has been merely a feeding ground for incompetent amateurs feeding their inflated egos with hard-working citizens’ votes. We don’t need Harvard M.B.A.s or healthcare administrators to run this town. We don’t need democraps or re-pubic-ans either, since at this level they are DINOs (democrats in name only) or RINOs (republicans in name only) and they’ll change their party affiliations in a flash if it serves their perverse ambitions. And we don’t need political parties or widked-weasel-mommas to select their cronies and tell us whom we are going to have to vote for. Enough already! We don’t need any more outsider amateurs who want a town they can play with. What we need is some dedicated, community-oriented, sincere, honest people who can respect the local culture and respond to local needs and concerns, while having the balls to take a stand and to tell the downstaters and carpetbaggers that this town of New Baltimore belongs to the people of New Baltimore who make their homes here. What we do need is for native New Baltimorans to wake up and take New Baltimore back. We need neighbors and friends to start running the town and tell the cliques and egomaniacs to take a hike.

Anyone who arrogantly tells another citizen resident that his or her chances of working for the good of this town depends on his or her party affiliation and not on his or her merit; in other words, that “Republicans appoint republicans” does not deserve to be in public office — here or anywhere else.

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Fullerton, Dellisanti, Ruso, etc., Will you survive?

Any candidate running in this town of New Baltimore from this point on will have to pass the acid test, will go through a baptism of fire, before he or she makes it to the ballot. We call upon all citizen residents of New Baltimore to start taking responsibility for this town and to join us in telling Diane Louis, Arlene McKeon, Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Ruso and anyone else that this town is still a democracy and is not a party-political machine shop. Any candidate’s priority must and will be the single common good of the community of New Baltimore and nothing less than that.

We’ll be reporting more on this issue as we move closer to the campaigns. We’ll also keep our ears to the ground and pick up any vibes, do our research, collect our facts and report responsibly to the community. We also need to inform the community of New Baltimore town superintendent of highways, Denis Jordan, and his attempt to stay in office to maximize the damage he can do to the town while banking his pension. There’s an alternative brewing that may be the town’s chance to save itself. Stay tuned!

We Specialize in Rubbish Removal: A Perfect Record

We're cleaning up!

We’re cleaning up!

Since the inauguration of this blog as a reliable source of community information and as a catalyst for change-for-the-better of the communities in the R-C-S southern Albany county and northern Greene county regions, we have accumulated a long list of accomplishments, thanks to the contributions and support of the communities we serve. Here are just a few that we successfully pushed to rid our communities of trash:SUCCESSES%20starburst

  • John Bruno as Mayor of Ravena: He’s history.
  • We showed how Nancy Warner is a two-headed snake and hypocrite: She’s history but doesn’t know it yet.
  • Tom Boehm and his cronies on the Coeymans town board: He’s gone and so are they (rest to follow).
  • The dirty-hands-duo Dirty-Hands-Jerry Deluca and his sidekick Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin'” Darlington: they’re both gone (but with their pensions, regrettably!).
  • The illegal and unlawful Ravena Health and Fitness Center (and its failure manager, Cathy Deluca): it’s bye-byes for the RHFC and Cathy Deluca (see below).
  • The Coeymans Police Department (but we do support keeping Chief P.J. McKenna in the capacity as law enforcement liaison to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police; McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with a great deal of experience and savvy.): it’s curtains for the CPD!
  • The Coeymans incestuous gang of dispatchers: they’re passé.
  • In New Baltimore, we worked to get rid of the democrap mob under Susan O’Rorke and get some new blood in New Baltimore town hall: we’re working to get some work out of the new egomaniacs in NB town hall now.
  • Also in New Baltimore, we worked to oust the former town clerk for alleged abuse of office: we ended up with an initial political appointee, Barbara Finke (NB town supervisor:Nick Dellisanti  “Republicans appoint republicans.” — That was a really bad response, Nick!) who ran unopposed and is now in office — Well, almost, Finke seems to be away, absent, on vacation more than she’s in the clerk’s office (but that’s fuel for another article): Bye-bye next election.
  • We exposed numerous local scandals in Ravena village hall including the incompetence of the village clerk (a Bruno appointee,Annette Demitraszek, and deputy-clerk Kristine Biernacki, Nancy Warner friends), the public works scandals and Henry Traver (we have some tidbits to share on Traver and his relationship with some of the hopeless hopefuls) and Sandy Debacco, the water scandals, the Ravena mayor and boardmember health insurance benefits scandal (full-time benes for less than part-time work!), and we’re still working on those.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the scandals involving Denis Jordan, NB superintendent of highways, and his unlawful labor practices, his non-existing recordkeeping, his misuse of town resources.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the problem of Joseph Tanner, animal control officer, being paid several thousands of dollars of taxpayer money while he works full time for the New York State Department of Transportation; he can’t possibly respond to animal control calls while working on a road crew!
  • An the list goes on and on and on. Just search this blog and get the facts! We’re working on some great exposés at this very time. Stay tuned!
"Dirty-Dumplin'" Darlington as Busdriver

“Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington as Busdriver

And speaking of Gregory “Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington, former chief of the Coeymans police department. That same dirty cop who conspired with Nancy Warner and then Ravena mayor John Bruno to harass and persecute Ravena kids, how is it that the “Dirty-Dumplin’” was recently observed driving an RCS school bus?!?! How can the RCS school board allow that weasel who was such a savage to our children only a year ago should now be have access to our children on their school buses? Where are you parents? What’s that pervert doing on the bus with your kids? Is the “Dirty Dumplin’” that hard up for a job? Won’t his fellow weasel Albany County District Attorney David Soares give him a job? Nope. Even David Soares isn’t that stupid. Only the RCS board of education can claim to be that stupid. Check out this Family Guy busdriver clip.

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center: The Ravena town board refused to fund the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center in 2015. We certainly applauded that move but had to ask Why did it take them so long? Almost a year prior they admitted it was failing and was a money pit. At a recent Ravena village board meeting we were appalled to have heard that the Village was looking into getting county/state funds to keep the money-pit operating for another year, presumably to keep failure Cathy Deluca in a job. Where were they going to get the funds? Well, they expected to get money from the money confiscated from drug dealers and placed in a fund for supporting communities etc. The Ravena village board had better think again. Here’s Why?

  • We smell corruption and collusion in that announcement. Is that why we see Dirty-Hands-Jerry Decluca‘s New York State Association of Fire Chiefs official vehicle at Ravena town hall? Is he still misusing police information to shoe-horn his pet hippo into a secure position?
  • We smell Nancy Warner still trying to keep her biatch-buddy in a job but still at taxpayer expense! It’s not going to work, Nancy. That money you’re greedily eying is earmarked for worthwhile community projects, not to keep your friends in play-money!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way!

According to the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department was “interested” in taking over the Ravena Heaps and Fatness money pit! That’s absolutely absurd! To think that Craig Apple or anyone in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department would seriously consider taking over that dump is absolutely scandalous and political suicide! Warning to Mr Apple: Stay clear of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center or face election ruin!

But according to that same report in the Ravena News Herald, Ravena hasn’t heard a peep from Mr Apple or anyone in his department regarding the alleged “interest.” Maybe there still is some sanity in Albany County.

Here’s our promise: If the Village of Ravena or anyone associated with the Village of Ravena even tries to submit a request for funds or grant money, especially from money confiscated from drug dealers, the shit will hit the fan big time. We will obtain all applications and the names of all persons involved and expose them all. We will contact all regional community-based organizations, non-profit community organizations, non-government organizations an create an avalanche that will bury Ravena village hall. Once we’ve gotten the support of regional organizations, we’ll use that support to demand investigations, audits, and prosecutions from the Office of the New York State Attorney General, the Office of the Comptroller, and others. So think again, Ravena, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way! And if the Albany County Sheriff is so asinine to allow himself to get involved in such a scandalous and corrupt situation, he’d better start updating his résumé because he’ll be political HISTORY in a New York minute, and be listed as a political suicide!

It’s bad enough that even a rumor is even circulating that any Albany County department would consider taking over the Ravena money pit but to think that the suggestion is that the Albany County Sheriff would be willing to redirect confiscated drug money or any public funds to the third Cathy-Deluca-failure is pure insanity. Note that Mr Apple, and note it well.

Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions…What’s next, campaign signs in the windows of Ravena village hall?

electioneering

Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey represent all that is corrupt in Ravena — aided and abetted by Ravena “Mayor Mouse” Misuraca’s band of retarded sockpuppets. It’s an election year and the roaches are coming out big-time! Nancy Warner is flashing her fangs from her nag’s head, together with doddering mumbler Bill Bailey, “Mr Nasty” Jim Youmans, Graveyard Manager Rick Touchette, and several other failures. Nancy Warner is dead in the water but doesn’t know it. In fact, we were flabbergasted when we drove by the village gazebo during the village-wide yard sale and saw Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Rick Touchette all misusing public property in their electioneering! Misusing public property for party political campaigning is heavy duty unethical and illegal. That’s the same Nancy Warner who had the Coeymans police chasing local village kids when the kids were hanging out at the Gazebo. But it’s OK for Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions. Right? WRONG! We’d also like to remind our readers, especially our Ravena readers, that it was Nancy Warner [with the support of Bill Bailey] who orchestrated the mindless scandal of creating the Ravena Health and Fitness Center — which we all now know was devouring more than $100,000 a year of Ravena taxpayer dollars before the Ravena board woke up and admitted it was a failure and a money pit —, and it was Nancy Warner, who hired known failure Cathy Deluca to be manager of the fitness center, and who ensured that Ravena village hall insider Robert Fisk managed to collect more than $40, 000 of Ravena taxpayer dollars for his used fitness equipment. And it’s that same Bill Bailey who wants to meter and charge Coeymans fire department for the water they use in responding to emergencies, putting out fires! And it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who want to turn off water to the hamlet of Coeymans. And, Yup!, it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who, for years, have been involved in the unlawful and improper water and sewer billing practices in Ravena. But now they’re looking for your votes! No Way José!

And let us remind RCS residents and taxpayers that it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who upped the RCS Community Library’s rent an additional $600-700 a month to force the library to vacate the library space for the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center. And it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey along with former Mayor John Bruno and his puppets on the Ravena village board who were constantly threatening the RCS Community Library with eviction. Show us any other community in the civilized world that would do that to its community library!

Warner and Bailey: Illegal and unfair water and sewer billing, shadey bookkeeping, harassment of our kids, illegal and unethical campaign practices, abuse of the community library, supporters of the Cathy Deluca failure system a.k.a. the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, insider dealers. Do you still want to put them back in village hall?

Tom Dolan and Peter Masti of the Coeymans town board are also looking for election to political office. Tom Dolan is an abject failure and an embarrasment to the democrap party: he’s managed to lose his grip on every important issue and is waffler-in-chief on the Coeymans town board. Dolan has to go and like yesterday. He’s got a lot of negative baggage, too, like his alleged manipulation of voting through is Choices office. That’s going to follow him. And let’s not forget the favors he allegedly accepted from local town and village justices for his kids’ drinking and drug problems. He’s corrupt and is not above taking unethical and illegal favors.

Peter Masti misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it — we don’t need to elect fanatics or more tunnel-vision in local government!

Now native Californian Peter Masti, who likes to remind readers of his many letters to the editor in the Troy Record that he’s a registered nurse, is a real dud. We’ve pubished some of his lunatic letters to the editor. Now we’d be the last to malign religion and spirituality, but Masti’s sense of god is perverse. He’s a literalist and fundamentalist (he uses the Bible as a weapon to control, that is, he misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it.) He’s been an embarrassment on the Coeymans town board since he’s was elected. Fanatics and tunnel-vision have no place in our government and we need to start cleaning house at the local level.

"Cryptkeeper"Touchette Campaigning

“Cryptkeeper”Touchette Campaigning

And then there’s Rick Touchette. Touchette has a reputation for lying through is teeth but that’s no news in Ravena-Coeymans politics, much less in Albany democrap circles. We all know that Albany County is already a social and economic graveyard, and that Coeymans and Ravena are even deader. So it’s only natural that Rick Touchette, with his extensive credentials and experience in managing graveyards, should want to run for Albany County legislator. C’mon people, wake up and smell the decaying corpses we have running for public office. The irony of Touchette’s ambition as published in the Ravena News Herald (June 11, 2015) really made us laugh. Here’s a guy (Rick Touchette) whose entire experience is managing cemeteries and now he wants to legislate for Albany County. Now really, neighbors, isn’t that scarey? The Cryptkeeper wants to be your legislator!

Rick Touchette's career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

Rick Touchette’s career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

For some years now Touchette has been the executive director of the Albany [Roman Catholic] Diocesan Cemeteries, and if you’ve ever had to deal with that bunch of anal freaks, you’d steer well clear of Touchette.

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

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

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

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

All Demon-crats, All Venomous

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

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

Itchy, Bitchy and Barren The Sisterhood

Itchy, Bitchy and Barren
The Sisterhood

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

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

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

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

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

Demoncrat McKeon Please ignore the stubble.

Demoncrat McKeon
Please ignore the stubble.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ravena Mayoral Race Off and Running

Predictability and Stagnation: Ravena Democratic Slate for Mayor, Councilpersons

Political Stagnation
Political Stagnation in Ravena Village Hall

Vision and Freshness: Ravena Republican Slate

Misuraca-Coye-Mahler Team to Challenge Bruno-Case-Persico Gang

It’s a No-Brainer! Correction: It does require a brain to do what’s right and decide what’s best for the village of Ravena. Ravena needs change, and the Ravena Republican slate is offering voters the opportunity to make that necessary change. The opportunity to give Ravena a new lease on life. Actually, the revitalization of Ravena won’t start on Main Street Ravena until it starts in Village Hall Ravena.

Revitalize Ravena Starting with Ravena Village Hall

Revitalize Ravena Starting with Ravena Village Hall

On January 27, 2014, at the Ravena Democratic Caucus, the Democrats made the same predicatable move to nominate John T. Bruno as their mayoral candidate, and confirmed Martin “Marty” Case and Rocco Persico to be their bad choices for village trustees. Here”s our take on that mistake:

  • The Ravena Democratic caucus met on January 27th but their numbers were way down. Only about half of the usual attendance was there. That should tell you something for a start: They don’t have much support even from their own hangers-on.
  • Furthermore, keep in mind that the Bruno and Persico clans in Ravena are not going to waste a second in calling in their large tribes and their members to hit the polls on March 18, 2014. That’s how it’s done in Ravena: the Incest Club calls all of the tribe to vote for them, and they do stick together. That’s all the more reason why the rest of us have to mobilize and get to the polls!
  • Second of all, Bruno is going to use his medieval strong-arm techniques and his usual threats to bully anyone and everyone to put him back on his throne. Bruno will probably be twisting village employees’ arms, too, threatening them with loss of the cushy jobs if he gets voted out. So Bruno’s pets and appointees will be doing everything they can to keep king Bruno in office. They have a lot to lose if he loses.
  • Remember, too, that Martin “Marty” Case and Rocco Persico work for the RCS Central School District and that bunch stick together like dung beetles on a turd ball. Marty Case just barely got voted in in the last elections and lost in his bid for the Coeymans supervisor’s office this past November 5. He’s a loser when it comes to doing anything except cashing his oversized teacher’s paycheck. Rocco Persico is a school psychologist but didn’t do very much when it came to protecting students or Ravena youth and teens. Both Case and Persico are useless and we can’t expect much more from them. But be prepared for some dirty teacher tricks when it comes to bullying the vote. They’re good at that.
  • Coeymans Democratic Committee chairperson, Tom Dolan, is a multiple loser and has shipwrecked his party in the recent Coeymans town elections this past November. Dolan has a history of playing dirty with the ballots, too. He runs the social services organization Choices, and will likely be abusing his position there to influence the Oakbrook Manor voters. The best thing to do to stop that is to watch Dolan and his minions very closely and to let the Albany County Executive know of any misuse or abuse of power, leave us a comment here and we’ll alert the New York State Comptroller’s office and the NYS Attorney General. Everyone has to take voter fraud and manipulation of votes very seriously, even if it is indirect. Watch Tom Dolan very closely.

But even with Bruno’s behind-the-scenes bullying and Case’s and Persico’s backing by the RCS Central School District, they don’t have much of a chance because they have a pitiful record so far. Even Bruno and Persico might have a tough time getting the votes they need to take the election, even if they do call in village employees and family ties. People are just plainly sick and tired of the misery that life has become in Ravena.

Bruno & the Vampire Squad Albany Dem Machine Will Suck You Dry

Bruno &
the Vampire Squad

Albany Dem Machine
Will Suck You Dry

John Bruno, Marty Case and Rocco Persico are useless to Ravena and its residents; their only value is to the Albany Democratic Machine and its destructive, vampire effect it has on Albany County. All you have to do is compare the vitality and energy just to the South, in Greene County, a traditionally Republican county, to see the difference. If Ravena intends to survive, it has to escape the boney fingers and iron grip of the Dem Machine represented by Bruno and his gang. It has to be done on March 18, at the polls.

Here’s How to Revitalize Ravena:

First of all, clean out village hall and all of the parasites, leeches, crooks, and dead wood that have been nesting there for the past several decades. That means get rid of Bruno and all of his minions. King Rat has to go and then all the other rats will scurry for cover. No matter what lies you may hear from Cathy Deluca or Nancy Warren, it’s all election time campaign rhetoric to save their own asses. Just ask local businesses or count the empty buildings and closed businesses on Main Street alone. Bruno, Deluca, Warner and the rest of the village hall rat pack don’t have a plan; they never did, except to line their own nests with your money and sweat.

The Ravena Republican caucus met on January 29, and was well attended and enthusiastic. Even the town of Coeymans boardmembers were there to show their support. Why so enthusiastic and so much support? Well, because they met to confirm a slate of very promising younger candidates who have the community connections and smarts to do what Bruno and his mob couldn’t or wouldn’t do: Serve the community.

Bill “Moose” Misuraca is the people’s choice for mayor. Bill is young and energetic. He’s a business man and has been doing business right in Ravena for years. He runs the popular Halfway House Tavern, a village institution for going on almost century, and a popular dining and drinking establishment popular with the life-blood of the village of Ravena. (Besides, they have the best seafood chowder in the area!) Bill and his wife, Jena, are familiar and popular figures in Ravena, and both are and have been very active in community affairs, especially when it comes to area children and youth. Bill Misuraca truly has his finger on the pulse of the community; Bruno has his fingers in your pockets.

Joe Coye and Keith Mahler are challenging Marty Case and Rocco Persico. From where we are sitting, it’s going to be like shooting fish in a barrel and we really feel sorry for Case and Persico. But they asked for it. Marty Case has lost so many times already he’s apparently gotten to like being a loser; Rocco Persico is so laid back and “slow” he probably hasn’t even caught up with last week. Joe Coye and Keith Mahler form a great team together with Misuraca, and once elected will bring light, vision, and hope to village Hall. But what’s more important: Misuraca, Coye and Mahler are likely to shake things up, clean things up, and clear things out of village hall that should never have been there in the first place. We also expect that they’ll trim a lot of the fat and bring transparency and accountability back to Ravena. Feels good already, doesn’t it? You can almost smell the freshness in the air already.

revitalize the community

Our polls tell the real story already. In fact, we’ve moved all the polls, unchanged, to this article so that those in the community who have not yet participated can do so now. Misuraca takes the lead by a considerable margin over Houghtaling, while Bruno has 0 support in our polls. We’ve added a new poll below to get your inputs on (1) the Republican and Democrat mayoral candidates, and (2) the candidates running for village of Ravena trustee. Let the numbers be your guide!

[Editor’s Note: The write-in candidates marked with an * were not consulted regarding their willingness to run prior to this posting. We feel, however, that they would make excellent village trustees and so we have drafted them and are proposing them as write-ins for village trustee.]

Finally, a word of advice to Mr George E. Langdon, newly elected Town of Coeymans councilmember: Mr Langdon, you were elected to serve the commuinity and residents of the Town of Coeymans on the Town of Coeymans town board. You should concentrate on your duties and responsibilities on that board, and should spend every waking hour committed to that trust put in you by the voters of the town of Coeymans. Any other distractions from the service to the public for which you were elected should be avoided. Specifically, the distraction of power-grabbing and your attempts to steal the chairmanship of the Coeymans Republican Committee must cease and desist immediately. Concentrate on the job for which you were elected, or resign and then consider the chairmanship (if you dare). Under no circumstances should an elected public official/servant have the chairmanship of a political party committee; it may be legal but it’s not ethical! Stop now!

And a word to Mr Kenneth Burns, newly elected Town of Coeymans councilmember: Do the job for which you were elected and stay out of the business of political coups. A good word of advice to you, Mr Burns is this: keep your advice as to father figures to yourself. You’ll find less egg on your face.

Stay tuned for more important information on the candidates, the elections, and how we think Ravena can join the 21st century.

If anyone knows anything about any of the candidates or anyone close to them that is relevant to their fitness for public office, please share your information with us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com. Now’s the time to go public with it. You owe it to the community and to yourself.

Venerable Coeymans Republican Committee chairwoman Barbara Cumm has published the Public Notice under the provisions of Section 15 of the New York State Election Law notifying all registered Republicans in the Village of Ravena that the Republican Caucus for the Village of Ravena to nominate candidates for the office of Mayor of Ravena and two village trustees will be held at the Ravena Firehouse at 116 Main Street, Ravena, New York on January 28, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. The Village of Ravena Elections will be held on Tuesday, Mary 18, 2014.

Content Update_Smalbany Blog_BW

The word on the street is that Chairwoman Cumm has tapped William “Moose” Misuraca to be the Republican candidate for Mayor of Ravena. Moose Misuraca, as many of you already know is the same Moose Misuraca who runs the Halfway House Tavern, a village institution for almost 100 years, in Ravena-Coeymans, and is the grandson of patriarch Frank Nunziato. Moose is very much in touch with the local community and can take an ass-kicking and still remain level-headed and even-handed. We know this for a fact because we have blasted Moose on a number of occasions and he’s kept his cool. Moose is a better choice when we consider his ability to be down-to-earth and a real people person. These are very positive character traits when compared to the explosive and offensive personality of mayor John T. Bruno.

All that said, and although we have our doubts when it comes to the technical parts of mayoring, and some of Moose’s wife Jenna’s choice of friends and associations (a well-meaning relationship with the somewhat shady RCS Sports Association, a coziness with the notorious Cathy and Jerry Deluca that makes many people cringe, some of the groups she’s supported in the past (Fiends of RCS etc.), Moose is promising as a candidate given the numbers in our most recent polls, clearly leading Ron Houghtaling by at least a 50% margin, and leaving John Bruno in the mummy dust.. But will Moose be able to handle the pressure of his wife’s, Jena’s friends and still be a neutral public servant and not become a puppet mayor? Will he isolate Ravena village hall and make it a private club for the special interests and questionable friends, to whom  his wife Jena appears to be attracted, addicted? Or wil both Moose and Jena surprise the hell out of everyone and rise above the raw sewerage of special interests and corruption in Ravena-Coeymans. Sure, he’ll be able to call in consultants and advisors, if necessary, but it does take some skill knowing when you don’t know. And it takes big balls and raw courage to resist mere popularity and to champion real principles. Running even a small municipality like Ravena can be a challenge, especially when you’re dragging some heavy baggage and some dirty laundry along with you. And we all know from painful past experience when a heavy-handed bullshitter tries to run things: that’s the Bruno experience for the downward spiral Ravena has lived through since Bruno’s dictatorship has run its evil course for more than a quarter century. Bruno’s old and so is his style. Ravena needs change, positive change. Maybe Bill .” Moose” Misuraca, despite some of his and Jena’s questionable [= rumored] connections and friends might be that change. Maybe not. Can we handle the risk?


Our Advice to Barbara Cumm and to John Bruno

Our Advice to John Bruno, Marty Case and Rocco Persico!

Scandalous Greed: Not Satisfied with Being Elected to Public Office, Coeymans Board Members Now Want to Grab More Power!

shark attack great white

Our advice to the greedy power-hungry gabbers is this: You were elected to serve the residents and community of Coeymans, not to run a political party! Just concentrate all of your energies on your new responsibilities before your start grabbing more! Stop acting like a bunch of children and conduct the business of governing the Town of Coeymans in a fair and balanced way. You have enough to deal with right under your noses: Deal with it! Chairwoman Cumm played a significant role in putting you where you are. Maybe some gratitude is in order! Dontcha think?

Mr Langdon: Get real! Get to work, and stop drooling over a commttee chairmanship you have neither the right nor the experience to covet!

Unconfirmed reports and the word on the street is that several Coeymans Republicans—Ungrateful bastards and power-hungry wolves in sheepskins?— have visited Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson Barbara Cumm, and have asked her to step down. Apparently, the misguided group is not pleased with the way she’s been serving the Republican party in Coeymans—even though she’s successfully navigated the Coeymans Republican party to win a number of elections— and successfully steered the party from the whacko direction its seems to want take under the imprudent direction of some power-hungry newbies. Cumm managed to get them elected and that’s how they allegedly treat her. Aren’t they satisfied with being voted into public office? They want more? What is in store for the voters now that they’re in office. To be fair, Barbara Cumm is a native of Ravena, she was raised and grew up in this very area. Barbara Cumm loves Ravena-Coeymans and wants to see it thrive. We feel that the direction the village has taken and the attitude of some persons [Mr Flach, Mr Burns (!), Mr Masti, Mr Langdon] is far from moral and verges on the unethical. We’d like to remind you gang of four that public office is characterized by SERVICE not power-grabbing.

It is our avowed principle that no one in public office should also serve as a party chairperson (Right? Tom Dolan!); it opens too many doors to corruption and power-grabbing, and all too soon the notion of SERVICE has lost its meaning. We have noted Mr Kenneth Burns’ imprudent remark about “father-figures.” Burns is on our monitoring list already. The rest of the Flach team had better tow the mark; all eyes are on you guys.

If the rumor is true that Mr Flach, Mr Langdon, Mr Masti, and Mr Burns have shown their colors and are ungrateful sods, Chrisitans that they claim to be, we don’t like what we hear. Don’t forget for one second that Ms Cumm served for many years and should not simply be discarded nor should she be vilified or disrespected by anyone: least of all local Republicans and the very one’s she’s guided into the offices they now occupy. If this blog has in any way made the impression that we do not respect Ms Cumm and her loyalty to her hometown, the principles of her party, her dignity and her accomplishments, we’d like to correct that impression right now.

Coeymans Shark Attack!!! Hungry Coeymans Board Members Visit Chairworman

Coeymans Shark Attack!!!
Hungry Coeymans Board Members Visit Chairworman

Our recommendation in the past has been, that if and when Ms Cumm decides to resign,  to make her Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson emerita in recognition of her many years of service but also to rely on her experience, wisdom and savvy to ensure that the Coeymans Republican party is the party of ethics and solid values, ralther than self-service and power-grabbing. Unlike John Bruno, who is a dinosaur, Barbara Cumm is a servant leader. They’re from different dimensions or universes: Bruno is 30 years behind the times, Cumm, it seems, is reality oriented and future visioned. Where Bruno doesn’t have the sense of reality that would tell him to have the dignity to resign and hand over the baton to someone who can bring the dying village of Ravena into the 21st century, Barbara Cumm has shown wisdom in putting together a Republican party slate that overturned the old-boy corruption and put new faces on the board. (We can only hope that the new faces are not just masks hiding the same old business-as-usual thug-types.)

Our advice: Leave Barbara Cumm alone and respect her alleged choice for Ravena Mayor, Bill Moose Misuraca. Why? You might ask? Well, Bill knows the people, knows their needs; he listens to the buzz. He’s got a business right in the middle of town, is very well aware that if the village slides any further down the slippery slope created by the Brunos, the Delucas, the Warners and the others in the in-crowd, the Incest Club, he loses his livelihood and possibly a business that has a long history in Ravena—almost a century. But CAUTION: We don’t want to create a Coeymanazi haven, a nest of insiders in Ravena village hall that is worse than what’s there already. We need the Service Squad.


We were hoping for someone like Ron Houghtaling who has a wealth of government and administrative experience, and who has the brains to impress. Maybe that’s why he wasn’t called on to seek the nomination. Maybe his own history of unsavory connections and the fact that he doesn’t have the Misuraca allure is his own baggage, his own dirty laundry. While he’s got a working brain and will think for himself, and make experienced decisions, maybe the downside outweighs all of that.

chopping-cashWe also think that the present village of Ravena offices in their present location would make a fine location for the Coeymans Town Hall, tooWill Moose Misuraca work closely with the Town of Coeymans to re-establish the old Ravena-Coeymans with one administration rather than the present wasteful two administrations running one community?Will Moose Misuraca  would have the negotiating skills and the experience to approach the town government to make the move. That brings up the subject of consolidating the hamlet of Coeymans and the village of Ravena. Think of the good sense that makes. One administration, one court, one budget. No more fingerpointing and bickering. The only ones who want separate governments are the ones who stand to profit by the inefficiency: the Bruno crowd. Let’s start thinking in the 21st century, people, and let’s move in the right direction. Even if the village and the hamlet are not consolidated (as they once were a number of years ago), the two administrations would be better off in one location and the present village hall would be just the place.

Think in terms of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars every year right around the corner and what that could mean to Ravena-Coeymans and to residents. It makes good economic sense but the Bruno crowd would fight it tooth and claw because they’d never have a chance at taking advantage of their captive audience again.

Now think of getting rid of the Coeymans police department and all of those leeches. Think about saving at least $500,000 a year and still having a local sheriff department presence right down the street. An then there’s also the NYS police who are in the area. What could you do with that $500,000 in savings each year while financing the Sheriff Department satellite station in Ravena-Coeymans. Money back in your pocket people. Why are you fighting it? Here’s why: You’re being lied to by the leeches and their idiot friends. The Coeymans p.d. leeches don’t want to lose a good thing; where could they go to suck as much blood and play cops and robbers at a community’s expense like the Coeymans p.d. does?


Coeymans Police Department and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca:

It must be getting a bit hot in the basement of Coeymans town hall, though. Kerry Thompson get’s pulled out by the Sheriff in an eleventh hour effort to distance himself from the Coeymans p.d. and avoid certain embarassment. Now we hear it’s getting too hot for Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca who’s retiring (actually resigning) from the Coeymans p.d. Does the Coeymans town hall know that Deluca was hired illegally by his friend Gregory Darlington? That should affect his “retirement”, shouldn’t it? Before they start signing any checks they’d better audit the books and check the records and the law; we wouldn’t want the New York State Comptroller’s Office and the Civil Service Department to go behind closed doors with the New York State Attorney General and find that there’s fraud in the Coeymans P.D., would we?

Dirty-Hands Jerry Resigns; Is Darlington Next?

Dirty-Hands Jerry Resigns; Is Darlington Next?

Are Jerry Deluca and Gregory Darlington going to try to run and hide before the shit hits the fan? Do they really think that if they abandon ship like rats that they’ll be beyond the reach of the law or retribution to the public they’ve screwed so royally? Is the Coeymans taxpayer going to be satisfied paying the leeches their pensions in view of their years of abuse, corruption, and hypocrisy?

"Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca" Resigns

“Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca Resigns

It was difficult to keep from vomiting when reading the page one article “Happy birthday, Ravena!” (Ravena News Herald, January 23, 2014) and its sickening portrayal of Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca. Town councilman Kenneth Burns revealed a side of himself that made us doubt both his sanity and his connection with the community when he characterized the cop-bully Deluca as a “father figure to the community.” Either Burns was high on something or otherwise intoxicated to describe Deluca as a “father figure” to the community Deluca has deceived, taken advantage of, lied to, and bullied for years. Maybe Mr Burns has a different idea of a father figure; maybe Mr Burns means an abusive father with no ethics or morals. A “father-figure” who is a hyppocrite.

Our Message to Coeymans town councilman Mr Kenneth Burns: It’s that kind of stupid remark that gets you noticed. You’ve been noticed, Mr Burns.

But then, when saying good riddance to bad rubbish, maybe the Coeymans town council members are just so happy and relieved to get rid of the bully Deluca that they figure he’ll still be roaming the streets with time on his hands (when he should be doing time), so why rock the boat. Deluca was always in trouble while they had reasonable control over him. What now? Deluca is allegedly involved as a defendant in several lawsuits pending so he’ll be kept busy…one would hope.

We Recommend: That the New York State Comptroller, the Office of the NYS Attorney General, and the New York State Civil Service Department carefully audit and investigate Gerald Deluca’s employement record to ensure that his employment by the Coeymans Police Department was in accordance with the law. We have reason to believe that he may have been hired by Gregory Darlington illegally. That should certainly raise some eyebrows at state level. The Town of Coeymans had better do its own investigation and pronto!

Deluca Supersize Greed:

Lady-Kiss-Hips animationThe greed of the Deluca pair is about as super-sized as they are. Ravena News Herald sockpuppet Bryan Rowzee reports in that same article that Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno was accompanied by “Ravena Health and Fitness Manager and Centennial Celebration Committee chair Cathy Deluca” to tout Ravena’s 100-year anniversary of incorporation. With Bruno and Deluca working on it it’ll probably be featured at the Babcock Funeral Home more as a wake or memorial service than anything else! But Cathy Deluca will do anything—and we do mean anything—to get noticed (How could you not notice her?). Cathy’s a real steal-the-show dog-and-pony act, that’s for certain. But now that she’s been appointed to run her little money-pit playpen, the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center, that’s not enough for the gluttonous queen of grab-it! Now she’s finagled her way to be the Centennial Committee chair. Look: She’s getting $30,000 + benefits to run the Fitness Center for the village of Ravena. The Fitness Center is in its first year of existence and isn’t doing all that well—call us cynical, but it’s a money pit (your money, Ravena taxpayers), it’s losing the membership battle, it can’t keep employees, and it just doesn’t have the numbers. Cathy Deluca has already managed two previous fitness centers to failure, and we think she’s doing the same thing to the Ravena Fitness Center. She can’t even manage a bunch of fatties in tights let alone a business operation!

old blond stripper smSo don’t you Ravena taxpayers think she should keep her bottom at the Fitness Center to make certain the public’s money is working for the public? No, that’s not the Deluca way! The public’s money in the Deluca world works for Deluca! Our advice to Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno is to keep Cathy D. in the Fitness Center and make her make it work. It’s YOUR duty and responsibility Mr Bruno, to the people of Ravena. You have to make your bad ideas and bad choices work! You have to take responsibility Mr Bruno! Do it now! Make Cathy Deluca put all her energy in making that fiasco, illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center work for the people and taxpayers of Ravena. Take responsibility for once, at least in the last year of being mayor of Ravena! And don’t forget the pending lawsuits that won’t go away even if Cathy Deluca resigns…OOPS! we meant “retire.” There are actually three (3) pending lawsuits involving Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Some of the claims involve criminal charges and also involve the Coeymans Police Department on charges of obstruction of justice etc. So when you hear the names Cathy and Jerry Deluca, think greed, hypocrisy, corruption, and lawsuit.

Again, this is one of our concerns with Bill “Moose” Misuraca’s prospective bid for the mayorship of Ravena: What is his, Bill’s  and his wife’s, Jena’s, relationship with the Deluca pair and how does that play into the agenda? Will their coziness with the Coeymanazi pair and all of their corrupt activities in Ravena-Coeymans taint any potential Misuraca administration? That’s an important consideration in our view.

We’d like to know Bill Misuraca’s position on the Ravena Health and Fitness Center.

We’d also like to ask if the Misuracas, the Ravena Halfway House Tavern received Cathy Deluca’s recent letter to selected Main Street businesses to attend the January 30th Centennial Planning Meeting for the “revitalization” of Main Street, Ravena. (Our most recent intelligence informs us that the Misuraca;s, Jordan’s Barber Shorp, Hoots Bowling Alley (Houghtaling), Stolz insurance, Citgo, Miller’s Automotive, all Main Street businesses, and others were not included in that mailing. Why not?)

In short: We want to know, we want to be convinced that if Bill “Moose” Misuraca is elected by a fair process that Bill will be mayor and not Jena or her cronies. We want to be convinced that if Bill “Moose” Misurac is elected to be mayor of the village of Ravena, that the same insider group or, worse still, more insider groups will take over village hall. If Bill “Moose” Misuraca is elected to be mayor, we want to be conviced Bill will be mayor; not Jena Misurac, not the RCS Sports Association, not Matt Miller’s teachers union, and not the Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry pair. In short, we want a mayor not a Coeymanazi fortress.


So, a lot is happening since the upheavals and elections in November 2013. It’s happening in Coeymans and in New Baltimore because residents are sick of the backstabbing, the unfairness, the lying, the corruption, the intimidation and the retaliation. It’s time now to fumigate Ravena village hall and get rid of the cockroaches who have been ruining a lovely little village and killing it slowly and painfully.

Village of Ravena residents have two caucuses coming up at the end of January:

  • The Democratic Caucus to nominate candidates for Ravena mayor and two village trustees. They’ll probably kiss Bruno’s ass and nominate him and his two leeches, Marty Case and Rocco Persico. That will be the death knoll for Ravena (and for Bruno and his two leeches Case and Persico). Residents don’t want Bruno back or his leeches. Nominating them in the Democratic caucus will be a big mistake. But then, Coeymans Democratic Committee Chairman Tom Dolan could’t get himself elected, and he’s a dud from the start. We just have to keep an eye on whether he’ll manipulate his Choices clients, his social services recipients, etc. He’s played some shadey games with ballots in the past, and skunks don’t change their odor. The Democratic Caucus is on Monday, January 27, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. in the Ravena Fire House at 116 Main Street, Ravena (one of the few occupied buildings left on Main Street, thanks to the democrats on the village council!)
  • The Republican Caucus will meet on Tuesday,January 28, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in the Ravena Fire House at 116 Main Street, Ravena. As we’ve already reported, Coeymans Republican Committee Chairperson Barbara Cumm expects to nominate Bill “Moose” Misuraca for the office of mayor of Ravena and two others for the 2 trustee seats. Ms Cumm appears to have weighed the pros-and-cons and we have to trust her wisdom. All Coeymans Republicans must attend the caucus and actively participate. Weighing all of the options, we recommend that Ravena Republicans support Ms Cumm’s choice and should support Bill “Moose” Misuraca for mayor of Ravena.
  • We have posted our options for mayor and village officers. If the Caucuses don’t see the wisdom in our selection, we will push for the residents of the village of Ravena to write them in on March 18. If they don’t get the political parties’ nominations to be candates, we and Ravena residents must run them as write-ins!

    An Example of a Write-in Vote It's that simple! Just print clearly and spell the names correctly!

Business as Usual or Change for the Better: Vote Now!

 


Village of Ravena Elections for mayor and two village council seats will be held on
Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
Why wait? At the end of this article you can vote for our candidates of choice for seats on the Ravena Village Council, or make your own recommendations. Help Save Ravena!


Our Worst Fears Were Confirmed:
Bruno, Case, and Persico Are Running Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico to Run Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico
to Run Again!

You Can Stop Them!

Tucked neatly away in the Ravena News Herald is the news we’ve all been waiting for…like the plague: Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno, Martin “Marty the Loser” Case, and Rocco “Seatwarmer” Persico have the gall to run again for village of Ravena public office. They apparently haven’t done enough damage to the village of Ravena and want a second shot at it!

Incumbent Ravena Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and his monkeys in Ravena Village hall have done their best to put Ravena into bankruptcy in every conceivable way: Secret deals with CSX (and then making believe they fixed things by planting a couple of trees), problems with sewerage, defaulting on village bills, creation of an illegal and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center, persecution of local youth and teens, violations of protected civil rights, suppression of free speech, crooked financial transactions with insiders, handing out jobs to favorites, abusing the community institutions, and the list could go on and on and on.

Ravena Needs Alternatives!

According to documents we’ve managed to get our hands on: The Notice of Democratic Caucus has gone out…that’s where the democrat candidates would normally be nominated…but the caucus is to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 27, 2014 at the Ravena Fire House, 116 Main Street Ravena. But the candidate have already been selected, at least according to the last issue of the Ravena News Herald. The three incumbent monkeys—Bruno, Case and Persico— are running again. UNLESS Ravena democrats show up and speak out to nominate alternatives. Lord knows Ravena needs alternatives!


Sidebar:

In the Meantime a New Warner-Deluca Scam

Bruno's Vixen

Have you heard? It must be election time! The Village of Ravena has recently sent out letters to “selected” “Main Street Property Owners” and “merchants” (Are there any left on Main Street?!?) but neglects other Ravena property owners and  residents having a stake in the future of the village of Ravena. The letter is inviting those selected property owners and “merchants” to attend a roundtable discussion and planning meeting to “revitalize” Main Street. What’s wrong with the rest of Ravena? You might well ask. But guess who are the contact persons for this “Centennial Committee”! Insiders, of course: Someone has put Cathy Deluca of Ravena Health and Fitness Center fame in as “Centennial Committee Chair,” and her sidekick, mayor Bruno’s “biatch”, Nancy Warner has been installed as a “Centennial Committee Member,” and sign the secret letter.

 When was this Centennial Committee established and with what village resolution? Who are the other members of the so-callled Centennial Committee, or is it just the dirty duette, Deluca and Warner?

Cathy Deluca Note the ARANY Sweater! (No Special Interests Here!)

Cathy Deluca
Note the ARANY Sweater!
(Probably wearing CSX panties, too!)

old blond stripper smIf you read this and suddently red flags go up and you have an anxiety attack, and feel overly suspicious, you really ought to. Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner are the very ones who met behind closed doors to secretly spend more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipement from another insider. They, Bruno and Warner (Deluca already was promised the job as director of the fitness center) harassed the RCS Community Library out of the space that was decided to accommodate the fitness center, and then allocated more than $105,000.00 of taxpayer money to fund the fitness center for the 2013-2014 budget year. In the meantime, Bruno and Warnerand their sockpuppets on the Ravena village council, Case, Bailey and Persico, went ahead and appointed Cathy Deluca as “director” of the fitness center paying her $30,000 in salary plus generous benfits. We believe the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, like two of Deluca’s other fitness businesses is a loser. Even before the fitness center opened, Cathy Deluca opened her big mouth and got the village of Ravena a couple of new lawsuits (Remarkably, this legal situation was reported in the Ravena News Herald!)!Ravena Mayor John Bruno and his monkeys Martin CaseWilliam Bailley, and Rocco Persico, also joined forces with Nancy Warner in persecuting Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens in the “Gazebo Fiasco,” again attracting another Notice of Claim and lawsuit for violation of protected rights and civil rights. Bruno and Warner ultimately forced the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center to close its doors when they convinced insider Robert Fisk not to renew the Center’s lease. In shortl, they threw Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens out on the streets, screwed a local do-gooder, and created another distressed property on Ravena’s Main Street. 

Now they, the Insiders Club in Ravena Village Hall, want to reinvent themselves as the Ravena Centennial Committee, headed by two arch-villains Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner, to “rejuvenate” Main Street Ravena. They’re the very ones who made Mainstreet Ravena a ghost town! And who’s going to pay for this “rejuventation?” We predict that this is just another smoke-and-mirrors scam that will benefit only the Ravena Insiders Club and no one else. If you fall for it…

Bovine bimbos Deluca and Warner, the so-called Centennial Committee are even so arrogant that they ask “invitees” to R.S.V.P. by January 27, 2014 (the telephone number given in the letter to call to R.S.V.P.: 756-5544, the number to Cathy Deluca’s Playpen a.k.a. the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!).

The Ravena Centennial Committee Mainstreet Revitalization farce will meet on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at 5:30 p.m. in the Ravena Village Courtroom. Please note also that the time, 5:30, on a Thursday has been selected because it will ensure that the fewest possible working people will be able to get to the farce. That’s one sure way of eliminating a good portion of the community. And these two trollettes are supposed to orchestrate a Centennial livestock show? Moo! To you, too, Deluca, Warner!

Ravena Centennial Committee Deluca & Warner

Ravena Centennial Committee
Deluca & Warner

We say any Centennial Celebration is a public affair from the planning to the execution. Any Ravena Main Street Rejuvenation is a public project and the public, not just a select group of property owners and merchants, selected by Guess Who!?! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! Any committee should be made up of public representatives not just Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! How dare they make Ravena and its village Hall their private playpens! How dare mummy mayor John Bruno hand over Ravena to those two aging vixens to be their private sandbox. How dare Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner exclude thepublic from their little party…AGAIN!!! (Remember the Ravena Health and Fitness Club fiasco!) Those two middle-aged megalomaniacs need to be put in their proper place!


 It’s Official: CSX

We knew it! They're CSX!

We knew it! They’re CSX!
Official Confirmation by 2 RHFC Members.

Back to alternatives….

Anyone who has been following this blog and reading our articles knows that we know what’s going on in this region. We watch, listen, receive intelligence, and report to our readers what they won’t get in the local sockpuppet media like the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, the Daily Mail, the Albany Times Useless. and others (most notably of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation and Hearst Corp.).

Our most recent poll confirmed several very important facts: The John Bruno regime is nearing its shameful end, and the Coeymans Police Department’s days are numbered (is that why Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is allegedly planning to retire at the end of the month, or is that just empty rumor? But why is he driving a RCS school bus?]

Coeymans Republican Party Chairperson Barbara Cumm has been sitting on her thumbs for too long and maybe the Republican Party should replace her before she does some real damage. We know the three flying monkeys are running again on the dem ticket but what are the Ravena Republicans doing all this time? We haven’t heard of any potential opponents to the Bruno mob from the Republican side. What’s the big secret? (We all can expect Tom Dolan to fall on his face again, as his past performance as a dem candidate and dem chairperson have been less than glorious.)

[Editor’s Note: We would recommend that the Republican Party name Barbara Cumm as Republican Party Chairperson emeritus, and get a real chairperson on board who will shake things up in Coeymans. So far Cumm has been dozing off and playing senile political games in the area. Retire Cumm and get someone with some cojones on board to clean up the Coeymans political scene. Stop playing a loser’s game!]

The Bruno mob seem to think they have the democrat ticket in the bag; the Republicans are quiet as mice. But we don’t care about labels like democrat or Republican; we care about what’s happening in the community, and the damage that the Ravena regime under Bruno and Warner have inflicted through their greed and nastiness. So we looked at the situation and looked at a couple of local figures who are honest and community-service minded residents who should be drafted to fill the seats in Ravena Village hall. Here’s your chance to vote in advance and let your voice be heard. The Bruno-Warner mob hates these choices, which makes them even more desirable. If Bruno and Warner hate you, you must be honest. Perhaps you’ll influence the outcomes in a positive way.

Help Save Ravena!

Vote below in each of the polls. It’s anonymous and you will be able to vote only once. Your vote counts here, too!
Once you vote in the polls below, click on “View Results” (bottom left corner of each poll) to see the overall results!

Are you a Dem or Rep, or Other?

Ronald K. Houghtaling Jr. for Mayor. A very experienced, articulate, former Coeymans town supervisor, who can make good thing happen! Mr Houghtaling knows his way around government and business. He also knows how dirty the local politics is and still keep his hands clean. Vote here for Mr Houghtaling for Ravena mayor.

Laszlo Polyak for Ravena Councilman. Mr Polyak is a local resident and property owner who has been an outspoken advocate in defense of RCS CSD students and local property owners’ issues, as well as a crusader for honest, accountable government. Mr Polyak’s credentials are impressive, too. The Coeymanazis hate him and have done everything they could to stymie his bids for public office in the past. Mr Polyak has an unparalleled knowledge of Ravena and the players, and their histories. If the Bruno mob  hate him and fear him so much, he belongs in Ravena village hall!. Vote here for Mr Polyak for Ravena village councilman.

Michael Fisher for Ravena Councilman. Mr Fisher is a local resident, parent, property owner and, if you’ve been awake through all of the hullabaloo about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the persecution of Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens at the hands of Bruno and Warner and the present village council, you’ll know that Mr Fisher is a self-less community-spirited individual. He serves on the Coeymans rescue squad and fire department and invested untold personal resources to get Ravena-Coeymans kids off the street, and into a safe, supervised recreation center. That all ended when Bruno and Warner did their worst to sabotage Fisher’s efforts and works, and the Coeymans police (Deluca and Darlington?) played their intimidation/retaliation games.

Bruce Roberts for Ravena Councilman. Mr Roberts already has experience on the Ravena village council but was unseated by insider action. He held the trusteeship now abused by Nancy Warner.

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Ravena Mayor Known!

(The percents in this poll show the voters’ first choice (highest percent), second popular choice, and third popular choice in descending order of percents. The percentages must add up to 100%. These figures do not show the percent of total votes the candidate would receive, just his popularity in terms of percent.)

Please note that none of the “candidates” proposed above have not been consultated about their willingness to ru,n or even if they would run. We drafted them because we feel they’d do well and the community would benefit from their experience and integrity. With your help, we can work to convince them that they should respond to the community’s invitation to serve. Of course, if you have other recommendations, please let us know and we’ll be pleased to post them and get our readers’ inputs regarding your choices, too!
