Campaign to Remove Denis Jordan from Public Office

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

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

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

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

 

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

  • Has abused and abuses his office and authority

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

  • Has abused his discretionary authorities as Town Highway Superintendent

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

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

  • Has abused employees of the New Baltimore Highways Department

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do your part and share what you know!

New Baltimore Town Officials are Absolutely Useless!

There’s a Bully in the National Historic District

New Baltimore's Idea of Service to Residents

New Baltimore’s Idea of Service to Residents

New Baltimore Supervisor Dellisanti, Deputy Supervisor Jeff Ruso, and Animal Control Officer Joe Tanner Refuse to Enforce Town Laws

We’ve asked this question time and again: What exactly are they doing in New Baltimore town hall, anyway? They seem to have their own agendas because they’re certainly not doing residents any big favors! They don’t even communicate among themselves and are totally oblivious to the welfare of the community they’re supposed to have been elected or hired to serve.

You see, not only did property tax bills go out on about December 28, 2017, demanding, rather extorting money from property owners to pay for local and county government and our ineffectual school  — the RCS Central School District whose Board of Education can find almost a million dollars to redo the athletic field with dangerous astroturf but teachers complain there’s no money for books! So we now get a bill for property and school taxes, and you have to really wonder what your dollars are paying for. Here’s the answer: INCOMPETENCE!

Now, in the National Historic District, residents are exposed day-in-day-out to a local resident’s barking dog. Robert and Bonnie Krug of bank robber fame, keep a dog that they use to bully the neighborhood with its constant barking from morning to evening, Monday through Friday, with special performances on Saturday and Sunday.

Residents have attempted to approach the Krugs but Mr Krug responds only with threats. Maybe that’s why the Town officers don’t seem to be able to stop the nuissance; they’re afraid of Krug! Has he handed them one of his famous notes, too?

Flyers are now circulating in the Hamlet of New Baltimore asking residents to join together to neutralize the nuissance and to force the Town of New Baltimore to enforce its laws, and to restore peace to the National Historic District, and compel the irresponsible, inconsiderate owners of the animal to control their animal.

Click here to read the stop-the-bully-flyer

A resident has already sent a copy of another flyer directly to the New Baltimore Town Board through Nick Dellisanti, Supervisor, Jeff Ruso, Deputy Supervisor and Joe Tanner, Animal Control Officer. You can read that letter by clicking this link barking-dog-letter.

Like a school bully, one person can’t really fix the problem. It takes group action. People simply have to get involved. Like a school bully, if the people with authority, the teachers and supervisors, don’t take action, someone else has to step in. We urge New Baltimore residents in the National Historic District to take action both to send a message to the New Baltimore Town Board and to the Krugs that residents deserve a quality of life and the services from elected officials and town employees for which they are paying. It’s particularly important now that the Town is sending out their demands that property owners pay taxes.

We have to ask, For what?

It's not much to ask for, is it? Then why can't the New Baltimore Town Board provide it? The Editor

Jim Youmans Needs to Apologize or Resign: Bully, Coward, and Abuser of Women

Bullies are Cowards: What more can we say about Jim Youmans?

crandall-head

Disgraced Judge Crandall Coeymans Town Supervisor

jim-youmans

Bully Youmans Town Councilman

Actually, quite a bit. But what we have to say about Jim Youmans probably reflects just as poorly on the voters in the Town of Coeymans. Why? Because you rid yourselves of Youmans several years ago but put the failed former supervisor back on the Coeymans Town Board. How’s that for stupidity?  What’s even worse is that along with Youmans, you put a disgraced village justice, who was disciplined by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct and was banned for life from running for any judgeship again, but you took that disgraced politician and made him Coeymans Town Supervisor. Yeah! Phil Crandall! (Click here to read a recent article on the Crandallites and Youmans.)

And now we’re in a presidential election year and we’re faced with two lunatics who want to be POTUS (President of the United States).

As one local resident, Laszlo Polyak, puts it:
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are pilots.
Hillary is piloting the Titanic and Trump is piloting the Hindeburg.
Our choice in November is:
Do we want to sink and drown or do we want to crash and burn?
Those are our choices?

hindenburgtitanic
It seems that the saying is true that local politics forewarns national politics. Why? Because we have two presidential candidates: neither of them is presidential: one is reputed to be a liar and the other a brute. Now compare that to Coeymans and we have a liar, Phil Crandall, and a brute, Jim Youmans. Unfortunately, Crandall and Youmans are both on the Coeymans town board and the damage they can do is further compounded by the fact that they have Coeymans’ own version of a dotty Bernie Sanders in the person of Dithering Tom Dolan. Our concern here, though, is the bully coward Jim Youmans, a disgrace to the Town of Coeymans.

Youmans is a used car salesman — Really!!! — and if that doesn’t scare the living bejezuz out of you, his reputation should. It seems Youmans hasn’t learned a thing since he was tossed out of the Coeymans town supervisor’s office in 2012. Back then he was known to bully fellow board members and he was especially brutal to female employees. In fact, when he was elected to the town board in 2014, one of the female town employees broke out in tears in anticipation of what the future held for them in Town Hall. Now is that right? Is that what Coeymans is all about? If it is you certainly have something to be ashamed of…starting with Jim Youmans.

Coeymans should be kissing any business owner’s ass just for being in Coeymans!!!

All history? Not at all. Just as a leopard can’t change his spots, Youmans can’t change his character; he’s still a bully and a coward. Here’s a recent incident we’ve received a report on:

This should have been Jim Youmans political career!

This should have been Jim Youmans political career!

A local business woman who, together with her family owns quite a lot of property in Coeymans, and who is doing a lot to clean up some of the eyesores that Crandall, Youmans and their cronies seem to be creating in Coeymans (just check out Coeymans Hamlet if you haven’t done so recently). The woman and her family recently made several requests to the Coeymans Building Department Officer, John Cashin. One of those requests was regarding verification of the number of occupancy units in one property and the other was relating to water and sewer bills. Occupancy and water and sewer seem to be the perennial open sores in Coeymans but so is incompetence in Town Hall, too.

Well, Mr Cashin didn’t seem to be able to manage the simple English that was involved in the requests, and managed to confuse the two in his response. Seems he’s having some difficulty with the word “temporary.” The word “temporary” means ‘of short or limited duration; not permanent,” if that helps, Mr Cashin. But at least Mr Cashin is reasonably courteous, even if he’s not a rocket scientist and a bit thick.

But Hey! Coeymans, you guys put those dumbasses where they are.

Estrogen-Man: Abusive men usually are hiding their inner woman.

Estrogen-Man:
Abusive men usually are hiding their inner woman.

We’ve read the resident’s correspondence to the Town of Coeymans in which the resident is asking for clarification of what the Town is doing with the request since April of this year. We gather from the correspondence that no one, elected or employee, has much of a clue what is going on. The resident’s request has been bounced from the Town of Coeymans Board to the Village of Ravena, back to the Town of Coeymans. In the meantime, the resident is attempting to pay a tax bill! Of course, as many of you property owners in the Town of Coeymans and the Village of Ravena know, neither the Town of Coeymans nor the Village of Ravena have ever been able to sort out anything with regard to water and sewer bills! It’s just a vicious circle and many residents are infuriated by the incompetence and indifference in Town and Village Hall! Unfortunately, Mr Cashin, too, is afflicted with dyslexia and overall confusion. Listening and understanding don’t seem to be nor have they ever been a strong point in Ravena and Coeymans. But Hey! Coeymans, you guys put those dumbasses where they are.

But back to Bully Jim Youmans. John Cashin is the town employee responsible for building issues, and he’s the town officer who should be responding and cooperating with the resident business owner to resolve this issue in a fair and just manner.

Youmans: “Pay up[,] crazy lady.”

If you said that to a man, Youmans, you’d be brushing your teeth in your butthole!

Coeymans Town Board Member

Coeymans Town Board Member

After all, Coeymans should be kissing any business owner’s ass just for being in Coeymans!!! Crandall, to his credit — probably because he hasn’t a clue how to answer otherwise — correctly passed the resident’s correspondence to Cashin, who responded, albeit a bit confusedly, he did respond incorrectly but respectfully. But here’s were bully-coward Jim Youmans has to get his fat ass involved, and adds his abusive two cents: Youmans somehow manages to absurdly respond to Cashin’s email to the resident and in a two-sentence regurgitation of stupidity and abuse writes: “Pay up crazy lady” and signs his stupidity with James C. Youmans, Councilman, Town of Coeymans. That says it all for Coeymans and its town board. What’s worse is that Youman’s cc’ed practically the entire town hall with his stupid abuse!

We’ve reminded Coeymans voters again and again of the kind of people they’ve been putting in office, while asking “How can you be so stupid?” Perhaps we have the answer when we just consider the simple fact that perhaps these jackasses in Town and Village Hall are, in fact, representative of the people of Ravena and Coeymans, with very few exceptions. Maybe WE are missing the forest because of the trees. People like Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Warner, Misuraca are in office because they truly represent the people of Ravena and Coeymans. Hear the banjos yet?

What Youmans seems to forget is that he is a public servant. What he seems to have forgotten or never knew in the first place is that we expect him to respect residents and to do everything possible to be helpful to residents and businesses. Youmans, however, continues to be the ignorant brute he has always been. He’s a bully, a coward, an abuser of women, and a boil on Coeymans’ ass. He needs to go!

Youmans on Coeymans

Youmans on Coeymans

We demand that he make a public formal apology to the woman he refers to as “crazy lady.” We don’t need a disrespectful, ungrateful bully on our town board. Either the Supervisor or the entire board must demand he apologize, or they must distance themselves from him. He should be shunned by the community for his disrespect of women and his disgrace of the office of Town Councilman.

We demand that Jim Youmans make a written public apology for his disrespect of a woman business owner!

It’s like we took two steps forward when we rid Coeymans and Ravena of the likes of Dumplin’ Gregory Darlington and his darlings Dirty Hands Jerry and Cathy Deluca, and dumped Tom Boehm. But now it looks like we took three steps backward, and we have three replacement clowns: Crandall, Youmans, and Dolan (again!). Will it ever get better? At least Coeymans knows how to recycle its trash.

clowns

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan

Keep Union Lacky Matt-the-Mutt Miller Out of the County Legislature!

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

Don’t Let that Happen!!! Vote for MENDICK!!!

To send this article to a friend, a relative or to an e-mail contact, just copy this link and paste it into an email: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-2vx

Break the chain of corruption!

Matt-the-Mutt is part of the Albany Democrat reform movement; you know, the Give-it-all-Away party — but only if what they’re giving away is yours. Any time someone starts barking about reforming and changing things even before he’s close to being elected signals DANGER! And that’s exactly what Matt-the-Mutt Miller is doing. He thinks he’s in the legislator’s chair already and is bragging about what he’s going to change in the Albany county legislature. He’s a damned egomaniac and not much more. Only a halfwit would consider that corrupt megalomaniac for anything other than dogcatcher.

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

Matt-The-Mutt Miler 's a Loser!

Matt-the-Mutt Miller is a Loser!

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

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

Matt-the-Mutt<br>(2014)

Matt-the-Mutt (2014)

Matt Miller(2015)

Matt Miller (2015)

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

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

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

Coeymanazis Use Gestapo Tactics at RCS Schools

Coeymans Police Are Going Too Far: Students Report Their Lockers Being Searched By Police Using Dogs While Students are In Class!

lacey-searchParents allowing their kids to be victimized in this manner is sending a clear and unmistakable message to our young people: We don’t trust you! We can’t control you! You can’t be trusted! We’ll let law enforcement intimidate and harass you while we have some time for ourselves! We had fun making you but now we need to have some time on our own. Sure, we’ll let the Coeymanazis baby sit. Why not?

POLICE STATE GOES TO RCS SCHOOLS

Superintendent Allen McCarney is obviously in league and working with or for the Albany County District Attorney, Pudenda David Soares or some other moron in the Albany County DA’s office and local police in planning the search. McCartney is turning into a real company boy now that he’s in the pockets of the teacher-union-owned-and-taxpayer-paid-for RCS CSD board of education.

WHAT'S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?! is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

WHAT’S NEXT, MCCARTNEY, DARLINGTON?!?!
Is your next trick feeding the kids to the dogs?

Of course, McCartney and his NYSUT and Coeymanazi keepers would tell us that they don’t not see the search as a violation of Fourth Amendment constitutional rights protecting citizens against unlawful or unreasonable searches. Of course, in our drug-ridden, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirt ghetto schools the searches are to protect the students from themselves and the many drug dealers in a and around the RCS high-school, and to staunch the epidemic of drug-overdose deaths that have been occurring in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools. Of course the searches are not animposition and in fact, the students, teachers and parents welcomed law enforcement efforts to harass and intimidate the students. Must make the Coeymanazis feel real good to give the rest of the world the impression our schools are packed with drug pushers and drug users. Makes the Coeymanazi p.d. really look good now, doesn’t it?

This, dear readers, is another cowardly and scandalous attempt by the Coeymans police department and their Nazi friends to harass and intimidate the local community through the students. How dare they go into our schools with police and dogs and execute searches. Where are you parents, anyway? Do the students have to take matters into their own hands to get justice and fairness and not continue to be treated like inmates instead of young adults?

First it was putting a Coeymans police officer who turned out to be the school harlot after a short time, carousing with a wrestling coach and causing a break-up of the coach and his girlfriend. That same RSO officer ended up copping a DUI. Of course, nobody in the RCS CSD Administration foresaw the potential for the female police officer to give every male student an erection but the wrestling coach got her first, we think. But on school property, in his office. Well, that’s the rumor around the school.

So, what’s the deal McCartney, RCS CSD school board a.k.a. New York State United Teachers board at RCS? Find anything you liked?

Intimidation of Students Now Makes Better Zombies for Tomorrow

OR

How to make the kids like the parents

dog and lockersIn an article printed in the Times Union, “Supreme Court: Drug dog sniff is unconstitutional search” (by Jesse J. Hollan of the Associated Press (AP), Tuesday, March 26, 2013) the author writes:

“The Supreme Court ruled…that police cannot bring drug-sniffing police dogs onto a suspect’s property to look for evidence without first getting a warrant for a search, a decision which may limit how investigators use dogs’ sensitive noses to search out drugs, explosives and other items hidden from human sight, sound and smell.
Justice Antonin Scalia said a person has the Fourth Amendment right to be free from the government’s gaze inside their home and in the area surrounding it, which is called the curtilage.”

Shouldn’t our students and schools enjoy these same constitutional rights? Shouldn’t a warrant be required based on good solid probable cause that a search is necessary? Maybe, but not in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, where the US Constitution has been suspended and is not applicable to residents and citizens in Ravena-Coeymans Selkirk!

If this happend anywhere else, somewhere where the residents aren’t pussy-whipped by local Coeymanazis, all hell would have broken loose. And it has happened elsewhere and all hell did break loose (hence the Supreme Court decision). But not here in RCS! Anyone care to speculate why we bend over and ask for the joy stick?

These bobo-crime stoppers are real heros; they go after cripples, old ladies and kids. Balless wonders that they are! At a cost of more than $1 million a year to Coeymans taxpayers, we think that money should be spent more responsibly. Don’t you? Eliminate the Coeymans Police department and all of the dingbat vampires hiding there!

We also have received reports that Coeymans polic e officer and RCS CSD RSO Danielle Crosier, you know the Coeymanazi who wrecks patrol cars, can’t pick a lane and stay in it, DUI/DWI copette, the one who’s allegedly carrying on with the RCS wresting coach in his office (she’s apparently not getting enough down at the station). Yeah, the same Danielle Crosier who is pulling kids out of the halls and searching them at the school. Here we have the hot-to-trot harlot, the Coeymanazi p.d.’s kitten in uniform, demonstrating firsthand how a police state operates and what it feels like to be publicly humiliated for nothing. She’s also the Coeymanazi p.d.’s example of morality, too. Yes, RCS parents, that’s the word on the street and in the halls of RCS about your fine RSO and your fine Coeymanazi p.d. What do you have to say about that? Want an investigation? An investigation will either get her fired or jailed (depending on who’s she doing and where), will get the wrestling coach fired, or an investigation will clear both. We think an investigation is the way to go. Don’t you?

We are expecting updated information and documents and will post the updates as soon as we receive them.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the “Summary” Deluca writes:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Hippo

The Hippo

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

Jerry Deluca Mugshot

A face you can really trust

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Served with Notice of Claim: School Violence


Please send this link to your contacts who may be interested in this topic. Link: http://wp.me/p2jPFe-1OT


Abysmal Graduation Rates, Crooked Teachers and Self-Serving School Board, $42 Million Budget, NYS Mandates for Anti-Bullying Training, a New State Law, the Dignity Act, and…

Still Violence in the RCS Schools. WHY?

But it Does if you're a Student in the RCS Schools

But it Does if you’re a
Student in the RCS Schools

That’s an important point of investigation that is very likely to be made when the facts of a recent Notice of Claim come before the courts, and the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District has to cough up an explanation Why? after a history and a pattern of student-on-student violence, attacks, ambushes, even suicide attempts have been allowed to continue!

An outraged parent recently served a complex Notice of Claim on the RCS-CSD asking just those questions and demanding, among other things, answers. Seems that a school district with a budget consistently larger than that of local municipalities combined and the biggest employer of morons in the area should be able to come up with the right answers. But looking at what we have to deal with in terms of teachers (if Martin Case or Matthew Miller or Brian Bailey are to be taken as examples) or support staff (like Rocco Persico, a school psychologist on the RCS payroll) or even principals like Pam Black or  Brian Bailey, well-liked (Why? Because he’s a dolt! A wingnut! That’s why he was made assistant superintendent for curriculum: to get the dolt, the wingnut out of the school! Wake up!), the causes are obvious.

Before the most recent board of education elections when the board was literally drowned with new teachers-clique members by re-electing of all people James Latter (known best for his abuses and breaches of confidentiality), Peter Brown of the Mary Partridge-Brown/Matthew Miller odd-couple (Now it appears it’s a threesome. Patrick E. Brown, of Brown & Weinraub, an Albany law firm, Mary Miller’s — Oops! Brown’s — husband, was elected but we know all too well who’s really on the RCS board of education: Matthew Miller, double-dipping teacher and teachers union rep), and newbie Jason Hyslop, a space-occupying lesion on the board, similar to a Edward “Teddy” Reville (drowsy-dog; and his name is not “Teddy”). So out of 9 seats on the school board, 6 are now occupied by teachers or member married to a teacher, or teacher tools (Brown & Hyslop). Can you tell where this board is heading? Does Latter’s wife or Miller’s wife get the principal’s position they’ve been hankering for but never got because they’re incompetent?

Well, back to the Notice of Claim… (Click here to read it in it’s entirety: Polyak Notice of Claim polyak_redacted; see also Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim).

For six years Mr John Vadney and his colleagues on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District board of education fought against the teachers clique on that school board to redirect attention from the administrators’ and teachers’ pockets to student safety and education.  While the teachers clique had the majority on the board under the closet guidance of the teachers union, New York State Teachers United (NYSUT) and its local representative, Matthew J. Miller, a high-school science teacher, who at the time was double-dipping to the tune of $18,000 a year from the school budget and on a reduced teaching load (and still is) so that he could (and still can) do his union work on the school budget tab, members James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and previously Gerald Deluca and Cathy Deluca (subsequently voted off the board) saw to it that the teachers and administrators were well taken care of while graduation rates in the RCS high-school plummeted and school violence thrived.

Once the non-teachers were voted into the majority, positive things started to happen in the RCS school district and Mr John Vadney and his team were able to make considerable progress in getting rid of the incompetent local teachers’ choice superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith and hiring Dr Allen R. McCartney to come in and clean things up. Matthew Miller and the teachers clique vehemently opposed McCartney’s hire but were overruled by those with the best interests of the district, Vadney, Robbins, Sylvester, Krzykowsky, and Lukens.

Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique.

dirty little lies

The teachers clique and their moles on the Coeymans police department (Gregory Darlington, Kerry Thompson (Darlington’s brother-in-law, and Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca) attempted everything to discredit the non-teachers on the board of education from framing the then board president, John Vadney, to intimidating Jeff Lukens when he came to his son’s defense (as any father would do), to libeling and slandering Rodney Krzykowski for exercising his civil rights, to even inciting bullyism or retaliation on the children of board members. Readers will certainly recall how one student thug ambushed and injured Mr Vadney’s son as he entered the high-school—but that was kept neatly under wraps and, when Vadney’s wife filed a Notice of Claim for the incident, the “Friends of RCS” the teachers clique electioneering arm, the Delucas, Mary Partridge-Brown (wife of lawyer Patrick Brown, now a RCS board of education member) spread the misinformation that Vadney was suing the school district. Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique. For the “Fiends of RCS” if it’s illegal or immoral or unethical, it’s OK. And they were elected to the majority on the board of education and promptly took full credit for all the good that Vadney, Sylvester, Robbins, Krzykowski, and Lukens were able to get jump started—such as improving the graduation rates and getting school safety underway, complying with state mandates for anti-bullying programs and training, etc., financial responsibility, accountability, and transparency — all opposed by the teachers clique, James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, Edward “TeddyReville, on the board and now joined by Patrick Brown (that is, Matthew Miller and NYSUT) and James Hyslop!

prevent child abuseThe Vadney board was student-centered, not teacher-centered as it is now. The Vadney board focused on keeping students on track, and above all, safe! But the teachers clique, getting more and more defensive and desperate as time went on, unanimously opposed anything the non-teachers proposed, And it’s not as if no one ever heard of the bullying in the RCS schools or of the Dignity Act passed by the NYS legislature in order to make school personnel accountable and responsible for preventing bullying. Anyone with two eyes to see with and two ears to hear with couldn’t possibly have avoided the regular pleas of Mr Laszlo POLYAK at almost every RCS board of education meeting pleading with the superintendent, the teachers, the administrators to do something about the violence in the schools. Mr Polyak was a regular speaker addressing the superintendent and the board asking when they were going to comply with the requirements of the Dignity Act (principals and school administrators were dragging their feet when required to start-up training programs and enforcement of the Act in the RCS schools).

And then Mr Polyak’s own daughter is brutalized during a recess period while supposedly under the supervision of an aid. And she was attacked and injured by a well-known offender who was known to have done the very same thing a number of times in the past!

So, readers, when gentle, then in-your-face New-York-style persuasion doesn’t work and you’re ignored, your child is injured, it’s time to take some serious in-your-face New-York-style legal steps. And that’s what Mr Polyak was forced to do when he filed his Notice of Claim. The violence in our schools must stop and if it takes a $10 million lawsuit to do it, What the hey! Go for it if it’s the only think this school district understands (besides its $10 million the teachers union and the crooks in the school system won’t get their dirty hands on!)

The Vadney Board made it happen and got the wheels rolling but the Vadney board didn’t have enforcement powers in the schools, the administrators, teachers and principals had that. Nor did the board have police power or the authority to compel the local police, the Coeymans Police Department, to do their job and get proactive in terms of prevention of the violence and enforcing or collaborating (with what?) in compliance with the Dignity Act! If the RCS schools were non-compliant, slow to implement the procedures, indifferent to the violence, the Coeymans Police were just as guilty. Some of the duties of the town of Coeymans Police chief Gregory Darlington, according to his job description, are:

  • Administers and directs the operation of the police department;
  • Recommends organizational changes to the Town Board and directs necessary procedural changes;
  • Keeps Town Board abreast of major developments in law enforcement that affect department activities;
  • Represents the department at conferences and meetings;
  • Thorough knowledge of New York State Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, Vehicle and Traffic Law and all local laws and ordinances, regulations pertaining to police work.

Now we don’t think it’s stretching it when we ask: When the Coeymans Police Department has to respond to student-on-student violence, kids with guns in the trunk of their cars in the school parking lot, suicide attempts on school property, known bullying, coaches’ abuse of athletes and parents, violations of FERPA confidentiality (right James Latter?), reports of kids being denied boarding school buses and having to walk along Route 9W to get home, etc. wouldn’t you think the police chief would wake up and smell the coffee—the blood? Wouldn’t you think that the police chief would take the initiative and get proactive with acknowledging the problem? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would reach out to the board of education, to the school district with a plan? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would make an appearance at school board meetings to reassure the public that the problem is a priority for the local police? Maybe. But not in the Coeymans Police Department and not with police chief Gregory “DoDo cop” Darlington. And not with Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca lurking and, together with teacher/union rep Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller,  harassing local women at BoE meetings.

DUH! Wadda I do? The Coeymans PD's Response

DUH! Wadda I do?
The Coeymans PD’s Response

So the Coeymans Police Department is included in the recent Notice of Claim and rightly so.  If the Coeymans Police Department would act more like a community public service  organization rather than a Gestapo police state band of thugs hell-bent on retaliation, intimidation, and violation of protected civil rights, maybe the Coeymans Police Department and its police chief could avoid being named in lawsuits. Nah! That would require a Coeymans Town Board that did its job, that is, supervise the Coeymans Police Department and it’s police chief, Gregory Darlington, and do some disciplining where needed. But then, if the Town Board started coming down on the Coeymans Police Department, the board members and their families wouldn’t get special consideration and treatment, the felonies and misdemeanors wouldn’t disappear, would they?

 So what’s the deal Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach, board members Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Dawn Rogers? When are you going to start doing your jobs and ensuring the Coeymans Police Department and its wimpy chief, Gregory Darlington, are doing their jobs, or else?

Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo

dirty tricksAnd then there’s the village of Ravena. The RCS middle and high school are in the jurisdiction of the village of Ravena, aren’t they? So what’s mayor John Bruno and village of Ravena councilpersons Nancy Warner, Martin Case (himself a teacher at the high school!), Rocco Persico (a school psychologist at the high school!) or William Bailey doing while all of this is going on? ANSWER: Not a damned thing! CORRECTION: They’re too busy whining about their water treatment and sewer bills from the town of Coeymans. Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo; they’re too busy cruising the gazebo at weird hours of the nite and getting the Coeymans police in a feeding frenzy over the “No Loitering” law (the subject of another Notice of Claim because the law is unconstitutional and unenforceable!). That’s the extent of the village of Ravena’s response to the violence!

See the recent article (click on the link):  Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim.

More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead

 We have already provided a link to the complete Notice of Claim served on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Coeymans Police Department. If you’re interested in reading it, just click on the link above. We’ve redacted the minor student’s name from the NoC but it’s in all other respects complete as filed. More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead. Maybe then the RCS CSD, the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the village of Ravena will take these important matters more seriously.
