Some Food for Thought: Make the Change!

Attention All Independence Party Members
Caution: All Other Parties

Since the disgusting performance of the major political parties, the Republican and the Democratic, and the thuggery and bullying that went on during the so-called campaigns, which were nothing less than a neonazi display of mindlessness, we’ve been taking a serious look at the political party options in our Central New York region, and have come up with a real opportunity for voters who have had enough of being castrated and deprived of their voices in local and regional politics.

The Answer: the Independence Party.

We are making this statement based on our investigations of the Greene County New York Independence Party; we have serious reservations about the leadership of some of the surrounding counties, particularly Albany County, but Schoharie, Ulster, Columbia counties need some prodding to support each other. That’s a problem with their leadership (their committee chairs and executive committees) not with their membership. Independence party members, that is, the real people who register Independence Party are the salt of the earth. Real people, working hard to better their communities, and sick of the lies and stuffed shirts the major parties offer at each election.

True, there are some genuine people in the New York State Legislature, and one name pops up right away, Assemblyman Chris Teague, a Republican supported by the Independence Party, who is a genuine people  person. We’d like to hear from readers if there are any others like him. Just for kicks and giggles.

The Independence Party in Greene County, NY, has almost 2000 registered voters countywide, and that doesn’t count the non-Independence supporters from the other parties and those supporters not affiliated with any political party! The Greene County Independence Party has voter power big-time as well as being attractive to those Americans who want to put the “I” back in INDEPENDENCE, and leave those others who live in dependence on the failures of the Republican and Democratic Parties and those parties riding on their coattails, like the Conservatives and other useless fluff on the political scene.

Greene County’s Independence Party family is an active and outgoing group, who reach out to those neighbors looking for truth and integrity in politics, community organizations, everyone without exception or discrimination or snooty arrogance. The Greene County Independence Party is there to help rebuild our communities!

Some of the other counties in New York (like Albany, for example, who sold the Town of Coeymans down the river, backed a maverick sneak for Greene County Sheriff, among other scurrilous backroom political freak show acts), Greene County is up front, open, welcoming, honest. Anyone who knows Smalbany knows that if that were not true, we’d be singing another tune. Trust us!


IMPORTANT NOTE

Greene County Independence Party

There are those out there, mostly the puppets of the major parties, who have nothing good to say about anything if it’s not going their way. And there are those out there who are sucking us dry when it comes to our rights and liberties, even our guaranteed right of freedom of expression (free speech).

We mention this because in our extensive research we have found some absolutely ridiculous claims being made in the media regarding the Independence Party’s name, because it contains the word “Independence,” which they want to change! They claim that Independence in the party’s name “confuses people” and causes them to register thinking that they are registering as voters independent of any political party, that is, as non-party affiliated voters.

Anyone with half of a brain would discard such rubbish not only as idiotic but also offensive to the voters registering. Such a statement would mean that voters are ignorant, can’t read, or are totally stupid. It’s a half-hearted, desperate attempt to try to further confuse the people. We could use the same stupid reasoning when talking about the “Republican” or the “Democratic” parties, but we’re far too genuine to play their idiotic games. After all, just about every foundation document in our nation’s history contains the words “republic” or “independence,” less frequently “democracy” or “democratic.” They are part of the American political vocabulary and carry huge meaning and significance. But does that fact come up as confusing people?

When you register to vote please understand that when you register as an Independent you are registering as a member of the Independence Party; if you want to be completely “independent” of any political party, that is, if you don’t want to be associated with any party, you need to register NOP or no party affiliation. There is a difference and we want you to know about that fact.

The Editor


Everyone wants Independence votes!!!

In Greene County, the Independence Party includes almost 2000 registered voters in 12 communities. That’s a lot of votes and is the reason why candidates running for office at all levels run to the Independence Party to get the Independence voters to support them. This is extremely important for candidates who are concerned that their own party, the Republicans or the Democrats, won’t carry them through the election, or refuse to provide needed support, and they won’t have the votes to get elected. Everyone wants Independence votes!!!

Independence Party Members Working to Get their Own Independence Candidates on the Ballot

Enough is enough, people. Independence Party members in Greene County, at least, have to get together and stop giving the farm away! Why are Independence Party members wasting their time handing their votes to failing parties’ candidates? Why aren’t Independence Party members working to get their own Independence candidates on the ballot, and finally clean up local and regional politics for a starter?

They’re waking up and saying, “Hey! We have great numbers, a great vision, a great group of people working for the community. We can do it!”

The answer is likely that the Independence Party members simply don’t know the power they have! it’s the best-kept secret out there in politico-land. Why? Because, unlike Greene County Independents, the leadership in the surrounding counties see a good thing for themselves when they can play power-broker games with the major parties and their candidates. Most of the other counties and the State Committee are out of touch with everyone and everything but themselves. Greene County Independents are some of the first to wake up and smell the tires burning. They’re waking up and saying, “Hey! We have great numbers, a great vision, a great group of people working for the community. We can do it!”

Smalbany and many others agree, although some of those “others” are running scared and trying their best to kill any so-called “third party” from exposing the major parties’ failures. One such villain is Mario Cuomo, you know, the monkey-faced, angry, enraged governor of New York state who lets his only supporters out of the jails to endanger the lives of the rest of us. Cuomo is out with a vengeance to do a hatchet job on the third parties. He and his party handlers are running scared. They see the writing on the wall!

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, remarks in a speech: “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” and his audience gasps (August 15, 2018).That’s the kind of leadership our major parties provide!

Here are some numbers from the Greene County Independence Party. Note that Greene County is a small county in terms of population, and is historically Republican (old Republican, that is). So, when you get numbers like these in the major population centers in Greene County, it means something big is happening:

When you think about it, in most local elections a candidate is elected by 1 vote! Just think of all the recent elections where the major parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, couldn’t even come up with a candidate to run against the incumbent or the other party’s candidate, and then think that if the Independence Party ran a candidate, a real person, a people’s candidate, how different things would be.

Only Voters Change Things, Not the Politicians

The major parties are always preaching change but they never come up with any. Only the faces change; the circus goes on, business-as-usual. The fact is, only voters change things, not just registered voters but registered voters who truly want to make a difference, who truly want change, and who realize that they have the power right now right in their hands to make those changes. One of the first changes is to change your party affiliation from Republican or Democrat to Independence Party. Send the bastards a message!

Be Proud: Be Independence!

Fact is: The only thing you give up is your vote in the primaries which is not really a choice at all, because the party is telling you who you have to choose from. In the elections, you don’t have to vote for any major party candidate; you don’t have to vote for your party’s choice. You can vote for anyone you like! Use your head, not some label forced on you. Be yourself, appear at town and village meetings, be a good citizen and an even better neighbor, and be Independent. You’ll shine in the crowd, and you’ll be happier with yourself.

Mr Acker was a devoted and committed man to the best interests of the Greene County Independence Party, his community, and his neighbors throughout Greene County.

If they want to be elected, we’re going to grill them! Re: George McHugh.

Incumbent Town of Coeymans Supervisor, Phil Crandall, has accepted our invitation to be interviewed, we are now negotiating a date and time for the interview.

In his email response to our proposed interviewer, Mr Crandall writes (September 3, 2019):


“Thank you for reaching out to me in regards to an interview. I am happy to schedule that and should be able to get back to you after the holiday with my exact availability and some possible dates. Thank you again”


We are now calling on Mr George McHugh, a candidate expecting to run against Mr Crandall this November, and hoping to take the office of Town Supervisor, and to take control of the Coeymans Town Council.

Our Reaction.

McHugh is campaigning behind an ambiguous campaign slogan, “Take Back Our Town,” which makes us wonder who is taking back whose town, and what’s going to be left for small businesses and for any remaining residents, after the so-called Friends of Coeymans all get their share of the post-election booty.

But in all fairness, we want Mr McHugh to have a fair opportunity to clarify some issues and to show that his commitment to transparency is no bullshit. Back to  our invitation to Mr McHugh. Here are our proposed questions for Mr McHugh:

Dance, Georgie! Dance for us, Georgie!

Proposed Interview Questions
George McHugh
Candidate, Town of Coeymans Supervisor

  1. You were elected to be Town of Coeymans Supervisor back in 2001, served one term, and then did not run for a second term. Why was that?
  2. The question of the Blaisdell Farm property and your housing project on that property has been the subject of a number of inquiries, particularly the fact that the property was annexed by the Village of Ravena at about the time you were Coeymans Town Supervisor, or shortly after you left office. Would you please comment on the circumstances of that annexation and how you benefited from it?
  3. You were appointed to a federal administrative law judgeship. It would appear that you are no longer serving in that capacity. Can you tell us what happened to the judgeship?
  4. Your campaign slogan is “Take Back Our Town,” from whom do you expect to take it back?
  5. Who are the Friends of Coeymans? Do they have names?
  6. According to our information, you serve in several capacities as a paid consultant or employee of the Carver Companies. Will you be resigning those positions if you are elected?
  7. How will your cozy relationships with Carver Laraway and the Carver group of companies affect your fitness to be Supervisor of the Town of Coeymans?
  8. You were outspoken in your opposition to the Town of Coeymans clean air law which purported to ensure good air and environmentally friendly air quality but you campaign on a promise to improve quality of life in Coeymans. That law was passed. How does opposition to clean air advocate quality of life for Coeymans residents?
  9. In terms of improvement of quality of life, and other than opposing clean air, what other proposals do you have for QoL improvements?
  10. In you campaign ads you suggest that you will do a number of things if elected. But our investigations show that you would not have the authority to make good on those promises, since most, if not all of those promises are state level powers. What do you have to say about that?
  11. As former owner of the Ravena News Herald, can you please comment on your relationship with Mark Vinciguerra and the Ravena News Herald, now owned by V. as part of his Capital Region Independent Media?
  12. Do you currently hold an ownership or financial interest in the Ravena News Herald?
  13. What do you feel you can offer Coeymans that current Town Supervisor Crandall cannot?
  14. What would be your major criticisms of Mr. Crandall and the current Coeymans Town Board?
  15. Given the questions regarding the role of the Coeymans Police Department in the death of 19-year old Riley Kern: What would your plan be for the Town of Coeymans Police Department.
  16. Hypothetically, if you were Town Supervisor, how would you good faith in responding to the many questions in the Riley Kern alleged wrongful death case?
  17. There is evidence that acting Coeymans Police Chief Mr. Daniel Contento and Coeymans police officer Ian Foard had handled the Riley Kern investigation not only unprofessionally but professionally negligently. We are aware that you have been in contact and communicating with Mrs Kern about her son’s death. If elected, what would you as Town of Coeymans Supervisor, in cooperation with the Town Board that would be controlled by your group, plan to do to support Emily Kern’s efforts to get recognition for her son, and to make amends for the circumstances of his death?
  18. What would be your five priority TO DO items for immediate action upon taking office, if you were elected Town of Coeymans Supervisor?
  19. What would be your five priority TO UNDO items for immediate action upon taking office, if you were to be elected Town of Coeymans Supervisor in 2019?
  20. Apart from any new industrial developments in the works, and given the small business situation in the Town of Coeymans, what would your plan be to encourage and to support small business creation and development in the Town of Coeymans, particularly in and around Ravena, the Hamlet of Coeymans, and the beautiful waterfront available to the Town and its residents and small businesses?
  21. Will you be continuing your law practice if elected to be Coeymans Town Supervisor? If so, would you continue to provide legal services to Carver Laraway and the Carver Companies?

*****

Well, Mr McHugh and his running mates are running on a number of positions, one of them is transparency. Well, in our opinion, if transparency is such a big concern for McHugh and his group, then he won’t have much of a problem with our questions. Or will he? We’ll find out and when we do, you’ll know, too. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please read our recent McHugh-related articles:

Russian Mafia in Our Back Yards?

Please don’t Mug Me! Just Pot Me!

The Russians are Coming!!!

To McHugh or Not to McHugh.

It’s your community, too, and we want you to have a say in all of this. That’s why we’re asking our readers to send us their questions for consideration. If your questions are selected, we’ll include them in the interview of Mr McHugh.

As we go forward with the interviews, we’ll post names and questions for the candidates we choose to interview, and ask for your inputs.

Of course, we’ll keep you updated and informed on how the candidates respond, and we’ll share their answers with our readers.

Please send your questions to rcs.confidential@gmail.com. You can also leave a public comment on this blog with your questions.

Shyster Meets Psycho: Brendan Baynes and Zachary Stahlman a.k.a. Fat Cat Antiques

UPDATE

We chose to dig a bit deeper into this case and had a contributor review the digital recording of the trial proceedings at which Zachary Stahlman made a complete ass of himself and the court. Luckily for Lee Davis, the idiot town justice presiding over the three-ring circus called a trial, was not re-elected. If he had been we would pursue a formal complaint before the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct to have him censured and removed from the bench! But back to Stahlman…

According to the trial recording, Zachary Stahlman states under oath that his father, Charles “Chuck” Stahlman, returned the keys to a lease property after  sonny-boy Zach Stahlman broke the lease. Charles Stahlman returned the keys accompanied by a New York State Trooper. Zachary Stahlman states in his testimony under oath  — not that an oath means anything to a Stahlman — what sounds like “My father is friends with the State Trooper.” Here we have a guy who is apprehended passing counterfeit $10 and $20 bills to purchase furniture for his antiques business (Fat Cat Antiques), arrested by the New York State Troopers, arraigned in court for passing funny money, and now his son admits under oath that his dear ole dad is “friends with the state trooper[s]” ?!? By the way, what happened to the case against Stahlman Sr. for passing the funny money? Did that go away, too?

Now, does that help to explain why the investigations for theft of dealer plates and drive-by shootings might have gone cold and no arrests were made? Does this mean that if you are friends with a New York State Trooper or with the troopers, that you can do anything, including pass funny money, steal dealer plates, shoot at people in their offices, and, despite contradictory testimony and clear breach of contract, win a court case?

Now, it’s important that our readers understand that we are not judging the Stahlmans nor are we suggesting that they are guilty of any of the crimes that were under investigation and allowed to go cold by everyone from the Greene County Sheriff’s Department to the Coeymans Police Department, to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Troopers (who refused to investigate), and the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, who definitely had a say in the matters, but we are posing some very interesting questions after the review of the trial recordings.


Our slogan is this: After the first lie all the rest is a lie. 

The Shyster

Our research shows that Brendan Baynes is not entirely honest, if not an outright liar. He misrepresents his practice and is a bit of a moron, besides.

“Tubbs” Baynes’ Nemesis
Did Michael Biscone tell Baynes to get out of town?

Up until recently, that is, up until a meeting with Michael “Tubbs” Biscone in a local diner, Baynes had an office in Ravena, New York, on 130 Main Street. That was changed after the meeting with “Tubbs” Biscone, when Baynes’ shingle disappeared from 130 Main Street. Here’s why Baynes is a moron: Anyone who would open a law office in Ravena almost directly across from the law office of one of the biggest (hence, “Tubbs”) shysters in Albany County has to be stupid. Furthermore, anyone who opens an office in Ravena, home to the Biscone family of shysters and major members of the Ravena Incest Club (Biscones related to the Brunos related to the Persicos, etc.) has to be stupid.

Brenden Baynes and his special version of corruption: Corruption of the Law…

When Carmen Warner was fired from the Albany District Attorney’s office for misconduct, it was Michael “Tubbs” Biscone who took her in, no doubt to give the freak a job but also to forge an alliance with Ravena Village Hall, where Carmen’s mother, Nancy Biscone — OOPS! We meant Warner — is a “trustee” and a witch-on-a-stick and Carmen’s father, Ravena village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, Albany ex-cop, taken off the street for misconduct, and the very Hal Warner who stabbed Phil Crandall, then a part-time Ravena village justice and full-time Coeymans town justice, forcing him to resign in disgrace, work their corruption. The Ravena Incest Club does take care of its own. But let’s get back to Brenden Baynes and his special version of corruption: Corruption of the Law.

It seems moron Baynes tried to carve into Biscone’s territory; that’s a definite No! NO! The Biscones have had a choke hold on Ravena for at least two generations and they have no intention of sharing with anyone. So Baynes is sent scurrying with his furry rat tail between his legs.

Baynes seems to be a bit uncertain where he’s located…

Baynes left Ravena in a hurry and set up his practice across the county line, in Greene County, in the Town of New Baltimore. He now occupies what appears to be a repurposed chicken house or something similar, and it appears to be deserted at all times, at least every time we’ve stopped by to check it out. Yes, my gullible friends and neighbors, Brendan Baynes Esq. has his office in Greene County, not Albany County, and in the Town of New Baltimore, not in Ravena. He’s a damned phoney liar, a fraud.

Baynes Law Firm Chicken Coop Office on Rt 9W, New Baltimore

Baynes seems to be a bit uncertain where he’s located because he still uses a Ravena address, despite the fact that he’s more than a mile away in Greene County and nowhere near Ravena. So why is it that Mr. Baynes is trying to make the impression he’s in Ravena when he’s not even in Albany County? If he’s not aware of that fact, he’s got some big problems. If he is aware of that fact he’s got a bigger problem: he’s a liar.

Baynes is a bit shaky on how many years he’s been practicing …

Baynes not only uses the Ravena address, which is phoney, he also uses the Rt 9W New Baltimore address as a Ravena address, which is also phoney. What would you expect from a phoney?

130 Main St in Ravena is occupied by Alexander Varga CPA and Anatriello Insurance LLC. Not by Brendan Baynes! Baynes gives this address in some of his online ads.

Baynes not only doesn’t know where his offices are located he’s a bit shaky on how many years he’s been practicing his bizarre kind of law. On some of his advertising you see 15 years, 25 years, 28 years, even 31 years, so there’s quite a lot of questions about Mr. Baynes’ math, too.

Bozo Baynes

Forget the “team” in his hyped ads Baynes is a team of one.

We are also concerned about Bayne’s mental state. You see, he refers on his website using “our team,” “we,” and similar language that would give you the impression that he has a whole menagerie of sharks in his practice. Well, our inquiries show that he’s a loner. Yes, it’s just him. Forget the “team” it’s a team of one. [Editor’s Note: A contributor has written to Baynes asking for the names of his partners,his team members. As of this writing Baynes has not responded.]

Baynes also says his practice includes personal injury, commercial law, estates, medical malpractice, traffic and tickets, trial law. That’s quite a lot of specialization for one guy and it’s all crappola! He’s listed as a “general practice” attorney. That’s all. We think he’s misrepresenting himself. In fact, if you Google Baynes the first hit that comes up is “traffic tickets,” “speeding tickets!”

A reader recently contacted Baynes after seeing his sign and reading his misrepresentations because the reader wanted an attorney who could work on a case against a local municipality, a case of property damage.

Here’s his response:

“Unfortunately, I am not interested in a property damage claim against a municipality as I am very busy pursuing multiple complex litigation matters and cannot take on what would be sure to be a significant devotion of time and effort to your friends case.”

Nobody seems to be pursuing Brendan Baynes for his expert legal advice…

No, Mr. Brenden Baynes was too busy defending traffic violations and speeding tickets. Easy money and totally no-brainers: no-brainer attorney, no-brainer client, no-brainer court. He may be “pursuing multiple complex litigation matters” — maybe that’s lawyer-speak for ambulance chasing — but his parking lot is empty, and there’s a CLOSED sign on his chicken-coop office door; nobody seems to be pursuing Brendan Baynes for his expert legal advice, except maybe Zachary Stahlman and Fat Cat Antiques, a.k.a.

The Psycho

Most of our readers will recall our articles about the Stahlmans, Zachary and his father Charles, of Fat Cat Antiques (Glenmont) associated with Stahlman’s Fat Cat Transport in Coeymans Hollow, NY. The father, Charles Stahlman, has a reputation for shady used car deals and for passing counterfeit $20.00 bills to buy used furniture for his so-called “antique” (= junk) business, Fat Cat Antiques.

Maybe that’s what Zachary Stahlman and his daddy Chuck Stahlman are using to pay Brendan Baynes, Esq., counterfeit $10 and $20 bills. Baynes is likely stupid enough to take them and run…maybe Michael Biscone will take them and launder them for Baynes for a hefty fee.

Zachary Stahlman

State Police apprehended the elder Stahlman when it was discovered he was passing counterfeit $10 and $20 bills to purchase used furniture for resale at his Fat Cat Antiques business. Stahlman was arraigned in Bethlehem Town Court, released on $10,000 bail, and went to court on December 6, 2017. Apparently nothing happened. So our question was always, “What happened?” [Cops: Man bought furniture with fake cash and Troopers: Man uses fake money at estate sale).

[Editor’s Note: You can’t make this stuff up. Fat Cat Antiques registered address is listed as: Fat Cat Transport LLC,476 Shady Lane, Coeymans Hollow, NY 12046. They even have “shady” in their address!!!]

We can only think that he turned state’s evidence or is an informer. Anyone else would be doing some sort of time for circulating funny money. What do you think?

Well, as it happens, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and his son’s, that is, Zachary Stahlman’s criminal history includes traffic violations and he was a suspect in a drive-by shooting and possibly other crimes in Coeymans and New Baltimore. He also likes to play major victim and violate contracts like commercial leases etc. Watch out for baby Neanderthal; he’s following in daddy Neanderthal’s footsteps.

We covered all of these stories in our articles: Criminals Thumbing Their Noses to Law Enforcement? Why? (2017/01/31); Let’s Get Back to Exposing Local Dysfunctional Government (2017/04/24); Local Law Enforcement Might Need Some Help with the Math: 2 + 2 = Stahlman! (2017/02/05).

The younger Stahlman, Zachary, entered into a lease with a local landlord to open a so-called flea market and then broke the lease and sued the landlords for the return of the security deposit, which was paid by his father, Charles. Whether Charles Stahlman used counterfeit $10 and $20 to pay the security is uncertain.

Brendan “Bozo” Baynes

Well, when the landlord refused to return the security deposit for multiple violations of the lease term because Stahlman cooked up code violations, gave a couple of days notice, and abandoned the commercial property he occupied as Fat Cat Antiques, never heating it or complying with numerous other terms of the lease, Stahlman had the balls to ask for his security deposit back and later sued in New Baltimore Town Court.

The case was heard by ex-judge Lee Davis, who admitted that he had no experience in commercial leases, but heard the case anyway, deciding in favor of Stahlman despite the clear provisions of the lease contract.[1] The landlords appealed without an attorney (BIG MISTAKE) and the appeal was rejected.

The Greene County Court before which the appeal was brought found that there was no error in law. Former Greene County Court judge Terry Wilhelm, formerly the Greene County District Attorney, decided the appeal but never notified the parties. (His clerk took the blame for this serious oversight.)

Since Lee Davis was such a failure and disappointment as New Baltimore Town Justice — he was voted out of office after only one term —, the case was returned to New Baltimore but now before New Baltimore town justice Joseph Farrell, who sympathized with the landlords and was at a loss how the matter could have been so mishandled, but he inherited the case and that was that.

Zachary Stahlman then proceeded to take things into his own hands and started not only harassing the landlords during the appeal process but even served demands for payment on the landlords’ other tenants, using the Albany County Sheriff’s Department to do his unlawful dirty work.

Oh, did we mention that Zachary Stahlman was a suspect in the Coeymans drive-by shooting and in the theft of the landlord’s dealer plates? Again the cases went cold, and the investigations closed. Why is that? Cold-Case Coeymans Police Department and Cold-Case Greene County Sheriff’s Department; see our articles above. Taxpayers pay for law enforcement and all law enforcement can manage is to be Albany and Greene Counties’ major supporters of Dunkin Donuts and Cumberland Farms, not to mention a major threat to local wildlife (see our article on the Coon-Killer Cops of Coeymans, and our several follow-up articles on the incident.)

Zacchary Stahlman’s harassment now continues through his new attorney, Brendan Baynes.

Charles Stahlman
Police Mug Shot

We should remark at this point that several months ago, Charles Stahlman wrote to this blog begging us to remove the posts mentioning his son, saying, that his son was ‘unable to work, was “fragile,” that he “loves his son and would do anything for him.” Our response was that if his son was so fragile, how is it that he can harass hard-working people, who, unlike Zachary Stahlman, break their backs working only to be taken advantage of by people like Zachary Stahlman, who then furthers the abuse by dragging them in front of an incompetent town justice, Lee Davis, to further abuse them. Furthermore, if he, Charles Stahlman, “loves” his son and would “do anything for him,” why didn’t he teach him to obey the law, to act like a civilized human being, and to conduct his business honestly. We can understand a parent’s concern for their offspring but Mr. Charles Stahlman’s conduct is anything but good example and his son’s, Zacchary’s, conduct is not much better.

Shyster Meets Psycho

So now we have a situation where Psycho meets Schyster: fragile, socially-aberrant Zacchary Stahlman (But can you blame the kid, considering his background?), probably still unemployed, still harassing others, the shining apple of his criminal father’s eye, now commissions a failed two-bit shyster, Brendan Baynes of somewhere between Albany County and Greene County but definitely not Ravena, New York, an expert in all legal specialized practice but who prefers to handle speeding tickets; a member of a team of law professionals consisting of one shyster, Brendan Baynes, who practices from a repurposed chicken coop that appears never to be open. Baynes who had the audacity to open an office just across the street from the arch-shyster of Ravena, Michael “Tubbs” Biscone, just blocks away from Tubbs’ brother John and niece Sarah Biscone, only to be forced out of Ravena to Greene county where he now appears to be practicing from what appears to be a repurposed chicken coop.

Bozo Baynes certainly isn’t working for nothing even if he is forced to practice from low-rent digs

Well, if psycho Zach Stahlman doesn’t know when to stop, “fragile” as his counterfeit-passing dad claims he is, and “unable to work” as his wheeling and dealing dad claims he is, then it must be the junk shop Fat Cat Antiques that is financing the harassment. Bozo Baynes certainly isn’t working for nothing even if he is forced to practice from low-rent digs.

Bozo Baynes would stoop to anything to make the rent on his chicken coop office.

Bozo Baynes, hot-shot attorney that he is, apparently has taken time out of his busy schedule of “pursuing multiple complex litigation matters” to take on two-bit Zach Stahlman’s case, chasing after about $200 in interest and fees which the County Court told them they couldn’t have! – Gosh! Those traffic tickets and DWIs sure are complex litigation matters, aren’t they, Brendan?

But we have to ask the question why a fraud like Bozo Baynes would leave his “complex litigation matters,” that is, his speeding ticked business, to take on a case that’s worth, well, pennies? Is he that hard up for real work? What’s the deal people?

Zach Stahlman is an angry sociopath who just won’t let things go.

Greene County Court Judge, former DA, Terry Wilhelm

But wait a minute! Didn’t we just say that Zach Stahlman and Fat Cat Antiques (Charles Stahlman) don’t have a case! The case was decided, appealed, and the appeal was decided. But not according to Bozo Baynes, the legal genius who thinks the former DA and now county judge Terry Wilhelm have made a mistake and should reverse their decisions regarding interest and fees. You see Bozo Baynes would stoop to anything to make the rent on his chicken coop and “fragile” Zach Stahlman is an angry sociopath who just won’t let things go.

So “fragile” Zach or more likely counterfeit-fan Charles Stahlman hire Bozo Baynes to tell the court that Baynes thinks they don’t know what they are doing, and that the Stahlman and Baynes know more about the law than the county court judge does. The filed a motion with the County Court to allow re-argument of the court’s decision as if the court should start trembling in fear and awe of Bozo Baynes and “fragile” Zach Stahlman.

Our advice to “fragile” Zach is get some psychotherapy. Our advice to Bozo Baynes is get a real job. Our advice to county court judge Terry Wilhelm is to stand by his decision and tell both Stahlman (Fat Cat Antiques) and Baynes to take a long walk off a short pier. Don’t worry about the sharks, though, they have more sense than to consume garbage.

We would also recommend that the Greene County DA, Joseph Stanzione, review Brendan Baynes conduct and recommend that the 3rd Judicial District, Professional Conduct Committee discipline Baynes his shoddy conduct, abuse of judicial process, and unethical business practices by taking advantage of poor “fragile” Zachary Stahlman and failing to consider his background and sociopathic condition.

Do you think the Stahlmans will be organizing another drive-by shooting after reading this article?

A Moving Message from Diane Millious, Coeymans Town Clerk

A Tragic Story that Marks the Decline of a Community

Phil Crandall has been out campaigning with his pet confidential secretary Cindy Rowzee and misinforming voters! Crandall and Rowzee have been saying how lovely their relationship has been with veteran Town Clerk Diane Millious. Ms Millious denies that statement and says that Crandall and Rowzee are lying, misinforming potential voters! That certainly doesn’t surprise us!

“C” is also for Crandall

Phil Crandall may be facing charges for forging signatures on his ballot petitions, which were falsely witnessed by his son-in-law! People have come forward saying they never signed the petition. Very serious allegations and we’re waiting to see what Mr David Soares does with the case. And that leaves the question why Phil Crandall used the Town Attorney for a private matter when he didn’t want to show up for the court appearance. A violation by Crandall using the Town Attorney for a private defense AND an ethical violation by Town Attorney Pastore!

Phil Crandall my be up on serious charges of obstruction of justice by leaking a confidential police investigation memo to the perps.

Crandall was forced to resign from his position as Coeymans Town justice because of corruption; Coeymans voted him in along with a couple of other recycled failed politicians in 2015. We have to ask what dishonesty and corruption got them into office after they were either disgraced or lost previous elections.

And Why? was Phil Crandall too busy to show up for the Meet the Candidates event at the school? Coward that he is, he didn’t want to face voters with tough questions.

Although we reported extensively on their corrupt histories, Comanches preferred to make fools of themselves. Here are some of the previous articles we published in 2015, as background:

Diane Millious, Coeymans Town Clerk for more than a quarter of a century, opens up Why? she’s leaving public service. Her statement , original made privately to friends on Facebook, is being reprinted below with permission. We’ve inserted the names, where necessary, so that everyone is clear about whom she is talking.

Ms Millious’ statement should make some important voting decisions for you on November 6, 2017, election day.

Election Day is almost here and this is the first time in 16 years that I won’t be on the ballot. The decision not to run was not an easy one. It was made partly because of a desire to pack up and move south but mostly because of what I have had to endure over the past two years. I have worked with several Supervisors and Town Boards over the years, some easier to work with than others, I stress the words work with.

The current Town Board with the exception of two members has been impossible to work with. This Town, your Town is currently being run by three people [Phil Crandall, Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan], three people are making all the decisions, don’t be fooled by it being a five member board. Many of the decisions have been made behind closed doors without discussion with the whole Board, the remaining two have been blindsided several times.

There were many occasions when I asked to be placed on the agenda only to find out on the night of a meeting that I was not on the agenda. After this happening several times I found that in order to be heard I had to speak during Public Comment. I have been met with resistance and denial for my needs in staffing my office. The workload requires myself, my Deputy and two part-time clerks alternating days. That has been my staff for 16 years, this Board decided that my office was overstaffed, mind you the Supervisor [Phil Crandall] and one on the Board members [Jim Youmans] are hardly ever in Town Hall to see what my office or any other office does. However the Supervisor’s Office [under Phil Crandall]  is currently staffed by the Supervisor [Phil Crandall], his full-time secretary [Cindy Rowzee, now running for Town Clerk], his full time clerk [Nita Chmielewski, former disgraced Town Supervisor], a part-time human resource/payroll clerk [Linda Ziegler], and an Internal Control Officer & accountant [Sarah Morrison, Darryl Puritan at about $100/hour] who frequently work on weekends. I might add that most of these positions are paid twenty plus dollars an hour with increased hours and pay rate in next year’s budget.

I have been disrespected, scolded and downright bullied by the current Town Board [Phil Crandall, Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan]. Up until the last two years I have run my office as I saw fit to suit the needs of the public, these past two years have been difficult on me and my staff.

My former Deputy was going to finish out my term with me, she chose to retire at the end of May because of the turmoil.

Having said all this, it has been a privilege and an honor serving the Town of Coeymans. I took great pride in helping to meet your needs. Make sure you vote on Election Day and make informed decisions.

Since Phil Crandall and his Democrap croneys Jim Youmans and Tom Dolan were elected in 2015, Coeymans Town Hall has become a cesspool of disrespect, lies, corruption, and incompetence. Coeymans doesn’t need this sort of garbage running things, going on spending sprees to pad the pockets of Mr Crandall’s little harem in his office, while cutting staff and salaries in other departments to the point of abuse!

On November 7, 2017, election day:

Vote Row “B” all the way! “B” is for Better.

Coeymans deserves better than Crandall, Rowzee and DeLuke!

VOTE STRAIGHT ROW “B”
VOTE FOR A BETTER COEYMANS

Democracy is Dead!

This article will set you straight on the fact that democracy even at the local level is dead! We are told by political committees who will be our choices in the voting booth. That’s not democracy. We are not provided with the least bit of information on the candidates’ education, training, experience, qualifications for the job until the very last minute, if at all. That’s not democracy. Locally, and it seems nationally we have become a one-party system in a one-horse town. That’s not democracy. How has the term “public servant” taken on new meaning and how has it been re-coined “self-servant” by our so-called “elected officials? How is it that we taxpayers, voters, citizens are abused and insulted by the egomaniacs we elect based on their lies and misrepresentations. How they, once in office, ignore us until next election year. We see that locally, at the state level, and nationally. We can and much change the situation where we can: LOCALLY.


Democracy is DEAD in New Baltimore, Coeymans, Ravena, New York, the U.S.A.!!!

Do we really want schizophrenics running our towns, cities, the nation?

We still call them public servants but they have other ideas. They have their mega-egos and their personal agendas. They’re all warm and cuddly Dr Jeckyl when they knock on the door asking for your support and vote; they are voted in and they immediately turn into Mr Hyde. They no longer know us! Do we really want schizophrenics running our towns, cities?

Why is it that we continue to elect people we totally don’t know? Why is it we don’t demand a résumé or a public town hall meeting to ask these people questions? Why is it we let political party committees and political party-run election boards to tell us who we have to vote for? That’s why we get crooks, rejects, scoundrels, and ding-a-lings running for office and then you elect them to spend your tax money, judge you and sentence you, to control your lives. Now does that make any sense to you? You are always bitching and moaning but won’t lift a finger to help yourself. Now does that make any sense? You are constantly bitching and moaning that nobody listens, and then you elect people who don’t give a damn! Now does that make any sense? Keep staring into your smartphone and make some more virtual friends on Facebook. That really solves our problems!

Let’s face it, government, especially local government, the government that most directly affects our day-to-day lives, is an abysmal failure.

They don’t seem to be able to understand that public service is not self-service…

First, it appears that only egomaniacs want to run for public office these days. Hardly any of them have a clue about the job they say they want to do for us. Most aren’t even schooled in government and most come from blue-collar jobs. Some are absolute rejects. If they do come from a business background they don’t seem to be able to understand that public service is not self-service, and that the taxpayer is not the same as a retail customer. If our local elected officials and our local public employees don’t look at us as if we’re the enemy, they look at us as if we are an ignorant consumer. The end result is that we lose all respect for them and they for us; instead of public servants we face public enemies—until election day rolls around again.. Nothing gets done but they get paid. Can you see what’s wrong with this picture?

Here are some local examples:

We have a very unpopular Superintendent of Highways, Denis Jordan, in the Town of New Baltimore. The word on the street is that he’s incompetent, ignorant, and a crook. He has a history of using public employees and town equipment for private favors. We’ve reported on that several times already, and we’ve provided details and evidence. He has no clue as to road planning, design or construction. Yet, he’s been re-elected at least 3 times; the last time he won by a mere 1 vote. The town residents are basically to blame for this deplorable situation because they have become apathetic and don’t come out to vote; they’d rather stay home, complain, and start another rumor. That always works in the American democratic system.

Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan literally intimidates and ignores the Town Board, and frequently brings in his own people to confront the Board, including his own attorneys (paid by the taxpayers of New Baltimore. Who else?).

When the Highway Superintendent Mr Jordan isn’t tinkering with the town equipment, which he apparently does for a great deal of the time he is at the Town Garage, he’s using Town equipment for questionable local projects, while ignoring work necessary to avoid accidents, injury, and Town liability. He’s caused damage to private property that goes ignored by the Town Board, and he’s created numerous roadway hazards in the Hamlet that no one, including the Highway Department, want’s to even mark off for the public’s safety.  The New Baltimore Town Board ignores that too. Mr Jordan is receiving more than $53,000 a year in salary, plus benefits (many of us don’t have), and apparently plans to collect a pension. He’s just barely graduated high school, has no job-specific training, doesn’t attend any continuing education courses, conferences, workshops, and is generally a non-achiever. Chances are he’ll collect a fat pension if he’s not investigated and criminally charged, and his pension either revoked or reduced to cover the damage he’s done in the Town.

That’s one example. Let’s move on to the New Baltimore Town Board, currently comprised of a Town Supervisor Mr Nick Dellisanti, a boardmember and Deputy Supervisor Mr Jeff Ruso, and three boardmembers Shelli vanEtton, Scott Brody, and Chuck Irving. Actually, the names are not really important but most Town residents don’t know who is on the board so we’d like to refresh their memories.

New Baltimore is a one-party town; Democrats in New Baltimore can’t even cough up a candidate to run against Ruso.

Dellisanti, originally from downstate, was a newcomer to local government 4 years ago, ran for the 2-year supervisor position and won a second term. Barely got his feet wet in the 4 years on the job, and now has decided he does not want to run again. Deputy Jeff Ruso, who ran for supervisor once and lost, ran for town board member along with his sidekick Dellisanti, and won a seat on the board. Ruso is now running for town supervisor again but here’s the tickler: Ruso, a one-time loser, a Republican, is running unopposed for the office of New Baltimore town supervisor. The Democrats and other political parties in New Baltimore can’t even cough up a candidate to run against Ruso. So, you see, the situation is just as we’ve been describing it all along: Democracy is Dead, for at least for sale in local and national politics. Voter apathy has led to a one-party town; no choice. And you think this is getting better?

The New Baltimore Town Board has no balls; they are derelict in their duties and obligations to the residents of the Town.

We mentioned that New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan has been getting away with murder in the town, and the Town Board does nothing, despite the fact that they have certain options under New York State Law. Another option would be for the Greene County District Attorney, Joseph Stanzione (R), to get involved and do an investigation of the operations of the Town Highway Department. Another would be to call in the New York State Comptroller for a special audit. Of course, these are all options that depend on honesty, integrity, and good practices, none of which are to be found in the Highway Department. And the New Baltimore Town Board has no balls; they are derelict in their duties and obligations to the residents of the Town by ignoring the wrongs done to taxpaying residents! All the Town Board has to do is ask for help in dealing with Jordan…what are they afraid of?

New Baltimore taxpayers have to pay the bills but are getting nothing in return except abuse, excuses, indifference, and ding-a-lings.

Here’s an example of ding-a-ling local government: In June 2017 we sent an email to Mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca of Ravena, Supervisor Phillip Crandall of Coeymans, and Supervisor Nick Dellisanti of New Baltimore. The request read:

Good morning, Town and Village executives:

It’s an election year again and we’d like to follow up with you to ask you to please provide your self-assessment of what you’ve accomplished during the past 1-2 years of your term in office.

Would you please provide us with a short list of the top ten items you feel are your most significant accomplishments during your most recent 1-2 years in office. A short description of how the most important of these items and how the item benefits your constituents, your residents and the taxpayers of your town or village would be very helpful.

Please limit your list for up to 10 items. If you list less than ten that’s fine too.

Please be advised that these items will be published. If you choose not to reply we will note that fact too. Please reply before Friday, July 14, 2017.

Thank you for your attention.

The Editor

We followed a month or two later asking again for their list of accomplishments, hoping to be able to publish them prior to the November elections. The only response we got was from New Baltimore Supervisor Nick Dellisanti, to his credit, but what he included in the list was a bit surprising (See the actual list here.)

One item was “change the wording from ‘mandatory’ to ‘voluntary'” in the Comprehensive Plan, changing the number of zones on Route 9W from six to four. Big news, right? A word change! Now that’s an accomplishment!

A couple of years ago, the Town handed over one of the town parks, the Cecil B. Hallock town park, to a Greene County travel baseball team, the Outlaws, who, for their own purposes “overhauled the park.” Mr Dellisanti thinks that handing over a town park to an outside baseball team is an accomplishment. We differ in that opinion.

Mr Dellisanti states that his administration lowered taxes three years in a row but is not specific on that one. More on taxes and assessments below. But lowering taxes in view of the disadvantages caused to taxpayers living in New Baltimore is only fair. But Mr Dellisanti thinks this is an accomplishment worth noting.

Another item listed by Dellisanti is the creation of the “Friends of New Baltimore Recreation Committee,” whose purpose is to raise funds for park improvements. Like handing them over to outside baseball teams and cricket associations? Parks are a nice, not a necessary. Well-planned, designed, executed roadwork is a necessary. We don’t have that in New Baltimore. Effective drainage to prevent property damage is a necessity. We don’t have that either in New Baltimore.

Speaking of parks, Dellisanti mentions a $50,000 grant from our dunce friend George Amadore, to provide “handicapped-accessible playground equipment” for the District 2 park. WTF!!! “Handicapped-accessible playground equipment”? What the F**K is that??? $50,000!!!! What in hell are handicapped persons doing on playground equipment, anyway??? Will someone cue us in on this one, please!!! (Editor’s Note: New Baltimore population, especially youth, has been dropping for years! Who is using this playground equipment? Is this one of the town’s top priorities?) Now that we have physically challenged individuals frolicking in our New Baltimore parks along with the out-of-town baseball and cricket teams, who’s insuring these handicapped people using the “handicapped accessible playground equipment?” Mr Amadore? Mr Dellisanti? Mr Ruso?

Yeah! For rubber cells for the New Baltimore Town Board, and spendthrift NY Senator George Amadore (R)!

The fact that the town obtained “0% financing of a $2.6 million project for a new wastewater treatment plant” sounds really great but where is all that wastewater coming from? All $2.6 million dollars of it that needs treatment. Only a portion of the Hamlet has a sewerage system but no water to speak of. The wells are iffy and most go dry during the summer. The town failed several years ago in its attempt to bring a public water system to the Hamlet. 0% financing or not, this is a loan that has to be paid back by taxpayers.But let’s ask again, whose wastewater is being treated? Interest-free or not, someone’s going to have to pay back the loan.

Dellisanti lists “anticipate grant of $650,000 to reduce the cost of the new wastewater treatment plant.” Sorry, but “anticipate” doesn’t cut it, Nick; neither does the $2.6 million loan for the same plant. Give us public water and we might be able to swallow this when we don’t have to spend $30/week for bottled water to drink and cook with! Waste water treatment plant? There’s no water to flush with!

This one, Number 8 in the List of 10 accomplishments, really got us shaking our heads: “Brought Capital District Cricket Association to District 3 Park.” Yes! You read “cricket association.” And No. 9, “New Baltimore will receive $25/day for weekend games” thanks to the Capital District Cricket Association. Wow! $25/day!!! That will just about cover opening and closing the park gates! (By the way, that’s what a resident would pay to use the park facilities for a private function. The New Baltimore resident would also have to leave a $25 deposit, too..) New Baltimore is quickly running out of parks to give away.

The Town of New Baltimore now has a so-called “Veterans Committee” that hosts an annual — that’s once a year, friends — luncheon for town veterans. The town has installed a veterans memorial at the Town Hall. While we have every respect for veterans, several of us being veterans ourselves, we do question the expense of a veterans memorial at our quaint, miniscule, but cute Town Hall. We’ve been to the veterans luncheon and must say that the organizers work hard to put on a nice event for many of our veterans, almost to the man over 70 years old now! But, really, is this a town government accomplishment?

We asked for 10 items but Mr Dellisanti, apparently anxious to get the politician’s last extra in, gave us 11. No. 11 reads in part, “received grants for AgFest, Veterans, and our Summer Recreation Program” through county legislator Pat Liner and the Bank of Greene County. Really, how much? Wouldn’t this be county and private enterprise, a bank putting back into the community it’s already gouged bloody? And where’s Pat Linger getting the money? From taxpayer dollars! He’s not digging into his pockets to pull out the moula! Is this an accomplishment? We’re not quite sure what this does for the Town of New Baltimore, a town teetering on the edge of implosion and hemorrhaging residents.

Sorry, but all things considered and while we are grateful to Mr Dellisanti for at least taking the time to respond to our request, we have to admit that none of the above really addresses the real problems in the Town of New Baltimore. In fact, most of it is pretty useless: handing over parks to out-of-town baseball teams, cricket associations, getting loans, and useless memorials and programs. Come on, with our problems?!?! Is that REALLY all the New Baltimore town board can accomplish?

The Mayor of Ravena and the Town Supervisor of Coeymans could not provide us with any accomplishments during their current term of office. NONE. Because they have NONE.

The fact is that Mr William “Mouse” Misuraca, mayor of the hovel village Ravena, and disgraced-judge-now-supervisor of Coeymans Phillip Crandall, who has the nerve to run again in November, did not respond to our request for accomplishments. We assume that their refusal to respond was that they don’t have the brains to make up any accomplishments or they actually can’t think of any. Regardless, the bottom line is that the Mayor of Ravena and the Town Supervisor of Coeymans could not provide us with any accomplishments during their current term of office. That’s pretty sorry stuff. But it’s local politics and elected officials working for us — so they’d like us to believe.

NONE!

Actually, if the observable facts can be relied on, Mr Misuraca and Mr Crandall are, for once in their corrupt lives, being truthful: They have not provided a list of accomplishments because they have NONE!

We have nothing further to say about Mr Misuraca’s and Mr Crandall’s failures as leaders; their non-existent accomplishments speak volumes about their failure.

Residents and property owners in the Town of New Baltimore have been complaining to and suing the Town for years for damage by or abuse or corruption at the hands of the New Baltimore Highway Department under Superintendent Denis Jordan. We won’t go into details here because we’ve been reporting on the scandals for some time now. Just search the articles on this blog.

One example of the absolute depravity of the dysfunction in the New Baltimore Town Hall is clearly visible in the New Baltimore National Historic District, on New Street. The street and surrounding areas were neglected by the Highway Department for years. Drainage ditches were filled with debris and overgrown with weeds, culverts rotting in the ground, rutted road surfaces working like canals for runoff water, storm drains lying buried, and dead-end culverts, “Where’s this go? I dunno!” If you take a short drive to the National Historic District and down New Street, at the end you’ll see the result of one property owner’s tax dollars at work: negligence and lack of maintenance of the road owned by the Town of New Baltimore and the responsibility of the New Baltimore Highway Department has destroyed a private residential property. The negligence caused runoff water not to go to the unmaintained ditches or to the buried storm drains into the dead-end culverts. No! All of the above conducted the water into the foundations of the building and the building is now collapsing, totally useless! And the owner’s investment? That too, is zilch.

But for almost ten years the Town and the Highway Department were being informed of drainage problems and poor maintenance. Over a year ago the owner of the property demanded that the Town Board and Highway Department inspect the area and the damaged building. They inspected. They did nothing.

True, the Highway Department came down and dug things up, put in a new culvert, installed two culverts under private driveways, but the bottom line is that they didn’t fix the original problem; they even made it worse, and created new dangerous conditions. The Town board regularly informed. Nothing done.

New Street was paved under contract to Callanan Industries under the supervision of Superintendent Jordan. It cost almost $200,000 to pave several Hamlet streets. It was a nightmare, a terrible mess! A number of dangerous conditions were actually created by the paving and Mr Jordan’s “supervision” (when, if he was present). The Town and Highway Department notified. Nothing. Remember the drainage into the foundations of the residential property? Well, the paving work actually created new conduits for water flowing into the foundation.

The Town Board and the Highway Department were made fully aware of the damage and the problems over a year ago; they actually came down to New Street and were given a grand tour of the defects and deficiencies. In fact, it was Deputy Supervisor Ruso who found the dead end culvert and couldn’t find where it led, and Deputy Highways Superintendent Scott vanWormer who dug up the storm drain buried under 3 inches of soil, remarking “In 17 years on the job I never knew that was there!” Former building inspector and code enforcement officer Steve Mantor addressed a letter to the owner noting “community concerns” as to the safety of the building. But the fact that the Town’s negligence has destroyed the building and made it useless, condemnable, hasn’t stopped them from assessing normal taxes on it, and the owner has had to pay more than $1000 in property taxes alone for a building that is dangerous and unusable. Your government at work! Your government working for you and in your interest. NOT!

Now Mr Jordan’s involvement in covering up a Highway Department employee’s drug use has been exposed. Let’s see what happens now. We’re watching the New Baltimore Town Board closely, and Mr Jordan still has 2 years to go.

The owner wrote to the Town Assessor, Mr Gordon Bennett, asking for a reassessment of the building and an adjustment of the tax bill. Mr Bennett, rather than acknowledging the situation and the Town’s complicity in the damages and losses to the resident, responded in a letter, “the grievance board would be the venue for such a complaint … {I]f you would like us to mail a grievance form to you, we would be happy to do so.” Your government at work! Your government working for you and in your interest. NOT!

The bottom line: Pay your taxes. We’ll provide you with insensitive, non-responsive, incompetent government. We’ll damage your property, cost you thousands, pee down your leg, and spit in your eye. Sucker! Now, pay your taxes like a good citizen, or else!
If New Baltimore had the public’s interests and safety in mind, they’d condemn the building but that would be an admission of the facts; they won’t dare condemn the building because they’d have to have a reason and reasons have causes, and we, they know the Why’s and the How’s of the situation. They have for years and have let it go on and on and on.

In this article we’ve used New Baltimore as an example of what’s going on generally in our local communities. You’ll find similar situations in Ravena, Coeymans and elsewhere in this area. It seems to be a pattern, almost like a disease that just crosses from one community to infect the other and then, mutated, crosses back into another community. Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk-New Baltimore, plague central.

The problem is that we deny the reality that we don’t have a clue what government is or how it should be functioning. As a result, as the result of your denial and continuing ignorance and apathy, it gets only worse. In fact, New Baltimore, while horribly corrupt and incompetent, is probably the least afflicted of the three communities. Just ask residents of Ravena or Coeymans about their water system, their sewer system, how they are billed for water and sewer services, property taxation practices, building code enforcement, law enforcement, etc. Ravena and Coeymans property owners can tell you some stories to set your hair on end.

In New Baltimore the problem seems to be a core group who control the elections and their outcomes. The situation is like a mini-New York state where the entire state might vote, New York City does the choosing. In Ravena and Coeymans, the lower classes, social services recipients, the porch monkeys outnumber the property owner taxpayers. Promise the have-nots extra benefits and free schooling for their offspring and you own them. Mr Tom Dolan and his cronies have proved this in Coeymans. Ravena elected a local bartender and bar owner, William “Mouse” Misuraca, to be their mayor. Pays to have a gin mill in Ravena if you have political ambitions.

But all of these communities are misgoverned, depressed, losing population, and have terrible real estate values. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that there are more For Sale signs going up than there are new businesses coming in, most businesses are moving or dying. New Baltimore has only the 9W corridor as any potential business and you can count them on two hands. Downstaters and outside developers are buying up the legacy properties and the old farms, intending to subdivide and “develop.” Coeymans has prostituted its unique historic Hudson River scenic opportunities to court industry, heavy truck traffic, dust and noise instead of artists, shoppers and tourists. Porch-monkeys, deserted buildings, ramshackle housing, crime, drugs, and more porch-monkeys are the pride of Coeymans. Ravena is the empty storefront capital of the area, cleverly leaving the former business’s signs up to make the impression that the properties aren’t “really” empty. It’s all smoke and mirrors, friends!

The bottom line as we see it is that local government, the government closest to us, the government that affects us most directly, the government we should be able to trust has turned rabid on us. The very people we elected to take care of our community, to serve and to protect us and our families, the very people to lied when they said they’d bring us a better life if we elect them, have stabbed us repeatedly in the back. Why? How? Well, because you put them where they are. Because you allow them to do that. You let a small minority of outspoken patriots stand up and tell them like it is. If they succeed you’re right behind them, if they happen to be shut down, you run and hide. That’s how we got where we are as community and as a nation. You hide. You don’t open your mouths. You don’t take action. You don’t vote. Your don’t demand transparency, responsibility, accountability. You want to play nice. You want to kiss ass. You teach your kids to do the same. You are terrible role models. And you wonder why you’re surrounded by skanks and non-achievers? Look in the mirror, friends. You’ll find the answers there.

When you go to the polls this November and you look at the rotten selection of recycled goods you have to choose from, a selection that even makes dumpster diving at PriceChopper produce look fresh and appetizing, you can thank yourselves. Our hometown political process has turned into dumpster-diving democracy. Thanks so much for participating!

 

I know there’s a candidate in here somewhere!

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!!!

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!

Democrap Swindle: Dan McCoy, Craig Apple, Tom Dolan do the Democrap Thing.

Dan McCoy, Albany County Executive seeking re-election on the democrap ticket this November, has to be dumb as dirt if he thinks he’s going to get any political capital by playing a shell game AGAIN with the residents and taxpayers of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community. If the Ravena News Herald front-page story (September 10, 2015) on the democrap conspiracy to provide Ravena youth with a place to go to stay out of trouble is to be believed it’s UNBELIEVABLE.

scam scam scam

The Scams Victimizing Ravena-Coeymans Never Seem to Stop!
And they always seem to be “for the kids.”

Dan McCoy, Craig Apple Playing Democrap Joke on Ravena-Coeymans and Albany County Taxpayers!

Do you all have to be reminded that you are paying Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk school taxes to support a school budget of more than $40 million? Isn’t that where the kids are supposed to be provided (1) with education, (2) with supervised extracurricular and after-school activities such as sports and field trips, (3) with academic help like tutoring and homework assistance? If Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr Dolan, and Mr John D’Antonio could put together a whole brain among their four empty heads, and if they had any clue as to what has been going on in the Ravena Coeymans-Selkirk community in the past 2-3 years, they’d stay far, far away from it, especially in an election year. But they’re too brainless, clueless to do that. They’re blinded by their uncontrollable egos and indifference to the real needs of their communities.

If you don’t remember what happened to two — count them TWO — previous youth and teen activity centers that were driven out of town by village trustee Nancy Warner, insider Cathy Deluca, Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca (now executive director of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs) after a [forced] retirement from the Coeymans Police Department, former Coeymans Police Chief Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington, former mummy mayor John Bruno, let us remind you how village of Ravena and town of Coeymans elected officials and corrupt police department employees (Deluca and Darlington), obstructed justice, violated protected civil rights, harassed and persecuted the teen center until kids and parents were driven away. Of course, the teen center was attracting teens and youth who would otherwise be on the street. The teen center also was potential competition for the now defunct and dismantled Ravena Health and Fitness Center that Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, with the collaboration and support of former mummy mayor John Bruno and the ex-Coeymans cops Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca and Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington (former police chief now part-time school bus driver), unlawfully created and turned over to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s partner, Cathy Deluca, whose fraudulent civil service application was unlawfully considered and approved by a now resigned director of Albany County Civil Service.

How is it possible?  and Who? is behind this new initiative to all of a sudden take care of Ravena’s youth and teens; the very youth and teens who are an almost extinct species in Ravena and Coeymans, thanks in part to misinformation, corruption, abuse of public office, and downright nastiness?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

While Dan McCoy and Tom Dolan promise that the proposed youth center, which is to be housed in the same space as the former now defunct Ravena Health and Fitness Center (the third failure chalked up to Cathy Deluca’s corruption and mismanagement), now that all the junk equipment has been sold (Let’s see…Warner and Deluca paid Robert “Bob” Fisk, another Ravena insider, more than $40,000 for that equipment. Warner and Deluca kept the RHFC open for more than two years while it was hemorrhaging taxpayer dollars to the tune of more than $100,000 each year! So what’s the final cost of these brainiac ideas to local taxpayers? Why not ask Ravena Mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca, who strangely was unavailable (as a Republican) to appear among the shark mob of democrats McCoy, Apple, Dolan, etc.)

Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Look, RCS taxpayers are paying a bundle for the services that will be literally duplicated by this idiotic so-called “youth programming initiative” for Ravena and Coeymans. We have a school budget that is supposed to be doing most of what Moron McCoy, Rotten Apple, Dudley-Dolan and Dopey-D’Antonio are pushing! In fact, didn’t we recently vote on a capital improvement proposal for the athletic facilities for the RCS school district to the tune of several millions of dollars? We have an RCS Sports Association. What are they doing for youth? We have a Coeymans Police Youth Athletic organization. We have an almost competition swimming pool! Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Why Ravena-Coeymans? What’s the catch? There’s got to be a catch. Or is it just that the democraps are scared shiteless that their cronies are going to get the boot in November?

This sounds like another scam that’s taking the RCS community for another ride down Stupid Lane. If you fall for this one like you’ve fallen for all the other scams from Reubenville to the Ravena Health and Fitness failure, you really should be sent down the river for mental treatments.

If the county of Albany and Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio have so much change jingling in their pockets, there are much more needy communities and organizations that need those taxpayer dollars. We intend to contact those organizations and let them know what kind of scandalous scam is going on in Ravena-Coeymans, and we’ll let them ask Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio what is going on in their empty democrap heads.

sleezebag

McCoy, Apple, Dolan

As for Ravena-Coeymans we have this to say: Utilize your school facilities fully. Use your RCS Commuity Library fully. Use your churches fully. Use your extracurricular activities and after-school support activities fully. Use your local sports associations fully. And parents, spend some time with your kids for a change. Try being parents.

Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr D’Antonio, Mr Dolan: We’re not finished with you slugs yet. We have more to say about you leeches in an upcoming article. This latest scam you’re trying to feed our friends and neighbors is a declaration of election year war. Let the games begin!

Local and Regional Politicians are using and abusing our children as fodder for their inflated egos; these politicians are using our children as tools to manipulate parents and adults into supporting their freakish games. STOP it!

The Ravena News Herald was once a family-owned, community newspaper; George McHugh, a local attorney who was rewarded for his politics with a judgeship, sold out to the Johnson Newspaper Group. The Ravena News Herald in now a corporate rag being used by its owners, John B. Johnson and the Johnson Newspaper Group, to promote their politics and their agendas. The Ravena News Herald is no longer YOUR community newspaper, it’s THEIRS to use to bait you with your local faces and then to force feed you THEIR politics. You are being manipulated to the max. WAKE UP RCS!

Stop using and abusing our kids for your political games!It's not for the kids, Jerky Boys, it's for YOU! The Editor

Stop using and abusing our kids for your political games!
