Thanatology Café: Where the conversation is about death.

Two great things about death and dying are happening right here in Ravena. First of all, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes has expanded their operations to a new location in Ravena, at 9 Main Street, in the former Pero Memorial Chapel. Now the Ravena area has a choice; no more funeral monopoly in Ravena. Maybe there’s not much choice in life in Ravena but at least there’s a choice in death.

The second great thing is that Thanatology Café: Where the conversation is about death, is being launched right in Ravena, at the RCS Community library.

Be sure to mark the date: Saturday, April 9, 2016, 2-4 p.m. The program starts promptly at 2:00 p.m. so don’t be late. There will be light refreshments.

The organizers do ask that you sign up at the RCS Community Library using the sign-up sheets available there. You can also sign up at thanatology.cafe@gmail.com. When you sign up via email, you’ll receive an initial registration form that you should fill out and bring with you to the program on April 9.

What is Thanatology Café?

We thought you’d never ask!

joke's over


Thanatology: [than-uh-tol-uh-jee] the study of death and dying, and bereavement, especially the study of ways to understand the coping mechanisms, meaning-making, transcendence and transformation to support the bereaved and mourners, and to lessen suffering and address the needs of the dying and their survivors.


It’s a  totally unique program and it’s called

Thanatology Café.

It’s a place where anyone can come in and talk about their thoughts, concerns, and interests centering on death and dying, bereavement, grief, society and death, spirituality and death, the death industry, our responsibilities as human beings who will die some day.

Thanatology Café is a safe place to talk about the ultimate mystery and to share thoughts and concerns about death and dying. It’s a place where you won’t be judged, no agenda will try to convert you or attempt to sell you something. It’s neutral ground, a sacred space where you can open your heart and mind to benefit everyone.

Thanatology Café will also be a source of valuable information from professionals who work in the field of death and dying. The program will include speakers, presenters, or even a film for discussion. But most of the time it will simply be a place to freely express ideas and thoughts, to share with the entire group or in smaller groups working off their own energies, monitored by a facilitator.

Thanatology Café is going to be offered in at least four counties: Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Greene to start. Since community libraries are centers for education and information and are central to most communities, the organizers will be holding the regular monthly sessions in community libraries throughout the area. There will also be other sessions for special interests or to organize special events like tours etc. to historic sites. One such site is Oakwood Cemetery in Troy, where Uncle Sam is buried along with a slew of other historic figures. But the crematorium chapel is a must see and TC is working on a tour for sometime in May or June 2016.

Thanatology Café is an important resource for first responders, church bereavement groups, bereavement ministries, and even funeral directors (TC will host several presentations by funeral directors with Q&A sessions).

Thanatology Café is for everyone and the invitation is open to anyone who needs or wants to talk about death, dying, grief, mourning, spirituality, traditions and superstitions, the funeral business. The field and conversation is wide open. Only the participants will decide.

How long do we have to wait? Official or Unofficial?


It’s 12:00 noon on Friday the 13th, ten (10) days after the Greene County Elections, and the morons at the Greene County Board of Elections STILL HAVEN’T POSTED THE FINAL RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 3RD ELECTIONS. THE LINK TO THE “OFFICIAL” RESULTS STILL SHOWS “UNOFFICIAL” RESULTS. WAKE UP GUYS!


WE WANT TO KNOW NOW!!!

So far, SILENCE!

So far, SILENCE!

Today, on Veterans Day, we claim to be celebrating the men and women still among us who served to preserve our dignity, rights, and freedoms. What “dignity”? What “rights”? What “freedoms”? Today, on Veterans Day, we slap our veterans in the face and kick them in the ass! Let’s ask our elected officials and politicians Why? that is!

A “Commander-in-Chief” who talks big about “We’ll keep fighting” but who has never served. Politicians who collect the money and get the benefits but can’t stick to the real issues. Media that sells ratings rather than inform us. We’ve forgotten what it is to be a real hero because we get fed a “hero-a-day”!

She Weeps for Us!

She Weeps for Us!

A week after the elections and we still don’t know the final results! Absentee ballots are not yet counted!!!

If the craziness and nastiness of election campaigns and the anxiety centering on the questionable results of local elections were not enough, our paid officials can’t even get their announcements right. It’s no wonder people don’t vote. But how can this country criticize other nations’ voting practices when our own is in such a sorry state?

For example, It’s now a week after the November 3, elections, and the final results are not posted (absentee ballots are STILL not counted).

The Greene County Board of Elections, Marie Metzler  (mmetzler@discovergreene.com) and Brent Bogardus (bbogardus@discovergreene.com), commissioners, can’t even decide whether the results on the Greene County Board of Elections website are “Official” or “Unofficial”. Who would think to look on the Green County Employee Info page for the November 3, 2015, “Official”/”Unofficial” election results, anyway. And they don’t tell us when the results, official or unofficial, will be final.

The Greene County Board of Elections page link reads: “Official Election Results/November 3, 2015” but the link goes to “Unofficial” results and those unofficial results are on the “greeneemployeeinfo” page. Go figure! And we trust those guys with running our elections?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

When will they decide? Official or Unofficial?

And we mentioned last week that we expected the Albany County Board of Elections to be dragging their feet. Commissioners Matthew J. Clyne (D) and Rachel L. Bledi (R) don’t bother to provide their e-mail addresses. Do you think they’re interested in hearing from you about the outrageous delay in getting absentee ballots counted and the final results out? Coeymans will have to wait until after November 13, 2015, to learn the results. (Well, the good news is you still have time to leave town!) By the way, that’s Friday the 13th. Does that give the results away?

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

Albany will Count the Coeymans Absentee Ballots on Friday the 13th!

What’s the delay?!?!

We know Albany County is a Democrap sumphole and is run by a bunch of political machine backroom cronies, but really, do they actually need 10 days to count and tally absentee ballots? Where are we anyway? In Afghanistan?

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate on Friday the 13th.

Our Board of Elections will Let Us Know our Fate
on Friday the 13th.

Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!
But there’s still time to leave town, people!

The Epilogue You’ve All Been Waiting For: “Common Cents”– the Final Word

 

Before we launch our commentaries on the continuing corruption of the Ravena – Coeymans – Selkirk Central School District and its union – made – and – owned candidates for board of education, and before we launch our feature article on the Town of Coeymans town council’s own babbling boobie, Mr Peter Masti, and Masti’s Morbid Mentality and Blue – collar Hallucinations for the Town of Coeymans. We’ll also be publishing facts and figures on why the Town of New Baltimore has to leave the RCS CSD and join the Coxsackie school system. But first, we’d like to publish Mr Laszlo Polyak’s Epilogue to his analyses of the Ravena Village 2014 – 15 budget. So stay tuned for the RCS and Masti pieces, and the New Baltimore report. You’re gonna love’m!


Epilogue — Common Cents

Or the Eptitaph — In a State of General Confusion

DOES IT REALLY NEED A CAPTION?

DOES IT REALLY NEED A CAPTION?

Mr Polyak: I enjoy comments feedback and other points of view because the best solutions come to light from those discussions. One comment suggested that was I‘m “confused:” one, however. Well that’s an understatement if there ever was one! Every time I read the Village of Ravena’s 2014 – 15 budget I get more and more confused.

In Part One of my budget analysis I addressed only telephone expenses as an example of the waste and incompetence exhibited in the Ravena village budget. In that discussion I put out some questions regarding several other confusing budget line items. In order to understand those expenses you would have to see the actual bill voucher or receipt. Like the Village of Ravena is going to let you see that? Good luck!

In Part Two, I broke it all down and put some names on the numbers, while discussing just the facts as printed black–and–white in the Village of Ravena budget. Noting things like postage and gas (fuel) line Items. I also noted that the Water and Sewer funds are by law separate taxation entities (your water bill is “a tax”, and your sewer bill is “a tax”. Those monies are to be used only on sewer or water expenses, that is, the cost to bring us water and take away our sewerage. Water and sewer assessments are NOT part of our general Village of Ravena taxes or Town of Coeymans taxes.

budget-cuts animI also looked at the discrepancies in billing practices to the residents of both communities the amounts billed should be equal—but are far, far from equal, fair or even legal! We all should pay the same rates for water and the same rates for sewer in both the town and village. And rates should be consistent  in different categories such as, an industrial user or residential user etc. based on the actual cost to bring them water and sewer services. Right? Not in Ravena-Coeymans, not in the Twilight Zone!

It’s really great to see and hear so many folk’s comments on items of the VoR budget, it’s a welcomed refreshment compared to the groans and moans of the past. We need discussion and thinking like that! What is your solution to the many confusing discrepancies in the Village of Ravena budget? As I pointed out in Part 1 and in more detail in Part 2 no one questioned the gross (and unexplained, probably illegal) $36,400 in “unclassified” expenses, or “outside services” to the tune of about $50,000. Or what about the “CHIPS acct” where we have $62,000, in revenue. Wouldn’t you question an “unclassified” amount on your cable television or your power bill even if it was a couple of dollars? Why let tens of thousands in “unclassified” spending get swept under the carpet? It’s your money, people!

Here’s one for ya: In the “CHIPS” expense acct (and if you don’t know yet what the CHIPS account is, maybe you should ask!) we have spent only $40,000 (it’s also for road repair). Where did the other $22,000 go? Why didn’t the commenters point that little nugget out to us? Not a peep but Yeah! Henry and Fritz have to respond to emergencies. Too bad! But really, Where’s the $22 grand? We want to know!

Mayor Misuracs's Private Shitter in Ravena Village Hall

Mayor Misuraca’s Private Shitter in Ravena Village Hall

As soon as I attached a name to the village foreman’s job figures in the budget I felt I was in the middle of the Salem witch trials. But that’s OK because as an auditor I know ways to find out if they were “working hard or hardly working”: an auditor demands the records on the spot. (Wonder how the auditors from the Office of the New York State Comptroller missed all of this? Or did they?). We also ask for the names of all personnel employed by the Village of Ravena department in which Fritz/Henry “work” as well as their time/effort allocations (F/T, P/T, number of hours worked per week, on-call, etc.). We’d like to see copies of job descriptions for all personnel employed by the VoR department in which Fritz/Henry “work”. We’d then like to see copies of the call logs, emergency response logs, snow emergency dispatch logs or any written records or documents showing the dates and times of emergency response for water/sewerage emergencies, snow removal emergencies, storm emergencies to which the VoR (department where Fritz/Henry are employed) responded in the period of June 1, 2013 to May 31, 2014. After all, wouldn’t you expect records like that to be available, even if only for insurance purposes? Where do you think ex–mayor John T. Bruno or hatchet-woman Nancy Warner or ex-mayor Bruno’s pet toad, hot–shot dithering Bill Bailey keep those records? Guess again!

It’s those kind of records that are normally and routinely kept by legit and honest departments that tell the real story of whether they are working hard or hardly working, or even if they show up for work! These are questions and records that any auditor worth his salt could and would demand before jumping to any conclusions. (And on – the – spot impose fines of up to $25,000 for every “What do you mean you don’t have a mandated public record for inspection?) Tell it to the hearing judge, the auditor could say.

 

In the budget all departments should be sub-totaled so department heads can defend their requests for funding for the upcoming year, and taxpayers can clearly seen what’s being requested and for what. As for combining some department jobs, expenditures, allocations, personnel in another department or rolling personnel over into another department without adequate justification is just asking to get beat up by an auditor!
I didn’t even discuss the question of sales tax revenue and the corruption that has been going down over the years. Ravena is expected to receive $625,000.00 (↓↓↓ from a previous $640,000.00) so when I read or hear some fool say that we will punish local business with his checkbook, I see the loss of sales-tax revenues. Chew on this, why don’t ya: We in the village lost a few $100,000.00 in sales tax revenues over the years that Ravena – Coeymans has been hemorrhaging small businesses. And, friends and neighbors, that’s money that the Village and Town have to make up via our general taxes going up. The point is that it pays to spend our money locally; provided we can attract and keep businesses. And I mean businesses who don’t come to Ravena – Coeymans for a tax holiday or a kick – back, and who don’t destroy our town and village character, poison our air, hide our river, destroy our streets. You all know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, just open your tired eyes.

crooked-politician-III also didn’t say anything about village insurance. Because of the many potential lawsuits brought about by the village’s and town’s mismanagement, and outright illegal activities resulting in claims, the Village of Ravena has had to roughly doubled its insurance coverages: it went from 50,000 to 100,000. Illegal activities, fines, misconduct and complaints that can result in millions in settlements or judgments have to be covered. It wouldn’t surprise me that due to all the pending law suits from some form of violation of civil and constitutional righrts, discrimination, the gazebo incidents, and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center employee misconduct (Cathy Deluca got the village slammed with at least two Notices of Claims that are likely to turn into lawsuits very soon. Those will demand several millions in compensation to the complainant! The Town of Coeymans, too, has dozens of pending lawsuits because of the misconduct of the Coeymans police alone!) etc. Then there are the criminal charges in the complaints against village and town officials for such things as obstruction of justice and falsely reporting an incident (Cathy Deluca). Between the town and village, there are roughly two dozen pending law suits (This is public record; go look it up! Ask the village clerk or the town clerk for the information!).

So we taxpayers don’t even know how much the lawsuits will cost us, and we have to pay for it all in the long run. It’s like “Islip” garbage barge; it ended up costing the property owners 20 million! It’s like your property taxes going up from $1,000 to $ 5,000 to cover the cost. Juries don’t care who you think you are; they award tens of millions for discrimination every day without giving it a second thought! After all, your elected officials should know better. Shouldn’t the?

Now let me bring you full circle back to the VoR budget. To be fair, the new mayor of Ravena William “Moose” Misuraca, took office (No sympathy! He begged for the opportunity to run for mayor! Now deal with it!) and now has a mountain of rotting old garbage on his desk to deal with. (Thanks to ex–mayor John Bruno and his other losers, Marty Case (defeated), Rocco Persico (lost), Nancy Warner (to be defeated) and Bill Bailey (already lost but doesn’t know it)) When Misuraca comes up for air, he’ll have to find his own way around.

One of the reasons I’m so confused (and you can’t make this crap up) is that just last Friday 5/2/14 I called the village clerk to get a certified copy of few documents, the deputy clerk said OK, and then made a comment about the Smalbany blog, “Common Cents”, Part 1 and Part 2. She went on to say, “… but Laszlo you’re not sure we do the billing for the water etc. as stated in the blog. A few seconds later, she called me back and refused to provide the certified documents! I asked Why? The deputy village clerk told me that Bill Bailey—You remember him. He’s the dithering boob who pissed himself every time ex – mayor Bruno asked him a question. The one on the village council who stutters and mumbles a lot.—said not to certify them !. OK, I then told them put that in writing. I get off the phone and I’m beyond confused because in Part 2 I spell out the job mandates of any village clerk and one of them is “to certify“ records to be true copies etc.—as mandated by law, so with my head spinning, I’m thinking Bill Bailey instructs the village clerk to commit a crime? And where does Bill Bailey get the authority to tell the village clerk to do or not to do anything, anyway? That’s simply not his job! But now think about this: Nancy Warner, a key conspirator in the old Bruno regime, was the clerk for over 25 years and she’s now overseeing the village office. If something needs to disappear, Nancy Warner knows what it is and can make it disappear. Next election watch Nancy Warner disappear! Like I said you can’t make this stuff up. But the real question is this: When will Misuraca and his majority get the balls to take charge and start making things happen…LEGALLY. Does anyone in the village have or know their job descriptions? Do they ever think of what questions a federal judge or a prosecutor is going to ask them before the judge determines how much of their 401k, their pensions, and their social security will go to pay punitive damages or fines for abuse of public office, violations of protected rights, discrimination and or before removing them from public office and making a retirement reservation in Coxsackie corrections.

PAY UP, STUPID!!!

PAY UP, STUPID!!!

So let’s walk a mile in our new mayor’s shoes (I mean wading boots. He’ll need them to get past all of the bull shit and still get anything done in the Village of Ravena). Where does he go from here?

So YES! Virgil you’re right, I’m very confused!!!! BUT know what Phil Crandall has on the ongoing corruption that is going on in the Village of Ravena and the Town of Coeymans. (For those of you with short memories, Phil Crandall was the town of Coeymans judge who got railroaded into resigning because he didn’t approve of the goings on between the Coeymans town board and the Coeymanazi police department. Click here to read the Smalbany article on this link: From the Judge Himself: Coeymans Judge Resigns, Insider Exposes Corruption.) I like our new mayor so far—but he hasn’t done anything yet so what’s not to like—Oh well! When the judges asked why records are not certified I’ll just say it’s a great question, and that he should ask the likes of Bill Bailey and Nancy Warner and the clerks Biernacki and Demitrazek, I’m just a confused retired auditor. So much for co-mingling funds your federal Honor; welcome to Ravena they have their own set of hubris rules and laws.

 I had a meeting with the mayor, handed him a water bill from a PUD (No, not a village employee; it’s Planned Urban Development ) of 100 homes in Westchester the water bills are less than ours, they’re billed quarterly, and all are metered and the meters are changed out every 5 years, their water comes from Greenwich CT, two wealthy and I mean wealthy places and their water bills are cheaper! Can Bill Bailey explain that? And you don’t have to pay the whole bill at once, and the taste is thousand times better than Ravena water. Cheaper, fairer, better tasting, more convenient billing. Would that ever work in Ravena? Wishful thinking 😉

Here’s a suggestion: It would be great if the new mayor would post all incoming vouchers and bills, and receipts. Maybe even on weekly basis Then we can see who’s doing what with our tax dollars.

aww, you aren’t even close.

 FireGeezer, A Blog Dedicated to the First Responder/Firefighter Community, Recently Reposted Part of Our Article “Share Our Shock” on the Unbelievable Stupidity of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs and Their Decision to Hire Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca” to be the Association’s CEO/Executive Director. We posted a link the FireGeezer’s web site. No sooner had we done that than the rats left their dark holes and started their rants. Well, it didn’t take long for FireGeezer to figure out their agenda and POOF! all of their posts suddenly got deleted. That’s happening more and more to them lately and so it should.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “taunt” as “a reproach in a mocking or insulting style. This is a taunt.

Joke's On Sicko! BANNED AGAIN!

Joke’s On Sicko!
BANNED AGAIN!

 It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s* a nobody again!

[* We are using the pronoun “he” not because we think the Sicko is a male but because traditionally the grammatical “he” is used to mean both genders; today, thanks to the feminist agenda, the pronoun “she” is frequently used in the same way.]

WE WIN (AGAIN)—YOU LOSE AGAIN, LOSER

One of the sickos who apparently is desperate for attention wrote in a comment: “aww, you aren’t even close. Guess those close to you are going to betray you sooner than later.” That sicko is responding to our “UPDATE” on this blog in which we finger a local whacko as the one who posted the crazy rants on FireGeezer. But what the sicko doesn’t realize is that he or she is actually identifying with the psychopath we suspect to have written the stupidity on FireGeezer. It’s ironic that as soon as the lunatic rants got deleted, so did Sicko’s identity. He’s a lonely nobody again!

But to set the record straight, the sick minds who are so desperately trying to put a face on this blog, who are so desperately trying to vent their frustration about not being able to spew their venom, and hurt the community-spirited people reading and contributing to this blog, those same sociopathic personalities are actually shooting themselves in the foot. Here’s why:

First of all, those sickos are ignorant of the content of this blog. If they knew anything about this blog, they would know that on May 5, 2012, in the article a “A Little History Lesson“, everything they think that they are exposing was already thrown out there for everyone to read. Even the owner of the blog was identified. Yes! No guessing required. That article identified the blog owner! No secrets, readers. Everything was up on the front page since May 5, 2012—until they started getting really nasty.  But that article, “A little History Lesson” was there for everyone to read, and was until this morning (we password protected the page but you can request a password to view it. Just write us at rcs.confidential (a) gmail.com) That was done because it was all made up in sick minds, meaningless, already shown to be garbage, and the Editor wanted to get it out of the way, knowing that some dumbasses would want to drag it out and use it stupidly. That’s exactly what they did and are trying to do. But they failed, miserably.

Secondly, if they think that they have some special, secret information that they can use to discredit and destroy someone they repeat it over and over again, until they believe their own lies, and then attacking more and more innocent people. Apparently, they think that by doing that someone’s going to lose their cool and react. Not gonna happen. You see, those lies have been around so long and the stories, the tales have been told again and again that everyone, and we mean EVERYONE is sick of hearing them. So our advice to Sicko and his friends is: Get a life and a brain, stupid! You’ve tried this all before and it didn’t work then so why do you think it’s going to work now? It’s all old and uninteresting. People knew your agenda years ago and it didn’t work!

The most reliable sign of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. You’re a pitiful idiot!

The third point we’d like to make is this: You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid! This blog goes to incredible lengths to get hard facts and information, and only then publishes the hard, true facts. You can deny them all you like but they are still there. Call us what you like but it doesn’t change the truth or the facts. But there is something you can do:

  • If you don’t like the Deluca stories, check out the facts and if you have a defense, send us the facts. We’ll be happy to print them.
  • If you don’t like the facts we publish on the Warners, send us facts that prove us wrong and we’ll publish them.
  • If you don’t like the facts about the Coeymans police department, send us the facts that refute our conclusions.
  • If you don’t like what we publish about the Village of Ravena and the Village of Ravena budget, show us in the budget what we got wrong.
  • If you feel that Ravena needs Cathy Deluca’s playpen to the tune of $105,000 a year when the Ravena Health and Fitness Center generates no revenues for the Village of Ravena, show us the facts and figures that say that Ravena needs the RHFC and that it’s worth the taxpayer dollars being wasted on it.
  • If you don’t like our exposés of the failing Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools or the teachers union or the board of education, leave a comment complete with facts and figures to rebut what we write. We’ll publish your comment.

You can’t fight hard facts by trying to kill the messenger, stupid!

You can’t do any of that and so you try again and again to kill the messenger by repeating your fairy tales and attacking even his/her family. Isn’t that a real cowardly way to try to prove your point? Well, it’s not working, stupid! All you do is get your ass kicked again and again. All you manage to do is get yourself banned from just another blog or website. Are you such a dumbass that you keep doing the same thing over and over again and get the same results? (Answer: YES!) See above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

As we mentioned above, back on May 5, 2012, when we first published this blog, we actually published the very same things you continue to think are so important. In one of our first articles, “A Little History Lesson,” we went public with all of that slander and libel—by its very definition unfactual and false—; in the first week that this blog was published we had already published your stupid lies ourselves. Why? Because we wanted the world to know what stupids like you would probably come up with, thinking it was so significant, but we tripped you up by having put it out there right from the start. We beat you to the punch you idiot but you don’t even know that! And you think that because you post the same crapola and put one of your many fake names on it or use one of your many fake e-mails, that it’s going to be news. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Accept the Fact that you and your kind are losers! And in denial!

Look, Stupid, we have established ourselves as highly reliable, strongly factual, reality-based, journalism-quality reporting. We publish only reliable and verifiable information, most often getting the facts under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law directly from the very public entities we are reporting on. If you think you can do better, please do. We’d love to see what you come up with.

We get more than 10,000 readers a month and in the next couple of weeks we’ll have a quarter of a million readers (250,000 readers). And that’s not even counting the readers from FaceBook and other social media, or the visitors referred to the site by email or by our many registered followers! People trust us and believe in us. We earned that trust by being honest and factual. We risked a lot by publishing this blog and going after the powers-to-be but the information was too important not to get it out to the community. Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out again. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage. The community is grateful and says so repeatedly. We have changed elections and changed the way our friends, neighbors and readers think. What have YOU done, stupid?

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

People like you make us all feel like geniuses.

The very site on which you tried but failed to discredit us independently picked up on our article and asked many of the same questions: Who is Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca? That first-responder/firefighters website asked the same questions we did and agreed that there were questions, even rebuttals that had to be made. Did anyone rebut the real facts or refute them? No! Deluca didn’t and the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs didn’t either. Why? Because they couldn’t rebut or refute the truth, the facts.

Neither can you so you resorted to your old tricks. Whether you’re a Joan Ross, a Cathy Deluca, a Jerry Deluca, a Nancy Warner, a Tim Houghtaling, a Scott Horne you’re all the one and the same: cockroaches. And your methods are all the same. Please see above for the “most reliable sign of stupidity.”

So, that’s that. Save your energy. What you think is an ace is from an old marked deck, a very old, very worn out cheat’s deck. No one’s interested in your puffed up fantasy stories, your half-truths, your slanders or your libels. You get banned every time and you’re only building a case against yourself.

Why you don’t just accept our good advice to stay on topic, be truthful, state true facts, and stop wasting everyone’s time trying to put a face on this blog. You won’t be able to do it and it’s totally unnecessary. No matter who is writing this blog it won’t change the facts. The truth will continue to be true no matter who writes it.

Instead of hiding in some dark place away from the retaliation and intimidation that was part of our neighbors’ day-to-day life we came out and went on the counter-attack. We sent the real rats scurrying for their holes but smoked the bastards out. We’re still doing that and will continue to do it until they’re all in a cage.  What have YOU done, stupid?

Like rats driven by the bait in a trap, you are driven by your greed and hypocrisy to take another step into your depravity, until, like the unfortunate rat, you snatch at the bait and SNAP! … you know the rest of the story.

New Baltimore: Just a Hint of Corruption?

New Baltimore: Do Benway, Norris Recommend Conflict of Interest in Choosing Insurance Carriers!

Can you spell that for me? Sure: O-R-O-R-K-E + B-E-N-W-A-Y + N-O-R-R-I-S = CORRUPTION.

Can you spell that for me?
Sure: O-R-O-R-K-E + B-E-N-W-A-Y + N-O-R-R-I-S = CORRUPTION.

In her biased article “Dispute arises over insurance carriers” that appears in the March 6 issue of The Ravena News Herald Jessica Mosier (Columbia – Greene Media, Johnson Newspaper Group) reports on the deliberations by the New Baltimore Town Board on whether or not to jump ship from their present insurer to an insurer recommended by board members Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, NYMIR. Problem is: NYMIR has some pretty shady background when it comes to pals Susan O’Rorke, Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, and we probably should throw in their media mole Jessica Mosier, who seems to lose a lot in the translation.

Here’s what we managed to dig up:

In a recent e – mail communication from Lisa Benway to Shelly VanEtten (recently elected to the board with the Dellisanti team that ousted the tyrannical O’Rorke mob), Benway writes:

“I have looked over our current policy again, the Trident Renewal proposal and the NYMIR proposal…I know that people get nervous about changing policies because they are unsure of the service they will get from the new carrier. I can tell you that NYMIR has a very good reputation for claims service and overall service in general….To sum up, based on my years in the business and my interpretation of the policies, I would recommend to the board to take the NYMIR policy.” [emphasis provided]

In the Ravena News Herald article, Mosier reports Norris as having publicly recommended NYMIR “based on savings” not on coverage terms, and Benway agreed. Crazy! You say? No! Just crooked. Because O’Rorke, Benway and Norris have a very cozy—but is it too cozy—connection with NYMIR.

Junk-journalist Jessica Mosier of the Ravena News Herald, a division of Johnson Newspaper Group, and edited by Mark Vinciguerra, a former Albany Times Useless employee, don’t do their in-depth reporting, and manage to stay ignorant—or just don’t report—the dirty connections in which their pals are involved. So here are the facts:

Benway had the gall to admit that, “No two companies for commercial insurances are identical, that I can guarantee you!”

And, Guess what! We know why Benway would make such a statement! It all revolves around conflicts of interest and campaign contributions made to Susan O’Rorke and the New Baltimore Democratic Committee under Diane Lewis made by NYMIR – associated agents, agencies, and people. The donations were made to former New Baltimore supervisor Susan O’Rorke and to the New Baltimore Democratic Committee under chairperson Diane Lewis! Of course “no two companies are identical”! One is paying you and your party off and the other is providing legitimate insurance services! Never a truer statement made! You see, Susan O’Rorke works for Wright Risk Management (WRM), the parent company of NYMIR insurance, the insurer Benway and Norris are pushing the board to hire to insure New Baltimore!

Here’s the real dirt: our late and not–so–great New Baltimore town supervisor, Ms Susan O’Rorke, is an employee of Wright Risk Management (WRM), which is the management company for, NYMIR. (Makes you wonder if O’Rorke had not gotten the boot, would the three stooges, O’Rorke, Benway and Norris have still pushed the NYMIR recommendation? Now that would have been a story leading to a conviction! But it’s a question we should still ask Lisa Benway: Would she still so strongly have recommended NYMIR, and for the same reasons?)

But that, in itself, doesn’t build a very strong case for conflict of interest or charges of corruption. Or does it?

In the period of September 25, 2009 to November 4, 2013, WRM or NYMIR or high – ranking management of those companies or their founder, William Fishlinger made contributions to the O’Rorke Campaign or to the New Baltimore Democratic Committee in the amount of more than $2,500.00.

Contributions? Maybe, maybe not.

Contributions?
Maybe, maybe not.

An unconfirmed report is that O’Rorke has given presentations to municipalities pitching herself as a town supervisor and recommends NYMIR as a recommended insurer. She may still be doing that but we have no confirmation of her present activities.

Now we have a leftover pair from the O’Rorke administration, Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, who are recommending NYMIR, the insurance company run by O’Rorke’s employer WRM, as the preferred insurer for the town of New Baltimore, and in fact, vote against the proposal to have the policy renewed by Trident; they favor NYMIR.

Now, we are inches away from corruption and abuse of public office here in the case of Benway and Norris, who have been pushing to give NYMIR the contract for insuring New Baltimore, but both Benway and Norris have gone on the public record pushing for NYMIR and Benway even strongly recommends NYMIR in her communication to vanEtten.

Does anyone see the ghost of Susan O’Rorke at work here? Or even the New Baltimore Democratic Committee and Diane Lewis. Sure, they’re hungry for more campaign contributions from WRM, NYMIR, and their founders. Best way to get it? Send them some business. Then Susie O’R. can go out and sell more municipal insurance policies for NYMIR and make a ton of money for her friends at WRM, NYPIR’s parent company, and the founders, William Fishlinger and others at Congdon, Flaherty, O’Callahan, Reid, Donlan, Travis & Fishlinger.

Great plan, Lisa, Chris, Suzie. But you were caught again doing naughties! Maybe the Attorney General will be interested in this tidbit of incriminating research?

Thank you supervisor Dellisanti, boardmembers Ruso and vanEtten for your attention to detail and your diligence in asking the villains the right questions, keeping this town of New Baltimore and its residents out of the hands of crooks!

New Baltimore: Brooks says she will leave clerk’s office

Smalbany Blog Puts on the Pressure and We Get Results!

In an article appearing in the Daily Mail today, on Thursday, March 6, 2014, reporter Jim Planck reports that highly criticized New Baltimore Town Clerk, Janet Brooks, has submitted her letter of resignation to the New York Secretary of State. According to the report, “Brooks, who has been on the job for nine-and-a-half years and was just re-elected to another two-year term in November, submitted her letter of resignation Wednesday to New York State Secretary of State Cesar Perales.’

New Baltimore Town Clerk Janet Brooks
Resigns After Criticisms of Abuse of Public Office

Janet Brooks Resigns as New Baltimore Town Clerk Town Hall Saves A Bundle in Pain-in-the-Ass Relief

Janet Brooks Resigns as New Baltimore Town Clerk
Town Hall Saves A Bundle in Pain-in-the-Ass Relief

Brooks was re-elected last November as incumbent to serve another term as New Baltimore town clerk but quickly became the subject of a controversy suggesting misuse of public office, corruption, and generally abuse of the public’s trust when it surfaced that she was collecting a full-time salary and putting in only part-time in the office. According to one reliable report, Brooks was at work only 8 days in the month of January 2014. In addition, Brooks actually had two deputies doing her work for her.

We reported extensively on Brook’s alleged misuse of her office and the fact that she balked when the newly elected New Baltimore Town Board entertained a resolution to establish fixed hours for the office of the town clerk. See our article at “If you want me to do my job, you’ll have to pay me more…”.

Canned Response: “careful consideration of (her) health issues” Hemorroids?

In the Planck article, Brooks is reported to have claimed “careful consideration of (her) health issues” was the reason for her resignation. That canned statement is second only to disgraced politicians wanting to spend more time with their families. We have a burning question: Wasn’t Ms Brooks aware of her “health issues” last November, when she ran for re-election, hoping to continue her scam on New York State and New Baltimore Taxpayers? Or did thes “health issues” crop up with the discovery of her abuse of public office, and she found herself on the hotseat with a bad case of hemorrioids having to answer some sticky questions. Yeah, that’s it: Brooks’ health issue is hemorrhoids, Right?

JUST RESIGN!!!

JUST RESIGN!!!

Regardless of the phony reasons for the resignation, Brooks gave notice that the resignation will take effect in two weeks, on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. This means that the office of town clerk for New Baltimore will accordingly be on the ballot for the next general election on Nov. 4.

New Baltimore Town Supervisor Dellisanti Talks Some Shite…

What irks us is that newly elected Town of New Baltimore supervisor, Nick Dellisanti, was less than candid when commenting on Brook’s and her service. The Planck reports Dellisanti to have said:

‘Brooks provided valued service to the community.’
“She was there nine-and-a-half years,” said Dellisanti. “She served the public well.”
***
“She did a very good job,” he said, “and she’ll be missed.”

That just might explain Mr Dellisanti's lack of candidness.

That just might explain Mr Dellisanti’s lack of candidness.

C’mon, Dellisanti, stop buttering the cabbage and have some balls! Tell the media what you think! We would have expected a bit more of honesty from Mr Dellisanti, given that his team was instrumental in exposing Brooks’ misconduct in office and given the fact that this blog published a scathing article on Brooks’ misconduct and made its own inquiries with the legal department of the Office of the State Comptroller and the Examiners’ Office specifically citing the Brooks case. The Comptroller’s legal deparment has been “looking into” our inquiries. But to be very clear: according to our information, our investigations, our inquiries, Ms Brooks provided a valued service to herself and her pension over the “nine-and-a-half years.” Ms Brooks served herself well and “did a very good job” of that. And yes, Mr Dellisanti, we’re sure you’ll miss Ms Brooks…like an inflamed hemorroid!

After March 19, when Brooks formally and physically ceases to be New Baltimore Town Clerk, her personally hand-picked insider appointee who has been Brooks’ “first deputy clerk”, Marjorie Loux of Hannacroix, another insider player, will perform the clerk’s duties during that period, as NYS Town Law requires that a town’s first deputy clerk “shall possess the powers and perform the duties of the town clerk … during a vacancy in the office of town clerk.”The law also requires the “first deputy” to have the knowledge and skills to perform, and to have taken an oath of office. Has that ever been done? Can we really trust a Brooks appointee to do an honest job, considering Brooks’ history? That’s an interesting question only the incumbent town board of New Baltimore will be responsible for answering until a new clerk is elected in November.

Loux has previously served as deputy clerk under Brooks’ predecessor, Barbara Weeks, a star performer who died suddenly, leaving the positon vacant, and the town also has a second deputy clerk, Diane Jordan (wife of controversial highway superintendent “Do-Me-A-Favor” Denis Jordan), both factors which will undoubtedly complicate the coming transition, and certainly will not resolve any of the tensions. But the question does arise, does the town of New Baltimore need all these deputies? Hell NO! What we need is a clerk who does the job and maybe a deputy who can step in if necessary, but less than part time and optionally compensated for that time unless adjustments can be made by substituting another employee and allowing comp time. That’s a legal issue that needs to be examined by the board and the town attorney. But now’s the time to start considering candidates, possible deputies for appointment, whether the deputy will be compensated, and other associated issues. Now, not at the last minute.

Well, now that Ms Brooks has announced her resignation, she’ll have more time to grind away at the organ (Whose? Now, now!) at the troubled New Baltimore Reformed Church (check out our article on the NBRC at New Baltimore Reformed Church: Slow Agonizing Death), where her pal Susan Kerr is mounting (Oh! My!) her offensives on patriotism the flag) and the American male domination of…well, they’re dominating something, aren’t they? You’ll have to sit in on one of her sermons to find out what in hell they’re dominating. Damned if we know!

The investigation must continue beyond any resignation and the inquiry must include whether there was criminal activity involved. The fat lady hasn’t sung yet; it ain’t over, pals.

Things are looking good in New Baltimore these days. Another cockroach is out of town hall. Things are looking mighty bleak for New Baltimore Democratic Committee chair Diane Lewis, now that her party’s fixtures are being scrapped one-by-one and removed from New Baltimore town hall as the corruption is exposed. Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris are next. Stay tuned for our report on their corruption in office.

A New Baltimore Resident’s Letter to the Editor: Benway, Norris Obstructing the Board?

New Baltimore Boardmembers Benway and Norris Obstructing Efficient Town Business Policies, Town Clerk Brooks Opposes Set Office Hours and Misinforms the Board, the Public, and Wants More Money; New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan Can’t Keep Accurate Figures or Records!

A New Baltimore Resident’s Concern Expressed in a Letter to the Editor

Letter-to-the-Editor1

New Baltimore Residents need to read this letter and start taking more responsibility in participating in their town’s government! They’ve been screwed royally in the past and some in town hall—not to mention any names but specifically Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris, town clerk Janet Brooks, and highway superintendent Denis Jordan, and others (like Diane Lewis)—want to continue the misinformation, indifference, lies, and unlawful practices!

February 22, 2014

To my fellow taxpayers and residents in the Town of New Baltimore:

I would like to update you on recent activities in our Town Hall and encourage all members of our community to attend the Town Board Meetings.  The meetings are on the second and fourth Monday of each month and the next meeting is scheduled for March 10, 2014.

As you know, the newly elected Supervisor (Mr. Dellisanti) and board members (Ms. Van Ettan, Mr. Ruso) since January 2014 have been actively working to address many outstanding issues left by the previous administration such as purchasing practices, transparency, and issues affecting taxpayers.

I would like to address several issues that have been brought to the Board for action but have been delayed by the boardmembers, Ms Benway and Mr Norris, carry – overs – in – office from the previous administration. Members of the community can only assume, based on Ms Benway’s and Mr Norris’ conduct, that their allegiance is not to the taxpayers and our community. Therefore your participation is needed.

The previous administration may have had policies on the books (procurement/F.O.I.L.) but Ms. O’Rourke, Ms. Benway, Mr. Norris, Ms. Brooks, Mr. Jordan all  chose not follow that law – based policy,  which is in part required by New York state law. The newly elected officials, supervisor Dellisanti, boardmembers Ruso and vanEtten, propose policy to carry out state and federal mandates that all elected/appointed local government officials must comply with.

Procurement Policy

In January Mr. Dellisanti presented to the Board a Resolution to implement a revised Procurement Policy that includes a purchase requisition process, which when implemented should prevent future misuse of funds by the officials and employees of the Town of New Baltimore.  Mr Delisanti, Ms Van Ettan, and Mr Ruso voted in favor of this resolution.  Mr Norris and Ms Benway voted AGAINST the resolution to adopt that Procurement Policy.  Under the O’Rorke regime, these two board members with the collaboration of the O’Rorke Majority (O’Rorke, Benway, Norris)  of the previous administration spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer money illegally, this is a fact based on the New York State Comptroller’s Audit Report. One would think they would jump at the opportunity to protect the taxpayers’ dollars as well as protect themselves from allegations of unlawful or even criminal activity. 

At the February 10, 2014, meeting town attorney Tal Rappleyea provided a synopsis of the Policy and  further clarification.  The Revised Procurement Policy requires the use of purchase orders/requisitions that would include details such as bids and prices of proposed products and services, in order to justify that purchase. Ms Benway and Mr Norris consistently to question the need for such practices.  In fact at the February 10th meeting, Mrs. Benway again expressed her concern for their use! [Editor’s Note: The use of purchase orders / requisitions and justification of need, plus documentation of competitive bidding is just plain good business practice, ensuring that the interests of the public are safeguarded, and public monies are spent responsibly! It’s part of transparency and accountability, something apparently alien to Benway and Norris!]

At that same February 10th town board meeting Mr Dellisanti proposed a resolution- to Adopt Minor Corrections to the Procurement Policy to correct the typographical errors in the previously approved Procurement Policy Resolution; both Mr Norris and Ms Benway voted against the corrections!  [Editor’s Note: It sounds to us that Norris and Benway are just being difficult, wasting the board’s time, and ignoring the real needs of the town. They’re abusing their public office!]

Resolution to Adopt FOIL Policy

Based on the many complaints from the community, the previous Administration, former supervisor O’Rourke, and town clerk Janet Brooks had a very distorted and perverse view of compliance with NYS Freedom of Information Law.  At the February 10, 2014 town board meeting, Ms Diane Lewis, chair of the New Baltimore Democratic Committee and wife/confidential secretary to former town supervisor David Lewis,  voiced  from the audience that a F.O.I.L. policy already existed. [Editor’s Note: To be honest, Lewis has no standing to comment on what policies exist, don’t exist or exist and must be amended; Diane Lewis, despite her arrogance, is not on the board and is just one of us now. So cool your jets, Diane!]  Based on the many complaints from the public, town clerk – Mrs. Janet Brooks, seems to be unaware of this existing policy, or does not understand it, or just doesn’t follow it!

 The FOIL policy during the previous administration was ignored as was the procurement policy.

Based on information from the February 10th meeting, the purpose of the revised FOIL policy is to provide a more comprehensive and detailed description of the Town’s responsibility to provide information in a timely and comprehensive manner when demands for disclosure under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Act are received by the town clerk.  Among other things, the policy also re-identifies that it is the Town Clerk’s responsibility to respond to these requests based on timeframes established by the law, to keep a record of each request, and report to the Board on F.O.I.L. requests received.

At the February 10, 2014 meeting Mr. Norris and Mrs. Benway questioned the purpose of the Resolution and were very concerned as to whether or not Mrs. Brooks, the Town Clerk was involved in the preparation of the Resolution.  [Editor’s Note: There is no requirement or necessity for the Town Clerk to be involved in such a resolution. The resolution is a governing activity and is under the sole authority of the town board. The town clerk’s obligation and duty is to comply with the town board’s legislation and the law of New York! Besides, the board would have to catch her when she’s in, and that could be a problem, given her hours.] We the community must remind Ms Benway and Mr Norris that under Town Law the BOARD has the authority to prepare and adopt policy. We further remind Ms Benway and Mr Norris, and if necessary, Ms Brooks, that the CLERK has the obligation to comply with resolutions duly passed by the board. If the clerk has a question it should be presented like anyone else during public session and in the time allowed.  It should also be noted that  Mrs. Brooks’ known previous performance clearly demonstrates that not only did she not follow the simplistic policy of the O’Rorke Administration, she never took the initiative to ensure the taxpayers obtained requested information based on New York state law.  Under the NYS Town Law and as an elected official, Ms Brooks has the duty and responsibility to understand her duties and role as town clerk, to be responsive to the public no matter what directive she may have received from others, particularly if such directive was contrary to policy or law!

 It should be noted that Ms Brooks, at the December 2013 Board Meeting, expressed on the record how she could not keep up with the high volume of FOIL requests and recommended that the public be charged more money for their requests.  [Editor’s Note: Why more money, Ms Brooks? Should we dock you for the hours you don’t show up for work and apply that to offset the cost of fulfilling F.O.I.L. requests?] Ms O’Rorke, Mr Norris and David Wukitsch (then town attorney, since fired) supported her dilemma.  Individuals attending that meeting asked how many F.O.I.L. request Mrs. Brooks had received – she DID NOT KNOW!  Mrs. Brooks advised “that it was difficult to know” and  O’Rorke, Norris, Benway, Wukitsch supported her confusion and ignored residents’ questions!  This discussion was approximately 30 + minutes and Ms. Brooks had no factual information to support her claim nor did the O’Rorke board request it. Surprising?

At the meeting of February 10, 2014, Mr Norris advised that he had not had time to read the four – page F.O.I.L. policy so he requested vote be postponed.   No time to read 4 pages, Mr Norris? Incredible! Mr Dellisanti tabled (put it on the agenda for vote at a later date) the vote on the F.O.I.L. Resolution until the February 24, 2014 Town Board Meeting  to provide Mr. Norris ample time to read four pages.  [Editor’s Note: We do admit that Mr Norris has in the past allegedly suffered some psychiatric or psychological problems but let’s hope Mr Norris managed to get through that incredible volume of reading before the vote! Just what we needed: another Denis Jordan!]

Please note:  board member Van Etten identified that in 2013 ONLY NINE FOILS WERE SUBMITTED TO THE TOWN. [Editor’s Note: Geez, Ms Brooks, that’s mindboggling! How do you ever manage such a volume? Maybe you need another deputy clerk? Maybe more money? Nine F.O.I.L. requests in 2013 and you couldn’t manage. Poor kitten!]

RESOLUTION TO ESTABLISH HOURS OF THE TOWN CLERK’S OFFICE was presented to the Board by Supervisor Dellisanti on February 10, 2014

Although the newly hired town legal advisor confirmed the legality of the Resolution, boardmembers Benway, Norris, and town clerk Brooks disagreed that the town Board could require the office of the town clerk to be opened five days a week. The residents of this community have asked that the town clerk’s office be open for business five days a week.  Benway, Norris, Brooks then advised that they had documentation that the town’s lawyer was incorrect.  [Editor’s Note: Now Benway, Norris and Brooks are experts in the law? Our recent inquiries with the New York State Comptroller’s Office, the state agency that oversees town official operations, citing NYS Town Law, seem to disagree with their New Baltimore experts Benway, Norris and Brooks. What doe the New Baltimore Three Stooges know that the Comptroller’s examiners and lawyers don’t know?] They did not share this information with the lawyer or the supervisor prior to the meeting  even though both were available. [Editor’s Note: Imagine that! They didn’t share the information! If they had shared it they would have been told to take a hike and take their foolishness with them!]  Ms Brooks then advised that she would need MORE MONEY IN HER BUDGET TO DO THIS!  Mrs. Brooks is the second highest paid elected official in the Town of New Baltimore. (Dennis Jordan is the highest paid town official making more than $52,000 and can’t even keep accurate figures or do a purchase order!)  She is paid a salary of approximately $29,000+ a year, add on approximately $l0,000 in benefits and that comes to a cool $40,000 in taxpayer dollars.   Mrs. Brooks has the authority to appoint one first deputy clerk and two deputies (currently Marjorie Loux and Diane Jordan) but the town board has the authority to approve any compensation of deputy clerks.  [Editor’s Note: See this blog’s report on the NYS Town Law on this subject. Ms Brooks and her cronies have it all screwed up. They’re very confused.]. So why can’t the office be open to the public five days a week?   It should also be noted that Ms. Brooks was present in the clerk’s office at New Baltimore Town Hall only eight days in January 2014! [Editor’s Note: Does anyone smell the stench of corruption and misuse of public office here? We do!]

RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE HIGHWAY SUPERINTENDENT TO PURCHASE DIESEL FUEL AND #2 HEATING OIL FOR HIGHWAY USE    BY STATE CONTRACT FOR 2014

The newly elected board members, Dellisanti, VanEttan, Ruso discussed best practices with the Office of the State Comptroller, who recommended that passage of resolution in this matter was the best way to protect the financial interests of the community and the town.   Mr Jordan, Town of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent, an elected public servant, provided his version of the usage numbers to be used in the Resolution.  At the February 10, 2014 board meeting when Resolution was read and about to be voted on, Mr. Jordan DISAGREED WITH HIS OWN NUMBERS and did not want the board to vote on the resolution!!!!  

Although the board should have proceeded, Mr. Dellisanti acknowledged Mr. Jordan’s confusion/concern about the numbers he previously provided, and tabled the resolution for the  February 24, 2014, board meeting, thus providing Mr. Jordan more time to figure out how much fuel he used last year during the O’Rorke regime. [Editor’s Note: Now, dear readers, isn’t this all the evidence we need to show why it’s so important that purchase orders / requisitions, justifications for purchases, competitive bidding, and clear recordkeeping be made policy in Town Hall, just as Dellisanti, Ruso, and vanEtten are proposing?]

I have provided this information as a brief synopsis of the situation and as a report on the facts; this in no way should be interpreted to be a personal attack against any individual; it also does not reflect my personal opinion of our town’s public officials or employees.  This information is provided for the sole purpose of identifying current and past actions or lack of action by elected officials, that was not and continues not to be in the best interest of this community, and in some cases is outright untruthful or even illegal.

It is time for all of our elected officials to work as a team, and those who refuse should go!  It is their duty to negotiate, propose, resolve, implement, and adhere to policy legislated by the New Baltimore Town Board, while providing oversight and management, transparency and accountability that is fiscally sound and complies with the law.

Equally important is that each community member, young and old, regardless of political persuasion, play an integral part in this process of representative democratic governing.  It is the community who must ensure that officials hear and correctly understand our needs and expectations, and are reminded that good government is for and by the people; this can be achieved only by continued open and honest inputs from the community and  conscientious teamwork by our elected officials.

I hope that this letter has been informative and that at future New Baltimore town board meetings there is standing room only. You need to participate in all of our town board meetings.

Your neighbor,

AMV
A Resident of Town of New Baltimore

Seriously, people, Benway, Norris, Brooks, Jordan really need to be put in their places (that may be a state or federal corrections facility), because they are really taking this town of New Baltimore for a joy ride to hell! Leave a comment and let us know what you think or, better yet, get off your asses and attend New Baltimore town board meetings and find out for yourself what’s going on.
