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

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.

WTF! RC Teen Center Coin Drop in Glenmont!

Update: 1 Jan 13. Mr Michael Fisher has responded to this article. We have published his response in its entirety with no edits in the Comments section. Please read all the comments to this article.

We’re All Territorial and We Do Have To Consider Appearances and Impressions, Don’t We?

Ravena-Coeymans Teen Center Collecting in Glenmon?!?

Ravena-Coeymans Teen Center Collecting in Glenmont?!?

So what do you think you would say or your neighbors would say if, at the Four Corners junction on 9W in Ravena, the Bethlehem Center Sports Association were to set up shop, stop traffic, delay your trip home, while they’re collecting money from your RCS neighbors to fund their Bethlehem sports agenda? You’d probably say to yourself, “What in hell are they doing here? Get back to where you belong!” It’s only natural.

Bethlehem Center, NY (December 29, 2012) But that’s the situation we observed when approaching a long line of stopped cars and noting some fluorescent figures moving about in the intesection at Bethlehem Center at 9W and  Glenmont Road. We were doing errands and anxious to get home and thought to ourselves, “Oh, NO! Not an accident!” As the traffic inched towards the light we say that it wasn’t an accident but several people stopping cars and holding out containers. Now I thought, “Who are these people stopping traffic at a busy intersection, causing this back-up and delay?” Then a sloppily painted sign caught my eye and I felt really embarrassed: “Support the RC Teen Center!

More than 3 Decades of Corruption! Throw Them Out!

Maybe You Like the Way the Duplicated and Frequently Contradicting Operations of the Ravena and Coeymans Local Government Wastes Your Tax Dollars. Some of Us Don’t.

And Maybe You Like Being Told in So Many Words You Don’t Count When Your Local Elected Officials (that is, the little Royal Court that Calls Itself the Ravena Village Council) Do as They Damned Please Without Asking Your Opinion…

You Thinking What I’m Thinking?

And What’s Up With the Town Supervisor and Village Mayor and your Village Council and Town Board Officials, Aren’t They At All Interested in What’s Going on In the RCS School District? I’ve yet to see them attend a BoE meeting or make a statement at the public meetings. Shouldn’t there be some sort of collaboration or cooperation between the school district and the local government, after all, the children attend the school do live in their administrative territories. Or are the local politicos too busy conspiring, stealing, and duplicating efforts at your expense? (Coeymans Town Supervisor did send a “proclamation” a couple of months ago, but didn’t appear to present it; instead  superintentent Smith read it to the meeting.)

You’ll never vote them out, they’ve got more relatives to vote them in than New York City has cockroaches and bedbugs combined! (Or, you could put your own people on the ballot and campaign for them…)

My Advice is: Throw Them Out! There are laws and procedures to help you do that:

N.Y. PBO. LAW § 36 : NY Code – Section 36: Removal of town, village, improvement district or fire district officer by court
Any town, village, improvement district or fire district officer,…, may be removed from office by the supreme court for any misconduct, maladministration, malfeasance or malversation in office. An application for such removal may be made by any citizen resident of such town, village, improvement district or fire district or by the district attorney of the county in which such town, village or district is located, and shall be made to the appellate division of the supreme court held within the judicial department embracing such town, village, improvement district or fire district. Such application shall be made upon notice to such officer of not less than eight days, and a copy of the charges upon which the application will be made must be served with such notice.

N.Y. NYC. LAW § 9 : NY Code – Section 9: Removal of mayor
The mayor may be removed from office by the governor upon charges and after service upon him of a copy of the charges and an opportunity to be heard in his defense. Pending the preparation and disposition of charges, the governor may suspend the mayor for a period not exceeding thirty days.

N.Y. VIL. LAW § 4-412 : NY Code – Section 4-412:

The board of trustees
3(12) An officer or person who assumes to create a liability or appropriate money or property of the village without authority of law, or assents thereto, is personally liable for such debt, or to the village for such money or property. Each member of a village board present at a meeting thereof when such unlawful action is taken is deemed to have assented thereto, unless he expressly dissents and requests such dissent to be entered upon the minutes of the meeting. If any person shall have heretofore appropriated or shall hereafter appropriate money or property of the village, contrary to law, and the facts in relation thereto are known to the board of trustees, and, after this section as amended takes effect, such board fail for thirty days to bring an action against such person to recover such money or property, each member of the board having such knowledge shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and liable to removal from office unless within such period of thirty days he shall file with the village clerk a written request, signed by him, requesting the bringing of, such action or shall cause to be entered upon the minutes of a meeting of the board a motion made by him for the bringing of such action, or his vote in favor of such a motion.

This article will be continued with examples and discussion. Check back later…

FIGHT BACK!

More Child Abuse: “Get out and push the bus!”

A Bus Breaks Down on the NYS Thruway on Thursday and Students are Told to “Get Out And Push The Bus”
You heard me right:
ON THE NYS THRUWAY!!!

[ UPDATE: Unofficial Information Received Today (Oct. 6, 2012) Reports that the Offending Busdriver Has Been Suspended. There is no news yet on the busdrivers involved in the abandonment of the other two students. We should expect that the two busdrivers involved in the abandonment will be suspended, and that Dawn Hunter, transportation dispatcher, be disciplined.
RCS Parents Should Demand Nothing Less!]

School Bus Rear-Ended
What if kids were pushing it?

All we can say is that busdriver made a very, very bad decision! When we put someone in charge of a vehicle and fill that vehicle up with school children, can’t we reasonably expect that that busdriver gets some screening, some training, is trained with some knowledge of emergency procedures? Well, obviously, this busdriver didn’t have the brains to know what to do and when. But to have students get out of the bus and push it off the NYS Thruway is really an extreme example of idiocy and abuse to the max!

Wouldn’t it have been smarter to get the kids to safety on the grass, out of harm’s way, put on the flashers, screw the traffic?!? Wouldn’t a normally functioning mind in such a position of responsibility prioritize what needed to be done? Let’s see: FIRST GET THE KIDS TO SAFETY! NEXT: Everything else…. But it didn’t happen that way. Why?

THIS is WHY!!!

How is it possible that not only were the kids not moved to a safe area they were actually told to get out of the bus and to push the bus! I’m at a loss for words!

One parent wants an explanation and writes to the Superintendent, Elizabeth R. Smith, Brian Bailey, principal of the high school, and the the RCS board of education:

My son [name redacted] was bused from BOCES this afternoon, when his bus broke down on the NYS Thruway he was asked to push the bus out of the road along with several other students before the police arrived. I feel as though this is a huge safety concern. Is this legal? What is being done about this? When I go to work I have to feel that RCS is protecting my son. I do not feel that right now.”

“A little over two weeks ago my son was left to walk home down Route 9W because of the confusion with the buses. When will this stop?”

[Name Withheld by Request]

What are the other parents doing about this, I wonder? Will the Coeymanazis have something to say when the board of education starts chopping heads? Where are all the loudmouths in the RCS central school district now or ever when it comes right down to disciplining school personnel who are pervs or perps or just plain stupid?

Parents!
If You Don’t Stand Up NOW and Shout,
You’re Just As NEGLIGENT!

We’ve reported in one single week the facts that a bus aide abuses a special needs child and nothing’s done about it. A child is left behind, refused bus transportation home because of an obscure policy that hadn’t even gone into effect yet. And another child who is left abandoned when he gets confused as to which bus to board, and ends up walking home on Route 9W!

THIS or WORSE

The challenge: O.K. Brian Bailey, Jennifer Houck , Elizabeth R. Smith, Whalen, Edward “Teddy” Reville, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Deluca (Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry), Traver, Donna Leput-Hommel (maybe you can shed a tear or two about this at the next BoE meeting?), Josephinie O’Connor (forget about your weight, maybe your father can visit the busdriver and make a false claim), R.J. D’Esposito, Misuraca, Tom Dolan, Gary Vanderzee, and the rest of you loudmouths, “It’s for the kids!” chanters, anything to say? What now, loudmouths? Maybe you can discuss the real problems on your FaceBook garbage dumps?

What are we paying these idiots for?
To kill our kids?

Isn’t it time you parents stepped up to the plate and stopped gold plating turds and admit that someone in the school system, a principal, a superintendent, a director of transportation, a busdriver SOMEONE has to be held accountable.

Isn’t it time you parents and taxpayers came to your senses and realize that it’s the Coeymanazi’s lie that makes you believe that the Board of Education has any power to discipline without an outcry from the public! YOU have to start doing something before YOUR reps on the BoE can do anything.

Isn’t it time that you learn the difference between TRUTH and lies! As long as you get your information from FaceBook sites like RCS Friends and More or the Cathy’s Coeymanazi Clucks Club, or from the tabloid rags you read, you’re DOOMED to continue to be their stoogies! Wake up, people!

 Or are you waiting to be called by the police to come and identify a body? Your choice, parents!

Drugs Kill? So Does Stupidity!

Coeymans Police Suppress Freedom of Speech!

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson: If you do not cease and desist immediately from your malicious mischief and vandalism in violation of our First Amendment civil rights, we will file a federal complaint against you, the Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymans town board, and David Soares.
You’ve been served with notice
!

Coeymans Police Are Running Around Frantically
Silencing Free Speech!

Freedom Of Speech, Of The Press, Of Association, Of Assembly And Petition
This Set Of Guarantees, Protected By The First Amendment, Comprises What We Refer To As Freedom Of Expression. The Supreme Court Has Written That This Freedom Is “The Matrix, The Indispensable Condition Of Nearly Every Other Form Of Freedom.” Without It, Other Fundamental Rights, Like Even The Right To Vote, Would Wither And Die.

So, how would you feel about police officers cruising through the community with a roll of duct tape, stopping people on the street and taping their mouths shut; other officers stuffing up citizens’ ears with earplugs to prevent them from hearing certain messages. You can bet they’re not the messages that the police or the local administration want you to hear! That’s what’s happening in Ravena and Coeymans, New York…

Get your filthy hand off!!

Well, citizens, residents, that’s what’s happening in the Town of Coeymans: Censorship without due process is being unlawfully enforced by at least one Coeymans police officer, Ryan Johnson, in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution!

Yes, it’s Ryan Johnson [again!] who is cruising through town, stopping at local businesses, and removing public information postings that he doesn’t seem to like. Included among those postings is a poll page showing a cartoon of Johnson doing what he allegedly does best: abusing citizens. The second is one that has little or nothing to do with Johnson, roving rogue cop, and is an announcement of a defense fund planned for a public servant who has been unlawfully harassed by the Coeymanazis and which would also be used to support families prosecuting for bullying under the Child Dignity Act!

HOW DARE YOU RYAN JOHNSON! WHO APPOINTED YOU CUSTODIAN OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT IN COEYMANS?!? WHO EMPOWERED YOU, RYAN JOHNSON, TO ACT AS CHIEF CENSOR OF FREE SPEECH IN COEYMANS?!?

Coeymanazi Motto
They’re all for free speech…their own!

(Speech Bubbles: “I’m all for free speech…unless I find it personally offensive.”
Double click any image to see a larger view.)

This is yet another instance of the Coeymans police depriving local residents and citizens of their civil rights. Now, our question is, AGAIN:

Where are you, FBI?
That’s just a cry for help. But aren’t you guys supposed to be investigating occurrences of violations of civil rights?
Public corruption and abuse?

We know where the FBI is and so should YOU:
200 McCarty Avenue
Albany, NY 12209
Phone: (518) 465-7551
Fax: (518) 431-7463
Special Agent in Charge
Clifford C. Holly
Assistant Special Agents in Charge
– Richard J. Licht
– Kathryn Peterson

This is really very serious crime being committed by Guess who? Law enforcement! But Ryan Johnson is just a tool, a mindless zombie who the lead Coeymanazies are  using to suppress residents and citizens.

They’re Poisoning The Community!

Lead Coeymanazis, like all enemies of the Constitution, need henchmen, and so Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate! Don’t let that happen!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno) have thugs like Ryan Johnson do their dirty work for them…or Dirty-Hands Deluca can step in when they need a baggy suit. Our shit-head Albany County District Attorney, David Soares (who is also seeking re-election in November! Don’t let that happen, either!) turns a blind eye to all of this–ever wonder why? Just check our our previous posts showing how tainted, compromised, corrupt, incestuous the connections are in Albany County! It’s there in black and white…it’s there in black and white because its out of the reach of the Coeymanazis!

 Ladies and Gentlemen, Residents, Citizens…All of you soon to be reduced to deaf and dumb zombies! We all know that to kill a snake, any low-life, you have to cut off the head! Yes, you have to go after the Ryan Johnsons, the monkies, the tools–but remember, you’ll have to pay his legal bills if you do, the Coeymanazi-owned-and-operated town administration will defend him–but you have to cut off the heads of the monster, and those heads are: Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno; looks like Greg Teresi took the easy–and smart–way out of the vipers nest, he resigned!)

Just to be clear on this issue: NO police officer has any right whatsoever to remove any public posting that is not in clear violation of current law! That is an abuse of your civil rights to express yourself and to be heard. It is a crime against the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. It must NOT be tolerated!

His Spawn
Are Alive and Well
In Coeymans!

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson is Out of Order
Both Johnson AND his Coeymanazi Handlers/Bosses Must be Prosecuted!

Protect your constitutional rights! Print out a copy of this article and hand it to a friend, a relative, a co-worker! They’ll thank you for it!

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Be Pissed!

Of Incest and Banjos

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Most Readers Will Relate to the Term “Incest” Sooner Than “Nepotism”  So We Chose to Use Incest Because It Has a Stronger Taboo Associated With It, and It’s Pretty Damned Wierd.
But You’ll Understand When You Read On.

Ravena & Coeymans:
Relaxing after some serious “string-pulling.”

The website for the Village of Ravena sports the heading,

“The Village of Ravena, New York, ‘The Friendship Community'”

Yes, I know, after reading that you’re feeling a bit queasy, nauseous but you still want to burst out either screaming or laughing. Go ahead! Get it out of your system, and then read on. You’ll understand why Ravena calls itself the “Friendship Community,” and why it’s joined at the hip with Coeymans. There they lie, each in the other’s incestuous embrace. As one knowledgeable contributor puts it: “It’s better than banjos!” (making tongue-in-cheek reference to the 1972 thriller movie, “Deliverance”, which features the famous banjo-guitar duel).

First of all, some connections (just as an example). This list is by no means complete; that would take more space than we have here. But it does give you some idea of the visible connections–there’s much more string-pulling (no pun intended) going on behind closed doors!

Warning: If at any time while reading this you hear banjos, be afraid. Be very afraid!

So let’s get started…we’ll start with

  • The Godfather: John J. Biscone, Esq., (now dead) Ravena village attorney into the 90’s ( back When Mayor Bailey was Mayor )
  • Mary Biscone, Democrat clambake fundraiser par excellence, who funded the campaigns for  The Democrat party (locally known as the demo-catic party), long before the RCS Athletic Association started funding selected political campaigns in the RCS district.
  • Brenden Baynes takes over law office of Joe Rotello; Rotello is working as a clerk in the Appeals Court. Rotello was village and town attorney, too for a few years. He also did the real estate for Oakbrook Manor, too, when he was both village and town attoney and working at the Godfather’s and now Michale Biscone’s Ravena law office, that is, until people caught on and raised hell about the nepotism–his father, Tom Rotello was on the Ravena village board.
  • Michael J.Biscone, lawyer in Ravena, younger son of the Godfather John J. Biscone
  • John T. Biscone, lawyer, Michael J.’s older brother, son of the Godfather John J.Biscone
  • Joseph C. Teresi, judge, New York State Supreme Court, Albany County, great friend and collaborator of the Godfather John J. Biscone; Joe Teresi was village/town attorney 25 years ago; worked with Godfather too!
  • Gregory J. Teresi, present Ravena village attorney and Town of Coeymans attorney, son of Joseph C. Teresi
  • Veronica “Ronnie” Fori, Ravena mayor John  T. Bruno’s  mayor’s cousin and royal pain in the arse to a couple of local property owners. This little minx is also alleged to be Jerry Deluca’s premier source on just about everything!
  • Nancy J Bicone-Warner, wife of Village of Ravena justice Harold Warner, is a Biscone and is a substitute teacher at the RCS High School, former Village deputy clerk/treasurer; currently Ravena  trustee (term ends in 2016)
  • Josephine Biscone-Dority married Bill Bruno; Ravena village clerk/treasurer at same time as Nancy Biscone-Warner, and is on RCS library board
  • John T. Bruno, mayor-king of Ravena since 80’s, on the Village board since the mid-70’s
  • Joseph C. Rotello, lawyer in Ravena, is related to the Biscones (cousins)
  • John Neri, deputy mayor in 90’s; Ravena  builder and long-time partner with Michael J. Biscone in Harcone Realty
  • Josie Biscone-Dority-Bruno, Ravena village clerk/treasurer with Nancy Biscone-Warner her deputy; sales associate at Sturges Realty at time of village property sales (see below). “Josie” is now working for Prudential Manor Homes, REALTORS®.
  • George Dardiani, cafeteria manager at the high school and former village judge; his wife is school nurse at PBC; Dardiani has been a Coeymans town justice since ’92, and has been in the thick of this incestuous and corrupt mix for two decades. From his perch, which he shares with the Coeymans Police Department and Coeymans town administration, he has been meting out “justice” in Coeymans without a clue about judicial ethics! Surprising? Shouldn’t be.
  • Enter Phillip Crandell, Coeymans town justice elected last November to be a town justice and acting Ravena village justice (appointed by the Ravena monarch John Bruno).
  • Michael Albano is the son of former justice Sylvester Albano, and is Coeymans town jusice Phillip Crandal’s father-in-law. Michael Albano is the owner of Albano Realty of Ravena (see below).
  • Harry A. Sturges, former town justice and shop teacher at theRCSHigh School, is the owner of Sturges Realty in Ravena. Sturges is now a retired broker.
  • Lous Neri is an attorney who worked with John T. Biscone, and is cousin to John Neri deputy mayor and business partner with Mike Biscone (Editor’s note: this all apparently in violation to the Village of Ravena Code of Ethics (now is that an oxymoron if there ever was one!) written by John J. Biscone, signed by Josie Biscone Dority and in violation of the federal Hatch Act.

Had enough yet? We think so. Now that you have some of the connections let’s move on the second part of our example.

Warning: Are you still listening? If at any time while reading this you hear banjos, be afraid. Be very afraid!

In about 1996 three village-owned properties went on the block for sale when the Village made plans to occupy the former Ravena elementary school on Mountain St. The village properties put up for sale were the old village hall at 171 Main Street, the old police department at 158 Main Street, and  the old fire house at 170 Main Street in Ravena. The question was who would be given the listings to sell the properties. The village put out a request for bids and Albano Realty came back with an offer of 5% commission; Sturges Realty came back with an offer of 10% commission on the sale of the properties. The contract to sell the properties is awarded to Sturges Realty (Harry Sturges) despite the fact that he was the higher bidder. Mayor Bruno was strategically absent from the meeting when then deputy mayor Neri took the issue into executive session and then came out to award the contract to Sturges. It gets better…

Albano very civilly reminds the village that his was the lower bid and understands that the Village ‘may have had other things in mind.’

Josie Biscone-Dority-Bruno, as we mentioned above, was at the time a sales associate at Sturges Realty (former town  justice Harry Sturges) sells the properties and shares the commissions with her associate, Harry Sturges. The buildings sell far below their assessed values.

Here’s why…

Sturges Realty (Harry) buys 171 Main Street for his offices after selling its previous location on 9W to RiteAid. Biscone and Neri buy the 158 Main Street property.  And a third buyer acquires the 170 Main Street property.

The outcome: The village of Ravena disposes of three properties through a bidder who not only submits the higher of the submitted bids, but is a close associate of the village of Ravena and employs a sales associate who is closely associated with the ‘ruling family’ in Ravena and with the incumbent executive (Biscone, Bruno).

Sorry! Couldn’t Hold It!

Then Sturges Realty (Harry Sturges), also with an “in” at Village hall,  picks up one of the properties, 171 Main Street, and two local ‘in the family’ attorneys, Biscone and  John Neri (Harcone Realty), pick up the other property 158 main . Get it? But what’s more, these civic-minded people all purchase the properties at a price much lower than their assessed values (of course, while also avoiding taxes on the assessed value of the properties) and the values of surrounding comparable properties, lowering the values of the surrounding properties, and reducing the tax base overall! We’re doing the history on the third property, the old Ravena fire house at 170 Main Street.

The Lesson (there’s no moral because there’s no morality): You can be very, very unethical without being illegal; and very illegal without being unethical. But if you’re not on the A-list. You lose no matter what!

At about this time our friend Gerald “Jerry”  Deluca gets himself elected to the RCS board of education promising to use his “political connections,” to get things done for the village and the schools…like we needed more “political connections”? Like your connections to saddle the community with a money pit swimming pool? No, thanks, Jerry! Keep your “connections” for all the good they’ve done residents and businesses in the district over the past 20 years!

Now, what you need to do is click on this link Can You Explain This, Jerry? to go to the discussion of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and his “connections.”

After you’ve read that, you need to go to this link  This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it, and connect all the dots. Good Luck!

None of all of this is benefitting you, your children, your family, your business, your community. In fact, it’s very damaging. All of this is happening only for those whose agendas and pockets are benefitting. And when you connect the dots you’ll see how all of this reaches deep into the Albany County District Attorney’s Office, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, the courts, and, if we are to believe Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s published résumé, into the Department of Environmental Conservation (the DEC; does that explain some things in the town, business people?), the State Assembly, and beyond!

After all that don’t you just want to cough up?

Are you still wondering why nothing gets done in this community? Are you still wondering why we’re crying CORRUPTION? RETALIATION? COERCION?

Stay Tuned for Part II: Residents Complain…OUCH!

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students…Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School Has It ALL!

Bully Assault & Battery at
RCS High School

With the New York State Dignity Act, an important anti-bullying law going into effect this month, it is baffling, especially in view of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools’ very poor record in curtailing and preventing school bullying –teacher-on-student, teacher-on-teacher, and student-on-student bullying– how it is possible that a particularly brutal attack could happen in the RCS high school only last week!

Here’s what happened and what was caught on video:

A male ninth-grade student is attempting to pass through a door. Another male student appears to be making way for the first student to pass but then jumps the first student from behind. The attacker brutally hits the first student in the head and then claws his neck, leaving numerous lacerations and fingernail marks on the first student’s neck.

The first student was able to free himself from the attacker’s grip but not without injuries.

The entire incident was caught on video tape. The parents of the injured student demanded that the New York State Police be called; the Coeymans Police responded but were allegedly sent away by the school principal, who was instructed by the parents to allow only the State Police to investigate.

Because of fears of retaliation against the injured student that were expected on the basis of previous bullying incidents at the high school, several of which were directly attributed to the instigation of teachers having made imprudent and inappropriate remarks relating to a student, the parent of the injured student had earlier called the school to advise administration and teachers to be vigilant that day. A lot of good that precaution did!

We have previously reported on the bullying problems at the RCS high school, the reports of a teacher, Matt Miller, proclaiming himself to students to be an atheist when not reciting the “one nation under God” part of the pledge of allegiance (see  “One Nation Under God”…Maybe not.)  (Miller is president of the RCS teachers association/union), two teachers at least are known to have made inappropriate remarks about students or student’s family members which led directly to bullying incidents (see Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS and  Real Bullying at School is By the Teachers), school administration has either been slow to respond or totally non-responsive to incidents, including even a gun on school grounds (see Gun at School & Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see… ), and the attacker in the most recent incident, a 15-year-old minor and resident of the Ravena community, Oakbrook Manor, is a self-proclaimed neo-nazi!

Because the attacker is a minor, the New York State Police have allegedly informed the parents of the injured student that no charges can be made against the attacking student! This was clearly a premeditated violent assault and battery on another student without provocation whatsoever! What’s this shite about not being able to charge the attacker? That’s utter nonsense! Charge the juvenile criminal and do it now or expect to see more bold attacks…and more lawsuits, including criminal charges against administrators and teachers! (On top of everything else, the RCS district is plagued with a corrupt and tainted police department and a serious retaliation problem. See Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?).

Teachers are mandated reporters of such violence under the Dignity Act but at RCS they’re involved with the bullying! Many of the teachers don’t have the brains or the training to know the difference between opening their mouths and letting crap fly out and keeping their manure chutes shut!

And Brian Bailey, principal of the RCS high school, allegedly responds that he “Will take care of it [?]” (RCS has a record of non-response (see Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying…)  Idiots! Brian Bailey is barely able to cross the street unassisted (see INCREDIBLE!!!)…what in hell is he going to do about this violent assault and battery on a student on school grounds? A neo-nazi, no less! Bailey can’t even be relied on to implement emergency security procedures when there’s a gun on school grounds! Who cares WHY the gun’s there! It’s there! You ask WHY? after you implement the security procedures, you DORK!

If school violence is not enough for your tax dollars, RCS residents and taxpayers, we also have our greedy little friend Matt Miller double-dipping and getting a stipend on top of his teacher salary (see A Fable of a Swimming Pool and Acquatic Sports and other Horror Stories). We have a RCS Athletic Association that’s come under fire for alleged criminal activity like misrepresenting itself as a non-profit, failing to file the required tax disclosures, illegally misusing Association funds for political purposes (see Sports Scandal Quiz: RCS Sports Association? and James Latter). There’s also the sociopath wanabe teacher, Josephine O’Connor, who does a “He called me fat!” dance for voters (see Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!) and then gets a village idiot, her estranged father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey,  to harass and intimidate and then to file a false charge against the president of the Board of Education, getting the innocent man arrested! (see This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Criminals Gone Wild, Part II) And then we have the reall perp and pervs, over and above Josephine O’Connor, who go unscathed despite egregious violations of confidentiality in violation of the federal FERPA law, like James Latter  (see James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?).

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Recently Put to The Vote and Approved a $41,729,185 budget for the 2012-13 school year. While the proposed budget allegedly reduces spending by $708,681, or 1.7 percent compared with the current school year it increased the tax levy on property owning residents by an additional 6.8 percent! The final total was 1797 Yes votes to 1602 No votes (53 percent to 47 percent). The very close, almost a tie, provides a clear clue as to the sharp division in the community regarding this highly charged and controversial issue, not to mention the brutality and nastiness of the Yes! supporters in the campaigning leading to this vote. A large number of voting irregularities are currently under investigation by various authorities. (See More Irregularities in the Voting?, Gun at School & Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see…,, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)

Your Tax Dollars Working For You and Your Children!

Bullies are Pussies!

An Open Letter to the Albany County Sheriff and the Albany County DA

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

An Open Letter of Concern and Demand for Investigation

TO:

Mr Daniel P. McCoy
Albany County Executive
112 State Street, Room 200
Albany, NY 12207
Mr Craig D. Apple Sr.
Albany County Sheriff
Albany County Sheriff’s Office
16 Eagle Street
Albany, NY 12207
Mr P. David Soares
Albany County District Attorney
County Judicial Center
6 Lodge Street
Albany, NY 12207

Gentlemen:

It is sometimes remarkable that situations and circumstances that most of us clearly acknowledge as common-knowledge, because of their persistence and perfidiousness, and other situations and circumstances are assumed to be conspicuously demanding of the attention of our elected public officials, assuming that they are even minimally conscious, lucid, and interested.

We naturally do not expect any serious and intelligent human being to rely in major part, much less wholly, on the reporting in the local rags, the Times Union, and other media, such as the local news comedy hours, but we do expect that one of the most effective means of public discourse, the Internet, cannot possibly have failed to capture your attention–especially in view of the fact that we have placed the publications directly under your noses– at least in matters concerning your region of responsibility and your particular and specific offices and operations.

Sadly, we find either that you are ignorant of what is going on right under your noses, or even more sadly, you are uninterested. In either case, please accept this letter as a public wake-up call.

This blog has closely scrutinized the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk central school district and the situation in the town of Coeymans, both in your jurisdictions of Albany County, New York. What this blog, its writers, and its contributors have revealed is scandalous, criminal, and in desperate need of investigation and prosecution. We shall not misuse valuable space in this letter to rehash what has been discussed extensively and in detail in the numerous postings on this blog but we will cite two disturbing situations that require investigation within the purview of the Office of the District Attorney and of the Albany County Sheriff, two eminently important offices on which a great many residents, citizens, and visitors in Albany County depend for their safety and security, physical, psychological, and spiritual.

On the example of the town of Coeymans, this blog has reported numerous instances of apparent corruption in the Coeymans Police Department, managed by one Gerald Darlington. The Coeymans Police Department enjoys an unenviable reputation, and has had the reputation for many years of inefficiency, corruption, retaliation, and conflicts of interest. Nothing has changed but it has become unimaginably worse; it is the duty and obligation of the hierarchy in law enforcement and the executive, under which law enforcement falls in terms of governance, to investigate, audit, correct, and if required, to prosecute in these situations.

But how can the citizens of Coeymans or anywhere else expect or even hope for this necessary clean-up to be in any way successful if the very executive and law enforcement offices, whose mandate it is to investigate and to prosecute, are themselves compromised and tainted?

As mentioned above, the Coeymans Police Department is managed by a so-called chief, Gregory Darlington. The executive law enforcement office in the county, the office of the District Attorney P. David Soares, employs at least two very close relatives of Mr Darlington: Darlington’s wife is secretary to DA P. David Soares, and Darlington’s daughter is a prosecutor in Mr Soares’ office. This begs the question, Mr Soares, of how you can possibly maintain any level of security and confidentiality in your office and, should the occasion arise, how you can ensure that any complaints arriving in your office will receive impartial attention and, if necessary, investigation, when two close relatives of one of the very individuals you are being asked to investigate are in key positions in your office? Such an incredible situation does nothing to inspire confidence in the ethical operations of the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

Some time ago, during the very vitriolic and savage school budget campaigns that ravaged this community, which continue with vendettas being satisfied and retaliation by those who cannot accept the nature of the community and get on with business, we made clear recommendations, having identified the nepotism, the conflicts of interest, and the corruption rampant in the Coeymans Police Department, that residents who do not feel safe calling the Coeymans Police for assistance, should instead call the Albany County Sheriff or the New York State Police. We published a Complaints Contact Sheet to assist those anxious residents. This lack of confidence in the Coeymans Police Department is longstanding, as is the common-knowledge practice of retaliation and coercion practiced by the Coeymans police officers against residents.

Since our recommendation, we have received disturbing reports from several residents that having called the Albany County Sheriff for assistance, they found that the Albany County Sheriff personnel, instead of responding directly, forwarded to the call without the residents’ knowledge to the Coeymans police, who appeared at the rather surprised residents’ homes and, in one instance, at the RCS High School. Why would the Albany County Sheriff’s department personnel refuse to respond? We may have the answer to this question (see below).

A further disturbing incident occurred last week when a local business owner, a woman, attempted file an harassment complaint with the Coeymans Police Department, and the officer on duty there, one Kerry Thompson, refused to take the complaint. Officer Thompson is married to Gregory Darlington’s sister, and Kerry Thompson is also a law enforcement employee of the Albany County Sheriff. The same questions put to Mr Soares are here put to Mr Apple, Albany County Sheriff: Given this situation in which the Albany County Sheriff is a recourse for residents and citizens fearful of the local Coeymans police, and given the situation that the Albany County Sheriff is necessarily involved in confidential investigations that have been taken out of the hands of the Coeymans Police Department for reasons of retaliation by the Coeymans Police Department, how can the Albany County Sheriff, Mr Apple, ensure that those investigations are secure and confidential and that the interests and privacy of the citizen resident are safeguarded, when you have on your staff an individual, Kerry Thompson, who is so closely associated not only with the Coeymans Police Department as an employee of that department, but also is married to the sister of the Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington. How, Mr Apple, can you ensure any security and confidentiality at all under these circumstances? How, Mr Apple, is it that you can reconcile the obvious ethical discrepancies between Kerry Thompson’s employment with the Albany County Sheriff’s department and his intimate association with the corrupt and tainted Coeymans Police Department?

Moreover, we have on this blog reported on the multiple conflicts of interest and have alleged other misconduct of one of the employees on the Coeymans Police Department, one Gerald Deluca. Deluca is intimately involved with a number of individuals and activities in the county and in the community that, under normal circumstances, would raise serious ethical if not legal questions, and would likely lead to at least ethical, if not criminal criminal, investigation of the myriad conflicts of interest. Deluca is employed by a number of special interest and lobbying entities including but not limited to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Automotive Recyclers Association of New York (ARANY), the Main Street Small Business Coalition (MSSBC), Deluca Public Affairs, all of which serve to compromise any appearance of impartiality and objectivity in Deluca’s police investigative work at the Coeymans police department. We wonder very seriously how this has for so long, sirs, successfully escaped your attentions, and whether that circumstance was intentional or accidental? We now bring these matters to your attention by way of this blog.

We would like to mention also Deluca’s inappropriate associations with highly politically charged groups in the RCS community and his retaliative conduct in delaying important criminal investigations, one of which after six (6) months delay, had to be turned over by the resident to the County Sheriff’s department, intimidation of political opponents, failure to investigate criminal campaign sign investigations, undue influence and conspiracy with one close friend and board of education associate, Josephine O’Connor, and the conspiratorial arrest and abuse of due process of the RCS board of education president (with the collaboration of Kerry Thompson acting as a Coeymans police officer)!

Naturally, a properly conducted investigation of these circumstance is likely to uncover much, much more by way of impropriety and criminality, not the least in terms of multiple conflicts of interest, corruption, breaches of due process, abuse of police power, and much more in the Coeymans administration. We would expect that a complete audit of law enforcement records and activities, as well as interviewing of those residents and citizens who have served the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the Coeymans courts with complaints would further serve the purposes of a good faith investigation of the widespread misconduct and corruption in both town governance and in law enforcement in this community. We would also expect that the backgrounds of the current employees of the Coeymans Police Department be carefully scrutinized for prior conduct and convictions that would make them unfit or at least undesirable for law enforcement work.

So, Mr County Executive, Mr District Attorney, and Mr County Sheriff, we hereby serve notice upon you all of our well-founded concern for security and confidentiality in your departments, of our concern for the ability of your offices to operate impartially and objectively, of our concern that your offices are, by virtue of the inappropriate and unethical degrees of relationship between key members of your staff and key persons of interest in the Coeymans Police Department and others in the administration and governance of the town of Coeymans, and demand that you appropriately audit, investigate, and if necessary to prosecute.

We urge, No! we demand that you respond affirmatively to our call for investigations and audit of the Coeymans law enforcement machine, and for correction of these scandalous circumstances of grave concern, and for the prosecution of any criminal conduct found.

For and on behalf of concerned citizen residents,

The Editor

This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Sometimes You Just Need To Sit Down and Write Things Out to Get a Real Feel for What’s Going On Around You. We Did And Here’s What We Came Up With…

Coeymans at Work

For about two months now we’ve been reporting on what’s going on right under your noses. It’s all stuff that you are not hearing about in the newspapers, the News Herald, the Daily Mail, the Times Union, who should be reporting and investigating this scandalous situation. We’ve encouraged you to complain, to fight back, to call the New York State Education Department, the FBI, the County Sheriff, and others. To stand up, speak out, fight back, take back your town, and peace of mind. Well, here are some thoughts and facts for you to chew on and to think about:

FACTS AND NOTES

See our accompanying letter,  An Open Letter to the Albany County Sheriff and the Albany County DA.

  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is employed by the Town of Coeymans in the Coeymans Police Department
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca works very intimately with Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with Yes! side in budget debates (see our article, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with teachers side on BoE
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca has conspicuous influence with Coeymans Police Department and with its members
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a former member of the RCS board of education and served as president for a time. After the scandal of his adulterous affair with his now partner Cathy (Long) Deluca, he was not re-elected and his partner, Cathy (Long) Deluca, lost her bid for relection. The Deluca legacy to the RCS central school district was the money-pit swimming pool (which was slipped in on the residents in the budget after failing to pass several times; a Deluca sneak job).
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and the other loser candidates (most of his public following is made up of people who ran for office but lost) making up his entourage has been on a merciless campaign of misinformation and abuse of the present non-teacher supporters on the RCS board of education. Delucal heads the so-called Coemanazis [the Losers Club].
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a so-called police investigator and investigates local requests for law enforcement assistance (which raises many questions, considering he receives a check from the State of New York, and has quite a number of other jobs, some raising questions of conflict of interest and worse. See below for more details. And see our article on this blog,  Can You Explain This, Jerry?) There is apparently considerable evidence for Deluca’s involvement in criminal retaliation and coercion. (The Albany County Sheriff’s Department finall got involved and kicked some Coeymans ass; the investigation is now underway. Lost again, Jerry!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca directly involved in retaliation and coercion, but has not yet been charged!
  • Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) apparently works for Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, which may explain why the rogue Jerry Deluca and his accomplices has free hand in Coeymans.
  • Gregory Darlington, before he was hired to the Coeymans Police Department, was a garbage collector! He’s still collecting garbage and putting it in police uniforms. Most of the derelicts and refuse that was thrown off the Coeymans P.D. by former chief Scott Giroux, including on information and belief, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and others, were hired back by Darlington!
  • Ryan Johnson, another rogue at the Coeymans Police Department, was previously in the military and deployed to the Mid East. He never adapted to civilian law enforcement and still thinks he’s in the military. Heavy handed, abusive. But on information and belief he was charged at least 4 times for perjury. Has this man ever undergone psychological evaluation for fitness to be in law enforcement, we wonder? Could he have been adversely affected by his military experiences?
  • Officer Kerry Thompson of the Coeymans Police Department is married to Darlington’s sister; this is the same Officer Thompson who, in retaliation, refused to take a woman’s harassment complaint against Joseph Edward Tracey, father of Deluca’s close friend and board of education member, Josephine O’Connor! Thompson is also with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Cozy, eh?
  • Gregory Teresi, a lawyer who is serving as both Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans attorney, is the son of the notoriously infamous Joseph Teresi (NYS Supreme Court, Albany County). Read more about good ol’ dad’s escapades at Teresi: Part I. Fear the worst: Like father, like son! A dynasty of corruption!
  • The Coeymans town justice, George Dardiani, violated just about every section of the New York State Rules of Judicial Conduct, and broadcasted his bias and prejudice by publically displaying his political support for the Yes! side in the 2012-13 budget battle by displaying a Vote Yes! (ít’s for the kids) sign on his front lawn!  A complaint has been filed.
  • Between the activities of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) in the budget controversy and the attempts to remove board of education members tainted and compromised Coeymans Police Department, and the public announcement of bias and prejudice by a judge on the Coeymans town court (George Dardiani), there cannot be any reasonable expectation whatsoever of justice in the town of Coeymans (no convicting any No! sign vandals or anyone involved in criminal activity against anyone openly opposing the budget or the teachers union can continue their criminal activities in Coeymans with no fear of apprehension!)
  • Because of the collaboration and conspiracy between members of the Coeymans Police Department and the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, and the seeding of the Coeymans Police Department with known criminals and delinquents (McKenna, Johnson) protecting them on the Coeymans Police Department who, because of the favors and protection and support they are receiving from key members in the Coeymans Police Department, and the support received from the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, are key instruments in the campaign of retaliation and coercion by the Coeymans Police Department and abetted by the Ravena village and the Coeymans town court. (See our article on this blog, Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!)
  • The Coeymans Town Court with it’s tainted and corrupt justice George Dardiani (former cafeteria manager, completely ga-ga about the Rules of Judicial Conduct), and the tainted and corrupt Ravena village court with its jugdge Harold Warner (ex-cop, still-cop-at-heart so-called judge, TAINTED & COMPROMISED); Crandell, a Town of Coeymans town justice is still under scrutiny and had better behave for now, unless something comes up to show he’s in bed with the rest! (In fact, George Dardiani did not recuse himself from the Krzykowski actions, despite the fact that Dardiani was in bed with Deluca and Co. The fact that Dardiani issued a bench arrest warrant for a local resident but the resident was never served with the summons in the first place! (Despite repeated requests by the resident, the Coeymans court was unable to come up with the original summons! Isn’t that odd?) Odd that this should be a controversial board of education member and a local businessperson, who was cited by the DEC! That is “odd,” isn’t it, Jerry? You want to tell us something, Jerry?)
  • Deluca is closely involved with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the DEC, activities and has been working with them (How? He has no background in environment! He’s supposed to be working as a police investigator since about 1982!) and lists himself as “executive director” of a special interest automotive scrap organization called ARANYAutomotive Recyclers of New York–(Now, how did he qualify for that one?). He’s also running Deluca Public Affairs (no not his usual affairs) and an entity called the Main Street Small Business Corporation. Do you wonder why local business people are experiencing so many problems with the DEC, and why local scrapyard operators and others are having problems with the DEC? Shouldn’t we ask Gerald “Jerry” Deluca about his relationships with the DEC and ARANY why there are so many problems? (O.K., Jerry, we’re asking now!) (See our article on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?)
  • Complaints about Coeymans Police Department likely to be handled by AlbanyCountyD.A. David Soares’ office…but Darlington’s wife works there…Gregory Darlington’s wife works forAlbany County D.A. as secretary to Soares!
  • If that isn’t enough for you try this on for size: Coeymans town justice Harold Warner’s daughter also works in Soares’ office! Remember Hal Warner, the ex-cop playing at town justice–and if you think teachers stick together like shite to a show, you don’t don’t know how tight cops are…or how close they are to the DA’s office! Does it get any more incestuous?!?
  • Albany County D.A. David Soares’ office is compromised and tainted by conflict of interest between the best interests of the public and gatekeeper Mrs Darlington; what does that mean when disciplining Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington, and the Coeymans P.D.
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of political involvements of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) (e.g. harassment and intimidation of local business owners, harassment and intimidations of board of education members and their families, retaliation and coercion, non-investigation of sign vandalism to No! vote signs)
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s involvement with teachers and support of Yes! group…(e.g. arrest of BoE president connected with father of BoE member falsely claiming an abusive phone call; Coeymans police “chief” Darlington can’t seem to get the incident report together. Imagine that!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s and Coeyman’s P.D. involvement in retaliation against BoE members and others to coerce silence or collaboration (e.g. violation of the provisions of the Americans With Disabilities Act-ADA,  arrest of BoE president; various delaying tactics in police investigations; harassment and intimidation of residents (numerous complaints of police misconduct; we have at least four (4) formal complaints in our possession!))
  • Questionable integrity of Coeymans Police Department members (e.g. Johnson, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department), Laviano, and others). Are they faithfully and impartially serving and protecting YOU?
  • Attempts by Gerald “Jerry” and Cathy (Long) Deluca, David and Amy Bartlett, Donna Leput Hommel, Josephine O’connor, James Latter, and others to unsuccessfully remove RCS board of education members leads to secret meetings and attempts to “discipline or remove” board members. (Search our blog for articles on any of these perps and read about their mischiefmaking!) (See our articles on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?, We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!, Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)
  • Loss of majority of teachers’ supporters on RCS CSD board of education continues with heightened clear and palpable increase in clandestine retaliation and coercion methods to achieve same purpose of removing non-teacher supporters from the RCS board of education by other methods: conspiracy and retaliation (the most conspicuous and underhanded conspiracy was to use Joe TRACEY (father of board of education member Josephine O’Connor) to falsely accuse the BoE president of misconduct, resulting in the BoE president’s arrest, and then the retaliatory tactics of the Coeymans Police Department in refusing to promptly provide a copy of the police report on the arrest)
  • The Coeymans Police Department is clearly conspiring with certain elements of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk district, including certain members of the current board of education, unsuccessful bidders for seats on the board of education, elements supporting certain controversial and political agendas in the district, most notably the 2012-13 RCS school budget in support of certain special interest groups, notably the teachers association, and teacher-related members of the BoE
  • The Coeymans Police Department is retaliating against family members of the feared blogger in the idiotic hope that reports such as this one will stop and the blogger will disappear (Sorry, Jerry, it’s not going to happen!)
  • And not the least of the corrupt and unlawful practices in the RCS district, do we really have to remind any of you of the gross and scandalous irregularities in the recent voting? If we do, please visit our article More Irregularities in the Voting? The RCS Central School District was served with papers on May 29th demaning an investigation; we’re waiting to see where the NYSED is going to go with all of this!

Time to Start Writing–Right NOW!

So, now that you have some facts to fill in any blanks, don’t you think it’s time to start using the Complaints Contact Sheet we provided (you can view or download the sheef from the blog article, Retaliation Is A CRIME! Let’s Go After the Criminals!)? Start sending letters, e-mails, complaint forms, demands to everyone and anyone on or off the list! Get those criminal bastids out of government, investicated, in jail where they belong. They’re crooks and criminals and shouldn’t be in your back yard. (Don’t bother calling the local Coeymans police, though, they’re the criminals!)

It’s time to do YOUR part in cleaning up RCS!

Retaliation is a Crime: Part II

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

If you haven’t read Part I, Please go to Part I.

Retaliation Is A Crime! You Need to Run the Criminals Out of the Community! Only Then Will You Be Able To Walk the Streets, Drive Your Car, Speak Your Mind, Send Your Children to School with Peace of Mind! Get Rid of Retaliation in Coeymans and Live Your Lives In Peace! Learn What Retaliation Is and Complain!

Fight Back…NOW!

When you think “retaliation” you must think of it in terms of how the law defines it. If you don’t use that standard definition, anyone you speak to or complain to won’t know whether you are talking about what the law protects you against. That’s the way it works. If you use the right terms and understand what they mean, you gain credibility; if you don’t, well, the criminals will rule.

So, when you talk or write about, or when you file a claim against a public official or department about retaliation, here is a good definition to work by:

 A definition: Retaliation is defined and prohibited by a number of laws and is illegal, it is a crime. We are provinding a good working best definitions of retaliations as itis expressed in most lawas against retaliation and coercion:

(a) No private or public entity shall discriminate against any individual because that individual has opposed any act or practice made unlawful by the Constitution of the United States, state or federal law, local law or custom , or because that individual made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, state or federal law, local law or custom or any part thereof.

(b) No private or public entity shall coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights,, state or federal law, local law or custom.

(c) Illustrations of conduct prohibited by the laws against retaliation or coersion include, but are not limited to:

(1) Coercing an individual to deny or limit the benefits, services, or advantages to which he or she is entitled as a resident or citizen;
(2) Threatening, intimidating, or interfering with an individual who is seeking to obtain or use the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of a public accommodation;
(3) Intimidating or threatening any person because that person is assisting or encouraging an individual or group entitled to claim the rights granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, federal or local laws, custom to exercise those rights; or
(4) Retaliating against any person because that person has participated in any investigation or action to enforce civil or constitutional, natural  or human rights.

The dictionary definition of retaliation is misleading: “retaliation, n. -Syn. vengeance, reprisal, punishment; see revenge,” and that’s why it’s so important for you to use the legal definitions of retaliation and to provide details and facts that show that the misconduct is a violation of the legal definition of retaliation or coercion.

Retaliation happens against students by teachers, against parents through their children, government through police or other agencies against citizens, landlords against tenants, employers against employee. Because people live in fear of retaliation and ignorance of the law protecting them, no one really knows how widespread retaliation and coercion is in communities, or how often it occurs; but the people experiencing it know it exists and how it affects them. You, reader, may be one of them so pay attention. You don’t have to put up with it anymore!

 Yet, wherever parents or citizens gather and whenever they talk among themselves, the topic of retaliation receives lively attention.

Anyone who advocates for children  or for justice and fairness in the community or for freedom of speech or freedom of association as guaranteed under the United States Constitution can become the target of retaliation. (Individuals across the country are winning million-dollar lawsuits against schools, teachers, government, police for illegal retaliation and coercion.)

Retaliation or coercion is the act of using official power or authority or resources to illegally “punish” residents. The causes of retaliation are no mystery and there are two key ingredients: power and accountability – too much power and not enough accountabilty.

The mechanism that seems to trigger retaliation is effective advocacy. Retaliation occurs in an environment where officials view any opinions differing from their own or any questioning of their power as an unwanted imposition or as a way to develop an alternative power base or community action. When school officials or public servants translate their responsibilities and duties to citizens, residents, children and families into unquestioned, absolute decision making power over them. The profile of such officials can take two forms: openly hostile or smoothly deceptive, the latter preferring passive aggressive resistance.

Hostile officials on the other hand use their position as an instrument of power to openly intimidate and even punish citizens, students, parents, even groups. (Without what is called due process, this is a violation of the provisions of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights!)

Most people never encounter retaliation because they are “sheeple,” people who unquestioningly and stupidly accept anything they get fed. Those who do experience retaliation and coercion however, are usually strong advocates for citizens’ rights, the betterment of the community (advocates for cleaning up politics, change), special disadvantaged or marginalized people without power such as the poor, the elderly, children. Regardless, retaliation does occur and the fear of retaliation inhibits many citizens. This gives school and government officials and the police wide latitude to become dictators, tyrants, to do what they damned well please.

Patterns of retaliation can be classified into three levels. Level I, the most frequent, is low-level passive activity, with the goal of delaying the process. Level II is more overt; the goal is to scare parents. Level III is the form of open hostility and the goal is to punish you. Level III retaliation is rare, but costly, dramatic, and damaging. After you read the descriptions below, you’ll probably have no doubts that you have been the victim of retaliation and coercion!

Level I – Delay. The goal at this level of retaliation is to reduce your effectiveness as citizens, residents, or as parents effectiveness by passive resistance, such as the introduction of delays and obstacles in the many processes involved in responding to problems or to complaints. There are numerous ways officials can achieve this result. One is simply playing dumb. This allows officials to effectively ignore the law and your rights under the law. Another is “forgetting” to do things. An official may repeatedly forget to follow-up on a commitment, such as getting back to parents with further information, or fail to schedule further meetings without several reminders. Being “away from the phone,” so often that parents give up on some important issue is also effective. Yet another technique is overly technical interpretations of laws and regulations. Level I does not appear hostile, but it can be extremely effective.

 Level II – Fear. Level II retaliation is not hidden. At this stage officials may appear to be openly frustrated and hostile. They will state that they won’t for example, allow you to have records or observe a process, or a class, or won’t permit certain kinds of activities. The list of “can’t do’s” is quite long. Most of it however, is bluff.

Level II retaliation is based on putting up a tough front in an effort to scare citizens or parents and reduce their advocacy. It is is all based on their expectation that you are ignorant of your rights and of the law. While it can be very effective, you can break through this barrier by learning more about the laws and regulations and simply insisting on compliance. Once past the obstacles, you will usually find that resistance is eliminated, because you will probably know more than they do (this is especially true when faced with ignorant village and town justices!).

Level III – Punishment. At this level, retaliation can get ugly, with officials or police openly threatening and actively trying to punish you. In this war-like situation, officials and police have a variety of weapons to choose from. One is the fair hearing (due process hearing) process. Government, and schools, too, (because YOU give them the money by accepting their budget!) have vast financial resources to transform hearings into major trial-like proceedings. Since there is no accountability to taxpayers for the large sums spent in such legal adventures, officials have free rein to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (HamiltonCounty TN v. Zachary Deal is a case, where the school district spent at least 2.8 million dollars on attorneys’ fees to fight parents of a child with autism), and you have no say in it! You gave them a budget!

Aiding and abetting this practice is a network of attorneys who specialize in fighting citizens and parents. These attorneys are organized into a professional group which holds national conferences and training programs at the local level. School and government officials are invited to attend these conferences where they are tutored in the finer points of “aggressive action,” in the form of strategies to be used before a due process meeting or at the pre-hearing conference of a due process or fair hearing. There have been recent reports of a menacing new form of retaliation involving the fabrication of child abuse charges against the target parent. Such allegations can trigger an investigation by Child Protective Services which has police-like powers. Pending the outcome of their investigation, they may choose to remove children from the home. Level III is so serious that most people need an attorney to protect themselves.

Therefore, it’s extremely important to nip retaliation and coercion in the bud; to tell government, police, and schools they have their power and authority because YOU allow it…YOU give it to them and YOU can take it back.

But as you can see in the patterns of retaliation and coercion, the longer you let it go, the more difficult it is to get rid of. It’s like any disease: you neglect it and it’s going to kill you!

 Only YOU can put a stop to retaliation in the community. The Coeymans Police Department, certain members of the RCS CSD Board of Education, certain members of the RCS teachers association, and the village idiots that they recruit to do their dirty work are all agents of retaliation and coercion. Those people are interested in hanging on to their criminal power and will retaliate and coerce to keep that power. You know who they are and it’s time you stand up, speak up, and fight back. We’re providing you with the information and the tools to do just that! Fight Back! Take back your freedoms, your peace of mind, your lives!

Stop Being Pushed Around!

Here are some useful links:

And Remember….

A strong community represents the residents in the trenches and not the interests of the people in power”.

An administration that allows its members to be disrespected, is an administration that no longer deserves the respect of its residents.

When our educational leaders ignore input from the community, the programs they push are destined to fail.
