Complaints, Lawsuits, Fear of the Coeymanazi Coeymans Police Department…Overspending, Wild Spending Habits, A Major Chunk of the Town Budget–Now the Coeymans Police Department “Promotes” Albany CountySheriff’s Department Employee and Part-Time Coeymans Cop Kerry Thompson to Lieutenant and the Coeymans Town Board Approves Thompson’s Hourly Rate at More Than $30/Hour!
According to our recent poll 64% of persons responded would like to see the Coeymans police department eliminated; 59% of persons responding said they would support a referendum to eliminate the Coeymans police department. 46% said that they were concerned by the coziness between the Albany County and the Coeymans police department. 38% of responders reported that their rights were violated by either the Coeymans police department or a Coeymans police officer, and were unsatisfied with the reponse of the Coeymans police department.
These are pretty damning figures from a fairly well-educated, intelligent group of people who read this blog, and take the time to participate in our polls. Such a large percentage wo want to see the Coeymans police department eliminated and who would support a referendum to eliminate it is a good reason to continue reviewing the department and whether it is justified. A very concerning rate of persons responding to the poll report that they feel their rights were violated by the Coeymans police department or by a Coeymans police officer.
So, this raises a very appropriate question after the July 23, 2012, Coeymans town board meeting at which Flach, Dolan, Boehme, and Masti unanimously approved Albany County Sheriff department employee and part-time Coeymans police officer Kerry Thompson to be a less-than-full-time lieutenant in the Coeymans police department at an hourly rate of more than $30.00/hour! More than $30.00 an hour for what the Coeymans town board described as largely “administrative.”
Is this town absolutely nutz?
Has the town board completely lost it’s mind or are they 100% owned by the Coeymanazis, Dolan, and Albany County! Are you, dear readers, citizens, and residents going to believe that Gregory Darlington, with his more than $91,000 annual salary and the some 18 other full- and part-time employees, including one Coeymans police officer, Contento (“contento” is Italian for “happy”, “pleased with yourself” Wouldn’t you be?), who pulled more than $84,000 in salary in 2011, are so overworked that they need to put a lieutenant on the staff (he’s already there but they’re pulling a fast one to “promote” him) for more than $30/hour. How many Coeymans residents are making that kind of money on one or two jobs?
And an administrative position, to add salt to our wounds?!?! What kind of favor, reward is this, now? A very special Thank You! to Kerr Thompson for his fine service to this community as a part-timer? Or is it because he’s married to chief Gregory Darlingtons’s sister? Did you miss that little tidbit when we published it some time ago?
When is this insane spending and rewarding, this favoritism at taxpayer expense going to finally stop???
This is an absolute disgrace considering the general attitude of the community regarding the Coeymans police, their antics, and their spending habits! And Cathy Deluca, wife of Coeymans police department employee, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is sending residents out collecting empty cans and bottles to send school children on field trips because, ‘There’s no money in the school budget for that.” Does anyone smell something funny going on around here?
Was the recent award of more than $18,000 from Albany County DA David Soares a prelude to this ridiculous action taken by the Coeymans town board? Are any of you aware that Thompson works full-time for the Albany County Sheriff’s Department; How does he expect to do two jobs at the same time? (This multiple job syndrome appears to be a unique situation in the RCS community: Matt Miller had three jobs at the same time: teacher, teachers union president/union rep, and energy manager, until his little criminal career was ended by the RCS board of education. Look at Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s multiple jobs! Deluca claims to have at least 5 jobs, and still manages to collect a salary from the Coeymans police department as a police investigator with no qualifications! And now we have Kerry Thompson who is going to come on to do “administrative work” (Wait a minute! Isn’t that Darlington’s job? He’s getting $91,000 to do it!) and Coeymans is going to be paying him $30/hour (between $30-45,000 a year, part-time! That’s more than most RCS residents take home, my friends!)) This town is apparently rolling is spare change and nobody knows it! Keep collecting those bottles and cans!
We can see Thomas E. Dolan screwing the community like that–he’s in it with Darlington and his gang of Coeymanazis— but it’s beyond us that Peter Masti went along with the gift-giving frenzy, even that Stephen Flach went along with it. Scandalous! Disgraceful!
Our Advice: The Coeymans Police Department Needs a State Audit VERY VERY Badly!
The Comptroller or the NYS Office of the Attorney General Needs to Take a Good Long Look at the Town of Coeymans Finances and especially the Financial (Mis)Management and Accounting Abuses/Practices of the Coeymans Police Department, Including its Staffing Practices!
Will someone please WAKE UP!!! That’s YOUR $$$ They’re Burning!!!
