Open Letter to County Legislator Patrick Linger and Greene County DA Joseph Stanzione

Funding for Justice

We’re big enough now to start making a real serious difference in how things are done around here. So far, we’ve just been providing information and facts. Maybe it’s time to start rocking some boats through the courts. Just think of it this way: If we were to ask only 50% of our readers to donate only $1 to a Justice Fund, we’d have enough to send a good number of our elected officials and public servants to the new jail they want to build. (We say only 50% of our readers because the other 50% are readers who say they don’t read this blog but practically live on it. That 50% are the state, county, and town parasites who go on this blog to see if they’ve been mentioned today. We seriously doubt that they’d be willing to contribute to their own prosecution fund. Even if we sent just two or three to jail and a couple were to lose their pension rights, that would send a message to the others that they might be next. Send a couple of public employees to jail, have a couple of judges disbarred, take away a couple of attorney’s license to practice their corrupt law. What do you think, readers, voters, citizens? Does that sound like a plan?)


It’s an election year and in the New Baltimore Town Hall they’re still in “lawyer mode,” according to New Baltimore Sole Assessor, Gordon Bennett.

It’s and election year and County Legislator for New Baltimore, Patrick “Pat” Linger, running on the Republican ticket, is seeking re-election. Joseph “Joe” Stanzione is also seeking re-election to the Greene County District Attorney Office.

Linger’s and Stanzione’s Republican “friends” in New Baltimore Town Hall haven’t done them any favors! In fact, the way New Baltimore Town Hall has conducted the business of government is likely to have hurt Linger, Stanzione and others very badly, and may even cost them the election. We’ll be doing our best to see to that.

These two politicians seeking re-election have two things in common:

  • They have dropped the ball when it comes to ensuring good government and compliance with the law.
  • They have managed to slip under the radar during their past terms in office, to avoid detection of their incompetence.

We haven’t missed the fact that while the New Baltimore Highway Department was squandering taxpayer dollars, Pat Linger and George Amedore were handing him fistfuls of taxpayer money in CHIPS grants and other state and federal support for highway infrastructure. The New Baltimore Highway Department under Denis Jordan and now under Scott van Wormer, had no training or education to qualify them for planning or designing or even for repairing roads and highway infrastructure. The money was squandered, wasted, and Linger and Amedore just were oblivious, never checking or monitoring how the money was being used. The Greene County DA, Joe Stanzione, was aware of what was going on; WE REPORTED IT TO HIM!!! Nick Dellisanti and Jeff Ruso were also aware of what was going on but couldn’t control Jordan!!! Puppet Dellisanti, we recall, defended his choices of appointees by saying, “Republicans appoint Republicans,” and we see where that got New Baltimore! Residents and taxpayers got screwed!!!

Thanks Linger, St anzione, Dellisanti, Ruso, Jordan, van Wormer!!!
You sure know how to kindle a cozy fire for yourselves…using our money!!!

We think that a local resident has hit the nail on the head when he writes in an

Open Letter to
Patrick “Pat” Linger, Greene County Legislator for the Town of New Baltimore
and
Joseph “Joe” Stanzione, Greene County District Attorney

Here’s what the resident has to say:
(Reprinted in its entirety; we have added the graphics.)

Dear Mr. Linger:
Dear Mr. Stanzione:

You have failed us miserably. You have betrayed the trust we invested in you when we stood behind you and elected you to public office. You have violated your oaths of office. You have shown yourselves to be unfit for public office.

I am writing to you regarding a state of affairs in the Town of New Baltimore, County of Greene, which has been ignored by the incumbent Republican Town Supervisors over three terms: Nick Dellisanti during his two terms in office, and Jeff Ruso, the current Town Supervisor.

We cite here as well the state of affairs that has been going on for almost two decades in the New Baltimore Highway Department under former Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan, and which is continuing under the acting Highway Superintendent Scott vanWormer, and will likely continue under the next Highway Superintendent Alan vanWormer, Scott vanWormer’s brother, who is running for that office unopposed and who will be “declared elected,” under New York State ElectionLaw.

Residents and voters, at least those of us who have not been so discouraged by the state of affairs in New Baltimore, and who still go to the polls – for all the good it does and what little difference it makes. New Baltimore voters have for several years now been deprived of their right to choose their elected officials because the Greene County and New Baltimore political party committees are unable to run candidates, and we voters are being force-fed candidates running unopposed; we are being denied our vote. We do not have “elections” in New Baltimore; we may go to the polls but we have a choice of ONE. That’s not democracy.

Business as usual in Greene County and New Baltimore.

Former Town Supervisor Nick Dellisanti chose not to run for office in 2017; instead, his deputy Jeff Ruso (R) ran unopposed and was “declared elected” though not elected, in fact more than a third of those going to the polls abstained from casting a vote for Ruso. But Ruso’s first order of business when assuming office in January 2018 was to appoint Nick Dellisanti as his Deputy Supervisor. Although the fact that Dellisanti accepted the appointment doesn’t make a lot of sense, the bottom line is that we in New Baltimore have two executives, the Supervisor and his Deputy Supervisor, neither of which have been democratically elected.

But what’s worse, is that in Town Hall we have a gaggle of clowns who have no idea why they are there, and are blinded by their political ambitions and have forgotten or never knew what public service is; they are not public servants, they are interested only in cronyism and their simple-minded notions of power.

Here’s an example out of real life in New Baltimore, and an example of how Mr. Dellisanti, Mr. Ruso and their respective Town Boards, appointees, and hirelings have misused taxpayers, and abused their pubic offices.

You, Mr. Linger, and you, Mr. Stanzione, have been personally informed of these situations by those affected but have done NOTHING. It’s an election year, Mr. Linger and Mr. Stanzione, so don’t you think it’s time you grunted or got off the pot? It’s an election year, Mr. Linger and Mr. Stanzione, so don’t you think you should come up with some answers and some actions? You’ve done nothing so far so now might be a great time to show some good faith, even if it is self-serving in an election year.

First of all, for almost two decades, the former New Baltimore Highway Superintendent, Mr. Denis Jordan, was given carte blanche to do what he pleased in the Town of New Baltimore, squandering countless hundreds of thousands, very likely millions of taxpayer dollars doing more damage than improvement. Why? Because he was allowed to do that by past Town administrations, both Democrat and Republican, and because he was not monitored, despite the fact he had no training or education, and was about as qualified as a cabbage to do the job. His recent resignation and the so-called investigations are in reality a smoke and mirrors game. The investigations it seems are nothing more than a pornographic dog and pony act, making fools of voters, taxpayers, and those adversely affected by Jordan’s incompetence and indifference.

Why haven’t we heard anything more about the so-called investigations? What was the outcome? You investigated a public entity and a public figure but the public has been kept in the dark. Is that your idea of good government? It appears to us that it is.

We don’t hear anything from our elected officials in Town Hall about these investigations. In fact, according to local media, New Baltimore Town Officials claimed not to be aware of any “investigations,” or not to have been informed of them. I find that very hard to believe, especially given the fact that the subject of the investigations was a New Baltimore Department head and an elected official, Mr. Denis Jordan, and the New Baltimore Town Clerk’s office was floor-to-ceiling with banker’s boxes all labeled “Highway Department,” during the investigations. But Supervisor Ruso and members of the Town Board were unaware of the investigations. Were you, Mr. Linger, or you, Mr. Stanzione, aware of the investigations? If so, why weren’t New Baltimore residents and taxpayers informed?

The incompetence and negligence of the New Baltimore Town Board under Dellisanti and Ruso, and their indifference and negligence of the damage that Denis Jordan was doing can’t be made up. It’s real, it’s ongoing, and it’s going to haunt them and you for some considerable time to come. Why? Because it’s scandalous!

In 2016, both Dellisanti and Ruso, along with sitting Town Board member Shelly van Etten, made personal inspections of the results of lack of maintenance of New Street in New Baltimore, and the damage to private property as the result of that lack of maintenance of the roadway owned by the Town of New Baltimore and for which the Town of New Baltimore and its Highway Department were legally liable for repair and maintenance. [Editor’s Note: After two years, neither Dellisanti nor Ruso, nor the Highway Department have responded with any proposal to fix the damage they caused.]

Dellisanti and Ruso, and two days later, Mr. Denis Jordan and his Deputy Mr. Scott van Wormer, again visited New Street, and for a second time Dellisanti and Ruso were apprised of the situation and the damage being done.

Dellisanti, Ruso, and Jordan managed to ignore the ongoing damage, Jordan creating new hazards and damage every time he managed to make an appearance.

Notices of Claim were served in which the Town was apprised in detail of the damage, and the associated liabilities. Dellisanti and Ruso did nothing to cure the damage or to take any responsibility; they simply handed the Notices over to their insurance company, who then handed the Notices to their attorneys.

Why is it that bad government seems to think they can avoid liability and responsibility if they hand their incompetence over to a law firm? Town law provides for remedies but the Town of New Baltimore has, and continues to avoid their responsibilities and forces taxpayers and residents into the poor house because the only possibility is court, lawsuits. But the insurance companies have much deeper pockets than residents. Why should a resident have to fight to get local government to accept responsibility for what they have done? Why should it cost local residents, hard-working honest people, tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to force elected officials to do what’s right and to comply with the law.

That’s a good question for you, Mr. Stanzione. You’re the chief law enforcement official in the County of Greene, what’s your position on New Baltimore’s liabilities and failure to comply with the law?

Well, the Town of New Baltimore, and you, Mr. Linger, and you, Mr. Stanzione, have been kept updated on the ongoing damage to a private residential structure in the Hamlet of New Baltimore, which you all KNOW has sustained damage due to the failure of the Town to maintain drainage and roadways as required by the law. The structure has been subject to ongoing damage thanks to incompetent roadwork. The Town has been provided with images, videos, and ongoing updates but the Town has so far ignored everything, and has done nothing.

The Highway Department installed a deep so-called “catchment” that’s almost 2 feet deep and 30 inches across, a booby-trap, but when asked to put in a proper grate, they’ve ignored the request for nearly two years. When asked at least to mark the catchment to avoid and accident, they ignored that request, too! Don’t drive down New Street, New Baltimore at night, you’re risking your life. But you, Mr. Linger, you, Mr. Stanzione, you Mr. Dellisanti, and you Mr. Ruso, all know about this. But you have done NOTHING about it. And now Linger and Stanzione, you’re asking New Baltimore for their votes?!?

In fact, Mr. Linger, we’ve read that you were asked to share your accomplishments with a local reporting medium but you refused to respond. Does that mean you have no accomplishments or that you feel you don’t owe the voting public that information or even a response? Which is it Mr. Linger?

Well, the tax bills come out though, with clockwork regularity. A building’s collapsing because of Town negligence but the building inspector/code enforcement officer and the assessor refuse to inspect the building. The owner pays his taxes on a building that he can’t use.

When asked to inspect the site and to adjust the assessment, the New Baltimore Sole Assessor, Gordon Bennett, refuses and tells the owner to take it up on Grievance Day.

The owner presents the case on Grievance day to the Board of Assessment Review, a group of appointees, appointed by the Town Supervisor and approved by the Town Board. Again, facts, just the facts, images, answers were presented to the BAR, who granted 9 out of 11 requests for reduction of assessments but denied the requests made by the New Street property owner. This blog reported on that scandal.

The next step was to go before a hearing officer in a Small Claims Assessment Review proceeding (S.C.A.R.) and ask that an independent hearing officer reconsider the BAR’s determination. This was done and Sole Assessor Bennett appeared to defend his assessment, but claimed that the property was not owner-occupied, and therefore, the owner was not eligible to be heard. But the property was and is “owner-occupied” as defined by the law but the more-than-eighty year old hearing officer stopped listening early in the hearing and, despite volumes of proof, sided with Bennett, although allowing a $1,000 reduction in another affected property.

Does something sound fishy here? Well, it gets even better, because New Baltimore’s Bennett responded to the hearing officer’s question, “Why hasn’t New Baltimore condemned the structure?” Bennett replied that New Baltimore Town Hall was in “lawyer mode,” meaning that they would not respond because of liability. [Editor’s emphasis]

If that wasn’t enough, Bennett shot himself and the Town of New Baltimore in the foot a second time when he stated, and I quote from the hearing officer’s official determination:

But first, a quote from the hearing officer:

“Petitioner representative under oath states that the house is used for storage and that it is uninhabitable and unsafe to use as a residence because of structural failures and water damage. Photographs were presented to support the contention that it was uninhabitable.”  [Editor’s emphasis]

And then the hearing officer states and certifies that:

“The Assessor [Bennett] concurred that the property was uninhabitable because of structural failures. Assessor then moved to disqualify the petition on the ground that the property was not owner-occupied.” [Editor’s emphasis. “Not owner-occupied”? Is Bennett crazy or just stupid? Maybe both! He just admitted that the property was “uninhabitable because of structural failures.”]

Well, if I am reading that correctly, the hearing officer was provided with enough evidence and proof to clearly show that the property is “uninhabitable and unsafe,” and Bennett agreed that “the property was uninhabitable because of structural failures,” I am at a loss Why?  Mr. Bennett and the Town of New Baltimore have not acted in good faith and at least reduced the assessment of the property.

I am also aware that the owner/owner’s representative  has addressed numerous letters and emails to the Town Supervisor, the Town Board, the Office of the Assessor, the Building Inspector, the Highway Department asking what they are going to do, what they propose should be done. The owner/owner’s representative hasn’t received a single response from any of those offices!

Sole Assessor Gordon Bennett explained the reason for this is that Town Hall is in “lawyer mode.”  [Editor’s emphasis]

“Lawyer mode.” I wonder if you, Mr. Linger, or perhaps you, Mr. Stanzione, can explain what exactly “lawyer mode” is and whether there is a provision of Town Law that permits elected, appointed officials and public employees to ignore their responsibilities and claim “lawyer mode?” Is that something like pleading the Fifth? I’d be very grateful if you could get back to me on that one. Yeah! Fat chance? Well, if hell doesn’t freeze over in the meantime, there‎’ll be a very special place there for you, Mr. Linger and you, Mr. Stanzione, as well as Mr. Jordan, Dellisanti, Ruso, and Bennett.

Shame on you all!!! You are hypocrites all!

Even if Mr. Ruso, Mr. Dellisanti, Mr. Bennet, Mr. van Wormer and the others in that den of thieves don’t have any dignity, one would hope that one of you, Mr. Linger or Mr. Stanzione, would have the decency to call New Baltimore to explain, to justify their scandalous treatment of honest taxpayers, or at least to investigate their abuses. Or is that too much to expect, to hope for?

The hypocrisy includes their treatment of veterans. I am a veteran. The property owner of the damaged property is a veteran. I know of others who have suffered at the hands of Mr. Jordan and other public officials in New Baltimore, and those residents are veterans.

I am personally disgusted and affronted by the fact that so many of our county and town officials claim to support and to honor veterans but stab them in the back when push comes to shove. Mealy-mouthed, pabulum-puking hypocrisy is what it really is. Veterans luncheons, monuments, the whole embarrassing hypocritical dog and pony display makes me physically sick.

What’s worse is when you see who’s at those events, it’s a bunch of deluded old men thinking that they are being honored – sometimes they’re even outnumbered by the politicians who all seem to crawl out of the woodwork in time for a photo op, and then exchange a few empty words before making some sort of excuse that they have to be somewhere else.

In recap, we in the town of New Baltimore, the Little North Korea, Greene County, New York, USA, the Third World of the East Coast, are sick and tired of the propaganda and election campaign rhetoric, and the abuse we receive from elected officials who, in reality, are not elected. We are sick of being ignored and subjected to retaliatory or “special” treatment by incompetent public servants, who have their own agendas once they steal our votes. We are sick and tired of public servants and elected officials who breach and violate the contract between the taxpayer and government, the contract that basically says that we’ll elect you, you’ll collect tax paid salaries and pensions, but you have to conduct our business in good faith and fair play.

You have not done that. You have violated our trust. You have violated your oaths of office. You have cheated us. We now demand justice and your heads!

I demand, and I think I can speak not only for the abused property owner on New Street, but the abused residents throughout New Baltimore, for the abused citizens, residents, tax payers and voters who have been cheated and misled by people like you, Mr. Linger, Mr. Stanzione, Mr. Dellisanti, Mr. Ruso, Mr. Bennett, Mr. Jordan, Mr. vanWormer and so many parasites like you, that you make amends for your evil, your piracy, your treasons, your misconduct, your incompetence, your shameful abuse of the trust we gave you on election day.

Fix what you have allowed to happen and make those whose suffering and losses you have caused whole again.

And for those of you who were not elected, who were “declared elected,” but not by voters, you are the worst of the bunch because you have not been approved democratically to lead or to govern.

Shame on you! Shame on you all! And shame on New Baltimore for allowing this to happen at all!

Disgusted,

A Concerned Resident

The Smalbany blog has already published numerous articles on the issues presented in the resident’s letter. They are all true and factual. Supervisor Ruso, Deputy (former supervisor) Dellisanti, Sole Assessor Gordon Bennett, the New Baltimore Highway Department under Denis Jordan and Scott vanWormer,the New Baltimore Town Board are all a disgrace to any concept of decency, much less good competent government.

Veterans?!? The writer mentions an important point that we may have overlooked in the past but now have focused on: veterans and how they’re treated. And Yes! we have noticed the so-called Veterans Luncheon and the Veterans Monument at Town Hall. New Baltimore has a Veterans Committee, too. You have to wonder if that so-called committee works as well as the other New Baltimore “committees,” it’s a wonder we have any living veterans in New Baltimore. Our opinion as veterans: Keep your casseroles and mealy-mouthed speeches and give us the justice we put our lives on the line for!!!  And all you cowardly parasites who never wore a uniform in your lives, don’t give us your bullshit about how you love your veterans!!! Put your policies where you’re foul-smelling mouths are!!

By the way, Mr Linger, Mr Stanzione: Were either of you in the military? We mean other than the boy scouts, girl scouts, or National  Guard or Reserves? How about you, Mr Ruso, Mr Dellisanti: Were you ever in uniform? We mean other than Albany Girls Academy, that is.

Yes, it’s an election year and this is the time to make your voices heard, that is, if you haven’t been deprived of a voice through your vote. It’s uncanny that so many people will put up with having their rights taken away without uttering even a whimper. How can real Americans tolerate “unopposed candidates” or “uncontested elections” without screaming at the top of their voices: NO WAY!

Either do the job or get out of Town Hall! Do the job or get out of County government!

And we’d like to know more about this “lawyer mode” thing Mr Bennett has revealed; is this a new fad in Town and Village government? And what’s the deal with the Town’s refusal to respond to letters and correspondence? Too cowardly to take a position on the questions asked about how you operate the Town? Are the questions about taking responsibility and complying with the law over your heads? Yeah. We can see why you’d try to hide. Confused are you? Look, either do the job or get out of Town Hall! Do the job or get out of County government! And what about the Town of New Baltimore Town Board’s responsibilities in terms of public safety and good stewardship of public resources? Have we turned a blind eye to that, too?

You! Yeah, YOU!
Your ass is grass, dude, and our foot’s a lawnmower!

Mr Ruso, Mr Dellisanti, Mr Bennett, Mr Jordan, Mr vanWormer, Mr Linger, Mr Stanzione, and others can run but they won’t be able to hide.

Letters will be going out soon the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (and the Office of Real Property Services), the Office of the New York State Comptroller, and the Office of the New York State Attorney General, demanding investigations or at least inquiry into what’s going on in New Baltimore (and Ravena/Coeymans, too). We’re going to ask Why? Mr Patrick Linger and Mr Joseph Stanzione have dropped the ball on so many issues, Why? they’re asleep on duty. We’ll also drop Mr Cuomo cc’s of the letters to see what he has to say about his Repukelican friends in Greene County.

We will allege conspiracy to obstruct justice, to deprive citizens of their civil and protected rights, election fraud, violation of oaths of office, unlawful deprivation of rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the New York State and United States Constitution (3rd, 5th and 14th Amendments), violation of due process rights, breach of contract, among other violations and crimes, tortious negligence, unlawful eviction (constructive eviction), discriminatory practices. The list could go on but rest assured, the evidence and the proof for these allegations and others is clear, conspicuous, and incontestable. Mr Ruso, Mr Dellisanti, Mr Bennett, Mr Jordan, Mr vanWormer, Mr Linger, Mr Stanzione can run but they won’t be able to hide.

How is it possible that New Baltimore, Greene County has such a bunch of irresponsible, despicable morons running the show. How can they get away with destroying private property, avoiding any notions of fair play and good faith, and still sleep at night. Well, when you have no conscience, you can do anything and still get a good night’s sleep. new Baltimore Town hall, Mr Patrick Linger, Mr Joseph Stanzione, Mr Jeff Ruso, Mr Nick Dellisanti, Denis Jordan and Scot vanWormer are living proof of that!

New Baltimore & Greene County Elections.
What we have to choose from..

Ravena Loitering Law is Unconstitutional: Violates First, Fourth, Fourteenth Amendments!

Our Advice: Drive a Crook Crazeee Wear a Wire. Get yourself a small digital voice recorder and keep it handy. Protect yourself when you talk to the Ravenazis or the Coeymanazis, when you enter their dens, when they approach you. New York State is a “one-party state” which means that if you are a party to a conversation you can tape the conversation without having to tell anyone. They’re crazy-paranoid now that they know we know they can be taped. If they behave themselves—which is highly unlikely—they have nothing to fear; if they don’t behave—which is very likely—you’ve got evidence and they have a problem. Ask mayor John Bruno and Cathy Deluca…they know!

Ravena Law Is Unconstitutional: Violates Citizens’ Protected Constitutional Rights

Absolutely Stupid!!! And Unconstitutional

Absolutely Stupid!!!
And Unconstitutional

Village of Ravena Posts a “No Loitering” Sign on Main Street Gazebo.

Part Two: Ravena’s Laws Are Unconstitutional—No Loitering? How the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, and a Jerky-Boy District Attorney, P. David Soares cooperate to violate your rights! It’s all in violation of the United States Constitution and your rights!

The elected members of the Ravena, New York, village board have again demonstrated their profound ignorance of basic constitutional rights that every person in the United States of America is guaranteed. Ignorant elected officials make vague and illegal laws that invite discriminatory and retaliatory enfocement by a biased police department.

First of all, it’s absolutely ridiculous to put up a gazebo in a highly visible place right in the middle of the village and then to post a warning sign that prohibits its use! Think of it this way: By definition a gazebo is “a roofed structure that offers an open view of the surrounding area, typically used for relaxation or entertainment” and is usually situated in a spot that provides a pleasant view while offering shelter from the sun. shelter from the elements, a place to meet, or simply a place to relax. So why would the village of Ravena erect a gazebo and then post a warning tantamount to forbidding its use based on a local nonsense law?

In Article II “Rules of Conduct” [Adopted on May 28, 1934 by Ord. No. 1 [footnote omitted]] includes § 83 – 10. Riotous assembly, § Obscene language or conduct, and especially § 83 – 13 Unnecessary congregation, the village law that is referenced in the sign placed on the Main Street gazebo.  § 83 – 13 reads in its entirety:

vor no loitering sign detail

§ 83 – 13. Unnecessary congregation???

§ 83 – 13. Unnecessary congregation.

No persons shall unnecessarily congregate upon the sidewalks or streets or street corners in the vicinity of any church or other public place. [footnote omitted]

So what would the person of average intelligence make of this idiotic verbage? The words “unnecessarily” immediately caught my attention. Isn’t “unnecessarily” subject to a really broad and vague interpretation? “Congregate” is another troublesome word in this constitutionally unenforceable law. What does congregate mean, anyway, as used in the law. And if you can’t “congregate” on sidewalks or streets or street corners, that leaves very few other places to “congregate.” Well, that leaves alleyways, abandoned buildings, parks, vacant lots, any other public area that is not a “sidewalk,” “street,” or “street corner.” In fact, where you can congregate is just about anywhere mischief can be done ‘safely.’ And according to this Ravena law you’d better watch out for the Coeymans cops after church when you “congregate” “unnecessarily” on the street in front of the church or in the church parking lot. According to the Ravena law, you will be loitering and subject to a ticket (depending on who you are, of course; law enforcement in Ravena-Coeymans is highly biased).

 “A person is guilty of loitering when he/she…loiters.”

Even the New York Penal Law § 240.35 Loitering, despite its redundant phrasing “A person is guilty of loitering when he…loiters.” Brilliant language skills of the New York State legislators. Makes sense, doesn’t it? But in a law that kind of language can cause problems on an appeal or constitutional challenge, as we’ll see below.

Nevertheless, the New York loitering law is somewhat specific but not immune from challenge in that it notifies the citizen that he or she is guilty of loitering if he or she “wanders about in a public place for the purpose of begging…or gambling…or sexual conduct…or sexual behavior of a deviant nature;” or if a person is in a place and “masked…or disguised…or in unusual or unnatural attire.” The NY law also defines loitering as when a person is on “or remains in or about school grounds…with no legitimate reason for being there,” or is present a transportation facility “for the purpose of soliciting or sale of merchandise or services…or for the purpose of entertaining,” or is “in a transportation facility…and is unable to give a satisfactory explanation of his presence.” Loitering is a violation.

Reading this law anyone of average intelligence will be able to understand the behavior that might earn him or her a ticket in New York state but anyone of average intelligence will also recognize that the terms of the law are so vague and ambiguous that the can cause any prosecutor really big problems when confronted with a smart defendant or defense attorney…most likely the prosecutor will opt not to prosecute –  – as is often the case –  – and just drop the charge or make a deal.

But back to the Ravena so – called “loitering” law. The Ravena law is conspicuously unconstitutional for the reasons we discuss below and the United States Supreme Court agrees. Here’s why (without going into the details of the individual cases, which we have studied for this article):

Your Rights Ignored Criminals: Bruno, Warner, Bailey, Case, Persico, Darlington!

Your Rights Ignored
Criminals: Bruno, Warner, Bailey, Case, Persico, Darlington!

The Supreme Court has held that such ordinances violate the First Amendment of the United States Constitution because they offend the protected rights and freedoms of association, assembly, and expression. The Court has also held that such ordinances are unconstitutionally vague in violation of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because they arbitrarily restrict personal liberties.  Such ordinances as the Ravena law are unconstitutionally vague because the law fails “to establish standards for the police and public that are sufficient to guard against the arbitrary deprivation of liberty interests” by biased police officers. The Court also found that such ordinances are unconstitutional because they violate the Fourth Amendment by allowing a law enforcement officer to arrest a citizen suspect without probable cause. The Supreme Court held that “the freedom to loiter for innocent purposes is part of the ‘liberty’ protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Here’s a bit of history for you: The legal background of loitering laws go back way before the American Constitution. In fact, laws criminalizing vagrancy and loitering go back to the time of the Black Plague in England more than 500 years ago. Back then the laws had an economic purpose: preventing laborers from traveling to neighboring communities where labor was scarce, where they could demand a higher wage. As time went on and poor populations increased and the unemployed filled English roads to rob those who traveled them, loitering laws became a tool for crime prevention and criminal punishment.

The loitering law allows police to “control persons who, although not traditionally considered criminals, were nonetheless considered undesirable.”

Today loitering laws still focus on crime prevention. The most common reasons for passing loitering laws include stopping drug dealers and prostitutes from frequenting an area, preventing obstruction in public passageways, and of course allowing police to “control persons who, although not traditionally considered criminals, were nonetheless considered undesirable.”  In fact, the Supreme Court held in a landmark case, Thornhill v. Alabama, that the statute in question was too broad and “prohibited otherwise lawful conduct that would otherwise be protected by the First Amendment. The Court also believed that the statute violated due process by granting the police too much discretion and “readily lent itself to harsh and discriminatory enforcement by local prosecuting officials, against particular groups deemed to merit their displeasure.” Sound familiar RCS residents?

This type of law, the United States Supreme Court believes, “bears the hallmark of a police state.”

In another case, the Supreme Court ruled that “cities and states could not pass loitering laws simply as a way of increasing their power to arrest, and required that the state narrowly define who fell within the ordinance and ensure that the person’s actual conduct at least in some way constituted a recognizable offense.

A municipality’s anti-loitering ordinance criminalized innocent conduct and that was the downfall of the ordinance

In another important case the Supreme court ruled that the ordinance was “unconstitutionally vague because it subjected the exercise of a right of assembly to an unascertainable standard, and is unconstitutionally broad because it authorized the punishment of constitutionally protected conduct.” In other words, the court again found that a municipality’s anti-loitering ordinance criminalized innocent conduct and that was the downfall of the ordinance.

The Supreme Court in its rulings on the loitering laws has consistently held that loitering laws without a separate criminal element are overly vague and thus invalid.

In a recent landmark decision that buttressed and emphasized the Supreme Court’s attitude against loitering laws the Court stuck with the presumption that “the freedom to loiter for innocent purposes is part of the ‘liberty’ protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” With those words the highest court of the land placed the freedom to loiter within the greater “liberty” concept of “life, liberty, or property” within the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. A further effect of this is that it the Supreme Court recognized that discriminatory enforcement is the product of vague laws and the rulings prevent biased police from discriminating or retaliating against innocent persons. In other words, a law like the Ravena nonsense code would leave the police free to act out their biases, by unfairly targeting, dispersing, and arresting anyone or any group they disfavor. Sound familiar?

And by the way: The fact of being a young person doesn’t mean that you don’t have constitutional rights. You receive those rights at birth!

This should come as a very clear warning to the village of Ravena and its bunch of ignorant and useless fixtures called the village board (mayor John Bruno, Nancy Warner, William Bailey, Martin Case, Rocco Persico) to the town of Coeymans and its town board (supervisor Stephen Flach, Peter E. Masti, Thomas E. Dolan, Dawn Rogers, Thomas A. Boehm), and especially puts the Coeymans Police Department on particular notice to watch their steps because we’re watching and we’re ready to take action to clean up their acts if they can’t do it themselves. So listen up Bruno, Flach, Darlington. You’ve been served!

And village of Ravena mayor John Bruno and village board members Nancy Warner, William Bailey, Martin Case, Rocco Persico: Take the damned sign off the gazebo. It’s mere presence is proof of your ignorance!

Stay tuned for:

Part Three: The Coeymans Police Department—Scoff-laws in Uniform. How Indifference and Bias Denies You Your Constitutional Rights. (This is a must-read for Coeymans police chief Gregory “DoDo-Cop” Darlington, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” BoBo-Cop-Deluca, and Officers Jason “what investigation” Albert, Ryan “Psychocop” Johnson, Kerry “it’s hearsay” Thompson)

Part Four: Suing the Town of Coeymans Coeymans Police Department for Obstruction of Justice and Misuse of Public Office. How Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington is going to lose his job and his crooked cops may find themselves doing jail time. So you want to make misdemeanors and felonies disappear, Mr Tom Dolan (Ask Tommy about his son’s escapades and where the charges went) and Dawn Rogers (Ask Dawn about her daughter’s friend the bottle and where the alleged DUI charges went). You might want to ask about how evidence is safeguarded in the Coeymans Police Department or their recipe for hitting parents through their kids. Or you might want to ask how to frame a resident or how to screw up a drug raid for a thimble full of marijuana while the real druggies are in the Ravena offices or the Coeymans PD evidence room (just speculating on this one). Of course, the Coeymans Police would rather hassle a bunch of kids congregating on a public gazebo than go after real criminals like Scott Lenden and his helpers (theft, possession of stolen goods, criminal tresspass). But then Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was investigator on that case and didn’t move his fat arse on it for six months until the victims called in the Albany County Sheriff’s team. Or how about arresting a kid for possessing his own prescription drugs and having him jailed for 45 days…on the information provided by a known, convicted druggie? An what about the recent botched up drug raids? Any comment, chief Darlington or admin assistant Kerry Thompson? And what happend to the investigations of Cathy Deluca and Claude Wheeles on falsely reporting an incident—one that never happened but Deluca and Wheeles collaborated and lied about it—maybe Officer Jason Albert, chief Gregory Darlington, or maybe Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca can provide some answers. How does evidence leak out, Mr Deluca, Mr Darlington, Officer Albert?

Part Five: Going after the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District Board of Education, a Turncoat Superintendent of Schools, and the Teachers Union Lackeys Voted to the RCS Board of Education. How’d that all happen? We’ve got some information and facts that are going to knock your socks off and have some people soiling their undies. The real facts behind what cooking on the BoE and what a suicidal, ignorant school district has done to itself by handing over $40 million to crooks!

Darkness Has Descended On the RCS Central School District: Evil, Immorality, and Ethical Disaster!

The RCS CSD Has Made Its Bed for the Next Three Years The Future Is Dark, Dark Indeed

The 2013-14 RCS CSD school budget has passed.
That’s good.

James Latter of ethics and law violations fame has been confirmed by the vote. Jason Hyslop and Patrick Brown, too. Voters have thus voted in the teachers clique, the teachers union, the Coeymanazis. We owe their success to those who did not vote.

RCS Hands the Pearls Over to the Swine

RCS Hands the Pearls Over to the Swine

We Commend the RCS school district and the RCS community for its continuing efforts to self-destruct, to shoot itself in the foot, and to invite abuse, special interests and dirty tricks. You have now three years to weep.

As for the outgoing RCS CSD president, Mr John Vadney, and the only woman on the board*, Ms Judy Sylvester, you offered the community justice, fairness, honesty and integrity. Mr Laszlo Polyak, you offered them an alternative to the decades of suppression and a committed listening ear together with extensive experience. The RCS school district opted instead for a known scoundrel and two nobodies.

It is our sincere hope that you will continue your good work from the gallery and do what has to be done to ensure that the board, now firmly in the hands of villains and scoundrels, now working for the Teachers Union, is kept dancing barefoot on broken glass for the next three years. Make the speakers podium smoke and burn!

As for us, we’ll continue publishing facts and truth, while watching each and every move of each member of the RCS CSD board of education with the finest scrutiny, if only to ensure that every indiscretion and false move is duly reported.

As for the irregularities noted in the polling, they will be the subject of formal written complaints.

As for past delicts of teachers, coaches we encourage parents and residents to file your Notices of Claim and seek recourse and satisfaction. Now is not the time to be weak!

YOU DID NOT LOSE, YOU WERE SIMPLY NOT ELECTED BY THOSE WHO VOTED.

VADNEY, SYLVESTER, POLYAK: NOW IS THE TIME TO ORGANIZE ALL THOSE RESIDENTS AND FOLKS WHO RIGHTLY FEEL THEY’VE BEEN RAPED AGAIN BY THE FIENDS OF RCS. NOW YOU CAN ORGANIZE AS CITIZEN-RESIDENTS AND DRIVE THE MESSAGES HOME. YOU DID NOT LOSE, YOU WERE SIMPLY NOT ELECTED BY THOSE WHO VOTED. ALL THIS MEANS IS THAT YOU CONTINUE THE BATTLE ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY FROM THE TRENCHES. YOU WILL NO LONGER BE SUBJECTED TO THE BACKSTABBING, THE HUMILIATION, AND THE HYPOCRISY AND HAVING TO HOLD YOUR TONGUES. NOW IS THE TIME TO CHANGE YOUR TACTICS AND STRATEGIES.

Thank you for your fine efforts Mr John Vadney, Ms Judy Sylvester, and Mr Laszlo Polyak. You are heros and champions  in the finest senses of the words! Now you’ll have the time for your families and to protect their interests. You’ve already spent too much time away from them casting pearls before swine!

Dinner Time, RCS! The Editor

Dinner Time, RCS!
The Editor

* Editor’s Note: We are informed by a reader that Ms Sylvester was not the “only woman on the RCS CSD board of education,” that Alice Whalen is also a woman (according to the reader). If that is a fact, then we apologize (not for Alice Whalen claiming to be a woman) for our error. We will accept that reader’s observation to be true fact and will not require documentation or verification in this case.

Two Section 8 Cows Complain to Shop’n Save management about two candidates passing out flyers in the public area, outside the store: “If you allow them to pass out flyers, we’ll never shop here again!Silly-ass cows! Where else would you shop?
No place else would have you Fiends of RCS, Twinkie-sucking vampires.
That’s how Coeymanazi democracy works.
That kind of Latter-Hyslop-Brown behavior
would never happen with Vadney, Sylvester or Polyak!

(On a different note: What’s up with Jerry Deluca refusing to serve an opponent’s wife and children refreshments after the ballroom dancing exhibition a the elementary school? What’s up Jer’. Are you taking it out on family members, AGAIN? Yup! Yer a real community builder. Yes! You are! Hypocrite!)

Miss Latter-Hyslop-Brown Piggies: “We’ll never shop here again!”

Our advice to the SpLatter-PigSlop-Browneye Miss Piggies is to take your food-stamp-stuffed pig’s-ear purses and stuff them deeply where the sun don’t shine no mo’.

shopnsave_logoShop’n Save’s action taken asking the candidates to stop passing out flyers and preventing their lawful activity is an outright violation of their civil rights, a violation of their freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States…

loser handActually, Shop’n Save’s action taken and preventing them from passing out campaign flyers and preventing their lawful activity is an outright violation of the campaigners’ civil rights, a violation of their freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. It may also be interpreted as a violation of their right of peaceful  assembly and obstruction of democratic process. This may very well become a nice fat lawsuit and even a civil rights issue! Shows you how indifference to citizen’s rights and the vile, nasty, uncivil behavior of a few Nazi cows can get the Shop’n Save people and their parent Hannaford  into a heap of trouble! It’s not so much the two cows and their stupidity but the stupidity of the Shop’n Save management that is going to cause the problem, because the people passing out the flyers were not in the store but outside in a public area. Bad news for Shop’n Save!

Shop'n Save

Our advice to Shop’n Save and Hannaford: You’d better be quick with a public apology or you can count on our promoting civil and criminal charges against you and your management.

Friends of RCS BoE candidate Patrick E. Brown is a lawyer but is silent about the civil rights violations being perpetrated by his backers!

 What does Friends of RCS candidate lawyer Pat Brown have to say about their civil rights violations?

What does Friends of RCS candidate lawyer Pat Brown have to say about their civil rights violations?

And so we have Friends of RCS with their shyster lawyer candidate, Patrick E. Brown of Brown and Weinraub, an Albany law firm, violating their opponents’ civil rights! How does that grab you, Friends? What’s Brown got to say about this latest Coeymanazi embarrassment?

We’ve already reported on Friends of RCS suppressing free speech and expression by banning or censoring posts and comments on their Friends of RCS Facebook site, and the comments made that Freinds of RCS “will not tolerate negative comments about their candidates.”  And we’ve also heard about their lie that the “love the discussion and dialogue,” too. So we’d be really foolish given circumstances like these to expect any different from their candidates, James Latter, Jason Hyslop, and Patrick Brown!

Think of all the taxpayers, civic-minded shoppers, Americans you’ve probably pissed off!

As for the servants-of-section-eight management of Shop’n Slave, you got no guts, no cojones, you prostitute principles for food stamps! Locals like you, Shop’n Slave Smiths are worse than the Coeymanazis! Now that this is out, think of all the taxpayers, civic-minded shoppers you’ve probably pissed off!

Bad move Shop’n Slave. Bad public image effects. Bad publicity still coming your way!

Civil Rights Violations. And Lawsuits Looming! Big Settlement or Big Judgment? Nice going, Shop’n Save!

Let’s Talk Performance, Experience, Service: Vadney, Sylvester, Polyak

Cut and Paste, Email the link to this blog to family, friends, neighbors! The link is:

Let’s Talk Performance and Service to the Community.
Let’s Look at the Hard Facts.

The Resident-Businesspersons Group on the Present RCS Board of Education Has Delivered under the Presidency of John M. Vadney and with the Collaboration of Judy Sylvester, Mike Robbins, Rodney Krzykowski, and Jeff Lukens:

A 2% Tax Levy and a 1.17% REDUCTION in Spending

John M. Vadney, in addition to having been selected as RCS Board of Education President several times, and during his 6 Years of Service to this Community on the RCS BoE,  has delivered on his promises on:

  • Weighted grades
  • Increasing graduation rates for the past 3 years in a row
  • Elementary class sizes stayed consistent and extra support staff provided when needed
  • REACH Young Scholars Programs retained
  • Automatic pool cover installed to reduce energy costs
  • Insulation has been installed in the elementary schools resulting in EnergyStar Awards to the District
  • Hot water provided for middle school showers
  • Used oil burner provided for the bus garage
  • Introduction of propane buses
  • Septic system repairs done at a savings of $100,000
  • Savings on Bus Garage roof repairs from $300,000 to $130,000
  • APPR Grant #394,000 for 3 years
  • Restored 5 p.m. bus run

JUDY SYLVESTER, during her first year on the RCS board of education, has spearheaded or collaborated on the following projects:

  • APPR Grant of $394,000 for 3 years
  • Restoration of the middle school homework club
  • Alternative Education Program at the RCS high school
  • Restoring of the GED program to the RCS district
  • Has advocated fiscal restraint (for example, pushing for the 2% tax levy, savings, and retention of programs.

LASZLO POLYAK. Everybody knows Laszlo! He attends every RCS BoE meeting and he’s got the guts to put all the cards on the table and get the answers. He’s a familiar face in town and we can’t think of anyone who’s more interested in hearing what you have to say. He’s come out on village issues, on town issues, but most  importantly on education issues, and is a champion against bullying our kids. He has a degree in business, teacher certification for business, has worked for the NYS Unified Court System for a judge, has been an NYSED official, knows everyone in the Education Department. One thing’s for certain, if you get Laszlo’s ear, you have the ear of the board!

VADNEY #1, POLYAK #3, SYLVESTER #5

It’s That Easy !       

Want More?

We Got More Answers!

Q: What will be maintained in the 2013-14 school -year budget?

A: Contrary to what you may have heard, the 2013-14 school-year budget approved by the RCS BoE under the presidency of John M. Vadney and with the collaboration of the resident and business team on the RCS BoE, continues to support:

  • All existing core academic course, including ADVANCED PLACEMENT and UNIVERSITY in the HIGH SCHOOL offerings.
  • Class sizes within existing standards set by board policy.
  • REACH and Young Scholars elementary enrichment programs.
  • Middle school Accelerated Math and Science programs.
  • Career and Tech, New Visions and Tech Valley program opportunities.
  • Universal pre-K.
  • Student Field Trips at all levels.
  • Existing extracurricular and athletic offerings.
  • Pool & track maintenance and operations and aquatics programming.
  • And more!

Q: What has been added in the 2013-14 school-year budget?

A: In addition to the current programs and operations that are supported by the budget based on the 2% tax levy approved by the resident-business majority on the RCS board of education (which was incidentally opposed by Mr James Latter!), you will find:

  • A shared assistant principal at the Middle and High Schools.
  • Restoration of the pre-K mid-day bus run.
  • Financial aid to cover AP test fees for students-in-need.
  • Reinstatement of the summer reading program.
  • Resurfacing of the track and tennis courts.
  • Asbestos abatement in the high school.
  • School security upgrades.
  • 5-year lease purchases of technology and maintenance equipment.
  • The maximum funding allowed by the state for retirement, unemployment, employee benefit accrued liability, debt service, and tax certiorari services.
  • And more to come!

Now. Let’s Compare this to the “Accomplishments” of Mr James Latter and his Supporters, and Mr Jason Hyslop, and Mr Patrick E. Brown. (This is going to be too easy!)

James Latter: How long has he been taking up space on the RCS board of education? How many years? What has he actually done? Well, to be very honest, he’s lucky he hasn’t landed in jail! Rather than go through all of his scandals, which are about all he’s done during his time on the board, just review his statements on why he thinks he should be re-elected. All he doesn’t tell us is not what he’s done (What’s to tell?) and what his vision is in concrete terms, all he tells us is, well, vague campaign promises. But Latter has given us:

  • Bad press and overtaxation (Latter opposed the 2% tax levy and sided with his teachers clique on the BoE for at least a 3.58% increase!).
  • A reputation for dysfunction and disrespect, scandal. His record for violations of confidentiality, shady connections with local so-called non-profit organizations, his abuse of students and parents. It’s been in the News Herald. Latter has a special set of double standards, too.
  • Otherwise, Latter has been a speed bump on the RCS CSD board of education whenever it comes to anything good for taxpayers and the community. His record speaks for itself. And it ain’t something I’d want on my résumé.

Jason Hyslop. Before the campaign Hyslop was an unknown in the community. No real vision, just campaign promises. No program. No concrete statements. No experience at all. Marginal education (finished 1 year at a 2-year college). No professional training. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Too bad, kiddo! Maybe the Teen Center will let you be a volunteer. Do us all a favor and vote NO! on this guy.

Patrick E. Brown. Before the campaign Brown chose to be an unknown in the community. All this guy’s got going for him is a head of shoulder-length gray locks. So if you want hair, you vote for Brown. He may yet grow out of his hippy phase but not on RCS BoE time. He’s made a number of contradictory statements or outright lies. As a shyster lawyer specializing in unions, big business and, get this, advisor to the Cuomos (he doesn’t broadcast that in his campaign but he plays it up big on his law firm’s website). Yeah! Advisor to the Cuomos! The same Cuomos who have worked so hard to reduce spending on education, who have rushed through legislation to curtail citizen’s constitutional rights, who have driven business out the New York and left us to pick up the slack. Is that the kind of guy you want on your BoE making decisions for you and your kids? Hell NO! Vote NO! on Brown.

Patrick E. Brown’s wife, first announced his candidacy on Facebook, but didn’t even mention his name! Mary Partridge-Brown, the one who’s always leaning very cozy close to Matt Miller at our BoE meetings, the double-dipping terminated “energy manager” who was pocketing $18,000 a year of your dough while collecting his teacher salary of $80,000+ AND doing a reduced teaching load so he could do his union work on your dime. The same Matt Miller who was allegedly inciting kids to bully at the high school during last year’s brutal budget battles. The same Matt Miller who was evicted from the May 14 BoE meeting together with his buddy Jerry Deluca for his misconduct and outbursts.

What are his accomplishments? Well according to Patrick E. Brown, he admits he has no experience on a board of education. In fact, as far as we know, he’s never attended one of ours! He has no BoE-related experience or accomplishments. But he does have a wife who is close to Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, and the teachers clique on the board. Heard enough? In other words, like Jason Hyslop, he offers NADA, ZILCH, ZERO to persuade us to consider him, much less to elect him.

Friends of RCS are not running a single woman candidate.
Doesn’t that tell you something about them?
All of their candidates are men!

Do ya think Friends of RCS are sexist?
No friends of women?

James Latter, Jason Hyslop, and Patrick Brown are all supported by the Friends of RCS, a group on Facebook that have some very disturbing practices and notions about free speech and discussion. All you have to do is read the most recent articles on this blog to get the complete information. We’ve already published it for you and we won’t repeat it here.

So, Readers, Friends, Neighbors. That’s it in a nutshell. If you want performance and experience you’ll vote for John M. Vadney (#1), Laszlo Polyak (#3) and Judy Sylvester (#5) who you know will deliver on their record of experience and performance.

The Green+Gold RCS Champions: Green for Growth, Gold for Value!

If you want violations of policy and law, disrespect for students, parents, and fellow board members you’ll waste your precious vote on James Latter.

If you want to buy a cat-in-a-sack, take a real gamble, ensure that you have no voice on the BoE, get no experience and no performance (by their own admissions) you’ll waste your votes on Jason Hyslop or Patrick Brown.

Just remember to hissssss! when you slither out of the polling place so that they know you’re one of them. Hissssss!

But we have great faith in YOU! We know you’ll do what’s best for this RCS district and for this community…

Just Posted: Read the News Herald, November 10, 2011, “Parent Charges Latter with Protocol Breach,” by Hilary Hawke. Click on this link: News Herald Latter Complaint Nov. 2011.

When People Misbehave in Public and are Disorderly, They Dampen the Pubic’s Enthusiasm to Exercise Free Speech and Expression Guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. In Other Words, the Disorderly Individuals Interfere with Your Constitutional Rights!

This has been an age-old tactic by terrorists and antisocial groups: send in a bunch of thugs to disrupt the meeting, scare people or make them nervous, and the people will be hesitant to speak out or to meet. The Bolsheviks did it. The Communist Chinese did it. The Stalinist Russians did it. The KuKlux Clan did it. The Nazis did it. It worked for them and our own thugs think it will work, too. It’s up to the rest of us to put the thugs in their place and to show them that thug tactics don’t work in this community. Get it Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, Fiends of RCS, Sarah Engel (a teacher whose teacher husband is Howard “Bray” Engel of the RCS teachers clique on the BoE, and her mass-e-mail campaign as Fiends of RCS), and any others who think that they are better than the rest of us.

I’d like to start with some comments made on local groups’ Facebook pages this week. The comments were posted in response to a local figure’s post about misbehavior by adults at the May 14, 2013, RCS board of education meeting.

Apart from some absolutely stupid comments made on several of the RCS Facebook pages by a character who likes to dress up in a fireman’s outfit and who also likes to read the Coeymanazi manifesto and recite its parts on Facebook (Yes! I’m talking about YOU, Mr Craig Wickham!), some of the comments I’ve recently read about misconduct by attendees at board of education meetings tend to reflect a sofening of attitudes. Does this mean the community is becoming more civil? Let’s hope so but let’s look at those comments first.

John Rousseau: Why? Because a large number of the voting public…rely on what is being broadcast and published in emails,webpages, and blogs as “truthful”. Its sad that many rely on these opinions as fact, which is why I’ve been checking some these opinions…I don’t think I need to remind anyone of the hateful public rhetoric surrounding Jews prior to WWII.. both in Europe and in America. Brandeis [Louis Brandeis, US Supreme Court Justice] was at the forefront of many decisions regarding free speech, exercising it, and its limitations:
“If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.”

Thank you Mr Rousseau, for that very supportive comment. While justice Brandeis did support some very questionable rulings, his position on free speech and expression is scriptural. That’s the principal we live by on this blog and, Mr Rousseau, once again, Thank you! for your express support and that very supportive statement.

Rob Thomas:  John, you are entitled to your opinion as we all are. I would never deny that of anyone. I am more concerned with the manner in which someone voices their opinion…and I need to say that good manners and civility are slowly eroding in our community. People would be surprised how one may listen to you and be acceptable of one’s point of view if only respect was present.

Very true, Mr Thomas. We are entitled to our opinions and, as Mr Rousseau points out, it is certainly worthwhile to check the facts to arrive at the truth. That, too, is what we do on this blog. The question we all need to ask ourselves is “Why?” as you state, “good manners and civility are slowly eroding in our community.” This may have a lot to do with how children and young adults perceive the models that community adults provide. I provide some examples below of some egregious [=disgraceful] behavor of some local adults, and ask readers to decide: How does that affect our young people? Even ask yourself, How does that sort of behavior affect YOU, an adult?

The very thread started by the comment on the impression Ms Suni Martinez Swann made at a recent BoE meeting, and the outrageous outbursts of Mr Matt Miller, teachers union representative and teacher at the RCS high-school, and Mr Gerald Deluca, an employee of the Coeymans police department, is an example of the answer to your question. Ms Swann is an outspoken contributor to several local groups, and her conduct may simply have been a momentary loss of control. Matt Miller’s and Gerald Deluca’s conduct is simply habitual but  unacceptable, even if we do agree on free expression, in or out of an official scenario. Miller and Deluca are public figures and must be held to a higher standard than the Suni Martinez Swans’s among us.

We also need to realize that when someone is sure of her or his position, s/he does not have to engage in rudeness, uncivility, outburst, etc. When a person is secure and sure about her or his opinion or position, s/he can sit quietly, respectfully,  and assuredly; when a person doesn’t believe in her or his position or does not feel it’s convincing or persuasive, then they resort to rude attack, loudness, outburst, aggression, even violence.  So what does that tell us about Miller’s and Deluca’s behavior and conduct?

John Rousseau. First… recall that this was a rule proposed by Mr Vadney and agreed upon by the BOE in order to keep their meetings brief, and not running into the wee hours. Everyone needs to remember that it is the BOE’s meeting, and the public is granted access **only** to observe. The privilege of public comment at the meeting is granted by the BOE…Good luck with that. (RCS Friends and More)

John Rousseau: Disagreeing with the opinion is one thing…trying to limit the expression of those opinons, and where and how it is voiced is not just wrong… its against civil law. (Save the Arts at RCS)

Thank you again, Mr Rousseau. Again, you are on target. As I mentioned above, people tend naturally to be intimidated when exposed to aggression or outbursts. It’s an abusive tactic used by persons and groups who don’t fully believe in the strength or persuasiveness of their positions. When truth, fact and logic fail them, they turn to aggression or violence. Mr Matt Miller and Mr Gerald Deluca are good examples of this observation right here in this community. Other examples are given below.

Rob Thomas: John, you are entitled to your opinion as we all are. I would never deny that of anyone. I am more concerned with the manner in which someone voices their opinion. I, too, am a senior and I need to say that good manners and civility are slowly eroding in our community. People would be surprised how one may listen to you and be acceptable of one’s point of view if only respect was present. (Save the Arts at RCS)

We’d like now to move on to an illustration of how we behave may be perceived differently than we intended. Several communications seem to support that fact: That when we act or react in public, the public may perceive the behavior differently. Ms Swann insists that she is a “lady” but the comments seem to reflect a different impression. [Editor’s Note: This is in no way whatsoever representing the opinion that Ms Martinez Swann is not a “lady,” however she may define that term, but that her behavior was perceived to be inappropriate and rude, uncivil.]

Suni Martinez Swann: Donna, ladies don’t yell. I am a lady. I was asking my RCS Board President when the three minutes were up….:) (RCS Friends and More)

A word of advice: It’s all in the eye of the beholder whether you’re a lady or not. Self-assessments don’t count here. Perhaps in future you should let the board do what it’s there to do, make the rule that ensure its orderly function. And stop looking for reasons to be negative. Moreover, perhaps you should reassess how you behave in public and the impression you make. You seem to feel you behaved like a “lady.” Apparently a number of people who observed your “ladylike” behavior had a different impression.

Suni Martinez Swann: …EVERYONE!…I agree rudeness is inappropriate. When I first looked at Mr. Vadney, I asked with a questionable look & with 3 fingers held if time was up. I did not expect Ms. Vadney to respond as she did, which prompted me to ask verbally “Is it 3 minutes?” …I respect the work ethic of both Mr. and Mrs. Dawn Vadney extremely well. This couple worked tirelessly alongside my husband and I with a volunteer effort that helped those in need after a natural disaster. And we appreciated it very much. I am not on a “side” nor for an “interest”. I am for my child(ren) and seeing that those who serve, on the board (whoever it may be), align with my philosophy of education, ethics, and morals. (RCS Friends and More)

Well, thank you Ms Martinez-Swann, for your comment, which is very supportive of our principles, and also of Mr Vadney and his dedication to this community. But we are concerned by some of the contradictions in your statements.

Whether or not you expected a reaction or not, don’t you think you were out-of-line or overstepping your role as a spectator. (Please see Mr Rousseau’s comment, above.) Mr Vadney was quite correct in advising you that “We have a timekeeper over here.“” The timekeeper was not Mr Vadney, by the way. You were, in fact, asked not to “interrupt.” Interrupting only delays the speaker’s finishing. It’s rude and unfair, too. In fact, Mr Vadney later twice advised the speaker that her time was up and she should finish. That sounds to me (1) like the board had the situation under control, and (2) you were out of line. If you disagree, we would welcome your comments.

Your statement that you want to ensure “that those who serve, on the board (whoever it may be), align with my philosophy of education, ethics, and morals,” is a contradiction of the statement you made immediately before, “I am not on a “side” nor for an “interest.” Furthermore, you make the impression that you are arrogant and close-minded when you want a group elected by the greater community to “align with your philosopy of education, ethics, and morals.” If that isn’t one-sided or representing a one-sided interest, I don’t know what is! Again, Ms Martinez-Swann, you live in a community and, like it or not, you need to be consciously aware of the impressions you make.

This Community Has To Decide Who’s Running Things

“The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”
(Louis Dembitz Brandeis, Associate Justice, U.S.S.C.)

Taking effective charge starts with self-awareness, with admission of the bad as well as the good, of recognizing when we are in denial and deceiving ourselves. It starts with our recognizing which version of the facts we are going to accept as true and how our own agendas and, as Suni Martinez-Swann writes, whether we are going to expect the entire community to align with our own “philosopy of education, ethics, and morals;” in other words, shortsightedness, one-sidedness, bullyism.

  1. When we give a gift, we have to let go of it and turn it over to the recipient, don’t we? Same is true when by our vote we turn over some of our authority and power to the successful candidate, whether we have voted for her or him or not. That’s democracy, people.
  2. The comments we’ve examined above mean that we need to do a couple of things here:
  3. Behave ourselves, act with respect, be civil.
  4. Listen more and talk less. God gave us two ears and one mouth for a very good reason.
  5. Be very aware of how we are perceived in public, and conduct ourselves to make the most positive impression, especially on young persons.
  6. Let go and let our elected officials do what we entrusted them to do!
  7. Don’t just talk, make sense. Just saying something is wrong is not enough, you must be able to defend your position and, in matters that affect the community, it’s not your good but the common good that guides the discussion. If you want a community, you must accept the rules of living in community.
  8. We, you and I, are responsible for this community and how it runs or doesn’t. We have to live here, do business here, raise our chldren here. Not the Albany Times Union!animation burning question

So the Burning Question Is: Who Has Gotten the Albany Times Union to Publish More Garbage on this Community. Who In This Community Is Feeding Them The Junk That the Albany Times Union is AGAIN Printing About Our Community.

We really want to know and you should really want to know who’s getting the Albany Times Union to again focus their vile attention on our community. Once you identify who’s feeding that useless rag, take her or him out and lynch’em! Tar and feathers is too good for them!

Can you imagine the gall, the arrogance, the utter scandal that the Albany Times Union should publish something like, “RCS You can do Better” (Times Union, May 17, 2013, click this link to read the Absolute Insult to the RCS community!) You may not think the community is broken or that the board of education is broken. You may not agree on all or even any of the issues. But YOU and only YOU, RCS residents,taxpayers, should openly and loudly punish any of the media who makes a statement like: “Three members of a travesty of a school board are up for re-election on Tuesday.” How dare anyone in this community feed the Times Useless. What’s even worse still—but not likely—is that the Times Useless would print something like that scandalous, insulting “opinion.” on its own.

We’ve Said It Before and We’ll Repeat It Again: BOYCOTT the Albany Times Useless!

Find Out Who’s Getting the Times Union to Print Shite Like That and SHUN That or Those Individuals!

One thing is certain: Whoever is getting the Albany Times Useless to print stuff like that is CERTAINLY NOT THE ONES BEING TORN APART IN THE ARTICLE. So how many choices does that leave you for deciding who’s feeding the snake a.k.a. Albany Times Union?

Anyone feeding the Albany Times Useless should be publicly stripped naked and tarred and feathered! Anyone feeding the Albany Times Useless by contributing negative comments should be publicly stripped naked and tarred and feathered, as a traitor to this community and for undermining the good faith efforts of this community to flourish. Anyone who stands silent while the Albany Times Useless prints this insulting, scandalous garbage is an accessory to the insult and should be SHUNNED by the community!

AND YOU SHOULD BE, TOO!

AND YOU SHOULD BE, TOO!

So Think About This and Decide for Yourself What You’re Going to Do…In 2012 when the teachers clique and the Deluca thugs, now known as Friends of RCS, couldn’t get the votes, and didn’t get them in 2012, even though they resorted to some pretty underhanded tactics to sway the public, and violated not just a couple policies and laws while they were at it, they then tried to recover the majority on the RCS Board of Education by even more devious means. Here are just a couple of examples, let’s see if you can remember them:

  • They tried to slander sitting board member Rodney Krzykowski into resigning. When that failed they started feeding the Albany Times Useless with scurrilous information, trying to defame Mr Krzykowsi and scandalizing the RCS district and the board of education. They failed.
  • When sitting board member Jeff Lukens’ son got into some trouble and Mr Lukens stood by his son, they dragged Mr Lukens through the dirt. What’s a father to do when his son gets into trouble? Take him out back and shoot him? They failed.
  • They then tried to frame sitting board president John Vadney. But a number of witnesses came forward and Mr Vadney called their bluff. They failed.
  • Then certain teachers (Matt Miller)  incited students in the high school and board president John Vadney’s son was ambushed by several young hoodlums when he was entering the school. It was all caught on tape. The administration under that useless union lackey Elizabeth Smith dragged their feet and tried to sweep the incident under the carpet. That was until Mrs Vadney showed them she meant business and filed a Notice of Claim telling them either do something or else. (By the way, no lawsuit was ever filed, contrary to what the Coeymanazis in Fiends of RCS might be circulating.) What would you have done if your kid was attacked and injured and no one seemed to give a shite? Blow it off, maybe? Again, they failed!
  • Then they came out in force when the board went forward to hire a professional superintendent, Dr Alan R. McCartney. They had everything to say about that and most of it was lies. McCartney was hired and has been doing a stellar job. Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, Fiends of RCS, Coeymanazis failed yet again!

That’s Sure Proof that Friends of RCS have NO VALUES! They’re IMMORAL and UNETHICAL!

Then there’s the 2013-14 budget. Fiends of RCS, Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca all came out in force with doom and gloom predictions of services and programs getting cut, no money left, job losses, etc. None of it true. The Vadney, Sylvester, Robbins, Krzykowski, Lukens team approved the budget with their majority; the teachers clique wanted a higher levy (at least 3.58%) and lost (AGAIN). In the process Dr McCartney and the Vadney majority not only kept most programs but even added some! So where are all of these lies coming from, we’d like to know. And why?

This just in: A local resident attempted to post a comment on the Friends of RCS Facebook site and got this response:

Beth Sullivan Pike: Our page is supporting 3 candidates. If you do not want to support them, you can comment elsewhere. Thank you!

Fiends of RCS: The Friends of RCS have chosen to support three fine candidates: James Latter, Jason Hyslop and Pat Brown. We know not everyone will agree with our choices. It is up to you to make your choices on election day, May 21st. BUT, please take your comments for the other candidates to other Facebook pages that are supporting your candidates. We will not tolerate negative comments against our candidates. Thank you!

[Source: Fiends of RCS @ https://www.facebook.com/#!/FriendsOfRCS?fref=ts ]

No that’s real Naxi of you, Fiends! Friends of RCS is the group that is supporting the Latter-Hyslop-Brown mutant. It’s also the group that claims to “love discussion and dialogue,” but only their kind of discussion and dialogue. Isn’t that an embarrassment to this community, to our democratic principles? Thank You! Beth Sullivan Pike for making our point for us!

I know. They know. And you already know. So why fool ourselves? They’re the same thugs who are backing the Latter-Hyslop-Brown mutant.

Latter-Hyslop-BrownThree Heads, One Snake

Latter-Hyslop-Brown
Three Heads, One Snake

Here are some more questions that might open your eyes a bit wider to the truth:

Let me ask you when ever have you seen any of the resident-business people standing on chairs and shouting at a board of education meeting? You probably can’t think of a single instance because it never happens. But what about the Fiends of RCS? The Coeymanazis?The most recent instance was at the May 14th board of education meeting when Suni Martinez Schwan was shouting at the board and at a speaker at the podium. Then Matt Miller and Jerry Deluca had an outburst and were evicted from the meeting by Dr McCartney. Well, that happens to be the way they are: animals.

When have you ever heard Mr Vadney, Ms Sylvester, Mr Robbins, Mr Lukens, or Mr Krzykowski ever address another board member disrespectfully or demeaningly. I’ve never seen or heard that happen and I review all of the videos of the meetings. Can we say the same thing about Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, James Latter, Jerry Deluca? NO!  As a matter of fact, that’s the way they are: animals. Note that I didn’t include Edward “Teddy” Reville because he’s so comatose at most meetings you’d doubt he was alive. How’d he get on the board, anyway?

And what about the Deluca thugs? Now that’s a bunch of savages (I won’t even call them animals, it would offend the animals). Their motto is: “If You Don’t Have Facts Make Some Up!” Enough said.

And then the residents-in-denial like Denise Carl Hughes (her husband, Scott Hughes, jumped ship when he was prez of the RCS BoE and the going got rough. Now she’s a big deal? She’s a vicious biatch, nothing more.  History, people, remember the HISTORY!) and Eileen Vosburgh and their minions don’t think this community is broken, dysfunctional. Well it is, girls, admit it. And it’s people like you who make it broken and dysfunctional. Admit it.

So, ladies and gentlemen, if you really want to put respect and integrity on the RCS board of education you won’t do it by re-electing James Latter or electing Jason Hyslop or Patrick Brown.

The signs tell it all. Latter, Hyslop and Brown are not independent, they are part of a like minded group and they’re telling you that by joining together even on their signs.The teachers clique and the Coeymanazis own Latter, Hyslop, and Brown. They are owned by the special interests. They’re tools.

You won’t find Vadney or Sylvester or Polyak listed together. Why? Because they don’t belong to anyone but the community who elects them. They are independent and aren’t owned by anyone. They think on their feet and don’t take orders from unions, special interests or godfathers.

So, dear readers, I ask you: Given this information and your God-given intelligence can you make the right choice?

Keep in mind that it’s not the people being torn apart by the Albany Times Useless who are the ones scandalizing and insulting the RCS district and community. And it’s not the people being torn apart by the Albany Times Useless who are feeding the misinformation and lies to the Albany Times Useless who are scandalizing and insulting the RCS district and community. And it’s not the people being torn apart by the Albany Times Useless that are breaking this RCS district and community (while denying the very results of their unscrupulous and criminal behavior). We know who it is: The very ones opposing Dr Alan R. McCarney and the good work of Mr John Vadney, Ms Judy Sylvester, the promise represented by Mr Laszlo Polyak, and the resident-business team on the RCS BoE. Yes! We know who you are! And you’re scared shiteless, aren’t you?

Monkey Business

monkey jokeThis district is like a tree full of monkeys, all on different limbs at different levels.
Some monkeys are on top, some down below.
The monkeys on top look down and see a tree full of smiling faces.
The monkeys on the bottom looking up see nothing but assholes.
Think about that and decide if you want to be on top or stay on the bottom branch.

James Latter: Why He’s A Bad Choice


It’s very important that you get the word out to all of your friends, family and neighbors before Mary 21, 2013. Do your part get out the vote and to clean up the RCS district and to put good, competent, and experienced women and men on the RCS board of Education!


James Latter Should Have Been Removed from the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Board of Education More than a Year Ago when A Parent Reported that He Had Violated the FERPA Law. Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith Refused to Launch and Investigation. Then “Retired.

James Latter

James Latter
A Very Poor Choice

Violation of Confidentiality, Violation of the FERPA Law, Unsavory Connections with the RCS Sports Association and their Tax Questions, Admission of Guilt, Works for the Saudi Arabian Sabic Corporation, No Time to Read BoE Memos. But the Candidate for a Board of Education Seat running with Shyster Pat Brown and a Noob Jason Hyslop. NO WAY!

Read the entire News Herald article on Latter’s Breach of Confidentiality and his shady connections with the RCS Sports Association (News Herald, November 10, 2011, “Parent Charges Latter with Protocol Breach,” by Hilary Hawke. Click on this link: News Herald Latter Complaint Nov. 2011)

We’ve reported on James Latter’s escapades and questionable connections many times in the past. We’ve recommended that he resign from the RCS board of education because of his irresponsible and embarrassing, even illegal conduct. Parents and residents have called for his resignation, and for an investigation of this man. Now he’s campaigning for your votes to put him back on the board of education where he can continue to do his damage. Is the man insane?

We have received documents that will shed new light on this old problem and, now, before the elections, we need to get it out there so that residents know the truth about this character who should be on trial, not on a board of education!

If you recall, this is one of the members of the teachers clique on the RCS board of education. The one’s who vote as one block against anything the resident-business people propose. He’s part of the group that forced last years 6.8% tax levy down residents’ throats and got the entire school district investigated. He’s part of the group that tried to kill this year’s 2% levy and push through a more than 3.58% levy. He’s also the one being supported by the Coeymanazi group, Friends of RCS (a bigger lie has never been told unless Jerry Deluca fathered it), and is receiving the endorsement of guess who, the local RCS Teachers Association Political Action Committee (or that’s what Matt Miller would like us to believe).

We have very good information that maybe the Coeymanazis are supporting this mindless character, and maybe the secret Friends of RCS are supporting this boob, and maybe Matt Miller is, too. But one thing is very certain, not many of the ethical, professional teachers in this district are willing to support him, despite the propaganda Matt Miller puts out for his union.

Here’s what we learn from the documents we’ve received (the full text can be read or downloaded by just clicking this link  James Latter Misconduct-R)

Far from denying his misconduct or offering an explanation, Latter admits to the misconduct.

In those documents at least one RCS board of education member writes to then interim superintendent Elizabeth Smith, requesting that she initiate an investigation of James Latter’s breach of district policies, violation of FERPA law provisions on confidentiality, his texting his sister during executive session and displaying her comments to other BoE members, and the possibility of legal action against the District as the direct result of Latter’s misconduct. Far from denying his misconduct or offering an explanation, Latter admits to the misconduct.

The correspondence to superintendent Smith also notes Latter’s relationship with the RCS Sports Association and the obvious “conflict of interest” that the board felt was “affecting his duty as a BoE member.”

The documents include a parent’s complaint that a Latter violated district policy and federal law when Latter forwarded a confidential e-mal from the parent and he distributed the e-mail to Bob Doren, Ron Reese, Ron Vanderzee, and others, including the JV and Varsity football coaches.

Mr James Latter is a hypocrite who works by double standards.

The parent complains that “Mr Latter broke the very same protocol he has consistently preached that others need to follow, and he has quickly called for investigations of others he has accused of doing the same.” Mr Latter is a hypocrite who works by double standards. “Mr Latter maybe you should start to practice what you preach,” writes the parent.

Mr Latter has no respect for students, parents, policies, the law, and is not above placing students and parents at risk.

The parent also reports on an incident where Latter told a special ed student “to stop acting like a f***king retard.” The parent offered her child as a witness to the incident. And the parent demands an investigation into the incident and demands that Latter resign. It is obvious that Mr Latter has no respect for students, parents, policies, the law, and is not above placing students and parents at risk.

Another resident, JA, who voices his concern about the violation of confidentiality by a sitting board member, namely Mr James Latter (page 2).

But JA goes even further when he points out Mr Latter’s conflicts of interest:

“I’m more concerned after learning that Mr Latter is associated with members of the auxiliary that supports the various sporting events when that auxiliary has used its not-for-profit funding to actually fund “public education campaigns” and I’m being generous here, during times of election which, as I understand, is under IRS not-for-profit law, is expressly prohibited for a not-for-profit charitable organization to actually use its not-for-profit funding to fund such activities in an election campaign. And to take out a full-page ad and other things against certain board members or even supporting other members is contrary to public policy in terms of not-far-profit status. The fact that you’re directly associated, I understand, relatives are involved in that association [the RCS Sports Association. Latter’s stepfather, Mr Jeff Stambaugh was president of the RCS Sportsman Association at the time.]”

 JA continues:

“And so, in light of this new revelation where you’re sharing confidential emails, I think that members of the public have a right to expect that communications to the board are held in confidence until the board as a whole decides to act on them or until the administration takes appropriate action … but certainly children should not be put in jeopardy because of personal or other agendas. And so, like others here, Mr Latter, I would call for your resignation. I find this totally inappropriate and highly questionable, given the other activities that I’ve outlined.”

 Of course, superintendent Smith as usual screwed up the facts and did nothing. Seemed that she was frequently a candidate for Alzheimer’s research whenever it came to dealing with the teacher’s clique or some Coeymanazi group.  Smith’s response to an inquiry by the parent: “I have not opened an investigation.” In fact, Smith even avoided communicating with the parent on the issue of calling the student an insulting name. Smith also failed to grasp the seriousness of the breach of confidentiality despite communications from board members, parents, residents. Duh!

In an email Latter admits his betrayal of confidentiality, admits that he should have let Ms Smith handle the matter through formal channels.

Latter’s initial misconduct was blown up tenfold!

Finally, the parent has to delete her e-mail account because she was getting responses from the individuals to whom Latter forwarded the confidential communication. In emails from coach Vanderzee, Bob Dorance, Ron Racey all of which have a demeaning, defensive tone. Bob Dorrance even assumes an insulting tone by writing, “If you are truly just a concerned parent…” What the devil is that supposed to mean? “truly just a concerned parent?” What else would the parent be, Mr Dorrance, you dolt!?! No wonder the parent felt the need to delete an e-mail account to avoid reading their defensive assaults. Of course, their facts were all messed up and they didn’t bother to communicate with each other. So Latter’s initial misconduct was blown up tenfold by the very people to whom he forwarded the confidential communication and who had no need to know of it!

Any person who places a football win before the welfare and safety of a student or before the duty of confidentiality under the policies of the school district as provided in the FERPA legislation should not be on the board in the first place. Any person who is as arrogant as Mr Latter has been in the past to ignore the demands of concerned parents and residents does not belong on the board.

Latter's Campaign Statements are a Smoke Screen

Latter’s Campaign Statements are a Smoke Screen

Mr James Latter’s campaign statements are a smoke screen disguising the real James Latter. The real James Latter is the James Latter exposed in these documents and on the videos of the BoE meetings.  

 The Real James Latter should not be re-elected to the RCS CSD Board of Education.

Latter-Hyslop-Brown: The VERY WRONG Choice!


It’s very important that you get the word out to all of your friends, family and neighbors before Mary 21, 2013. Do your part get out the vote and to clean up the RCS district and to put good, competent, and experienced women and men on the RCS board of Education!


If They Truly Want the Best For this School District They’d Withdraw From the Race and Save Face!

The Evil Trio A Campaign Based on Dirty Deceit Backed by Liars and Thugs

The Evil Trio
Latter-Hyslop-Brown

A Campaign Based on Dirty Deceit
Backed by Liars and Thugs

In their published “pamphlet” Fiends of RCS writes:

CANDIDATE’S BRIEF BIOSFiends of RCS got it right when they write Candidate’s bios. You see what Fiends of RCS wrote was the singular, ONE candidate’s bios. That must have been a Freudian slip because if it were a bio for each of three candidates it would have to be candidates’ bios. So it seems that even Fiends of RCS considers the evil trio Latter-Hyslop-Brown to be ONE candidate. Seems right, though, ONE sign, ONE brain, ONE voice. Problem is, this Latter – Hyslop – Brown mutant would have THREE votes. That’s not right! Fiends of RCS is really desperate if this is the best candidate selection they can offer. Pretty slim pickin’s. But one thing is very certain: If Fiends of RCS can’t spell, how can they say that their “candidate” can do anything for education in this district. Trash them all: Latter – Hyslop – Brown!

Latter-Brow-Hyslop

Latter-Hyslop-Brown
NO WAY, Turkies!

 
Latter-Hyslop-Brown and Their
Supporters are Deceiving You to Get Your Votes!

We’d also like to note for our readers that the teachers clique made up of James Latter (husband of Ms Latter, a teacher at the Middle School), Alice Whalen (retired RCS teacher), Howard Engel (Sarah Engel’s husband), Edward “Comatose” Reville (Engel’s brother  in  law), ALL opposed the 2 % budget! The 2 % budget was proposed by Dr Alan McCartney, RCS CSD superintendent, the man that Latter, Whalen, Engel, Reville  and Matt Miller unanimously trashed and opposed. The 2 % budget was approved by the VADNEY, SYLVESTER, Lukens, Krzykowski, Robbins resident  business majority on the board. Now the teachers clique candidates Latter  Hyslop  Brown are now urging residents to vote for the very budget they OPPOSED and are taking credit for it! That’s a slap right in this community’s face because Latter  Hyslop  Brown are running under a slogan “Bring back Respect and Integrity to the RCS Board of Education.” What a joke! Multiple counts of misconduct (Latter), lies and fraud (Brown), ignorance (Hyslop), public disorderly conduct, outbursts and childish behavior by their supporters (Matt Miller and Jerry Deluca), and dissemination of misinformation and outright lies by their supporters (Friends of RCS and the RCS Teachers Association through Matt Miller) hardly speak for their “Respect” and “Integrity”!
In fact, it just proves what we have been saying all along: they’re liars, frauds, hypocrites and thugs!

But Their Bios Are the Real Science Fiction!

[Editor’s Note: To save space, we have extracted the offensive statements from the actual published bios that are easily available in their entirety on line.]

 James Latter—Running for re-election…he is is deeply committed to seeing this community and school thrive.  His wife teaches at the Middle School…earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Syracuse University…has works for Sabic in Selkirk for the past nine years… many great team-building skills in this capacity…he will continue to be a great asset and voice for the students of RCS if re-elected.

 Yes, unfortunately the shameless fool is running for re-election. Some people have no dignity! What we find offensive is that Fiends of RCS paint this guy as if he were Mother Theresa. If he really wants to see this community and school thrive he’d relocate to East Overshoe and become a septic tank, he’s certainly already full enough of shite to qualify. Yes, he’s married to a teacher but please don’t let that reflect negatively on the teacher but that in itself tells you where his loyalties will lie (as always with the teachers clique, the teachers union, Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, the whole corrupt bunch). Yes, he does work for the Saudi Arabian corporation Sabic but he has no team-building skills! Where did Fiends pull that one out of? Don’t they think we attend BoE meetings and watch the videos?!? He’s a speed bump! At least a speed bump has a purpose; he’s useless! Unless of course it’s breaking rules and laws. That’s something Latter’s perfected.

Best Description of James Latter

Best Description of James Latter

As for Latter’s being “a great asset and voice for the students of RCS if re-elected.” that’s the biggest lie ever! If you are willing to swallow that bullshit, you really need to read our exposés of Latter’s concern for parents and students at: James Latter: Why He’s A Very Bad Choice. Our exposé on BoE candidate James Latter reveals the real James Latter. Please read it.

noob

 Jason Hyslop—realized that he would have to get more involved in order to afford his two children the same level of education he received as a student or better…feels that the average parent or community member is not well-represented on the board…hopes that his election will help to this end…works at Sabic in Selkirk… possess[es] skills such as leadership, teamwork, communication, diplomacy and an analytical approach to every problem…commitment and knowledge of this district will be a valuable resource on this board if elected.

 This is an unfortunate example of “stench by association.” Hyslop has made a really bad choice of running mates and party! But the kid, and that’s what he is—mentally and in terms of life experience—, a kid did it to himself, willingly and voluntarily, so there’s no safe harbor for him to hide in. He seems nice enough but his choice of partners and supporters really make him look stupid and untrustworthy. Sorry, kid! You’ll have to eat roadkill on this one!

We’re a bit confused when Hyslop says: he wants ” to afford his two children the same level of education he received as a student or better.” According to Hyslop’s statements at the “meet the candidates” event, Hyslop is a high-school graduate and has 1 year of community college.  That’s not a very high level of education by today’s standards, indeed. In fact, Hyslop doesn’t have to get involved or do a damned thing to give his kids that “level” of education. Conclusion: We don’t need you to attain substandard levels, Mr Hyslop (we’re only just clawing our way out of the pit we were in, thanks to the years under the teachers clique and Betsy Smith’s year of nothing). So what else can you do, Kiddo? (First of all, I’d recommend you get someone else to write your script!)

C'mon, Jason, din-dins!

C’mon, Jason, din-dins!

Hyslop is very, very correct when he openly confesses that “the average parent or community member is not well-represented on the board,” not with four out of nine members (see the boxed text above)  having very close connections with teachers! Hell no! Hyslop’s not only correct he’s scarey correct. And if you put him and Latter and Brown on the board, you’ll have given away the whole show to the special interest groups. They’ll tax-levy you right into a homeless shelter!

Yes, Hyslop, we’re sure that your election will represent an “end” an end to democracy on the RCS board of education; an end to taxpayers’, parents’ and residents’ voices in the education of our children; an end to diversity and dialogue on the RCS board of education. That’s not an “end” any of us want to see!

Mr Hyslop does “work at Sabic in Selkirk,” the same Saudi Arabian company where our little munchkin Latter works. But Hyslop claims he  “possess[es] skills such as leadership, teamwork, communication, diplomacy and an analytical approach to every problem.” But that’s all nice and fuzzy cozy coming from Hyslop and his mentors at Fiends of RCS (Miller and Deluca, Denise Hughes (her husband Scott Hughes and his croney Jeff Sorensen jumped ship and resigned from the RCS BoE when they lost their majority). As for his “commitment and knowledge of this district,” we’re not convinced. Hyslop is an unknown. Hyslop has been misled into running and is being set up. If Hyslop had any sense and any dignity he would have chose to run on his own instead of attaching himself at the hip to two tainted characters, James Latter and Patrick Brown.

Mr Hyslop, if that’s the extent of your leadership.” “teamwork.” “diplomacy,” and “analytical approach” and if that’s the extent of your “knowledge of this district,” we’re very disappointed. In fact, Mr Hyslop, you fall far short of this community’s reasonable expectations in terms of integrity, common sense, truthfulness, and experienceSorry but NO THANKS, Kiddo!

Pat “Paddy” Brown—returned to the RCS District…in 1996…his wife, Mary [Partridge – Brown], are active in the community with the school and various volunteer organizations in the area…is an attorney and…partner of [at?] a law firm in Albany…serves on the Town of Coeymans Zoning Board of…believes we must give our teachers and administrators the resources to succeed and hold them accountable.

Maybe Pat brown did return to the RCS district but he’s never been here, that is, one of us. Seems that his wife, Mary Partridge-Brown, and her close “friendship” with Matt Miller dragged old Paddy into this mess. Problem is old Paddy is all over the place and has so many conflicts that it’s hardly likely that he’ll have any time for the RCS CSD board of education. But then, of course, his wife Mary Partidge-Brown and her close “friend” Matt Miller (and Miller’s close “friend,” Jerry Deluca), will be available to keep old Paddy up-to-snuff and tell him how he’s gotta vote. Right Mary, Matt, Jerry, Paddy.

What’s even scarier is the statement that old Paddy “believes we must give our teachers and administrators the resources to succeed.” I guess that means you can kiss your house and property good-bye, because with shyster Paddy on the board and with his friends whispering in his ear (Matt Miller, Jerry Deluca, the teachers union, and he is close to the Cuomos, unions, big business, etc.) who needs enemies.

Old Paddy has a problem with the truth and has openly and publicly misled or even lied to the community when he made public statements at the A.W. Becker PTA “meet the candidates” event.

Matt Miller, RCS Teachers Association president and NYSUT Teachers Union Rep, and Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca of the Coeymans Police Department, Both Supporters of the Latter-Hyslop-Brown party, Didn’t Do Their Candidates Any Favors
(But, as usual, Matt Miller was an embarrassment to the District and to the teachers of the district.)

Friends of RCS, RCS Teachers Association, and Coeymans Police Rep Embarrass Themselves and Their Orgs at BoE Meeting

(It’s all on the video, which should be available on the RCS BoE website in a day or two.)


UPDATE

May 15, 2013. Another Resident Reports: Miller was yelling at the speaker about the blogger!  He was sitting in the middle of auditorium and I was second row back…I told him if he wanted to speak to the speaker [who was at the podium] show some respect and sign up to make a public statement. I couldn’t hear what Deluca was yelling about.

Editor’s Note: Several reports confirm that Matt Miller is pretty agitated about the blog, especially the fact that his letter to the teachers was published on this blog. It seems that Miller wanted keep it all secret. Of course, fat ass loud-mouth Deluca has to make a scene wherever his massive hulk can fit. Both of these characters, Miller and Deluca, are an embarrassment to this community!

May 14, 2013. A Resident Reports: Tonight’s BOE meeting was a great example of what people need to know. During public comment Suni Swann was yelling out to the board. After meeting Matt Miller and Gerry Deluca had melt down and started yelling and Dr. Alan Mc Cartney had to ask them to take it outside. Fine example these Adults were setting. Respect and Dignity? Wow! Not shown tonight.

Latter-Hyslop-Brown
NO THANKS!

BOE meeting tonight was very well attended tonight. Soon as meeting ended out burst by Matt Miller and Gerry DeLuca were showing that respect was just a word to them. Suni Swann was very rude yelling at public hearing. Dr Alan McMartney had ask then to take it outside. WOW public out burst doesn’t belong in school meeting, I think our students behave better. What an example these adults set.

[Editor’s Note: Matt Miller is the RCS Teachers Association president and NYSUT representative, and Gerald Deluca is a Coeymans police department employee.]


Our exposé of James Latter will be published on this blog on Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Don’t miss it!
