Picnic or Coeymanazi Rally? RCS Friends & More Endorse Their Candidates

RCS Friends and More Plan a Coeymanazi Love Fest to Endorse thier Own Special-Interest Lackeys to Run for Seats on the RCS  Board of Education !

You Will Be When You Learn About These Candidates!

You Will Be When You Learn About These Candidates!
And for very good reasons, too!

[Wednesday, April 24, 2013. Sarah Engel, friendsofrcs@yahoo.com] The Deluca-Dominated and Teachers Union Sympathizer Facebook Group, RCS Friends and More, Has Announced a Political Picnic to Endorse Three Special-Interest Union Sympathizers, Who Are Runing for Seats on Our Board of Education. The group RCS Friends and More has publicly announced their endorsement of James Latter, Peter E. Brown, and Jason Hyslop as candidates for the board. Here’s why you should reject all three.

Fairness Starts with Thinking. Fairness Starts with Truth

Fairness Starts with Thinking.
Fairness Starts with Truth

Anyone who has followed this blog will know that we have consistently raised our opposition to anyone being elected to be a board of education member who is a teacher, a retired teacher, or who is closely related to a teacher. We feel very strongly that such people will find it difficult or impossible to vote impartially on issues that are not supported by the teachers or the teachers union, and will oppose any issue that the teachers or the teachers union opposes. This guarantees a dysfunctional board of education inappropriately influenced by special interests and not by the concerns of the community, residents, parents, and taxpayers at large. That’s UNFAIR.

Think of it this way: We don’t allow family members or friends of the accused on a jury deciding the case, do we? Why would that be?

We have also consistently said that if the teachers or the teachers union has anything to say that might sway the board of education vote, it can be said like any other interested resident or parent or taxpayer from the speakers podium during public comment. That’s Fair.

In addition, if the board of education needs or wants the specific input of the teachers or a teacher, the board can request that a teacher to attend ex officio, that is without voting rights, at board meetings or be called in on an advisory capacity to provide the teachers'(not the unions!) perspective on an issue. That’s fair.

Those are all very sensible and practical ways of avoiding the obstacles we have experienced over the past several years when the RCS board of education has had teachers, retired teachers, spouses of teachers, close relatives of teachers march in lockstep and vote as a group rather than individually. This is very detrimental to the board’s effectiveness. That’s UNFAIR.

But what can you expect from them? They’re only human. They would feel like traitors if they voted against a family member or their friends and colleagues. It’s only natural! I, you would, too, if you were asked to vote against your wife or co-worker.

So, that having been said, let’s look at the candidates supported by the RCS Friends and More Facebook group, who are putting their candidates on exhibit at a “public” picnic at Hendrik Hudson Park on Saturday, April 27.

First of all, we should mention that the RCS Friends and More is a Facebook group that is dominated by “Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca (of board of education misinformation and Coeymanazi infamy) and Cathy Deluca (of Ravena Health and Fitness Club infamy) and the group around the Delucas. What this means is that the RCS Friends and More is dominated by a very nasty and questionable group, even though it may include some very fine people. We advise caution if you’re considering getting involved with the group. They don’t have a very good reputation for tolerance or neighborliness. That’s UNFAIR.

You know what to expect because the RCS Friends and More group have already identified the picnic as a political event when they write in their announcement:

We are pleased to endorse all three candidates who are highly skilled and competent to serve on the RCS Board of Education.

And you already know it’s going to be a love-fest of propaganda and wolves-in-sheep’s clothing circulating among the visitors. Here’s what they write in their announcement:

These candidates are committed to ensuring that the students of RCS receive a quality education at a reasonable cost to the community and taxpayers…and intend to run on a platform of returning respect, quality, and integrity to the RCS School District.

Well, apart from being extremely vague and ambiguous, it doesn’t tell us very much that anyone really can get their teeth into, and is only commonsense that we would expect such attitudes in the candidates. Isn’t it? Again, the candidates are telling us WHAT they are going to do…so far no one’s ASKED us.

And let’s not forget that this is the same group that behaved generally uncivilly and disrespectfully at board meetings like a bunch of cattle, shouting, standing on chairs, shouting across the aisles, pointing fingers from the speakers podium, whining, complaining, accusing, etc. etc., and making a spectacle of themselves. It’s the same bunch that got the RCS CSD into a pickle with their behavior at the polling places and their nasty campaign tactics that got the district investigated.  And now we’re supposed to believe they’ve made a 180 degree change. Why should we believe anything’s changed? It’s still the same group and the leopard can’t change its spots!

Well, the truth is that they are full of turd matter. The bunch that makes up the RCS Friends and More group—or at least the ones who dominate the group—are the very ones who mislead you regarding the 2% tax levy and were pushing for a 3.5% tax levy! “Reasonable cost?” One of the group’s leaders, Jerry Deluca, confused tax rate with tax levy in his public statements, and his wife, Cathy Deluca, another leader of the group, came out with a public statement correcting him! No facts, just loads of a hot air from balloon-shaped people. One of the group’s leaders, Jerry Deluca, again, in a public statement, admitted he know how people were voting—votes are supposed to be secret, aren’t they? And these are the people endorsing Latter, Brown, and Hyslop. Forget about it!

Calling It What It Is!

Calling It What It Is!

So, let’s look at their candidates whom you’ll have an opportunity to meet at the so-called “picnic” a picnic that will probably be a surveillance operation and a precious propaganda moment for most of the group’s leaders. The picnic is going to be a Coeymanazi pep rally.

The Best Place for James Latter

The Best Place for
James Latter

latterWe’ll start with James Latter, who  is an employee of the Saudi Arabian company, Sabic (as is Jason Hyslop). Latter, who is a current board member, and who has been highly visible to most of us as a whiner and a someone who just simply can’t get his facts right. He’s been caught with his pants around his ankles so many times we don’t have space to list them here. But you will recall his multiple scandals last year, his recent repeated “I don’t like the budget” at the special budget meeting (but he never gave any reasons Why? he didn’t like the budget). His insistance on voting on a grant issue without the board having had the time to read the lengthy application. And the list goes on. His sole function on the board is to oppose the other side and to vote like a robot with the teachers union. This is a useless pile of flesh on the board and he needs to spend his time at Weight Watchers, not on a board of education.

Peter E. Brown

Peter E. Brown

Peter E. Brown. We won’t waste space on this shady character. To be entirely honest, Brown’s wife, Mary Partridge-Brown, does some good in the community: she helps out at the high-school library, she does book drives, etc. To deny that she does good things would be just dishonest. It’s not what she does in the open but what she does behind the scenes that bothers us. She recently announced her husband’s candidacy on Facebook without even giving his name. He’s a lawyer (one attorney, the school-district attorney, is enough on one board of education). Mary Partridge-Brown is very close to Matt-the-Mutt Miller, who is the teachers union (NYSUT) dog in the district. Peter E. Brown is discussed at length in our article about Brown (click on the link below).

As far as we know, Peter E. Brown has never attended a board of education meeting. As far as we know, Peter E Brown has never addressed the board of education in public comment. Now he wants your vote. This is a candidate to avoid at all costs.

Jason Hyslop is a relative nobody. But what is clear is that he is (1) a member of the RCS Friends and More clique, (2) he is friends with James Latter (they both work at the Saudi Arabian company Sabic and they’re both endorsed by RCS Friends). That in itself labels him quite nicely.

Jason Hysop

Jason Hysop

Hyslop is right on one count though: The average parent and community member is not well represented on the current board. The present board has one retired teacher, Alice Whalen, who continues activity in the schools; one active teacher, Howard “Bray” Engel who is married to a teacher Sarah Engel; two members are closely related to teachers, James Latter is married to a teacher and Edward “Teddy” Reville (he’s married to Howard Engel’s sister). No! The average parent and taxpayer is not sufficiently represented on the present board: there are simply 4 too many members who are or have very close relations with teachers and the teachers union, that is, Matt-the-Mutt Miller and NYSUT. In other words, almost half of the RCS board of education is representing a special interest group. That’s not right! Mr Hyslop’s own statement:

It quickly became clear that the average parent and community member was not represented on the current board. It is my opinion that this representation is crucial to have a more well-rounded and diverse board and, ultimately, a better foundation for our children’s education.

Jason Hyslop

Jason Hyslop

We agree with you Mr Hyslop! And, in view of your endorsement by the Deluca-dominated RCS Friends and More, and your connections with James Latter and Sabic, we don’t think that you are the man who will make the board any more representative of the community. In fact, we think you’ll have a negative effect on the board.

We recommend that RCS residents and voters avoid Mr Hyslop because of his inconsistency and his questionable relationships.

What You See versus What You Get

What You See versus What You Get

We hope it’s clearer now that the candidates being endorsed by the Deluca – dominated and teachers union sympathizer group calling themselves RCS Friends and More are candidates that will be sockpuppets for the special interests of the teachers and the teachers union. These candidates, James Latter, Peter E. Brown, and Jason Hyslop, have already branded themselves by their relationships and the endorsement by RCS Friends and More. They are candidates that will not adequately balance the board and will not represent the average parent and community member on the board. We know that from past experience.

Friends, the Delucas, Latter, Brown, Hyslop, Partridge-Brown, Miller, the Engels, Whalen are all in bed together.>/big>

The “Friends”, the Delucas, Latter, Brown, Hyslop, Partridge-Brown, Miller, the Engels, Whalen are all in bed together. It’s a real cozy bunch.

We’ve been fortunate in past months, since the last budget vote, the last board of education elections, and the hiring of a professional administrator, Dr Alan R. McCartney, and we have been able to experience the difference that a board majority that truly represents the average parent and community member can make a difference. Jeff Lukens, Mike Robbins (vice – president), Judy Sylvester, Rodney Krzykowski and John Vadney (president) are not teachers, they are truly representatives of the average parent and the average community member. They have done great things over the past year and, if we put other non – special interest people on the board—not the likes of candidates endorsed by RCS Friends and More—, we can watch this district SOAR. That’s FAIR!

Bullshit Stops Here

Bullshit Stops Here

But PLEASE! Don’t let us discourage you! Please attend the Coeymanazi rally and  picnic the 1st Annual Friends of RCS Picnic is this Saturday (April 27) from 3-6 p.m.  at the Henry Hudson Park Pavilion. You’ll meet the clique, the candidates, probably get your mugshot on Jerry Deluca’s cell phone, maybe even get your name in the official Coeymanazi gazette, the Ravena News Herald. If it’s a nice day it may be an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, just don’t stand downwind of the piles of bullshit that will be walking around!

Open Letter to Interim Superintendent McCartney

 בס”ד

Welcome, Mr Superintendent, to the Troubled and Dysfunctional Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk School District!

Dear Dr McCartney:

We welcome you with open arms, although you’ll find most hearts and minds (what few functioning ones there are) in this district closed to anything new or positive, which might threaten the chronic stagnation here, and we would like to take this opportunity to offer some well-intentioned advice and provide some caveats.

Let Him or Her…Cast the First Stone … (John 8:7)

You All Behaved Like Animals, Like A Lynch Mob, Including Partisan BoE Members Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and Edward Reville, When Attacking the Board’s Majority Decision to Hire Mr Alan McCartney as the New Interim Superintendent.

As Long As It Goes Your Way.)

If You Live in a Glass House…

So Many of You Called Him Immoral, Unethical, etc. But I Know of Many of Your Own Personal Histories And You Live in Glass Houses and Shouldn’t Be Casting Stones.

Some of the gals shouting the loudest have some pretty unsavory pasts, so before you speak and before I let the pussy out of the bag, you’d better think about what you say. There are plenty of guys with stories about you (I just may be one of them).

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk [Very Personal] Musings

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this page NOW or get your parent to supervise your visit!

This Is Going to be a Plainer Posting than You’re Used To. The Reason May Be the Lackluster Subject or Because the Individuals Simply Defy Description, They’re So Bizarre and Scary.

This one’s for you, Cupcake!

They’re the Coeymanazis, the Women and Eunuchs of
Cathy Deluca’s Coeymanazi Cupcake Club a.k.a.
“Save the Arts at RCS”
(the Arts of Deception and Hypocrisy) and
“RCS Sports Association”
(Where Anything or Anyone is ‘Fair Game’!)

Whalen offers toxic apples!

RCS Board of Education Teachers Clique Deceit: And as for Alice Whalen’s big mouth: Alice, for all you have to say, didn’t YOU review all of the applications submitted for the business manager (you were all confusing the numbers at the meeting)? So wouldn’t you have also had the opportunity to have reviewed the applications for interim superintendent, too? If so, did you? That’s not what we heard from you, Alice. And unless the RCS board of education website is not up-to-date, Jeff Luckens chairs the personnel committee, and Howard Engel and Edward Reville are the other two members. So what’s the beef, people, you’re all bitching about the selection but YOU run the committee, Engel, Reville must have reviewed the applications or should have, and Whalen could have reviewed all of the applications! So SHUT UP you deceitful dregs!

Hubby Opens His Fat Mouth…She Has to Apologize!

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

One of Our readers Who has Requested Anonymity has Provided Us with a Copy of an Exchange Ignited by Jerry Deluca’s Poor Choice of Words On One of Those Secret Club-Members-Only FaceBook-type Social Media Sites…And Jerry’s Backup, Cathy Deluca, Had to Come Up Real Quick with a Humble Apology.

Dirty-Hand Jerry Steps in it Again
Wotz That Smell, Jerry?

Of course, we don’t have access to the RCS Friends and More* site’s contents, and we’d probably be banned if the administrators knew we were reading it, too, but we do have some people who are keeping an eye out for the community and who sometimes send us some tidbits of interest. We thought you’d like to hear what your neighbors are talking about…

As we predicted, the Coeymanazis and their ringleaders are taking some well-earned flack. The Delucas are finding out that the community is sick and tired of their nastiness and their constant bellyaching, and the community is starting to talk back!

It seems Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was not at all pleased with the re-election of John M. Vadney to be president of the RCS board of education, a real vote of confidence by the RCS community and the board itself, and was just as unhappy when Mike Robbins was elected to be vice-president. (It should be noted that a member of the teachers clique and Deluca pet, James Latter, a guy with a really unsavory history, was nominated to be president, LOST, and then was nominated to be vice-president, and LOST again! And you wonder why we baptized the Deluca gang The Losers Club“?)

Deluca left the meeting fuming when his pet, Matt “the Mutt” Miller got the boot! So what does Dirty-Hands Jerry do? He tries to smear the newest member, Judy Sylvester! Well, no-one was going to put up with that!

Read the comments and then read Deluca’s apology! (Editor’s Note: We’ve changed the names of the commentors to prevent retaliation by the Coeymanazis.)

“Dirty Hands Jerry” DeLuca may not have had his usual Coeymanazi backup at the July 10th board of education meeting but that didn’t keep him from sowing the sour grapes through a local gossip page on the Internet. Old “Dirty-Hands Jerry” writes:

I went to the Board meeting tonight in the hopes that The candidate who said she was an independent voice would use this opportunity to start to move RCS fowward. It was clear tonight that Mrs. Sylvester is totally alligned with the faction that continues to Bully and bring this district down. Fisrt she voted to relect Mr. Vadney as President and then voted to elect Mr. Robbins as VP. The coup de grace though came when she voted to oust Matt Miller from his post as director of energy conservation. The gang has it in for Matt and will do whatever it takes to punish him. Matt has saved the district a lot of money, but because they do not like that he stands up to their bullying they are trying to punish him. Our community is clearly a good community and good school district, we deserve real leadership. Do the right thing Judy.

Nice goin’, Jerry!
Can you get the other one in, too?

Matt Miller: Pet Weasel

Judy Sylvester did the right thing, Jerry! Of course, it wasn’t anything you would have done…it was the right thing, and Ms Sylvester has the full support of the community, too! But we really have to hand it to you, Dirty-Hands, in that remarkably small space you managed to bad-mouth just about everyone on the citizens/residents side of the board; 3 out of 5! It was no surprise, of course, that you spared the teachers clique and your pet weasel, Matt “the Mutt” Miller.  How do you manage? Well, you’ve had a lot of practice, haven’t you.

R.J. D’Esposito: The Fly on the Wall.

Well,  according to another of our sources, “Dirty Hands Jerry” was at the board meeting earlier in the evening when voting for officers was taking place and he stormed out when he heard the results. Neither Dirty-Hands Jerry or his partner Cathy Long-Deluca were  at regular meeting but their fly-on-the wall R.J. D’Esposito was sucking up everything. We’ll believe their sincerity and change of heart when their lackey whore journalist at the TU prints apologies to BoE!

R.J. D’Esposito

Little  Deluca pet R.J. D’Esposito appears to need a life! Or does he actually have one but spends it texting on the RCS Friends and More FaceBook site, that is, when he’s not heeling to Jerry Deluca or doing the almost-but-not-quite-famous RJ-staredown at the BoE meetings? Does he take off the dog collar when Jerry lets him out?

Whatever! This little muskrat has earned himself a real place among the girls on the gossip sites…not many of the local guys can make that claim to fame, RJ. Lucky you! Keep it up, muskrat… (Betcha like gladiator movies, too. Doncha?)

We get a real feel for the anti-Deluca sentiments and the growing support for the board of education from the community in some of the comments made by residents in response to Deluca’s usual whining and hate-mongering:

TA writes:

This kind of small-mindedness is maddening! Holding people accountable is now bullying?? What ‘gang’ are you referencing?? [redacted personal information] Who are the members?? Aren’t you some sort of detective?? Throwing around the words….gang?? So, because Judy voted along the same lines of some board members that you obviously don’t like, she is now a member of a GANG???? She no longer has an independent voice??? Oh my goodness, with thinking like that…what are you doing dealing with our community members and police force??? WOW…..

TA responds  to a Deluca/Miller supporter, Melissa Ashby:

 I didn’t see where Mr. DeLuca stated anything at all about his children. I did see where (see above!) he attempts to characterize Judy Sylvester as being “aligned with” and “a member of the gang” that is attempting to bully our district. All because she voted YES or NO and other board members voted the same YES or NO. Mr. Miller may be a stand up guy but that doesn’t mean the RCS district needs to pay someone $10,000 a year in addition to their salary to be the Energy Manager. The majority of the Board voted to end that. It’s about time some tough decisions are made in this district. We are one of a few of the only schools IN THE NATION to have relatively no cuts in these economic times.

TA continues:

Oh…and what is the “right thing” you are asking Judy to do, Mr. DeLuca? Vote how you would vote?? That really gives her an independent voice, doesn’t it?

TA and then responds to Melissa Ashby (a member of the Deluca camp?):

And yes, [Melissa], I do have a child. He’s grown now, a smart, independent young man, college grad and member of the United States Navy. I’m a very proud mom!

BRAVO! TA and congratulations on having parented a fine young American!

Another commentor, SP, then  joins the conversation:

A[redacted], you’re so right! Not one thing was about the kids…..only about the board and Matt Miller….[Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]

SP continues: As for time even I don`t get on her mobile when I am out. This is the last thing I think of doing! LOL
 
CPE writes:

ENOUGH, all of you. Enough is enough. I was not brought up in this school district and I do not know all of you as well as the rest of you obviously do, however I have to agree with the individual who stated that the RCS School District is the laughing stock of the capital district, and I might add that it may be the rest of the state. When I receive newspaper clippings from my home town some 150 miles away from here telling all of those people there that RCS didn’t receive extra grant money because we don’t have the right senators or congressman representing us then the problem is much greater than the minor squabbles that are going on here. You are all beginning to sound like and act, (from the stories I am hearing) like high school girls merely gossiping amongst themselves. Do we need change, I don’t know. What I do know is that if we have thugs on the school board who are trying to manipulate and bully the other members to vote the way they want, then shame on them, and shame on the other members who don’t have the backbone to stand up for themselves. If people have to go then get rid of them, if we need to bring in an independant investigator to look into this supposed voter fraud then do it. I’m sure that nobody on the board would have a problem with that, what with all of them being the upstanding honest citizens that they are supposed to be.  Start there with your witch hunt, and see who voices the loudest opposition and you just might find out who the rotten apple really is.

 MS writes:

I’m sorry but did I hear correctly, that there was more votes than signatures in the registration books? The $64,000 question, how many votes difference? One? Five? Two hundred? How many? Way bigger news than who failed to overthrow the current administration of the BOE. Now THAT warrants an investigation by the authorities, and I KNOW that the LOCAL authorities will recuse themselves from any possible criminal investigation of voter fraud….. RIG. As far as the re-election of officers goes, lets clarify the job duties and titles of the board of Education members. They are representatives that are elected by the residents of the said district, Sorry, that are preferably alive, are supposed to fiscally mindful of the tax dollars collected in the said district and see that those collected tax dollars are spent in a manner that is the most responsible for the Education of the children in the district. This does not mean that the board members are to be “bullied” by the administrators, teachers union, past and present teachers/residents, employees of the district or family members of ANY school district past or present employees.
Please stop with the wrapping of the shroud of “its for the children” why everyone should continuue to vote for cost gouging budgets when people are just trying to buy food “for the chidren

TA replies:

I think it was 48 but I’m not definite on that. And yes, it would be nice if the Board was allowed to operate without a few certain members of our community creating chaos all the time. We have recently had news of our Town and Village Of… [Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]
 
SP voices his opinion of the Delucas:

The disgrace is you and your wife [referring to the Deluca pair] that want to control the school from the cheap seats. The taxpayers voted her [referring to Judy Sylvester] in, not you and your wife [Editor’s Note: OUCH!]………the school is in trouble, or we would not qualify for over 300,000 dollars for the middle school…….don`t you think you should get in behind the board and not try to add discord in the school district….Is this the way you act as a detective? If it is God help us!

Cathy DeLuca responds:

Everyone (even a police investigator) is free to express thier opinion and’exchange ideas on this page. It’s very sad that you seem to think we are having such a negative effect on the school district. Aside from expressing an opinion, I’m curious to know what you think we are doing to “control from the cheap seats”. I believe it is important to listen to constructive criticism as long as it’s done respectfully. I am NOT trying to provoke you in any way.

TA reponds:

I agree, [name redacted]. It appears that Mr. DeLuca thinks that Judy doesn’t have an independent voice. Why? Because she voted Yes or No at a Board meeting whereby the likes of Mr. Vadney (gasp!), Mr. Robbins (oh dear!), etc voted the same Yes or No. Anyone who knows Judy knows that she is no shrinking violet. She didn’t run for the Board to join a team. She very definitely has her own thoughts and voice. Perhaps this should be YOUR wake-up call, Mr. DeLuca. Could it possibly be that it made sense to her to vote that way?? Apparently, according to you, that couldn’t be possible. RIDICULOUS!! What next!!??

SP:

Mrs. DeLuca that was not opinion it was a statement….by a policeman that his salary is payed for by tax payers…….

Cathy DeLuca responds to the outrage expressed by a number of subscribers to the FaceBook posting by her dear hubby, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and [falsely] humbly writes:

Hello Everyone, First of all I want to thank Ashley Anne Irwin, Karen Countryman and Elsie Proper Croteau for making me re-evaluate my own words and actions on this page. Ashley is correct, a long time friend of mine, Mr. Daniel Gonyea, is the creator of this page and it was intented to be a positive thing for our school and community. Dan gave me the privilage to be an administrator on the page and I have not held true to his original intention, however I WILL from here on out respect and honor his original intention. My apologies Dan. Jerry and I have discussed the current situation at great length and have agreed that neither of us will engage in negative banter any longer. Therefore, I am taking down Jerrys comment from last night. Ladies you are correct, thank you.
Unfortunately, I believe the use of social media has become a double edged sword. Although, we are able to more freely exchange ideas and opinions, we all have a tendency to choose our words with less caution than if we were speaking to someone face to face.

Yeah, Cathy, “social media has become a double-edged sword” and you and chubby chubby-chaser  hubby just cut your own throats with it! Sure, it’s tough controlling yourself when you’ve always felt you could hide behind members-only groups and say what you liked…when, really, have you ever speak to anyone respectfully, much less face-to-face? It’s tough when no one wants to talk to you anymore or when they cross the street to avoid you. And worse still, when dear hubby can’t keep his fat mouth shut, you have to come up with a groveling apology! Nice work, Jerry! Your home life must be getting real cozy about now! Now where’d you put that pet rat?

Nobody’s Listening, Deluca!
