Mayor of Ravena

Laszlo Polyak Running for Ravena Village Justice, as Write-in

Ravena voters have the chance on March 15 to finish cleaning up Ravena village hall and sweeping out the last bits of garbage left after Ravena voters gave mummy mayor John Bruno the boot. On March 15 Ravena voters can put Nancy Warner and her corrupt hubby, Harold “Hal” Warner, at the curbside for pick-up by County Waste, and complete the Village Hall Clean-up started two years ago.

Vote Laszlo Polyak, Village Justice, Write-in Candidate!

It’s official: Laszlo Polyak, a familiar resident advocate for fairness and protecting RCS kids, is running for the office of Ravena village justice on March 15. It’s been kept hush-hush til now because Laszlo’s supporters wanted to avoid the vile tactics so well-known in local elections in RCS and the lies and ambush methods so well-known in the Warner circle of fiends. Laszlo’s supporters’ stealth tactics should pay off because Nasty-Nancy and Hooligan-Hal and their mob won’t have much time to lauch their mud-slinging and filth.

The Warners, the husband and wife pair, have been haunting village hall at both ends of local government: the village hall office and the village court, where they have been able to intimidate and mess with residents and even outsiders in the court, to serve and protect their friends and supporters. This corruption has to stop and Ravena village voters will have the chance on March 15th to get rid of both of them in one election.

Don’t forget how Nancy Warner conspired with the Delucas (Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry) and John Bruno to harass Ravena teenagers and violate their civil rights; how hard Nancy and her mob worked to kill the Teen Activities Center; how Nancy Warner and her mob spent $40,000 of Ravena taxpayer money to buy Bob Fisk’s scrap metal fitness equipment; how Nancy Warner and her mob kept her bosom buddy Cathy Deluca in a job at the cost of more than $100,000 a year of Ravena taxpayer dollars, and Cathy Deluca managed a third fitness center into failure! All at Ravena taxpayer expense. Only Nancy Warner’s friends get taxpayer dollars.

And do we have to remind our readers and Ravena voters of the fact that it was Nancy Warner who wanted the RCS Community Library out of their space in the village hall building so that Cathy Deluca’s fitness center could move in? Have you forgotten how hard Nancy Warner and her mob worked to EVICT the library. Have you forgotten that Nancy Warner and her mob raised the library’s rent by more than $700 while they were waiting for Persico to finish the new library? By the way, by increasing the library’s rent by an additional $700 Warner and her mob was eating up the library’s budget and punishing the community. Is that the kind of local government you want to keep?

And lets not forget Hal Warner’s special brand of justice: retaliative justice. He uses his corrupt version of justice to take personal revenge. Let’s not forget the Warners daughter, Carmen Warner, who was disgraced when she was fired from P. David Soares’, Albany County District Attorney, for posting indecent pictures of herself and her girlfriend on Facebook. If Carmen Warner is any indication of her parents’ character and morality, we’re all cooked! So make the right decision on March 15, and put Nasty-Nancy and Hoodlum-Hal back on the street. (Nancy Warner is actually Nancy Biscone-Warner, so it was no surprise that Carmen was later hired by the Biscone law firm. Surprised?) Now old Hal is harassing the assistant district attorney to punish Soares. Is that what we need our court for? To exact private vengence? To pursue private vendettas?

On March 15th
Vote Dan Baker for Village Trustee
Vote Laszlo Polyak (Write-in) for Village Justice

spring-cleaningYou don’t have a choice with Bill Bailey, since both parties are using him as a pawn to prevent anyone with a real brain from running for village trustee. But he’s useless even if his party has a majority. We recommend casting your vote for useless Babbling-Bill, because it’s the safest one to cast for the second trustee seat.

Here are our recommendations for March 15th:
DAN BAKER
LASZLO POLYAK (write-in, see below for instructions)
William Bailey (by default)

Please see below for instructions on how to vote for LASZLO POLYAK as a write-in. It’s very important you do this right and make sure you spell his name correctly when writing it in. The Warner mob will use any excuse to disqualify your vote. It’s been done in the past.

write in laszlo polyak

 

Editor’s Note:  It will be interesting to see what Nancy Warner’s reaction will be when her husband is given his walking papers and Ravena finally has a real justice court. Our guess is that her first move will be to take steps to abolish the village court, just out of her characteristic nastiness, just to make certain no one else can preside. Let’s just wait and see.

So, Friends and Neighbors, do the right thing on March 15th, and finish cleaning up Ravena village hall. Give Nasty-Nancy and Hooligan-Hal their walking papers. Let’s give Ravena some fresh healthy air in Ravena village hall. The stench of corruption has been in Ravena village hall long enough!

Finish the clean-up, Ravena. Give the Warner's the boot! The Editor

Finish the clean-up, Ravena. Give the Warner’s the boot!

Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves

You know, town of Coeymans residents are like the stripper who bares it all at a biker convention and then complains that she’s been sexually harassed. First of all, the majority of you eligible voters don’t vote! Second of all the voting irregularities and fixing in the town of Coeymans, including the manipulation of candidates, seem to go unnoticed but what would you expect in Albany county, the very heartland of corruption! And then there are the Coeymans voters who take every opportunity to do what’s right and f**k it up. When all is said and done, after totally abusing yourselves and making absolute corndogs of yourselves, you bitch about what’s going on in the town of Coeymans. WTF!!!

Last November you elected a bunch of dipshits for positions in the Albany County legislature (Dick Touchette) and on the Coeymans town board (Crandall, Youmans, Dolan) and no one raised a finger to question how a bunch of former rejects and disgraced public figures could be re-elected to public office! So you swore in the sorry bunch of moral cripples and captains of corruption in January. We just sat back and kept quiet, giving them enough time…and rope…to trip themselves up. And Guess what? The waiting paid off with dividends!

ambush

It didn’t take much time for the corrupt Crandallite board to ambushed Mr Carver Laraway with the help of Coeymans code enforcement.

Same old bullshit and the same names are involved. It’s common knowledge that Crandall and his mob have no love for Laraway and it was only a matter of time before the rats attacked.

There seems to be a pattern in this sort of Coeymans conspiracy: You hand out permits, get someone to rely on the paperwork, and then you go behind their backs and get the State of New York, either the Department of Labor or the DEC to do your dirty work for you.

Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive

No sooner did the Crandalite mobsters on the Coeymans town board fire Laverne “Larry” Conrad from the position of Coeymans code enforcement officer, which he has held for years, and throughout the entire period he managed to play dirty with whom members of the Coemanazi insiders club had an axe to grind. Conrad managed to get off scot free by burying creeks on Camille Drive but the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation didn’t have much to say about that; seems there was some political wheeling and dealing going on there. But Larry Conrad, sneaky sockpuppet that he was and still is, issued permits to a local business and then went behind their backs to notify the DEC of some sort of cooked up non-compliance. That’s how they work in Coeymans; sneaky ambush.

Wouldn’t you think that when the town of Coeymans issues a permit, it would have all the facts? Just ask Larry Conrad about issuing permits and then screwing the permit holder. So they hire John Cashin, a New Baltimoron, who issues permits and then all of a sudden the Department of Labor shuts down the permit holder. See a pattern here, anyone?

Well, according to an article appearing in the Times Useless on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, “State shuts down Coeymans demolition. Coeymans supervisor says asbestos abatement an issue,” current Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin, is playing the same games as Larry Conrad did. This time the victim is Carver Laraway and Larry Conrad, who was hired by Laraway. Here’s what the Times Useless has to say:

shoot-self-in-foot“The state Labor Department on Tuesday ordered Port of Coeymans owner Carver Laraway to stop work on a blighted house he is knocking down on Main Street.

“Coeymans code enforcement officer John Cashin said a representative from the state told him that Carver Construction is not on a list of certified demolition contractors. Supervisor Philip Crandall said the concern has to do with proper asbestos abatement and disposal at the 84 Main St. site, a dilapidated house squeezed between two other buildings.

“The house was already knocked down and the pile of rubble is still at the site.

“A state-issued “notice of violation and order to comply” was left at the site.

Larry Conrad, the town’s former building inspector who now does contract work for Laraway, responded on Laraway’s behalf Tuesday, saying the town still owns the property and that “generally speaking blighted buildings underneath municipalities usually don’t have to go through any of the paperwork. However, there seems to be some questions over how that was handled, I guess, improperly or whatever.”

“Crandall said he consulted David Wukitsch, the town’s attorney, who said Laraway owns the property.”

John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

Stool pigeon? Snitch? Rat? John Cashin getting cozy with the New York State Department of Labor

So now we have permit-finagling Larry Conrad on contract to Carver Laraway in return for past favors but Larry Conrad is just as ignorant now as he was before! Carver Laraway is just as stupid as Coeymans residents because he hired Coeymans refuse, the discarded former code enforcement officer, Larry Conrad. Now, with Conrad misadvising him or bullshitting him —because that’s what Conrad does best; if you got no brains you gotta use bullshit— and the corrupt local town hall with its snitch in code enforcement, Coeymans lives up to its name Reubenville… Oops! Coeymanaziville.

It’s a well-known fact that Crandall and his cronies, including Rick ” the Dick” Touchette, who was recently elected to the Albany county legislature by local dumbasses, have a vendetta against Carver Laraway. That’s likely one of the reasons they got rid of Larry Conrad, a Carver Laraway supporter. Well, it’s obvious he was cozy with Carver Laraway because no sooner was Conrad terminated from his position with the town of Coeymans than he was hired by Laraway. That wouldn’t be because of some favors that might have been done and cashed in, would it? After all, Carver Laraway and his companies did get some good deals from the town of Coeymans in the past couple of years. But that’s not to say that Carver Laraway and the Carver Companies haven’t done for the town of Coeymans what generations of crooked elected officials have failed to do. At least Carver Laraway —despite the efforts of the likes of Phil Crandall, Tom Dolan, Rick “the Dick” Touchette and thier lackeys— has tried to build up and clean up the dump we know as Coeymans!

Several questions and concerns arise from this incident. —Now that’s apart from the Albany Times Union’s typical indifference to the truth of the facts it prints and the creative writing skills of its staff fiction writers.— First of all, there seems to be a question of who owns the building that was demolished! The fact is that Carver Laraway’s teams were working at the scene for three days, stopping traffic, and partially closing down Main Street in Coeymans hamlet. How can it be that town officials didn’t notice that the crews were tearing down a building and stopping traffic on Main St/River Road? And do you think Carver Laraway would be tearing down a building that he didn’t own?!? Carver Laraway is in the construction/demolition business and has been for years; he’s made millions doing what he does. Do you think for a minute that he’s dumb enough to forget to comply with regulations? Maybe he’s dumb enough to have trusted Coeymans town hall to do things honestly and straightforward, like issuing permits and doing that properly? Yeah, that’s pretty dumb.

Then there’s the question of Why? it took Coeymanazi town supervisor, Phil Crandall, and his New Baltimoron code enforcement officer, John Cashin, three days to note the building was being demolished? And why did Coeymanazi town supervisor Phil Crandall have to consult the town’s scheister lawyer, David Wukitsch, who was fired from his position as New Baltimore town attorney, as to who owned the building?!? And do you think for a minute that the New York State Department of Labor is keeping tabs on what’s going on in Coeymans hamlet, that someone might be demolishing a derelict eyesore property? That is, without the help of a local stool pigeonwith an agenda? Yes, like Larry Conrad was with previous administrations, there’s another rat in town hall who takes orders and does the backstabbing for the crooks at the top. Nothing’s changed in Coeymans.

And another question: Doesn’t the town of Coeymans issue demolition permits? If a demolition permit was issued, wouldn’t the town have to verify ownership? Verify safety precautions? Verify compliance with laws, regulations, codes connected with tearing down buildings and disposing of the rubble? There are a lot of unanswered questions here and most of them point to the corruption of local elected officials, the Crandallites, the Youmansites, the Dolanites and the New Baltimoron lackeys like Cashin! Listen up, Coeymans, these are the jerks you elected to take care of your town! They promised to make your interests a priority! They’re screwing you and you love it!!!!

take it up the ass

All things said and done, you have to admit that the town of Coeymans, especially the hamlet of Coeymans, is a garbage dump, and Carver Laraway has been the only one with the cash and the interest in cleaning it up. But that’s not good enough for The Corrupt Crandallites, Yanker Youmansites, Dumbass Dolanites, and Turkey Touchettites. Crandall and his mob, with their sockpuppet Cashin, don’t give a rat’s ass for cleaning up Coeymans; they have their own agendas and they started with firing Carver Laraway supporter Larry Conrad, installing John Cashin, an import from New Baltimore and the corrupt Susan O’Rorke mob who wasted New Baltimore Town Hall before Nick Dellisanti ousted her and her mob. Cashin was O’Rorke’s live-in partner, some say they were married, some say not. Who cares? All you can say with some reliability is that birds of a feather, in this case vultures, flock together.

So now maybe Carver Laraway will pull out the big guns and blow the Crandall Coeymanazis out of the water.

We’ll have more to say about Laverne Conrad’s mischief while code enforcement officer and the damage he did but for now, let’s just concentrate on watching the crooks, conspirators and corruption specialists, Crandall, Youmans, and Dolan, and see what their next stupidity is going to be.

You asked for it, Coeymans, you put the Corrupt Crandallites, the Yanker Youmanites, the Dumbass Dolanites, and the Turkey Touchettites in town hall; they put the New Baltimoron John Cashin where they can use him best against Carver Laraway, just like former town crook Larry Conrad used his position to benefit his cronies.

You may change the faces in Coeymans town hall but nothing else; you’re all still a bunch of pitiful retards and deserve everything Crandall and his mob have in store for you. We told you so but you had to shoot yourselves in the foot. Good for you, Coeymans!

Coeymans Dump

Coeymans eyesore that Carver Laraway demolished and was cleaning up, until Crandall and his mob put a stop to it.

We really want to see what the Johnson Newspaper Group and the Ravena News Herald do with this story. Is it going to be the same old rag rubbish they usually print as the official Ravena-Coeymans information prostitutes, or will they actually do some real reporting and investigate and report the true facts. Don’t hang waiting but do live in hope!

Stay tuned! You know that dentist who runs that ugly banner add every week in the Johnson Newspaper Group rags, especially in the Ravena News Herald? The Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich? Well, they offer a scam 15% discount for seniors and veterans. Well, here’s the real story: When you charge up to 3-times (that’s 300%) more than the local competition you can well afford to advertise that you offer a 15% discount if that draws the suckers in. But we have information that Coxsackie Dental Arts and Kurt Froehlich are under investigation for alleged insurance fraud for fraudulent billing practices and for professional misconduct. The story is coming up on this blog very soon, so if you plan to have any dental work done, you may want to read our exposé first. Stay tuned!

It never ceases to amaze us how Ravena and Coeymans seem to wallow in their own sewerage — sometimes literally — when it comes to putting local wannabes and losers on the election ballots. This time around, though, the town of Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers. What is wrong with Coeymans? Why is it Coeymans can’t find anyone to run without a laundry list of unlawful conduct, corrupt practices and outright crookery? Let’s have a look at what Coeymans has put on its plate of “Let’s have crow for dinner”.

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Tom Dolan: We might as well start with this king of the loser wannabes. Dolan has a long history of non-performance but is a major backstabber waffler. Dolan is right there when the spotlight is on someone else and he’s ready to make some stupid comment he thinks will make him shine but only exposes his absolute ignorance and stupidity. But he’s chairman of the Coeymans democrap committee and he can choose and endorse democrap candidates for public office in the Coeymans communities. That’s sick!

Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey

Just his short-term history will give you an idea of who this vulture is: Remember Dolan’s voter registration scandal he created from his Choices program office? We do. He was allegedly using his position as director of the Choices program to “encourage” recipients to register a certain way-in support of Dolan’s ambitions, obviously. It was sort of buy-a-vote for benefits. Is that what we need in town government? Dolan was there for renaming Coeymans “Reubenville“; in other words he prostituted the town of Coeymans for a roast beef sandwich. He didn’t care how ridiculous it made the community appear. He got a fistful of coupons for free sandwiches (no record was ever kept of the hundreds of coupons and where they went). Actually, when we think of dithering dolts, Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey!

Dolan also lost his bid for a seat in the New York State Senate. It wasn’t just a loss, it was a political disaster.

Dolan and his cronies were key in selling out to Carver Companies and letting Carver Laraway rape the community, get tax breaks and make millions at the community’s and the environment’s expense. We’d like to know where the DEC and the EPA was when all that was going on; or where the DEC and the EPA are now that all of the crap is running into the Coeymans Creek. It sure makes a difference when and where the DEC and EPA show up when you have the likes of Tom Dolan, Larry Conrad, Jerry Deluca, Gregory Darlington and other vermin on your side, doesn’t it?


Is Laverne “Larry” Conrad, Coeymans Code Enforcement Officer, A Key Here?

Remember...

Remember…Time is running out.

It would be salvific if Mr Conrad, as he approaches death, were to consider confessing his involvement in so many corrupt and damning transactions and conspiracies; if Mr Laverne “Larry” Conrad were to come clean, seek absolution, and reconciliation with those, to whom he has caused so much suffering, he may find some redemptive merit in also bringing those whose guilt he shares, by exposing them, to seek forgiveness and peace. That would be a very meritorious Christian final gesture on Mr Conrad’s part, and a contribution to making this a better world before he leaves it, before he comes face-to-face with his creator and judge. How about it, Mr Conrad? If you want to schedule an appointment with a chaplain, just write confidentially to rcs.confidential@gmail.com.


The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

And where are all those jobs that were created to convince the stupids in Coeymans and the corrupt EPA to give Laraway and his Carver Companies license to rape the environment and create new dangers for residents with increased heavy truck traffic and dust, Dust, DUST! Thanks Dolan!

Not only that, here we have Dolan’s own wife, My Lin Dolan, suing the town of Coeymans for a nose injury the clumsy cow sustained on town property. That’s how Dolan stewards the town of Coeymans’ interest: his wife sues the town. In a document dated September 1, 2015, from Dolan’s attorney to the Town of Coeymans, the town is served with notice of Dolan’s claim. Dolan’s response: Everyone has the right to sue. But that response doesn’t apply to everyone, of course.

But Dolan’s real failure is in his role as chairman of the Coeymans democrap party. All that Dolan could come up with is a handful of loser political recycles: Phil Crandall, Youmans, Touchette, and of course, Dolan himself.

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

The best way we can say is to be found in some “confidential” papers that we have acquired and go back to former judge Phil Crandall’s problems with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, and which resulted in Mr Crandall’s resignation from his elected judgeship after only two years on the bench (He was elected to be a Coeymans town justice and also served as a part-time village of Ravena justice alongside his backstabbing colleague, Harold “Hal” Warner, husband of village of Ravena village hall harlot Nancy Warner). (Read the Times Union report, “Coeymans town justice resigns amid charges“.)

It’s interesting to note that Crandall’s resignation was connected with favors he did for Dolan, Touchette and others while still a judge. Just as we’ve been writing and informing the community over the past 3 years, there are two classes of citizens in the town of Coeymans: those in the incest club and everyone else. As charter members of the Coeymans Incest Club (a.k.a. the Coeymanazis) Dolan, Youmans, Touchette and Crandall took care of one another and others until the water got too hot. You all know the saying, “No honor among thieves.” Well, the Dolan gang was living proof of the saying. Crandall may have done the favors but Dolan and Touchette certainly weren’t turning them down.

The examples we are providing below come directly from the Formal Complaint against Crandall filed with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and the “stipulation” of resignation in lieu of hearing signed by Crandall. By signing the stipulation Crandall agreed to resign all judicial offices he held and he also agreed never to run again for judicial office. You can certainly guess why he wanted to avoid a hearing at all costs, can’t you? If there were a hearing an awful lot of rats would be jumping ship or would be shipped downstate to enjoy the hospitality of the New York State Corrections system.

But All Three Freaks are Alive

But All Three Freaks are Alive

Charge I of the Complaint involves Crandall and Richard “Dick” Touchette’s son, Jeffrey, who was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign. According to the documents, Crandall met Tochette “at church” (“At church” no less! That could only be at St Patrick’s RC of Ravena. Talk about hypocrits!), where Touchette discussed with Crandall Touchette’s son’s pending court appearance. At the time, Gregory Teresi was village attorney, and his practice was to “plea bargain” friends’ tickets to parking tickets (a fine of $25.000, but that wasn’t good enough for Touchette or for Crandall, Crandall had it fixed to be an ACOD, adjourned in contemplatin of dismissal. The Commission found that to be in violation of the Constitution and in violation of Judiciary Law. In other words, Richard “Dick” Touchette, now running for County Legislature, unlawfully met with then judge Crandall to get his son’s moving violation fixed. Is Touchette or Crandall the kind of people we need in government? We say NO!

Charge II of the Complaint describes a second incident, and involves Crandall’s brother-in-law, James A. Albano, who was ticketed for an uninspected vehicle. Again, Gregory Teresi was involved. When Albano appeared in court, Crandall dismissed the charge. The Commission found that Crandall acted unethically and unlawfully by knowingly hearing the case of a close relative, his brother-in-law (Crandall is married to Albano’s sister), finding that Crandall granted a “lenient dispostion” to a relative, and so violated the Constitution and Judiciary Law.

Charge III of the Complaint involves candidate for re-election to the Town of Coeymans town council, Mr Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan, who is also Coeymans democrap committee chairman, who got Youmans and Touchette on the ballot! The Commission notes that Dolan was charged with and ticketed by a state trooper for speeding (78 mph in a 65 mph area). The case was to be heard in Coeymans court. The problem is Crandall should not have been involved to hear the case because Dolan was on the town council at the time and the Coeymans town council determined Crandall’s salary; there was a serious conflict of interest involved. Dolan appeared before Crandall and Crandall accepted Gregory Teresi’s “plea bargain” to change the ticket to a parking ticket ($25.00 fine). The Commission found Crandall guilty of violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law.

Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers as candidates for public office!

clueless is no excuse

Charge IV of the Complaint involves Crandall misusing his judicial office to intervene in a dispute between local police-former chief Gregory “Duplin'” Darlington and Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca were all involved in this one. The Complaint reports that Deluca entered Crandall’s daughter’s, Jena Crandall, residence without a warrant and searched the place, which got Crandall’s “son-in-law”, Anthony Walsh, in a huff. Crandall improperly used his position as town judge to intervene and to try to get the Coeymans police to apologize to avoid a lawsuit. The Commission found this to be a violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law. Crandall misused is office to influence the police.

The papers include certified transcriptions of the telephone conversation between Crandall and Darlington, parts of which we found to be very interesting in terms of Crandall’s relationship with Mr Stephen Flach, Coeymans town supervisor. Somehow these statements don’t really make you comfortable with the guy’s character. Here are a couple:

CRANDALL: “…I think we can makethis all go away…This is all Steve Flach and his horde need to try to eliminate the police department again and I don’t want that.”
CRANDALL:–And I don’t want this. I don’t want any of this to go any further than here. I just want you to take care of it.”
DARLINGTON: “…And I don’t understand what — how this has to do with civil rights or Flach wanting to get rid of the police department.”
CRANDALL: “No, I’m just afraid. I’m afraid that he’ll use something like this with his dominions.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “He’ll pack a town board meeting and start raising hell, and I don’t want that.”
DARLINGTON: “Right.”
CRANDALL:”Because I want our police department.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “…Just think of how you would feel if this happened to your daughter or son-in-law.”

Well, having read the transcript, we can’t say we agree with Crandall, even if the Coeymans police department at the time was a bunch of ignorant, corrupt thugs. It appears that once the corruption was removed from the town court and from the police department, Mr Flach’s police department is running perfectly. We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job. The Coeymans police department is still there but it’s doing its job professionally. Any other questions Mr Crandall? Seems that was a very bad call, Mr Crandall. You lose again!

We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job

We also have some off-the-record information from the village of Ravena. It seems that former mayor John Bruno wanted Phil Crandall to be a village/town justice so that he, Crandall, could be elected to be Coeymans town supervisor. Apparently, Bruno and his minions felt that if Crandall were elected to that position, the village would have a chance to take over Coeymans. The plan sounds so crazy its believable given the history of Bruno’s minions, Nancy Warner, Hal Warner, Kathy and “Dirty-Hands-Jerry” Deluca and the Darlingtons, and their minions!

Here we have local elected officials conspiring together to abuse the trust the public put into them when they were elected. They’re asking for and getting favors from insiders, something none of us can do. But these are just a couple of the incidents. We’ve already published information on local officials getting special favors for their kids’ drug and vehicular offenses from the Deluca-Darlington police department and from local judges. Cathy Deluca lied to a police investigator (Jason Albert) and obstructed justice, misdemeanors at least, but the Deluca-Darlington police department refused to investigate.

While former Ravena mummy-mayor Bruno and Nancy Warner may have been prepping Crandall to be Coeymans town supervisor, Crandall obviously gave favors to the wrong people and his own turned on him (Hal and Nancy Warner), forcing him to resign or go to hearing. A hearing was out of the questions because it would have opened the floodgates for investigations into Ravena government and the cat would have hit the fan.

You can make all the excuses you want for Crandall but the bottom line is that he’s unfit for elected office as Coeymans town supervisor.

That brings us to Tom Dolan and his picks for democrap candidates, Dick Touchette and Youmans. Touchette was a member of the Coeymans town board in 2011 but lost his bid for re-election in 2011. He campaigned alongside Crandall in 2011. Touchette lost the election in 2011. Our question is what has changed to make Dolan think this community wants the likes of Touchette back in 2015? Is that the best democrap chairman Dolan can do for Coeymans is to offer another loser to the community for election? So, when Youmans and Touchette lost the elections, they decided they would retaliate by pushing to terminate health benefits for elected officials! Of course, Mr and Mrs Crandall backed them all the way. They’re an example of the good church-goin’ Christian hypocrites swarming at St Patrick’s RC in Ravena!

Dolan, Crandal, Youmans, Touchette, Masti, Miller

And isn’t it odd that John Bruno (former mayor of Ravena), Phil Crandall (former village and town justice), “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (former Coeymans cop), Cathy Deluca (former 3x failed healthclub manager), Gregory Darlington (former Coeymans police chief), Gregory Teresi (former village attorney), Joseph Teresi (former NYS court judge) were all shown the door at about the same time. Is there some connection with “Leave or Go to Jail”? Did those exits signal an end to decades of corruption? How is it that Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares has lasted this long? He should be the next dumpy dolt to go!

In an article several months ago, we informed our readers that Touchette is director of the diocesan cemeteries. Look around Ravena and Coeymans; they’ve turned into virtual graveyards. Maybe Mr Dolan wants a professional graveyard manager in office so that cemetery management principles can be applied to Ravena and Coeymans, to Albany County. Well, so far Mr Touchette and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany haven’t managed any resurrections in the graveyards so we don’t have very high hopes that Mr Touchette, if elected to the Albany County Legislature, will be very successful in bringing life back to dead communities. Or does Dolan simply want Touchette to manage the county and our communities like a big cemetery? It’s really scary but then its Halloween time, isn’t it? No thanks, Mr Dolan, Mr Touchette!

More examples of how Dick Touchette is a slippery worm: Does anyone remember back in 2008, the Town of Coeymans had received a Small Cities Grant in the amount of $750,000.00 and Mr Touchette, then town councilman Touchette, moved to refuse the grant. Mr Youmans, then town councilman Youmans, seconded the motion. Coeymans didn’t receive the money. Thanks Mr Touchette and Mr Youmans.

Does anyone remember the recent lawsuits brought against the town of Coeymans, Coeymans Recycling, TCI, D. Trickey brought by Clearwater, Coeymans Heritage Society, and several citizens. Richart Touchette was one of those going after the town of Coeymans and the other defendants in that lawsuit. Apparently Mr Touchette got cold feet and lost his environmental principles when Mr Dolan approached him to run for office and but his name stayed on the list of plaintiffs. Talk about a major waffler! Richard “Dick” Touchette has no balls when it comes to sticking with the issues. But one thing is abundantly clear, our resident cemetery manager, Dick Touchette, is against anything that will bring prosperity or apparent prosperity to Coeymans. He and Youmans killed the small cities grant and Touchette and his mob are trying to kill jobs in Coeymans. Well, what would you expect from Dick Touchette — all he knows is managing cemeteries and is more familiar with dead things.

Wouldn’t it be better and make more sense to just rally residents to enforce environmental vision and public safety through local government and demanding that the EPA, DEC, and Corps of Engineers do their business fairly and uniformly, rather than being tools of corruption, killing local small businesses? Yeah. That might take some integrity and some balls, and none of the democrap candidates have that equipment.

Yup

Yup! I’m a waffler, a ball-less wonder!
Yes, I am.

(Touchette & Youmans)

And what about Jim Youmans? Another big-time loser. Youmans took office when firebug Henry Traver was indicted for arson and had to resign from the office of Coeymans town supervisor. Legend has it that Youmans was such a vile jerk that during executive session poor Henry Traver had to have the Coeymans police on site in order to ensure that Youmans didn’t hurt someone (probably Henry). Youmans is a really poor excuse for an electable candidate. His inability to be a team player and the fact that he’s a schoolyard bully are big negatives and should keep him out of public office. And did you know that Youmans is a used car salesman? Really! He’s a used car salesman and we all know the reputation of the legendary used car salesman, don’t we? Well, Youmans gave the used car salesman of jokes galore the poor reputation they have. Do we need a used car salesman on the town board? Or the likes of Youmans? Hell NO!

Well, there you have it in a nutshell. The democrap choices for local government. Mr Dolan has no record to speak of except failures and absolutely no skills in town government. He’s proved also that he is a failure when it comes to choosing candidates for the democrap slate this November. We’ve shown above that Dolan’s choices have all been on the take in the past. What’s worse still is that Dolan’s democrap loser’s club are exactly those characters who played roles in exposing Coeymans supervisor candidate Phil Crandal’s corruption. What more needs to be said?

Well, there is more and that more is about “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller’s bid for election to the Albany County Legislature. We have a lot to say about that weasel’s arrogance and corruption and his history of abuse of his teacher’s job, his double-dipping, his questionable allegiances, and his overall crookery and corruption. It’s unimaginable that he would have any support in his bid for election but that support is likely coming from NYSUT, the teachers union. Matt Miller is the union’s bitch in RCS. He’ll be the teachers union’s bitch in the Albany County Legislature, where he’ll continue is unethical practices and corruption. More on the “Mutt”in our next article.

Democrap Swindle: Dan McCoy, Craig Apple, Tom Dolan do the Democrap Thing.

Dan McCoy, Albany County Executive seeking re-election on the democrap ticket this November, has to be dumb as dirt if he thinks he’s going to get any political capital by playing a shell game AGAIN with the residents and taxpayers of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community. If the Ravena News Herald front-page story (September 10, 2015) on the democrap conspiracy to provide Ravena youth with a place to go to stay out of trouble is to be believed it’s UNBELIEVABLE.

scam scam scam

The Scams Victimizing Ravena-Coeymans Never Seem to Stop!
And they always seem to be “for the kids.”

Dan McCoy, Craig Apple Playing Democrap Joke on Ravena-Coeymans and Albany County Taxpayers!

Do you all have to be reminded that you are paying Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk school taxes to support a school budget of more than $40 million? Isn’t that where the kids are supposed to be provided (1) with education, (2) with supervised extracurricular and after-school activities such as sports and field trips, (3) with academic help like tutoring and homework assistance? If Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr Dolan, and Mr John D’Antonio could put together a whole brain among their four empty heads, and if they had any clue as to what has been going on in the Ravena Coeymans-Selkirk community in the past 2-3 years, they’d stay far, far away from it, especially in an election year. But they’re too brainless, clueless to do that. They’re blinded by their uncontrollable egos and indifference to the real needs of their communities.

If you don’t remember what happened to two — count them TWO — previous youth and teen activity centers that were driven out of town by village trustee Nancy Warner, insider Cathy Deluca, Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca (now executive director of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs) after a [forced] retirement from the Coeymans Police Department, former Coeymans Police Chief Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington, former mummy mayor John Bruno, let us remind you how village of Ravena and town of Coeymans elected officials and corrupt police department employees (Deluca and Darlington), obstructed justice, violated protected civil rights, harassed and persecuted the teen center until kids and parents were driven away. Of course, the teen center was attracting teens and youth who would otherwise be on the street. The teen center also was potential competition for the now defunct and dismantled Ravena Health and Fitness Center that Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca, with the collaboration and support of former mummy mayor John Bruno and the ex-Coeymans cops Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca and Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin” Darlington (former police chief now part-time school bus driver), unlawfully created and turned over to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s partner, Cathy Deluca, whose fraudulent civil service application was unlawfully considered and approved by a now resigned director of Albany County Civil Service.

How is it possible?  and Who? is behind this new initiative to all of a sudden take care of Ravena’s youth and teens; the very youth and teens who are an almost extinct species in Ravena and Coeymans, thanks in part to misinformation, corruption, abuse of public office, and downright nastiness?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

Why do all these corrupt schemes seem to land in Ravena?

While Dan McCoy and Tom Dolan promise that the proposed youth center, which is to be housed in the same space as the former now defunct Ravena Health and Fitness Center (the third failure chalked up to Cathy Deluca’s corruption and mismanagement), now that all the junk equipment has been sold (Let’s see…Warner and Deluca paid Robert “Bob” Fisk, another Ravena insider, more than $40,000 for that equipment. Warner and Deluca kept the RHFC open for more than two years while it was hemorrhaging taxpayer dollars to the tune of more than $100,000 each year! So what’s the final cost of these brainiac ideas to local taxpayers? Why not ask Ravena Mayor William “Mouse” Misuraca, who strangely was unavailable (as a Republican) to appear among the shark mob of democrats McCoy, Apple, Dolan, etc.)

Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Look, RCS taxpayers are paying a bundle for the services that will be literally duplicated by this idiotic so-called “youth programming initiative” for Ravena and Coeymans. We have a school budget that is supposed to be doing most of what Moron McCoy, Rotten Apple, Dudley-Dolan and Dopey-D’Antonio are pushing! In fact, didn’t we recently vote on a capital improvement proposal for the athletic facilities for the RCS school district to the tune of several millions of dollars? We have an RCS Sports Association. What are they doing for youth? We have a Coeymans Police Youth Athletic organization. We have an almost competition swimming pool! Do we really need to pay for duplications of effort AGAIN?

Why Ravena-Coeymans? What’s the catch? There’s got to be a catch. Or is it just that the democraps are scared shiteless that their cronies are going to get the boot in November?

This sounds like another scam that’s taking the RCS community for another ride down Stupid Lane. If you fall for this one like you’ve fallen for all the other scams from Reubenville to the Ravena Health and Fitness failure, you really should be sent down the river for mental treatments.

If the county of Albany and Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio have so much change jingling in their pockets, there are much more needy communities and organizations that need those taxpayer dollars. We intend to contact those organizations and let them know what kind of scandalous scam is going on in Ravena-Coeymans, and we’ll let them ask Mr McCoy, Mr Apple and Mr D’Antonio what is going on in their empty democrap heads.

sleezebag

McCoy, Apple, Dolan

As for Ravena-Coeymans we have this to say: Utilize your school facilities fully. Use your RCS Commuity Library fully. Use your churches fully. Use your extracurricular activities and after-school support activities fully. Use your local sports associations fully. And parents, spend some time with your kids for a change. Try being parents.

Mr McCoy, Mr Apple, Mr D’Antonio, Mr Dolan: We’re not finished with you slugs yet. We have more to say about you leeches in an upcoming article. This latest scam you’re trying to feed our friends and neighbors is a declaration of election year war. Let the games begin!

Local and Regional Politicians are using and abusing our children as fodder for their inflated egos; these politicians are using our children as tools to manipulate parents and adults into supporting their freakish games. STOP it!

The Ravena News Herald was once a family-owned, community newspaper; George McHugh, a local attorney who was rewarded for his politics with a judgeship, sold out to the Johnson Newspaper Group. The Ravena News Herald in now a corporate rag being used by its owners, John B. Johnson and the Johnson Newspaper Group, to promote their politics and their agendas. The Ravena News Herald is no longer YOUR community newspaper, it’s THEIRS to use to bait you with your local faces and then to force feed you THEIR politics. You are being manipulated to the max. WAKE UP RCS!

Stop using and abusing our kids for your political games!It's not for the kids, Jerky Boys, it's for YOU! The Editor

We Specialize in Rubbish Removal: A Perfect Record

We're cleaning up!

We’re cleaning up!

Since the inauguration of this blog as a reliable source of community information and as a catalyst for change-for-the-better of the communities in the R-C-S southern Albany county and northern Greene county regions, we have accumulated a long list of accomplishments, thanks to the contributions and support of the communities we serve. Here are just a few that we successfully pushed to rid our communities of trash:SUCCESSES%20starburst

  • John Bruno as Mayor of Ravena: He’s history.
  • We showed how Nancy Warner is a two-headed snake and hypocrite: She’s history but doesn’t know it yet.
  • Tom Boehm and his cronies on the Coeymans town board: He’s gone and so are they (rest to follow).
  • The dirty-hands-duo Dirty-Hands-Jerry Deluca and his sidekick Gregory “Dumpy-Dumplin'” Darlington: they’re both gone (but with their pensions, regrettably!).
  • The illegal and unlawful Ravena Health and Fitness Center (and its failure manager, Cathy Deluca): it’s bye-byes for the RHFC and Cathy Deluca (see below).
  • The Coeymans Police Department (but we do support keeping Chief P.J. McKenna in the capacity as law enforcement liaison to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police; McKenna is a professional law enforcement officer with a great deal of experience and savvy.): it’s curtains for the CPD!
  • The Coeymans incestuous gang of dispatchers: they’re passé.
  • In New Baltimore, we worked to get rid of the democrap mob under Susan O’Rorke and get some new blood in New Baltimore town hall: we’re working to get some work out of the new egomaniacs in NB town hall now.
  • Also in New Baltimore, we worked to oust the former town clerk for alleged abuse of office: we ended up with an initial political appointee, Barbara Finke (NB town supervisor:Nick Dellisanti  “Republicans appoint republicans.” — That was a really bad response, Nick!) who ran unopposed and is now in office — Well, almost, Finke seems to be away, absent, on vacation more than she’s in the clerk’s office (but that’s fuel for another article): Bye-bye next election.
  • We exposed numerous local scandals in Ravena village hall including the incompetence of the village clerk (a Bruno appointee,Annette Demitraszek, and deputy-clerk Kristine Biernacki, Nancy Warner friends), the public works scandals and Henry Traver (we have some tidbits to share on Traver and his relationship with some of the hopeless hopefuls) and Sandy Debacco, the water scandals, the Ravena mayor and boardmember health insurance benefits scandal (full-time benes for less than part-time work!), and we’re still working on those.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the scandals involving Denis Jordan, NB superintendent of highways, and his unlawful labor practices, his non-existing recordkeeping, his misuse of town resources.
  • In New Baltimore we exposed the problem of Joseph Tanner, animal control officer, being paid several thousands of dollars of taxpayer money while he works full time for the New York State Department of Transportation; he can’t possibly respond to animal control calls while working on a road crew!
  • An the list goes on and on and on. Just search this blog and get the facts! We’re working on some great exposés at this very time. Stay tuned!
"Dirty-Dumplin'" Darlington as Busdriver

“Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington as Busdriver

And speaking of Gregory “Dirty-Dumplin'” Darlington, former chief of the Coeymans police department. That same dirty cop who conspired with Nancy Warner and then Ravena mayor John Bruno to harass and persecute Ravena kids, how is it that the “Dirty-Dumplin’” was recently observed driving an RCS school bus?!?! How can the RCS school board allow that weasel who was such a savage to our children only a year ago should now be have access to our children on their school buses? Where are you parents? What’s that pervert doing on the bus with your kids? Is the “Dirty Dumplin’” that hard up for a job? Won’t his fellow weasel Albany County District Attorney David Soares give him a job? Nope. Even David Soares isn’t that stupid. Only the RCS board of education can claim to be that stupid. Check out this Family Guy busdriver clip.

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

Not to be used to support the illegal money-pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!

As for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center: The Ravena town board refused to fund the Ravena Heaps and Fatness Center in 2015. We certainly applauded that move but had to ask Why did it take them so long? Almost a year prior they admitted it was failing and was a money pit. At a recent Ravena village board meeting we were appalled to have heard that the Village was looking into getting county/state funds to keep the money-pit operating for another year, presumably to keep failure Cathy Deluca in a job. Where were they going to get the funds? Well, they expected to get money from the money confiscated from drug dealers and placed in a fund for supporting communities etc. The Ravena village board had better think again. Here’s Why?

  • We smell corruption and collusion in that announcement. Is that why we see Dirty-Hands-Jerry Decluca‘s New York State Association of Fire Chiefs official vehicle at Ravena town hall? Is he still misusing police information to shoe-horn his pet hippo into a secure position?
  • We smell Nancy Warner still trying to keep her biatch-buddy in a job but still at taxpayer expense! It’s not going to work, Nancy. That money you’re greedily eying is earmarked for worthwhile community projects, not to keep your friends in play-money!

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way!

According to the local rag, the Ravena News Herald, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department was “interested” in taking over the Ravena Heaps and Fatness money pit! That’s absolutely absurd! To think that Craig Apple or anyone in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department would seriously consider taking over that dump is absolutely scandalous and political suicide! Warning to Mr Apple: Stay clear of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center or face election ruin!

But according to that same report in the Ravena News Herald, Ravena hasn’t heard a peep from Mr Apple or anyone in his department regarding the alleged “interest.” Maybe there still is some sanity in Albany County.

Here’s our promise: If the Village of Ravena or anyone associated with the Village of Ravena even tries to submit a request for funds or grant money, especially from money confiscated from drug dealers, the shit will hit the fan big time. We will obtain all applications and the names of all persons involved and expose them all. We will contact all regional community-based organizations, non-profit community organizations, non-government organizations an create an avalanche that will bury Ravena village hall. Once we’ve gotten the support of regional organizations, we’ll use that support to demand investigations, audits, and prosecutions from the Office of the New York State Attorney General, the Office of the Comptroller, and others. So think again, Ravena, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center is dead, and it’s going to stay that way! And if the Albany County Sheriff is so asinine to allow himself to get involved in such a scandalous and corrupt situation, he’d better start updating his résumé because he’ll be political HISTORY in a New York minute, and be listed as a political suicide!

It’s bad enough that even a rumor is even circulating that any Albany County department would consider taking over the Ravena money pit but to think that the suggestion is that the Albany County Sheriff would be willing to redirect confiscated drug money or any public funds to the third Cathy-Deluca-failure is pure insanity. Note that Mr Apple, and note it well.

Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions…What’s next, campaign signs in the windows of Ravena village hall?

electioneering

Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey represent all that is corrupt in Ravena — aided and abetted by Ravena “Mayor Mouse” Misuraca’s band of retarded sockpuppets. It’s an election year and the roaches are coming out big-time! Nancy Warner is flashing her fangs from her nag’s head, together with doddering mumbler Bill Bailey, “Mr Nasty” Jim Youmans, Graveyard Manager Rick Touchette, and several other failures. Nancy Warner is dead in the water but doesn’t know it. In fact, we were flabbergasted when we drove by the village gazebo during the village-wide yard sale and saw Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Rick Touchette all misusing public property in their electioneering! Misusing public property for party political campaigning is heavy duty unethical and illegal. That’s the same Nancy Warner who had the Coeymans police chasing local village kids when the kids were hanging out at the Gazebo. But it’s OK for Warner and her political cronies to misuse public property for their political ambitions. Right? WRONG! We’d also like to remind our readers, especially our Ravena readers, that it was Nancy Warner [with the support of Bill Bailey] who orchestrated the mindless scandal of creating the Ravena Health and Fitness Center — which we all now know was devouring more than $100,000 a year of Ravena taxpayer dollars before the Ravena board woke up and admitted it was a failure and a money pit —, and it was Nancy Warner, who hired known failure Cathy Deluca to be manager of the fitness center, and who ensured that Ravena village hall insider Robert Fisk managed to collect more than $40, 000 of Ravena taxpayer dollars for his used fitness equipment. And it’s that same Bill Bailey who wants to meter and charge Coeymans fire department for the water they use in responding to emergencies, putting out fires! And it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who want to turn off water to the hamlet of Coeymans. And, Yup!, it’s the same Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who, for years, have been involved in the unlawful and improper water and sewer billing practices in Ravena. But now they’re looking for your votes! No Way José!

And let us remind RCS residents and taxpayers that it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey who upped the RCS Community Library’s rent an additional $600-700 a month to force the library to vacate the library space for the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center. And it was Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey along with former Mayor John Bruno and his puppets on the Ravena village board who were constantly threatening the RCS Community Library with eviction. Show us any other community in the civilized world that would do that to its community library!

Warner and Bailey: Illegal and unfair water and sewer billing, shadey bookkeeping, harassment of our kids, illegal and unethical campaign practices, abuse of the community library, supporters of the Cathy Deluca failure system a.k.a. the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, insider dealers. Do you still want to put them back in village hall?

Tom Dolan and Peter Masti of the Coeymans town board are also looking for election to political office. Tom Dolan is an abject failure and an embarrasment to the democrap party: he’s managed to lose his grip on every important issue and is waffler-in-chief on the Coeymans town board. Dolan has to go and like yesterday. He’s got a lot of negative baggage, too, like his alleged manipulation of voting through is Choices office. That’s going to follow him. And let’s not forget the favors he allegedly accepted from local town and village justices for his kids’ drinking and drug problems. He’s corrupt and is not above taking unethical and illegal favors.

Peter Masti misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it — we don’t need to elect fanatics or more tunnel-vision in local government!

Now native Californian Peter Masti, who likes to remind readers of his many letters to the editor in the Troy Record that he’s a registered nurse, is a real dud. We’ve pubished some of his lunatic letters to the editor. Now we’d be the last to malign religion and spirituality, but Masti’s sense of god is perverse. He’s a literalist and fundamentalist (he uses the Bible as a weapon to control, that is, he misuses Holy Scripture because he misunderstands it.) He’s been an embarrassment on the Coeymans town board since he’s was elected. Fanatics and tunnel-vision have no place in our government and we need to start cleaning house at the local level.

"Cryptkeeper"Touchette Campaigning

“Cryptkeeper”Touchette Campaigning

And then there’s Rick Touchette. Touchette has a reputation for lying through is teeth but that’s no news in Ravena-Coeymans politics, much less in Albany democrap circles. We all know that Albany County is already a social and economic graveyard, and that Coeymans and Ravena are even deader. So it’s only natural that Rick Touchette, with his extensive credentials and experience in managing graveyards, should want to run for Albany County legislator. C’mon people, wake up and smell the decaying corpses we have running for public office. The irony of Touchette’s ambition as published in the Ravena News Herald (June 11, 2015) really made us laugh. Here’s a guy (Rick Touchette) whose entire experience is managing cemeteries and now he wants to legislate for Albany County. Now really, neighbors, isn’t that scarey? The Cryptkeeper wants to be your legislator!

Rick Touchette's career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

Rick Touchette’s career is managing cemeteries. Like Ravena/Coeymans, Albany?

For some years now Touchette has been the executive director of the Albany [Roman Catholic] Diocesan Cemeteries, and if you’ve ever had to deal with that bunch of anal freaks, you’d steer well clear of Touchette.

Ravena gives Clerk-Treasurer Private Lessons @ $310/hour!!!

The Village of Ravena, that is, Nancy Warner, has hired an Albany accounting consulting firm, SaxBST, to provide Quickbooks training to Ravena Clerk-Treasurer Annette  Demitraszek paying the consultant doing the training, Lynda P. Smith, $175.00/hour and the other consultant, a SaxBST partner, Willard G. Reynolds, $310.00/hour. Question is: Why isn’t the village of Ravena using some of the less expensive training available? Question is: Why does the village of Ravena have to spend $18,000 for the first year fee to have SaxBST train Demitraszek when someone already with the knowledge should have been hired? Question is: Why hasn’t Nancy Warner, who claims to have 30 years in Ravena village hall training her so-called clerk-treasurers? Question is: If Nancy Warner is so damned concerned about “wasting taxpayer dollars” why is she hiring SaxBST at the rate of $300.00/hour?

Village of Ravena Accounting Principal

Village of Ravena Accounting Principle

Why is Ravena Paying $310.00/hour or $18,000 a Year to Provide Private Lessons for the Clerk-Treasurer?

Nancy Warner, the Ravena village trustee, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer money when responding to residents’ requests or problems, despite her gung-ho support of the money pit Ravena Health and Fitness Center that devoured more than $200,000 of taxpayer money, while paying fitness-center virus Cathy Deluca more than $60,000 of that money to run yet another fitness center into oblivion, has done it again!

We have received paperwork that shows that Nancy Warner has contracted an outside consultant firm to train her two sockpuppets, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki, how to use  Quickbooks accounting software. That’s all well and good but here’s where it gets to be a scandal:

Nancy Warner and her cronies on the Ravena village board headed by Ravena mayor Bill “Mouse” Misuraca, Joel Coye, Keith Mahler and Bill Bailey, are spending what looks like $18,000 at a rate of $300.00/hour to the consultant firm to train the gals on site at the Ravena Village Hall.

We’re not only questioning the wisdom and the logic behind spending that kind of money on consultant fees, we’ve got an even better question for Nancy Warner: If you’ve been on board at Ravena village hall for more than 30 years, earlier as village clerk and then as village trustee, this “training” should have been done way back then. What this means is that until now, village accounting and bookkeeping was not being done correctly (the Comptroller’s audits have already pointed this fact out on several occasions). Why is it that village staff are being trained now and at such great cost to taxpayers? Accounting practices and laws don’t change over night; if the state does change practices and laws for villages and towns, they send out bulletins and advisories announcing the pending changes. Where was Ravena village administration when all of this was happening, Nancy? Bill Bailey? Were you asleep on watch? Wasn’t this your responsibility, Nancy Warner?

Yeah! Nancy. That's what we thought your answer would be!

Yeah! Nancy. That’s what we thought your answer would be!

Now, we know you’re just dying to know where the money for this irresponsible and insane spending spree is coming from, so we’d like to tell you.

The firm providing the training is the Albany accounting, taxation, and advisory firm, SaxBST, located on Computer Drive. They don’t necessarily provide “training” but are providing their services as consultants (consultants are astronomically more expensive than mere “trainers”). One of the partners, Willard J. Reynolds, who is providing “services” bills at the rate of $310.00/hour. The other “trainer”, Lynda P. Smith, who isn’t even listed on the SaxBST site, bills at a rate of $170.00/hour.
According to the papers we have received, per a document stamped “Received” by the “Town Clerk” on April 24, 2015, the Village of Ravena was billed $5,550.00 on November 30, 2014 for a meeting with “the mayor, 2 board members, Annette.” That invoice shows the proposed first year fee of $18,000 (less the $5,550 billed, leaving a balance of $12,450). The village of Ravena was billed $2,867.00 on December 31, 2014 for “meetings with Annette” and “in-office discussions and research” by Smith (15 hours) and Reynolds (3/4 of an hour). The balance of the first year fee on December 31, 2014 was $9,583.00. We can’t seem to locate the line item for these expenses in the 2015-16 Ravena Village Budget, so where’s the balance supposed to coming from?

Back to where the money was coming from to pay this extravagance. The SaxBST invoice for $5550.00 was vouchered and processed for payment on or around December 15, 2014. The SaxBST invoice for $2867.00 was received by the Village of Ravena on January 12, 2006, and approved for payment.

So where is the village of Ravena, Nancy Warner, finding the cash to pay for all of this. Well, we didn’t have to look far. All we had to do is look on the payment vouchers and then at the line items in the Village of Ravena budget, and match them up. You see, Nancy Warner and the village of Ravena board are tapping several other accounts to get their hands on the money. For example, to pay the $5550.00 they used $3885.00 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $832.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $832.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). To pay the $2867.00 they used $2006.90 from line item A1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), $430.00 from line item F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services), and $430.00 from line item G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services). They just barely made it in the 2014-15 budget but it doesn’t appear that they will in the 2015-16 budget because two of the line items: F1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) and G1320.426 (Auditor-Contractual Services) don’t appear in that budget. So our question is: Where are they going to get the balance of more than $9,000 to cover the outstanding balance for the year’s SaxBST fees?

Now get this: Nancy Warner is the contact person shown on the correspondence from SaxBST. Annette Demitraszek, the assistant clerk-treasurer, a Bruno appointee and a Misuraca re-appointee, official Nancy-Warner-sockpuppet, is the village employee, the “authorized official” who is certifying and approving the expenditure. Now isn’t that delicious: Nancy Warner, who is so concerned about wasting taxpayer dollars, is having her cronies privately trained on site, on village time by consultants billing at the rate of $175/h and $310/hour!!! And guess who is certifying and approving the payment of the fat invoices? None other than the very person receiving the training and benefits: Annette Demitraszek, village of Ravena clerk-treasurer! Anybody smell a rat yet?

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

About $20 from Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

So we did a little research on Quickbooks training. You can get a 2-day mastery course for $499.00  and do it on line with Intuit, who has trained more than 2 million government and business clients and for $999.99 you can become a Quickbooks VIP member and enjoy extended benefits . We won’t go into the benefits of these programs but will mention that local community colleges have ongoing courses for Quickbooks in their continuing education programs. Why didn’t the dumbasses in Ravena village hall consider any of these options? Because it’s easier to sit on their fat asses in village hall and spend Ravena taxpayer’s dollars. That’s why.

Better still, buy the Quickbooks for Dummies — if Demitrazek and the Ravena village board can qualify as dumbasses, they’ll ace the dummies course —, available from Amazon or Barnes&Noble for the outrageous price of $20.00. Now why didn’t Nancy Warner think of that?

We’d also like to speculate that there’s something in this wild spending to benefit someone in village hall. Why would Ravena’s elected officials be so irresponsible and expose themselves to such scandalous ridicule if they weren’t getting something big in return. What’s in it for Nancy Warner, we’d like to ask? It just wouldn’t make sense being so irresponsible so openly if they weren’t getting something considerable in return. Kickbacks? Favors? We do know that Annette Demitraszek is walking away with knowledge obtained in private lessons by some pretty pricey tutors, and she’s doing it on your tab. It’ll look good on her résumé when she goes job hunting when Ravena taxpayers demand she be fired, and Nancy Warner’s brought up on charges.

Now don’t you think you should be attending village of Ravena village board meetings and asking some questions about how your money is being spent?

They ran promising transparency and accountability. New Baltimore and Ravena: Check is in the mail.

tyrant_croppedVillage of Ravena

Many of us have experienced the hell of trying to get the village of Ravena to cough up public access information using the so-call F.O.I.L. (Freedom of Information Law) process established under the New York State Public Officers Law. Nancy Warner and her minions, Annette Demitraszek and Kristine Biernacki. It was bad under the Bruno tyranny but not much has changed. They manage to either delay indefinitely, to forget, or to refuse to produce the information requested. Seems it doesn’t bother them that they are violating citizens’ rights to public information or that they are breaking the law.

Our recommendation to the resident who received Nancy Warner’s unprofessional and illicit e-mail: Tell Ms Warner she has no authority to have written any email addressing the resident’s specific inquiry. She is not a sitting member of any committee competent to respond nor is she in any official position to represent the village board on her own. She was out of order and out of bounds when she responded, and the resident should tell her in no uncertain terms that has no authority to have addressed the e-mail to the resident. In other words, the resident should tell Ms Warner to place her broad bottom on the sharp end of a tack; sit on it.

Nancy Warner's Handling of Resident Inquiries How the Village of Ravena Responds to F.O.I.L. Requess

Nancy Warner’s Handling of Resident Inquiries
How the Village of Ravena Responds to F.O.I.L. Requests

Nor does it seem to bother them that they took oaths to serve the public, obey the law and to protect the Constitution. Mayor “Mouse” Misuraca is the village F.O.I.L. appeals officer, which means that he’s the one you have to rely on to overrule Nancy Warner and her sock puppets, Demitraszek and Biernacki, but he’s just a low-key kinda guy, not a hands-on leader. So that means you’re not getting your information.

We are fortunate to have received from one of our readers a recent e-mail received from Nancy Warner that clearly illustrates how she despises citizen’s rights and how she thinks she is servant to no one, least of all a resident of Ravena, and how snotty she responds to a resident’s inquires. Here’s what she writes:

Since I have a Village email address I suggest you use that when you send any emails to me regarding Village matters. I will not respond to any Village emails that come to any other address except that one.

With that said, I will address this one final time. You have had your unit situation for [redacted] Main Street explained to you, both in person & in writing, on several occasions dating back as far as when I was the Deputy Clerk-Treasurer for the Village. The Clerk’s office, the Mayor’s office & the Building Dept have all addressed this issue with you.

As far as I am concerned this matter is closed and no further discussion will be entertained by me. Please stop wasting the taxpayer’s money & the office staff’s valuable time by requesting information via FOIL that you have been given repeatedly.

Nancy Warner's Motto

Nancy Warner’s Motto

Well, Nancy Warner, we have reviewed the documents you and your office produced in response to the resident’s F.O.I.L. demands and what you and your “office staff” produced was rubbish, incomplete, and unintelligible in terms of responsible recordkeeping. While that didn’t surprise us in the least, we do have to remind you that you are a public servant, elected by some strange quirk of fate, and you don’t have choices in most of your duties and responsibilities. It’s not your little playpen, Nancy! (Your little pigpen, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center has been defunded, remember?)

As to your statement that you won’t respond: It is your duty and obligation to respond to any citizen’s or resident’s inquiries. You don’t have a choice, Nancy. If the resident pees his/her request in the snow and you read it it’s your duty and obligation to respond. So stop your arrogant twaddle, biatch! You’ll respond and you’ll like it!

What’s more, you’ll respond as many times as necessary. If a citizen or resident asks the same thing again it’s obvious you didn’t respond adequately in the first place. So you respond until the citizen or resident is satisfied he/she understands your explanation. That’s your duty and responsibility.

You make the big mistake of referring to the time when you were Deputy Clerk-Treasurer for the Village of Ravena

As a matter of fact, you make the big mistake of referring to the time when you were Deputy Clerk-Treasurer for the Village. That was a big mistake because most of the criminal activity and the poor recordkeeping began on YOUR WATCH, Nancy Warner! We’ve seen some of the garbage you have passed off as responses and documentation and it’s would make a third-grader look like a Philadelphia lawyer. Get with the program, Missy! You’re a public servant.

As far as you’re “concerned this matter is closed and no further discussion will be entertained by me” is totally incorrect. The matter isn’t closed because you want it to be. Not by a long shot. It’s closed when the matter is rectified, when the problem resolved. Who in hell do you think you are to tell a citizen or resident that you won’t entertain a citizen’s requests?

Cathy Deluca and her pigpenWhere'd the funding go, little piggies?

Cathy Deluca and her pigpen
Where’d the funding go, little piggies?

But the part of your e-mail, Ms Witch-on-a-Stick Nancy Warner is when you tell the resident to “please stop wasting the taxpayer’s money & the office staff’s valuable time.” That statement alone shows what a vile hypocrite you really are. But it also had to be the funniest statement you’ve made in your entire misspent life, but especially the stupidest statement you could have possibly have made as a trustee of the village of Ravena, a trustee who cannot be trusted to do what’s right for the people of Ravena, and the very trustee of the village of Ravena who ensured that her girlfriend, Cathy Deluca, got her own playpen (the “pigpen“) at taxpayer expense, the very trustee who spearheaded spending more than $40,000 on used fitness equipment from one of your insider friends, and the very untrusworthy trustee who ensured that the failed and now defunded Ravena Health and Fitness Center (a.k.a. Cathy’s pigpen), run into the ground by your girlfriend Cathy Deluca at taxpayer expense, got funded for two years, sending more than $200,000 of Ravena taxpayer dollars down the sewers. You should have thought of not wasting taxpayer money and office staff’s valuable time when you were doing your own damage to the village of Ravena, Nancy Warner!

Resident to Nancy Warner: Follow these directions!

New Baltimore

They ran promising transparency and accountability. What they are delivering is clear as mud and just as helpful.

Saved by the SmartPhone: What the Supervisor, Deputy Supervisor and a Greene County Sheriffs deputy apparently can’t see, the camera can! No denying that town of New Baltimore supervisor Nick Delisanti, sidekick “deputy supervisor” Jeff Ruso and a Greene County sheriff’s deputy really need to get their eyes — and ears — examined. And town of New Baltimore voters need to get their heads examined for electing this bunch of fruitcakes.

The situation: A public street in the National Historic District, Madison Avenue East, was blocked by a private contractor for extended periods on April 24 and 25, preventing access to the one-way street and the one-way streets connecting to it. No early notice of the closure was provided to residents on those streets. No signs were posted indicating safe detours. No flagmen were positioned to ensure safety. Residents had to navigate the one-way streets in the wrong direction to reach their homes. While going the wrong way on one-way streets the residents were at risk of accident and liability, not to mention ticketing should law enforcement have to investigate. Construction trucks were also using the streets. The town of New Baltimore was contacted regarding this unlawful and dangerous situation.

After several back-and-forth emails and several reminders, a New Baltimore Resident finally gets some answers, if you can call them answers. Here’s an example of New Baltimore town Supervisor’s responses to the resident’s questions regarding unlawful blocking of a public street in New Baltimore. These are the questions and Dellisanti’s answers.

Question: Was the town of New Baltimore notified of the tree removal operations?
Delisanti’s answer: No
Question: Is a permit required for such operations when they affect public transit?
Delisanti’s answer: Yes, block parties, parades, & street fairs.
Question: Is a permit required for operations that require closure of a public roadway?
Delisanti’s answer: Yes, block parties, parades, & street fairs.
Question: Is a permit required for redirecting traffic on a public roadway for private purposes?
Delisanti’s answer: Contact the Greene County Sheriffs office
Question: If a permit was required, was one applied for?
Delisanti’s answer: N/A
Question: If a permit was applied for and issued, when will the permit be available for inspection?
Delisanti’s answer: N/A
Question: What safety or monitoring precautions were provided by the town of New Baltimore during this operation?
Delisanti’s answer: Contact the Greene County Sheriffs office.
Question: If a permit were required and none was applied for and, consequently, none issued, what are the intentions of the town of New Baltimore to follow up on this matter?
Delisanti’s answer: N/A
Between those questions and receipt of the answers, the resident sent 4 other questions:
Question: Has anyone from the town visited the concerned area, specifically, has anyone from the town board or the Highway Department visited the area.
Delisanti’s answer: Yes, both Jeff Ruso & I went to the site; Deputy Superintendent Scott VanWormer went there after he finished with a multi – alarm fire on 9W in Coxsackie; he asked the contractor if any residents complained that the road was blocked & he said no; Scott asked him to open the road and he did.
Question: Has anyone from the town made inquiries as to who is doing the work and blocking off the streets, specifically, has anyone from the town board or the Highway Department made such inquiries since my initial notification?
Delisanti’s answer: Contractor was Jay Biel
Question: Has the town undertaken to involve law enforcement to investigate or to provide safety support during the operations going on on Madison Avenue East and in view of the traffic obstructions and diversions?
Delisanti’s answer: I had the Greene County Deputy Sheriff respond to Madison Ave East at 9:10am on 4/25.  The Deputy Sheriff reported back that the trees and limbs were down & the road was open.
Question: What documentation is being kept of any response to any of my questions.
Delisanti’s answer: I have all of your e-mails & my responses on file.
After having received those remarkable responses the resident writes:
I’m sure that you can appreciate that the qualities of diligence, conscientiousness, honesty, integrity, and thoroughness are high on the list of qualities we might seek, expect in leaders. The fact that you state that you have all of my emails on file but manage to respond to a mere fraction of the questions posed does not bode well for your overall score 😉
So, New Baltimore residents, go on out and close your streets down, it’s legal in New Baltimore — at least according to your town of New Baltimore supervisor, Mr Nick Dellisanti. But don’t have all of those street fairs, parades, or block parties without getting a permit. Remember all those New Baltimore street fairs, parades and block parties we have so many of. DUH! And we understand there’s going to be a new local tax in New Baltimore, the Supervisor’s Vision Surcharge, which will be used for the town of New Baltimore supervisor’s and deputy-supervisor’s vision exams and corrective lenses to help them see construction trucks and traffic cones, providing, of course, they go down to inspect during normal work hours, before the workmen take off for the day.
GET A PAIR

GET A PAIR

And what’s this crappola about “Contact the Greene County Sheriffs office“? What’s that steaming pile of BS, Mr Dellisanti? Madison Avenue East is a town of New Baltimore roadway, your responsibility first, your highway department’s responsibility first, NOT THE GREENE COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT’S!!! If anyone has to contact the Greene County Sheriff’s office it’s YOU, Mr Dellisanti! Get with the program. If you want to be supervisor and board member, start doing the job!
Speaking of doing the job. We understand New Baltimore Town Clerk Barbara Finke is again out of the office, on vacation for a month in Italy. Wasn’t there some talk about regular business hours for the New Baltimore Town Clerk and availability of the Town Clerk during those business hours? Seems Ms Finke is absent from the TC’s office more than she’s in; she’s taken more time off than she’s spend in the office. But wasn’t that the battle cry of the current New Baltimore town board and supervisor when Ms Brooks was town clerk? Seems the pot was calling the kettle black. But Mr Dellisanti’s motto is “Republicans appoint republicans.” And we’re not very happy when we feel we’ve been lied to. (We’ll be asking for Ms Finke’s attendance records by the FOIL process soon.)

Mr Jordan’s department couldn’t cough up enough documentation to choke a flea

And as for Mr Denis Jordan, New Baltimore town Highway Supervisor. He’s on vacation, too. But some time ago we learned that a laptop computer was purchased by the town of New Baltimore for Mr Jordan, to help him do his work. Well, it’s obviously not being used to keep records because in a recent response to a Freedom of Information Law demand for information, Mr Jordan’s department couldn’t cough up enough to choke a flea. So what’s Jordan using that computer for, anyway. We don’t expect anyone in New Baltimore Town Hall to know the answer to that one; after all, Jordan and town hall aren’t on speaking terms since the town board demanded their versions of transparency and accountability.

The Camera Doesn’t Lie

(but maybe the supervisor, deputy supervisor and a sheriff’s deputy do have a problem with truth-telling)

We’ve done a slideshow of the photos of the situation for your amusement:

For two days, Friday, April 24, 2015, and Saturday, April 25, 2015, a New Baltimore resident in the National Historic District was communicating with town of New Baltimore Supervisor Nick Dellisanti, and attempting to communicate with town of New Baltimore town clerk, Barbara Fink, about the fact that on those two days the one-way street Madison Avenue East was cordoned off with traffic cones, and on Saturday, in addition to the traffic cones, a large dump truck with an equipment trailer was blocking the street. This was obviously not town work being done, and it was not just closing the street for a reasonable time but for most of the day.

It was obvious that some trees were being taken down but what was also obvious was that there were no signs directing traffic, no flagmen, no safety precautions whatsoever. This was private elective work being done by a private contractor, and so the obvious questions that popped up was: Was the town of New Baltimore administration aware of this? Are these people authorized to close a public street and to redirect traffic. If so do they have a permit authorizing them to do so? Why were residents not informed? Who was liable for residents having to travel the wrong way on one-way streets for the two days, that being the only way they could get to their homes? We think it was reasonable to ask such questions and to get some clear, unabiguous answers from town supervisor Dellisanti or one of his minions. We were wrong.

The resident first fired off an e-mail to the town of New Baltimore clerk, Ms Barbara Finke, copying town supervisor Nick Dellisanti. The email reads:

Dear Clerk:
 Today, on April 24, 2015, tree removal on the Northeast, corner of Rt 144 and Madison Avenue East, the Boyd property, has been going on since this morning.
 On return from an appointment I found that Madison Avenue East was closed and blocked off with traffic cones, preventing access to New Street. In order to access New Street and home, I had to drive opposite to the direction of one way traffic on either Madison Avenue East or on New Street. There were obvious liability, safety, not to mention legal considerations when doing this.
 I have several questions that require answers immediately:
 (1) Was the town of New Baltimore notified of the tree removal operations?
(2) Is a permit required for such operations when they affect public transit?
(3) Is a permit required for operations that require closure of a public roadway?
(4) Is a permit required for redirecting traffic on a public roadway for private purposes?
(5) If a permit was required, was one applied for?
(6) If a permit was applied for and issued, when will the permit be available for inspection?
(7) What safety or monitoring precautions were provided by the town of New Baltimore during this operation?
(8) If a permit were required and none was applied for and, consequently, none issued, what are the intentions of the town of New Baltimore to follow up on this matter?
Thank you for your a.s.a.p. response.
Please confirm receipt of my below message.
Thank you!
Supervisor Dellisanti wrote back:
“I am in receipt of your e-mail and will get back to you as soon as I get the answers to your questions. Barb Finke is on vacation this week, so I will get back to you.
Nick Dellisanti “
The resident hadn’t heard from Dellisanti but at around 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 25, 2015, reported to Dellisanti:
“Good morning:
“Again, today, on April 25, 2015, at 7:30 a.m. the street is blocked by traffic cones on the Madison Avenue East/Rt 144 one-way end. There are no signs, no flagmen, no indications of detours. The only access to Madison Avenue and New Street is opposite to the posted one-way traffic.
Since I have not heard from you since my timely notification of April 24, 2015, and your response that you would get the answers to the questions I made, I have several additional questions that I would like addressed:
1) Has anyone from the town visited the concerned area, specifically, has anyone from the town board or the Highway Department visited the area.
2) Has anyone from the town made inquiries as to who is doing the work and blocking off the streets, specifically, has anyone from the town board or the Highway Department made such inquiries since my initial notification?
3) Has the town undertaken to involve law enforcement to investigate or to provide safety support during the operations going on on Madison Avenue East and in view of the traffic obstructions and diversions?
4) What documentation is being kept of any response to any of my questions.
I have photographs of the situation if you require them.
I may take the opportunity to have my observations published and to address the New Baltimore town board on this issue after having announced the presentation.
 Looking forward to a satisfactory explanation for this situation.”
Did they or didn't they need a permit to block the street for two days?

Did they or didn’t they need a permit to block the street for two days?

Following that, Dellisanti writes back:

whacky weed necklace
“Good morning. As an update, yesterday I contacted our Highway Department. Superintendent Jordan is out of town, but his deputy, Scott VanWormer said he is not aware of any permits that the homeowner is required to get from the town. I am still waiting for a response from our building inspector , and I’ve contacted the Deputy Sheriff to make an inspection this morning. 
“As soon as I get a report from the Deputy Sheriff, I will get back to you.
“Nick Dellisanti “
and
“At 9:10am the Deputy Sheriff reported to me that the tree job is complete and the road is open. 
Deputy Supervisor Ruso did stop by last night and he did say that the road was open and wood was piled up on the homeowners lawn.
“Thank you,
“Nick Dellisanti”
To which, the now perturbed, that is, pissed off resident replies:
Well, Nick, it appears the town of New Baltimore administration has fallen flat on its arse…again. You guys operate expecting to see the Easter Bunny and see Santa Claus instead, then concluding that there’s no Easter Bunny. You guys may not get it but it’s a matter of timing! You have to look for the Easter Bunny at Easter; if you look in December, you’re likely to see Santa Claus.
The question is not to investigate after the incident! You investigate when the incident is reported. If that’s how local law enforcement is going to perform, we need some changes, maybe starting with the Greene County Sheriff! Another example: When the burglary is reported we expect law enforcement to respond, not to react the day after and report that they found that no one was in the building, then concluding there was no intruder and hence no burglary. Do you follow this line of reasoning?
The point is that on two days the road was blocked off. I posed some very specific questions that I want answered; not a piss-poor report like “Well the dog was not barking when I drove by on Sunday while inspecting the parks.” (Remember that one?) Or Mr Tanner’s famous one, “I went by x times butt didn’t see a dog or hear any barking when I drove by. You’ll have to sign a complaint.” Well, when Mr Tanner finishes his shift with the DOT and just happens to drive by, it’s likely he may not find the dog outside because the owners are home from their outing!!!!
I’m getting the impression that the current New Baltimore town board elected last year is a one-term group; actually I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a one-term group judging by some of the performance. I can only work with what you hand me, Nick.
Excuses or explanations for not being able to respond like the Highway Super is on vacation or the Clerk is on vacation or ‘The lights are on but nobody’s home” does not speak well for performance. From my office window, I still see people driving up Madison Avenue East the wrong way on the one-way street. Can you tell me what’s wrong with this picture? Give it a shot. I know you can figure it out.
Please answer my specific questions and I’ll take it from there. Or don’t answer my specific questions and I’ll take it from there.
Wishing you all the best,
No sooner had the resident hit the send key than he observed several vehicles moving up Madison Avenue East going the wrong way on the one way street; several of these were residents. The only conclusion to be drawn was that they could not get down Madison Avenue East. So what’s Dellisanti and his sheriff’s deputy talking about one wonders? The resident writes:
“No sooner said than done!
The white stump removal telescope truck just drove the wrong way up Madison Avenue East!!!!
Now, that[‘s] safety in the National Historic District!
I really need better answers from you, Nick.
Thanks very much.
followed by:
“At 1:18 p.m., Madison Avenue East in the National Historic District is still blocked by traffic cones and a large trailer/dump truck apparently used to transport excavation equipment. There are no detour signs, no flagmen. Residents are being observed traveling up the wrong way on the one-way streets. What precautions are being taken to control/monitor this situation and to safeguard the safety and liabilities of residents being forced to find alternate routes, forced to ignore traffic safety postings, and forced into potential liability situations?”
and then by:
“The report you allegedly received from the deputy sheriff is grossly incorrect. This is obvious by the continuing work being done, the heavy equipment blocking Madison Avenue East and the traffic cones. Please provide the name of the deputy sheriff providing you with the grossly inaccurate report and the source of the information he received and reported to you.”
and finally by:
“Did Mr Ruso expect, when he stopped by “last night” that the workmen and the equipment would still be there? A bit idiotic, I’d say. They usually quite at around 4:30 or earlier, similar to most such occupations on a Friday. They returned on Saturday morning at around 8:30.”
This is an example of the kind of runaround a resident gets when there is clearly a problem in the Hamlet. There’s a sort of imbecilic reasoning going on in the heads of members of the town of New Baltimore board members and officers — and these characters were elected to replace the last bunch of fruitcakes — that qualify them for what the pestilence of New Baltimore, Cut-and-Paste Joan R., calls “Newbaltimorons.”
high on whacky weed

Dellisanti, Ruso: No obstruction on Madison Avenue East. Hey, man! Did you see that flying pink bison just go by? Freaky, man!

 So the message the town of New Baltimore supervisor Dellisanti and his “deputy supervisor” Jeff Ruso, together with the statement of “deputy” highway superintendent Scott VanWormer is that you can block hamlet streets whenever you like for as long as you like and you don’t need a permit. Furthermore, you can do it and the New Baltimore town supervisor Nick Dellisanti will send his “deputy supervisor” as some time during the night to verify that there’s no obstruction, and they’ll send a sheriff’s deputy who will report that there’s no work going on and the street’s clear. The real message is that we have either a bunch of pathological liars or psychopaths totally separated from reality occupying New Baltimore town hall and the Greene County Sheriff’s substation in the town hall. Either that or they think that residents in New Baltimore are either abysmally stupid or smoking whacky-weed and hallucinating. Whichever the real situation is, it is grave indeed for New Baltimore.
Give us a freakin' break, Dellisanti!The Editor You know, Nick, the one who's holding your feet to the fire.
