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.

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

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

Cast your vote at Eliminate the Coeymans P.D.

 So Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Sinking Taxpayer Dollars in the Coeymans P.D.?
Why is the Coeymans Town Board Still Approving Hiring New Employees for the Coeymans P.D.?


As we quickly approach the historic quarter-of-a-million readers mark — YES! We’ve almost reached 250,000 readers! — We can look back with pride on the many accomplishments and community improvements that this blog has instigated by providing the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk community with factual information on what’s going on in their communities. And Yes! while we have contributed to many improvements in local life, we are still flabbergasted by the ignorance and insensitivity of local elected officials to the dire straits in local government and their total lack of vision and competency.

Coeymans Today

Coeymans Today

 In the past we made the excuses for them saying that the Coeymanazis had the majority on the board, or that a senile and corrupt mayor was bullying his programs through, and putting his friends and supporters into power and cushy local jobs. But that excuse seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur since the recent elections when local Republicans won the majority over local democraps in the Town of Coeymans, the Town of New Baltimore and the Village of Ravena. We also recently examined the first six months of the new Coeymans town board in our article: New Coeymans Town Board: First six months…Same old same old. The picture is not a pretty one.

Coeymans Town Board Visions of Dumps

Coeymans Town Board
Visions of Dumps

 The Town of New Baltimore has already made considerable headway to replacing corrupt and incompetent local government with accountability and transparency. Only time will tell whether the new elected officials will allow their authority to go to their heads and become one of the villains they replaced.

But Coeymans is Still Disgusting!

The Town of Coeymans, however, doesn’t seem to have caught on. The Town of Coeymans, it appears, has replaced one set of dolts with another set of widgets. The Town of Coeymans, it seems, hasn’t learned a damned thing in the past 4-8 years about good local government. The elections last November that brought so much hope to the residents and citizens of Coeymans was apparently a sham. The new majority on  the Town of Coeymans town council is not only continuing the pitiful stupidity of the past administrations but is showing even less courage, less vision, and is following the backward track of business-as-usual. Here’s what we have observed in the past six months:

 Two years ago, when we started this blog, we published one of our first articles, the third one, actually, on March 3, 2012, with the title: “Coeymans, New York: A Nest of Hypocrisy” (click on that link to read the article). Since then we’ve published a total of 336 articles that report on local life and politics, informing local residents, citizens and taxpayers about everything they won’t get to read in the Albany Times Union a.k.a. the Albany Times Useless, or any of the Johnson Newspaper Group’s rags, especially the local love-fest rag, the Ravena News Herald a.k.a. the Ravena Nosey Hick. The Ravena-Coeymans community has been the epicenter of ridicule and scandalous reporting by the Times Union, another liberal-democrap rag that has perpetuated the downward spiral of the Albany area.

same old

Looking back on our 336 articles, we published facts on everything from the misconduct of RCS Central School District teachers, bullying in our schools, the inability of the RCS Central School District administration to achieve even a mediocre standard of education while paying ineffectual teachers outrageous salaries, and getting abysmal test scores and graduation rates. Our schools, ladies and gentlemen, are failing and so are our students. Our costs, however, are skyrocketing. The salaries make up more than 75% of the school budget, Coeymans police are harassing our students on school grounds, sports coaches are making six-figure salaries while a large proportion of residents are working two or more jobs just to make ends meet and pay their property taxes. Go figure!

Local Coeymanazi police and Village of Ravena elected officials harass and persecute local teens and youth, while doing everything they possibly could to kill the local Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center. Ex-mayor John Bruno, “trustee” Nancy Warner, and Cathy Deluca, after having paid a local insider more than $40,000 for used fitness equipment, and Josephine “Josie” Biscone-Bruno got a local man to sign a lease for premises, owned by Bob Fisk, a local insider, for the property finally killed the Teen Center. The Teen Center sold its furnishing to the Athens teen center, which has the support of the village of Athens. After all was said and done, the kids were back on the street and Ravena had another empty building, another distressed property on Main Street. Ex-mayor John T. Bruno was ousted with two of his lackeys, Martin Case, an RCS social studies teacher on reduced teaching load (but receiving a full teacher salary), and Rocco Persico, a RCS CSD school psychologist, in the March 2014 elections. Tell you a lot about RCS schools, doesn’t it?

The RCS CSD board of education has been a hot topic since day one. The spending is outrageous as are the salaries. The board of education is controlled by the teachers who are controlled by the New York State United Teachers, a division of the AFL, both unions. We have reported on incredible misconduct and conflicts of interest in the schools by the teachers and on the board of education. We’ve reported on election and poll misconduct and a number of citizens have complained directly to the New York State Department of Education and have demanded investigations. Too little too late. We’re stuck with special interests running both the schools and the board of education.
same old story

Unfortunately, most local residents get their local information and news only from the Ravena News Herald, which is a rag that reports only what’s approved and positive to the local powers to be. Almost always a week late and always saying ‘just the right thing the right way’ to paint a rosy, but false picture of what’s going on in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, always 3/4 packed with news from everywhere else, and complete with at least 8 full pages of legal notices. The Ravena News Herald, yours for a mere $1, and not fit to wipe your butt with.
In the meantime, the propaganda and misinformation fills the pages of local media. The lies abound and the frame-ups continue. Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk continues to earn its reputation as a “Nest of Hypocrisy.”

The Coeymans police department has been a subject of particular interest. Of all the local nests of corruption and misconduct, the Coeymans police department takes the first prize. When the Coeymans town board was dominated by the likes of Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan and Dawn Rogers, all recipients of special favors by the Coeymans police department and the local town justices (see our article, “From the Judge Himself: Coeymans Judge Resigns, Insider Exposes Corruption” of March 24, 2014), we demanded that Boehm, Rogers and Dolan get the boot. Boehm and Rogers were ousted last November. Dolan’s life expectancy on the Coeymans town board is very likely to end in the next elections. But the Coeymans town board is still as ineffectual as the last one! Why is that, we have to ask.

Despite public outcry to eliminate the Coeymans police department (see our article and poll at “Eliminate the Coeymans Police Department: Your Vote“, where 85% of participants demand that the Coeymans p.d. be eliminated!). Despite Coeymans town supervisor’s previous efforts to replace the Coeymans p.d. with services provided by the Albany County Sheriff’s Department that would save Coeymans more than $500,000 a year over the first four years and a projected $700,000 a year in the fifth year for law enforcement with no reduction in services! and maintaining a local presence, with local officers, and local equipment the Coeymans town board, still under the now disputed leadership of Stephen Flach, is still pouring money out of town coffers to placate the always hungry and always needy Coeymans police department. Far from eliminating it, the current Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more new hires to the already bloated and mismanaged Coeymans police department. All dodo-cop Darlington has to do is ask and the Coeymans town board rubber stamps the expenditure. Why is that, Coeymans?

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

Coeymans Town Board Congregation

With four alleged “Christians” on the Coeymans town board: Town supervisor Stephen Flach is allegedly a pastor to a local congregation of a Christian sect. Town councilman Peter Masti is an outspoken “Christian,” and the other two members of the majority, Burns and Langdon, also have some distinct “Christian” leanings, you’d expect them to be at least a little more ethical, less hypocritical, more responsible given the unmistakable condemnation of Pharisees and hypocrites in the New Testament, the guiding sacred text for most “Christians.” But somehow all that New Testament stuff has been swept under the carpet by the “Christians” on the Town of Coeymans board. We find it very interesting that four elected officials can forget their Christian ethics once they enter town hall. Be not mistaken, dear readers, we support the non-establishment clause of the US Constitution — properly interpreted and properly understood — but ethics is ethics and hypocrisy is hypocrisy, and hypocrisy is universally despised. So why is it so popular in Coeymans town hall?

Why is it that the four “Christians” entrusted with governing this town are blind to the corruption of the Coeymans police department. One of the worst villains was the adulterer (Yes! Readers! Adultery is a capital sin in the Old Testament and the New Testament; it is also a crime under New York State law!) Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, who recently “retired” or “resigned” from the Coeymans police department to become the CEO of the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs. Deluca has been a favorite subject together with his bimbo-bandit wife, Cathy Deluca, who was installed by the former Ravena village mob to be “director” of the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center (Search this blog for the poop on that one!). Supervisor Flach calls Deluca a “faithful and loyal employee” and town councilman Kevin Langdon calls Deluca a “father figure.”  Deluca, in fact, not even considering his wife’s corruption, was one of the most despicable scoundrels and liars in recent Coeymans history!!! A lousy cop, a nasty piece of work, and a virtual pig in a suit, Deluca made wild claims of working for a number of special interest organizations while at the same time working for the Coeymans police department. It seems his “Christian” friends on the Coeymans town board — aided apparently by Deluca’s access to confidential and privileged police database information on residents and citizens — was reason enough for Coeymans town elected officials to ignore citizen complaints of abuse and to “turn the other cheek.”  And the résumé and outrageous employment claims discrepancies? It appears the Coeymans town board “Christians” made a special deal with God to give Deluca the capacity to be in several places at the same time; that’s the only way to explain his résumé and his employment claims.

What is most distressing and irking to most local residents and citizens is the fact that the Coeymans town board simply bends over for the Coeymans police department. The Coeymans town board ignores the numbers and simply obeys. A Ravena village justice, Hal Warner, husband of Ravena village trustee Nancy Biscone-Warner (Old Nancy, formerly mayor Bruno’s bitch, supervises her own husband’s court! How’s that for corruption!), recently stabbed a part-time village judge and Coeymans town justice in the back, forcing the Coeymans town justice, whom Warner had trained, to resign from his position. The reason: former Coeymans town justice Phillip Crandall spoke out against the illegal and unfair practices of the Coeymans police department and the favors being shown by Coeymans town courts to special people (like members of the Coeymans town board, for example). Honesty? Integrity? Justice? Fairness? Can’t have a judge like that! So force him to resign. Coeymans living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Incest, too, has been a popular them on this blog. Just search the term “incest” on this blog and your stomach will start to turn almost immediately. Count how many times the name “Deluca” turns up. Search the word corruption and see how many times the name “Matt Miller,” “Deluca“, “Warner“, “Darlington” comes up. Enough said.

So, Coeymans, you’ve come a long way to proving how disgusting you can be and how you just love being pissed on by your elected officials. Your town board is there to ensure that your civil rights are abused by your corrupt Coeymanazi police department. Your Coeymans town board is there to ensure that your tax dollars are wasted to the max. Your town board is there to turn Coeyman’s share of the historic and beautiful Hudson valley into everyone’s dump, industrial site, and transfer station. “Coeymans: the Hudson Valley’s Dump.” Coeymans is there to change its name for a handful of coupons for a disgusting and heart-toxic sandwich: “Reubenville.” Coeymans is there for your heavy truck traffic and features some of the best and deepest potholes in the county! The Coeymans town board is right there when a local money-bags wants to put in a bridge and cross Route 144, destroying local environment and putting every driver and his family at increased risk to life and limb with heavy trucks crossing a heavily travelled road, at a poorly visible point! Coeymans again living up to its reputation as “a nest of hypocrisy.”

Well, Coeymans residents and visitors will soon see and experience what we are talking about:  You’ll soon be trying to enjoy the air, the weather, the scenery of the Hudson Valley. But you won’t be able to breathe because of the stench of the dumps and the transfer stations, and the dust the heavy  trucks will be raising on the heavily damaged local roads. If you are out for a ride or your kids are out cruising, the Coeymans police will be hiding, ready to pounce on you or them, cuffing them because they “smell pot” in their cars. And there’ll be some local putting up a dirt bank to hide the Hudson from view. Be ready. Coeymans, the home of “same ol’ same ol’.”  Ain’t life grand in Coeymans?

Anyone and everyone in the Town of Coeymans should be asking the Coeymans town board about the studies and statistics they used to decide to continue paying more than $1,000,000 a year of Coeymans taxpayer dollars on the Coeymans police department when the town could be saving at least $500,000 a year by going with the Sheriff’s Department plan to establish a satellite station in Coeymans. We might also ask what is being done in terms of investigating the many claims and complaints against the Coeymans police department to avoid costly lawsuits against the town. We can ask what the Coeymans town board is doing about the civil rights abuses and obstruction of justice charges against the Coeymans police department. Never mind. We’ll tell you: No investigation. The Coeymans town board is approving more spending and approving more hiring. That’s what. Coeymans, the Police State.

And what about your roads, water, sewerage and waste water treatment? Youth and teens? Senior citizens housing and projects? Culture and history? Civil rights and family values. Vision and planning?  Quality of life in Coeymans? Your Coeymans elected officials, all church-going “Christians”, have their own ideas of the concept of “stewardship” and ethics in Coeymans. Your “Christian” elected officials in the Town of Coeymans have a legacy to protect: Hypocrisy.

 truck_in_dust

While they’re taking your firearms and preventing firearm noise in the Town of Coeymans; while they’re arresting your kids because the Coeymanazi cops smell pot (probably on their own clothes), and then demand that they provide information they don’t have (Aren’t you outraged, parents? They’re your kids!); while youre busting your axles in local potholes or risking your lives trying to avoid them; Your lungs are being treated to clouds of toxic dust and toxic fumes, not to mention what they’ve buried in your back yard or the sewerage in your basement! If the dust doesn’t get you, the heavy trucks pulling out in front of you will. Wasting your tax dollars paying for harassment and retaliation by bully-police, crooked attorneys and judges — rewarding the criminals and punishing the inocent citizen. That’s your town at work.

Mayor Bruno’s Campaign Letter: Mail Fraud? Official Misconduct?


UPDATE
We have verified that the Bruno letter was processed through the Ravena Post Office and was delivered by U.S.P.S. personnel. We have been informed that several complaints have been sent to the regional postmaster in Albany and to the U.S.P.S. Inspector General for investigation. The NYS Board of Elections has been advised. The Office of the NYS Comptroller has been informed.

Mail Fraud or Official Misconduct?

Mayor John Bruno and his “Colleagues” Martin Case and Rocco Persico need to answer some questions about how a letter to “Occupant” got into Ravena residents’ mailboxes this past week. The letter arrived simply addressed to “Occupant” and had no stamp, no postage paid imprint, and no bulk mail permit imprint. A reliable local source not connected with neither Bruno’s or Misuraça’s campaign confirms the “rumor that the Bruno flyer was inserted in the mailboxes of residents by the mail carrier with no postage and the mail carrier advised that the Mayor had paid the post office.” This allegation has not yet been verified but the source is reliable.

We published the letter and our comments on the letter and you can read about it at Bruno Wants a Fifth “Last and Final” Term.

We’d also like an investigation into where the letter was photocopied and whether village equipment and resources were misused for Bruno’s political campaign. That should be easy enough to prove, Mr Mayor, just produce the receipt from the copying business showing that you paid for the copies and didn’t use village equipment.

If it wasn’t the United States Postal Service mail carrier who put the letters in the Ravena residents’ mailboxes, we’d also like to know who was sneaking along Ravena village streets slipping Bruno’s letter into residents’ mailboxes. Was it a village employee? We want to know!

Either way, there’s something very fishy about Bruno’s letter distribution thing.

The Misuraca campaign did everything by the book. They used stamps or bulk mailing permits, and paid for their copying. No fraud, theft or misconduct there. Just plain honesty and playing by the rules. But we all know that’s not how Mayor Bruno or his “colleagues” Martin Case or Rocco Persico work. Ravena residents, better check your wallets!

Report Fraud, Misconduct!

Report Fraud, Misconduct!

Fraud? Maybe.

Generally speaking, a regular fraud case that would normally be prosecuted by local prosecuting attorneys at the state level can become a federal mail fraud case if the U.S. Postal Service was utilized by the accused defendant to commit the fraud. The U.S. Postal Inspectors are the agency that investigates fraud and other criminal abuse of the U.S. Postal System in furtherance of committing a crime. The mail fraud federal statute is broad based and allows the federal government to prosecute fraud and other types of cases resulting in some instances of sentences of 20 years in federal prison and 30 years in federal prison if a financial institution is the victim of a fraud.

Official Misconduct

Misconduct on the part of U.S. Postal Service employees includes misuse of Postal Service computers, destruction or theft of Postal Service property, falsification of official documents and forgery, theft of funds, abuse of authority, sabotage of operations, narcotics usage or sale of drugs while on duty, and alcohol abuse.

We’ll be contacting the New York State Board of Elections, too, to inform them of this situation and advise them that we are contacting the United States Postal Service Inspector General to request an inquiry and investigation of this incident. We think you should take the same action.

Letter to the Editor: Town of Coeymans Should Merge Ravena and Coeymans Hamlet!

On occasion, some readers’ comments are just so good and so on-topic that we think they should be published on their own as free-standing articles. With this in mind, we’ll be publishing what we call “Letters to the Editor,” similar to those you’d read in any of the local rags, but much more informative and honest, of course. It’s so much better to have readers themselves do the writing, since that frees us up to do more research and uncover more facts for you.

This letter-to-the-editor is the second letter of a two-part series that we think you’ll really enjoy, especially in this pre-election run-up period in Ravena. When reading these letters, you may want to ask you why these commonsense actions haven’t been taken already by the residents of Ravena and Coeymans and the town of Coeymans. After all, Ravena and the Hamlet of Coeymans were once one single municipality. They’ve had several decades to make the division work but to date the split of Ravena and the Hamlet of Coeymans has caused only problems and bitterness. Why not go back to the merged community and have some peace and save some money? So here goes!

Letter-to-the-Editor1
Dear Editor, Dear Neighbors:

As we know, some things and some things remain the same. However, at some point, change is necessary, needed and valuable.

With this in mind, I offer the following:

The Hamlet of Coeymans seems to be in a stagnant situation, both  with a population that is not increasing and with a lack of services that its residents should have. The residents pay higher fees for both Village of Ravena drinking water and Sewer District Tax.

In contrast to what is perceived as a modern move to consolidation, I propose that the Hamlet of Coeymans petition the Village of Ravena for Annexation-that is, the residents of the Hamlet actually become ‘residents’ of the Village of Ravena with all the privileges afforded the current residents of the Village.

I offer there must be a number of caveats to this Annexation (and there are more I am sure):

1.  Coeymans Fire Company maintains its current structure and coverage area along with the current taxing authority to maintain its equipment and continue to be able to protect its area in the exemplary manner it always has.

2. The ‘new’ residents continue to have and use the current Post Office, Zip Code and address-much like Colonie and Menands residents do with regard to and with their relationships to Albany. The idea of mail delivery to those who wish to take advantage should also be investigated

 By the Annexation, users of the Village of Ravena water supply and the Sewer Customers of the District would all be under the auspices of the Village of Ravena, who would be responsible for the entire systems. Of course this would take additional resources but we can get to that later.  Additionally, all the customers of the Water and Sewer Distrcts would pay the same rates, in contrast to the current system-this means the former Hamlet residents would see a sharp drop in both rates which may equate to the now payable Village of Ravena tax!

 The new residents would also be able to take advantage of services formerly available to only the original Village residents, like brush pickup, street cleaning, Holiday Decorations, a second vendor for Cable TV Services, stump removal and the like.
 
With regard to staffing, workload and duties: I offer that the Current Village Building Department be responsible not only for the expanded Village but also for the rest of the Town of Coeymans and staff from Coeymans be moved to accommodate this. It would make sense too as Coeymans Building Department needs would go down and the Village up. I would think the same issues might be in line for the Clerk Offices, Highway Department and Court Offices too. We may even have a chance for some building/office consolidation and economic savings to boot!

 At the same time, the Annexation would allow the Town of Coeymans to explore the possibility of having it’s own municipal water and sewer systems to encourage community growth and maybe enjoy some prosperity because of it. Just imagine municipal water and sewers ‘out back’, on the northern Route9W and northern 144 ends of Town!!

 Seeing as the current Route 144  ‘home’ for the Town Highway Employees (the former Coeymans Firehouse) will not be needed any longer, it can go back to taxable property and maybe a Stewart’s or the like will show up!  The former Town occupants will have less to do as the park would be now on Village property, so the remaining employees can either move to the Town Office Building or the Highway Department as their new workstation. [Editor’s Note: Once the Town of Coeymans makes the right choice and eliminates the Coeymans police department, the space in the basement of the Town Hall can accommodate both a Sheriff’s satellite office and the highway department staff! Actually, it might make a great RC Youth and Teen Activities Center!]

 I know there is more to this than I have outlined but the idea may just have merit and is worth discussing. Why not talk about it?

Outsider

Now isn’t this what our elected town board and village board should be thinking about and proposing, instead of acting like grinning idiots every time someone wants to create a dump or a transfer station in residents’ back yards? Isn’t this what our elected officials should be envisioning instead of bickering like a coven of old hags and creating discord and anxiety, while resident’s basements are filling with water and sewerage, 100-year-old water mains are failing, village and town are hemorrhaging residents, tax base, and businesses? Come on, people, listen to the Voice of Reason and make some changes!

Get rid of Bruno and his gang-bangers, and kick the Town of Coeymans’ board in the ass and get some action!

Outsider is a frequent commenter and reader. We think he’s been in local government in the past because he knows an awful lot about the people and events. He also thinks like a good administrator should think. But we’d like to hear what YOU think about Outsider’s letter. Please leave a comment.

Letter to the Editor: Ravena Damage Control

On occasion, some readers’ comments are just so good and so on-topic that we think they should be published on their own as free-standing articles. With this in mind, we’ll be publishing what we call “Letters to the Editor,” similar to those you’d read in any of the local rags, but much more informative and honest, of course.

When reading these letters, you may want to ask you why these commonsense actions haven’t been taken already by the incumbent Bruno gang. They’ve had several decades to to it but haven’t done a damned thing. So here goes!

Letter-to-the-Editor1

To the Editor:


In response to your email, following you will find the two postings I finally posted today. Hopefully people will take a look.
I had also recently posted two others. Thanks for what you do.
A Concerned ‘Outsider’


Hi Again and Thanks for the opportunity to post here.
 
I am happy to see a contested race for Mayor of Ravena-the residents deserve it.
I am writing this-long overdue-as a possible hot potato in the current Mayoral and Village Board races.

No matter where we live, it would be great to see municipal property be returned to the tax rolls, minimize governmental use of property, see some good old fashioned common sense applied to the way our governments are run-they are ours, after all!

Close to home, I suggest the following:

 1.         The Village of Ravena Public Works Department relocate from the West Shore Street location to the area near the former landfill at the end of, I believe, Edna Avenue, where the Village maintains ownership of the property. Of course they would need to erect a building to house the equipment but that would be a small price to pay to have such desirable Rail Road siding property put back on the tax rolls and offer business a chance to have at it. Location-wise, there probably is not that much difference in miles traveled and the Edna Avenue property would be put to good use, that is, being occupied.
 
2.         The Town of Coeymans should approach the Village of Ravena petitioning for the Village to contract with the Town. Residents outside the Village could receive services already afforded Village residents, like grass and brush pickup, stump removal along the right of way and the like. The Village could use the income and the residents could use the service. The Village already has the equipment so the cost should not be too much.
 
3.         The Village should divest itself of the property on the corner of Main Street and Pulver Avenue and return it to the tax roll. The assumption here is that the property ‘belongs’ to the Village and if it does not, then the grotto-like structure there seems to indicate it does and should be removed. Nothing else need be said here.
 
4.         Both the Village and the Town should have a ‘must bid’ local law on the books for all products and services to assure the residents are getting the best value for the least money.
 
5.         The Village and the Town need to work with the County and/or the State to find a solution to the necessary for business heavy truck traffic on Main Street—nothing is being done by the Village or the Town, and it is only a matter of time before the unthinkable happens. The current Village parking lots on Central Avenue and on Main Street at least give those who have to walk the last mile to their destination a chance but a more basic idea is needed. As mentioned, the truck traffic is necessary for business, but it is surely not suited for a very narrow and curvy Main Street.
 
There’s more but later.
Again, Thanks for the posting space.
Pundit

We have to ask what the John T. Bruno and his flying monkeys have been doing all these years. We know and you know, so what’s the use of asking a question we all know the answer to? Bruno’s been in office for more than 20 years and his rat-pack in the last decade or so have done NOTHING except intimidate, tax, retaliate, drive out residents and businesses, and pad their friends’ pockets with plum jobs (like Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center a.k.a. Cathy’s Playpen) at your expense. Up until now, the town of Coeymans board has been almost as bad but the Coeymanazi police department has taken up the slack, and has been draining the town of Coeymans for a bundle, and then the crooks retire and get pensions you pay for; the Coeymanazi p.d. has even collaborated with the Bruno mob. Ravena can’t take much more without dropping into the river. That’s why Ravena voters have to put a stop to the stupidity and put Bruno, Case and Persico on the street. Next year voters can make housekeeping complete by dumping Nancy Warner and Bill Bailey. Only when you fumigate the house and get all the vermin out will there be any chance at all of revitalizing Ravena. One of the first steps to be taken by the new Ravena administration is to close that money pit, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center! and send Cathy Deluca packing or to jail (she’s still got to answer for civil rights violations and falsely reporting an incident)! That $100,000 plus can be better spent elsewhere!

Pundit is a frequent commenter and reader. We think he’s been in local government in the past because he knows an awful lot about the people and events. He also thinks like a good administrator should think. But we’d like to hear what YOU think about Pundit’s letter. Please leave a comment.

MOOSE POWER! Misuraca Moose Blanket Ravena!

What a Great Idea! Mayor Moose! Driving Through the
Village of Ravena and the Environs We were Entertained by
Moose Everywhere with
“Mayor” in Bright Yellow Painted on Their Sides!

Ravena Welcomes Mayor Moose! A Great Way to Start a Winning Campaign

Ravena Welcomes Mayor Moose!
A Great Way to Start a Winning Campaign

The William “Moose” Misuraca campaign has gotten off to a great start, judging by the number of Misuraca Mayor Moose we’ve been seeing in Ravena and in the surrounding area. If the imagination and care that went into creating these really fun and appealing campaign signs is any indication of what the Misuraca team of Bill “Moose” Misuraca, Keith Mahler and Joel Coye are offering the village of Ravena, Ravena is in for a real revitalization when they take over Ravena Village Hall in March.

Compare Mayor Moose with the Worn and Shabby Bruno Mob…

Even the Bruno-Case-Persio Signs are Shabby, Worn, Bland! Just like the shabby, worn, bland promises of the Bruno bunch.

Even the Bruno-Case-Persio Signs are Shabby, Worn, Bland!
Just like the shabby, worn, bland promises of the Bruno bunch.

We haven’t come across many Bruno-Case-Persico signs but the ones we have found are shabby, worn, and bland. Just like Bruno, Case, and Persico and their empty, pitiful promises. Promises to continue doing nothing but serving themselves and their cronies at Ravena residents’ expense. Hell! Even the snow around the signs is dirty! What does that tell you about the candidates?

What we found to be really ironic and really characterless—just like the Bruno-Case-Persico candidates, no character, no taste—is that the sign above is placed on an empty lot (like so much in Ravena under Bruno, EMPTY, and like his promises, EMPTY). But what’s even worse, the sign is placed right opposite the RCS Community Library! Yes, neighbors! Right across from the very library so brutally abused and misused by the Ravena mayor John “Black Mamba’ Bruno—a name he got by nearly destroying the cement plant when he worked there, and a name he deserves because of his venom, just like the poisonous black mamba snake—and so-called teacher Martin “Marty” Case and school psychologist Rocco Persico. That tells you a lot about these rotten apples: They abused and misused the RCS Community Library, even raised its rent more than $600 a month (paid by taxpayers!) in order to put in Cathy Deluca’s playpen, the illegal and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center, and now the bastids want to take advantage of the traffic going to and from the library. Now how underhanded, slippery, and sleazy can they get? The must be getting desperate! Hold on! Did we say “getting“?

We like Misuraca because he talks like a real person. Take one of his public statements recently:

“I am hoping with the help of some of you folks and other members of the community to restore the village, to return it to some of its former prosperity and community pride that we have seen in the past. I think a lot of us have lived here enough time to have seen that.”

And Bill “Moose” Misuraca makes the public commitment:

“There are a lot of things that we can do. I hope to have your help because it is all very new to me. I promise I’ll do my best to represent the party and everyone who lives in the village and the town.”

Be clear on one point, Moose: You may want to “represent the party and everyone who lives in the village.” You might not be able to do both, so be careful what you say. We’re listening. You just do your best to represent residents and voters. You don’t represent the party; you represent those who vote for you. We may yet ask you what the Repubican party is, when was it founded, by whom. What is the Republican party mission? Would you be able to answer those questions? Can you tell us what the Republican Party is doing for the residents of Ravena? Likely you wouldn’t have many answers, and even if you did, they wouldn’t matter. Our advice for now is: “Screw the party. Serve the people.”

But we want to know more. And make no mistake, Moose, if you’re going to be making statements like that. If you want to be Ravena’s mayor, you’re going to have to get down and make some very impressive and specific, clear commitments. Statements that we can call you on later if you forget what you said. Here’s what we’d like to see in the next couple of weeks:

First, an exclusive interview by the Ravena News Herald asking specific questions about specific and real issues of concern to the village of Ravena residents and to the town of Coeymans. Yes, we want you to tell us what your plan is for collaborating with the town of Coeymans, too. Especially, what do you plan to do to improve relations with the town of Coeymans and the hamlet of Coeymans?

Secondly, we want you to announce very soon a meet the candidates open house in the next couple of weeks. You have the ideal situation: Pick a day when most Ravena residents are home and not at work and open the Halfway House Tavern for the afternoon and early evening, inviting Ravena residents to come in have a snack on the house, and the opportunity to sit down individually, face to face, one on one, with the candidates. Residents and candidates, together, informally having a chat about real issues, like water billing, DEC fines, open government, youth and teen affairs, accountability and transparency in local government, avoiding conflicts of interes and special interest groups interference in government, the problem of patronage and favoritism in Ravena government, village revitalization. Residents name it and put it on the table, you and Joel and Keith answer.

It's What Elects You.

It’s What Elects You.

At your meet the candidate open house we’d also recommend having question cards or sheets for residents to write down their concerns and what they’d like done in Ravena. They’d have the opportunity to ask anonymously or, if they provide their contact details, you and the other candidates would guarantee a personal response before the elections. How’s that for a change?

Youth and teens in Ravena-Coeymans have gotten the dirty end of the stick in recent years. We’d like to know specifically what you and your fellow candidates plan to do for youth and teens in Ravena.

We also want to know what you plan to do about the many recent Notices of Claim filed against the Village of Ravena, several of which specifically relate to Cathy Deluca and the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, and her violation of protected civil and constitutional rights, her alleged falsely reporting an incident, obstruction of justice and conspiracy, as well as myriad other Notices of Claim that are still capable of becoming embarassing and expensive lawsuits. The Bruno administration’s standard procedure is to ignore them, hoping they’ll go away. They won’t. We guarantee that.

We’d also like to know how you intend to sanitize Ravena village hall, getting rid of the dead wood (the job-givaways), the crooks (well, once you beat Bruno, the rats will abandon ship, hoping to escape prosecution) and, of course the illegal money pits (the Ravena Health and Fitness Center) and the illegal “civil service” leeches (like Cathy Deluca) who have already gotten the village of Ravena into a heap-o-trouble.

Finally, and something that’s been on all our minds for several years now is: How do your plan to stop the hemorrhaging of families and businesses from the village of Ravena and the surrounding area? What is your idea for inaugurating the revitalization of Ravena over the long-term? We know that the present Bruno regime has put Nancy Biscone-Warner and Cathy Deluca in charge of putting together a handful of bandaid events, calling them revitalization, but we want to know if you have a plan, not a cookout and a health fair, a PLAN, something that will really have a gradual, continuous, positive long-term effect on Ravena. We’re not talking necessarily about so-called “growth and development”, the kind of stuff that destroys the character and charm that could be Ravena—under real, committed and visionary leadership, but a shot in the arm to once again make Ravena a lovely, charming, attractive village on the Hudson.

We’d like to call for the same from incumbent Ravena mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno—and we’ll be in the front row with our list—to do the same. Yeah! Like that’s gonna happen…

That, Mayor Moose, is what’s going to sell you and your team. That’s what’s going to confront you when you take office. But that’s what we want to know NOW!

We have a good gut feeling, Moose, that you’re a great candidate and will make a great mayor of Ravena. We think you’re up to the task. We think you can take the challenge. All we ask is that you confide in us and give us something solid to hold onto, not the same vomit that Bruno, Case, and Persico have delivered since Day 1, and continue to deliver. Give Ravena Real reason to HOPE, Moose!

Business as Usual or Change for the Better: Vote Now!

 


Village of Ravena Elections for mayor and two village council seats will be held on
Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
Why wait? At the end of this article you can vote for our candidates of choice for seats on the Ravena Village Council, or make your own recommendations. Help Save Ravena!


Our Worst Fears Were Confirmed:
Bruno, Case, and Persico Are Running Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico to Run Again!

Bruno, Case, Persico
to Run Again!

You Can Stop Them!

Tucked neatly away in the Ravena News Herald is the news we’ve all been waiting for…like the plague: Ravena mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno, Martin “Marty the Loser” Case, and Rocco “Seatwarmer” Persico have the gall to run again for village of Ravena public office. They apparently haven’t done enough damage to the village of Ravena and want a second shot at it!

Incumbent Ravena Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and his monkeys in Ravena Village hall have done their best to put Ravena into bankruptcy in every conceivable way: Secret deals with CSX (and then making believe they fixed things by planting a couple of trees), problems with sewerage, defaulting on village bills, creation of an illegal and failing Ravena Health and Fitness Center, persecution of local youth and teens, violations of protected civil rights, suppression of free speech, crooked financial transactions with insiders, handing out jobs to favorites, abusing the community institutions, and the list could go on and on and on.

Ravena Needs Alternatives!

According to documents we’ve managed to get our hands on: The Notice of Democratic Caucus has gone out…that’s where the democrat candidates would normally be nominated…but the caucus is to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 27, 2014 at the Ravena Fire House, 116 Main Street Ravena. But the candidate have already been selected, at least according to the last issue of the Ravena News Herald. The three incumbent monkeys—Bruno, Case and Persico— are running again. UNLESS Ravena democrats show up and speak out to nominate alternatives. Lord knows Ravena needs alternatives!


Sidebar:

In the Meantime a New Warner-Deluca Scam

Bruno's Vixen

Have you heard? It must be election time! The Village of Ravena has recently sent out letters to “selected” “Main Street Property Owners” and “merchants” (Are there any left on Main Street?!?) but neglects other Ravena property owners and  residents having a stake in the future of the village of Ravena. The letter is inviting those selected property owners and “merchants” to attend a roundtable discussion and planning meeting to “revitalize” Main Street. What’s wrong with the rest of Ravena? You might well ask. But guess who are the contact persons for this “Centennial Committee”! Insiders, of course: Someone has put Cathy Deluca of Ravena Health and Fitness Center fame in as “Centennial Committee Chair,” and her sidekick, mayor Bruno’s “biatch”, Nancy Warner has been installed as a “Centennial Committee Member,” and sign the secret letter.

 When was this Centennial Committee established and with what village resolution? Who are the other members of the so-callled Centennial Committee, or is it just the dirty duette, Deluca and Warner?

Cathy Deluca Note the ARANY Sweater! (No Special Interests Here!)

Cathy Deluca
Note the ARANY Sweater!
(Probably wearing CSX panties, too!)

old blond stripper smIf you read this and suddently red flags go up and you have an anxiety attack, and feel overly suspicious, you really ought to. Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner are the very ones who met behind closed doors to secretly spend more than $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipement from another insider. They, Bruno and Warner (Deluca already was promised the job as director of the fitness center) harassed the RCS Community Library out of the space that was decided to accommodate the fitness center, and then allocated more than $105,000.00 of taxpayer money to fund the fitness center for the 2013-2014 budget year. In the meantime, Bruno and Warnerand their sockpuppets on the Ravena village council, Case, Bailey and Persico, went ahead and appointed Cathy Deluca as “director” of the fitness center paying her $30,000 in salary plus generous benfits. We believe the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, like two of Deluca’s other fitness businesses is a loser. Even before the fitness center opened, Cathy Deluca opened her big mouth and got the village of Ravena a couple of new lawsuits (Remarkably, this legal situation was reported in the Ravena News Herald!)!Ravena Mayor John Bruno and his monkeys Martin CaseWilliam Bailley, and Rocco Persico, also joined forces with Nancy Warner in persecuting Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens in the “Gazebo Fiasco,” again attracting another Notice of Claim and lawsuit for violation of protected rights and civil rights. Bruno and Warner ultimately forced the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center to close its doors when they convinced insider Robert Fisk not to renew the Center’s lease. In shortl, they threw Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens out on the streets, screwed a local do-gooder, and created another distressed property on Ravena’s Main Street. 

Now they, the Insiders Club in Ravena Village Hall, want to reinvent themselves as the Ravena Centennial Committee, headed by two arch-villains Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner, to “rejuvenate” Main Street Ravena. They’re the very ones who made Mainstreet Ravena a ghost town! And who’s going to pay for this “rejuventation?” We predict that this is just another smoke-and-mirrors scam that will benefit only the Ravena Insiders Club and no one else. If you fall for it…

Bovine bimbos Deluca and Warner, the so-called Centennial Committee are even so arrogant that they ask “invitees” to R.S.V.P. by January 27, 2014 (the telephone number given in the letter to call to R.S.V.P.: 756-5544, the number to Cathy Deluca’s Playpen a.k.a. the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center!!!).

The Ravena Centennial Committee Mainstreet Revitalization farce will meet on Thursday, January 30, 2014, at 5:30 p.m. in the Ravena Village Courtroom. Please note also that the time, 5:30, on a Thursday has been selected because it will ensure that the fewest possible working people will be able to get to the farce. That’s one sure way of eliminating a good portion of the community. And these two trollettes are supposed to orchestrate a Centennial livestock show? Moo! To you, too, Deluca, Warner!

Ravena Centennial Committee Deluca & Warner

Ravena Centennial Committee
Deluca & Warner

We say any Centennial Celebration is a public affair from the planning to the execution. Any Ravena Main Street Rejuvenation is a public project and the public, not just a select group of property owners and merchants, selected by Guess Who!?! Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! Any committee should be made up of public representatives not just Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner! How dare they make Ravena and its village Hall their private playpens! How dare mummy mayor John Bruno hand over Ravena to those two aging vixens to be their private sandbox. How dare Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warner exclude thepublic from their little party…AGAIN!!! (Remember the Ravena Health and Fitness Club fiasco!) Those two middle-aged megalomaniacs need to be put in their proper place!


 It’s Official: CSX

We knew it! They're CSX!

We knew it! They’re CSX!
Official Confirmation by 2 RHFC Members.

Back to alternatives….

Anyone who has been following this blog and reading our articles knows that we know what’s going on in this region. We watch, listen, receive intelligence, and report to our readers what they won’t get in the local sockpuppet media like the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, the Daily Mail, the Albany Times Useless. and others (most notably of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation and Hearst Corp.).

Our most recent poll confirmed several very important facts: The John Bruno regime is nearing its shameful end, and the Coeymans Police Department’s days are numbered (is that why Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is allegedly planning to retire at the end of the month, or is that just empty rumor? But why is he driving a RCS school bus?]

Coeymans Republican Party Chairperson Barbara Cumm has been sitting on her thumbs for too long and maybe the Republican Party should replace her before she does some real damage. We know the three flying monkeys are running again on the dem ticket but what are the Ravena Republicans doing all this time? We haven’t heard of any potential opponents to the Bruno mob from the Republican side. What’s the big secret? (We all can expect Tom Dolan to fall on his face again, as his past performance as a dem candidate and dem chairperson have been less than glorious.)

[Editor’s Note: We would recommend that the Republican Party name Barbara Cumm as Republican Party Chairperson emeritus, and get a real chairperson on board who will shake things up in Coeymans. So far Cumm has been dozing off and playing senile political games in the area. Retire Cumm and get someone with some cojones on board to clean up the Coeymans political scene. Stop playing a loser’s game!]

The Bruno mob seem to think they have the democrat ticket in the bag; the Republicans are quiet as mice. But we don’t care about labels like democrat or Republican; we care about what’s happening in the community, and the damage that the Ravena regime under Bruno and Warner have inflicted through their greed and nastiness. So we looked at the situation and looked at a couple of local figures who are honest and community-service minded residents who should be drafted to fill the seats in Ravena Village hall. Here’s your chance to vote in advance and let your voice be heard. The Bruno-Warner mob hates these choices, which makes them even more desirable. If Bruno and Warner hate you, you must be honest. Perhaps you’ll influence the outcomes in a positive way.

Help Save Ravena!

Help Save Ravena!

Vote below in each of the polls. It’s anonymous and you will be able to vote only once. Your vote counts here, too!
Once you vote in the polls below, click on “View Results” (bottom left corner of each poll) to see the overall results!

Are you a Dem or Rep, or Other?

Ronald K. Houghtaling Jr. for Mayor. A very experienced, articulate, former Coeymans town supervisor, who can make good thing happen! Mr Houghtaling knows his way around government and business. He also knows how dirty the local politics is and still keep his hands clean. Vote here for Mr Houghtaling for Ravena mayor.

Laszlo Polyak for Ravena Councilman. Mr Polyak is a local resident and property owner who has been an outspoken advocate in defense of RCS CSD students and local property owners’ issues, as well as a crusader for honest, accountable government. Mr Polyak’s credentials are impressive, too. The Coeymanazis hate him and have done everything they could to stymie his bids for public office in the past. Mr Polyak has an unparalleled knowledge of Ravena and the players, and their histories. If the Bruno mob  hate him and fear him so much, he belongs in Ravena village hall!. Vote here for Mr Polyak for Ravena village councilman.

Michael Fisher for Ravena Councilman. Mr Fisher is a local resident, parent, property owner and, if you’ve been awake through all of the hullabaloo about the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the persecution of Ravena-Coeymans youth and teens at the hands of Bruno and Warner and the present village council, you’ll know that Mr Fisher is a self-less community-spirited individual. He serves on the Coeymans rescue squad and fire department and invested untold personal resources to get Ravena-Coeymans kids off the street, and into a safe, supervised recreation center. That all ended when Bruno and Warner did their worst to sabotage Fisher’s efforts and works, and the Coeymans police (Deluca and Darlington?) played their intimidation/retaliation games.

Bruce Roberts for Ravena Councilman. Mr Roberts already has experience on the Ravena village council but was unseated by insider action. He held the trusteeship now abused by Nancy Warner.

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Ravena Mayor Known!

Finally, Vote Here to Make your Choices for Village Council Seats Known!

(The percents in this poll show the voters’ first choice (highest percent), second popular choice, and third popular choice in descending order of percents. The percentages must add up to 100%. These figures do not show the percent of total votes the candidate would receive, just his popularity in terms of percent.)

Please note that none of the “candidates” proposed above have not been consultated about their willingness to ru,n or even if they would run. We drafted them because we feel they’d do well and the community would benefit from their experience and integrity. With your help, we can work to convince them that they should respond to the community’s invitation to serve. Of course, if you have other recommendations, please let us know and we’ll be pleased to post them and get our readers’ inputs regarding your choices, too!
