New Baltimore: Brooks says she will leave clerk’s office

Smalbany Blog Puts on the Pressure and We Get Results!

In an article appearing in the Daily Mail today, on Thursday, March 6, 2014, reporter Jim Planck reports that highly criticized New Baltimore Town Clerk, Janet Brooks, has submitted her letter of resignation to the New York Secretary of State. According to the report, “Brooks, who has been on the job for nine-and-a-half years and was just re-elected to another two-year term in November, submitted her letter of resignation Wednesday to New York State Secretary of State Cesar Perales.’

Resigns After Criticisms of Abuse of Public Office

Janet Brooks Resigns as New Baltimore Town Clerk
Town Hall Saves A Bundle in Pain-in-the-Ass Relief

Brooks was re-elected last November as incumbent to serve another term as New Baltimore town clerk but quickly became the subject of a controversy suggesting misuse of public office, corruption, and generally abuse of the public’s trust when it surfaced that she was collecting a full-time salary and putting in only part-time in the office. According to one reliable report, Brooks was at work only 8 days in the month of January 2014. In addition, Brooks actually had two deputies doing her work for her.

We reported extensively on Brook’s alleged misuse of her office and the fact that she balked when the newly elected New Baltimore Town Board entertained a resolution to establish fixed hours for the office of the town clerk. See our article at “If you want me to do my job, you’ll have to pay me more…”.

Canned Response: “careful consideration of (her) health issues” Hemorroids?

In the Planck article, Brooks is reported to have claimed “careful consideration of (her) health issues” was the reason for her resignation. That canned statement is second only to disgraced politicians wanting to spend more time with their families. We have a burning question: Wasn’t Ms Brooks aware of her “health issues” last November, when she ran for re-election, hoping to continue her scam on New York State and New Baltimore Taxpayers? Or did thes “health issues” crop up with the discovery of her abuse of public office, and she found herself on the hotseat with a bad case of hemorrioids having to answer some sticky questions. Yeah, that’s it: Brooks’ health issue is hemorrhoids, Right?

JUST RESIGN!!!

JUST RESIGN!!!

Regardless of the phony reasons for the resignation, Brooks gave notice that the resignation will take effect in two weeks, on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. This means that the office of town clerk for New Baltimore will accordingly be on the ballot for the next general election on Nov. 4.

New Baltimore Town Supervisor Dellisanti Talks Some Shite…

What irks us is that newly elected Town of New Baltimore supervisor, Nick Dellisanti, was less than candid when commenting on Brook’s and her service. The Planck reports Dellisanti to have said:

‘Brooks provided valued service to the community.’
“She was there nine-and-a-half years,” said Dellisanti. “She served the public well.”
***
“She did a very good job,” he said, “and she’ll be missed.”

That just might explain Mr Dellisanti's lack of candidness.

That just might explain Mr Dellisanti’s lack of candidness.

C’mon, Dellisanti, stop buttering the cabbage and have some balls! Tell the media what you think! We would have expected a bit more of honesty from Mr Dellisanti, given that his team was instrumental in exposing Brooks’ misconduct in office and given the fact that this blog published a scathing article on Brooks’ misconduct and made its own inquiries with the legal department of the Office of the State Comptroller and the Examiners’ Office specifically citing the Brooks case. The Comptroller’s legal deparment has been “looking into” our inquiries. But to be very clear: according to our information, our investigations, our inquiries, Ms Brooks provided a valued service to herself and her pension over the “nine-and-a-half years.” Ms Brooks served herself well and “did a very good job” of that. And yes, Mr Dellisanti, we’re sure you’ll miss Ms Brooks…like an inflamed hemorroid!

After March 19, when Brooks formally and physically ceases to be New Baltimore Town Clerk, her personally hand-picked insider appointee who has been Brooks’ “first deputy clerk”, Marjorie Loux of Hannacroix, another insider player, will perform the clerk’s duties during that period, as NYS Town Law requires that a town’s first deputy clerk “shall possess the powers and perform the duties of the town clerk … during a vacancy in the office of town clerk.”The law also requires the “first deputy” to have the knowledge and skills to perform, and to have taken an oath of office. Has that ever been done? Can we really trust a Brooks appointee to do an honest job, considering Brooks’ history? That’s an interesting question only the incumbent town board of New Baltimore will be responsible for answering until a new clerk is elected in November.

Loux has previously served as deputy clerk under Brooks’ predecessor, Barbara Weeks, a star performer who died suddenly, leaving the positon vacant, and the town also has a second deputy clerk, Diane Jordan (wife of controversial highway superintendent “Do-Me-A-Favor” Denis Jordan), both factors which will undoubtedly complicate the coming transition, and certainly will not resolve any of the tensions. But the question does arise, does the town of New Baltimore need all these deputies? Hell NO! What we need is a clerk who does the job and maybe a deputy who can step in if necessary, but less than part time and optionally compensated for that time unless adjustments can be made by substituting another employee and allowing comp time. That’s a legal issue that needs to be examined by the board and the town attorney. But now’s the time to start considering candidates, possible deputies for appointment, whether the deputy will be compensated, and other associated issues. Now, not at the last minute.

Well, now that Ms Brooks has announced her resignation, she’ll have more time to grind away at the organ (Whose? Now, now!) at the troubled New Baltimore Reformed Church (check out our article on the NBRC at New Baltimore Reformed Church: Slow Agonizing Death), where her pal Susan Kerr is mounting (Oh! My!) her offensives on patriotism the flag) and the American male domination of…well, they’re dominating something, aren’t they? You’ll have to sit in on one of her sermons to find out what in hell they’re dominating. Damned if we know!

The investigation must continue beyond any resignation and the inquiry must include whether there was criminal activity involved. The fat lady hasn’t sung yet; it ain’t over, pals.

Things are looking good in New Baltimore these days. Another cockroach is out of town hall. Things are looking mighty bleak for New Baltimore Democratic Committee chair Diane Lewis, now that her party’s fixtures are being scrapped one-by-one and removed from New Baltimore town hall as the corruption is exposed. Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris are next. Stay tuned for our report on their corruption in office.

Swearing In of Elected Officials…It’s Still a Public Ceremony, Isn’t It?

The Poll is Closed. A total of 656 Responses
Stay tuned for the final results!
Thank you for your participation!


On November 5th, 2014, the Power Structures In the Town of Coeymans and the Town of New Baltimore Were Reversed. That Was a Good Thing.

Voters in the Town of New Baltimore booted incompetent town supervisor Susan O’Rorke out of the town hall and replaced her with a competent and community-oriented man, Nick Dellisanti. Also defeated was campaign sign vandal/thief Janet Angelis of the Angelis-Schrauf partnership (Hilary Schrauf was defeated). Jeff Ruso was voted to be a town council member, as was Shelly VanEtten. Janet Brooks was re-elected as town clerk and Diane jordan, wife of New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan, was elected to be Town of New Baltimore tax collector.

BEDBUGS STILL IN NEW BALTIMORE TOWN HALL

Demand a RECALL Vote!!!


If New Baltimore Town Clerk Janet Brooks and Tax Collector Diane Jordan Can’t Show Up for the Public Swearing In, Maybe Voters Should Let Them Stay Away…Permanently!!!
RECALL them both and put people in office who care enough to show up!

If New Baltimore Highway Superintendant Denis Jordan doesn’t like following Town of New Baltimore Purchasing Policies and the Law, and if Jordan Doesn’t Like Treating all Taxpayers and Residents Equally and Fairly, RECALL Him. Put Someone in the Superintendent’s Office Who Cares!!!


The November 5, 2013, general elections are all old news, we know. But we’re interested in what’s going on behind the scenes and would like you to know, too. The 2014 Recall Elections are the new news.

Campaigns and elections are public spectacles. The candidates strut their stuff and play show and tell, trying to convince the voting public that he or she is the right choice. Electioneering and campaign criminality, as we’ve all observed, is not beneath some of the aspiring “public servants.” Those who lost the most recent elections found out that sabotage and campaign criminality just won’t be tolerated anymore by voters. O’Rorke, Angelis, Schrauf got the thumbs down.

But in past articles we warned that if you don’t get all the bedbugs and roaches out of the house at once, you still have a bug problem. That’s what seems to be happening in New Baltimore as we write. Voters didn’t clean house and left a couple of bedbugs, members of the O’Rorke clique—they’re the ones who will be creating problems. You betcha!

O’Rorke, Angelis, Schrauf may not have been elected but they’re still conspiring to make life difficult for those who voters did confirm as their choices to govern the town of New Baltimore.

Janet Brooks and Diane Jordan were real eager to campaign and go public to get the voters to keep them in office. But they were conspicuously absent from the swearing in ceremony at the New Baltimore Town hall on January 1st. What’s worse is no one knew then or knows for certain when or where Brooks or Jordan were sworn in, or who swore them in. They’re not in office until they’re sworn in. Furthermore, wouldn’t you think that it would have been appropriate if all the newly elected town officials were together to be sworn in as a team? Apparently, Brooks and Jordan had other plans. We’re wondering if these two leftovers from the corrupt and inept O’Rorke machine were sending a message to the new supervisor and board that they, Janet Brooks and Diane Jordan, were going to be troublemakers. We find that to be a comic alliance, because Janet Brooks generally treated Diane Jordan with a certain snootiness, even disdain; Brooks even made certain that Jordan got an office far from Brooks’ office (seems there was allegedly some question of hygiene?). So, we’d like to know where Brooks and Jordan were at the public swearing-in ceremonies. The voting public had a right to witness the swearing in of their elected officials…ALL OF THEM, MS BROOKS and MS JORDAN, included!!!

The deeper dark secrets of the O’Rorke corruption in town hall are slowly but surely coming to light. First there was the New York State Comptroller’s audit that creamed O’Rorke and her crew; then there was O’Rorke’s idiotic attempt to explain the mismanagement and discrepancies. We do need to note that none of the double-talk explained anything about why proper records were not kept and even the town’s own purchasing policies were violated! We have an unconfirmed report that it’s even worse than all of that. Our facts are unverified as we write but as soon as we get solid confirmation, we’ll report.

BECAUSE WE CAN!

BECAUSE WE CAN!

The good news is that Susan O’Rorke is not off the hook. Neither are Lisa Benway or Christopher Norris. They may all be facing charges. David Wukitsch, former attorney for the town of New Baltimore (YES! You read correctly. One of our New Year’s resolutions has already come true: the New Baltimore town council has FIRED David Wukitch! Now it’s Coeymans turn to give that shyster the boot!) may also be vulnerable for discipline.

Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris' Public Meeting Procedure

Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris’ Public Meeting Procedure

O’Rorke, Benway and Norris had a perverse idea of what the “public” in “public meeting” meant and suppressed public comment during town meetings. The O’Rorke crew even voted to discontinue the rules of procedure for town meetings, and their democrat ouija board master Diane Lewis praised them for that fascist move. The new town board led by Supervisor Nick Dellisanti wants to encourage public participation in town government and has resolved to provide time for public questions and comment both before and after the board business. According to one member, the public comes in to the meeting with concerns, comments and questions and the board is interested in hearing these. Then, after the board’s discussion of pending business, the public may have concerns, comments and questions and should have the opportunity to address those to the board, too. Each comment will be noted and a response will be prepared to ensure that every citizen gets the dignity of a response. Dellisanti, Ruso, VanEtten passed the resolution. THANK YOU! Mr Supervisor Dellisanti, Mr Councilman Ruso and Madame Councilwoman VanEtten.

Benway and Norris voted against it. Why did Benway and Norris vote against a resolution that would allow voters, residents, citizens to tell their elected officials what they’re thinking?

Mr Denis Jordan, the elected New Baltimore Highway Superintendent, was deeply involved in the financial mismanagement scandal uncovered by the New York State Comptroller’s auditors. Jordan was the beneficiary of many of the corrupt practices of the O’Rorke administration. He also doesn’t think it’s necessary for a public official to keep records of anything like purchases, quotations, purchase orders, etc. Mr Jordan also thinks that his job is to do his friends favors and forget the rest of the town. Mr Jordan and his crew think it’s OK to plow for friends but that they shouldn’t plow the Fire Department. Mr Jordan has a very odd view of his job and responsibilities.

GOT SAND? Jordan species of Bedbug

GOT SAND?
Jordan species of Bedbug

It has been procedure in the past to provide town residents with small quantities of sand, if requested. Recently during the storms a resident visited the New Baltimore town garage with a bucket and requested Mr Jordan to provide him with some sand. Mr Jordan refused. His reason: Allegedly the new administration is asking Jordan to request salt purchases using the proper paperwork required by town purchasing policies (ignored by O’Rorke, Benway, Norris, Jordan and Mr Wukitsch) so Mr Jordan is taking out his anger and retaliating against residents by refusing to provide sand. Does that make sense?

Well, a town employee heard Mr Jordan refuse and contacted Supervisor Dellisanti, explaining the incident. Supervisor Dellisanti immediately authorized the sand request and Jordan had to comply. Apparently Jordan was not very happy. Too bad!!!

Our advice to Ms Janet Brooks, New Baltimore Town Clerk, Ms Diane Jordan, New Baltimore Tax Collector, and Mr Denis Jordan, New Baltimore Highway Superintendent: GET WITH THE PROGRAM and WORK WITH THE TEAM or GET READY FOR A RECALL ELECTION!!! YOUR CHOICE!!!

And this time around, the biased and unbalanced treatment by the Hudon-Catskill Newspaper Group and the Johnson Newspaper Corporation won’t be able to ignore the best candidates like they did in November 2013. And there won’t be any biased soppy coverage by Ms Jessica Mosier, the O’Rorke worshipping sockpuppet covering New Baltimore for the unfair and unbalanced Ravena News Herald and the Greene County News, both owned by the Johnson News Paper Corp. (The fact that Mosier is still working for the Johnson Newspapers is clear testimony that John Johnson and his Albany Times Union reject Vince Vinciguerra condone biased and unfair coverage!) This time ’round, come a Recall Election,  it’s gonna be fair, balanced, and legal!

Do ya have them, Bucca? Then show them!

Do ya have them, Bucca? Then show them!

Finally, former Greene County DA Terry Wihelm has left the DA’s office to be a judge. He’s left the Greene County DA’s office in the hands of Charles A. Bucca, who was sworn in on January 2 to be Greene County acting DA. Our initial impression of Bucca is that he’s wishy-washy and really deserved to be “assistant” DA. If he’s really so tough on crime and is worthy of being considered to fill the shoes of District Attorney, he’d better be big enough to tackle local corruption and elected officials’ ethics violations (or hiding his own) rather than picking on the small-fry and the poor—the coward’s way of showing he’s “tough”—, he’ll take the challenge offered to him by some newly elected, ethical local officials and launch a full-scale, big-guns investigation into local government corruption. Maybe he’d like to start with the corruption exposed by the New York State Comptroller’s auditors in their audits of the Town of New Baltimore financial mismanagement on former supervisor O’Rorke’s watch and with the conspiratorial cooperation of councilpersons Lisa Benway and Christopher Norris, together with Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan. Yeah! That would be a good start for Mr Bucca to show he’s got some balls.

(We’d make the same challenge to Albany County DA Soares but it would be useless. Soares should be investigated, prosecuted and convicted himself! Soares is in the pockets of the corrupt officials and is in bed with them. But in Albany County, that’s business as usual. After all, the NYS legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo spend their time in Albany, don’t they?)

New Baltimore Town Board to Be Roasted!

Thank you in advance for your participation!


New Baltimore Town Hall on Monday, December 9, at 7:00 p.m.

Don’t Miss the Roasting of the O’Rorke Town of New Baltimore Town Board.

What's that you said, Suz?

What’s that you said, Suz?

Special Menu Items Will include Chris Norris and Lisa Benway Crispy Critters in a Brown Sauce!

Lame-duck, defeated New Baltimore Supervisor Susan O’Rorke and two town board lackies, Chris Norris and Lisa Benway, will explain their personal recipes for roast pork. You know, the ones Denis Jordan and selected vendors have learned to enjoy these past years. Susan O’Rorke will try to squirm out of her putrid corner to explain why she and lackies Chris Norris and Lisa Benway approved so many illegal and unlawful expenditures of New Baltimore taxpayers’ money. David Wukitsch, New Baltimore town attorney will be available to explain why the residents of New Baltimore should not petition the Committee on Professional Standards to suspend his license to practice law or at lease sanction and censure him for legal malpractice while advising the O’Rorke monkeys.

Not Any More!!! Be at the New Baltimore Town Hall and Find Out What Happened to the Bacon!

Not Any More!!!
Be at the New Baltimore Town Hall and Find Out What Happened to the Bacon!

The New York State Comptroller’s auditors found some very serious misuse of taxpayer money and some very suspicious purchasing practices made by the Susan O’Rorke/Chris Norris/Lisa Benway trio. Denis Jordan, an elected town official and town highway superintendent was at the center of most of the abuse of public office. So what do O’Rorke, Norris, Benway do with New Baltimore taxpayer money? They give Jordan a raise!

Concerned residents and taxpayers of New Baltimore intend to show up at the December 9, 2013, New Baltimore Town Board meeting to demand that O’Rorke, Norris, and Benway explain their mismanagement and violation of town policies and New York State Law. They will have to explain why criminal charges should not be brought against them.

Mr Jordan will have to explain why he got the raise and why he was involved in so many illegal purchases. We already know from Jordan’s, Benway’s and Norris’ own statements put out in a recent campaign letter supporting O’Rorke that Jordan and O’Rorke are very close. So they’re so close they, O’Rorke, Norris, and Benway vote to give their friend Jordan a pay raise. Nice!

And where was New Baltimore town attorney David Wukitsch when all of this illegal crapola was going on? He’s being paid by New Baltimore taxpayers to keep things legal. Davey was sitting on his muffin giving illegal advice for unlawful practices. We think New Baltimore taxpayers should demand that the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, Committee on Professional Standards review David Wukisch’s conduct in his role as New Baltimore town attorney and recommend that he be suspended or at least sanctioned and censured for his legal malpractice!

In the meantime, the only right thing for Denis Jordan to do is to refuse the pay raise and let the new New Baltimore Town Board vote on it. If the new New Baltimore town board thinks he deserves a raise after careful consideration of his past performance and record, we’ll stand by them. But in the meantime, Jordan should not be handed a raise for kissing O’Rorke’s ass at New Baltimore taxpayers’ expense.

New York Governor Mario Cuomo and his Attorney General Eric Schneiderman are so hot and bothered by public corruption, let’s see what they do about radical local government corruption like we have in New Baltimore and in the town of Coeymans! Do their wars on corruption in public office  target only their political opponents and the other party, are their threats and campaigns just smoke-and-mirrors, dogs-and-ponies? We’ll see. They’ll see when they get the numbers from the voting booths!

In the meantime, we citizens have to ensure that the crooks and the corrupt in public office get what they deserve, and lose what they don’t deserve.

Coeymans: They’ve Been Rejected, Rebuked, Rebuffed but Take Revenge on the Community

Voters ousted the majority of the scoundrels on the Coeymans town council (Tom Dolan’s still around but very alone; he’s out next time) and on the New Baltimore town council, while rejecting their cronies. Almost cleaned house. But those left in power for the next two months are taking their revenge before they have to hand over their house keys!

YOU VOTED THEM OUT!! But they're Mad and Mean, and they're going to punish you before they leave!
YOU VOTED THEM OUT!!
But they’re Mad and Mean, and they’re going to punish you before they leave!

You’d think they’d have some dignity, and accept the voters’ decision. Voters simply didn’t want their kind any more. So do you think they’d accept the message and leave with dignity, or show some good will in their last two months in office. Hell NO! They’re going to do all the damage they can before they handover the keys to town hall. They’re going to punish voters for giving them the boot!

Revenge of the Rejects

The Coeymans dems under the misguidance of loser Tom Dolan ran Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s babe, Michelle Maddage, for town clerk. They played Maddage for a circus clown, and she played right along with Dolan, Boehm, and Darlington and danced like their cute little monkey, and ran for a town office for which she had absolutely no qualifications. She lost pitifully! But Maddage was just a tool. You see, Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington had cut a deal that would place his wife, now a secretary in that racist, pandering, incompetent Albany County DA David Soares’ office, in the Coeymans town clerk’s office as a part-time employee. Imaging if the plan had succeeded: If Maddage had by some stroke of misfortune, won and became Coeymans town clerk, she would hire Darlington’s wife in the town clerk’s office. That would put dodo-cop Gregory Darlington in charge of the clerk’s office and in control of any information leaving town hall, because Maddage would be taking orders from Darlington, his wife, and from Tom Boehm and Tom Dolan! Talk about a police state! Talk about turning town government into a family business!!! Voters by the grace of a merciful God put a quick stop to those diabolical plans.

But just because Maddage and the Darlingtons lost the bid to control the Coeymans town clerk’s office. And just because Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers got booted from their playpens on the Coeymans town council doesn’t mean that they’re finished screwing the citizens of the town of Coeymans. They still have 2 months to do a hell of a lot of damage and they’re mad and mean. They’re going to pull all the stops now that they have nothing to lose. They’re going to punish voters for making the right choices.

Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson, as inept as he was and continues to be, has botched up so many investigations and probably holds the record for complaints against the Coeymans police department has been promoted to the rank of sergeant in the Coeymans p.d.!

What? You Promoted Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson?!?

What? You Promoted Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson?!?

In the town of Coeymans they’ve already started. We all know what friends Boehm and Darlington are, and Dawn Rogers had a special fondness for the Coeymans police department. Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff saw the writing on the wall and pulled his sockpuppet Kerry Thompson out of the Coeymans p.d. with the cleverly disguised “promotion” of Thompson to “deputy chief deputy.” Thompson then resigned his position with the Coeymans p.d. (Nice move, Craig, get out of harm’s way while you can.) So what do the dregs on the Coeymans town council do? Rather than accept their fate, they promote psycho cop Ryan Johnson, a reject from the Cairo p.d., and such a psycho that they had to get him out-of-the-way in the Coeymans p.d. so they got on a drug task force. Well Johnson, as inept as he was and continues to be, has botched up so many investigations and probably holds the record for complaints against the Coeymans police department has been promoted to the rank of sergeant in the Coeymans p.d.! They promoted Coeymans’ own Psycho-Cop! Thanks Tom Boehm, Tom Dolan, Dawn Rogers!!!

Previous to the so-called “promotion” Psycho-cop Ryan F. Johnson was collecting more than $58,000 in town of Coeymans taxpayer dollars! For what?

That is poor government, escalating spending in this way in times when the majority on the Coeymans town council should be looking for ways to save money and to avoid excess spending. No doubt this is a part of the Boehm, Rogers, Dolan Revenge Plan. Ryan F. Johnson was already cashing in to the tune of more than $58,000 a year from the Coeymans taxpayer pockets!

Even Tom Boehm’s lies couldn’t keep him or Dawn Rogers in office. The two town officials Boehm and Darlington, and Rogers were constantly tripping up and abusing got re-elected, and Boehm and Rogers, two of Darlington’s supporters, are no more. Now where does that leave Darlington? Where does that leave that money-pit of the Coeymans police department? Here’s where: in very dangerous waters. The Coeymans police department is useless, corrupt, and simply a playpen for a bunch of thugs who can’t go anywhere else. They thought they had it made until their friends on the Coeymans town council got the boot. Now the way is clear to break up the party going on in the basement of Coeymans town hall and turn law enforcement over to the profession law enforcement professionals you’re paying for already: The Albany County Sheriff and the New York State Police.  There are better ways to spend the $1,000,000 (one million) that the Coeymans p.d. is costing taxpayers every year!

Have our readers heard about the suspension of two Coeymans police officers for misconduct or criminal activities? We’ve heard it’s been discussed in town council Executive Session but not a peep has been heard in the media. It’s been a very well-kept secret. Do we owe the secrecy to Tom Boehm, Dawn Rogers and Tom Dolan? How about it, Coeymans police-chief-whose-job-is-in-jeopardy Gregory Darlington: Come clean if you can. Who are the officers and what’s the story?

We say: As soon as the new Coeymans town council takes over in January, we say RESCIND Johnson’s promotion. Set the wheels in motion to save Coeymans taxpayers $1,000,000 and eliminate the Coeymans Police Department. Stop the lies they tell to misinform residents that they need the Coeymans p.d.!

In the meantime, keep a close eye on what is going on on the Coeymans town council, and watch Tom Boehm, Dawn Rogers, and Tom Dolan very closely. They’re going to try to push quite a few things through before they leave that you’re going to be saddled with afterwards. Get to the town council meetings and make your wishes known. Coeymans residents must demand a moratorium on any major decisions until the new Coeymans town council takes over. And keep a very close eye on what’s going on with the town of Coeymans 2014 budget! It hasn’t been approved yet. Don’t let them spend any more of your dollars on a police department that’s almost out the door! Coeymans voters have the momentum, now use it to good advantage: Anything Boehm, Dolan, Rogers or Darlington want, SAY NO!

Town of New Baltimore

Like the town of Coeymans, the voters in the Town of New Baltimore finally got smart and kicked supervisor Susan O’Rorke out and put in some community-minded people like Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Ruso, Sally van Etten on the board and sent a clear message to the local elitist clubs represented by Janet Angelis (of sign-stealing fame) and Hilary Schrauf (of no fame at all).  That doesn’t mean that Dellisanti, Ruso, and van Etten have a ticket for free lunch; in fact, we’re going to be watching them very, very closely and any indication of deviating from the straight and narrow and we’ll be on them tighter than the skin on a frog’s back.

We’d like your support to get action!

The Hudson-Catskill Newspapers (Ravena News Herald, Greene County News, Daily Mail) refused to publish the personal profiles of the New Baltimore’s Republican, Conservative and Independence party-endorsed candidates. Don’t you think that might have had a very big effect on the election results in New Baltimore, or anywhere else where such media misconduct could happen? We’d like you to  John B. Johnson, chairman, and Mark Vinciguerra, publisher, what you think of their discriminatory, unfair, unbalanced coverage of the candidates and their unfairly influencing the elections. The publishers of those newspapers abused their privileges. Here are their emails:

More Election Fraud in New Baltimore?

Similar to Ravena, New Baltimore Has a History of Election Fraud. With the Count of Absentee Ballots Coming up On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, Will the Losers at the Polls Have the Dignity to Concede? Or Will They Wait for Us to Challenge the Counts and Expose the Frauds? How about it, Susan O’Rorke? Janet Angelis? Hilary Schrauf?

They Did It Last Time! Will They Try It Again?

They Did It Last Time!
Will They Try It Again?

Last Time Around Multiple Absentee Ballots Were Fraudulent!

And let’s not forget the underhanded sabotage by the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, The Daily Mail (all owned by the Johnson News Paper Corporation and run by Hudson Catskill Newspapers) when they handed the New Baltimore democrats full-page coverage and gave  NOTHING to the Republican, Conservative, Independence candidates–except BROKEN PROMISES and EXCUSES (see the October 31, 2013, issue of the Ravena News Herald, for example!) ! The candidates were not the only ones to suffer indignity; voters in New Baltimore were cheated, too! Boycott those papers, cancel your subscriptions, don’t shop with their advertisers and tell them Why?!?


The Hudson-Catskill Newspapers (Ravena News Herald, Greene County News, Daily Mail) refused to publish the personal profiles of the  New Baltimore’s Republican, Conservative and Independence party-endorsed candidates. Don’t you think that  might have had a very big effect on the election results  in New Baltimore? Why else would two very qualified candidates, Russo and Vadney, have lost to two very unqualified insiders? Think about that. You should tell John B. Johnson, chairman, and Mark Vinciguerra, publisher, what you think of their discriminatory, unfair, unbalanced coverage of the candidates and their unfairly influencing the elections. Here are their emails:

John B. Johnson
Chairman, Johnson Newspaper Corp.
jbj@wdt.net

Mark Vinciguerra
Publisher, Hudson-Catskill Newspapers
mvinciguerra@registerstar.com

We have a big bone to pick with the Greene County Board of Elections, too, and demand some action from the Office of the Attorney General and from the Secretary of State. We think the Republican, Conservative, and Independence party-endorsed candidates, no matter whether they were successful or not, should join together and demand an explanation Why? the Greene County Board of Elections did nothing in response to the unbalanced coverage of the candidates. You can read on the Greene County BoE website: “The right to vote in the United States is one of our most important constitutional guarantees and we make every effort to insure that the election process in Greene County is administered in a fair, efficient, and professional manner.” OK. It’s not! In fact, we feel that the residents and voters of the Town of New Baltimore, no matter what their persuasion, should demand that Greene County Election Commissioners Thomas J. Burke and Brent Bogardus both RESIGN! They’ve both proved themselves to be useless, impotent, and irrelevant! If you agree, tell them so! Here are their e-mails:

Thomas J. Burke
tburke@discovergreene.com

Brent Bogardus
bbogardus@discovergreene.com


But New Baltimore Dems Didn’t Make A Peep. Why? Because it was New Baltimore Dems and their Republican-in-Name-Only Goons that Misused the Absentee Ballots!

Well fool us once, shame on YOU! It won’t happen again! Former New Baltimore town justice Joe Cosenza and the Mrs. moved out of New Baltimore but continued to attempt to vote for their cronies in the last elections using absentee ballots. They got caught and their votes were disqualified. That little criminal act was perpetrated by the same democrat who put on the black robes of justice and sat in judgment of others. Don’t we call that a hypocrite? Don’t we call that criminal? YES! But no one said anything (insider club at work).

Then there’s Christopher “Chris” Norris’ boys. Chris Norris is a sitting New Baltimore town councilperson. Chris Norris is a very good friend and supporter of New Baltimore ex-supervisor Susan O’Rorke who lost the election at the polls last week. We have a report that Norris’ two sons, both of whom reside outside of the area, have been voting in New Baltimore elections. How is it that a sitting member of the New Baltimore town council allows that to happen? We need to hear from you, Chris, with a statement or comment denying the report. Is it true of is it false? Are your two boys living out of the area but voting in local elections?

What? Me? My Boys? Election Fraud? Chris Norris! We Want to hear from you!

What? Me? My Boys? Election Fraud?
Chris Norris! We Want to hear from you!

The whole absentee ballot system is flawed and prone to misuse and election fraud. Ballots can and will be challenged, dragging the whole process out and sullying the voters who voted legally and moved their butts out of the house to do their duty.

We say that the losers at the polls must CONCEDE and avoid the unnecessary process of absentee ballots and challenges. And the discovery of more democrat voter fraud!

What do YOU think, readers?

How Dare You! Arrogant Fascist!


DoDo Says

Update: Election returns are in.
Typical of the Ravena News Herald, the returns are not published in the November 6, 2013, edition. The NH has inserted a note at the bottom of page 1 notifying readers/subscribers that the results will be published in next-week’s NH. Again, we’re doing what the Johnson News Paper Corp. and the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers apparently can’t do:
Keep you informed!

How many ways are there for a newspaper to commit suicide? Just one: Get caught in a lie. Just ask John B. Johnson

How many ways are there for a newspaper to commit suicide?
Just one: Get caught in a lie.
Just ask John B. Johnson

Brief Recap of the Problem

As we all know, the local newspapers publish the profiles of all the candidates running for office in the issue of the newspaper appearing just prior to Election Day. This year, however, the News Herald and other newspapers that appear in the New Baltimore area refused to publish the Republican, Conservative, Independence party-endorsed candidates Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Russo, Shelly van Etten, Sally Russo and AnnMarie Vadney BUT they did publish a full-page set of profiles for the O’Rorke-5, none-of whom were endorsed by any major party.

On October 18, 2013, in an e-mail sent by Ravena News Herald editor Melanie Lekocevic to candidate AnnMarie Vadney, Lekocevic wrote:”

“I spoke with the editor of the Daily Mail about this. Our New Baltimore reporter, Jessica Mosier, will cover your story. Unfortunately she is away for the weekend and can’t make the Sunday event, but she will contact you next week to do a profile of the candidates. Her story would run in the Daily Mail, the Greene County News and the Ravena News-Herald.”

LIAR

LIAR

So, on October 31, 2014, all town of Coeymans candidates and the O’Rorke-5 (O’Rorke, Angelis, Schrauf, Brooks, Jordan) all got coverage in the Ravena News Herald, the Greene County News, and the Daily Mail. Nothing appeared for Dellisanti, Ruso, van Etten, Russo and Vadney. So this blog got involved and started asking questions, particularly of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation and the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers/the Columbia-Green Media Group/the RegisterStar, and e-mailed Lekocevic, and John B. Johnson, chairman of the Johnson Newspaper Corporation (owns the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers), as well as Mark Vinciguierra (formerly director of circulation for the Albany Times Useless), publisher of the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers (Register-Star and Daily Mail, both dailies, as well as the weekly Chatham Courier, Windham Journal, The Mountain Eagle, Ravena News-Herald and Greene County News). We e-mailed John Johnson, Mark Vinciguerra and the other editors and wanted to know Why the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers refused to publish the profiles of the New Baltimore Republican, Conservative and Independence party-endorsed candidates Dellisanti, Ruso, van Etten, Russo and Vadney?

Vinciguerra didn’t bother to respond but his boss did, and what he had to say was tantamount to “Screw you! New Baltimore!”

Here are just a few of John B.  Johnson’s choice expressions to cover his ass over the issue (the full text of Johnson’s comments are published on this blog, just go to the article and select “comments”). John B. Johnson says:

  • “Just because we had plans to do 1:1 interviews and then wasn’t able to fulfill those plans doesn’t mean you need to get your panties in a knot.  Sometimes shit happens and life changes.”
  • “One of our editors told you something and then changed their mind. My goodness, what a terrible transgression.”
  • “Tough cookies, Circumstances change and we adjust.”
  • “Unfortunately, 1 on 1 interviews didn’t work out.”

Meanwhile, Mark Vinciguerra spent more than 20 hours on this blog on November 4-5, and on November 5, Vinciguerra spent more than 7 hours on this blog. His boss, John B. Johnson, spent more than 2 hours reading this blog on November 4. Apparently they spend more time reading this blog than they do their own newspapers. Can’t imagine why? Could it be that the coverage of local issues on this blog are better than you get in the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers rags? You better believe it!

John B. Johnson, Johnson Newspaper Corp.: “Screw you! New Baltimore!” “Tough cookies.”

So, that’s how Johnson and Vinciguerra feel about their responsibilities to these communities:”Don’t get your panties in a knot.” “Tough cookies.” “Sometimes shit happens and life changes.” (Convince yourselves, Johnson’s comments are all published unedited on this blog!)  We think it’s time to show Johnson and Vinciguerra that we don’t appreciate being treated like yesterday’s bowel movement.

Our Response to Smart-ass Johnson and to No-Response Vinciguerra:

John B. Johnson

John B. Johnson

stick loserHOW DARE YOU DEPRIVE THE VOTERS OF THIS TOWN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THE CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE AND THEN TO DISCRIMINATE, TO DARE TO SELECTIVELY PUBLISH THE PROFILES OF ONE GROUP AND NOT THE OTHER. YOU DON’T HAVE THAT RIGHT, YOU DON’T HAVE THAT AUTHORITY. WE AND THIS COMMUNITY WILL PURSUE THIS. BUT FIRST, OUR CALL WILL CONTINUE TO GO OUT TO RESIDENTS OF ALL THE AREA TO BOYCOTT YOUR PUBICATIONS AND TO CANCEL THEIR SUBSCRIPTIONS IN PROTEST. FURTHERMORE, WE ARE PUTTING OUT A CALL FOR OUR READERS TO BOYCOTT ANY BUSINESS ADVERTISING IN YOUR PUBLICATIONS UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT YOU AND YOUR PUBLISHER, MR MARK VENCIGUERRA, AND THE EDITORS OF ALL YOUR PUBLICATIONS SOLD IN THE NEW BALTIMORE AREAS ADMIT THE MISTAKE AND ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DAMAGE DONE TO THE CANDIDATES DELLISANTI, RUSO, VAN ETTEN, RUSSO AND VADNEY, AND PUBLISH YOUR APOLOGIES CONSPICUOUSLY IN THE RAVENA NEWS HERALD, THE GREENE COUNTY NEWS AND THE DAILY MAIL!

In the meantime, Mr John B. Johnson and Mr Mark Vinciguerra, you’d better pray real hard that Dellisanti, Ruso, vanEtten, Russo and Vadney take these elections by a landslide because you’ve really gotten us very, very pissed. That, sir, is a big mistake; you’re about to find out the real power of First Amendment free expression.

STAND UP NEW BALTIMORE VOTERS! JOIN US NEIGHBORS IN COEYMANS AND COXSACKIE! FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE FASCIST ARROGANCE OF THE CONTROLLED MEDIA IN OUR COMMUNITIES. FIGHT BACK WITH YOUR CHECKBOOKS AND WALLETS. BOYCOTT THE NEWS HERALD, THE GREENE COUNTY NEWS, THE DAILY MAIL. CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS. PUT PRESSURE ON LOCAL BUSINESSES WHO ADVERTISE IN THOSE RAGS UNTIL STOP BUYING THERE AND TELL THEM WHY! JOHNSON AND VINCIGUERRA APOLOGIZE PUBLICLY TO THE CANDIDATES AND TO THE CITIZENS, THE VOTERS OF THESE COMMUNITIES!

This One's for You, John B. Johnson! Just tell us where you want us to put it!

This One’s for You,
John B. Johnson!

Just tell us where you want us to put it!

TOGETHER WE’LL GIVE THEM “TOUGH COOKIES!” TOGETHER WE’LL SHOW THEM WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE GET “OUR PANTIES IN A KNOT!” WE’LL SHOW THE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T KEEP YOUR WORD TO THE VOTERS OF THESE COMMUNITIES AND SEND US THE MESSAGE TO SCREW OFF, WHILE ABUSING OUR TRUST, ABUSING THE FIRST AMENDMENT, ABUSING THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS!

Definite Rejects: Town of Coeymans

In the Town of Coeymans

Just Little Lies...But Lots of Them! Case, Boehm, Rogers, Maddage

Just Little Lies…But Lots of Them!
Case, Boehm, Rogers, Maddage

martin case_2x3

VOTE NO!
Martin “Marty” Case

no_smallMartin Case running for Coeymans Town Supervisor
In General, we feel that Martin Case will do to Coeymans what he and the mayor John Bruno have done to Ravena: They’ve made Ravena a ghost town, a slum and a dictatorship. We can just imagine Marty Case reaching over to kiss mayor Bruno’s hairy butt from Coeymans town hall. God forbid! Marty Case has closed his eyes to civil rights abuses in Ravena, has allowed the town to misuse taxpayer money to fund an illegal health and fitness center, has supported favoritism of every kind, including appointing Cathy Deluca to be the director of the illegal fitness center without giving other more qualified people a chance to apply. Marty Case is a full-time social studies teacher but has done nothing for youth in Ravena. In fact, Case has not spoken out against Nancy Warner’s and John Bruno’s harassing of the local kids and has done nothing to support the Ravena-Coeymans Youth and Teen Activities Center. Case touts his many jobs in Ravena but doesn’t explain his plan to get Ravena out of the ugly condition it’s in. Instead, he claims he can work for Coeymans. Case is unrealistic, insincere, and a phoney. If you want Coeymans to turn into a big Ravena over night, he’s your man. If you want to get the crooks and the favoritism out of local government, VOTE NO! on Marty Case. (One question that we do have is this: Is Marty Case going to quit his teacher’s job to do the Coeymans supervisor’s job? Both are full-time positions, you know. Or which one is going to get short-changed? The kids or the town? Marty hasn’t answered that question yet, has he?)
And while we’re talking about deceit, Case is running on the promise to improve relations between Ravena and Coeymans. He’s had plenty of time to do that while on the Ravena village council but there he only backed mummy mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Warner in badmouthing the Town of Coeymans. How’s he propose to improve relations as supervisor? By handing the town over to his godfather Ravena mayor John Bruno?
Case “supporters” , a couple of dozen or so, mostly from the village of Ravena, most all from the same family and right from the families of village employees, and all typewritten, no signatures, sent out an illiterate letter begging for votes. Read the deceptive, phoney pack of lies at Case Begs for Votes.

Marty Case is a Phoney!

no_smallThomas “Tom” Boehm running for Coeymans town council

VOTE NO! Thomas "Tom" Boehm

VOTE NO!
Thomas “Tom” Boehm

Tom Boehm is another blow-hard. He’s done nothing for Coeymans that can be called positive. He works for the Albany Chamber of Commerce but has not used that connection to do anything for Coeymans at all. Boehm is a nasty backstabber, as anyone in Coeymans town hall can tell you. He’s in tight with Coeymans dodo cop Darlington and his nest of thugs. Boehm is a saboteur, an obstacle creator, a wedge in the gears of good, clean, honest government in Coeymans. Boehm hooked up with Darlington recently to put on a dog and pony act to deceive the public into thinking that Coeymans is a drug hell and that recent drug busts are a credit to the Coeymans police department. It was all a smoke and mirrors act and the press gobbled it up because it was yet another scandal, another stain on Coeymans. We don’t need our elected officials to make fools of this community; we need people in elected office who will point out the good points of a community of hard working and honest citizens. We don’t need another elected official who is a liar and a member of the croney-club. We don’t need another politician in local government who does favors in return for favors (which is what he’s doing with Darlington). We won’t go on and on about Tom Boehm because we have already reported on Boehm the Bum on this blog several times. Just search “Boehm” for relevant articles. We certainly don’t need another blow-hard do-nothing in local government. Get rid of Boehm the Bum and get someone who will do something positive for the town of Coeymans! You have a choice, you know.

Tom Boehm is a Blowhard Phoney!

no_smallDawn Rogers running for Coeymans town council

VOTE NO! Dawn Rogers

VOTE NO!
Dawn Rogers

Dawn Rogers may be a lack-luster non-achiever on the Coeymans town board. But we think we know why. We think Tom Boehm has bullied her like he likes to bully the other women in Coeymans town hall. We think that Tom Boehm and Tom Dolan have pushed her and Peter Masti into a corner and have intimidated them to the point that they appear to be chair-warmers and nothing else. Don’t get us wrong, we can’t point out anything that Dawn Rogers has done that would credit her with anything worth mentioning but if voters get rid of Boehm and eventually Dolan, Rogers, if re-elected may be able to take a deep breath and actually do something. Given the opportunity, we’d replace her in a New-York-minute but if there’s no other alternative to Rogers, she’d be the lesser of evils to keep on the board. She’ll continue to be useless if Boehm stays but if Boehm stays the whole game is lost, anyway. Boehm is poison to public officials like Rogers and Masti. We say if Boehm goes, keep Rogers and let her prove herself. If there’s a candidate with some guts to replace Rogers, once Boehm is gone, we’d replace her.

Dawn Rogers is a … What is she, anyway?

no_smallMichelle Maddage running for Coeymans town clerk

VOTE NO! Michelle Maddage

VOTE NO!
Michelle Maddage

Michelle Maddage is the biggest joke on the ballott! The poor nitwit hasn’t a clue what her so-called friends, like Gregory Darlington, have done to her. If she’s that stupid, we certainly don’t need her anywhere near public office! But the biggest joke is this: Maddage has nothing to offer, no experience, no education, no record of public service, no résumé of management experience. The simple fact that she has allowed herself to be manipulated into becoming a public mockery is enough to disqualify her immediately. The main point, however, is that she is running against a very popular, very professional, very loved incumbent Town Clerk! Diane Millious has more than 24 years of experience in the clerk’s office. Yes, voters, that’s how much experience Diane Millious has! In fact, before she even ran for town clerk, she had already 10 years of experience as deputy town clerk. Maddage has allowed herself to become a twit; she’s too friendly with too many of the Coeymanazis to do the rest of us any good anyway. The fact that she has allowed herself to be made into a pathetic clown, not knowing her limitations, is clear proof she’s not the stuff we need in any public office, unless she continues to be an administrative assistant or a secretary.

Michelle Maddage is a Clown (thanks to her “friends”)!

Well, there you have it. Our reasons for recommending that town of Coeymans and  voters VOTE NO! on the above candidates. If our readers want to know more about many of these candidates, we have published quite a few articles about them in the past, and you can easily search this blog for those articles.

We are not telling our readers how to vote but only to be sure to vote and when voting, to know something about the people you are voting for. We publish stuff they don’t want you to know and you won’t find in their newspaper profiles. That’s for certain.

It is our policy to ask our readers to please comment on our articles. We also want to hear from the candidates themselves with any information or clarification that might make our comments less severe, or which will shed some light on some of the points we have made. All comments are welcome and, if on topic and civil, will be published.

VOTE YES for Dellisanti, Ruso, vanEtten, Russo, and Vadney

VOTE NO! for  Case, Boehm, Rogers, Maddage
