Concerned Hamburger came upon the below email (in blue and red) from Hamburg School Board President David Yoviene written on May 16, 2013- just a few days before he was elected to the school board. Mr. Yoviene credits Concerned Hamburger for his interest in being on the Hamburg School Board. Mr. Yoviene pledges to fight to protect first amendments rights, and other noble causes. He criticizes his predecessors for wasteful spending which lined the pockets of greedy lawyers. Mr. Yoviene, you and your ilk have eclipsed the transgressions of Dr. Calkins et. al.. Surely, the legal bills and other channeling of monies away from the kids under your watch is tipping toward the 1/2 million dollar mark.
For example, it was recently learned that the Hamburg School Board, Hodgson Russ Law Firm and a firm called DIGITS- digital forensic solutions spent thousands of taxpayer dollars in a scheme to learn the identity of an "anonymous blogger". It has also been learned that the anonymous blogger is Concerned Hamburger. This tri-party plan to discover, at the very least questionably and perhaps illegally, the ISP carrier and identity of a private citizen pauses one to ponder the ethical and legal ramifications of the clandestine scheme funded by dollars earmarked for Hamburg kids. Mr. Yoviene, don't you think this money could have been better spent? Perhaps pay a grant writer to go after monies for sidewalks, hockey teams and restoring teachers and programs so kids aren't pent up in study halls?
Sorry children you will have to raise your own money in cookie sales to fund your clubs and sports, we are taking your money to spy on private citizens.
