More Law Breaking (From a Reader)


Dear Concerned,
Attached are two pictures of BOE president Joan Calkins talking on her cell phone, while driving on Southwestern Blvd. close to Lowes.  This is very alarming and dangerous behavior from a pediatrician and BOE president as this behavior could take the life of a Hamburg child or their parent(s).  I think this would make a nice lead story on the blog. 
Thanks

Are we reduced to throwing stones now? Yes, it's a horrible and dangerous habit, but is this why we will vote or not vote for a candidate? I'm going to take a wild stab and suggest that we may not have any candidates to vote for if left up to their driving habits.

I am all for getting these clowns out, but I think this is pushing it. How many of us have been guilty of this from time to time?Please stick to the issues. (Now stealing, vandalism, DUI/DWI I would consider severe character issues.)

This is utter nonsense. That photo has no place on this blog. The woman is a medical doctor and, if not, she certainly should be exempt from the cell phone law. If she were dealing with an emergency regarding one of your children you'd want her on that phone fast enough. Badly played, Hamburger.

I agree,

One big character flaw lying about ones education and Nursing license as a Registered Nurse. This was and is a big character flaw of Patty Brunner/Collins Review the PTST meet the candidates Patty is UNTRUTH. i AM NOT WILLING TO VOTE FOR HER NOW.

My Grandfather was killed by someone who was talking on their phone, without using a hands free device, breaking the law. He might be alive today. Holding a cell phone up to your ear was outlawed in NYS for a reason, to save lives. You would think a doctor would know the consequences of their actions. "IF" this were an emergency situation, Dr. Calkins could have easily plugged in her hands free device and abided by the law. I will not be voting for "Dr. Calkins."

I agree with what was written above, Joan thinks that the people do not have the right to know what is going on, but the open meetings laws contradict that. The way she rotates her head side to side and looks to Acromo before saying a word, is crazy. Evidentially, Dr. Calkins does not know that education law states that "the Superintendent serves at the pleasure of the board". She thinks that Acromodouch is her boss,,what an idiot. Who would vote for this fool?

I bet Joan and patty rue the day they started making up lies about teachers and staff, and the day they agreed with don ogilve of Erie 1 boces to appoint achramo dirtbag. Joan is so arrogant she actually thinks she knows what she is doing. Patty Bruner lied under oath to coverup the scumbag lies she and members of the community launched. Joan and patty are foul, and have never once stood up for what is right. Joan has nothing to say for herself other than talk about her kids. What have you done for the district other than make a blanket for dr Crawford from the wool of the sheep that live in your living room and swim in our pool? Matt dils lies are catching up with him. What goes around comes around....you are lucky you aren't in jail or being sued for defamation.

I ride a Motorcycle, Talking on the phone while driving is Illegal. I don't need someone taking MY life into their own hands by Breaking the Laws. But then again Dr. Calkins broke the laws while on the school board too. She is Definitely NOT getting MY Vote.

Where can I go tonight for instant results of the election and budget vote? What is your best advice on where to tune in or log on or call?

She's a single practitioner who is on call 24/7, a mother of five children, and the president of the school board. If Joan stopped to answer every phone call that she received, she'd never get anything done. Also, Joan is an incredible woman and a damn good doctor. To whomever is writing this blog--you're clearly getting desperate. Why don't you find something better to do with your time? The members of the school board are working incredibly hard to deal with nation-wide cuts. You have no idea how complicated the issues at hand really are; stop pretending you do.

Really! Hamburg Resident So because “She's a single practitioner who is on call 24/7, a mother of five children, and the president of the school board” It’s ok. So when she hits and kills one of the parents or a student of the Hamburg school district its ok. Because she is a busy person . Really! How about this as a Doctor and an elected official she follows the law and lead by example. You know its people who don’t see anything wrong with her braking the law are the same type of people who say “ there is nothing wrong with drinking and driving I have been doing it for years”

Super

Well said I cannot agree with you more.

and if Joan is so busy that she cannot stop to answer the phone to do her job dont be on the school board. She may be a mother of five but last I checked they were all grown except one.

@ Hamburg Resident:
Hands Free for phone only cost $35

illegal & dangerous said...

Joan is above the law.
I agree no one, and I mean no one should be using a cell phone unless it is hands free. Even our village judge drives while talking on his cell phone and just think how special he is. He actually imposes fines on those that talk on cell phones while driving. IT IS DANGEROUS AND AGAINST THE LAW TO USE A CELL PHONE OTHER THAN A HANDS FREE DEVICE WHILE OPERATING A MOTOR VEHICLE.

And by the way what does being a fine doctor have to do with breaking the law?
