The Truth About The Joan Calkins Board of Education Campaign

The Hamburg Board of Education election 2013 was exciting.  David Yoviene, Catherine Schrauth Forcucci and Laura Heeter won the three seats open in a landslide victory-  the Hamburg School Community spoke loud and in a clear voice.  The winners defeated the only incumbent seeking re-election to the Board of Education.  Current members, Matthew Dils and Diane Reynolds did not seek re-election.

The community of Hamburg spoke loud and clear, they did not want Joan Calkins to continue on the Board due to her part in the planned destruction of the school district over the last 4 years.  Joan and Steve's trampling upon the United States Constitution sent a wave of resentment throughout the community, and the votes cast reflect that sentiment.

Concerned has learned that Joan Calkins made some lackluster, unorganized attempt at a campaign for re-election.  Her campaign included telephone calls to numbers she obtained from the district- a direct violation of privacy, and a brochure in which she failed to focus on her campaign, and those running against her, but rather tells lies about private citizens and uses an old man as a pawn in her sick game. The telephones numbers that were called by the Calkins campaigners were the emergency contact numbers of the parents in the Hamburg School District. Where did Joan et. al get their hands on those numbers?

Joan's campaign literature was not only malignant to private citizens, it was poorly constructed with many errors.   As a Vassar College and Johns Hopkins graduate, one would think Joan could do better.

Joan's behavior in the election was nothing short of outrageous, and a simple question was answered by the voters in Hamburg, is Joan Calkins the kind of person you want serving on the Board of Education?  The community answered, NO!

A few questions remain unanswered and only time will reveal the truth.  Concerned and others expect a Joan and Steve stunt before the last day of June when Joan will vacate her seat as Board of Education President, and the district will be liberated.  The reports which have come to Concerned regarding paper shredding and document tampering at the Hamburg Administration Building are troubling, but not surprising.

July 1, 2013 brings a brand new day in the Hamburg School District, and once again the sun will shine.

send all the legal bills to Chacchia and Fleming Law firm. Rumored throughout this community this is why we have spent so much $$$$$$$$$$$$$ to protect them.

Protect them from what is the question?

Secrets need to emerge

Way too personal for Dan Chaichia. Campaign piece he put out sloppy and misleading. Actually full of lies. Possibly his law firm is being sued by those on the Joan Calkins sb piece?

Please post in favor of Joan if you wish. Let us see what lame excuse anyone could give on her behavior. If she is mentally ill, then we must show compassion- but she seems to be only a nasty lady. Look how she treated Hamburgs very own darling and pillar of character laura heeter. People like Laura Heeter come around once in a life time, and Joan was rotten to her, so I have heard. Please defend Joan- maybe she should apologize or would that take too much from her elitest ego?

The Joan school board tried very hard to make things right. Steve was called in to get the district out of the Crawford mess. One or two out of control teachers couldn't take being moved to another position and things went down the toilet.

Shame on most of you. It will take years for the district to recover.

Joan lied about people. Many people. She should be ashamed of herself. The nasty campaining dull of lies about people and negativity.

Copernicus said...

Before Joan was on the Board, she came into the high school and bullied teachers. just ask the teachers. She demanded that her daughter be offered AP French when only two kids were taking it. Joan could give a rats ass about " regular" kids. She is an elitest slob. Guess what Joan- one pound of street smart would sell 10 X in value to your sheltered snobby education. What a horrible lesson to learn at age 60- but you are not the center of the universe!

the district will recover immediately July 1st. Joan way over the top with her vendetta. Joan has hurt many in our school community. Never considered how her action and lack of compassion for many who have suffered as a result of Steve Achramovitch with her approval. Lack of compassion or common sense and lying are the reasons for the Joan and Steve losing this election.

Thank you Phil Rumore for all your support. Never under estimate the power of our collective HTA.

Thanks to everyone

My fellow blogger Super

You are shoveling sand against the tide if you expect an act of contrition form those inclined to mischief. An apology derives significance only when rendered by quality individuals who in due course recognize impaired judgment or error on their own part or in that of others. When the regenerated BOE is in place I have no doubt that you will receive a formal apology from worthy individuals of high principle.

The fact that you continue to post about Joan even after she is off the school board shows that you are nasty and vindictive. The same adjectives you claim she is. Move on, she certainly has.

Anonymous said...

FYI, her being off the school board is definately not enough. She will be lucky to survive the next few years financially. She needs to pay for what she has done.

Mr. DOYLE said...

Dumb Dumb Joan Supporter- Joan the horses ass is on the BOE until the last day of June. Duh! Are you stupid, or just a lapse in judgement. Besides, Joan is not done- her ass is going to be dragged into depositions and court because of her deception and what amounts to theft of taxpayer dollars for her phoney bs lawsuit. Now she is going after chris cerrone. We know all, and her ass is grass. Maybe Joan should think of hiring a lawyer--but not harris beach. Bahhhaaaa Joan- you are one sicko. The only friend you have is the music department- bahahhahahhaaaaa...asshole- you screwed the HTA and f'ed with some really sharp folks. Dumb Dumb joan. We watched all of this going down, and your are too thick to get it!

Matt Dils....boy how does it feel to know you are a liar?

I was amused and delighted that Calkins lost. When I went to vote as I walked by her she didn't even introduce herself or even ask for my vote. What arrogance I thought. Unlike the other sucessful candidates who actually listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I say good riddance Joan,Ding Dong the Witch is dead!!

Word on the street is that the district has broken into peoples computers. Please have your computers checked ASAP and investigate for crawlers. If you have a MAC the APPLE store in the mall does it for free. If you have a PC, go see a computer person. If your computer is acting weird, check it out. I was told that former BOE member Mr. Madden thought this was a good idea to break into computers. It could be the reason why certain district lawyers are flipping out. We heard that Achramo is behind what we believe to be computer hacking. Its bad folks...get your computer checkout of if you work fo r the district------- and NEVER use your personal computer on the distric network. BIG BRO IS WATCHING- AND ALL THE COMPUTER STAFF IN THE DISTRICT BETTER STAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LAW--JIM B--- THAT MEANS U. WE ARE TRACKING THIS THE BEST WE CAN. HOPING ITS BAD INFO- BUT HAVENT BEEN WRONT YET.

Hey 8:26 PM writer, did you go through the Lucy Calkins writing program? Does Joan know how to write? Joan is an idiot. Now just get rid of pom pom, anyone can smell the booze coming from her pores.

Concerned - that information is defined as directory information and, as such, according to FERPA, can be released without consent. There was no violation here. Sorry.

To anonymous 6/12 10:21 am

was the telephone directory released to all the candidates? IF not why not? Did Mr. CHia the attny give the phone #'s release the ok for the district? Will this list of our phone numbers be used by the Hamburg Town Democratic Committee in the next general election? Please I don't believe this writer this is a clear violation of privacy. Sorry we don't believe you, lawyers have been known to be wrong.
