The New York State Attorney General is needed in Hamburg Central Schools

According to the Buffalo News, local attorney Daniel Chiacchia, and Hamburg School parent Ed Piazza are attempting to have Hamburg Central School Board Members removed for what Attorney Chiacchia calls a conflict of interest.  As a lawyer, Mr. Chiacchia must know that New York State does not have a recall provision for elected officials, yet he attempts to create public chaos around this issue in an effort to divert public attention away from the real business of the district.

Many board members and community members have made statements that the only solution to the district's problems would be an independent investigation.   Concerned Hamburger would like to suggest that the New York State Attorney General's office send a team of investigators to Hamburg to delve into the records of the central office, specifically the much talked about legal records.

Please contact the Buffalo Office of the NYS Attorney General and request an independent investigation of the Hamburg Central School District.

I am a mother of grown children. I went to the meeting at the Catholic Church. All I can say, is my friend Cindy E, never would have tolerated that witch hunt. I thought after the grrange meeting that things would get better, but Wendy E, you need to be ashamed of yourself. And I will tell you so in public. I was disgusted with that group and I can tell you that many people are watching this and wondering about Dan Chiaachia. Why Dan? Cindy would never have gone to such a low level. I am disgusted with Dan, Wendy and Ed Piazza. Just a witchhunt. bring in the attorneys. i am calling today.

School Board Members are calling for it, they must know that there was wrong doing and possible corruption in our administration. Steve abruptly resigned on his own, he knew that a lot could be discovered that was not good.

if this school district is going to be honest they must insist on it. Bring it on, the New York State Attorney General's investigation ASAP.

Joan Calkins was the Nevergold of Hamburg- she ran the districts legal advisors as if they were her own. Joan is going to cost this district millions when the truth about the real Joan Calkins comes out. Be patient- the truth always comes out.

Hilarious- so, how did Holly and Sally break the law? Lets see- Holly voted yes to use tax payer dollars to cover Joans Ass and Sally voted no. So, explain to me how did they break the law? I heard that nasty woman from Armor, Sandy Kloth yell out to Holly, " you broke the law". Why Mz. Kloth, because she voted to indemnify the local doctor who promised your neice something in the summer of 2010? That will come out too, which will explain why you are a hateful person. It must suck to be such a miserable woman, Mz.Kloth.

Maybe the AG should look into the district using taxpayer dollars to send a letter to Leslie Bennets husband not to go to the school she works at. Yes taxpayer dollars used to mingle in the domestic disputes of Leslie and Gary. Really Leslie, just tell the old man to go away and call the cops on him. Did ya really need a letter from the lawyers. Just think of the money that cost. You coulda bought some new chalk or something for the class room. Or, lets see you coulda got some special gifts for the people who do your dirty work. Wondering about the sex scandal at Armor.

Wow, this is getting nasty. I think you should ask the regular guy on the street, what does a school attorney do, and the answer would probably be: schools have attorneys? What is all the fuss about. Sure does seem from someone who is not paying attention that Dan Chiacchia wants the business for himself. What else do you expect, he is a lawyer- the lowest form of human existance. Look at the paper, his partner was ADMONISHED, because he took business from the bench. This is a no brainer folks. Stop now Dan, you are making a fool of yourself, and you are becoming the mock of downtown Bflo. Just saying, of course.

"We have a board right now that has personal vendettas to settle and in doing that they are operating in a manner that is leaving the kids behind," said organizer Ed Piazza. So, ED PIAZZA is the organizer of this sick group. Really, if one listens to you- you say nothing. And as you yourself stated, everyone is smarter than you. You look like a jackass- you would be wise to back away from Dan Chiacchia You could careless about education sir, the teachers at BVS will tell anyone that asks, you have NEVER been involved in education- in fact, do you have an education? From your language, one would guess NO.

My kids are important not this crap.

As the school officials have suggested request the State authorities come in here and investigate. There is more to this local attorney than he is letting on to.

This is why we have courts. Dan Chiacchia texted board members and attempted to black mail them. All recorded. I wonder what the Attorney Grievance Board is gonna think of Mr. Chiacchia when they get the complaint heading there way. There is a spy in your circle Dan... and you wouldnt believe what the grievance board is gonna get. Just Sayin....

Anonymous said...

It appears that Chiachia is being employed by his law partner Fleming as a proxy to seek revenge on those responsible for the admonition that Fleming received for ethics violations. Check the timeline. Chiacchia only appeared on the scene following that occurrence. He's also an asshole buddy of Caukins who can't deal with the fact that she was defeated in the school board election.

Hey Dan,

getting 150 people to a meeting is just super. You do realize that you had this same little problem back on May 21st, don't you? You ran your little mouth prior to the election, you stood outside the polls with Joan and offered up your dipshit support and your puppet Joan Calkins took a through beat down. You see Dan, the 150 people you have with you at those stupid meetings ALL voted for Joan on May 21st, but you lost, you took 4th. Nothing has changed, you have the same 150who are "right there by your side". Now if you would have been able to bring those 150 people PLUS about 1500 more people on May 21, 2013,,,,...well then you would have been in business. But guess what Danny, all your bitching and crying does not mean anything. You see, we live in a democracy, the people decide who is on the board, not some pint sized lawyer. The 150 people you are convincing to attend your pathetic little meetings are not smart enough to know that they are wasting their time. You have no power. You cannot remove anyone, or force them to resign. You are just kicking and screaming mad that you didn't get your way last May and you can't take it. It is really funny that you had an "agenda" for your last little meeting that included working on the election. You exposed the fact that you are pretty stupid last election by running such a horrible election. People are generally fooled by the fact that you are an attorney, they believe that you must automatically be smart, but that is definitely not the case. You produced your black and white campaign literature for Joan that attacked people who were not even running for the board. The people that received your stupid flyer were so confused. They looked at the ballot and did not see the names of the people you were bashing, they didn't know what you were doing. Your hate campaign did not help Joan at all, just like it is not going to help her this time around, or you. The trashy people that you and CRAZY JIM MARTINEZ have been convincing to go to those meetings don't have a clue, neither do you. You could not run a campaign if your life depended on it. No wonder why you lose in court so much. You should know that you have caused people to really talk negatively about you. Many people are saying that you need to get some help.

This would be so hilarious if not for the fact that these adults are acting like pathetic morons. The ONLY sure way to remove any board member is to defeat them when they are up for re-election. Or, ensure that their vote is moot by electing a majority of others to the board. Dan C and other can file as many 310 Appeals to State Ed for removal of a boe member but state ed will not render a decision until AFTER the person is up for re-election. State Ed will drag their feet, sending back responses and asking for counter-responses which keep the money flowing to the lawyers on both sides, but State Ed will hold any decision, so they can "let democracy work" and allow the people of the town to make their decision. Has State Ed made a decision on the 310 petition to remove Matt Dills yet? Now that the election is over and Dills chose not to run, you'll be hearing from State Ed soon and their answer will say something about the petition being moot and thus dismissed. Check out all the decisions rendered by the Commissioner online and I challenge you to find ONE instance where the state removed a board member. http://www.counsel.nysed.gov/appeals/

Your board is your board. Get to work on finding a Superintendent who won't be afraid of digging into the dirty laundry. While you're at it, find out if the state really gave Hamburg amnesty on their lost state aid, or was that something the administration "talked" about but never actually produced the letter that said so. 1.8 million was it? Hamburg, I believe you are still on the hook for that.

Admin Secretary said...

Hey parents where were you when the Board of Education spent your money to send Greg Wichacz to Africa, or when you money was sent to Africa to buy a concrete floor. Where were you when Matt Dils came to less than 50% of the meeings, or when Joan Calkins harassed Kelly Harper into quiting. So, parents where were you when Eileen Rucker and Ed Osborne ( Dunnings father in law) over spent the budget by 1.8 million or when Ed Osbourne was on the Foundation with his buddies trying to figure out how to run money from the district? Where were you then? What about the drug problems in the high school , that the administration refuses to adress. Why dont you ask your kids about that? Where were you, parents when Joan Calkins and her Board of 4 years cut 60 teachers and countless staff, why arent you outraged that your kids sit in classes of 25-30, some without desks. Where were you when Greg Davis, Mary Ellen Monofo and Gorden Kerr were give 15-19% raises just months before dozens of teachers were cut. WHere were you then. How about when the ENTIRE Lacrosse Team at HMS got caught with WEEED, and no one did a thing. How about the WEED and other stuff in the MIDDLE SCHOOL? ARE YOU OK WITH THAT PARENTS? What about the fact that your little ones in elementary school have the shortest instruction day in the ENTIRE COUNTRY. Or that your senior high students sit in 2-4 study halls a day. How about the fact that you have a multimillion dollar atheletic field, but it wasnt until this year that the 50 year old roof was replaced. What about the FACT that you have an INTERIM Superintendent with NO EXPERIENCE- NONE- but he is making 175,000 per year- are you OK with that? How about the teachers having sex in the basement of the high school, but no one was reprimanded it was swept under the carpet. Or that vice principals were have affairs with teachers, but now one cared at all. Hey parents, why dont you ask your kids in college if Hamburg really prepared them for college, or are they being stuck in high priced remediation classes because they cant handle college work. Dont kid yourself Parents that Sally, David, Cat, Holly, Tom, Patty and who ever the other one is, are your problem. No, that is not true at all. You fools havent even given them a chance to clean up the mess left by Joan Calkins and YEARS of corruption. Hamburg has good teachers and great teachers, and good staff, they have tolerated the cuts and over class sizes- its not their fault- its your fault. You fools allowed Joan to hire Steve A without vetting him. Take a good long look at the legal bills- Steve has hired before anyone was even interviewed. How does that sound parents. That in 2010 your school had 4.2 million dollars in a fund balance, but JOAN still cut teachers. Get your facts straight- there is a lot more, but you arent listening parents. You will all be hanging your heads in shame when the REAL reasons for this insanity turns out to be something other than you simple minds think it to be. Really folks, get a clue.

Anonymous said...

Nice try. Quite a spin. But that's been the history of this blog. Please be truthful. Dr. Harper's resignation was brought about because of family and professional responsibilities. Stop trying to make it about Joan. Joan was supportive and empathetic towards Dr. Harper, as were most board members. If there was any harassment involved, it was on the part of those now publicly being accused of intimidation.

What needs to be reported is the number of times our buildings and grounds crew were at Joan's house.

I don't know about you admin secretary but I was still in school and if you knew this and said nothing then you are scum but the truth is your not because most of these responses are written by the same person . It is funny how a teacher video taped a student after being asked not to and that doesn't even get mentioned of course thus post probably won't make on the blog any ways. And the fact that some would put the name if Cindy E on this blog knowing her feelings about show you are lying and a very sick mentally disturbed individual.

11:59 AM, What are you saying? It seems like you dont like what the secretary had to say. Why dont you open your mind, it seems like you do not want to know that truth, or at a minimum some elses experiences. Here is one for you, how about the lies told about the HMS teacher showing psycho? She did no such thing, just a short clip from an ad for nuts on the internet. Maybe the truth is inconvenient, but as far as I know taking a picture of a student is not against the law. If it were, the Bflo News would be in the lock-up under the watchful eye of former BOE member Dils for publishing a picture of a student a few weeks ago. Is that what you are referring to? Maybe not? Do tell crazy person.

What is Joan not telling? She doesn't want anyone looking into her tenure on the school board. This seems to be why all the fuss. I am just observing. Why not have the Attorney General in here and clear up this mess?

Retired Teachers said...

Admin Secretary, keep the story going, if you know all of that you must know more. How about the Former President of the Hamburg Teachers Union, who has now decided at well over age 70 to speak at public meetings. We all know that for SEVERAL years, this teacher was collecting nearly 100K from the Hamburg School District, but HE only worked until noon time every day. Check out the Final Average Salary of former union president Clifford Huen, he taught only 3 classes a day FOR many years. Yes, this is the the kind of things that the Comptroller should look at. He retired in 2009 with large payouts for his sick time. Under this guy all kinds of dirty deals were done- like he allowed a teacher to be harassed by administration because the Cliff didnt like the teacher- she was scared out the door after 25 years of harassment by administration in 2008. Or, lets talk about the lists that CH keep on teachers he didnt like or ones that were smarter than he is- not too bright of a guy- just ask the kids he taught for years. Dirty deals, and as if working 1/2 days wasnt enough of theft of taxpayer dollars- the then awarded himself a 10K stipend as union president for doing NOTHING- Zilcho- Nada- nothing other than screw (in more ways than one) the very teachers and staff he was trusted to protect. So, Admin Sec, dont you remember this? Check it all out, check out see throughny and the 70K pension the Hamburg taxpayers send this guy. HECK at over 70 he should get on an Amtrac and sit on the beach in FLA with OLD man Osbourne who also screwed more people than you would know. If you dont believe this story go ask some of the teachers who have been around for more than 20 years. Ask the State Comptroller to investigate the pension of Mr. Huen- half of his salary was GIVEN to him to play nice with the district. Is the COmptroller looking at that?

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, everything you mentioned that CH did here is legal. It's not right and it's certainly disgusting, but it was all still legal. Welcome to New York State Teachers' retirement. They all bilk the system and it's legal. If the teacher didn't like CH being their union boss, all they had to do was to vote someone else into the position. If you don't like a person as a board member, vote someone else in, or run for the post yourself. I did not see Dan, Wendy or Ed's names on the ballot.

Stick to the issues at hand. We need a new superintendent. We need to cut ties with Harris Beach and select a new law firm to guide us without running up the meter. We need a person to address FOIL requests so we don't send the requests to the lawyer to charge us $40,000! (what the hell?!) We need teachers to teach our kids rather than study halls. We need parents and staff to work together on discipline and drug problems. That's just the short list.

Parent o Gay child- you should go to the hate fests and speak up. It is odd that they choose churches for their attacks. I have been to those meetings and I havent heard one thing about kids. I am so glad you wrote this comment. The next meeting is at joan Calkins Church- I think. The last meeting was in the Piazza's church. Hmm, how odd that they stand on holy ground for their selfish sick ways. The children of Hamburg come from the homes of these people, and one wonders what is wrong with our society. Gay children are terrorized in Hamburg, ask the kids in the schools- they will tell you. You child seemingly comes from a strong person who is willing to stand up to these sick villians.
I am reminded of Clarence Darrow's words about picking a jury- I think this around 1936- when the Germans were rolling out their plans of Hate in Europe. We are no different.

"If he is a Catholic, then he loves music and art; he must be emotional, and will want to help you; give him a chance.

If a Presbyterian enters the jury box and carefully rolls up his umbrella, and calmly and critically sits down, let him go. He is cold as the grave; he knows right from wrong, although he seldom finds anything right. He believes in John Calvin and eternal punishment. Get rid of him with the fewest possible words before he contaminates the others; unless you and your clients are Presbyterians you probably are a bad lot, and even though you may be a Presbyterian, your client most likely is guilty.

If possible, the Baptists are more hopeless than the Presbyterians. They, too, are apt to think that the real home of all outsiders is Sheol, and you do not want them on the jury, and the sooner they leave the better. The Methodists are worth considering; they are nearer the soil. Their religious emotions can be transmuted into love and charity. They are not half bad; even though they will not take a drink, they really do not need it so much as some of their competitors for the seat next to the throne. If chance sets you down between a Methodist and a Baptist, you will move toward the Methodist to keep warm.

Beware of the Lutherans, especially the Scandinavians; they are almost always sure to convict. Either a Lutheran or Scandinavian is unsafe, but if both in one, plead your client guilty and go down the docket. He learns about sinning and punishing from the preacher, and dares not doubt. A person who disobeys must be sent to hell; he has God's word for that.

As to Unitarians, Universalists, Congregationalists, Jews and other agnostics, don't ask them too many questions; keep them anyhow, especially Jews and agnostics. It is best to inspect a Unitarian, or a Universalist, or a Congregationalist with some care, for they may be prohibitionists; but never the Jews and the real agnostics! And do not, please, accept a prohibitionist; he is too solemn and holy and dyspeptic. He knows your client would not have been indicted unless he were a drinking man, and anyone who drinks is guilty of something, probably much worse than he is charged with, although it is not set out in the indictment. Neither would he have employed you as his lawyer had he not been guilty.

I have never experimented with Christian Scientists; they are much too serious for me. Somehow, solemn people seem to think that pleasure is wicked. Only the gloomy and dyspeptic can be trusted to convict.

Shakespeare knew: "Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look; he thinks too much; such men are dangerous."

Is this a news flash that Hamburg his a sick community. Please folks wake up, its been like this for years. It looks like some of these self-indulgent wrathful people will get so caught up in this that they dont realize they are destoying the very very thing they think they are trying to build. I left Hamburg many years ago, it is a sick community with white males running the place. Take one hard look at the HAMBURG AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY- a million dollar organization that gives NOTHING back to the community other than a few crumbs. Where does all that money go to? In the pockets of the white males. Ask a few of the African American families or Asia families how they have been treated in Hamburg. Its one sick group folks. THe fair doesnt even want busses from the city entering onto Fair Grounds property, so "diversity" wont spill in from the bus route. These are sick males- and guess what isnt Hamburg the town the Germans built? go figure. Hamburg is a town and village of very hateful people. Try being a different race and walk down the street. I am, and I got yell at by a passing car.This attitude shows in the students, I am guessing. Hamburg is an a bad place- toxic and poisonous.

Guess what Hamburg community, Chiachia is making fools of you. You cannot have board members with petitions, that simply is not the way it is done. You can only do it in elections. You have to actually go vote on election day for who you chose. If you don't like who won you cannot get petitions signed and have them removed, that does not work. Chiachia knows this but he is just using you to create chaos. He is making all of you who actually think you are accomplishing something look very stupid. Getting a petition signed has about as much of a chance of getting someone removed from the board as writing in your journal about it. So maybe you should pull out that journal tonight...."Dear journal"......

I read with interest an article in The Buff News about a Hamburg lawyer seeking to have some Board of Education members removed from their elected positions. Whenever I come across something of this sort I'm drawn to seek motivation for the action. So imagine my lack of surprise when near the conclusion of said article, I read that one of the targeted Board members was instrumental in securing a judicial Admonition, presumably for some ethics violation, against his law partner. Dah...what a no brainer.

Big story coming about Rick Jetter and what he has been doing in the district. I sent Concerned Hamburg recorded meetings with Rick, accordingly to we have learned he will be lucky to not have criminal charges pressed against him for FRAUD- We think this based on what we think of the law, but this will be a big story involving a particular MOM in the district. Whoa Dr. Jetter, you are as stupid as you look. So, we think. Didnt you learn your lesson in Kenton? You are trusting the wrong people little man.

Oh Boy this is getting good. Dan Chiacchia is collecting resumes from people who want to run for the Board. Dan are you sure you have a law degree?

Maybe Sally should send you her resume and you can see she has more public service experience as a Councilwoman and Deputy Supervisor of Hamburg than you can ever aspire to you in your life. Please resumes for public office? What a joke you are- are you sure you know the law or have you lost your mind???? In many people's opinion you have cracked. Opinions, of course.
