Alas, the charade!
Concerned Hamburger would like to advise the semi-finalists- don't waste your time interviewing. Hamburg Board President David Yoviene and board members Flynn, Collins, and Heeter have promised Jetter the permanent job.
Concerned Hamburger has learned that the chosen candidate is pipsqueak and Don Ogilve lacky- Richie Jetter.

Richie, who was foolishly appointed interim superintendent by the Boars of Education in July 2013 has been using his interim position to campaign for the permanent position. What has Richie promised the unions, which are all represented on the search committees? Concerned learned that Richie used district money to buy school bus books and squishy squeezie toys for the staff and students. The interim came bearing gifts, and using other peoples money to buy them. Additionally, it was revealed to Concerned Hamburger, that Richie has promised a big fat raise to the teachers, in exchange for their support in the selection process.
Just as a reminder to our readers, in July 2013, the Boars of Education voted to give Richie $170.00 per day to act as a superintendent. Yet, Richie has no prior experience in carrying out the duties of a superintendent. Strangely, the three new candidates of the Board of Education, David Yoviene, Laura Heeter and Catherine Schrauth- Forcucci- ran for office on the promise they would reduce administrative salaries. Their campaign literature promised the taxpayers of Hamburg that they would reduce the costs associated with the superintendent, but this promise was put to the curb when hiring Richie as interim.
Richie Jetter has NO experience as a superintendent, and less than 3 years in a central office administrative position. Richie Jetter arrived in Hamburg at the bequest of S. Achramovitch. Prior to Hamburg, Richie was an elementary school principal with questionable experience at best.
Hamburg could have the pick of the brightest and most seasoned administrators, but it appears for what ever reason, Richie has gotten the wink and the nod for the position. Concerned has learned, bright Richie is not. It was reported to Concerned Hamburger that Thomas Flynn the third was rather vocal at a local tavern about his curious reasons for supporting Richie. Tom the third should take care as you never know who can hear what you say in public.
In what world, does an immature, ill-experienced pipsqueak land in a job making almost more than the Governor of the State of New York? Mr. Yoviene, Concerned recalls your anger at the outrageous salary of S. Achramovitch, do you fail to see your hypocrisy?
So semi-finalists of the superintendent's position, you might be wise to call Mr. Vincent Coppola and have a stern conversation with him regarding your candidacy for the Hamburg Superintendent position. It has been stated that the search is a charade much like the last two searches that brought Hamburg- Mark Crawford, who wised up and walked out, and Steve Achramovitch, who never wised up and got pushed out.
What will the fate of Richie be in Hamburg?
As for the community members who seemingly would like Richie as superintendent because you can push the pipsqueak around, please remember, you reap what you sow.
