Hamburg Superintendent Search- a charade

According to today's Buffalo News, 19 qualified individuals applied for the open position of Hamburg Central School Superintendent.   The Boars of Education have selected a 1/2 dozen or so candidates to appear before a panel of staff and community members to face a myriad of questions in an appearance  to identify the most qualified candidate.

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.

( in mens stores shirts are sold by neck measurement- time to leave the little boys department, Richie, and buy a big boy shirt.) 

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.

It appears that Yoviene and Heeter like to keep their promises, when it suits them. In this particular case they would be keeping their promise to Jetter, to make him the Superintendent. If history is an indicator of Yoviene and Heeter's future conduct, they would double cross Jetter if a douch bag attorney tricked 60 people to come to a board meeting and groan at them. It really is amazing that "little man" local attorney has the board so scared by just convincing a handfull of people to attend "community meetings" and board meetings. Don't these board members understand that these handfull of people all voted against them on May 21, 2013? All of these people are really mad becase Joan Calkins lost the May 2013 election. Many of them don't know why they are mad or what is going on, they just hate certain board members, so they attend and complain. Boy are some people stupid.

Wow concerned - you were quiet for so long I thought (hoped) you found something productive to do with your time.

"Hamburg could have the pick of the brightest and most experienced administrator". What are you smoking Hamburger? Any bright and experienced Supt. will know s/he will be attacked immediately after the appointment, so why apply in the first place......unless of course that experience was lousy enough to result in being released leaving no option but to try to come here.

We heard that she lost her job as a teacher while her lover was stealing money from the PTO and she knew?

Wendy said...

Dave Yoviene is not only a hypocrite, but a liar. We hope they hire Richie, then all the teachers, like the nurses, will get big fat labor contract raises. So where was Danny and Eddy tonight- they care so much about the district, but not about the budget. Whoa momma, the shoe is gonna drop. Wait til these tables turn.

Anonymous said...

Richie never presented a budget before in his life. Did he even have a paper route? Does he have one iota of concern for the finances of the district? Or was he preaching to that knob Amy Tack-ass the president of the teachers union. The teachers union wont agree to lengthen the elementary school day, so 2/3rds of the Hamburg teachers would actually have to work more than 5 hours a day.

Candy Lane- said...

David did you not come to my house and tell me that the district spends too much money on legal bills and that you wanted to fire Harris Beach? I stood at my door and listened to you and I said sure, I will vote for this guy and the other ladies. I still have your magnet on my frig. NOW, I learned that you and your crazy board hired Hodgson and Russ- just another Harris Beach and a second lawfirm just in case. This is on top of the 100K that you gave to the other lawyer. So Dave you are a liar? Really, and you expect me to open my wallet and pay more taxes. I cant wait til the budget vote- I for one will have everyone in this community out to vote DOWN the budget. I dont care what you want, you wont get one more dollar from me.

Is it true that the guy Laura Heeter had an affair with (when she lived out of state) was a PTA member...and then they both got caught stealing money "from the children?" I thought Laura's gimmick line is "let's do what's best for the KIDS." If this evloving story is true, was she doing what was best for the kids when she cheated on her husband and stole from "the kids?" Gee.....

Why isnt danny boy or rink guard eddie running for school board? To scared. They think they know everything then let them run. Guess what the numbers are dwindling because guess what Danny any intelligent person can see that you have a sick vendetta against Sally. Did she hurt your business over on South Park? Is it because the law firm of CHacchia and Fleming can no longer recruit clients from Felmings serving on the bench?

RIck Jetter is a kid running our schools.

Senior Staff & Taxpayer

Anonymous said...

What we heard is that it has already been determined that MR.JETTER is going to become the head of our schools. Why did our school officials use our tax dollars to hire someone to find a good match for our school district when a commitment has been made before anything ever got started? We pay far too much in taxes and now we just wasted how much to pay someone for this. Now we read about huge pay increases with our taxes for school employees to support Mr. Jetter. Seniors do not get pay increases, we are static and this is not sustainable for most of us. We have a rich man running our school officials, he needs to realize that as seniors we have to give up many things if we are to be able to stay in our homes. Please have us seniors in mind when handing out our tax dollars for this when this is not education involved. Seniors need to be considered

I have that same magnet on my frige. Laura Heeter, David Yovine and Catherine Forcucci. Cut that salary back 19 applicants, wake up it is a buyers market.

Bankruptcy with no pay back to creditors. Managing our school finances and reports of flirty emails between her and supt. Sounds like a sound person in control of school affairs.

He is ambitious and will say & do anything and give away the store, to get what he wants. He should use his own dollars for campaigning.

A candidate with a Doctorate in Education, two Masters Degrees and over 30 yrs. experience wasn't even granted an interview!

George said...

Rick Jetter is out of town for the week. He left the school district for the week to turn the superintendent search upside down. Yovienne is on tape promising Jetter the job. The recording mentions the role Don Ogivle has in the this search, even though its Mr. Coppolla running the search. Its down to Rabey from Depew and Jetter. Dave Yoviene spews his gossip all over town, and now people in Depew know about Rabey. There is a third candidate, but Don set him up with a job. Watch out Hamburg, You are stuck with dirtbag- call Kenton or Tonawanda. Or ask his wife, she knows. Its all on tape and will be sent to Concerned Hamburger asap.

How is information about candidates known to you? Isn't this process confidential? Sad

George said...

I heard about the three candidates from Ed Piazza, Donna Miranda, Jeffrey Rabbey and little boy blue.

Ed was shooting off his mouth when he thought no one could hear.

Little Boy Blue,
Come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow,
The cow's in the corn;
Where is that boy
Who looks after the sheep?
Under the haystack
Fast asleep.
Will you wake him?
Oh no, not I,
For if I do
He will surely cry.

Richard Jetter is a big cry baby. He couldnt handle the interview process so he smoked up some weird tale of his, and ran out of town in fear of crying. We are checking his work history with the Buffalo Phiharmonic. Another tale going around is that Richie gave up a job with the philharmonic to work at a bad boy school in Amherst. This is being checked out.

I heard today that Dave Yoviene is involved in the Hamburg Schools. I would like to tell you that this is a big mistake I have know Dave a long time. Dave is not the person you want around you schools.

How many times have the police and children protective services been to the house of Rick jetter??? He is evil. Ask jetters neighbors. Even the priest at st Amelia's- across the street from jitters house has called the cops on him. Often the many parents and staff at st Amelia's witness jetter and his CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY spouse doing less than family like things. The cops are watching jitters on Eggert rd. just saying

I met Jetter today while he was whining to Armor PTSA about not having enough money from the state to do what he wants for the schools, how his health is declining due to stress and how he has to regularly take naps on the sofa in his office before meetings. Very unprofessional. He also joked that UB should give him an honorary JD because he has learned so much about litigation lately. Entitled?

James Bond style said...

Jetter is gonna learn alot more about the law very shortly- he is one stupid guy. How about those tapes of Tom Flynn calling Dave Yoviene and Dan chiacchia calling Dave Yoviene to harass him about his vote to put "the" teacher on paid leave. Lol- Flynn, you better start saving those pay checks and stop hanging around in the bars guzzling down the booze. You gonna need all the nickels you can put together when the lawyers get a hold of the tapes. Jetter is the laughing stock of the school community. Naps? Does Heeter come in and snuggle with him? Why does he have a couch in his office anyhow- now that's unprofessional.
