All parents stayed behind

From a reader~~~~~

On Tuesday evening March 26, 2014 at 7 p.m., the Hamburg Teachers union presented to a handful of folks the great losses to the school district because of the last few years of "defunding".  It is estimated that Hamburg has lost over $15,000,000 over the last 4 school years.  Sadly for the children of Hamburg Central Schools , this is not your father's Oldsmobile (sic). 

Over the course of the last decade not only has the money dried up, but so too has the ethical foundation of a once morally emblematic school district.   We have learned that less than 20 parents attended last evenings presentation given by small group of teachers desperate to save their jobs, and exhibiting their own self-interest which appears year after year at "budget time".  


The teachers dubbed the evening, "No Parent Left Behind", a clever play on "No Child Left Behind".  

Parents and community members were urged to reach out to  lawmakers and tell them to fund the schools, and maintain programming by opening the taxpayers purse to douse the school with money.   At the same time, the teachers are in the midst of contract negotiations and have asked the district for over 5% raise.   Meanwhile, a dysfunctional school board has opened the public purse and given over $165,000 in compensation to a young buck, with no experience,  fresh on the superintendents circuit.   As interim superintendent, Richard Jetter handed out raises and stipends to all those who gave him a wink and a nod in support of his ambitions, did his dirty work, and pretended to have respect for the foolish man.  It is nearly April 1st, and the public has not seen a school budget and the only utterance which resonates in the community are the words of School Board President David Yoveine in support of a budget that goes over the tax cap.   

Meanwhile, a group of "parents" organized in the Fall of 2013 and had no fewer than 5 community meetings attended by staff, parents and even students for the sole purpose of condemning a teacher and three board members.  It has been reported that not once did the "community" group raise any issue related to school budgets, funding, tax increases, decreases, programs, classes, sports, art, drama or intellectual advancement of children.  Rather,  the group of scornful individuals pointed their collective fingers at those whom they do not know, did not make an effort to know,  but rather set out in a poorly constructed campaign to destroy.  


Three of the community meetings were shamefully held at Christian Churches- St. John the Baptist Church in Boston, Hamburg Presbyterian Church in the Village of Hamburg and The Wesleyan  Church in the Town of Hamburg.   These venues were used to orchestrate a "community" effort to exert dominance over those who were fairly elected by the people (not rigged voter machines) to positions of public service, and to spew venom and hate.   The Hamburg Fairgrounds, which pays no tax to the schools, was used after being organized by the Hamburg Village Mayor.  

The vitriolic attacks by a local attorney and others culminated in reports sent to the Commission of Education, which were used as press releases to further harass in an attempt to intimidate the subjects of the report.  Petitions were created, petitions were signed, stories were manufactured, police reports filed and in a blaze of scorn the true fabric of the Hamburg School Community was sent to Albany.    A tell-all story appeared in Buffalo News days before Thanksgiving 2013 which no one should be proud of. 


The Commissioner returned a decision to the Hamburg School Community denying the petitions and urging the school community to hold hands and sing kumbaya.  

So, there you stand Hamburg School Community- the bank account is empty, the leaders are corrupt and the moral compass of the community if off kilter.   Lawyers, Doctors, Judges, Police Officers, Teachers, Nurses, Bankers, Businesspeople, Homemakers and Do Nothings have forever branded Hamburg Schools as a despicable institution filled with hate and contempt.  

What a marvelous lesson to teach children.

So, while the staff of the school community hold out their hands looking for more money from Albany and from their neighbors to fund salaries and programming, one must ask if its not better to stay behind and not engage in the vileness that has become the Hamburg Central School District.

You forgot to add blogger to your list of those who have helped shape this district in disrepair. You certainly have played your part, stoking the flames of rumor an innuendo, defaming those whose ideas and opinions were contrary to yours, while placing those close to you on a pedestal. Stand up and take a bow, Bravo!

Gee Concerned Hamburg, why don't you write about the parent haters, headed by the local attorney, that are planning a meeting to go after the HHS Varsity Girls Basketball Coach. A clear indication that Richard Jetter has NO control of the District, he is letting the haters run the place. Maybe the Varsity Coach should go to the police and file a police report. Or may Cubby can file it for her. Nice leadership Cubby!!! Haters on the loose in Hamburg NY.

Mike H said...

Why don' they just ask if the Basketball coach would resign if the lawyer doesnt like her. He is such an important person that he coulld probably do a "deal" with her, or extort her into quitting. Cubby??? That is hilarious. Jetter and his designer personality is a joke- his personality changes every time he buys a self help book.

Candy Man said...

The girls basketball coach is terrible and the girls softball coach is the crazy one also. She goes out drinking with the seniors on the varsity girls team. The team gets fake IDs and they go out down town, everybody knows all about it. The only reason the girls soft ball team was any good was because of the father who volunteers to help. Get rid of the softball coach and get someone sane. Class of 2011

It is apparently again, all about Rick Jetter and his feelings. What about our kids, their teachers and the rest of the employees? I don't care to hear one more time about Rick Jetters feelings. Rick Jetters 200 grand salary as superintendent and his rich benefit package doesn't careit is a show. He is devious. Rick Jetter should give it up the act we are beginning to see right through him. Steve Achramovitch boy.

Umm, the law says that if you have 4 million bucks in fund balance and no change in enrollment ya cant cut jobs. I say sue Rick Jetter- he is incompetent, and his lies are coming up to surface. David Yoviene is in on the cover-up. Calm before the storm.

Boy did Laura Heeter look horrible tonight. She sure looked a little nervous.

Not as horrible as Tom Flynn who works at M and T Bank- wait til the election time- that guy will be lucky if he gets 2 votes will all the shit coming his way. That Cam Hall who is running should keep his distance- the dirt is coming ala Hamburg Educational Facts You Should Know Style.

Gee Tom, how long did you think you could hide? Yes Laura did look like shit, but she is full of shit and a rotten creature- so walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, must be a duck? Jetter thinks he is insulated, but his trousers are gonna be....wellll... that really wouldnt do much to a man who.....welll... umm....check on the ceiling in his office. Thats all folks...

Cubby budgeted 220,000 for legal fees to be paid to Hodgson Russ- the new sheriff in Hamburg. Funny though, we found a strange Hamburg link http://www.hodgsonruss.com/applications/AttorneyBiography/biography.aspx?lid=6&par%3a%40intIdent=71&QToK=%2b5o4vEc4H8Dtn5Cf8UC3bA%3d%3d

The new lawyers have blood relations to the Village of Hamburg Judicial System- ehem- and to the lawyers of Donald Ogivle at E1Boces. It all looks really odd from the birds eye perch. Birdies are watching from the roof tops.

Now it might look innocent, but an appearance of impropriety goes a long was in lawyer land. So, President Yoviene, what do you think about those legal budgets- $220,000 - didnt you tell the voters you were gonna stop those legal fees- another lie you told the voters.

You hired a nitwit- akak Cubby- who really is "not too bright". Cubby doesnt know what he is doing so he collects his 165K, then budgets 220,00 for Hodgson Russ Lawyers- its in the budget folks- have a peek. Now, that is over 100,000 more than what Joan et al budgeted for Harris Beach (RIP in Hamburg). So, what is the Tom Flynn and Cam hall Connection- well that piece will wait until May.

Pond Scum rises right to the surface- you can see it- its the slimy shit on top- the scum of the pond.

What lies and corruption lie below the pond scum, well those will surface in good time. Keep working real hard, the birdies are chirping.

That budget mtg lastnight hardly attended, where are Ed and Dan? Ed we miss you trolling around saying stupid things trying to sound like you know what you are talking about. We were getting used to Dan showing up at the end of meetings and making a fool of himself. Nothing does justice like a lawyer looking like a dunce in the Buffalo News.
Most people seemed sober- others drugged up on zanax. Is Laura Heeter OK, even the teachers are now saying she is a two face stupid liar with zero morals.

Dear TOM FLYNN, you ran your mouth last night and you were expecting the applause from the audience, but it didn't come because that drunk attorney and fool side kick of his were not there. You know Tom, a lot of people wonder how you got your wife. She is an attractive, seemingly intelligent women, what they hell would she want with your awkward, goofy ass?

Hey Hamburg Teachers, don't forget it was "Goofy TOM FLYNN" that said "shame on the Hamburg Teachers" a little over a year ago, when you followed the Hamburg Watchdog's lead and voted down APPR. Tom Flynn does not care about the teachers. He also does not care about the kids. He only cares about himself and those he is aligned with.

We live in Kenmore, Mr. Jetter is a ill man. He HATES strong women. Lots of people from Eggert Road have said that CPS is at his house. He called the police on parents in Kenmore and had to leave Kenmore Middle School because he was having an affair with his student's mother. The kid, now about 27, was mocked so badly because the weasel teacher, Jetter, who is smaller than the middle school kids, was screwing a parent. He also was having an affair with another teacher after he married the mother of his student, of course he knocked her up first. He has deep Deep DEEEP issues, just wait Hamburg, he will show his colors soon. He accused a kid on my street of starting a fire in the bathroom, and then called the cops. All made up in his very sick mind. Lets guess he put a couch in his office- thats what he likes to use for the WEAK females. Then he gives them raises. So, if you see a female getting a big raise its because she "put out". He threatens women, and those he cant he tries to scare. He is one sick guy...ask Kenmore and Tona wanda moms.
