Hamburg School Board Boldly Burns Our Tax Dollars

Hamburg School Board will continue in an attempt to remove an elected official from her position.  This evening at Armor Elementary School at 6 p.m., you can witness the precursor to the Hamburg Fair, which opens this week on that large piece of property between So. Park and McKinley which pays nil in school taxes. 

Come One, Come All.  


Celebrate the ignorance of the Hamburg School Board as you watch them attempt to remove an elected official! 

Witness the disappearance of your tax dollars right before your very eyes.   

Sadly the uneducated members of the Hamburg School Board ( how many actually have advanced degrees or any degree?) have not realized that removing a public official from office stands the same chance as the Hamburg Agricultural Society being subjected to school taxes on their multi-million dollar enterprise.  

Meanwhile, the elementary school teachers can stack more children into the already crowded classrooms of over 32.

Even after all the bizarre things that have occurred in this district under Yoviene's watch, it's still absolutely shocking that the board majority insists on burning even more money on the Forcucci hearings when our schools need funding so badly.

Mr. Yoviene, how many teachers could we have hired with the money you have already spent on this prosecution of Forcuccu, whose offense appears to be being a harpy, if you believe the claims against her? How many more teachers could be hired with the money the board is blowing on continuing these juvenile hearings? And how many more teachers could be hired for the cost of the appeals of the board majority's inevitable decision to oust Forcucci over bush league stuff?

And what about the 1,543 Hamburg citizens who voted for Forcucci? How do you explain to all those good folks why you're trying to nullify their votes, Mr. Yoviene? We certainly could all understand if Forcucci was being removed for criminal activity (for instance, a crime such as has been alleged against Superintendent Jeter), but the accusations against her come nowhere close to criminality or anything more significant than being hard to deal with.

Does the board majority value the voting decisions of over 1,500 Hamburg adults so little that it's willing to spend an unbelievable amount of money to deny the people their chosen candidate for school board for less than the most serious reasons?

Stop all this insanity. Get back to work on important issues directly affecting the kids, their families, and the taxpayers.

Here's an idea Dave, Laura and the rest of you whiny School Board members.... if being on the board is such an inconvenience or you don't like someone who was elected, Just Step Down

Just Step Down and stop wasting our tax dollars

Yovienne was unbelievable at last night's meeting. His bizarre rantings against Forcucci, which at times bordered on hysteria, mirrored his accusations of her wrong doings (someone take pity and give the man a Xanax). What to me is the smoking gun that Jetter was targeted for the super's job from the get-go was Yovienne's preposterous statement that as Jetter was the only candidate to have witnessed Forcucci in action no other candidate could be considered. Yovienne couldn't possibly subject anyone else to her rantings. So, Jetter is given a $164,000 a year job, for which he is unqualified, to spare other excellently skilled individuals from an embarrassing situation...DAH!! To me Yovienne's revelation indicates beyond all doubt that it was intended from the onset that no one but Jetter was ever going to be the "chosen one".

This circus is a joke. Just a bunch of adults acting like children. Here are the facts as I see them......

1. Jetter's days in Hamburg are over. He will be lucky to keep his certification breaking the laws.

2. Catherine Forccuci and Sally Stephenson seem to be on the board to get their family and friends jobs.

3. David Yoviene probably knew about the Jetter incident.

4. Catherine Forccuci is coming off as a real self righteous bitch on tv.

Every single one of them should resign. Hamburg needs a new superintendent and a new board who don't have agendas but want to work together with the teaching staff to make the district the best it can be.

Buffalo 14213 said...

1;17 p.m.-work together with the teaching staff? Wait, do you mean the teachers that won't extend the school day for the el ed tikes, because the el ed teachers have the latest start time and earliest end time in the entire USA? Or do you mean the teaching staff that is so dull and stupid that they bought Jetter's bus hook line and sinker? WAIT- YOU MUST MEAN THE TEACHING STAFF THAT HAS THE BALLS TO TRY AND JAM A NEW CONTRACT DOWN A SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT IS IN CRISIS? The teaching staff that works so well with a BOE two years ago that turned down APPR? What teaching staff, the ones that bitch more about their jobs so much so the students know about it? What teaching staff are you referring to? The calibre of Hamburg teacher has gone down the shitter in the last 15 years. There are no longer intellectual giants and role models on the staff. Just peek into the Hills at the HHS? Really- as you see it? Take off your blinders. The teachers ONLY care about their pay checks and NOT your kids. I was shocked to see that agenda revised, revised and revised again so that the teachers can do the money grab Mr. Jetter promised. I bet that story will be told soon. Get a grip- I like Forcuci- she has a brain and asks questions. That alone will send you to the tar pits in dumb white suburban trash Hamburg NY. Yep all the others should go- but leave C. Forcucci- she is the best one of the bunch.

Anonymous said...

I was all for C. Forcucci until it was revealed that she held the district hostage to get a released teacher his job back.

I agree they should all resign and the district should start over.

To 4:32. I did not write the 1:17 post but I agree with it!!! Sally and Catherine have attempted to use their power on the board to benefit "family and friends". Their conflicts of interest and lack of professionalism are an ongoing problem that will no longer be tolerated. Also. the Buffalo 14213 post reminds me of the embarrassment the Hamburg teachers brought to the community. In all fairness, it was the union leadership who put the budget in jeopardy by trying to fight APPR --a federal mandate. The proposed Hamburg plan was perceived as the "easiest" around, yet they wouldn't agree to it. Concerning!

hamburg grad said...

5:37- What conflict of intertest? What lack of professionalism? What are you talking about? You sound like the other paranoia people in Hamburg. You know, when asked for concrete examples they cough up " well, I dont really know, I just know they are unprofessional and they do bad things ( because those are the lies sprewed around by a very hateful parent group lead by Danny Chiacchia who has a law partner whose nuts are in a vice with the the judical ethics commission or were in a vice last year). Cmon put your money where your mouth is- give some details. Or are you just one of the stupid hamburg masses that have hate session after hate session- alll record- with all the names and remarks of the haters on tape and handed over to the investigators. You know the haters of Hamburg who soiled holy grounds of churches to advanced the agenda of a very ill man and a very bizarre psycho school prinicipal of Boston Valley. If I had kinds in BostonI would never let them near that crazy man- James Martinez. Cmon tell us what you are talking about- Hamburg Bullshit Babble.

Please do not tell me that Dave Yoviene actually is saying that someone has a temper problem. Umm, Dave those of us who know you know you to be a dishonest man WITH A SERIOUS TEMPER. The world will come to know Dave Yovine in time. Dave is playing games with tax payers dollars and he can expect to be sued by the taxpayers because HE is personaly responsible. So, Dave if you think this is gonna end nicely- well, better hang on to whatever assets you have because YOU are gonna pay for it.

Your reply is typical of all Ad Hominem attacks. Never specifics, rather generalizations and innuendo. This is the standard employed by those who have nothing concrete to offer, especially when they fear exposure of wrong doing on their own or their colleagues' parts. There is a select group of human beings who really have no minds of their own and would rather be led by miscreants, liars, and charlatans than seek truth and apply intellegent reasoning. They simply love jumping on the Band Wagon. Again, I challenge anyone to relay a specific instance of either Forcucci or Stephenson engaging in one act as BOE members to benefit their friends and family.

To 1:17- the teachers at Hamburg have nothing to do with the dysfunction of the administration. The fact that the teacher salaries are one of the lowest in the county and student scores are one of the highest. The teachers are here because they care about the students- it would be nice to be able to say as much for the school
Board. If you think the level of educators in the HCSD are poor quality now, keep letting the wages drop and see who you get to pick from...

Anonymous said...

I have a question about the last hearing session. Dave Yoviene produced a text that seemed to suggest that Forcucci was trying to get him to agree to something. And he said he never replied. But then Forcucci produced his reply that seemed to confirm that he already agreed and there was a plan in place. So Yoviene was caught in a lie? Didn't anyone else catch that? I have a feeling that Coppola will tell him that these hearings must stop or he won't be able to get any interim superintendent to come to Hamburg. Seriously, If state ed refused to remove Dils for not coming to meetings, he's not going to remove Forcucci for losing her temper to an arrogant liar (you pick which one, there seems to be quite a few in Hamburg). This board is wasting our money. We are going to lose more teachers and taxes will skyrocket while they're bickering about Cat wagging her finger at Jetter?

Shamrock said...

7:54 anon. I might have to disagree with you on this. I had kids in the district and the kids were very motivated. My wife and I are both working professionals who place a high priority on our kids education. By the time the kids got to Ham Middle School, my wife's middle school they were not challenged at all. They NEVER came home with homework, because they are sitting in study halls. NO HOMEWORK. They had wasteful days called 'team days" a waste of academic time. We moved the kids to St. Bernadettes, and now they are in private high schools. We would love to send our kids to Hamburg, but dont think they have the finest teachers, and now it seems that the administration is a corrupt bunch of immoral children. Hamburg teachers belong at the bottom of the pay scale, because they work the shortest day. I say the good teachers and few- and far between. The bottom of the barrel? Hamburg already has it. Sorry, but the teachers in catholic schools make a fraction of what the lowest paid teachers in the county make in Hamburg, and they do a remarkable job. If you wanted to make it to the top of the pay scale, you shouldve been an accountant. Sorry, but Hamburg has a long way to go.....

Anonymous said...

I have a question. Were are the haters who run the Hamburg Educational Facts you should know? Why are they ignoring the teachers union who are preying on the district's corruption and asking for a 6 percent raise. I heard today that the teachers are planning not to come to the attendance days in late August. They know no one will do anything because Dave Yovienne is a patsy.

The school board decides the length of the student day- not the teachers. Study halls= a result of administration decisions to cut staff and has absolutely nothing to do with teachers. Your kids using thirst time effectively in their study halls to finish the work teachers assigned= a demonstration of maturity and good time management (but I'm sure those skills are no thanks to the teachers).
All teachers in the district are required by contract to be in their buildings from 7:59 to 3:20- it is the board (and fisher bus) who decide when to send student home. It is the administration, not the teachers, who have pushed for "team Days" and the continuance of social promotion through the middle school years. The lack of consistent t homework throughout the grades may be due to the lack of any curriculum director in the district for the pat few years and no training on common core. As a parent you should have at Lear been able to relay to your children the importance of reading if they had already mastered the in class work- or study and review at home if they had not.
Teachers are not martyrs- they did not enter the profession to be the subjects of your criticism when you think they "aren't doing enough". Catholic school teachers deal with muh smaller class sizes and a much different curriculum.
You're comparing apples to kumquats.

Here there and everywhere said...

10:20- You are right the teachers have Not one thing to do with anything that happens at the schools. As far as I can tell, you seem to thing just by showing up at 8 am and staying to 3:20 they did their job. What do my kids teachers at Union Pleasant do after my kids leave? I seem many of them at Tim Hortons and even Wegmans, when they should be at work. Poppycock, you are blaming administration. Last time I checked it was something like 300 teachers to 20 administrators? Sure the teachers would love a longer work day- right and an longer school year? Poppycock. And the curriculum is the same at the catholic schools-with the exception of Canisius High. Stop the sop story. Heck, in my next life I would love to be a Hamburg teacher- do nothing and get paid a boat load with a life time pension and be done at work at 3:20. What a life.

Anonymous said...

Dear 10:37... how long do you stay at work after your required work hours? From your expectations about teachers, I would imagine you toil long into the night-time hours. But, then again if you are in Tim Horton's or Wegmans around the time school lets out, I would guess you also have a work day that gets out early.
Teaching your children between the hours of 7:50 and 3;20 IS the teacher's job. What happens after those hours- is up to you- the parent. If you'd like your kid to be involved in extracurricular activities or extra review groups- that's up to you.
And, if you were employed in a place where there is a hierarchy of command, you'd know that those the lowest on the totem pole don't get to make the decisions- those at the top do. Would you like teachers to keep students in school after the buses go home just to make the school day longer- fine, there are school programs to accommodate this. But then I'm sure you'd complain about a lack in transportation, which, once again is NOT controlled by teachers.
Catholic schools VOLUNTARILY give their students standardized tests, they are not MANDATED to give them and their job performance is not measured by them. Catholic schools DO NOT HAVE TO follow the Common Core- HCSD does. Catholic schools also oftentimes test and retest and retest students in High Schools to improve their test scores- HCSD does not. Judging by your view on work and the value of rigorous education, I'm sure your students will really enjoy this aspect of their Catholic education.
But, I guess one good thing does come out of this extreme dislike for the teachers in HCSD- you have chosen to place your kids in a Catholic school, which means the HCSD teachers do not have to deal with discourse like this on a daily basis. But I'm sure the "bargain value" teachers at your child's catholic school really enjoy your views on the value of education. But then again, if you'd really like to save some money and think you can do a MUCH BETTER job than trained teachers, there's always the option of home schooling.
And, there's always the option to move- HCSD has been "in crisis" for the past 10 years and has gone through more superintendents than can be counted on one hand. If you're all for wage freezes for workers when the bosses make bad decisions, I'd be sure to relay this to your employer.

I've continuously had kids in the Hamburg schools for more than 15 years now.

The problem is not the teachers.

The problem is the complete and utter politicization of education in Hamburg, which is showing its worst face in the ugly dysfunction of a school board that lacks the maturity of the high school students its mission is to protect.

10:37, you are a frikin idiot. I would live to come to your place of employment as a consultant and break down your day , find the waste and tell you what a horrible job you do. Do you have a masters degree? What is your profession? Please tell because you seem to have no problem busting on teachers! Also maybe you could have done some more homework and learned to proofread, your post is filled with errors. Teachers all over this country bust hump to get kids to learn, help them grow and with real life issues, often protect them from inadequate care at home and work for hours each day after work or at home. If you got out 3 for the day, would you work until 5 or 6 off the clock because many teachers do. Oh how I want to know what you do for a living, please share with us. By the way, teachers pay into the pention, but even more important, with a masters degree and 6 years of college in the private sector you can make well over $33,000 or so to start. Pay teachers what a lawyer makes to start out and no pension necessary due to the fact that there would be enough to invest. More than that, I know many lawyers and bakers that work less and make more! The fact the the community feels they can bust on teachers sickens me, every president, doctor, surgeon and hero was taught by TEACHERS. The stock market dump of 2008 was due to bankers greed an lack of regulation that let that happen, do we have blogs to bust on every banker? Or was it the leaders that let that happen, just like Hamburg, corruption at the top ruins an organization. If you are not directly involved INSIDE the educational walls, shut it, if you want teacher pay and schedule as you eluded to, get your ass to college and go for it, something tells me it won't be as easy, lucrative or as laid back as you precive. Everyone's job can be very hard, even the Burger King people bust hump. Please stop saying Poppycock and learn about what you are commenting on. Don't forget to fill us in on where you work, then I will learn about that profession and probably tell you what a waste if life you are too!

Danny boy was not man enough to show his face at Monday's hearing. I wonder if he will show tonight because he is an educational champion who had acted so professional himself at meetings. Can't wait to see the tapes so he can see what an schmuck he looks like. He had so much time for hate meetings with big nose (you know who I mean), he should have plenty of time to come see the fruits of his labor, wasted time money and the actual worsening of hamburg education to no attention being paid to programming, curriculum and planning. The summer months are ment for districts to take time to better the education, with Jetter and hearings hamburg EDUCATION has been forgotten. Show up tonight Dan and declare your candidacy for 14-15 you spend so much time and $ running and supporting those who have done soooo much right. Run yourself or are you to afraid of losing, man up and show us how amazing you are. To all the uneducated parents of the parent group, why won't 1 of you run? Because you know none of you have what it takes. Keep having hate meetings but don't actually of anything to help the problem!

What the community wants to know- why does Miss Giallella and Mr. Martinez both still work for Hamburg. Both should be fired soon so the school year can start fresh. Why are they still around? Martinez is a NUT. How many letters do parents have to write to get that guy away from kids. He is crazy. I know atleast 5 parents who wrote letter to dirty boy Jetter about lunitic Martinez. Why is he still working.

Oh you gotta be so pissed right now because I have you nailed. You hate your wasted college degree and sulk while trying to look busy in your SUV and the bust on your spouse for their work hours!

I know many, many teachers who are heroes and incredibly hard working, especially at the elementary level. Amazing, over the top professionals
(at all levels but the elementary is SO especially taxing and demanding). I have a lot of respect and admiration for the teachers who have a strong sense of purpose and demonstrate continued commitment despite the politics of this community. Their sense of purpose and responsibility is their compass. They do not blame others, yet press on in the face of adversity, politics, bad press, etc. However, by the tone of the 10:00am poster, I can only assume you are not one of those highly professional teachers because your writing revealed your lack of class. I can tell from your post that I would not want you teaching my child. You can be passionate and defensive without being unprofessional (same problem that BOE member Catherine and Sally has). Professional, articulate, well mannered role models are needed in this community. When people are on the defensive, character (or lack thereof) is revealed. The message: Take a stand with class, especially those teaching and governing our children.

Ankle bracelets. If the teachers would please clock in in the morning, slap on an ankle bracelet and perhaps a wrist bracelet also, then the school safety officer could easily monitor not only where the teachers walk, if they leave the building during their lunch, but also if their level of stress should drop during their workday, at which time they could be promptly reprimanded, raising their stress level to the acceptably high level as designated by 10:37.

Hey Heinrich Road mom...Martinez is still working because, as it has now becoming increasingly apparent, Jetter was using him as his right hand man...mutual protection. Letters to Jetter probably deposited immediately into the circular file

2:21 what does class have to do with anything? If class is what you want send your kids to a charm school. Do you mean you want idiots- who don't stand up to liars and cheaters like jetter? Looks to me that the ladies on the board that piss u and other off the most are the only ones asking questions. Dave yoviene is a liar and lives under a rock - but that's ok? Flynn is a monster who shut Down a meeting. But what has Catherine and Sally done? Just another dumber than dumb hamburg resident concerned about image and truth. Give us a break.class? Is that all that matters. Looks like the teachers are all ruffled up- the shortest work day makes millions for the bus company. The teachers are dim enough to let this go on for decades. A very sick school community.

Professionalism counts writes:

I, like many, understand that communication has several components; what is said (obviously), how it is said, tone, command of the english language, delivery, etc. I want our community and board members to truth seek, ask questions, and be relentless in the pursuit of school improvement (student learning, accountability, budget, etc). What you don't seem to understand is that even when someone raises legitimate questions and potentially makes good points, poor delivery and lack of professionalism overrides the message and the person doesn't look like they have self control, stability, or strong communication skills. The message is lost. Instead of thinking, "hey, good point, we need answers", one thinks...whoa, what's the matter with her? Are you implying that you are unable to relate to someone who is highly persuasive, articulate, seeks truth and justice yet does so in a controlled and professional manner? Do you believe results will not be achieved unless tempers, interruptions, and drama is involved?

To anon at 4:19: do you work there!? Cuz that's just about what happens. I've seen it. They are this close to having ankle bracelets.

And to Jeffrey b.: if the teachers do not conduct themselves with some class and decorum, who's left to show good examples and set boundaries for your children? By the way you speak here, it's obvious that you must be a perfect role model for your children or other students.

And, no one seems to mention the types of students the district has. They are more interested in who's saying what on Facebook or texting incessantly on their cell phones, instagramming every moment and emotion they have. Then when asked to put their cell phone away, they are irritated that you interrupted their social interaction. They may even threaten to sue the district for various violations of their rights. Or how about the young spec ed kids that are having various and multiple melt downs during the course of the day because they couldn't find the red crayon. Or maybe the middle schooler whose dad is incarcerated for some reason and can't handle living with his 70+ year old grandparents. I'll bet if you we're put in front of a class of 30 4th graders, they would eat you alive. I sure would like to be a fly on the wall to see what you would do.

This district, as all districts do, has a very diverse population from welfare recipients to some of the highest paid professionals. And the products of each of those households ends up in the classroom setting. That has been the case since I was in school and I'm pretty sure that's always been the case.

So give us your wisdom Jeffrey b. And tell us all how we would be acting.

Buffalo said...

6.24- that is not what is stated. No one on this blog can give any specific example of when Sally or Catherine were uncivil. I have been at those meetings and it is David yoviene and the community mobsters Danny and eddy who hijacked this school district. Review the facts and give examples. Then, look at the raises that Jodi McNamara and Jen lackie got for jetter. And they are getting another raise this week. Please some give examples. The silence is because you have been lied to by ambulance chaser Danny. Please someone give examples of Sally and Catherine acting up? Your minds are easily twisted.

WHo the hell does Wendy Evendon, the Krenciks and the Piazzas think they are. They are NO BODIES. They bring embarrassment to themselves. Someone should question that load Wendy about her contract with the school district to take pictures of children. Does anyone want someone so angry and vile taking pictures of children? These are angry people with nothing going on in their lives other than to spread their filthy lifestyles of hate and disgust. What the hell were they doing in executive session last year. I heard they had a plan cooked up with the village trouble maker Mr. Melz and the thug man Martinez. What are these people afraid of? Do they realize how foolish they look and how sick most of the community think of them. Go get a life and hit the gym if you have so much time.

Go to the Hamburg website. Click on Administration, Human Resources, Bargaining Unit Agreements. On the right side you will see 5 agreements, click on more. You will then see Teamsters Local 264. That is where the secretaries are. If you notice, their contract ended June 30, 2012. No raise, no contract for 3 years, thanks to Barbara Sporyz. Now look under the Bargaining Unit Agreements. Please click on Individual Employment Agreements. Enjoy, You better look at them before they remove them. That's where all the raises went.

What a hilarious scene. Murphy asking multiple times if James Martinez was present as he cowered silently in a chair at the back of the room. Finally, after several people turned to look at him, he replied in this weak, mewly voice that he was not going to testify, after which he left the room and sat in the hall outside the hearing room. All he needed to complete the scenario of the perfect fool was a dunce cap...LOL Typical response of a bully when someone stands up to him and exposes him for the coward he is.

Buffalo 6:48 asked "Please someone give examples of Sally and Catherine acting up? Your minds are easily twisted."
Poster 8:19 provided an example. Here's another one (for starters):
I recall watching the news a couple of years ago when my entire family sat in shock as they showed a clip of Sally angrily yelling (I believe threatening) the previous superintendent. Her voice seemed shaky and barely audible due to her anger. It was embarrassing to say the least. She clearly was not in control of her emotions and so obviously driven by a personal vendetta given the rightful termination of her daughter. Her voice was cracking, she looked shaken. Not good leadership and obviously personal given the conflict of interest which is both known and since been published numerous times in the Buffalo news. So back to the poster. My minds is not twisted, but rather, the way you attempt to rationale or defend these personally driven outbursts is!

uptown said...

11:27- Perhaps you are referencing Sally scolding Mr. Achramovitch- before she was elected and came in first place with over 1,500 votes from the community? What is embarrassing is you fail to mention this lore of "conflict of interest". You clearly have a personal disdain for someone you likely never met. So, what is the conflict of interest? Let see, she doesn't allow Dan Chiacchia and Andy Fleming and the questionable white males that have been sucking Hamburg dry for years to get away with their shit any longer. Or maybe it is Keith Fisher and his 6 million dollar bus gravy train that Sally realizes is a money grab in exchange for your children having the shortest school day in the USA. Embarrassing, were you embarrassed with TOM Flynn threw his books in a fit of rage because Catherine asked for a NYS Audit- which happened and which you shall get the results of shortly- get ready to blush. Are you embarrassed each and every time that nut Dan CHiacchia stands up and talks in demonic circles? OR were you at Eddy Boy, Weight watcher Wendy and crazy Martinez' hate sessions- were you embarrassed there? How about embarrassment when you learned your superintendent is having an affair with the HMS principal and lied about his car after a day of day drinking when they both should've been at work. Now, you are telling me that you are embarrassed because Sally scolded Steve. Really- the man who brought Richie to Hamburg and was universally hated by everyone except his exercise partner and aerobics extraordinarre Doctor Calkins. Embarrassed, you ought to be embarrassed that you mind is so tiny and so small that you do not realize how stupid you sound. Cmon, you must have something better than that pea brain? Hamburg- the town that makes hypocrites and haters.

1:15 pm- you must be out back smoking the wacky weeds with the mind benders. You clearly have NO idea what you are talking about. Where were you for the first year sally baby was on the board. Funny, her conflict and vendetta must have miraculously appeared when Danny Boy made the story up in the 5 (recorded) hate meetings he orchestrated. You know the ones where he stood in front of mindless Hamburg people and flat out lied. I think you must be down there in the valley of Boston with the Russians and James Martinez with one of the big arse bongs he keeps in his office. Nice try sweety, but try again. Danny and Andy are suffering from a bit of loose bowel- their diapers keep filling up with the shit coming out of them.

I watched so many people at these hearings roll their eyes and get disgusted, all I have to say is, you wanted this now sit and watch it like adults, if you think it's ridiculous it's because it is and you should be ashamed of yourselves. You got what you fought so hard for now only a few of you even come to watch. Friedman used a rookie tactic by interrupting so much it threw off the entire night . Then he rufused like a total baby to let others testify and wanted Balaya to drive 10 hours to be asked his hack cross examination questions. Then he begs to have a grown adult demonstrate yelling, totally out if line. Now, Hoover and Freidman are paid by the district why do you think Murphy is being blackballed. Everything about Hamburg is so dam shady. The board makes the decision, we know how they will vote, vote now and the lets get to the appeal. But for those in the audience complaining, smile and watch the show you begged and begged and begged and begged and begged and begged for !

It must be an uplifting experience to realize that the BOE president has such a poor grasp of grammar and spelling that recipients of his email can instantly recognize what is and what isn't his "style". Perhaps he should be allowed to sit in on some high school level English classes. As it now stands, no one can do much about his grammatical errors but he could at least use a spell checker for his emails.

Tresmond's Testimony for the Defense.
Jim Tresmond contradicted virtually all of Yovienne's testimony, exposing him as the liar and Jetter/Chiachia suck-up that he is. Tresmond said that as BOE president, Yovienne was in over his head. Tresmond, who attended all Executive sessions until his resignation last December, said he never saw any action on the part of Forcucci that warranted any of the charges against her or her dismissal.

Those four jerks will vote her off the BOE but they will never receive approval from State Ed for this action.

12:59- ITS BETTER THAN THAT- THE HIGHEST COURT IN NYS WILL ORDER FOCUCCI'S LEGAL EXPENSES. AND, THEN LIKE ED LILLY IN LEW-PORT A FEDERAL LAWSUIT WILL BE FILED AGAINST YOVIENE, HEETER, HALL, COLLINS, STEVENSON, AND FLYNN. THEY WILL LOSE AND THEIR ASSETS WILL BE TAKEN IN THE FEDERAL SUIT. KINDA SUCKS FOR HEETER- DONT YOU THINK IT WAS TOUGH ENOUGH FOR HER IN HER BANKRUPCY CASE. THIS IS GONNA BE ONE BIG MESS AND TOO BAD FOR DAVID- YOUR DADDY WAS RIGHT YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS RUNNING A BUSINESS.

Oh boy- the strip club must be closed- Christina Whipple tweeting her heart out. HeY Stripper mom, why do you only tweet the stevenson and forcucci stuff. Guess the delving into the records might hurt a certain employee? really, does anyone in Hamburg want a woman who owns a strip club that was shut down for drugs and prostitution in their schools? and what does go on with her and Danny Boy?

Lawyer asks " What would it be like to be in Catherine's shoes.

what would it be like to be rude, aggressive,maybe not too bright,

There are so many ways to be a whistle blower, or truth teller. Acting a little nutty doesnt win votes.

but I havent seen anyone on that board not look nuts.

In light of the allegations against Jetter, is it really a surprise that he might not have been forthcoming when Forcucci asked for those legal documents?

If-again, if--Jetter was willing to lie to the police and hundreds of concerned supporters about his car being vandalized (with the implication being that Forcucci supporters may have done it), why would anyone think he would work cooperatively with Forcucci on the production of the documents she requested?

For whatever reason, Jetter and Forcucci seem to have butted heads. Maybe it was a personality conflict. Maybe it was political. Regardless, it's a totally minor problem that the board majority is trying to snowball into punishable misconduct.

It's certainly not grounds for removal of Forcucci from the board, and if the board majority votes to remove her anyway, they should all step down when the State refuses to allow Forcucci's removal because everyone outside of Piazza's group knows the board doesn't have legitimate grounds for what it's trying to do.

The board majority is forewarned: your minor civility claims against Forcucci are not proper grounds for removal. If you vote to remove her and the State sides with Forcucci, you should voluntarily hold yourself accountable for this huge waste of taxpayer money by resigning. All of you, not just Mr. Yoviene.

Considering how long an appeal may take and how much it may cost, the smart move right now is for the board majority to extend an olive branch and end the hearings, unify behind a commitment to civility from all board members going forward, and get back to the work of the district.

Are any of the board majority willing to do the right thing for the community instead of focusing on their own faction politics?

Just wondering said...

Who is Dr.Joan L Johnston Hamburg 14075? Is this one of the make believe people in the head of paranoia Mr. Martinez. Perhaps she is a Russian Helga?

Anonymous said...

Joan L Johnston is a name made up by Jetter and he made up a email address too from his Time Warner account. I heard him talking about it. He talks a lot.
