Hamburg School Board will have a special meeting to discuss superintendent search on 1-8-15


According to the Hamburg School District web page, the Hamburg School Board will meeting this evening at 6 pm at the Hamburg Administration Building to discuss personnel matters related to the Superintendent Search.  It was announced earlier today that Mr. Jon MacSwan reneged on an agreement to come to Hamburg.  Mr. MacSwan is said to have decided to stay in Cleveland-Hill School District. 

Mr. MacSwan's decision to blow off Hamburg comes just days after the local media agencies announced his selection.  MacSwan must have very good reasons for his choice not to come to Hamburg schools as his decision at the 11th hour will likely be taken in a dim view by search consultant and interim superintendent Vincent Coppola.

Yoviene shows up at the PTSA meeting and blows off that mouth of his that the next superintendent is MacSwan. Yoviene can not control his mouth...talks about teachers, Jetter and will tell anything to anyone listening. That guy has to go.

Maybe the weirdo Andrew Freedman scared off Mr. MacSwan. Didnt Andrew blow a gasket on Forcucci. I have seen that guy in action and he can get quite scary, in my opinion. I heard there are a group of parents following him around because of the way he treats others. Maybe he needs to learn manners and be socially re-programmed. Why Hamburg would ever let him be their face in front of a prospective super - God only knows.

No competent school superintendent in his right mind would voluntarily join this school district unless he's coming from a bad situation himself. It's a terrible scenario in which to recruit excellent leadership for Hamburg schools.

This is the sad result of the whole board's conduct over the past couple years. The people of Hamburg deserve so much better than what the board has given.

hahahahahahahaha....Dave Yoviene's short tenure as Hamburg Central Schools BOE President has been a complete disaster. He kicked off his Presidency by double crossing the person who put him and his "side-piece" Laura Heeter on the board. He followed up by hand picking Jetter as Superintendent, only to have Jetter get caught banging the middle school principal and then staging his own death. Yoviene also spent approximately $500,000 to remove a board member that the Hamburg community overwhelmingly chose as a board member. And now, BLOW HARD DAVE YOVIENE, has done it again.... he shot his mouth off all week that HE had found the next Hamburg superintendent in JOHN MCSWAN, only to have the deal fall through as Mcswan told Yoviene to screw off. I am quite certain I know why this happened.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED. Yoviene and co. hired Jetter for $164,000, which was wayyyy to much for him. Jetter had no experience and not a single district in wny wanted him. The supply was HIGH and the demand was LOW. Yoviene could have gotten Jetter for $140,000 very easily, because Jetter wanted to be the superintendent, but had no leverage to demand higher pay...but Yoviene set up his new BFF Jetter with a $164,000 salary and we all know how that turned out. Now, in Mcswan's case, he HAS experience and is well liked and respected in his current district, which means that McSwan CAN demand a higher salary as HE IS IN DEMAND. Dipshit Flynn and other BOE fools were quoted in the buff news as saying that McSwan's current salary and other factors would dictate what his salary would be in Hamburg. They tried to low ball McSwan and it backfired. These fools should have realized that they were receiving a highly qualified superintendent, who is in HIGH demand, and therefore must get PAID accordingly. Yoviene and Flynn are complete misfits. Yoviene is a college drop out who is living off his daddy. Flynn is a teacher hating, goofy, insecure, clown. These fools will probably next turn to Steve Achramovitch to be their next superintendent and try to pitch a "homecoming" theme.

Colleen Kaney.... She's got it. The haters scared off macswan. Kaney will do what she is told. Flynn set the whole thing up behind Vincent's back.

1:19 and 5:47, maybe Rick Jetter left behind his vampire behavior and would like to come back to drive the energy bus. I think it would be a great idea if we could forgive and forget and bring Jetter back. The staff was so happy with Father Christmas, and it looks like he was a true leader. Throw money at the crowds and feed the hungry staff to fill their needs ( it seems all their needs in some cases), and meanwhile.....

Panen et Circenses.

Mr. Yoviene and the docile sheep on the school board who follow his directions prove every single day that not having a school board at all is preferable to having this group of incompetents representing THEMSELVES instead of the voters of the community.

It's no longer a representative elected body. The board has become one of those shadowy authorities where personal politics behind closed doors drives public policy for a community left out in the cold.

The Hamburg School Board is no longer necessary. By converting it into a private political association, the board members have become merely another layer of bureaucracy that follows its own agenda and protects its own turf, unresponsive to the public and without regard to the voters. Just more lousy bureaucrats following private agendas despite all their rosy promises of respect for the residents and taxpayers of Hamburg.

So, what do you do with a situation like this if you don't want to continue on the same dismal, sadly embarrassing road that this board has put us on for the past couple years? Well, you can get a group together to demand changes you want, like that group of extreme parents did in the middle of this disaster. Look how well that worked out.

Or you can recognize that even the entire community banding together to demand that this board change would be fruitless for one sad reason: you'd still have to work with these board members, folks who have repeatedly proven that they're not up to the job. What's the point of wasting time trying to work with a board composed of leaders who can't lead and sheep who will blindly follow them off any cliff despite every warning?

You're left with two real options: vote them all off, which is a great idea, but time plays in favor of these politicians and they know that staying the course for months or years to get rid of board members at elections isn't something the public is generally good at. It's a big reason why they ignore the voters once they're elected. They feel insulated and unaccountable, and they mostly are.

The option that's left is extreme: abolish the school board and merge the Hamburg and Frontier school districts. I'm generally not a fan of consolidation, but when it's clear that we have a layer of elected officials that have become totally superfluous bureaucrats instead of elected peers responsive to the voters, there's simply no need for that elected body anymore. Sure, you'd still be left dealing with a school board, but it wouldn't be one with years of highly public embarrassments, spending incredible amounts of money on attorneys, and caught up in absolute mediocrity, personal pettiness, and terrible decision-making.

At the least, a serious petition to abolish this school board may send a message to these folks that they just won't hear any other way: we're tired of you and your politics and your petty, immature interpersonal battles. Either you change dramatically or step down from the board. If not, then the school board remains an obstacle to advancing the community's interests and we don't need it at all.

9:43 am. Yoviene is not docile- he is a wolf in sheep's wool. He is a hypocrite, and a chronic liar. He has no moral anchor, and was put on this school board to gain favor with the folks behind the scenes running the district- Chiacchia, Fisher, Osborne and the other stale old Hamburg suits. Dave wants to be in- and he is not. He is the kinda kid who would stick his tongue on a frozen street post, so the other kids will laugh. We all know how that really works out, right? Merging with Frontier doesnt get rid of these idiots, it just gives them a chance to mess with more kids eduction. These people are idiots. This community has been adverse to Stevenson, but it seems to me she has had their number all along. And with any hope she will expose the crumbs before she leaves the board. That surely is their biggest fear. Nice ideas, but screwing up the education promises of the 3800 kids in Hamburg is bad enough, why cast the net further. They all should have left after the Jetter fiasco, but they had to stick around to bury the bodies. My guess is Copolla sees right thru the idiots. I feel bad for Copolla having to deal with this mess. He deserves one of the glass apples. And why hasnt Martinez been fired yet? Seems like his covering up the Jetter crime would have made him a criminal too? Good thoughts from you.

Seems to me...there was never an agreement between Hamburg and Macswan in the first place and someone jumped the gun (or leaked it to the Buffalo News).

That may have been concern for MacSwan that there were leaks BEFORE he even accepted the job....a sign of things to come probably (that he was unaccustomed to).... who needs that grief for $9,000 more in salary...when maybe he doesn't need to deal with that headache at Cleveland Hill.

The realities of Hamburg maybe reared its ugly head.

Lots of creeps lurking around in white vans. Stamp collectors and spooks.

Thats Jackie Peffer with a shot gun? Quick Mr. Martinez call your pal Mike M at the Hamburg Police and file a report- she looks terribly dangerous and you worked with her- you know she is wobbly upstairs.

Anonymous said...

11:23 LMAO. Martinez is a f---ing nut bag. Isnt he the one who called all the board members in May and said started the egg rumor about Jetters house. Martinez is up for tenure this year. Its gonna look real strange when that comes before the board. They better cut that slob loose now. He is one messed up man. He and Jackie make a good match

Dan Chiachia is the scum of the earth. Go ahead Dan plan a hate session at a church. We are looking forward to exposing you and the dirtbag you share your name with. Most of the legal company think you are a bottom feeder. The entire legal community thinks you are a freak.

Dave Yoviene is Dan chiacchia's bitch. fact.

Miss Rudan said...

CH-

You really need to do a post about the vice president of the hamburg ptsa who owns that filthy club in blasdell on route 5. young women work in there, with very little on at all, the place has been shut down numerous times, and lost its license to sell alcohol many times. C. Whipple and her husband lost the licenses under allegations of drugs and sex. who knows, but where there is smoke there is fire. young women, booze, hardly a piece of clothing to speak of, pole dancing, and on and on. It is disgusting that any school district would permit a woman of this type in the schools and access to young girls. how many hamburg high girls are recruited to work there. really, young girls should not be encouraged to do this kind of gross work, to sell their bodies to disgusting old men with no lives. does doctor coppolla know about these clubs on route 5 or does he know the ptsa vp owns them? or her history. they had to but the liquor license in the brothers name because the whipples couldnt get one. really sick stuff. cmon PTSA moms, you want your daughter, or sons, around people like this? I just learned this last night when we were out with friends from hamburg. really sick stuff now, isnt it?

Hey dumb shit Middle School English Teacher. The October 17, 2013 Grange meeting organized by Ed Piazza, Dan Chiacchia and James Martinez, the one that Mayor Moses rented the Grange Building from Fair Grounds. You know the one dumb shit. You were there. Cant miss ya. Now dumb shit, its on video and audio recording. So, saying that someone chewed on a microphone cord to sever it so a meeting wouldnt take place is a down right lie. Now, we know that some English teachers - like Dick Jetter- live in the fantasy land of make believe stories and like to create your own fantasy - but lying about another person to lawyers and administrators is called defamation- look it up. Call a lawyer check it out yourself. Now, dumb shit, we know you like this blog because you talk about it at school all the time , your lies are going to come back and bite you in the ass- as most lies do, right? You must get your head examined quickly, you are a very sick person, showing what we can call Jetter signs? The district has let the genie out of the bottle. Did you think it was going to be one big secret. Now dumbshit, do not fear you are not alone, emails and all kinds of other goodies will be reveal shortly to expose you and your dumbshit social studies teacher for the head case you really are. Timing is everything, and lots of folks are now learning what is really going on. Spreading like a wild fire around Hamburg. Dumbshit, is that the best you got "checking on a microphone cord?" Lets see what the video says.

See Don Esmond and the Piazzas said...

I wonder where Ed Piazza was at the Board Meeting the other night. Ed, you were gonna get an award for your behavior. I bet he and his sicko wife Mrs. Beth Clayback Piaaza were home spinning lies and fostering the same in the little people. Some really sick folks here, really sick. Shoulda taken the certificate because the next piece of paper you will see with Hamburg's name on it will be a subpoena. ( call Dan and ask him what those are.)

Thank the Good Lord, and the Roman Catholic Church of Saints that tape recorders were invented..... illuminating scumbag liars. One must consider that substance abuse is involved in their kinds of conduct. You know what little fella Ed said to Don Esmond- they called me a drug user on the blog. Well stop acting like one little pip squeak. You conduct is public is peculiar to say the least. "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.", Matthew.

Mcswan is all about himself and how much money he can squeeze out of the district. He got more to stay where he was and he doesn't have to work long hours. That's the story so don't beat yourself up about who scared him away. He is a money sucker.

Rex said...

What if one of the people that "little Danny Chiacchia" doesn't like owned a strip club in Hamburg? Can you imagine that little man standing on a soap box raging about the fact that the person owned such an establishment? Hamburg is so messed up. It actually should be a national news story that the V.P. of the Parent Teacher's Association channels young girls into her Hamburg, N.Y. strip club. Does anyone else see how crazy this is?

responding to 1:36, yes, Danny is very small.

Barry Fanilow said...

12:18- small like a horse jocky. he must be super embarrassed to show his tiny self around hamburg after all those big boy promises he made to get rid of the folks who he doesnt like because they exposed the dirty little business from the bench deal. more on that no doubt. he must really be super embarrassed around the lawyers too. that petition to the commisser against sally and holly was shit, everyone knows what little guy was doing with the slop he put down on those papers. then the little feller got those community members to walk around and sign petition- real fools really. gotta wonder with a lawyer on every corner, if little guy didnt hurt his practice spewing his hatred around the town and around the media. good god, if he were my husband i wouldve tape this mouth shut. oh well, sucks to be an idiot. in my opinion, right?
