Hamburg School Boars VIOLATE OPEN MEETING LAWS, AGAIN.

New York State  PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 7,  'OPEN MEETINGS LAW', requires that public bodies in NYS comply with the following terms of convening an executive session.   Historically, the Hamburg Central School District Boars of Education have demonstrated little, if any, concern for the law.  And, in many instances, have thumbed their collective noses at NYS  and US laws.  In 2011, the School Board was taken to court for violating Open Meeting Laws,  and the Petitioner in the matter was successful in demonstrating to the Court that the Boars violated Open Meetings Laws.  And,  here they go again.   Is President Thomas Flynn the Turd as dim as he appears?  

The enumerated purposes for convening a secret session, where the Hamburg boars engage in scheming, name-calling and conspiring to break the laws are as follows: *

§105. Conduct of executive sessions.
1. Upon a majority vote of its total membership, taken in an open meeting pursuant to a motion identifying the general area or areas of the subject or subjects to be considered, a public body may conduct an executive session for the below enumerated purposes only, provided, however, that no action by formal vote shall be taken to appropriate public moneys:
a. matters which will imperil the public safety if disclosed;
b. any matter which may disclose the identity of a law enforcement agent or informer;
c. information relating to current or future investigation or prosecution of a criminal offense which would imperil effective law enforcement if disclosed;
d. discussions regarding proposed, pending or current litigation;
e. collective negotiations pursuant to article fourteen of the civil service law;
f. the medical, financial, credit or employment history of a particular person or corporation, or matters leading to the appointment, employment, promotion, demotion, discipline, suspension, dismissal or removal of a particular person or corporation;
g. the preparation, grading or administration of examinations; and
h. the proposed acquisition, sale or lease of real property or the proposed acquisition of securities, or sale or exchange of securities held by such public body, but only when publicity would substantially affect the value thereof.
2. Attendance at an executive session shall be permitted to any member of the public body and any other persons authorized by the public body.

Please note the following portion of the published agenda in red.   Where is Mr. Daniel Chiacchia- self-proclaimed advocate of all that is right and just in Hamburg- according to his document creation schemes ?  Where is the Freedom of Information Maven, and Strip Club Madam Christina Whipper- Shnapper?     Surely the community must be outraged by the run away Boars?

 *  Thomas Flynn the Turd is widely known as violating the law by blatantly ignoring labor, human rights and education law.  But, the Turd, and the classless members of the Hamburg Boars take little concern about the law, because they can send the taxpayer dollars off to the billable hours scavenger Andew Freedman of Hodgson Russ and hide behind his trousers.   Sadly, the Boars haven't recognized that Mr. Freedman has not, as demonstrated in the Buffalo Evening News, provided sound legal advice.   
C'mon Fellas- Man- Up and follow the Laws.

Yeah- Freedman was my Ed Law teacher- learned NOTHING from that dude. He boasted about the all money he makes from the crazy Hamburg Board of Ed. I was not impressed at all with him, he made a fool of himself during every class, and everyone was talking that he lost his stupid argument with the NYS Com. of Ed. against a teacher. And that guy teachers future administrators? No wonder all the districts, or most of them still, are run by dumb white males who couldn't cut it as teachers- some as stupid as getting less than 2.0 GPA in Special Ed classes. I mean really- what fools!!!?!?! Jack

Concerned Hamburg- Why are you writing about Fisher Bus getting another extension on their contract, when NO BID has been sent out by the school district. This is a volation of the law. Hamburg has been financing the Fisher Bus people for over 50 Years and there have been NO COMPETITIVE BIDS FOR OTHER BUS COMPANIES. Why are we sick and tired of this, and in addition they pay for the fuel of the buses. NO OVER SIGHT. AND THE BOE IS BOBBLING UP AND DOWN. Keith Fisher was on the Foundation for years having parties at his house in Ellicotville that the Hamburg taxpayers have purchased with 60 years of NO contracts. Really. Wonder why the Hamburg boys who get their palms greased with school tax dollars were terrified of the "rough" board members???? Well go figure- they are the only ones to ask questions. And that Foundation is a fraud. Why did they change their names so quick and erase Donald Ogilvies involvement. Cmon Concerned, I think you are slacking. Thanks........ please look into you mailbox.

I love the people who post here and don't have a clue. If you did any research or knew what you were talking about you wouldn't make statements just to hear yourself talk. True, that Don Ogilvie was an interim Executive Director and after a few months decided to step down. Why did the Foundation change their name? Well, the Hamburg School Foundation and the Hamburg Alumni group decided that it would be best for the town and district to have one organization. So the two combined and the resulting name was the Hamburg Alumni Foundation as a result. Now you can say that the Foundation is a fraud. However, if it wasn't for the Foundation/Alumni group you wouldn't have a new football field, a new sign at the high school, over $250,000 in grants to teachers, a wall of fame event, a reunion weekend and numerous scholarships to students. So if you're a Hamburg grad please let the Foundation know and they will be happy to consider a position for you on the board when the next vacancy opens up so you can share your wealth of knowledge.

1:10 Hamburg can't get competitive bids for bussing because they literally have built the schedule for each building's school day around Fisher's availability for pick up/ drop off. Hamburg might as well purchase Fisher bus, it would save us money in the long run and would give us more flexibility in scheduling

Why would you buy Fisher Bus. Fisher is raking it in, buying Porshes and houses in the pompous Holimont. He would invite the foundation down there and even superintendents of Hamburg Schools. Did ya ever try to rent a school bus from them for a private function- so MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE than Carrier or First Student. So, then it even crazier- the district pays for the gas in ADDITION TO THE Millions in a contract. I say blow them into the NYS DEPT of Transportation and the Attorney General for not having bids in DECADES. Ya want to know why certain people in Hamburg don't want anyone digging into things? Well here ya go. The guy they have in there now is about as stupid as they come- 1. for taking the job, and 2. for having NO ethics NO morals and No backbone. See what kind of side of the hand goes on. Osborn and his envelops. Heck, that guy should be in prison ask a few of his secretaries. AND then after he grows rich on the taxpayers has he gall to be on the school board- KEEP THE SECRETS HIDDEN. So, look, if you see someone on the Hamburg School Board- go easy on them- they are stupid fools who don't know shit and have NO MORALS. So, Why doesn't a school board member ask about bidding the bus contract. Oh I know, they will be branded by the Hamburg Bullies- Dan Chiacchia and his thugs- as crazy. Wonder when Dan and his dirty tactics are gonna go public- looks like things are shaking up. Time will tell. Thieves the whole lot of them. Too bad, the kids could have some nice programs.
