4 Statues & 1 Ugly Mug = DYSFUNCTION

  
Watch Auberger Flip The Bird Towards
Moscato @9:58 On The Video!
   
Listen carefully at the end where Supervisor Auberger tells the clerk to make sure the minutes reflect the political affiliations of those who addressed the Town Board at this past Tuesday night's meeting. Is this some new kind of democracy where the issues don't matter unless you represent the controlling party?

Wow, they really think that this is a Town Board Meeting! Are the Councilmen deaf and dumb? Doesn't look like they will be sitting in those seats much longer, hopefully someone who can hear and speak will replace them.

I read another Thread earlier after this meeting and thought some of the comments about our Town Council and Supervisor were described as being rude and non-carrying; Well I thought it was only their opinion but after seeing this clip, I don't see it that way anymore. Video doesn't lie, so when are these demi-gods up for re-election, hopefully soon.

By the way, I am a Republican if Mr. Auberger is keeping a toll.

Wow, Garretson looks like a real goofball up there. So these board members are the ones that hired Merritt Rahn 30 years ago? I'm kinda doubting that. If my memory serves me, there was a t least one democrat on the board that hired Rahn. Dave's new to Greece, hasn't lived here very long. I guess someone needs to help him learn the facts.

Who was the last guy up? He was a little out of control. I was wondering, did he get arrested?

So this is how the Town Meetings are? No one speaks unless Auberger request that they do?

Glad I never attend them. Seems like we need to get some new people in those seats. Was all of those people who spoke up against them Democrats?

Well I am a Democrat and a little worried about saying anything here. Worried that I will be singled out by Auberger.

Why do they have to say their name and where they live? So Augie can look them up and go out of his way to torment them in the future.

This reminds me of the McCarthy era where people were labeled. Except he is labeling people as being members of a party that is one of the 2 most powerful parties and is legal in the United states.
Those speakers were right to call out the present reps on the town board. The council reps lack personality and conviction. Obviously they do not support the supervisor since they say nothing. He should notice that.

Believe it or not, all 5 Board Members are Republicans. I am not sure if that is something that happens often in other Towns but I think there should be more diversity on the Board so things like what happen at this meeting doesn't take place again.

I am a Republican and pretty damn worried right now. Is this what our party has come too? I am shocked with how our Town Council did or said nothing, nothing at all.

SCATS said...

To 9:54PM ~~ The goofball is you! Rahn wasn't hired by Greece 30 years ago.

Did Mr Speranza interview the neighbors of Mr Aubergers residence at XXX Darrington Dr? They definately would have seen how many afternoons Mr Auberger had liasons on taxpayer time. I have it on good authority that John Auberger left town hall quite often at 2-3 in the afternoon for a "nap" This is the same time Mrs Neusatz left work at the cleaners.
Did Mr Speranza investigate how many phone calls and how many minutes Mr Auberger spent onhis cell phone 723-xxxx? This phone is payed for by our tax dollars.
I have it on good authority That Mr Speranza left for a 2-week Florida vacation after town board hired him. That would give him only 2 weeks to make his report...or maybe he typed up when he was relaxing at the beach.

Did Mr Speranza interview Mr Aubergers neighbors at XXX Darrington Dr? This would help determine how much time Mr Auberger spent at home conducting his afternoon liasons. I have it on good authority that Mr Aoberger left town hall quite regularly at 2-3 in the afternoon for a "nap" Mrs Neusatz left work at the cleaners at 2-3 in the afternoon.
Did Mr Speranza look at Mr Aubergers 721-xxxx cell phone records. This would determine how many minutes he spent talking with Mrs Neusatz on taxpayers time and money as this phone is paid for by taxpayers.
I have it on good authority that Mr Speranza left for a two week Florida vacation after being hired by town board. This would leave only 2 weeks for this investigation...or maybe he typed it as he was relaxing at the beach.

Oh just get past it. Our Super was providing a constituent a service. Greece government is real big on service. It's part of the job, and John does it well.

Now who remembers the crap video released from TJ Hooligans at the time of the beatdown when SuperBaxter asked for the public's help?

Did you see the video on TV 8 tonight? Full and very good face shots of the criminal. Oddly they did a good job identifying his race which SuperBaxter never put out.

WHY did SuperBaxter withhold information from the public when he was aware there was a dangerous criminal wandering the streets loose?

What attorney will be hired to do an investigation? How much will that cost?

Garretson should check his facts with more research. Boily hired Chuck Schwab (former assessor) and Merritt Rahn. They went to prison under Auberger's reign, but Boily hired them.

SCATS said...

To 8:23AM ~~ you are correct that Boily hired Rahn. I'm not sure who hired Schwab. Anyway you look at it, Auberger kept them both LONG PAST TIME TO CUT BAIT. Both had problems that failed to get their bossman's (Auberger's) attention. Maybe we need Donald Trump ... "You're fired!!"

Anonymous said...

I'm glad the party was identified. It is just a fact. Calm down.

RE: 8:23

You are 100% correct: Auberger commented before that he inherited Merritt Rahn but he could have easily terminated him many times over, including over a decade ago over the missing/stolen gun.
Instead, Auberger told him that he needed to be more careful with his gun, (verbaly over the phone, not even in writing).

Put B Urmacher in charge of GPD...at least he is honest, and has always been the lighthouse of the Greece Police Department

Who cares who hired who? It is a little late for the blame game, our town keeps voting these people in that make bad decisions and they will do it again with Helfer. It is clear no one is going to come out against them, the democrats to sit back and not have a game plan is beyond comprehension. By the way I am a town republican as well and it comes down to giving the town a fresh start, looks like I will move instead of holding out any hope.

SCATS said...

To 9:27AM ~~ Wrong. First of all, Garretson already identified that he was from the Democratic Committee. Second, how does Auberger know any of their individual affiliations? Does he look everyone up? Why didn't he name Moscato who ran on the Dem. ticket in 2009? Third, why should party affiliation be of concern to Auberger or the town board? Fourth, what about paying attention to the issues raised? Are they non-issues only if you are a Democrat? Fifth, show me any other town or govt body around here where business is transacted in this way. You can't!

SCATS said...

To 11:08AM ~~ Oh puh-leeze! I'll grant you that compared to his cronies inside GPD Uhrmacher is likely the better man, but HE REMAINED SILENT THROUGHOUT JOSEPH'S & PIGNATO'S DAYS OF DISGRACING GPD! In my book, that makes him part of the problem.

To 12:28PM ~~ Between the folks who are fed up with Auberger's antics and those who have had their fill of the school district's disregard for the community, traffic will be backed up on 390 South & 104 East & West as people migrate towards the light. Better get a fill-up on somr $4/gal gas before you get in line. You're going to need it.

I think the Greece democrats need a new leader. Garretson's terrible. He doesn't even know the history in town and says all kinds of wrong stuff. What looked to be fake anger was pretty silly looking too. I heard Phil Fedele used to be leader. Did they chase him out? What about Fred Amato? What did they do with those people? At least they have some political acumen and know what they're doing. Garretson's weak and his wife's not very impressive as a political pit bull either.

Their cast of characters they bring to these meetings to beat up on the Repubs is very weak too. Who's that Charlie guy? Someone told me he was a government employee. Can't we get any non-government or political people! These Greece Dems are more of the same.

Greece Dems need new leadership if anything is gonna happen!!!

Well between the smug faces on all the board members and Augie flipping people off, makes me want to come to one of our Town Board Meetings!

SCATS said...

To 3PM ~~ SCATS might host a "Push-up your glasses" night at a Town Board meeting. Would you join us then? ;) lol

Anonymous said...

To much time is wasted talking about what has been done to us by the town hall, we live in the most corrupt town in America. What do we do to move forward? No one seams to have a plan of any kind to get a new town board in, if we can not do that it will be business as usual. The democrats need to identify real candidates that runnable and have a chance at winning. You need some folks that are respected and have some name recognition in our town, then you need Moreli to step up this time and commit some resources to them. Moreli also needs to assist in getting endorsements form the independent and green party for them, AND MAYBE WE STAND A CHANCE AT GETTING RID OF THESE PEOPLE.

SCATS said...

To 8:31PM ~~ There is another way of handling it. Try getting the FBI & Atty General in here to investigate the corruption. You'll see rats scattering so fast they'll look like flies ;)

For what must be the 27th time, the Assessor once appointed by the Town Board is pretty damn close to autonomous under NY State Law. The Supervisor and Town Board hold NO POWER over the assessor, and can be in trouble real quick for merely attempting to influence him.

I happened to be driving into the Town Hall complex as Mr Garretson was walking back to his vehicle, and judging by only the grin on his face he must have been well satisfied with his performance that night.

Anonymous said...

My God! Do the Republicans every listen and see what is going on in Greece. They should be the first to call for an investigation on their own here. If they want to save any type of face, they need to step up to the plate and put a stop to all of this.

SCATS said...

To 9:56PM ~~As we learned, the assessor is not immune to the laws. Schwab illegally advertised his personal business on his Town business card. No problem there? What about the fact that the Supervisor's budget was based on erroneous assessments via the Kodak mess? Still no problem? I know, it's Greece. NOTHING TO SEE HERE ... keep moving ...

I don’t think anyone is listening it is a free for all!! I think it is sad that we get more people at a school board meeting over the marching band then we can get at our town board meeting. That shows where our priorities are when it comes to how our community looks at issues.

SCATS said...

To 3:34PM ~~ It isn't "free" ... it's costing all of us a bundle in taxes, lawsuits, lost business and homeowners who choose to go where the grass really is greener.

3:34 pm:

Kind of funny if you follow the various topics in this blog, the comments and amount of comments and any of the voting topics.

It is clear that any topic about Auberger or our Town Meetings get more comments and more people wanting to vote on this blog vs. anything dealing with all other topics, (including the School Board).

You never know it if you go to the Town Board Meetings though. Maybe people have gone one time or another and seen similar antics for themselves and stopped going. Then it goes on word of mouth for others who will never go. Not sure why more people would show and give their opinions on a blog vs. going to the Board Meetings and doing it there.

On the other hand, most of the meetings for the Town Board and School Board are scheduled on the same date and really close to the same time of each other making people choose between them. Anyone who has kids in Schools will obviously go to the School Board Meetings then.

SCATS said...

To 8:15PM ~~ I'm not sure I agree with your observations related to the stats on this BLOG. There are certain topics that get BIG responses - typically they are on school choice, teacher contracts/pay/negotiations and related topics, budget cuts and any scandal. I admit that the recent info on Aubirder's affair got much more attention than most town topics in the past. Regular school board meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month (usually) and Town Board meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month (usually). This month was an exceprtion to that rule.

I think people refuse to waste their time going to the meetings of either body because it's like banging your head against a brick wall -- it feels so good when you stop! There is NO RESPONSE from any of our elected officials, ever.

So the marching band is more important then the corruption in our town government? Well the Titanic had a band so I guess we should also. It looks like you are wasting your time all they way around, go play bingo you might make out better.
