Does the new Presidunce Need a hairdresser, wear too much makeup and crappy earrings? Is Botox failing her as I type?

Hey, it works for Vladimir Putin.
Maybe we need to start arguing for term limits to get fresh ideas into the "system"

The minutes of the board meetings are a joke. In my opinion they are anything but. They contain simply an out line of the proceedings
The last time we had real minutes of the meetings was when the last board clerk kept them before she retired.They were a factual account of of what was said by which board member on agenda items not just how they voted and what the vote count was for or against. This present clerk has successfully conned the board into believing these are the minutes. Of course the argument could be made that all meetings. Are taped therefore a complete transcript of proceedings are documented and in her possession. That does not make them readily available to the public and as such tapes can and have been in the past Convieniantly EDITED when deemed necessary .

To 10:24AM ~~ The minutes are now a COMPLETE JOKE! Even with the videotape, you can't always know who spoke to the BOE during Resident's Forum, etc. ALL of those names, addresses & concerns used to be in BOE minutes, as did the names, dates & other info related to the filing of Notices of Claim against the district. These are just a couple of areas where the minutes have been cleansed into uselessness.

This is Julia's third time as board president. Most organization due have term limits or rotational system. This is agood practice as its never good for one person to hold that position for more than one year especially in this district.
In Julias first term it was obvious that she had an intense dislike for ACHROMOVITCH , who by the way she voted for as Superintendant ,however not the case with our present Superintendant with whom she has obviously formed a very positive bond. This works well for DW as she now has gained her allegence and control over a weak board thru her relationship with board leadership. This is why my argument for a one year term is necessary so that that personal relationship ends the need to be held accountable as the boards only employee by control of its leadership does not happen.
As I look down the road and the present board makeup adding in the fact that Julia will be on the board for another three years, it is highly likely, given her love of the spot light, unless she decides else wise she could be in that position another three years.Given that DW just got an extension this is good news for her and not so good news for the district.

I agree 1:33. Not good when there is no accountability.

For those of us who didn't tune in, might you share these answers rather than posting passive aggressive questions?

Why didn't she give Ferington the president slot and she take his VP spot? I think he would do a good job and would not Grand Stand at meetings like she does. One major difference between the two is Ferington does not feed off public attention as does Julia with her long winded comments
As president she is supposed to preside over the meetings and not try to be the meeting herself. Board policy dictates the duties of president concerning the conduct of meetings.
Maybe she should read it and conduct herself within those parameters .

To 2:58PM ~~ I "might" ... if I've posted any that were "passive-aggressive." Let's see, just one qualifies ;)

Answer: Julia.

To 4:30PM ~~ The District's Dysfunction continues! Julia seems to be a HUGE control freak. The District Clerk is supposed to run the reorganizational meeting. Julia kept butting in, attempting to "help" (another word would be "rescue") her from her own incompetance. I'm not the only person who noticed this behavior.

IMHO, Julia needs to spend more time focusing on her two boys, and less time trying to steer the future of GCSD. How many more embarrassing Tweets, Facebook posts etc. will it take before she stops sacrificing her home & family life for the novelty of attending a slew of BOE meetings, "better boardsmanship classes" and being the BOE Prez and socialite wannabe?

Say all you want about Julia's domination of the audible segment of board meetings, but the fact is without her sometimes long winded comments, watching a board meeting these days would be like watching a silent movie.

Check out hamburg ethics blog. Achramo itch is suing a BOE member, a teacher and a citizen because he thinks they taped his illegal executives sessions in which he lied about them. Achramo then conned former board members to get on his bandwagon. He is suing for punitive damages. Thanks for sending us this clown.

SCATS said...

To 7:22PM ~~ They gagged themselves months ago, at least in part to prevent embarrassing quotes from appearing on SCATS, just ask Mz. O'Toole.

Now they emulate the closed, clubby & corrupted Greece Town Board ... no discussion, all vote in favor of everything ... wham, bam, thank you ma'am, meeting adjourned ;)

SCATS said...

To Hamburg Kitchen Lady ~~ ANY TIME :)

Could you make use of a bus monitor, by chance? lol

I seriously doubt that their silence has anything to do with it being posted on this site. It has more to do with the fact that the majority of them haven't a clue as to what is going on and what in hell they are voting.onI think some of them think that to ask a question on an agenda item is an act of disloyalty to the Superintendant and Julia In the case of O'Toole it is strictly a case of her relationship with Julia. That big guy may know how to organize a parade once a year but as a board member he just takes up a lot of room and nothing else.Now that Boily is gone, he is totally lost.

To 10:13AM ~~ I've watched people's behaviors change over the last 6.5 years. There IS an impact related to this BLOG. I've seen it many, many times. It's resulted in numerous changes by people in the media, DO, the BOE etc. Some have complained directly, just before losing their voice ;) I suspect that your point is also true at times, too. In addition, they don't want to look uninformed by raising questions when they are feeling in the dark. Taken together, it's a sad situation all around.

Here's a question, Does Babs work from home? She seems to be have vanished. I figured she would be out and about with all the moves going on. Or are they all at some high priced retreat again learning how to stop Bullying?

SCATS said...

To 2:59PM ~~ Julia said they were all going on a retreat together soon. Otherwise, you might want to check out the Distillery.

If you want to know all the tricks of the trade that your Babs has up her sleeve then just ask a Lyndonville Employee. She thinks that just because she got away with all the bribes, gifts and partying with an inner circle in Lyndonville that she can get away with it Greece to. She had the BOE Prez in her pocket there to and the funny thing is that she is so good at it he still doesn't know............lololol
Watch out she talks a good talk and does the favor so you will be in debt to her. She stacks up the lawyer bill and only care about the next party and how she can make it sound like a retreat, people talk and reveal a lot when drinking that's what she is looking for ... information. Have the BOE have there meetings and retreats right at the school, this way there are no distractions and save some tax dollars. What your facility is not good enough??

So the district is so broke that they have to lay people of, close schools, and cut classes for the students. BUT, they can go on a pricey retreat. Sounds like we have a female version of Steve Walts on our hands.
