The Most Powerful Person In The District?


Haven't We Had Enough??

Julia VanOrman
During her 8+ years on the Greece School Board, this three-term board member has acquired quite a resume of "personal accomplishments." (Keyword: "personal") Among them are the items listed below, a non -exhaustive list:
  • She "led" the BOE to overturn former Supt. Steve Achramovitch's decision to fire the hockey coach who ADMITTED to drinking while on an overnight trip with the team he was supervising.
  • She "led" West Ridge School parents into an evening where they lambasted the Supt., the school board and the district for several hours after former Supt. Steve Achramovitch suggested cutting kindergarten as a budgetary constraint at the school whose enrollment had severely declined. The board rejected his idea after listening to women and children wail into the mics for nearly 4 hours. His "suggestion" was based upon orders by the BOE to come back with severe cuts!
  • She "led" the BOE to oust Supt. Achramovitch following #1 and #2 from above.
  • She illegally instructed ("led") everyone to "Get out and vote 'Yes' on a school budget. This message was broadcast on the radio, but later mysteriously vanished from the tape of the BOE meeting.
  • She "led" the local clergy into forming an illegal partnership with the district.
  • She "led" the BOE into hiring her kid Zach to work for GCSD as a cleaner.
  • She "led" DO staffers into tutoring her youngest so he could attempt to graduate.
  • She "led" Interim Supt. O'Rourke into removing the idea to eliminate the Sibling Rule from the proposed changes to the School of Choice Proposal WITH NO EXPLANATION.
  • She illegally abstained from voting on the "retirement" of accused sex offender Barry Morris without explanation. We can only wonder what her "conflict of interest" in such a case might be!
  • She illegally counseled newly sworn BOE members Cristoffel & Maloney that they "can abstain if they don't understand" early in the Reorganizational meeting of July 8th. It is likely that this improper advice from a SEASONED BOE MEMBER created the soccer coach sh*t-storm for McCabe to deal with over the last two weeks.

You forgot to add one more of Julia accomplishments, the hiring of her own personal mole, the Board Clerk. That was Julia's way to keep tabs on everything that has gone on at District Office for the past year and a half. She has done a lot of damage to this district in eight plus years, it's time for her to resign!

To 3:29PM ~~ I ran out of time writing this BLOG, so I called it "a non-exhaustive list" ... there's MUCH more. TY for pointing out A big one!

Is there a process to fore her out or do we have to wait until she decides to go? She obviously has a big ego and a very thick skin and would not leave without being forced to leave.

To 3:57PM ~~ I believe her term of office expires next June. It would be easier to make her remaining time unenjoyable and ensure that three people are run for BOE who can defeat her next May.

BLOG Administration is rejecting two comments from publication. First, she's just not good with makeup - some people aren't artistically talented which isn't their fault ... and second, it's a felony to "threaten" a public official, even though it's a bit of a stretch (quite a bit even) to call what was written an actual threat. I prefer to err on the side of caution when dealing with the emotionally unpredictable and/or imbalanced.

Why feed this woman's ego by including her photo Scats? She's unworthy. She's done absolutely nothing for our school district. People have hidden agendas and Miss Julia clearly does. What a bad example she is for her children who she is raising to having a ab sense of entitlement.

SCATS said...

To 7:54PM ~~ Let her be recognizable for all she's done.

Perhaps Babs is a bit distracted to truly understand the BOE political winds. Her father passed away recently and there is no mention of her husband in the obit...her married siblings have theirs listed. So she must have lots of personal life weight on her shoulders to bear...

Scats Trust me there is nothing you could post on this site that would have a humbling impact on that woman at this point. She is reveling in the publicity as she has achieved the pinnacle of her power and influence.
Someone close to her told me that she is fully aware of the comments on this site and while they annoy her, she will continue to thumb her nose at your site as inspite of all the negativity projected toward her, she continues to thrive and succeed in getting things done her way. She loves the exposure as for better or worse, thanks to your site and the print and T V coverage, she has managed to gain somewhat of a celebrity status in the town. She is loving it!
By the way, this incident has now appeared on Face Book and has gone viral in this area. More exposure for her in the important area of name recognition for her possible next political moves beyond the BOE.

To 7:06AM ~~ It's not my intent to try to "humble" anyone on the BOE. However, this site does provide a lot of "history" on those who try to escape their past, especially those who leave a wake of damaged people in their path.

Believe me when I say that the comments posted here are extremely mild compared to what I've read posted on the TV, radio and Section V sites! I'm a bit surprised they've allowed some of the scathing sentiments to remain.

As for Julia and her "future" ... politically or otherwise, I can't wait to watch her implode through her own words and actions. Trust me, that time is coming.

SCATS said...

BTW 7:06AM, her "fame" makes this site more successful than EVER before! The numbers here are outpacing Auggie's worst days.

TY JULIA!!! Be proud!!! lmao :)

Good job Julia! You're a clown and now you are modeling that for the kids to see. Most importantly your own! You have shown people how to manipulate the system and look what your son did in Jamaica! Maybe coach Huber knew of your son's antics all along and did what the school and athletic code of conduct state you should do!!! Not play students when they break code and aren't role models of the school!! Coach Huber should teach some of the other coaches AND that AD over at Athena how to follow suit and not cover up the breaches going on. The Super is not innocent either as she was made aware of antics over there on certain teams by GCSD staff. It wasn't the BOY''S team.

To 9:27AM ~~ OMG, I forgot about the aftermath of Jamaica! TY for the reminder!!
