Here's the problem. Vince is the only real SUCCESSFUL business person on the board. Type A Lady is a failed wedding planner unable to execute beyond the breath in her lungs. Woodlawn's Special Ed needs guidance and support to buy pins to blow up volley balls. These are joined by a well intended ''community organizer'' and, a sometime account clerk.
None of them were quick, savvy, or, gutsy enough to respond to pretty damning put downs by their chairperson. If I thought they had the collective synapses, I'd accuse them of colluding to oust her.

Elfuns and their mistresses, the Junior League, have always tried for elitism status. At least the Elfuns have made real concrete contributions to our community. The Elfuns who shed their ''short man'' middle manager inferiority complexes and let their expertise shine on us have enriched us immensely. Whereas, all the Junior League gave us is housing stock overloaded with colonial style homes and very small kitchens.

A big criteria is always your value to, and impact on an entity's bottom line. The more ''institutional'' memory one posesses, the more value you have.

HERE'S SOME GAMES; REAL TAG, REAL BASEBALL AND GOD FORBID, REAL HONEST EYE CONTACT. WHEN THE POWER GOES OFF, AND BATTERIES LOSE THEIR CHARGE FOLKS MUST PROTECT THEMSELVES BY KNOWING HOW TO ASCEND BASEMENT STEPS, TO ACTUALLY GO OUTSIDE AND NEGOTIATE A REMEDY.
I FEEL TERRIBLY FOR THE PAIN MANY ENDURE. HOWEVER IF YOUR THUMBS ARE YOUR MOST DEVELOPED BODY PARTS, YOU WILL NEVER RISE ABOVE IT. FIND THE STRENGTH TO SHED YOUR ROBES, BATHE, AND GIVE REALITY A CHANCE. IT MOSTLY SUCKS, BUT IT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU.....REALLY.

Why is the council listening to a FAILED EVENTS PLANNER for fiduciary projections, only to have her kick the can of responsibility to the State Legislature. Just another waste of air, time, and type.
When can we tax payers expect a ''report out'' on TYPE A LADY'S Graffiti eradication program?

WHAT CROCKS. Special Ed is repurposing pre-existing programs driven by funding he's had no input to or control over. In his county job the most he could have had control over was affixing signatures to R.F.P.s and revolving entitlements. WHERE IS THE POT OF FUNDING NAYLOR SAID SPECIAL ED HAD ACCESS TO.
The Carptebagger is spouting QUIXOTIC aphorisms about issues Council members have no control over. If he threw in ideas about the GOLD STANDARD he could get funds from Rand Paul.
We are so short changed, which, by the way, is the polite way to say what i really mean.

Career and technical education actually dates back to 1947 when Schenectady City Schools offered air plane engine maintenance and repair courses at Pleasant Valley.
That said; this melding of options goes much further towards globalizing kids options than Gates and Buffets social engineering. Districts need to work to avoid ''shoe-horning'' kids into cheap curriculum packages based on 10-15 year old data and techniques.

SPECIAL ED KO'd BY HIS LAZINESS. Special Ed continues wasting time, air, and print space by not performing basic research on a topic. His homespun quick fix everyman utterances are an affront to taxpayers. He is just embarrassing.
BTW Where is the windfall funding Naylor said Special Ed was bringing with him. Now is a good time for it to materialize.
If Special Ed can demonstrate his ability to mop floors and follow a fixed route in a timely manner, the Dems should reward his loyalty by hiring him as the Pound's DOG WALKER
DO NOT ELECT THIS MAN

It is always interesting to observe the ''FOIL EFFECT'' at work. Mayors propose. Councils posture and obfuscate. Each vent over matters of which 60-70 per cent are beyond their control. THUS, each reinforces the illusion of governance.
