I Know What You Did Last Winter

In honor of the Matawan Regional Teacher’s Association latest negotiation tactic, a blunder so incredibly stupid that one wonders if the union leadership should be placed on suicide watch, I’d like to dedicate the Bedroom Intruder newscast and its accompanying music video to our dear Rodeo Clowns.

As part of negotiations, the union and school board had agreed to a media blackout – neither side would make any public statements regarding negotiations – so long as neither side declared an impasse. That is why I refrained from attacking the union leadership on this blog.

Recently, the school board changed its entire negotiating team (yes, there’s a story there but I’ll save it for later in case Fearless Marty chooses to run again) and hired a new negotiating attorney. At this point, the only items successfully negotiated were the rules of negotiation and some meeting dates. Not a single contractual item was ever discussed.

So, what happened at the very first negotiations meeting with the new team and the new attorney, before anything is even negotiated? The MRTA declared an impasse.

That means the media blackout no longer exists and school board members are free to discuss negotiations or the lack thereof.

For example, the school board is free to discuss the sweetheart deal it offered the teachers union last January to save the custodial positions, an offer made before the board realized how desperate the district’s financial situation would become. Or, better yet, the ridiculous counter-offer demonstrating the union leadership cared more about themselves than their members. (And the counter-offer was made in writing should the rank and file care to see it.)

Or we could discuss the custodial negotiation session in April when the union leadership had the outsource bids in their hands. They knew the district would save over a million dollars a year from outsourcing even though the school board was only requesting half of that in concessions to save the custodial positions. Regardless, the union offer (also in writing), fell so far short that the school board voted unanimously to outsource rather than waste more time in bad-faith negotiations.

Or maybe we could discuss some of the ludicrous labor grievances that were also part of the negotiations?

Or how about the union offering the district virtually nothing to save three long-time union members from losing their lifetime health benefits.

I’m tempted to post everything online but these are the types of shots that can only be fired once, so I’m going to let this play out a bit more. Let’s see if the union attempts to intimidate board members’ children, picket at their homes, or try to frighten the community again.

I’m also tempted to see what the union membership will do. Scores of jobs are potentially at stake next year. Bus drivers, secretaries, teachers aides, child study teams, and guidance counselors can all be outsourced. Without increased funding from the state (unlikely at best), there will need to be more cuts through either outsourcing or reductions in force to cover increases in salary, healthcare, and pensions.

As for the teachers union leadership, I leave you with this quote from the Bedroom Intruder Song – “You don’t have to come and confess. We’re looking for you. We gonna find you. We gonna find you.”

BARZA IS GRASPING FOR AIR said...

MR. WARREN THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE.

I APPLAUD YOUR CHOICE OF WORDS AND YOU CAN BET EVERY JANITOR THAT WAS LET GO WILL HEAR OF THESE SELL OUT UNION LEADERS WHO ARE LITTLE MORE THAN SELFISH SCUM HANDCRAFTED BY THAT WITCH LOOKING WOMAN BARBARA KASHASIAN. I WOULD ALSO THINK THAT EACH AND EVERY TEACHER, SECRETARY AND MOST EVERY OTHER SCHOOL EMPLOYEE TO SEE WHAT YOUR NEGOTIATORS REALLY DO VERSUS WHAT THEY TELL THE MEMBERSHIP. LIARS THEY ARE.

I COMMEND THE FACT THA NO MATTER HOW OUTLANDISH THE SUBJECT YOU ALWAYS AND I REPEAT IT FOR THE IDIOTS WHO LIE AGAINST YOU THAT YOU ALWAYS GAVE THE PROOF.

BARZA IS GRASPING FOR AIR LATELY AND WITH THE ETHICALLY CHALLENGED ZAVORSKAS ONLY HAVING TO PUSH TO HEAD UP SOME BULLSHIT LITTLE GROUP INSIDE THE SCHOOL PARENT OR ACTIVITY THAT REALLY HAS PARENTS FAR LESS THAN INTERESTED DUE TO HER DEMANDS AND DICTATORIAL STYLE IS REALL SAD TO WATCH. SHE HAS NEVER LEARNED TO JUST LET GO. THE BARZA TIME IS PLAYED OUT AND THE FAT LADY HAS SUNG.

GOOD RIDDANCE BARZA

YOU ARE NOT MISSED FOR ONE MINUTE

mr. sarcastic said...

Yeah, I'm sure the janitors can't wait to come out and support Joey Warren, especially after all he's done for them.

Aberdeener said...

Well, I can think of four (yes, four) who would support me if they knew the full story.

Jimmy C. said...

I have to agree that Joey did provide a great deal of proof on much that he has shown here. That is of course counter to those who criticized him and his subjects, topics and examples anonymously. These anonymous posters almost always offered zero facts, proofs or real numbers to counter or correct that which Joey shared with us.

The ignorance of Marty Ruprecht and his lame attempt at embarrassing Joey for his time on the school board was similarly ignorant and all too telling of Marty Ruprecht's real motivations. He is certainly under direct control from Zavorskas and Barbato who have yet to realize that their time in the spotlight has come and gone. Thank GOD for us taxpayers who are left to pay for their ineptness.

Marty it's time to just shut up and slink away.

Do the right thing for once.

Anonymous said...

So let me get this straight. You think that 2 former board members still want to control what goes on in the district. Two individuals who are not part of the process nor will ever be again. Why, how, what, when and where. Oh yeah, thats right, they want to control all that power the BOE has - and not get paid for it. Grow up, BARZA is gone and the conspiracy theorists need something else to latch on to. I know, how about a life.

Don't be surprised. I'll be posting some interesting tidbits next week.

Anonymous said...

Joey, make sure you don't tread lightly with this and call it whistle blowing if you want, I'm sure both the Aberdeen and Matawan taxpayers funding these jobbers want to know the truth and what goes on behind closed doors. If it takes letting out only a little at a time than so be it, it only makes it harder for them to do damage control. I was never your fan on a lot of matters but never a hater as you always do back up what you say with proof. We are all bled dry between the schools and the municipalities not to mention the state. Why are individuals not being formally investigated? As inept the governing bodies are there should be no reason why certian individuals can't be taken down. People like Kauff and alike should be put in the town square and pelted with produce and flogged before being sent to the big house for the real punishment from their cell mate.

Anon 8:06 a.m.:
Cathy; so nice to see you crawl out of your rock to "defend" BARZA. Why would the notion of "two individuals" running everything and trying to regain their former "glory" be so outlandish? Didn't the two of you brow beat Demerest into slinking back? She probably had to "prove" how sorry she was for siding with the sane board members against you and twinkle toes Barbato. Look how well you have put the squeeze on Marty's non-exsistant balls since she has been back on? But, you had to keep him controlled after "what a disappointment" he turned out to be....well, kudos, judging from recent events, you have him firmly in your grasp again. BRAVO. Conspiracy theory? No,you are all just pathetically predictable. I would bet my whole paycheck that those familiar red/white,hyphenated name signs start popping up in March..yes, I can't wait to hear the familiar Dr. Suess qoutes and the barely audible, shackey voice talk about how messed up the district is and how we all "need" you(yeah,right!) to come back and save the children, restore the "glory days" and "educate" the public about how the board works...Oh! I just threw up in my mouth a little at the very thought of it! Things are starting to ACTUALLY be good for my kids since you and your twisted sideshow friends were run out on a rail, so DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS!! Just sell silly bands at the Hobby Shop and leave the clean up to the (if there are any) brave new citizens who aren't under BARZA's slimey thumb.

P.S. give me a break with "volunteers who don't get paid for all their hard work" - You and yours made out very nicely during your years of "service", why else would you all keep running? ..unless you really are just as warped as the rumors say, which is it? I am betting it's both!

Hey stupid, 8:06 isn't Cathy. By the way, what did you mean about her making out nicely during her years of "service" or are just like the rest. All talk-no proof.

Oh, I beg to differ.. or perhaps a BARZA offspring, perhaps?

In any event, proof should be VERY easy to supply, stay tuned... ;)

I recommend a break from the resentments here. Geeze! You hate this one, but he hates that one, she hates somebody no longer on the scene...And everybody is salivating for the sure to come glory day of comeuppance. "Wink. Wink. Nudge Nudge...Wait for it...meanwhile laugh at various obligatory prison sex references!"

Sustained bile is not healthy. I decided to stop visiting the site but here I am, back again, like a crack addict! I know its bad for me but... For a change of pace, tell us how you like your new home? Do you think you will involve yourself in the civic affairs of that community too? I can't imagine you will be able to avoid noticing the injustices there as well.

Aberdeener said...

Anon,

Thanks for asking. Wife and kids are happy. I miss Aberdeen.

No plans for politics. I've got some personal projects I've been postponing, which will take priority.

Not done with the blog, yet, but don't know how long it will continue. It's a shame there's no one out there to take it over.

Anonymous said...

How did BARZA profit from their time on the board?
Well, maybe with a little arm twisting of connected players to get their kids college scholarships, accepted into speciality high schools, bullying teachers about their kids grades? How much do you think all that is worth?

Using their positions for their own benefit, no that didn't happen, did it?

Anonymous said...

Please, you're all delusional. Offer solid proof - I'm sure Joey will come up with something, he's very good at making things look the way they are not. In the meantime it's obvious that due to the lenth of Cindy B's rant there is something more going on in her head. Maybe something more personal? I think she's another big mouth with an axe to grind. A truly ignorant moron who believes everything she reads on this blog. Please show us where all these things took place i.e. scholarships, arm twisting, teacher bullying. And not one teacher said anything, right? Take a hike and get a life.

Anonymous said...

Gee, seems like the poster above this seems a bit agitated. I wonder who that could be.? hmmmm...

And I do remember teachers speaking up about being bullied to make sure BARZA board members kids "got" the grade they needed. And yes, they did it anonymously on this blog, BARZA still had control of the BOE and these teachers jobs.

Isn't it funny that those who always try to defame this blog, are always on it first thing in the morning?

Bull. Names, dates and places, please. Put up or shut up. BTW, not agitated, would just like something beyond a reasonable doubt. If you can't then your statement is invalid. However, if you do come up with something tangible then by all means, tell us.

Joey,

The refuge of those with no credibility or legitimate argument is always "this is a free country" so "I can do whatever I want." Any credibility you had as the Aberdeener left town in the back of your New York-registered station wagon. Do us all a favor and pursue your "personal projects" that you've "been postponing." AKA, ironing your wife's blouses so she can go to work to recoup her losses on her recent housing short-sale and to support her loser-husband...

Ah, another anonymous poster who wishes to deny others the right to speak.

I know you're trying to be witty. Well, keep trying. Maybe one day you'll get there.

And one more thing - We lost money on the house (who hasn't in this market) but it wasn't a short sale. Someone as all-knowing as you pretend to be would know the difference.

Ah, another carpetbagging douchebag who wishes to use his right to free speech to slander anyone who holds a different viewpoint than him.

I know you were trying to save money on school taxes by denying real Aberdeeners' children fully staffed schools because you don't work and your family couldn't afford that house. Well, keep trying. Maybe one day your wife will save enough money to get you there.

And one more thing - Longtime Aberdeen residents adn their children all lost the day you drove into town. (who didn't with your whiny BOE antics) but it wasn't all lost. Someone who is as big a loser as you isn't capable of accomplishing the agenda you had mind.

Cty. Rd. still watching Mr. K. said...

Don't forget that Mr. K. is about to corruptly cash in again on his 34 and County Road projects. You see Mr. K. is soon to let "the boys" violate the normal approval processes that usually require very specific requirements that are normally processed or analyzed requiring very stringent approvals in front of the zoning or planning boards. Mr. K. had all his people hand hold "the boys" all the way through the process. We can all be sure "the boys" paid big time for that hand holding guidance. This was corruptly done this time by Mr. K. having his corrupt town council do his corrupt bidding. After all what is millions in commercial property taxes to help out the oppressed taxpayers in Aberdeen when Mr. K. can feather his corrupt nest and screw the taxpayers over once again. Right Mr. K.

Joey Warren has accomplished nothing. Someone please tell me something Joey bitched about on this site that actually changed. It seemed to me that every podcast of the BOE meetings that I saw Joey spoke and no one on the Board took him seriously. In the end Joey took his tail, put it betwwen his legs, and ran back to New York. He had a seat at the table and didn't get anything accomplished. He can call the leadership of the teachers' union rodeo clowns, but he, by himself, is an ass clown.

Aberdeener said...

To say I accomplished nothing puts you on the lunatic fringe. Excluding the teachers contract, which was never negotiated, why don't you try naming something on my agenda where the district didn't make any progress.

Anonymous said...

Here we go again. Joey can never just answer a question. You give me a point by point list of what you changed in the school district. I want to know what was in place and how you, not the board, came up with idea to make it better.

Are you finally going to tell everyone that you needed the Board attorney to defend you during the summer?

Aberdeener said...

Ah, someone from the teachers union. Well, that certainly clarifies things a bit.

First, to respond to your assertion that I needed the board attorney to defend me, that's a lie.

By the way, I have a copy of the grievance that you're referencing. Maybe I should just post it online. I'm sure that would make your day. It would certainly make mine.

As for naming one thing I did - writing skills are now being emphasized across all grade levels. Apparently, our teachers never considered it important enough to actually teach and test writing skills until the administration pushed it.

I'm the guy who initiated the change and the board and administration supported me.

Go ahead and tell me students were being tested on their writing skills. I've got the exam papers to prove otherwise.

Anonymous said...

Are you suggesting that had you not been on the Board that Dr. O'Malley wouldn't have turned the District's focus to writing? I am not in the teachers' union. That statement shows why you are an arrogant ass clown. You think you are the only one who can find out what really happens around this town.

Do me a favor? Post the grievance you spoke about and then tell me why you didn't have the backbone to show up at the hearing?

Aberdeener said...

Didn't show up at the hearing? I have no idea what you're talking about, which means you have no idea, either.

As for the writing, you asked for an example and I gave you a big one.

I've got to stop being tempted into arguing with blockheads.

Kauffs secret are not so secret said...

Blockheads Joey?

They are just assholes plain and simple.

The people who doubt your disclosures to the public and the various subject matters and your dedication to a better Aberdeen has enabled many of us to see just a small part of the corruption, ignorance and idiocy perpetrated by the likes of BARZA and the day by day not so secretive Kauff corruption.

It is tough to be the one voice to speak out when those whose corruption and costly ineffective leadership that corruptly runs Aberdeen by an unelected scumbag political power broker.

Right Norm that is what you really are.

Right Norm?

Thank you Mr. Warren said...

Don't let the haters get you down. You did a great service these past years by allowing a too busy taxpayer base the opportunity to see what failed and corrupted leadership exists in this area. The names of Kauff have only be defended occasionally while they all know the corruption of the man is very real and very costly to all of us. He will soon have his day in the hoosgal. I despise men like him who feed off of the hard work of others. His little dictatorship is coming to a close. God riddance to all like him. I am still amazed that a man like Jim Laouro saddled up to be with Kauff.

Did you all forget that he accomplished giving out 6.7% and 9.7% raises to administration which brought salaries up to $130K and $185K. In addition, he got a full time position with benefits to another board members wife without even the benefit of an in-person interview. Now those were accomplishments. Oh yeah and he reworded the mission statement. Another big one.

Aberdeener said...

Hey Anon,

Your ignorance is showing again. I voted against that appointment. And I voted for the raises after those officials cut spending and delivered a 0% budget, saving the taxpayers millions. And yeah, the mission statement was another project I worked on. Remember the old one? The prior mission statement didn't even require that children learn anything. Apparently, you haven't either.

Anonymous said...

The 0 percent budget was BEFORE you got on the board. Apparently the administration was able to pull that off with YOU and without 9.7% raises. You gave them a raise to do what they were already doing.

Anonymous said...

Oh yeah, that appointment you didn't vote for, was recommended by the person you gave a raise so that the salary reached a ridiculous $185K. That's $10K more than the governor makes!

Aberdeener said...

I realize this may be a shocker for you but merit pay is awarded AFTER performance, not before. And O'Malley still earns below the average for superintendents of large districts. And O'Malley costs far less than Quinn since he doesn't have the expense of a secretary.

Salaries should be based on WHAT WE CAN AFFORD not what the person could make elsewhere! Or people may have to move out of town because they can't afford to live here. Not interested in what past superintendents did. Keep it current.

We gave the raises because O'Malley and Irons saved us millions. So, yes, when people save us millions, we can afford to give them raises in the tens of thousands.

Bull, who cares what other Supts make. O'malley took the job and knew what the deal was. I'm not saying he shouldn't have got a raise but he could of took less. That, my dear sir, would have shown the taxpayers of this town that he was a team player. Instead he got 9 percent while people in this town are losing their homes. Next time you and Dr. Dick get together let him know there might be an opening in Toms River, if he hasn't already applied. I hear they pay better. Oh, he can take that Iron Maiden Sue with him.

Aberdeener said...

O'Malley got a $9,000 increase after saving the district millions.

This has nothing to do about money or good management. You don't like the guy, period. So stop quibbling about the raise and just say you want him to leave.

I have a question. With federal investigators all over every corrupt official in NJ (just read the newspaper), why hasn't Kauf and the council been arrested?

I've read on here every day for three years how corrupt they are, and how the dept. of justice, governor, prosecutor, and fbi has been notified. Where are the arrests, indictments, etc.?

For the first two years, I believed what I read on here. Now, since the last election, it just looks like sour grapes from the people Kauf and company beat every two years.

Anonymous said...

I personally don't want O'Malley to leave. I think he's doing a great job. That being said, he should have never taken a $9k raise and then fired dozens of employees. It just isn't right.

Now, I even understand that the blame doesn't lie with him either. I wouldn't turn down a $9k raise from my employer out of the kindness of my heart. That's for sure.

The blame lies with Joey and his merry band of BOE morons. They're supposed to be the protectors of the taxpayers and in charge of doing what's right for the community. O'Malley and Irons are their employees and should take whatever they're given.

Yet, when push came to shove, Joey and those BOE idiots (who unfortunately all run virtually unopposed) were so enamored with 0% that they gave massive pay raises without ever thinking about what problems next year might bring. Then, they had to fire dozens of people from their own community while sending an extra $30k out of town with the administrators. Then, they fell so much in love with O'Malley and were so persuaded by Delaney that they allowed O'Malley to hire Delaney's friend from out of town (the new middle school principal) less than a week after giving dozens of the their own residents pink slips.

Does the blame lie with O'Malley? No it doesn't. He is doing what anyone else would do if they were given anything they wanted by their boss. The blame lies with the scumbags on that BOE and the community at large for not fielding any legitimate candidates to replace them come school board election season...

Aberdeener said...

O'Malley didn't take a raise and then fire "dozens of people".

Six months after getting the raise, Governor Christie announced he was slashing school funding.

At the time of the raise, nobody in the district predicted we'd be seeing such cuts or having to terminate so many people.

Kauff will get his just deserts said...

Investigations take time. The last big one took over ten years. Kauff is good but now that a governor is in place that is a corruption fighter Kauff and his merry mens days are numbered. Laugh at it if you want but why is it not one named person has ever and i mean ever defended Kauff. Hint for you is they all know it is true.

Matawan-Ab’deen board

criticized over switch

Skirmishes and infighting among members apparent

By alison granito

Staff Writer


Allegations of back-room deals, secret proceedings and intimidation were rampant as Matawan-Aberdeen Regional Board of Education members and school officials came under fire from residents at last week’s public meeting.

"The infighting among this board[’s members] shows that you don’t have a handle on how to run this district," Aberdeen resident Jim Duffy said during the public portion of the meeting.

"Secret votes are discussed every year, and situations are whispered about," he said.

"We’re all getting hosed," Duffy added.


"The turbulence within the board gives an insightful look. It’s not whispers anymore," Joe McAleer, Aberdeen, said at the meeting.

"Is a principal who resigns in the middle of the year for our children?" asked one Aberdeen woman. "Are board members who resign really for our children?

"The only ones for the children are a handful of parents," she added.

The controversy at the meeting comes on the heels of the board’s Jan. 16 vote to rescind the resignation of Matawan Avenue Middle School Principal Daniel Skelton. Skelton, who resigned in November after the board refused to appoint an office manager at the middle school, stayed on as principal after tendering his resignation.

The board voted to rescind Skelton’s resignation after board members Janice Gallo, Arthur Fumarola and Gerald Donaghue, who opposed allowing Skelton to stay on, walked out of closed executive session discussions the board had before it took its vote in public.

Gallo and Donaghue unofficially resigned, with board member Maureen Camillary doing so after the meeting. All have reconsidered and were in attendance at last week’s meeting.

Fumarola and Donaghue hold the two Matawan seats on the nine-member regional board.

"I feel Mr. Skelton’s demands and ultimatums are an insult to the Board of Education and the community. The financial package put together in order to retain him is totally out of line and excessive and will cost the taxpayers of this district many thousands of dollars," Gallo said in a prepared statement she read into the minutes at the meeting.

Gallo added that she felt the settlement reached with Skelton sets a dangerous precedent in the district and that it jeopardized the validity of other current Matawan Regional Administrator’s Association contracts.

"We’ve opened the floodgates," she said at the meeting.

According to a Jan. 19 memo distributed to board members by the assistant superintendent for business, Skelton will receive more than $78,000 in severance payments upon separation from the district for compensatory, vacation and sick days.

Compensatory time is generally additional time worked over, above and beyond normal work hours.

"The majority of the board felt he was valuable and wanted to keep him [Skelton]. We then decided to offer him what was contractually viable," Schools Superintendent Michael Klavon said Monday.

At the heart of the conflict among board members is the $24,000 over two years that Skelton will earn in compensatory time if he works for the district through June 2002.

"We have a lot of capable administrators. Nobody’s a god, nobody should be deified," Fumarola said in reference to Skelton’s settlement at the meeting.

"What I want to know is, why was an individual contract written for one principal out of six?" Fumarola said.

"People are in positions where, if they don’t do their jobs they should be held accountable," he added.

TIME CAPSULE#1 cont: said...

"He (Skelton) has established a tremendous amount of leadership and garnered staff and parent support," Klavon said in defense of Skelton. "That has to be looked at in the total picture of things."

Board Attorney Michael Gross said that Skelton’s contract was "uncharted water," since he returned as a district employee 10 years ago after leaving in the 1970s. Gross said that employees hired after 1996 received a different package then those hired earlier. Skelton fell into a gray area, according to Gross.

"Contracts are living, breathing documents. It takes events to interpret them," Klavon said in response to resident inquiries as to why Skelton’s demands were accommodated.

Gallo said in her prepared statement that Gross "ill advised the board" to enter into that agreement with Skelton.

"This settlement sets a dangerous precedent in this district which could have devastating financial implications in future years," she said.

"Certain issues, such as contractual entitlement, should have been challenged by this board rather than conceded to," she added.

Gallo and Fumarola both hinted at the meeting that the vote of certain board members may have been coerced by other board officials.

"It is a sad commentary when people in this world can’t vote their conscience because of intimidation and fear," Gallo said in her prepared statement.

"Conscience should be the determining factor. Certain pressures were put on people. Based on that pressure, votes went a certain way," Fumarola said.

Fumarola also added that certain board members may have been privy to information that others were not until immediately before voting on Jan. 16.

Barbato said at the meeting that no information was withheld from anyone.

"I would hope that no one felt that way and that everyone felt free to vote their conscience," Barbato said Monday. He added that he did not feel an intimidating atmosphere was apparent on the board.

I just checked Mullaney tire. The building was shut with a sign that read closed for a day or two. I don't know if it was for back taxes or not but it sure is closed. Anyone know the real deal on this one.

If it was closed for taxes, it would have a bright neon orange (or yellow) sign saying it was closed, by the State of NJ, etc... was there a sign like that?

As of late yesterday the doors were closed and there was a bright orange sign on the garage window facing Main Street and on the front door. The sign on the front door seemed to have been covered by this morning with a sign that read we will be back in a day or two. The orange in color signs were from the government. Something was going on there late this afternoon. Maybe Bud suddenly came up with the cash.

Although I really enjoy watching all of the Barza connected minions come out of the woodwork to lash out at Warren, I wonder what does any of that have to do with what the union leadership has done to SCREW us members who are busy teaching kids? We have no information except that which Carl wants us to have. Well, I for one am suspicious. I would like any information that Warren has, before I find myself forced to stand at a BOE meeting again, too embarrassed to lift my head up.

P.S. As for those questioning the poster who mentioned teacher bullying: yes, it happened and God help you if you tried to stand up to them. Just ask the numerous employees who are no longer here.

Funny how BARZA Moran Rubino has a selective code of ethics: OK for me and my old friends but if she thinks someone she doesn't like might be doing something, this is what she does! NICE!

INDEPENDENT Sept. 3, 2009

District nepotism policy spurs heated debates
Board wrangles with ethical, legal concerns
BY JACQUELINE HLAVENKA Staff Writer


"I just find that it skirts on doing something unethical," said board member Jan Rubino. "I'm sorry, Gerry, but I do see when Mrs. Donaghue takes on a full-time position, it takes on family coverage; then a board member is directly benefiting from her position. That's something we've talked about for a long time. I don't think promoting a person who is a spouse of a board member looks good."

Anonymous said...

Speaking of Board Member ethics, how come Joey is not sharing who paid for Delaney's campaign, how Dr. Dick helped him with his campaign and all those post cards which went out with no campaign contribution forms filed?

Diana said...

I remember having a conversation with Mr. Skelton during an 8th grade science field trip on why he wanted to leave the district. We had a long time to chat and I could understand his reason for moving on.

Maybe his actual reasons were not conveyed to the Board, but I respect them. I also respect that the Board members at the time maybe did not like the way it was presented. They all acted honestly on their convictions. I have the utmost respect for Ms. Gallo, Mr. Donaghue and Mrs. Camillary.

BARZA ARE MY HEROS said...

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT DELANEY'S POST CARDS AND "DR. DICK"!!!

People in glass houses... yeah, that's right, everyone knows which three ethically challanged idiots you are, who keep trying to dredge this up. Perhaps if you had the slightest idea what in the hell you were talking about, you would have heard that Delaney publicaly invited anyone who wished to see the receipt for his postcards to come and ask him. But since none of you have the BALLS to put your name and face to the accusations, you would not want to admit that you know there is no teeth to your B.S., RIGHT?

Perhaps it would interest all to know that the $3,000 price tag these CPA wannabes keep yaking about is 1) way more than they ACTUALLY cost DELANEY to have printed and sent 2) that $3,000 number comes from the amount DRAPKIN always charged for THEIR campaign mailers! So lame, at least be original if you want to accuse others of following your campaign strategies.

HEY, MR.WARREN:

COULD THE INFORMATION THAT YOU REFER TO IN YOUR POST REGARDING WRITTEN PROOF OF THE WAY MRTA LEADERS WERE REALLY "NEGOTIATING" FOR THE CUSTODIANS AND THE REST OF US BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS?

1) If the MRTA agrees to a slight increase (below the county average), will the
Board guarantee that no bargaining unit will be privatized? It doesn’t make
sense for our Association to sacrifice only to lose members anyway.

PERP WALK IS COMING NORMIE said...

Delaney won asshole no campaign problems. Get onto the real corruption and Norman Kauff and his assorted scumbags. You're an idiot about this Delaney crap. It did not happen and wishing it so is ignorant.

Teaching of children has to happen but when Kauff is robbing the taxpayers blind and his council and boards let him do so you need to put your time in on that very real and costly corruption problem.

You lost your janitor job get over it. Kauff and the rest of his corrupt bunch think they are invincible and that the investigation is not going to happen Let them keep thinking that. Right up until the knock comes on the front door and they turn on each other like the little bitches that they are. I put my money on Drapwig turning states evidence first.I love the fact that the Kauff gang keep thinking that it is not their eventuality that they will in fact have to do the perp walk.

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NORM so START WALKING.

Anon 6:05,

The union filed a baseless grievance against the school board and then told their members that they filed a grievance against me.

So, now I'm contemplating posting that grievance so all their members can see how the union leadership spends their money.

That doesn't make me a liar but calling me one certainly proves you're a fool.

The union leadership will spend nothing for custodians but will spend whatever it takes for themselves and their pals.

Anon 6:19,

I've got far better than that. I'm betting the union's already in conference with their lawyers about how to keep their written offers a secret.

In fact, I'm guessing they'll try to retract their "impasse" and reimpose the media blackout.

If that happens, you'll know how bad it really is.

I am concerned that the poster who replied to my post may have a reading comprehension issue. Had you understood what I wrote, you would have realized that I was referencing several teachers and administrators who have been run out of district by BARZA. I fortunately still have my job and am very happy that the new administration has raised the bar for acceptable teaching. Not all of us are "just in it for the money and summers off". I consider myself well compensated and fortunate to be able to do what I love everyday. Life as a teacher in the MARSD is much better now that BARZA is off the Board and the inmates no longer run the District.

ANOTHER MEETING AT CME NORM? said...

BUSY WEEKEND FOR THE KAUFFKINS I HEAR RUMORS ARE SWIRLING THAT KAUFF CALLED FOR A MANDATORY MEETING THAT HAS SHAKEN THE CORRUPT POLITICAL NORMAN KAUFF AND CME MONEY SOAKING ENTERPRISE TO ITS CORE.
TOPICS UP FOR DISCUSSION SUNDAY MORNING HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THE INVESTIGATION THEY KNOW IS UNDERWAY AND ALSO CAME WITH A VERY STERN ADVISORY THAT HAD MUCH TO DO WITH KEEPING THE CORRUPT SECRETS OF ALL OF THE PAYOFFS, HIDDEN PROPERTY OWNERSHIP AND EVEN I HEAR HOW THE COUPLE OF COUNCILMAN KNOWN TO NOT KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT MUST BE FINALLY SEALED. IS OUR NORMAN KAUFF AND HIS MENTOR DAVE SAMUELS CONCERNED THAT THE CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE WILL COME TO A CLOSE? I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS ALSO A VERY STRONG POSSIBILITY THAT THE #2 POLITICAL CONTRIBUTOR CME HAS ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE CORRUPT COMMANDANT OF NEW JERSEY CORRUPT POLITICAL COMMANDER GEORGE NORCROSS TO START TO WORK HIS EQUALLY CORRUPT AND BOUGHT AND PAID FOR POLITICIANS TO RUN INTERFERENCE AND CORRUPTLY COVER FOR CME AND THEIR "GOOD WORKER" NORMAN KAUFF. ISN'T IT NICE TO SEE THAT OUR NORMAN KAUFF AND HIS GROUP COULD ALL BE THE LATEST POLITICAL LOW LIFES TO BE SEEN ACROSS THE STATES TV STATION BROADCAST, RADIO AND EVEN MAJOR NEWSPAPERS. WE WILL ALL BE SO ABERDEEN PROUD? RIGHT NORM? BY THE WAY DID ANYONE SEE IF THE PARKING LOT AT THE CME HEADQUARTERS IN SAYREVILLE WAS ESPECIALLY CROWDED WITH CARS THIS PAST SUNDAY MORNING? I HOPE EVERYONE AT LEAST HAD A LITTLE NOSH WHILE BEING READ THE RIOT ACT BY NORMAN KAUFF AND DAVE SAMUELS. NOW ALL NORMAN HAS TO DO IS KEEP HIS KAUFFKINS FROM TURNING STATES EVIDENCE. ANYONE SEE IF BILL SHENTON' CAR WAS THERE? IF HE WAS NORM THINKS THAT MAKES IT A DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING. NO IT DON'T NORMIE. NICE TRY THOUGH. GOOD LUCK NORMAN WITH THAT ONE. KAUFF AND HIS BUDDY AXLEROD TRIED THAT SAME EXCUSE WHEN KAUFF USED TO ORDER THAT HIS ILLEGAL BREAKFAST MEETINGS BE HELD OUT OF TOWN. SILENCE IS GOLDEN IF KAUFF CAN KEEP THEM QUIET. SURE?

K-12 Teacher, Thank you for your post to show those in this community how strangling the BARZA hold was on this district for years. And how unethical they were.

I join you in saying good riddance to BARZA and wish we could get rid of the 3 left on the board, namely, Rubino, Demarest and Ruprecht. Their only concern is regaining the control they have lost and for their own personal gain and gain for their children and friends children; ie.,ensuring their own kids always had the best teachers, best classes, twisting teachers arms for higher grades for their kids to have higher GPA's, scholarship money etc. I'm sure the nasty poster that criticized you must be a BARZArite.

Thank you for supporting Dr. O'Malley and his efforts in raising standards across the board for ALL the children in this district. You are the type of teacher that we need plenty more of in this district.

Of all the favors that may or may not have happened, none are more egregious then Mr.Donaghues. His family personally gained from his influence on the board. From the beginning when he got her the job, to now, when she is full time and and his family recieves the full benefits package. The comments that have been mentioned about others are strickly hearsay with no proof, yet no one has a problem with what he did. The people in question are no longer on the board, yet the biggest offender of unethical behavior still is.

Mullaney Tires was closed for owing back taxes. Typical of "Bud" Mullaney to put a sign over it reading, "Opening in a day or two." Smoke and mirrors are what he did to Matawan when he was a Council person. It all makes sense now...no campaign signs, no comments in the APP, no driving around Matawan with a big campaign sign. It was sad to see his business closed. Don't wish that on anyone. It is obvious he should not be considered for Matawan Borough Council. He has difficulty managing the finances of his business, don't want him to manage Matawan's tax dollars.

Anonymous said...

Poor Bud? Cry me a friggen river, it was probably his arrogance that put him in the position he is in with the taxes. I don't blame his embarrasment covering the sticker but this individual is a power hungry nusance if you ask me based on his last performance on the councel. Speaking under his breath at public meetings, making faces and gestures when the Mayor speaks. I am no fan of the Mayor mind you but Bud's conduct was sophmoric at best and sour grapes when what's her name was beaten in the special election. I can't imagine him getting back into the inner circle, its bad enough between the dealing with the idiotic school taxes let alone having a jackass like him making decisions in the town I reside.

Hey K-12 teacher, I too am glad to see Barza go, however I would be happier to see every individual teacher in district get their walking papers based on the garbage test scores this district presents in all grades. All the MRSD teachers do is hide behind their tenure and union scumbags while they reap the benefits of my hard earned tax dollars. I say shit can the lot of ya as I'm sure there are 10 collage graduates for every 1 of you that would take the job at half the pay and do a better job. I anticipate you will be blaming the parents for the test scores and I agree that the parents have some influence, however the onus is on those in front of our children all day. Oh, by the way, O'Malley is a hack and has done nothing to date as far as I am concerned. There hasn't been anyone in that office in the past 20yrs that has done anything worth while.

Aberdeener said...

Actually, it's a minority of the teachers that cause the problems. The rest have simply been cowed by an abusive union.

I can't begin to imagine what methods a teacher could use to counterbalance the influence of a home enviroment headed by a parent who could post, on a public blog, the word "sc-mbag" in a comment about their child's education. Really. It boggles the mind.

Pay freeze concerns said...

Anyone hear anything around town resulting from the town employees supposedly accepting pay freezes? I see someone posts on here who monitors the newspapers for an official correction, clarification or anything close to an honest explanation from the two men quoted in the news release that made these claims. As of yet not a word from the manager or the mayor quoted in the article. Who are we to believe? Did the employees accept pay freezes or not? The manager and mayor and their silence seems very questionable to me.

Should we still be looking for an explanation from silent members of our towns leadership after such a public proclamation? Was it put forward at the expense of our hard working employees whose futures and livelihood hang in the balance. I think it is a very easy decision on who to believe. Do we or the town employees really want to believe a politician or a politically appointed town manager who works at the discretion of the same politicians.

It is quite simple it seems to me due to the silence by those who claimed to have negotiated pay freezes while there is not one shred of proof to us taxpayers of the supposed pay freezes. We taxpayers have little other possibilities or conclusions to be garnered yet since only a few posts have voiced a few opposing views from anonymous employees or their equally anonymous spouses who have denied that any such agreement was accepted by over one hundred employees. Our town leaders who may also wrongly think that these same employees will vote for them after toying with their futures and families livelihoods politically. I think such counted on votes are very doubtful to say the least since the employees are probably justly concerned voting for a leadership that may sell them and their families down the river just for votes.

The proof of this will have to wait of course since public budgetary disclosures always seem to come in the third quarter. We taxpayers will have to wait and see. That is likewise very bad and a toxic balloon hanging over the heads of our town employees who will be held captive waiting for the other shoe to drop as to their questionably political fates. I cannot imagine working under such a situation each and every day.

Hey Anon @4:50pm,
As a parent of children currently in this school district, my kids have had some of the best teachers and some of the worst teachers. Teachers have to teach the curriculum they are given. Dr. O'Malley did raise the standards across the district. Teachers are now teaching at a higher level. He also put a stop to the BS of favoritism for kids of the well connected. Now a student needs to pass a test to get into AP courses. Honors and advanced honors class assignments are also based on test scores and not so highly on teacher recommendation. I'm thankful for the good teachers, getting rid of them makes no sense. I agree with Mr. Warren that their must be many teachers afraid to speak against the union, and certainly were afraid to speak against the old BARZA crowd for fear of job loss.
I hope other teachers join K-12 Teacher in speaking out against what is wrong with our system. Hopefully then, the improvement we are starting to see in this school district will continue to move in the right direction.

Might be able to help about the car thing for anonymous above. It might be that a unregistered car is all right on a persons property. A couple of years ago I went to town hall and asked about getting a car in working order for my teenage son. I was told I could have one such vehicle without a problem according to the law. So it is allowed it seems. As for the trash I don"t see that one. Just so you know. You can always call and complain or maybe ask a question why.

Hahahahaha... That's right Little Nicky, I wrote a little poem for you too...

Each year, what a campaign the Aberdeen Republicans run...

When their candidates don't seem to know anyone...

Instead of recruiting community leaders...

They consistently run the same Tom, Dick and Peters...

In lieu of promoting ideas new or novel...

They sit around and watch Little Nicky grovel...

Then, on the computer, they b*tch and complain...

That big bad Kauff is wholly to blame...

Or if it's not Kauff, it's CME...

But they never say, "wait it's me"...

Last year, they didn't know Tom just moved to town...

Or, that douche Garaguso is always a clown...

Nicky just yelled "Kauff!" on this sh*tty blog...

While Sheila and Vail were bumps on a log...

Then, when the results were finally tallied...

The Aberdenn Dems had clearly rallied...

Now, one year later, Little Nicky still types...

Alone in his room, taking internet snipes...

While the Dems are out walking and going to meetings...

No one sends Nicky holiday greetings...

Then, when next November comes around...

The Dems will knock a new set of misfits down to the ground...

And back to the blog Little Nicky will run...

To yell and scream that the Dems are done...

That they're dirty, grimy and here come the Feds...

While Aitken and Warren yell "Off with their heads!"...

But, what they don't get and never will glean...

They'll then be yelling about 2013!!!!!
