Palmyra definetly needs taking over by "someone", have you been in there lately ? everything is old, worn, dull, dingy, with a vintage 60's look about it. Not saying it should be Phoebe but it sure could stand a revamping from someone. I will say Phoebe and staff treated me well last year during my 2 week visit but agree they could really do better on their pricing which is harming industrial growth in the area.
Spending all this taxpayer money on studies sure does remind me of Albany, leaders can't make a move without a very costly "study" which most times end up costing the tax base more as a result of said studies. Seems we're electing officials who can't use their own judgement and knowledge they claimed to have when campaining but are having to depend on the input of consultants who are being finacially rewarded for our lack of decision makers on the board. One thing for sure, elections do roll around every 4 years.
I'll bet'cha its profitable to her since she's the President/CEO of ACT, she probably has a few family members employed there too. Was'nt there a scandal locally a few years back about one of these groups and all the people onboard were family members drawing funds ?? No worry, Obama showed them how its done as an organizer and he's not going to put the IRS on them.
I don't think Mrs Johnson was expecting these type comments against her agenda, LOL I wish she'd expain what Albany Community Together Inc. is and what it does ? Could it be another city grant "front" and waste of taxpayer money.
I'm curious, just what political seat do you have your eyes set on ?? School board maybe ?? After all thats gone down in the last few years your now concerned now about the mass house cleaning going on ?? Most people think its great the system is being sterilized from top to bottom and long overdue but of course there's always a few which don't.
Mrs Johnson, in your 2nd paragraph you ask "how can we expect our kids to "adjust" when every year there are changes in administration and faculty ? " The kids can "adjust" easily to changes but what you should really be worried about is the "learning" part that you left out, THAT is whats important !
The military found out years ago Para-Medics are not fighters, fighters are not Para-Medics. Who wants to be treated by someone with soot/ashes under there finger nails and smelling of sweat & smoke. When you or a loved one are having a heart attack or attacked by a pit bulldog you don't want too hear from the 911 call center the Para-Medics are out fighting a fire and that you'll just have to wait on a back-up unit to arrive from miles away. If this goes through look for a new public service administrator to be hired to oversee the newly merged Fire Dept./ EMS Service at 100K + per year. You'll soon discover the hard way this is a bad idea but once you jump off the bridge its impossible to turn back.
LOL, I hope they were checking for hitch-hikers looking for a ride back to Albany, I don't believe she did this spree alone without Clyde..
Folks its all a show put on by Saxby, he won't talk about getting his hole-in-one while playing golf with Obama last Monday and getting the Prez to autograph the ball. It happened to be a workday for most hardworking Americans. All the media reported this but not our local news media. Wonder why ?? He's Democrat Blue all the way plus much more !
Its my understanding that she is/was an aide, not a classroom teacher. Either way she's done for in education, rightfully so.
