From the people that Gave the Sleazy former Superintendent a sweet heart deal before he went off to Mass...and another job to help himself to...Shocking....they are all in cahoots with the Boss Gardener Machine...Working together Works is what they say and we keep going deeper in the hole....In Schenectady they fire the Budget Analyst for doing his job...lets see what the school district does to this one....give him a raise and a promotion? Nothing has changed since Ely was taken care of.

I wonder what kind of magic accounting they'll try for next years budget? Lewis term expires next year - time for her to take the high road and not run for reelection!
