Have you not seen the crowd in Cos's corner??? Yeah, he has his sister doing his dirty work. How fkin dumb are you? I'll answer my own question.

Cara is a taxpayer in the village and on the forum her name is attached to her comments, honey. If I read the forum correctly, she and another writer were concerned about possible no voter's with a grudge getting on the board. I believe there's no chance of that. There are too many very popular and educated individual's running. But I can understand the concern.

If you wish to be cute and bring the discussion here, I will answer their question here.

The No voter's running for the BOE are Lori Sementilli, Fred Schell, Hans Hendrix, Robert Berger, Orlo Burch.

Happy asshool???

Ill tell ya where I stand- and that is against this merger that has taken place. I've heard that they plan on closing Remington school and send our kids to that shit hole Fisher in Mohawk. Where is the logic in that. Remington is larger and in far better condition that that school. Was it promised so that the people of Mohawk would vote for it. Use the Mohawk shithole for offices for the super and all the others that pushed this merger. I do not want my children to go there. Wake up citizens and start complaining this must not be allowed.

I'm sorry a person who voted no shouldn't run for the school board? Should the person's child also enroll in another district? Wow starting to sound like we are back in the days of segregation huh Cara and clan!!!!? A persons political view shouldn't matter on their ability to fill a school board seat. Your ABILITY TO HOLD A GRUDGE IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS!

A friend of mine voted no because he dreamed one day he'd buy a house and raising his family with the school in his backyard. That is exactly what he did 15yrs ago. He made no bones about it and he voted no. He said he realized we needed to merge but he couldn't bring himself to vote yes. I would vote for him if he were running.

As for the rest of you no voting asshools that attempted to stir up every bullshtt excuse to drum-up no votes because you have lack of vision or are simply selfish... NO I don't think you have any business on a BOE.

There is nothing wrong with someone voting against the merger and then attempting to gain a seat on the Board. This is a democracy whereby one can voice an opinion and concern (and vote) and then pursue a position that "appears" to be contradictory to their former views or position.

Just because someone votes against a merger does not mean that they will not be an effective member of the Board. It simply means that they voted against the merger and now are iterested in sitting on the Board --- period.

There is NO CAUSE AND EFFECT here. Surely, someone has the right to voice their concern around the "agenda" one may have, however, it is just that - a concern.

Many of us know how much of a loudmouth a certain person is, however, they still have the right to voice a concern.

Just let the voters decide who they feel comfortable with on the Board --- that's the way the democratic process works. The voters will speak and the school district will have to live with that, and trust their own voting decision.

Does this make sense to those who have a concern?

It should. Let the voting take place. Unless the voting process is tainted, then everyone should be satisfied with the democratic process we have in place.

Make sense, everyone?

Very Touching...I'm playing God Bless America right now.

With this being a democracy and all, let's see how many votes Ms.(axe to grind) Lori Sementilli and the others (who the hell are they) gather. My guess is their returns will be dismal.

The No voter's running for the BOE are Lori Sementilli, Fred Schell, Hans Hendrix, Robert Berger, Orlo Burch.

Yes but lets be clear on where they stand were you for or against the merger put it out their, I dont want someone on the board to make it hard to get things done. I want the peoples voice to go forward, not to have misinformed people or people to grind an ax in the process, just be honest put out your opionion, I will vote on merit I just want the truth. Be honest if you have nothing to hide.

So basically you only want to add people on the board that will say YES to everything and never challenge or question any proposals? Isn't that how you people are in the situations you are in today? Sounds like you just don't want anyone who might have a differing opinion. That doesn't sound democratic to me.

Not quite. I don't want someone in there that's upset the merger occurred and wishes to cause harm. I have a feeling that 2 out of 3 voters feel the same way.

. You don't want people to vote no to the ridiculous spending that is going to occur. These no people are the people that want to keep your butts out of the situation you are currently in. People yes isn't the answer to everything that is why society has laws.

Ilion School district has always been in the best financial shape valley wide. Now all of a sudden there will be ridiculous spending. So we need Ms.(axe to grind) Lori Sementilli and the others (who the hell are they) to help. I doubt it.

Apparently you haven’t noticed the brain-power running from both towns.

I expect Cos is worried about who the Board members are that will be conducting his annual performance review and voting on his raises and hiring a new Superintendent.

Cos pushed for a merger because it was needed. Every BOE in the valley confirmed their belief a merger was needed. As for the actual voting...you can't fix stupid.

A merger does creates a new board and puts he's job in jeopardy.

Cos is clearly good at what he does and has gone over the top to give our kids what they need. At this point if he needs to be worried about his job, that's sad.
