"Curious", why are you so sure no one will care at Commissioner Mills' office? Could it be because as a BOCES administrator, you know that BOCES makes all their own decisions.
Stop worrying about where my post is saying I am! I am a Nassau County Tax Payer and I Have Rights.
Tell me where on Long Island any house or building has sold for more than it's worth and I will show you a scam. This time let's catch the BOCES administrators and throw them in jail, were they belong. Let's take the 18+million that was approved and let's give it to the kids.
Sassygirl, you are very wise! The hole voting process was a sham. The polling places were only Nassau BOCES schools and the administrators were the ones in charge. Of course they didn't want to look at your id, because then they would be held accountable. BOCES administrators and school board members just kept entering, voting "yes" and exiting and repeating the process. No Way on earth did that vote pass by over 2,000 votes on it's own. Show me 2,000 people who like to get raped and would vote "yes"!
All of this is a joke! Commissioner Mills will do nothing-he's retiring in June and want's to use up his sick day's and then once to be rehired as a consultant for BOCES so he can get a nice retirement package and his salary. Suozzi wants to give BOCES more control over Nassau County:(
Nobody is watching!!
Awwwww, so sad. Please be careful or you will violate your parole and wind up back in prision. It is obvious that you are a failed educator who was tossed from the system. Why dont you tell us who you are? Why don't you tell us how you know so much? Why do you hide behind the cloak of annonymity of the interent.
I understand there is a Nassau BOCES meeting tonight at 7;30. Why don't you come there and make your statements to everyone's faces. Be brave, libel Mr. Farber face to face, you low life. Go ahead, or are you too scared to stand behind what you profess in the darkness of cyber space? You are a true low life, dragging peopel through the mud from under your desk.
Please know that public officials don't responde to letters printed in crayon and without the name of the author. If your not a BOCES emplyees, you cannot fear retribution, or, maybe your an attorney whose spouse is suing BOCES and wasting the taxpayers' money?
Fool.

Listen, stop the insults! What have I said that is ignorant! Or, as a BOCES administrator, do you say something and then go hide. I am not playing hide and seek with you. You are a bully! Leave Sassy alone, are you afraid she may get someplace. Where I went to school, if we had something to grind it was an axe, not an act. But, you have been acting for so long, you don't know who you are anymore. Run, Run, Hide, Hide-I know you will have something stupid to say when your done hiding-I can't wait! Try to make it have purpose, you bumbling idiot!!
Awwww, poor baby, are you and Sassyslut dating? Or are you the same person (self loathing, interesting). Problen is that she has not point and has no grasp of the facts and is trying to do a hatchet job on a worthy project. It is obvious to all who read this that she has an ax to grind. Let her go to a BOCES meeting and ask questions and not make assumtions. Then she can send her self hating emails.

You're probably right, Larry, but I'm going to try! This is an outrageous deal and I am going to try to fight to right this wrong.
I don't plan to just write letters. As a real estate broker, I have access to online public records that are not available to the public; but they are not as detailed as I want for this. I am going to the courthouse, and I will also be at the town building dept. to get some clue as to these renovations that have somehow managed to doubled the 2008 appraised value of this property. The clerk's office and town charge very little to make copies of these records. I know just where to go to get the information I need to present to make a strong case that the people in Nassau County are being raped.
I have to try to make my voice heard; many ,many families on Long Island are facing the lose of their homes and they can't sell them and get out; the reason on most of these homes is that the tax bill is not affordable. Take Levittown, for example-the school taxes there are off the charts; over 350 homes for sale in Levittown and last year their superintendent decided to redo his office suite and put in a washer and dryer for himself!
It is time for the school districts and BOCES to be held accountable and use the hard earned tax money they receive for education, and not for overpriced buildings for their administrators.
I just can't look the other way anymore. Who knows-maybe I'll run for some office in the schools and really knock them on their butts! But, I just can't stand by anymore and watch this continue to happen. Hope you wish me luck!
"As a real estate broker, I have access to online public records that are not available to the public" WOWWWWWWWWWWWW, you have access to public records which the public does not have? Were you special ed too. That explains it, you are a BOCES drop out. Damm, I am so sorry for having tried to explain the truth to you. You are obviously someone who has no capacity to understand.

"I intend to go to the Nassau Clerks office and pull all the property records,.."
And they will tell you what? Only the purchase price paid by the current owner. You obviosly know this. Or, if you don't know this, why have you been runing your mouth without the facts?

"I am going to the courthouse,"
Why, to check with your parol officer? What will you find out there? If you were a real estate broker you would know that no land records are kept there.

"I will also be at the town building dept. to get some clue as to these renovations that have somehow managed to doubled the 2008 appraised value of this property."
Huh? what will they tell you. Will you look through the plans? What will you find out? If you are a real estate broker you would know that you cannot determine the appraised value from the buildings department. That is done by the Assessor's off and has little to do with the actual market value.

"Who knows-maybe I'll run for some office in the schools and really knock them on their butts!"
Great, let me know when you run for office, I can file too and then debate you and show you up for the little lying ignorant weasel that you are. Oh, but wait, I guess you did not pay income taxes like most of the other politicians, so you can't run. Unless you are selected for Obama's cabinet. On second thought, please run. You will have to explain to the people why you were fired by BOCES for incompetence.
Why dont you go to your local school board meeting and ask what BOCES does for your district? WHy don't you come to BOCES and ask questions and be sure to idetify yourself. Coward.

One thing is for sure-I told everyone many posts ago, you would be back, with something stupid to say! And, As day follows night......
If you would like anybody to pay attention to you, why don't you first go out and buy yourself a dictionary....spelling is a course in school you must pass to get a diploma-Did you buy yours because if you passed Spelling, you must have paid off the teacher!
Of course you don't say anything knowledgeable-who cares there is a meeting tonight, no citizens are ever listened to, that is why nobody goes to the BOCES board meetings, because nobody cares, but you know that!
That is how they get away with the lavish spending- How about those new laptops they all just got, are they really needed? Come on it's just another excuse for them to get something for free!

Now your defaming our first President of the Us. What is wrong with you? Can't you spell out the facts without defaming!
Nassau BOCES purchased a building for millions more than it is worth in a downsizing economy. Nothing, no real estate has made any money, you can't argue with that it's a fact jack. So why was BOCES given permission from Mills' office to purchase such a high priced piece of real estate? That is the question? You may want to continue to libel all, who post, but you still have not answered the question? Who's the one that keeps running from the truth? THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!!

Did you enjoy the Board meeting-you and your cronies are a bunch of knuckleheads patting each others backs.
Again, I told you I am a Nassau County resident, that is all that matters-as usual you have not answered the open question= Why did BOCES spend more than market value on a building????
Stop defaming people and answer the question!!!!

What do you mean? What truth about what?? Could it possibly be about Nassau BOCES and the scam it has played on Nassau County residents for so many years? By the way, good job, to the Nassau County schools who voted for the BOCES budget, only a couple of schools vetoed it-too bad there aren't more boards that have the nerve to "just say NO"!!

Where did you get the idea that George Farber, who just died, had anything to do with the building on Merrick Avenue? The guy was in the restaurant supply business much of his life and had absolutely no connection with Farberware, founded in 1900 by a tinsmith on the lower East Side. Please document your claim or shut up...There's enough real conflict of interest floating around Nassau BOCES without having to inject some bogus charges into the mix!

"If they abolished BOCES, you would never know the difference." I hope you are not referring to the students and families that depend upon Boces and their services.
You couldn't be more wrong in your logic.
Boces provides an excellent educational alternative for students whose challenges can not be addressed in a more "traditional" or mainstream environment.
No public school that I know has the capability to have students in wheelchairs who wear diapers in attendance.
Your retort could be "well send them to a private institution." But sometimes that is not feasible, too cost prohibitive.
General Education teachers usually do not want to have to teach " survival skills"(ie, bathing, feeding, dressing,)on top of the NYSTATE Curriculum. That is why they became General Education not Special Education or educators of severly impaired students. All kids need to attend some kind of school even if they are only learning how to tie their shoes or count to 10. They can feel like they are taking part in life and can have some kind of regimen.
On the other end of the spectrum, Boces has schools for students with emotional disabilities, learning disabilties, or just different interests.
Let's not forget for the less severly impaired students the benefits of "vocational" schools.
Education is not one sized fits all.
Oh Yeah

I work for Western Suffolk Boces and I know what's going on... It's a Glorified Babysitting Service. Teachers do little to nothing-Administration looks the other way. It's a shame and a scam..and the taxpayer pays dearly for it.

This sounds like the brilliant idea of Naomi Glaser who is with BOCES in Wantagh. It sounds like it will give her husband Paul Glaser access to more young boys.
Cureently she lives in Levittown with her pedophile husband Paul Glaser. The y are at 92 Beverly Place.

I Can't believe some of the posts on this board. They are very outrageous and downright hateful. Why are probably fully grown people vitriolic online?

That is very middle school in my opinion. And just downright crazy. I can't believe anyone would go as far as putting someone's address on the site. And no I am not the woman/man or friend of the accused "pedophile."

Perhaps if you were one of his many victims then you would see things in a different light. Unfortunately the law says because of statutes there is nothing that can be done, but a little harassment is fine with me.
