The Village of Lyndonville recently hired a new Village Clerk. It is Terri Woodworth the daughter of Village of Lyndonville DPW (Terry Woodworth) Nepotism at its best. Nice to see the money stays in the family. See the article in the Medina Journal.

Roger Woodworth was the Lyndonville DPW Superintendent for 30 years, then they hired his son Terry Woodworth to be the Lyndonville DPW Superintendent, now they hire Terry daughter Terri Woodworth to be the Lyndonville Clerk/Treasurer. It will never end, I thought Civil Service was suppose to take care of these things.

The new clerk doesnt' have any formal training. The tax payers will have to pay for her to go to college and learn accounting. In the meantime they have hired an accountant to do the treasurers job. Why should the tax payers have to pay her to go to college and pay for the accountant. Maybe they should take away the treasurer title away and not pay for it.
Nepotism is bad

These people are shameless. Why don't they hire her mother to? Then the whole family could work there. What a scam. The ad in the paper said that accounting skills were a must. If I was one of the applicants that applied I would file a law suit. This is like the Yates Town clerk getting her son 3 jobs at the town.

For some reason and I don't know why but this was not a civil service job. They should have interviewed off the list but they just did open interviews and there were people with high experience that did not get the job.

Nuts to all you clueless folks, sitting around in the basement writing this drivel. Why don't you do a little research instead of making outrageous statements? Is everyone in this town like you uninformed "citizens?"

Well I really don't know how to comment to all of you. Here, how''s this, your all a bunch of blow-hard's. As the last poster stated you are ALL clueless. None of you were involved in the selection, so how do you know what her qualifications are? How do you know the qualifications of those that applied? Do you know what the qualifications of the last 3 clerks were?

The Village clerk anywhere in NYS is an appointed position that runs for the same term as the Mayor. But, she did take the CS exam anyway.

No-one attends any of the meetings, so how would you even begin to know what goes on? Everyone is encouraged to come, ask questions and comment.

No-one wants to be involved in any of the positions that are available. That is the zonning board and zoning board of appeals. Do you know why? It takes time and you never seem to have it available!

If there are people interested they have never taken the time to let anyone know and in that case it is your/there fault.

If someone wants to hire a lawyer and find out how the hiring went they are more than entitled too.

Nothing but, a bunch of complainers that cannot do anything except complain and set anonymously behind there computer throwing accusations about!

I feel so sorry for you.Behind the scene

Who cares anyways how qualified do you have to be to run a government with a population of 838. How many people are there to pick from after you take the kids out of the equation? Governments this small shouldn't even exist.

well, Pointless, if you lived in the Village, maybe you could come to the meetings and advocate for them to be dissolved and be part of Yates. If residents clamored for dissolution the local government would have to listen and consider. Maybe Yates folks don't want to see that. That would make their taxes go up. You think Yates wants to have to run the water and sewer works? Doubtful.

Thank you Oliver. If more people became involved we wouldn't be in the position we are in today.

Apparently pointless was absent from life when we went through this the consolidation process. And, yes it was taken off the table just because of the higher taxes the Town population would have seen. As far as the water and sewer treatment plants are concerned anyone can oversee them, it's the operators that run them properly. Personally I think that we as a Village do not receive the services that we pay for from the Town in dollars. And I would think that may be true for most Villages.

In a County of about 45,000 people I think that we could streamline the most by centralizing these functions (Villages+Schools) into one place and go from there. You coould also throw some Towns into this, maybe all of them.

That is not up to me because I am not the KING!

I forgot to add that the Police and Fire Departments should be thrown into this also.

I feel bad for the people that have to deal with this women. I bet they would hire the son too if he didnt live out of state. This is a family that will do anything to get ahead. I will pray for them.

You have to be damaged to win a lawsuit. Who was harmed?
