Bialon filed his already. Who else filed? Bialon ia an attorney. What are the rest of you low lifes that hide behind your fake names that dont have no guts to put name in this stupid blog that doesnt mean anything to 99.9% of the voters in the Belle Vernon Area. Read the Bible, go to church and ask forgiveness to lives you have ruined.

If i remember someone last week refered to director Grata as being of questionable sexual orientation and without children. Another replied whats that have to do with his job on the board. The fact is, true Bialon is an attorney but that doesn't make him better than the next person. So don't refer to others as low lifes. It's not a person's education but what's in his heart and how he lives life. No one is responsible for ruining another's life its up to THEM if their life is ruined. If this blog is stupid then stay off it. Some dont like when facts are stated here for fear it may educate some as to how individuals are in real life when not sitting at a meeting as a board member.

Sure he filed; his ego wouldn't permit him to not file. He voted for our contract and signed it but as a teacher I could never vote for a candidaate of his morality. Nobody ruined his life but HIMSELF. Stay off this blog if it's so stupid and by the way if those who use this blog are low lifes, speak for yourself, YOU'RE on it.
Right on

Article in the paper said Cramer has some oppositon for magistrate. People need to vote his a-- out and thats one way to stop the Jesse train in BVASD. If he loses he will lose alot of clout and hopefully we could rid the board of his followers starting with Bialon. Each election we could vote another out and eventually cut out that "cancer".
Totally agree with you. If Cramer loses his race, he also loses his clout with the board. You better believe one top administrator is putting out big bucks in Cramer's race as well as Bialon's. Taxpayers need to rid the district of both Cramer and Bialon. Once their influence is no longer there believe Grata and Naylor can work together along with two newly elected members maybe give Whiteko and Sotta (if he is running) a chance and hopefully work together for the good of the students and taxpayers.

RT taxpayers: If the BVA school board isnt sockin it to us the township commisioners are. The latest on that front is that Temoshenka isnt seeking re election but will be awarded the $80 thousand position as township manager. Guess a deal was made. Why bother to advertise the position? What a farce.

This is an obvious conflict of interest and should not be allowed to happen. Going from a commissioner position to a business manager is no different than a district magistrate holding a BVASD athletic director position plus a security position, etc...

2 individuals with conspicuous backgrounds to join that board. Remember sorta had an ethics violation on the water board and paid back thousands? Short term memory loss doesn't help the BVA's concept of moving forward. Check the records at ethics commission under their names. Greta was in charge of ambulance service that went south too. Think and learn before you speak. Learn about all candidates before you profess the pontiffs.

Do remember both situations. No memory loss on even past board members though; BVA has always had some shady characters, so to speak, holding a seat on the school board. And the last ten years was no exception..think back even further. What you need to look at is: Who better knows a taxpayer's concerns than a PROPERTY OWNER candidate; who conducts himself PROPERLY in public rather than a free for all on a main street with your spouse(ex)for the townspeople to witness; or who can CIVILY socialize in clubs and taverns rather than frequent those establishments and be under the INFLUENCE. Members of the school board represent the PEOPLE of this community and I for one do not want represented by one who qualifies of the aforementioned. Nor should an individual sit on the board who belittles others or begrudges those who question matters. Nor should that board member question why a citizen is speaking to another board member. This is still the good old USA. BVASD doesn't need a "little Hitler".

It is very entertaining reading all of these comments about the school board members and all of the negative comments toward them. Guess what though? They will probably be on the board next year too. Year after year~ you keep voting them back in.
Remember when

Do you remember back in the 70s board members went to Floria for whatever and slept in $300 a night rooms, bought Disney sweatshirts, and sent their suits to the laundry and charged everything to the district?(you and I really paid for it all thru our tax dollars). Or the board member who couldn't get the garbage contract because it was a conflict of interest with him on the board but he managed to receive the checks thru another hauler's name or the board member who had a business where Burger King now is and shot someone or the board member who is still awaiting charges from the federal government as to his actions at a local credit union? Yea the residents of this community need to look at not only the candidate but how well he has done his job as a current board member and how well he conducts himself in public and his treatment to the residents of this area.

Just read a comment from Remember When and they could have added the money that the district put out for Kraft's when he was suspended. Think the health plan for his family at that time was around 1800 a month and he paid around 400 so we were still footin the bill for him of about $1400 a month. Do you know how long that dragged out. Then it was left to the court to dismiss his employment the district didnt do it. also what about Godzak putting his wife in a 90+thousand dollar position. Was all this ethical? If you want to pass judgment or have backgrounds surface then get everyone's.

How about putting together a list to start?

Kraft- Collecting $1400/mo for health plan during suspension prior
to judge's dismissal.

Godzak- recipient of $90,000 position created by BVA school board
pending ethical violation.

Are there any other violations or questionable practices to add to list?

How about Jesse Cramer and his fake letter to the board to pay his son instead of his brother as an asst coach. He should have been fired on the spot but not at BVA.

Yes it was Fraud. He should have been fired on the spot! I can't think of any other school district that would have let that slide other than JCA (Jesse Cramer Area ).

You are entitled to your opinion but that statement is a little severe unless you have experienced it personally. I remember that same statement made about a former administrator who at one time was in a classroom. Then you know one doesn't know what goes on behind closed doors with those that are married or seen with attractive companions. Think about it.
