I'm surprised the two hosts can correctly operate a telephone.

Who even listens to a pothead and an anti veteran scumbag anyway?

Private person?

I wish they had called the superintendent out when he refused to address the question. She is not a "private person" she is an employee of the Utica City School District making well over $100,000.00 a year. As long as she is being paid by the taxpayers of this state she is not a "private person" and the taxpayers are entitled to an explanation instead of the patented "it is against our policy to discuss personnel matters". There are no private issues for those on a public payroll or at least there shouldn't be.

<quoted text>yea what was that phone call all about.. It made no sense to call out a person who works there and is doing a good job. Why would anyone go after a person directly without any thing to back it up . If a person is qualified to work at a particular position why pick at a person because of some political grudge or because of age or whatever. What a hack.
Is that position necessary? What is it exactly that she does? Those are fair questions and I think at the core of what Julian was asking.

The ones not doing their jobs were the superintendent for not answering the question and the radio hosts for not pressing him to answer.

Doesn't her last name give you a clue as to WHY she continues to hold that position?? C'mon, people.

Angela Elefante, Rufie's kid. He (TJ) was well within his rights to do so. She's a public employee subject to scrutiny. I work for the UCSD and I will confirm a few things for you- she's been there since Jesus was a mere lad, getting a patronage job due to her daddy's being the mob underboss of Utica at the time; she is grossly overpaid for the position she holds, her level of education (high school) and the actual work she does (solitaire, minesweeper. couponing, recipe searches and online shopping, etc., do not qualify as work here). Her actual position is wholly irrelevant and would never be missed if it were cut. She feels statused, entitled and privileged, not to mention untouchable in her perch. She's an "old-school" Utica Italian and that's all that needs be said. Surprised anyone? Otherwise, she is a sweet lady.

Yes her level of education is high school that's why her title is Doctor and.she also holds a law degree.

I heard the call and Julian used her position -- and others like it -- as an example, asking why not consider cutting those instead of teachers. It's a legitimate concern and was a straightforward statement
