Green says censure won't stop her


School Board member accused of misleading public
By Doug Ireland
 The Eagle Tribune Fri Jul 18, 2014, 12:14 AM EDT

PLAISTOW — Timberlane Regional School Board member Donna Green, who was censured by her colleagues Wednesday, said the reprimand won’t change how she conducts herself.
The Sandown resident said yesterday that even though seven of her eight fellow board members voted to censure her, she will continue to seek “transparency” from the school district administration, especially when it comes to spending issues.
“Censure has no bearing on me,” Green said. “I’m not going to change my behavior.”
Board members said during the nearly three-hour special meeting Wednesday that Green’s behavior is having a disruptive impact on the board and district.
They said Green often makes inaccurate and inflammatory remarks during meetings and in her personal blog on district issues. Her comments are damaging the board’s credibility and integrity, the members said.
Board member Rob Collins, who made the censure motion, said there have been nearly 70 inaccuracies in her blog since she joined the board in March.
The comment prompted Green to rise from her chair and say, “I’m done.” She then left the meeting.
Shortly before Collins’ remark, Green refused to attend a 10-minute nonpublic session called by Peter Bealo to discuss “reputation.”
After Green left, the board voted in favor of the censure — the equivalent of a public scolding. Chairman Nancy Steenson said a censure letter would be drafted for the board’s review at its meeting in August.
Green said yesterday afternoon she didn’t learn of the censure until a friend phoned her and that she had not been notified by the board.
She said she even stopped by the school administrative office yesterday to review district invoices, but no one mentioned the censure vote. She called the vote “a public humiliation.”
Green admitted the move wasn’t a complete surprise, explaining that Collins has said in the past he would ask that she be censured. The special meeting was called by Steenson to clarify the district’s position on key issues Green has challenged.
Those issues included the district’s transfer-of-appropriations policy, a health trust refund and an auditor’s report.
The Wednesday night meeting became heated as Green queried administrators, including Superintendent Earl Metzler, and board members questioned her actions.
Among her concerns was that the board did not have enough control over overexpended line items in the school budget.
“We are falling down on budgeting,” Green said. “We are also falling down on oversight.”
Board members told her administrators retained the authority to make those budgetary decisions. Steenson said Metzler and his staff have followed the district’s policy and done nothing illegal or unethical. Green disagreed.
Board members also said Green refused to attend policy meetings or meet with Metzler in his office to discuss issues.
Green said one meeting was held on Passover and she couldn’t attend. Another was held while Green said she was out of the country. She said she would only discuss district issues in public.
Green issued a statement yesterday, questioning Collins’ claims about inaccuracies in her blog and asking him to outline each one.
She also denied accusations that she would not work with her colleagues and said censuring a member would discourage other residents from running for the board.
“My blog has always been open to public comment and correction should it be challenged,” she said. “The real root of my censure is my is my insistence on financial transparency at Timberlane to get a handle on the excessive cost increases we have experienced while enrollment is plummeting.”
Board member Kelly Ward, also of Sandown, abstained from voting Wednesday but did not say why. Ward later said he did not have enough information to cast an informed vote.
Steenson, the only board member authorized to speak to the media, refused to comment on Green’s censure.
Green is serving her first term on the board. She was elected in March.

First of all, Nancy Steenson should put on a jacket as her attire is unprofessional.

The comments about 'this is the way the district has always done it', don't satisfy me.

Dr. Metzler's said it was a simple minded view and used uncontrolable costs, such as snow removal, to justify his position. Mrs. Green used controlable cost examples to illustrate her point, such as book purchases. Clearly, the cost of books won't exceed the plan by a significant %, while heating costs may. Dr. Metzler's view is off course and a smoke screen.

With out what you call cyber bullying there wouldn't be any course of truthfulness coming forward for us all to see and sort out let alone act on. What you call cyber bullying is the way of we the common every day tax paying people who are paying the bills for the people who cause the problems for the town and the resulting costly settlements . It is time to throw out these same jerks even if it if, as you say,cyber bullying which it is not. Its the truth and truth always wins in the end and the end is near. Why is it you jerks keep on trying to defend your selves by blogging here with your constant foolish attacks of saying oh my !!!! the cyber bullying has to stop. Why not stop the tactics that are seen through by so many of us and do what your supposed to is a question you should consider doing for every ones own good. Think WE instead of I and ME only.

People have always dubbed me the "crazy cat lady". Since I was a young girl, I've been fascinated with anything cat related. I've always had one or many cats in my life since the day I was born. I've been a collector of cat paraphernalia, a foster-mom for the OSPCA & PetSave facilities, and just a cat lover all around. Even though I'm certain there are crazier cat ladies out there than me, I always enjoyed the nickname, so I felt it was a perfect fit for this blog

BRENTWOOD — A longtime Plaistow police detective will go on trial today, facing simple assault and criminal threatening charges.

George Wickson, 41, of Plaistow is charged with threatening a man with a knife and grabbing a woman by her buttocks and hair during an incident in May 2013, when he was off duty.

Wickson also tried to kiss the same woman and threw a beer at another woman, according to indictments.

The 14-year member of the Plaistow police force faces five charges, including simple assault and criminal threatening charges. Opening arguments are to begin at 10 a.m. today in Rockingham Superior Court following jury selection Monday.

Wickson, who has been on unpaid administrative leave for 13 months, maintains his innocence.

He was attending a social gathering in Newton when he allegedly pointed a knife at a 22-year-old man’s neck and said, “Shut up or I’ll slice you,” an indictment said.

Wickson faces a felony criminal threatening charge for that incident. He could spend three and a half to seven years in prison and faces a $4,000 fine if convicted of the charge.

A grand jury indicted Wickson on the five charges in October. The four other charges are misdemeanors. They include two counts of simple assault and single counts each of criminal threatening and attempted simple assault.

Since Wickson is a well-known local police officer, interim County Attorney James Boffetti said the case will be prosecuted by Rose-Marie Balboni of the Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office to avoid a potential conflict of interest. Wickson is represented by attorney Brian Lavallee.

Plaistow Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald said he could not comment on the trial. He has said Wickson was a good police officer with a clean record, but the town would not tolerate any misconduct.

It's the lack of transparency that is questioned here. There are too many colsed meetings, hidden issues and dealings when there are clear conflicts of interest. If they were not corrupt, there would be honesty and they would be forthcoming with information. They are not.

BTW, calling people names doesn't prove anything except that you are threatened.

Anonymous said...

Obviously, no one who did not participate in the meeting or otherwise gain access to the sealed minutes knows why they were sealed. What we do know is that...

On February 25, 2008, Scott Buatti admitted to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers that he subscribed to child pornography sites and had downloaded at least eight videos of little girls. On March 18, 2008, ICE met with Superintendent La Salle and Assistant Superintendent Feneberg and shared this information. On March 20, 2008, the School Board held a nonpublic session and sealed the minutes for 99 years.

For FOURTEEN months after this nonpublic session Scott Buatti was allowed continue to serve as phys ed teacher and girls soccer coach.

There is no doubt in my mind that the school board and SAU discussed the risks of allowing an admitted pedophile ti continue to prowl the middle school locker rooms. Obviously, they decided that they were willing to risk the well being of the children and the details of this discussion is what has been hidden from public view for more than six years.

https://public.timberlane.net/sau/trsb/Meeting%20Minutes/2007-08/03%2020%2008%20TRSB.pdf

Two current school board members have told me they would make the minutes public and both have since withdrawn the offer. One said he wouldn't bring the matter up because there were not enough votes to unseal the minutes. The other, AFTER being elected, and AFTER reviewing the minutes, said there was nothing in the minutes and has not since been willing to discuss the matter at all.

TRSD has had alcohol, drug, rape, and pedophile issues in the building. Local media has noted that TRSD is tight lipped on controversial issues...

http://www.eagletribune.com/newhampshire/x546151446/Timberlane-officials-quiet-on-controversial-issues

This spans two administrations and quite a few school board elections, so it stands to reason that it is the institution that is corrupt.

3:58, I have to accept what you've written about Mr. Buatti but there is some thing that bothers me. If he ,Buatti, confessed to having been going on porn sites and having at least eight videos of young girls. I can agree with most people having the right to open a porn site and it is easily enough to do by any one with their computer if they chose to do so. What gets me is that the TRSD members allowed Mr. Buatti to teach and coach for fourteen months after his admission to the offenses. Could there be some circumstance that isn't or hasn't been addressed in the matter? Could it be he is not guilty of wrong doing while in or out of school hours and his contact with students? The TRSD officials must have known some thing we don't to allow Mr.Buatti to be employed for the fourteen months that prevented further action on their part. To me I feel Mr.Buatti was railroaded because he was never brought before a court for his actions by the I.C.E. or the school district or any other person that has mandated reporting rights in their employment. What I'm saying is the TRSD board has failed to bring this to a real end by not allowing the minutes to be open to the public they serve. Do you think if Mr. Buatti were to be asked to allow the opening of the nonpublic meeting would he? Opening the non public meeting record would or could possibly be the real end of this matter and it could clear up some if not all his accused past actions and his name,whats left of it......jmho

Don't you think that if by opening the minutes his name would be cleared he would have done so? He admitted it!!

It's my guess they are protecting themselves by sealing the minutes. Maybe there's proof someone else was also guilty or they were otherwise culpable.

He admitted it to ICE after being confronted. They accused him based on the fact that his credit card was used to pay for the videos. It was an ICE issue because the web sites were not in the US. They took his computer. TRSD 'sanitized' any computers he might have used for the same purpose.

When Buatti was finally charged, he was put on paid leave then unpaid. When La Salle was asked for comment, he pretended to be surprised then back tracked the next day...

[La Salle] said comments he made to a reporter about Buatti's indictment on Monday were mischaracterized, saying the indictments were "news" to him, not "new."

http://www.eagletribune.com/newhampshire/x1650951530/Timberlane-teacher-indicted-on-child-pornography-charges/print

The superintendent said the school is responding to the indictments by calling upon a crisis team made up of school counselors and psychologists in case students need to speak with someone. The crisis team is typically used when students have to deal with a death or other difficult news.

Scumbags. All of them. Rob Collins had been sworn in as a school board member a week before. This was his first act as a school board member. They sealed the minutes to protect their own reputations. As if.

@8:20, the minutes are not posted to the web site and Metzler has ignored requests to view the minutes repeatedly. He is the de facto chair of the school board -- his office prepares agendas and runs the meetings.

Anonymous said...

He was the gym teacher and he worked next to the locker rooms where children change for gym and sports. ICE met with the school. My guess is that photograghy revealed that photos of students attending TRSD and whom were known to those at the meeting, possibly the photos were taken at the school, so they sealed the minutes in response.

Anonymous said...

La Salle and the school board repeatedly denied that any of the allegations involved the school. I don't trust them at their word, but Buatti was never charged with anything except downloading kiddie porn.

Can you imagine the outcry if this involved an employee of a church or a boy scout volunteer. Nothing would be sealed.

Scumbags...did I mention that?

Anonymous said...

Yes. The meeting must have devulged a connection to the school, more than just that he worked there. Can this be challenged in court via 91a ?

Anonymous said...

No doubt the La Salle, Feneberg, legal counsel, and the school board discussed their obligations, liabilities, and potential actions to distance themselves from the matter (like sealing the minutes for 99 years and sanitizing any school computers that might have been used by Buatti). They probably made a deal with Buatti that let him prowl and get paid until indicted in exchange for silence on the matter.

Check who retired at the end of the year -- he may have implicated others. The only thing we know for sure is that they are not protecting Buatti's reputation -- he has been found guilty, sentenced, and is serving time.

BTW, a TRSD teacher vouched for his character at a hearing for early release.

Again, this is not an isolated incident. We also had a high school teacher (Kevin Goddu) who raped a student. Another teacher whose name slips my mind had to password protect a myspace page that advocated the use of illegal drugs and deviant sexual behavior.

I don't think it's a New Hampshire culture problem. Most of the people who run our schools are from Massachusetts. People who aspire to leadership roles in academia tend to be left of center and most lefties are tolerant of deviant lifestyles.

I think it would be best to dissolve the TRSD altogether. The layer of complexity and expense has not improved the schools. In fact, the performance of the students has trended down since TRSD's inception while cost and corruption have soared.

There can not be any less expected than the truthful response of the board which appears to be far less than what has been brought out to the public by member Green . 8/11@8:29 AM A question is asked of you... If there is no conspiracy of evil going on - just differences of opinions then just what is really going on that has brought this situation to this point ? Please don't tell me you wont answer as I feel you are a member of the board trying to cover your and fellow board members backsides.

I think and feel the board just isn't doing its job of representing the communities involved in the district. When the school officials want some thing it should be looked into more detail. The reason being they seem to want things more for themselves and get them than for the student educational services we provide by paying our taxes. I do watch them on tv but not every time they meet. If they are members of the communities trying to do their jobs then they would pay attention to just that-- their jobs of representing us and not the wants of the administrators sitting in the building on Greenough Road. Their job is to ask for improvements in our educational needs and system. They seem to go over board in their own wants and personal incomes. We all have to tighten our financial belts and that means them too. JMHO of course!!

Green Threatened with Criminal Charge

Here is the timeline of the action Dr. Metzler has taken against me which has culminated in police involvement. For background on “the incident” that was used as a pretext for what follows see my blog posting of July 24, “Target Acquired!“
___________________________________

Mrs Green – Today it was reported to me that you were both disrespectful and harassing to several employees. Of course I will investigate this report and if validated I will need to limit your access to the SAU. This is both disturbing and unfortunate. I will also be consulting with both the Plaistow Police Department and district council.
Respectfully,
Dr. Earl F. Metzler II

Mrs. Green,

It has been reported to me that an investigation is being conducted by the Superintendent’s office concerning your interactions with an SAU staff member on July 24, 2014. Until such time as the investigation is complete, you are hereby barred from entering upon the SAU #55 premises without the expressed written permission of the Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Metzler will make appropriate arrangements for you to conduct your duties as a school board member.

Dear Mrs. Green,

I have been assign to investigate an incident that occurred on July 24, 2014 at approximately 11:30am at the SAU 55 Office . This incident took place at the SAU 55 Office which is located at 30 Greenough Road, Plaistow, New Hampshire.

On August 1, 2014 at 8:52am, I received an e-mail from my Communication Center Supervisor stating you had called the Plaistow Police Department and requested a return phone call in reference the incident at SAU on July 24, 2014. The call back number you left was 974-0758. On the same day I returned your call between 3-3:30pmapproximately and was unable to make contact with you. However, I did leave a voicemail. The purpose for me reaching out to you at this time, is to have you come down to the Plaistow Police Department give your side of the incident. I also will need a written statement completed as well. I look forward to your cooperation in this investigation.

Please give me a call today (August 4, 2014) so we can set up the interview. I certainly appreciate in advance your time and cooperation in this matter.

Respectfully,

Lt. William M. Baldwin

I don't think she has to go to the pd when commanded unless they are going to charge her for something. She's an elected official that was in the building to do her job. Its ounds to me like Mrs. Green is the one being harassed and she ought to be hiring a lawyer and filing charges against the board and maybe Baldwin.

Why is he involved anyway? Conflict!!

Herr Metzler has no right to assign but he has the right to ask the acting chief to look into his complaint. The acting chief then can assign an officer to the task. It would be of poor choice by her to assign any officer that is involved in this matter to investigate the complaint. The Lt. is in conflict of interest and should have said as much to who did assign this task to him. I doubt if the acting chief did the assigning but I do believe the Lt. took it on himself to assign himself to the task. Shame on the acting chief if my thoughts here are the truth. It doesn't make her wish of becoming the permanent chief easy to be a reality does it? The acting or permanent chief is supposed to be aware of all things in the department that are going on. JMHO

Your telling young people its ok for them to drink by saying the police department will take them home w/o arrests being made. I hope the department will tell parents and the kids you have made a stupid and false statement. Police have more important other things to do than being baby sitters for under age alcohol use. The next thing you'll be saying is it is ok to let them use drugs w/o being arrested. You are a classic nut case and I hope you get caught for saying what you did here.

Anon.@ 2:19 , I find that hard to believe. Maybe you took the story you've presented here out of context or heard what you wanted to hear. They may have done it a couple of fridays ago but the circumstances may have been different than everyone have knowledge of. If it be as true as you seem to say then the drunk drivers should be let go ,much to the detriment of the sober drivers on the road. Police are not supposed to be selective in their job duties favoring one alcohol related incident over another. That includes adults as well. Sorry for calling you a nut. Maybe I should have said your another of the many who are selective in what they hear and, yes!!, some who see what they want to see instead of what is real.

MEANWHILE BACK IN ATKINSON A SELECTMAN PLAYS WITH HIMSELF
Posted by Ed Naile

Guess who, after being asked a few simple, embarrassing questions about his private, personal, non-profit for the elderly, went behind the only camera he thought was on and gestured with his crotch at two CNHT members who were asking questions at an Atkinson Selectman’s meeting.

If you guessed former Police Chief and now Selectman Phil Consentino you probably know how Atkinson has been run for the last thirty years.

I have been a tad late in posting articles about the Atkinson Pervert but have freed up a few minutes to expose him again.

Oh, he has his defenders in that crooked little town because he used his police badge for years as a political tool – See the scam going down in Portsmouth for an example of how this works.

This Portsmouth scam perpetrated on an elderly person is an example of what can happen when you let a police officer or chief use his department as a tool in deriving something of value from people he is supposed to protect.

Consentino used his police position and “Elderly Affairs” program to solicit signatures on petitions from within the cruisers turned elderly taxis.

Now he has a defined voter block which has allowed this pervert to sexually harass a female police department employee, walk away free of any charges, and get elected selectman after being fired from the police department.

So here we are Atkinson. The Crotch Master is at it again, a seventy year old acting like a monkey in a cage.

But then again, he was elected to a position that requires him to come out in public once in a while and “expose” himself to the taxpayers. That’s sort of like a monkey in a 91-A cage.

Congratulations Atkinson Brown-nosers.

You have your man in office.

When does the next sexual harassment lawsuit start?

Keep the comedy rolling Phil – the camera is on.

Now that the school year has begun, Herr Metzler's brown shirts are again out in force. Mrs. Green has posted their letter of censure on her blog. She has also posted her response.

I have it on good authority that the letter was prepared by Metzler's counsel for the School Board. The chair did not even sign the letter prepared for her.

The letter begins with a bit of legalese that allows Metzler to slander Mrs. Green without conseqence...

Mrs. Green has made over sixty statements on her blog that are either taken out of context, misinformation, inaccurate, disrespectful and/or inappropriate.

He has implied that she is taking things out of context and misinforming people without accusing her or providing evidence of this. In fact, Mrs. Green is a very careful fact checker. Nothing cited is out of context, misinformation, or inaccurate.

Metzler's escape hatch is "disrespectful and/or inappropriate." By adding this, he can say that all of the citations were disrespectful (which is laughable) or inappropriate (citing the School Board's long history of issuing gag orders).

No one signed the letter. No one objected.

I object. We should all object. Let's all show up at the deliberative session wearing green shirts (to make it more difficult for the moderator to count our votes) and restore some order.

In a few short hours, we can do the job the budget committee and school board have been abdicating for decades.

It probably makes sense for Danville and Sandown to form a two school co-op given their proximity, declining enrollment, and the existence of the three buildings. There is no need for a School Administrative Unit. That function was created as a clerical role to ensure compliance with state programs that netted extra funding for the schools. Now it's a retirement plan for 'well qualified' teachers. Three principals, three assistant principals, should be plenty to run a Sandown/Danville Co-op.

Who asks this question? My answer is as follows....It is the choice of one to make as to where they want to work and if they are placed in the position.The only way for transfers are only if there is no one capable of filling the job within the department. That is not the case in either town is it? What the bone of contention is is that when they TRANSFER as a Sgt. or above in rank to another place of work they are stopping other candidates already there from advancing at there place of employment. The question is why did he transfer in the first place when he had the opportunity to be chief. Granted he had to wait until the chief retired or as is or was the eventual case being fired. Would you want to work in law enforcement knowing you wont be given the chance to advance,- after working for a lengthy period of time-, because of this happening to you?

Plaistow police lieutenant investigated

PLAISTOW — The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office and Rockingham County attorney's office are investigating longtime police Lt. William Baldwin for "irregularities" that occurred during two recent traffic stops, Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald said.

Fitzgerald confirmed Friday the two agencies have begun looking into allegations that Baldwin, also an Atkinson selectman, may not have followed standard police procedures during the two stops.


But Baldwin said Friday evening he believes he is being unfairly targeted by another member of law enforcement who disagrees with the "discretion" he used during the two stops, both within the last month.

"I do the best to what my discretion allows me to," he said.

Neither Baldwin, Fitzgerald nor interim police Chief Kathleen Jones said they could comment in detail about the traffic stops nor the allegations while the matter is under investigation.

Baldwin, on scheduled time off for the next week, said he's only trying to do his job.

"It's just disheartening," Baldwin said. "There are two sides to every story, and I take my job very seriously to keep the community very safe."

Baldwin said he's not sure who is making the allegations against him.

"I don't know the motive," he said. "I put my life and soul into the job. People just come after you and target you. It's someone who doesn't care for me here."


Baldwin said he's yet to speak to investigators from the attorney general's office or the county attorney's office.

Interim County Attorney James Boffetti said he could not comment on pending investigations. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young could not be reached for comment Friday.

Fitzgerald said he's waiting to receive further reports and had yet to speak to Baldwin, who has worked in Plaistow since 2011. Jones has spoken to Baldwin about the matter, he said.

"We will make appropriate decisions to make sure we keep the highest standards of policing intact," Fitzgerald said.

Jones, who was deputy chief, has led the department since the death of police Chief Stephen Savage in July. She said town officials won't hesitate to act if Baldwin is guilty of any misconduct.

"If anything has been done wrong, we will take swift action as needed," Jones said.

Fitzgerald said despite the allegations against one of the department's highest-ranking officers, Plaistow police do an excellent job serving the community.

"We have an outstanding department," he said.

Baldwin was a member of the Atkinson Police Department for 14 years before leaving for Plaistow.

Earlier this year, he applied for the Atkinson police chief's job after Philip Consentino was dismissed by selectmen. Baldwin later withdrew his application, saying he had doubts about leaving Plaistow.


Baldwin also served in the U.S Marine Corps for 10 years and has been a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve, taking leave from his police career to serve in the Middle East.

He is also a former Timberlane Regional School Board member.

Ms. Green should be the one to replace Herr Metzler after his potential firing for just the under handed way his wife got the $50,000 contract let alone the action he took to stone wall Ms. Green from doing her duty as a member of the board.
