David Landau – A One Trick Pony?

I’ve been interested in the up coming election for Delaware County Council in November now for a few months, thanks to David Landau moving into my town of Clifton Heights. I have visited both parties web sites, and although both talk a good talk, Fizzano Cannon, McGarrigle, and Lewis of Delco 2007 have EXPERIENCE and have served Delco well according to my observations, abit some issues that I’ll describe below.

Wasteful Spending:

To David: Why spend how many thousands of dollars to rent a campaign HQ here in Clifton? That is wasteful spending. Myself and other people residing in the “Blue Collar” section of Delaware County are quite content with the way things are running, and do not want to see Delco be consumed by Philadelphia, like it did to Mayfair, Roxborough, and the greater northeast, an agenda that you Democrats have been trying to do for decades!

Response to your Problem:

I asked Nick Micozzie to look into a matter concerning a neighbor, and he responded. So did his Son and also Tom Judge, all Republicans serving Delco. They actually responded to me, so I in turn feel that they are worthy of being elected. That’s what gets people elected. To be fair to you, your spokesman, George Matysik, has responded to me via email in a positive way, and insists that you are sincere in your ambition to serve us.


There is one issue that David brought forth, that has me interested. “The one trick pony issue” mentioned as the title to this post that has me interested in him. It’s called Cronyism. I know of several people who own companies who have a lock on contracts in the county and have had for years, and why they do is not a secret anymore. Unfortunately, this issue is a non issue, as most voters in Delaware County are not self employed, and couldn’t give it another thought. Another thing is the issue of Upper Darby, once a decent place to live, now turned into an extension of West Philadelphia. David, what would you be willing to do to resolve this?

Number ONE Problem:

What I want County Council to do is to BAN Section 8 housing in Delaware County. Period. Scumbags who play the system represent over 95 percent of the applicants. Our so called “Tax Dollars” fund these people, while people like myself, pay top dollar to live in the area, not to mention NO HEALTH CARE. These are MY issues, and many other voters who will decide the outcome in November. Enough of ranting tonight, I need to find some work to do tomorrow as a self employed electrician so I can pay my bills.

Upper Darby High School – The Gloves Come Off

Well it seems that the gloves have come off concerning my family and the Upper Darby School District. In a nutshell, my Son was attacked in the hallway (With lots of those new digital surveillance cameras in place) on October 19th, 2006 by a kid named “Chuck” S. The attack was unprovoked and occurred at around 7:15 AM. My son had his hands in his pocket and his backpack on his back with a heavy coat.

The thug, “Chuckie Boy”, cold cocked my son and continued to pummel him. He regained his sense of awareness, and did what any normal young man would do. He defended himself. The so called “fight” was soon broken up and both my Son and “Chuckie Boy” were suspended. This was far from over though. Two days later, on Saturday, my Son, my Wife, and his fellow “Metal band” members were in Philly at a gig they were playing when all their cell phones were going off around the same time. Seems that “Chuckie Boy” and about 15 to 20 of his “Homies” were in Clifton Heights, looking to “finish” my Son off. Rumors were that these punks were out to “Cap them”, as in to shoot them. Enough is enough I said, actually trying to let the “punks” know that I would do anything including go to jail to thwart their plan.

As a direct result of my son, who ain’t a coward and could easily take on Chuckie Boy in a heartbeat one on one telling me and my wife that he was scared to death to return to the High School as he was a marked man by these “Scumbags“, we decided to remove him and Home School him, painful as it was (We bother graduated from UDHS). Well now I thought this was over, my son doing quite well at Penn Foster, and working part time.

On 2/21/2007, a certain Heather M. King, Assistant Principal of Upper Darby high School filed two “Private Criminal Complaints” against my son, based on what I guess was the so called “Fight” that occurred in October. Especially read pg. 6, about their deal with us and “Time For Teens”, “Either do as we say or pay a heavy fine?”

My Son can either :

“A”. Plead “Not Guilty” “B”. plead “Guilty” or “C”, attend two “Time For Teens” sessions, at a cost of $100.00 dollars, while admitting no guilt and for “first time offenders”. So tell me, does this sound like Extortion or what? Who funds this program? Are they a part of Upper Darby School District? A woman (Ms. King) files a “PRIVATE” criminal complaint yet it’s in the behalf of her employer, the Upper Darby School District, basically threatening me (As the bread winner) in the family to shell out about a $$$ grand if we don’t take “Their Deal” = TOTAL BS!
My Son was attacked and retaliated (As would any NORMAL Person) in that instance. I taught my Son to do just that, not run away and have the thug feel that he/she can do it over and over with NO disciplinary action whatsoever. My Wife is going to take “The Deal”, against my wishes.

There must be someone who understands the law of the land that can give me legal recourse in the above matter. ACLU? Counter file a Private Civil Suit “in excess of $50,000 of course” against Ms. King, Mr. Kramer, Mr. Bell, and the rest of the UD Administration for harassment, failing to protect my child, not adhering to President Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act? Or just hope that Judge Cullen sees the light and dismisses the case based on the fact that the charges are in fact to me a sure fire way of covering tthe School District’s asses from any civil law suits that may have or already been brought by myself or other parents that are disgusted with the “Babysitting” “Gerrymandering” and “Racist” policy of UDHS?

Anyway… I’ll let you all know what happens on 3/20/2007.
