Since the first day of this year when the new board members took over Cynthia Hyde as refused to work with them. Last year she wouldn’t make a move without the town board holding her hand, this year she screams at them that they are not her boss. I guess when she had a board that was more than willing to do her job for her, she was more than willing to bow down to them. When a board comes in and wants her to do her own job, then she starts kicking and screaming. She has done nothing for this town since she has been in office. The water project was pretty much done, all the new board had to do last year was complete it, which even then they managed to fulfill some political payback to their supporters. Cynthia Hyde has spent her whole time in office trying to fry Evelyn Wood and the past administration, including Gail Seaman. When asked questions by the taxpayers she sits and smirks and refuses to answer questions. Her little group of followers berate people on social media on her behalf. Cynthia Hyde screams at taxpayers at meetings and tells them to sit down and shut up. Screaming at them as to how mean and nasty they are. (This can all be seen on video)
There are new problems for this town now. The town has now defaulted on a $300,000.00 BAN payment, which Cynthia Hyde is blaming Gail Seaman and Evelyn Wood and the previous administration for, yet the only names that appear on the paperwork for such BAN is Cynthia Hyde, Kathy Templeton, Mike Eddy and Joan Harris. All certified by the town clerk Susan Staples, yet it is all the fault of the previous administration. This is all a matter of public record, the documentation has been made public, that is how this tax payer has come to this conclusion.
Glens Fall National bank has frozen $300,000 dollars in the town accounts. The Reserve “saving” account and the remainder in the Consolidated account, which the town uses to pay bills with. This fund is extremely low, yet Cynthia Hyde continues to write checks without approval claiming there is a “ton of money”. She has refused to pay this debt off as directed to do so by the board. This debt is now collecting interest at a high rate, yet Supervisor Hyde could care less.
As of late, the Whitespace internet system that the town owns has been partially down. When the subscribers contact the Supervisor about this she yells at them, she did this to two subscribers at a meeting, again it is all on video. She tells them she is not going to fix it that they can go to Gail Seaman. It has gotten so bad that a main business of the town has left Whitespace and gone back to a satellite internet because it was losing business, yet the Supervisor still could care less. It is a personal vendetta with her.
The town board passed a resolution back in June for Gail Seaman to have the keys to Whitespace so she could do what she could to get it back up and running. Cynthia Hyde refuses to give the keys to her, yet last year had no issue with Kathy Templeton having them and keeping them at her home. She had no issue with Kathy Templeton’s husband Andy, cutting off the locks then going to Curtis Lumber to buy a cutting wheel and the town paid for this. In fact, Andy Templeton signed on the town’s Curtis lumber account!! He is not a town employee and Cynthia Hyde approved this. Again, there is documentation to prove this.
When Gail Seaman called Carlson in California to speak to them to get assistance in getting Whitespace backup and running for the paying subscribers, she was told by them that they had in fact been trying to reach the Supervisor and Fred Engelmann for WEEKS! The company Spectrum Bridge is going out of business and there are critical updates that need to be done before this change, so the system does not crash. Gail Seaman was told by Carlson that there was firewall with a VPN password that Fred Engelmann needed to give them, so they could access the system to do the updates. Gail Seaman was also told, that they were told by Cynthia Hyde not to speak to her (Gail Seaman), but to only speak to the Supervisor. After months of screaming to people to go to Gail and then Gail Seaman tries to do what she can to fix it, again Cynthia Hyde blocks her. All so she can blame Gail Seaman when things go wrong. Do you see a pattern here folks?
Cynthia Hyde is the Hitler of Thurman. She is ruining this town just to try to make Evelyn Wood and Gail Seaman and the previous administration look bad. The only taxpayers she cares about are the ones that supported her in the election. These are the ones that get town jobs and new water systems.
This taxpayer is fed up with the crooked politics that is going on in Thurman’s supervisor’s office. It is time for Thurman to be dissolved, but what other town would take this town now?? Cynthia Hyde and her little group of loud mouth supporters have created a divide in this town that can never be fixed. The blame game must stop!
Thank you, Cynthia Hyde for filling our town with hate! Thank you, Cynthia Hyde for ruining our town financially!
All we can do now everyone is pray for our town.
We can not ask the new board members to fix a problem like Cynthia Hyde. She is a little Hitler, she will do what she wants no matter what. Be sure to watch social media for the backlash this blog will generate. The vial evilness that will be spewed.
Lord God, please rid our town of evil and begin to heal us.
