    Chantal, you’re not the only one who has come forward to tell the truth under oath so far.

    The documents that “disappeared” at City Hall and elsewhere have also now come back like Marley’s Ghost to corroborate your testimony and what you told the city council and the public. And get this - Ms. Wilson now wants to see them. To do exactly what with them? Same thing that was done under Kevin Plunkett before?

    Time for this cruel municipal charade to end. Mr. Schubert is not the only one the malefactors behind this mess have contempt for.


    Hi all!
    I just want "honest citizen" to know that I am still here. I didn't go away. I did not speak up because I am a disgruntle past employee. You obviously don't know me. It was killing me to lie to Mr. Schubert when I was working for the City. I lied at the time because I felt it was important to be a loyal employee and I thought for sure that somehow it would all work out. There were many consequences in me speaking up. The worst of all........ I knew that what i had to say would make some of the grestest city employees look bad. Some dug there own grave but others were inocent in the matter and i knew it was going to look bad for them. I lost some of the best friends I ever had. They are good people and all Rye residents should be proud to have them working for you!

    I spoke up and said what needed to be said. I don't want to write on myrye etc. Because I don't want to get involved in constantly defending my words and dealing with people picking my words apart.

    I have heard that Judge Latwin has recused himself from the Schubert harassment case. Does anyone know why?

    Yes, he served in WWII; that doesn't give him the right to monopolize city officials' time or to make alleged threats. For those of you who are always complaining about high taxes, why should we pay the city manager to spend 3 to 4 hours a day talking to someone who insists on being heard over and over and over again?


    According to Rye Police Lt. Joseph Verille, Schubert has been on the police’s radar since the
    beginning of the month when he began appearing at City Hall on a daily basis to see City Manager Scott Pickup. The conversations between the two were lengthy, sometimes between two and three hours, with Schubert admitting that he felt the need to press the issue. But during the span, he allegedly made some controversial comments that raised red flags.

    But after an encounter on March 18 Pickup told
    Schubert to leave. Schubert refused. After a brief exchange, Pickup called police to pursue a charge that had already been in the works.


    For all those who’ve recently reached out with offers to help here, thank you.

    The following are 2 older background videos on the Schubert’s Pond issue for your information and distribution –

    Need Change

    It's very very sad when everyone in Rye voted for a new administration because they felt it was time for change. Yet new people same results. French fry is in over his head. This Council is doing the same as the last. The Police Commissioner does whatever he wants despite a continue vote of no confidence. A puppet to the council. Rye is no longer the Rye all of us once knew. The old school is being priced out and the new school is coming in. Despite all the money in this town and yet still wasteful spending, empty store fronts and a country feel that is disappearing with development on every piece of free land.


    Yes “Change,” an interest by any of those outside groups would I think be now in the interest of justice here. It’s just that our expectations have always been that this problem – these prior bad acts - would have been solved through the last election process where we were promised the existing laws on the books of Rye would be utilized. A local solution rather than one controlled by outside influences is I believe always preferable. But Bob doesn’t have much more time with us, so he’s apparently improvising.

    Change in the wrong direction

    Has anyone sent the depositions from the Schubert case to the Westchester County’s District Attorney’s office or better yet to the US Attorney’s office? I also understand the FBI has a unit located on Bloomingdale Road in White Plains that investigates Public Corruption. Maybe they should have a copy of the depositions.


    I’ve been opposed to any form of civil disobedience by Bob in this matter for some time. Yet the fact remains that anyone who’s seen the array of evidence gathered here (at great expense) has been shocked. And so far, unfortunately, the city council refuses to join that group. So I’ll suggest once again that perhaps the Rye City taxpayers would be better served all around if the local investigation previously called for by Judge Carey, Councilman Sack and others were to begin, and all the expensive legal stonewalling we’re currently paying for is curtailed.

    Then perhaps the council might be able to contemplate a different array of charges – such as -


    A person is guilty of conspiracy in the sixth degree when, with intent that conduct constituting a crime be performed, he agrees with one or more persons to engage in or cause the performance of such conduct. Conspiracy in the sixth degree is a class B misdemeanor.


    A person is guilty of tampering with public records in the second degree when, knowing that he does not have the authority of anyone entitled to grant it, he knowingly removes, mutilates, destroys, conceals, makes a false entry in or falsely alters any record or other written instrument filed with, deposited in, or otherwise constituting a record of a public office or public servant. Tampering with public records in the second degree is a Class A misdemeanor.


    A person is guilty of issuing a false certificate when, being a public servant authorized by law to make or issue official certificates or other official written instruments, and with intent to defraud, deceive or injure another person, he issues such an instrument, or makes the same with intent that it be issued, knowing that it contains a false statement or false information. Issuing a false certificate is a class E felony.


    A person is guilty of obstructing governmental administration when he intentionally obstructs, impairs or perverts the administration of law or other governmental function or prevents or attempts to prevent a public servant from performing an official function, by means of intimidation, physical force or interference, or by means of any independently unlawful act, or by means of interfering, whether or not physical force is involved, with radio, telephone, television or other telecommunications systems owned or operated by the state, or a county, city, town, village, fire district or emergency medical service or by means of releasing a dangerous animal under circumstances evincing the actor's intent that the animal obstruct governmental administration. Obstructing governmental administration is a class A misdemeanor.


    A person is guilty of unlawful prevention of public access to records when, with intent to prevent the public inspection of a record pursuant to article six of the public officers law, he willfully conceals or destroys any such record. Unlawful prevention of public access to records is a violation.


    A person is guilty of criminal tampering in the third degree when, having no right to do so nor any reasonable ground to believe that he has such right, he tampers with property of another person with intent to cause substantial inconvenience to such person or to a third person. Criminal tampering in the third degree is a class B misdemeanor.


    A public servant is guilty of official misconduct when, with intent to obtain a benefit or deprive another person of a benefit:
    1. He commits an act relating to his office but constituting an
    unauthorized exercise of his official functions, knowing that such act is unauthorized; or
    2. He knowingly refrains from performing a duty which is imposed upon him by law or is clearly inherent in the nature of his office. Official misconduct is a class A misdemeanor.


    A person is guilty of perjury in the second degree when he swears falsely and when his false statement is (a) made in a subscribed written instrument for which an oath is required by law, and (b) made with intent to mislead a public servant in the performance of his official functions, and (c) material to the action, proceeding or matter involved. Perjury in the second degree is a class E felony.
