HAMBURG An act of vandalism met Hamburg Central School District Superintendent Richard Jetter as he left the budget meeting at Union-Pleasant Elementary School at about 8 p.m. last night.
Jetter noticed that the driver's side door of his car had been damaged by another vehicle and a folded piece of paper on his windshield, slid beneath a purple flier a board candidate had left on all vehicles in the parking lot, read "Watch your back" and called him a "sleeze bag."
The note was typed and included no signature.
Jetter, two administrators, three board members and Hamburg Mayor Thomas Moses all witnessed the vandalism.
Hamburg village police are investigating the crime.
The budget that was discussed at that meeting, if passed, will result in higher elementary class sizes, cuts in foreign languages, elimination of intramurals and restructuring the guidance, detention and music programs next year. A total of 16.6 full-time positions would be eliminated, most through attrition. There would be a reduction in full-time staff of 4.8 positions.
A full story will appear in next week's edition of The Sun.
