Hamburg Superintendent Puts Egging Behind Him


HAMBURG, NY- The Superintendent of Hamburg Schools says he's putting last weekend's egging incident behind him.

Dr. Richard Jetter said Tuesday night that he is staying positive and moving forward, after someone threw eggs at his rental car over the weekend.

"The egging is kind of a dead story right now. It's a done deal. People have been very supportive and we're ready to move on to lunch instead of dwindle on breakfast," Jetter said before Tuesday night's school board meeting.

This is the second recent attack against Jetter after a person hit his car and left a threatening note last week.

Hamburg Superintendent's car gets Egged


HAMBURG, NY- For the second time in less than a week, Hamburg's Superintendent of schools has been the target of a crime.

Someone egged Superintendent Dr. Richard Jetter's rental car over the weekend, just a few days after a driver smashed into his car and left a threatening note while he was at a budget hearing.

Jetter, however, isn't letting the crimes phase him, tweeting out the following after his car was egged.

School Board President Dave Yoviene thinks despite this latest incident, the district will move forward.

"I guess it's just a small, very small, group of people, almost individuals that want to perpetuate this and keep giving the black eye to Hamburg and keep the stuff in the news media," Yoviene said.

Yoviene spoke with Jetter Sunday and says he's in good spirits.
