The Hezitorial On Yonkers City Hall Internet Surveillance Operation of City Employees
YONKERS, NY — February 19, 2018 — All personnel should be aware that computer addresses visited by a person assigned to a specific computer can and have been tracked. Since Mayor Mike Spano’s Administration took the helm some 6-years ago, Yonkers Tribune has been the lone media outlet that is not accessible from the Yonkers Board of Education nor Yonkers City Hall. So even if you tried accessing the Yonkers Tribune you would be denied. Whew. You are safe after all. Yonkers City Hall don’t know how to plan! Yonkers Tribune is proud to be counted among others who are denied to be accessed by personnel from within those departments. Since all the other sites are said to be exclusively “porn” sites, it must be surmised that Yonkers City Hall regards the Yonkers Tribune a “porn” site.
The rationale Yonkers City Hall espoused for banning access to the Yonkers Tribune was to maintain employee focus to responsibilities at hand by all employees at all times. The inference here is that there should be no purchases made from any vendor during working hours. Since all media carry some advertising, it is prudent to note that Yonkers City Hall was deficient in explaining its conduct since it was derogatory to their claim that all employees were on task and never deficient in completing their workload. All other media was accessible.
It was Yonkers City Hall’s lame attempt to make a plausible tale that was proven over and over not to be an honest explanation. While it does not matter to the number of unique people who visit the Yonkers Tribune Website, in December 2017 we served 108,310 unique visitors. December is our slowest month because many people peruse sites to buy gifts for family and friends and peruse news sites less so than normal.
What is more disgruntling is that Yonkers City Hall’s deceitful tales is that they do not advise all their employees that they have kept a compendium of sites visited from every CPU for years. City Hall keeps track of where their employees visited. They keep track of where you have been and how much time you spent there.
Since Yonkers City Hall can block any site, it would show trust of their employees if they deny access to all employees so that they may accomplish the task at hand during the workday. Yonkers City Hall would not want to suffer if they purchased an item from Amazon, Walmart, or Cartier’s when they have time to do so at home or over lunch via their smart phone.
While Yonkers City Hall has the capacity to track all Internet traffic, except perhaps for having the evidence that Dr. Yazurlo, the former Yonkers Superintendent of Schools had downloaded “porn” to his TV? Why don’t they have that evidence? Perhaps it was “spin” rather than “fact” after all?
Yonkers City Hall is a weird duck. Quack, quack!
Destinations travelled to and from all “not to be visited websites” are allegedly tracked by Nick Borowitz, Internet Technology expert, hired first to engage in surveillance of Yonkers Board of Education personnel and presently to track those who work for Yonkers City Hall. If an employee is operating any computer, in any City Hall Department, be aware that your online travel is subject to being monitored and is being monitored. Yonkers City Hall knows where you have been. There was a time when Yonkers City Hall advised they did not want personnel to visit porn sites, but more specifically, they did not want people commenting on the Yonkers Tribune Website. Yonkers City Hall will be pleased to note that Yonkers Tribune readers can and do comment 24/7/365. So much for driving people from the Yonkers Tribune website.
It is however worth noting that Yonkers City Hall shows no reluctance to monitor every worker who operates behind a computer screen. So, even though you may have an interest to visit a risqué Website, it is best not to to so as to avoid any opportunity for Yonkers City Hall to impugne your name for visiting such websites. Please recognize that IT can fake your visit and you may not be able to prove you did not visit places they may have formerly advised you not to access. Even getting a warning sign that you are not to visit a website may be detrimental to your gaining employment elsewhere.
The takeaway… simple… Nick Borowitz is allegedly tasked to check your whereabouts on the Internet. He has access to every CPU throughout the City of Yonkers. People in the know advise Borowitz is the lone person trusted with this unique assignment. Is he tracking himself to ascertain if he has visited the Yonkers Tribune during his working hours? Has he visited any porn sites? Does he have any favorites? Which ones? Perhaps he shares them with Mayor Mike Spano. Is that the reason Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano wants to extend term limits so he can access the porn sites or does Mayor Spano prefer to access the Yonkers Tribune instead. Could Mayor Mike Spano be that kinky? Really? Say it ain’t so!
it seems Borowitz’s job is to get dirt on employees and to maintain a dossier on every employee who visits an “inappropriately website. Borowitzks job is to seemingly obtain web sites visited by every employee. His job is simply to monitor every CPU in the district. His job is to get dirt on YOU and to keep it. People in the know advise he has porn files and knows every alleged “pervert” in Yonkers. His job is to get dirt and hold it until it becomes a tool by which to have someone dismissed for some infraction or charge when it strikes City Hall’s fancy.
Worse still, for those engaged in doing the nasty out of wedlock with the opposite or same sex, note that over 125 e-mails of that special someone in their life, as well as their personal business, is all on file.
Perhaps there is a lawyer reading this who can advise if the City of Yonkers and its various departments have the “right” to engage in such snooping? Is CoY’s conduct entrapment? What is the probable cause for gathering information on the love interests of Yonkers employees? Does he maintain a file on any big wigs who do their thing believing the scuttlebutt it unaware? Well think again!!!
Who decides what is or what is not aberrant behavior? What qualifies such people to be judge and jury?
What do you think?
Should anything be done to stop this conduct? If so, what? Please advise.
