What did the city and the district know, and when did they know it?

August 24, 2009

Friday’s Times Union has an update about Schenectady‘s own homegrown terrorist Steve Raucci.

As this story unfolds it almost reads like an episode of “Law and Order,” I keep waiting for the gavel to drop. (Dong Dong!)

Raucci is up on 26 counts of terrorism, arson, conspiracy and weapons possession.  All this while working as the head of the Schenectady School District Building Services Department as well as being the local CSEA union head.

The most chilling part of the story are the tapes submitted as evidence from wiretaps  and when Raucci was speaking to a state police informant.

He ” acknowledges being a “main suspect” in the crime and notes that a Rotterdam NY cop had been harassing a civil employee who is a member of (the) union, according to the filings. (Raucci )  goes on to explain that he “did it for a friend” and “didn’t even know the guy.” ”  (Dong Dong!)

So was Steve Raucci a hit man for the local union?  It begs the question how many people knew what was going on with this guy?  What did The Schenectady  School District (As well as those working for the city) know and when did they know it?
