I can think of no better way to begin this story than ……
On October 12th 1954 Mary gave birth to a girl named Joanne. When Joanne grew up she got a job at the Super Duper. That is where she met her husband to be Randy (little Emo) Bateman. Randy was a member of the high school baseball team and planned to become a State Trooper after he graduated. For whatever reason, that did not happen and Randy joined the Air Force just before or after the couple was married. After he was discharged the couple returned to OZ. On March 4th 1979 Joanne gave birth to a son Jeffrey (one of three children).
A year and one half after her father passed away Joanne had a new deed to the property drawn up (July 23, 2003) transferring the ownership of the property from her alone to herself and her son Jeffrey. According to the deed both Joanne and Jeffrey live at 208 E. Sixth St.

According to voter registration records Jeffrey Bateman first registered to vote March 29, 1997.
On October 11 2001 Jeffrey reregistered at his parents address (251 E 12th St) and gave 276 E 2nd St. as his previous voting address.
On July 9th 2005 Jeffrey again reregistered now claiming he lived at 208 E. 6th St.
According to Board of Elections records Jeffrey Bateman voted six times while he was allegedly living at 208 E. 6th St. Each time he used an absentee ballot.
Conversations with area residents indicated that no one has lived at 208 East 8th St. for many years. One person said they knew from 2005 through 2007 the house was vacant and thought it had been ever since the early 2000s.
An inquiry as to the NYS DMV drivers license records for Jeffrey Bateman returned a “Certification Of No Record Found.
However various internet sites and social media sites tell a different story. This is a list of contacts for Joanne Bateman as found on “MY Life”.
On October 10, 2010 Joanne renewed her NYS drivers license and gave her address as 251 E. 12th St.
On June 27,2011 Joanne signed a Mayoral designating petition for Thomas Gillen and she listed her address as 251 E. 12th St.
Jeffrey votes six times from that address but every time using an absentee ballot.
Joanne Bateman inherited a house from her parents back before the city went to full value assessments. Taxes at that time were relatively low and she was paying on an under assed valuation of $20,000. which was the result of a sale between relatives and not considered an arms length transaction. As the city was preparing to go to full value assessments she was looking at a jump from $2,075.00 to $63,000.00 in assed value. At the time the infamous Mike Parker was working in the Assessors office and his slight of hand became notorious in the following years. My guess is either Parker or Joanne's husband Randy Bateman or all three of them came up with the idea of putting their son Jeff's name on the property and changing the residency of herself and her son so they or he could apply for a STAR tax exemption. The deed states that Joanne and her son both live there. The Star application claims only Jeffrey Bateman does. Voting absentee from that address just adds insult to injury. This is fraudulent and illegal and just the sort of thing I have come to expect from the Batemans. Joanne is a teacher at Trinity School and aside from his lucrative job at the nuke plant Randy was ripping the taxpayers off to the tune of 50K+ while he was (Mr. Integrity) the mayor of Oswego.
It is not like they couldn't afford it. It is just that they are that god damn dishonest.
I am sure there is more evidence out there I just don't have it yet and I am not done yet.
