dr. richard jetter hamburg schools superintendent

HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – The superintendent of Hamburg schools says he’s thankful for the support of the community after two recent threats.

A week ago, someone left a threatening note on Dr. Richard Jetter’s vehicle and damaged his car. Then last Friday, someone egged his rental truck and property.

At Tuesday night’s board meeting, the superintendent said the support around him has been incredible.

“This is a great place and I’ve been extremely humbled with the support, the rally this week. The phone calls, the e-mails, the text messages. People from my previous school districts, from Ken-Ton, North Tonawanda. I’ve been hearing from a ton of people. It’s made me feel great,” Jetter said.

Police continue to investigate the two incidents. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
