I'll bet his name is Dermont Smyth. He is a special rep for Queens Borough Office. He came -uninvited- to my school today around 8 to specifically flier mailboxes. He treated my CL with... disdain.

Instead, he placed fliers in mailboxes and was at some point seen roaming around the first floor by another teacher.
