Why is Gloversville so bad? Lets see high taxes no money and low paying to no jobs, and many from nyc who could not make it there and think there going to make it here by selling dirty dope , high rent for crappy old apartments, wich in some city its called cheaper rent..haha ,childmolester central and lexington retards are most of the population.Drunks well we have ALOT of them too it would be something if you seen there lazy asses ride bikes to albany for a job because they been caught at one time or another for a dwi " thats right they can claim ssi so that way the ones who work wont have it for when they retire, why not let all the molesters live near the high school or even near dubois housing, Then they raise tobbaco prices . there is alot of smokers and LOW INCOME people too that smoke. no money no smoke make people go CRAZY.ok so pretty much this is what i see . I'm sure our town isnt the only shit town around i think GOOD OLD NEW YORK STATE is the real reason everything is going down hill along with that crappy dayton king!!!! AS MAYOR

In reading both posts, my guess is that you are both mentally challenged. You are no better for using the reference in correctly as a lexington retard - my only hope is that you will learn to distinguish the correct term - mentally challenged. And I also pray that you never have to endure anyone in your family or yourself for that matter, to ever become as you so eloquently term a "lexington retard". Ignorance breeds ignorance - please take birth control.

Agreed! mentally challenged or mentally disabled is the proper term. I also agree with the birth control - end the population overflow and stop out of state people from coming in. They are the reason that this city has gone below poverty. We (our government) encourages welfare and Gloversville has a big welcome sign for the moochers to come and live here, for free! I drive down Main Street and I am sick to my stomach at the class of people walking, smoking, pushing baby carriages, with another one on the way. Go back to where you came from - but please stop living off those who work and want a better life. We are tired of helping those who don't.

I used to live in Gloversville! It was a shit hole when I lived there and that was back in the 80's! That city has a large population of inbreed rednecks, drunks, screw ups, wanna be tough guys, and child molesters. The average I.Q. is around 70 tops. A good night out on the town is drinking beer, bowling, drinking more beer, darts, smoking cigs, and drinking more beer. Besides the mullets, beat up hot rods, and buck teeth looking muthas, there is always the occassional rumpus room gathering at Quigley's. What a shit hole place to live. I feel sorry for anyone still stuck in that non-existant city.

Gloversville is a shit hole because the people make it like that! If the welfare drunken crackheads cared for themselves their homes would not be cockroach infested and dog poop and garbage laying all over. It's hard to find a job when you don't look for one. No just sit on your butt and collect a welfare check, get high, and drunk all day and night. Then after they get drunk beat and steal from each other, they call the police to solve their problems. When the police arrest these dirt bags they don't have money to pay the fines and court fees, so they sit in jail where they get cable TV, 3-meals,a bed with clean sheets and hot showers. For most that is more than they have on the outside. If everyone respected themselves and other's property G-ville would be better. For the most part the police take good care of the city for what they have and lack of support they get.

Gloversville is what happens when billionaires buy off politicians, are permitted to exploit cheap asian labor, and sell the fruits of that slant eyed labor in a giant warehouse that puts all the local retailers out of business, and all the local unskilled labor out of a job.

All you idiots think walmart or target are a good deal for you. Really? you think any of this is going to get better?

Stay drunk and high. Piss on the sidewalk and sleep in the gutter. It's all you deserve.

I just dont understand why.There are so many sex offenders and drug dealers and so on.Is this what kind of town you and your kids want to live in.Its to bad because it was a nice quiet little town and now forget it.As you heard you cant even walk the bike trail anymore at night or anywhere for that fact.Just like that poor girl that got raped at Quigs bar.I can go on and on about the things that went on in G'ville.Its just so sad to see this town go down hill.I just hope you people wake up before its to late.I think pretty soon we have to walk around with tazers and pepper spray.Maybe we should hire a bodyguard.LOL!!But anyway its just to bad that it is the way it is.I really do feel sorry for you.I hope one day it gets better for the kids sake.So tell me what you think about Gloversville.I want to know.
Because all the riff raff from NYC has crawled up the interstate to come to the land of the free handout. Fulton County loves to give away taxpayers money to these clowns that should be tossed back downstate. Look at the recent shootings...the shooters were from Brooklyn...no residence up here. Look at the slumlords that buy up decent housing and collect checks from DSS for this deadbeats! It's worse than the illegals coming in from Mexico!

One of Gloversvilles largest problems is Lexington--they own 50% of the properties in the city and DO NOT pay taxes. They constantly use the police and fire departments for "mandatory" fire drills, etc. THEY do not pay for these services. They are far worse users than DSS. You also have big bucks going out for a fire department that sits in their recliners watching their big screen tv or getting paid to sleep 8-10 hours while on shift!.....and what do you morons do??...elect a retired firefighters "out of touch and too good for everyone's" wife for city judge!!! Absolutely moronic and ludicrous!!! Then there's the "family" of slumlords complaining about their taxes, yet they continue to buy up properties to turn into slums while hiding behind their "store walls". These people are your "pillars"!!

I have lived in this area my entire life and I have watched it all go down hill. I currently live in Mayfield. I give a lot of credit to the people who do try to make a city with a rich history and heritage like Gloversville a better place but it is impossible with all this scum finding the town and liberal ideals in government. That is a lethal combination. The whole city is not bad though, I lived in a beautiful neighborhood on Oakland Avenue for a couple of years and never had any trouble. But it seems like the entire city could just bottom out... even parts of Kingsboro Avenue are getting bad!

The city has a huge wealth divide, terrible location and all fun activities are outlawed. We live in a reactionary republican controlled police state and city. Thats why it sucks. How about a little freedom to make people want to stay here? Other wise just put cameras up on every corner and arrest everyone for "drug crimes" and "sex crimes" which are not actually crimes at all. We have a 37% voting rate and most of the people are voting for republicans. This is what you get.
Actually....a "crime" includes a victim...so sex crime is a crime....the drug one, unless it's to a minor, lacks a victim..Other than that I agree with most everything on this post, and all other posts on this thread. Perhaps the change, which I see a lot about corrupt cops, should start with a little cop blocking and get the word out that way. Hold everyone accountable...see something say something.

It's always been a horribly run city!! There are few good paying jobs (and those, like fire dept., are given to out of towners), not enough well-trained police, and slum lords who are too good to live in the city where they own 50% of the properties !!
People think Lexington is wonderful because they employ so many people---WRONG--they are draining all of your social welfare resources!! They take much more than they give!!
You need to run that craphole like a business--get rid of the good ole boy network and think about your residents!

Crap unfortunately does run down hill! I'm not sure I agree with Gloversvillians....what has the uppity ups done to make Gville a better place?? You hire out of towners for decent paying city jobs ( ie fire -- most of whom already have a job or own a business and now take a second "cake" job for the bennies), vote in a judge who is a part time real estate attorney and doesn't have a clue, and vote in a part time mayor who knows nothing about running a multi million dollar business--- a city!! You allow out of towners to buy up properties and rehab them with grant monies via the taxpayers wallet( when they have the cash to do it themselves in a jar buried in their back yard)!!
Everyday people unfortunately don't vote-- it's you loyal Gloversvilleians that do!! Step up and REALLY do something. Don't let the above mentioned evil entities threaten a law suit to get things done their way !!
